Gabriel Garcia Marquez's brother confirms writer is suffering from dementia

Colombian Nobel Prize-winning novelist Gabriel Garcia Marquez is suffering from dementia and has been forced to stop writing, his family have said.

The brother of the 1982 Nobel literature laureate said he has tried to keep news about Marquez's health a secret, not because there is anything people should not know "but because it's his life and he's always tried to protect it."

"The fact is there are lots of comments. Some are true but they're always filled with morbid (details). Sometimes you get the sense they'd rather he were dead, as if his death were some great news," Jaime Garcia Marquez said.

He told students at a lecture in the city of Cartagena that his brother, who is 84, phones him frequently to ask basic questions.

"He has problems with his memory. Sometimes I cry because I feel like I'm losing him," he said, adding that he had now stopped writing altogether.

Hunger Games: Philip Seymour Hoffman Snags Major Role in Catching Fire

The odds are definitely in Philip Seymour Hoffman's favor!

Sources tell E! News exclusively that the Oscar winner has signed on to play Plutarch Heavensbee in Catching Fire, the much anticipated second movie in the Hunger Games trilogy.

"The deal was made right before the Fourth of July holiday," one source said.

Lionsgate does not comment on casting until something is official. An announcement about Hoffman is expected to be released any day now.

The Hollywood Reporter reported that Hoffman, 44, was offered the role on June 11.

[Spoiler?]Heavensbee is the new Head Gamemaker who may (or may not) be more loyal to reigning champ Katniss (Jennifer Lawrence) than the diabolical President Snow (Donald Sutherland).

Catching Fire is set to start shooting in the fall with director Francis Lawrence replacing Gary Ross.

Hoffman was most recently seen on Broadway with The Amazing Spider-Man star Andrew Garfield in the hit revival of Arthur Miller's Death of Salesman.

Katy Perry and Taylor Swift: Music's Mean Girls

Well this oughta be good

Katy Perry’s 3-D extravaganza Part of Me hit theaters this week. Obvious self-reflective implications aside, it’s strange that Perry chose this title from her collection because it’s lyrically the least Katy Perry-ish song in her repertoire. “Part of Me” foregoes the whipped-cream-and-rainbows sensibility that so perplexes (and captivates) my colleague Annie Barrett. It speaks of overcoming adversity and seeks self-empowerment. It’s also a hit job.

I’m not here to sift through the dross surrounding Perry’s divorce from Russell Brand. And I can’t fault Perry for documenting the unraveling of the relationship in the documentary — not to do so would be as glossy and inauthentic as one of her lolliprops. Still, it seems this song speaks to a potential directional shift in girl pop that, frankly, is troubling. Perry and her fellow hit-churner Taylor Swift have taken the break-up song to a new level, crucifying their exes publicly — to massive success. It begs the question: When did a few cute girls’ personal burn books turn into the American songbook?

Basic cult members don't like 'The Master'....of course.

Tom Cruise’s fellow Scientology members would like to master “The Master.”
A source familiar with Paul Thomas Anderson ’s film about the founder of a Scientology-like religious movement tells us officials of the controversial church group “hit the roof” when they learned — presumably through Cruise — that the movie contains a scene which suggests the belief system was little more than a product of the leader’s fertile imagination.

ONTD Star Trek fans can sleep a little better now

At a promotional junket for Dredd, Karl Urban looks to have let slip to SFX who Benedict Cumberbatch is playing in the forthcoming Star Trek sequel. When asked what it was like having the Sherlock actor on set, Urban said:
“He’s awesome, he’s a great addition, and I think his Gary Mitchell is going to be exemplary.”
Coming towards the end of a lengthy interview primarily concerned with his role in Dredd, it appears that Urban has accidentally revealed a much sought-after piece of information. Speculation about the principal villain has generally had Khan in the frame to take on the crew of the Enterprise second time round, but Urban seems to have unintentionally confirmed otherwise.
It’s exciting news – if it’s true. For the uninitiated, Gary Mitchell first appeared in original series episode “Where No Man Has Gone Before” as an old academy acquaintance of Kirk who ends up transformed into a wrathful God-like antagonist after encountering the galactic barrier.
Of course, there’s always the chance that this is an enormous red herring planted by the wily Urban on an unsuspecting SF journo. Gary Mitchell has already appeared in this iteration of the Trek universe courtesy of issue #2 of IDW’s Star Trek comic, and perhaps more importantly has been explicitly denied any part in Trek 2 by co-writer and producer Roberto Orci in a recent interview.
Then again, this wouldn’t be the first time Orci has been involved in Hollywood sleight of hand. He also worked on Tranformers: Revenge Of The Fallen, where Michael Bay denied Megatron would be appearing only for – surprise! – Megatron to play a key role in the film. Regardless, it’s an intriguing development for Trek fans, and one that is no doubt going be the cause of some furious debate.
Urban can be seen taking up the badge of 2000AD’s dreaded future lawman in the forthcoming Dredd, which is released via Lionsgate on 7 September.
Star Trek 2 is due for release 17 May 2013.


Initial speculation was correct after all. Thank goodness.

