An excuse to marvel at Zefron's abs

Zac Efron shows off his abs while playing with a basketball on the set of his new flick Townies on Tuesday (May 7) in Los Angeles.

The 25-year-old actor was also seen having some fun with a fake baby and a dumbbell.

Zac was last spotted attending a Lakers game, where the team was defeated by the San Antonio Spurs in the first round of the 2013 NBA Playoffs.

“Zac Efron is incredibly handsome,” Zac‘s Townies co-star Seth Rogen recently shared. “He’s the sexiest [expletive] on the planet!”

Seth added, “I did a scene with him, and we’re both shirtless, and it was a very humbling experience. I marveled at the fact that we’re literally the same species.”

Shakira's style on the Voice:Part 1



The Voice entered the live playoffs last night and you know what that means: flashier sets and costumes for the contestants and judges alike. This time last season we were itching to have a PopStyle intervention with former judge Christina Aguilera who entered the playoffs in American flag pants and pink cornrows that matched a fuzzy fan. How did her replacement, Shakira, step into the live rounds? Read on for the details.

While Shakira’s team hit the stage in elevated metallic and black performance looks, the “Hips Don’t Lie” singer brought the edge from the judge’s chair in a perforated T-shirt by Iro, bedazzled with a Philipp Plein necklace. The all-black outfit also included shorts by Thakoon and a handful of vintage Neil Lane rings.
Of course Shakira’s outfit pales in comparison to Xtina’s blinding live round ensembles, but is that a bad thing? At the very least the new judge’s breathable shirt, which is available to purchase online now, meant she had no need to add a crazy fan.
Tell us: have you been a fan of Shakira’s style this season?

Warner Bros. to Develop New DUNGEONS & DRAGONS Movie



While the current slate of blockbuster movies seem to be all superheroes and sci-fi, Warner Bros. is looking to reboot one of the bastions of swords-and-sorcery stories. The studio is looking to develop a feature film franchise based on the long-running fantasy role-playing game, Dungeons & Dragons. “But wait,” you say, “didn’t someone already try that with the horrendous 2000 movie by the same name?” Why yes they did! Thirteen years is apparently enough of a cooling-off period to warrant another try. It looks like the picture is already fairly far along the road to development thanks to a reworking of an existing script. Hit the jump for more.

Deadline reports that WB is keen on restarting the Dungeons & Dragons film franchise and will attempt to do it with a reworked script from screenwriter David Leslie Johnson (Wrath of the Titans). Johnson’s script for a movie titled Chainmail was based on an earlier version of the RPG from D&D developer Gary Gygax. The story is being beefed up in order to fit a larger world and make a fitting start to a hopeful franchise. Producing the picture will be Roy Lee (The Lego Movie) and Courtney Solomon, who produced the 2000 flop, Dungeons & Dragons. Allan Zeman – also of Dungeons & Dragons … seeing a pattern here? - will serve as executive producer. If at first you don’t succeed, repeat the exact same steps and hope for something different. There’s a definition of insanity in here somewhere…

According to the write-up, the studio is taking the script to filmmakers and is treating it as a big priority with the intention of introducing a whole new generation to D&D.

Nikki Reed designs jewelry for 7 For All Mankind

 photo nikki-reed-7-for-all-mankind-collection.jpeg

With names like James Franco associated with the brand, it's no wonder that Nikki Reed jumped at the chance to collaborate with the denim mavens at 7 For All Mankind. The stunning and super-sweet Twilight actress revealed that hours after getting the call from 7FAM, she was already whipping up sketches based around one of her favorite themes: love. The newlywed (her hubby is singer-songwriter Paul McDonald) definitely has romance on her brain. She recently teamed up with her man by creating and performing original, romantic songs (such as "Now That I've Found You"). But she proves that her creativity doesn't stop at the big screen or via your iPod by hands-on helping 7FAM design a five-piece line of baubles ($48–$84), which are available at 7FAM boutiques and 7forallmankind.com.

The jewelry incorporates sterling silver, Swarovski crystals, and rose gold, and they have thematic names like "Starry Knight Earrings" and "Humility Necklace." We chatted with Reed via phone to discuss how jewelry-making runs in her blood and why we may be seeing her on tour with the Hanson brothers soon.

