'Blackfish' Documentary looks at SeaWorld's captive Orcas.


What the Oscar-winning 2009 documentary "The Cove" did for dolphin slaughter in Japan, "Blackfish" may do for killer whales living in captivity while performing at marine parks.

"Blackfish," explores what may have caused Tilikum, a 12,000-pound orca, to kill three people, including veteran SeaWorld trainer Dawn Brancheau in 2010.

Rumoured leads for Star Wars VII

Disney conspicuously kept Star Wars out of this year’s Comic-Con slate only to have it at it’s own annual D23 Expo, which is about three weeks away, August 9-11 in Anaheim.

The studio is working to produce a Star Wars: Episode VII and continue the story of where 1983′s Episode VI: Return of the Jedi left off. Production on the seventh film in the series will start next year in the UK.

Star Wars cast announcements are speculated to be on the horizon at this year’s D23.

About a two months ago my source informed me that they were going to start filming in Pinewood, but I really never paid any mind to it and now it ends up being true that they will indeed film there. I was also told that a MAJOR film star went in for a meeting, that star was Leo DiCaprio. And now I’m told that he’s out.

A little while ago I was told that two names have been thrown around a lot, and that another star went in last week.

The two stars are none other than…

Funniest Celebrity Pseudonyms Of All Time

It hasn’t been the best week in the world for New York City mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner.

Yesterday, news came out that more lewd pictures and texts of Weiner (what a name) sexting some chick hit the Internet.

One of the more interesting and funny details is the alias Antony Weiner was using while dicking around: "Carlos Danger."

(We’re sure there’s a Latin King member out there quite upset by the gringo’s name choice.) [LMFAO]

The second Carlos Danger’s name was released, Twitter-nation went wild with jokes and memes.

Carlos Danger is a funny pseudonym — and it’s just one of many funny pseudonyms celebrities and politicians have used.

Here are some more funny famous ones.

Amanda Bynes' former friend sells her out, reveals details of bizarre behavior

Ana Rivera says she came to know Bynes last November, observed much of her bizarre behavior and was even called ugly repeatedly.

A former New Yorker who claims she befriended troubled former child star Amanda Bynes last November and had a front-row seat to the actress' downward spiral offered more disturbing revelations in an exclusive interview obtained by The News.

Ana Rivera, 22, told media agency Coleman-Rayner that Bynes, 27, talked to herself and watched Marilyn Monroe movies on mute while living between Manhattan hotels and a studio apartment on Wall Street.

"The (Wall Street) place was a mess. She didn't even have a shower curtain in the bathroom, so there was always an inch of water on the floor," Rivera said.

She said Bynes changed all her light bulbs to red, even the lights in her chandelier.

"She said she liked the way it made her look," Rivera recalled.

New Interview With Moffat About 12: The Search Has Barely Begun for "Him"


Doctor Who's Steven Moffat has spoken to Digital Spy about the show's future and the 12th Doctor.

Moffat talks about the search for an actor to replace Matt Smith on the BBC One sci-fi drama, in an interview shot at Comic Con 2013 in San Diego.

The showrunner also reveals whether or not he would consider casting an older Doctor, and which fan favorite characters will be continuing into the 12th Doctor's era.

"You can push [the 12th] Doctor a bit further maybe, if you've got a familiar world around him," he hinted.

The first full series featuring Smith's successor will air on BBC One in 2014, with Moffat giving DS an update on the current status of series eight.

Doctor Who returns to our screens for its 50th anniversary special on Saturday, November 23.

Video at the source (won't embed).

ETA: Key quotes from the interview:

"Once we announced -- slightly earlier than we intended -- that Matt was leaving, every newspaper is all about that and everyone's buzzing about it so you kind of want to sit tight while that's going on and think, 'Yeah, well... we'll get to [casting/announcing the 12th] in a bit.'" *smug chuckle*

"The difference between casting Bond and Who is obviously that, you know, Doctor Who can be anything from 70 to 20. You know, It can be anybody. So you're not merely finding another person to fill that part, you're finding a different version of that part. Something that will absolutely make it different."

"We've never not considered an older Doctor. There is a huge theory that we're trying to appeal to a Twilight demographic or something. It's all nonsense. There was a 30-year age range in the Doctors we saw last time."

"It is completely on all the lists we make. There are absolutely older Doctors."

"[Launching The 11th Hour with a brand-new cast] was a hellish situation. It was ridiculous. You're not meant to do Doctor Who like that. The execs left, the producers left, the stars left. Everybody left. We felt like imposters."