The cable channel TBS has agreed to acquire reruns of the CBS comedy "Two Broke Girls," which was the most-watched new comedy series of the 2011-12 season, at a price tag industry insiders said is between $1.5 million and $1.7 million per episode — believed to be the most paid ever for reruns of a comedy by a cable network.

"Two Broke Girls," about two Brooklyn diner waitresses struggling to save money to open a cupcake shop, is known for its raunchy humor and sexual innuendo. It was a hit for CBS in its first season. Despite the early success of "Two Broke Girls," it is unusual for reruns of a show to be sold after only one season on the air. If the comedy starring Kat Dennings and Beth Behrs endures a sophomore slump, TBS could end up with buyer’s regret. Reruns of "Two Broke Girls" will appear on TBS starting in 2015.


FX announced Tuesday that it will host exclusive syndication of the Mark Roberts-created sitcom starting in September 2014. The show went for a $750,000 an episode, far less than Warner Bros.' other show that recently sold to TBS, 2 Broke Girls, which went for a record-breaking $1.7 million per episode. Also went for far less than Chuck Lorre's other two record-breaking syndication hits, Men and The Big Bang Theory. Mike & Molly, which was the most-watched new series of the 2010-11 season, joins fellow CBS comedies How I Met Your Mother and Two and a Half Men in FX's syndication portfolio.

MGMT's cover of Fleetwood Mac's "Future Games"

Feast your ears on our cover version of Fleetwood Mac's track "Future Games" which we recorded for the forthcoming tribute Just Tell Me That You Want Me, an album featuring many wonderful artists that will be released August 13 in the UK and August 14 in the US of A. Our version is equal parts Haacked flight of fancy and attempted Escape From New York and is comprised mostly of first takes of improvised electronic musings. The song was written by the late Bob Welch (R.I.P) and originally clocked in at 8 minutes and 21 seconds. When it first came out, in the early 1970s, this would have been considered a "bathroom song." Through natural male enhancement techniques, we've made our version even longer and bigger, measuring exactly 9:11 (never forget). Yes, this was on purpose. We are currently making a new album.

Simon Amstell:The U.K. stand-up star properly introduces himself to NYC with Numb.

He'd been performing for years, but Simon Amstell didn’t get a lot of attention from the British public until he hosted a pair of saucy TV series—including game show Never Mind the Buzzcocks, which found him baiting celebrities with their own media-constructed personas. Since then, he’s found success in an autobiographical BBC Two series, Grandma’s House, and in searching, self-depricating stand-up shows. Though he visited NYC on the tour for his last special, Do Nothing, he’ll give New Yorkers more than just a taste of his act during a four-week run of his confessional new show, Numb. 

How does it feel to have to introduce yourself to an entire population who doesn’t know what you do? 
It’s nice to be new, really. In the U.K., people come with expectations now, and there’s already an idea of what the show may be. Here, I’m a stranger, and it’s interesting to see what they’re laughing at.

Canadian celebrity chef Anthony Sedlak dead at 29

The Canadian Press
Published Monday, Jul. 9, 2012 10:01AM EDT
Last Updated Monday, Jul. 9, 2012 10:41AM EDT
NORTH VANCOUVER, B.C. -- Canadian celebrity chef Anthony Sedlak has died at the age of 29.

Sedlak's family has released a statement saying he collapsed Friday, July 6, from an undiagnosed medical condition and his body was found later that day in his North Vancouver apartment.

Sedlak was best-known as the host of Food Network Canada's The Main, and a judge on Family Cook Off, as well as author of the national bestseller cookbook, The Main.

By the time he was 13, Sedlak knew he wanted to be a chef and, by 19, had completed a culinary arts program and four-year apprenticeship in Vancouver, before spending almost two years at La Trompette, a Michelin Star restaurant in London, England.

At 23, Sedlak won silver representing Canada at the World Junior Chef Challenge in New Zealand, and just months later, won Food Network's Superstar Chef Challenge, before going on to host his own show on that network for four seasons.

The statement from the Sedlak family thanks his fans and associates for all their love, devotion and condolences, and says a private funeral service will be held in Vancouver.


i was pretty shocked to read this. i really liked his show "the main." RIP

As they continue to hammer out a divorce settlement, Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have released a joint statement asking for privacy as they work out a custody arrangement for their daughter, Suri.

"We are committed to working together as parents to accomplish what is in our daughter Suri's best interests. We want to keep matters affecting our family private and express our respect for each other's commitment to each of our respective beliefs and support each other's roles as parents," read the statement from Holmes and Cruise's reps, Nanci Ryder and Amanda Lundberg respectively.

No word on when the couple will reach an agreement, but sources close to both sides say that Cruise, 50, and Holmes, 33, will likely agree to an arrangement where Suri, 6, lives in New York with her mother and her father is given generous visitation rights.

The official cause of Scientologist Alexander Jentzsch's death can't be determined pending the results of toxicology tests, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

The 27-year-old son of Scientology president Heber Jentzsch, who hasn't been seen in public since 2004, died July 2 in L.A.'s San Fernando Valley.