He and his ex Jennifer Lawrence walked the red carpet separately at Monday night's Met Gala.
And it appears Nicholas Hoult may be moving on from his Oscar-winning former flame.

The 23-year-old was pictured partying into the wee hours with his Mad Max: Fury Road costar Riley Keough, 23, at a Met Gala after party on Monday night, then again with her the following day as the pair moseyed around Soho in New York City.

Meanwhile, Jennifer, 22, was seen jetting back into Los Angeles on her own on Tuesday, looking chic in a black fedora and giant sunglasses.
Nicholas, who split from Jennifer in January after a two-year relationship, walked closely alongside Riley - who is Lisa Marie Presley's daughter - as they browsed some shops in the trendy Manhattan neighbourhood.
The About A Boy star looked stylish in olive green trousers and brown boots, covering his head with a black baseball cap.
The 6ft 2in actor towered over his flame-haired friend, who wore a trendy pair of orange aviator shades and jeans folded at the calf.

Madonna sells $7 million painting for girls' education projects

The singer auctioned off the work of art by French artist Fernand Leger for $7.16 million on Tuesday.


Madonna sold an abstract painting by French artist Fernand Leger for $7.16 million on Tuesday to raise funds for girls' education projects in Afghanistan, Pakistan and elsewhere.
The 1921 painting, "Trois Femmes a la Table Rouge," which carried a pre-sale estimate of up to $7 million, was purchased by an unidentified buyer at Sotheby's Impressionist and Modern Art sale in New York, according to the auction house's website.

The pop singer said in April that she bought the painting in 1990 and that selling it would combine her passions for art and education by raising funds for the Ray of Light Foundation, a non-profit organization offering vocational training for street children and poor farmers.
"I cannot accept a world where women or girls are wounded, shot or killed for either going to school or teaching in girls' schools. We don't have time to be complacent," Madonna said in a statement last month.

"I want to trade something valuable for something invaluable - Educating Girls!"
Madonna has adopted two children from Malawi in southern Africa and plans to build 10 schools there.

The singer originally bought the painting for $3 million.

Leah LaBelle brings all the boys to the yard in the seductive video for “Lolita,” which she defines as a “badass baby girl.” Pharrell and Jermaine Dupri’s protégé plays temptress, casting her seductive spell on the boys in the neighborhood.

“It’s been years… Honestly, probably six years,” confessed Lachey. “It was like another lifetime ago.”

He then answered that the best part about not having Joe Simpson as a father-in-law anymore is that “I don’t have to play grab a** under the table on Easter Sunday.”

X-Men Days Of Future Past in 3D !



Director Bryan Singer has tweeted a picture from the set of "X-Men: Days of Future Past," which is currently shooting in Canada. The set-up is, as singer says, more reminiscent of mission control than a film set thanks to the film being shot in both 3D and Simul-Cam.

Simul-Cam technology has been employed in films like "Avatar," "Real Steel" and "Jack the Giant Slayer" to effortlessly blend CGI and live action footage. You can check out the full picture and tweet below.

So what could they be shooting right now that would require Simul-Cam? Peter Dinklage shot down rumors that he's playing a CGI character, so that's not an option. Judging by the actors that have been photographed on set and their futuristic/post-apocalyptic wardrobe, I'd bet that Singer is currently directing an epic fight between the future X-Men and giant Sentinel robots. The iconic robots have already been revealed as playing a part in the sequel. They're also the main foes faced by the future X-Men in the comic book source material. We can't say this with any certainty, but that's our best guess.

Selena Gomez describes relationship with Justin Bieber as "uncomfortable, crazy and intense"



Referring to the relationship as "crazy and intense," Selena says it was often "uncomfortable" because everyone knew their business. However...

"Justin and I never really focused on the attention. You can't help who you date. So I wouldn't swear off that or say that's what I want again."

It's unclear when this interview was given, of course, meaning Gomez may have spoken to the publication prior to her trip to Norway and rumored reconciliation with Bieber.

The star also touched on "Love Will Remember," a single on her new album that's all about Bieber:

"That's the most personal track on the record, for sure. I think it's a sweet way of releasing it. It's not an aggressive approach to what people are probably expecting," she says, adding of Justin: "I'm sure he'll love it too."

