Ex-Disney Superstar: Death Certificate Released

Former Disney star Lee Thompson Young died from a self-inflicted gunshot wound to the head ... this according to the actor's official death certificate obtained by TMZ.

We broke the story ... Young's body was discovered at his North Hollywood apartment on August 19th, after he failed to show up to the set of his TNT drama "Rizzoli and Isles."

According to the death certificate, Young used a handgun to take his own life.

Young -- who rocketed to stardom back in 1998 as the title character in the Disney show "The Famous Jett Jackson" -- didn't leave a suicide note.

Young's friends and family are still struggling to understand why the actor shot himself -- though some of his family members told law enforcement he suffered from "depression issues."

Young was 29.

David Tennant and Rupert Grint's animated movie pushed back

The Postman Pat animated movie, which includes David Tennant among its voice cast, has been pushed back to a 2014 release.

Both the UK Film Distributors Association website and the cinema advertisers' site DCM have now confirmed the release date as Friday 23rd May 2014. Previously DCM posted a date of 25th December 2013.
Postman Pat: The Movie – You Know You’re The One brings the classic kids' TV character for the first time to the big screen in a 3D spectacular with an all-star cast as Pat ventures into the world of TV talent shows. It features the voices of Stephen Mangan as Pat and Kate Winslet as Pat’s wife with David Tennant, Rupert Grint and Jim Broadbent. Take That star Gary Barlow will provide Pat's singing voice. David stated in a BBC Radio 5 interview last year that his character is a new one, and it is believed that he may play a Simon Cowell-type character, while Rupert Grint is a member of a competing boy band. And, of course, Jess the Cat will be on hand too.
The film is written by Nicole Dubuc, Kim Fuller and Annika Bluhm and directed by Mike Disa. It is being  animated by Jordan-based company Rubicon, who have said that they are now coming close to completing their work.

The Mortal Instruments tops Hunger Games on the NYT best seller list because of the flop movie

makes benedict cumberbatch look like a physical manifestation of dorian gray

Suzanne Collins post-apocalyptic novels, "The Hunger Games" catapulted to the top of the best-selling list following the release of the film adaptation. Surprisingly, Cassandra Clare's novels, "The Mortal Instruments" followed the same fate after the release of the film adaptation starring Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower. In fact, "The Mortal Instruments" has even managed to top "Hunger Games" off the New York Times best-sellers.

Right after the nationwide release of "The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones" on Aug. 21, kids of all ages had immediately flocked to the nearest book store to get their hands on Cassandra Clare's novels. "The Mortal Instruments" is a series of six books that is much like "Harry Potter" with a world hidden from our own. It's not surprising that Clare's novels has managed to top "Hunger Games" books written by Suzanne Collins on the New York Times best-seller list.

How J. Lo’s New $17.5 Million "Idol" Contract Compares To Other Reality Judges’

The worst kept secret in Hollywood came out today — Jennifer Lopez will be back on American Idol for the Fox reality show’s upcoming 13th season. Joined by Harry Connick Jr. and fellow alumni Keith Urban, J. Lo will return to the panel she called home for Seasons 10 and 11… for a mere $17.5 million. But don’t be fooled by the rocks that she’s got. J. Lo’s new salary still pales in comparison to some recent/current reality TV judges, as per the ranking below.

18. Kelly Rowland: $1 Million For The X Factor (Season 3)

17. Paulina Rubio: $1.5 Million For The X Factor (Season 3)

16. Nicole Scherzinger: $1.5 Million For The X Factor (Season 1)

14. Paula Abdul: $2.5 Million For The X Factor (Season 1)

13. Keith Urban: $5 Million For American Idol (Season 13)

Homophobia On ‘The Haves and the Have Nots’ + Season Finale

Black Gay Men Are Treated Poorly On OWN's Soap Opera Hit

haves wyatt jeff4

Tyler Perry is riding high off of the success of his latest hit TV series, "The Haves And The Have Nots". The soap opera has been a home-run with Perry’s core audience, netting a total of 2 million viewers to become OWN’s highest-rated show to date.
Sticking to his usual formula of mass stereotyping, Perry covers all of his bases. Bourgie Black folk? Check. Hardworking, southern church woman? Check. Privileged Whites? You got it. (There’s even an Hispanic maid.) But this time, there's one group Perry threw into the mix that I never thought he'd give the time of day to: gay men. Aside from longstanding rumors about Perry’s own sexual preference, it’s surprising that he would address homosexuality at all, considering his fan base is predominantly Black Christian women.
In "The Haves And The Have Nots," Perry doesn’t just address it, he goes there. His character, Jeffrey, is a gay Black man who comes from a very wealthy family and is also trapped in the closet, R. Kelly-style. While being in the closet is a very real experience for many same-gender-loving people, particularly Black men, it didn’t quite sit well with me upon first watching the show, because I suspected Perry would more than likely take the opportunity to do what he does best: drench his character in so many stereotypes that it would turn into a television hate-fest. And that it did.

