Beck Breaks Out the Xylophone on 'Gimme'

Third song of singer's summer trio of singles has arrived

It's been a busy summer for Beck, who's been working on two albums in addition to releasing stand-alone singles "Defriended" and "I Won't Be Long." Now, the singer has released "Gimme," the last song of a stand-alone trio of singles.

The new song finds Beck exploring a techy combination of xylophones and pulsing rhythms and features a bevy of distorted vocals throughout. It's available now as a double 12-inch vinyl that features an extended length on the B-side, while the other includes "two halves of a 30-minute extended mix of the track."

2013 has been a rather productive year for Beck, even if new music has been scarce. He's played a handful of one-off and festival dates, helped curate the Station to Station tour and reimagined David Bowie's "Sound and Vision" this past February.

'Mike WiLL Made It' Defends Miley Cyrus and Talks Signing to Interscope

mike & miley

Mike WiLL Made It premiered his latest single "23" on Hot 107.9 Atlanta earlier this week. He also took the time to announce he's now signed to Interscope Records and has his own label, Eardrumma Records. It's a big step for the Atlanta producer, but right now he's just focusing on growing his career and promoting his own label.

"23" will be included on Mike WiLL Made It's upcoming album Est. in 1989 Pt. 3. The song features appearances from Miley Cyrus, Juicy J, and Wiz Khalifa. On the song, Miley raps and sings the hook. It's obviously not their first collaboration, as Mike has played a big hand in Miley's forthcoming Bangerz album as executive producer. Plus, Mike is responsible for her hit single "We Can't Stop," too. We sat down with Mike WiLL Made It to ask about his response to all of the controversy surrounding Miley's VMA performance, what to expect from his new album, and why he chose to sign to Interscope.

You just announced that your label, Eardrumma Records, is signed to Interscope. What went into that decision?
I just feel like it was time to take things to the next level and help those who helped me. I feel like I’m in a good position right now and I can expand a lot of my ideas. I can’t make it all come from me, I can’t continue to be my manager, my everything. I can’t do all that anymore. EarDrumma was already a successful company but it’s time to make it into a real company, to have a staff, and to [help] those on who always helped me. I want to help them, bless them, and build my company.

The fact that anybody would say anything to Miley about rapping...the only reason they would say that is because she’s white. And I never knew you had to be black, white, Asian, or whatever to rap, I thought you had to just be talented.

The 10 Most James Franco Lines in James Franco’s New Novel

James Franco is an actor, director, screenwriter, and artist. Billed as “an intense, wild ride into the dark heart of celebrity,” James Franco’s novel Actors Anonymous—which comes out next month—is an intense, wild ride into the ego of James Franco. The book’s format ranges from essays to poetry to Wikipedia entries, and jumps between the perspectives of several actors in a fictional support group called “Actors Anonymous.”

Somehow Franco managed to wrangle blurbs from Gary Shteyngart, Amy Hempel, and David Shields, adding to the sense of the book as performance art. The novel is part meditation on the nature of fame, part self-back-pat—which is to say, exactly what you’d expect.

Lindsay Lohan is Dating Matt Nordgren

Out of rehab and living relatively drama free in New York City, (well, except for Dina Lohan's DUI) the latest on Lindsay Lohan is decidedly wholesome: she's dating handsome Texan football star Matt Nordgren.

Lohan first met Nordgren, 30, a former University of Texas football star who played one season with the Philadelphia Eagles, and then starred on the 2011 Bravo reality show Most Eligible Dallas, seven years ago.

While Nordgren has been linked to former The Bachelorette star ­Vienna Giardi and former The Hills star Audrina Patridge, he's has been with Lohan of late.

“We’ve hung out," he recently told Page Six. "But I have been a friend trying to support her for many years now.”

And it seems to be working.

"She's completely sober now," he added. "She's in a great place and working hard and meeting with all the right people."

