Leslie Knope will be getting a new BFF

The departure of Rashida Jones‘ Ann midway through Parks and Recreation‘s upcoming sixth season is going to leave a huge vacancy in her BFF Leslie Knope’s (Amy Poehler) social circle — so huge it will take more than one person to fill it.

According to executive producer Mike Schur, the NBC comedy will “position different people to fill in parts of her emotional world. It won’t be just one person.”

To wit, “There’s something that April does in the [London-set, Sept. 26] premiere that’s sort of a harbinger of things to come,” Schur reveals. “And we’re bringing Retta a lot more to the forefront this season. Donna and Leslie will have some good connections and some good screen time together.”

By the time Jones exits in February, Schur notes that Leslie and Ann will have spent “103 episodes interacting and becoming friends. We’re not just going to suddenly pretend that a new actor can come in and be, like, Leslie’s new best friend. It’s going to be people she already knows and relies on and cares about.”

And by all accounts she’s going to really need a strong support system after Ann leaves town (with Rob Lowe’s Chris in tow). Previews Schur: “The biggest personal story that Leslie goes through this season is dealing with her friend leaving.”


25 foods worth traveling for

Even if we don't always remember the history behind the Colosseum, the significance of the Great Pyramids' configuration, or who built Machu Picchu after returning home from a trip, we can almost always remember what we ate while we were there.
[More Text WHO CARES LETS GET TO THE FOOD]Of course, food memories can range from pleasurable to mediocre to, even, uncomfortable. Judgments aside, most of us travelers can agree that the times when we eat during a trip are most often also the times when we feel the most engaged. With all five senses stimulated, we not only see, hear, smell, or even touch a certain place — we taste it, too.

Globalization has made sampling delicacies from around the world fairly easy. Most of us don't have to live in the Middle East to sample delicious falafel, or travel to China for near perfect jiaozi. But our list isn't solely about individual dishes; it's about the experience of eating in an authentic context. It's about actually stepping foot in the wood-fired pizzerias in Naples, the steaming noodle shops of Tokyo, and the bustling cevicherias of Lima. You may be able to recreate a crêpe, but you (sadly) will have a difficult time recreating the crepêrie that wafts saccharine batter aromas from a Parisian street corner.

None of these dishes could have been created in a vacuum. They are most often the sum of geography, traditions, necessities, and personal tastes of a given culture. Many of the dishes on our list arguably have multiple homes across several borders, yet we've chosen to bring you the locations where we believe you can find them in some of their purest forms.

In this slideshow, we've rounded up 25 different foods that enhance the experience of a given place. Not only do these foods complement a trip, some might argue (as we do) that given the proper address, they're worth the trip themselves.

Poland: Pierogies

A pierogi is perhaps the most famous Polish dish. It can come in a variety of forms — baked or fried, filled with meat or potatoes — and is the quintessential Polish comfort food. While it was initially thought of as peasant food, pierogies are now one of the most popular dishes in Poland. If you're visiting Krakow, visit Zapiecek Polskie Pierogarnie to taste this iconic dish.

Hans Zimmer's 10 Best Movie Soundtracks

Hans Zimmer's roaring orchestral scores have provided the soundtrack to countless Hollywood hits over the past 25 years, and the German-born composer returns to our eardrums this week with the release of The Lone Ranger.

His take on the classic William Tell Overture is perhaps the best thing in the movie and worth the price of admission alone (did you know he also redid themes from Thunderbirds and The Simpsons?)

Digital Spy celebrates the ubiquitous Zimmer's honking great film scores with 10 of his best below...

Elton John and Tim Rice provided songs and lyrics for Disney's sweeping epic, but it was Zimmer's music that helped stir the emotions for Simba's journey to the head of the pride.

Shop assistant in Zurich refused to show Oprah a handbag because it was "too expensive" for her

Oprah's Encounter With Racism Results In Apology From Swiss Tourism Office

GENEVA -- Talk show host Oprah Winfrey says she encountered racism while shopping in Switzerland – and the national tourism office agrees.

The media mogul, who is one of the world's richest women, told the U.S. program "Entertainment Tonight" that a shop assistant in Zurich refused to show her a handbag because it was "too expensive" for her.

Forbes magazine estimates that Winfrey earned $77 million in the year ending in June.

