It’s His Job: Aaron Staton Dances Up a Storm on ‘Mad Men’

Is there anything Ken Cosgrove can’t do? Since the earliest seasons of “Mad Men,” we’ve known that this executive, played by Aaron Staton, is a rising star in the advertising industry and an accomplished author of fiction who’s had work published in The Atlantic Monthly. But Sunday’s episode of the AMC period drama revealed that Cosgrove, when filled up with something nice by a mysterious doctor who visits his office, is a pretty impressive dancer, too, and capable of performing an elaborate and angry tap dance for his colleague Don Draper (Jon Hamm) while repeating his now popular credo, “It’s my job.”
While those words may be the work of Matthew Weiner and Jason Grote, who wrote this “Mad Men” episode — titled “The Crash” — those fancy moves are the work of Mr. Staton, who was rewarded overnight with a wealth of screen grabs, GIFs and more, preserving this moment in digital amber online. On Monday Mr. Staton spoke by telephone to discuss his moment in the spotlight.

Cuomo Threatens Kardashian With Lawsuit Over T-Shirt Logo

You'd think after all the legal trouble the Kardashians faced with their beauty line, Khloe Kardashian would smarten up before shilling any potentially troublesome products. Alas, it looks like the reality star has now stepped on New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo's toes -- yes, really.

A graphic t-shirt from Rich Soil, Khloe and Lamar Odom's clothing line, has caught New York state officials' eyes due to its similarity to the Department of Agriculture's "Pride In New York" logo, which is used to label locally-grown food. The New York Daily News has reportedly obtained a letter sent to Rich Soil on Friday from the department's lawyer, Susan Rosenthal, which orders the brand to stop selling the shirt within five days or face legal action.

Fortunately, Khloe stepped out in the garment in question just last week, so we were able to get a good look at it. Upon first glance, we have to admit that the design certainly appears to be inspired by the "Pride In New York" emblem, at the very least.

Like we said, the Kardashians haven't been too savvy when it comes to dodging lawsuits. They just resolved a conflict over their Khroma Beauty line in which they were ordered by the courts to change the brand's name to Kardashian Beauty. Before that, the sisters were embroiled in a $5 million class action lawsuit for their involvement with weight loss supplement QuickTrim. Then there was that whole legal battle that ensued after Kris Jenner got a facelift while promoting anti-aging skincare line Frownies. You get the picture.

Someone does something with Gap. Idk I wasn't really listening...

Ahead of the release of her debut album Don’t Look Down on July 9, Skylar Grey has teamed up with Gap’s to model some of the retailer’s stylish new summer fashions, such as the above pictured laced-up boots, white top and and green-and-navy-blue-striped skirt. (Pick up the skirt here.)

To give fans a taste of what’s in store with Don’t Look Down, Skylar unveiled her “Final Warning” video this week (brush up on the lyrics to the song here), which tells the tale of a mistress whose lover attempts to put her to rest for good, so he can live happily ever after with his pretty blond wife. However, Grey, who plays the other woman, resurfaces, and confronts her would-be murderer at home, in front of his family during his birthday party. Awkward?

Watch both Skylar’s “Final Warning” video and a behind-the-scenes look at the making of the clip below.

Jon Bon Jovi RIPS Bieber!!!

Veteran rocker Jon Bon Jovi has slammed Justin Bieber for turning up late to a string of concerts, insisting he runs the risk of losing fans if he does it again.

Bieber enraged ticket holders at his show at London's O2 Arena in March (13) when he kept them waiting for two hours. He pulled the same stunt again in the United Arab Emirates earlier this month (May13) and was booed by his young devotees when he finally made it to the stage in Dubai.

Bon Jovi, who is currently in Europe on his band's Because We Can Tour, is fuming over Bieber's antics, accusing him of "disrespecting" fans by wasting their time.

He tells the London Evening Standard, "Every generation has guys that do that, none of that is new. They run the risk of disrespecting their audience members who have worked hard to pay for their ticket, to give you the permission to take two or three hours of their lives - or in that kid's case, 80 minutes of their lives.

"Do it once, you can be forgiven. Do it enough times and shame on you. They won't have you back. Then it just becomes a cliche. It's really not cool - you're an a**hole. Go to f**kin' work!"


Zahara Jolie-Pitt Asks Brad Pitt, Angelina Jolie to Stop Making Out!!!

Get a room! Brad Pitt's love for Angelina Jolie is stronger than ever. The June/July issue of Esquire magazine -- conducted before Jolie went public about her double mastectomy -- profiles the 49-year-old World War Z actor and gives a glimpse into his loving home life.

"Once I walked in and Angie was standing there and Zahara walked up and said, 'Daddy, you're not going to start making out with Mommy again, are you?' And it's like that. This is a guy who has tried not to do any sexy scenes with other women since he's met Angelina. He's crazy about her, and she's the same way about him," Frank Pollaro, a close friend of Pitt's, tells Esquire. "No matter how hard he's working, if one of those kids runs by the window he'll get out of his chair and give them a kiss. And I don't think I've ever seen Angie without one of those children in her arms."And Pitt himself admits he's the happiest when he's surrounded by his partner of eight years, Jolie, 37, and their six children -- Maddox, 11, Pax, 9, Zahara, 8, Shiloh, 6, and twins Knox and Vivienne, 4.
"I have very few friends. I have a handful of close friends and I have my family and I haven't known life to be any happier," he shares. "I'm making things. I just haven't known life to be any happier."