Earlier this week, Gomez released the official video for "Come & Get It." Check it out now and then pick up this issue of InStyle for a lot more from Selena!

Jinkx Monsoon on Gwenyth Paltrow, Anne Hathaway, Winning




The best woman won! After winning season five of RuPaul's Drag Race on Monday, May 6, Jinkx Monsoon is officially America's Next Drag Superstar -- and the witty, campy and sweet drag queen has a few thoughts on other American superstars in entertainment.
"Gwyneth Paltrow -- she always looks like she's about to cry," Jinkx mused to Us Weekly during a post-win visit to our NYC offices. "I wish someone would just kick her and get it over with. But I loved her in The Royal Tenenbaums." The 25-year-old entertainer (real name: Jerick Hoffer), feels more charitable towards another Oscar-winning actress: Anne Hathaway.
Doing a spot-on imitation of Hathaway's tearful rendition of "I Dreamed a Dream," Jinkx admits the actress "had me in tears in seconds" in Les Miserables. "I wanted to hate [the movie] but I couldn't!"


In this exclusive video interview, Jinkx also dishes to Us about how she'll spend the $100,000 she won as Drag Race's victor. "I want to buy something extravagant but practical," she says. "I want a computer that's bigger than my TV at home!"

And, for the uninitiated, the Portland, Ore. native provides a helpful (and hilarious!) explanation of key drag terms used on the most recent season of the LOGO smash, from "fishy," to "peanut butter" to "all T, no shade" to the delightful art of "reading."

Jinkx also sheds light on the beginnings of her drag career ("I've been dressing like a girl my entire life!"), how Sally Jessy Raphael inspired her to seize her "destiny," and why her crush on fellow competitor Ivy Winters was just a "situational romance."

Indeed, she explains, her costars were pursuing "anyone with a d--k" on Drag Race's set. Watch Us' LOL sitdown with Jinkx Monsoon now!

Liam Hemsworth's brothers Luke and Chris Hemsworth staged an intervention to end his engagement with Miley Cyrus, a source tells Us Weekly.

Liam Hemsworth's Brothers Luke, Chris Hemsworth Staged Intervention to End Miley Cyrus Engagement

Oh, brother! Liam Hemsworth's actor siblings, Chris and Luke, were so fired up about the relationship between their little brother and fiancee Miley Cyrus, they staged an intervention with him in April.

"They want him to end the romance for good," a source tells Us Weekly. And apparently their words have made an impact. The couple of nearly four years -- who got engaged last June -- recently stopped making wedding plans and have been spending plenty of time apart.

Take May 1: While the singer, 20, partied at Beacher's Madhouse in L.A., the Hunger Games star, 23, hung out at Chateau Marmont. Though one source maintains the duo aren't done, another insider adds, "Liam's pulling away."

In a recent interview with V magazine, Cyrus explained why she and Hemsworth spend so much time apart. "I'm not home with my boyfriend all the time. We work," she said. "I don't have time go to Starbucks with my boyfriend every morning. I wish I did, but I don't. I'd rather chill at my house and be there for the time I actually get to spend with him. And then I'm at the studio all day. He gets up to work out at six and I come home at five from the studio."

And right now, her new album is her top priority. "I put this record before everything, and I've never done that with anything," Cyrus said. "I've put too much into this record to put anything else in front of it."

"Inside Llewyn Davis" Red Band Trailer



Ahead of its Cannes debut next week, CBS Films has just released a new red band trailer for their Oscar hopeful "Inside Llewyn Davis," written and directed by Joel and Ethan Coen. Typically movies get red band trailers to showcase extreme violence or lewd profanity found in comedies like "The Hangover" and "Bridesmaids." In the case of "Inside Llewyn Davis," you get to witness Carey Mulligan saying "asshole" and go on about condoms -- hardly anything that's NSFW.

The gorgeous-looking drama centers on an aspiring singer-songwriter (Oscar Isaac) who navigates the 1960s folk-music scene in New York City’s Greenwich Village. T Bone Burnett produced the film’s soundtrack, which includes music performed by, among others, Isaac, Marcus Mumford and Justin Timberlake.

