Today the world is celebrating Robert Pattinson's 27th birthday.
But how exactly will the birthday boy and girlfriend Kristen Stewart make this day extra special?
A source tells E! News exclusively the couple will have a big get-together with friends—including, possibly, Katy Perry!—at Kristen's Los Feliz, Calif., home.
From there Rob, K.Stew and their pals will probably go out, says the source.
We certainly hope R.Pattz has a blast as he rings in the big 2-7!
And hey, we don't have any plans tonight. Just sayin'...
The BBC has released promotional pictures from the Doctor Who Series 7 finale, The Name of the Doctor. It airs May 18 in the UK (at 7pm) and North America whilst it broadcasts a day later in Australia, Poland and South Africa.

Bill Hader to Leave SNL
Good Night and Good Luck
By DAVE ITZKOFF
With just one departure, “Saturday Night Live” is losing its excitable “Weekend Update” city correspondent, Stefon; its frenetic incarnations of James Carville, Al Pacino, Vincent Price and Julian Assange; and any number of unctuous, self-satisfied game-show hosts.
All of which is to say that Bill Hader, an eight-year veteran of “Saturday Night Live,” will be leaving that NBC late-night franchise when its season ends Saturday.
“It was a hard decision, but it has to happen at some point,” Mr. Hader said in an interview. “It got to a point where I said, ‘Maybe it’s just time to go.’ ”

NEW YORK — Beyonce is canceling her Tuesday concert in Belgium because of dehydration and exhaustion.
In an email to The Associated Press, the singer's publicist says Beyonce has been advised by her doctors to rest. She was scheduled to perform at the Sportpaleis in Antwerp. The show will be rescheduled and tickets can be used at that show.
Her next tour date is Wednesday at the same arena. The statement says "she is awaiting word from her doctors before making a decision."
Beyonce, 37, launched her "Mrs. Carter Mini Tour" last month in Belgrade, Serbia. It wraps Aug. 5 at the Barclays Center in Brooklyn, N.Y.
Kate Winslet has signed on to star in Jocelyn Moorhouse’s “The Dressmaker.”
Embankment Films is handling international sales and co-represent the U.S. with CAA. The company will commence sales to international distributors at Cannes.
Winslet plays Tilly, an avenging angel who returns home to the remote country town from which she fled as a child after being accused of murder, to make amends with her eccentric mother.

Winona Ryder has kept a fairly low profile over the past decade, especially since her arrest for shoplifting back in 2001 but we have to say she looks pretty amazing on the cover of Interview magazine’s May issue.
In her interview with Interview, the actress opens up about the infamous incident. “I was starting to have some trouble before that,” she says. “I think a lot of people think that that is what sort of sent me off in another direction, but I was actually starting to have some trouble a few years before. And then there were also a couple of movies that I was going to do, that were all set up, and then, at the last minute, they fell apart… And with what happened . . . I was living up in San Francisco and I really needed the time off, which ended up being a couple of years. In a weird way, it was almost like the best thing that could have happened because I’d never asked myself the question before of, ‘Is it okay if I’m not going to act? Is there anything else?’ because that was all that I really knew.”
Acting is notoriously a fickle profession, particularly when you’ve been typecast. Winona talks about her early career and what it meant for later life: “Looking back — and this is all in retrospect — I did have a lot of success and a lot of great opportunities earlier in my career. But I did also have this thing that was sort of happening in my late twenties where, whether it was because of how I looked or because I started so young, even though I was the right age for things, people didn’t think that I was old enough.”

EXCLUSIVE: Allan Cubitt’s new thriller series The Fall, which stars Gillian Anderson (The X-Files) and Jamie Dornan (Once Upon A Time), opened big for BBC Two last night. The series premiered to 3.5 million viewers and a 15 % share in its Monday night 9pm time-slot, with consolidated figures expected to raise that number even higher. With those numbers The Fall easily beat off all competition to win the slot. The impressive ratings also make the series the highest rated drama launch on BBC Two in over 5 years, since the second season of Torchwood debuted in January 2008 with over 3.7 million viewers in the overnights (rising to 4.2 million consolidated).

Carrie Underwood adds a pop of color on the cover of Marie Claire magazine’s June 2013 issue, on newsstands May 21.
Here’s what the 30-year-old entertainer had to share with the mag:
On having kids: “I don’t feel old enough to have kids. I know I am mature. But being responsible for another human?”
On her personality: “I’m not a mushy person at all. We were never a huggy family. Or a ‘let’s talk it out’ family. Technically I have siblings but they are quite a bit older than me – I was the accident – so I have the only-child syndrome going on. I’m a little more selfish, a little more independent, a little closed. I do wish I were softer. I wish I were able to form relationships better. But hey, I mean…I’m not a sociopath.”
On being awkward: “My husband calls me the queen of awkward moments. Anything that can be made awkward, I will make it awkward.”
James Franco is picture perfect as he takes the cover of GQ magazine’s Comedy Issue June 2013!
Here’s what the 35-year-old actor had to share with the mag:
On being able to laugh at himself: “My public persona is something that is only partially constructed by me, so if people want to mock that, it’s fine. I mock it.”
On the possibility of Pineapple Express 2: “As far as why Pineapple Express 2 has not been made for real, I don’t know what the holdup is. I would do it, Danny McBride would do it, Seth Rogen would do it. I think Seth and Evan [Goldberg] just need a fire lit under their asses.”
On his role in This Is The End: “When I first read the script, the James Franco character was — I guess the only way to describe it is he was a lot douchier than the version that we came up with. I was the materialistic guy. They were really playing up the Gucci-modeling aspect of my life.”

