Nude ‘Project Runway’ Billboard Banned in Los Angeles


When it comes to billboards in Los Angeles, it seems Heidi Klum’s catchphrase applies: you’re either in, or you’re out.

The billboard for “Project Runway’s” 12th season, in this case, is very much out in the city of Los Angeles.

Lifetime confirmed to Variety that the season 12 art — complete with nude models worshiping a costumed Heidi Klum and Tim Gunn — will not be on display in the Los Angeles area due to nudity. According to the Los Angeles Department of Building and Safety, signs containing “obscene matters” can be prohibited by the city.

Kate Middleton and Prince William Receive the Most Unbelievable Royal Baby Gift Yet!



Remember just last week when Kate Middleton and Prince William received their first royal baby gift and it was a cardboard box? [What now?] Well, the gifts keep on rollin' in - and this week, they're even crazier! Kate was reportedly given a $15,000 bracelet that doubles as a diaper cream holder. I kid you not, folks - a bracelet that moonlights as a portable diaper cream container. Modern marvels, y'all!

British jeweler Theo Fennell, whose long list of celebrity clientele includes David and Victoria Beckham, Elton John and Madonna, has gifted the royal mum-to-be with his most lavish, over-the-top creation yet! Fennell was commissioned by Sudocrem (an antiseptic healing cream company) to create a jewel-encrusted 18-karat white gold charm bracelet that doubles as a diaper rash cream holder. Worth more than $15,000, the bracelet is designed to keep Kate looking posh and elegant as ever even when she's applying rash cream to the royal baby's bum! The bracelet has a small, jeweled container that the Duchess can use to stash the perfect amount of diaper cream. Even though the gift might seem just a wee bit too much, Fennell is over-the-moon for the chance to work with the royal family. He said, "I am thrilled to make this miniature pot and bracelet for Sudocrem."

Quite the assortment of gifts there. Curious who will end up buying that bracelet because it seems really silly.

Rihanna's Back With Jimmy Brooks


Rihanna has reportedly moved on from Chris Brown by dating her former flame Drake.

The pop star recently called time on her relationship with US singer Chris Brown, after dating him on and off since 2008.

Rihanna is said to have since moved on with her ex-boyfriend, rapper Drake, who she was involved with in 2010 and 2011.

"When she was dating Chris, he banned her from talking to Drake," a source close to Rihanna told the latest edition of UK magazine Look. "She really missed him in that time - yes, they went out years before but he was also a good friend to her - so calling him was one of the first things she did when she realised she was over Chris."

Adult Babby Pisses Into Restaurant Mop Bucket



Justin Bieber is an oblivious, self-important little twit who goes out of his way to make the working man's life miserable -- just watch this video of the singer pissing into a restaurant mop bucket ... and laughing like he's the king of the world.

The clip was shot in NYC earlier this year -- we're told Bieber and his idiotic friends were leaving some nightclub, exiting through a restaurant kitchen, and Bieber decided he needed to take a leak.

But rather than go to a bathroom like a civilized person, Bieber -- wearing pants that should literally be illegal -- whipped out his baby dick and whizzed into a yellow mop bucket used to clean the restaurant's floors ... meaning whoever's job it was to mop the place up had to physically change Bieber's disgusting piss water.


And the worst part ... Bieber's friends act like the restaurant should be HONORED that the singer decided to piss there. It's revolting.

We can't say for sure if the group was drunk, but it sure sounds like they were.

Oh yeah, at the end of the video, Bieber sprays a photo of Bill Clinton with cleaning liquid for some reason ... saying, "Fuck Bill Clinton!"

We don't know what Bill Clinton did to Justin Bieber ... but whatever it was, Bieber probably deserved it. Thank you, Bill. Thank you.

omg i hope someone collected that piss and put it on ebay.

HBO Sets Prop 8 Documentary


HBO is turning its documentary lens on same-sex marriage.

The premium cable network said Tuesday that it has begun production on a telefilm focusing on the landmark Supreme Court case that overturned Proposition 8, California's ban on same-sex marriage.


Over the past five years, directors Ben Cotner and Ryan White have had exclusive access to the legal team led by conservative Ted Olson and liberal David Boies as well as the lives of the four plaintiffs in the case.

The untitled feature will be completed by year's end for a 2014 debut.

"The story of the battle to overturn Prop 8 is the story of a modern-day American revolution,” HBO programming president Michael Lombardo said. “HBO is proud to present what is intended to be the film of record on this landmark case.”

The lawsuit against Prop 8 was backed by the American Foundation for Equal Rights on behalf of couples Kris Perry and Sandy Stier and Jeffrey Zarillo and Paul Katami. The documentary will tell the story of the people behind the case and their respective journeys to secure marriage equality in California -- and for all Americans.

The Supreme Court invalidated Prop 8 on June 26, handing a major victory to same-sex couples in California. A majority of justices ruled that the petitioner in the case lacked standing and invalidated the anti-gay marriage legislation, clearing the way for same-sex marriages to resume in the state.

“I’ve always said that the best evidence in this case is to hear our clients tell their stories," Olson said. "Paul, Jeff, Kris and Sandy have been brave enough to share their lives with the courts and now with the world. As Ben and Ryan tell this incredible story -- that for me was the most important case I’ve ever worked on -- people will inevitably be moved by getting to know these amazing individuals.”

Josh Braun of Submarine Entertainment and Victoria Cook of Frankfurt Kurnit Klein & Selz negotiated the deal with HBO.

