YouTube Cover Songs Threatened by New Copyright Lawsuit

YouTube notched a major victory when Viacom lost its landmark copyright infringement suit against Google last month, but suits involving the online-video giant keep rolling in. The New York Times is reporting a group of music publishers including Warner/Chappell are taking aim at Fullscreen, the company behind many of YouTube’s most popular videos.

According to its website, Fullscreen counts 2.5 billion monthly views, 15,000 YouTube channels, and 200 million subscribers, making it one of the largest multi-channel networks, or MCNs, that produces its own content. Their most-watched videos include unofficial covers of popular songs by artists like Lady Gaga, Britney Spears and Kanye West, which is where the plaintiffs – including Warner Music Group subsidiary Warner/Chappell, ironically itself the recent target of a copyright lawsuit regarding the song “Happy Birthday”– are finding fault with the company.

Janet Mock Interviews B. Scott On Coming Out As Transgender & BET Lawsuit

Throughout my life, I’ve felt the pressure of having to define my multiple identities for myself and for others. I love words, yet I know that words often fail us. At times, words are unable to fully encompass who we know ourselves to be. Knowing this, I felt immense empathy for B. Scott when I heard him [B. welcomes the following preferred gender pronouns (PGPs): he/him, she/her, they/their] announce after several years in the media spotlight that he is transgender.

B.’s personal announcement arose in the midst of his “gender identity discrimination” lawsuit against BET. According to B.’s open letter to fans, the network hired him as a red carpet style correspondent at the 2013 BET Awards in June, forced him to change into more masculine attire and ultimately replaced him with Adrienne Bailon, a cis Latina woman (cis is a term used to describe those whose assigned sex at birth aligns with their gender identity). He wrote that the day’s events “made me feel less than and that something was wrong with who I am as a person.”

Though BET released a statement citing “miscommunications from both parties” and stating they “regret any unintentional offense to B. Scott and anyone within the LGBT community and we seek to continue embracing all gender expressions,” B. pushed the network for a “true public apology” and “fair remuneration.” The lawsuit has spawned many headlines, but what struck me is the discourse B.’s transgender revelation has sparked.

“As a society we’ve been conditioned to believe that a person has to be ‘exactly’ this or ‘exactly’ that,” B. wrote, before adding, “My spirit truly lies somewhere in between [male and female]. It is that same spirit that has allowed me to become so comfortable in my skin, choose how I express myself, and contributes to how I live my day-to-day life.” B. cited GLAAD’s definition of transgender, an umbrella term that clusters diverse groups of people (transsexuals, like myself, cross-dressers, gender-variant and genderqueer people and many more) whose gender identity and/or gender expression differs from the sex they were assigned at birth due to the appearance of their genitals, as a catalyst for his announcement.

“It is by that definition that I accept and welcome the ‘transgender’ label with open arms,” B. wrote, igniting discourse, debate and discussion among B.’s adoring fans (whom he calls “Love Muffins”), his detractors and general bystanders within and outside of the trans, queer, wider LGBT community and of course within the overlapping people of color, specifically black community, we both belong to.

I thought this was a really great interview between queen Janet and B.Scott (perhaps tl;dr for the attention spans of some, but definitely worth reading imo). Both J and B touched on very important issues surrounding race, gender, sexuality, and the idea of authenticity.

What were the biggest moments since last year on Twitter?

This is a selection of some of the water-cooler moments that really got people on Twitter talking. (Of course, there’s always a chance that tomorrow something even bigger will happen.)

The measurement you see is primarily Tweets per minute (TPM) — which we have written about previously. It gives you the highest number of Tweets about a specific topic or hashtag within a given minute. The number by itself doesn’t tell you much — but when comparing the TPM around different events, you begin to see how significant an event can be on Twitter.

Amanda Bynes' mom granted temporary conservatorship

(CNN) -- Amanda Bynes is going to remain under medical care as legal control over her person and estate is temporarily handed to her mother, Lynn.

Bynes, 27, was placed under an involuntary psychiatric hold in late July after she was "involved in a disturbance in a residential neighborhood" in Thousand Oaks, California. According to People magazine, the hold was initially for 72 hours, but on July 25, a judge ordered Bynes to be held for an additional two weeks.