"This time I've made sure we've got a bunch of characters around him so that we can have a new Doctor introduced and we can push that Doctor a bit further, maybe, if you've got a familiar world around him*."

"I'm rather enjoying the white noise of complete nonsense. I'm not sure anything is right [about rumors surrounding the 50th]."

"Even at our most arc-intensive, it's not that arc-intensive. People talk about Series 6 being hugely complex, and you think 'Actually, it's not.' It's really not!" [OP dies laughing]

*To be honest, I'm having a hard time telling if he's saying "him" or "it" on listening more closely. I know, I know -- fuck Moffat. But I find this interview strangely endearing? It's the first time he's seemingly admitted some flaws and some need for change? Still not here for Strax, Jenny and Vastra being part of his "family," though.

Jodie Sweetin's Husband Declares Custody War -- I Want the Kid, Too!

Jodie Sweetin's 2-year-old daughter could become the unfortunate centerpiece in her divorce -- TMZ has learned, Sweetin's estranged husband is gearing up for a full-on custody battle with the former "Full House" star.

We broke the story ... Sweetin filed for legal separation from Morty Coyle last month, citing irreconcilable differences -- but the kicker ... Sweetin requested full custody of their daughter.

But Coyle's not going down without a fight -- he just filed a response to Sweetin's docs, asking the judge to award him joint custody.

He also wants to block the court from awarding Sweetin spousal support.

Coyle and Sweetin had barely been married a year when they split. They were married in March 2012. Sad.

A Lady Doctor Who, And Some Other Hopes and Dreams

It's hard to pinpoint when the rumblings started. It could have been fans – fans calling for a female Doctor, fans (and failure "news" sites) totally against it. It could have been Helen Mirren, stating "I’m not going to be the first female 'Doctor Who.' No, no, no. Absolutely not, I absolutely wouldn’t contemplate that... but I do think it’s well over-time to have a female 'Doctor Who'... I think a gay, black female 'Doctor Who' would be best of all," and solidifying her place as president of my heart. Former Who cast member actor John Barrowman has said much the same: "We've had great guys playing the role. The character of River Song was so popular in the last part of the series and it [had] such an impact -- why shouldn’t we have a female doctor?" When Captain Jack Harkness says something, you'd be hard put to argue. That's even truer when the Doctor himself expresses the same sentiments. Matt Smith, the 11th Doctor, will be leaving the show with this year's Christmas special and will regenerate into...well, Who knows? The role is reported be as yet un-cast. But at San Diego ComicCon this past Sunday, there was much speculation and even a little bit of teasing, including from the mouth of the 11th himself

Enrique Iglesias open to Bynes duet (and Miley)

Enrique Iglesias hopes Miley Cyrus will teach him how to twerk if they collaborate in the future.

The Spanish singer-and-songwriter is currently promoting his forthcoming album and his new single Turn The Night Up.
Enrique wouldn't rule out working with the troubled actress, who has recently revealed her aspirations to make it in the music industry.
He also named Miley Cyrus as another star who has caught his eye.
"Of course I know who Amanda Bynes is. I would collaborate with her, if I like the song, a collaboration is a collaboration," he told New York radio station 92.3 NOW.
"I would like to work with Miley Cyrus. I like her. I met her the other day in the lobby of a hotel. She's really down to earth. We haven't twerked yet! No, I can't do it. It's become the in thing though, yeah?"
Enrique discussed his new track and the inspiration behind the lyrics. He says Turn The Night Up is based on his favourite phrase.
“It's on the way I'm excited I'm nervous you don't know how people are going to act. The craziest part of this is that it's based around a phrase 'Gimme some of that'. I always walk around my house saying, ‘Gimme some of that'. If I’m hungry, I say, ‘Gimme some of that.’ If I’m horny, I say, ‘Gimme some of that.’ So I got to the studio and I kept on saying that phrase and we wrote a song around it," he smiled.
"We never planned for it to be the first single off the album it's a song that's a little out there. It’s one of those crazy songs that you write and you think, ‘This could be either good or bad but if I pull off the vocals I could actually have something.’”


LOL if this is true. Remember when Britney fans were freaking out because they thought him and Britney were gonna have a tour together.

Paula Deen’s Cook Tells of Slights, Steeped in History

SAVANNAH, Ga. — Dora Charles and Paula Deen were soul sisters. That’s what Ms. Deen called the black cook from the start, even before the books and the television shows and the millions of dollars.