First Reviews For 'PACIFIC RIM' Rise From The Depths With Mostly Positive Notices




Maybe the only thing you need to know about Guillermo del Toro's movie of monster mayhem is that Kanye West has declared it one of his favorite movies of all time. Certainly, the chatter around the big blockbuster movie has largely centered on its tracking, which has it on course to fall behind "Grown Ups 2" when it opens this weekend. Well, Warner Bros. has certainly been working hard to turn the tide with a marketing barrage of clips, featurettes and more, but whether or not it's enough remains to be seen. But they have one more hurdle to contend with... actual reviews.


The first assessments of "Pacific Rim" rose on the icy waters of the critical ocean today and they're mostly positive, which will no doubt be a relief to executives and what's more, thus far there are no outright pans of the movie, and it looks unlikely to get the kind of roasting "The Lone Ranger" did. It seems the bottom line is that those just going in for a crackin' good time will get their money's worth, but those looking for a bit more meat and potatoes may be left wanting for a bit more out of the monster mayhem. So let's dive in and see what the critics thought, from best to worst.



"Pacific Rim" crashes into theaters on July 12th.

Architect Zaha Hadid's Chrome High Heels Arrive From the Future. Put on your fiercest heels, ONTD!




A great shoe is all about design, so who better to create high heels than an acclaimed architect? Zaha Hadid, the Iraqi-British architect known for her futuristic buildings, has partnered with United Nude's creative director, architect Rem D. Koolhaas (the nephew of the great Dutch architect, Rem Koolhaas), on some insane, space-age heels we can already picture on the feet of Lady Gaga.


The 6.25-inch NOVA heels appear to be heelless, but the architect claims to have engineered a comfortable shoe that you won't topple over in. The materials are equally creative, with the outside of the shoe using metallic chromed vinyl rubber in either silver, black, or rose gold. The result looks like something out of a sci-fi movie. The sole is rubber and contains a hidden platform and heel made of fiberglass, while luxurious Italian nappa leather lines the shoe's interior.

Meryl Streep's daughter, Grace Gummer joins the Cast of The Newsroom

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


"The Newsroom" Season 2 premieres on July 14 (10 p.m. ET) and in preparation, HBO has released a behind-the-scenes video introducing some of the new characters joining the cast this year.

First, we're introduced to Marcia Gay Harden's Rebecca Halliday, a First Amendment lawyer who has the unenviable task of trying to keep our outspoken characters from saying the wrong thing during a deposition or cross examination. The video also features Jerry Dantana (Hamish Linklater) a veteran of ACN's DC Bureau who has moved to replace Jim (John Gallagher Jr.) while he's away covering the Romney campaign in New Hampshire.

Also involved in Jim's storyline are Hallie Shea (Grace Gummer), a fellow reporter embedded on the bus with Jim on the road, and Taylor Warren (Constance Zimmer) a Romney campaign spokesperson. Hear from the new cast members and executive producers in the video below, and let us know what you're most looking forward to about "The Newsroom" Season 2 in the comments.

Has Disney Lost Its Movie Magic?

 photo 3c51ab99-fc5a-4acb-98dd-78c52a1d987f_zps5609ae09.jpg

Following its disappointing opening weekend, "The Lone Ranger" continues to drastically underperform at the box office. It's a bomb that could cost Disney roughly $190 million once the dust settles.

But the masked man isn't alone in Disney's dunces' corner. Last year the epic-sized "John Carter," went $200 million in the red. Add to that 2011's "Mars Needs Moms" and 2010's "The Sorcerer's Apprentice" — were both major misses for Disney (see list below). The list of attempts to create gigantic franchise hit machines that died in the cradles with their first film now stretches out a mile long — "Haunted Mansion" "Country Bears" and "Prince of Persia" to name a few.

So has Disney lost that special spirit that made its name almost synonymous with feel good, family entertainment for so long? Has Tinkerbell's fairy dust blown away from the movie studio?

Yes and no. Disney has done well with the "Pirates of the Caribbean" and "National Treasure" series (the latter of which oddly had only two installments), but the majority of their critical and commercial successes over the past several years have mostly come from films released through Pixar and Marvel Studios, two companies the Mouse House acquired; purchases that Paul Dergarabedian of Hollywood.com calls "two of the best corporate decisions ever made." While they may not bear the Disney label, the profits for this year's hit "Monsters University" and last year's smash "The Avengers" go into the same pockets.

Brandi Glanville Redefined Class And Elegance Last Night


In case you couldn’t tell from her tit falling out of the nursery curtains she calls a dress or the full view of her tampon string gracefully hanging out of her twat, Brandi Glanville reached RiRi-like levels of plastered while partying with her “gaysin West Hollywood last night. Well, I guess if you’re going to rock out with your cock tampon string out and get so damn drunk that you get into a wrestling match with your own dress and lose, you should do it while your best gay friends are around.


Since Brandi Glanville’s getting attention for being a broke off, dozed off mess last night, expect her dragonized shadow LeAnn Rimes to do the same thing tonight. Great. Just what our retinas need. Pictures of Falkor Rimes’ luck dragon titty balls falling out of her chiffon whisper of a dress as the string to her cooch plug dangles in front of the camera. Thanks a lot, Brandi!

Andrew Garfield discusses Spider-Man's sexuality - "Why can't he be gay"?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Andrew Garfield has loved Spider-Man since he was a little kid. He can speak eloquently and at length about how open the Spider-verse is for interpretation. Recently, he says, he had a philosophical discussion with producer Matt Tolmach about Mary Jane or “MJ” to fans. “I was kind of joking, but kind of not joking about MJ,” he tells EW. “And I was like, ‘What if MJ is a dude?’ Why can’t we discover that Peter is exploring his sexuality? It’s hardly even groundbreaking!…So why can’t he be gay? Why can’t he be into boys?”

