"Jack White [A.K.A. Best Performance of the Night] Spreads the Love at Grammys"


Jack White has admirers in all genres of music. On the red carpet at the Grammy Awards, Tyler, the Creator turned into a star-struck fan at the sight of White, asking a handler to arrange an introduction and deferentially waiting while White went through media to take a photo and shake hands with the three-time Grammy nominee.

For White, that kind of cross-genre connection is what makes the Grammys special. "That's what's really great about this. I've always loved that. I've never been a one-kind-of-genre kind of person. I like all music, and when you actually get exposed to it in different ways, that's what beautiful on a night like this. It's not a competition – it's listening to everybody from all fields do their own thing," he told Rolling Stone.

Kate Upton Lands Accessorize Campaign

title or description

Model Kate Upton scored a deal to be the new face of Accessorize and its global campaign, according to The Huffington Post.

In ads for its retailer's spring/summer 2013 season, the 20-year-old model wears Accessorize jewelry and handbags, posing in dresses and bikinis. Past accessorize campaign models include Bar Rafaeli and Claudia Schiffer. The campaign ad was released on Monday on the Late Show with David Letterman.

Shot by famous photographer Josh Olins, the ad was set in Barbados and the model walks and lays on the beach sporting pieces from the United Kingdom brand. Talking about her own preference when it comes to jewelry, Upton said "There are no rules! If your outfit allows it, then more is more. I always love rings, and Accessorize has the best rings for everyday wear."

It was recently announced that Upton will grace the cover of the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, which will mark the publication's 50th anniversary. Upton is only the ninth model to appear on the coveted front page twice and only the fifth to be used in back-to-back years. The 2013 issue is expected to outperform the Michigan native's 2012 issue.

Earlier in 2013 Upton was featured in a commerical that debuted during the Super Bowl on Feb. 3. In the advertisement for Mercedes-Benz, the model convinced a group of men in football jerseys to wash the all-new CLA for her.

Upton is reportedly dating MLB Detroit Tigers player Justin Verlander. They met while shooting a video game commercial in February 2012 and were spotted spending New Year's together at the Ritz-Carlton on St. Thomas.

'Here Comes Honey Boo Boo' Christmas: Don't Buy Dirty Underwear At A Flea Market + Episode Clip..

Mama June and her family have done some things that many would consider gross on "Here Comes Honey Boo Boo." They returned to TLC for the Christmas edition of their holiday-themed specials, and did some Christmas shopping at a flea market, where it was revealed that there is a line that June will not allow her family to cross.

It was also revealed that there can be some disgusting stuff at a flea market.

Pumpkin pulled a pair of underwear out of a bag. "They’re used! They’re dirty. Smell ‘em!" June exclaimed, but Pumpkin wasn't having any of it.

"You don’t buy panties from a flea market," June said, which is certainly sound advice. But has she followed it?

Not according to Pumpkin, who said, "Mama, you bought panties here!"

June said the reason she brings the kids to places like the flea market is to teach them to be frugal. She's proven to be smart with her money as well. She's set up trust funds for all of her kids with the money the family has earned from reality TV.

Elisha Cuthbert: 'Maxim's TV's Most Beautiful Woman!


Elisha Cuthbert shows off her rockin’ body on the dual cover of Maxim magazine’s March 2013 issue, out on newsstands Tuesday (February 19)!

Here’s what the 30-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On being named the hottest woman in TV: “To think that one person could be the most beautiful when there’s Kaley Cuoco, Sofía Vergara, Zooey Deschanel? They’re all stunning. I’m not gonna fight anyone about it, though. I’ll accept it with grace. But being on a show with two other beautiful women, this is gonna make going to work very uncomfortable.”

On her celebrity crush: “… In interviews everyone is always asked who their celebrity crush is, and I haven’t had one since Jordan Knight from New Kids on the Block, when I was 12. Now I just say Oprah [Winfrey]. I love that woman. She’ll go to someone’s house and bring a huge bucket of oranges she picked from her Santa Barbara home. Oprah, when did you have time to pick two dozen oranges from your garden?”