Wade Robson: 'MJ Was a Monster & a Sexual Abuser'


The lawyer for famed choreographer Wade Robson tells TMZ, Michael Jackson was a "monster" who sexually abused Wade for seven years as a child ... and threatened him if he ever went public.

Robson's lawyer, Henry Gradstein, tells TMZ, "Last year, on a career trajectory that was off the charts, he [Wade] collapsed under the stress and sexual trauma of what had happened to him for seven years as a child." Robson spent many weekends with Jackson at Neverland Ranch and his other homes in L.A. and Vegas between ages 7 and 14.


Gradstein goes on ... "He [Wade] lived with the brain washing by a sexual predator until the burden of it all crushed him." Gradstein says Michael would tell Wade, "If anyone ever finds out about what we did we will go to jail for the rest of our lives" and “our lives will be ruined forever.”   Gradstein tells us the threats worked, and Wade kept his mouth shut, adding, "This kind of intimidation of a child by a sexual predator is tragically characteristic and effective, keeping them quiet about the abuse - often for a lifetime."

Wade was steadfast for years that MJ did NOT molest him and indeed became Jackson's star witness at his 2005 molestation trial, adamantly denying any untoward conduct. The lawyer says, "Michael Jackson was a monster and in their hearts every normal person knows it."

TMZ broke the story ... 30-year-old Robson has filed a creditor's claim against MJ's estate alleging the singer molested him as a child and asking for damages. Sources tell us ... Wade is claiming the reason he didn't file the claim on time is because he repressed the memories of the abuse.

Gradstein says they have not asked for any specific amount of money in their legal docs, although that's clearly the point of filing a creditor's claim.  He then trashes what he calls "the Jackson money machine" which he says is "at it once again to keep the truth from coming out."  But he says, "This time it won't work."

Absol, Jynx and Sableye to get new evolutions? New Pokemon type???

Since the announcement of Pokemon X and Pokemon Y for the Nintendo 3DS, news about the new pair of games have been anything but abundant. We'll forgive Nintendo for this only because the games won't be released until sometime in October.

Due to the lack of news, many fans have taken matters into their own hands and have come up with their own theories and speculations to keep the fandom alive until the game's release.

Some of the more recent rumors are pretty exciting and include evolutions of your favorites from past games. There's even a rumor of a new Pokemon type! To readers new to Pokemon, the last time a new type was introduced to the games was back in 1999 with the introduction of Steel type and Dark type.

Enough with the text; show me the pretty pictures!

SUPER HOT MAN









Henry Cavill is featured in the June issue of Glamour UK where he talks about landing the role of Superman, getting acting advice from Russell Crowe and addresses rumours once again about the Fifty Shades of Grey movie.

On getting the role of Superman Henry said, "For a guy, it's pretty much the most awesome moment you can imagine."

On rumours he will be in the Fifty Shades of Grey film: "Put it this way, I've not read a script, spoken to a producer or a director."

On nudity: "I'm not a big fan of getting naked for the sake of it. I wouldn't use a body double, because I'm particular about the physicality of acting, but I won't just get my arse out because people are insisting I do."

Iggy Azalea Hints at Rihanna Collaboration 'Designer Drugs'



Iggy Azalea has a few collaborations in store on her upcoming debut The New Classic including one with a global superstar. During her interview with Rap-Up TV, the “Work” rapper hinted that she has a track with Rihanna’s name written all over it.

“Hopefully I would be able to make that stick ’cause I would love to have her sing on my album. Who wouldn’t?” she said of RiRi, who is also signed to Island Def Jam.

She shared more details about the seductive song called “Designer Drugs.” “I actually sung the hook and then I thought, ‘I can think of someone who would sing this better,’” said Iggy. “It sounds like if someone was playing an acoustic guitar, but then you went out into a tipi in the middle of the desert and got really drunk and started hallucinating. It’s a bit warped, but strangely acoustic. I sound like a bit of a phone sex operator on it.”

While Rihanna may not be 100% confirmed, T.I. is. The Hustle Gang chief is set to appear on Iggy’s third single “Change Your Life.”

Paul McCartney: Beatle Swarmed By Grasshoppers

ghopper

The star managed to complete his performance despite being buzzed by a cloud of the insects as he played on stage in Brazil.

