Lady GaGa should have a rest while Björk wears her dress

Yeah, Björk exactly not the kind of girl who’ll ever turn up onstage in a T-shirt and jeans.

And she spectacularly lived up to her oddball reputation at the Roskilde Festival in Denmark yesterday.The Icelandic visionary turned up for her headline gig in a frock adorned with strange robotic-looking snakes.She teamed the slithery number with a hairdo that would scare off most living reptiles, opting for a multi-coloured barnet.

‘The Hobbit’ Scroll Shows Ten Scenes, and a First Look at Beorn

A batch of new images from The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey have hit today, but Warner Bros., MGM, and Entertainment Weekly have hit upon an unusual and (in this case) appropriate way to present them all at once. The images are stitched together to form one giant image “scroll” that shows several recognizable scenes from the first half of J.R.R. Tolkien‘s novel.

That piece above is just part of the image, and those who know the novel will instantly recognize a couple of the scenes depicted. Nearly everyone will recognize the moment on the left, in which Bilbo (Martin Freeman) uses the sword Sting to light his way through an underground cavern inhabited by Gollum (Andy Serkis). The other images below show Wargs howling around goblin-lit fires meant to flush Bilbo and his company from trees on the far side of the Misty Mountains, and the first look at Gandalf (Ian McKellen) speaking with the man-bear Beorn (Mikael Persbrandt).

One version of the full image is below.

You can click this image to enlarge, but the one at EW has a zoom function featuring a lot more detail.


High and mighty 'walked on water' Katy Perry rejects American Idol charity offer


The rumor mill is running on fumes at this point as practically every pop star imaginable has had his or her name floated as a possible replacement for American Idol judges Jennifer Lopez, Steven Tyler and Randy Jackson. Not that any of the three music-turned-TV stars have made an exit announcement -- official or otherwise -- but hey, it’s fun to play this game! Not.

So the latest short list has the likes of Adam Lambert “in talks” for a spot (the season 8 runner-up later issued a statement saying, “IF Idol wants to talk to me about judging, I'd be more than flattered to have that conversation”) and Nicki Minaj, Will.I.Am (who recently did a tour of duty on The Voice UK), Fergie, Miley Cyrus and Katy Perry “being considered.”

While Cyrus makes sense as a judges’ table foil to fellow Disney alum Demi Lovato, who’s sitting in on The X Factor this year, and Fergie and Minaj (along with Lady Gaga and Elton John) are often the first go-to’s on a search for credibility, success and relevance in music, Katy Perry is an unlikely candidate.

Michael Buble joins Team Blake

LOS ANGELES (AP) — NBC says "The Voice" is teaming a crooner and a country singer for the show's new season.
The network said Monday that Michael Buble will serve as adviser to coach Blake Shelton's team of contestants when the singing contest returns in September.
Buble, who described himself as a "big Blake fan," said he's having a terrific time working with Shelton and his singers. Buble started taping his appearances on "The Voice" Monday in Los Angeles.
NBC has yet to announce advisers for the show's three other coaches, Christina Aguilera, CeeLo Green and Adam Levine.
Kelly Clarkson, Jewel and Baby Face were among last season's advisers, guiding contestants in their choice of songs. "The Voice" is back for its third season Sept. 10.

Fresh off his first official television debut, recently opening up about his sexuality, and a number one album, singer-songwriter Frank Ocean certainly has a lot to be happy about right now.

Ocean performed his latest song "Bad Religion" on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, following a special surprise that his new album, channel ORANGE, will be fully available online and on iTunes today, a week before it's original July 17th physical release date.

Ocean has received nothing but support from his family, friends and fans following his open letter regarding the details of his sexuality after rumors sparked due to the apparent lyrical content of his album said by some critics.

After posting a full stream of channel ORANGE via iTunes on his tumblr account, following song titles like "Pink Matter," "Bad Religion," "Super Rich Kids" and "Forrest Gump" appearing as some of the top trending topics within hours, "Channel Orange" has still not left the top five trending topics on Twitter as of now and the album is currently at number one on The iTunes Album Top 100 Chart. His management team joined in admiration tweeting how much they are "proud" of the singer.