While the cinematic return of Arnold Schwarzenegger – former world-champion bodybuilder, former Hollywood megastar and formerly the 38th Governor of California – took the form of last year’s underperforming feature The Last Stand, it was perhaps inevitable that the 66-year-old action-movie icon would return to the big screen. His latest role, however, enters the realm of the truly bizarre.
Arnie will reportedly be starring in a “reimagining” of the 1984 cult flick The Toxic Avenger, but not as Toxie himself. Schwarzenegger will be taking on another, as yet unspecified leading role.
Having made good on his promise to return to the screen after quitting politics, it appears that Schwarzenegger is making no attempt to slow down. He just wrapped production on End of Watch writer-director David Ayer’s Ten, and now we have Variety’s report of his involvement in The Toxic Avenger, a project that’s been around for quite some time, with Hot Tub Time Machine director Steve Pink at the helm. With 80′s-throwback vehicles like The Last Stand (and, similarly, the Walter Hill-directed, Sylvester Stallone-starring Bullet To The Head) pulling in mediocre business at best, it is interesting to see Arnie hitching what remains of his star to something like this.

The magazine business is in trouble, with weekly editors fighting every week to produce dazzling covers to drive sales. However, last week Us Weekly hit the jackpot with its Kim Kardashian baby bump cover.
“The controversial cover appeared to be a random shot, but in fact was staged by Kim,” one magazine insider tells Naughty But nice Rob. “Us paid $80,000 for the exclusive images, but it ultimately paid off as Kim and her baby bump gave them the best selling issue of the year.”
The cover showed a beautiful looking pregnant Kim in a bikini with the headline – “You Call This Fat?” Ironically Kim said this weekend that she hasn’t even thought about selling the pictures of her baby after she gives birth!
“The success of this Us Weekly cover has made all the weekly editors think again about Kim. If a baby bump picture can sell like that, can you imagine how many copies the pictures of the actual baby will sell?”
Once again, it’s Kim’s world and we just live in it! Wink
So, who is the girl with the yellow umbrella?
Her name is Cristin Milioti, a 27-year-old New Jersey actress who’s shown up on Broadway, in films, and on television: The Broadway set will know Milioti as “Girl” in the musical version of Once, a role which earned her a Tony nomination last year; film buffs will recognize her from movies like 2012′s Mike Birbiglia comedy Sleepwalk with Me; and TV fans may remember her from The Sopranos, The Good Wife, Nurse Jackie, or — most notably — 30 Rock.

The morning after Angelina Jolie published an op-ed in The New York Times that revealed her decision to have a double mastectomy, the man in her life is showing his support.
"Having witnessed this decision firsthand, I find Angie's choice, as well as many others like her, absolutely heroic," Brad Pitt said in a statement to London's Evening Standard. "I thank our medical team for their care and focus."
"All I want is for her to have a long and healthy life, with myself and our children," Pitt continued. "This is a happy day for our family."
In her op-ed piece, Jolie described her difficult choice to have surgery because genetic tests showed her to have a high risk of developing the disease. Her mother, Marcheline Bertrand, died of ovarian cancer at 56 in 2007.

