Peter Pan: Hear Me Out

Hands Off Sally: 'Mad Men' takes little girl's sexual story too far

Photobucket

In Hollywood, absolute power doesn’t just corrupt absolutely, it also causes absolute crotch rot.

Take “Mad Men” genius-creator/TV power-lister Matthew Weiner. What in hell is he doing with little Sally Draper?

Whatever it is, I think it requires a call to Child Protective Services to make it stop.

Maybe the parents of the 12-year-old actress who plays Sally, Kiernan Shipka, are too caught up in the glamour of the show to stop the harm it has caused their child — harm that is being played out before the country.

Sorry, but what Weiner has done over the last two seasons to the character of this child smacks not just of Hollywood perversity, but of child exploitation disguised as art.

Take little Sally’s scene this past Sunday night.

In it, she snuck out of her dad’s apartment to meet creepy Glen (played by Weiner’s son, Marten Weiner) at the Museum of Natural History.

When she gets stomach pains she runs to the bathroom, where she pulls up her dress, pulls down her underpants, squats on the toilet and there, in close-up yet, they show her little-girl, white cotton underpants soiled with her first menstrual blood.

Excuse me? That is a violation of a child’s private moment that no man, let alone an entire nation, should see.

But, like other equally inappropriate and gratuitous scenes involving Sally, it did not even move the episode (otherwise the best of the season) forward.

Was it there to shock? Maybe.

Did it? Yes.

But for what purpose?

I can’t help but wonder whether Weiner ever considers if scenes like that excite child sexual predators. Does he care? Surely this must panic her parents — no?

You know that right now, some lowlife creep out there is replaying the scene.


This Sally business isn’t new for Weiner. In fact, by my count, it’s the third inexcusably graphic scene involving her.

Last year, when she was 11, Weiner had the child open her legs, place her fingers under her nightgown and “play with herself,” as her mother, Betty Draper, put it after catching her.

Excuse me? Again, this was a scene that not only did not move the plot forward, in fact, it stopped it cold.

Then, earlier this season, Sally was again pictured going to the bathroom — this time at a fancy catered affair with her father and his new wife Megan — when she walked into a room next to the ballroom and saw Megan’s mother performing oral sex on Roger. Right.

You want to put adults in stupid situations like that fine but leave children out of it.

Remember last year when Larry David, too, went over the line in an episode in which he read instructions to a 13-year-old Girl Scout about how to insert a tampon.

What kind of weirdoes think like this?

I can’t imagine that Shipka’s parents aren’t concerned with doing everything they can to protect their little girl from creepy fans. But when she performs in scenes like these, they expose her to a world full of them.

Leighton Meester wins lawsuit against her mom



Leighton Meester just won her legal war against her mom -- after the "Gossip Girl" star sued her last year ... claiming the woman diverted money Leighton had sent to her little brother  ...  and she spent it on things like plastic surgery, Botox, and hair extensions.

TMZ broke the story -- Leighton filed the lawsuit claiming her little brother has serious medical problems ... so she sent home $7,500 a month to help cover his expenses.

Leighton's mom, Constance Meester, tried convincing the judge Leighton had promised to take care of her and that's why she spent the cash.  But the judge pooh-poohed mom's claims, ruling there was no such agreement.

Leighton actually didn't sue to recover any money from her mom -- she just wanted the judge to make her mother go away.

Mission accomplished.


Jennifer Garner's film short 'Serena'.


Jennifer Garner’s new short film ‘Serena’ is now playing on WIGS on YouTube. The movie, which was written and directed by WIGs co-founder Rodrigo Garcia, is the first short to be featured on the network, which airs content starring all female leads.

‘Serena,’ which runs for 11 minutes and 51 seconds, follows the title character, played by Garner, who makes a series of shocking confessions to her priest. The film also stars Alfred Molina, who stars as the priest.

