P!nk™ Sets Mark For Most Adult Pop Songs No. 1s

In posting her eighth leader, she passes Maroon 5 and Katy Perry for the most No. 1s in the chart's 17-year history.

P!nk rewrites the record for the most No. 1s in the 17-year history of Billboard's Nielsen BDS-based Adult Pop Songs radio airplay chart, as "Just Give Me a Reason," featuring fun.'s Nate Ruess, rises 2-1 to become her eighth leader on the list. She passes Maroon 5 and Katy Perry, each with seven No. 1s. P!nk also moves ahead of Maroon 5 for the most consecutive No. 1s (five) in the survey's archives; Maroon 5 has reigned with its last four singles.

The coronation of "Reason," which pushes 3-2 on Pop Songs and 24-15 on Adult Contemporary and has spent the past two weeks atop the Billboard Hot 100, follows the No. 1 ascent of P!nk's prior single "Try" on AC two weeks ago. Both songs appear on P!nk's sixth studio album, "The Truth About Love," which became her first Billboard 200 No. 1 in September.

Queen Liza Reveals New NOH8 Campaign Portrait

The legendary Liza Minnelli was the latest celebrity to support the acclaimed NOH8 campaign. Liza's NOH8 portrait was unveiled today by the organization whose mission is to promote equality through visual protest. Check it out below!

The NOH8 Campaign is a photographic silent protest created in direct response to the passage of California's Proposition 8 which amended the state Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. Photos feature subjects with tape over their mouths, symbolizing their voices being silenced by Prop 8 and similar legislation around the world, with "NOH8" painted on one cheek in protest.

When Liza was asked her message for the LGBT community she responded, "Here's what I believe ... no shame, no blame, no guilt. Try and be happy. And be who you are. I love you."

Have you ever wondered what it's like to be married to Piers Morgan?

My husband’s cheating on me with three million people

I’m tired of people I don’t know telling me stories of my husband’s Twitter escapades



A couple of years ago at an Oscar party, I met Jack Dorsey. The rapper 50 Cent and Cameron Diaz were pushing through the crowds to pay homage to the co-founder of Twitter, but I could only think of one thing to say to him: “If my marriage dies, it’s your fault.” He laughed; I didn’t. I wasn’t joking. Diana had three people in her marriage – I’ve got more than three million. And I’m tired of it.

I’m tired of people I don’t know telling me stories of my husband’s Twitter escapades. I’m tired of the dinner party conversation surrounding those virtual romps (never having used it myself, I’m oblivious to what goes on in the Twittersphere). I’m tired of the pitying glances of other women in restaurants as he sits there, tapping out cricket tweets to Kevin Pietersen in between mouthfuls.

Taylor Swift arrives at new Rhode Island mansion by private jet



Taylor Swift visited her new Rhode Island summer home on Wednesday, May 1. The singer-songwriter arrived in Watch Hill by private jet with her parents and bodyguards. Swift recently paid for the $17m beachfront mansion in full with a single payment via wire transfer.

Located in Watch Hill, Rhode Island, this marks the songstress' fourth property. She currently divides her time between a three-bedroom penthouse in midtown Nashville, Tennessee and a three-bedroom cottage in Beverly Hills, California. She also owns an estate in Belle Meade, Tennessee, purchased for her parents.

Watch Hill has been unusually busy since news of Swift's real estate deal broke. Electricians, painters and moving vans have been spotted at the property, while TV Crews from Fox News and NBC 10 have been in town to interview villagers.

Darren Criss admits to having a shitty voice in new Broadway.com interview.


(Won't embed, click thumbnail to watch.)

The interview is over 27 minutes long, so here's what he says about his voice at 22:15:

"I have a very kind of thin pop voice, like it's hard for me to fill an auditorium […] I've never made claims to being like a singer. [...] I have a vocal weird defect where my folds don't close all the way, like I don't have a vibrato."

Kellegend train can't stop, won't stop!


For Kelly Clarkson, 2013 has been the Year of the Jam-Packed Schedule. From singing at President Obama’s inauguration to attending award shows to filming segments for television, it seems like the country crossover star hasn’t had a minute to stop and rest.


For her latest trick, Clarkson stopped by the set of an upcoming CBS show called ‘The Crazy Ones’ to film a singing performance. So far, few details about the new show have leaked, but we do know that ‘Buffy the Vampire’ star Sarah Michelle Gellar and comedian Robin Williams are involved.