There is nothing small about this Sunday night’s Billboard Music Awards at Las Vegas’ MGM Grand Garden Arena airing live on ABC at 8 ET hosted by “30 Rock”’s Tracy Morgan. Just consider for a moment the sheer star power of those appearing: living legends like Prince and Madonna; pop superstars like Taylor Swift, Justin Bieber, Lil Wayne and Bruno Mars; and the next generation of luminaries like Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Miguel, the Band Perry and Ed Sheeran, among many others.
Prince, one of the most inspirational and influential musicians of all time, will perform at Sunday’s ceremony and is being honored with Billboard’s prestigious Icon Award. Other performers include Taylor Swift, Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Bruno Mars, Miguel, Justin Bieber, Pitbull, Christina Aguilera, Selena Gomez, the Band Perry, Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, Chris Brown, Ed Sheeran, Akon, Ne-Yo, David Guetta and Icona Pop.
Madonna will be honored with the Top Touring Artist award, an achievement earned by the worldwide success of her MDNA tour which sold out all of its 88 date run and was 2012's top-grossing tour with $305 million. It's the pop icon's latest chart landmark in a career full of them, including records for Hot 100 top 10 singles (38 of her overall 56 Hot 100 hits) and Dance Club Songs No. 1s (43).
This is the 4th time madonna wins this award. Every tour she's embarked on has become the highest grossing tour of the year; Re-Invention tour 2004 ($125 million) The Confessions Tour 2006 ($194.7 million) The Sticky & Sweet tour ($408 million) and the MDNA tour 2012 ($305 million) all together her tours since 2004 have grossed more than $1.2 billion on ticket sales.
Bieber, Swift and Mars are also vying for the Milestone Award, a fan-driven honor that one voter will get to present at the show alongside Cee Lo Green.
Swift, fun. and Maroon 5 top the finalists at the 2013 awards, with each included in 11 categories. Rihanna competes in 10 categories, including Top Artist against Swift, Maroon 5, Justin Bieber and One Direction, while a pair of younger artists -- Carly Rae Jepsen and 1D themselves -- are finalists in nine and eight categories, respectively.
Billboard Music Awards finalists are based on key fan interactions with music, including album and digital singles sales, radio airplay, touring, streaming and social interactions on Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, VEVO, Spotify and other popular online destinations for music. These measurements were tracked year-round by Billboard and its data partners, including Nielsen Entertainment and Next Big Sound.
So many big starts attending this Sunday! ONTD who are you excited to see?
Last night, The Source Magazine spoke with one of our favorite songwriters, Angela Hunte, on the red carpet for the 2013 SESAC Pop Music Awards at the New York Public Library. Hunte who recently co-wrote Snoop Lion’s “Reincarnated,” and is probably best known for penning Jay-Z’s “Empire State of Mind,” is always in the studio with the biggest names in music. She told The Source that she recently worked with Jennifer Hudson and Ledisi on their upcoming projects, but the session that most peaked our interest was Miley Cyrus!
“Miley is amazing, she is amazing, she was a sweetheart and super professional. She was a pleasure to work with, I had a ball. We had fun. It wasn’t even like we were working, we were just laughing and having a good time with Diplo and its been fun. I’ve been working a lot with Diplo, that’s my boy,” Hunte told The Source exclusively.
So did Diplo just call you up to jam with Miley?
Angela Hunte: Absolutely, that’s what it is. If he’s doing something or he’s working on something he’s like, “Hey Angela come through I’m working on it” and he was like “I’m getting ready to do a record with Miley, why don’t you come to the studio?”
This new Miley Cyrus album is probably the most anticipated project of the year!
Angela Hunte: Let me tell you something, I heard some of her records and it’s f*cking incredible! I was completely shocked. I can’t believe it and it’s not forced it doesn’t sound like they forced Miley to be this person she’s not, it’s her just with a brand new sound!
The Mike Will Made It produced Miley Cyrus album still does not have a release date, but Hunte is positive the project will blow your mind.
Saldana is back on the market after splitting from Bradley Cooper earlier this year, but don't expect to see her dating another Hollywood star. When it comes to dating actors, Saldana tells the magazine, "Been there, done that, got the T-shirt."
In fact, the actress may not want to continue dating men at all. "[I might] end up with a woman raising my children," she says of her sexuality. "That's how androgynous I am."
But one thing is for sure, when Saldana finds someone she wants, she won't second-guess it. "If I have something good in front of me, it doesn't matter if it's a person or a pair of shoes, I'm not going to test something else," she says. "It's insecure and it's immature."
Saldana is anything but insecure. The actress, whose late father Aridio was Dominican and mother Asalia is Puerto Rican, tells the magazine that she has a deep sense of pride in her ethnicity.
"It doesn't matter how much backlash I will get for it," she says, "I will honor and respect my black community because that's who I am."

Fresh Meat will air its third series in the autumn.
The returning Channel 4 comedy will follow JP (Jack Whitehall), Howard (Greg McHugh), Vod (Zawe Ashton), Oregon (Charlotte Ritchie) and Kingsley (Joe Thomas) as they begin their second university term.
Josie (Kimberley Nixon) is in Southampton, away from her old housemates but in contact via iPad, when the new eight-part series opens.
In her place comes a new housemate - fresher Candice, who catches JP's eye - while Vod also returns from her travels with a "new Mexican beefcake lover" named Javier.
Objective Productions' Head of Drama and co-exec producer Judy Counihan said: "Our fabulous gang of six returns to navigate their second year; no longer freshers, but eager as ever to experience uni life to the full and beyond – and there's an unsuspecting newbie to educate, too."
Roberto Troni, drama commissioning editor, added: "We're thrilled to have the Fresh Meat gang coming back to Channel 4 for a new academic year and a new series. Sam & Jesse and our brilliant cast return once again to remind us of those excruciatingly awkward yet seminal uni days, in their inimitable and hilarious style.
"The residents of Hartnell Avenue may be a year older but - thankfully - they're none the wiser, as they deal with new responsibilities, new housemates and new loves, heartbreak, heartache and few unwanted blasts from the pasts."
Filming on the new series of Fresh Meat begins next month in Manchester.

NEWTOWN, Conn. (CBSNewYork) — Sandy Hook Promise, a non-profit organization founded following the Newtown school shootings, has created a limited-edition nail polish to show support for the victims.
OPI manufactured the polish called “Sandy Hook Green” and donated 10,000 bottles to the organization.
The polish is not for sale, but will be given out this weekend to people who donate $10 to Sandy Hook Promise during a Salon-a-Thon event at Ricci’s Salon and Spa in Newtown on Sunday.
Two mothers whose children survived the attack came up with the idea after each had their nails painted green at a local salon as a way to cope with their grief.
On Dec. 14, gunman Adam Lanza, who had killed his mother at their Newtown home, went to Sandy Hook Elementary School and opened fire with an assault rifle, killing 20 children and six educators. He killed himself as police arrived at the school.
After the shootings, many wore ribbons made up of the school’s colors, green and white, to show support for the victims. Green has now also become a symbol for the gun control movement.

After losing a legal dispute over the name of their beauty brand, Khroma, to a Florida-based company called Kroma Makeup, the Kardashians have had to rename their line. They thought long and hard, probably talked for hours, consulted their mom, and finally decided on Kardashian Beauty. Let's face it, that should've been its title from the start. The brand's license-owner, Boldface, is obviously thrilled to put all this Khroma/Kroma business behind them. From WWD:
“Boldface, along with Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian, are looking to the future and see this change as a positive move forward,” said Nicole Ostoya, chief executive officer of Santa Monica, Calif.-based Boldface. “We’re confident that it’s not the name that matters to our fans, but the Kardashian sisters’ commitment to making this line a true reflection of their love for cosmetics."
Apparently not content with its reign over drugstore magazine sections, the Kardashian name will invade the makeup aisle soon as well. Expect its arrival in Duane Reade, CVS, and Sears in about two to three weeks.
ABC is the third broadcast network to unveil its 2013-14 schedule and the big news is that Joss Whedon’s much-hyped Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has landed on Tuesdays at 8/7, where it will kick off an all-new lineup.