Did you watch the finale? Do you think the show has turned Jeffrey into a negative stereotype?

'Summer Heights High' characters may return in new Chris Lilley series

Australian comic Chris Lilley has confirmed that one of his classic characters will be returning for his new comedy series later this year.

Lilley announced on his Twitter and Facebook pages today (September 4) that at least one familiar face from his former shows would be appearing in his latest project and encouraged fans to vote on who they think will be returning.

Lilley, whose hit shows include Summer Heights High, We Can Be Heroes and Angry Boys, started shooting a new mockumentary-style show for ABC in Australia earlier this year. Like his previous series, it is expected to air on BBC Three in the UK.

Characters potentially making a comeback include Summer Heights High trio Jonah, Mr G and Ja'mie, Angry Boys characters S.mouse, Gran and Daniel and Nathan Sims and We Can Be Heroes character Phil Olivetti.

Speaking to Digital Spy about his new show last year, Lilley said: "I'm well under way with a new project and I'm keeping it a bit of a secret and under wraps for now. It's along the same lines as my other shows, it's a mockumentary style and I'll play the characters.

"I want to keep as much of the show as possible a secret, but if you've loved my last three shows, this is part four."

Jack Nicholson Retires


He’ll still sit court side at Los Angeles Lakers’ games, but Hollywood legend Jack Nicholson has quietly retired from the movie business, has exclusively learned.

The 76-year-old icon has no plans to appear in films again after a career spanning five decades.

“Jack has — without fanfare — retired,” a well-placed Hollywood film insider confirmed to Radar.

“There is a simple reason behind his decision — it’s memory loss. Quite frankly, at 76, Jack has memory issues and can no longer remember the lines being asked of him.

“His memory isn’t what it used to be.”

'Horrible Bosses 2' Taps 'We're the Millers' Writers to Direct

Sean Anders and John Morris, hot off of penning New Line’s surprise comedy hit We’re the Millers, have been tapped by the company to tackle its comedy Horrible Bosses 2. Anders will direct while Morris will join the project as a executive producer.

New Line was forced to conduct a director derby when Seth Gordon, who directed the 2011 original, fell out in early August due to scheduling conflicts.
Anders and Morris were in contention with such names as Greg Daniels, Etan Cohen, Todd Strauss-Schulson, according to sources.

Jason Bateman, Jason Sudeikis and Charlie Day are set to reprise their roles in the workplace comedy as is Jamie Foxx.

John Francis Daley and Jonathan Goldstein, who worked on the first movie, penned the original draft for the sequel. Anders and Morris recently did a rewrite. (The duo are clearly popular at New Line as they also penned a draft of Mean Moms, based on the book Queen Bee Moms & Kingpin Dads.)
Brett Ratner and Jay Stern are producing while John Cheng, John Rickard and Diana Pokorny are executive producing. Mary Rohlich will co-produce.

Anders directed Sex Drive and That’s My Boy, the latter starring Adam Sandler and Andy Samberg. The duo are known for their comedy-writing work on She’s Out of My League and Hot Tub Time Machine. They also worked on Dumber and Dumber To, the upcoming sequel to the Jim Carrey-Jeff Daniels classic Dumber and Dumber.

Millers has grossed over $113 million, a nice chunk of change considering it only cost in the mid-$30 million range to produce.

Our Current Pope Is Going To Get A Biopic, ONTD...

We’ve all been fascinated by the newest leader of the Catholic Church and with good reason: Pope Francis I blesses motorcycles, performs accidental exorcisms, washes women’s feet, and is doing it all with only one lung. The man born Jorge Mario Bergoglio is so exceptional in fact that it was only a matter of time before the film industry got interested. And that time is now: It was announced Sunday at the Venice Film Festival that Argentinian director Alejandro Agresti (The Lake House) will take on the biopic Historia de un cura (A Priest’s Tale), which focuses on the life of Pope Francis from his childhood in Buenos Aires through the election that made him head of the Catholic Church. Rodrigo de la Serna (The Motorcycle Diaries) will play the pontificate.