I'm going to spend October, November, December planning and then just smash it out next year.''

Star Trek Into Darkness: five plot sequel questions for Star Trek 13

Star Trek Into Darkness, the twelfth movie in the franchise and second under the watch of J.J. Abrams, is a hit with most viewers and critics. And while its $84 million opening weekend box office showing and slightly less perfect reviewer average are both a dip from the expectations created by the previous film, it’s enough to guarantee that Star Trek 13 – or whatever the next one ends up being called – will be greenlighted. The plot of Into Darkness answered a lot of questions but raised just as many new ones as to where the next sequel will venture. Here are five questions about where Star Trek Into Even Darker Darkness will venture. And don’t keep reading if you haven’t yet seen the current Star Trek film

May 16, 2013 by Alex Naser-Hall

Louisa Rose Allen, more known as Foxes, has been having a VERY LARGE year; She released some impressive pop nuggets in 2012. Both “Youth” and “White Coats” were on strong repeat in our office, and we ate up everything else she touched as well.

Thurston Moore Talks About Not Talking About His Marriage Woes on TV

Suggests Kim Gordon's decision to speak was narcissistic

Thurston Moore has been freshly profiled for New York news channel NY1's One on 1 with Budd Mishkin. While you can't watch the thing without a Time Warner Cable account, they've put up a written-through version of the piece that includes a few revealing quotes from the former Sonic Youth frontman and current Chelsea Light Moving mastermind. He spoke on his frustration in regard to his public marital woes, which Kim Gordon aired in April.

"I don't dignify it with a response even though I feel like writing a screed about it: This is what you need to know. You don't need to know that. [But] to talk about my personal life with family? No, that is so private." He went on, seemingly referring to Gordon's decision to share their sordid story as a bid for personal attention. "A lot has to do with narcissism. I'm as narcissistic as the next person. I'm a Leo, and I understand what that is. But I do draw the line."

Madonna: The MDNA Tour DVD and Blu-Ray are being released in September


After Madonna accepted her Top Touring Artist award at the Billboard Music Awards on Sunday, she sat down exclusively with Extra’s Jerry Penacoli, and opened up about her family, her Met Gala photo with Kim Kardashian and her feud with Elton John.

She also revealed that the MDNA Tour is being released on DVD and Blu-ray in September.

On family…

"It was great to have a working family… to me that’s my idea of fun, to be creative, to do what I love to do and see my kids working around me and earning their way in life. My daughter worked in the costume department and she loved it. My son was in the show, and he loved it.

I try to find the right balance between being there for them and guiding them and also being an artist. I’m trying to find enough time in the day to do those jobs well.

I try to be very clear with them. This is my persona for work. What we aspire to do is to work and to be good people. If you don’t have those two things, fame is nothing, so I try to drill that into their heads."

On Kim Kardashian…

"I met her years and years ago when she was a little girl, believe it or not. She told me she was a huge fan of mine, and it was during the time I was wearing all of the rubber bracelets on my arms. I took off all of the bracelets and gave them to her and then I completely forgot about it. She reminded me when I saw her the other night. Now she’s a pregnant lady!"

Madonna confirmed the reconciliation with Elton John at a restaurant in Nice, France…

"After we kissed and hugged, he paid for my dinner, as he should."


George Michael's Representative: 'Singer Is Making Good Progress'

The former Wham! star was airlifted to a medical centre with cuts and bruises on 16 May (13) after a horrific road accident on the M1 motorway just north of London. The Father Figure singer reportedly fell from an open door of the vehicle as it travelled at speeds of 70 miles (112 kilometres)-per-hour.

A probe into in the incident is currently ongoing, and now his publicist has spoken out to assure fans Michael is on the mend.

A statement released from the 49 year old's representative on Tuesday reads (21May13), "I can confirm that George remains in hospital but purely as a standard precaution for observation because he suffered some bumps and cuts to his head. But he's making good progress, he's fine and he's really looking forward to getting home."

This is the latest in a string of car problems for the Careless Whisper hitmaker - he hit headlines in 2007 and 2010 after twice crashing his vehicle while high on cannabis. He was later jailed for eight weeks and hit with a five-year driving ban, which expires in 2015.


Kanye West Is 'Pushing' Will Smith To Make New Music

Is Will Smith getting back into music? Maybe! According to an interview with, Will Smith said it's been none other than Kanye West who's been encouraging him to.

"I've been messing around with Kanye," Will Smith said during press activities for his upcoming film, "After Earth" (May 31). "We went in the studio a couple times, so I might get the bug. I'm not going to do it unless I'm truly inspired, but Ye's been pushing me a little bit."

Last February, West and Smith were photographed in a recording studio together in Brazil. Though there's little reason to believe the Fresh Prince could appear on West's upcoming "Yeezus," it appears a forthcoming collaboration isn't out of the question.