For 22 years, Mrs. Charles was the queen of the Deen kitchens. She helped open the Lady & Sons, the restaurant here that made Ms. Deen’s career. She developed recipes, trained other cooks and made sure everything down to the collard greens tasted right.

“If it’s a Southern dish,” Ms. Deen once said, “you better not put it out unless it passes this woman’s tongue.”

The money was not great. Mrs. Charles spent years making less than $10 an hour, even after Ms. Deen became a Food Network star. And there were tough moments. She said Ms. Deen used racial slurs. Once she wanted Mrs. Charles to ring a dinner bell in front of the restaurant, hollering for people to come and get it.

“I said, ‘I’m not ringing no bell,’ ” Mrs. Charles said. “That’s a symbol to me of what we used to do back in the day.”

For a black woman in Savannah with a ninth-grade education, though, it was good steady work. And Ms. Deen, she said, held out the promise that together, they might get rich one day.

"Bennett is new to the prison system like Piper -- who is at the center of the show -- and he has to deal with Dayanara, who he has flirtations with initially and things sort of become complicated," McGorry told me in recent interview. "He has to learn the ropes of the prison system and what's appropriate and what isn't appropriate -- and how to deal with a crush and a love that's pretty forbidden."

Benedict Cumberbatch Marries Two Men In Civil Ceremony In Ibiza

'Sherlock' star Benedict Cumberbatch has shocked fans by marrying two men in a ceremony.

But the actor hasn't entered into a legalised three way marriage (that would be silly, and besides, he's very heterosexual) - he was overseeing the civil ceremony of two male friends in Ibiza at the weekend.

The 'Star Trek Into Darkness' star agreed to officiate at the gay wedding on the White Isle on Saturday. He told The Sun: “It’s a very private, lovely thing to be asked to do.

“Of course I’m going to make a joke after it if it goes well — ‘I do weddings. Next will be children’s parties and bat mitzvahs’. “It’s a mainly Jewish and gay audience so hopefully they will be lenient towards me.”

Also at the ceremony between the two unknown men was writer Julie Burchill, who said: “The hotel was lush, the bridegrooms were beautiful, and the man who married them (to each other) was Benedict Cumberbatch — so yes, it was quite a blast.”

Meanwhile, Benedict is set to feature heavily at the 38th Toronto International Film Festival with no less than three of his films featuring at the event 'The Fifth Estate', which sees him playing Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, will open the event on September 5.

He will also feature in '12 Years a Slave' and 'August: Osage County', which he stars in alongside Meryl Streep and Julia Roberts.

Weiner admitted yesterday he sexted long after he resigned from Congress in 2011, but finally nipped his sexting problem in the bud last summer ... around when Leathers sent the thong photo.

Leathers says ... Weiner was very persistent in his naughty picture requests, asking her to send all sorts of naked photos ... more than 30 in total. But we're told Weiner also has a foot fetish, and regularly asked for pics of Leathers' feet in heels. Of course, this was all allegedly in exchange for pictures of his own naked ... weiner.

Actress Indira Varma has been cast in season four. Varma will play Ellaria Sand on the show, the sexually adventurous paramour of a key new character, Prince Oberyn Martell “The Red Viper” (played by Pedro Pascal).

Since playing Niobe on HBO’s Rome, Varma has had roles on Fox’s Human Target along with UK dramas Silk and Hunted. Last year, the production added fellow Rome actor Ciarán Hinds.

Varma joins fellow season 4 new hires Pascal and Sherlock writer-actor Mark Gatiss. Last week at Comic-Con, Thrones producers and cast told EW they expect season 4 will be the show’s best season yet. “We got more action, which is obviously more time consuming,” says showrunner David Benioff. “It’s a brutal shooting season ahead. But if we can make it through, yeah, I think it’s going to surpass season three. The last 3 episodes, there’s so many scenes we’ve been waiting for so long to do. And it just gets more and more fun to write for these characters. After three years of doing it, we have that much more comfort to make everything uncomfortable for them. We’re very excited for it.”


this makes me curious about what direction the other dornish casting will go, since so many people like lindaaaaaaaaaa were adamant that "dornishmen are not indian!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"

Third and Final New "GRAVITY" Clip Shows Bullock & Clooney Plummeting Towards Earth

[Sandra] Bullock plays Dr. Ryan Stone, a brilliant medical engineer on her first shuttle mission, with veteran astronaut Matt Kowalsky [George Clooney] in command of his last flight before retiring. But on a seemingly routine spacewalk, disaster strikes. The shuttle is destroyed, leaving Stone and Kowalsky completely alone – tethered to nothing but each other and spiraling out into the blackness. The deafening silence tells them they have lost any link to Earth…and any chance for rescue. As fear turns to panic, every gulp of air eats away at what little oxygen is left. But the only way home may be to go further out into the terrifying expanse of space.

