Jett's 2006 album Sinner features a cover of the same song, whose lyrics celebrate changing gender images: "Same hair, revolution / Unisex, evolution / Tomorrow who’s gonna fuss." Source

Aaron Paul's Meteorite Prank Made The Local News

Actor Aaron Paul convinced his former housemate a meteorite had crashed in their backyard - and was left stunned when footage of his prank appeared on the local news.

The Breaking Bad star dug a giant hole in the grounds of the Hollywood property and filled it with rocks and dry ice to give the illusion an outer space object had landed.

Paul's pal was taken in by the prank - but the actor hadn't anticipated his stunt going public.

He tells U.S. chat show host Conan O'Brien, "I have something to confess... my old roommate has the worst luck on the entire planet and he's convinced 2012 is the end of the world so I wanted him to believe that meteorites were slamming into our back yard. I did just that... I played a prank on him...

"I went and bought some actual meteorites and I dug a giant crater in our back yard, filled it up with dry ice, covered it with dirt, put the meteorites in the middle of it and dumped a bunch of water on it, then I set off a dry ice bomb in the back yard. He was in the bedroom sleeping... it exploded and he runs out of his bedroom in his boxers and was like, 'What was that?' 'cos literally the house kind of shook and I go, 'I don't know, the entire backyard lit up'. He ran outside in his boxers and sees this giant crater just boiling."

Paul then showed O'Brien the rocks he used for the prank, and added, "He (roommate) started panicking 'cos he was convinced, he believed these things were slamming into the earth. And it actually made it on Fox 11 news. His girlfriend didn't even tell him she was taking the footage she shot to the news.

"I start seeing my footage (on the TV), I started seeing my backyard with this giant crater boiling. I'm like, 'What the hell is that!'"

Madonna flashes her boobs on MDNA tour



Who would want to see Madonna's dry boob? I guarantee if she didn't have that bra supporting the bottom that it would have fell to the floor and bounced back like a yo-yo. The elderly performer decided to pull out her tit purposely while performing in Istanbul as part of the MDNA tour.

For her to have talked so much smack about Janet Jackson doing it she sure has the nerve.

Flo Rida Roundup Post :)

Flo Rida Makes The Crowd Scream During Summertime Ball 2012 Performance




Flo Rida got the party started during his enthusiastic five-song set at the Summertime Ball 2012 this afternoon (9th June). He started his electric performance with 'Club Can't Handle Me' and the Capital FM fans started bouncing. If anyone enjoying London's unexpected sunshine was still seated, it didn't take long for them to jump to their feet as Flo Rida threw down the gauntlet: "Let me hear you scream." 
The rapper from Florida then handed out red Flo Rida whistles to the lucky fans in the front row, before leading the 80,000 crowd at Wembley Stadium to a mass singalong of new single 'Whistle'.
Rocking a giant gold microphone with Flo Rida on the handle, the rapper wore a black leather waistcoat with studs on the shoulders and rock star shades. It didn't take long before the shirt came off, revealing a heavily-tattooed body and screams from the girls in the thrilled audience. 
The rapper, who has collaborated with J-Lo, shouted "Do we have any wild ones in the building?" before launching into 'Wild Ones' from his upcoming album, out next month. He continued to get the crowd in the party mood, leading them in a chant. "When I say Rida, you say Flo." 

During his anthemic 'Good Feeling', Flo Rida jumped into the screaming crowds and clambered up into the seats of Wembley Stadium. After he made his way back to the stage at London's Wembley Stadium, he finished his storming set with debut single 'Low'.  Usher, Jessie J, Jason Bieber, The Wanted, Ed Sheeran and Katy Perry are still to perform at the Summertime Ball 2012.
Flo Rida's setlist was:
'Club Can't Handle Me'
'Whistle'
'Wild Ones'
'Good Feeling'
'Low'

Royal Post - Cheapskate Edition: Saudi Princess Bails On 5 MILLION Pound Hotel Bill


As moonlight flits go it was one of the more brazen.

If you were trying to dodge paying a hotel bill of £5million you might just slip out of a side door and walk away quietly with some hand luggage.

However, when a Saudi princess tried it from a five-star establishment in Paris she was just a little bit too noticeable – what with her retinue of 60 servants in tow and a mountain of suitcases.


Princess Maha Al-Sudairi’s planned escape was always destined to end in farce and fiasco.

