Nicole Kidman knocked to the ground by cyclist


Nicole Kidman has been knocked over by a cyclist and according to reports, is planning on pressing charges.

The actress was returning to her hotel after attending the Calvin Klein show on Thursday as part of New York Fashion Week.

Nicole fell to the ground after being hit by a photographer named Carl Wu, who was apparently racing to try and take a picture for her.

According to TMZ Nicole is furious and wants to press charges against the paparazzo.

Police and an ambulance were called and Nicole was treated for minor injuries.

Dianna Agron Looks Flawless


She has a penchant for retro-style clothing, often stepping out in an array of elegant dresses.

And Dianna Agron modelled one of her best looks yet on Thursday.

The 27-year-old Glee star was simply stunning in a sapphire dress featuring cap sleeves and sheer detailing at the bust.

The blonde beauty was leaving the Good Morning America studios where she was making an appearance to promote her new movie.

While accessories in matching hues often don't work, Dianna's clutch bag and gorgeous Christian Louboutin stilettos in the same colour as her dress were the perfect touch.

Dianna had even painted her fingernails blue, tying the entire ensemble together perfectly.

Avicii: 'I never thought Wake Me Up was special'


You may not have heard of the name Tim Bergling, but you might be aware of his music.

Swedish born Bergling - aka Avicii - is the man behind one of this summer's big hits, his chart-topping masterstroke 'Wake Me Up' (which features Aloe Blacc).

And his star looks set to continue to rise with the release of his debut album 'True' on Monday September 17.

The DJ and record producer, who is still only 24 years old, caught up with us ahead of his iTunes Festival show this week to discuss working with guitar legend Nile Rodgers, how his charity is helping millions worldwide and why he'll never “cheat” his fans...

Congratulations on the massive success of 'Wake Me Up'. It seems to have connected with so many people. At what stage did you think it might be special?

To be honest, I never did. 'Wake Me Up' is one of those songs that is a bit of a risk. I felt cautious when I created it. Up until that point, I had only recorded classic club or dance tracks. 'Wake Me Up' was a huge step forward for me musically. It is a mixture of genres that you wouldn't necessarily expect to be put together. I was massively worried that people wouldn't react but, thankfully, everything that has happened this summer with the song has been amazing.

Inside Gwyneth Paltrow's "amazing English garden party"

Gwyneth Paltrow gave her GOOP fans a glimpse into her lavish inner circle on Thursday.

The Oscar winner - who turns 41 this month - posted a video of her twee, star-studded English garden party in the Hamptons this summer.

The Vespa daredevil threw the picturesque family affair to celebrate her first capsule collection with her 'sister' Stella McCartney.

Gwyneth locks lips with Stella at the end of the one-minute video, in which her husband of a decade Chris Martin makes a brief cameo.

'Sometimes in life you get a girlfriend who becomes like a sister. Someone who really sees you,' Paltrow wrote on her website.

Sean Kingston: Jamaicans are better at twerking than Americans

While twerking has recently become a phenomenon in America, Jamaican artist Sean Kingston explains that women from his native country are the best at it in an interview with The Crosby Press.

"I'm not going to lie, I see the twerk videos here and I'm impressed," Kingston says. "But the Jamaican girls, we're talking a whole other essence. We're talking dancehall. They do competitions every year for the dancehall queen in Jamaica."

"You got girls dancing on their heads, like walking on their heads dancing," he continues. "It's like they ain't got no bones in their body."

Dina Lohan Arrested For Drunk Driving

UPDATE 9:20 AM PT -- Our Lohan sources tell us, Lindsay was NOT the person who picked Dina up from the station -- in fact, we're told Lindsay didn't find out about the arrest until the story broke this morning.

Dina Lohan was arrested for drunk driving in Long Island, NY last night ... and cops say her blood alcohol level was more than TWICE the legal limit.

Lindsay Lohan's 50-year-old mother was pulled over on the Northern State Parkway by New York State Police around 11 pm Thursday night ... after she was allegedly going 77mph in a 55 in her white BMW.

During the stop, cops say she appeared intoxicated -- and tested her blood alcohol level, which registered at .20 -- more than twice the legal limit of .08.

According to officials, "Lohan made an allegation that she was injured during the course of the arrest" ... but when medical personnel responded to the scene and determined she was fine, Dina "recanted her claim."

Lohan was hauled to a nearby station where she was booked on two counts of driving while intoxicated and one count of speeding.

After posing for a squinty-eyed mug shot, Lohan was released to a sober 3rd party. So far, no word on WHO picked up Lohan from the station.

Lohan is due back in court later this month.

Dina's been on a party tear this month -- TMZ obtained a photo of Lohan partying like a drunken sailor at a giant party over Labor Day weekend.

People at the party tell us she was a mess that night -- slurring her speech and zoning out.