Garfield even has an actor in mind: “I’ve been obsessed with Michael B. Jordan since The Wire. He’s so charismatic and talented. It’d be even better—we’d have interracial bisexuality!” The star has clearly suggested a sexually flexible Spidey to his director, Marc Webb, as well. When EW later mentions the idea to Webb, the director says, “Michael B. Jordan, I know.” Oh, so he’s heard this too? “Uh, are you kidding?”

New Oh Land's My Boxer

Oh Land, a.k.a. Nanna Øland Fabricius, will release her third album, Wish Bone, later this year via Federal Prism, the boutique label run by TV on the Radio's Dave Sitek. The Danish singer-songwriter's upcoming LP — the follow-up to 2011's self-titled effort — was mostly produced by Sitek, with first taste "My Boxer" being an exception. London-based studio wizard Dan Carey (Bat for Lashes, Chairlift) produced and co-wrote the slinky banger, which bobs and weaves with jabbing percussion, glitchy electronics, and a dangerously hummable melody.

Idris Elba is something of an icon, even if you can't remember his name. The British-born actor has done everything from HBO's immortal series "The Wire" (recently named, by Entertainment Weekly, as the greatest show of all time) to portraying a super-heroic gatekeeper in Marvel's "Thor" and its upcoming sequel "Thor: The Dark World." He can literally do anything -- and often does.

WHITNEY HOUSTON'S DAUGHTER I'M ENGAGED! ... and He's NOT My Brother


Whitney Houston's daughter Bobbi Kristina is OFFICIALLY ENGAGED ... but she wants everyone to know it's not an incest thing -- 'cause her future hubby is not her BIOLOGICAL brother.

BK posted the announcement on Facebook early this morning ... saying she's set to tie the knot with Nick Gordon ... the guy who Whitney brought into the family home and helped raise at an early age.

FYI -- Whitney referred to Nick as her "son" ... but never legally adopted him.

"YES, we me nick [sic] are engaged," Bobbi wrote ... "I'm tired of hearing people say 'eww your engaged to your brother or if Whitney was still alive would we be together or would she approve of this.'"

"Let me clear up something, we aren't even real brother and sister nor is he my adoptive brother. My mom never adopted him. In fact, mommy was the one who even said that she knew that we were going to start dating."

She continues, "My mom knows me better than any of you. A lot of yall are saying that yall are only saying this all out of love. Which is bull because if that was so, all you would want is for me to be happy."

"People need to seriously stop judging my relationship. Pretty sure it's my own decision who I want to be with. Yes, my relationship may not be perfect. We will have rough patches, just like every other relationship. And we have had our rough patches. You may or may not agree with my relationship. You may or may not respect it. Judge me, go ahead. Your opinions are yours and mine are mine. It is my life and not yours. The decisions I make have nothing to do with you. Goodnight."

New couple Jesse Eisenberg and Mis Wasikowska spotted sucking face



Now you see them ... kissing.

Two kind of dirty and homeless looking people Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska were photographed in Toronto on Tuesday, their public display of affection going beyond the hand-holding previously seen.

With Eisenberg, 29, in a blue T-shirt and sneakers and Wasikowska covered up in a black long-sleeved top and wide-legged pants, the pair was also snapped strolling the city streets looking very much like a couple in love.

The Oscar-nominated star of The Social Network and most recently Now You See Me costarred with Wasikowska, 23, in The Double, a comedy about a man who is driven insane by the appearance of his doppelgänger.

First Reviews of Neill Blomkamp's 'Elysium' Praise Droids & CGI



So how is it? "Elysium is definitely everything you are hoping for. It's an incredible sci-fi adventure! The most astonishing was the CGI that didn't look like CGI.

Channing Tatum, Jenna Dewan-Tatum's Baby Girl Everly: Close-Up Picture!



Baby Everly is ready for her close-up! Channing Tatum and Jenna Dewan-Tatum's adorable 1-month-old baby girl, Everly, was spotted out in L.A. with her mom on Saturday, July 6.
Looking a little sleepy, Everly gave photographers a glimpse of her beautiful face and dark brown hair while looking over her mother's shoulder. Dewan-Tatum, 32, cradled her daughter while preparing to go for a ride in the car.

The next day, the whole family was photographed together making their way through LAX airport. The new parents worked together as Tatum, 33, carried Everly in a sling around his chest, and while Dewan-Tatum ushered their dog through security.

During a June 27 interview on Chelsea Lately, the White House Down actor joked that he was useless -- and very, very emotional -- while his wife gave birth. "I probably went to the bathroom four times and had a crying fit," he quipped. "Like, I'm just like, 'I don't know what to do!' . . . "It's like someone's hurting, someone that you love, and you can't do anything about it. You physically cannot help."
"I'm still not helping -- and the baby's out!" Tatum joked. "Men are useless, but we are really useless during this. The baby's gonna come out whether you're there or not."

Tell Us: Do you think baby Everly looks more like dad Channing or mom Jenna?

Red Band Trailer for Spike Lee's 2013 Remake of 'Oldboy'



When it comes to Spike Lee's upcoming remake of Oldboy there is instantly an audience divide: those that say Chan-wook Park's original and those that haven't. In the world of the Internet that means the film is going to be picked apart as will the marketing with people saying, "They're showing too much! That looks too much like the original! I guess they didn't go back to the source material!" and on and on it will go.

