5 Themes Alanis Morissette Should Revisit On Her Next Album

After four years of near-silence, Alanis Morissette has announced her eighth studio album, Havoc and Bright Lights. In a statement describing the inspiration, she calls Havoc “a snapshot of what I currently obsess about, care about, and what strikes me at 4 in the morning in my most introspective moments.” Which, cool and all, but there are a few things I’d personally like Alanis to revisit.

Lohan Roundup

Back together! Lindsay Lohan sparks speculation she's reunited with ex Samantha Ronson after 'cosy night out'

It's been two years since they broke up their romantic union. But now it appears Lindsay Lohan and her ex-girlfriend Samantha Ronson have reignited their former flame. The Mean Girls actress, 25, reportedly cosied up to Ronson in a club in New York on Tuesday evening. And they sparked speculation they've reunited after they were reportedly spotted leaving Le Baron hand in hand.

A source told 'Lindsay and Sam were whispering and laughing and they left the club holding hands. 'They didn't care who saw them, and they definitely seem to be back on. It was just like the old days -- they couldn't get enough of each other!' Lindsay was spotted leaving her hotel room in the Big Apple the following day looking fresh and happy in her sleek get-up, sparking speculation she was glowing from her evening out the night before. She wore an all black ensemble, which consisted of a long coat with skinny jeans and boots. And Lindsay finished her look off with a white vest top underneath and sunglasses, while she wore dainty silver necklaces around her neck. She wore her reddened locks down and wavy following her evening out with Samantha.

GAGA In Hong Kong

Lady Gaga flashes a smile while leaving her hotel en route to her Born This Way Ball concert on Wednesday (May 2) in Hong Kong.

“Hong Kong show tonight! So much to do, working away like a busy bee. Ready to tear the face off this city,” the newly single 26-year-old pop star tweeted.

“Pulled HK bad kids out of monster pit. Met them back stage, they broke out Judas choreography & then side-eyed me & said ‘were 15.’ AMAZING,” Gaga wrote in another tweet. “Goodnight little monsters, I love you!”

'Avengers' Director Joss Whedon on Trying to Be More Like Buffy

Joss Whedon has the kind of credibility that only comes from repeated failure. To his intensely devoted fans, Whedon is nothing less than a genius, the hyperliterate auteur who created the cult hit “Buffy the Vampire Slayer” and would have minted a half-dozen other self-aware genre franchises by now if it weren’t for the eternal obtuseness of network and studio executives.

Which is why they’re all the more frenzied about this week’s opening of “The Avengers.” After years of treating Whedon like a cog, one of those corporate behemoths — Disney’s Marvel Entertainment — has finally cottoned to the obvious: that there’s no one in Hollywood better cut out to make a superhero flick that hardcore nerds will embrace and civilians won’t be embarrassed to see.

I spoke to Whedon in early April, in the midst of a flurry of activity that was intense even by his standards. Within a span of a couple days, he had finished post-production on “The Avengers”; started post-production on a self-financed adaption of “Much Ado About Nothing”; finished shooting on another self-financed film, “In Your Eyes,” which he wrote; and debuted a documentary about Comicon which he produced and Morgan Spurlock directed. A week after our interview, “Cabin in the Woods,” a horror film he co-wrote and produced, opened.

Whedon hates spoilers, so here’s a spoiler alert: This interview is long. Unlike the suits at Fox, I don’t think I know better than Whedon what form his words ought to take, so I’m presenting them more or less verbatim. Read on if you’re interested in learning:

-the secret of multitasking

-Whedon’s advice for would-be filmmakers who aren’t born into screenwriting dynasties like he was

-why he doesn’t use Twitter

-how he feels about the possibility of another director resurrecting “Buffy”

-why you shouldn’t invite Batman to Thanksgiving dinner

-what his favorite superhero movies are

-why “Firefly” and “Dollhouse” were completely different kinds of failures

-why he started a “microbudget” studio of his own

-how he realized that his most famous character is really his own alter ego

-what he plans to do next. (Hint: You haven’t seen the last of Dr. Horrible.)