James Franco Crowns Kristen Stewart Warrior Queen



Kristen Stewart the Queen
Author and Actor James Franco


Nana is back in New Orleans after a week in London doing makeup for the Prometheus press tour. Fortunately, the other makeup artists on the film I'm shooting filled in for her so she could make sure the cast of Prometheuslooked good for Access Hollywood. I'm only a little bitter, and that's only because I love having Nana around and I don't like to share her. But I understand that she is in a creative role and needs to consider her own career; I also understand that she has made sacrifices for me. Last year, she spent six months in Detroit doing my turn-of-the-century (20th century, that is) hairdo on Oz, instead of taking a job as head of the hair department onSnow White and the Huntsman. I don't want to talk about whether she made the right decision or not, but for the past year she has reminded me that she would have had a lot of fun creating all the hairstyles onHuntsman. Well, Huntsman is finally in theaters and, since we're currently shooting nights, we took the occasion of Nana's return to see a matinee showing; Iris, my Mexican producing associate, came along. There is a great theater called Canal Place on Canal and Decatur where they take your order at your seat and serve gourmet popcorn, salads, sandwiches and beer. Nana got the truffle-flavored popcorn and I got regular because the flavors usually get old after a few bites.

Snow White and the Huntsman looks great and the actors are fabulous. The film gives us everything that it should: beauty, danger, romance, action, fantasy and a rewarding ending. Of course, this movie isn't breaking new narrative ground -- who expected that? In fact, the script by Evan Daugherty -- a fellow NYU film school grad -- is more than loyal to the familiar set pieces of the original story: three drops of blood on the snow, fair skin, dark hair, a wicked witch, a magic mirror, dwarves and a poisoned apple. The main addition to the classic tale is forecasted in the title. The Huntsman, played by handsome Chris Hemsworth, steals the meat of the role traditionally played by the dwarves: bonding with Snow White out in the woods. His presence means the film has less time to explore the dynamics of the makeshift family with the dwarves, which would be forgivable if only his romantic connection with Snow White were given enough space to develop properly. Some critics might go after the actors for being flat -- Nana said it seemed like Hemsworth was playing Thor in different clothes, and Iris, who worked on the first two Twilight films, praised Stewart but was still reminded of Bella Swan. We discussed, and Iris and Nana came around. They blamed the actors less -- I mean, the actors are going to look like themselves from movie to movie; it's not like they're character actors -- and started to look at the material they'd been given to work with. If Stewart and Hemsworth don't entirely pull off the romance of the year, it's the fault not of their acting as much as the script's structure. And if their previous incarnations are trailing them, that has less to do with their performances than with the overwhelmingly large place their previous roles occupy in our present culture. Whether they heed it or not, those two are under a ton of pressure: Is Chris just an unusually rugged man with a deep voice, or can he play anything other than a Norse god? Is Kristen just a pouty Vampire lover riding a temporary wave of pop culture madness, or is she the real deal? I believe that they are both talented and special performers who make the most of their material in this film. What's interesting is the way its story parallels the plight of the actors themselves.

Collapse )

In a way, the film could also be said to parallel Stewart's rise to stardom. Snow White is imprisoned in a tower for about a decade -- let's say from age eight to 18. From the looks of the place, I doubt she received much in the way of nourishing food or toiletries, let alone an education, so it is a little strange to see spry, beautiful, intelligent Kristen Stewart emerge from the dungeon. Of course, this is a fairy tale and we can allow that the princess is beautiful. These are Medieval conditions, so even if she hadn't been in prison, she'd probably look like crap from the lack of modern tooth brushing apparatuses and moisturizers alone. So we can assume that this is our version of beauty, standing in for an older version. But the idea that she is the chosen one, fit to rule the kingdom without any preparation or training, is hard to accept. This unearned entitlement is the same issue that bedevils the Twilight stories: these kids don't have to work to become beautiful, immortal, intelligent vampires; they just need to get bitten. Some might argue that Stewart -- or any young upstart buoyed by the surge of a successful franchise, album, or Internet meme -- is just as unjustly charmed. Some could say she had a lucky break when she was cast in Twilight and then rose to international stardom based less on her own skills than on the success of the project. But, whereas Snow White would more than likely be inarticulate, diseased and frail after being confined in a tower for 10 years, Kristen Stewart landed Twilight after years of working with some of the best directors in the business (David Fincher, Sean Penn). She actually does deserve the crown.

To me, then, the images of Snow White as a leader of immense strength, charging on horseback across the beach at the head of an army, has less to do with her character and more to do with the actress who plays her. Stewart has braved more scrutiny of her private life than most presidents. She has taken big career risks by doing films like Welcome to the RileysThe Runaways and On the Road (nudity, I hear). She has worked her ass off. Whatever Snow White may be, Kristen is a warrior queen. Give her the crown.