Today FilmDistrict has revealed the first trailer for the film and it's of the red band variety so if you're at work you may want to put the headphones on or watch during your lunch hour.

As for the story, it follows an advertising executive (Josh Brolin) who is kidnapped and held hostage for 20 years in solitary confinement without any indication of his captor's motive. When he is inexplicably released, he embarks on an obsessive mission to discover who orchestrated his bizarre and torturous punishment only to find he is still trapped in a web of conspiracy and torment. His quest for revenge leads him into an ill-fated relationship with a young social worker (Elizabeth Olsen) and ultimately to an illusive man (Sharlto Copley) who allegedly holds the key to his salvation.

Personally I'm very excited to see where this one goes and anticipating its October 25 release, and who knows, maybe FilmDistrict will bring it to Toronto? After all, Park's played the fest back in 2004 and wouldn't this make for one hell of a Midnight Madness premiere?

I'm just gonna say that I love Sharlto's accent in this, that is all (smh that he wasn't in the trailer though)

Has Mariah Carey lost her voice? Lies, fairytales, & fallacies!


Following Mariah Carey’s impressive showing at the 2013 Macy’s 4th of July Fireworks Spectacular last week, many of her fans and critics claimed that she had not sounded that good since the 1990s. Yet, the industry’s top diva actually had several other great live performances after the year 2000 and I’ve gathered ten of the best for your review!

As a result of her struggles with vocal nodules and other personal issues that she has yet to reveal, Carey’s voice has suffered some wear and tear, and her recent live performances have been hit or miss. Of course, having set the bar for herself so high during the glory days of her youth, many people still expect perfection and similar to her fellow icon Celine Dion, Carey now often resorts to lip-syncing many of her famous high notes.

However, does that mean that Carey has completely lost her touch and “can’t sing anymore” as many of her detractors claim? Check out ten of her best live performances post-2000 and decide for yourself:

Good for this list for not invalidating itself by choosing lipped performances.

Jay-Z seeks to represent Yasiel Puig


Burgeoning agent Jay-Z is wooing Los Angeles Dodgers star Yasiel Puig, hoping to add the 22-year-old to the growing stable of athletes he represents, two sources told Yahoo! Sports.

During a mid-June trip to New York, Puig was invited to a party at a club Jay-Z owns after a Dodgers teammate passed along the rapper's contact information, one source said. Between the lifestyle and marketing plan offered by Roc Nation Sports, Puig left the meeting intrigued.

While Puig has spoken with at least one more marketing agency in New York, the prospect of his joining Roc Nation as a client covering both baseball contracts and marketing remains a possibility, sources said.

After signing New York Yankees second baseman Robinson Cano as his first client, Jay-Z, who made the bulk of his half-billion-dollar fortune in the music industry, has targeted players from other sports: Thunder star Kevin Durant, WNBA rookie Skylar Diggins, and Jets quarterback Geno Smith.

Jay-Z also is known to be interested in signing another Cuban baseball player, Oakland A's outfielder Yoenis Cespedes, according to a source. Next week, Cespedes will be in New York, Jay-Z's hometown, for the Home Run Derby, and Puig could be as well if he wins the Final Vote for the last slot on the National League All-Star team.

In the song "Crown" on his recently released album, Magna Carta Holy Grail, Jay-Z took a shot at prominent baseball agent Scott Boras, rapping: "Scott Boras, you over, baby. Robinson Cano, you coming with me." While Boras declined to fire back, agents around baseball have questioned the wisdom in signing with a fledgling agency run by somebody with no experience negotiating sports contracts. Roc Nation Sports has partnered on the baseball side with Creative Artists Agency.
Were Puig to leave for Roc Nation, his current agent, Jaime Torres, would receive the full commission on the seven-year, $42 million deal signed in June 2012.

New trailer for The Canyons

IFC Films has released the trailer for director Paul Schrader and screenwriter Bret Easton Ellis' The Canyons starring Lindsay Lohan, James Deen, Nolan Gerard Funk and Amanda Brooks. The film will be available on iTunes and in theaters on August 2.

Christian is a young LA trust-fund dude who's financing a horror film simply to keep his dad off his back about doing something with his life. He has been dating Tara for about a year — she was an aspiring actress/model who settled down with him when the reality of the business became apparent to her. She's now just Christian's bored plaything. Christian's assistant Gina is casting the film with assistance from Tara. Gina is pushing Ryan, her boyfriend and struggling actor, for the lead. Unbeknownst to either Christian or Gina, Ryan and Tara were a couple three years ago. When Ryan came back into Tara's life during the auditions for the movie, they reignited their affair. But Christian, a dangerous control-freak, finds out about the affair and starts playing cruel mind games with both Tara and Ryan, which escalate into an act of bloody violence.

New Girl Exclusive: Damon Wayans Jr. Poised to Rejoin Cast for Major Season 3 Stint



Happy Endings‘ Damon Wayans Jr. is thisclose to hooking up with the Girl that got away.

TVLine has learned exclusively that Wayans is nearing a deal to reprise his New Girl role of Coach for a significant Season 3 arc.

You’ll recall Wayans appeared in the New Girl pilot, but was forced to drop out when Happy Endings scored a surprise Season 2 renewal; Lamorne Morris’s Winston was brought in to fill the void. Endings‘ official (and extremely unfortunate) demise paved the way for Wayans’ likely return. (Fox declined to comment for this story.)

