Janet Jackson planning $24 million wedding?

FIJI-Water-At-amfAR-New-York-Gala-2013-janet-jackson-33548859-880-893
Janet Jackson and her man Wissam Al Mana might be plotting nuptials to put the royal wedding to shame!

There are whispers that Janet could be planning the wedding of the century. According to One News, Janet is planning to jump the broom in the most extravagant style during a $24 million ceremony.

"They have tentatively set a late 2013 wedding date," a source reportedly told The National Enquirer. "They are still working out the details and the exact day."

Such a wedding wouldn’t be hard to pull off for Janet’s billionaire beau and she’s built up a nice bank account for herself as well. Reportedly the couple will fly in 500 of their loved ones for $3 million. And Wissam is said to be giving each guest a $10,000 Rolex watch as a wedding favor as a sign of appreciation.

"Wissam is going to splash big when he marries Janet. It’s going to be the wedding of the century,” the source explained.

Here Are All The Easter Eggs In 'Monsters University'

Disney and Pixar's big prequel to 2001's "Monsters Inc." came out last weekend.

"Monsters University" had a great opening weekend debuting to $82 million.

While most were excited to see the duo of Mike and Sulley (Billy Crystal and John Goodman) reunited on screen together during their college days, others were probably more excited with the thrills of the hidden gems in any Pixar flick.

Pixar is notorious for hiding a few iconic symbols in each of its films along with a hint at its next movie.

Disney publicly released a few of these little Easter Eggs along with high resolution photos.

Check them out below along with a few others we've compiled from around the Web and with our own eagle eyes.

Robin Thicke's New Song Sounds Like A Madonna Song?

Do you like Robin Thicke‘s song, Blurred Lines? Does it remind you of another song? There are people saying Blurred Lines ripped off Marvin Gaye‘s, Got To Give It Up, and there’s another group of people that think Blurred Lines is a slowed down version of Madonna’s song, Give It 2 Me. Give It 2 Me and Blurred Lines are produced by Pharrell so there may be something to the similarity of the base beat or cowbell that you hear in both songs.

How to Save Doctor Who in 5 Easy Steps

doctor who
Since its revival, Doctor Who has been consistently knocking it out of the park through excellent season arcs, complex characters and an exploration of what makes the Doctor worthy of respect, admiration or even fear. However, the more experimental the show gets with pushing the boundaries of time travel and even the medium of the 50-year old family show itself, the further it risks alienating its family audience and losing in the ratings.

Though under Moffat’s very distinct tenure as showrunner we’ve seen more sides of the Doctor – from family man to fearful cosmic being – and more playing with the rules present of the universe of Doctor Who and more manipulation of time travel than in any season previously, things need a mix-up. More than ever before, there are things that need to change before season eight airs, within the universe of the show and in its production, to avoid alienating the family audience the show is made for and to stop the show’s decline in the ratings.

Change is a good thing, and it’ll certainly help the upcoming 12th Doctor find his feet if his run on the show has a different flavour to Smith’s, Tennant’s and Eccleston’s.

From Worst To Best: Ranking The Pixar Movies (So Far). Let's Do This, ONTD.

www.indiewire.com

This weekend Pixar's latest digital marvel, "Monsters University," roars into theaters (already dominating the box office, obviously). Few studios can claim the kind of quality that Pixar often does – for a while there it was the most critically and commercially adored studio in the history of cinema (though they are not without their faults). And for good reason. It seemed like year after year they would commit a new classic, an endlessly re-watchable delight full of characters that will be beloved by children the world over for decades to come. In fact, the amount of excellence made ranking the films a blurry and burdensome proposition. But in hindsight (and after a couple of shoddy 3D conversions), it becomes clearer which movies are truly more special than others. This is what we've attempted to do, with our worst-to-best Pixar retrospective. It goes without saying that some of these rankings represent a fractional superiority of one over the other and that this list was really hard to make and arrange. It also goes without saying that it will undoubtedly piss a lot of people off, so we encourage you to respond in the comment section below.