Williams tweeted a photo of himself flanked by the two beautiful blondes after wrapping a day of filming for the new show.

Entertainment Weekly described ‘The Crazy Ones’ as “a single-cam comedy about a father (Williams) and daughter (Gellar) who run an advertising agency together.”

It’s not clear how Clarkson’s impressive singing voice fits in to the show, but actor Seth Austin tweeted that he spent the afternoon on set listening to the star perform.

The episode will probably air next fall.

Consider us curious, interested and looking forward to seeing Clarkson on the small screen. She appeared as a mentor on the ABC reality singing competition ‘Duets’ last summer. The series will not be returning for a second season.

Why Netflix Isn't Worried About Internet Piracy


In an interview with Stuff magazine on Wednesday, Netflix Chief Content Officer Ted Sarandos made a bold claim: he says his company is actually hurting pirate sites. "When we launch in a territory," Sarandos said, "the Bittorrent traffic drops as the Netflix traffic grows."

If Sarandos's claim is right, it means Netflix, at least on the anti-piracy front, is handily outpacing longtime rival HBO. HBO has had a longstanding problem with piracy; their critically-acclaimed fantasy epic "Game Of Thrones" has been pirated more than 4 million times, making it the most pirated show of the year in 2012.

Winona Ryder: I Don't Eat on Camera Anymore



Was it something she ate? Pretty much!

Winona Ryder is making a grand return to the spotlight, and she's sharing some tricks of the trade she's learned along the way.

For one: Just say no to nibbling scenes. While filming the lesser-known 1990 teen comedy Welcome Home, Roxy Carmichael, Ryder, then 19, says she learned this the hard way.

"There's a scene in my bedroom where I start eating Almond Roca," Ryder, 41, tells PEOPLE while promoting her new film The Iceman in New York City. "I was so young. It was before I knew the tricks of moviemaking, and I didn't know you shoot a lot of different angles."




One tasty toffee led to another. "I gobbled them and didn't realize I had to keep doing it," says Ryder, "So I had to eat 64 Almond Roca that day. I got so sick."

Dozens of popular films and food scenes later, Ryder says it's a feeling she's never forgotten.

"In the beginning you're like, 'Ooh, that looks good.' But hours later, no. Now when I do a film, you never see me eating. I'll be doing this," says the actress, motioning towards her mouth, "but rarely do I ever put it in."

Which may just be the trick when you see Ryder eating in 1995's Reality Bites.

Iron Man 3: $68.5 Million Friday Take, $170 Million Weekend Likely



Exhibitor Relations has reported that Iron Man 3 earned $68.5 million on its first “day” of national domestic release.  I use the quotes because, as is par for the course these days, that first day includes the Thursday night advance showings.  In this case, that includes $15.6 million worth of 9pm-12:01am screenings.  Now that means that 22% of Iron Man 3′s opening day came from advance screenings.  That’s a healthier number than, for example, The Hunger Games, which earned $19 million at midnight and earned $67 million on its first day (28%).  It’s much healthier than the likes of The Dark Knight Rises ($30 million at midnight and $77 million over its first day) or Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part II ($43 million at midnight – a record, and $91 million over Friday, also a record but insanely front-loaded). For what little it’s worth, it’s a far-more front-loaded first day than Iron Man 2, which pulled in $51 million on Friday including just $7.5 million worth of midnight tickets (14%), but that was not unexpected.

We’re not looking at a new opening weekend record, as The Avengers pulled in $18.7 million at midnight, $80 million on its first day (also 22% at midnight), and $207 million for the weekend.  But the battle then becomes whether or not Iron Man 3 can surpass the $160 million scored by The Dark Knight Rises last year (probably) and the $169 million scored by Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part II two summers ago (probable but not certain). The Marvel Studios productions have been remarkably consistent in terms of weekend multipliers. Iron Man earned $38 million on Friday (including about $3.5 million worth of Thursday sneaks) and ended up with $102 million for the weekend, which gave it a 2.6x weekend multiplier. The Incredible Hulk earned $55 million a month later off a $21 million opening day for another 2.6x weekend multiplier. Iron Man 2‘s $51 million Friday turned into a $128 million weekend, for a 2.5x multiplier.  Over the summer of 2011, Thor and Captain America had nearly identical opening figures ($25m/$65m) and thus identical 2.6x weekend multipliers.