FKA twigs - Papi Pacify

FKA Twigs is defining the future of (sultry) trip-hop track by track: next week sees the release of her EP2 on Young Turks, a brilliant and brooding 4-track thing of immaculate beauty. Papi Pacify, a track with a title that perfectly stands for everything FKA Twigs stands for, receives the video treatment in this black & white piece directed by FKA Twigs and Tom Beard.

Equal parts shocking and mesmerising, it has the Young Turks signed vocalist intrusively enveloped by a large man, his fingers going .gif-like in and out of her mouth, and flickered, strobe-ish lights hit her covered in glitter. The track, which is co-produced by twigs herself and shadowy Venezuelan artist Arca, rattles and crunches, subtle chords hiding just around the corner.

Hot 97 DJ Mister Cee: I'm Not Gay, But I Like Fellatio With Transsexuals

James Franco, the New William Faulkner

In 1930, future Nobel Prize winner William Faulkner published As I Lay Dying, a multi-vocal novel about the death and burial of a matriarch. Some eighty years later, Yale graduate student James Franco decided to make a film from that novel.

Inevitably, a movie tie-in version of the novel would be reissued. That was expected. The look of that reissue, however, was not. Thus, when Time Out New York's film critic Keith Uhlich tweeted the following, it received dozens of retweets and favorites, the vast, vast majority displaying dismay at Franco's shameless appropriation of a literary masterpiece.

Flavorwire's Jason Diamond expressed his dismay by writing, "The James Franco As I Lay Dying Book Cover Ruined Our Day," while Slate asked, "Is This the Worst Movie Tie-In Book Cover Ever?"

David Haglund of the latter aptly pointed out, "In case you’re wondering: No, As I Lay Dying is not a memoir, and it is not by James Franco. And William Faulkner, though he did have a mustache, wasn’t quite so hunky."

When The Atlantic Wire asked Uhlich why he was so dismayed by the cover, he answered, simply, "Franco. Always Franco," a response he had given over Twitter as well. He added that he would "leave it at that."

We understand. Last month, Los Angeles Times book critic David Ulin begged Franco to "please stop" dabbling in literature as a mere means for self promotion. Quite apparently, that is not advice Franco is likely to heed.

Boris Kodjoe Says Gaining Weight In A Marriage Is Unacceptable

We all know Boris Kodjoe has no tolerance for the plus-size lifestyle so it should come as no surprise that when asked about relationship dealbreakers, weight was a major one. During the press junket for “Baggage Claim,” Cocoa Fab’s Cherise Nicole talked to Boris and Derek Luke to ask them what they could and couldn’t tolerate when it comes to women, and when it came to the topic of weight gain, Boris said that was a no go.

“Ok part of the deal is, you got to keep it sexay. Got to keep it Hot. Because it’s easy getting married, but it’s not as easy to stay married. And part of that is, like, I make my wife, my girlfriend. She’s my girlfriend. So, we got to keep it sexay. If we keep it sexay, we keep it right, everything else falls into place.

“What if I gained 200 pounds? And then she’ll look at me like, really? And I couldn’t even blame her if she started looking around. Because I took her off the market, so I have to deliver what the market could possibly deliver for her. So, I gotta take that place. Right? So, I gotta fulfill those things that the market could’ve given her. I’m the market now, so I got to keep it Hot and she has to do the same for me.”

Jessica Timberlake

Jessica Biel has officially taken her husband Justin Timberlake's last name.

Eleven months after marrying Justin Timberlake, Jessica Biel has officially taken her man's last name.

"It's all official!" a source tells Life & Style. "The paperwork is done and she's now legally Jessica Timberlake."

An insider close to the star says she'll still be known professionally as Jessica Biel.

A week after their Oct. 19, 2012, nuptials, the actress revealed she had plans to trade in Biel for Timberlake.

"It's weird because it's feels like almost nothing has changed," she's said about married life. "But yet something that you really can't describe — or something that isn't really tangible — has changed."

Justin and Jessica, 31, began dating in 2007. The pair separated in March 2011, but rekindled their romance that fall. The "Take Back the Night" singer proposed to the brunette beauty while vacationing in Jackson, Wyo., in December 2011.

3 Classic Doctors Pretend to Protest the 50th Anniversary at a Closed BBC Studio

Three of the actors to have played the character of the Doctor have protested at not being asked by the BBC to take part in the “Doctor Who” 50th-anniversary special.

Earlier this week, the BBC revealed that Matt Smith, David Tennant and John Hurt would be starring, as various incarnations of the Doctor, in The Day of the Doctor, a 75-minute episode of the long-running science-fiction television drama series. However — and despite hopes from fans of the show to the contrary — none of the actors from the series prior to 2005 (known as “Classic Doctor Who”) have been signed up to take part.