Of Garner and Molina’s pairing, Garcia said they were perfect. “They elevated the script and found feeling and laughter together where I had not seen it. I wish everything was this easy and fun.”

‘Serena’ is the first of 10 short films scheduled to play on WIGs, and comes after the channel’s first series, ‘Jan.’ The first six episodes of the show, which stars Caitlin Gerard, Virginia Madsen and Stephen Moyer, are now available on WIGs.

Watch ‘Serena’ below.

The Dream defends Gwyneth, claims he typed THE tweet


Gwyneth Paltrow tweeted “Ni**as in paris for real @mrteriusnash (the dream) tyty, beehigh” in regards to Beyonce, The-Dream and Jay-Z’s homeboy Ty Ty on stage in Paris during the Watch The Throne show. Many folks, surprisingly enough didn’t take too much offense to Paltrow’s tweet, because…well, it’s the title of the song. Which was her defense when she was called out for her tweet.

Now, The-Dream is actually taking responsibility for the tweet and he tweeted, “Fyi Sorry for the Confu I typed Ni**as in paris for real from Gwens Phone my bad I was Fkd up please excuse it! We were lit!” That’s weird because I could have sworn The-Dream was on stage with Paltrow when the controversial tweet was sent. It wasn’t enough for some fans, who grilled The-Dream about the usage of the word, whether it was from him or Gwyneth. The-Dream went on to defend Gwyneth and then went off on a N-word tangent

Singer Lauryn Hill faces federal tax charges in NJ

lauryn-hill-2_jpg-thumb-473xauto-6553
Eight-time Grammy winner Lauryn Hill has been charged in New Jersey with willfully failing to file federal income tax returns with the IRS.

Federal prosecutors say Hill earned more than $1.6 million during the three years that she failed to file returns. Prosecutors say her primary source of income is royalties from the recording and film industries.

The 37-year-old South Orange resident is scheduled to appear before a federal magistrate on June 29.

Hill got her start with The Fugees and began her solo career in 1998 with the critically acclaimed album "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill." The album was praised by critics for its incisive lyrics and synthesis of rap and soul. It sold 8 million copies.

Messages left for her California-based attorney and publicist weren't immediately returned.

Selena Gomez: The New It Girl [ELLE Magazine photoshoot]


At only 19, Gomez is mogul on the rise: a TV and music star, a fashion entrepreneur, and, as Justin Bieber’s better half, the envy of Beliebers everywhere. Now, with a string of gritty indies on the horizon, she’s poised to become Hollywood’s newest It Girl.

On Bieber renting out LA's Staples Center for a private screening of Titanic:
"If I'll share anything with you, it's that he really is a hopeless romantic. I had just mentioned it in the car - all I said is that I really want to see Titanic again, and then."

On growing up poor:
"I can remember about seven times when our car got stuck on the highway because we'd run out of gas money." Still her mother, "saved up to take me to concerts. She took me to museums, aquariums, to teach me about the world, about what's real."

On Disney:
"Disney is a machine, so people automatically assume that you can't work for the channel unless you act and sing and dance and sign up for all that. That's absolutely not true. I always did everything the way I wanted to do it."

On her movie offers:
"I get offered the teenybopper movies, and I've done that. I haven't done a mega-hundred-billion-dollar Transformers movie, but that's not what I want to do either."

On seeing Jennifer Lopez in Selena at age five:
"I made a bustier out of a bathing suit that I dyed black. I put glue and glitter all over it and I wouldn't take it off."

Beach House Unveil Eerie 'Lazuli' Video, 'Frightened Eyes' Tour Dates


by Marc Hogan


Radiant Baltimore dream-poppers Beach House have simultaneously announced a tour called "Frightened Eyes" and a new video, but the two don't necessarily appear to be related.