Last summer, The Avengers parlayed an $80 million Friday (with $62 million of that coming just from normal Friday business hours, a record) into a record $69 million Saturday, and a record $57 million Sunday into a massive and record-smashing $207 million over its opening weekend.  The multiplier?  2.59x… so close!  But even if Iron Man 3 ends up front-loaded along the lines of a The Dark Knight ($67m/$158m = 2.35x), it still gets to $161 million.  I’m presuming it’s not going to be as front-loaded as The Dark Knight Rises and/or a Harry Potter or Twilight sequel, but such a 2.0x multiplier would give it a ‘mere’ $137 million.   But in all seriousness, Iron Man 3 is probably looking at a multiplier around the 2.6x mark, so give it between 2.4x (sequels are usually more front-loaded than originals) and 2.6x for the weekend.  That gives Iron Man 3 an opening weekend ‘prediction’ of between $164 million and $178 million.  We’ll know more tomorrow morning.

BBC Two's The Politician's Husband

The Politician's Husband, BBC Two, review

Jake Wallis Simons reviews episode two of The Politician's Husband, the BBC Two adaptation of Paula Milne's companion piece to her 1995 drama The Politician's Wife.

We were treated to a more sophisticated exploration of moral paucity in the second part of The Politician’s Husband (BBC Two). This was an episode in which every single line was defined by the shocking scene at the beginning, in which David Tennant’s character, the emasculated former minister Aiden Hoynes, raped his wife, Freya Gardner (Emily Watson). The marriage was held together by political ambition, and – appallingly – the violation became old news, then forgiven. But Hoynes had only just got going.

Paula Milne’s writing was exemplary. After the rape, for example, the camera did not linger on the victim, as one might have expected, but the perpetrator. Hoynes sat on the stairs, put his head in his hands and wept. The next morning, his wife reacted by deciding to commit to her ministerial career whatever the cost: “I am done with waiting in the wings.” The stage was set for a monumental and clandestine struggle between husband and wife, all convincingly, subtly, and unflinchingly portrayed.

Usher Prepares for Film Role as Sugar Ray Leonard



Grammy-winning singer Usher believes his dancing skills will help him in his upcoming role as Sugar Ray Leonard in "Hands of Stone," a new boxing film about the great brawler Roberto Duran.

Usher said he has been preparing to play Leonard — a fighter with fast hands, smooth feet and a wide smile — for more than a year and still needs to lose nearly 25 pounds before shooting begins in October.

The movie is based on Duran, a world champion in four weight divisions over a career that spanned five decades. Duran, whose nickname was "Hands of Stone," rose from the slums of Panama to defeat an unbeaten Leonard in 1980 and claim the WBC welterweight title, only to lose the rematch several months later in the infamous "no mas" fight.

Usher said he was honored to play Leonard in the film.

"You couldn't find a more stylized boxer than Sugar Ray Leonard," Usher said by telephone. "He was an incredible motion guy, the way he moved around the ring, and I think my dancing will make it easier for me to pick up his moves. I've been working on familiarizing myself with the ring, sparring and just understanding how to move in the ring."

John Mayer Plotting 'New Record This Summer'



John Mayer's return to the stage this summer will come with a new collection of music, the rocker announced on his Tumblr blog on Thursday -- and not an expanded or deluxe edition of his last chart-topper.

"New record this Summer… Not a Born and Raised 'plus'…," he wrote. "A new group of songs to bring the whole thing up to date with Summer 2013. I have that hunger that always precedes something meaningful."

In a March live session with Billboard, Mayer -- sounding healthy after a struggle with vocal cord issues and surgeries that have kept him from performing in recent months -- played a new song, "Dear Marie," and was looking forward to playing fresh tracks on the road. He'll launch his first tour in three years on July 6.

"I want to make the commitment now, that there's going to be a lot of music going around," he said at the time, adding he'd been working on "open," "acid country" music intended for lengthy stage workouts.

Mayer's 2012 album "Born and Raised," which he was prevented from fully promoting due to his throat condition, marked his third No. 1. It bowed with sales of 219,000.