Michael Bay to Produce Treasure Island Prequel BLACK SAILS for Starz

With the Spartacus series continuing to anchor its original programming, Starz has ordered another blood-and-boobs historical epic to series in the form of the Michael Bay-produced Black Sails. Set to film in South Africa, the tentatively titled show is a prequel to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic pirate tale Treasure Island. It will take place 20 years before the events of the novel, following Captain Flint (the deceased pirate who literally put the treasure in Treasure Island) and a young Long John Silver as they buckle swash in defense of “notorious criminal haven” New Providence Island.

In case you haven’t read it, the oft-adapted 1883 book sees young narrator Jim Hawkins and cohorts squaring off against a devious, peg-legged Long John Silver for Flint’s buried treasure.

Bay and his horror-remake-happy Platinum Dunes label will exec produce the eight-episode first season of the prequel series alongside creators Jon Steinberg (Jericho) and Robert Levine (Touch). It will represent the Transformers director’s first real foray into television. Expect Black Sails to start plundering for ratings, ransoming the buxom daughters of prominent TV critics and…other pirate stuff…sometime in 2014.

Press release:

Beverly Hills, Calif., May 3, 2012 – Starz Chief Executive Officer Chris Albrecht announced the straight-to-series greenlight of “Black Sails” (working title) from executive producer Michael Bay. The new STARZ Original series is expected to air in 2014. The eight-episode first season of the pirate adventure centers on the tales of Captain Flint and his men, and takes place twenty years prior to Robert Louis Stevenson’s classic “Treasure Island.”

Flint, the most brilliant and most feared pirate captain of his day, takes on a fast-talking young addition to his crew who goes by the name John Silver. Threatened with extinction on all sides, they fight for the survival of New Providence Island, the most notorious criminal haven of its day – a debauched paradise teeming with pirates, prostitutes, thieves and fortune seekers, a place defined by both its enlightened ideals and its stunning brutality.

“Starz is excited to be working with a visionary like Michael,’” said Albrecht. “Along with the high-octane action that is a hallmark of a Michael Bay production, it has the elements that Starz originals are striving to bring to the premium landscape: epic, larger than life, cinematic storytelling. The series is also a property we believe will appeal to the global content marketplace with broadcasters around the world.”

“I’m excited to branch out into television,” says Michael Bay, the record-breaking director/producer of such big screen hits as Transformers and Bad Boys, “especially doing a long-form series for STARZ, a network known for supporting cutting edge programming.”

Following the model of the “Spartacus” franchise and “Magic City,” Starz will retain all domestic and international rights to the dramatic series, including television, home video, and digital.

“Black Sails” will be executive produced by Michael Bay (Transformers, Armageddon, Pearl Harbor) and his Platinum Dunes partners Brad Fuller and Andrew Form (producers on The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (2003) and Nightmare on Elm Street (2009). The series is created by showrunner and executive producer Jon Steinberg (creator “Jericho,” “Human Target”) and co-executive producer Robert Levine (“Touch”).

The production is set to shoot at Cape Town Studios in Cape Town, South Africa later this year.

frankly, i'll be disappointed if there aren't robot pirates exploding all over the place in the first episode.

Britney thinks Demi is 'inspiring'.

Britney Spears is hoping that teen queen Demi Lovato will become a fellow judge on Simon Cowell's X Factor, because Spears thinks Lovato is inspirational and believes they would have great chemistry on the show, is exclusively reporting.

As previously reported, Team Spears recently signed the contract to become a judge on X Factor. The pop music icon will be paid $15 million dollars a year, and her fiancé, Jason Trawick will be on set with her for filming.

Cowell still needs to fill the remaining two judges' positions since he fired Nicole Scherzinger and Paula Abdul after the music mogul was disappointed with the ratings from the first season.

