Assassin's Creed Movie Coming 2013?



This summer we told you that Michael Fassbender was set to star and co-produce in the Assassian's Creed movie adaptation and today we have a bit more insight in what we can expect from the film in the next year or so. Ubisoft's chief sales and marketing officer, Geoffroy Sardin, sat down with GamesIndustry.biz to talk about the future of the brand, and included a statement that leads us to believe we might see some Assassins Creed action next year, which is a lot sooner than we thought!

In that interview, Sardin said quote "Another thing that is very important for the lifecycle is the transmedia offer. All the figurines, the books, the publishing, and we have a movie in the next coming year. So it's not only about games, we are talking about a global brand"

Now, we doubt that he means that we will see a movie in the next year, but we can speculate that he might mean the start of production. Looking at the timeline, perhaps filming would begin in the fall, seeing as Fassbender is going to have his hands full in X-Men: Days of Future Past, which starts filming in April of 2013.

Assassins Creed 3 was released October 30th and brought in around 3.5 million during it's first week, which essentially doubled Assassin's Creed:Revelations sales, so we can assume that more and more of you are becoming fans of the game, and perhaps will help us weigh in on the movie!

I just finished Assassin's Creed 3 recently and I have so many feelings! But for now can we agree that Haytham is simply flawless? (and oh yeah, I guess you can talk about the movie too if you want)

Commenting on his role as a cultural ambassador, he said: "This is a tremendous invitation. I'm very thankful to the Department of State for giving me the opportunity to visit a place I've never been before. I feel very privileged and humbled by the chance to represent the United States of America and show the good people of Bahrain the power of positive partying. I can hardly wait for this adventure!"

Justin Bieber Booed During Grey Cup Performance



TORONTO — Justin Bieber faced a hostile homecoming at the 100th Grey Cup on Sunday, with the jeering capacity crowd at the raucous Rogers Centre providing the teen idol with a reception as unyieldingly cold as a long Canadian winter.

The 18-year-old grew up roughly 150 kilometres down the road in Stratford, Ont., but that didn’t help his cause with the rowdy crowd on hand, who took aim at the ubiquitous pop star whenever possible.

They booed when his face popped up on the JumboTron. They booed when a host spoke his name at the onset of halftime. And they booed with extra glee as he took the stage and throughout his medley of the finger-snapping, chart-topping hit “Boyfriend” and the disco-inflected club come-on “Beauty and a Beat.”

beyonce announces HBO documentary for 2013


BEYONCÉ IN AN INTIMATE, REVEALING DOCUMENTARY

FILM DEBUTING FEB. 16, 2013, EXCLUSIVELY ON HBO

LOS ANGELES, Nov. 26, 2012 – Multiple Grammy winner, entrepreneur and actress Beyoncé will be the focus of an intimate feature-length HBO documentary film debuting Feb. 16, 2013, it was announced today by Michael Lombardo, president, HBO Programming. Directed by the superstar, the film is a fusion of video that provides raw, unprecedented access to the private entertainment icon and high-voltage performances.

“Everybody knows Beyoncé’s music, but few know Beyoncé the person,” said Lombardo. “Along with electrifying footage of Beyoncé onstage, this unique special looks beyond the glamour to reveal a vibrant, vulnerable, unforgettable woman.”

“HBO has a history of pushing every boundary with class and authenticity,” said Beyoncé. “Some of my favorite shows are on HBO, so I am excited that my film will be part of its bold programming. This film was so personal to me, it had to have the right home.”

The film is a multi-faceted portrait of the 16-time Grammy Award-winning singer, businesswoman, songwriter, actress, entrepreneur, wife and mother, showing off the extraordinary gifts that have made her a global phenomenon, and stripping away the veneer of stardom. It includes extensive first-person footage, some of it shot by Beyoncé on her laptop, in which she reflects on the realities of celebrity, the refuge she finds onstage and the transcendent joy of becoming a mother last year.

The film sheds light on her childhood in Houston, with home movies revealing the close bond she built with her family and charts the challenges Beyoncé felt when she decided to manage her career and build her own company, Parkwood Entertainment. It also captures the intense physical and emotional demands she goes through in the studio, preparing for live performances, running a business and her family life, including her return to the spotlight after the birth of her daughter, Blue Ivy Carter, in January 2012.

Beyoncé also serves as the film’s executive producer.