On filming Girl Next Door at an actual porn convention: “I remember I had a lot of real porn stars tell me I was like their Julia Roberts from Pretty Woman. Nice sentiment but, you know, a little awkward.”

Harry Potter gets new book covers for 15th anniversary

Harry Potter is getting a new look — or at least new book covers.

On Wednesday, J.K. Rowling's American publisher, Scholastic, unveiled a new cover for Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone, the first of seven new covers that will appear on paperback editions of the series in September.

The new covers, each focusing on a scene from that novel, are designed by Kazu Kibuishi, author and illustrator of the graphic novel series Amulet. Their release will mark the 15th anniversary of the U.S. publication of Sorcerer's Stone
, which started the series that went on to sell 450 million copies worldwide.

In an interview, Ellie Berger, president of Scholastic Trade Publishing, says the new covers aren't meant to replace the original ones by Mary GrandPré, which still will be used on hardcovers and less expensive mass-market paperback editions.

But, she says, "we thought it was time for a fresh approach" for the trade paperbacks "as of a way of attracting the interest of a new generation of 8- and 9-year-olds who may know Harry mostly through the movies."

James Franco Has No Gag Reflex.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

That shouldn't surprise anybody. How do you think he got his first role? It made him a star! James Franco is naturally talented at so many things (examples: inducing the dry heaves with just a few words, inducing the dry heaves with his art, inducing the faps by taking off his shirt [I'm disgustingly easy]), but his biggest natural talent of all his natural talents is that he can deep throat like his last name's Travolta. So if James Franco's careers as a movie star, writer, artist, director, soap star, producer, gay messiah and pop culture savior don't work out, he can be a professional deep throater.

Details says that in Spring Breakers, James Franco gives a beej to a pistol and goes all the way down it. They bring this up during their interview with him and also bring up James Franco's beej scene in his movie The Broken Tower. If you want to make a "not impressed," face then click on this NSFW link to see James Franco put his deep throat skills to work on a dildo.

In the first of several three-ways, Franco performs some very impressive deep throat on two of his character's pistols after the girls turn the tables on him and shove them in his mouth.

"Most people can't get past that gag reflex at the back of the throat," I say.

"Guess I'm a natural," he says with a laugh. "It was my first time."

"So that wasn't you in Broken Tower?"

"Oh shit, you're right!" Franco's eyes light up. "It wasn't my first time."

"You're known for going the extra mile, but that was, what, a good eight inches?"

He gives me a get-real look. "That was a dildo." Then he turns that look back on himself, and I see the real James Franco: "If I'd had the guts, it woulda been real."

"If I'd have the guts..." Now, you know that's a lie and you know James' breath smelled like sweaty dick when he said it. James Franco is method all the way, so I'm sure he's gone down on the real thing for research (for research!). I'm also sure that he can't deep throat worth a shit. James look like one of those types who starts heaving like a cat hacking up a hairball when he barely puts the tip in his mouth. He's got "lightweight peen sucker" written all over his face.

EW Talks to Solange

Her liberated new look stems from the fact that she paid for all of it — the EP, the video, even her website — out of pocket. “Every decision that’s been made behind this record, from the exact color of the album’s artwork to what record stores we put the record in, has been made by me,” she says.

Her son Julez, 8, is getting in on the act too: He’s already taking a stab at becoming a rapper. While Knowles is “terrified” that her son wants to enter the family business, she still encourages him to follow his passions. In fact, she keeps pictures of his handwritten verses on her phone, one of which she offered to read aloud:

“You don’t know how to rap/You’re so fat, like a rat in a mousetrap/You got a pen?/No? I didn’t think so/I’ll get you one if you know how to flow, yo/You got a pocket? I didn’t think so/Because you’re like an armadillo in the road, bro/Have you seen the movie hunger games?” And then it stops there.

Alec Baldwin + wife are having a baby!

Bye, bye 30 Rock, hello daddy duty!

Alec Baldwin, 54, and his wife Hilaria, 28, are expecting their first child together, his rep confirms to PEOPLE.

“We’re so thrilled and we can’t wait to meet our baby,” the couple tell PEOPLE exclusively.