Those madcap galoots, Capt, James T. Kirk (Chris Pine) and “Bones” McCoy (Karl Urban), are trying to escape a band of chalk-faced aboriginals on the Class-M planet Nibiru. Having broken a Starfleet rule by intervening in a prehistoric civilization, they run for their lives, like Bob Hope and Bing Crosby high-tailing it out of Zanzibar after one of their schemes went kaflooey. Reaching a cliff, with the natives in angry pursuit, Jim and Bones leap desperately toward the water far below. Now they’re Butch and Sundance, in every way except for yelling, “Sh——–t!” as they plummet to safety. They’re just one Enterprise crew member short of being the Three Stooges.
Actually, Moe — Mr. Spock (Zachary Quinto) — is trapped nearby in an erupting volcano, its spewing lava reminiscent of the kitsch special effects from the 1940 One Million B.C., but in 3-D and gaudy color. Kirk, back on the Enterprise, ignores another Starfleet dictum and flies into the inferno to rescue Spock; the primitive Niribuans gape at the spacecraft with the same perplexed wonder as the apes at the 2001 monolith. When the Enterprise returns to Earth, Rear Admiral Christopher Pike (Bruce Greenwood) demotes Kirk to the Academy and separates him from Spock. Pike might be an exasperated homeroom teacher forced to keep two troublemakers apart — or a father regretting that he gave his reckless teen son the keys to the starship.

The ever-candid James Deen says the experience of working with Farrah Abraham makes working with Lindsay Lohan feel like a walk in the park.
Lindsay‘s leading man in The Canyons had been critical of the star for her diva-like attitude and acting like a child on set, but well, that was nothing.
At least compared to the Farrah Abraham sex tape drama.
James, the man LITERALLY behind the star in Farrah Superstar: Backdoor Teen Mom, explained that he couldn't have predicted what a fiasco that became.
“Honestly, after this whole experience I really do miss Lindsay,” Deen said. “I’ve been taught that a movie star and reality star are very different."
"And I just straight up miss Lindsay. She's awesome.”
James hasn’t spoken with LiLo about her recent legal troubles or court-ordered 90 days in rehab, but he wishes her well regardless of any of that.
“I haven’t spoken to Lindsay in a while. So I don’t know what’s going on in Lindsay’s life,” he said. “But she’s amazing and I hope she does well.”
ABC’s entertainment chief Paul Lee was asked the Why? question during a conference call with reporters Tuesday morning: Why did the network dump Happy Endings? One reporter challenged the idea that the comedy wasn’t “on brand” for ABC, noting that two of the network’s newly greenlit comedies for next season, Super Fun Night and Mixology, feel like they’d be perfect companions for Happy Endings.
“I do think Happy Endings is absolutely on brand,” Lee said. “What we found was it was just too narrow. It was a very hard decisions because, as you know, I love that show and I found it very hard to make that decision. On the same token, I think Super Fun Night and Mixology are broader shows that will bring in a wider audience. So: Hard decision, not happy at all to see it go, but we feel it was on brand and so is [Super Fun Night] and Mixology.”
ABC declined to pick up the comedy for a third season before its upfront presentation to advertisers (along with some other comedies like Family Tools and Malibu Country). Happy Endings averaged 4.6 million viewers and a 1.9 rating among adults 18-49 this season, though it dropped below a 1.0 in the overnights after the network moved the show to Friday nights. The show is currently being shopped to USA Network, so there’s still a possibility that it could live on.
Lee also addressed the canceling of Body of Proof, which is being shopped to cable. “We had a very strong season in terms of [new series] development,” Lee said. “I would love to see Body of Proof find a good home for itself.”

There's nothing like having a bundle of joy that truly does bring you a bundle of joy!
This past weekend was Mother's Day weekend, and during a Mother's Day event in support of her Shawn Carter Foundation on Saturday March 11, Jay-Z's mom Gloria Carter revealed how much of a softy her son is when it comes to his own child, Blue Ivy.
"It warms my heart to see how he interacts with his daughter," she told Us. "And when she says, 'Papa,' he just melts. He's a great dad."
Mama Carter also added:
"The amazing thing about being a grandmother is that you go get the kids, but when you're tired, you can take them home."
She even divulged that baby Blue is "very, very smart," so smart in fact, that when she's tired of you, she'll just say "Bye, Bye!" It means you're going to disappear.
Gloria Carter's own "baby" right now happens to be the Shawn Carter Foundation, which provides scholarship money for kids who have low GPA's, and wouldn't be able to fund an education otherwise.

3rd Oscar nom on the way
Adam Brody has been cast in Think Like A Man Too, the sequel to the 2012 comedy that is based on American funnyman Steve Harvey's relationship book Act Like A Lady, Think Like A Man. The Lovelace actor will transfer his skills to the comedic realm in the sequel to Screen Gem's 2012 comedy Think Like A Man.
The features are based on a best-selling relationship advice book written by American funnyman Steve Harvey. According to Deadline, Adam will portray a man named Isaac, who is the former frat brother of comedian Kevin Hart's character Cedric. Everyone in their gossiping milieu is surprised by their relationship, as they seem to be an odd couple.
Writers of the original screenplay Keith Merryman and David A. Newman will also pen the next instalment. Think Like A Man Too is set for a June 2014 release.
Adam will next appear in Lovelace opposite Amanda Seyfried, Peter Sarsgaard and James Franco. He portrays porn star Harry Reems in the dramatic biopic due out in the US next month.
Adam has a number of other comedies to reach theatres in 2013. He also takes on roles in Baggage Claim and Growing Up and Other Lies, both due out later on this year.