Ocean begins his channel ORANGE tour July 13th later this week starting in Seattle, WA.

Janis Joplin Biopic Has a Star, Director, Rights to Use Music

by Devon Maloney

The indie flick gets a Tony Award-winning leading lady — and won't be about Janet Jopler

On the heels of buzz around Andre 3000's Jimi Hendrix biopic All Is By My Side comes news that the long-in-the-works Janis Joplin biopic has finally secured a director, a leading lady, and some serious publishing support.

According to Deadline, Joplin will be played by Tony-winning stage actress Nina Arianda, making her on-screen debut in a starring role; she won the Best Actress nod last month for her theatrical part in Venus in Fur, but has also played supporting parts in films like Woody Allen's Midnight In Paris (as Carol) and the surprisingly well-liked Tower Heist (as Miss Iovenko). Sean Durkin, the director whose first (and awfully good) major film Martha Marcy May Marlene essentially pwned Sundance earlier this year (he got a Dramatic Directing Award for it), will helm the new film, an accomplishment which he says took him and his collaborators 12 years "trying to put an indie film together."

It gets better — unlike the Hendrix doc, which can include Beatles covers but no actual Hendrix music, the Joplin picture will feature rights aplenty. Not only does the film, which has an extra-indie budget of $20 million and will be backed in part by the producers of Noah Baumbach's The Squid and the Whale, feature "exclusive use of 21 of Joplin's best-known songs," Arianda singing all of them; Durkin has also secured "the life rights and arrangements of [Joplin's] backing band, Big Brother and the Holding Company" as well as those for a collection of the singer's written letters, called Love, Janis, that was published in 2001, 31 years after her death, by her sister Laura Joplin. He's also wielding rights to Rolling Stone reporter David Dalton's Joplin heart wrenching biography Piece of My Heart, which he wrote after following her on tour over the six months that led up to her death. In other words, this film is packing a serious copyright punch in an age where that kind of thing is often quite hard to come by.

While those unfamiliar with the annals of Broadway might not be as psyched about Arianda's film debut as the wailing icon as they were about Stacks' casting, they may take comfort in the fact that this particular job won't be manned by Pink, Renee Zellweger, Amy Adams, or even Zooey Deschanel, as previously speculated (the latter will be a little busy with another icon sooner or later, anyway).

Chumbawamba split up after 30 years

Of course you'll remember Chumbawamba, the British band behind the 1997 hit "Tubthumping" and its memorable "I get knocked down, but I get up again" chorus. Sadly for the fans of the band, the group announced that it was calling it quits after 30 years together via a statement on their website, Punknews reports (via Stereogum).

"That's it then, it's the end," the post begins. "With neither a whimper, a bang or a reunion. Thirty years of ideas and melodies, endless meetings and European tours, press releases, singalong choruses and Dada sound poetry, finally at an end."

It's a pretty lengthy statement, and the gist of it is that the band no longer felt they could maintain their energy and creative output. Aside from their hit song, the band released over 15 albums, with singles such as "Amnesia" and "Top of the World (Olé, Olé, Olé)" having some success. They also admitted to dealing with some tension, but that isn't the catalyst for the split.

"There have been squabbles and arguments along the way. A deal of griping, frustration, moaning, exasperation –- but always alongside a huge amount of goodwill and generosity, good humour and love. What a riot it's been, frankly. And now it's time to clear up the mess and move on."

They'll be playing a few more shows before the end of the year, and said that it's not very likely they'll ever get back together. To read the full statement, click here.

Peter O'Toole retires

Peter O'Toole, legendary star of stage and screen, has announced his retirement from acting, just shy of his 80th birthday.

