STOP THE PRESS - Girls Aloud [also] rumoured for Eurovision 2013



The UK’s national free newspaper, Metro, today hinted that top popstars Girls Aloud have Eurovision 2013 in their sights. Journalist Neil Sean doesn’t go on to give any more details. Would such a big name act consider representing the UK? Could it be their breakthrough into Europe? Last year’s similar rumours of all-girl pop group Atomic Kitten never materialised as the UK sent Englebert Humperdinck instead.

Girls Aloud are an English-Irishpop girl group based in London. They were created through the ITV1 talent show Popstars: The Rivals in 2002. The group consists of Cheryl Cole (née Tweedy), Nadine Coyle, Sarah Harding, Nicola Roberts and Kimberley Walsh. They are signed to Fascination Records. The group have had 22 consecutive top 11 singles in the United Kingdom, including 4 number ones. All five girls have undertaken solo careers, with Cheryl being the most successful as an XFactor judge and her solo music career. The group was also named the UK’s biggest selling girl group of the 21st century.

Frank Ocean Reveals His Alleged New Boyfriend!

Frank Ocean has had a breakthrough year in 2012 when it comes to his music, but he also made history ever since he spoke openly about his bisexuality. Revealing himself to be one of the first to open up about falling in love with another man in hip-hop, the Channel Orange singer became the talk of the town. And it looks like Frank could have fallen in love again, since he's been hanging out often with a guy named Willy Cartier.

Frank recently posted some Instagram pictures of the two hanging out together doing some meditation. He also added a photo of him sitting across the table from a guy while grabbing a bite to eat.

Although Frank doesn't try to make it too obvious that Willy is the man on the other end of the table, it's a good chance that it's him, since Frank also took Willy to the GQ Magazine red carpet recently.

Doctor Who: BBC confirms 50th anniversary special

BBC One's 2013 commissioning announcement confirms "the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special"...



Speculation about next year's Doctor Who 50th anniversary special isn't just rife, it's practically an Olympic event. Will past Doctors return? (Almost certainly). Will there be more than one special? (Two is the current front-running suggestion). Will it be a live episode? (Er, we hope not).

We do know that the Mark Gatiss-scripted Who docudrama, a dramatisation of the show's birth on the BBC, has been officially confirmed, and now in BBC One Controller Danny Cohen's 2013 commissioning statement comes reference to a single "Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special".

"Drama on BBC One takes another big leap in 2013 in the shape of some major event dramas, including The Village, Ripper Street, Luther, The White Queen and the Doctor Who 50th Anniversary Special. These shows will bring a rich range of tones and worlds to BBC One's fiction."

We'll bring you more on Doctor Who's 50th anniversary plans as soon as we have it.

Van Morrison's Love Life Heads To Court

van_226_1134319a

Van Morrison and Michelle Rocca could end up facing each other in the High Court – in a case that has captivated attention around the globe.

The dramatic development centres on a legal action which is being brought to Dublin's Four Courts by PR heavyweight John Saunders.
Saunders, regional president for Europe, Middle East and Africa at public relations giant Fleishman-Hillard, has initiated proceedings against Morrison claiming damages for misrepresentation, negligence, breach of duty and breach of contract.

The Sunday Independent has learned that Rocca may be called to testify as a witness against the famously reclusive singer.
If so she is likely to be asked to give evidence regarding her account of what actually happened on the key days following Christmas 2009 when a mysterious message was posted on the official Van Morrison website and the world first learned that the singer had fathered a love child.

The message stated that the singer, who was married to Michelle Rocca at the time, had fathered a baby boy with a Texan music producer named Gigi Lee.
The statement read: "Gigi and Van Morrison are proud to announce the birth of their first son, George Ivan Morrison III. 'Little Van', born December 28, 2009 – the spitting image of his daddy."

The message was quickly removed from the website and the singer branded it a hoax.

As a source close to Rocca explained: "Michelle and John Saunders have been friends for many, many years. And John knew Morrison through Michelle.
"When the news broke that Van had fathered a love child John subsequently went live on radio to defend Michelle's husband against the allegations.
"John said that the posting was completely untrue and without foundation.