Agresti told Variety: “More than a rapid biopic of key events, I’m more concerned with getting inside this very singular person, his decision to follow his vocation, and how he combined his faith and reason, having studied as a Jesuit for 14 years before being ordained.” He added the film will “focus on Bergoglio as a person” and be “an origins story told in flashbacks and flash-forwards as Bergoglio flies to Rome and attends the papal conclave after the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI.”

Producer Pablo Bossi said the film will shoot in Argentina, Italy, and Germany and require an "above-average" budget. Those fancy white hats aren't cheap.


Wow, first that "Noah" movie by Darren Aronofsky, then there's "Exodus" with Christian Bale, and now a biopic of the Pope. Hollywood's going biblical next year? Okay, then.

IndieWire Playlist's Most Anticipated Films To See At The 2013 Toronto International Film Festival

While there might be some overlap with Venice and a little stolen thunder (at least for hardcore cinephiles) thanks to Telluride, that doesn’t make the TIFF lineup this year any less spectacular. In fact this year's slate — that runs as deep as it does long — works more than ever to make those other festivals, impressive though they may individually be, feel a little like the throat-clearings before the main event. Boasting a staggering array of splashy premieres, the latest from a barrage of auteurs and a host of indie efforts that have hitherto flown below the radar but that could surprise in a big way, it feels like the TIFF 2013 program may be their most packed ever (though we seem to say that every year). So whilst our attendees face the unenviable (but actually extremely enviable) task of working out their schedules, we've dug through the near and far corners of this embarrassment of riches to highlight the 15 films we're most anticipating from this year's Toronto International Film Festival. It wasn't an easy choice.

To make it slightly more manageable, however, we’ve excluded several films because we've already seen them very recently in either Venice or Telluride. And there is also a clutch of Cannes or Sundance titles that we caught earlier in the year and so won't feature here. But despite all these exclusions, TIFF 2013 still gave us a run for our money in narrowing the field of our most anticipated down to 15, but we did it, and here they are.

James Cameron Calls 'Gravity' the "Best Space Film Ever"!


James Cameron, director of sci-fi classics such as The Terminator, T2 and Aliens, is calling Alfonso Cuarón’s Gravity, starring Sandra Bullock and George Clooney, the best space film ever done. Those are big words from a man who not only changed the course of sci-fi filmmaking, but also has two of the highest grossing movies of all-time.

Warner Bros. is releasing Gravity on October 4, a bit premature for Oscar season, with serious buzz. The reviews out of Venice are staggering, providing evidence that the OMFG footage shown here wasn’t just a garage sale.

Now, Cameron is getting in on the hype, telling Variety that it’s something special, and the kind of film he personally has been waiting a long time for.
“I was stunned, absolutely floored,” he says. “I think it’s the best space photography ever done, I think it’s the best space film ever done, and it’s the movie I’ve been hungry to see for an awful long time.”

But what he boasts is Bullock’s performance, one that he says is more impressive than the film’s technology that supported it. “She’s the one that had to take on this unbelievable challenge to perform it. (It was) probably no less demanding than a Cirque du Soleil performer, from what I can see.” And of the result, he says, “There’s an art to that, to creating moments that seem spontaneous but are very highly rehearsed and choreographed. Not too many people can do it. … I think it’s really important for people in Hollywood to understand what was accomplished here.”

My reaction to the trailer. ONTD, you excited to see this?

Transformers 4 Poster Reveals Official Title Is Age of Extinction

Transformers 4 has an official title, and it is Transformers: Age of Extinction, as revealed on the first teaser poster, which includes the Decepticon insignia merged with a four, set against a desert landscape.

The Transformers: Age of Extinction title hints at many story possibilities.

It is known that this globetrotting adventure will feature Grimlock (Tyrannosaurus rex), Slag (Triceratops), Sludge (Apatosaurus), Snarl (Stegosaurus), Swoop (Pteranodon) and Paddles (Elasmosaurus) appearing alongside franchise newcomers Mark Wahlberg, Nicola Peltz, T.J. Miller and Sophia Myles.

Roar becomes Katy Perry's eighth No. 1

With the eye of the tiger, Katy Perry is the Billboard Hot 100's new champion, as "Roar" rises 2-1. The song – which becomes Perry's eighth Hot 100 No. 1 – stops the 12-week command of Robin Thicke's "Blurred Lines" (featuring T.I. and Pharrell). Meanwhile, Eminem blasts onto the chart at No. 3 with "Berzerk" and Lorde enters the top 10 with her debut alternative/pop hit "Royals."