Scheffer wrote retailers saying his company accepts Deen's apologies for her previous comments. He says part of the decision is based on retail customer feedback.

It had to be George

What's in a name? asks Shakespeare's Juliet. The answer is, a lot: tradition, emulation, family expectation. Our present Queen Elizabeth II (named without a thought that she would ever reign) has benefited hugely from having the same name as the most glorious and personally resourceful of all our monarchs. When her son succeeds her, he will have to dodge comparisons with the previous two kings named Charles: one, pig-headed and divisive; the other, amoral and self-gratifying.

So it had to be George. The bookies who made this name the favourite actually seem to have thought little about unfortunate royal role models in calculating the odds on other names. Collapse )

Andrew Dice Clay on Woody Allen, Regrets… and Gay Marriage


When the cast list was first revealed for Woody Allen’s new movie Blue Jasmine, one name prompted a fair amount of head-scratching. Cate Blanchett makes sense; he has a long history of writing great roles for terrific actresses. Sally Hawkins and Alec Baldwin had both worked with Allen before. Allen loves to cast stand-ups with similar comic sensibilities, so Louis C.K. was a grand slam. But Andrew Dice Clay? The controversial ‘90s icon and bad boy comedian was doing a Woody Allen movie?

But the more you think about it, the more sense it makes. Like Woody, Dice is a Brooklyn guy who got big by developing a distinctive and immediately recognizable comic persona — a persona that quickly became, for the public at large, indistinguishable from his real personality. After that initial flush of fame and controversy, Dice went through some lean years, but he’s back in the public eye after a run on Entourage, to say nothing of his performance in Blue Jasmine, which is indisputably great — the kind of finely tuned character work that you could easily see him doing more of in the coming years. We talked about his relationship with Woody, his acting style, and his past during the recent Blue Jasmine press day.

Tom Hiddleston Walks Around With Thor & Loki Action Figures In His Pocket

Wanna see Tom Hiddleston having too much of a good time playing with himself?

Of course, when we say “playing with himself,” we don't mean playing with himself in that way. Rather, the lovable British thespian produced three action figures—one of himself as Loki, one of Thor (Chris Hemsworth) and one that looks to be the film’s big bad villain Malekith (Christopher Eccleston)—for the Yahoo! interviewer while at San Diego Comic-Con.

Pulling the action figures (courtesy of Hasbro, by the way) literally out of his pants, Hiddleston then proceeds to "re-enact" a few key scenes—complete with grunts and threats—from the upcoming Marvel flick Thor: The Dark World, to hilarious effect.

Have a look below:

Bella Heathcote And Emma Watson In Running For 'Secret Service' Female Lead

Well, it looks like "The Secret Service," the next Matthew Vaughn-directed adaptation of a Mark Millar comic book, is almost fully staffed with secret agents. According to a Variety report, newcomer Taron Egerton has landed the lead role of a young street tough who is turned into a super spy, in a story Millar has described as "My Fair Lady" meets James Bond. Meanwhile, the hunt for a female lead is still on, with Bella Heathcote and Emma Watson looking like the current frontrunners.


"The Secret Service" originated as a comic book by Mark Millar, whose comic book creations also inspired "Wanted" and "Kick-Ass" (he also serves in some kind of creative capacity on the Marvel movies Fox has in development) and Dave Gibbons, the artist who worked with Alan Moore on the beloved "Watchmen" series. It tells the story of a kid who is taken under the wing of his super spy uncle, who teaches him how to be the best spy he can be. It's pretty warm-hearted, given Millar's usual nihilistic streak, and should make for a fun deconstruction of the genre.

Dissed. Lana Del Rey lashes out at Lady Gaga on leaked track

A previously unheard song by Lana Del Rey features lyrics that appear to lash out against Lady Gaga, telling her former friend: "Stefani, you suck."