Get ready for a double dose of "Once Upon a Time" next season with ABC introducing the spin-off, "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland," for which the network released promotional photos on Tuesday, May 14.
In "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland," Alice (Sophie Lowe) in Victorian England tells the story of a strange new land that exists—where else?—on the other side of a rabbit hole where you can find an invisible cat, a hookah-smoking caterpillar and playing cards that can talk. Doctors think she's crazy and try to "cure" her with a treatment to forget it all. While she may be ready to forget it all, put everything, including the genie she loved and lost, Cyrus (Peter Gadiot), she knows it's all real, and she is saved just in time by the sardonic Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha) and irrepressible White Rabbit (John Lithgow).

“It was a dream of ours to get some kind of a ticket price scheme that would open up the opportunity for more people to come to the theatre, to take a risk,” says STC’s Artistic Director (and lbr luckiest man in the world), Andrew Upton.
“I think that the price point is a deterrent for some people, particularly people who aren’t in the habit of going to the theatre, and it’s a chance to knock that on the head.”
Called the ‘Suncorp Twenties’, the ticket scheme was made possible by corporate sponsorship. Suncorp CEO, Geoff Summerhayes, said that “the theatre, the arts, are an incredibly important part of having a vibrant community and they add to the vitality of the city.
“If through this initiative we can get access for more members of our community to the theatre, which they otherwise wouldn’t have been able to get, then we’re very proud to be associated with that.”
Actor Cate Blanchett recognises it’s a partnership that not all theatre companies could form. “It’s an incredibly optimistic initiative, and not every organisation has the same ambitions, so we’re just really lucky that we have aligned with a company with similar community engagement and interest in building audiences for the future”.

Reporter, who is battling breast cancer, says Jolie's revelation was "helpful," but women battling metastatic disease are "brave"
Revealing? Sure. Helpful? Maybe.
But "classy" and "brave"? I don't think so.
I woke up this morning and groaned at the headline glaring from my iPad. Not at Angelina Jolie's decision to have a prophylactic double mastectomy — that was smart and right — but at the reaction to her choice to go public with such a personal decision on the op-ed page of The New York Times, the highbrow equivalent of the cover of People or the 8 a.m. hour of Today.
I immediately thought of an interview I had with Edie Falco just a couple months ago. We talked about, to paraphrase Jolie, her medical choice — to keep her breast cancer diagnosis a decade ago private.
"When I was going through my treatment, I didn't tell anybody," she told me. "Because I don't want that. I don't want anybody's pity. I've been through it. I'm strong. I have access to the best doctors because I'm on a TV show. I mean, ridiculous good fortune is all around me."

Maybe this is the real reason Beyonce cancelled tonight’s concert in Antwerp, Belgium?
A large photography group that services multiple news organizations has gently informed Beyonce’s camp that they will blacklist Beyonce if she doesn’t lift the ban on photographs taken during her Mrs Carter world tour.
In a letter sent to Beyonce’s camp, an attorney for the National Press Photographers Association (NPPA) pointed out that the ban imposed by Beyonce on photographers has resulted in the proliferation of “prank” photos of Beyonce that are “far more unflattering” than the ones that have gone viral.
The NPPA attorney writes: “Ending the ban is more likely to result in publication of fair, objective and mutually beneficial photographs that serve your interests and ours.”

BEVERLY HILLS COP (CBS)
Pitch: Continuation of the movie franchise, centered around Axel Foley’s police officer son (Brandon T. Jackson), who takes down the criminal elements of the rich and famous in Beverly Hills.
Why It Should Have Worked: Based on a hit film, with original star Eddie Murphy making occasional appearances and it’s a crime procedural — that must be perfect for CBS. Right?
Why It Didn’t: We’re told the show felt “retro.” Like, “too retro and not in a good way.”

Wes Scantlin, the frontman for Puddle of Mudd, was arrested yesterday afternoon and accused of getting far too physical with his ex-wife.
According to TMZ sources, authorities were stopped by a business in West Hollywood around 3:30 after someone called and said Scantlin violently shook his ex and then attempted to drag her around.
Deputies reportedly talked to witnesses and to the victim and gathered enough information to arrest the artist for domestic violence.
"He was very mouthy," an insider told TMZ of Scantlin's behavior during the arrest.
In September, Scantlin was booked at an airport in Texas after drunkenly getting into it with a flight attendant.
He was taken into custody yesterday and held on $20,000 bond.
"The Reluctant Fundamentalist has this scene which I guess will go down iconographically in cinema history with the first character to look at the 9/11 attacks," said film critic Jason Solomons. "There he is pictured looking at them ... kind of being on the side of the aggressor."
"In that moment, I should have felt sorrow or anger," Changez says in the movie. "But all I felt was awe — what audacity."