A spokeswoman for the Swiss tourism office, Daniela Baer, told The Associated Press on Friday "we are very sorry for what happened to her."

The tourism office also posted an apology on Twitter, saying "this person acted terribly wrong."

Winfrey was in town to attend last month's wedding of longtime pal Tina Turner, who lives in Switzerland.

Jesse Eisenberg on his 'boring' life and therapy

Jesse Eisenberg’s life is “very boring” and the most excitement he gets comes from riding his bicycle.

The actor rose to prominence in 2010’s The Social Network, in which he played Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg. He also stars in recent hit Now You See Me, where he plays a magician-come-conman, but while his characters might have a thrilling existence, the same can’t be said of Jesse.

I lead a very boring life. The only exciting thing I do is ride my bike, terrified, between the buses on the roads,” he deadpanned to German TV channel TELE 5.The 29-year-old has been branded rude and socially awkward in the past, due to some uncomfortable press interviews.

He has been very open about his visits to see a counselor, which help him through everyday life.

I’m not ready for the loony bin, but therapy helps me, because my job is very emotional. I manipulate my feelings for money and it often leaves me confused,” he admitted.

Jesse’s career is going from strength to strength since appearing in The Social Network. While things may have worked out, he had no set idea about how to get started in Hollywood.

“It’s totally impossible to plan your career. The actor only gets introduced once the script is written and the set’s been built. It’s impossible to guess what will become of it,” he said.

Lyrics to Coldplay’s ‘Catching Fire’ Soundtrack Song ‘Atlas’

After we learned this morning that Coldplay would be featured on the Catching Fire Soundtrack and release their original song “Atlas” on August 26th, Coldplay tweeted the lyrics to the song. Check them out below

Some saw the sun
Some saw the smoke
Some heard the gun
Some bent the bow
Sometimes the wire must tense for the note
Caught in the fire, say oh
We’re about to explode
Carry your world, I’ll carry your world
Some far away
Some search for gold
Some dragon to slay
Heaven we hope is just up the road
Show me the way, Lord because I
I’m about to explode
Carry your world
I’ll carry your world
Carry your world and all your hurt

We think we’re in love with this song without even hearing it yet!

Victoria Beckham Giggles As Son Romeo Morphs Into Karl Lagerfeld

Victoria Beckham was tickled when her son Romeo morphed into legendary fashion designer Karl Lagerfeld in a hilarious new mocked-up image shared by the former Spice Girl on Twitter.

Posting the slightly creepy snap on her account, mum-of-four Victoria wrote: "I can't stop laughing right now, genius! x". In the drawing, 12-year-old Romeo's cute little face is seen peeking out from underneath Karl's signature white ponytail and dark shades while his tiny photoshopped head perches atop the eccentric Chanel designer's familiar monochromed shoulders.

It's not known who created the bizarre image, but the caption underneath which reads "Romeo Who?" presumably refers to Lagerfeld's favourite "Karl Who?" tote bag. Could we be seeing a series of Romeo Lagerfeld shoppers swinging from VB and her pals' shoulders on their next spending spree? We certainly hope so...

We're sure the 79-year-old German fashion legend won't mind being associated with mini model-in-the-making Romeo, either. Karl once described Victoria and David's middle son as "handsome, cute and polite" after Romeo made a name for himself in the fashionsphere as the face of Burberry last year.

Now that he's bonded with the big dog, we predict that Romeo will be rocking the Chanel catwalk next...

Ceelo Green: "Usher don't do, what I do..To be honest, I don't know how hot it was, in comparison"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Cee Lo Green is feeling "no pressure" coming back to his "Voice" swivel chair for season five.

"To be honest, I don't know how hot it was, in comparison," Green said. "I really do believe that in like all honesty that the original chemistry and cast is incomparable and irreplaceable," referring to the original foursome that includes Christina Aguilera, Adam Levine and Blake Shelton.

While Usher was touted for his charm and unorthodox coaching techniques, including making his team sing while boxing to build stamina, Green says, "I don't really feel no pressure because I'm bringing my own brand of personality and entertainment and, you know what I'm saying like, eccentricity and all of that kind of, all that good stuff back into the mix of it."

