Amanda Bynes needs long-term hospitalization for at least a year, her doctors say.

Physicians at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Center will submit a recommendation to the judge overseeing her mother Lynn’s bid for conservatorship, stating Bynes needs prolonged treatment and should remain in her mother's care, Radar Online reported.

“Her diagnosis is complex, and the appropriate drug cocktail to treat her hasn’t been achieved...Lynn needs to be granted permanent conservatorship because Amanda wouldn’t agree to continue with treatment, ” an insider told the gossip site.

Selena Gomez Movie "Getaway" Dragged By Critics: 2% On Rotten Tomatoes

2/5 | "If you can't even deliver blatant car-nography, what's the point?" - Nick Schager (Time Out New York)
1/4 | "It's hard to remember another action entry that expends so much energy on frenetic blacktop choreography and attention-deficit editing with so little to show for it." - Tom Russo (Boston Globe)
1.5/4 | "Getaway might have been enjoyable as a mindless bit of dumb, late-summer entertainment if it had been vaguely coherent." - Christy Lemire (ChristyLemire)
1/5 | "[A] video game posing as a movie, a preposterously plotted kidnapping story starring a high-performance Mustang." - Sheri Linden (Los Angeles Times)
0.5/4 | "Getaway" could have been an excellent two-minute film." - Stephanie Merry (Washington Post)
0.5/4 | ""Getaway" is so bad that what's most surprising about it is that Nicolas Cage didn't manage to star in it." - Kyle Smith (New York Post)
1.5/4 | "
As a moviegoer, I am not against car chases, but I generally like some movie wrapped around them." - Cathy Jakicic (Milwaukee Journal Sentinel)
1/5 | "
One can only guess why Ethan Hawke felt compelled to make a high dive from the sublimity of "Before Midnight" into the twisted rubble of "Getaway." - Stephen Holden (New York Times)
1/4 | "
A car-chase clunker that can't escape its own noxious emissions." - Scott Bowles (USA Today)
0.5/4 | "
The only real benefit of Getaway is pointing out the likely winners of the next Razzie Award for Worst Screen Couple. Come on down, Hawke and Gomez, you certainly deserve it." - Peter Howell (Toronto Star)
1.5/5 | "Maybe the title isn’t a title, but an instruction: ‘Getaway,’ away from this movie, and fast." – Bill Goodykoontz (Arizona Republic)

The movie is set to become the worst reviewed movie on Rotten Tomatoes if it says at 0%. The best-reviewed film the site has ever seen: "Toy Story 2," which came out in 1999 and remains at 100% with 161 notices.

Sara Bareilles on ‘Brave’ vs 'Roar'

Sara Bareilles has a message for all those people who think Katy Perry‘s song “Roar” sounds way too much like her hit “Brave”: stop the drama. While Bareilles hears some “similarities” between the two singles, she told ABC News Radio that she and Perry are “on great terms and there’s no issue there.”

“Katy’s a friend of mine and we’ve known each other a really long time, so she even texted me about it and we went back and forth,” Bareilles said.

“The shame that I feel that’s happened is that it’s become a drama. It’s putting this negative spin on two artists that are choosing to share positive messages,” she added.

Bareilles pointed out, laughing, “If I’m not mad I don’t know why anybody else is upset. I’m like, ‘Relax, let’s just celebrate that we can be out there and encouraging people to, like, feel strong and empowered.’"

Since ending their relationship in 2010, after nearly seven years together, the two have been embroiled in a very public, bitter custody battle over their twins, daughter, Johnnie Rose, and son, Miller Steven, with mud slinging and vicious barbs traded back and forth between the pair.

Tammy Lynn’s mega lawyer, Mark Gross, filed legal docs stating that she wants to be the sole parent to make decisions on the twins health issues because Melissa has refused to allow them to be vaccinated.

Lamar Odom was arrested for DUI early Friday morning ... TMZ has learned.