Beyonce Reveals Marriage to Jay-Z Isn't Glamorous



Beyoncé Knowles' has been married to rap mogul Shawn "Jay-Z" Carter for five years, but she is making it clear that maintaining the union is not as glamorous as everybody believes.
"People just think, 'Oh how glamorous, two celebrities are together,'" Knowles told Britain's More! magazine recently. "No, first of all, a relationship takes a lot of work, but you have to work on yourself ... you have to make yourself happy."
Still Beyonce, 36, has made it clear just how much her 54-year-old husband has changed her life.
"I would not be the woman I am if I did not go home to that man," Knowles told Winfrey on "Oprah's Next Chapter" earlier this year. "And, it just gives me such a foundation. That foundation is so important in a relationship and just to have someone that you just like, you know, is so important and someone that is honest."
In her documentary "Life Is But a Dream" that premiered last February, the singer even described of knowing the reality of God when looking at her husband.
"God is real and God lives inside of me and inside of all of us and it doesn't matter where I am, I know that and I feel it," Beyoncé said in between takes, showcasing her 1-year-old daughter Blue Ivy in the documentary. "Like right now I'm hot– it's a tingling. It's love. I feel it when I look at my child, I feel it when I look at my husband. It's God."
Knowles HBO documentary, "Life Is But a Dream," gave fans an opportunity to hear the singer's thoughts about being married to rapper Jay-Z. The 36-year-old Grammy Award-winning singer opened up about her husband while giving fans a glimpse of their vacation in Venice, Italy.
"It's every woman's dream to feel this way about someone," Knowles said in the documentary.

“Top of the Lake” a stunning seven-part achievement released to Netflix





Writer-director Jane Campion's seven-part miniseries “Top of the Lake” is easily one of the best television dramas of the past few years, a return to form for the New Zealand-born director of “The Piano” and “Sweetie.” It is also a remarkable showcase for Elizabeth Moss, an indication that there are deep dramatic reserves behind the actress' stellar work as Peggy Olson on “Mad Men.” Top of the Lake,” set in a gorgeous mountainous corner of New Zealand, digs into the moral rot beneath the pretty surface. Elisabeth Moss (“Mad Men”) plays a detective who returns to her hometown at the seeming end of the earth when a 12-year-old girl turns up pregnant and then goes missing.

Get Your Hands Off Iggy Azalea + Talks Nas, Kanye & Kim Rumors + "Show with Vinny" Promo



The bombshell rapper has been under a microscope since her first incendiary video. Somehow, she stays cool-headed, even while dealing with seriously alarming onstage situations.

People want to touch Iggy Azalea.

It’s understandable. For one, she’s stunning, her porcelain complexion framed today by a messy peroxide-blond bun, her legs funhouse mirror-long in flowered leggings. And she’s also an oddity: for an Aussie, she raps like she grew up in Atlanta’s Bankhead ‘hood, a style that netted her a heavyweight co-sign from one of the area’s most famous natives, T.I.

[ I got violated on stage and what can you fucking do? (long interview) ]But sitting in a windowless office, divulging uncensored stories and making me giggle like we’re having a grade-school sleepover, another reason becomes clear. In person, she’s impossible not to like.

Born Amethyst Amelia Kelly, the 22-year-old rapper burst onto the scene almost two years ago with the still very dope song “Pu$$y,” a sparse track with water balloon synth bursts accented with tutorial raps. The sun-bleached video sealed the deal. Shot in street gang territory in L.A., the clip attracted both ire and admiration for Iggy. Less than a year later, she became the first female rapper to be included on XXL magazine’s “Freshman” cover, closely associated with Tip’s Grand Hustle Records, signed with Wilhelmina Models and released an EP, Glory.

Since then, every aspect of her life has come under the scope, from her ripe curves and her brief relationship with A$AP Rocky to her leaving Australia for the States at age 15 and her ever-curious label situation.

The latter has been cleared up, at least. In January 2012, she signed to Interscope to release her debut album The New Classic, but just last week announced her move to Island Def Jam, which will release the LP in August. The shift comes on the heels of her latest single “Work” and its saucy visuals, which portray her stripteasing for a dude at the back of the bar as she spits, “Valley girls giving blowjobs for Loubutins, whatchu call that? Head over heels.”

Fresh off tours with Rita Ora and Nas (“[His audience is] like, ‘Woo, we’re having fun,’ but they’re not going to cry and pass out, especially not over me”), Iggy sat down and discussed wardrobe malfunctions, her fear of going bald and how she deals with some seriously disturbing onstage groping.