Will Smith's last studio album, "Lost and Found," came out in 2005.

Chris Brown being comforted by new puppy

Chris Brown has splashed out on a new puppy to keep him company.

The newly-single 'Fine China' singer - who recently split from his on/off girlfriend Rihanna, who he is still on probation for beating in 2009 - is being comforted by his new 13-week old English bulldog puppy.

A source told that the R&B star's new pet pooch is currently called Chief but he wants to give the dog a new name.

The 24-year-old singer, who has previously owned a pitbull, got the dog from Los Angeles-based breeders Shrinkabulls, which has helped a number of high profile stars including Cher Lloyd, Joe Jonas and Randy Jackson adopt bulldog puppies in the past.

Chris was spotted getting close to his model ex-girlfriend Karrueche Tran at the Billboard Music Awards in Las Vegas, Nevada over the weekend but Rihanna's father Ronald Fenty thinks they will reunite in the future when they have more time to enjoy their relationship.


Jessica Walter on 'Arrested Development,' The Difference Between Lucille Bluth and Malory Archer

It's long been established that Jessica Walter, who plays the wonderfully boozy, manipulative matriarch Lucille Bluth on "Arrested Development," is nothing like her character. But what's interesting is precisely how much that's the case -- not just a genuinely nice person, Walter oozes sincerity – and more than that, gratitude. Even after working for more than 50 years in Hollywood, she's still enormously appreciative for all of the opportunities she enjoys, and genuinely enthusiastic about what's yet to come. And with "Arrested Development" set to return on May 26, what's yet to come holds enormous promise.

Indiewire sat down with Walter at a recent Los Angeles press day for the Netflix series, where she nobly tried to explain the complex narrative latticework that show creator Mitch Hurwitz used to revive "Arrested Development" from its seven-year slumber for a 15-episode premiere slated for May 26th. Admitting that even she didn't quite understand all of it, she discussed the process of getting back in the bottle with Lucille and rekindling the rhythms of the Bluth family with her fellow castmates. And if that wasn't enough, she talked about the "Dr. Strange" movie she made in 1978 that she still marvels at (no pun intended), if only because it managed to presage what she might look like when she reached her current age of 72.

Star Trek Into Darkness writer apologises for underwear scene

Damon Lindelof, the writer of Star Trek Into Darkness, has apologised for a "gratuitous" scene during the new sci-fi sequel in which British actor Alice Eve appears in her underwear.

Lindelof, who is also the co-creator of Lost, took to Twitter after fans pointed out the unnecessary nature of the offending segue, in which science officer Carol Marcus strips down to a bra and knickers while preparing to pull on a special torpedo disarming outfit.

"I copped to the fact that we should have done a better job of not being gratuitous in our representation of a barely clothed actress," he wrote, adding: "We also had Kirk shirtless in underpants in both movies, [but I] do not want to make light of something that some construe as misogynistic. What I'm saying is I hear you, I take responsibility and will be more mindful in the future."

Demi Lovato headed for SURGERY ....

Demi Lovato is having her tonsils out this winter.

The 20-year-old singer is set to undergo the operation to remove the tissue from her throat later this year in the midst of promoting her new album Demi and ahead of the next series of The X Factor USA, and she admits her hectic schedule and surgery could stop her from touring.

The two megastars also share a mutual friend in Taylor Lautner. Stewart is good pals with the 21-year-old actor, having starred alongside him in The Twilight Saga films over the past five years, and Swift dated him for three months in 2009.

Fifth Harmony Perform Taylor Swift’s “Red”: The Idolator Sessions

The girls of Fifth Harmony cut their teeth on The X Factor performing lushly harmonized (per the name) covers of pop hits, so when they stopped by Idolator headquarters in New York City, it only felt natural that they’d turn out a cover or two for your enjoyment — and to wit, the girls were willing to put their spin on Taylor Swift‘s album title track “Red.”

There are a bunch of things about this that are phenomenal: Camila Cabello‘s absolutely sickening vocal performance on the second verse; the way Ally Brooke demolishes those vocal runs in the last chorus; that funny moment between Camila and Normani Hamilton just before they finish the song — but the best thing about this video is how nicely the girls work together in synchronicity. They really do like each other as much as they claim to, and it comes through watching them together.

Destiny's Emancipated Child, Letoya Luckett And Second Generation Wayan Join VH1 'Single Ladies'

A new season of VH1's hit series Single Ladies is set to debut this summer, although without creator/executive producer/showrunner Stacy A. Littlejohn, who left the show to pursue other projects late last year.

The Queen Latifah-produced series was renewed for a third season, after averaging a healthy 3.2 million total viewers per episode, up 10% from season 1, which means even more of you watched it than during the first season.

And for season 3, add new cast members in Letoya Luckett, Damien Wayans and Lesley-Ann Brandt.

Luckett will play Felicia Price, described in the press release as the icy and aloof founder and Senior Partner of Price Management, one of the most influential music management companies in the world.

Wayans will play David Berenger, April’s (Charity Shea's) main foil at Price Management - a masterful sycophant, and a slick manager on the Atlanta music scene.