"Jentzsch's autopsy was done last week. There was nothing abnormal about it and his body didn't show any signs of trauma," Los Angeles County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter told RadarOnline.com exclusively. "The cause of death will be listed for the time being deferred, until the toxicology results are in, which should be about four to six weeks from now. There was also a bottle of Nyquil and several prescription bottles recovered from the scene."

‘The Walking Dead’ Season 3 Preview RECAP!

As promised, here is the recap of ‘The Walking Dead’ season 3 preview!

the walking dead season 3 comic con poster 0 rick

19 episodes of the series were aired through Saturday and Sunday with a 1 hour ‘Talking Dead‘ special. The Chris Hardwick hosted special had most of the teasers for the upcoming season. Several clips featuring the show’s actors describing their character’s mindset in the scene were sandwiched between commercial breaks during the marathon. Yes, I re-watched them all! The series pilot was also aired in black and white to capture that comic book feeling from whence the show’s premise came.

Collapse )

*Obligatory possible SPOILER ALERT*

Onto the special…

For the first part of the show, Glen Mazzara returned to the ‘Talking Dead’ couch along with Drew Carey. Apparently being a Z lister with nothing to do on a Sunday night qualifies you for the panel. He is a big fan of the show, but had little to offer in the way of insights and opinions. Robert Kirkman, Gale Ann Hurd and Dave Alpert also took a place on the show each revealing some detail. Sans Kirkman who prefers to toy with questions. Glen on the other hand was able to give out nuggets of information that will tempt your taste buds as if you weren’t already on edge for the October return.

*Merle Dixon will return and he might be more complex than just a pissed of red-neck. We have already had one teaser photo of his return. Click HERE for that…

*Michonne is a BAMF. We already knew that, but her character is a mystery to those of us who haven’t read the comic book. (I have read a few of them, but I like the surprise element in the show, so I stopped.) A clip showing about 1 minute of the sword wielding character at work aired and my excitement about a woman who isn’t just surviving, but thriving in the zombie apocalypse grows. She easily takes out two walkers before grabbing some aspirin and slipping out of the drug store. Dania Gurira does a fantastic job conveying her demeanor.

*The two zombies she was toting around on chains as she saved Andrea are dubbed “pets” by Glen and Chris.

*Andrea, played by Laurie Holden, snuck offset to talk to Chris and reveal that her character and Michonne become friends and trade zombie survival tactics instead of diaper coupons.

*Mazzara once again refers to the “Ricktatorship” that will be the dynamic in season 3. This makes me sigh and give an approving FINALLY!

*The prison, which we were treated to a brief glimpse of during the season 2 finale, will become a sanctuary. It appears that the group will have to clear out the inmates turned walkers before it can be a safe haven. A tour through the set shows that small town facility has war wounds. Blood splatters pop up everywhere.

*Carl, played by Chandler Riggs, called into the show and was thrilled to share that his character will become a soldier and there will be no more hiding in the house. “He is growing up, he’s definitely not a kid anymore … no more crying or being told to get in the house. He’s more of a soldier now, he’s more a part of the group now.” Whether or not he will continue disappearing while Laurie is off twisting Rick around her finger isn’t addressed. This kid makes me want to gobble birth control by the buckets.

*The Governor, who is probably the second most anticipated new character, will be a delicious mix of evil and narcissism. Glen described him as, “A guy who believes that this zombie apocalypse is all about him. That somewhere down the road history’s going to look back and there was one guy who kept the light on, who kept humanity going … he thinks he’s the messiah.

*David Alpert gives a kick in the stomach when he joins the panel in the second half of the show. A lot of the characters will die this season! “Honestly the thing that excites me most is that we’re gonna kill so many people this season … people that you care (about) and love and it’s going to be awesome.” I dunno. Alpert seems way too jazzed about killing people, but I guess it comes with the territory.

If Daryl dies then I will snort in disgust, turn the tv off and rant for at least 3 days. He has to, at the very least, outlive Lori/Carl. His character seems promising as he was upgraded from a guest star to regular in season 2. Norman Reedus also confirmed that “love blooms” and I am guessing he is referring to Daryl. While Carol drives me nuts with her soft helplessness, I think she will capture Dixon’s heart, but part of me hopes it is an Andrea/Daryl hookup.

UPDATE: The clip of Michonne being a BAMF is at the source now! Will try to embed ASAP.

Pass me the SOURCE

Big Brother UK: Ofcom receives 1,225 complaints about racist abuse

The Channel 5 show is to be investigated by watchdog after viewers complained about racist comments

Channel 5's Big Brother is facing a string of investigations by Ofcom after more than 1,200 complaints about incidents including a black contestant being called a gorilla and housemates labelled retards.

The media regulator is investigating three incidents, which have attracted a total of 1,225 complaints, to see they breach the UK broadcasting code.

The incident that prompted the most complaints from viewers, 1,108, involved housemate Conor McIntyre being abusive to Miss India UK title holder Deana Uppal. McIntyre was warned about his behaviour by Big Brother, in which he used a string of expletives and called her "a piece of shit". The incident occurred at 9.40pm on 25 June on Richard Desmond's Channel 5 show.

The second incident involved housemate Caroline Wharram calling Adam Kelly, a black contestant, a "ridiculous gorilla ... with no sanitation". Ofcom received 114 complaints from viewers about the perceived racial slur which occurred on 28 June at 10.25pm.

