Best and Worst of the 2012 Tony Awards, as judged by E!


Sun., Jun. 10, 2012 10:19 PM PDT by Alyssa Toomey

"What if life were more like theatre?" 2012 Tony Award host Neil Patrick Harris asks the audience before breaking out into song and dance.

The magical night brought a slew of dancing stars and singing sensations to the stage at the Beacon Theatre in New York as performances by Ricky Martin, the cast of Once and a special award presented to Hugh Jackson made for an entertaining evening.

Missed out on all the action? Never fear, fellow theater lovers! We've got the best, the worst and all the rest from this year's 2012 Tony Awards:

Listening Party! : Fiona Apple's 'The Idler Wheel...'

Fiona Apple's new album, out June 19, is titled The Idler Wheel Is Wiser Than the Driver of the Screw and Whipping Cords Will Serve You More Than Ropes Will Ever Do.


Emotions are so darn beautiful — that's the message of music, much of the time. The giggling lilt of a melody, the ennobling swell of a crescendo: Popular songs, especially, often enhance our moods to lift us up, unbreak our hearts, drive us toward liberating confessions and cathartic climaxes. Courting the sublime so aggressively that it often gets ridiculous, pop music encourages listeners to imagine feeling in ways that make us bigger, better.

Fiona Apple's music does something different. A classically lovely woman whose gorgeous, sultry alto once led her toward alt-divadom, Apple has always dared herself to be and do something else: to say no to simple beauty and instead express the urges and insecurities that more accommodating artists tend to avoid.

This has never been truer than on Apple's first album in seven years, whose typically hard-to-digest title is partly The Idler Wheel — the part in a system of gears (on phonographs and cassette players, among other extraordinary machines) that, seemingly passively, helps other parts move. The feelings Apple takes on in her deliberately maddening, eventually addictive new songs are those that inch us along, filling up most of our lives: icky little feelings like petty jealousy, self-doubt, bored loneliness and shamed regret. This is the stuff we'd rather tamp down. Apple wraps her fingers around it and makes it unavoidable.

Snippet of unreleased Britney track produced by Rusko

Before production duties on 'Femme Fatale' were taken over by Dr. Luke and Max Martin, a list of people were rumored to be working on songs for Britney. Some of the names included were Tiesto, William Orbit, and Rusko. Unfortunately, all the songs produced and written by them were rejected in favor for Dr.Luke and his team or writers and co-producers.

It was also wildly reported at the time that the notorious 'Rusko house fire' destroyed all of the demos he prepared for Britney. But a video uploaded by Alex Greggs of the South Rakkas Crew, who was rumored to be working with Rusko for the Britney tracks, shows a  snippet of an unreleased track. In the video description, it states that the studio that they were working at was not the one that burned down at Rusko's house, and that the track was never completed.

Twentieth Century Fox TV Unveils Its 2012 Comic-Con Lineup

Earlier this week, Warner Brothers TV revealed its lineup for the San Diego Comic-Con International, which included five new live action dramas and several returning series. Now, Twentieth Century Fox TV has followed suit and made a few surprising programming decisions as well.

Fox almost always brings its animated series to play in San Diego and 2012 is no exception. "The Simpsons," "Futurama," "Family Guy," "American Dad," "The Cleveland Show" and "Bob's Burgers" are all back this year alongside Daniel Tosh's new Comedy Central animated series, "Brickleberry."

However, Fox is only bringing a single show from FX, with "Sons of Anarchy" returning to Sunday in Hall H. This means that popular genre series like "American Horror Story" and "Archer" will not have panels this year. "Glee" is also sitting out this convention despite a strong reception during previous panels in year's past. Aside from "Sons of Anarchy," only "Bones" will represent Fox in live action. And for this year's panel, both Emily Deschanel and David Boreanaz are slatted to appear.

Demi Lovato vs. Britney Spears: It's War!

They're former Disney darlings turned pop stars who've battled personal demons in the public eye, and now they're judging The X Factor.

With everything they have in common, you'd think Britney Spears, 30, and Demi Lovato, 19, would become fast friends. But in fact, the two singers can't stand each other — and their fiery feud is making working on the X Factor set unbearable!

"Tensions are at the boiling point," a show insider tells Star. "There is a bitter rivalry between them, and it's already pretty much exploded — which is crazy considering how early into filming it is."

"Demi thinks Britney is a twit, and Britney thinks Demi is beneath her," another source says. "They avoid each other as much as possible when the cameras aren't rolling."