And finally, Brandt, will plays Naomi Cox, described as a demure, sexy, scheming gold-digger who is a constant thorn in Keisha’s (LisaRaye McCoy's) side.

"Our viewers’ love affair with ‘Single Ladies’ got even bigger [in season 2], growing significantly from its successful first season and dominating its timeslot on basic cable," said Jeff Olde, Executive Vice President of Original Programming and Production, VH1. "We’re extremely happy that we’ll be able to give the audience another great season of the series and its honest, current take on love, dating and female friendship."

Season 2 starred LisaRaye McCoy (Keisha), Denise Vasi (Raquel) and Charity Shea (April) as three best friends navigating the dating world in Atlanta. The season saw the exit of Stacey Dash, the addition of Cassandra Freeman, and the aforementioned Denise Vasi as newbies to the show's cast.

Season 3 is set to premiere in mid-2013.

A trailer for the upcoming season should surface soon.


I can't stop watching this show, mostly because of how terrible it is.

The Shortbread Prince talks 'Epic', 'The Hunger Games' and Future Plans

Normally, you work your way into the off-the-wall questions with movie stars. But with Josh Hutcherson, the big one is just hanging there, demanding to be asked:

“How often does the average 12- to 19-year-old girl come up to you and propose marriage?”

The 20 year-old “Hunger Games” hunk, nicknamed “our Boy with the Bread” on some of the many fansites devoted to showing their devotion (,, welcometodistrict12), takes it all in stride.

“More often than you think,” he cracks. “I get it. I get it. It’s the CHARACTER they’re in love with, right?”

Right. Well, maybe. A Kentucky native, a child star since “The Bridge to Terabithia” and “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” an actor of some repute since “The Kids are All Right,” Hutcherson’s world was rocked from the day he was cast as Peeta Mellark, love interest to archer-heroine Katniss Everdeen in “The Hunger Games.” The movie was a teen-girl driven blockbuster, selling millions of tickets and millions of copies of the books and fan magazines about the series.

Ashley Tisdale to Cops: I Fear My Stalker Will SHOOT ME

Ashley Tisdale says her obsessed stalker has threatened to SHOOT her and her BF ... and she fears he's crazy enough to go through with it, this according to court docs obtained by TMZ.

Tisdale was just granted a temporary restraining order against Nicholas Fiore -- the fan who allegedly hammered Tisdale with more than 18,000 tweets since 2012.

In her request for the order, filed in L.A. County Superior Court, Tisdale says Fiore is delusional and dangerous -- and has already shown up to her L.A. home on two occasions.

In fact, Tisdale says Fiore once attempted to gain access to her home by pretending to be a delivery man.

But the most frightening part ... Tisdale claims Fiore has been tweeting song lyrics at her that reference guns -- which she is interpreting as threats he'll shoot her and her BF.

In the docs, Ashley begs the court to force Fiore to stay at least 5,000 yards away from her at all times -- fearing, "If an immediate order is not granted ... [Fiore] will attempt to cause or cause severe bodily harm to myself and my boyfriend."

Just last week, the judge approved the temporary restraining order ... but it only requires Fiore to stay 100 yards away ... 4,900 yards shy of Ashley's request.

A hearing on the matter is set for June 5th.

Hollywood's Disabled Actors Protest NBC's 'Ironside' Casting - When Is It Their Turn?

When the '60s procedural "Ironside" is revived on NBC this fall, the setting will move from San Francisco to New York and the lead character will be African-American. But one thing hasn't changed: The actor playing Ironside can still walk from his wheelchair when the director yells cut.

The colorblind casting is ironic to some disabled actors -- who say having a walking actor play a paraplegic is as offensive as blackface.

"This would be like being in the '50s and having a white guy do blackface, at this point," said "Sons of Anarchy" star Kurt Yaeger (left), an actor and pro BMX rider who lost his left leg after a motorcycle accident. "You need to start having disabled people playing disabled characters. Period."

NBC declined to comment to TheWrap on the "Ironside" casting, and on whether any disabled actors auditioned for the role, which went to Blair Underwood. But five disabled actors who spoke to TheWrap said film and television should at least give them a chance to play characters whose struggles they truly understand.

Darius Rucker Racist Tweet Sparks Outrage Among Online Community

Darius Rucker racist tweet has caused an outcry among the Twitter-verse, with the Hootie and the Blowfish singer receiving a rather uncalled for, to say the least, reply to his recent live cover of a Bob Dylan song. The song, 'Wagon Wheel,' was originally penned by Dylan, but achieved it's highest form of recognition when Old Crow Medicine covered the track nearly a decade ago.

Darius tweeted a thank you to Dylan and OCM for letting him use the song, his tweet reading; "To Bob Dylan and my friend Ketch Secor and all the boys @crowmedicine thanks for an amazing tune. OCMS is the friiggin real deal. Much love."However the singer could hardly have imagined the response from one particularly intolerant (and musically uneducated) Twitter reveller though. "@dariusrucker Leave country to the white folk," wrote one unsatisfied and blatantly racist Twitter user, with the comment earning a deserved response from an understandably angry Rucker. Rucker's response went like this; "Wow... is this 2013 or 1913? I'll take my grand ole Opry membership and leave your racism. Wow."