On 4 July, a former Big Brother housemate, Victor Ebuwa, appeared on spin-off show Big Brother's Bit on the Side. Ebuwa referred to the housemates as functioning retards, which prompted three complaints to Ofcom. The incident occurred at 11.20pm.

"Channel 5 is committed to complying with Ofcom's broadcasting code and will help to facilitate a speedy investigation into this particular episode of Big Brother and Big Brother's Bit on the Side," said a spokesman for the broadcaster.

A spokeswoman for the Equality and Human Rights Commission said it would not be looking at the incidents as broadcast falls outside of its enforcement remit.

Justin Bieber's 911 Call

Justin Bieber called 911 minutes AFTER he was pulled over for driving 80 mph on an L.A. Freeway last week to report FIVE paparazzi who continued to chase after him ... and TMZ has the recording.

During the call, Justin tells the operator, "I have like 5 cars following me."

He continues, "They are driving really reckless."

When the operator asks Justin for his last name, the singer answers ... "ummm, Johnson."

The operator then asks Mr. Johnson to describe his car ... to which Justin replies, "A Fisker."

The operator, who's obviously not a car person asks, "What kind of car is that?"
Justin: "Ummmm ... a Fisker."

The operator then asks Justin if he is the same person who was previously stopped on the 101 Freeway. Justin says he was ... but explains, "They're the ones that are driving recklessly now, I'm just trying to like not have them be on my tail right now. "

Bieber continued, "Before I was driving fast so I could get away from them and got pulled over myself."

The operator told Justin officers had been dispatched to help him out.

LA96.3 FM aired the 911 call this morning.

As we previously reported, Bieber had been cited for going 80 ... but the person who initially called the cops on the singer, L.A. City  Councilman Dennis Zine, said he believed Bieber was going at least 100 mph and was dangerously weaving in and out of traffic.

Zine -- a former LAPD motor officer -- told TMZ Bieber was driving so recklessly, he's SHOCKED the singer didn't crash and kill anyone. In fact, Zine said Bieber belongs behind bars.

Angelina Jolie made Mick Jagger cry

The hypnotic effect Angelina Jolie has on men is well documented but the fact that she drove one of rock’s most notorious lady killers, Mick Jagger, to obsession and had him “virtually sobbing” over her is now being exposed in a new book. Christopher Andersen reveals that the Rolling Stones frontman would constantly bombard Jolie with calls begging to see her. Jagger fell for Jolie when she played a stripper in one of the band’s music videos in 1997 and despite being married at the time to Jonny Lee Miller, Bertrand “loved Mick for Angie… and felt that he could teach her about fame,” the late actress’s friend Lauren Taines says in the book. In excerpts of MICK: The Wild Life and Mad Genius of Jagger printed in The New York Daily News, the pouty-lipped singer went after Angelina hard and was infatuated by her wild side even admitting that, “She scares me a little. I like that.” At the time Angelina “used hard drugs, had a fondness for S&M and was a self-confessed cutter. The tome reveals that the brunette beauty initially refused to return Mick’s calls which did little to deter him and only served to make him pursue her more.

“Angelina, it’s Mick. Will you please, please call me?” “Miss Jolie, why aren’t you returning my calls?” “Angelina, I have got to speak to you. Call me,” were some of the incredibly desperate message left. The cat and mouse game continued between them for several years and Taines added that she was amazed at how Jolie was “messing with Mick’s head” and he was “virtually sobbing” on the phone trying to get her to spend time with him. Even when Mick was ending his marriage with Jerry Hall in 1999, he was still in hot pursuit of the now mother-of-six, and presented her with a $5,000 pair of earrings. source


Info on Tom and Katie's settlement!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes have reached a divorce settlement, and as RadarOnline.com exclusively reported first, she will have primary custody of their daughter Suri Cruise.

Katie will continue to live in New York City with Suri, 6, and RadarOnline.com has exclusive details about Tom’s visitation rights, and one point that was important to Katie was that nanny and bodyguards she hired continue to be with Suri.

"Katie insisted that Suri's nanny and bodyguards always accompany her when she visits Tom. Katie did this for several reasons. This will ensure a smooth and easy transition for Suri when she is with Tom.

“Suri is Katie's number one priority. Tom only has Scientologists that work for him and Katie insisted that her staff will always be with their daughter. Under terms of the settlement, Suri isn't permitted to be exposed to anything Scientology related and this includes going to any Scientology churches, parties, etc. Katie made sure that this was ironclad in the agreement," a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com.

Tom's Risky Business: The REAL reason the settlement was reached

[BlindGossip] When the person who appears to have the power in a relationship backs down quickly in a dispute, you know that there have to be some compelling reasons why. Although all the talk up to this point has been about his involvement with a powerful group, there were actually three other reasons he settled so quickly.

Here are the three reasons: 1. His very personal relationship with a professional athlete. 2. His very personal relationship with a musician. 3. His very personal relationship with a famous actor.