Leaked online on Tuesday, the song So Legit has already disappeared from YouTube. But copies are still floating around on a handful of blogs, letting fans celebrate or rage against Del Rey's anti-Gaga gall. The ghostly acoustic track seems more like a demo than something made in a studio – and it is not clear when the song dates from – but the singer's deliberate vocals make it clear this wasn't improv.

"You were the freak king of the piercing shop," Del Rey sings. "You're looking like a man, you're talking like a baby/ How the fuck is your song in a Coke commercial, crazy?/ I don't get it, your taste once exquisite."

She goes on:

"I don't get it, I'm so legit.
Tell me, was it cuz I wasn't platinum in jewels?
That perhaps you thought I was a little bit even uncool?
Kid, was that it?
Stefani, you suck
I know you're selling 20 million,
Wish they could have seen you when we booed you off in Williamsburg."

17 Celebs Who Smoke(d) Pot

Even if you haven't seen Up in Smoke, you're probably familiar with the cultural cornerstone that is the pot-fueled comedy duo, Cheech & Chong. Cheech Marin, who also voiced a hyena in The Lion King (for all us '90s kids!), turns 67 today! Because pot is totally for all ages — even your grandparents! — we thought we'd take this moment to reflect on celebs who have embraced the herb.

Thanks to the 2012 election, Colorado and Washington became the first states to legalize the recreational use of marijuana. That's right, folks: In those states, if you're over 21 you can buy pot for fun.

However, plenty of people indulged long before legalization was even on the table, celebrities included. While most stars keep mum about any theoretical drug use, these 17 famous figures are a bit more open about their pot-related experiences. Some of them might surprise you!

Kanye West will NOT be prosecuted for angry airport attack on photographer

Kanye West will not be prosecuted following his airport altercation with a photographer, it has been revealed.
The 36-year-old singer charged a paparazzo who was peppering him with questions upon the singer's arrival at Los Angeles International Airport last Friday.

The photographer was taken to a hospital following the assault. He claimed West attempted to steal his camera and told authorities that he wanted to press charges.

However investigators from LA Police's Robbery-Homicide Division told TMZ that it was 'extremely unlikely' West would be prosecuted as there was no proof he attempted to take the camera.

In the next few days police officers will refer the case to the Los Angeles County District Attorney's Office as a felony attempted robbery charge rather than the lesser charge of battery.

If, as expected, the charge is dropped then the file will be passed to the L.A. City Attorney for a possible misdemeanor criminal battery prosecution.

David Cross and Amber Tamblyn have a question for you

Can you imagine if this actually happened to you? If you're one of millions of American women, it has. It is happening not in an exam room, but in a room with marbled floors, expensive pens and numerous symbols of "freedom," populated by men and women in crisp suits whose ideas about "life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness" are rooted in illogical double-standards and hypocrisies that boggle the mind. These people are making decisions about you, for you, but not by you. They are passing wildly unpopular laws everyday that dictate the choices you can or cannot make, the health care you may or may not be afforded, the rights you can or cannot enjoy in regards to your very own body. Tell Gynoticians like Rick Perry, Trent Franks, Pat McCrory and the Pat McCrorys of women like representative Jodie Laubenberg and Marsha Blackburn that enough is enough: We aren't just coming for their laws, we're coming for their JOBS.

'Once Upon a Time' casts Tinkerbell

Here’s a happy thought: Once Upon a Time has just cast Tinkerbell for season 3.

Actress Rose McIver has landed the ABC hit’s take on classic role, and will appear in multiple episodes next season.

Season 3 will spend time exploring the fantasy world of Neverland. Showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have said Tinkerbell will have a surprising introduction and unlikely connection to another character. As for the mysterious role of Peter Pan, the showrunners promised fans at Comic-Con that he will be a darker and complicated version of the character — and perhaps a little frightening.

McIver has had roles in The Lovely Bones and Showtime’s upcoming Masters of Sex, and was the Yellow Bear ranger on Power Rangers RPM. For next season, Once Upon has also recast Robin Hood (with Sean Maguire filling in for Tom Ellis), booked Robbie Kay as a Lost Boy, and Giancarlo Esposito will return for an episode as The Mirror/Sidney.

One big role that has yet to be cast: Ariel, The Little Mermaid herself. Once Upon returns Sunday, Sept. 29.

Lea Michele and Costars Pay Tribute at Cory Monteith's Memorial

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

For many, it was a decidedly un-gleeful morning in LA.