Songs From the Victory Tour and Beyond? Coldplay to be Included in "THG: Catching Fire" Soundtrack

If there's one thing to be glad of when it comes to the young adult movie revolution, it's the soundtracks. They may not still be on rotation, but given how awful they might have been, the OSTs for these movies have generally been bright spots; the "Twilight" soundtracks were invariably better than the movies, and the "Hunger Games," while spottier, was produced by T-Bone Burnett, and had credible names like Arcade Fire, Kid Cudi, The Decemberists, Glen Hansard and Neko Case alongside the teen-friendly likes of Taylor Swift.

With the second film in the franchise approaching, it was only a matter of time before we learned who'd be lending some tunes to "Catching Fire," which hits in November, and a press release has revealed that the lead single from the soundtrack will come from one of the biggest bands in the world, in the shape of Coldplay. At least it wasn't Mumford & Sons, right?

The track, entitled "Atlas," is the first time that the band have lent an original song to a movie, and will hit digital retailers on August 26th, almost three months in advance of the movie. Director Francis Lawrence comments "I have great respect and admiration for Coldplay, and we are thrilled with how well they have connected to the themes and ideas within the film. Their unwavering passion and excitement for the project elevated the collaboration even further, and we can't wait to share this music with audiences around the world." You'll be able to hear the track in a few weeks, and the rest of the soundtrack should be unveiled nearer the release of "The Hunger Games; Catching Fire," which hits on November 22nd, 2013.


Quite surprised that Coldplay never contributed an original song to a film soundtrack before given that their music is used in some trailers and commercials. Who else do you want to hear on the "THG: Catching Fire" soundtrack, ONTD? I'm personally hoping that Florence + The Machine, Ellie Goulding, or even Radiohead might give us something awesome rather than Taylor freakin' Swift ugh.

Jodie Foster in 'Elysium' & More Actresses in Roles Written for Men

It’s a long-held gripe in Hollywood that there’s a dearth of great roles for women. A handful of actresses have devised a clever cure for the problem: steal the guys’ parts.

That’s what Jodie Foster is doing. Her character Secretary Delacourt in Elysium, Neill Blomkamp’s dystopian action blockbuster that hits theaters this weekend, was originally Secretary Rhodes… and originally male. Foster’s not the first actress to inspire a gender change in the script. From Glenn Close to Angelina Jolie, here’s a history of actresses playing parts originally written for men.

Peeta can swim in The Hunger Games: Catching Fire film. Book fans aren't going to be happy

Catching Fire's roles for Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence may call for changes fans won't be happy about. Although fans expected The Hunger Games sequel to have minor changes from the book, some of those changes will seem drastic.

When Jennifer took on the character Katniss, many people were disappointed because in the book, Katniss is clearly not a "white" girl. The character from the book has olive skin and brown eyes. That was one major change many found hard to accept even though Lawrence has done an amazing job with the role.

Nina Jacobson, the producer of the sequel, said, "It's as agonizing for us to lose things from the book as it is for a fan. I want every single thing in there. But you know what? If you have to give up something in order to give more time to Katniss and Gale or to Effie as she starts to feel a conscience, you make the sacrifices in order to serve the characters and themes that are more essential."

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will bring more departures from the book. Josh's character Peeta will be given the gift of swimming. In the book, "his character was paralyzed with fear when other tributes dive into the water." Hutcherson does his role justice but that's one major change!

Also, Bonnie and Twill from the book will not exist in the movie. They are the ones who tell Katniss about District 13. While the storyline will remain with District 13 intact. Those vital characters will not appear in the movie.

Lastly, District 12's peacekeeper, Darius, won't be added into Catching Fire either so don't expect anyone to intervene while Gale gets whipped.

Fortunately even with some tweaking, Josh Hutcherson and Jennifer Lawrence bring exactly what's needed to their roles. This movie wouldn't be the same without them. They've developed a friendship that goes beyond the set. At least they'll still be in the movie, right?

Usher & Tameka Battle Brewing BEFORE Pool Accident

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Usher and his ex-wife Tameka Raymond were on the brink of war BEFORE their son almost drowned in a pool ... and it was all over child support payments, TMZ has learned.

Usher filed legal docs earlier this month asking a judge to lower his child support payment to Tameka. As it stood, Usher was shelling out $8,000 / month for the couple's 2 sons ... which he claims is BS.