She was ready and willing to expose all three relationships to get what she wanted. The scandal of having these three famous people deposed by attorneys about their sexual relationships would have destroyed all four men. So, he gave her the thing she wanted most so that his biggest secret could remain a secret.

AI's Jessica Sanchez for Miss Saigon movie?

AMERICAN IDOL's Jessica Sanchez in the Running for MISS SAIGON Film?

AMERICAN IDOL's Jessica Sanchez is reportedly in the running for the upcoming MISS SAIGON film. Sanchez, 16, was the season 11 runner-up in the singing competition.

“If she’s the one that they’ve chosen, or she’s somebody in serious consideration, then that’s a good thing. We all know she’s talented, we all know she’s actually quite beautiful,” MISS SAIGON's original "Kim," Lea Salonga, said as reported by the Manila Bulletin today.

The film, which is still in the early stages of development, had previously announced Lee Daniels as director; no official release date has yet been set.

Miss Saigon, based on the Puccini opera Madame Butterfly, is brought up-to-date with music and lyrics by Alan Boubil and Claude-Michael Schönberg (the creators of Les Misérables), with an English translation by Richard Maltby, Jr.

It is a story of an American soldier and a Vietnamese girl who fall in love, only to be separated during the fall of Saigon. Their struggles to find each other over the ensuing years end in tragedy for her and a fighting chance for the child he never knew he had. Miss Saigon is an epic, daring pop opera that gives a multi-ethnic cast of strong singers an opportunity to shine in show-stopping numbers like "I Still Believe," "Why God Why?" and "The American Dream."

Other actresses reported to be in consideration for the role have included singer Charice and GODSPELL's Anna Maria Perez de Tagle.

The World Was A Much Better Place With MTV’s Rock N Jock Sports

The World Was A Much Better Place With MTV’s Rock N Jock Sports
01.09.12 Written by Burnsy

Over the weekend, my Uproxxian colleague Danger Guerrero sent me a link to an old MTV Rock N Jock Softball clip, and it basically turned my afternoon into a complete waste. I didn’t get pushed into the YouTube wormhole as much as I willingly belly-flopped into the extensive search results for all things Rock N Jock, and I spent a good 4 or 5 hours reliving one of the most important pop cultural influences of my teenage years. After all, which child of the 90s didn’t desperately want to take a 10-point shot or a swing at the gold ball?

According to MTV’s website, the Rock N Jock franchise is alive and well, but that’s a bit misleading. Currently airing on MTV 2 on Saturday mornings, the latest version of Rock N Jock is a series hosted by Todd Richards and “Dirty” as they travel to various extreme sports events to talk to athletes like Shaun White and Ryan Sheckler, which basically sounds like every show that airs on Fuel TV. Clearly, it’s a far cry from the days of the Bricklayers and Violators battling for terrible fashion supremacy.

"Vampire" Japanese Trailer

Shunji Iwai's "Vampire" stars Kevin Zegers, Keisha Castle-Hughes, Amanda Plummer, Trevor Morgan, Adelaide Clemens, Yû Aoi, Kristin Kreuk and Rachael Leigh Cook.

The flick is scheduled to be released in Japan on September 25, 2012.

ETA: Synopsis
Vampire is not a horror film. It is about Simon, a quiet, sensitive biology teacher who uses online message boards to meet suicidal soulmates. He then tricks them into thinking they are joining together in a suicide pact, so that these women will cause their own demise and he can reap his reward —their blood. It is never clear if Simon's cravings are psychological or physical, and his blood drinking habits don't always agree with him. As a scientist he wants to save lives, starting with his dementia-inflicted mother, but his urges are unstoppable. Then Simon meets his dark mirror image, another young man with the same affliction who turns out to be a violent murderous beast.

Acclaimed Japanese director Iwai Shunji (All About Lilly Chou-Chou) directs his first English language film in his signature meditative style, drenched in black humor, with flashes of surprisingly beautiful macabre imagery and a haunting piano score. Vampire isn’t just about Simon's unusual needs; it’s also a surreal and even humorous exploration of death.

Is “Coming Out” the New Publicity Stunt? Star Jones Thinks So

Star Jones makes no apologies for being outspoken, speaking out about her disdain for VH1 reality show “Basketball Wives” and her issues with ABC’s “The View” co-host Barbara Walters. This time, she’s turning her attention to Anderson Cooper, who along with Frank Ocean, came out of the closet this week. Cooper opened up about his sexuality in a letter published by The Daily Beast, saying:
“The fact is, I’m gay, always have been, always will be, and I couldn’t be any more happy, comfortable with myself and proud. I still consider myself a reserved person and I hope this doesn’t mean an end to a small amount of personal space,” he wrote. “But I do think visibility is important, more important than preserving my reporter’s shield of privacy.”

Star reduced Cooper’s coming out to a mere publicity stunt and likened it to Oprah’s admission of drug use years earlier:
“[Cooper is] a daytime talk show host and when the rating slip in daytime, the hosts tend to tell you lots of things about them. I remember Oprah said she smoked crack, Oprah said she was pregnant at 14 and considered suicide … There [are] times when you generate information for ratings.”