"He also said that Van did not know Gigi Lee." As the days went on, it transpired that Morrison did in fact know the Texan.

Singer forced to pay promised $1M reward for found laptop



Singer Ryan Leslie makes a YouTube video offering $1 million for the safe return of his stolen laptop and an external hard drive. A German man finds them. Leslie refuses to pay. A court decides he has to.
In the throes of anguish, we make promises that if only the anguish can be removed we will be eternally grateful.

Now a court has decided that such promises are legally enforceable.

For here is the tale of Ryan Leslie, a Harvard-educated singer, songwriter, and producer (Booba and Cory Gunz are two acts whom he has graced), who had his laptop and an external hard drive stolen in 2010 from a black Mercedes in Cologne, Germany.

Leslie was in pain. He took to YouTube, where he offered $1 million for the safe return of the gadgets.

How bursting with joy Leslie must have been when Armin Augstein, who owns an auto-repair shop, found them in a park as he was walking his dog.

Somehow, though, Leslie may have decided that his initial offer of $1 million might have been hasty. What seems clear is that he refused to pay. Which led to Augstein taking him to court.

And winning.

First picture of Taylor and Harry together



The first picture of rumored new couple Taylor Swift and Harry Styes has emerged. It was taken backstage at London's Radio 1 Teen Awards on Sunday October 7, a concert which featured performances from both popstars. BBC Radio 1 DJ Aled Jones has revealed that there was "some serious flirting going on" between the pair at the event.

Styles and Swift arranged to have an intimate dinner at the Luton Hoo Hotel after the awards ceremony. However, when a columnist from The Sun newspaper received a tip about the reservation, the meal was suddenly cancelled.

When One Direction were asked about the rumored dinner during an Irish chat show appearance, Louis Tomlinson suggested that Harry "take this one". However, Styles insisted that he "didn't get asked" to dinner.

Later that month, Styles named Swift as one of his celebrity crushes, telling Seventeen: "She honestly couldn't be a sweeter person. She's genuinely nice and extremely talented, and she deserves everything she has."

Styles also admitted to Cosmopolitan that he was dating someone: "There's someone I like. If you're shown in the papers with other girls when you really like someone else, that's difficult. But still, I think it's important if you're thinking about starting a relationship to do it away from the spotlight. I thought I [had a type] but this girl I like isn't my 'type'. It's more about the person. How they act, their body language, if they can laugh at themselves. I find ambition really attractive too - if someone's good at something they love doing. I want someone who is driven."

In November, the couple were photographed wearing the same necklace and were seen holding hands in Los Angeles.

Jenelle Evans’ Rumored Heroin Addiction Might Mean It’s Time to End ‘Teen Mom’

Photobucket

Teen Mom Jenelle Evans hasn't been necessarily shy about her battles with drug addiction. We've seen her struggle with marijuana use, go through rehab, only to come out and smoke again, breaking her parole. Now, there are even more serious accusations about Jenelle's alleged addictions. Her former best friend and roommate, Allison, has come forward claiming that she's witnessed Jenelle using heroin.

It all started on Twitter, of course, where Allison was answering questions about her quasi-famous slash quasi-infamous ex-best friend. Allison explained that Jenelle's heroin use started about a month after she moved out, and that Jenelle's rapid weight-loss was a result of her addiction.

Furthermore, a woman who was apparently in the same hospital as Jenelle claims that the Teen Mom was there to go through heroin withdrawal, not to have surgery to treat a ruptured ovarian cyst.

Only time will tell if these heroin rumors hold any weight, and while I hope they're not true, it doesn't boggle the mind to think that Jenelle's capable of using hardcore drugs.

What does boggle the mind, though, is the fact that MTV still thinks they're producing and providing a show that realistically depicts what it's like for teen mothers. When will they learn that their show's actually about what it’s like when high school dropouts become rich and famous?

Jenelle's heroin problem, if real, should be a wake-up call. It's not the network's fault, by any means, that Jenelle's made some poor decisions, but they should take a long, hard look at the show that exploits young women's lives and ask themselves what, exactly, they're expecting from future seasons.

Do you believe the rumors that Jenelle's using heroin?