"It is time for me to chuck in the sponge. To retire from films and stage. The heart for it has gone out of me: it won’t come back," O'Toole wrote in a statement. "My professional acting life, stage and screen, has brought me public support, emotional fulfillment and material comfort. It has brought me together with fine people, good companions with whom I’ve shared the inevitable lot of all actors: flops and hits. However, it’s my belief that one should decide for oneself when it is time to end one’s stay. So I bid the profession a dry-eyed and profoundly grateful farewell."

O'Toole began his career on stage -- as the press release notes, at 27 he was called "the finest Hamlet of his generation" -- but shot to screen fame after being cast as the lead in David Lean's "Lawrence of Arabia." (According to Hollywood lore, O'Toole grabbed the role of T.E. Lawrence after Marlon Brando and Albert Finney declined.) His performance earned him the first of eight Academy Award nominations for Best Actor (he lost to Gregory Peck for "To Kill a Mockingbird" that year) and is still culturally relevant to this day. Ridley Scott used clips of O'Toole in "Lawrence of Arabia" in "Prometheus," as Michael Fassbender's android based his human persona on the actor -- up to and including his hair.

Following "Lawrence of Arabia," O'Toole went on to star in such classic films as "The Lion in the Winter," "Goodbye Mr. Chips," "Caligula," "Man of La Mancha," "My Favorite Year" and "The Last Emperor." Younger movie fans might know his less-serious work in "Club Paradise," "King Ralph" and "Troy." O'Toole also provided the voice of Anton Ego in Pixar's acclaimed film "Ratatouille."

Beyond his work on stage and screen, O'Toole is also famous for his proclivity to overindulgence in alcohol. That clouded his early career -- a profile by Gay Talese highlighted many of O'Toole's alcohol-related adventures -- and even led to his 1975 hospitalization for an "abdominal irregularity."

"It was a photo-finish, the surgeons said," O'Toole recalled. According to a report in The Daily Mail, O'Toole's health was at such a risk that even one drink could have killed him after the rupture.

"The time has come to stop roaming," he said at the time. "The pirate ship has berthed. I can still make whoopee, but now I do it sober."

O'Toole's eight Best Actor nominations make him the most-nominated actor to never win the award. He was last nominated for "Venus" in 2006. O'Toole won an honorary Oscar in 2003.


The Dark Knight Rises expected to soar past predecessor at box office

Hollywood pundits believe that Christopher Nolan's forthcoming final Batman film The Dark Knight Rises is on course to perform even more impressively than its blockbuster predecessor, The Dark Knight, at the box office.
"Tracking" figures for the new film – estimates based on research by studios into the viewing plans of cinemagoers – suggest it will eclipse the record-breaking $158.4m (£102m) opening of the 2008 movie. The Dark Knight went on to be the year's highest grossing film, a feat that its successor might be on course to repeat. Research suggests it is tracking just, but not far, behind 2012's most profitable film so far, The Avengers, which recently became the third highest grossing film of all time.

Jamie Oliver's Wife: I check his emails & phone to make sure he's not cheating

"I’ll check his email. I’ll check his Twitter. I’ll check his phone. "

They have been married for 12 years and he calls her the perfect wife and mother.

But despite her enviably solid relationship with her childhood sweetheart, it seems even Jools Oliver has the occasional moment of marital insecurity.

The wife of celebrity chef Jamie Oliver has confessed she regularly checks his phone and email accounts to make sure he is not being unfaithful.

‘Yeah, I’ll check his email. I’ll check his Twitter. I’ll check his phone. Everything seems fine,’ she said. ‘He says I’m a jealous girl, but I think I’m fairly laid-back, considering.’

Her confession comes as a particular surprise as she and Oliver have previously spoken about their absolute trust in each other.

In a 2008 interview, she said: ‘I am very secure. People say “Oh you can’t trust a man 100 per cent,” but I’m afraid I say I can.

‘They say every man will have an affair, but I really don’t think mine will.

‘Actually, I know he won’t.’

In More Vomit News: LittleMonsters.com Launches to the Public!

Paws up, little monsters! Lady Gaga's social network is now open to all.

