Skunk Anansie go acoustic

Skunk Anansie have released a clip from their upcoming live DVD – view their acoustic performance of Hedonism below.
It's taken from An Acoustic Skunk Anansie: Live In London, which was recorded at the Cadogan Hall in front of 900 fans.
Vocalist Skin recently said: "When you strip everything back a lot of the beauty, vulnerability and menace of the songs shines through in totally new ways. The nuances of the writing really comes through.
"People were really listening, concentrating, instead of jumping up and down as is the norm. At some points it must have been as if they were hearing the band for the first time."
An Acoustic Skunk Anansie: Live In London drops on September 23.

Ally Carter wants you to see City of Bones because it's sexist not to

Ally Carter is continuing in Cassandra Clare and Sarah Rees Brennan's footsteps of appropriating sexism whenever it suits them. Apparently the fate of all female-led adaptations rests on The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones' shoulders, and the reason why critics are trashing the movie is because Clary is a girl and not because the movie is bad.

I'm guessing this blind hatred of female protagonists is the reason why a majority of critics on Rotten Tomatoes found The Hunger Games to be fresh, or why RT's critics were almost evenly divided on Twilight.

Yeah...that makes sense...

Cassandra Clare desperately wants to remind you of her lack of control over the City of Bones movie

Cassandra Clare has made a post on her tumblr regarding her involvement with the The Mortal Instruments movie:

I did want to add — I have of course been receiving a ton of messages about the movie: from people who loved it, people who hated it, people who are mad at me for changes made in the adaptation from book to movie, people who want me to give them Jamie Campbell Bower’s phone number immediately or they will be mad at me… It’s a little overwhelming, but I will just say:

Lamar and Khloe drama update

Lamar Odom Taxis Around After DUI Bust
Lamar Odom was seen for the first time since his DUI arrest (barely) ... getting around the only way he can now ... IN A TAXI.

TMZ broke the story ... Lamar was popped for a DUI in L.A. early Friday morning after cops believed he was driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Lamar refused all chemical tests and as a result his driver's license was suspended for year.

As for where he was headed ... the agency who took the photos claims they were snapped outside the gated community where Khloe and Lamar's house is. But frankly, it's hard to tell.

Update - 1:00 PM PST -- Khloe was just photographed driving into the gated community moments after Lamar.

JT: 'N SYNC are better than One Direction

Justin Timberlake has claimed that *NSYNC are better than One Direction.

The 'Mirrors' singer explained that his recent reunion with his *NSYNC bandmates reminded him of their past.

He told The Breakfast Club: "It was kinda like old times, but we were moving a lot slower."

Asked about One Direction, Timberlake said: "I have not seen them on stage, but I'd be willing to say that we're better than them.

"But I don't feel like I'm laying down any gauntlet. I've seen them a couple times and I like those guys. It's interesting to see this whole wave of that come back around."

The 20/20 Experience star won four awards at last weekend's 2013 MTV Video Music Awards, including the 'Michael Jackson Video Vanguard Award' for his contribution to music.

He reunited with his former bandmates for a brief performance of their hits 'Girlfriend' and 'Bye Bye Bye'.

He will release his new album The 20/20 Experience - 2 of 2 on September 30 in the UK and October 1 in the US.

Future Oscar Winner "12 Years A Slave" Gets Rave Reviews Just Like Future Oscar Winner, "Gravity"

Steve McQueen’s “12 Years a Slave” instantly establishes itself as the most unflinching of all slave dramas, which is to say, there is plenty of flinching, not to mention cowering and recoiling and passing out, thanks to beatings and whippings that arrive at roughly 10-to-15-minute intervals throughout a 133-minute running time. “Amistad,” meet the Marquis de Sade, in the form of slavemaster Michael Fassbender, who puts his victims through more tortures than Mel Gibson ever could have imagined for Jesus.

This revolving door of graphically rendered brutalities might feel like its own punishment if not for an array of astonishing performances that’s practically a one-stop Oscar-nomination shopping spree. At the film’s world premiere in Telluride Friday night, it quickly became apparent that leading man Chiwetel Ejiofor had moved to the head of the line of best actor candidates, with Fassbender and newcomer Lupita Nyong'o sure to contend in the supporting categories. Even those of us who aren’t Oscar bloggers should break out whatever mnemonic devices we need to immediately commit Ejiofor’s and Nyong'o’s names to the tips of our tongues.

Jamie Oliver Should Stop Trying to Teach Poor People How to Eat

This week, Jamie Oliver is promoting a new television show called Jamie’s Money Saving Meals and a new cookbook called Save With Jamie in the U.K.