The bust occurred in the San Fernando Valley at 3:54 AM.  Lamar was popped by the California Highway Patrol and taken to a nearby station, where he was booked and is being held on $15,000 bail.

He was pulled over on the 101 Freeway for going too slow -- 50 MPH.  Lamar did not respond to cops, and drove 3 exits before finally coming to a stop.  Law enforcement sources tell TMZ he showed obvious signs of intoxication. 

Lamar failed numerous field sobriety tests. 

When Lamar was booked, we're told he refused all chemical tests.

Lamar's booking sheet shows he is 6'10" and 235 lbs.

Lamar has been tooling around town lately ... this after TMZ broke the story he had been on a crack binge.


9:17 AM PT -- Law enforcement sources tell TMZ ... deputies at the scene smelled alcohol on Lamar and believe he was under the influence of both drugs and alcohol.  The sources say Lamar's driving and conduct were consistent with drugs.   We're told there were no drugs or alcohol found in Lamar's car ... only cigarettes, 2 bottles of cologne and other innocuous items.

10:05 AM PT -- According to the L.A. County Sheriff's Dept., Odom was released from custody at 8:33 AM.  However, it's unclear if Odom has actually left the station yet.

11:07 AM PT -- TMZ has just obtained a photo of Lamar's Mercedes SUV inside the tow yard, where his car was taken after the DUI arrest.

So many music comebacks this year! I just can't!
Also, never forget:

Ross Is Not Cool.

Apparently "Friends" star David Schwimmer is not being welcomed with open arms in New York City's East Village.

An unknown tagger took to the construction zone outside of Schwimmer's newly built mansion on East 6th Street to leave the actor a message. The message, written in white graffiti, read "Ross Is Not Cool," in reference to his geeky-yet-lovable "Friends" character, Ross Geller. An arrow was drawn beside it pointing to the 46-year-old's home.

The note was spotted Tuesday morning and photographed by a passerby. Workers painted over it later that day.

Tension has been mounting for years between Schwimmer and his East Village neighbors, according to the New York Post. He purchased the five-story townhouse for $4.1 million in 2010 and proceeded to demolish it in order to build a 9,000-square-foot abode. Local residents were peeved because the property, built in 1852, was “one of the finest homes in the East Village" and the oldest on the block. It was even being considered for landmark status.

Fiona Apple Tells Louis Vuitton Party to ‘Shut the Fuck Up’, Storms Off Stage

We love fashion parties as much as the next editor, but one thing we hate is when there’s a live music act and everyone in their bubbly-induced haze forgets to mind their manners. So we can only imagine how Fiona Apple, who quite frankly does not give a fuck, felt at last night’s Louis Vuitton “Timeless Muses” party in Tokyo when the audience refused to stop chatting during her performance.

According to WWD, partway through her set, Apple climbed on top of her grand piano and asked the crowd to be quiet. When that didn’t work, she summoned the fashion hordes to be silent while striking a small metal bell. Following another unsuccessful attempt, she flared up and told the audience to “shut the fuck up” while muttering other profanities, both under her breath and out loud.

Before storming off the stage, she called everyone “rude” and then shouted, “Predictable! Predictable fashion, what the fuck?” as she stormed off the stage.

While it seems that the singer knew exactly what she was signing up for, and the whole thing was doomed from the start, we’re totally Team Apple on this one.

So Apparently Actor Casting Is The "Best Thing" About Superhero Films And Not The Actual Film Itself

Following last week’s announcement — much-maligned across Twitter — that Ben Affleck was to play Batman in an upcoming crossover film featuring the Dark Knight and Superman, some reports indicate that Bryan Cranston is set to play supervillain Lex Luthor. Whether you’re excited about the news or not, keep in mind that this is about as exciting as the film is going to get, long before anyone’s seen a frame.

One Direction Should Dominate The Box Office This Weekend

The concert movie is a fantastic idea. Hire a director to follow a band doing what they would be doing anyway. Pump it up into 3-D and sell tickets to the group’s millions of fans around the world. The films are cheap to make and easily marketed. What more could a studio ask for on one of the slowest movie weekends of the year?