Should Make Her Release an Album in the Next Two Years, TBH

Lauryn Hill Says She Didn't Pay Taxes Because She Went 'Underground'


Former Fugees singer Lauren (It's fucking Lauryn. Rude.) Hill says she didn't cheat on her taxes; she went "underground."

A day after federal prosecutors in New Jersey charged Hill, 37, with three counts of "knowingly and willfully fail(ing) to make an income tax return to the IRS," according court documents, Hill took to Tumblr to share her side of the story.

Hill said she withdrew to heal and grow away from the forces that had oppressed and manipulated her in the past. She didn't name any names.

"It was critically important that I find a suitable pathway within which to exist, without being distorted or economically strong-armed," she wrote. "Failure to create a non toxic, non exploitative environment was not an option."

Hill won five Grammys when she launched her solo career with the album "The Miseducation of Lauryn Hill" in 1998, but she dropped out of sight in the early 2000s.

The singer pointed out that she paid her taxes before going underground.

"This only stopped when it was necessary to withdraw from society, in order to guarantee the safety and well-being of myself and my family," she wrote.

Hill made a more than $1.8 million from 2005 through 2007, the years she allegedly failed to pay taxes, according to federal court documents.

Hill said she conveyed the contents of her post when authorities questioned her about her taxes.

"Obviously, the danger I faced was not accepted as reasonable grounds for deferring my tax payments, as authorities, who despite being told all of this, still chose to pursue action against me, as opposed to finding an alternative solution," she wrote, adding that she always intended to rectify the situation.

She could face up to a year in prison or $100,000 fine for each of three counts, according to a press release from the Department of Justice. She is scheduled to appear before a judge on June 29.

Shauna Sand Caught Having Sex On The Beach



*** Explicit Content Warning: two people bumping uglies and other such adult stuff, so please, hide the kids before viewing ***

Okay, with Shauna Sand, well, it's hard to say she got caught having sex in public really since it's hard to be 'caught' just kind of being herself.

Well, with a young Courtney Stodden seemingly replacing her in terms of raunchy photo shoots in Americana institutions, Shauna has had to step up her game with some dude on vacation in St. Barts. Apparently, the story goes, Shauna was getting frisky on the beach with her man when she noticed the paparazzi shooting her. And instead of telling the photog to go away, she gave the more Sand-worthy shoutout 'Hey, why don't you shoot this!' and proceeded start making the naughty right there on the beach.

Now, everybody's got a mother somewhere, and this being mother's day week, and Shauna Sand being a mom herself, I'll respectfully keep my own honest commentary to myself on this one. Enjoy

Ryan Reynolds admits to being not-so-cute in his 20s


Hard to imagine a time when Ryan Reynolds wasn't a smoking hottie, (not that hard tbh) but even he admits to being a little goofy-looking in his 20s.

In a new interview with Details magazine, Reynolds, 35, talks about his evolving looks and gives tips on how to remain stylish.


On cringe-worthy old photos: "I recently saw a picture from when I was just a pup—maybe 20 or 21 years old. And I look pretty bad. I've got some weird facial hair, and my hair is glopped with about 6 pounds of gel. So I really don't shy away from aging at all. I love getting older."

On manscaping: "I see guys with, like, eyebrow art, and I wanna tell them, 'You don't have to go too crazy on your brows. Take it easy, man!'"

On his simple workout plan: "When I'm not training for a movie, it's more relaxed. I do a lot of running. Usually I'll run 4 to 6 miles about three times a week. You try to eat right but you don't always."


were you always hot/ cute (etc) or did you get hotter with age, ontd?

5 Questions with Tiffany Evans

There is always a new crop of amazing artists who fly under the radar but deserve their time in the spotlight. Tiffany Evans, 19, is one of those über talented artists, and she has over 100,000 Twitter followers to back that up.

Her 2004 self-titled debut album, which included Ciara on its lead single "Promise Ring," made a small splash on the charts but never received the hype it deserves. Fortunately, Evans didn't let that deter her dreams. She forged ahead and continued to create great music. In the years to come, she would join and leave Mathew Knowles' Music World record label, calling that time in her life a "season" and saying that she was "grateful" for the opportunity. Since then, Evans has been quietly working on a new EP, Take 1, which is the first of two installments. Evans tells ESSENCE.com exclusively that Take 1 will be released later this month and part two will be available by summer's end. Read what the R&B singer has to say about the first single, "If You Love Me," which is available below. Plus, she's got big news for her fans – she's expecting a little bundle of joy this October!