The "Forget You" singer became known on the show for selecting out-of-the-box artists to join his team, his affinity for pretty girls, and his unique pets including Purrfect the cat and his pink parrot, both of whom he stroked during confessionals.

According to Green, there is no competition between him and the R&B crooner, "Usher don't do what I do ... from my recollection there's an awful lot of variety of people who miss what I brought to the show but if I'd had shared that seat with anybody it would've been Usher ... That's our baby brother."

With the success of all six coaches, "The Voice" producers have decided to swap coaches season-to-season. While Levine and Shelton remain permanent fixtures, Green and Xtina will coach during season five and Usher, Shakira will return for season six, a plan Green calls "pretty doable."

Season five of "The Voice" is set to premiere September 23.

Amanda Bynes has just been placed on an extended, 30-day psychiatric hold ... and the people responsible for making that happen were not her parents -- they were her doctors ... TMZ has learned.

Sources tell us ... doctors at the psychiatric hospital where Amanda has been held for the last 2 week determined she was not well enough to leave the hospital to attend today's hearing -- where her parents are trying to win a temporary conservatorship.

We're told doctors went to a judge who traveled to the hospital to conduct an emergency hearing. The judge granted the doctors' request, and extended Amanda's psych hold for 30 days.

According to the law, doctors can only get such an order if the patient is "gravely disabled as a result of a mental disorder."

Amanda's parents will still pursue the temporary conservatorship, we've learned, because it will stay in effect until Sept. 30th. And the conservatorship would allow her parents to control Amanda's finances.

M.I.A. Threatens to Leekx 'Matangi' Amid Label Drama

Maya Arulpragasm says she could finish another new album "by the time they are ready"

August 9 2013, 11:03 AM ET

In a week of possible publicity stunts with big money on the line, M.I.A. is adding her unsilenceable voice. The MAYA rapper-singer hinted on Twitter that she might "leak" her own upcoming album, Matangi, over what she strongly implied were delays caused by her label, Interscope.

"who would stop MATANGI from coming out?" she wrote. And then: "If interscope takes longer i can always leak this next week and make a new one by the time they are ready."

True, M.I.A. has been teasing the follow-up to MAYA and her 2010-ending Vicki Leekx mixtape since last April at the latest. And though her online presence continues to provoke controversy — the director of a planned M.I.A. documentary publicly quit last month — her live show and recent tracks "Bring the Noize" and "Only 1 U" are as on point as ever.

But Interscope is no mom-and-pop. It's ultimately owned by giant French conglomerate Vivendi. And at a time of rampant skepticism about Daft Punk's The Colbert Report non-appearance, plus major-label exiles Death Grips' Lollapalooza non-appearance, skepticism is — well, did we already say "rampant"? We'll have to wait and see whether a big-time artist, even a revolutionary one, can really leak an album without permission these days.


Happy 50th birthday, Whitney Houston

Whitney Houston would have turned 50 on Friday (Aug. 9). If Houston had lived to see this day, she would have much of which to be proud. You could make a strong argument that Houston set the template for the modern pop/R&B diva. She paved the way for Mariah Carey, Beyonce, Alicia Keys, Jennifer Hudson and many others.

Here are just a few of the records she set:

•  In June 1987, Whitney became the first album by a female artist to enter The Billboard 200 album chart at #1.
•  In April 1988, Houston became the first artist (male, female or group) to reach #1 on the Hot 100 with seven consecutive chart hits. (The old record of six was held jointly by the Beatles and Bee Gees.)
•  In February 1993, “I Will Always Love You” became the first single in the “rock era” (which dates to 1955) to log 14 weeks at #1.

Matt Damon Doesn't Rescue Stephen Colbert From Overturned Soda Machine, Talks 'Elysium' Instead

M.I.A.'s Album Matangi Gets a Release Date

By Evan Minsker and Amy Phillips on August 9, 2013 at 10:30 a.m.

Video portrait by Erik Sanchez

Following this morning's threat of a leak, M.I.A.'s long-delayed new album Matangi has a new release date. The follow-up to 2010's /\/\/\Y/\ is due November 5 via Interscope.

News about Matangi has been trickling out for over a year. She's shared a handful of new songs: the single "Bring the Noize", "Only 1 U", "Come Walk With Me", "Doobie", "atTENTtion", and an eight-minute mix called MATANGI for a Paris fashion show. Last year, she described the album's music as "paul simon on acid", though later, she said that the album was delayed for being "too positive".