Here's why ... Usher says that child support amount is from an old agreement and hasn't been changed since he was granted PRIMARY custody last year. He says he's been overpaying the last 7 months and wants a judge to remedy the situation.

Usher requested a hearing on the matter -- but so far, no date has been set.

TMZ broke the story ... Tameka and Usher were ALREADY in court this week, battling over custody. Tameka asked a judge to grant her MORE custody -- claiming Usher's to blame for their son's pool accident -- but she was shot down.

One of the many things fans are looking forward to in The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug is the Beorn, a human/beast shapeshifter that appears in J.R.R. Tolkien's novel.

Potentially awkward seating chart for TCAs

In a video from E! News, we see a glimpse backstage with Teen Choice Award hosts Darren Criss and Lucy Hale. We also catch a glimpse of some of the seating for the event.

As seen in second half of the picture below, Demi Lovato will be seating right in between her close friend, Nick Jonas, and ex boyfriend, Joe Jonas.

In the first half of the photo, we see another potentially awkward seating arrangement. Miley Cyrus is seated only one seat down from Selena Gomez. While neither of them are openly feuding, there have been rumors that the two do not get along well.

Orlando Bloom And Condola Rashad's 'Romeo And Juliet' Photo Call

Romeo And Juliet - Photo Call

Romeo And Juliet - Photo Call 2

No, Orlando Bloom isn't cheating on his lovely wife. He is preparing to make his Broadway debut in a modern adaptation of the Shakespeare play "Romeo and Juliet" with Condola Rashad and the two posed for a promotional photo shoot on Wednesday, Aug. 8. They rode a motorcycle and shared a kiss as they arrived at the play's home, the Richard Rodgers Theatre, for the first time.

"Romeo and Juliet" is set to open officially on Sept. 19.

Condola, the 26-year-old daughter of "Cosby Show" actress Phylicia Rashad, made her own Broadway debut in the original play "Stick Fly" in 2011 and also appeared in a revival of "The Trip to Bountiful" earlier this year.

She made her on-screen debut in a 2009 episode of the CBS show "The Good Wife." She went on to star in "Sex and the City 2, Lifetime Television's 2012 reboot of "Steel Magnolias" and the now-canceled NBS musical series "Smash," playing Cynthia Moran.

Chick-fil-A at the Center of Public Breastfeeding Controversy

 photo 02797cd8-f955-4d34-a0dc-ee017d44f720_BRGZ34cCYAAAaiX_zps57fb39f7.jpg

Aiming to educate diners about a woman’s right to breastfeed in public, a group of about 20 women staged a "nurse-in" Wednesday at a Chick-fil-A in Knoxville, Tennessee. That’s where, earlier in the week, an employee had asked a mother nursing her 5-month-old daughter to stop.

"Just as I was finishing up, an employee came up and told me other parents were afraid of letting their children play while I was feeding her, especially without a cover," mom Jennifer Day told ABC News 6 in Knoxville. So she rallied other lactating pals, who decided the protest would be an effective way of letting folks know that the state law — which allows women to breastfeed anywhere, public or private, where they are "otherwise authorized to be present" — is on the mom’s side.

"We want everyone to feel safe. We want nursing mothers to feel safe. Because what is more family than a mother and her baby? And this is a family restaurant," nurse-in co-organizer Anna Hurley (a former Chick-fil-A employee) told the TV station. "We just want to normalize breastfeeding. We just want society to change its views.”

Early reviews say Katy Perry's 'PRISM' is a pop music masterpiece

Today, several music critics got an early preview of Katy Perry's upcoming album "Prism" and most say it is a Grammy magnet masterpiece. The best review calls it the best pop album in years that is on par with Madonna's "Ray of Light" and Alanis Morisette's "Jagged Little Pill." The album is expected to easily outsell Lady Gaga's ARTPOP, which has garnered nothing but bad press. LOL

Katy Perry, the most popular female singer on the planet now, released another preview clip for her single "Roar." Needless to say, it sounds hard, compelling, and will definitely be the number one song of the year. It should get a Grammy Award. In general, the critics believe Katy Perry will be the Grammy Woman of the Year in 2013.

Katy Perry has been a very popular artist since 2008. However, she has not garnered the critical respect of someone like Adele or Amy Winehouse. However, critics agree that "Prism" will change all that. Katy Perry is expected to hit the road to promote "Prism" next year. We can hardly wait! It's time to start saving up money for tickets.