In fact, the video for "Lazuli," one of many highlights on Beach House's slowly unfurling latest album, Bloom, in a weird way gives us another revealing way of approaching a song that can be as intense and yet ultimately impenetrable as the striking blue gem stone of its title. Here "Lazuli" is set against shadowy visuals of three strangers whose lives converge, via a set of supernatural circumstances, in a psychedelic, outer-space realm where Beach House is, of course, performing. Though not "frightening," the clip is definitely eerie, in keeping with director Allen Cordell's similarly bizarre video for "Walk in the Park," off of previous album Teen Dream. "Like no other, you can't be replaced," singer Victoria Legrand repeats, in her characteristically smoky tones. The visuals ambitiously underscore that "uniqueness" has, paradoxically enough, more than one meaning.


OK, OK: This video has spontaneously exploding eggs!




At the same time, the group, whose summer tour ranks as one of SPIN's 25 Best, has now also revealed a set of fall dates. The "Frightened Eyes" tour kicks off September 13 in Richmond, Virginia, and will criss-cross North America through October 17. Then the band will jaunt across the pond for a series of European dates scheduled through November 19. Check out the full list below:

How Liam Hemsworth won the hand of Miley Cyrus/Miam Engagement Megapost!!

This site is usually pretty accurate when it comes to news about Miley and her family:

As congratulations poured in Wednesday for Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth — from both personal friends and their legions of fans — I learned the newly engaged couple worked hard to convince their parents that they were ready to make this big leap.

The former “Hannah Montana” star particularly had to win over her dad,
Billy Ray Cyrus — convincing him his 19-year-old daughter was grown-up enough to walk down the aisle.

“Billy Ray has always been super-protective of Miley,” said one of the Cyrus family’s oldest friends. “While he’s become very fond of Liam — as has the entire family — Billy Ray was just worried about Miley still being a teenager. … On top of that, there’s the whole entertainment world thing, where so many young stars get married young, and then it falls apart fairly quickly"

“He obviously didn’t want that to happen to his Miley.”

Hemsworth — himself only 22 but considered very mature for his age — apparently has quietly worked on Miley’s dad for a number of months, making him realize this is something the couple takes very seriously.

Having met on the set of their film “The Last Song” in 2009, the twosome have dated relatively steadily since then — having taken only one break “just to make sure this was the real deal,” added the source.

Cyrus herself happily tweeted Wednesday, “I feel all my dreams are coming true,” and top Hollywood jeweler Neil Lane told People that Hemsworth helped design the 3.5-carat diamond engagement ring — calling it a “contemporary design based on vintage aesthetics.”

That fits with my source’s take on the “Hunger Games” star: “Underneath it all, Liam is a very solid guy with good, old-fashioned values. At the end of the day, I think that’s won over Billy Ray.”

Video Premiere: William Beckett, 'Compromising Me'


William Beckett compromises nothing in his new 'Compromising Me' video.


As much as we miss The Academy Is, former frontman William Beckett's solo work is venturing into some intriguing territory, kinda like how Patrick Stump went off on a really unexpected -- and really refreshing -- tangent after Fall Out Boy. Just like in romantic relationships, breakups, though totally the worst, often leave you in a better, more mature place, and on his own, William Beckett's no exception. His four-song EP, Walk The Talk, included the irresistible sing-along anthem "Oh, Love!" And today, our obsession with William Beckett's mature new sound (and mature new look -- heLLOOOOO!) continues as he reveals his hip and kitschy video for "Compromising Me."


Working a high-energy, pop/rock vibe, William's new jam solidifies his status a bonafide solo artist. (In fact, we'd venture to say he's transitioned with the ease of Justin Timberlake.) "Compromising Me" has a Rivers Cuomo-meets-Beck flavor with a dash of Fall Out Boy somewhere in the vocal mix. In the clip, William looks chill as ever as he sings about life and what we have to do to maintain our integrity: "I don’t care what you’re saying about me/ No, I don’t care/ I don’t care what you think about me.../ I can’t let you be this constant/ Compromising me." Yeah dude, don't let anything change your beliefs! (Or your hair -- we're really loving it these days.)