"Britney is the anchor of the new judging panel and that was Simon's most important hire," a source close to the situation tells exclusively. "Britney is extremely hopeful that Demi Lovato will become one of the judges because she truly admires her. Britney loves how open and honest Demi has been with her fans after she went to rehab last year. She thinks they have a lot in common and that they would have great chemistry on the show. Britney is being kept apprised of the status of ongoing contract talks with Lovato and it is looking like she will be joining the show! Britney is extremely excited for filming to begin, which will be in the next month.

"Britney and Demi have met a few times very casually at Hollywood industry parties but those were very brief. Demi went to one of Britney's concerts in Anaheim in 2011 and met with her backstage. Once Demi officially signs her contract Simon will have the new judging panel over to his house for a celebration dinner. The second season of X Factor is going to be amazing," the source says.

RadarOnline tho...

Brit ... gurl ... xena_mademegay was inspiring. Imagine closing your mind off to all logic and reason in a dedicated mission to spend your life trolling. That doesn't mean you should hire her as the fourth judge either.

Community Co-Showrunners Step Down After 3 Seasons + Photos from the May 17th Finale

The current season of Community will also be the last for co-showrunners Neil Goldman and Garrett Donovan. The duo, who have been with NBC Universal for six years, have landed a two-year deal with 20th Century Fox, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Goldman and Donovan have served as writer-producers on the Community for the show's first three seasons. Although a cult and critical favorite, the show has yet to be renewed for a fourth season.

"We've had our eye on them for a long time," says Dana Walden, chairman of 20th Century Fox TV, describing the two as "incredibly funny" and "incredibly beloved."

Goldman and Donovan began working as a team on Fox's Family Guy, and later moved to NBC's Scrubs, where they served as executive producers until the show's eighth season.

"He said he liked our music and stuff. He'd spoke to Scooter since then and said he'd love to do a song with us so who knows. If it's the right song then we'll do it."

Adam "MCA" Yauch has passed away at the age of 47.

"Beastie Boys" rapper MCA -- real name Adam Yauch -- has died.

In 2009, MCA announced he was being treated for a cancerous parotid gland and a lymph node. He has since undergone surgery and radiation therapy.

So far, it's not clear if the death is related to the rapper's battle with cancer.

Russell Simmons' website first reported the death. We have spoken to people independently connected to the rapper who also say he is dead.

Yauch co-founded Beastie Boys in 1979 with Mike D, Mix Master Mike, and Ad Roc. The group has won multiple Grammys.

Yauch became a vegan at the recommendation of his Tibetan doctors.

Yauch is survived by his wife and daughter. He was 47.


UPDATE: Adam Yauch – aka MCA from the groundbreaking hip-hop group the Beastie Boys – has died.

He was 47.

A rep for the musician confirmed the news to Access Hollywood on Friday.

“It is with great sadness that we confirm that musician, rapper, activist and director Adam “MCA” Yauch, founding member of Beastie Boys and also of the Milarepa Foundation that produced the Tibetan Freedom Concert benefits, and film production and distribution company Oscilloscope Laboratories, passed away in his native New York City this morning after a near-three-year battle with cancer,” a statement released by the rep said.


Absolutely devastating news. Rest in peace.

Game of Thrones' Maisie Williams: There's More Killing and Madness in Arya's Future

Arya has acquired a taste for killing.

In the latest episode of Game of Thrones (Sundays, 9/8c, HBO), the youngest Stark daughter realizes that just by uttering a name, she can condemn a person to death at the hands of Jaqen H'ghar, a mysterious man who claims he owes her three deaths to repay her for saving his and two others' lives. And although this proxy murder is shocking, it's not the first time Arya has taken a life. Last season, the pint-sized girl impaled a stable boy with her sword in self-defense. The act serves as a rite of passage and a gateway for kills to come.