Needless to say, the whole ordeal has whipped up quite a storm among the online community who are outraged at the comment and full of praise for Rucker's reasonable and restrained response. Darius currently sits at the number two spot on the Billboard Country charts with his version of 'Wagon Wheel,' with the song having peaked at the number one spot. Not that it needed any more condemnation, but looks like the Twitter troll couldn't have been any more wrong.


Melissa McCarthy Doesn't Tolerate Abuse On Her Movie Set

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Melissa McCarthy is new to the director's chair; but she's already acting like a BOSS. The "Bridesmaids" star just FIRED an extra for mistreating her own little kid on set, TMZ has learned.

It happened yesterday in Wilmington, NC where they're filming "Tammy," a comedy McCarthy is co-directing with husband and fellow first-timer Ben Falcone.

The extra, a woman in her 20s, brought along her child -- age approximately 4-5 -- for the daylong shoot by a lake and the standard $58 payday sources tell TMZ.

Witnesses say the young mom had been struggling with her kid all morning constantly harping on the child to "stop it" and quiet down loudly enough to disrupt the production, which included more than 200 extras.

Sources say the last straw came when the mom harshly jerked the child up in the air by the wrist -- and McCarthy saw it all. The director IMMEDIATELY had PAs bounce the woman saying she wouldn't tolerate abuse on her set and that was that.

The woman's identity was not disclosed. Reps for McCarthy had no immediate comment.


E! News Is Going Down With That Pregnant Ship

Oh hey, Beyoncé!

The pregnant singer was spotted at a port in the South of France, where she was snapped hopping aboard a luxury yacht with hubby Jay-Z, sister Solange and her sibling's boyfriend Alan Ferguson.

Taking some much-needed R&R time in between touring for her Mrs. Carter Show, the expectant star looked relaxed and content as she waved to the camera.

Justin Bieber no longer has a pet monkey

The spokesman for the Munich Customs office exclusively tells E! News: "Mally is now the property of Germany. It will be official in six weeks. Today he is definitely confiscated by Germany. We have officially confiscated Mally today."

The decision comes nearly seven weeks after German customs officials seized the little fella from Bieber during a tour stop in Munich after the pop star failed to provide the requisite paperwork.

"Justin Bieber has six weeks to bring more papers or contest this decision, but if we don't hear from him, the decision to confiscate the monkey will be legally binding," Meister said. "I don't think he will bring papers because he had six weeks before and nobody contacted us."

Meister added that Mally is expected to move to his new home next week, but would not reveal the location.

"We are not going to say where Mally will go because Mally needs quiet and a lot of Justin Bieber fans would go to the zoo," he said. "He is going to a place where there are a lot of Capuchin monkeys. Mally needs to integrate with his new family of Capuchin monkeys and start a new life. I think the home will be in Germany."

Meanwhile, Meister will be sending Bieber an invoice to pay for the cost of Mally's care at the shelter, which he estimated at about $6,500.

"He will have about six weeks to pay it," Meister pointed out. "If he doesn't, the next time he arrives in Germany for a concert or something, customs will go out to his plane to get the payment right then. I don't know what happens if he doesn't pay then. I think he will likely pay it."

Bieber's rep has not returned a request for comment.

Friday Night Lights' Aimee Teegarden Looks Unrecognizable

Texas forever! It's been two years since Friday Night Lights took its final bow, and, boy, has a lot changed since then. For one thing, Aimee Teegarden, who played the football coach's moody blonde teenage daughter, Julie Taylor, is now brunette, her trademark bangs no longer framing her cherubic face. And costar Scott Porter, who played Jason Street, the star quarterback who becomes paralyzed during a game, is now married and on a new show, CW's The Heart of Dixie.

The two former costars reunited on Thursday, May 16 at the network's upfront in NYC, and it's a wonder that Porter recognized Teegarden. The actress, now 23 and willowy-thin, looked stylish and sexy in a skimpy black mini dress with cutouts at the midriff, nothing like her FNL character, whose tomboy style consisted largely of jeans and tees. "I'm a pretty healthy person. I hit the gym probably five days a week if I have the time," the actress told US Weekly at the press event. "I do weights, I do plyometrics, I do cardio, I surf in California. I just went on a surf trip last week with my girlfriend in San Diego. It was so epic but it was definitely a lot colder in the water than I expected."

Teegarden was at the upfront to promote her new CW show, Star-Crossed, in which she plays a teen girl who falls in love with an alien boy (Matt Lanter of 90210). "Working on Friday Night Lights for five years with such a huge ensemble cast, it was such an amazing show," she said. "But yeah, this is my first supernatural show and it's the first show that I'm a lead of and it's got a sci-fi element, which I love."

Turns out Teegarden may have a chance to work with her old cast members again. At Cannes this week, producer Brian Grazer told Deadline that he and Ron Howard were planning to use crowdfunding to raise money for the movie version of Friday Night Lights. And on Friday, May 17, Connie Britton, who played supermom Tami Taylor on the cult show, told Live! With Kelly and Michael, “I think it would be a really fun thing, but everybody has different opinions about it, so it’s about getting everybody onboard."