"Two And A Half" Star Finds God, And Throws Shade At The Show

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
"Two and a Half Men" might have another full problem on its hands.

No indication has been given whether or not the tenth, and current season of the series (its second under Ashton Kutcher) will indeed be the series last, but it seems unlikely the series could survive the latest controversy.

A new video has made its way to the web through Reddit, in which "Two and a Half Men" star Angus T. Jones rants about his new-found religion to website “Forerunner Chronicles,” and urges people not to watch the long-running CBS series.

The videos don’t appear to be a hoax, and feature Jones praising his spiritual adviser, who expresses his belief in apparent hip-hop conspiracies, before circling around to "Two and a Half Men" itself:

If you watch ‘Two and a Half Men,’ please stop watching ‘Two and a Half Men.’ I’m on ‘Two and a Half Men,’ and I don’t want to be on it. Please stop watching it, and filling your head with filth. People say it’s just entertainment. Do some research on the effects of television and your brain, and I promise you you’ll have a decision to make when it comes to television, especially with what you watch.

It’s bad news…a lot of people don’t like to think about how deceptive the enemy is. He’s been doing this a long longer than any of us have been around. There’s no playing around when it comes to eternity.


Neither CBS nor Jones’ ‘Men’ co-stars have offered any kind of response to the videos, and Jones doesn’t specify his plans to leave the series, but we’ll keep an eye on the story as it develops. You’ve been warned, but you can check out Angus T. Jones’ video proclamations below.

"Sherlock" Season 3 Production Delayed

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Expecting the return of Sherlock next summer?

Try late 2013. Perhaps even 2014, depending where you live.

Start of production on the third cycle of the fan-adored detective drama has been moved from January to March. Sources say the shift was necessary to accommodate the busy schedules of the show’s breakout stars, Benedict Cumberbatch (who’s filming Star Trek 2) and Martin Freeman (starring in The Hobbit).

The BBC has not announced a premiere date for season three, but given that January was previously announced as the start of production, fans hoped to see Holmes and Watson return in the summer. Sources say the BBC will air Sherlock series three in late 2013. PBS has to wait until after the BBC’s window. A PBS spokesperson says Sherlock will air either late 2013 — or early 2014.

The first cycle of Sherlock debuted in the UK in July, 2010. The eagerly anticipated second season premiered last January, with PBS debuting the three 90-minute episodes in May. With its second season cliffhanger and increasing critical acclaim and worldwide buzz, anticipation for the next cycle of Sherlock is stronger than ever. From the BBC’s perspective, however, nothing about its schedule has really changed. Though production is starting slightly later than originally hoped, the company has only previously said the show will run sometime next year and recently hinted that a fall debut is likely. But for fans, particularly U.S. fans wanting more Sherlock as soon as possible, well, Holmes would advise patience.

Yoko Ono's Designing A Menswear Line Inspired By John Lennon

hotbod

Japanese artist Yoko Ono has collaborated with Opening Ceremony to design a menswear collection inspired by her late husband, John Lennon.

A collection of drawings created as a wedding present for Beatles singer John Lennon in 1969 entitled “Fashions for Men” has inspired Yoko Ono’s quirky foray into menswear design.

Concept store Opening Ceremony, which recently launched in London’s Covent Garden, will stock the 18-piece collection of from November 30. Highlights include suit trousers with a hand silhouette sewn over the crotch (approx £210), a jumper with eyelets cut out around the nipples and a battery-operated lightbulb bra which can be worn underneath said top (£160).

Liverpool-born Lennon and Ono collaborated together on an album just weeks before he was assassinated in 1980. “I was inspired to create ‘Fashions for Men’ amazed at how my man was looking so great. I felt it was a pity if we could not make clothes emphasizing his very sexy bod,” Yoko told WWD .

She rather un-modestly continues: “So, I made this whole series with love for his hot bod and gave it to him as a wedding present. You can imagine how he went wild and fell in love with me even more.”

Each piece from the collection, which also includes hoodies (around £50) and two styles of boots has a run of just 52 items. A softcover book comprised of Ono’s drawings accompanies the collection, as well as sweatshirts and posters decorated with her sketches.

“We loved the idea of sort of celebrating the holidays with Yoko with this collection” said Opening Ceremony co-founder Carol Lim, while fellow founder Humberto Leon explained: “I think she just fell in love with John’s body and wanted to show off all of the parts of his body that she loved. There’s something so beautiful about that sentiment. And we’ve realized these designs in pretty actual terms of how she drew them.”