FREAKS OF THE INDUSTRY

[My first show ever] was crazy. There was this gay boy that was at the hotel and he was like, “I don’t have a ticket” and I was like, “You do have a ticket but you’re too young to get in.” But I was like, “Come with me, I’ll get you in.” So we get this kid in the show. And we walked backstage and all my guy friends are there, and this guy’s like, woo, [rolls her body], having so much fun. I’m like, “Stop doing the worm around a bunch of straight men.” It’s cool, I’ll fuck with you. But you’re making them feel really uncomfortable when you’re doing hip rolls. A bunch of straight, black men are like, “What the fuck is he doing?” I feel like the only thing we’ve picked up now [are] just regular teenagers as well. They’re so normal and I’m so used to seeing the freakiest people in my audience and now I’m slowly starting to see really normal fucking people in there, too. It’s like, okay, cool.

THINGS FALL APART

It’s a bit of a piss take, actually, ’cause I spend more time getting ready in my fucking regular day than I do for shows, honestly, ’cause I’m always in a rush. Show days are rush days and on tour it’s especially that ’cause you will have [just gotten] off a plane. You probably just did soundcheck, which is always running late and then you’re in a rush. And so I kind of cut corners a lot more than I should. Like, usually I do my makeup like a fucking drag queen. Then when I know I’m going to go on stage I’m like, “Oh, in five minutes I’ll be sweaty anyway!” and just be, like, I’m doing eyeliner. I’m fucking putting some lipstick on. I didn’t shave my legs for a week but I’m wearing fucking fish tights and you can’t tell. You’re kind falling to pieces underneath it all, I think, when you’re on tour.

WARDROBE MALFUNCTIONS

The worst ever was in Germany. A fan made me an outfit and it was fine, great outfit. It was a high-waisted skirt and top made of Lycra and it had my Trap Gold mixtape printed on it. I’m like, “I’m going to wear this while I’m on the tour so that he can see it and have pictures and know that I really appreciated him making that.”

People don’t realize, ’cause you can’t tell in pictures, but I never go out barelegged. Like, I wear tights. Two pairs. So with the Lycra and the stockings, it’s slippery. And so I put this shit on and some high heels with it, which I never wear, and I walk out on stage. As I’m taking a step, [the skirt] is just riding up and up and up and I’ve done two songs and the songs are kind of sucking dick because I can’t get into it ’cause I’m trying to work with all this shit.

It really irks me when people wear stuff and they’re pulling their clothes all the time, so on the third time I pulled it down I was like, that’s it, I can’t do another 45 minutes like this! And I was like, rapping and [rapped], “Darren, go get some shorts,” he’s my tour manager.

He runs upstairs, comes back down to the side of the stage with two pairs of shorts, and I’m like, fuck it. I put on the shorts in the middle of the stage. Pulled them up and pulled my skirt down and [the crowd was like] “AHHHHH!!!” Then I was like, fuck, it’s still not good, these fucking shoes! And [I rap], “Darren, go get some boots.”

The other day we had one, too, in Austria. I wanted to wear this skirt that I wear in regular life but it’s really tight across my waist. I wore it to be cute but I couldn’t fucking breathe once I got out there. By the third song I was like, I can’t fucking do it. I ran behind the DJ booth and ripped it off. Then I was like in a leotard and everyone was like, “She didn’t even perform in pants.” No, trust me, I felt very naked, too, but I couldn’t fucking breathe so that’s just what I did. But now there are all the GIFs on the Internet of that fucking night.

[People groping me] happens to me all the time. People try to finger me through my clothes. It’s disgusting. It’s really disgusting. Happened to me in New York last week. I was like, you’re trying to finger fuck me. I used to crowd surf but I don’t anymore. And [at] this show I had a barricade, too, but they broke the barricade and then all the security was on the stage and the barricade was broke. It was crazy. We had to get a police escort into the show and out of the show, especially out of the show ’cause they went ape shit. It was at a college. And it’s late at night and people are drunk and it’s going crazy and they’re trying to finger fuck me through my shorts. I’ll see stuff on blogs all the time, “Oh yeah, Iggy Azalea lets fans touch her butt at the show.” I’m like, there’s no part of my show where I’m like, “Everybody cop a squeeze!” I’m basically getting violated on stage and shit happens and I can’t control it but blogs will always write, “Iggy lets fan rub her butt like a genie lamp.” I saw that one time and I was like, that’s not what happened. What happened is, I got violated on stage and what can you fucking do?