Lindsay Lohan Sued by Clothing Company

DNAM Apparel Industries, who Lohan sued in January over $1.1M in allegedly unpaid royalties, claims 'Mean Girls' star breached their 2008 contract.

Lindsay Lohan first sued California-based DNAM Apparel Industries in January over an alleged $1.1 million in unpaid royalties and sales. Now the company behind her 6126 clothing line claims it was the actress who who breached their 2008 licensing deal.

An apparel company that claims Lindsay Lohan skirted her duties with the 6126 clothing line is counter-suing the oft-rehabbed starlet.

The “Mean Girls” actress first sued California-based DNAM Apparel Industries in January, contending the company owed her $1.1 million in unpaid royalties and sales.

But DNAM claims Lohan is the one who breached their 2008 licensing deal when her personal life unraveled with legal issues that led to both jail and two stints in rehab in 2010.

DNAM says its first collection with Lohan was “very well received” in early 2010, but then the 26-year-old starlet spent two weeks behind bars in mid 2010 for violating her driving-under-the influence probation and was fresh out of one court-ordered rehab when a dirty drug test landed her at the Betty Ford Clinic in September 2010.

'Once Upon a Time': Storybrooke Will Not Be Forgotten, The Hook-Up You Won't See

Although Rumplestiltskin kissed Belle goodbye in the Season 2 finale of ABC’s Once Upon a Time – tasking her with a vague mission to hide Storybrooke from other lookie-loos as he and five others set course for Neverland — series cocreator Adam Horowitz tells TVLine there “absolutely” is a plan to continue visiting the Maine berg.

“Some people got on a ship, some stayed behind,” Horowitz notes. “And what happened to those who stayed behind is just as important as what’s happening to those on the ship.”

Storybrooke, however, is left populated by only one series regular — Emilie de Ravin, who plays Belle — now that Meghan Ory, who was promoted for a Season 2 arc that wound up truncated, has her own series, CBS’ Intelligence (where she “handles” human computer Josh Holloway). But given that her new show shoots in Vancouver, like Once, and won’t debut until midseason, “Ruby will probably be back at some point,” Ory tells us. “She never died, so she’ll be somewhere.”

'The Voice' Recap: Judith Hill Pays Tribute to Michael Jackson

Last week, the power shifted completely to viewers of The Voice, whose votes eliminated Vedo and Garrett Gardner. This week, the top 10 once again sang for survival, with the bottom two, regardless of team, getting the boot tonight.

We have a feeling Blake Shelton's team has little to worry about, though, as he was quick to point out that the Swon Brothers had a Number Four-ranking country song on iTunes last week and Danielle Bradbery sold 50,000 singles in one week. They also just so happened to be the top two charting contestants on iTunes' top 100 songs the day after last week's performances.

Zac Efron lands two new movie roles!

Julie and Rick Yorn will produce the true-life tale via their Fox-based shingle, LBI.

Fox has gone deep undercover to pick up Narc, a true-crime project to which Zac Efron is attached to star.Julie and Rick Yorn will produce via their Fox-based shingle LBI, while Garrett Meyer, who is part of the studio’s writing program, is on board to pen the script.

Narc, described as a college-set Donnie Brasco, centers on an all-American college student who was a big man on campus. He was the president of his fraternity and captain of his lacrosse team but got busted by local police when he was caught with some cocaine he was going to distribute at a party.

The police offered him a deal in which he would not be arrested if he became an undercover informant. The student then ended up living a secret double life while in college, wearing wiretaps and eventually putting away big-time criminals.

Efron, who is currently shooting Universal’s The Townies with Seth Rogen, just signed on to the thriller Autobahn with Amber Heard. The project is selling at Cannes. He is repped by CAA and Alchemy Entertainment.

New Robin Thicke

Robin Thicke had some fun with Pharrell and T.I. on his hit “Blurred Lines,” but he returns to familiar territory on “4 the Rest of My Life.” The tender love ballad, which is scheduled to hit iTunes on May 28, is destined to become a wedding anthem (Thicke has performed at weddings for Kim Kardashian and Michael Jordan). The romantic crooner reminisces about first laying eyes on his wife Paula Patton and knowing that she was the one.

“For the rest of my life you know I’m gonna be yours,” he sings in a falsetto.

“Blurred Lines” continues to shoot up the charts, while his album of the same name is due this summer.

How do I describe Nicolas Cage?

Nicolas Cage is flawless. I hear he does car Japan China.


I hear his hair is insured for $10,000. Still lost his house though. Want to know what's in it?
nic hair

My favorite four things in this world are 1) bargains, 2) rich people's houses, 3) celebrities who have been famous for so long they're losing their grip on reality, and 4) snooping through other people's shit.

So I was overjoyed when I found out there was going to be an estate sale featuring the entire contents of one of the houses Nicolas Cage lost due to his financial troubles. Can you imagine a better celebrity house to snoop through? His whole financial mess was caused by his blowing money on stuff like dinosaur skulls and albino king cobras.