Hope this one gets through Mods because it's quite an interesting read, and also because I haven't seen this article posted here yet. Plus, "Monsters U." is killing it right now at the box office. Rest of the rationales for the other Pixar flicks can be read at the source.

GOT Post: 10 Most Shocking Deaths You Didn’t See Coming (sort of)


By Edward Owen
There’s a lot of death in Game of Thrones, an awful lot indeed. It appears you can’t turn a corner in King’s Landing without getting ran through by some knight or other, and if you happen to be a soldier of any kind, you really aren’t going to make it home at all. There’s a lot of soldiers at the bottom of the Blackwater Bay and spread out in the garden of The Twins who can attest to that fact – if they weren’t, y’know, dead – and though the Westerosi wars appear to be over, the fatality count shows no sign of slowing down over the Narrow Sea.

But of course, in sprawling quasi-medieval epics, you half-expect a lot of people without nametags to die – it quite literally comes with the territory. Yet what marks Thrones out as a series is that just about anyone can die at any time, and George R. R. Martin and the showrunners seem to have a lot of fun pointing that out. A hell of a lot of characters have bitten the dust over the last three series, and each one has been shocking in their own little way.

Yet I’m here to point out the big beasts of death, those who shuffled off the mortal coil in particularly memorable/dramatic/heart-breaking fashion, sorting the wheat from the chaff to find the most shocking deaths the series has (sometimes literally) conjured up so far.

Be wary, for there will be SPOILERS ahead.

Collapse )

The list is more targeted towards non-book readers obviously, no need to point that out. For you non-book readers, which death was the most shocking? For book readers, which death was better or worst than what you had envisioned?

Feed watchers have watched Spencer call women “cunts” and spit the word “fag” in Andy’s face. Similarly, Aaryn Gries complained that Andy would most likely get next week’s MVP because “people love the queers.” Aaryn’s also demanded Candice, an African American woman, say “asked, not axed” and suggested Helen, the season’s sole Asian American houseguest, should “go make some rice.” GinaMarie also wondered if they could make Helen’s eyes straight.

The 2012-2013 Golden Europe TV Winners: Game Of Thrones, Hannibal And AD Sweep

hannibal

Game of Thrones claimed the Drama throne for third consecutive year, winning a total of 9 Awards including Series, Ensemble, Writing and Directing for Drama. In addition the show also won Best Drama Episode for the buzz filled episode ”The Rains of Castamere.” This is also the third consecutive year the series win this category. The show previously won for episodes ”Baelor” and ”Blackwater” – all three wining episodes are the 9th episode of their respective seasons.

But Game of Thrones victory was expected, and because of that it was overshadowed by NBC’s HANNIBAL which won total of 6 awards, including Lead Drama Actor and Supporting Drama Actor. The series also did well in the tech field with wins for Sound Editing, Sound Mixing, Picture Editing and Contemporary Production Design.

In Comedy, there was one series to rule them all – the returning Arrested Development. The retuning on Netflix series won the whooping 8 Awards, including Comedy Series, Ensemble (stopping the three year reign of Modern Family in this category) Writing and Directing. This wins came after the show broke the record for most nominations for Comedy Series.

In Acting, there were surprises, and there were the more of the same. Alec Baldwin reclaimed Lead Comedy Actor after wining it last year. This was his fourth award for 30 Rock. Tina Fey also defended her Lead Comedy Actress award, so the stars of 30 Rock finished their run victorious.

In Supporting, it was expected for Jane Krakowski (30 Rock) also to defend her award from least year for Supporting Comedy Actress, but it was veteran actress Cloris Leachman (Raising Hope) who claimed the Award. The big moment came in Comedy Supporting Actor where Neil Patrick Harris (How I Met your Mother) who had won this award for the past 6 consecutive years finally lost to the retuning Will Arnett for Arrested Development.