One Direction: This Is Us, should top the box office this weekend with an estimated $18 million, according to Exhibitor Relations. The film cost just $10 million to make and Sony was even able to get prestige documentary filmmaker Morgan Spurlock (he of Supersize Me fame) to direct the movie. ‘Tween girls, many facing a four-day weekend, should flock to the theaters to see the boys strut their stuff. The movie is the top selling ticket on Fandango, 98% of the ticket buyers are female.

Justin Timberlake Wants to Play the Riddler

Riddle me this, film fans.

Justin Timberlake would love to play the famed villain, the Riddler, to Ben Affleck's Batman, he recently divulged in a radio interview.

Speaking to radio station Fresh 102.7's Jim & Kim Morning Show on Tuesday, Timberlake, 32, confessed that playing the bad guy sounds like a fun proposition, but don't even suggest that he'd be a fabulous cast as Robin in the 2015 sequel, Man of Steel.

"I ain't playin' Robin. I have no aspiration to ever be a superhero in a movie," Timberlake said. "Now, villain! I'll tell you the villain I want to play more than anything because I grew up loving Batman, funny enough, is the Riddler."

Why go for a part as the evil nemesis with a penchant for word play? "The Riddler was like a sociopath," Timberlake explained. "He was proper crazy. So if I'm gonna play crazy, I wanna play proper crazy… I'm ready. The Riddler. Give me a call!"

Timberlake had nothing but praise for Affleck in the title role, even as some have criticized the Academy Award-winning actor-director, 41, as all wrong for the part.

"Ben Affleck as Batman. I like it," said Timberlake, who appears alongside him in the film Runner Runner. "I think he's a brilliant filmmaker. "I think he's an extreme talent so he could surprise a lot of people."

Amanda Bynes 'negotiating record deal' from hospital... where she is 'improving daily'


Looks like Amanda Bynes is planning her comeback already - as a hip hop artist.
The young actress, who is currently being held in a psychiatric ward, has been on the phone negotiating with producer Daniel Herman of Chinga Chang Records, according to reports.
The New York music impresario first approached Amanda back in June prior to her hospitalisation and has now offered her a $250,000 advance.
He told Radar Online on Friday that he had restarted negotiations with the troubled star and was hopeful the pair would be collaborating in the future.
And he said the 27 year-old, who is being held at the under an involuntary code at the Ronald Reagan UCLA Medical Centre in Los Angeles, appeared well and wanted to be released.
'I’ve talked with Amanda a few times and she wants out, he said. 'She sounded normal, lucid, chill and focused.'

Selena Gomez Wants To Get In Touch With Her Mexican Side

The 21-year-old actress and singer has had quite the summer -- not only did her album “Stars Dance” premiere at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart but Selena is also starring opposite Ethan Hawke in the upcoming action thriller “Getaway.” Earlier this week, the star spoke to ShowBizCafe about the movie and revealed a little more about her Hispanic roots and her favorite Latin singer.

In the interview with the website, Gomez lamented not being fluent in Spanish and insisted that it was something she aimed to accomplish over the years.

“Actually, it’s a shame because I should know [Spanish] better than I do,” the young star told ShowBizCafe. “I don’t know it very well because my dad’s side of the family, which is the Mexican side, they are in Texas and I’m always traveling and I’m working so it’s very hard for me to stay communicated … but I do wish I could buckle down and I want to actually learn it and be completely fluent, that’s probably on my bucket list.”

And it seems that what SelGo really needs is some practice, since she assured the website that she can actually speak “a little bit” of Spanish and grasp almost everything being said.

“I can understand it, I can understand a whole conversation it would just be hard for me to piece the response back,” Gomez said.

The singer, who embarks on her “Stars Dance” Tour this week, also said she’d most likely translate some of her songs into Spanish for her performances in South America and Spain.