You might think this would be a cakewalk for him: After all, the 38-year-old celebrity chef has published 17 previous cookbooks and hosted 25 previous TV shows and specials, many of which have focused on eating well on a budget. But something went terribly wrong during this week’s publicity blitz: Oliver suddenly began insulting the very people he was trying to market his new products to, and once he started saying condescending things he couldn't stop.

First, in an interview with the Radio Times, Oliver derided the poor for watching TV and eating fast food instead of cooking healthy meals for themselves. “I'm not judgmental, but,” he began—a phrase which, like “I’m not a racist, but” or “I’m not homophobic, but” is a surefire indication that the clause to follow will prove the first clause false. This was certainly true in Oliver’s case; he went on to say:

I've spent a lot of time in poor communities, and I find it quite hard to talk about modern-day poverty. You might remember that scene in [Oliver’s previous TV series] Ministry of Food, with the mum and the kid eating chips and cheese out of Styrofoam containers, and behind them is a massive fucking TV. It just didn't weigh up. …

I meet people who say, “You don't understand what it's like.” I just want to hug them and teleport them to the Sicilian street cleaner who has 25 mussels, 10 cherry tomatoes, and a packet of spaghetti for 60 pence, and knocks out the most amazing pasta. You go to Italy or Spain and they eat well on not much money. We've missed out on that in Britain, somehow.

Oliver seemed to be referring to an antiquated, romanticized notion of Italian dietary habits: A study of young Italians’ eating habits in next month’s edition of the academic journal Appetite notes “a decline … among the young ‘traditionals’ who stand out for their high consumptions of fruit, vegetables and fish,” and a couple of years ago NPR explained Italians’ abandonment of traditional fare by noting wryly that these days, “you have to be wealthier to eat like a poor Mediterranean peasant.” In any case, British commentators seized not on Oliver’s outdated view of Italian eating but on his implication that Britain’s poor are too stupid, lazy, or hedonistic to value healthy eating over entertainment.

McDonald’s Unveils New Vegetarian Wraps in Canada

 photo mcdsvegwrap1-592x370_zpse268bed5.jpg

With plant-based eating on the rise, McDonald’s is trying to cash in with two new vegetarian wraps, now hitting their restaurants in Canada. This is the first time in a decade that the chain eatery is attempting a vegetarian-focused product. Rather than resurrect the veggie burger (which McDonald’s say did not sell well all those years ago), they’re trying something new: a Santa Fe Veggie wrap and a Mediterranean Veggie wrap.

Let’s look at what’s stuffed in the wraps:

Santa Fe Veggie wrap: fire-roasted corn, black beans, a blend of cheddar and Monterey Jack, tomatoes, red onions, lettuce and tortilla chips, along with a chili-lime glaze and southwest sauce.

Mediterranean Veggie wrap: garlic hummus, feta cheese, tomatoes, cucumbers, red onions, lettuce, crispy onions and a creamy Mediterranean sauce.

While this certainly looks like a colorful and kinder choice over a Big Mac, the nutritional info of the wraps are almost as bad as that big burger. The Santa Fe Veggie wrap contains 490 calories, 24 grams of fat, and 980 grams of sodium. Let’s compare that to a Big Mac, which brings in 540 calories, 29 grams of fat, and 1,020 grams of sodium. While omitting the cheese and dairy sauces will no doubt bring those numbers down, this is an example of using moderation with these foods. Not that anyone looks to McDonald’s for healthy or cruelty-free fare.

The announcement said that both deaths had appeared to involve the drug MDMA, also known as ecstasy or molly, though the causes of death had not been officially determined.

Miley Cyrus: 'I'm Messed Up'

Miley Cyrus says she is "messed up".

The 'We Can't Stop' hitmaker - who recently shocked fans with her racy performance at the MTV Video Music Awards last weekend - admitted she has "issues" and struggles taking much-needed breaks from work.

Speaking to the Sunday People newspaper, she said: "I'm messed up ... I have so many f***ing issues.

"I am so f***ed up - everyone does dumb stuff when they are messed up.

"I don't have a normal life. I take a hiatus every now and again but I'm not good at that."

The 20-year-old star rose to fame with the lead role in 'Hannah Montana' - but she claimed she was never like the clean-cut character she portrayed on the Disney Channel show.

She explained: "During 'Hannah Montana' I think people knew I was acting. I've never been able to hide anything, a bit like Justin Bieber.

"Others who have been on kids' shows try to act like their characters - but I'm not like that.

"I never pretended I was as good as the Disney Channel writes ... You will be amazed at some of the notes I got ... It's crazy. But they can't make ­people not grow up."

LewCole Is Officially Over

The X Factor judge admitted: ‘The truth is we’re no longer together. It is over.’