I miss TAI, but tbh I love Beckett too much to not like his solo stuff at least a little bit. His new style isn't really my cup of tea, but I found this video to be cute! I also like the fact that he's been successfully touring and releasing music independently since TAI disbanded.

Justin Bieber gets wacky on the set of "El Hormiguero"



Justin Bieber was caught on set of the Spanish tv show El Hormiguero on June 4th. The Canadian singer had some fun at his own expense on the show that is known for it’s silliness.

The wacky series frequently puts celebrities through weird tasks and comical challenges during their visits, and Justin's stop was no different. He rode a contraption made of leaf-blowers and a fire extinguisher, carried on a conversation with a puppet, and was asked to show off a few dance moves during the broadcast.

Three actors leaving Body of Proof!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

ABC's Body of Proof will return for a shortened third season without two of its regular stars.

Series regulars John Carroll Lynch and Nicholas Bishop, who have been with the series since it launched in 2011, have completed their time with the Dana Delany medical drama, The Hollywood Reporter has confirmed, with the options on both actors not picked up for Season 3.

The series, which launched as a midseason show in its first year and went on to earn a 20-episode second run, last featured Bishop's investigator Peter Dunlop bleeding after being stabbed by an embalmer's hook following a fight. Lynch's Detective Bud Morris, meanwhile, was last seen celebrating at a baby shower with his wife.

The cast departures come as the network appears to be shedding stars from its returning bubble shows, with Private Practice original cast member Tim Daly's contract not picked up for the medical drama's upcoming sixth season.

Is New Girl "the first post-post 9/11 show"?


What is it that makes New Girl feel very of-the-moment? Brett Baer, one of the show's executive producers, says he has a theory. "We were all surprised by how connected people felt [to the pilot]," Baer tells Written By, the WGA magazine. " I was thinking long and hard about it, and I said to Dave [Finkel, one of the other executive producers], 'What we've done here is created maybe the first post-post-9/11 show,'" he says.

"The comedy in the past 10 years prior to our show had an edge to it," Baer explains. "It was satirical. There was a cynicism about the comedy. What our show came along at the right time for — this weird alchemy that happened — is that we were willing for the first time to go, It's okay to feel again." Baer concedes that he "might be completely boneheaded and wrong," but he also insists that New Girl is "the first show that actually tries to emotionally connect on that level." Zooey Deschanel healed America!

'Nancy Pansy Hairy Mary' Teaser Trailer



via GeeksOUT

What’s in a name, right? Nancy Pansy Hairy Mary is very fun to say. It’s also a daring “queer German/Australian feature film in the making” from Fully Flared Films. Written by Bartholomew Sammut and Kelly West and directed by Sammut’s husband, Christoph Scheermann—who got his start in showbiz at age 12 in his native Germany’s version of Married With Children, which is fabulous—the film is “a love story about hate.” In the word of the filmmakers:

NANCY PANSY HAIRY MARY is the first feature film to be made by Fully Flared Films! After spending the last three years developing the script, we now believe this story is ready to get produced! The issue of Homophobia has always been an issue we have longed to address in a film and with NANCY PANSY HAIRY MARY, not only do we address it but we fuck it up royally!

NANCY PANSY HAIRY MARY is a love story about hate. The hate that brings two serial killers together from opposite sides of the world, the hate that drives them to kill as many homophobes as possible and the hate that brings them together to find something they were not aware of. Love. After the events of the past year, Sebastian and Felix finally meet and unleash a whole new type of hell for any homophobe standing in their way. When their lives begin to unravel, and innocent people are killed, they are forced to decide if their love for each other is stronger then their hate for others.

The film is still in development and is currently raising funding through Pozible, but they already have a distribution deal.

Tom Felton says he’s a ‘Hunger Games’ fan, hints he’s looking into playing Finnick

Fandoms collide! Harry Potter actor Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy) says in a new interview that he and his girlfriend are big fans of The Hunger Games books and film.