It gets its name from M.I.A.'s real first name, Mathangi. Here's what she said about the album title:

"When I went to India, I was looking on Google for stuff that was the color of a certain green, and that's when this green goddess, Matangi, popped up. I was like, that's weird, the whole time I've been alive on this planet, my mom never mentioned where my name came from. Matangi was the goddess of knowledge and the arts--music, art, dancing, spoken word. When they invented this mythology 4,000 years ago, the concept of someone being about all those things was normal."


I wonder if they finally set a date because of her rant last night.

Kim scared of being forgotten

Kim Kardashian has been hiding from the world since giving birth to her daughter in June, trying to build anticipation for her post-baby body and baby debut, but her plan to wait as long as possible might have backfired and has exclusively learned that she’s afraid she’s waited too long and her star power is slipping.

The reality show princess gave birth to North West on June 15 and has been staying behind closed doors at her mother Kris Jenner’s mansion, bonding with the baby, hanging with Kanye West because her plan was to debut a killer in shape body to huge fanfare.

“Kim has had this plan to show off how great she looks after giving birth and selling the pictures or videos for a lot of money, but she’s getting worried that it’s been too long and people aren’t as excited about seeing her anymore,” a source close to Kim told

The 32-year-old new mom has been getting concerned that she’s not as popular as she once was.

“Kim is used to having millions of adoring fans begging to see her all the time, but there has been a shift in her fan base and she’s getting nervous that people don’t care as much about her,” the source said.

“After all the excitement the whole world had for Kate Middleton’s royal baby Kim had hoped that people would care about her that much, but now she’s freaking out that they’re not.”

Her mom has been using Kim as a stunt on her new talk show, pretending to carry baby North on the first day and then airing a video from Kim, but the source said she doesn’t think the buzz is there anymore.

“Kim’s scared that she is going to be forgotten and that she won’t be the most famous mom anymore.”

'Now You See Me' Again? Magician Sequel Coming Soon

When a studio sees a good thing -- like, say, a crowd-pleasing heist flick that doesn't break the bank -- you can bet a follow-up or two will be coming soon. Although details are scarce on the "Now You See Me" sequel, Lionsgate has already set it in motion, which, from a financial standpoint, makes perfect sense.

It didn't take any sleight of hand for the bank-robbing magicians in "Now You See Me" to quietly earn millions at box offices around the world. The Louis Leterrier heist film has snagged $115.6 million in the United States since debuting at the end of May; it's earned even more than that overseas, and it hasn't even opened in Japan, Australia, or China -- the second-largest film market in the world.

As opposed to previous Leterrier flicks like "The Incredible Hulk" and "Clash of the Titans," "Now You See Me" cost a relatively measly $75 million and didn't suffer the studio bloat of things like post-production 3D. (Leterrier was blunt in recent interviews about the decision to add 3D to "Clash" in post -- both that it was "famously horrible" and that it wasn't his decision.) Although it's not clear if the director will be returning to the sequel, it seems like a good fit.

One would also hope that stars Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Isla Fisher, Dave Franco, and Mark Ruffalo return, although with "The Avengers: Age of Ultron" in pre-production, it's possible Ruffalo will be pretty busy.

Lionsgate and Summit are aiming to start production in 2014.

Vince Vaughn and wife welcome son Vernon Lindsay

Vince Vaughn and his wife Kyla welcomed their second child, son Vernon Lindsay Vaughn, on Wednesday, Aug. 7, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

Named after Vaughn’s father, Vernon weighed in at 8 lbs., 4 oz. and measured 21 inches long when he was born at a hospital outside of Los Angeles.

The actor’s rep confirms the good news to PEOPLE.

Vaughn, 43, announced in April that he and Kyla, 34, were expecting a little sibling for their 2½-year-old daughter Locklyn Kyla.

Just four days prior to Vernon’s arrival, the couple — who married in January 2010 — enjoyed a night out at Tony Bennett‘s 87th birthday and Exploring the Arts fundraiser.

“The whole family is so excited to welcome this sweet boy into the world,” says a friend of the Vaughns. “I am sure Vince will have Vernon out on the ball field in no time!”