REVENGE POST: Twitter Inspired Plotline

'Revenge' Cast Explains the Winter Finale's Fan-Suggested Twist



If you caught Sunday's episode of ABC's Revenge, you likely saw the promo for this weekend's winter finale.

Among other things, the ninth episode of the sophomore season pushes Daniel (Josh Bowman) further away from the rest of the characters when his bid to seize control of Grayson Global comes to a vote, and Ashley (Ashley Madekwe) is discovered to have engaged in some unseemly behavior with her boyfriend's father.

Madekwe explained the origins of the twist during a Screen Actors Guild panel discussion in Los Angeles for the ABC drama, moderated by The Hollywood Reporter.

"I kept telling [creator Mike Kelley] that whatever we were doing, for some reason, the audience thought that Conrad [Henry Czerny] and I were having an affair," said Madekwe, noting that people picked up on the nonexistent storyline very early in the series. "We weren't. It was never written. It was never played that way."

Apparently Madekwe's Twitter followers never relented in their accusations that her character was sleeping her boss' husband. So she kept telling her showrunner.

"I kept badgering him -- 'They think it's happening anyways, so we might as well give them what they want,' " she said. "And once we get to episode nine, he's like: 'You know what? You did have sex once, and we're going to shoot a sex tape.' My Twitter followers made that happen. They made me a whore."

Hugh Hefner & Crystal Harris Getting Married (Take Two)

hef

Playboy mogul Hugh Hefner is engaged (again) to Crystal Harris (again) and the two will walk down the aisle at the Playboy Mansion on New Year's Eve (oooh, that's new!) ... TMZ has learned.

As TMZ first reported, Harris bailed on wedding #1 in June 2011 ... just five days before the big day. 

But according to our sources, Harris and Hef are better than ever these days, since Harris moved back into the Playboy Mansion earlier this year. We're told the couple have worked out all their previous problems and decided recently they want to try and get married again.

According to our sources, Harris feels the time she spent apart from Hef really taught her how to be independent and stand on her own two feet ... something she felt she needed.

Our sources say the wedding will be an intimate gathering with just close friends and family.

Vino Alan slams X Factor for focusing too much on Pop music



In a shocking elimination, many claimed he was sabotaged.

He spills on how Simon refuses to speak to him, his shock at Demi's bad comments & slams the show for being uninspiring to real artists.


This week, 40-year-old former "X Factor" frontrunner Vino Alan, the oldest contestant and only rock singer in the competition, surprisingly plummeted from the top three all the way down to seventh place--and he was eventually sent home by the judges after a sing-off against 13-year-old Diamond White. Considering that Vino's unexpected fall from grace followed a dramatic incident this week in which his song was switched at the last minute (a similar situation led to Lyric 145's elimination just two weeks ago), his fans quickly cried foul and swapped conspiracy theories, arguing that he'd been deliberately sabotaged by the show.

Phillip Phillips Talks About His New Album; Performs Some Songs.




Aol Sessions



Phillip Phillips: 'Home' Singer Talks Breaking the Pop Mold, Health Struggles & Why He Almost Quit 'Idol'

"I'm nervous," "American Idol" Season 11 champ Phillip Phillips admits in AOL Music's New York Sessions studio. "I haven't been around this many cameras since 'Idol!'" The soft-spoken 22-year-old from Leesburg, Ga. is still adjusting to life in the spotlight since his big win on the reality singing competition show.

It's just Phillip and his guitar for the stripped-down showcase of tracks off his just-released debut album, 'The World From the Side of the Moon.' And the endearingly humble singer-songwriter is just as stripped-down when it comes time for the interview portion of the day. After pouring his heart into his performance, Phillip opens up about how he almost quit "Idol" on multiple occasions, the serious toll his ongoing health struggles took on him and how his music has been able to touch fans facing their own hardships.

“There was a lot of people who didn’t even know I was on ‘Idol,’” he continued. “I think that’s cool.”

It's Halloween in December for Heidi

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Heidi Klum has proven to be a woman who takes Halloween very seriously. So seriously, in fact, that she wasn't going to let a hurricane or even holiday timing get in the way of her annual costume bash.