Chris Brown Deletes His Twitter Account



Following a dramatic e-fight with Jenny Johnson, Chris has deactivated his account.


After getting into a rather intense Twitter battle earlier tonight, Chris Brown has deleted his account. One of the last tweets the singer sent out before deleting his page was "Just ask Rihanna if she mad??????"

Earlier today Chris Brown posted a series of vulgar tweets attacking comedienne Jenny Johnson (@JennyJohnsonHi5), a long-time critic who dared to mock the girl-beater celebrity.

Chris Brown is really bad at public relations. The 23-year-old rapper went on a memorably vulgar tirade and apparently realized soon thereafter that it was a bad idea, because he scrambled to cover his tracks. But deleting tweets does not erase their previous existence and deactivating your Twitter account does not take away all of the bad things you did with it.

Then things got ugly. In a series of tweets, Brown told Johnson to suck his dick, threatened to fart on her, threatened to shit and called her a "bitch" and a "ho" about seven times. After tweeting -- and this is a direct quote -- "mom says hello... She told me not to shart in ur mouth, wanted me to shit right on the retina, ....#pinkeye" Brown tweeted, "Just ask Rihanna if she mad??????"

Capcom Says There's More 'Mega Man' On The Way



Fans have lately been worried Capcom wouldn't be revisiting the Mega Man franchise. Thankfully, during a recent interview, Capcom laid those fears to rest, stating Mega Man is returning to our gaming machines.

Speaking with Nintendo Power, Capcom USA senior VP Christian Svensson revealed that we'll actually be seeing quite a bit of Mega Man in the future, not only on handhelds, but also on our major consoles.

"I can say with certainty that you’ve not seen the last of the Blue Bomber on consoles and handhelds, and, with luck, we’ll be celebrating his 50th anniversary, including all of the games you’re going to enjoy over the next 25 years,” said Svensson. “That said, an issue we’ve had in the past has been talking about games and announcing them before we’re certain they’re going to come out, which unfortunately has lead to profound disappointment for many fans. So for now, I’m going to have to stay mum about any details."

The Blue Bomber turns 25 this year, with festivities kicking off in the US sometime in December. However, Capcom USA and Capcom Japan will be holding separate celebrations in honor of the beloved character's birthday.

Dannielynn Birkhead Models for GUESS Kids



Dannielynn Birkhead is following in her mom's famous footsteps.

Anna Nicole Smith and Larry Birkhead's 6-year-old daughter is the new face of GUESS kids -- posing for the clothing line 20 years after her late mother.

GUESS released two photos of little Dannielynn from the Spring 2013 campaign, which was shot in Malibu by Elliston Lutz and directed by the brand's Creative Director, Paul Marciano.

"Dannielynn has the same playful spirit that her mother had on a set," says Marciano. "She is a second-generation GUESS girl, which makes this campaign a first for us."

Anna Nicole famously replaced Claudia Schiffer as the face of GUESS back in 1992, posing for some iconic photos reportedly inspired by Janye Mansfield.

The new shots are a rare look at Dannielynn, who really isn't seen in public aside from her annual appearances at the Kentucky Derby.

Halle Berry, Gabriel Aubry Daughter, Nahla, Subject Of Children's Services Investigation



Following a Thanksgiving day brawl the Los Angeles County Department of Family and Children Services will be formally re-opening an abuse investigation involving Halle Berry and Gabriel Aubry's 4-year-old daughter, Nahla, reports RadarOnline.

Aubry and Berry's fiance, Olivier Martinez, both ended up in the hospital after they got in a fight on Nov. 22. Aubry was arrested and is now facing battery and misdemeanor charges. Because Nahla was present during the fight, police formally contacted DCFS after Aubry was arrested, a source told the website.

"Nahla wasn't actually involved in the melee, and by all accounts, Halle whisked her out of the driveway as soon as the fight between Olivier and Gabe started. However, DCFS was contacted because there has been a history of allegations of physical abuse. Social workers will be interviewing Halle, Gabriel and Olivier about what happened on Thanksgiving. DCFS must ensure that Nahla's environment is safe," the source explained to RadarOnline.