Step forward Peter Davison, Colin Baker and Sylvester McCoy — the Fifth, Sixth and Seventh Doctors, respectively — who, according to Doctor Who TV, were spotted by Conor Keegan, loitering outside BBC Television Centre with protest banners:

BET Cancels 'Reed Between The Lines' + Orders 2nd Season Of 'Being Mary Jane'

Maybe it shouldn't be a huge surprise, after a star of and key player in the series, Tracee Ellis Ross, suddenly exited from BET's Reed Between The Lines, over a year ago. At the time, BET said that the series would continue on without her, as Tony Rock, Charlie Robinson and Michole White were added to the series' cast as regulars, with star Malcolm-Jamal Warner.

Ellis Ross did hint that there was a chance that she might return, and that we shouldn't be surprised if her character does. As she said, "I love Reed Between the Lines, I believe in it. There is a chance I'll go back, always. There's nothing weird about it."

We can officially put a nail in that coffin, because BET has officially canceled Reed Between The Lines, according to Deadline, who also add that the network has already ordered a second season of its freshman drama Being Mary Jane, even though its first season hasn't even debuted yet. It's slated to begin airing as a regular series during the first half of 2014.

Although maybe it too shouldn't come as a surprise, since, despite a late 10:30pm start on a Tuesday night, the BET movie pilot for Being Mary Jane, which stars Gabrielle Union, drew a strong 4 million viewers and a 2.0 rating with adults 18-49, making it that July night's highest rated cable TV show, and the 2nd highest rated show on all of TV, behind NBC's America's Got Talent in the same target demo (adults 18-49).

Collapse )


Reed Between The Lines was pretty much dead after Tracee left. I don't understand what happened there. Most actors usually give first dibs to the shows they are already on, especially when the other show they are signing on to is just in the pilot stages. In other news, BET needs to air season one of BMJ now! I don't get this waiting for January business.

Book Post: Christopher Eccleston and Patrick Ness Participate in "Read for RNIB Day"


Doctor Who star Christopher Eccleston talks to Vickie Scullard about his love of reading — and why books should be available to all. He is the young lad who grew up in Little Hulton and went on to star as the ninth incarnation of The Doctor — in Doctor Who. Before then, Christopher Eccleston made his name alongside Ewan McGregor in the low-budget thriller Shallow Grave, directed by another local lad Danny Boyle.

And for his next role, the 49-year-old returns to sci-fi in Hollywood blockbuster Thor: The Dark World, playing Malekith the Accursed, leader of the Dark Elves of Svartalfheim and Thor’s arch-enemy.

But despite all these starring roles in film and television, it is reading where his true passion lies. The actor is a self-confessed “avid reader”, so when the Royal National Institute of Blind People (RNIB) asked him to get involved with its reading day, he was happy to help.

So yes, the promised elaboration.

Is it the best song of half 2013?

We’ll need a few more listens before we can answer that. It is a great single.

Isaiah Washington Says There Was An Agenda To Make Him Seem Homophobic

Damn, even Michael Jackson was in on it! How dare anyone be up in arms about your choking your co-star, and calling another one a "little fa--ot".

"At the time, of course. Who wouldn’t? I was just trying to tell the truth, but it was incredibly hard to try and stand up for myself and for my team to get the record straight. At the time, I was the largest African-American in the public eye (lol). I was on the most successful show in America at the time. It wasn’t hard to latch the story on me and have it go viral around the world. What was hard was that the story was never accurate. It wasn’t right. Some people used the platform to spread their own agenda. Those people didn’t get what they wanted in the end. Perez Hilton said the F-word to Will.I.Am and got hit in the face. He then went beyond the call of duty to apologize to me [for his condemnation]…

When [the incident] happened, I was single-handedly desegregating the NOH8 campaign because I told them directly, “you’re making the gay issue and civil liberties and civil rights like it’s a white issue. You need to Blacken it up.” I was the first Black celebrity to take a photo with the NOH8 tattoo on my face, but no one cared because Michael Jackson died, and because they wanted to hurt someone…

There’s no record of using the F-word or anything negative about me in the news for the last six years. I didn’t turn out to be this homophobic train wreck or whatever the agenda was at the time to make me.
I am pretty much the same person for trying to get this thing called humanity at the forefront, you know? We have to be healing ourselves. So that’s pretty much what I have to say on that.”

The CW Developing Drama About Transgender Teen

The CW, network for all your teen-angst, ripped abs, and model competition needs, is developing a drama about a transgender teen.

I’ll admit, The CW doesn’t have much to offer me these days. Dawson’s Creek is long gone and Arrow  is the only show I watch on the network, but I might have to give this one a chance in the hopes they do something great with it.