After canceling her Halloween party in the wake of Hurricane Sandy, the supermodel said that she would be "postponing to a haunted Christmas." The mother-of-four had already begun building excitement for the event, tweeting a preview of her Cleopatra costume. But she saved the best part for the actual event: her jewel-encrusted face.

Heidi arrived at Club Finale in New York for the belated party last night decked out in a gold, sparkly gown, a floor-length cape and an ornate headdress with her face completely covered in tiny rhinestones. It was pretty awesome, if we say so ourselves. (And it was definitely a complete 180 from the recent divorcée's couple costume from last year, which put her and former husband Seal in uncomfortably realistic ape getups.)

The 39-year-old arrived with Santa Claus as her date (no bodyguard boyfriend in sight), which we suppose was a nod to the strange timing of the soiree. But since all proceeds of the party will benefit the Red Cross’ Hurricane Sandy aid, we say: party on, Heidi. But not too hard -- she will be volunteering around New York today for the hurricane relief effort, after all.

A pretty nice (albeit semi-random) way to ring in the holidays, eh?

Katy Perry: I'm Not A Feminist


"I am not a feminist, but I do believe in the strength of women."

"I am not a feminist, but I do believe in the strength of women," Katy Perry said Friday during her "Woman of the Year" acceptance speech Year at Billboard's Women In Music 2012 luncheon.

"I don't really like to call myself a role model for my fans. I hope that I am an inspiration for them, especially young women. My mantra, especially for the ['Part Of Me'] film, was: If you believe in yourself, you can be anything."

That empowering message was felt through the room at Capitale, which hosted many of this year's honorees, including Rising Star Carly Rae Jepsen and Atlantic's Julie Greenwald, Billboard's reigning No. 1 female music executive for three years running. But there can always be room for more.

Marion Cotillard: 'I've worked hard to improve my English'

MarionCotillardUpdosBeehivedchvBq6PJ-ol

Marion Cotillard has admitted that it was quite a challenge to learn English.

The French actress - who won an Oscar for La Vie En Rose - explained to NPR that she studied the English language more seriously after landing Hollywood roles.

"Well, first of all, I love the English language, so it makes it easier [to learn]," she declared.

Cotillard continued: "And also when I was in Los Angeles in 2008, and I met with Michael Mann and he - we did this movie together, I really had to work on my American accent. And I worked for four months, every day, with a dialect coach, and I improved my English a lot.

"I still have a lot of work, but I feel much more comfortable than a few years ago when I got here and I couldn't express myself properly."

Cotillard has landed a variety of high-profile roles in English-language films in recent years, including Nine, Inception and The Dark Knight Rises.

Her current French-language romance film Rust and Bone is now playing in the US and the UK.

The actress revealed earlier this week that she went through a "violent" period of weight loss after giving birth to son Marcel in 2011.

'Breaking Dawn 2' Taking Biggest Box Office Bite of All 'Twilight' Movies #Reboot2016

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The vamps and vampires of “Twilight: Breaking Dawn 2- Part 2” have sunk their fangs into the domestic and global box office, and won’t let go. The franchise finale took in $17.4 million to claim its third consecutive weekend victory in North America, but it has been even more impressive overseas.

"Skyfall” finished a close second in its fourth week with $17 million, to raise the domestic haul for the 23rd James Bond movie to $246 million. It was followed by “Lincoln,” “Rise of the Guardians” and “Life of Pi.” The Brad Pitt crime drama “Killing Them Softly” tanked in its debut, bringing in a disappointing $7 million.

"Breaking Dawn 2" has now taken in $254.6 overall in the U.S., which is just behind the comparable three-week total of 2009's “New Moon” ($259 million), but ahead of “Eclipse” and “Breaking Dawn 1," both of which had $251 million after three weeks. However “Breaking Dawn 2” is taking a much bigger bite of the overseas box office. It added $48.9 million this weekend and has grossed $447 million abroad to become the franchise’s biggest foreign earner, passing the $430 million rung up last year by “Breaking Dawn 1.”

With a total of $702 million, "Breaking Dawn 2" will pass "New Moon" ($709 million) to become the franchise's biggest money earner ever at the worldwide box office.