Jake Johnson, who’s currently shooting the comedy Let’s Be Cops with Wayans in Atlanta, kicked up the Coach comeback buzz last month when he told TVLine in the wake of Happy Endings ABC cancellation that he’d be thrilled to “welcome [Wayans'] back to the loft,” adding, “I would be surprised if he doesn’t come back for a while. There would be such funny episodes with the Coach seeing what’s happened in the past two years since he’s [been] gone.”

if this happens, I will be so happy and it will very slightly soothe my sadness over the canceling Happy Endings...

Lindsay Lohan Moving In With Dina! Rehab Counsellors Holding Intervention Over Bad Choice


Lindsay Lohan is getting yet another intervention, but this time it’s to steer clear of any extended time with her mother Dina! Lohan, who is more than halfway through her court-ordered rehab stint at Cliffside Malibu, had been planning on living with her mom back in Long Island after her rehab stint, but her rehab counselors are trying to tell her that it’s a bad idea. Lohan’s counselors are concerned that her mom could be both an enabler and a bad influence, which could lead to a relapse.

Lohan is being advised by her rehab counselors to move into a sober living facility, but Lohan is reportedly against the idea of living with strangers any longer than necessary, and is longing for the comforts of home. "[Lindsay and Dina] have been known to go out clubbing and drinking together. Lindsay doesn’t need a friend in her parents, she needs Dina to act as her mother,” an insider said to Radar Online. “However, Lindsay has no desire to move into a sober living facility.

Despite earning millions throughout her career, money is also reportedly a concern for Lohan as she finds a new place to live. Although she cleared nearly $2 million in 2011 through movie projects and various promotional appearances, most of that went towards her insane legal fees. Lohan also owed over $290,000 in unpaid taxes to the IRS for unpaid bills between the years of 2009-2011. Her Scary Movie 5 co-star Charlie Sheen wrote her a $100,000 check to cover her 2009 debt, but Lohan still ended up being responsible for well over half the total debt.

However, what money can’t buy Lohan (outside of rehab, of course) is a supportive group of people who are vested in her sobriety. She has also talked about staying with friends, but, according to the source, that “opens up another can of worms because most of her pals are party animals….time will tell how seriously she is taking her latest stint at recovery.”

Meanwhile, Dina told the New York Daily News that her daughter would “definitely” begin her new sober life back at home, adding that she was looking forward to seeing Lohan before then. “We’re going to work it out to all go visit her again and then we’re planning a pool party,” she said.

When Lohan finishes her rehab stint, she has reportedly been hired by entertainment website Celebuzz to blog about “lessons learned” during her rehab experience.

sounds like a good plan, nothing will go wrong, she'll remain 100% sober, her career will be better than ever, etc. etc.

Daft Punk Were 'The First People Kanye Came To' When Making Yeezus


From the second he strode onto the "Saturday Night Live" stage to perform "Black Skinhead," Kanye West served noticed that his Yeezus album was going to be a departure.

And though he worked with a team of producers to shape his new sound, apparently none had the influence that Daft Punk did ... at least that's what the robots are telling Vibe magazine.

In a new interview, Daft's Thomas Bangalter says that West consulted with the dynamic duo just as he was beginning work on Yeezus, and that the ideas they came up with laid the foundation for his arty, aggressive album.

"We were the first people that Kanye came to," Bangalter revealed. "He really responded positively to those ideas we were throwing out to him. And then he ran with it and built the record, working with a lot of other producers and based on maybe some of the initial directions that we had laid out together."

It makes sense, then, that the first three songs on Yeezus — "On Sight," "I Am a God" and "Skinhead" — were all produced by Daft Punk. And, though Kanye has been adamant about pushing hip-hop into the future, it turns out that one of his album's most memorable tracks was actually rescued from the robots' Random Access Memories scrap heap.

"The first track we did was 'Black Skinhead,'" Bangalter explained. "The drums we had recorded earlier during the recording of our album, so we had those. It was a great twist of pushing the envelope."

Speaking of envelope pushing, by now you've seen the leaked, unfinished version of the "Black Skinhead" video, which began "making the rounds Monday, much to 'Ye's dismay. The finished version of the clip is apparently due "within the next week."

Why your e-books cost a shit-ton -- Apple found guilty of E-book price conspiracy

Were you wondering why that latest e- book in the multi-part series you’d gotten hooked on was suddenly jacked up to $12.99 or $14.99? Were you scratching your head at why the paperback version was cheaper?

Well, wonder no more. Our good friend Apple is to blame.



Apple Inc. conspired to raise the prices of e-books, a judge ruled Wednesday morning, after a trial in which the Department of Justice accused the technology giant of aggressively pressuring publishers to raise prices and weaken Amazon.com.

U.S. District Judge Denise Cote ruled that Apple is liable for civil antitrust violations, more than two weeks after closing arguments.

“The Plaintiffs have shown that Apple conspired to raise the retail price of e-books and that they are entitled to injunctive relief. A trial on damages will follow,” Cote wrote in her opinion.
In a trial that lasted three weeks, federal prosecutor Mark Ryan argued that when it entered the e-book market in April 2010, Apple offered publishers a way to fight back against Amazon by raising the prices of e-books. Prices went up shortly thereafter, and Apple negotiated 30% of the profits.

The government showed that Apple executive Eddy Cue was in contact via email and phone with representatives of the five publishers who ultimately signed agreements with the company, calls that led the publishers to switch how they distributed and priced their books.

In her ruling, Cote wrote that there is no doubt that publishers conspired to raise the prices of their e-books. They were afraid, she writes, that Amazon’s $9.99 price point for bestsellers would completely upset their business model. But Apple was the ringleader -- publishers had tried to get Amazon to raise prices in 2009 and 2008, and failed by themselves.