Hilaria, who is due this summer, announced the news on Extra, where she serves as a Special Correspondent for the show.

Baldwin, already dad to daughter Ireland, 17, from his previous marriage to Kim Basinger, and Hilaria, a yoga instructor, tied the knot in June after a three month engagement.

“He’s just really happy,” a source told PEOPLE after the couple announced their wedding plans. “They light up the room whenever they are together.”

Baldwin, who recently picked up a SAG Award for Best Actor in a TV Series for 30 Rock, is in good company: his former costar Tracy Morgan announced he is also expecting a baby.


Miu Miu releases short film starring all-black, female cast

Ava DuVernay made an impact on 2012 with her film Middle of Nowhere as did her lead actress Emayatzy Corinealdi and today a new short film from DuVernay has premiered as part of the Miu Miu Women's Tales collection, this being the fifth installment in what is described as a "celebration of the transformative power of feminine bonds, and a symbolic story of life change."

The title of the short is The Door and it's described by DuVernay as follows:

"In the film, characters arrive at the door of a friend in need, bringing something of themselves... Eventually, we witness our heroine ready to walk through the door on her own. The door in the film represents a pathway to who we are."

The short features Gabrielle Union, Alfre Woodard, Emayatzy Corinealdi, Adepero Oduye (Pariah) and singer-songwriter Goapele and some great music. The first song, "Turn Your Lights On" by Emantive and Ahu sounds like something Prince would have produced and the second song, "Chameleon" (Applejac's Sounds of Mecca Mix) reminded me a lot of N'Dambi's "Deep" (listen here). Finally, Goapele's "For Love" was solid as well, although at first I thought it might end up being a remix of that "Hello (I Just Came to Say)" song that played on those first iPad commercials.

Connie Britton is a Late Bloomer

Connie Britton got over it a long time ago, the part that got away. But it’s a good story, and she still tells it with feeling: The year was 1995. Edward Burns, who had just directed her (and starred in) “The Brothers McMullen,” reached into his backpack one night over dinner and handed her a script that Cameron Crowe had sent him to read. Burns wasn’t interested himself, wanting to act in his own films instead. But he thought Britton was perfect for the romantic lead.

“So I took it home and I read it,” Britton said, sitting on the edge of the couch in her living room 18 years later. “I was blown away. I loved the script, the role — I was like, ‘Oh, my gosh, this is incredible.’ And I walked into my brand-new agent’s office the next day, and I put the script down on his desk, and I was like, ‘I have two words for you: Jerry Maguire.’ ” Britton giggled, but for only a moment, because the story was just beginning. She nailed the audition. Crowe told her she had shown him just what the character should be. A few months after that, she was flown to New York to do a reading with Tom Cruise.

Mila and Ashton lead Lakers to victory, Ellen grills her on Valentine's Day

It wasn't all overt affection for Mila and Ashton, though — at one point, they held up a piece of paper to share a private moment.

Their night out comes in the middle of a fun week. Ashton turned 35 on Feb. 7, and tomorrow is, of course, Valentine's Day.Collapse )

Not Even Hugh Jackman's Wife Thinks He's Straight

The "gay rumors" question that seems to follow Hugh Jackman to many a celebrity interview is back in a new Hollywood Reporter cover story, giving Jackman an opportunity to possibly express the same "ain't nothing wrong with it" sentiment espoused by evolved beings like Honey Boo Boo, and let the issue die.

But no:

Despite these friends and a seemingly idyllic life, Jackman admits rumors about his sexuality have taken a greater toll than previously acknowledged, especially on his wife. "Just recently, it bugs her," he says, blaming the Internet, which she frequents more than he does. (Jackman largely sticks to cricket sites and The Economist.) "She goes: 'It's big. It's everywhere!'"

His X-Men producer Lauren Shuler Donner shrugs off the gossip. "I have seen him with Deborra since the beginning of their trip to Hollywood, and I've been on five movie sets with him and have never seen him stray, have never seen him eye anyone. I met him when he did Oklahoma! [at London's Royal National Theatre in 1999]. He was genuine, hugely talented. He was in love with his wife that day and still is."