Registering a 17% gain in overall Hot 100 chart points, "Roar" leads Digital Songs for a third week, selling 448,000 downloads for the week ending Sept. 1 (up 14%), according to Nielsen SoundScan, after Perry performed it the previous Sunday (Aug. 25) at the end of the MTV Video Music Awards. "Roar" also leads the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart, where it charges 4-1 with 2.1 million U.S. streams, up 33%, according to Nielsen BDS. It climbs 5-3 on the overall Streaming Songs survey (5.4 million, up 16%).

"Roar" claims the Hot 100's top Airplay Gainer award, bounding 11-6 on Radio Songs with a 27% spike to 97 million all-format audience impressions, according to BDS. It's Perry's 12th top 10 on the airplay tally.

"Roar" becomes Perry's eighth Hot 100 No. 1. She first led with "I Kissed a Girl," which began a seven-week command (her longest) the week of July 5, 2008. In that span, Perry has quickly scaled the list of the women with the most No. 1s in the chart's 55-year history. Among female soloists, only Mariah Carey (18), Madonna, Rihanna (12 each), Whitney Houston (11) and Janet Jackson (10) have totaled more leaders. Among all artists, Perry is one of just 16 acts with at least eight No. 1s; the Beatles lead with 20 Hot 100 toppers.

HuffPost Looks Back At The TIFF Sartorial Choices of Fierce Fashion Kween, Tilda Swinton

When Tilda Swinton first came to the Toronto International Film Festival to promote the movie "Teknolust" in 2002, we had no idea that the actress would begin a love affair with the city which would watch her debut her signature quirky and beautiful outfits.

The 52-year-old Brit posed for portraits with minimum makeup, her Miranda Hobbes red hair cut short and wearing a loose men's suit and tuxedo jacket, unlike most other actresses at TIFF.

From there, the "We Need To Talk About Kevin" star evolved from sporting a simple cardigan (2005) to a draped cowel neck dress (2007) and finally, a green silk bathrobe (2011).

Back in the city on Sept. 5 for the 2013 Toronto Film Festival (the "Orlando" star skipped the festival in 2012) to promote "Only Lovers Left Alive", the otherworldly beauty will most likely confound and astound us with her sartorial choices.

Ministry of Sound sues Spotify over Playlists...

Dance music brand Ministry of Sound is suing Spotify for copyright infringement, claiming the streaming music company has refused to delete users' playlists that copy its compilation albums.

Ministry of Sound launched proceedings in the UK High Court on Monday, and is seeking an injunction requiring Spotify to remove these playlists and to permanently block other playlists that copy its compilations. The company is also seeking damages and costs.

Chief executive Lohan Presencer claims that his company has been asking Spotify to remove the playlists – some of which include "Ministry of Sound" in their titles – since 2012

"It's been incredibly frustrating: we think it's been very clear what we're arguing, but there has been a brick wall from Spotify," said Presencer.

A Spotify spokesperson confirmed to the Guardian that it had received the lawsuit, but declined to comment further.

While Presencer is known to be no fan of Spotify according to industry sources, the lawsuit came as a surprise to the company. The Guardian understands that Spotify has held talks in the past with Ministry of Sound about licensing tracks from its label division, albeit without a deal being struck.

The case will hinge on whether compilation albums qualify for copyright protection due to the selection and arrangement involved in putting them together. Spotify has the rights to stream all the tracks on the playlists in question, but the issue here is whether the compilation structure - the order of the songs - can be copyrighted.

Similar arguments featured in a high-profile case in 2010, when the High Court ruled that the English and Scottish football leagues could protect their fixture lists on copyright grounds. However, this ruling was later overturned on appeal.

"What we do is a lot more than putting playlists together: a lot of research goes into creating our compilation albums, and the intellectual property involved in that. It's not appropriate for someone to just cut and paste them," said Presencer.

Playlists are an increasingly prominent feature on Spotify's service, which provides its users with a catalogue of more than 20m music tracks to stream.

Spotify's 24 million users have created more than 1bn playlists since its launch in 2008. In August, Spotify launched a new "Browse" feature to help people discover one another's playlists more easily.

"Everyone is talking about curation, but curation has been the cornerstone of our business for the last 20 years," said Presencer.

"If we don't step up and take some action against a service and users that are dismissing our curation skills as just a list, that opens up the floodgates to anybody who wants to copy what a curator is doing."