Where Is the Female Tony Soprano/Anti-Hero?

James Gandolfini changed the kind of characters who could anchor major TV dramas—but those characters overwhelmingly still must be men.


In the aftermath of his death, many critics have correctly eulogized James Gandolfini's place in pop-culture history by citing his Sopranos role as a before-and-after mark for television. Before Tony Soprano, a drama series could not be built around a lead character who was immoral, violent and unlikable--the hallmarks of a villain rather than a hero. After Tony Soprano, television entered a golden age where drama leads stopped being polite and started getting real, like Jack Bauer (Kiefer Sutherland, 24), Vic Mackey (Michael Chiklis, The Shield), Gregory House (Hugh Laurie, House), Dexter Morgan (Michael C. Hall, Dexter), Don Draper (Jon Hamm, Mad Men), Walter White (Bryan Cranston, Breaking Bad), Nucky Thompson (Steve Buscemi, Boardwalk Empire), Neal Caffrey (Matt Bomer, White Collar), and Raylan Givens (Timothy Olyphant, Justified).

Gabrielle Union's "BEING MARY JANE" is receiving very good reviews *Spoilers*

The San Francisco Chronicle
'Being Mary Jane' review: A complex career woman by David Wiegand

Being Mary Jane: Made-for-TV film. 10:30 p.m. Tuesday, July 2 on BET; Series starts in January 2014.

"Being Mary Jane" is BET's first-ever original film, and by the time it's over, you'll be in love with the title character and find yourself thinking, "Wow, this should be a series."

And that's exactly what BET has in mind in the story of a career woman named Mary Jane Paul (Gabrielle Union) who has it all - and by "all," we mean the responsibility of taking care of her family, pursuing her career and trying to find meaning in her life through Post-it reminders bearing words of wisdom from Kathie Lee Gifford and Dante Alighieri.

She also has a boyfriend who says he loves her, but keeps his wedding ring in his pocket when he pays late-night booty calls.


The film, airing Tuesday, is notable for many things, including a solid cast and a script that's willing to take the time to explore character in a realistic way. At the start of the film, Mary Jane, a popular TV newsmagazine anchor, is playing hostess to her drunk boyfriend, Andre Daniels (Omari Hardwick).

Cirque du Soleil's 'Michael Jackson ONE' Premieres With Jackson Family Members, Celebrity Attendees



LAS VEGAS — Once was not enough.

Less than 20 months after the debut of the first Cirque du Soleil show paying tribute Michael Jackson comes the second: "Michael Jackson ONE"

Cirque president Daniel Lamarre said he'd planned two Jackson-inspired shows "from the first day we got the rights from the (Jackson) estate," with the first production, "Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL WORLD TOUR," delivering a stadium-sized concert-type presentation and "ONE," a more intimate affair.

The new show is something closer to what Cirque du Soleil usually serves up. It's a multimedia extravaganza that often flies high, but never loses sight of its inspiration.

Saturday's world premiere attracted celebrities including musician Justin Bieber, as well as actors Neil Patrick Harris, Allison Janney and Alfre Woodard.

Corey Feldman Reunites With 'Goonies' Co-Star For 'Ascension Millennium' Video



While Corey Feldman is hardly new to music videos — just check out his cameos in
Katy Perry's "Last Friday Night" and Mac Miller's "S.D.S." — the '80s icon had
never yet made a clip for his own music. That is, until now.

On Monday (July 1), MTV premiered the music video for "Ascension Millennium" off
Feldman's untitled August album. In the clip, the "Goonies" and "Stand By Me"
star takes us on a "journey through his world," which apparently includes
channeling Michael Jackson and hanging with angel-like women. Perhaps inspired
by his own cameos, Feldman decided to call upon an old friend to make a guest
appearance in his first music video.

Waiting for him with a map during the beginning moments of the video is none
other than Sean Astin — this is the first time the "Goonies" stars have shared
the screen in the past 25 years.