Leah Remini is the new QUEEN of the ex-Scientologists -- according to two famous defectors ... because she had the iron gonads to stand up to the Church.

As you know ... Leah filed a missing person's report with the LAPD ... claiming Shelly Miscavige, the wife of Scientology leader David Miscavige ... hadn't been seen for 6 years.  Detectives found Shelly and determined she's fine.

Marc and Claire Headley -- two outspoken, former high-ranking Scientologists are praising Leah for her testicular fortitude. Claire tells us, "Shelly was seen for the first time in 7 years. At least we know she's alive."

Claire is skeptical that Shelly is exercising free will, and believes the outreach by Leah will show Shelly that people care about her "on the outside."

Marc believes Shelly was "trotted out" to LAPD officers by Scientology handlers, but a source connected to the Church tells TMZ that's ridiculous.  The LAPD also tells TMZ ... they have concluded Shelly is not being held against her will.

Kevin Federline Gets Engaged to Victoria Prince in Las Vegas!

Well, this will be one memorable weekend for Kevin Federline! Britney Spears' ex-husband, 35, and his girlfriend Victoria Prince got engaged in Las Vegas and are planning to marry there -- all in the same weekend, a source confirms to Us Weekly.

"She said yes!" a source tells Us. "Kevin told her he was going to Vegas for a job, but he surprised her by proposing and [then plans on] marrying her while they are there."

The insider added, "Victoria really wanted this for a long time so she's gotta be blown away. She's proven herself with him from day one. Victoria is an awesome girl."

According to Clark County records, the couple were granted a marriage license Friday night in Las Vegas.

The former backup dancer and Prince, 30, a former volleyball pro from Washington State turned special education teacher, have been dating since 2008 and are parents to their 1-year-old daughter, Jordan Kay. Jordan is with them in Vegas, the source confirms.

Federline also has two sons with Spears -- Jayden James, 6, and Sean Preston, 7. He also shares an 11-year-old daughter, Kori, and 9-year-old son Kaleb, with ex-girlfriend Shar Jackson. (The pair were engaged when he began a relationship with the "Ooh La La" singer in 2004.)

Federline and Spears, 31, married in September 2004 after a few months of dating. The former X Factor judge filed for divorce from Federline in Nov. 2006, citing irreconcilable differences.

In 2010, the dad of five revealed to Ryan Seacrest that a wedding to Prince was most likely on the horizon. "Would I get married again? Definitely," he explained.


Skyler White Is the Best Character on "Breaking Bad"

On AMC’s Breaking Bad, Skyler White (Anna Gunn) plays many roles: the wife of Walt, the show’s meth-cooking, empire-seeking chemist; the barrier protecting her children from said chemist; the on-screen anchor for our (hopefully strong) sense of morality, which can seem to drift from us as we identify with her husband’s malignant ambitions.

But if you ask the nearly 8,000 people who have liked the Facebook page “I Hate Skyler White,” or the nearly 30,000 who, as Laura Bennett notes, have liked the “Fuck Skyler White” group, then she may seem to be, more than any of those other things, “a shrieking hypocritical harpy who goes ballistic if people don’t kowtow to her every whim, desire and ever-changing moral structure,” as someone on the former page recently put it. That assessment is, of course, shamefully ignorant—isn’t it actually a description of Walt?—but it is representative of an overwhelming and misogyny-tinged distaste for Skyler among certain fans of the show, which Alyssa Rosenberg wrote about for Slate last summer. Tellingly, Rosenberg’s defense of Skyler elicited the exact comments it spoke out against. “She is actually making my Husband hate the show,” one reader wrote, “and this makes it hard. I remain loyal to Jesse, but I wish Walter would rid himself of his strayed wife, she’s holding him down.”

Andre Leon Talley Isn't Gay

Despite making number 45 in Out magazine's 2007 list of the "50 Most Powerful Gay Men and Women in America," former Vogue editor-at-large and fashion guru André Leon Talley told Vanity Fair this week that he's not gay. He did admit however to having "some very gay experiences":

When (Vogue contributing editor Vanessa) Grigoriadis asks Talley if he thought he was gay, even in high school, he responds, “No, no, no. I was just into my magazines and the drawings. I had a very strict upbringing, almost puritanical. I lived there all the way through college. I was in my grandmother’s house, and I respected that!”