'For Greater Glory' Star Eduardo Verástegui Talks War, Misrepresentations Of Latinos On Film

Few are familiar with the Cristero War that took place from 1926 to 1929 in Mexico. The brutal warfare began after persecuted Catholics refused to stop practicing their religion. An astounding 90,000 Mexicans were killed during the conflict -- including priests, nuns, and children. The film "For Greater Glory," released Friday, shines a spotlight on this little-known but horrific piece of history.

Shot almost entirely where the actual events of the war took place, the film stars Andy Garcia as General Velarde and Eduardo Verástegui as attorney Anacleto Gonzalez Flores. For Verástegui, who was born and raised in Mexico, "For Greater Glory" educated him on the unfathomable acts of violence that took place in his country.

The International Business Times had a chance to ask the actor about his personal connection to the film and how media representations of Latinos should be altered.

LINDSAY LOHAN LIED TO COPS



Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... Lindsay Lohan lied to cops Friday by telling them she was NOT driving the Porsche that slammed into a truck on Pacific Coast Highway, and as a result she could be prosecuted and her probation could be revoked.

Our sources say, when Lindsay was in the hospital getting checked out after the accident, cops from the Santa Monica Police Dept. paid a visit. Lindsay told police she was a passenger in the Porsche and her assistant was driving. But the lie didn't stick because later Lindsay's assistant later told police Lindsay was behind the wheel.

We're told police are writing up a report that will include Lindsay's lie. It's a crime to provide false info to a police officer. In addition, lying to police could trigger a probation violation in her shoplifting case, which means she faces the possibility of jail on 2 fronts.

Several eyewitnesses at the scene tell TMZ, after the crash Lindsay and her assistant both got out of the car on the passenger side, which means Lindsay had to climb over the console. It appears Lindsay had concocted the lie almost immediately after impact.

#ThronesAndRecreation


"Parks & Recreation" creator Mike Schur figured out a way to get the entire internet to forget about the underwhelming "Mad Men" finale Monday afternoon by kicking off the epic Twitter hashtag #ThronesAndRecreation, inviting fans to share ideas for a "Parks & Rec"-"Game Of Thrones" crossover season.

Schur, who goes by KenTremendous on Twitter, is an avowed "Thrones" fans who's written jokes about the HBO fantasy into "Parks" already. (Remember when Ben called Leslie 'Khaleesi'?)

After he tweeted, "I'm pretty sure the cast and writers would be up for a 100% cross-over season with Game of Thrones, if they were into it," "Parks" star Adam Scott said he was in and Aziz Ansari also got in on the fun. Soon enough, the hashtag took off with some hilarious suggestions for plot developments and premises from fans of both shows.

Truck Driver Lindsay Lohan Rear Ended Filed For Bankruptcy Last Year!

James Johnson, the truck driver rear ended on Friday by Lindsay Lohan, who has reportedly hired an attorney to pursue possible legal aciton against the starlet, filed for bankruptcy last year, listing a mere $80.00 in cash assets, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

As previously reported, Lohan rear ended the dump truck on PCH last Friday. The Porsche the actress was driving was totaled and sent Lohan and her assistant to the emergency room. Both were later released and didn't suffer serious injuries.

According to the court docs filed by Johnson in February 2011, and his business JJ's Trucking, he had $57k in debts. The trucker owes $3k in taxes and earns $2762.00 per month. When Johnson filed for bankruptcy he had only $80.00 in cash, furniture worth $3500 and owed $10k on his Ford F150 truck. Johnson had a truck repossessed in 2008 and still owes $28k.

The Compton based trucker reportedly claimed in the moments after the accident that Lohan's assistant allegedly tried to bribe him to not report it to the police. Johnson said he rebuffed the offer.

TMZ spoke with truck driver James, who tells us he was injured in the crash, and apparently wants money for his pain and troubles ... thus the reason for a lawyer.

James says he saw a doctor Sunday, despite previously telling us he felt fine. He would not describe the nature of his injuries, on the advice of his hired gun.

Kid From The Hughleys Arrested For Murder And Gang Activity



We don’t know any catchphrases from The Hughleys off hand, so we’ll just settle for “Holy s–t!” Former actor Dee Jay Daniels, who starred as D.L. Hughley’s smart aleck son Michael in the sitcom, has been arrested in California for a whole host of charges ranging from marijuana possession, gang activities and premeditated murder. The 23-year-old ex-child star has been linked to a fatal stabbing that occurred outside of a nightclub last August. He stands accused along with two other men, all of whom are suspected to be members of the notorious LA gang known as the Bloods. Despite this, it’s unknown whether the killing was the result of a gang dispute. Dee Jay, whose real name is Dorjan Lyndell Daniels, is being held in San Joaquin County jail where he’s staring down a potential life imprisonment sentence.

Zac Efron and Lily Collins Split

Zac Efron and Lily Collins

.

Zac Efron and Lily Collins' spring fling is over.