After Feldman is finally dressed in a studded leather jacket and leather gloves,
certainly a nod to his former pal MJ, he descends the staircase with two women
dressed in angel-like lingerie.

Feldman aggressively sings "Ascension Millennium" repeatedly into the camera as
he loops around his pool. Of course, Feldman had to include a Michael
Jackson-inspired dance sequence with a black fedora and signature Michael moves.
Proving he's just a regular guy, he grabs some pancakes and brings the video to
a close as he sings, "You got the feeling in your soul/ You just got to let it
go."

This isn't the first time Feldman has looked slightly devilish in a music video;
he played Mac Miller's arch-nemesis in "S.D.S." Mac and Corey broke down the
video for MTV News this past spring, with Feldman describing "all kinds of
madness" that went into the shoot.

AW HELL NO!!! Henry Cavill is Dating Kaley Cuoco???



Henry Cavill's love life just got super-charged with Big Bang's babe! After his 10-month relationship with actress Gina Carano fizzled in May, the Man of Steel hunk, 30, is now dating Kaley Cuoco, sources reveal exclusively to Us Weekly. "They are totally hot for each other," a pal says of the British actor and Big Bang Theory starlet, 27, who split with musician Bret Bollinger this past winter.

Although the movie and TV stars are keeping the romance hush-hush for now, Cuoco dropped a major hint to her 1.4 million Twitter followers June 14: Tweeting a photo of herself gazing adoringly at a Man of Steel poster, she urged her fans to see the mega-successful Superman reboot. "It's fantastic in every way," she raved.

For his part, Cavill is "a massive Big Bang Theory fan" and "has always wanted to date her," another insider says. Cuoco's past exes include addiction specialist Josh "Lazie" Resnik (they called off their engagement in March 2012) and her Big Bang costar Johnny Galecki -- she and Galecki, 36, kept their two-year romance completely under wraps.

Adds a source of Cavill: "He's excited to be dating her!"

Wade Robson asks FBI to release damning files revealing 'hush money' payments

A former child dancer accusing Michael Jackson of years of abuse will ask the FBI to release damning files on The King of Pop. Wade Robson’s lawyers hope the material, which claims Jackson paid £23 million to hush up “abuse victims”, will help win their case. Choreographer Wade, now 30, is suing Jackson’s estate claiming the star molested him time and time again when he was a child. This is despite the fact he denied being abused by Jackson at the 2005 trial when the star was cleared of abusing another child.Yesterday the Sunday People revealed the files show Jackson paid huge sums of hush money over 15 years. US crime-busters seized the material – including tapes, phone transcripts and names of 17 alleged victims – from an investigator who worked for the star. His documents were not passed to prosecutors in Jackson’s 2005 trial.

New TV Spot For 'Best Man Holiday'



lol @ 0:24

The story:

When the college friends finally reunite over the Christmas holidays, 15 years after the first film, they will discover just how easy it is for long-forgotten rivalries and romances to be ignited.

You'll recall Morris Chestnut sharing, in an interview last week, that his role in the upcoming sequel pushed him "like no other because the character was so emotionally conflicted. His emotions were high at some points but, for most points, they were very low. So I had to be in the headspace that I don’t like to go into often. That was extremely, extremely challenging. Probably, the most challenging to this day."

He went on to add that audiences are in for an emotional roller-coaster ride, and that this Best Man sequel is better than the first film. We'll find out in about 4 months.

Universal Pictures has set the release date for the sequel for November 15, 2013.

Drew Barrymore and Bella Thorne are currently in South Africa filming their latest movie, Blended, due out in 2014. While filming the romantic-comedy, the two realized they shared a mutual love of Drew’s Flower Beauty cosmetics line! Now Bella has joined Drew in her latest “Tip Tuesday” beauty tutorial video! Keep reading to find out details and and watch the video below.