The Hollywood Reporter says The CW is developing an hour-long drama:

Written by playwright-musician Kyle Jarrow, ZE revolves around a Texas teenager who announces that she is transgendered and will be living life as a boy. As his dysfunctional family spirals into identity crises of their own, he discovers that despite his appearance, he may be the most well-adjusted of them all.

Without knowing too many details at this point, I have to say the name of the show alone will help to spread awareness. Many won’t know it’s a gender neutral pronoun and its use could become more widespread.

ZE certainly won’t be the first television show to feature a transgender character but I think it might be the first to actually focus on one. While they’ve certainly got my attention, I’m now interested to know whether or not they’ll cast someone who is transgender in the role. Recently, Laverne Cox featured on Netflix’s critically acclaimed series Orange is the New Black, which has helped highlight her already existing transgender activism.

Rodney Jerkins Confirms MARIAH CAREY STILL Has Her VOICE!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Mariah Carey used to belt out those high notes flawlessly, but can she still do it?

Carey has been catching a lot of flack about her five-octave range. For a few years now — and especially after her BET Awards performance this year — folks claim she may have lost her iconic voice and now resorts to only lip-syncing.

But, veteran record producer Rodney Jerkins claims that isn’t so. “Absolutely, Mariah has the voice. Blew me away in the studio”, Jerkins exclaimed. And although Mi Mi might still have it, Rodney condones the use of lip-syncing occasionally saying, “Even Michael Jackson lip-synced at times.”

Whether she’s lip-syncing or not, fans will be excited to learn that Mariah may be putting out new music soon. Uber-producer Jermaine Dupri posted a photo of himself, Mariah, Rodney, Mike WiLL Made-It and Hit Boy in the studio. Earlier this year, Mariah decided to delay the release of her 14th studio album, The Art Of Letting Go. As of right now the album doesn’t have a new release date, but the fact that she’s in the studio is a good sign.

Gene Simmons comments on Miley's Tongue in Rolling Stone interview

Did you see Miley Cyrus perform at the VMAs?
Oh sure, of course.

She got widely criticized for sticking out her tongue, among other things. Are you surprised by the backlash?
I don't understand why people got so upset. Whether you stick out your tongue or shake your tushy, all the other girls are doing the same thing. Any girl whose name ends with an A—Madonna, Shakira, Rihanna, Lady Gaga, all these girls who sing pop songs through backing tracks like it's karaoke and gyrate all over the stage—if they can do it, why can't Miley? Either condemn the whole lot of them or leave her alone.

As somebody who built a career around sticking out his tongue, how would you rate her tongue-wagging performance?
It was okay. But that's a girl's version. It's like girls basketball. It's as good as girls can get at basketball. But you can't play with the guys.

JGL: It'll be 'tacky' of me to clarify my sexuality

Joseph Gordon-Levitt may be open to talking about porn, but he's not so down on addressing those gay rumors.

Speaking to Out magazine, the actor revealed the reason why he won't confirm or deny the claims: it's simply tasteless for him to address his sexuality simply because of a few allegations.

"That would be really tacky—they would win if I had to clarify," he told the magazine.

According to the former child star, he quickly learned that self-preservation and privacy were very important to celebrities while growing up in the business.

"It comes from a really young age," he said. "It can be really awkward and difficult to be thought of as this thing on TV. Before understanding it or being able to analyze it, I just knew it made me really anxious."

LINDSAY LOHAN Mom, You've Got Some 'Splainin' to Do


Lindsay Lohan just arrived at her mom's house on Long Island ...this after Dina Lohan's arrest for an off-the-charts DWI.

Lindsay showed up in a black Porsche with her sister, Ali and an unidentified guy.  Lindsay was driving -- and no one was harmed!

Shortly after Linds showed up ... her old attorney Mark Heller walked out of Dina's pad, and announced he's representing her in the DWI.

Heller pointed out his client is a first time DWI offender with no prior record (criminally, anyway) -- and as a result he felt she would be treated with "fairness." Translation: he's hoping for no jail time.

As we previously reported ... Dina was arrested Thursday night ... and cops say she had a BAC of 0.2 -- nearly 3 times the legal limit.

Disney Postpones "Pirates 5", The World Rejoices

Disney on Tuesday put ”Pirates of the Caribbean 5″ on hold. The next installment in the franchise from producer Jerry Bruckheimer and star Johnny Depp had been scheduled to be released on July 10, 2015.

The franchise has been a huge moneymaker for Disney, with the first four films having taken in $3.7 billion worldwide, and insiders say the studio is now hoping for a 2016 launch. But Bruckheimer and Depp misfired badly on this summer’s megaflop “The Lone Ranger,” resulting in a $190 million write-down for Disney, and the actor’s box-office clout isn’t what it once was.

While the “Pirates” movies and “Alice in Wonderland” have been moneymakers, “Dark Shadows,” “The Rum Diary” and “The Tourist” are a few of the underwhelming projects starring the quirky actor in recent years.

