Daughter of actor Klaus Kinski says he raped her as a child

Pola Kinski accuses late father of subjecting her to rape and violent abuse over period of 14 years

A daughter of the late Klaus Kinski, the German actor who starred in films such as Fitzcarraldo, has accused him of raping her as a child over a period of 14 years.

"I kept quiet for years because he forbade me from talking about it," Pola Kinski, now 60, told Stern magazine. "The terrible thing is that he once told me that it was completely natural, that fathers all over the world did that with their daughters."

I know people on here might be too young to know him but he is considered an acting legend and a genius and the fans coming to his defense now are using the most disgusting victim blaming (asking why she waited so long to come forward with this, she only wants publicity etc). It's well known that this madman was a monster irl but it just gets ignored. During the shooting of "Fitzcarraldo" the natives reportedly offered Werner Herzog to kill Kinski because they thought he was the devil. They might not have been far off the mark.

Adam Lambert and 19 Recordings Part Ways, Still Signed to RCA

Adam Lambert is getting ready to take the next step in his "evolution" as an artist.

Although the American Idol season eight runner-up had split with 19 Management in August 2011, he remained signed to the recording arm of 19 Entertainment (now owned by CORE Media Group) for another 18 months.

According to sources, January marked the expiration for that contract, although he is still on the roster at RCA Records. “It’s good for both sides,” says an insider. “Adam can move forward with his plans and 19 isn’t stuck in the middle.”

A rep for Lambert says the two parties leave “amicably and with the utmost respect for each other,” adding that the decision is but one part of the singer’s “evolution,” which began when he joined Direct Management Group, home to Katy Perry among other clients.

Facebook Starts Charging Lots of Money to Send Messages

Want to message Mark Zuckerberg on Facebook? For $100, your note will land in his inbox.

Traditionally, if a Facebook user messages someone outside his or her network, the missive gets sent to the "Other" mailbox -- a rarely checked purgatory most users don't even know exists. It's a practice intended to protect users from a spam deluge.

Facebook said in December that it would begin testing out paid messages, allowing users to contact people with whom they have no direct connection in return for a fee. Facebook didn't say at the time how much it would cost, but the answer turns out to be "a lot."

Mashable discovered on Thursday that sending a message to Facebook founder Zuckerberg carries a $100 price tag. That's also what it costs to message Facebook COO Sheryl Sandburg , CFO David Ebersman, and several other Facebook members CNNMoney tried, such as Digg founder Kevin Rose.

"We are testing some extreme price points to see what works to filter spam," a Facebook representative told CNNMoney.

The messaging fee is one of several new revenue streams Facebook is testing out. The company has traditionally drawn most of its revenue from advertising sales, but its latest experiments explore generating cash directly from its 1 billion members.


Let the rumors begin: Britwick broke up over kids

Britney Spears and Jason Trawick broke up primarily because she wanted to have more kids and he didn't ... TMZ has learned.

Sources directly connected to the couple tell us ... Britney, who is 31, loves her boys and desperately wants more kids. Jason, who is 41, is "in another place" and does not want to start a family -- although he loves Sean Preston and Jayden James. We're told the former couple argued frequently about family and this ultimately proved their undoing.

Our sources say ... there's something else -- dealing with the Britney empire wore at Jason and "took away his individuality." Jason wanted to maintain his identity and one of the ways was to expand his business by taking on more clients (he's an agent) and making more money -- this didn't sit well with Britney.

As for settling up -- we're told it's simple. There are no outstanding financial issues. Sources say the house Britney just bought -- $8.5 mil in Thousand Oaks, CA -- was purchased solely with her money and Jason has no claim to it.

Check Out Sean Lennon's Mystical Weapon


Mystical Weapons is a brash new experimental-psych project from Sean Lennon (The Ghost Of A Saber Tooth Tiger) and Deerhoof drummer Greg Saunier. The two formed after meeting at a Plastic Ono Band show, added filmmaker and artist Martha Colburn on visuals -- and the rest, as they say, is improv history. 

"Instantly, we had this rapport!" Saunier recently toldInterview magazine.

That rapport led to the duo's freeform, self-titled debut (out Jan. 15) on Lennon’s own Chimera Music label.

An improvised album does require good chemistry between the musicians, and, perhaps most importantly, between the band and the listener. This album has both. From the delicately wrought "Silk Screen Eyes," and playfulness of "Mechanical Mammoth," to the blistering guitar work and shredding drums of "Colony Collapse Disorder" Mystical Weapons bubbles over with a kind of frenetic energy. But throughout, Lennon and Saunier clearly have this mystical jam very much under control.

You can preview the whole sonic experiment a few days early and watch a video from Martha Colburn for the song "Colony Collapse Disorder."