So I headed down to take a look around.

Do children care who voices cartoon characters?

By Fwee_prower & Brucelyn

The answer is no. The upcoming movie Epic is coming out this week and all of its commercials seem to be promoting their all-star cast. But I have seen none that have actually shown its plot. I guess it’s more important that kids know their favorite Aziz Ansari is voicing a slug. Back when we were kids we didn’t care. It was an animated movie to us that we just wanted to enjoy. Now it seems animated movies need to promote the big stars to get more seats in the theater than the actual plot of the movie. That was never the case. Toy Story 3 had an all-star cast and is the highest grossing animated film in all time but it didn’t need to bank on its cast. It had a beautiful story that was shown in all the previews. The same goes for the Lion King. As children we did not care who was voicing Scar but as adults we love the fact Jeremy Irons voiced him.

Growing up we heard many different voices in cartoons, again we as children did not care because it’s the show we care about. We may notice similar sounding voices like Cree Summer, E.G. Daily, Tim Curry and many others but we didn’t choose to watch the show or movie because of those voice actors. I’m sorry but I don’t think any children will know who Chris O’Dowd is or care. All they care about is a fun animated movie.

American Idol's Allison Iraheta Is Married: Report

Bridal Idol! Allison Iraheta, who came in fourth on season eight of American Idol, is married, according to The Hollywood Reporter. As revealed on the site's Idol Worship blog, the singer eloped with her Halo Circus bandmate Matthew Hager in January and has been keeping the nuptials under wraps ever since.

Iraheta, 21, first met Hager through her friend and guitarist David Immerman. (Hager is a multi-platinum producer who has worked with the likes of Duran Duran, Scott Weiland, Mandy Moore, and the Backstreet Boys.) The three started writing songs together -- and the rest is history.

"Our souls were patched together in this project," the pink-haired star told THR in April. "It was so honest. We felt like a family, so we continued to write as a band."


'Hunger Games' Josh Hutcherson to Star In and Produce 'Ape'

After conquering "The Hunger Games," Josh Hutcherson is set to star in the dark psychological thriller "Ape" for Atomic Owl Pictures and JetLag Productions.

Miguel Sapochnik ("Repo Men") will direct the film from a script by newcomer Jon Johnston. 

Bree Herzog is producing for Atomic Owl along with JetLag's Hutcherson, Michelle Fightmaster and Ric Beddingfield. ICM Partners will handle worldwide rights.

"Ape" is a dramatic tale of a young man’s struggle with mental illness, love and a deep-rooted family secret.

“We strongly believe in the global appeal of this project and we’re excited to work with Bree Herzog and team” said Hutcherson. “‘Ape’ is a passion project for us and to see it get made would truly be a dream come true.”

"Josh is a tremendously talented and versatile actor who has already had an exciting career with roles spanning from blockbuster franchises such as ‘The Hunger Games’ to award-winning independent films like ‘The Kids Are All Right.' We couldn't be happier to be collaborating with Josh and JetLag Productions on ‘Ape,’" said Herzog, whose Atomic Owl banner is also developing Pamela Ribon's script "Thank You For Being a Friend."

Hutcherson is currently in Panama filming the Pablo Escobar drug drama "Paradise Lost" with Benicio Del Toro. He'll soon be seen reprising his role as Peeta Mellark in "The Hunger Games: Catching Fire," which is screening footage at Cannes.

As much as I want him to succeed, I hope Graceland gets cancelled, because BROADWAY, AARON...BROADWAY! And not having to film season two frees him up to play Cinderella's Prince in Into The Woods, and shouldn't we all be focusing our energy into him doing THAT instead? Also, if you disagree with me on this, I will reach through the internet and cut you. No one is more right for Cindy's Prince than Aaron (except for maybe a real, actual baritone, but Broadway doesn't even make those anymore, so I doubt Hollywood would fare any better).

Brad Pitt Believes That He Has Medical Condition That Causes Him to Not Remember People

Brad Pitt won't remember you. If you've met him, he'll have no idea who you are when he meets you again. Even if you've had what he calls "a real conversation," your face will start fading from his memory as soon as you walk away. He'll try to hold on to its outlines, but your features will suffer an inexorable erasure, and the next time he sees you you'll be brand-new to him. He used to try tricking those he'd forgotten into thinking he remembered them, or at least waiting them out for a clue or scrap of context. But then he decided to experiment.

"So many people hate me because they think I'm disrespecting them," he says. "So I swear to God, I took one year where I just said, This year, I'm just going to cop to it and say to people, 'Okay, where did we meet?' But it just got worse. People were more offended. Every now and then, someone will give me context, and I'll say, 'Thank you for helping me.' But I piss more people off. You get this thing, like, 'You're being egotistical. You're being conceited.' But it's a mystery to me, man. I can't grasp a face and yet I come from such a design/aesthetic point of view. I am going to get it tested."

He is convinced he has that thing, that condition he read about a few years ago. What's it called? Is he pronouncing it right? That's it: prosopagnosia. It's gotten to the point where he doesn't even like going out — "that's why I stay at home" — but he's also a public person, the center of crowds. "You meet so many damned people," he says. "And then you meet 'em again."