Disney’s summer 2015 schedule had been crowded. On Monday, the studio shifted its Edgar Wright Marvel movie “Ant-Man” from November to July 15. It also has “Avengers: Age of Ultron” set for May 1 and Pixar’s “Inside Out” slated for June 19.

While the domestic returns on the “Pirates” films have been declining, foreign grosses have risen significantly. Back in 2011, “Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides” brought in $241 million in the U.S., the lowest of any film in the series. But its $802 million foreign haul was the best of any of the films, and gave it a $1.04 billion global total.

There is reason for Disney to get the film right, because the effects-heavy “Pirates” movies are major investments. The production budget for “On Stranger Tides” was $250 million.



Cher Turns Down Sochi Olympics Opening Ceremony

You can add Cher to the ever-growing list of celebrities who have denounced Russia's "gay propaganda" laws. In a new interview, the legendary singer-actress reveals that she turned down the chance to perform at the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi because of the country's anti-gay legislation.

"I can’t name names but my friend called who is a big oligarch over there, and asked me if I’d like to be an ambassador for the Olympics and open the show," Cher told Maclean's writer Elio Iannacci. "I immediately said no. I want to know why all of this gay hate just exploded over there." Still, Cher says her friend offered a slightly more optimistic take on the overall situation in Russia: "He said the Russian people don’t feel the way the government does."

She also sounded off on two other iconic pop divas who have courted controversy in recent months after speaking out against Russia's stance on the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community: Lady Gaga and Madonna. "Who knows how she will evolve, but Gaga has an idea for herself and she follows it," Cher noted. "Madonna was the same way. Madonna said and did what she wanted, whenever she wanted and she was ahead of the curve. Always. She had her ear to the ground more than anyone."

2013 is turning out to be a banner year for Cher, who's gearing up to release "Closer to the Truth," her first album of all-new material in over a decade, on Sept. 24. She kicked off the promotional blitz for the new album with a headlining performance at New York City's Pride Dance on the Pier. She'll soon join the fifth season of "The Voice," as an adviser to Blake Shelton's team, and is gearing up to embark on a forthcoming concert tour.

Showtime bets 'Ray Donovan' will be summer success for years

From the FBI agent tripping on acid to the action film star marrying a transsexual, the Sunday night Showtime drama "Ray Donovan" has served up its share of bizarre twists.

In the tale of a ruthless yet morally conflicted Hollywood "fixer" played by Liev Schreiber, "you never know where it is going to go," executive producer Mark Gordon says.

What the premium cable network does know is that "Ray Donovan" - now heading into the final three episodes - will be its biggest show in its first season. Ratings are outpacing the current record holder, domestic terror thriller "Homeland," by almost 40 percent.

The show already has been renewed for a second season, and CBS Corp-owned Showtime Networks Inc has bet on "Ray Donovan" as its next big showcase.

'Revenge' key art: Emily Thorne is a bloody bride

Emily Thorne (Emily VanCamp) is a bride-to-be on the upcoming season of Revenge, but something tells us this wedding isn’t going to go according to plan. That “something” is the show’s season 3 key art, which EW has obtained exclusively.

In the gorgeous photo above, Emily dons a pristine white wedding gown, a perfect tan (thanks, Hamptons!) and a very gloomy bouquet of thorny black roses that seem to be the cause of the stream of blood running down her arm. (We’re guessing this one’s not going on the mantel…)

The pic echoes what new showrunner Sunil Nayar told EW about the start of the new season, in which weCollapse )“That’s the big, huge event and huge mystery that we’re building to in the first episode this season leading up to a grand December finale,” Nayar told us. “We’re really excited for all of the little movements everyone makes toward each other and there are great parties building up to a wedding, and, of course, the wedding itself. It’s all going to drive the first half of the season.”

Revenge returns Sunday Sept. 29 at 9 p.m. ET on ABC.


Madonna is not engaged to her young boyfriend.

A spokesperson for MADONNA has shut down a tabloid report suggesting the pop icon is engaged.

Editors at In Touch magazine claimed the Material Girl is ready to take her romance with 25-year-old Brahim Zaibat to the next level by getting married.

Madonna was even said to have introduced the back-up dancer as her "fiance" during a visit to the Kabbalah Centre in New York last week (04Sep13), with a purported source insisting, "She looked so happy and didn't try to keep it a secret. It was like she wanted everyone to know she was going to marry this man."

However, a representative for the star has now set the record straight, telling the engagement report is "not true at all".

Madonna's first marriage to actor Sean Penn ended in 1989 after four years, and she divorced filmmaker Guy Ritchie in 2008 after eight years as man and wife.

Harry Styles Meets Elton John and Liam Payne Hits Out At Twitter Abuse Against Girlfriend


He's one of the most famous singers in the world.