In January, Aubry was investigated for criminal child endangerment and battery allegations, after the nanny he employed to care for Nahla claimed that he pushed her into a door while she held his daughter in her arms. The case was later dropped upon the recommendation of DCFS, which ultimately found no evidence that Nahla was in any danger.

Berry and Aubry have been battling for custody of their daughter for months and the actress' request to be allowed to move to France with her daughter was recently rejected by a judge, but the fight between Aubry and Martinez could impact future custody decisions.

On Sunday, TMZ reported that though a judge issued an emergency order of protection -- requiring Aubry to stay 100 yards away from Berry, Nahla and Martinez -- Berry is seeking a another restraining order against Aubry, as the emergency order expires on Tuesday.

TMZ has learned that her lawyers are heading to court early this week to make sure the temporary order of protection becomes more permanent. Sources tell the site, Berry's argument is simple: "If Gabriel can't control himself enough to protect Nahla from emotional trauma, it's too risky for him to be around her, Berry or Martinez."

Mykki Blanco's Mutant Radio Rap Kills 'Queer Rap' Dead

'Cosmic Angel: Illuminati Prince/ss' is the best bugged-out rap tape since Lil Wayne's 'Da Drought 3'




Can we Wiki together a timeline that breaks down just how much hip-hop culture is derived from, or at the very least, was heavily influenced by gay culture? How Tupac Shakur grew up in house music-obsessed Baltimore (hometown of queer-cinema godfather John Waters and transgender DJ/vocalist Miss Tony), attended a performing arts high school, sported the most perfectly plucked eyebrows on a man ever, and rocked a banjee realness style? How Lil Wayne, from New Orleans, home of bounce — raucous dance music that has no need for heteronormative values — looks like a working-class drag king? How there is simply no way that the early days of hip-hop, in conversation with disco and punk, and enacting constant cultural exchange between uptown and downtown, does not bear the influence of the city's gay-affirmative history? Perhaps if any of these angles were allowed to bubble up to the surface, the tone of recent gay-rapper thinkpieces would be less "woah isn't this like, so weird?!" and more like "fucking finally, dude."

The 11 Game of Thrones characters least likely to win the Iron Throne



I've noticed a great many "power rankings" online for A Song of Ice and Fire. I don't know if it's because George R.R. Martin loves football, where such things are common, but plenty of people have tried to guess who is most likely to end up "winning" the game of thrones by the end of the series by how much power they wield. But that ignores a huge host of characters who will never "win" - in fact, most of them will be lucky just to be alive by the end of the next book, The Winds of Winter. Why shouldn't they get their due? So behold, the first ever ASoIaF Powerless Rankings!

A few things to note: Characters have to be alive to make it onto the Powerless Rankings, and they also have to have appeared in more than a single book. Characters also have to be memorable enough that I remember who they are, so the list doesn't fill up with nth-tier Freys and random peasants. Oh, and last but not least, SPOILER WARNING FOR ALL FIVE BOOKS.

Little Mix Talk 'DNA', Gaining Respect And Why 'Being A Girl Is Hard'

"There's a lot of focus on our image rather than our music. Being a girl is hard," says feisty Little Mix star Perrie Edwards.

"If we want to wear a jumper and it says something weird on it and everyone says 'what are they wearing', we don't really give a crap," adds Leigh-Anne Pinnock.

Little Mix became the first group ever to win the 'X Factor' last year, a feat that even JLS and One Direction didn't manage. Now - almost twelve months later - their debut album 'DNA' has hit the shelves and they're eager to be taken seriously...

Geordie singer Perrie explains: "We’re not worried about being “cute”, but we have evolved a bit. We still like dressing how we did on the show but we have grown up a lot. When we auditioned for the show, some of us were 17 so we're obviously not going to wear the same thing."

The girls' latest music video for their current single 'DNA' (the title track from their album) sees them take on a vixen look in dark leathers, red lips and plenty of studs.

It's a far cry from their bubblegum pop video for 'Wings', their number one single which sold over 107,000 copies in its first week. But Jade Thirlwall insists: "Really, we think our music shows how much we've grown up rather than the way we look.

"When we brought out 'Wings', that was about having fun and all about just being girls and being who you are. And then 'DNA' comes out and it's more about a darker side of us, but we also did 'ET' on the 'X Factor' and that was quite dark and that was the week we got the most votes."