Animal-lover McCartney carried on for almost three hours in Goiania as he remained unfazed by the grasshoppers, which even landed on him during the show.

One remained on his shoulder for much of the show and the musician introduced his new pal to the 47,000-strong crowd as 'Harold'.

As he sang Hey Jude, McCartney turned to 'Harold' as he sang the words "the movement you need is on your shoulder", adding "it certainly is now".

The star opened his Out There! tour in Brazil this week and he is due to travel across six countries in the coming months.

His set lists have included rarely performed songs such as Being For The Benefit Of Mr Kite, All Together Now and Eight Days A Week, which he has played live only once before - with The Beatles in 1965.

Bulgaria's Grigor Dimitrov Defeats Tennis World Number 1 Djokovic


Bulgarian up-and-comer Grigor Dimitrov defeated World Tennis Number one, Serbian Novak Djokovic in the second round of the 2013 Mutua Madrid Open.

The Bulgarian, just 21, from the southern town of Haskvovo, saved set point at 5-4 down in the first and another in the tie-break before winning the set.

Djokovic won a second-set tie-break but Dimitrov showed incredible courage to secure the biggest win of his career, BBC reports.

Serbian Djokovic, who won his third title of the year at last month's Monte Carlo Masters, received treatment on an injured ankle midway through the second.

Dimitrov, who beat Javier Marti in the first round, had an injury break of his own and looked physically drained after the second set.

But, with the Spanish crowd chanting his name, he drew on his reserves of energy to break Djokovic in the opening game of the third set and hold on to win the match.

I am posting this because I know a lot of people here don't like Djokovic, but  I am just happy for Grigor and hope that he will continue this way :)

Miley Cyrus Shares London Ghost Story: "It Was Seriously So Terrifying"



Traveling the world has provided Miley Cyrus with a lot of cherished memories—and ghost stories, apparently.

Liam Hemsworth's ladylove recalled an unforgetable experience while on her world tour. She and her family were staying at an apartment in London, which the star claimed was haunted.

"It was seriously so terrifying. It used to be an old bakery and they turned it into an apartment building, and I was having really crazy dreams and really scary things," Cyrus told Elle U.K.

"And one night my little sister—it sounds crazy to tell you—but, she was standing in the shower and all of a sudden I hear her scream. I run in there and the water had somehow flipped to hot but it was still…It wasn't like the water had just changed, the knob had turned but she hadn't turned it and it was burning her. She was really red."

Miley also mentioned that she had witnessed what she thought was a little boy "sitting on the sink watching me take a shower so I felt really freaked out. I was sitting there the next night and maybe I'm crazy, but I could have sworn I could see this little boy sitting there on the sink, kicking his feet."

NBC (Obviously) Cancels 'Deception', Passes On Hatfields & McCoys & Other Pilots




NBC has canceled "Deception" and passed on seven pilots, including the Charlize Theron-produced pilot "Hatfields & McCoys," TheWrap has learned.

A network source initially told TheWrap and other outlets that "Night Shift" was not picked up, but the source later corrected that it is, in fact, still contention

With upfront presentations to advertisers days away, NBC passed on "Hatfields" as well as the Jerry Bruckheimer-produced drama "The Secret Lives of Husbands and Wives"; "Joe, Joe and Jane"; "Drop Off"; "Holding Patterns"; "Bloodline" and "The Sixth Gun." It will unveil its schedule Sunday.

"Hatfields & McCoys" had been a particularly high-profile pilot, with Theron's participation and the popularity of the History miniseries of the same name last year. (The pilot placed the feud in modern-day Pittsburgh.)

Of the 26 pilots NBC ordered this season, 19 remain in contention to become series. They include J.J. Abrams' "Believe" and Jon Bokenkamp's "The Blacklist," starring James Spader, and two shows with "Office" stars, including "Brenda Forever," with Ellie Kemper.

Also read: Network Upfronts 2013: The Scorecard (So Far)

"Deception," created by "Friday Night Lights" alum Liz Heldens, starred Meagan Good and Liz Alonzo, and followed detective Joanna Locasto as she investigated the death of her estranged best friend, socialite Vivian Bowers. Notably, it was one of just two network shows with an African-American woman in the lead. The other is ABC's "Scandal."