“Apple was a knowing and active member of that conspiracy. Apple not only willingly joined the conspiracy, but also forcefully facilitated it,” she writes.

I knew there was something amiss. When I first got my kindle I don’t recall ever paying more than $6 or $7 bucks for a book. The last two books I got from Amazon as part of a series (Iced from the Faefever series and Lover at Last from the Black Dagger Brotherhood series were 13.99 and 11.99 respectively. I was like WTF but I obviously wanted to continue the series so I bit the bullet and got punked on the pricing.

I hope they end up having to refund everyone who paid over $9.99 for an e-book. Fuckers.

First Official Saving Mr. Banks Photo with Tom Hanks as Walt Disney



Saving Mr. Banks follows the tumultuous relationship between Walt Disney and P.L. Travers as they work to bring the beloved Childrens' novel Mary Poppins to the big screen. About the role of the disgruntled author, Emma Thompson had this to say.

"She's the most difficult person I've ever played. She was a woman of quite eye-watering complexity and contradiction. Often I play people who are controlled by some very clear guiding moral principles. Like Margarete Schlegel [in Howards End], guided by the early principles of feminism and equal rights, and Elinor Dashwood [in Sense and Sensibility], guided by the principles of decency and honor. There are very clear moral prisms these women pour life through, and I understand that very well. And [P.L. Travers] was not like that at all. She was far more chaotic and confused and morally various.

There's a tendency to cast aside a children's author or children's film and make it seem less important than those for an adult audience. Of course, I think it's the other way around. You can get away with dropping the ball from time to time with adult audiences but children know. You've really got to do your best. Letting them down is a serious failure in your artistic integrity."


Saving Mr. Banks comes to theaters December 13th, 2013 and stars Tom Hanks, Colin Farrell, Paul Giamatti, Emma Thompson, Kathy Baker, Jason Schwartzman, Ruth Wilson, B.J. Novak. The film is directed by John Lee Hancock.

New Showtime series 'Ray Donovan' is slaying.

As 'Ray Donovan,' Liev Schreiber Cleans Up Hollywood's Messes

In the new Showtime series Ray Donovan, Liev Schreiber stars in the title role as a man who knows how to handle a crisis. It's Donovan's job to clean up the messes of Hollywood's rich and powerful while trying to keep his own personal problems under wraps.

  A TV series is something of a new turn for Schreiber, who's been acting onstage and in movies for two decades. But playing complicated characters is something he's earned a reputation for, with roles in films like Defiance and The Manchurian Candidate.

He won a Tony Award for his portrayal of Richard Roma in the 2005 Broadway production of Glengarry Glen Ross, David Mamet's drama about real estate agents who are out to get each other.



A variation on this theme draws Schreiber to Ray Donovan. Donovan is hardly loquacious and, as Schreiber tells Fresh Air's Dave Davies, "not having the cloak of dialogue was another interesting exercise: How do you play these things? How do you keep a character alive without words?"



Beneath Donovan's seeming composure is a great deal of personal conflict that surfaces when his father is released prematurely from prison and reappears in Donovan's life. This tension between calm and torment, says Schreiber, is central to contemporary masculinity.


"What really drew me to the original pilot script and [to] meeting Ann [Biderman]," he says, "was her fascination with masculinity, and what it was about masculinity that was compelling and elusive. Particularly the idea that with great rage and with great violence comes great vulnerability."

Cote de Pablo leaving NCIS

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Cote de Pablo is invoking Gibbs’ Rule No. 11 — “When the job is done, walk away” — and has decided to leave CBS’ NCIS.

The actress — whose contract expired at the end of Season 10 — will appear at the start of Season 11 (premiering Sept. 24) to conclude Ziva’s story.

“I’ve had eight great years with NCIS and Ziva David,” the actress shares. “I have huge respect and affection for Mark, Gary, Michael, David, Rocky, Pauley, Brian, Sean, all of the team and CBS. I look forward to finishing Ziva’s story.”

In a statement, CBS said, “We respect Cote’s decision, thank her for being an important part of the NCIS team, and for eight terrific years playing Ziva David. Cote and CBS share a great respect for the NCIS audience, and we look forward to working with her and the producers on appropriate closure in this chapter of Ziva’s story.”

News of De Pablo’s departure comes at the proverbial 11th hour, since NCIS is due to resume production next week. Her future with the show has been conspicuously in question since the spring, when her character of Ziva was steered into a dangerous mission of vengeance, at one point winding up in a (seemingly) brutal car crash.

Amanda Bynes looking for treatment for anger issues, serious about rap career


Could The Amanda Bynes Show be coming to an end soon?

A source close to the former child star told FOX411's Pop Tarts column that Bynes returned to her Los Angeles roots last week to seek out treatment options.

“Amanda isn’t crazy, she just has lots of anger issues and knows she needs help dealing with that,” explained the insider, adding that the 27-year-old likes the idea of a team of helpers including medical professionals, a life coach, etc. “She’s determined to pull it all together.”

Bynes flew back to New York on Sunday to make a scheduled court hearing regarding her May arrest for allegedly tossing a bong from the window of her 36th floor Manhattan apartment window. Manhattan Criminal Court Judge Diana Boyar ordered the ex-Nickelodeon star to appear in court again on September 26. We’re told she intends to return to the West Coast this week to continue coordinating a treatment plan.

But while our source insists her sanity is not in question, Bynes’ bizarre behavior hasn’t slowed. Her Tuesday court outfit included false eyelashes, an aquamarine blue wig, sweats, and a Rolex watch set to Friday afternoon.