On changing the direction of his life: “I’d get so far and then want to do something else. I mean, I’m two credits short of graduating college. Two credits. All I had to do was write a paper. What kind of guy is that? That guy scares me – the guy who always leaves a little on his plate. For a long time I thought I did too much damage – drug damage. I was a bit of a drifter. A guy who felt he grew up in something of a vacuum and wanted to see things, wanted to be inspired. I followed that other thing. I spent years f–king off. But then I got burnt out and felt that I was wasting my opportunity. It was a conscious change. This was about a decade ago. It was an epiphany – a decision not to squander my opportunities. It was a feeling of get up. Because otherwise, what’s the point?”

Sharon Stone Flashes Major Cleavage in Plunging Dress at Cannes

Sharon Stone is 55 -- but you'd never know it from looking at her. More than two decades after she flashed audiences as serial killer Catherine Tramell in Basic Instinct, the Lovelace actress is still wowing movie fans with her sexy style and enviable figure.

Hitting the red carpet on Tuesday, May 21, for the Cannes Film Festival premiere of the HBO Liberace biopic, Behind the Candelabra -- starring her Basic Instinct costar Michael Douglas as the late, great pianist -- Stone stole the show in a revealing cobalt blue gown. The daring dress, which featured a low back and plunging neckline, showcased the stunning star's incredible physique and considerable cleavage.

The Casino Academy Award nominee worked the crowd like a pro, waving and blowing kisses to fans and photographers, even as she risked a possible nip slip. And if the gown wasn't enough to grab people's attention, the bling certainly was: Stone paired her risque frock with a dazzling multi-strand necklace of what appeared to be diamonds and emeralds.

Clip from this week's 'Hannibal'

Video won't embed go here to watch it.

As I noted last week, the fate of "Hannibal" remains very much up in the air at NBC, which has to factor in 1)The strong quality of the show and the stellar reviews, 2)The very modest (if that) ratings, 3)The reduced cost, since the show is an international co-production, and 4)Where they might put it next season, given that they've already ordered several mid-season shows that don't yet have timeslots.

But the show continues to be great, and this week's episode (airing, as usual, Thursday at 10 Eastern) puts the focus back onto Hugh Dancy as Will Graham, whose gift for thinking like a serial killer (or, rather, like all serial killers) is taking a greater emotional cost with each new case. In this exclusive clip, Will goes to Mads Mikkelsen's Dr. Lecter for guidance after he loses time while visiting another grisly crime scene. Enjoy, and we'll have more to talk about after "Trou Normand" airs on Thursday night.

Sergio Garcia makes a racist remark toward Tiger Woods, apologizes

Sergio Garcia's verbal sparring with Tiger Woods continued Tuesday night in Europe with what could be perceived as a racial reference aimed at the world's No. 1 player for which the Spaniard later issued an apology.

Garcia, who took issue with Woods for what he viewed as a breach of golf course etiquette during the third round of The Players Championship two weeks ago, was asked in jest at a European Tour function if he would be inviting Woods to dinner during next month's U.S. Open.

"We'll have him round every night,'' Garcia said, according to multiple media reports. "We will serve fried chicken.''

"Fried chicken" references are associated as racial stereotypes with African-Americans. A similar comment got Fuzzy Zoeller in trouble following the 1997 Masters, when he quipped that fried chicken would be served at the following year's champions' dinner, which Woods would host as defending champion.

According to media reports, Garcia left the European Tour awards dinner Tuesday night at the BMW PGA Championship in Virginia Water, England, before he could be questioned. He later issued a statement through the European Tour.

"I apologize for any offense that may have been caused by my comment on stage during the European Tour Players' Awards dinner,'' Garcia said. "I answered a question that was clearly made towards me as a joke with a silly remark, but in no way was the comment meant in a racist manner.''

Celebs pay tribute to Zach Sobiech's "Clouds"

He was given months to live last June, but that didn't stop Zach Sobiech from becoming a rock star – and an inspiration to millions.

Sobiech passed away Monday, 17 days after his 18th birthday. First diagnosed with osteosarcoma when he was 14, Sobiech's music became his way of expressing himself. His song "Clouds" not only went viral last December, but also resulted in a star-studded celebrity tribute video earlier this month.

"My closure is being able to get my feelings into these songs. So [friends and family] could have something to remember me by, or lean on when I was gone," he says in a 22-minute film about his story, My Last Days: Meet Zach Sobiech, featured on SoulPancake.

From moments in the hospital, to getting the car of his dreams for a week and dancing with his girlfriend Amy in the living room or the middle of the Minnesota Vikings stadium, each minute is more moving than the last.

Even Justin Baldoni, the documentary's director, says, "I was not expecting to meet a 17-year-old who would change my life."

Members of the Sobiech family – parents Rob and Laura, and siblings Alli, Sam and Grace – ask that donations in Zach's memory go to the Zach Sobiech Osteosarcoma Fund to help carry on Zach's mission to help kids with cancer.

"It's really simple, actually," Zach says of learning to make the world a better place: "Just try to make people happy."