But One Direction star Harry Styles opted to take the tube as he headed to Sir Elton John's gig at the iTunes Festival on Thursday night.

Instead of travelling in a chauffeur-driven car or limousine, Harry attempted to blend in the crowd on the Northern Line train, keeping his head down as he checked his phone.

And while Harry's pop star status would surely have earned him a priority seat on the train, he instead chose to stand, leaning on the side of the carriage as he journeyed to The Roundhouse in north London for the performance.

One Direction hunk Liam Payne has hit out at those fans who have sent new girlfriend Sophia Smith abuse on Twitter, revealing he worries she might read some of the comments directed at her and insisting that she doesn't deserve such attacks.

Taking to Twitter today protective boyfriend Liam discussed with fans why the abuse upset him so much. He said: "People can say what they like I couldn't give a rats a*s about it anymore... :)"

Going on to admit he sometimes searches her name just to see what fans are saying, he explained: "I do it lots cuz I worry she might read it... in the end she's just a girl like u sat reading twitter on her phone."

Adding to another: "She doesn't deserve to sit and read all that who does?"

The Talk: Do You Want To Know a Secret?


It was no ordinary week on the CBS Radford lot in Studio City, where the ladies of "The Talk" kicked off their fourth season with a bang. Or, rather, a pssst!

Every day this past week, each of the hosts took a turn sharing an intimate secret that they've never revealed publicly before.

Friday was Sheryl Underwood's turn, and hers may have been the most powerful of them all.

Her revelation: that she was born premature with a twin and the twin did not survive. Moreover, she says that when she later saw her mom stab her dad, she realized that her dad was in fact a good man (she did not elaborate further on this part of the story). To this date, she feels her sister is her guardian angel.

"I try to make everyone laugh and everyone happy, so that they never have to experience what I experienced during parts of my childhood, she said. "My mother did not want me to be close to my father, so she would tell me that my father killed my sister." In truth, she says, she later learned from her father that her parents never left the hospital while she and her sister were in the incubator.

Maggie Gyllenhaal goes bra-less in a sheer dress as she attends fragrance launch


She's known for her quirky and eccentric sense of style.

But Maggie Gyllenhaal took her experimentation a bit too far on Thursday night as she opted to go without a bra in a sheer dress for a fragrance launch alongside her husband Peter Sarsgaard.

Maggie, 35, ended up displaying a bit too much in the see-through patterned paisley dress, which she teamed with teal toe-cap heels.

However, both Maggie and her husband Peter appeared unaware of her wardrobe malfunction as they happily posed for photographers at the launch of Estee Lauder's Modern Muse fragrance.

David Tutera and His Ex Will Raise Their Twins Separately

David and Cielo
Following a messy split from his ex-husband, event planner David Tutera — famous for producing Cinderella-worthy parties for celebrity clients like Jennifer Lopez and Matthew McConaughey — is raising his biological daughter Cielo.

Meanwhile, his ex, Ryan Jurica, will raise his own biological son and Cielo’s fraternal twin, Cedric.

Tutera, whose breakup occurred while a surrogate was carrying the twins, says the situation was far from ideal.

“It was a very confusing time,” Tutera, 47, tells PEOPLE exclusively, adding that he and Jurica never discussed keeping the twins together. “The divorce happened so quickly after the [embryo] transfer was successful that there wasn’t time to mourn the loss of raising a second child — I was mourning the loss of my relationship.”

Reviews Of Work Bitch

This song is amazing.

(We will elaborate later.)

Two hours pass…

So yes, the promised elaboration. As we explained on Twitter earlier, we’ve decided that our review should take the form of a question and answer session with fans, because often there are things fans want to know about big releases like this and they don’t feel that their real questions are answered by a more conventional sort of review.

So here are fifty questions (picked at random, with all the duplicate ones about RuPaul removed) and fifty answers regarding ‘Work Bitch’.

  1. it is the best song of  half 2013?
    We’ll need a few more listens before we can answer that. It is a great single.

  2. When we hear it in a club, will we turn this shit up?
    The turning up of ‘shit’ will not be your responsibility, unless you are a DJ. If you are a DJ yes you probably should turn this shit up. (It sounds loud even if you listen to it quite quietly.)

  3. does the single lives to its BIG BIG BIG expectations?
    Can any Britney single ever meet the ridiculous expectations of ‘the internet’? Probably not, but one thing we’re sure of is that it won’t confirm the worst fears of some Britney fans. (Which is to say, it’s not just some generic trance track with Britney over the top.)

  4. in terms of a “BRITNEY 1ST SINGLE” how you you place it against its predecessors: Womanizer, Gimme More, HIAM, etc
    Well it passes the ‘Finish Listening To It For The First Time And Go “Blimey”‘ test, which is one of the most important tests when it comes to a first single. Britney will probably be wise to follow this with a more traditional ‘songy’ sort of song, but ‘Work Bitch’ is a good impact tune.