There's still another way to get an advance look: Mystical Weapons play their album release show Saturday, Jan. 12th at Big Sky Works in Brooklyn.



AlunaGeorge cover Frank Ocean's 'Thinkin Bout You'


Alunageorge have covered Frank Ocean's 'Thinkin Bout You'.

Listen to the duo's version of the 'Channel Orange' track, which they performed earlier today (January 7) on BBC 1Xtra.

At the end of last year, Alunageorge – who will release their debut album 'Body Music' in June - topped a poll to discover the most blogged about artist of 2012 in the UK.

The pop duo, who released their single 'Your Drums, Your Love' in 2012, came top of the poll ahead of Haim, Lana Del Rey, Jessie Ware and Mercury Prize winners Alt-J.

Dexter's final season to air this summer

Showtime is splitting up its two most popular series.

Dexter and Homeland, which aired back to back in fall the past two years, will separate, so the network can use them as launching pads to introduce two new dramas.

Homeland, the Emmy-winning best drama, will remain in the fall, returning for a third season in September. But Dexter, the serial-killer series starring Michael C. Hall, will air its eighth and final season this summer. It will be followed by Ray Donovan, a new drama starring Liev Schreiber as a Los Angeles "fixer" to the rich and powerful. Jon Voight and Elliott Gould also star.

Homeland's new companion is Masters of Sex, a fictionalized biography of sex researchers William Masters and Virginia Johnson, that stars Michael Sheen and Lizzy Caplan.

Dancing on Ice star Luke Campbell on how boxing saved him

The 25-year-old is charming, modest and cheerful – characteristics he says he owes to the sport which saved him from a life of aggression and crime

At 5.30am in the chilly shadow of Hull’s Humber Bridge, Olympic champion boxer Luke Campbell arrives for his gruelling daily run.

The Dancing On Ice star, who won gold at London 2012, declares, “It’s the thought of losing that drives me”, as he starts his training regime in the fog by the river.

But despite his obvious determination, the 25-year-old is charming, modest and cheerful – characteristics he says he owes to the sport which saved him from a life of thuggery, aggression and crime.

“I wasn’t a nice kid at all,” he explains. “I was a very aggressive person, short-tempered and always in and out of trouble at school.

“I wasn’t a nice person to be around as a youngster and my family and friends would tell you that, too.

Reddit co-founder takes his own life

WASHINGTON — Aaron Swartz, an Internet genius who helped deliver new Web content to users by co-developing Reddit and RSS before later becoming a digital activist, has committed suicide. He was 26.

Ellen Borakove, spokeswoman for New York's chief medical examiner, said Swartz hung himself and was pronounced dead late Friday in the city's Brooklyn borough. At the time of his death, Swartz, who had gone on to press for free public access to Web content, was just weeks away from being put on trial on accusations of stealing millions of scientific and literary journal articles from the subscription-only JSTOR service. He faced decades in prison and $1 million in fines if convicted. Following the activist's 2011 arrest, anti-censorship group Demand Progress said the prosecution "makes no sense."

"It's like trying to put someone in jail for allegedly checking too many books out of the library," the group's executive director David Segar said in a statement then. Swartz also had publicly discussed on his blog his battle with depression. Fellow technology activist Cory Doctorow met Swartz at 14 or 15 after he had already helped develop the RSS tool for users to get updates from blogs, news headlines and other online content. He later co-founded the social news website Reddit.

"In so many ways, he was an adult, even then, with a kind of intense, fast intellect that really made me feel like he was part and parcel of the Internet society," Doctorow wrote on the Boing Boing blog. "But Aaron was also a person who'd had problems with depression for many years... Whatever problems Aaron was facing, killing himself didn't solve them. Whatever problems Aaron was facing, they will go unsolved forever."

In an angry online post, Harvard Law School's Safra Center for Ethics director Lawrence Lessig denounced federal prosecutors' "bullying." "The question this government needs to answer is why it was so necessary that Aaron Swartz be labeled a 'felon,'" Lessig wrote. In an earlier post, the scholar wrote: "there is no way to express the sadness of this day."

"To the co-creator of RSS, of the Creative Commons architecture, of part of Reddit and of endless love and inspiration and friendships, rest. We are all incredibly sorry to have let you down," he added.


RIP. He was younger than me. Also, his 'co-founding' of Reddit is apparently hotly debated. His company merged with Reddit about 6 months after launch but is officially called a founder.

Demi Moore follows in Lohan's footsteps again, now dating LL's ex

Demi Moore may have a new love interest.

The actress and restaurant owner Harry Morton have been on several dates in recent weeks, including one to the South Beverly Grill in Beverly Hills, according to a source.