“This will be the biggest “Twilight” movie ever at the box office and the foreign grosses will be the driving force," BoxOffice.com editor-in-chief Phil Contrino told TheWrap. “These franchise films build and build overseas, and then they explode.”

J-Lo to 'cover up' for Jakarta
jlo
By Elizabeth Yuan, CNN
(CNN) -- Singer Jennifer Lopez, famous for her revealing outfits, is expected to take a more modest approach when she hits the stage this weekend in Indonesia and Malaysia -- both Islamic countries. "She'll have to cover up a little bit," said Chairi Ibrahim, project manager for Dyandra Promosindo, one of the promoters for the Jakarta show of the "Dance Again World Tour" on Friday. She and all the dancers must wear clothes that don't show men's chests or women's cleavage, and sexual dance moves will have to resemble laughs as opposed to "making love," he added. Some women will wear black ties, he said, based on photos he's seen.

The adjustments are in keeping with informal rules that make the concert "suitable for Indonesia" and will satisfy the local government, Muslim Indonesians and clerics, Ibrahim said, adding that he spoke with many parties.

gaga

The near-sellout concert comes nearly six months after Lady Gaga was forced to cancel her sold-out show in Jakarta amid an uproar by Islamic hardliners against her costumes and dance moves.
Ibrahim said that Lopez's case was different because "people know her from 'American Idol,'" where she'd been a judge, and saw her as a "normal girl," while Indonesian clerics deemed Gaga's lyrics as "not very good to youngsters."


Lopez is to perform in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, on Sunday.
On her website, a Malaysian fan ("Yusrizal Hamzah") expressed concern in September over whether strict rules for women might cause a "last-minute cancellation," citing a canceled Beyonce concert in 2009 as an example. "Please J.lo! Malaysian fans want u here!" he wrote.
After Kuala Lumpur, Lopez will perform in Singapore and then Australia.

Sherri Saum Books 'Juicy Role' On ABC's 'Revenge'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Oooh - just booked a juicy role on #Revenge on ABC. Hope I get some. Revenge that is.

Words tweeted by actress Sherri Saum, obviously suggesting that she'll be appearing in the hit ABC Sunday night drama Revenge; although she doesn't share anything further, like what exactly this juicy role might be, whether its a guest-starring, or recurring role, when we can expect to see her in it, etc.

Could she possible be linked in some way to Ashley Davenport (Ashley Madekwe's character)? We'll just have to wait to find out. We've reached out to her publicist and are waiting for a reply. This post will be updated once we receive one.

You'll remember that Saum, whose resume is full of TV work primarily, from 3 seasons on Sunset Beach in the late 1990s, 2 seasons on Rescue Me, to episodes of Heroes, In Treatment, CSI: NY and many others, was tapped to co-star in the Jennifer Lopez/ABC Family pilot, The Fosters, that will center on a lesbian couple who suddenly have their culturally-diverse child-heavy household turned upside down when a wayward teenage girl moves in.

Saum will play one-half of the lesbian couple, opposite Teri Polo, and her character is described as an altruistic school principal, who is determined to save as many kids as she can and agrees to take in the wayward teen girl without her partner's knowledge.

Busy times for Ms Saum.

Haylor lives!


The first official photo of Harry Styles and Taylor Swift has been released. Harry and Taylor were spotted together, with Tom, Lou, and Lux before heading into the zoo in NYC.

Rumors began circulating that the duo was seeing one another when news broke that Taylor was grabbing dinner with one of the members from One Direction after said awards. However, due to the information being leaked to the media the date was canceled.

Since then things between the two stars have been quiet, but this past November the rumors began to heat up. Taylor was seen in Europe wearing a very similar, if not the same, necklace that Harry had been seen rocking for the past couple of years. To further fuel the flame, a couple of days later, Harry was spotted in the United States without the necklace. To see photos click here.

Next time we heard word of the them being spotted together was at Taylor Swift’s, November 15, X Factor rehearsal Witnesses at the rehearsal saw Harry there with Taylor and her mom. Apparently, the duo was acting very flirty and Harry even carried her back to her trailer after she was done rehearsals. Yet, no pictures of the rumored get together were ever released

Grimm Returns For 2nd Half Of Season 2 On March 8 2013



NBC has set the return date for their Grimm and cast members discuss what is coming up in the show.