Launched as an invite-only beta earlier this year, LittleMonsters.com is a fan site built by community creation platform Backplane, in which Lady Gaga is a major investor.

New users can set up a profile by opening a new account with the site or sign in with a Facebook or Twitter account, which will automatically update the biographical data and interests listed on the existing profile. Users can also invite friends from Facebook and Twitter to sign up for LitterMonsters.com.

The look and feel of Gaga's site are familiar, with a top nav bar similar to Google+, a Pinterest-like layout and Facebook-esque "Like" buttons peppered throughout the site for users to express their approval of posts and fellow Monsters. While users can "fan" profiles they like and acquire "fans" of their own, everyone who signs up is automatically made a "fan" of Lady Gaga, the way everyone who opened a MySpace account automatically was friends with Tom.

Jane Fonda: 'I'm having the best sex of my life'

Jane Fonda has been having the best sex of her life in the last few years.

The 74-year-old star - who has been married three times - says she and her partner Richard Perry, who she first met 40 years ago, have discovered 'true intimacy' and she is more confident than ever about her desires.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

She said: 'When I had my knee replaced just over two and a half years ago, I found a lover. His name is Richard Perry, he is 70 and he is a music producer.
'When I moved in with him I was still using crutches; we haven't been apart since.
'The only thing I have never known is true intimacy with a man. I absolutely wanted to discover that before dying. It has happened with Richard, I feel totally secure with him. Often, when we make love, I see him as he was 30 years ago.
'At 74, I have never had such a fulfilling sex life. When I was young I had so many inhibitions - I didn't know what I desired.'
Jane admits she often changed herself to please the men in her life, but blames her father Henry Fonda for her problems.
She told Britain's HELLO! magazine: 'I was always a courageous woman, capable of confronting governments, but not men. I was a chameleon, the woman men wanted me to be.
'I don't want to make a cheap analysis, but when you have, like I did, a father incapable of showing emotion, who spends his life telling you that one will love you if you aren't perfect, it leaves scars.'
Fonda has been married three times - to French director Roger Vadim, political activist Tom Hayden and CNN founder Ted Turner.

Sofia Vergara has more than just the big 4-0 to celebrate.

The Modern Family actress -- who is currently enjoying a birthday extravaganza at a Mexico resort alongside 90 loved ones -- is now engaged to her on-again love Nick Loeb, a source confirms to Us Weekly.

Wonderwall first broke the news of Vergara's happy news and pointed out that on Monday night, Vergara showed off a tell-tale diamond sparkler in a photo posted on her friend Fernando Fiore's Twitter.

The marriage will be the Three Stooges star's second; the actress wed Joe Gonzalez as a teen, with whom she has a son, 20-year-old Manolo. (She and Gonzalez divorced in 1993).

Vergara first met the politically active Loeb (who considered a 2010 run for Florida's state senate) at a Golden Globes party in 2010; the pair split ways after "fighting for a long time" in early May, though they reunited just a few weeks later.

"They have a crazy relationship," an insider explained of the duo's roller-coaster romance. "They break up and make up. They fight and make up hard!"

Not A Euphemism: Kim Pumps Kanye's Gas

Kim Kardashian seems like she’s a good girlfriend to Kanye. Or at least tries to be.

She not only spoiled her man with a $750,000 car for his birthday (according to reports) but she also makes sure he gets a good southern home cooked meal every now and again. Her past boyfriends, like Ray J, says that she treats her men like a King, making sure there is already toothpaste on the toothbrush when he wakes in the morning as well as a warm towel prepared so that he can wash his face. Clearly, a woman of her caliber should be treated like a queen too.

Earlier today, Kim was spotted with Kanye West on a shopping trip to Westfield Topanga Plaza. On the way there, they stopped at a gas station and Kim hopped out to fill up Yeezy’s rare Lamborghini Aventador LP 700-4 while Kanye sat his butt in the car. The photos parked a discussion between me and a few male friends on whether a woman should pump gas while on a date with her man. The majority (Thank God!), thinks chivalry is still alive and the man should always pump, even if the woman insists.