What’s more: He says he’s interested in playing Finnick in Catching Fire:


The 24-year-old “Harry Potter” star revealed that he’s a big “Hunger Games” fan. “I was there at the Hunger Games premiere,” Tom told me exclusively. “I was very impressed. My girlfriend is an avid reader of the books and told me that I had to go and see this film. It’s awesome. It speaks for itself and the I can’t wait for the next one.”

So, would he want a part in “Catching Fire”? “For sure,” Tom dished. “I’ve been reading into this Finnick character. He’s a pretty awesome character. You never know! Fingers crossed. One day, you never know.”


If you watch the video (below), you’ll see that it was actually Felton who brought up Finnick specifically – not the interviewer. Maybe we’re overthinking his comments, but it almost sounds like he’s asked his agent if it’s possible for him to audition. Who would say “fingers crossed” unless they were hoping to get the role?

Donald Trump and his hair is suing Miss.P



Never say Donald Trump isn't a man of his word -- we're told the Miss USA owner is going forward with legal action against ex-Miss Pennsylvania Sheena Monnin ... for saying the pageant is fixed.

TMZ broke the story ... Donald issued Monnin a 24-hour ultimatum yesterday -- apologize and retract her statements that the Miss USA pageant predetermines its winners ... or face a lawsuit.

Well, Sheena didn't retract squat -- and now our sources say Donald's lawyers are meeting to draft a defamation lawsuit.

It's unclear when the suit will be filed.
I think it's fixed.

Mel B introduced as Mel C at Manchester X Factor auditions

OH to have been a fly on the wall...

Mel B didn't get off to the best start at The X Factor auditions yesterday, after making less of an entrance than Geri Halliwell AND being announced to the crowds as Mel C.
TulisaGary Barlow and Louis Walsh were joined by the guest judge at the Manchester leg of the auditions, bit it seems one of the show's production crew got their Spice Girls in a muddle when it came to the announcements.
As she went to make her way to the stage, the crew member said: "Please welcome Mel C!"
Mel B then made her way on to the stage as the staff member quickly corrected himself, but we're pretty sure the damage was done at that point.
An onlooker told the Daily Star: “It was a bit awkward, everyone looked around for Mel C.
"The poor guy realised he’d made a mistake but Mel didn’t look pleased!”
According to reports, Mel B shrugged off the mishap and carried on with the show.
The former Spice Girl is currently guest judging on the show while they search for a fourth judge.

There should be more posts about Logan Marshall-Green

So here ya go.

Bullet magazine did a feature on Logan and took some nice photos of him looking sufficiently sexy. There was not one mention of his uncanny resemblance to that certain other actor.



Collapse )

An Excerpt-The moment he knew he wanted to be an actor. Read the full article HERE

His decision to become an actor was cemented when Marshall-Green was seated in the audience for a performance of the swashbuckling French play Cyrano de Bergerac in Stratford-upon-Avon, England, William Shakespeare’s birthplace. During the play’s final act, when Cyrano professes his love to Roxane, fake leaves began to flutter down from the grand theater’s rafters. The scene continued and, according to Marshall-Green, “one last leaf fell when it wasn’t supposed to. Cyrano was just about to confess everything, and we all watched him watch it fall. He put his hand out, this fingerless-gloved hand, and— I’ll never forget it—the leaf literally fell right into it.” He compares the descent of the wayward leaf to the communal secret shared by the actors and their audience. “Everyone immediately burst into tears and knew he was about to tell her he loved her. I realized in that moment that I was going to act on stage for the rest of my life.”