"I find it really hard to relate to Arya because I can't even imagine killing someone, but I think that first kill is completely lost on her now," Maisie Williams, who plays Arya, tells "Although that was a huge deal at the time, that's just a tiny little piece of this whole madness that's kind of going on in her life at the moment, and I think there's more to come. She definitely feels that's kind of the first of something, and when she realizes she's capable of doing that, I think it almost scares her a bit, but gives her more confidence because she can stand up for herself."

Samuel L. Jackson angrily responds to critic who disliked 'The Avengers'

Geek culture has become so completely mainstream that even the term “geek culture” sounds like a relic from an earlier era — a time before the biggest movies of the year were all based on the things you loved when you were in fifth grade. That’s especially true today. A decade ago, the notion of a movie like The Avengers would have seemed ridiculous, if not dangerously unstable. The last time someone combined three different movie franchises into one mega-movie, the film was called Ghidorah, the Three-Headed Monsterand Godzilla just made Rodan look irrelevant. (Rodan = The Hawkeye of mid-century Japanese monster movies.) The Avengers has earned plenty of glowing reviews. It is also going to earn a ludicrous amount of money. Everyone involved with The Avengers is going to make many, many more movies about the Avengers. All should be well.

But every silver lining has a cloud. Yesterday, Samuel L. Jackson — Marvel Studios mascot and highest-grossing actor in movie history — took to Twitter to complain about New York Times movie critic A.O. Scott’s review of Avengers. “#Avengers fans,NY Times critic AO Scott needs a new job! Let’s help him find one! One he can ACTUALLY do!” tweeted Jackson.

NY Post Writer Says Brooklyn Nets Should Be Called 'New York N-----s' Because Of Jay Z Involvement

A New York sportswriter is in hot water after writing that the Brooklyn Nets should change their name to the "New York N------s" because they are co-owned by Jay-Z.

Phil Mushnick, who writes for the New York Post, has apparently been a long-time critic of the rapper's role in the franchise. In a Friday column, he trashed Jay-Z's choices for the team's new uniforms:

As long as the Nets are allowing Jay-Z to call their marketing shots -- what a shock that he chose black and white as the new team colors to stress, as the Nets explained, their new "urban" home -- why not have him apply the full Jay-Z treatment?

Why the Brooklyn Nets when they can be the New York N------s? The cheerleaders could be the Brooklyn B----hes or Hoes. Team logo? A 9 mm with hollow-tip shell casings strewn beneath. Wanna be Jay-Z hip? Then go all the way!

Unsurprisingly, Twitter has erupted over the comments.

Duran Duran Toast to the Glamour of "Rio," 30 Years Later


Thirty years ago, Duran Duran set the pop charts alight with their sempiternal summer hit, "Rio." Aside from bringing an accessible take on the New Romantic movement to the bedroom stereos of teenage girls, the song's music video is also the British act's most iconic aesthetic moment, bringing together the soon-to-be ubiquitous MTV paragon of rock stars, supermodels and yachts for the first time. (It also features an excellent sax solo on a makeshift raft.) Filmed by Russell Mulcahy (who also directed their "Hungry Like The Wolf" clip) in 1982, on the famous Eilean ketch in Antigua, "Rio" is part of the band's Grammy-winning "travelogue" series that established them as music video pioneers during MTV's salad days. It also sees the Duran boys decked out in swanky Antony Price suits, a testament to the power of pastel-charged androgyny in early Eighties fashion. Overall, a collision of style and sound worth commemorating in 2012.

Built in 1936, the Eilean ketch sadly fell into disuse in later years but has recently been bought and resurrected by Italian luxury watch brand, Panerai. After three years of restoration, Eilean is happily back at home in Antigua, where she competed in the country's Classic Yacht Regatta on April 24th. In celebration, Panerai nabbed Duran Duran to take part in the festivities, engineering a glamorous visual flashback moment for Duran Duran fans, Regatta enthusiasts, and those who appreciate the finer things in life.