The Wrap reports Will Smith is in talks to star and produce a reboot of Sam Peckinpah's classic 1969 Western The Wild Bunch. Where the original was set in 1913 and focused on a leader of a group of outlaws who decides to go for one final score, the remake would be set in the present day and follow a "disgraced D.E.A. agent who assembles a team to go after a Mexican drug lord and his fortune." A reboot has been in the works for a while now, with Tony Scott most recently attached. The new version is still looking for a writer, director, and the rest of the DEA agent's gang, because otherwise it wouldn't be that wild or that much of a bunch.
The Cowsills were the first family rock band. Their hits “The Rain, The Park, And Other Things” “Indian Lake” and “Hair” topped the charts in the 1960′s.
TV’s “The Partridge Family” was based on the singing Cowsills, whose Mom, Barbara (like Shirley Jones), was part of the band. The Cowsill have a critically acclaimed documentary “Family Band” which has played film festivals and airs on Showtime.
“Family Band: The True Story of The Cowsills” is both a heartwarming and tear jerking masterpiece which shows the teen Cowsills grow up and struggle with life “after pop music stardom.”
4 of the original Cowsills, led by brother Bob, still perform shows together, singing harmonies with their own kids in the band. Their album from the 1990′s “Global” is a true gem and caught the attention of Tom Hanks recently who also was highly moved by their documentary.
Hanks, who did the film “That Thing You Do!” about a fictitious 60′s pop group is now developing a theatrical movie on the Cowsills story
But Belgian fans found these tweets. Can we conclude that Beyonce will also cancel her show for tomorrow?
lol idk what is going on. lots of my friends on FB started posting these tweets, they had been waiting for hours earlier today for tonight's show (which got canceled just a few hours before the start of the show.) Then again, Cannes is not THAT far from Belgium and she could easily have made it if she performed tonight and rescheduled tomorrow's show.

Tonight’s season finale of New Girl finds a special invitee at Cece’s wedding: Taylor Swift, who plays a guest named Elaine. (Will Elaine burst into “Speak Now” during the ceremony? We’re still betting on it!) The reigning country-pop star, whose last onscreen role involved sucking face with Taylor Lautner for most of Valentine’s Day, descended on the sitcom’s Los Angeles set in late April to shoot her top-secret scene. To find out what this visitation was like, Vulture called up Max Greenfield, professed T. Swift expert (according to Jake Johnson, anyway). According to him, though Swift was on set but for a few hours, her impact on him will last a lifetime. The following, in his own ecstatic words, is his account of their blessed day together:
Let me start by telling you something. When my publicist said, “Vulture wants to talk to you about Taylor Swift. Did you want to talk about that or the show?” I was like, “Are you kidding? I only want to talk about Taylor. It’s about time someone asked.”
I had heard rumblings that an offer was out to her a while ago, and I remember thinking to myself, I wonder who we’ll end up with? Because there’s no way she’ll do it. I mean, can we make an offer to someone more reasonable? Because when she passes two days before we shoot, it gives us a very limited time to find someone. But then! Then I start hearing, “She really loves the show and wants to do it.” I still thought, Well, she’s not gonna say she doesn’t love the show. She’s Taylor Swift. She’s America’s sweetheart. She’s not gonna say, “I’m not a fan of that type of comedy.” And then out of nowhere, she says yes! And I’m thinking to myself, This is a real game-changer. I’m not joking around. We’re gonna have serious ratings that night regardless of the wedding. Like, who cares about the wedding now? Taylor’s coming!

The Los Angeles Police Department have launched an official investigation after an obsessed fan bombarded Ashley Tisdale with more than 18,000 Twitter messages, and then showed up at her home. The 27-year-old actress was said to have been 'freaked out' after receiving 18,888 tweets from the stalker dating back to 2012. TMZ reports the LAPD have now launched a probe into the situation, and have already identified a potential suspect.
The mystery tweeter, who is believed to be a man, bombarded the High School Musical starlet with a series of creepy messages, which seem to insinuate that he is in some form of relationship with her.
One said: 'Let it all out on me u can have my heart put a lock on it throw away the key & my soul is yours to keep.'
Another added: 'My body is yours & even as friends I f****g love how I make u feel like mom maybe we both got issues cuz nobody’s perfect.'
A further message stated: 'I’ll never lose u baby even in 20 years til infinity you’ll always b my best friend.'
The obsessive stalker is even believed to have turned up at Ashley's Los Angeles home, but it is not known whether he was able to make contact with the former Disney star.
Police have since identified a suspect, and are now looking to talk to the person in question to identify whether they pose a serious risk to the Hollywood starlet or not.
MailOnline has contacted a representative for Ashley Tisdalde for comment.
In spite of the drama surrounding her personal life, Ashley seemed to be in good spirits as she took to her Twitter page on Monday, writing: 'Don't stop. Get it get it #happymonday.'
Ashley has been dating Annie Automatic rocker Christopher French since late 2012, and recently cited 'communication' as the key to the success of her current relationship.
She said: 'I'm definitely old-school when it comes to dating. I'm not into the 'game' so much. If I like you, I'll confront you and be open about it. Then I expect you to come after me.
'Communication is so key. Especially in this business, I'm always traveling and doing something else. So I think communication is the foundation of it all.'
This year marks the 20th anniversary of Power Rangers. With Saban aquiring the rights back, people thought Saban will fix power rangers. Turns out the opposite has happened. The current series Power Rangers Megaforce will be split into two seasons (to catch up to the 25th anniversary) It will be adapting two Super Sentai series. Power Rangers Megaforce is based off Tensou Sentai Goseiger, while it's second season Power Rangers Super Megaforce is based off Kaizoku Sentai Gokaiger where the rangers get "power ups". Gokaiger is unique that, previous rangers throughout the 35 previous Sentai series, previous actors and actresses have reprised their roles due to the Gokaiger having the ability to transform into previous Super Sentai Rangers. This is what is suppose to happen in Super Megaforce but Saban has been too cheap to let that occur.
Previous Power Ranger actors have gotten e-mails asking them to reprise their role and come to New Zealand ti film for two days. Then the next week Saban e-mailed them again telling them they do not have enough funds for them to come or in some cases never got an e-mail or a response.