Formula 1 driver Lewis Hamilton has made no secret of his desire to be reunited with the 35-year-old; he even dedicated his Hungarian Grand Prix win to her last month, which Nicole said was ‘sweet of him’.

She added: ‘I don’t like to take credit for things. I like to stay in the background but it’s nice to be acknowledged and to know that someone realises the support that they had.’ But Scherzinger admits his public gestures aren’t enough to win her back just yet.

‘I know he’s been very public about trying to get me back, but we’re still not together,’ adding: ‘I don’t know what the future holds to be honest, but as it stands we’re not together’.

Speaking after his Hungarian GP win Lewis, 28, said: ‘I feel like, the thought on my mind through the entire race was of someone really special to me. And I want to dedicate it to her’.

The couple split in July this year after five years together blaming both their busy schedules.

Glee's Kevin McHale Talks 'Powerful, Emotional' Finn Tribute, Previews That 'One Scene'

Just a few days into production on Glee‘s Finn Hudson tribute, co-star Kevin McHale describes an “extremely emotional” shoot that, at times, has been “hard to get through.”

Acknowledging that there’s essentially “no ‘right’ way to do it,” the McKinley vet says he was blown away when he first read the script for the episode, which is slated to air on Oct. 10.

“There are so many incredibly well written and powerful scenes,” he shares, before singling out one sequence as being particularly moving. “When [the cast] got the script, we were all reading it together and we were like, ‘Did you get to that one scene.’ And when you see it everyone will know what that one scene is.”

McHale says reactions to Finn’s death will be both varied and surprising, noting that some castmembers “are having to play reactions that they obviously would not feel in real-life, and that’s a weird thing to play. Because you want people to know how you actually feel. But [Ryan Murphy & Co. are staying true to] the characters, and that’s the smart thing to do.”

For example, several characters find themselves in a deep state of denial. “Some people aren’t dealing with the loss of Finn, and it’s a difficult thing because in real life none of us were like that,” he explains. “We were all very much dealing with it.”

The two began a conversation and friendship which resulted in Drummond sending McCurdy some Detroit Pistons gear.

Big Ron: 'I don't care if people think I'm racist'

In his first newspaper interview since leaving the house, the former manager dismissed the fallout over his comment as “something out of nothing” and even hinted of a return to commentating. Ron was branded a racist in 2004 for calling Chelsea player Marcel Desailly, now 44, a “n****r” live on air.

He told the Daily Star ­Sunday: “I am what I am.

“Whether or not people think I’m racist has never been an issue that bothers me.

“I know people might think that’s strange. I don’t feel I have to justify myself in that respect and I didn’t go on the show for that reason.

“People that know me know I haven’t got a problem.

“I’ve lived my life for the past nine years, I haven’t been hiding under a bushel. I’ve had a decent time.”

Sean Kingston Settles Gang Rape Lawsuit. Concert Cancelled In Canada.

Sean Kingston has settled up with the 22-year-old girl who accused the singer and his former bodyguards of gang rape back in 2010. Kingston is said to have settled NOT because he's admitting guilt, but because his upcoming tour and new album release will prevent him from focusing his energies on a messy civil trial.

Our sources close to Kingston's team say he paid the alleged victim only a fraction of what she asked for in order to make the lawsuit disappear as soon as possible. They didn't tell us the exact amount of the settlement. That said, we're told Kingston believes he would have won the case outright if it went to trial, the same way he dodged criminal charges three years ago.

As one source said, "Her story wasn't consistent. She told various stories throughout her interviews with police. Her friend's story wasn't consistent with hers. The medical report had no indications of force." 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 also states that she was taken to the hospital by the police and was treated for physical injuries consistent with rape.

As we reported, Kingston acknowledged having sex with the 19 year old but said the sex was consensual. The lawsuit is expected to be dismissed shortly.

Should older women who fancy Harry Styles be seen as 'pervs'?


One of the hit books of the summer tells the controversial story of a female teacher who loves seducing young teenage boys. While any breach of the teacher-pupil relationship is unacceptable, Rebecca Holman questions why we view teenage girls as more vulnerable than teenage boys:

I spent most of my recent holiday badgering my two friends to read Tampa, the debut novel by Alissa Nutting. I’d just finished it, and like all good books, I needed to dissect every element, character and plot point before I could move on, like the end of a particularly baffling relationship.

The book is written from the point of view of Celeste, an attractive 26-year-old woman who trains to become a teacher, and takes a post at a high school for the sole purpose of fulfilling her insatiable sexual desire for young teenage boys. As a character she is entirely driven by lust, shows no remorse for her actions, gives no excuse or explanation for her sexual preferences. She doesn’t feel the need to justify it because for her, that’s all there is. Her desire is everything.