30 Rock's Queen of Jordan Returns

Last night, 30 Rock reprised its Queen of Jordan saga. What did you guys think of the episode? I was obsessed with the first Queen of Jordan episode in season 5, but I felt this one was weaker. It still had some really hilarious moments, though. Many of them courtesy of Tracy and Angie's daughter, Virginia. The episode was "written" by Luke del Tredici and Tracey Wigfield.

I might be asking for too much, but that girl who played Virginia deserved an Emmy nom.

NY mag's Vulture blog recapped the episode.


Scorsese is still enamored of Leo, also adds Jonah Hill to his cast

There are two sides to Jonah Hill. The guy who will make jokes about getting to second base with an old man in "The Watch" trailer, and the actor who has been emerging as a major dramatic talent across films like "Cyrus" and of course, his Oscar nominated turned "Moneyball." Now, he's graduating to the big time.

Deadline reports that Hill has joined Martin Scorsese's next film "The Wolf Of Wall Street" with Leonardo DiCaprio. Wow, really impressive stuff. Based on the memoir by Jordan Belfort and his experiences on the job in the '80s and '90s, and adapted by Terence Winter ("Boardwalk Empire"), "The Wolf of Wall Street" tells the rise and fall of a drug/sex/alcohol addicted New York stockbroker. DiCaprio is in the lead and Hill will play his best friend, who works in the furniture business, and is convinced by Belfort to join in the wild world of stocks.

This is a major move for Hill and one that could establish him as the rare actor who can deliver both big comedy hits ("21 Jump Street") and be a strong presence in dramas as well. It's frankly really heartening to see Hill spread his wings and transition into bolder, more ambitious fare so we couldn't be more thrilled to see him working with Scorsese and DiCaprio. Who would've thought Seth from "Superbad" would ever get this far? Nicely done, Jonah. Production on "The Wolf Of Wall Street" gets underway in August.


Dennis Quaid's wife calls off divorce!

Dennis Quaid's wife has apparently had a change of heart ... 'cause she's officially withdrawn her divorce papers ... TMZ has learned.

We broke the story ... Kimberly Buffington-Quaid filed for divorce back in March citing irreconcilable differences.

It seemed like it was getting contentious because Kim was asking for spousal support but in Dennis' papers ... his lawyer asked the judge to give her squat.

Here's how contentious it seemed -- the judge ordered Dennis and Kimberly to cooperate in deciding who got to use the Range Rover while the divorce was pending.

But in the new documents Kim made it clear she has no desire to pursue the divorce ... and the judge has agreed to dismiss. So marriage back on ... at least for now.

Yay! I hope they can work this out.

12 Naughty Bits From ‘50 Shades Darker’

If the mixed crowd at E.L. James’s Florida book signing was any indication, the author’s “mommy porn” is catching on among daddies and even granddaddies. To wit: my 72-year-old uncle has snatched his wife’s copies of the books. I’ll admit after finishing the first installment I was ready for a break from Anastasia’s “inner goddess” and Christian’s tortured, tortured soul. But apparently I was in the minority, as 50 Shades Darker is currently No. 2 on USA Today’s bestseller list, just behind 50 Shades of Grey.

The Cinderella storyline and spanking continues in 50 Shades Darker, but Christian Grey the sadist has softened considerably in the five days since Anastasia ran away from his “Red Room of Pain” at the end of the first book. It’s not long before she’s back in his clutches and, Holy cow!—her “inner goddess” is acting out in all sorts of psychologically and physically implausible ways. Desire runs through her veins, pools in her groin, and races through her bloodstream during foreplay, but it’s clear that what she’s really getting off on is their increasingly lovey-dovey relationship. Christian doesn’t even attempt to spank her—let alone pull out the nipple clamps and ball gags—until almost halfway through the book.

Spoiler alert: the Twilight-y love story escalates in 50 Shades Darker, but the author hasn’t lost her touch when it comes to writing about sex in gory detail. Below, the most “Jamesian” passages from the second book in her Grey series.