Things I learned from the article:
--Like most hot guys (sadly) he smokes. Why is this the case with hotties? Why can they not
keep their lungs pure and untainted?
--He likes Graphic Novels and Game of Thrones
--He’s a huge Shakespeare fan
--His mom Lowry Marshall is a professor of theater at Brown University
--He’s a baseball fanatic and huge Mets fan.
--He's really hot

Could Logan signal the return of hot actors or will we be stuck watching Michael Cera and Seth Rogen until the end of time?

Mmmmm, whatcha say ONTD?

"PERSON OF INTEREST" Season 1 DVD and Blu-ray Release Date Announced

Release Date : September 4, 2012

Jim Caviezel (The Thin Red Line), Michael Emerson (Lost) and Taraji P. Henson (Hustle & Flow) team up in this thought-provoking crime action drama from "The Dark Knight"'s Jonathan Nolan and J.J. Abrams' Bad Robot Productions (Fringe, Lost, Alias). Set in New York City, this procedural centers on an ex-CIA agent, presumed dead, who partners with a mysterious billionaire to prevent violent crimes.



Using data siphoned off the U.S. intelligence agencies' threat matrix -- information not related to terrorism, but rather violent crimes of a personal nature -- during each episode, the former CIA agent and his enigmatic partner identify a "person of interest" and set about solving the mystery of the impending crime. Tapping into the world's Big Brother-like surveillance network, the shadowy duo knows that something bad is going to happen; it's their mission to discover what that event will be ... and somehow prevent it.

Special Features:
Original Broadcast Pilot Commentary
Extended Pilot Episode (Unaired) with Producer Commentary
Featurette: Living in an Age of Surveillance
Gag Reel

Season 1 Overview (heavy spoilers):

Madonna's New Music Video Director Chosen, Daily Fail Goes After Madonna's Roots

Tom Munro will direct Madonna's music video for "Turn Up The Radio" in Rome on Sunday, June 10, two days before her first Italian concert at the Olympic Stadium in Rome. Rumor has it that Madonna will be filming the video at the Rome Forum, but nothing's been set in store. Munro directed 2008's "Give It 2 Me" music video.


Head-covered Madonna was seen visiting a mosque in Istanbul. She might have been covering up not just for the mosque, but also to shield her massive dark roots, something that has her fan base has been up in arms over. Madonna usually has a new hairdo, as well as perfectly touched up roots before hitting the stage every era. Since opening night, Madonna's washed out blond with accompanied dark roots have been prominently on display before audiences every night. What's up with that?


The Daily Fail has more than hair on their mind. They also hate Madonna's chunky black boots. They look pretty cool IMHO.

John Travolta Had Gay Relationship With His Pilot For Six Years

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
John sure loves his pilots

In a move that could add credence to the sexual harassment charges facing John Travolta, the "Pulp Fiction" star's long-time assistant has come forward with claims the actor is not only gay, but was also in a relationship with another man for six years.

RadarOnline cites a National Enquirer interview with Joan Edwards, credited by IMDb as having served as Travolta's assistant on films like "Urban Cowboy" and "Look Who's Talking" from 1978 to 1994, who claims that the actor and a male pilot named Doug Gotterba were lovers in the 1980s.

“I did everything for him, including taking care of his personal and professional schedules," Edwards is quoted by the Enquirer as saying. "Of course I knew he was gay. It never bothered me."

Oprah's career 'tanking because of Obama'



Oprah Winfrey’s virtual vanishing from America’s airwaves is the direct result of her political support for Barack Obama, according to the nation’s top-rated radio host.

“Oprah threw away her TV career for Obama,” Rush Limbaugh said this afternoon. “If you want to know why Oprah’s not on television anymore, it’s because she supported Obama. If you want to know why Oprah is flailing away on a cable network that nobody watches, it’s because of Obama.”

Oprah is best-known for her self-titled TV talk show, which became the highest-rated program of its kind in history and was nationally broadcast from 1986 to 2011.

Paris Jackson Will Discuss Her Life With Oprah



During an "Oprah's Next Chapter" interview set to air on Sunday, Paris Jackson opened up about life after the death of her father, Michael Jackson, and revealed to Oprah Winfrey what she thought about wearing "masks" as a child.