Considering the potential backlash that a public figure faces when “coming out,” it’s hard to accept Jones’ claim that it was probably for publicity. However, it’s fair to assume ratings will increase simply because of the chatter around Anderson Cooper’s big reveal. So does she have a point? source

Samantha Ronson: Paris Hilton Is An Insult To DJ's

LINDSAY Lohan's ex-lover Samantha Ronson has criticised Paris Hilton for attempting to launch a career as a DJ.

The socialite showed off her spinning skills by playing a short set at the Pop Music Festival in Sao Paulo, Brazil last month.

However a technician was seen moving in to work the Pioneer decks for the novice throughout the set.

And Ronson is adamant she should leave the work to professionals.

She rages to TMZ.com: "That s*** with [Hilton], It's like, c'mon man. She's tried everything now. Just put some quality behind the s*** that you do.

"Put some effort into it... If you do the work, your work will speak for itself (but) if you're just like: 'Oh I want to figure out how I can make more money this week', it insults the people that work really hard at it...

"It's like me calling myself a doctor from reading (health website) WebMD twice."


Kate Upton Dating Detroit Tiger Justin Verlander? Dating Rumors Heating Up

title or description

All-Star Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander and Sports Illustrated swimsuit pinup Kate Upton spent some time together last weekend in Detroit, fueling rumors that the two might be an item.

The comely blonde model, a native of St. Joseph, Mich., was seen by several fans in Verlander's suite at the Palace of Auburn Hills at last Thursday's Aerosmith concert. The two stars were joined by her BFF, model Lizzy Glynn, and his pal Frank Viola, Jr. (son of Minnesota Twins' pitcher Frank Viola).

After the show, the gang relocated to a bar with a mechanical bull (also nearby is Auburn Hills' Toby Keith's I Love This Bar And Grill). According to this Tweet and photo from Glynn, Viola chivalrously took off his pants so she could wear them on the ride.

"He took off his pants so I could wear them to ride the mechanical bull.Yes, Southern gentlemen do exist!! @FrankViola3," Glynn Tweeted.

Detroiters later saw the foursome classing up their evening with a few cocktails at Birmingham's South Bar.

The next night, Upton turned up at the Detroit Tigers game sporting a baseball cap with the Old English D.

Earlier, the two starred in an ad together for MLB 2012 on joining "The Perfect Club."

Gossip sites say Verlander, who will take the mound as the American League's starting pitcher at Tuesday's Major League All-Star game, has been in a long-term relationship with college girlfriend Emily Yuen.

Do you think Justin and Kate would make a good couple?

Person Behind @GameOfThrones Does't Know How to Spell Kit's Last Name

Jon Snow has more problems than the king behind the wall.

As first reported by the Game of Thrones Twitter account, series star Kit Harington has a broken ankle. And the injury will keep him from attending the HBO show's Friday Comic-Con panel.

A network representative confirms to The Hollywood Reporter that Harington was not injured on set -- nor will his injury interfere with production -- but he does join co-star Lena Headey as the second major Game player to bow out of the San Diego trip on less than a week's notice.

EW first reported Monday morning that Headey has a scheduling conflict, though second season addition and Downton Abbey alum Rose Leslie (Ygritte) has been added to the panel.

Production is already underway for season three of the HBO series, with Belfast, Northern Ireland, remaining the hub. The network also recently announced that showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will take the director's chair for the first time at some point during the next 10-episode run.

Game of Thrones' Comic-Con panel -- which now features Leslie, Alfie Allen, Emilia Clarke, Michelle Fairley and Richard Madden -- takes place at 2:45 p.m. in Hall H.

Frank Ocean to Release ‘Channel Orange’ Tonight

Frank Ocean has another big surprise in store for his fans. According to whispers in the Twittersphere, the Odd Future crooner will release his long-awaited Def Jam debut Channel Orange to iTunes tonight.

Ocean revealed the unexpected news during a taping of “Late Night with Jimmy Fallon” earlier today. The talk show host had teased a “big announcement” as well. Several fans who were in the audience leaked the news to Twitter following the taping.

“Am I allowed to say? Frank Ocean’s album is out TONIGHT on iTunes, at 12:30 AM when Fallon airs. Smart move,” wrote Lindsey, a fan who attended Monday’s taping.

Ocean’s manager Kelly Clancy also tweeted, “i wouldn’t miss frank ocean on fallon tonight…trust me… ‪#channelorange‬.”

The album’s early digital release comes a week before it was originally scheduled to arrive on July 17. Physical copies still won’t hit stores until then.

During his appearance on “Late Night,” Ocean also performed “Bad Religion,” a song off Channel Orange that raised questions about his sexuality.

The 17-track follow-up to 2011’s Nostalgia, Ultra features André 3000 (“Pink Matter”), Earl Sweatshirt (“Super Rich Kids”), and John Mayer (“White”).

Hollywood to Remake Ramayana with Sallu, Keanu & Gary Oldman?

Most actors are playing superheros these days. But Salman Khan might just essay the role of the original superhero Hanuman. It seems Hanuman will take over from Spiderman, Superman, Batman, and of course, G.One.

Reportedly, Salman has been approached to play Hanuman in the modern version of the epic Ramayana that will be set in New York. The story is based on the rebirth of Hanuman.