Bella Thorne For Flower Beauty — Collaborates With Drew Barrymore
In the video, Drew and Bella chat about Bella’s current filming makeup, which was created with Flower products. Bella tells viewers that Drew’s makeup line is a true original. Some of her favorite unique products include Flower Zoom-In Ultimate Mascara. This mascara is a one of a kind thanks to it’s unique 3-in-1 brush that can change with the twist of a button depending on if you want curly or straight lashes. Bella also loves Flower Secret Service Cover-Up, a concealer that — according to Bella — “does not come off. All day, it does not come off.”

As far as eye shadows go, Bella is not a fan of powder colors that look like you’re wearing too much makeup. So she’s a huge fan of Flower Color Play Creme Eyeshadow, because it’s creamy, long-lasting, and easily removable so there’s no danger of your makeup caking.

For lips, both Bella and Drew are big fans of layering lip products to create a unique color. Bella loves Flower Sheer Up Lip Tint, especially when layered with Flower Lip Service Lip Butter in Sheer Snapdragon.

Iron Man 3 DVD/ Blu-Ray Release Date.

‘Iron Man 3′ Headed To DVD, Blu-Ray This September

ironman3

Shane Black’s hit sequel Iron Man 3 is coming to DVD and Blu-ray this September. If you missed the flick in theaters or are just anxious to watch the movie again, then you’ll be able to do so in just a matter of months. Marvel Studios and Disney are wasting absolutely no time getting this thing onto home video. According to the official press release, Iron Man 3 will arrive on Blu-ray and DVD on September 24. However, those who have kicked physical media to the curb can pick up a digital copy of the flick on September 3. However, you won’t get all of the nifty special features available in the packaged version.

The Blu-ray version of the film will feature a number of extras, including a gag reel, deleted and extended scenes, and a commentary from both director Shane Black and co-writer Drew Pearce. Fans who love feaurettes and behind-the-scenes documentaries will have plenty to pour over once this thing hits retail. In addition to a look at the creation of Iron Man 3, those who pick up the package will also get an exclusive look at Thor: The Dark World. However, the press release makes no mention of the footage released in China. Although Marvel previously stated the additional scenes would be cut together for a standalone short, it’s unknown if this will find its way onto the Blu-ray. Chances are this footage could be buried in the extended scenes section of the special features.

If you choose to pick up the flick on DVD, there’s a strong possibility you won’t get very many of these awesome special features. Those of you who are still on the fence about Blu-ray should strongly consider grabbing a player ahead of the film’s release on home video.

  • That interview make me more excited about Elysium than before, I think I might die when he starts singing the nursery rhyme in the film

  • Honestly Europa Report is a like-it or hate-it type of film, I thought it was okay but its definitely not for everyone, I believe what truly hurts it from being great is its non-linear story line.

  • And damn, those biceps, that's all I have to say

Player Hating? Protesters Claim Usher Stole Their Song! (Out With Bullhorns Picket Signs!)


R&B superstar Usher made $430-million on his chart-topping "Burn "

Songwriter Ernest Lee Straughter joined more than a dozen protesters Monday outside NBCUniversal Studios to demand the reality show judge on "The Voice" reach an equitable settlement.

"I just want a reasonable amount of money, then I'm gone," said Straughter, 62, of Riverside, a songwriter/pianist from Los Angeles who has played with the likes of Earth, Wind and Fire, Barry Manilow and Herbie Hancock, who had sued Usher for plagiarism in 2008. "I lost my house and everything, because I had to represent myself.

"I wrote the music," he said outside studio Gate 3 in Universal City. "Usher wrote the words. I just want my fair share for my family.

Straughter, who had originally sought 20 percent, or roughly $80 million, said he is now willing to settle for less. He lives with a fiance and three of his four children.

Russell Brand comments on disastrous Morning Joe appearance and Question Time

More from acute awareness of Instant Karma's immediate sting than morality, I have learned to treat people apparently lacking power with cordiality. This means that when I arrived at the New York studios of Morning Joe, the gleaming, informal mid-morning MSNBC news analysis show, I was polite to everyone there.