Perrie adds: "Our image is going to be commented on a lot at the minute because we've only got two songs out, but once the album comes out people will know our music more and hopefully respect us more as music artists. It's just a matter of time really."

Oops nevermind: Andrew W.K.'s Middle-East trip canceled

A State Department spokesperson has announced that singer-songwriter, entrepeneur, and all-around embodiment of sprezzatura Andrew W.K. will not represent the United States as a cultural ambassador to Bahrain.


Spokesperson Noel Clay said the planned trip was "a mistake and not appropriate." The Department has rescinded the invitation.


A.W.K., born Andrew Wilkes-Krier, was reportedly invited by the State Department to visit the Islamic kingdom to act as an example of "American culture and spirit." 


Critics trashed the move as a frivolous use of public funds. Other have said the expedition legitimizes Bahrain's government, which is accused of violently suppressing demonstrations against the prison sentences of activists convicted of plotting to overthrow the monarchy. The rocker's message has always centered on peace and self-determination among individuals.


Wilkes-Krier took to Twitter to respond to the news. He revealed the government had been planning the trip with him for a year, and his invitation was rescinded because he is "too party." He concluded:

Once Again OUAT's Ratings Are Up Thanks to Hook

'Once Upon a Time' ratings bounce back, but not...


Returning after a short break, Once Upon a Time perked back up in the ratings Sunday night, but the same cannot be said for fellow ABC dramas Revenge and 666 Park Avenue.

Once Upon bounced 11 percent since its last airing two weeks ago to deliver 8.8 million viewers and a 3.0 rating among adults 18-49 last night, which makes the show the evening’s highest-rated drama. But Revenge slipped 12 percent to a season low despite its lead-in rising, and dead-drama-walking 666 was steady.

CBS’ lineup, tentative due to some sports overrun, was largely unchanged, except for The Mentalist perking up 29 percent from last week’s low number (when it aired around 11 p.m. thanks to football). Fox’s comedies got some boost from some NFL overrun early in the evening– particularly The Simpsons which for got to beat out usual winner Family Guy for the lineup’s top spot. Obviously NBC won the night with Sunday Night Football, but those Green Bay vs. N.Y. Giants ratings are very preliminary since morning ratings for live telecasts aren’t yet time-zone-adjusted by Nielsen.

Idris Elba Will Be Romanced By Sienna Guillory In Season 3 Of 'Luther' + Returning Cast + Guest Star

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Some may prefer that Luther be romanced by Alice (played wonderfully by actress Ruth Wilson) - those who've grown to love Alice and her deliciously maniacal ways, almost as Idris' Moriarity, we could say; alas, it won't be that kind of likely dysfunctional relationship.

Instead, Luther (Idris Elba) will be take by a character played by Sienna Guillory (Resident Evil) in the hit series upcoming third season/series, which, as we've already noted, will comprise of 4 hour-long episodes, which began shooting last week, to the excitement of many.

In season 3, Luther finds himself under a lot of pressure, as he struggles to solve two conflicting crimes, while simultaneously fending off a ruthless ex-cop who's determined to bring him down by any means necessary.


Sienna Guillory's character will be called Mary, and she's described by the BBC as... "a worker in a vintage clothing shop, who meets Luther by chance." What happens from there, we'll have to wait to find out.

Also revealed are that Warren Brown, Nikki Amuka-Bird, Dermot Crowley and Michael Smiley will return to assume the roles they each played last season.

And next seasons guest stars will include Lucian Msamati (Game Of Thrones fans will remember him as the pirate Salladhor Saan; he and Nonso Anozie were the 2 black Brits who joined the series cast last season), and Ned Dennehy (Tyrannosaur).

No date announced yet on when Luther, season 3 will debut, in the UK or the USA; but I expect it'll be sometime in 2013; and maybe even simultaneously this time - meaning, those in the USA won't have to wait months after it airs in the UK, to see it in the USA.

Steven Spielberg Wanted to Direct James Bond Film



"Skyfall" was released earlier this month and has already grossed $708 million globally, making it the highest-grossing James Bond film ever and on track to possibly break the $1 billion mark.

While promoting "Lincoln," Steven Spielberg was asked whether he would be interested in ever directing a James Bond installments. The director replied: "I went to producer [Cubby Broccoli] and I asked if I could do [a James Bond film] and he said, 'No.' I've never asked again. Instead, I made the 'Indiana Jones' series."