After just three months together, The Lucky One actor, 24, and the Mirror Mirror actress, 23, have split, multiple insiders confirm to Us Weekly exclusively.


"They're no longer together. They were never serious, though; it was just a casual thing and it fizzled," one insider explains. "They were never in the same place at the same time."

A second source adds: "Zac was never very serious about her. He didn't talk about her to friends."

The stars were first spotted holding hands during a friend's birthday dinner at L.A. eatery STK February 8. After that, the low-key stars -- who have been photographed together only once -- only grew further apart.

"It's true that their schedules are crazy right now, which isn't conducive to a relationship being easy," a pal tells Us.

Prior to his relationship with Collins, Efron was in a longterm relationship with his High School Musical costar Vanessa Hudgens, 23. Collins and her Abduction costar Taylor Lautner, 20, ended their courtship in September 2011.

X Factor flop flops with 6,731 copies sold



X Factor winner Alexandra Burke managed to shift just 6,700 copies of new album, Heartbreak On Hold.

It was the follow up to Alex’s debut Overcome, which sold over 132,000 copies in its first week back in 2009.

The double platinum album has gone on to sell over 800,000 copies in total, but it wasn’t enough to stop Alex leaving Simon Cowell’s Syco label last year.

This year, Alex returned on RCA, but new singles Elephant and Let It Go have struggled to get chart success.

After debuting at 33 in last week’s Top 40, Let It Go tumbled to number 74 yesterday with just over 4,000 sales.

And new album Heartbreak On Hold managed a mediocre debut at number 18, selling just 6,731 copies.

Game of Thrones actors to record audiobooks of GRRM's earlier works

Three castmembers from Game of Thrones have been recruited to record audiobook versions of George R.R. Martin's earlier work.

Iain Glen, who plays Ser Jorah Mormont, will be recording Dying of the Light, Martin's debut novel. Published in 1977, the book chronicles the reunion between a man and his first love on a rogue planet disappearing into the endless night of space.

Michelle Fairley, who plays Catelyn Stark on the TV series, will be recording Windhaven. This novel was a collaboration between Martin and Lisa Tuttle, originally published in 1981. It is set on a planet of numerous, small islands where strong winds allow 'flyers' - people wearing wings of superstrong, light material from their ancestors' crashed spaceship - to move between islands quickly.

Finally, and most appropriately, Ron Donachie, Ser Rodrick Cassel on the show, will be recording Fevre Dream, Martin's classic 1982 vampire novel. Donachie himself read the novel some years before being cast on Game of Thrones and was a huge fan. He has been suggested for the role of Captain Abner Marsh, the novel's main character, should it ever be made into a film.

In the same blog entry, Martin also reveals that The Armageddon Rag will almost certainly never be an audiobook, due to the difficulties of clearing the music used in the novel.

GET READY!!!; Sky Ferreira previews "Wild At Heart" single, "Red Lips"

 
There’s no debut record I’m more feverishly anticipating than that of golden-haired Goddess, fashion darling and inappropriately talented 19-year-old singer-songwriter, Sky Ferreira. (My love is well-documented.)

Finally, Ferreira’s just given us an extended taste of her long awaited lead single from the album this week: “Red Lips,” which was produced by Greg Kurstin and co-written by Ferreira and a little known songwriter named…Shirley Manson.

Below is a 1-minute unmastered snippet of the upcoming single, which more or less sounds like a most slay-worthy Garbage track, Sky style–her very own “Cherry Lips (Go Baby Go),” if you will. “Your numbers up, if you like it or not/What a shock,” she coolly declares on the crashing chorus.

The video drops tomorrow via Terry Richardson. And from the looks of things, all I can see is red, red, red…

'The Hunger Games: Catching Fire': Philip Seymour Hoffman offered the role of Plutarch Heavensbee

While rampant speculation on who is or is not in the running for the role of Finnick Odair in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire continues to set the Internet ablaze, producers have reportedly made their first offer for another pivotal role in the sequel.

According to multiple reports, Oscar-winner Philip Seymour Hoffman has been asked to play Plutarch Heavensbee, the new Gamemaker at the Capitol after Seneca Crane (Wes Bentley) was creatively executed at the end of The Hunger Games. Plutarch is a far savvier political animal than his predecessor, and he plays a crucial role in the events of Catching Fire.

Hoffman just ended a widely acclaimed run playing Willy Loman in Arthur Miller’s Death of a Salesman on Broadway, so why not take the summer off and then hop onto one of the biggest movie franchises in Hollywood? Should the deal go through, it will be the first major new role cast in Catching Fire. Director Francis Lawrence is due to begin shooting the film later this fall. Lionsgate had no comment.

EW