Anniversary of Tupac's Death: Greatest Tupac Songs Of All Time

On September 13th, 1996 the world lost arguably one of the greatest rappers of all time, Tupac Shakur. On the night of September 7th Tupac attended a boxing match at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas between Mike Tyson and Bruce Sheldon.

There was a scuffle with an alleged gang member in the hotel lobby, because he had originally robbed a member of Death Row Records, Tupac’s label. The hotel’s video surveillance caught the fight on film. After wards Tupac and Suge Knight got in his BMW and was heading to a club. A white Cadillac pulled up next to Knight’s car and unleashed gun shots hitting Tupac multiple times.

Now, 17 years later we are preparing for another big boxing weekend as Floyd Mayweather and Saúl “Canelo” Álvarez and honoring Tupac’s death with a list of his greatest songs of all-time.

Tupac’s style has been unique to him, undeniably recognized instantly. Even after death albums featuring unreleased songs have been released and sold well.

One of the pillars of Tupac’s career was his socially conscious lyrics. He tackled all sorts of issues like social injustice, poverty, and police brutality. He could make songs that showed his anger and turn around and make songs that showed compassion.

Nevertheless he is one of the greatest of all-time and we’re honoring him with this list. We wanted it to be Top 5, but I couldn’t wither it down to 5 so we did 7 instead.

Ed Sheeran and other musicians who date above their stations


Don't get us wrong, we're a little bit obsessed with Ed Sheeran but even we could hardly believe it when he recently revealed that he was dating Ellie Goulding at this year's MTV Video Music Awards.

In an interview with US radio station Clock 98.9 he said: 'I mean, normal people don't hold hands if they're just friends.'

However, their fling was short-lived, as Ed then went on to say: 'It was going on. And now it's not.' Still, we reckon dating Ellie is pretty impressive - especially as she's considered one of the hottest women in the UK's music industry. Well done, Ed.

Two of ONTD's favorites announce a tour


Robin Thicke is taking Blurred Lines on tour, and he’s bringing British pop star Jessie J along with him. The Song of the Summer star and the Alive singer are hitting up 15 cities, beginning February 21 in Atlanta (hmm, T.I.‘s hometown…) and working their way through New York, Boston and Seattle before finishing up in San Francisco on March 29.

DJ Cassidy will serve as the first opener, and considering the two singers appear on his forthcoming single “Calling All Hearts,” you can expect all three to join the stage at some point during Thicke’s set each night. Additionally, both singers have worked with Pharrell, so there’s a chance he could pop in for a surprise appearance.

Film Face-Off


This week we have two movies that seem to have come out of nowhere. Pitch Black hit theaters in February 2000, with a pretty unknown cast. Vin Diesel had Saving Private Ryan under this belt, and the voice of the Iron Giant in Iron Giant. Since Pitch made a little money, and Diesel's star power grew there was 2004's The Chronicles of Riddick. That movie didn't make half its budget back and oddly starred Judi Dench. So, we all assumed Riddick would stay dead and buried. We were wrong. (If you say those last two sentences using your best Diesel impression it sounds much more important, yet also dumber.)

Riddick has gone back to the roots. Forget the Necromongers (which you probably already did)rude, Riddick gets back to things that go bump in the night... on a distant planet... with bounty hunters... and people depending on the criminal Riddick to save the day. This week's Film Face-off is a Dieselpalooza with Pitch Black vs. Riddick.

Pitch Black is a good movie that gets a little overhyped. Riddick is a bad movie with some pretty fun moments. Diesel is clearly at his best when he's speaking with the less-is-more concept. If nothing else comes from the Fast and Furious films it's that lesson. There are three mini-films that make up Riddick. There's the Castaway-like beginning with the dog playing the role of Wilson. Then the bounty hunter blather, and finally the aliens attacking. For a two-hour action film, the middle destroyed my interest, whereas the middle of Pitch Black only piqued it. We now know better than to think we've seen the last of Riddick. I assume the next installment has him duking it out with Urban on his home planet. Otherwise the fact that Urban has a cameo here, and Riddick won't shut up about his home planet are more messes in an already surprising franchise.


after the major disappointment that was Riddick, Chronicles will remain my fave :)
honestly I just needed this to cheer me up

Tamar Braxton Debuts Atop Billboard R&B and Hip Hop Album Charts

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Tamar Braxton is officially a no.1 charting artist thanks to her album, "Love and War," topping at least two coveted Billboard charts.
According to Nielsen Soundscan, the "All The Way Home" singer's album sold 114,000 copies in its first week, leading to no.1 positions on both the Billboard R&B Albums and R&B/Hip Hop Albums charts.