Less than two weeks after the shocking death of Cory Monteith, friends and costars of the actor, including his girlfriend Lea Michele, reunited for a memorial on the Paramount studio lot, where Glee's auditorium scenes are filmed.

Michele joined producer Ryan Murphy and costars including Kevin McHale and Darren Criss at the indoor/outdoor event where guests mingled, dined on buffet food and listened to Glee-appropriate tunes like "Good Vibrations" in Monteith's honor.

Each of the over 150 attendees (including Chord Overstreet, who was seen carrying a guitar) sported black ribbons as a tribute to the late actor.

"They were somber," says an eyewitness of the mourners, who were seen leaving the memorial with puffy, red eyes. "There were a lot of production staff and crew too and most everyone was dressed in black."

In a statement, Fox said: "Today, Ryan Murphy and Lea Michele gathered the cast, crew and producers of Glee, along with colleagues from the network and studio, to share memories and music in an emotional celebration of the life of Cory Monteith. We thank the public for their continued outpouring of love and support as we grieve our friend and colleague during this difficult time."

Meanwhile, the entire Glee cast (Michele included) will resume production in early August. The series will honor Monteith's character, Finn Hudson, in a special tribute episode this fall.

Jade Thirlwall and Leigh Anne Pinnock chat with Vibe Vixen

Leigh Anne
VIBE Vixen: What was your initial reaction to joining a girl group?
Leigh Anne: At first, it was a little bit scary because I thought being a girl group meant not doing the music that I wanted to do, but then I got to know the girls and we were all on the same page. We knew exactly what we wanted to do. I think anyone would be worried. You get put in a group with people you’ve never known before.

What is the biggest misconception people have about Little Mix?
I’ll probably say the only thing is that people think we get on the stage and lip sync our songs which we don’t. We write our music, we produce it and we always sing live.

What sets you a part from other groups?We kind of take inspiration from all the girl groups. We’ve got a rapper. We’ve got a beatboxer. There’s four of us and we’re all equal. But we’re all quite individual as well. We’ve got different styles. We sing. We dance. We act. We do everything we possibly can (laughs).

Nicholas Hoult, Gemma Arterton and Stephen Fry are set to voice Once Upon a Time in the Kitchen


Nicholas Hoult, Gemma Arterton and Stephen Fry are set to voice new family-animation Once Upon a Time in the Kitchen. Alexander Williams, an animator on The Lion King and Pocahontas will direct from a script by Chris Brown, one of the original writers of US sitcom Friends. Production is due to get underway this September on the story of a feud between the everyday utensils and the best silver, cutlery from opposite sides of the table. The feature will be sold by UK sales and distribution outfit Kaleidoscope (KFD), which retains UK distribution rights. Williams said: “Once Upon a Time in the Kitchen is a fantasy adventure aimed squarely at a family audience, but with enough sophisticated wit to keep the grown-ups happy. To me the best animated films invite the audience in to a world that they have never seen before – and could not possibly see outside of the medium of animation. We want to bring a familiar world to life in a completely unfamiliar way – what really happens in the kitchen after dark, when the humans leave?”


Gemma's voice is like honey, she's so perfect.

At a fourth of July barbecue, New York Times reporter, William J. Broad marveled at his hosts’ ability to keep mosquitoes at bay with an unlikely weapon--an electric fan.

Curious as to how his hosts had come up with the idea, in a story for the New York Times, the reporter traces the dissemination of the information all the way back to its originator, a Philadelphia businessman, who told him, “The solution came from trying to think like a bug, and realizing ‘I don’t like flying into a 15 mph wind.’” Since mosquitoes are weak flyers that clock in at a pokey 1 to 1.5 mph, the blow-‘em-away theory works.

Fight Club:
How Enemies Power Innovation

This think-like-a-bug philosophy reminded us of the adage, “Know your enemy.” We’ve all heard the maxim, “Know your customer,” but that will only get you so far if part of your mission is to dominate or defeat a condition, say, Barbecue Host vs. Mosquitos or Big Pharma vs. the Big C. Or if your mission, in large part, involves dominating or defeating a rival as in Coke vs. Pepsi or Instagram vs. Vine. Sometimes for you to win your rival has to lose. So in a world of fierce competition, why do recent studies suggest that business managers who think-like-their-enemies are in the minority?

There are a few obvious ways to gather intel on those you are trying to best: Become a customer by buying your competitor’s products, talk to their customers about their likes and dislikes, check out their social media sites, set up Google alerts, even buy some stock from your rival so you can get financial information. But here are some more creative tips you can take from successful people who understand that a large measure of success depends on beating out the competition.