STANS

They don’t really give me anything too crazy. Like, they’ll make me outfits a lot or “Oh, how did you know you’re staying in my hotel and you got me a cake?” I’m just going to make sure I don’t have geotag turned on ’cause you motherfuckers find out my hotel rooms. But it’s never been, like, “I built a person, it’s a mini you!” Somebody dressed up as me and my friend the other day and they were crying. They’re like, “We’re you, we’re you, we’re you in the ‘Bac to 2 Tha Future’ video.”

AFTER THE SHOW IT’S (NOT) THE AFTERPARTY

I don’t smoke and I don’t drink. I might have a glass of wine with food but that’s absolutely it. People will be like, “Let’s smoke a blunt.” I’m like, I don’t smoke blunts. But my DJ’s like, “Don’t tell anyone you don’t smoke because they’re going to stop giving you free weed and then I’m going to stop getting free weed.” After shows, I go to sleep. Talk to people on Twitter and go to sleep, to be honest with you. I like to try to find a picture of the show, a live performance picture and I like to tweet it and then I go to sleep.

ANTI-DIVA

Somebody put salsa dip and chips on my rider in every city. Now it’s like fucking salsa city and I always just end up fucking eating it and I don’t even like this shit.

I have a dressing gown and slippers on [my rider] ’cause I’m obsessed with slippers. When that shows up on the rider, when they did a good job and actually got my rider, then I’m a pretty happy camper.

I do not want to see any lemon flavor. No. I have banana Laffy Taffy so that shows up a lot. Please have a lot of bananas ’cause people think that the banana is the worst flavor but it’s actually the best flavor so I need to make it a point, like, hey banana, I know you think people don’t fuck with it but I fuck with it so please get banana.

THAT PONYTAIL THING

I still do it but I’ve let it go a bit because I just feel like it was making me go bald, to be honest with you. [Laughs] It’s fucking making me go bald. There are only so many times I can tie by hair in an elastic this tight with this much hairspray. People thought I was wearing fake hair. I’m not wearing fake hair. It’s my real hair and it will fall out if I keep fucking doing it all the time. It was fine when I first started because I didn’t have that much press to do and it’s, like, once a week chuck a pony in, cool, no fucking harm done. But every day a pony? I’m fucking going to go bald at this rate.

Rihanna Mocks An Instagram User After The User Critizes Her And Her Family



Rihanna has lashed out at an Instagram user for posting a derogatory remark about her family.

The 'Stay' singer uploaded an image containing a picture of a goat and the user asking her followers to 'spot the difference'.

Instagram user ms_kasharna1 responded to a picture of Rihanna and one of her relatives with "I swear everyone in Rihanna's family looks like they're retarded... Must be the drugs and alcohol!"

Rihanna responded by uploading a new picture on her own Instagram account of a picture taken from ms_kasharna1's profile alongside a goat. The picture was also posted on her Twitter feed, which is nearing 29.5 million followers.

ms_kasharna1 has since deleted all of her photos from her Instagram account, though her Twitter profile also sees her previously attacking the Bajan star.

One tweet reads: "Rihanna looks so dirty!!! Like she hasn't showered in days!", with another saying: "@Chrisbrown would just punch @rihanna in the face again".


LMFAO she deserved it tbh. Would've done the same.

This was the cutest! negl I squealed when I was watching this. I was surprised that Nacho even did this since he always said he didn't believe in marriage.

Prokreayshawn

You'll notice three things when you go through Kreayshawn's Instagram: a picture that says "Who needs swag when you're kawaii as fuck" (valid argument), a cat (which is freaking adorable), and a lot of selfies—specifically ones focusing on the chest upwards. Kreayshawn finally Instagrammed a pic of her from the neck down, which was a shot that revealed her pregnancy. Congrats to her.

'Finding Dory': things we want to see + Plus Fish That Would Make Great Finding Nemo Characters

2

Just keep swimming, just keep swimming ... until Nov. 25, 2015, when "Finding Dory" will swim into theaters everywhere. Ellen DeGeneres announced on her talk show April 2 that Pixar is finally making a sequel to the 2003 animated classic "Finding Nemo." The new film will center on DeGeneres' character, Dory the short-memoried regal blue tang who befriended Nemo's dad Marlin in the original.


"They say I'm one of the top five contenders to play Dory again," DeGeneres joked on her show. She went on to confirm that she would be voicing Dory again, and that she had read the script. "It's hilarious, it's fantastic, it's warm, it's everything you want it to be," she told her audience.