I was surprised by the soundman's impatient intrusiveness and yet more surprised as I stood just off set, beside the faux-newsroom near the pseudo-researchers who appear on camera as pulsating set dressing, when the soundman yapped me to heel with the curt entitlement of Idi Amin's PA. In response I wandered calmly from the studio and into the corridor, where a passing group of holidaymakers were enjoying the NBC tour. Often when you encounter rudeness from the crew, it is an indication that the show is not running smoothly, perhaps that day, or maybe in general.Collapse )

Fred Armisen leaves SNL



Fred Armisen has confirmed he has left "Saturday Night Live" after 11 years.

Armisen dispelled any doubt about his exit in an interview posted Monday by comedy website Splitsider.

"SNL" often doesn't announce its cast changes, but the show's season finale in May concluded with a farewell for Armisen and Bill Hader.

Armisen says he felt as though his departure from "SNL" was "obvious" considering in his last sketch he sang "It's been a lovely night with you" as British punk rock character Ian Rubbish. He was accompanied by several friends and musicians including Carrie Brownstein, his co-star on the IFC sketch show "Portlandia."

Armisen says he left partly because "Portlandia" was demanding more time and because "it felt like a very healthy, good time to do it."

Ruben Studdard Will Compete on The Biggest Loser Next Season



Ruben Studdard has already won the title of American Idol. Now he may become The Biggest Loser.

The "Velvet Teddy Bear," who won season 2 of the Fox singing competition in 2003, will compete on the NBC weight loss show as he attempts to battle his obesity – a task he has attempted previously with limited success.

"I was losing weight, but I was exhausted. It was making me sick," the 35-year-old told PEOPLE in 2006 after attempting an intense workout regimen on about 1,200 calories a day with trainer Gunnar Peterson.
"I'm a big man. There was no way to do those workouts on that amount of food, so everything was contradicting itself."

Studdard quit that weight-loss plan after losing just 12 lbs., but eventually found vegetarianism which – along with exercise – resulted in his losing more than 70 of his 455 lbs. in 2006.

Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton Receive 2013 Teen Choice Award Noms

the-voice-coaches
The Voice might be in between seasons, but that doesn’t mean that the celebrity coaches aren’t receiving plenty of praise. Season 5 coaches Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine, and Blake Shelton have all received 2013 Teen Choice Award nominations in a variety of categories.

Adam has been noticed for both his work on The Voice and with his band Maroon 5. The tattooed rocker was nominated for Choice Male TV Personality on the hit NBC singing competition and Maroon 5’s new hit “Love Somebody” earned a nomination in the Choice Group Single category.

Blake Shelton also racked up two noms: one competing with Adam in the Choice Male TV Personality category and the other for his single, “Boys ‘Round Here,” in the Choice Country Song category.

Xtina earned her nomination with rapper Pitbull for the song “Feel This Moment.” Obviously she would have picked up a Choice Female TV Personality nomination if she had been on the last season of The Voice.

We can’t wait to see these three return to the small screen this fall, and we’re excited that The Voice coaches are still being noticed for their hard work in both the television and music industries.

ONTD, do you think Blake will beat Adam in the TV category or vice versa? soundoff below!

Stanmode: I know Feel This Moment will win but my queen is not here for that, the best she would offer is to transmit a live feed from her usual couch, or worse her bedroom and they will deal. Yet ONTD's queens like to kiss a$$es, my queen remains raw with expensive taste

The 13 Dumbest Band Names in Rock History

It's not easy to pick a band name. After 60 years of rock & roll, everything has been taken. There's the Eagles and the Eagles of Death Metal, the Who and the Guess Who. There's Asia, Europe, Chicago, Boston and Kansas. If you want to pick a color and an animal, there's already White Lion and Whitesnake. If you like the word "wolf," get in line behind Wolfmother, Wolf Parade, We Are Wolves and Howlin' Wolf.