Everyone Can't Stop Kissing Michelle Pfeiffer's Birthday Ass

Her birthday was also not lost on the attendees of the film's official Press Conference.

Woman who gave up shaving debates prickly subject on British talkshow

Can it EVER be socially acceptable to have hairy armpits?

Like it or not, there are few sights more arresting than a woman with a hairy armpit. The unfettered growth of female underarm and leg hair is considered one of the ultimate social taboos, dismissed as the kind of eccentric behaviour that should only adopted by hippies.

But while as a society we are used to removing all our body hair, one woman has decided to challenge the notion that women must be hair-free to be happy.

Graduate student Emer O'Toole from Dublin decided to stop shaving for good 18 months ago when she came to the conclusion that too much pressure is put upon women to conform to what she calls 'artificial gender norms'.

Appearing on This Morning to debate the prickly subject, Ms O'Toole admitted that she started shaving at the age of 14, simply because it was expected of her. But now she hopes to challenge - and change - such expectations.

Degrassi: In the Cold, Cold Night (Season Finale Part 1)

Updated HQ

The season finale is not airing as a one hour episode anymore. Part 1 is on May 11th and part 2 is May 18th. Praying there isn't a repeat of last year's season finale where 10 on Top, Hollywood Life, and Teennick gave the whole episode away with "sneak peeks".

Season Finale: In the Cold, Cold Night Episode Descriptions!
[Spoiler (click to open)]
From MuchMusic's Press Release
Fiona and Imogen scheme to end Marisol’s Student Council reign. The plan? Throw an unforgettable end-of-semester holiday carnival. But with a huge family crisis looming, Fiona worries she may have over-promised. Clare makes peace with Alli but still needs the help of the one person who can actually write; Eli. Can these two put their differences aside and work together? Their relationship is put to the test and their true feelings come out. Maya is frustrated with her home life and matters are even worse at school as she’s stuck in an uninspired grade 9 band class. Music means everything to her and Maya fears that, left unchallenged, her passion for music may be slipping away.

1144 - In the Cold of the Night, Part 1
When anti-gay slurs appear on several lockers, Simpson can't find the culprit, so the students take matters into their own hands. A conflict between Alli and Eli puts Clare in a difficult position. Fiona embarks on her first-ever job search.

Hmm...who could this be? Not Owen anymore since his little brother Tristan is gay. This Alli and Eli conflict could actually be really interesting. Eli's ex-girlfriend Julia got killed in a car accident, remember? And he carries guilt over it because they had a fight before she took off that night she died. Dave's hookup got hit by a car and may or may not end up paraplegic for the rest of her life. Dave feels guilty because he used her and made her feel like shit. Dave could go to Eli to talk about it. They're both friends with Adam so they can meet that way. Alli has made it very clear over and over again that she doesn't like Eli, so she wouldn't like their "bond" and she might even go as far as to think that Eli's "crazy" would rub off on Dave. No idea how this involves Clare though. The character getting "the shock of their life" must be Fiona losing her money (which they already did with Holly J).

both munro and jahmil are among the best if not the best actors on the show, i would love to see them work together tbh.

1145 - In the Cold of the Night, Part 2
Simpson institutes a peer mediation program to help resolve recent conflicts, but it gets off to a rough start. Clare is so overwhelmed by relationship, school, and family stress that she develops insomnia. Clare without sleep? This could get messy.

The A plot looks very interesting because all the characters could be incorporated. Adam, Fiona, Tristan, (Imogen?) and all their friends and family. How is Clare still having relationship troubles when she's single? And I thought her family issues were resolved...sort of. Idgi but whatever more Clare on my TV screen is always welcome. <3

this is the same website that released all the episode descriptions up to smash into you and they were all right. hollaback girl's descriptions are both short in comparison to the rest and these seem kind of odd in a way. especially the A plot, it seems to come out of nowhere and the focus isn't really on what they've been pushing with the promos since the show picked up again. hmm...but i am excited nonetheless.