On Monday, Bynes also continued to her “ugly” tirade on Twitter, this time out-of-the-blue declaring that “Barack Obama and Michelle Obama are ugly!”

Bynes also continued her fixation with physical appearance, posting pictures of her scale weight loss and lamenting that she “loves plastic surgery” but “hates taking pictures with a broken nose.” According to Bynes, “my surgeon broke my nose during surgery but hasn’t finished my nose! It’s still broken and I can’t breathe!”

“It’s all for attention. The wigs, the ‘ugly’ talk,” said our source. “She doesn’t take that seriously, but finds it amusing that everyone will write and talk about it so she keeps doing it.”

One of Bynes’outlandish tweets that we apparently should be taking seriously, however, is her declaration in May that she is “looking forward to a long and wonderful career as a singer/rapper.”

Rapper Waka Flocka Flame recently told E! News she could sign with his hip-hop label Brick Squad Monopoly records – but she needs to complete all her plastic surgery procedures first. He said her first single will likely be called “Shots” and her rap name will be A.B.
Last month she was also offered a rap deal with small East Coast label Chinga Chang Records.
“Amanda is very serious about the rap career,” said our source. “And I think she will surprise people. She’s actually very good.”

Legal reps for Bynes did not respond to a request for comment.

J. Cole's 'Born Sinner' Jumps to No. 1 on Billboard 200 Chart

While J. Cole's "Born Sinner" was initially blocked from No. 1 on the Billboard 200, he celebrates his second No. 1 this week. In its third week on the chart, "Born Sinner" rises 2-1 with 58,000 sold (down 32%, according to Nielsen SoundScan).

The set spent its first two weeks at No. 2—first stuck behind an also-debuting "Yeezus" from Kanye West, and then lodged behind Wale's "The Gifted" a week ago. To date, "Born Sinner" has sold 439,000 copies, this week surpassing the cumulative sum of his original competition, "Yeezus" (431,000).

Albums rarely climb to No. 1, as opposed to debuting in that slot. Since the chart started using more exact Nielsen SoundScan sales data on May 25, 1991, the vast majority of No. 1 albums were chart-toppers because they debuted there. It's unusual for an album to rise to the top, as most titles have their best sales weeks during their debut frame. And many albums cannot sustain momentum after their debut—at least not enough to compete with newer albums.

Since SoundScan started powering the chart, there have been 583 albums that reached No. 1. Of those, only 13% (76 titles) did not debut at No. 1, including J. Cole's "Born Sinner."

With just 58,000 sold at No. 1, this is the sixth-smallest sales week for the top-selling album in the SoundScan era—and the smallest sum at No. 1 in nearly a year. The last time a chart-topper moved fewer copies in a week was on the Aug. 4, 2012, chart, when Zac Brown Band's "Uncaged" sold 48,000 in its second week at No. 1. The all-time smallest sales week at No. 1 occurred on the Feb. 12, 2011, chart, when Amos Lee's "Mission Bell" debuted atop the list with just 40,000 sold.

Khloe Kardashian Kicks Out Lamar Odom After He’s Been Cheating On Her For Months

“I like to think divorce is not an option,” Khloe Kardashian said last year. But soon, it may become her reality because according to a new report in Star magazine, she’s kicked out her husband, Lamar Odom, after his year-long affair with another woman!

Lamar has been cheating on Khloe since at least January 2012, a source tells the mag, when he met gorgeous 29-year-old brunette Jennifer Richardson at the Stadium Club strip club in Washington, D.C., after playing a game for the Dallas Mavericks. RadarOnline.com previously reported about how “strippers were grinding on him,” during that wild night.

Khloe was furious about the report. But now, it appears, much more happened far from the eyes of other patrons.

“Lamar and Jennifer ate dinner in an intimate booth together that night, then he took off her shoes and started rubbing her feet,” a friend of Jennifer’s tells the mag. “The chemistry between them was off the charts!”

Lamar soon left, but the night didn’t end there. Lamar allegedly called Jennifer at 3 am and invited her back to his hotel room.

“As soon as she got there, he took her phone apart and put the pieces in different spots all around the room,” her friend reveals. “He actually took the battery out and the back off. She thought he was afraid that she would take photos or record him.”

With that out of the way, Lamar started “grabbing her butt and kissing her sweetly on the neck,” the friend says. “She said he was an amazing kisser.”

Although the two did not have intercourse, “they did everything else,” says the source,. “It was incredibly intimate.”

Celebs: They're Just Like Us! *Hospitals gowns edition*


Mariah Carey jumped on Instagram earlier this week to show concerned Lambs a picture of her post shoulder surgery. Only the #beautiful diva wasn’t wearing a boring hospital gown and suffering from anesthesia-induced bed hair. Instead, Mimi looked typically resplendent with flowing locks and a stylish ensemble.

And she’s not alone in turning an injury into a fashion-forward photo op. Justin Bieber lost his shirt altogether, while Rihanna showed off her IV (and killer manicure). Oh and let’s not forget Lady Gaga‘s Louis Vuitton wheelchair. See how your favorite pop stars cope with disability above.

New Legend of Korra scans and Cast news from EW


The Legend of Korra has added several familiar names to its cast for Book 2: Aubrey Plaza, Lisa Edelstein and James Remar are among those voicing characters on upcoming episodes of Nickelodeon’s animated action-adventure series, EW has learned.

Plaza (Parks and Recreation) will play Eska, who is one of Korra’s Waterbending cousins, and whose twin brother, Desna, will be voiced by Joan of Arcadia‘s Aaron Himelstein. (Check them out in the image above, which was taken from an upcoming episode.) Remar (Dexter) will assume the role of Tonraq, the powerful Waterbender who is Korra’s father (and is pictured below), while Edelstein (House) will play Kya, Tenzin’s sweet-yet-impatient sister.