Charlie Hunnam Has Already Played the OTHER Role in Fifty Shades of Grey

Charlie Hunnam is hardly an unknown: The 33-year-old British actor stars in one of the biggest shows on cable, Sons of Anarchy, and he played the lead in this summer's $100 million-grossing sci-fi vehicle Pacific Rim. Still, yesterday's announcement that he'll play the dominant, damaged Christian Grey in the film adaptation of Fifty Shades of Grey means that Hunnam is about to become a lot more famous very quickly, since everyone and their mother had an opinion on who should be cast as Grey, a wealthy mogul who embarks on a sexy, sadomasochistic relationship with wide-eyed Anastasia Steele (to be played by Ben and Kate's Dakota Johnson). It also marks things coming full circle for the actor who, in his first big TV credit — the original U.K. version of Queer As Folk — played a tentative young student in the thrall of a highly sexual older man; essentially, that means that long before Hunnam will play Christian Grey, he's already embodied Anastasia Steele.

It Still Sounds Like Bon Iver Is Mostly Dead

Justin Vernon is busy with his slew of bands and his Kanye albums and all kinds of stuff, but it appears Bon Iver might be deader than a blade of Wisconsin grass beneath a crush of January snow. The ghost of Vernon's comment about feeling "the need to walk away from it while I still care about it" lingers, even a year since it was said. Now there's a little more clarity, and it's also kind of crappy.

"I don't really write songs anymore. The last Bon Iver record was a very 'sitting down with a guitar and writing' kind of record," Vernon tells Australia's Triple J. "I really have to be in a specific headspace to even begin to illuminate an idea that would create another Bon Iver record, and I'm just not there. I'm really honored that Bon Iver gives me a platform to do whatever I want, but there's only so much time you can spend digging through yourself before you become insular. I'm not in a hurry to go back to that temperature. All of the music I've been making shifting away from Bon Iver feels really good ... so if I ever do go back to Bon Iver it will be all the better for it."

Solace-seekers, promptly turn to "Re: Stacks" or this cool live piano version of "Beth/Rest." Those who can bear an unspecified amount of years unsure if Bon Iver shall ever rise again, by all means spin the suitably Iverish new Volcano Choir album, Repave!

'House of Versace' First Look: ♛ Gina Gershon ♛ Transforms Into Donatella Versace

The Lifetime biopic, co-starring Enrico Colantoni, Raquel Welch and Colm Feore, will air Oct. 5.

Gina Gershon is going all out to play Donatella Versace.

In a first look image from Lifetime's upcoming House of Versace original movie, the Killer Joe (and Bound) actress transforms into Donatella Versace.

The telepic is based on Wall Street Journal reporter Deborah Ball's book House of Versace: The Untold Story of Genius, Murder, and Survival and centers on Donatella (Gershon), who after her brother's slaying is thrust into the spotlight as head designer of his fashion empire. At first ridiculed by critics worldwide, Donatella falls victim to drug addiction and nearly bankrupts the company. With the help of her family, including daughter Allegra, Aunt Lucia (Raquel Welch) and brother Santo (Colm Feore), she enters rehab to confront her demons and soon comes back stronger than ever to reignite the beloved Versace brand with her own vision and builds one of the most powerful and influential fashion houses ever known.

The movie will premiere Saturday, Oct. 5 at 8 p.m. and be followed at 10 p.m. by the documentary Versace: Beyond the Headlines. The hourlong doc offers a look at Gianni Versace's start in the fashion business and his rise to oversee a multimillion-dollar empire that continues to thrive even after his death. The special will include interviews with those who knew him, as well as designers and a police detective and criminologist who offer their take on his 1997 slaying. The doc is produced by CBS EYE Productions.

Check out Gershon as Donatella (above) and hit the comments with your thoughts. Will you watch?

Why the next Lady Gaga single shouldn’t be the one she might want it to be

Fans can vote on the next Lady Gaga single!

Well, it’s not a very formal vote – she basically just told Nick Grimshaw that fans should bombard her label with requests based on the iTunes Festival performances “so we can put out the records that they [the fans] love”. She later told Capital that anybody wanting the a follow-up video to ‘Telephone’ should vote for ‘Aura’, which seems like a clear attempt to steer the bombarding in a certain direction.

‘Aura’ should not be the next Lady Gaga single.

basically: if aura was the new single, she'd be pandering to the fans when she should be focusing on the masses and release sex dreams

Great British Bake Off Episode 3 Review - aka custard scandal dun dun dun


“Slack” is one of the most glorious words in the English language. It can mean physically loose, like a badly anchored tent rope. It can be made plural for “slacks”, those most evocatively provincial of garments. And, when I was growing up in Leeds, it was a one-syllable insult encapsulating not only laziness at work, but dubious levels of sexual choosiness, too.