Beyond that, her album is the first from a female R&B artist to sell over 100,000 copies since Alicia Keys' "Girl On Fire," which debuted over six months ago.

"She tallies the largest sales week for a female R&B/hip-hop album since last November, when Alicia Keys' "Girl on Fire" bowed with 159,000," reports Billboard.

As previously reported, Ariana Grande topped this week's Billboard 200 with her debut album, "Yours Truly." While the album was a big success, moving 138,000 copies first week, it was actually downloaded more than Braxton's.

According to Billboard, Tamar Braxton's "Love and War" actually sold more physical units in stores like Best Buy and Walmart.

"Grande's sales were especially strong in the digital world, as 108,000 of her first-week sales were downloads, or 78%, of her debut. Comparably, Braxton's album only moved 51,000 downloads: 45% of her debut. Braxton's album, however, performed strongly as a CD with physical retailers like Walmart, Best Buy and Target. Because of that, Braxton actually has the No. 1-selling physical album this week (63,000), while Grande's set is the No. 7 physical seller (30,000). On the Digital Albums chart, Grande is No. 1, while Braxton is No. 2," reports Billboard.

Cara Delevingne pulls her usual silly faces with Georgia May Jagger backstage at Marc Jacobs show


Cara Delevingne is known for her goofy demeanor and silly faces, and the supermodel was up to her usual antics backstage at New York Fashion Week.

The 21-year-old, who recently admitted that she thinks Fashion week is 'horrible' because it tires her out, was photographed making faces with model pal Georgia May Jagger as they got beautified before walking in the Marc Jacobs show last night.

In one photo taken backstage, the British beauty opens her mouth as Georgia May pretends to shoot her with a golden gun-shaped pendant hanging around her neck.

The stunning models were given a boyish make-over for the runway show that closed out Fashion Week, wearing peroxide blonde wigs styled into choppy bobs.

Despite Cara's current status as model-of-the-moment, the Marc Jacobs show was the only one she walked in this week, after explaining she was taking a break from modeling to focus on her acting.

She told Industrie magazine: 'Fashion Week is horrible,' before adding: 'I mean it isn't horrible really, it's amazing. But having to work that much every day is.'

'Doctor Who' at 50: Is Tom Baker the greatest Doctor of all?
The 50th anniversary of Doctor Who is right around the corner and, with mere months to go before the celebrations kick off in earnest, Digital Spy wants to know the answer to a very important question - who is your favorite Doctor?

Join us every day from August 28 to September 6 as we take a look back at a half-century of Who and - in a new daily blog - weigh up the merits of each Doctor - from William Hartnell to Matt Smith, before finally revealing DS readers' favorite Doctor of all time on Monday, September 9.

Today we cast our eye over the 7-year tenure of - to date - the longest-serving Doctor of them all, the Bohemian legend who wandered in eternity... Tom Baker!

While he's arguably been usurped by David Tennant in recent years, from 1974 when he assumed the role of the Doctor to the early '00s, Tom Baker was the face that most people associated with Doctor Who.

Think of the scarf or the mop of curly hair - traits more-or-less unique to Baker's Time Lord, yet they became part of the show's wider iconography. "Every interview I get with non-fans has [the question] 'Where's your scarf?'" sixth Doctor actor Colin Baker once lamented...

You could put Tom's dominance down to sheer longevity - but there's so much more to it than that. That Baker's take on the Doctor remained so prevalent in the public consciousness for so long is testament to the power of his performance - a bravura turn that veered from warm, childish glee to potent righteous fury.

In many ways, the fourth Doctor was the most alien of them all; Baker's physical appearance - all teeth and curls, and *those* eyes - aided in that, as did his distinctive, booming voice, but his behavior and mannerisms were also wonderfully oddball and unpredictable.

Regardless of who might be your favorite Doctor, there's no denying that Baker delivered a truly unique performance - one that achieved the difficult task of being utterly distinct from his three predecessors' and one that none of his successors have dared to try and imitate.

An arresting lead in his early seasons - which contained such all-time great stories as 1975's 'Genesis of the Daleks' and 1977's 'The Talons of Weng-Chiang' - it's undeniable that Baker becomes visibly bored as he approaches the final third of his era.

But ever the showman, he never allowed the viewer to be bored, expressing his lingering dissatisfaction in ever more imaginative and original ways - even daring to break the fourth wall on occasion...

Reined in a little for his last season - the show's 18th - Tom Baker again excels. The fourth Doctor becomes a less bombastic, more somber figure - again, many have speculated, as a result of Baker's own dissatisfaction with the role - but it's a shift that seems to fit with a character approaching his final end.

The longest-serving Doctor, certainly one of the most fondly-remembered and the winner of many, many previous polls of this nature... but is Tom Baker the greatest Doctor of them all?