Jen Aniston throwing birthday party for Justin Theroux tomorrow

Jennifer Aniston is throwing a birthday party for fiancé Justin Theroux – who will turn 42 Saturday – at their newly renovated Los Angeles home.

Saturday marks another milestone in the couple's relationship: It's also the one-year anniversary of their engagement.

A flurry of reports about the birthday party has launched speculation about a possible surprise wedding for the pair. If that were to happen, though, the couple wouldn't have much time for a honeymoon: Aniston is due in Europe early next week to promote her new comedy, We're the Millers.

While there have been reports the couple has pushed back their nuptial plans, the actress, 44, has been adamant in saying they are simply taking their time.

"We just want to do it when it's perfect and we're not rushed ... We already feel married," Aniston told the Associated Press in July.

Usher Custody War Tameka Loses But Gets an Usher Hug

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

After a bitterly contentious hearing and drama surrounding the near-death of their son, Usher showed an unbelievably classy move in court Friday -- hugging his ex-wife Tameka after the judge dismissed her request for primary custody.

Pretty shocking ... especially considering the painfully awkward silence that preceded the hearing.

Tameka filed an emergency request for primary custody after her and Usher's 5-year-old son Usher Raymond V nearly drowned in a pool on Monday. Usher currently has primary custody of their two boys.

In court Friday, Tameka used the pool accident as an example of Usher being an inattentive father, who employs incompetent caretakers -- in this case his aunt Rena -- to look after their children.

Usher's lawyer shot back, insisting Usher's a great dad and the children are thriving with him, despite the recent pool accident ... which, Usher argued, could have happened to anybody.

During questioning, Tameka broke down in tears talking about her son's accident, saying she didn't know if her child suffered permanent brain or heart damage.

FYI, Usher Raymond V is still in the hospital -- Tameka claimed it's because of lingering complications, including a low heart rate. Usher said it's because he doesn't want his son discharged before doctors are 100% sure he's okay.

Christian Bale Reportedly Offered $50 Million To Reprise Batman

According to a new ebook, “Beyond Batman: The Unauthorized True Story of Christian Bale and His Dark Knight Dilemma” this may be the case.

The book cites sources close to Legendary Pictures that asserts Bale may have “no choice” but to don the cowl at least one more time.

According to the publisher of “Beyond Batman,” the Hollywood mega star likely won’t be able to refuse the potential $50 million payday that could come from playing Batman again.

Damn that is a lot of Bat bucks! (lord)

In my experience where there is smoke, there is fire. There is something in law called slander and no one would be stupid enough to put false information like this out there to make a quick profit and face a lawsuit no matter how many disclaimers the book has.

The book’s author Vince Russel says the following:

As the bat signal still glimmers with fervor above Bale’s Hollywood marquee, Christian Bale’s experience as the Batman of our generation is about to prove more inescapable than he expected. With three of the most successful Batman films in Hollywood history under his belt, Christian Bale is now facing extraordinary pressure to become The Dark Knight once again.

Could it be that Bale not sees the Batman films the way Robert Downey Jr sees the Iron Manfilms? The author adds:

“Although Downey has appeared as Tony Stark in four movies in less than a decade, he’s hardly typecast as Iron Man,” Russel says, “Downey has balanced his action film escapades with other projects that have harnessed his talents and earned critical acclaim in the process. If Bale follows a similar formula, his box office glory days may not be behind him – a reality that other men who have donned the black cape weren’t so fortunate to experience.

The book at the end makes a ballsy claim. Christian Bale’s future success as a top Hollywood draw…

“…may need Batman every bit as much as the Batman franchise still needs Christian Bale.”

I don’t know about that. Christian is after all an Oscar winner. What do you cool kids think? Is this guy right or wrong? Chime in below. I’m doing my rounds and you know I am all over this story. The minute I know who the Goddamn Batman is, Bale or no Bale, I will let you all know.

Is Harry Potter a Feminist Text?

By hpboy13

As a fandom, there are many things that we have come to agree on over the years. Neville is a BAMF. Voldemort is a Drama Queen. The Prince’s Tale makes us cry. The Epilogue kind of sucked. But there is one question that divides us to this day, one that I have long intended to address in an essay but kept putting off: is Harry Potter a feminist text?