It appears that he's one of them. The Dallas native is a a partner in his family's energy conservation firm Nordco, Inc. and has been good for her, according to one pal.

"She is very happy and very committed to staying sober," says the Lohan friend. "He drinks but not irresponsibly and not in front of her. He is close to her whole family."


well it's a definite upgrade for both of them, though, I wonder how Courtney feels? lol

Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Women Are More Than 'Sex Images'


Joseph Gordon-Levitt plays a porn-addicted jock in his new movie "Don Jon," but the actor is something of a feminist in real life. And his mom gets the credit.

Gordon-Levitt told George Stroumboulopoulos that his parents, and particularly his mother, taught him not to buy into the way women are often portrayed in movies, TV and advertising.

"My mom and dad are very much people who were active in the '60s and '70s in feminist movements as well as civil rights or anti-war movements, and I think they raised my brother and me to have some of those values and to think of women not just as sex images -- even though lots of images in the media are constantly saying that," Gordon-Levitt said.

Well you wouldn't know that from watching his latest film.... or maybe only 'hot women' are sex obects according to him? I am forreal concerned about his ego rn... seems to be out of control.

Jay Z and Beyoncé fired bodyguard after freaky incidents, before he died during a break in

The bodyguard to the stars who was killed by cops in Florida during an alleged break-in got fired from his job protecting Jay Z and Beyoncé due to his creepy sexual acts, Confidenti@l has exclusively learned.

Norman “Dutch Giant” Oosterbroek — who provided muscle to hip hop’s first family and celebs including Lady Gaga, Rihanna and even Nelson Mandela — forced his way into a neighbor’s mansion naked on Sept. 2, punched the resident and swallowed drugs, according to investigators. The 43-year-old died after Miami-Dade police shocked him with a Taser.

Oosterbroek’s life spiraled out of control in the past months after he lost his job looking out for Jay, Bey and their daughter, Blue Ivy. It all fell apart after the power couple discovered the hulking guard had hired the services of a prostitute while on duty for them in Las Vegas, a source tells us.

The duo also allegedly discovered photographic and video evidence showing Oosterbroek using the family's passports in a lewd act.

The story was first uncovered by a major print publication last year, which approached Jay Z and Beyoncé for comment. The couple then made a deal to ensure the story never saw the light of day, according to our source.

“Beyoncé and Jay Z were furious when they found out,” said the source. “They trusted Norman with their lives and then he went and did some pretty freaky things, and on video with a hooker. They were outraged.”

Once they found out about his behavior, the couple didn’t feel safe allowing Oosterbroek around their daughter, so they cut him loose, the source tells us.

“They really thought Norman was now a danger to Blue Ivy,” says the source. “From what I understand he was devastated, because a lot of people in the industry knew that he couldn’t be trusted and not to hire him.”

The 6-foot-5, 280-pound Oosterbroek suffered from depression after losing the job and was using drugs, says our source. He had been in and out of rehab for several years, according to the Miami Herald.

During the alleged Sept. 2 break-in, Miami-Dade Police say Oosterbroek swallowed an unknown white substance.

Before his ouster, Oosterbroek was known to be close to Jay Z and Beyoncé. Three years ago, he went above and beyond the line of duty when he broke the legs of a fan who dared rush the stage at a Jay Z concert in Washington, D.C.

Reps for Jay Z and Beyoncé didn’t get back to us.

I'm guessing this blind item was about this incident.

Holly Madison Marries Pasquale Rotella: See Her Wedding Dress, $500,000 Diamond Tiara

She looked just like a princess! Holly Madison's fairy tale wedding dreams came true Sept. 10 when she wed boyfriend of two years Pasquale Rotella at Disneyland in Anaheim, Calif. -- and only the new issue of Us Weekly, out now, has the exclusive photos from the special day.