Performing in Spanish is not always an easy task, but it seems like star could have some great inspiration. Much like her childhood friend Demi Lovato, Selena shares a love for the newest addition to the “X-Factor” and says she’s her favorite Latin singer.

“Paulina Rubio, she is so beautiful, and I actually have some of her music, I don’t understand what she says but I’m like ‘This is great!’,” said Gomez.

"Getaway" premieres this Friday nationwide.

Drake on the cover of Billboard Magazine

It's hard enough to make a hit song without wondering whether it'll end up on the front of a hot sauce packet. But Drake can't pretend he doesn't know that's a possibility. The 26-year-old rapper/singer born Aubrey Graham has a knack for writing songs whose lyrics turn up in unlikely places, from Twitter hashtags to the "funny-quote-goes-here" space on Taco Bell's Border Sauce. (For evidence of the latter, see Drake's Instagram, username Champagnepapi.)

Since he first popularized the millennial proverb and Oxford English Dictionary word of the year candidate YOLO (You Only Live Once) on the song "The Motto" two years ago, Drake has gone from being the hope of a new generation of rappers to the poet laureate of a new generation of adults. The phrase "started from the bottom" isn't just the name of his 2013 Billboard Hot 100 top 10 single: It's shorthand for denoting triumph despite inauspicious beginnings. "No New Friends" (featuring Rick Ross and Lil Wayne), the spiritual successor to "Started From the Bottom," is more than a club banger-the saying itself is repellent for poseurs.

"I'll be out trying to get a sandwich or something and the guy will say to me, 'I'd give you a free drink with that, but you know, no new friends,'" Drake says with a laugh. "I swear I'm not sitting around going, 'What's the new meme going to be?' But I do spend a lot of time when I'm writing, especially lately, trying to make something for people to live by. I'm trying to make anthems that are empowering to people, to find phrases that I haven't heard before. I'm not just going to sit here and be like, 'Fuckin' bitches, getting money!'"

As he approaches his feverishly anticipated third major-label album, "Nothing Was the Same" (arriving Sept. 24), Drake's ability to affect culture is at an all-time high. He's sold 4.5 million albums since his 2010 debut, "Thank Me Later," according to Nielsen SoundScan, and has appeared as a lead or featured artist in the top 10 of the Hot 100 a dozen times. With 10 No. 1s to his name, he's topped Billboard's Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart more than any artist in history, besting even his mentor and "Nothing Was the Same" sparring partner Jay Z. At this year's Grammys he won best rap album for 2011 sophomore effort Take Care, beating out elder statesmen like Nas, Rick Ross and the Roots.

Boy George On One Direction: 'They Are Probably All Bisexual'

Boy George thinks odds are that every single member of British boy band One Direction is bisexual.

The '80s legend recently spoke with the United Kingdom's Daily Star about the pop world today. He said he thinks Justin Bieber and Rihanna are heading down the wrong paths. In addition, he said he has little regard for the boys of One Direction -- Niall Horan, Zayn Malik, Liam Payne, Harry Styles and Louis Tomlinson.

“I wouldn’t know who One Direction were if they fell on my head, George said. “I’m older than them, they should treat me with respect. I blocked all the band, I couldn’t be bothered to hear anything they said but I couldn’t help winding up their fans."

George was referencing the backlash he received following a Twitter spat with Payne at the BRIT Awards in February. The 1D member supposedly refused to stop to take a photo with the 52-year-old's niece. Apparently One Direction fans joined in on the tiff.

“One tweeted me saying: ‘My mum says you’re a horrible old has-been.’ I tweeted back saying: ‘Your mum’s probably an old, fat ugly b***h,'" George said. "I was having such a laugh, fighting with One Dir­ection’s fans all night. I did say some vile things, I had too much sugar. But I really enjoyed it.”