"Deception" wrapped its season in mid-March with a finale that scored a 1.3 rating/3 share in the 18-49 demographic most important to advertisers. That was a far cry from the 2.0/5 that the series scored with its premiere. (The premiere numbers themselves were a 51 percent drop from the debut of "Revolution" in the same Mondays-at-10 p.m. time period.)

(Update: NBC has also passed on the pilot "The Secret Wives of Husbands and Wives"; "Night Shift" still in contention, contrary to earlier report)

Does Kristen Stewart need a new career strategy?

When word got out that Kristen Stewart had dropped out of Focus, the movie she was originally going to star in alongside Ben Affleck, Lainey thought maybe she would be a good subject for a career prospectus, and many of you agreed. Thank you for your emails. As a fan of Stewart’s it kind of kills me to do this, but here it is, a career prospectus on Kristen Stewart. This is bound to make pretty much everyone unhappy, as her situation is neither as dire nor as good as you want it to be, depending on how much you hate/like her.

Obviously we’re having this conversation because Stewart made a Poor Life Choice last year and got busted cheating with her director, Rupert Sanders. It’s not the affair itself that’s the problem—if people in the industry got upset every time someone made a dumbass personal decision there would no one left to do any work at all—but rather Stewart’s handling of the fallout has been something of an issue. To determine what’s going on with her career, I asked a talent manager, a casting director, and a studio boss to weigh in on the State of Kristen Stewart.

First and most importantly, she is absolutely still hire-able, and is still a considerable get. In terms of fame, the only peers who come close to her level of famousness are Emma Watson, Emma Stone, and Jennifer Lawrence. Stewart is tremendously famous, having attained the kind of fame that never really goes away (see also: Orlando Bloom).
That is a valuable commodity, “instant advertising” the studio boss dubbed it. Announce Stewart is in your movie and watch the press release rocket through the interwebs, repeated on industry and gossip sites, and mainstream news outlets alike. She’s a lightning rod for attention and that’s a valuable commodity in a crowded marketplace.

So what’s the problem, then? Why has every project she’s announced since the scandal broke last summer fallen apart or, in the case of the Snow White sequel, been put off for at least a year (it’s set for a tentative 2015 release, which means it won’t film until next year—it’s conceivable that Stewart will go three years without stepping onto a set)? The problem, according to the casting director, is one of market share. What, precisely, are we hiring Stewart for? She can carry a studio tent pole, she can do character work in indies, she can be the girlfriend or the lead. That kind of diversity should equate to a variety of projects but that’s kind of the issue—it’s like standing in front of a buffet and not being able to choose an entrée. Stewart hasn’t cornered any one part of the market and is starting to find herself pushed out of all parts.

Almost Famous: She King



If you were ever a fan of Michelle Branch circa The Spirit Room then you're really going to love Shawnee She King, an Aboriginal artist from Toronto who writes stellar pop songs with big hooks, polished production and plenty of vocal power. It came as no surprise to learn that She King's recent accomplishments include being invited to tour with Roxette and Glass Tiger and asked to record a song for a show that'll soon air on the The Disney Channel.

She King's latest single, "Mirror Me", recently hit #1 on Canada's National Aboriginal Countdown Top 40 chart and #1 on my iPod. Check out the music video below. Later this year she'll be releasing a new single and embarking on a tour across Canada and the United States, which will include several Pride events.

How do you describe your music?

My music is all over the place, it depends on the mood I'm in when I'm writing it. It can be serious or quirky but it's always full of life and passion.

What instruments do you play?

I play a bit of guitar and piano. I forced myself to learn when I realized that writing music required it. I mostly only play to write though, it's not very often you'll see me perform with either instrument. One of these days I am going to learn how to play to drums.

Taylor Swift is first woman since Madonna to play stadium shows in Australia



TAYLOR Swift is set to become the first female act since Madonna to play stadium shows in Australia. The pop superstar will tour stadiums in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Perth this December, playing to around 180,000 Australian fans in just ten days. It is the biggest Australian tour by a solo female performer since Madonna's 1993 visit.

Swift's meteoric rise in popularity in Australia has seen her accelerate from club shows in 2009 playing to around 1000 people to stadium venues of up to 50,000 fans just four years later. "It's a sign of the achievements of Taylor Swift and the loyal fanbase she's built up that she will be the first woman to play stadiums nationally here since Madonna," promoter Michael Gudinski said yesterday.