Talley tells Grigoriadis that he rejects the “label” and says that, while he has “had very gay experiences, yes, I swear on my grandmother’s grave that I never slept with a single designer in my life. Never, ever desired, never was asked, never was approached, never, ever bought, in my entire career. Never. Not one. Skinny or fat. Never.”

A Brian Kinney post!

Gale Harold, best known as Brian Kinney from Showtime's “Queer as Folk”, has also appeared in numerous plays, films and television series such as “Desperate Housewives” and “The Secret Circle.” Watch for his latest film, currently in production, called “The Being Experience.”

What was the audition like for "Queer As Folk?”
“When that audition happened, I had already decided to leave Los Angeles. I hadn't decided where I was headed but it was going to be either Chicago or New York. I couldn't decide which because I had $5 to my name. The cart was definitely before the horse.
I had no reservations about the part. I had reservations about auditioning. I was slightly traumatized by my 99% record of rejection. I had been cast in one part. That film was a blast, but I was still trying to toughen up to survive the brutality of the other 99%. I didn't believe I'd ever get another job in front of a camera, and wanted to figure out if I could cut it on stage in New York or Chicago.

At the audition I read from sides for Linda Lowy, the casting director, and I read with her associate John Brace. I had seen the original on a VHS tape my girlfriend had. I thought Aiden Gillen was a total badass, but didn't think it would ever work as an American adaptation. Anyway, I'd vowed this would be my last Los Angeles audition. Apparently it went well.

Angelina Jolie says she frightened numerous small children while playing the lead role in Maleficent, Disney’s villain-themed take on Sleeping Beauty‘s fairy tale.

“The strange thing was people with little kids would visit the set and I would think, ‘I’m a Disney character!’” Jolie said at the D23 fan convention in Anaheim, Calif., right next to Disneyland, where far less-famous actors play such characters.

“I’d go over to the children and say hi,” she told the crowd. “And they would scream and run off. One little boy actually said Mommy, ‘Please, tell the mean witch to please stop talking to me.’”

Mark Millar On The Use Of Rape In His Comics: “I Don’t Really Think It Matters”

In an article posted on The New Republic’s website about his controversial body of work, Mark Millar — the writer of Jupiter’s Legacy, Kick-Ass, The Authority, and Superman: Red Son – was asked about the many depictions of rape in his comics. The writer, whose attitudes toward rape in comics have been called into question in the past, said simply: “I don’t really think it matters.”

Here is the full quote:

The ultimate [act] that would be the taboo, to show how bad some villain is, was to have somebody being raped, you know? I don’t really think it matters. It’s the same as, like, a decapitation. It’s just a horrible act to show that somebody’s a bad guy.

A word of the wise to Selena: Don't post revenge Instagram pics

OP note: I hope this article is in jest because it's ridiculous.

Justin/Ariana pic:

Recently instagramed photo from Selena with David captioned "Homesick"

Selena, it must be hard NOT to react when Justin picks up waitresses to party with and then kisses Ariana Grande, who tweeted the pic. But here’s why you need to stop retaliating!

Selena Gomez — Don’t Worry About Justin’s Behavior
When you see a photo of him kissing Ariana Grande, a very pretty and up and coming star, who is opening for three of his shows, it must just feel like a final straw after hearing how he had fun with bottle waitresses, earlier in the week.

It must have been irresistible to retaliate by Instagramming a moody black and white photo of yourself, up close, forehead-to-forehead with handsome former Wizards of Waverly Place co-star, David Henrie. Then you added the provocative caption, “Homesick.”

You must have wanted Justin to feel some of the jealousy that you’ve been dealing with. And honestly, a lot of other young women wouldn’t blame you for trying to get some revenge on your ex.

You are someone who can’t avoid their ex! He is everywhere. You can’t go online, open a magazine, or even listen to the news without hearing about Justin.

And so when he goes to a nightclub in Southampton, N.Y. and invites a couple of pretty waitresses, who happen to resemble you, back to his hotel to party with his entourage, you are going to hear about it and see the photos.

You’d have to live in Antarctic with no internet for you to not hear the latest Justin news.

Plus, you ARE still in touch with him. You two still talk and text regularly, according to our sources at