Austin Mahone signs to Cash Money Records

Cash Money Records continues to grow and diversify their label with new acts. A budding pop star looks to be the latest addition to YMCMB as teen sensation Austin Mahone has aligned with the home of Lil’ Wayne, Nicki Minaj, Drake, Tyga and others. The 17-year-old singer/dancer from San Antonio, Texas made a name through YouTube videos, which landed him a deal with Universal Republic. Birdman and DJ Khaled tweeted on Thursday night, confirming some form of partnership with Mahone’s Chase Records.

Dubbed by many as the next Justin Bieber, Mahone was an opening act on Taylor Swift’s RED tour and dubbed by MTV as an artist to watch in 2013. More recently, Mahone performed his current single “What About Love” during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards pre-show. His debut album Junior Year is scheduled to arrive this fall. Looks like that collaboration with his favorite artist may happen after all.

Designer Fashion Transformed Into Grotesque Consumerism Critique

The artwork Andrea Hasler if nothing else is a critique of consumerism. Her Burdens of Excess series resemble the strange blend of designer fashion and a slaughterhouse. Fleshy blobs bulge between straps and buttons nearly turning the high fashion accessories into bizarre creatures. Zippers and stitching even begin to seem like biological features. Still, our “natural” biological sides as human is a jarring contrast to ideas as contrived as fashion, luxury, even money.

The press release from her recent show at Gusford Gallery in Los Angeles states:

“Hasler’s work focuses on constructions of identity and collective desires, and is characterized by a tension between attraction and repulsion. The works in the Desire series, in particular, focus on the obsession of projections of affluence and glamor. Reworking designer bags, shoes, and accessories into organ-resemblant sculptures, Hasler’s works engage with the psychological aspects of consumerism, blurring the lines between what you are and what you must have.

Through the transformation of GUSFORD’s Melrose Avenue gallery space into an indulgent, glamorous shop, Hasler’s installation embodies the epitome of luxurious excess, and looks to a dystopic future, where branded organs may one day be the ultimate fashion accessory.”

Rachel McAdams & Family Help Habitat For Humanity

Sandra (mom), Rachel, Kayleen (sister), and Lance (dad)

One of the more famous natives of St. Thomas returned home to help build a house for a family in need.

Actress Rachel McAdams was in St. Thomas on Thursday, helping Habitat For Humanity crews build a house at 8 Westlake Drive.

“We are so grateful to Rachel and her family for spending some time working with us today,” said Jeff Duncan, CEO of Habitat for Humanity Oxford Middlesex Elgin. “Raising awareness about the issue of affordable housing in our community and that Habitat offers a sustainable solution to help families is really important. As well fundraising to construct the homes is always a challenge, so having Rachel’s support as we start our first project in St. Thomas means a great deal to us, the volunteers and our partner family.”

McAdams and her family were on the build site Thursday afternoon, and met with the recipients of the house, the Doucet family.

“Habitat for Humanity is a tremendous organization and I’m honored to support their efforts in my community,” said McAdams. “There’s something so profoundly beautiful about building a home from the ground up. It’s about more than doors and windows and paint. It’s about family, future, and building the foundation for lasting memories.”

This is the first build in St. Thomas and second in Elgin County for Habitat for Humanity. Habitat plans to begin construction on five homes in the region this year.

Taylor Swift's new song "Sweeter Than Fiction" to be released next week

Taylor Swift has co-written a song, "Sweeter Than Fiction", with Fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff.

The "poppy" song was penned for the soundtrack of One Chance, starring Julie Walters and James Corden. The upcoming movie, helmed by The Devil Wears Prada director David Frankel, follows Paul Pott's journey from Welsh steel mill worker to famed opera singer after an appearance on Britain's Got Talent.

The film has drawn comparisons to The Full Monty and Billy Elliot. "This is not a bullshit fairy tale," says film producer Harvey Weinstein. "It's gritty, a great cast, it's grounded."

Weinstein has credited Simon Cowell for getting Swift involved in the soundtrack: "Simon knows her through the One Direction connection and he thought she'd be touched by the film, and he was right because she was."

Swift is expected to unveil the song at the movie's premiere during the Toronto International Film Festival next Friday.