Swift was thrilled with the news. "That's mindblowing and a real honour," the singer, 23, said. "One of my favorite things about the connection between myself and the fans on this tour is that it's a very emotional one. They're there because they've felt the same things I'm singing about at one point in their lives. They're singing all the words. When you look out at a sea of people in a stadium and 60,000 people are singing back to you it's an incredible connection."

Swift's US tour, with collaborator Ed Sheeran as opening act, will wind up in late September. The star will take a break while the production is shipped from the US in time for a show in Auckland on November 29. Swift then plays Sydney's Allianz Stadium on December 4, Brisbane's Suncorp Stadium on December 7, Perth's NIB Stadium December 11 and Etihad Stadium in Melbourne on December 14. Tickets go on sale 9am on May 21, with a presale beginning on May 14.

Swift's latest album Red has sold over six million copies worldwide since its release last year.

How to Cook a Human with Hannibal's Bryan Fuller and Chef Jose Andres


Hannibal is without a doubt the most appetizing scripted show on television, all thanks to creator Bryan Fuller and culinary consultant Chef Jose Andres. The showrunner and chef spoke to TVGuide.com about how they make human meat look so tasty and what sets Dr. Lecter (Mads Mikkelson) apart from your average cannibal.


When Fuller got the opportunity to do Hannibal, Andres was one of the first phone calls he made. In fact, the famed chef isn't just the show's culinary consultant — he helped inspire the small-screen adaptation of the titular cannibal! "I had seen [Andres] talk about food and how passionate he was and articulate he was ... and he had such an enthusiasm that I thought Hannibal Lecter should have a similar passion for food that Jose had," Fuller told TVGuide.com. While most would balk at being compared to a murderer, Andres not only relates to Hannibal (while referencing the last scene in Anthony Hopkins' big-screen Hannibal he mused, "Holy cow, this could be me!"), but believes there's something innate in human DNA that attracts us to blood. "Every time we cut our finger one of the things we do ... is we take the finger to our mouth and kind of we suck the blood," Andres explained. "When I cut it, I'm like, 'Mmm, this is sweet man. I'm tasty!'" (idek, man)

Hannibal airs Thursdays at 10/9c on NBC.

Fox picks fall dramas: Greg Kinnear, Terry O'Quinn series greenlit


The great pilot-to-series deluge of 2013 has begun. Fox just made its drama orders for next season, and the list includes the J.J. Abrams-produced robot cops project (now titled Almost Human) starring Star Trek actor Karl Urban and the House-as-defense-attorney drama Rake, starring Greg Kinnear (As Good As It Gets).


Also getting spots on the schedule: San Francisco crime drama Gang Related, which returns fan-favorite Terry O’Quinn (Lost) to prime-time in a supporting role, and a new take on the classic short story The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, starring relative newcomer Tom Mison. All four dramas contain a mix of procedural and serialized storytelling (Gang Related and Sleepy Hollow are a bit more serialized, while Almost Human and Rake lean more toward case-of-the-week). More obviously, half the titles are set in contemporary times, the other two are set in the future or past.

Madonna works out listening to Xtina, Britney, Missy Elliot, Jay-Z, Frank Ocean & Rihanna


Madonna’s personal trainer of three and a half years, Nicole Winhoffer gave an interview to New York Magazine.
Winhoffer first met Madonna while training backup dancers for the Sticky and Sweet tour in 2009. When the tour ended, Madonna asked Winhoffer to stay on as her primary trainer, and the pair has since co-founded the Hard Candy Fitness brand, which includes a series of DVDs called “Addicted to Sweat.” In addition to Madonna, Winhoffer’s clients include Andrea Riseborough and Abbie Cornish. Read on for more details on Madonna’s workout habits and Met Gala tush.

She explained that she had to make Madonna’s workouts extra butt-specific during the past week to prepare the Queen of Pop for the Met Gala.