All this said, there's simply no excuse for picking a truly horrid band name, and rock is littered with them. Here are 13 bands with horrible names. Please note we aren't saying these bands suck, just their names. That'll become abundantly clear when you see the last group on the list.


Natalie Portman's Shaved Head
The 2005 movie V for Vendetta wasn't quite the massive box office success the filmmakers were aiming for, but it did introduce the the world to the Guy Fawkes mask commonly used by the activist group Anonymous. It also gave a bunch of high school kids from Seattle a really, really bad idea for a band name. Natalie Portman has no hair in V for Vendetta, so they named their band Natalie Portman's Shaved Head. Against all odds, the band became pretty popular even though they were hobbled by this horrid name. In 2010, they came to their senses and changed their name to Brite Futures.

"We chose our band name on a whim when we were still in high school," they said in a statement.  "And 'Natalie Portman’s Shaved Head' has seen us through an unexpectedly amazing four years . . . But now it is summer once again, and time for a change. Also, it has recently come to our attention that our muse Ms. Portman is not so keen on us using her name in ours . . . so we feel it is time to move forward with a new name. We are Brite Futures."

The band broke up two years later. Turns out their futures weren't so brite.

Rihanna "sings" No Doubt's "Don't Speak" on karaoke (lmao)


This is the moment Rihanna slurrs her way through a boozy karaoke session.

The controversial popstar, 25, grips the microphone and howls a cover of pop classic Don't Speak over the weekend.

At least three security guards were stood in front of the edgy singer to prevent onlookers taking pictures of the stumbling star.

The embarrassing singalong was filmed in the early hours at the Thai Royal bar in Cologne on June 29.

Rihanna, wearing a baseball cap, was joined by a female pal as she pulls dramatic poses and spins around for the shocked onlookers.

The Bajan star - who struggled to keep up with the famous lyrics - later burst into a rendition of Sex on Fire by King of Leon.

A witness says: "She had just ordered some drinks and fries for the table then just decided to get up and sing.

"It was nice to see her having a lot of fun and she was clearly enjoying herself on her time off."

MLB Investigators to Sit Down With 'Steroid Smoking Gun', A-Rod & Ryan Braun Are Pissing Themselves


Alex Rodriguez and Ryan Braun's ears should be burning -- baseball investigators are about to sit down with the whistleblower who claims he can prove they purchased performance enhancing drugs from a Miami clinic ... TMZ has learned.

Sources with direct knowledge of Major League Baseball's investigation tell us MLB officials will be meeting with Porter Fischer in Florida this week ... and he's expected to reveal his detailed records from the Biogenesis clinic. Fischer is an ex-employee at Biogenesis and claims to have the goods on more than 100 baseball players -- among them Braun and A-Rod -- who allegedly obtained banned PEDs from the clinic's owner Tony Bosch.

The Yankees just cleared Rodriguez for his first on-field action this season -- a minor league game -- as he continues to rehab from hip surgery. We're told the MLB meeting was brokered by Fischer's attorney, Ray Rafool -- and that MLB will pay Fischer a "consultant" fee in exchange for his cooperation.

Bottom line -- if Fischer has the mother lode he claims ... MLB could soon be handing down major suspensions.

Taylor Swift's "Taylor" fragrance commercial + Westboro Baptist Church calls her a "Proud Whore"


--

Add Taylor Swift to the Westboro Baptist Church's ever-growing list of people they've taken issue with. The Topeka, Kansas-based hate group has announced plans to picket Swift's Aug. 3 concert at the Sprint Center in Kansas City, Mo.

Swift is known for what sometimes seems like a revolving door of highly publicized romances, and the WBC apparently doesn't look too kindly on all her "fornicating." "@TaylorSwift13 works her 'girl next door' country-singer shtick, while hopping from one young man to the next and strutting across the world stage like a proud whore," the group wrote in a press release, and went on to criticize the singer's own father, claiming:

"He has no compunction about her immodest vulgar appearance or serial fornication. With a hating hypocrite for a dad – who will jealously guard her income, while not giving a thought for her never-dying soul – no wonder she grew up to be the poster child for the young whores of doomed-america [sic]."