TV Line reports the second season of Grimm will return on March 8. The show just aired the fall finale on November 16.

Hopefully the long hiatus will not deter fans from returning to watch the unique drama that focuses on Detective Nick Burkhardt (David Giuntoli). Nick learns he is a descendant of the Brothers Grimm and can see Grimm creatures. Some are rehabilitated like Monroe (Silas Weir Mitchell), but some are violent and destructive.

Claire Coffee, who plays Adalind Schade on the show, told TV Line the first episode that will air after the break has a twist.

“The best word I think I can use is scandalous,” she says. “[Bitsie Tulloch and I] had gone to lunch and came back, and we were both like, ‘Did you read 213? Oh my God!’”

“There’s this big twist that will have a direct effect on Adalind,” she continues, “and will possibly [alter] alliances.”

When asked if Nick’s mother will return, Giuntoli tells Entertainment Weekly, “I’ve only read up to 15, and we’ve alluded to certain things. But I don’t know when. I think she will [return].”

Giuntoli says Nick, Monroe, Hank, and Rosalee will all become closer after the break.

“Monroe and I are pretty tight as is,” Giuntoli says. “I think the Rosalee-Hank-Monroe-Nick dynamic is kind of fun. We all have dinner together now, and I think there’s some fun growth in that entire group kind of dynamic.”

Grimm returns to Friday nights starting March 8 on NBC.

The Hawkeye Initiative redraws absurd superheroine poses with Hawkeye

 

We've seen a lot of clever responses to the spine-twisting, butt-baring poses so many female comic book characters are subjected to, but the Hawkeye Initiative is particularly fun. Their mission: to take those particularly awful poses and replace the female characters with Hawkeye.

Why Hawkeye? It seems it all began when artist Blue decided to switch the poses and positions of Hawkeye and the Black Widow on one of their comic book covers:

Actor Sir Patrick Stewart reveals childhood battle to protect his mother from violent father

Sir Patrick 

Sir Patrick Stewart has spoken of how he tried to protect his mother from the terrible beatings she suffered at the hands of his father. 


Stewart said the violence was so bad his mother Gladys would often be left 'bleeding on the floor' after his war-hero father Alf came home drunk. 


He and his brother Trevor would lay awake until their father returned from the pub so they would be ready to break up a fight.


The actor, 72, said the stage became a 'refuge' from his home and he felt safer acting than he did in his own house.


When the rows were at their worst, the two children would have to run to the phone box to call the police but Stewart said officers never treated the matter seriously.

The Trevor Project will honor international superstar Katy Perry with the Trevor Hero Award this Sunday. Presented at the Project's annual Trevor Live events, The Hero Award honors men and women who are an inspiration to youth and increase visibility and understanding of the lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and questioning (LGBTQ) community.

“The Trevor Project is proud to honor Katy Perry with the Trevor Hero Award,” Abbe Land, Executive Director and CEO of The Trevor Project, said in a statement. “Her message inspires and empowers youth to know they have value and that they are deserving of equality, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity.”



The Trevor Project will honor Perry at the The Hollywood Palladium's Trevor Live event this Sunday (December 2). Previous Trevor Hero Award honorees include Lady Gaga, Susan Sarandon, and Daniel Radcliffe.

Katy earned the Trevor Hero Award for speaking out as an ally to the LGBTQ community and inspiring youth to find their spark in her music video “Firework.” The Trevor Project also admires Perry for encouraging men and women to stay true to themselves.

“Everyone deserves a wonderful, fulfilled life. Our sexual orientation or gender identity doesn't change the spark and beauty within,” said Katy Perry. “I’m honored that The Trevor Project has selected me to receive the Trevor Hero Award. Their work has inspired me since 2010, and I know they help save lives.”

Trevor Live is an evening of music, comedy, and entertainment and will feature appearances by some of the biggest names in the industry. Amy Poehler, Jane Lynch, Adam Shankman, and Christa B. Allen are just a few celebs slated to attend the upcoming event.

The Trevor Project is the leading national organization providing crisis intervention and suicide prevention services to lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and questioning young people under 24.