Country star talks about 'uninterrupted' meet-and-greets with fans during his Coffee House Experiences.
By Jocelyn Vena
A lot of musicians hold meet and greets, but Hunter Hayes has found a way to really get the conversation brewing with his fans. Hayes, who is currently on Carrie Underwood's Blown Away Tour, hosts a Coffee House Experience before each of his shows, giving fans an intimate meeting with the 21-year-old singer.
In the latest episode of CMT's "For the Love of Music," Hayes took fans behind the scenes of these gatherings. And from the looks of it, he doesn't hold much back. "I like hanging out with guys and just spending time," he said. "We can do whatever we want."
He began the meetings two years ago, and he wanted to keep the tradition alive, even as he plays bigger and bigger venues and arenas. He describes the coffee house as a "sacred ground." "This was the time of the day that we kept unscheduled, uninterrupted. We can just chat for however much time we have here. It's not rushed. It's not quick. We can talk. We can laugh... ask questions," he told his fans at one of the stops. "It's all you."
Hayes has tour dates slated right through August, and in June, he'll perform at the CMT Awards where he is also a nominee. The "I Want Crazy" singer will drop his new album, Encore, on June 18 the same day he plays New York's Webster Hall as a part of MTV's Artist To Watch live series.
Chris Evans, star of the upcoming "Captain America" sequel, made an appearance on the National Mall Tuesday, shooting scenes for the upcoming movie with costar Anthony Mackie.

Arrested Development': On the scene at New York's banana stand with Terry Crews
There’s always money in the banana stand — especially when it’s located at the end of a long, long line filled with hungry Arrested Development superfans.
The Bluth family’s Original Frozen Banana Stand is currently wrapping up its second day in New York City, having launched its stateside tour in Manhattan yesterday. The stand started serving frosty confections at noon, though would-be customers began lining up even earlier than that. (One pair told EW that they had arrived at the stand at 11:40; 45 minutes later, they were still waiting, albeit fairly close to the front of the line.)
By 12:30ish, the line stretched from Columbus Circle to 62nd Street and Broadway, broken only occasionally so that it wouldn’t block access to buildings like the Trump International. A line-tender dressed in a gigantic banana suit handed out “Mr. Manager” stickers to those just joining the pack and estimated that they’d likely be waiting an hour or longer before getting their hands on Giddy-Girly Bananas, George Daddies, or Simple Simons.

Ferrera herself shared the happy news on Twitter. "I'm walking in my college graduation in 3 days from @USCDornsife!" she tweeted on Tuesday, May 14. "It's finally happening! Took me 10 years, but it feels great."
In response, USC Dornsife -- a.k.a. the Dana and David Dornsife College of Letters, Arts, and Sciences -- offered its best wishes to the star. "Congratulations! You've worked hard to get to this moment," a tweet on the Dornsife account read. "Enjoy it! #fighton #TrojanFamily #uscgrad."
One of the biggest duels underway in Hollywood right now is the one between Marvel and DC: two powerhouse comic book companies battling it out for supremacy on the silver screen. Marvel has put out a number of noticeable hits the past several years with films like Iron Man, Thor, and Captain America, while DC has relied heavily on their prize fighter Christopher Nolan and his Dark Knight Trilogy to keep them relevant. But what's made Marvel so successful since the release of Iron Man in 2008 is the universe that they've created for their characters; a universe that culminated last year with The Avengers.
The Avengers seemingly delivered a knockout punch to DC by giving fans a universe we'd only seen in the comics: where every superhero and villain existed on one plane. DC is now scrambling to keep pace, looking to create a Justice League film to rival that of their studio counterpart. There have even been rumors that Christian Bale may come back as the Dark Knight and fight alongside Henry Cavill's Man of Steel Superman.

Imagination Station Detroit's RoboCop statue project is almost upon us, and it has revealed some magnificent photos of the work-in-progress statue.
Detroit served as the setting for Science-Fiction epic RoboCop. This garnered a lot of mixed reactions for the city. On the one hand, it didn't help Detroit's stereotype of being a haven for violent crime and terrible people. On the other hand, RoboCop is awesome. So it should come as no supprise that when Detroit's Mayor asked for ideas on how to revitalize the city, a giant statue of RoboCop himself was one of the top suggestions. After he shot down the suggestion, angry citizens took to crowd funding platform Kickstarter to fund the project themselves.
The Kickstarter reached its funding goal back in 2011, and Imagination Station Detroit has been providing procedural updates on the progress of the statue since then. It has now finally revealed an almost-completed version of the statue.
"There's really nothing to say," said the team in a statement accompanying the photos, "Just take a look at RoboCop in his 10-foot-tall pixel-atom-perfect glory. So far he's passed from you, the backers, to Fred Barton's expert custom sculpting, to Across The Board Creation's 3D scanning, digital enlarging, physical fabrication, and assembly in foam, wax, clay, and steel (pictured below), and now he's headed to Venus Bronze Works in Detroit for casting and manufacturing in bronze. We bow to all parties for going above and beyond."
Behold, Detroit's soon-to-be RoboCop statue in all its glory:

Despite reports last week from THR and Variety that Joe Wright was the front-runner to direct the upcoming "Fifty Shades of Grey" adaptation for Universal and Focus Features, Deadline.com's Mike Fleming has shot down the idea with the site's signature "Toldja!" Per Fleming, Wright's schedule "doesn't work" with the "Fifty Shades" time frame; Universal chairman Adam Fogelson told THR back in February that the adaptation of E L James' best-selling S&M novel could arrive in theaters as early as next summer.
"I will tell you that it is an absolute priority for us," Fogelson said.
Fleming initially threw cold water on the trade reports hours after they published on Friday, writing that the news was "bullsh-t." His Monday update on the story noted that film journalists are "spinning rumors based on little more than preliminary conversations." Indeed, they are: Last June, Fleming posted a story about Angelina Jolie's potential involvement as director of the film on Deadline.com with the headline "'Fifty Shades Of Grey' Heating Up With Angelina Jolie Talk."
"I've heard rumors about the possibility of Angelilna Jolie having a conversation or two about directing it," Fleming wrote at the time, before adding that no official negotiations had taken place. THR, for its part, noted that the conversations Jolie had with the studio about "Fifty Shades of Grey" were not necessarily "real."
For more on Wright and the rumor that he could have directed "50 Shades Of Grey," head over to Deadline.com.
Afraid of heights? Let’s just say you probably wouldn’t make it in Dauntless.
The highly anticipated adaptation of Veronica Roth’s best-selling Divergent is still filming in Chicago, but EW has gotten this exclusive first look of Tris (Shailene Woodley) out on a ledge and perched to jump as part of initiation into her faction. For those of who haven’t read the books, in the dystopian world of Divergent, all of society is divided into five factions: Abnegation (selfless); Erudite (intelligent); Candor (honest); Amity (peaceful) and Dauntless (brave). Our heroine, sixteen-year-old Tris Prior, has chosen the Dauntless faction which involves a lot of very scary initiation tests—like the time she stood still while knives were thrown at her head.
“In this photo she’s already jumped off the train and onto a seven story building as part of the initiation rite for the Dauntless,” explains director Neil Burger. “The next thing they have to do is jump from the building and down through a courtyard that has a deep, black hole. It’s terrifying.”

"Elaine's Big Day" wasn't the best episode of New Girl Season 2, but it was an appropriate note to end the year on: this is now a fully realized, confident, and consistently hilarious show that knows exactly what it is.
It stands in stark contrast to New Girl Season 1's season finale, which explored similar issues (choosing the right mate, making enormous life decisions, Nick's near-bottomless inner well of self-loathing) in a profoundly less satisfying way (coyote mind-meld? Really, Season 1 Jess??).
What a difference a year makes, huh? New Girl Season 2 has finally figured out what its real strengths and weaknesses are, and I feel the kind of zeal for this show that only a convert can truly have.
So, it was only fitting that a season marked by the visionary marriage of over-the-top physical comedy and mundanely relatable romantic issues conclude with both Jess and Nick trying to over-think their way out of their relationship AND a wild badger running loose at a wedding. Hey, we're modern women! We can have it all! Lean in (to badger jokes)!
Speaking of Jess and Nick: nothing shows the distance that this show has come better than their relationship. While New Girl Season 1 probably would have accepted their attempted break-up and shuffled off, New Girl Season 2 treated it at the fearful but ultimately harmless nonsense (and source of great New Girl quotes) that it was.
Taylor Swift as the titular Elaine was an inspired piece of stunt casting, as her character (and the entire episode) calls back to that whole "tortured lovelorn ex-girlfriend" thing that's kind of her thing. Was she particularly, you know, good at acting? Ah, not quite. But her presence as Shivrang's ex was a thousand times funnier than anything she could have said.
A lot of our greatest television comedies took a while to find their footing (and if you don't believe me, please, go re-watch the first season of Seinfeld). But in today's brutal TV ratings market, shows are rarely given that kind of time to develop and mature--if they're not killer straight out of the gate, they go the way of the dodo.
I'm thankful that New Girl was given that rare chance. New Girl Season 1, with its random jumps in logic and indulgent acceptance of Jess's weird behavior, sometimes seemed like it was actually written by Jess and Nick themselves ( a 29-year-old woman who can't say "penis" isn't cute, it is insane!). New Girl Season 2, like its characters, has shaped up, brushed itself off, and kind of learned to deal with adult life--and is so much the better for it.
Who do you think Schmidt will choose? Will Nick and Jess last? How many weddings have you, personally, ruined via badger?

The so-called “bulge” of the Lower East Side still remains a religious Jewish stronghold despite the rampant change on all fronts. As such, one reader points out that there’s currently a modesty war brewing over at Grand and Columbia Streets. One that sorta mirrors what sometimes transpires on the other side of the river in Brooklyn.
Here at the M14A bus stop, an H&M ad featuring a bikini-clad Beyonce gets censored with some sort of cover, then categorically removed. We are told this is happening daily. From the mailbag:
There is a billboard of Beyonce at the bus stop at grand and Columbia. – one of the H and M one of her in a bikini. Every day someone tapes a cover over it, now it is opaque sheeting and every day people rip it down. You can see what is left of yesterday as the white covering at the bottom of the ad. We suspect the same modesty war that exists in Williamsburg but it is daily now.
Her ads are also being vandalized in Amsterdam,
Citizens of Amsterdam North aren't a fan of Beyoncé's H&M campaign and molested some posters around the city district with graffiti and wrote 'NEE TEGEN BLOOT (SAY NO TO NAKED)''