The singer is no stranger to the world of movie soundtracks, having previously written songs for Hannah Montana: The Movie, Valentine's Day and The Hunger Games.

Karolina Kurkova is leaving Naomi Campbell's 'The Face' after a single season

Things aren't looking good for Naomi Campbell's "The Face."

After a single season, Karolina Kurkova, one of the three hosts, is reportedly leaving the show. According to Page Six, the model has too many work commitments to sign on for another season of the Oxygen reality series. "She appreciates everything the show did for her. She had a great experience and wishes them well," a rep for Kurkova told Page Six.

"The Face" premiered last February to relatively positive reviews -- with an all-star cast like Cambell, Kurkova, Coco Rocha and Nigel Barker, we had a good feeling the competition would deliver. Alas, it looks like Campbell will have to scramble for a third leggy host in time for the imminent second season filming. (Our vote is for newly-engaged model Behati Prinsloo, FWIW.)

Dunkin’ Donuts criticized for ‘bizarre and racist’ ad campaign in Thailand

A leading human rights group has called on Dunkin' Donuts to withdraw a "bizarre and racist" advertisement for chocolate doughnuts in Thailand that shows a smiling woman with bright pink lips in blackface makeup.

The Dunkin' Donuts franchise in Thailand launched a campaign earlier this month for its new "Charcoal Donut" featuring the image, which is reminiscent of 19th and early 20th century American stereotypes for black people that are now considered offensive symbols of a racist era.

In posters and TV commercials, the campaign shows the woman with a shiny jet black, 1950s-style beehive hairdo holding a bitten black doughnut alongside the slogan: "Break every rule of deliciousness."

Human Rights Watch said it was shocked to see an American brand name running an advertising campaign that would draw "howls of outrage" if released in the United States.

"It's both bizarre and racist that Dunkin' Donuts thinks that it must color a woman's skin black and accentuate her lips with bright pink lipstick to sell a chocolate doughnut," said Phil Robertson, the deputy Asia director for Human Rights Watch. "Dunkin' Donuts should immediately withdraw this ad, publicly apologize to those it's offended and ensure this never happens again."

Sean Kingston Sued For Alleged Gang Rape

Sean Kingston and his bodyguard gang raped a drunk teenager in the singer's hotel room back in 2010, according to a new lawsuit -- but Sean says it's B.S.

Carissa Capeloto -- now 22 -- claims she was forced to have sex with Sean, his bodyguard and a member of Sean's band at a Seattle hotel in July, 2010, after she had smoked pot and downed 7-10 shots of vodka.

Capeloto -- who has sued all 3 men -- alleges she'd been invited to Kingston's hotel room for a meet-and-greet following a Bieber concert -- where Kingston had also performed -- but when she showed up ... Kingston was waiting naked on his bed.

Capeloto claims the bodyguard picked her up and placed her on top of Kingston, and all three of the men proceeded to gang rape her while she was "obviously intoxicated, incapable of consent."

Capeloto says her friend later entered the room and rescued her. The police were called and Capeloto was taken to the hospital where she says she was treated for physical injuries consistent with rape.

She says her life has been ruined ... she can barely sleep, has mood swings and panic attacks. Capeloto wants $5 mil minimum.

BTW ... criminal charges against Kingston were dropped in 2010 after cops concluded Capeloto wasn't credible enough for a legit case.

Kingston has filed legal docs insisting the sex was 100% consensual.

Trial is set for November.

think this is the same/follow up case as this post from 3 years ago.

Orphan Black's Tatiana Maslany Teases Season 2, Discusses Emmy Snub


After only 10 episodes, Orphan Black made quite an impression on viewers, which makes the eight-month wait for Season 2 that much more difficult.

Over the course of its first season, Orphan Black weaved a tale of mystery and intrigue as to why a group of clones — all played brilliantly by Tatiana Maslany — came into existence and who is pulling the strings. Ultimately, Cosima's digging uncovered that each clone was actually trademarked, making them intellectual property of the Neolutionists with no control over their own lives.