**shakes finger at Kanye** Maybe he doesn’t get down with gas pumping, especially with a gang of paparazzi standing nearby…

"It goes deeper than we've gone before," star Christopher Gorham tells Zap2it on a recent visit to the Toronto set, promising that an Annie-Auggie relationship will definitely be explored.

"All the emotional stuff is bigger. There's an urgency to this year that we didn't have as much last season. We kind of opened the door to the Annie and Auggie relationship at the end of Season 2, and so we're exploring that in a way that's very real for who those two people are," he says. "They both have very complicated lives, and the fact that Auggie's blind has allowed us to play with the relationship in a way that you can't do with any two other characters."

Gymnast Danell Leyva always aims very high because he considers it the best way to achieve his goals - and it apparently works, because he has just qualified for the U.S. team competing in the 2012 Olympic Games in London.

The Cuban-born Leyva decided at a very early age that he wanted to be a gymnast and did not let asthma, unusually long arms, flat feet or attention deficit disorder stop him.

Katie Holmes returns to Catholic church

Five years after revealing that she had started to study Scientology, Katie Holmes has officially returned to the Catholic faith, registering as a parishioner at the Church of St. Francis Xavier in New York City.

“Everyone is thrilled to have Katie join us,” a member of the church's choir told me. “She has not yet attended a service, but when she does she will be welcomed with open arms.”

The church, located on 16th Street between Fifth and Sixth Avenues, is known for inclusive thinking and its welcoming of many gay and lesbian Catholics. Its mission statement indicates that the Roman Catholic Church parish “strives to be a prophetic, welcoming community, inclusive witness to the presence of Christ Jesus in our midst.” Its website proclaims that it is a respectful community, “where seekers and their questions are welcomed, where injustice is challenged, where the poor, the alienated and marginalized find a home, and where people are refreshed, reconciled and renewed.”

Cruise and Holmes just issued a joint statement saying, "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."

The New York parish is no stranger to celebrity faces: Nancy Pelosi was seen worshipping there while serving as speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives

Sad News ONTD A Nickelback Concert Might Not Happen

Environment Canada is warning Nickelback fans to stay away from the stage during Saturday night's outdoor concert if there is thunder and lightning.

The Canadian rock band will be playing at the Magnetic Hill concert site on Saturday but the weather forecast is suggesting concertgoers may find themselves in a rain storm.

Claude Côté, a meteorologist, said the air is going to warm up Saturday afternoon and evening, the most likely moment for lightning to strike.

"This one is a little bit tricky and it's not black and white, it falls into this grey area. The air mass is unsettled and we're going to see showers and thunderstorms, but it's very difficult to say exactly where in southeast New Brunswick," said Côté.

Kanye West Makes His Debut on Keeping Up with the Kardashians

The inevitable has finally happened, folks. Kanye West made his first appearance on Keeping Up With The Kardashians as Kim Kardashian‘s boyfriend last night.

And just as we suspected, Kanye has been lending his fashionable eye to Kim since the very start. In the clip, she’s having some doubts about her choice of handbag. “Don’t you think this clutch is too busy for this?” she inquires.

“Nah, it’s cool. It’s alright,” replies Kanye. Ok, well fashion may break his heart, but luckily Kim seems to have the power to put it right back together again.

At the time this episode was filmed, the two were “just hanging out” according to Kim, however obviously their relationship has since blossomed to become the paparazzi magnet we all know (however reluctantly) as Kimye.

In rare 'raging because I was right' news: Look Who Got A Book Deal

NEW YORK (AP) — A new shade of grey? A sexy, self-published romance novel that has sold hundreds of thousands of copies has been acquired by an imprint of Simon & Schuster.

Atria Books announced Tuesday that it had signed up Jamie McGuire's "Beautiful Disaster," to be released immediately as an e-book. A paperback will follow in August.

The story of a young woman trying to choose between two men is currently No. 106 on Amazon.com's best-seller list and has received more than 1,000 customer reviews.