Now – thanks to judge Paul Hollywood on BBC Two’s The Great British Bake Off – it also applies, in a new and unique way, to custard. Tonight’s challenges, all on the broad topic of “desserts”, required two different kinds of custard. There was the lighter crème anglaise for the technical challenge of the île flottante – and then the thicker custard of the signature trifle.

Britney Silently Slaying Your Faves With Silent Marketing Strategy

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

In the past few weeks, we have lived for the applause, heard a woman roar, and listened to one of the great MCs go berzerk. It's been an exciting kick off to the fall music season; however, as these recording artists embark on promotion for their current singles and forthcoming album releases, one other act has taken a different marketing approach for her upcoming music. In the process, she has managed to command everyone's attention and get people talking -- or tweeting, as the case may be. The end result has been the eager anticipation of the return of Britney Spears to the realm of pop music.

How Mutya, Keisha and Siobhan – aka the Sugababes – became MKS

The Sugababes had instant success as one of Britain's most turbulent girl groups. Now Mutya, Keisha and Siobhán are back as MKS. Is it really all peace and love?
By: Tom Lamont

They don't like it when I call them the original Sugababes. "I hate that word, 'original'," says Mutya Buena.

"Hate it!" says Siobhán Donaghy, pulling in her shoulders.

"It makes us feel," says Keisha Buchanan, "150 years old."

Jared Harris lands lead role in "Poltergeist" remake

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

It's a busy week for former "Mad Men" star Jared Harris. Following word yesterday that he's signed on for Guy Ritchie's The Man from U.N.C.L.E., Deadline is reporting that Harris is set to play a leading role in MGM and Fox 2000's upcoming remake of Poltergeist opposite Rosemarie DeWitt and Sam Rockwell.

Gil Kenan (Monster House) is set to direct from a screenplay by Pulitzer Prize-winning writer David Lindsay-Abaire (whose recent credits includes Oz The Great and Powerful). The film is being produced by Sam Raimi (Evil Dead) and Rob Tapert (The Posession) via Ghost House Pictures, along with Roy Lee (The Strangers). Nathan Kahane (The Grudge) will serve as executive producer.

Poltergeist will be marketed and distributed worldwide by Twentieth Century Fox, with select international territories as well as international television distribution being handled by MGM. Fox will also handle home entertainment and domestic television.

In a revisionist take on the classic horror film, a family, the Bowens, are struggling to make ends meet and relocate to an outdated suburban home whereupon they are confronted by an angry spirit who kidnaps their youngest daughter and challenges them to band together to rescue her from the clutches of evil.

Harris, whose big screen work includes the recent Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows and Mortal Instruments: City of Bone will play Carrigan, the host of a cable program called "Haunted House Cleaners".


Everybody Hates Kris : Kris Jenner’s TV Crew ‘Happy Her Show Got Canceled’

While Kris Jenner may be disappointed her daytime talk show wasn’t picked up for another season — as exclusively reported last week — her crew couldn’t be happier!


A new report from Star claims Kris would show up the set hungover, was annoying to the staff and overall unbearable.

“We could not wait for the end of the show’s six-week trial period,” a member of Kris’ production team told Star.

“Working with Kris was absolutely unbearable. She would show up on set hung over and demand her beauty team to fix her up and make her look stunning.”

And even more, the crew member tells the magazine that staff got no “extras” like they usually do on other talk show sets — instead Kris would hoard them for her family.

“Kris would give goody bags to the audience, but instead of giving the crew some too, which is typical, she insisted that she take them home to her family. Talk about tacky!” the insider revealed.

“And at the wrap party, Kris gifted the crew with fleece blankets that looked like they came directly off an American Airlines plane — they didn’t even have the show’s logo embroidered on them!”

As Radar exclusively reported, Kris was told by FOX execs that her show would not be coming back for a second run.

“There is no chance the talk show is going to get a green light from FOX,” the insider told Radar.

“The ratings were averaging an abysmal 0.8 and advertisers were less than enthusiastic about it.”

Kris denied reports that her show was axed, tweeting, “Rumors flying are false but glad everyone is still buzzing about our 6 week summer run!!!!”

To hear more behind-the-scenes dirt about Kris’ talk show, pick up the latest issue of Star on newsstands Thursday.


Scarlett Johansson engaged

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Scarlett Johansson is engaged to her beau, journalist Romain Dauriac, PEOPLE has learned exclusively.

"They're engaged and very happy," a source says of the couple. A rep for the actress had no comment.

The proposal occurred about a month ago. The ring is a vintage Art Deco ring.