Initially, Aamir Khan was approached for the role, but things did not work out. We assume Aamir has been keeping extremely busy with his TV show and upcoming films.

Apparently, Shilpa Shetty and Hollywood star Keanu Reeves will play Rama and Seeta, and Gary Oldman (um, Gary's not a Hollywood star?!) will essay (what is the obsession with this word rme) the role of Raavan.

If Salman gives his nod for the film, this would definitely be the most unique and different movie done by Sallu (fan nickname for Salman Khan).

While he has successfully built his image of an 'action hero' from being the romantic chocolate boy (lolwut), playing a superhero is something Salman hasn't done till yet. (ESL fail on whomever wrote this.)

Salman has also been approached to play Iron Man in the Hindi remake of the film The Avengers.

However, not everyone in the Hindu community, both in India and the US, are excited about the upcoming film.

Hindu leaders in America are concerned Keanu's reported portrayal of the incarnation of Lord Vishnu in a new movie will be another awful Hollywood depiction of their religion, belief system and gods."Top Hindus are still reeling from the way Mike Myers poked fun at their religion in The Love Guru, and they fear Reeves' new film Hanuman, in which he'll play Rama, will be another misinformed film about Hinduism.

Hindu statesman Rajan Zed tells WENN, "Hindus are concerned. If the makers of this proposed movie intend to base the storyline on the epic Ramayana and make references to it or portray Hindu gods/goddesses in the movie, we would urge the makers to stay true to the story and the spirit of the timeless epic and other Hindu scriptures."

For those of you who don't know, Ramayana is an ancient Sanskrit epic about the life and journey of Rama, an avatar of Vishnu. It's not just a story, it's an insanely important part of Hindu history, philosophy, religion, etc. It's not a joke. (Read more about Ramayana at Wikipedia.) I think if it's done tastefully, it could be amazing, and I would love to see more Hindu influence in the Western world. ETA: Thank you to all of the Hindu ONTDers who are leaving comments -- it's very interesting to read your feelings and thoughts. I have read a shortened (and English translated) version of the Ramayana, and I grew up with several Hindu friends, but to me it's just brilliant literature as I am an Anglo-American Christian. 



Christian Bale is in love with Tom Hardy

Empire Magazine has published a rather excellent interview with Christian Bale for Christopher Nolan’s hugely anticipated ‘The Dark Knight Rises.’ In the interview Bale discusses his experience playing Bruce Wayne/Batman opposite Tom Hardy’s merciless, masked villain Bane, revealing that ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ was a much more physical film for him than the two previous installments in Nolan’s Dark Knight saga, “It’s the first time in Chris’ movies that we’ve had an adversary who’s physically superior. Previously it’s always been an intellectual battle and you know what’s going to happen if they meet and it gets to a fistfight….”Tom is phenomenal. He’s an extraordinary actor. If I was a director I would want Tom to be in my movies. He knows his shit. But it’s a funny distance that you have in these movies, literally, by being cocooned by a cowl. I don’t truly feel like I’ve worked with Gary [Oldman], even though we’ve done three movies together. I don’t really feel like I’ve worked with Gary because I’m here in this darkness every time. And likewise with Tom, we’re both behind these masks. He’s feeling that isolation as well. It’s a strange feeling. So we agreed after this we’d like to work with each other on something one day!

Flawless Literature hit 20 million copies!!! <333333333333333333

'Fifty Shades of Grey' Author Earns $50 Million ---- U.S. sales of the "mommy porn" trilogy hit 20 million copies.

As of July 2, sales stood at 9.8 million paperbacks and 9.6 million ebooks for a total of 19.4 million copies sold. Add in another 12 million books sold abroad, and worldwide sales top 31 million copies since Vintage published the three-book series in March.

Such sales figures for a hit series are not unusual -- the Twilight series saw similar sales figures by the publication of the fourth and last book in series -- but what is shocking is the speed at which Fifty Shades has hit the 20 million-copy plateau. It took Twilight more than three years to hit that mark; Fifty Shades did it in less than six months.

The sales are producing enormous earnings for author E.L. James. Using roughly standard royalty rates of 7 percent for paperbacks and 25 percent for ebooks James has earned $35 million on U.S. book sales alone. Add in the $5 million she received for the movie rights from Focus Features, and her take is up to $40 million. International royalties are harder to assess, but even a conservative assessment of $1 per book puts James’ international earnings at more than $11 million.

James’ total take for Fifty Shades in less than six months? At least $50 million and counting.

Not bad for a project that started as a takeoff on Twilight posted to a fan fiction site and written to help James deal with her “midlife crisis.”

"Queen of Clown Porn" Hollie Stevens, 30, dies of breast cancer

The alt-adult performer known as Hollie Stevens (Twitter, Tumblr, Flickr, Wikipedia, MySpace) has died of breast cancer.
In addition to her work in indie pornography (including "clown porn"), she was also a model for, and contributor to, the weirdo horror-rotica zine Girls and Corpses.
From an early account of Hollie's story by Vanessa Pinto at SF Weekly, it sounds like the lack of access to affordable health care (and health insurance) was a significant factor in the case of Hollie, a freelance creative based in San Francisco:

She was no different than a lot of us when we were young who believe we're invincible. So when this very young healthy woman noticed a lump on her breast, she let it go at first.
"I noticed it and paid attention to it, but going to the doctor is hard when you don't have insurance," says Stevens.