Every fan will have an opinion on this, and they are all different – I’ve heard the gamut of them, from “totally feminist” to “anti-feminist.” I will give my views on the matter, and beg everyone to keep the debate in the comments civil, since this is a touchier subject than most.

The way I see it, whether HP is feminist or not depends on three factors:

1. Are the female characters strong? Do they all sit around fussing about dresses and waiting to be rescued, or do they kick butt and take names all on their own?

2. Are the women independent? Is the #1 goal to find a man to settle down with, or is it okay to not give two hoots about men?

3. How are the women treated within the universe of the books? Are they treated as no more than housewives and homemakers, expected to stay out of the “men’s business”? Or are they treated as equals?

Chloe Grace Moretz Blasts Jim Carrey's Stand Against 'Kick-Ass 2'

Jim Carrey's morally driven decision to drop out of the publicity campaign for "Kick-Ass 2" is becoming a lonely stand — especially when it comes to his cast mates.

Chloe Grace Moretz, the sixteen-year-old actress who plays Hit Girl in the upcoming film, has made it clear she doesn't put much stock in Carrey's feelings about the film's violence.

"It's a movie," Moretz recently told a reporter. "If you are going to believe and be affected by an action film, you shouldn't go to see 'Pocahontas' because you are going to think you are a Disney princess."

In June, Carrey, an outspoken advocate for gun control, posted a message on Twitter declaring, "I did 'Kickass' a month b4 Sandy Hook and now in all good conscience I cannot support that level of violence." Since then, Carrey, who plays born-again vigilante Colonel Stars and Stripes in the sequel, has declined to take part in promotion for the film. But his young co-star has a different take on the matter.

"Madman" Kanye West is Psychologically Manipulating Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West aren't even married yet, but it looks like the honeymoon period following the birth of daughter North West is turning into a straight-up bummer summer.

Kanye, a man who is unlikely to hear the word "no" from anyone hoping to keep their job, is reportedly making life a nightmare for new mom Kim, who is constantly being forced to bend to his will.

In Touch (via RadarOnline) reports that Kim is being controlled and manipulated by the man she used to think was the love of her life, and it looks as though she sees little alternative to his cruelty.

"She has to do what he says — or else,” says a friend. ”She knows the littlest thing can set him off. She knows not to push Kanye too far … she’s doing her best to keep him happy"

The friend reveals that Kim is living as though she's been "trapped by a madman," with Kanye making all of her choices for her.

"When the time comes for her to step out into public, he wants her to be wearing outfits he picked out for her,” reveals another confidante. “He’s telling her sisters, mom — everyone — what they can and cannot post on Twitter.”

As for the real reason Kim hasn't made her big post-baby reveal yet, friends say Kanye wants to control that, too. Since baby Nori was born, friends say the star has "brought in more security around the house and won’t let Kim leave.”

Do you think that Kim is simply making compromises now that she's a mom, or do you believe that Kanye is too controlling?

Marina Abramovic Talks About Training Lady Gaga


If there's one thing we've learned by now it's that Lady Gaga doesn't do anything halfway. Whether it's wearing ankle-hobbling footwear or, literally, performing until she almost breaks her hip, Mother Monster is nothing if not committed to her art.

So, when Gaga took a trip upstate last week to study with legendary performance artist Marina Abramović — known for her endurance-testing works — it stands to reason that the singer didn't pull up short when Abramović put her through the paces for more than 20 hours of training in the rigorous Abramović Method. A sliver of the results can be seen in a NSFW video
 posted by the Abramović Institute on Wednesday.

 told MTV News that she had never heard of Gaga before the singer showed up to her "The Artist Is Present" MoMA show in 2010. "I was not aware she was there," Abramović said. But after the singer showed up, Twitter exploded with activity and, all of a sudden, the young audience for the show "exploded."

I guess this means Gaga is prepping for some performance art piece in the future. I just hope it's not at the vmas.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Won’t Be Playing Christian Grey In His Wife’s Movie Adaptation

Aaron Taylor-Johnson will once again be hitting the big screen as Kick Ass in the sequel to the 2010 movie, but the star admits he has no desire to play the part of Christian Grey in the much talked about film version of the mummy porn novel.