Stunning teen Paris Jackson sat down with Oprah Winfrey, for an "Oprah's Next Chapter" where she talked about the legacy of her father Michael Jackson and what life's been like since his passing saying, "It never gets easier."

The topic of "childhood" was a recurring theme throughout the interview, since the lack of a childhood was one of Michael Jackson's life-shaping events. Paris revealed that he made them wear masks so they could indeed have the childhood he missed.

"I was really confused. I didn't get why I was wearing a mask," Jackson reveals. "I understand it now. My dad wanted us to be covered [because] he wanted us to have a childhood." She explained, that covering up was the only way they could be like other kids. "Chuck E. Cheese was one of our most favorite places to go."

The "IT" remake has a director and writer, will be turned into two movies

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Warner Bros’ adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel It has a director and writer.

Cary Fukunaga, the hot-shot filmmaker behind last year’s adaptation of Jane Eyre, is boarding the project as director and will co-write the script with Chase Palmer, who previously adapted Frank Herbert’s Dune for Paramount.

Roy Lee and Dan Lin are producing It, as are Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg of KatzSmith Production.

A best-selling book when it was published in 1986, It, like The Stand, is one of King’s biggest and most dense tomes, and the plan is for Fukunaga and Palmer to adapt the work into two films.

Warners picked up the rights in 2009 and originally intended to adapt it into a single movie.

Jon Silk is co-producing.

Lady Gaga's Manager Troy Carter Leaves Azealia Banks' Team After Two Months



Azealia Banks is mixing business with pleasure.

Sources close to the situation tell us the 21-year-old Harlem-born rapper has split with Lady Gaga ’s powerful manager, Troy Carter, after less than two months in his stable, and is now repped by Dave Holmes , who’s doing double duty as Banks’ boyfriend.

The insiders say the rising hip-hop star has been in a relationship with Holmes, who’s in his 40s, for months.

Indeed, one of those sources says Holmes introduced Banks to Carter, who has worked with rappers Nellie and Eve in the past.

In April, Banks excitedly tweeted the news that Carter would manage her, noting that she now would “have a whole new set of resources to take advantage of.”

Their business relationship quickly soured, however.

According to one source, Carter and Banks weren’t a “good fit, and things weren’t working out.

That source and another insider say it was Carter who “walked away” from Banks.

Who could be Marvel's Black Panther?


For all their success so far, the Marvel movies have, aside from a few smallish parts, been a pretty lilywhite affair to date: only Samuel L. Jackson was a significant minority presence in "The Avengers."

“Himbo,” according to Dictionary.com, is a slang word, usually derogatory, that refers to an attractive but empty-headed man—a male “bimbo.” While we aren’t making any claims about these actors’ intelligence, they certainly had some empty-headed roles in box-office hits before disappearing into the Hollywood abyss. The Daily Beast takes a look at once-budding action stars now seen mostly in discount DVD bins and on cable TV.

Beth Ditto confirms Christina Aguilera is working with Xenomania!

Xenomania are the most successful songwriting and production team in British Pop music.

In an interview with PopJustice (which you should all read immediately, it’s great), Queen Beth Ditto of Gossip revealed that while recording at Xenomania headquarters, she encountered a few fellow musicians in the studio.

From PopJustice:

Were there any popstars hanging about?
Beth: Florrie was there, Annie was there. That’s when Nathan and I were there anyway. And there were some other people that I don’t remember. I think they were up and coming people. But they were like ‘oh in a week Christina Aguilera’s coming in’ and I was like ‘please let me stay here’.
BLIMEY.
Beth: I would have loved to have stayed there. I bet I could have made her laugh.


Christina has been reaching out to more UK talent than ever before. She has also worked with major US Pop producers/writers like Sandy Vee in NYC and the Legendary Max Martin.