Hollywood swings the gay pendulum

Gays on TV and film aren't just stereotypical hairdressers and fabulous uncles anymore. They also are the gun-toting bad guys, terrorizing their way through your favorite shows with impeccable style.

That's right: From "Skyfall" to "Breaking Bad," the latest craze sweeping pop culture is a new breed of tough, complex, villainous antagonists—who also happen to be gay.

But should we see this as progress for the LGBT community? Well, yes. And no.

LINDSAY LOHAN I DO NOT Need Rehab!



Lindsay Lohan's friends are trying to make her go to rehab, but she's saying NO! NO! NO! ... telling them she doesn't believe she needs it ... TMZ has learned.

As TMZ first reported, Lindsay has become so stressed out by her impending probation violation, she's been hitting the bottle hard ... drinking as much as two liters of vodka per day.

According to our sources, close friends of Lindsay have been urging her to go to rehab BEFORE she goes to court ... hoping the move might win her favor with the judge.

But we're told Lindsay is having none of it ... telling friends she does not think she has a problem with alcohol. Our sources say Lindsay points to the fact that she recently completed three movies as proof she does not need rehab. Funny ... cause watching "Liz & Dick" suggests the opposite.

We're told Lindsay is worried about the upcoming hearing, but maintains she will not check into rehab as a way to try and avoid jail time.

Don't say they didn't warn you.

Louis Smith: "I'm a bit of a gay icon"



Strictly hunk Louis Smith says he is happy to strip off – if the price is right.

The silver medal-winning Olympic gymnast revealed he has been approached to be an underwear model but joked he would only do it if advertisers paid him enough.

Louis, 23, said: “I get lots of attention from females as well as males.

“It’s a bit strange. ­Apparently I’m a bit of a gay icon. I’d go topless for Attitude magazine. I’m not a shy guy when it comes to getting your kit off and taking pictures.

“I know I’m not fat and won’t look offensive, so it’s fine.”

He went on: “I’ve had some interest from an underwear company. But I won’t come too cheap.”


And Louis’ Strictly Come Dancing partner Flavia Cacace claims he could give fans a peek in the Showdance if they vote him into the BBC TV show’s final. “If we get to the final, he’s going topless,” promised Flavia, 33, before last night’s storming Charleston.

FOX News: Who'd be surprised if the next headline says 'Lindsay Lohan Dead?'



At 4:00 am on Thursday morning, Lindsay Lohan was arrested outside a New York bar for allegedly punching a female patron in the face.

On the same day, the Santa Monica City Attorney charged the troubled actress with three crimes – giving false information to a police officer, obstructing or resisting an officer in the performance of his duty, and reckless driving – all stemming from a June accident in which her car rear-ended an 18-wheeler.

Her four-charges-in-two-states-on-one-day grand slam happened while Lohan was on probation from a jewelry-theft conviction, which could mean her probation will be revoked when she's arraigned in California next week.

But a source close to Lohan told us they doubt her latest troubles will have any impact on the troubled star.

“Nothing really registers with Lindsay. She lives in some sort of fantasy land,” the insider said. “She knew before she went out clubbing on Wednesday night that the Santa Monica City Attorney was going to charge her for lying, and yet she still went out. Something is really wrong there.”

15 Non-Rap Diss Songs Done Right

When we think of diss records, our minds immediately jump to hip-hop, a world often predicated on competition, one-upmanship, and clever lyrical jabs. We could spend hours listing favorites, debating the best and the most scathing--Jay-Z's "The Takeover," Nas' "Ether," 2Pac's "Hit Em Up," Common's "The Bitch In Yoo," KRS-One's "The Bridge Is Over," to name but a paltry, famous few.

Today, however, our attention turns away from rap to other genres that don't typically get attention for their use of diss songs (or, as is the case with several songs in this list, "response" songs inspired by a particular happening or person that don't necessarily attack anything or anyone directly). Rock, soul, pop, and even drum n' bass can, of course, prove just as witty, cutting, and vicious as any rap diss, often introducing a level of cleverness and obscurity uncommon to style of song usually best served by directness.

Buckle up and enjoy some of the finest examples of non-rap diss songs done right.