McGuire's literary agency, Valarie Hoskins Associates, also represents "Fifty Shades of Grey" author E.L. James.

"Walking Disaster," a sequel to "Beautiful Disaster," is scheduled to be published by Atria next year.


Basically posted so that certain people would rage with me. You know who you are. Actually, she probably hates me from when I said this had to be coming a few weeks ago. Ugh. Nice to know McGuire's method of getting people to hear about her works. And that we need more abusive relationships depicted as love stories out there. Atria, I'm so disappointed. I wonder how they're going to classify the book . . .

Also, can they PLEASE stop mentioning that fanfic in every book article now? It's beyond old.

Miley Got a New Tattoo + New Twitter Icon with Liam

Collapse )
the tattoo is a quote by Theodore Roosevelt:
"so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat"

It is part of this speech:
"It is not the critic who counts: not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error or shortcoming, but who knows the great enthusiasms, the great devotions, who spends himself for a worthy cause; who, at the best, knows, in the end, the triumph of high achievement, and who, at the worst, if he fails, at least he fails while daring greatly, so that his place shall never be with those cold and timid souls who knew neither victory nor defeat."

Divorce settlement with Tom Cruise is a clear win for Katie Holmes

Tom Cruise's former personal counselor in Scientology says the religion's leader, David Miscavige is the real problem behind the actor's troubled marriages.


For the last eight years of my service to corporate Scientology, while carrying out other executive duties, I also served as the personal counselor to Tom Cruise.

I participated in Scientology Inc. supreme leader David Miscavige’s meddling in Cruise’s first two marriages with Mimi Rogers and Nicole Kidman. (Miscavige is Cruise's best friend and was best man at his wedding to Katie Holmes in 2006.)

I know the players involved, and it’s clear to me that Cruise has capitulated this time around. That’s how I read the joint statement issued Monday by Cruise and Holmes. He’s not trying to have complete control of their 6-year-old daughter, Suri, and her upbringing, though that’s certainly what he wanted.

Underrated ICON Wynter Gordon Releases First EP

Wynter Gordon Review and EP for free!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

A good week and a half ago we announced that American singer songwriter Wynter Gordon would be self releasing four free EP’s throughout the rest of 2012 despite still being signed to current labelAtlantic/Big Beat. The ‘Dirty Talk’ singer, who has written for big stars like Jennifer Lopez, Mary J Blige and Estelle revealed the main reason for self-releasing these EP’s is a way of being creative and experimenting with different styles of music which are rather distant from her current dance direction.

Revealing those four EP’s under the collective ‘ Human Condition’ Wynter explains all four EP’s deal with a particular emotion people are familiar with; The first in line is ‘Doleo’, latin for pain, which consists of no less than 8 very different tracks:

One of those highlights is without a doubt the first single taken from the free EP, ‘Stimela’ which has been aired a few weeks ago.The track was inspired by Hugh Masekala’s anti-apartheid song of the same name and features a chorus sung in Zulu and African-pop production reminiscent of early-80s Genesis and solo Phil Collins.

‘Doleo’ in itself is a varied bundle of eight interesting, creative tracks where Wynter not only deals with the emotion of pain, but gives her listeners a way to overcome pain, and mesmerize everybody by coming up with an original style no one expected from her in the first place.

Wynter Gordon’s EP ‘Doleo’ can be downloaded below

'Game of Thrones' knight to guest on Syfy's 'Haven'

A Game of Thrones fan favorite will take a break from protecting his Khaleesi and step into the world of Syfy’s Haven.

Iain Glen (Downton Abbey; Ser Jorah on Thrones) will guest star on the supernatural drama as a man bent on vengeance after being trapped inside his house for 27 years (well, he shouldn’t have taken a job as a TV blogger then!).