The lump didn't go away.

She recently accepted Eric Cash's proposal. He recalls:

On Wednesday, June 5th, at 330am Hollie accepted my marriage proposal.
Later that morning, at around 1130, a team of 4 doctors came into her hospital room, and informed us that her cancer has metastasized to the lining surrounding her brain. At that point, the clearest prognosis they could guess at was a worst case scenario of 3 weeks, and a best case scenario of 3 months.

Is “Call Me Maybe” Turning Our Daughters Into Sluts For Satan?

Carly Rae Jepsen is a powder keg of slutty energy. The whorish singer has captured radio waves with her secular summer jam, “Call Me Maybe” — a tour-de-force of sexual groveling featuring depraved lyrics condoning sinful group sex and illicit drug use.

The song has become a mantra for secular teenagers around the country, dominating the charts, as well as Facebook statuses and Tumbler accounts. Teenage girls have adopted the song lyrics into some twisted philosophy that excuses their shameful sexual behavior, including but not limited to — garage sex, random sex, pre-marital sex, unsafe sex, hot sex, and grass sex.

Possible X Factor hosts; Mario Lopez? Stacy Keibler? Khloe Kardashian?

Simon Cowell doesn’t want to make the same mistake twice.

The X Factor chief is taking his own sweet time finding the ideal host for the second season of the Fox version of his hit show. Unlike last year, when host-bot Steve Jones handled the show solo, Cowell wants two people for the gig this fall. And instead of having a host on the singing competition from the very start, the audition rounds (which are already being shot) will be host-free. “I want to work with a boy and girl and I definitely think this is a role for two people,” Cowell recently told reporters. “[We] have narrowed it down to 5 people.”

Some names we’re hearing are under consideration: BET personality Rocsi Diaz, actor and America’s Best Dance Crew host Mario Lopez and actress/model Stacy Keibler. Add to that some names E! Online is hearing: Khloé Kardashian, Kelly Osbourne, BET’s 106 & Park host Terrence J, sportscaster Erin Andrews and radio personality Mike Catherwood. UPDATE: Two more names sources say have been considered: VH1 sketch comedy actress Stevie Ryan and Vampire Diaries actress Katerina Graham.

The Most Eye-Popping Video Of 2012

Do you like gay porn and pop music? If the answer is yes, then - chances are - The Aikiu's new video is for you. I'm not going to pretend like I have any idea who these guys are. According to their website they hail from Paris and have released a couple of well-received EPs. Obviously tired of waiting for the world to catch on to the magnificence of their sweet electronic sound, they took matters into their own hands and delivered the year's most outrageous video to promote new single "Pieces Of Gold". The song is great but, let's face it, most people are here for the visual aspect. Gay porn (there are no bits on display but this is definitely NSFW) is interspliced with footage of the band performing. It's clever and very, very funny. There really is nothing less sexy than someone's fuck face. So The Aikiu have caught my attention. Looking forward to their next move.

First Look At Chiwetel Ejiofor And Thandie Newton In 'Half Of A Yellow Sun' Film Adaptation

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Here's your first official look (above, courtesy of our friends at Arise magazine) at the much-dabated (on S&A anyway) film adaptation of celebrated author Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie's Orange Prize-winning novel, Half Of A Yellow Sun. Principal photography is complete on the project which was shot in both Nigeria and London, with a cast that includes Thandie Newton, John Boyega, Chiwetel Ejiofor, Dominic Cooper, Anika Noni Rose, Joseph Mawle and Genevieve Nnaji (as well as HBIC Onyeka Onwenu - OP) .

This is playwright Biyi Bandele's feature film directorial debut.

Described as an epic love story, here's the official synopsis released by the film's producers which tells us what role each starring actor will play:

... weaving together the lives of four people swept up in the turbulence of war. Olanna (Newton) and Kainene (Rose) are glamorous twins from a wealthy Nigerian family. Returning to a privileged city life in newly independent 1960s Nigeria after their expensive English education, the two women make very different choices. Olanna shocks her family by going to live with her lover, the “revolutionary professor” Odenigbo (Ejiofor) and his devoted houseboy Ugwu (Boyega) in the dusty university town of Nsukka; Kainene turns out to be a fiercely successful businesswoman when she takes over the family interests, and surprises herself when she falls in love with Richard (Mawle) an English writer. Preoccupied by their romantic entanglements, and a betrayal between the sisters, the events of their life loom larger than politics. However, they become caught up in the events of the Nigerian civil war, in which the lgbo people fought an impassioned struggle to establish Biafra an independent republic, ending in chilling violence which shocked the entire country and the world.

The crew includes award-winning cinematographer John de Borman (An Education, The Full Monty), production designer Andrew McAlpine (BAFTA winner for The Piano), and award-winning Nigerian songwriter Cobhams Asuquo and singer-songwriter Keziah Jones who are composing original music for the film, which will likely be released sometime in 2013