"Demi was very giddy during her date with Harry," says the source. "She was really into him and seemed to very much enjoy his company."

Moore, 50, and Morton, 31, have also hung out together at Moore's Beverly Hills home, the source adds.

In November of 2011, Moore and ex Ashton Kutcher announced the end of their marriage. He filed for divorce in December 2012 and has been dating his That '70s Show costar Mila Kunis.

Harry Morton, who founded Pink Taco restaurant chain, dated Lindsay Lohan in 2006 and was linked to Jennifer Aniston in 2010.

A source told E! Online, who first reported the news, "They are just getting to know one another ... [Moore is] in a really good place at the moment and is hopeful about the future."

Martin Freeman And Richard Armitage Talk 'Naughtiness' And 'P***-Taking' On 'The Hobbit' Set

Dwarves and hobbits can't stop laying into each other in real life

The cast of 'The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey' had to spend 266 days out in New Zealand filming so you could hardly blame them for going a little stir-crazy, and Martin Freeman and head dwarf Richard Armitage have revealed that there was a lot of clowning around going on on set.

Armitage, who plays head dwarf Thorin Oakenfeld, told STV: "Have to be honest, when Ian's (McKellen) on set there is a lot of naughtiness happening, but you know when those dwarves get together it was, competition of the funniest and most of them are absolutely hilarious.”

At a press conference in London the scale of naughtiness was revealed as the veteran star couldn't resist having a flirt with dwarf James Nesbitt.

Martin Freeman agreed, telling the station: "Yeah, there was a lot of laughter, really a lot of laughter and a lot of p***-taking. I think that's the way we operate, certainly the way the Brits and Irish operate, and the Kiwis as well. The Kiwis are very Anglo in their tastes and characteristics."

Andy Serkis, who stars as Gollum, said: “You're going to be out on a rocky sea for a long time and you all jump in and help each other out. Some people are feeling down one day, someone else will make you feel a bit chipper. And it does become like that.”

The film debuted last week, becoming Peter Jackson' s biggest opening visit to Middle-earth to date.

Oscar-Nominated ‘Zero Dark Thirty’ Picketed By People Who Say Movie Advocates Torture

HOLLYWOOD (CBSLA.com) — The critics agree “Zero Dark Thirty” — a film depicting the decade-long hunt for Osama bin Laden — is gritty and moving.

The movie is also filled with scenes of disturbing and graphic torture and has many people upset. But not about the images and what they depict — what the images suggest.

The film has garnered five Oscar nominations, including Best Picture. But it’s also beset with controversy and criticism.

CBS2 and KCAL9 Political Reporter Dave Bryan went to a theater in Hollywood Friday evening and spoke to a group of people who say the movie glorifies torture.

While the film has been playing in Los Angeles since mid-December, it opened nationwide Friday.

A small group — protesting with hoods over their heads — stood outside the theater with signs denouncing torture, drones and indefinite detention.

The signs prominently listed that group’s website as worldcantwait.net.

Another group, the interfaith United For Justice and Peace, say that two Hollywood stars — namely Martin Sheen and Ed Asner — have issued an appeal to other actors to vote their conscience on whether to reward the movie with a win on Oscar night.

Union J confirm new single recording while X Factor winner James Arthur hits 1 million record sales

The boy band, who finished fourth in the last series of the X Factor, signed a record deal with Sony at the end of last year.  Taking to Twitter last night, the boys revealed that they would be going into the studio on Monday.  They tweeted: “Recording or first single on Monday! So sorry Belfast but we have to change the gig date, things are moving so fast for us! We'll be back! X”

Following the X Factor Union J went on the charm offensive across the country, performing a number of gigs.  The band then took a well deserved break over the festive period to recover from a somewhat hectic year.  George Shelley, 19, admitted that it was nice to take some time out to simply relax.  He said: “It’s been nice to have some family time, we’ve been in a bubble for three months.”  The boys are now however back together and ready to try and make 2013 their year.

Meanwhile X Factor winner James Arthur, 24, hit a landmark total of sales this week with his debut single ‘Impossible.’ The singer has now shifted over 1 million copies of the song since it was released five weeks ago.  Pretty impressive stuff.  James has also finalised his winner’s deal with Simon Cowell owned record label Syco, meaning that he is now able to get to work on his debut album.  Speaking about the deal, James admitted: "I am thrilled to be part of the Syco family, working with Simon and his team is exactly where I want to be.   I can't wait to get into the studio to start work on my record!"

Fellow finalists Ella Henderson and Jahmene Douglas have also landed themselves record deals since leaving the show.  It looks like 2013 is going to be a HUGE year for the X Factor alumni of 2012.