Earlier this week, the actress, 28, was spotted wearing the diamond stunner while in Italy promoting her new sci-fi film Under the Skin at the Venice International Film Festival.

Over the past year, Johansson had been spotted wearing diamond rings on her left hand. The last time was in July, when she arrived in Los Angeles wearing an ornate gold ring with a diamond and ruby. That bauble, though, was "simply a piece of jewelry."


Scotty could be in a spot of bother: Pegg accused of lying over Star Trek 'f**k you' backtrack

But the plot has now thickened, with the journalist accused of the 'doorstepping' questioning Pegg's version of events.

Katy Perry's Roar is set to become one of the fastest selling singles of 2013

She changes her mind like a girl changes clothes, but Katy Perry’s decision to bring the release date of her latest single, Roar, forward by a week seems to be paying off: The California gurl is on course for her fourth Number 1 single this weekend, and a huge one at that!

According to the latest Official Charts Company sales data, nearly 103,000 copies of Roar have been purchased in the UK up to midnight last night. If its momentum continues, Katy not only looks set to top the Official Singles Chart on Sunday, but Roar could become one of the fastest selling singles of 2013 so far. Avicii’s Wake Me Up currently holds the title after shifting more than 266,000 copies in its first week on sale in July, while Robin Thicke’s Blurred Lines FT TI and Pharrell Williams sold nearly 191,000 copies, week one, back in May.

Roar is the first track to be lifted from Katy’s upcoming fourth studio album, Prism, which is released in the UK on October 21. Her last album, 2010’s Teenage Dream (including the deluxe edition, Teenage Dream: The Complete Confection), set a new Official Chart record for the most amount of Top 10 singles from one studio album by a female solo artist. Her peers, Lady Gaga and Jessie J, are joint second with six Top 10s each from their debut albums, The Fame and Who You Are.

Justin Bieber: I Didn't Say The N-Word! New Song Is FAKE

Justin Bieber is adamant he did NOT drop the N-word on a new song ... despite multiple reports to the contrary ... and his camp tells TMZ the whole thing was a cruel hoax.

Justin's camp tells TMZ ... someone went to YouTube and created a fake account which looked very similar to Bieber's REAL YouTube account.

We're told the hoaxer then uploaded a song called, "What She Wants (Official) 2013" ... which featured a singer that sounds like Bieber dropping the N-word in one of the lyrics.

The story was picked up by multiple media outlets.

But we're told Bieber had NOTHING to do with the song and has since launched his record label's legal team to have the song wiped from the Internet.

The video has since been removed from YouTube.

Billboard's track-by-track review of Yours Truly

Ariana Grande was never in danger of being a one-hit wonder. Anyone who heard "The Way," her Top 10 debut single featuring Mac Miller, when the song was first released last spring quickly understood that the co-star of "Victorious" possessed a musical ability too magnetic to be contained to one radio hit. "Yours Truly" carries the expectations of a young singer who has already proven herself on the pop charts, and even if the songs on her debut could not equal the quality of "The Way," Grande had the fan base and powerful pipes to survive a misfire.

Thankfully, Ariana Grande's debut LP is a surprisingly varied affair for a 20-year-old Nickelodeon star with a devastatingly strong voice. The R&B effort could have easily featured 11 carbon copies of her breakout single, but "Better Left Unsaid" is a slow-building club banger and "Piano" is an uptempo pop track that should make Sara Bareilles envious. "Yours Truly" benefits from ace production by Babyface and Harmony Samuels (among others), but credit Grande for making the most of her mainstream bow. There is a lot to like about "Yours Truly," and a lot to look forward to in Grande's career.

Lamar Odom Enters Rehab for Drug and Alcohol Abuse

Lamar Odom has checked himself into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation center, PEOPLE confirms.

"He realized he needs help," a source says of the NBA free agent and husband of reality star Khloé Kardashian Odom.

Odom's drug use had been causing trouble in the couple's marriage, though Kardashian has been focused on getting her husband help.

Late last week, Odom was arrested for DUI.

The basketball player, 32, has admitted to drug use in the past. He violated NBA drug policies twice in eight months back in 2001, and spoke in 2003 of his marijuana use. "I just couldn't control myself in L.A. ... the lifestyle that I was living and the things I had access to," he said.

Jon Stewart Spoofs Miley Cyrus on Daily Show Return

Welcome back, Jon Stewart! The beloved TV host returned on Tuesday, Sept. 3, to The Daily Show stage and his re-entry was a little rocky, to say the least.