William Shatner says J.J. Abrams ‘has gone too far’ in taking over both ‘Star Trek’ and ‘Star Wars’


A certain "Star Trek" veteran feels that J.J. Abrams has indeed boldly gone where no man has gone before ... and not in a good way.

William Shatner, known worldwide (and perhaps beyond) as the man who played Captain James T. Kirk in the original "Star Trek" series and in seven feature films, was recently asked about how he feels about "Star Trek" director J.J. Abrams now also taking the captain's chair on "Star Wars." Shatner is not as enthusiastic as others have been when it comes to Abrams pulling double duty on arguably the two biggest sci-fi franchises of all time.

"He's being a pig," Shatner said during an interview with Movie Fanatic. "He's collecting the two franchises and holding them close to his vest. He's probably the most talented director of that ilk that we have but he's gone too far this time."

ACM Nominations: Eric Church, Hunter Hayes, Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift Are On Top

Vegas is about to get country, y'all!

The nominations for the 48th annual Academy of Country Music Awards were announced this morning, and Eric Church, Hunter Hayes, Miranda Lambert and Taylor Swift nabbed the most noms for male and female artists respectively.

Church landed a whopping seven nominations, while Hayes came in with a total of six although neither artist is nominated for the prestigious Entertainer of the Year award—an accolade both Lambert and Swift, who received five nominations each, are competing for.

Reigning Entertainer of the Year T.Swift is also on top, having received her fourth consecutive nod for the highly coveted honor. If she wins, this will be her third consecutive year to be crowned country music's top performer. The "We Are Never Ever Getting Back Together" singer is also nominated for the sixth time for Female Vocalist of the Year, which will be her third consecutive win if she takes home the trophy. Oh, and she also won a Grammy last Sunday (no big deal!).

Carrie Underwood—who recently took home the Grammy for Best Country Solo Performance and Best Country Song—received her eighth consecutive nomination for Female Vocalist of the Year. Pop singer Natasha Bedingfield is also dipping her toes into the country waters, receiving her first ACM nomination for Vocal Event of the Year for "Easy" with Rascal Flatts.

And finally, Blake Shelton—who's teaming up with Luke Bryan to host this year's show—is nominated for three awards, including Male Vocalist of the Year (he's the current title holder) and Entertainer of the Year.

Evan Rachel Wood furious over paparazzi pictures


Actress Evan Rachel Wood on Wednesday fired off a series of angry tweets to vent about paparazzi pictures that show her clutching ultrasound scans of her unborn child presumably near a hospital. The photos first appeared in The Daily Mail.

"I have never been more violated by a photographer," she wrote in one tweet (below). "Thats the inside of my body and my child. Would u like my soul too? nothing is sacred."

Wood, who is married to actor Jaime Bell, asked The Daily Mail via Twitter to take down the images. The 25-year-old says the ultrasound scans are "private medical records" and calls the photographer's actions an "invasion."

After her tweets appeared, the link to The Daily Mail story now brings up this message: "The page you have requested does not exist or is no longer available."

Alyson Hannigan gets restraining order against man who allegedly threatened to kill her

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

"American Pie" star Alyson Hannigan has obtained a restraining order against a man she claims is mentally unstable and threatened to kill her, TMZ has learned.

The "How I Met Your Mother" actress filed a request for a restraining order in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming John Hobbs has been harassing her on the Internet -- posting threatening messages on Facebook, MySpace, and Alyson's website.

Hannigan says Hobbs is "mentally unstable and was recently discharged from a mental hospital."

In addition to herself, Alyson got protection for her husband and two kids.

A hearing has been set for March 6th ... when a judge will decide whether to make the restraining order permanent.

Holy fuck, that is terrifying.

Emmett Till's Family Responds To Lil Wayne's Disrespectful Lyric

Over the weekend, Future dropped a remix to his "Karate Chop" track that features Lil Wayne. During his verse, Weezy dropped a disrespectful punchline that used the name of Emmett Till. The family of the then 14-year-old Black boy that was murdered in 1955 in Mississippi for whistling at a white woman is none too happy about said line.