"Nemo" fans know the original film well, and they're certainly hoping DeGeneres is right in her enthusiastic endorsement of the sequel script. Here are seven things we'd like to see in the new flick.

Tom Hiddleston is not The Crow.

‘The Crow’ Flies With Luke Evans



EXCLUSIVE: The Crow will fly with Welsh actor Luke Evans playing the title role in the F. Javier Gutierrez-directed franchise reboot for Relativity Media. Evans was the original choice, but he has been incredibly busy. He was just cast as the lead in Dracula Year Zero, he is the villain in Fast & Furious 6 and is Bard the Bowman in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug. Evans seemed to be unavailable because of production on Dracula and promotion on The Hobbit. The distributor looked at Tom Hiddleston and more recently Alexander Skarsgard, the latter of whom has a bunch of offers after Warner Bros halted Tarzan. Ultimately, they have decided to push the start date to early next year to accommodate his schedule in order to secure Evans, who is currently promoting the release of Fast 6. So hey junket guys, be sure to ask him about it. They are now in negotiations and I expect the deal to make. He seems an ideal fit for the role originated by Brandon Lee, who died tragically during production on the 1994 Alex Proyas-directed revenge story based on the James O’Barr comic book series. He’s repped by WME and United Agents.

Beyoncé and Josh Hutcherson talk getting animated for new film Epic



So many famous people in one film, we're in heaven.

New movie Epic is set to hit cinemas on May 22 and if the story of a teenage girl being transported into a secret universe where she and a group of mystical creatures have to battle the forces of evil in order to save both their worlds ISN'T enough for you, there's also a hell of a lot of famous people lending their voices to sweeten the deal even more.

With celebrities like Amanda Seyfried, Josh Hutcherson, Pitbull, Steven Tyler, Jason Sudeikis, Chris O'Dowd and BEYONCÉ FOR GOODNESS SAKE all taking part, it's probably safe to say that Epic is going to be pretty darn... Oh, what's that word? That adjective beginning with 'e' that describes something huge and ambitious? Oh right, EPIC.

Take a look at the clip below to see what these famous lot think of each other and what they're looking forward to in the upcoming film. We particularly love Chris O'Dowd's honesty. "The only reason I'm here is that I want to meet Beyoncé," he states bluntly. We'd do exactly the same thing, Chris.

Also, the clip is worth a watch purely to see Colin Farrell's latest hairdo. Frightening doesn't even begin to cover it.

Fantasia: Album Sales, Musical Direction, Confidence, Promotional Plans

BILLBOARD: Strong sales and musical identity propel the 'Idol' winner's fourth album.



As the "American Idol" final four tuned up for another showdown recently, season-three winner Fantasia found herself back in the spotlight as well. That's because her fourth album, "Side Effects of You" (19 Recordings/RCA), debuted at No. 1 on Billboard's Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart and No. 2 on the Billboard 200.

The debut positions of Fantasia's latest album resemble the performance of 2010's "Back to Me," which has sold 490,000 copies, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Adding in 2006's "Fantasia" and 2004's "Free Yourself," the Grammy Award winner accounts for 2.9 million albums sold and is the fifth-largest-selling "Idol" contestant behind Carrie Underwood (14.2 million), Kelly Clarkson (12.3 million), Chris Daughtry (6.8 million) and Clay Aiken (5.1 million). Fantasia is also the biggest seller among "Idol" R&B acts.

So what triggered her new album's strong debuts? One factor: Fantasia's resonating performance of lead single "Lose to Win" during her April 18 return to the "Idol" stage. Currently No. 4 on the Adult R&B chart, the track's resulting digital sales spike gave her an eighth top 10-a tally that includes 13-week No. 1 "Truth Is." Fantasia also counts four top 10s on Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs, including the No. 1 "When I See You."

Academy changes rules, opens up Oscar voting to all members

In a move to expand the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences membership's involvement in Oscar voting, the organization announced Saturday during its first general membership meeting that it will allow all members to vote in the foreign language film and documentary shorts category.

This changes the previous rule that required members to see the nominated films in both categories in a theater in order to vote. The academy's board of governors approved a plan that will now allow members to see the nominated documentary pieces in either a theatrical screening or on a DVD.

The announcement was made at a meeting in Beverly Hills at the academy's Goldwyn Theatre and simulcast to locations in Emeryville, Calif., and New York City.