Suffice it to say, the question of freedom will be raised in the upcoming second season, which goes back into production at the end of September. caught up with Maslany on the set of Parks and Recreation — where she'll appear as a love interest for Aziz Ansari's Tom — to get the scoop on what's in store for each of the clones, including poor Alison, who inadvertently signed her life away in the finale. The 27-year-old actress also discusses the pressure she feels going into Season 2 and being overlooked by the Emmys.

The 12 Most Pointless X-Men

All men are created equal, but all X-Men aren’t. For every Wolverine, there are countless lame characters — lame not necessarily because their powers are useless, but because the character themselves are useless. Comic writers can’t use them, so they disappear, die, or constantly change in an unending bid to somehow become relevant. Here are a dozen X-Men whose main power was wasting everybody's time.

A month after giving birth and Kate Middleton is already out at a marathon.

OK, she's not so superhuman that she's running the actual marathon (although sometimes we wonder...). The Duchess of Cambridge appeared alongside Prince William at her first formal post-baby appearance to kick off the Ring O' Fire ultra marathon in Anglesey.

Kate and Will showed up on a gloomy Friday morning to greet runners about to embark on the 131-mile, 3-day race, which circles the Isle of Anglesey in North Wales (where Kate and Will have been living while Will fulfills his RAF duties, which are due to end next month).

Kate's presence at the race came as a total surprise -- the new mum wasn't slated to make any formal appearances until September 12, when she and William will be honored at the Tusk Conservation Awards.

Bret Easton Ellis 'confused' by level of hatred for The Canyons

Bret Easton Ellis has told The Hollywood Reporter he was left "confused" by the level of hatred unleashed by critics of The Canyons, the Lindsay Lohan-starring "modern day film noir" he wrote for director Paul Schrader.

Schrader's film, which also features porn star James Deen in a leading role, was turned down by both Sundance and SXSW film festivals and widely rubbished by reviewers upon its eventual low-key release in one New York cinema and via on-demand. It currently maintains a paltry 23% rating on the review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes. Ellis, writer of the novels American Psycho and Less Than Zero, said he was surprised by the "the loudness of the dislike" for the film, but did not regret its controversial castings.

The Alcohol Brands That Get the Most Play in Hip-Hop, Pop and Country Music

“They try to shut us down, so buy another round” croons hip-hop-cum-pop star B.o.B in his Gold-certified single, “We Still in this B****.” But another round of what, precisely? According to a new study, it’s probably a round of Patron tequila, Hennessy cognac, Grey Goose vodka or Jack Daniel’s whiskey — brands that have become synonymous — just like Lamborghinis, G5′s and Gucci bandanas — with the glamorous lives of the artists at the top of the charts.

Researchers at the Boston University School of Public Health and the Center on Alcohol Marketing and Youth at the Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health examined the songs listed on Billboard Magazine’s most popular song lists from 2009-2011. Sorting them into four genres — urban, rock, pop and country — they analyzed the lyrics to more than 700 chart-topping songs.

Not surprisingly, 167 (23%) mentioned alcohol, and 46 of them even referenced a specific brand of liquor. Half of these “shout-outs” dropped Patron, Hennessy, Grey Goose and Jack Daniel’s by name.

In rap, hip-hop and R&B music, nearly 38% of the tracks mentioned alcohol in some way; 21.8% of country songs and 14.9% of pop hits also explicitly referred to alcohol in their lyrics. Most common were references to tequila, vodka, cognac and champagne in hip-hop, rap and R&B, whereas country and pop music seemed to prefer whiskey and beer. Interestingly, researchers found no references to alcohol in the rock music at the top of the charts.

The 2009 hit track Shots, by electronic/dance group LMFAO, could be considered the perfect storm, referencing alcohol (by brand or otherwise) 89 times in 4 minutes, 14 seconds — that’s one reference for every 2.85 seconds of music.