The Pretty Reckless preview new track 'Burn'



Their second album--titled GOING TO HELL is due out in late 2013. The chaos-loving hard rock band will release new band updates on what they are calling “Hell Mondays.”

“This is not a new chapter in the life of the band; it's a new book,” says TAYLOR MOMSEN. “The band has matured and our sound has evolved dramatically. The record took almost a year to make. It’s gratifying knowing it’s nearing completion. I'm very excited to get new music out for our fans very soon.” TAYLOR adds, “The .xxx domain name seemed appropriately fitting and ‘Hell Mondays’ are intended to give our fans something to look forward to on what is arguably the most hellish day of the week."

The Pretty Reckless are working on the new album at Water Music in New Jersey, which had been severely damaged last fall by Hurricane Sandy. GOING TO HELL follows the group’s debut LP Light Me Up which went on to sell over 250,000 albums worldwide. After tours with Guns N’ Roses, Evanescence and Marilyn Manson in 2012, The Pretty Reckless will announce touring plans soon.

NBC's 'Siberia': What's the difference between 'real' and 'fake' reality?

Siberia

“This is just a show… isn’t it?”

You can hear someone asking that question in the trailer of Siberia, a new scripted drama about a reality TV show. (It premieres on NBC tonight, but you can watch the pilot early here.) The answer? Yeah, it’s just a show. But what reality TV program isn’t? Siberia proves that it’s getting harder to tell the difference between a “real” show and a scripted one. But maybe it’s fitting that NBC is combining fiction and reality at a time when so many unscripted events have blurred the lines between dramatic television and real-life tragedy.

When Siberia begins, it looks a lot like Survivor. Sixteen contestants are dropped off in the middle of nowhere, somewhere in Siberia, and each is trying to survive longer than the others without any equipment or food in the remote territory of Tunguska. Their host, Jonathon Buckley (played by the real-life Jonathon Buckley, former host of Lifetime’s 2012 reality competition Love for Sail) informs them that they need to make their way to the remains of a primitive trading outpost that was found abandoned in 1908. The fires were still burning and the food was still cooking on the stoves in this settlement, but all the inhabitants had disappeared. After the contestants race to the settlement, the last man and woman to arrive are eliminated, and the others are left to try to build fires, hunt for mushrooms… and avoid whatever is making the creepy sound in the forest. Rest assured: By the end of the first episode, something will go terribly, horribly wrong.

We Listen to Indie Bands Online, But Pay to See Madonna Live?


In many ways, it’s never been easier for small-time musicians to break out and build devoted followings; Pandora, Spotify, and iTunes offer tons of obscure music to fans, obliterating the old barrier of the tightly curated record store, while Twitter and Facebook carry even the smallest bands’ promotional messages, nuking advertising and PR costs.

But this sort of disruption has yet to significantly affect the live performance business, according to data newly compiled by a leading rock-and-roll economist. Niche acts apparently retain as tiny a share of concert receipts as they did a decade ago. That apparent stasis is particularly troubling for independent artists given the growing importance to the music business of concerts, which have become a last bastion of big profits as real prices and total sales of recorded music fall under pressure from online file sharing and cheap streaming services.

Over the past two weeks, Princeton economist Alan Krueger has updated concert revenue data underlying his two landmark rockonomics papers from 2004 and 2005 (one a solo act, the other produced as part of a band). The papers showed, among other things, that top artists markedly increased their share of concert revenue over 20 years, with the top 1 percent taking 56 percent of revenue in 2003 versus 26 percent in 1982. The eight-year-old papers garnered fresh attention earlier this month when Krueger, who between gigs chairs the president’s Council of Economic Advisors, cited them during a talk at the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame: “Rock and Roll, Economics, and Rebuilding the Middle Class.”