He was then asked if he had the chance to see "Skyfall." "I've seen it once and I'll see it a second time," he said.

SOA: Watch Ryan Hurst [Spoiler for 5.03]bid farewell to Opie
-- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO-- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO



Death can make for great drama on a series like FX’s Sons of Anarchy—but it can also break a lot of hearts. Such was the case on Sept. 25 when SAMCRO member Harry “Opie” Winston (Ryan Hurst) was fatally beaten in retaliation for the death of a rival’s daughter. Hurst first learned about his character’s fate in April, when he received a call from creator/executive producer Kurt Sutter while he was (strangely enough) hosting a wake for a friend.

“I couldn’t stop crying. I tried to talk him out of it,” recalls Hurst, who played Horatio to Jax’s Hamlet since the drama’s pilot. “I went through Elisabeth Kubler-Ross’ stages of grief. He wasn’t sure of the particulars yet, just that it was gonna be bloody and gonna be noble… I didn’t see the way that it served the story. But then again, it’s not necessarily my position to comment on that. It’s Kurt’s show that he created, and whether it’s the right decision or the wrong decision, remains to be seen.”

Nicki Minaj Fires Back at Steven Tyler for ‘American Idol’ Remarks

steven-nicki


Nicki Minaj is not one to hold her tongue. The Young Money rapper is firing back at former “American Idol” judge Steven Tyler after he slammed her and the new “Idol” judges.

“If it was Bob Dylan, Nicki Minaj would have had him sent to the cornfield!” the Aerosmith frontman told MTV News. “Whereas, if it was Bob Dylan with us, we would have brought the best of him out, as we did with ['Idol' contestant] Phillip Phillips.”

Tyler, who was an “Idol” judge alongside Jennifer Lopez and Randy Jackson, further criticized the new judging panel, which includes Nicki, Mariah Carey, Keith Urban, and Jackson. “They should have something going on, which is called ‘camaraderie.’ They should have something going on so thick and beautiful that they can lay it over the new talent that’s trying to birth itself. It needs to be birthed, not judged by ‘entertainment’ factors, it needs to be judged by people that [are] honest, true, that have the ‘it’ factor. Not the ‘it’ factor because they can fight,” he said, referring to Nicki’s infamous feud with Mariah.

Taylor Swift on holiday season: 'This is my favorite time of year'

taylor-swift-red-target-gi

Taylor Swift has said that the holiday season is her favorite time of year. The 'We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together' singer revealed to Parade that she often gets carried away with festive glee.

"I really love the holiday season because I grew up on a Christmas tree farm, and it just reminds me of home and the coziness of it all," Swift explained.

She went on to say: "I love when it gets cold and you start wearing sweaters and coats and scarves, and you start baking things with cinnamon and nutmeg in them. To me those are the smells of Christmas."


Swift also revealed that her signature specialty in the kitchen is actually homemade jam.

"I make raspberry jam. When I was younger we had a grape arbor, and my mom would go out and pick grapes and make grape jam in the sink - boil it, put it in jars, and give it away as gifts," the country music star commented. "So I started making raspberry jam, and it is so good. You can put it on anything; you can dip pretzels into it. I don't mean to brag, but it's so good you could just eat it with a spoon."

Swift recently admitted that she often falls in love too quickly, especially when she meets a "bad boy".

"I think every girl's dream is to find a bad boy at the right time, when he wants to not be bad anymore," she explained.

Princess Ke$ha wants to change sexism in pop


Kesha has revealed one of the main motivations in her music is to change the ''playing field'' for women in the industry.

Ke$ha's goal with her music is to end sexism in pop.

The 25-year-old singer found worldwide fame with her single 'Tik Tok' - which was criticised for promoting drinking and promiscuity - and she doesn't think it's fair that men are allowed to sing about getting drunk and women aren't.

She said: ''If men can talk about drinking in every awesome rock 'n' roll song and every awesome rap song, why can't a woman? Just because I drink doesn't mean I'm a drunk. Just because I have sex, and I'm not embarrassed doesn't mean I'm a whore.

''If men can do it, why can't a woman do it? I really feel one of my main reasons for being on this earth is to level out the playing field just a little bit.''

The 'Die Young' hitmaker - who is just about to release her second album 'Warrior' - considers herself a feminist and insists she is determined to push the boundaries of what women can do.