NYmag: How long did you spend preparing Madonna for the Met Gala?
Nicole Winhoffer: I knew that the event was on Monday, May 6, so in the week leading up to it, we spent a lot of time on legs and cardio, and particularly on her butt. We kept the room feeling warm, right at 85 degrees, and very humid, to promote sweating, which is good for the skin and circulation and blood flow. I focused on three [specific muscles] of the derriere, and I made sure they were fired during the warm-up, which is about ten to fifteen moves. Then we spent about 45 minutes each day on the toning session, which also focused on legs and inner thighs. We also did lots of cardio, about 35 minutes. We really really tried to burn fat and make sure the skin was tight.

Watch Hologram Feist Play 'How Come You Never Go There' in Three Cities at Once







Samsung beams Broken Social babe into all of the parties.

Goodbye Holo-Pac, hello Holo-Feist. Broken Social Scene matriarch, occasional black metal dabbler, and oak-sturdy solo artist Leslie Feist played in three Canadian cities at the exact same time last night thanks to the latest in holographic technology. Fans in Vancouver, Toronto, and Montreal were treated to simultaneous sets from the singer-songwriter, who materialized out of thin air at the behest of Samsung, as Exclaim reports.

The smartphone giants collaborated with projection company Musion to bring Feist to all three of their regional Galaxy S4 launch parties. Above, you can watch her strum and shred her way through "How Come You Never Go There." While this footage showcases a fairly simple setup, other clips (with terrible sound) display the performer accompanied by a prismatic array of, well, herselves. Meanwhile, the "making of" video below gives insight into the production.

"To get a chance to be a hologram is kind of playing into every childhood fantasy dream of the magic of smoke and mirrors," says Feist in the clip. "[It] really lives up to a lot of my dreams in terms of the things I have been trying to do live for years."

Look at what the light did now.

She is amazing live, so this better not be the future.

Andy Samberg, Seth MacFarlane comedies get Fox series orders

andy-samberg_510x380 (1)

Seth MacFarlane is officially entering the live-action comedy game. The Family Guy creator’s sitcom pilot Dads has been given a series order by Fox, along with four other new comedies, including one starring Saturday Night Live‘s Andy Samberg.

Dads stars Family Guy voice talent Seth Green and Ted co-star Giovanni Ribisi as two best friends whose lives are turned upside down when their fathers move in. The network’s other new comedies include $#*! My Dad Says author Justin Halpern’s latest Surviving Jack (based on his book I Suck at Girls) and a new offering from Parks & Recreation writer-producers Dan Goor and Michael Schur starring Samberg as a lackadaisical detective.

Below are Fox’s confirmed comedy orders with the latest network-provided descriptions:

BROOKLYN NINE-NINE
From Dan Goor and Michael Schur, the Emmy Award-winning writers/producers of “Parks and Recreation,” and starring Emmy Award winners Andy Samberg and Andre Braugher, BROOKLYN NINE-NINE is a single-camera ensemble comedy about what happens when a detective who doesn’t take anything seriously gets a new “by-the-book” boss who wants him to grow up and respect the badge.

DADS
DADS – The new live-action, multi-camera comedy from Emmy Award winner Seth MacFarlane, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, the creatively outrageous team behind “Ted” and FOX’s FAMILY GUY, stars Emmy Award winner Seth Green and Emmy Award nominee Giovanni Ribisi as two successful guys – and childhood best friends – whose lives get turned upside down when their pain-in-the-neck patriarchs (Martin Mull and Academy Award and Emmy Award nominee Peter Riegert) move in.

ENLISTED
ENLISTED is an irreverent and heartfelt military-set single-camera family comedy starring Geoff Stults that follows three brothers getting to know each other again on a small Florida Army base and the group of misfits who surround them.

US & THEM
Based on the hugely popular and multiple-award-winning BBC 3 series “Gavin and Stacey” and starring Emmy Award nominee Jason Ritter and Alexis Bledel, US & THEM is an ensemble single-camera comedy about a young couple, whose path to happily-ever-after is complicated by the screwed-up circus of people closest to them.

SURVIVING JACK (working title)
SURVIVING JACK (working title) is a new single-camera ensemble comedy based on best-selling author Justin Halpern’s semi-autobiographical book, “I Suck at Girls.” Set in 1990s Southern California, Emmy Award nominee Christopher Meloni stars as a man becoming a dad, as his son is becoming a man, in a time before “coming of age” was something you could Google.