On the "Karate Chop (Remix)," Weezy raps, "Beat that p-ssy up like Emmett Till."

For the record, the late Emmett Till wasn't just beat up. After being kidnapped, he was beaten on throughout the night, shot and then tossed into the Mississippi River with a 7o-pound fan tied around his neck with barbed wire to keep his body from floating back up. Till's corpse did eventually rise and was found a couple of day later by two boys fishing. Despite his head and face being heinously mutilated, his mother demanded to have an open casket at her son's funeral so everyone could see what was done to her child.

Till's murder was a catalyst for the Civil Right Movement, which in turn helped Wayne maintain his lavish lifestyle today.

'House of Cards' is Netflix's most-watched program

Since its debut less than two weeks ago, Netflix’s House of Cards has made quite the splash. In fact, it’s currently the most-watched program.

Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos touted the accomplishment at a media conference, according to All Things D, but declined to elaborate on specific numbers and metrics, saying he is doing so to avoid comparisons to traditional broadcast shows.

Even without numbers, however, the fact that Cards is besting the streaming site’s thousands of current TV offerings is impressive, and a good sign, considering they’ve already committed to a second season of the Kevin Spacey-helmed drama.

Keira's TV ad is now strictly for grownups: Chanel advert banned for being too sexually suggestive

Children are being banned from seeing Keira Knightley in the role of sultry temptress in a TV perfume commercial. The British actress has ridiculed her lack of curves, however it seems her bare shoulders are enough to confuse and upset some youngsters. As a result, advertising watchdogs have banned showings of the commercial for Chanel’s Coco Mademoiselle around children’s programmes and films. The idea that children’s eyes need to be shielded from the British actress’s performance will surprise viewers. Chanel defended the commercial, insisting it was playful and sensual rather than overtly sexual.

However, the Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) disagreed at a time when many parents, including the Prime Minister, are becoming increasingly concerned about the sexualisation of children.

Disney Prince Hotness Scale

5. Beast
Ah, yes, the weird creature that made us all think, "I'm not a furry, but now I totally get it." The Beast transforms from domineering brute to snuggly sweetheart. Frankly, he'd be higher on the list, but unfortunately his true form, Prince Adam, is just too bland and beefcake-y. Sorry, prince: You were way hotter when you were covered in a thick coat of hair.

‘Adventure Time’ actor Tom Kenny on Ice King’s loneliness, tragic past

In the massively popular Cartoon Network series “Adventure Time,” veteran voice actor Tom Kenny plays Ice King, a curmudgeonly wizard who lives in a snow fortress with a legion of penguins and whichever princess he has most recently kidnapped. For Kenny, the Ice King is the latest in a long line of zany characters; during his 20-plus years in the industry, he has lent his voice to more than 200 productions, including such landmark series as “Rocko’s Modern Life,” “Dexter’s Laboratory,” “The Powerpuff Girls” and “SpongeBob SquarePants,” in which he played SpongeBob.

Like those groundbreaking predecessors, “Adventure Time” has earned a loyal audience by defying the tropes typical to children’s television shows. The series, created by Pendleton Ward, follows Finn, a human boy, and Jake, his magical shape-shifting dog, as they fight monsters and rescue princesses in a whimsical, post-apocalyptic candyland. Monday’s episode focused on the Ice King’s fan fiction adventures of Fionna and Cake — girl versions of the show’s heroes in a gender-inverted story-within-a-story.

Hero Complex caught up with Kenny to talk about the villainous Ice King, the popularity of Fionna and Cake, and his prolific career.

Stanley Tucci Says Hayley Atwell Will Be Making a Cameo in CAP A #2

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Last month, we reported that Hayley Atwell would not be reprising her role as Peggy Carter in Captain America: The Winter Soldier. In an interview with TimeOut, she said she wouldn’t be returning. However, Steve interviewed her Captain America co-star Stanley Tucci earlier today for Jack the Giant Slayer, and it looks like her comments may have been a little misdirection or the script has changed since her interview.