In addition, John Michael Higgins (Best in Show) has been cast as Varrick, an eccentric capitalist and self-proclaimed “Biz-Bender,” while Adrian LaTourelle (Sons of Anarchy) will tackle the role of Unalaq, Korra’s uncle and Chief of the Northern and Southern Water Tribes, who seeks assistance from Korra.

Book 2 — a.k.a. the second half of season 1 — picks up six months after Book 1 ended with Korra triumphing over Amon and the Equalists. Now she faces an even greater threat “as the physical and spirit worlds collide.” Consisting of 14 episodes, Book 2 will debut later this year.

The show’s main cast and executive producers will appear at a Comic-Con panel in San Diego on July 19.

Ben Affleck’s Teeth Are the Gold Standard

 photo tumblr_mppwvih8Tk1qb647qo1_500-Copy_zpsc6556344.jpg

It looks like Ben Affleck has joined the bling ring.

The 40-year-old actor flashed a grin while having lunch in L.A.’s Brentwood neighborhood on Tuesday with fellow director David Fincher and debuted two gold-capped teeth.

His glitzy chompers, placed on one of his top molars and one of his lower bicuspids, could be the result of a dental dilemma or could be for an upcoming movie role.

The Oscar winner definitely isn't a stranger to the dentist's office. For his role in "Armageddon" it was rumored that director Michael Bay asked the Boston-bred star to see a cosmetic dentist to have his pearly whites fixed. Whether Affleck followed through on the rumored request or hit the dentist's chair on his own accord, one thing is for sure — he has a much nicer smile than he did upon arriving in Tinsletown. However, we've never seen the gold caps until now.

Next up, Affleck is slated to star in crime drama "Runner Runner" opposite Justin Timberlake and Leonardo DiCaprio, which hits theaters September 27. The Hollywood golden boy (pardon the pun) will play a corrupt poker website owner who lures a young college student, Timberlake, into being his protégé. Since he doesn't display gold teeth in that movie, we can only suspect that the new accessories are either for his next project, "Live By Night," or perhaps he just wanted to look a little like fellow gold teeth lovers, Charlie Sheen, Ke$ha, Rihanna, and Chris Brown.

Whatever the reason for his new toothies, we’re not exactly fans of the new look. But we guess we'll have to just grin and bear it …

Cinemax Thriller ‘Quarry’ adds ‘The Wire’ star Jamie Hector



While Cinemax will bring two series to Comic-Con 2013 with ‘Banshee‘ and ‘Strike Back,’ it’s upcoming pilot drama ‘Quarry‘ that continues to turn our heads. Most recently adding ‘The Avengers‘ star Stellan Skarsgård and ‘Die Hard‘ franchise vet Mary Elizabeth Winstead, the Cinemax drama adaptation has now brought in ‘The Wire‘ vet Jamie Hector in a regular role.

According to TVLine, the former Marlo Stanfield will join the series as Arthur, best friend to the titular lead character played by ‘Prometheus‘ star Logan Marshall-Green.

Written by Graham Gordy and Michael D. Fuller, directed by John Hillcoat, and based on Max Allen Collins’ ’70s-set pulp detective novels, ‘Quarry’ follows the titular Vietnam War veteran after he returns from battle, earning his living as a remorseless hitman taking orders from a man called “The Broker” (Stellan Skarsgård). Meanwhile, Winstead will take the role of Quarry’s wife Joni, one of the few to stand by her husband after he returns from the war.

‘Game of Thrones‘ star Noah Taylor and ‘The Good Wife”s Skipp Sudduth also co-star, while Keith Redmon (‘Awake’), Steve Golin, David Kanter and Matt DeRoss are attached as producers.

Miley Cyrus' Thirsy Moments: From Sideboob To Twitter Pics And Everything In Between

Miley Cyrus isn't afraid to be who she is -- which lately, tends to be an outspoken, racy outfit-wearing wild child.

But despite being only 20 years old, Cyrus has had quite the career and continues to sell millions of records year after year. She also happens to be engaged to "Hunger Games" hunk Liam Hemsworth (yes, that wedding is apparently still happening), travels the world promoting her upcoming album and breaks fashion boundaries with her hot pants and bleached blond pixie cut.

She's also the QUEEN of TMI. From going braless to pantless and dishing out secrets about her personal life, Cyrus "can't stop" sharing too much information.

Exhibit 1: Miley loves leaving her bra at home.

Lamar Odom trashes paparazzi's car



Lamar Odom wasn't happy with some Hollywood paparazzi on Wednesday, so he decided to show it by trashing their car and some camera equipment.

Free-agent big man Lamar Odom trashed the car and camera equipment of paparazzi in Hollywood on Wednesday afternoon before fleeing the scene with some of the destroyed gear.

TMZ caught the incident on video, where Odom was seen going into the backseat of a car and chucking the paparazzi's camera equipment into the middle of the street.

Odom also smashed another paparazzi's car with a metal bar, and then he decided to take all of the equipment in the middle of the street and put it in his trunk.

Hilariously and oddly enough, the video concludes with a female fan approaching Odom and asking for a picture. Odom obliges the woman before going on his way.

It's unclear just what prompted Odom to become so angry with the paparazzi. Perhaps he's just upset that he hasn't signed a new contract yet.

TMZ reports that there has been no police report filed and that they haven't heard anything back from Odom's representatives.