Stewart took a three-month hiatus this summer to direct his first feature film, Rosewater, about a journalist's arrest and torture by the Iranian government, and it seems that his experience may have profoundly affected him. The 50-year-old host showed up for his first day of work looking a little worse for the wear -- and speaking in a different language.

"The Middle East has changed him. He's not even acting American. Get him a defibrillator and two Big Macs!" John Oliver, the show's interim host, says to Daily Show correspondent Jessica Williams.

ARTPOP more than triples the pre-order sales of Prism

In the battle of the Q4 sirens, Capitol’s Katy Perry enjoys a decided advantage in single sales—her “Roar” has moved 1.5 million in just three weeks, nearly three times those generated by “Applause,” the first single from Interscope’s Lady Gaga. But with 45k+ in preorders, Gaga’s forthcoming ARTPOP (due out 11/11) has more than triple the numbers Katy has scored thus far for Prism (which streets 10/22). You’ll recall that Katy’s last album sold 2.7m, while Gaga moved 2.3m. Handicappers are handicapping 400k bows for both. It’s still early days, so beware sweeping conclusions about these numbers—a lot can happen between now and when we finally dip into the eggnog. Stay tuned for more geek-friendly stats from the fourth-quarter horse race. (9/4a)

Trent Reznor: 'I'm Not The Same Person I Was 20 Years Ago'

Trent Reznor is known as a detail guy: a meticulous composer and manipulator of sound, layers upon layers of it. From his band's genesis 25 years ago, the leader of Nine Inch Nails has been known for songs of deep, menacing pain, rage and self-destruction. Today, Reznor's dark days of alcohol and drug abuse are behind him — and he finds himself, at 48, with a wife and two young kids.

The new Nine Inch Nails album, Hesitation Marks, ends a hiatus that Reznor announced in 2009 — and, as he tells NPR's Melissa Block, he sees the new record in part as a reaction to his earlier self. He recently spoke with Block about reacting to criticism, working with Lindsey Buckingham and the reasons he thinks opening for Guns N' Roses in Germany was a big mistake. Hear the radio version at the audio link, and read more of their conversation below.

FOX Picks Up Scripted Comedy Series Based On Judge Mathis' Life, Backed By Ellen DeGeneres

He's not exactly the first name I'd think of if I was asked what public personality whose life I'd like to see a TV series built on.

But it's happening, thanks in part to Ellen DeGeneres of all people. Maybe she's a fan, and I'm just not aware.

A scripted TV comedy series based on the life of Judge Greg Mathis has been put into development at Warner Bros TV and Ellen DeGeneres' company, A Very Good Production.

Fox has picked up a script commitment for the untitled project, which will be written by brothers Todd Jones and Earl Richey Jones (Johnson Family Vacation, In Living Color), and will follow the life of a thug-turned-judge who is in full control of his courtroom, but has zero control over the 4 children he's raising at home with his wife.

Mathis, once a gang member in his youth, turned his life around after ending up in jail, and his single mother was diagnosed with cancer.

And yes, he has 4 kids, just like the character in the potential series.

Mathis, DeGeneres, Todd and Earl Richey Jones are all executive producing the project.


How random.

What Does Cameron Diaz's NYC Apartment Look Like?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Cameron Diaz is that rare actress who can rock a surfboard as convincingly as she does the red carpet. Whether riding a rogue wave or a wave of publicity, the towering blond, blue-eyed beauty with the blinding smile oozes glamour both on and off the screen. So it makes sense that when it came time to rethink the interior of her apartment in Manhattan's West Village, Diaz looked to the West Coast's reigning queen of razzle-dazzle, Kelly Wearstler, to give the space a healthy dose of Hollywood swagger.

Diaz found a kindred spirit in Wearstler. "I blame my love of sparkly, shiny things on my Cuban roots," says the Southern California–born actress, who points to the formative years she spent on the beach for her tomboyish ways. "But I also wanted a place that felt very homey, very tactile. Kelly is unparalleled when it comes to striking that mix."

Over the past month, Yahoo teased users with different company logos running daily in advance of the makeover. The company had already come up with a new logo design and wasn't seeking crowd-sourced input to the design of the logo but rather wanted to see what kind of feedback it was getting externally as well as internally.

The company said it wanted its new logo to be “whimsical, purple, with an exclamation point.”

In step with Yahoo's marquee makeover, the company's exclamation point will become a changing animation. "That whimsy, that whit is very much a wink and a nod to the DNA that has very much been a legacy of the Yahoo brand."

McFly sing One Direction's praises: "They look after their women"

And let's no forget that they write their own music and play their own instruments too!