Tucci is one of my favorite actors, and was one of the best aspects of Captain America: The First Avenger. When asked about the film, Tucci talked about how much he enjoyed working on it:

I loved making that movie. I had a great time. I really like Joe Johnston. I think he’s a wonderful director. I also love the look of the film, and the tone of the film, and the character was great. I was thrilled to be able to play that. I was so sad that I died because I wanted to come back and do another one. It was great to be offered this old, German scientist. I thought, “Oh, that’s great.” I couldn’t tell if I was really flattered or insulted. I don’t know.

When Steve brought up the film’s strong love story, and Tucci shared that praise:

Oh, it does. And Hayley Atwell, who I just had dinner with last night, we’ve become good friends. I really love that. I really love the relationship between the two of them.

It’s been strongly hinted that there would be flashbacks in Winter Soldier, and Steve asked Tucci if he had been asked back to appear in those scenes. Tucci replied,

No, they haven’t, unfortunately. I’m really sad. I know that Hayley is going back to do a flashback scene, but I have not been asked.

While I would love to see more of the Dr. Abraham Erskine, it doesn’t make much sense since he got to see Super Soldier Steve Rogers for all of ten seconds before being killed. There’s a far greater likelihood of Atwell, especially since a deleted scene in The Avengers shows Rogers going through old dossiers and discovering that Peggy is still alive. However, as Tucci says, it looks like we’re going to be seeing Peggy in a flashback scene. It will be interesting to see if this pans out, and how the scene will fit into the film.


Thanks for leaking that Info, Mr Tucci - ONTD can rejoice now and all that jazz.

Peter Dinklage Joins 'X-Men: Days Of Future Past'

The way things are going, either everyone is going to be on screen for two minutes or "X-Men: Days Of Future Past" is going to be four hours long, as the cast keeps growing and growing. With Michael Fassbender, James McAvoy, Nicholas Hoult, Jennifer Lawrence, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Hugh Jackman, Ellen Page, Anna Paquin and Shawn Ashmore among the cast already, now another name is coming on board.

Director Bryan Singer tweeted tonight: "Officially like to welcome #PeterDinklage from #GameOfThrones to #XMEN #DaysofFuturePast Very very excited!" Okay, Dinklage rules so we have no problem with this, but the big question is, who is he going to play? Could he be Puck, featured in the Alpha Flight storyline? Or maybe Singer is rebooting Toad? While the 'Days Of Future Past' storyline is pretty strictly defined, with the film also linking back to the original trilogy, there are a variety of ways this could play.

Who do you think Dinklage will play? Maybe we're all just wrong in assuming he's an X-Men character, and he'll be taking one of the non-mutant roles. Let us know your thoughts below.


Mary J. Blige gets cosy with notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan

"Despite rumors that the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan and Mary J. Blige are at odds over her role in the Lifetime movie, Betty and Coretta, the two met this weekend over lunch in California, where the award-winning artist presented the Minister with a personally autographed copy of her recent edition of L.A. Confidential magazine.

The magazine was signed by Blige with a sweet message that debunked the made-up beef:

"Thank you for everything. I love you.

The movie details the story of the slain civil rights leaders' wives and highlights a number of negatives about both Martin Luther King, Jr. and Malcolm X, including allegations that Min. Farrakhan had something to do with Malcolm's death.

But in an interview posted in The Final Call, Min. Farrakhan gives his take on Blige both playing Betty Shabazz and executive producing the film.

"I cannot answer for Mary J. Blige except to say that when a person is famous or well-known, sometimes they will give such person “executive producer status” to add to the strength of the film. Mary J. Blige is my friend! And nothing that’s in this movie has diminished my love and respect for her.""

Xtina leaves her dog TIED UP OUTSIDE while she goes for lunch

Singer Christina Aguilera went for a bite to eat Saturday in Los Angeles, but before going inside the restaurant to put in her order, she tied up her beloved pooch on a nearby post.

The brown and white speckled dog was clearly sad to see her go and looked a little forlorn.

Fortunately he was given lots of cuddles before his mistress popped inside the eatery briefly.