Bizarre Twist: Britney Spears’ Controversial Former Manager Sam Lutfi Befriended Amanda Bynes

Britney Spears former controversial manager, Sam Lutfi, bought Amanda Bynes a plane ticket for the troubled starlet to return to Los Angeles from New York City, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

In a bizarre turn that is eerily similar to events leading up to Britney Spears being placed under a conservatorship, Lutfi and Bynes recently became friends, a source close to the situation tells RadarOnline.com exclusively.

“Sam bought Amanda the plane ticket for her to return to Los Angeles from New York City. She had no money,” a source revealed. “The two became friends in recent months.

“It’s very concerning to say the very least, given Sam’s history with Britney Spears leading up to her father, Jamie Spears, getting a conservatorship over his daughter, and getting a restraining order preventing Lutfi from having any contact with her.”

Lutfi denied to RadarOnline that he bought Bynes’ plane ticket. But when asked about his friendship with Amanda, he said, “I have to call you back” and hung up abruptly.

Lutfi filed a breach of contract lawsuit against the pop star and accused her father, Jamie of assault. The lawsuit was dismissed last year there will during the trial.

Over the years, Lutfi has tried to get close to Lindsay Lohan, Courtney Love and even Michael Jackson’s teenage daughter, Paris. Currently, Lutfi is managing Courtney Love.

Lutfi has had a slew of restraining orders obtained against him over the years, ranging from Britney to a former roommate.

According to a source who has dealt with Lutfi: “Amanda should be kept very, very far away from him. She is emotionally extremely vulnerable and needs mental health help.

“He can come across as extremely charming and caring, but he is also very, very manipulative, and would want total control of Amanda’s life. This is the last thing she needs in her life right now.”

Bynes has spoken to Lutfi on the phone since she was placed on a 5150 psychiatric hold.


Oh no. I hope this isn't true.

Elsa Pataky (Chris Hemsworth's wife) trying to be Miley Cyrus

Did Elsa Pataky copy Miley Cyrus’ haircut because she’s ‘jealous’ of Miley’s fame?

We really have to hand it to Miley — she may have completely warped her image into something that seems wholly unnatural for a girl with a voice tailor-made for country music, but with one mere cringeworthy music video, Miley has catapulted herself into pop music superstardom. Bless Larry Rudolph’s heart.

So Miley has the fame now — it was really that easy. She went from being a post-Disney starlet who spent her time attending pilates classes every day and posting photos of her dogs to a bona fide pop star. Now all she has to do is maintain this level of ubiquity, which shouldn’t be too difficult. And I can’t believe the tabloids didn’t come up with this story sooner because it’s just so damn funny. According to this week’s issue of the Enquirer, Elsa Pataky is fuming over future sister-in-law Miley’s fame and wants a piece of that. The premise isn’t too hard to believe, right? Well, Miley credits her drastic haircut last summer with changing her life, and now the Enquirer says that Elsa essentially copied Miley’s hair. I had to go back and check the timeline on these haircuts, and Elsa got hers in December! And unlike Miley’s cut, nobody paid a bit of attention to the crop during Elsa’s pap walks.

Now I had previously assumed that Elsa had acquired a post-baby haircut because she may have experienced that dreaded massive hair loss that often arrives with postpartum hormones. But I think the Enquirer’s version is a lot more amusing as it paints the tale of Elsa seeing Miley as “a bitter rival,” but finding herself unable to become “a Miley mimic.” Mind you, this is all based upon what could be a coincidental set of haircuts, but with Elsa’s fameseeking history, well, it makes a lot more sense than Elsa will be comfortable admitting to when she picks up the tabloids this week.

I have forever thought this and how creepy it is, but no one has really reported on it. Saw this article today and had to share. Elsa is sf creepy.

Shailene Woodley Doesn't Wear Makeup To Events

Want proof that Shailene Woodley is a beacon of hope in young Hollywood? Look no further.

In a July 24th interview with Flavorwire, the Golden Globe-nominated actress spoke out about how the photoshopped images of celebrities we see in magazines are far from realistic, and why she has a problem contributing to a beauty standard that makes most women feel bad about themselves. She admitted:

I saw somebody -- what I thought was me -- in a magazine once, and I had big red lips that definitely did not belong on my face. I had boobs about three times the size they are in real life. My stomach was completely flat. My skin was also flawless. But the reality is that I do not have those lips and my skin is not flawless and I do have a little bit of a stomach. It was not a proper representation of who I am. I realized that, growing up and looking at magazines, I was comparing myself to images like that -- and most of it isn’t real.