When asked if she's a feminist, she told the Financial Times Weekend magazine: ''In some ways. In the ways that I feel I can do the same things men can do, and be just as rock 'n' roll and bad ass and not feel shameful or be shamed for it.''

Nepotists to Trump: Cool It On the Obama Hate

Donald Trump’s kids advised the billionaire to back off on Obama-bashing, say insiders.

Donald Trump’s hatred of Barack Obama allegedly led his three eldest kids to do an Obama-vention before the election. Eric, Donald Jr. and Ivanka discussed telling their dad to calm down, then decided collectively to approach Trump (below) and ask him to turn it down a notch with the presidential bashing.

“The three of them met and went to see their dad in his Fifth Ave. office. They showed a lot of respect, but told him he’s worked too long and too hard to build up the reputation he has. They understand completely he’s always been outspoken and that he likes attention, but this is too much,” says a source who knew about the mid-October meeting.

Trump’s rep denies any such meeting ever took place.

What began with Trump’s public ­demand for Obama’s birth certificate during earlier stages of the election cycle has grown into a one-man war against the President, with The Donald blasting Obama’s reelection as a “disgusting ­injustice” on Twitter.

“The world is laughing at us,” the billionaire tweeted. The explosive Twitter missive, like many of his other micro-rants, is difficult to find, because Trump later deletes many of his tirades — once he’s let off steam.

Prior to Obama’s win, Trump also demanded Obama release his college records and passport application in return for a $5 million donation to the charity of his choice.

Once in a while, though, Trump does shift his ­vitriol, like on Nov. 13, when he tweeted at Cher: “I don’t wear a ‘rug’ — it’s mine. And I promise not to talk about your massive plastic surgeries that didn’t work.”

Or his words for the stars of “Twilight” following Kristen Stewart’s affair with director Rupert Sands.

“I hope Robert Pattinson will not be seen in public with Kristen — she will cheat on him again!” he tweeted.

As for Obama as a target, the “kids said they know it’s not helping,” says the source. “They told him you can’t throw this all away on this nonsense.”

Since the kids are the future of Trump’s empire, the insider adds, they are also worried for themselves.

“They want their dad to get respect and then the whole family does well,” the source says.

Trump’s rep called the story “completely untrue,” telling us that Eric, Donald Jr. and Ivanka love his use of “free speech” and would never try to rein in their father.

“They would never ever do that. It never happened. It’s simply untrue,” the rep stressed.

Chris Browns never changing antics + List of people verbally abused by him

Chris-Brown_620_1627017a

It was brought to my attention that yesterday Chris Brown being the total piece of artistic shit he is, decided to attack Jenny Johnson after she pointed out what a disgusting human he is. Brown retaliated by posting misogynistic hate filled messages that would later escalate to him deleting his account. Jenny stated that she is utterly disgusted that this cretin has not shown remorse for what he did, as proven by his violent misogynist twitter posts, which brings us to the question "Why is it wrong to criticize a violent woman beater like Brown? Why does society constantly shield violent people like him?"

Jude Law's new beard


British actor Jude Law is reportedly dating the wardrobe assistant from his new movie Dom Hemingway, according to inside sources.  MSN is reporting that Law started seeing the assistant, Ellen Crawshaw, since they began working on the film together in October.


“Jude and Ellen’s romance is the talk of the set. It started last month when we were filming in France. There was an instant connection and they’d been flirting but it didn’t turn physical until the night we all went out for a cast and crew party just outside St Tropez. Since then they have been inseparable. They are making no attempt to hide their feelings for each other and both of them look so happy. They clearly get on fantastically well. He’s single and so is she, so there’s nothing to hide. They are just two people in love having a great time together.”A source told Britain’s Mail:

Law has struggled with rumors that he is a serious womanizer.  The Inquisitr reporter Niki Cruz reported that Law was on and off with actress Sienna Miller after splitting from his longtime wife Sadie Frost but is widely seen as not being able to be satisfied with one woman.  Law said in response:

“I’ve been in committed long-term relationships most of my life and I’m a faithful soul. That’s why terms like ‘womanizer’ and ‘sex symbol’ don’t really apply to me. It just goes to show that people don’t understand me at all. “I’m someone who loves to give. I’m very sociable. Respect for others is very important to me. My father often told me: ‘Be aware that there’s people around you who are better than you and people who are worse than you.’ I think that’s a good rule to live by.”