Jenny McCarthy has no qualms about posing nude for the July/August cover of Playboy, but the outspoken TV host is making it difficult for readers to see everything.

When asked recently if she plans to bare it all, McCarthy, 39, answered without hesitation.

"What's everything?" she said with a laugh during an interview on Today. "I mean I grew out a bush so nobody sees anything."

Explaining her reason behind the upcoming racy shoot, the Love in the Wild host says, "I figured [I'd do it] one more time before everything really falls apart. Why not? And [my son] Evan's tuition was really expensive this year."

The revelations didn't stop there.

When asked if she'll ever find "true love" by co-host Kathie Lee Gifford, McCarthy – who dates Chicago Bears linebacker Brian Urlacher – softly admitted, "I think I might be there – almost."

Demi Lovato’s Scandalous Past — Racy Bedroom Pictures Surface [PHOTOS]


Demi Lovato, 19, is no stranger to controversy.

The former Disney-starlet and current X Factor judge is not as innocent as people might think. Just last year, the singer/actress was admitted to rehab for personal issues such as cutting, bulimia and anorexia.

And now — we have this, exclusively.
Photo above shows what kinda.. what a normal girl sleepover would be like. When Demi‘s alone is when things get messy.

Main photo (& below) show Lovato posing seductively towards a camera in a two-piece lingerie. Demi, at that time, was only 18.

Shady friends: The pictures were sold to us by someone very close to her, and can be seen in some of the photos.

Surprisingly, Demi did not take the racy pictures herself — which is strange when compared to most celebrity scandal leaks.. including ones by fellow friend & former Disney queen, Miley Cyrus in mid-2008.

The photos were taken during the Camp Rock 2 phenomenon — right before tour.

We’ve contacted Demi‘s reps if they’d like to comment, so far, nothing. Enjoy the 80+ pics!

One Direction are planning to release their second album before Christmas in a bid to maintain their global fame. The X Factor stars only launched their debut album Up All Night, seven months ago.

A source told a Sunday newspaper that the lads are hoping to capitalise on the lucrative Christmas market. An insider told the Daily Star Sunday: "The plan is to have a new single out around November, with the album to follow a week or two later."

Meanwhile, One Direction recently hit the headlines when Liam Payne revealed that Harry Styles has loads of "celebrity" mates. The teen heartthrob told a Sunday newspaper that the 18-year-old has a list of "secret" phone numbers.

Liam told Celebs on Sunday that Styles does not readily share the details from his showbiz address book. He is quoted as saying: "Harry has loads of secret celebrity phone numbers and we find out about them later. "We'll see something in the papers and be like: "What's going on here?" and he'll be like: "Oh, it's Gary from Take That or whoever, don't worry about it.

Jessica Simpson's Baby Cover Exclusive Flops



Jessica Simpson's Baby Pictures Not Helping People Magazine Sales

People is suffering some baby blues after paying $850,000 for pictures of Jessica Simpson, her fiancé Eric Johnson and their newborn daughter Maxwell Drew for its latest issue. The ploy got quite a bit of media buzz, but THR has learned that it only sold a paltry 950,000 copies – a good bit under its average of 1.3 million a week.

While still pregnant, Simpson posed topless (in an homage to Demi Moore’s famous Vanity Fair cover) for Elle and launched a maternity line under her massively successful Jessica Simpson Collection through its master licensee, the Camuto Group.

People, which did not reply to requests for comment, has a history of betting large sums on celebrity baby photos, with varied results. Perhaps the most famous was a reported $4.1 million buy, in 2006, of exclusive North American rights to shots of Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, the first biological child of Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt. Its website set a single-day traffic record of 26.5 million page views when they were published. It was followed two years later by a reported $14 million purchase of the first published snaps of their twins Vivienne and Knox.

In the People story, Simpson observes of her daughter, born May 1: “My life has completely changed. From how I sleep to what I think about, Maxwell has definitely taken over everything. We stare at her all the time. We can’t get enough!”

Although the business transaction doesn’t appear to have been a favorable one for People, it’s a tidy sum to add to Simpson’s financial ledger. Her team has been responsible for a variety of remunerative deals, including, most notably, the Camuto Group association. Forbes estimated that it yielded $20 million for her in 2010 sales alone. She currently appears on NBC’s Fashion Star, which has been renewed for a second season.