Despite the fact that his wife, director Sam Taylor-Wood, is set to direct Fifty Shades Aaron says that at 23 he’s too young to play the 27-year-old Christian, the kinky millionaire who seduces the books heroin Anastasia Steele.

He also modestly tells The Metro: “I am not Christian Grey. I mean, he is supposed to be the most gorgeous man on the f***ing planet!

Logan Lerman for Fade In Magazine

It’s possible to admire Logan Lerman in any number of films without always realizing that you’re looking at the same actor. The Butterfly Effect, 3:10 to Yuma, the Percy Jackson franchise (the second of which, Percy Jackson: The Sea of Monsters opens this month) and The Perks of Being a Wallflower have each put Lerman on the map from a fresh angle. Taken as a whole, they trace a powerful development.

From the beginning, Lerman has been frank about his ambitions to direct. With his tremendous success in Perks paving the way toward such exciting projects as Darren Aronofsky’s Noah and David Ayer’s World War II action picture Fury, it would seem that the only thing standing in the way is his demand as an actor.

Ariana Grande tweets first-ever original song

Ariana Grande has been working hard on music ever since she was 13 years old, which she reminded her fans of recently. She shared a video of her first ever original song, hinting that she might sing it on her own tour. She clearly made no promises, but the song is called “Higher” and holds many memories for her as she finally makes her musical dreams come true. Here is what she had to say about the song, which she also shared the video of (which you can find down below).

First original song I ever recorded. I was 13. How fun would it be to do this at 1 of the #ListeningSessions shows?

This of course is exciting news for her, especially over the fact that she is actually making it now. It has to be weird for her to reflect on now. Just less than 10 years ago she started her journey and now she is finally where she wants to be. I hope that Ariana never loses her gratitude for moments like these when looks back at her start on this road. It just makes her all that more likable in my eyes when she reflects on moments like these.

How do you feel about Ariana Grande sharing her first, original song?

Christina Aguilera

The singer was spotted leaving Barneys in Beverly Hills on Thursday showing off her impressive weight loss in some tight denim and a long-sleeved shirt that clung to her midsection.

It was definitely a more casual look for the judge of "The Voice" -- and we love the laid-back threads.

The 32-year-old mom whipped herself back into tip-top shape just in time for the upcoming season of the NBC reality show.

Aguilera was also rocking a shorter 'do, sporting shoulder-length hair under her Pittsburgh Pirates hat.

The Daily Mail offers a riposte to Stephen Fry's Olympics blog; Stephen Fry DRAGS THEM in return

DM can stand for Direct Messages in Twitter or the Daily Mail out there in the big bad world. I don’t read either, and all my friends know that I never read British newspapers of any kind.

Nonetheless there are always those that like to sympathise: today I’ve had plenty of, “Ooh you seem to have riled the Daily Mail” and “The Daily Fail have got it in for you today”… tweets. None of which has made me turn to the loathed organ in response and dignify it with reading whatever it is that it has written about me. I have pieced together that it’s the usual “what right does the pompous luvvie have…” etc etc. Well, the same right as the pompous journo who wrote the piece I would assume. In other words the right of free speech. Are they suggesting I actually don’t have the right to blog? Apparently the hate-piece* was put together by a disc jockey called Colin something or other whose great use for Lord Dacre, the Mail’s autocratic führer, is that he is gay. “Hurrah! Stephen Fry doesn’t speak for all gay people!” Well, of course I bloody don’t and would never claim to. But if there’s one thing the Mail can do better than any other paper it’s erect a fake coconut and then knock it down and claim a prize.

I have helped spark a debate about the Sochi Olympiad and I can be as proud (or “smug” as they would undoubtedly call it) about that as I like.

There’s no real personal animus in this at all. A friend gave me a “Hated by the Daily Mail” badge and it remains one of the proudest things I own.

But there’s form here. The Mail still can’t quite live with the shame that it has always, always been historically wrong about everything - large and small - from Picasso to equal pay for women. Collapse )

'The Hills' Executive Producer Talks Alternate Ending, Possible Reunion

MTV has been re-airing its glossy reality soap The Hills this summer, and today, they re-aired the series finale … but with a twist. The network debuted an alternate ending for the show, a spin-off of their similar hit Laguna Beach, which featured the return of — gasp! — star Lauren Conrad. The previous ending had Brody waving goodbye to on-again, off-again girlfriend Kristen and then the camera pulling back to reveal they were actually shooting on a backlot — a nod to rumors of the series being staged. In this new edition, Brody returns to his apartment where Conrad, who left the show in season 4, is sitting on his couch. When Brody says that he was saying goodbye to an old friend, Conrad cheekily responds, “It’s hard to say goodbye,” and then lets out a huge grin.