But, despite opposing retouched images, Woodley is ultimately an actress who must promote her work. So how does she reconcile her beliefs with the necessary evils of her job? By refusing to wear makeup. Woodley told Flavorwire reporter Michelle Dean:

So (a) I don’t really wear makeup that much anyway, so part of it is just a selfish, lazy thing, and (b) I want to be me. I do think it’s fun sometimes to dress up for the Oscars or for certain events -- I get to be like a five-year-old again, wearing my Cinderella dress. But for some events where it’s a more casual vibe, I just want to be me.

Considering that women are negatively influenced by altered magazine images (especially young women -- research shows that 47 percent of girls in 5th through 12th grade reported wanting to lose weight based on images they had seen in magazines), it's inspiring to see a rising star like Woodley push back against those impossible beauty standards. We only hope more actresses take note and follow her lead.

Game of Thrones’ Writers Take On ‘It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia + More 'It's Always Sunny' News

PHILADELPHIA — No matter what the title of the show promises, the skies over this location shoot for “It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia” had offered only thunderstorms broken up by occasional periods of mugginess. Maybe that was typical weather for this recent summer morning, or maybe it was the influence of the authors of the scene about to be filmed, who were thousands of miles away, busy with their regularly foreboding duties.
David Benioff, a creator of “Game of Thrones,” said he welcomed the challenge of writing an episode of “Always Sunny.”

The 10 Most Exciting Young Female Directors in the World Today


The prejudices faced by women filmmakers - half of all film school graduates but only 5% of working Hollywood directors - have been well-documented. Those who do make it talk often of the depressing struggle they faced to get there, far longer on average than their male counterparts. It is equally common to hear of a female director whose difficulties in getting financed or produced stemmed from the personal subject matter of their work.

It would seem that both of these realities are informed by the depressing strain of misogyny which judges the perspective of a young woman to be somehow lesser. Greta Gerwig showed awareness of this when she said “| think that people get really angry when it's women doing it, to be totally honest. There's something that feels threatening about it and they have to be doing something other than being thoughtful. It has to be somehow an exercise in narcissism, because why else would you make anything about women?”.

Yet plenty of young female voices have succeeded in breaking through these absurd walls of prejudice, and not with any hint of compromise. Here is a list of ten female directors aged 40 or younger, whose achievements make for refreshing reading, both for content of their work and the way they have established their careers. It is a subjective list, and no disservice to any of the women not included, especially those who simply happen to exceed my arbitrary age limit. My focus on youth need signify no more than an inspiring look to the future, and the many decades of filmmaking we can expect from each of the following.

Celine Sciamma
Age: 32
Nationality: French
Claim to fame: subverting gender expectations
Her story: The press treatment of Angelina Jolie’s daughter Shiloh makes clear that media coverage of childhood gender nonconformity is not exactly enlightened. And whilst we can only dream of Celine Sciamma's "Tomboy" reaching the kind of audience exposed to that level of tabloid dross, it remains a startling film about a ten year old girl who moves to a new town and announces to her new friends that she is a boy. Before this, Sciamma’s debut “Water Lilies” screened at Cannes at the age of 25. With a striking minimalist style both indebted to French tradition and uniquely hers, Sciamma has won over the critical fraternity without compromising her focus on young female sexuality.

Amanda Byne's Parents File For Conservatorship

Amanda Bynes’ parents have just filed court documents asking a California judge to impose a conservatorship on their daughter due to her apparent mental illness, TMZ has learned.

The conservatorship would empower Amanda's parents to have decision-making authority over certain aspects of Amanda's life ... though it's unclear, at this point, what specific aspects Amanda's parents are looking to control.

Amanda is currently being held by authorities on a 5150 psychiatric hold ... which was put into place earlier this week after she lit a fire on the driveway of a random elderly woman in Thousand Oaks, Ca.

TMZ broke the story ... doctors at the psychiatric hospital say Amanda is showing signs of schizophrenia.

TMZ has learned the documents outline Amanda's bizarre behavior and highlight the troubling string of incidents -- including the driveway fire -- leading up to the 5150.

There will be a court hearing Friday.

It's worth noting ... it's VERY difficult to get a conservatorship in California