The actor will appear in the sixth episode of the upcoming third season of Haven, which returns to Syfy on Friday, Sept. 21, at 10 p.m. Haven picks up immediately following the events of the season two finale with Audrey (Emily Rose) having been brutally kidnapped; Nathan (Lucas Bryant) warned against pursuing a romantic relationship with Audrey; and Duke (Eric Balfour) seemingly engaged in a fight to the death with Nathan after he discovers his family lineage is to kill troubled Haven citizens.

Why Won't Target Sell 'Channel Orange'?

More controversy surrounds the release of Frank Ocean's debut album Channel Orange as last night Frank Ocean released his album a week early exclusively on iTunes. This has upset Target enough to decide they won't sell the physical copy when it drops next Tuesday July 17th. Target is saying it will not carry the album because of the early release, but Christian Clancy who represents Frank Ocean and his Odd Future group mates is implying it is for another reason. Read the tweet above and I'm sure you can figure out the other reason, this all comes to light after the singer had released his coming out letter last week telling the world he had once loved another man. Not to beat a dead horse, but it shouldn't matter what someones sexuality is regarding whether you sell/listen to their music. This spells potential trouble for Target if true.

fuck target.

Octomom Sued By Strip Club

The woman known as "Octomom" is facing a lawsuit after backing out of a deal to strip at a Florida club.

T's Lounge in West Palm Beach has sued Nadya Suleman, who had agreed to dance topless in eight shows that were to begin Wednesday. The club is seeking an emergency injunction to keep her from appearing at a competing club.

Suleman has been summoned to appear in court, but no hearing has yet been set. It is unclear whether the matter will be resolved before she's set to take the stage at The Playhouse Gentleman's Club in Hollywood on Friday.

Phone and email messages left for Gina Rodriguez, a spokeswoman for Suleman, were not returned Tuesday.

The dispute began almost as soon as Suleman signed a contract June 3 to appear at T's Lounge in what was being billed as her "first feature dance appearance." Two days later, a representative for Suleman sent notice she was cancelling because she was angered by a television interview in which a club bartender called her "crazy."

"She will not be defamed by the club that was booking her, nor walk into a bad situation," the message said.

Suleman's contract says she must give 35 days' notice. The lawsuit says she only gave 34. The contract also bars Suleman from appearing at another strip club within 50 miles and 90 days of the scheduled appearances in West Palm Beach.

A copy of the contract is attached to the court filing, but the amount Suleman was to be paid has been removed.

T's Lounge is suing for an amount in excess of $15,000. It claims the exact damages stemming from Suleman's cancellation are "unascertainable" and that she caused "irreparable harm."

Meanwhile, ads cajoling men to "Come See Octomom Take it Off" have appeared in advance of her scheduled appearance Friday in nearby Broward County. Frank Cerabino, a columnist for The Palm Beach Post, has characterized it as "a fight between neighboring South Florida counties for the bragging rights -- or maybe it's sagging rights."

An attorney for Tease Lounge Inc., which operates T's, did not return a call seeking comment.

Suleman, who lives in La Habra, California, is the mother of 14 children including octuplets born in 2009. She has struggled financially, recently declaring bankruptcy.

She previously sold photos of herself and her children to tabloids. She recently appeared in a topless spread in a British magazine.

Dear Louis C.K., This Is Disappointing

Louis C.K. apparently decided that, after Daniel Tosh has been the subject of harsh criticism for saying it would be funny if a feminist heckler got gang raped at his show, Tosh is in need of his support. “Your show makes me laugh every time I watch it,” he tweeted. “And you have pretty eyes.” Given C.K.’s long record of comedy that’s self-reflective about privilege and smart about gender—though I do think he’s fallen down both comedically and politically in his attacks on Sarah Palin, and his episode of Louie where he goes after a heckler played by Megan Hilty can be jarring—this is particularly disappointing. Given the reaction I, and other folks, have gotten from comedians today, and a rash of unfortunate attempts at humor that have devolved into bashing women, I kind of think women who care about comedy need C.K.’s championing them more than Daniel Tosh does. And I’m feeling less disappointed by not pulling the trigger on tickets to see him live on this tour.