EW exclusively chatted with series creator Adam DiVello about this surprise ending, how it all came together, why it was scrapped, and the potential for a Hills reunion movie.

Selma Blair Very Public Breastfeeding

Selma Blair is mixing fun bags with shopping bags -- the former "Anger Management" star was unabashedly breastfeeding in plain sight at one of the biggest shopping spots in L.A. like it was no big deal.

Blair was spotted at The Grove with her almost 2-year-old son ... pumping the kid full of breast milk on a trolley, surrounded by shoppers.

The move is interesting ... considering earlier this week, a Chick-fil-A in Tennessee came under fire when an employee asked a mother to stop nursing her 5-month-old kid where other people could see.

Clearly, Selma's not shy when it comes to the matter -- but we gotta ask ...

Robin Thicke: 'I want to do Christmas, country, gospel albums'

Robin Thicke has revealed hopes to record three different styles of albums.

The 'Blurred Lines' singer expressed his desire to record a Christmas-themed LP, along with albums dedicated to country and gospel music.

Following the huge success of his collaboration with Pharrell Williams and TI, he told The AP: "I want to get right in the studio.

"I want to make a country album, a Christmas album, a gospel album. I'm like, 'Finally!' I'm ready to make four albums right now."

Thicke also revealed how his record company were not fond of 'Blurred Lines' upon first listen.

When asked if it sounded like a hit, he said: "It did to me, and then I went into the record label and I played it for the heads of the label, head of pop radio... and everybody just went, 'Nice. Nice'.

"It got no response, I was kind of surprised by that. A few months later I went back in, played it again, like, 'I think we have enough records here. I think we've got four or five really strong singles - or at least four or five options for singles'."

Katy Perry sails while Lady Gaga continues to fail?

Earlier, Katy Perry released the artwork to her long-awaited single "Roar" that hits the airwaves on Monday. Critics across the board have praised Perry's artwork as groundbreaking, fresh and artistic. The reaction to a preview clip of the single has also been positive across the board.

Unfortunately, for Lady Gaga, things aren't looking so bright. Her song "Burqa" has received almost universal bad press. Some have even gone as far to say that the song promotes raping Muslim women. Others have noted that the song sounds like a desperate attempt to latch onto the EDM phase.

Speaking of desperate, Lady Gaga released a pornographic video depicting herself making animal noises and running naked through the forest. Some of Lady Gaga's fans consider the clip "art," but most people consider it a desperate attempt to promote her already poorly received album ARTPOP.

Lady Gaga is going to take the stage at the MTV Video Music Awards on August 25. It's said to be the first performance since her claims of cancelling her tour due to hip surgery. However, many have claimed foul play and suggest the hip surgery is a cover up for bad ticket sales and facial plastic surgery.

Kim Basinger triumphs against SeaWorld

Actress Kim Basinger has long been a vocal advocate of animal rights. Basinger collaborated with PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) to fight Seaworld’s plans to capture and import Russian beluga whales. This fight has proved successful: the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration have denied SeaWorld's request to use these beluga whales to restock their parks.

PETA spokesperson Moira Colley commented that Blackfish has been instrumental in changing the public’s perception of captive whales and marine parks:

"Thanks to movies such as Blackfish and PETA's lawsuit against SeaWorld for violating orcas' 13th Amendment right to freedom, people have learned of the rodeo-style capture of whales from their pods in the ocean....Finally, the abusement  parks will close, and the whales and dolphins will be removed from their cement bathtubs and returned to the oceans, where they belong."

Blackfish tells the story of Tilikum, a performing killer whale that killed several people while in captivity. Along the way, director-producer Gabriela Cowperthwaite compiles shocking footage and emotional interviews to explore the creature’s extraordinary nature, the species’ cruel treatment in captivity, the lives and losses of the trainers and the pressures brought to bear by the mulit-billion dollar sea-park industry.