To walk down the aisle, the Girls Next Door alum, 33, carried a bouquet of daisies and donned a custom-designed Greg Barnes gown plus a $500,000 diamond tiara crafted by Alan Friedman. (The "something old" was the lace on Madison's dramatic dress.) Madison and Insomniac Events founder Pasquale, 39, exchanged vows in front of 200 guests, with former Girls costars Bridget Marquardt and Laura Croft among the bridesmaids.

The biggest VIP at the bash? The couple's 6-month-old daughter Rainbow Aurora, who was on her best behavior for the special day. "She was my mini-bridesmaid! Rainbow was so good!" Madison tells Us.
After the ceremony, guests noshed on Bayou-inspired treats (crawfish fritters!) and much more in the Magic Kingdom's New Orleans Square, oohed and aahed over fireworks -- and even boarded a ride or two!

Jen, 44, is reportedly expecting her first baby, but she’s not jumping to announce her news. She is reportedly waiting to announce the news until she has passed those crucial first months.

“She is scared of having a miscarriage, given her age, so they are not saying anything until she is six months along,” an insider told Us Weekly.

Justin, 42, and Jen are happy in love and are thrilled for their news. “They’re extremely happy. This is the baby Jen always wanted,” the source said.

Jennifer has been spotted at parties drinking only water, reveals the mag. She has also been wearing looser fitting dresses with strategic rouching to her We’re The Millers premieres.

Miley Crashes Her Wrecking Ball Into the #1 Spot!

Miley Cyrus smashes her way to her first Billboard Hot 100 No. 1, as "Wrecking Ball" rockets 22-1 with top Streaming and Sales Gainer honors. The song knocks Katy Perry's "Roar" out of the top spot after two weeks.

Cyrus previously rose as high as No. 2 on the Hot 100 with two songs: prior single "We Can't Stop" and 2009's "Party in the U.S.A."

Let's run down all the numbers for this week's top 10.

The suggestive video for "Ball" made a record-breaking start, drawing 19.3 million global VEVO views in its first 24 hours following its Sept. 9 posting. With the Hot 100's streaming component encompassing U.S.-only views for VEVO videos on YouTube, among streams on other services, the song soars 21-1 on Streaming Songs with a 1,565% gain to 36.5 million streams in the chart's tracking week, according to Nielsen BDS. Of that sum 92% are from YouTube views.

"Ball" concurrently crowns the subscription services-based On-Demand Songs chart, vaulting 18-1 with a 275% increase to 2.8 million, the highest total in the chart's 18-month history.

Given the buzz surrounding "Ball" and its video, it's no surprise that the song charges 10-1 on Digital Songs with 477,000 downloads sold, according to Nielsen SoundScan. (It's her second Digital Songs No. 1, following "Party," which led for six weeks.) The sum is a new best for Cyrus, passing the 285,000 that "Party" sold over Christmas week 2009. It's also the second-best total this year: Perry's "Roar" opened with 557,000 four weeks ago.

With RCA Records having just begun promoting the song to radio last week, "Ball" is just getting rolling in airplay. It starts on Radio Songs at No. 59 with 21 million all-format audience impressions (up 327%), according to BDS. On Pop Songs, "Ball" bows at No. 35. (Extra bragging rights: While Cyrus was already one of three members of her family to have reached the Hot 100's top 10, she's the first to top the tally. Her dad Billy Ray climbed to No. 4 with "Achy Breaky Heart" in 1992 (four months before Miley was born) and brother Trace rose to No. 10 as part of Metro Station with "Shake It" in 2008.)

"Ball" soars to the Hot 100's summit with an almost two-to-one lead in overall chart points (up 700%) over Perry's "Roar" (down 10%) after the latter led the list the last two weeks. Still, "Roar" (1-2) claims the Hot 100's Airplay Gainer award for a third consecutive week. It holds at No. 2 on Radio Songs with a 20% lift to 148 million.

Test Audiences Doing Their Best to Ruin 'August: Osage County'

The film adaptation of the blistering, critically-acclaimed play August: Osage County is set to open in U.S. theaters on Dec. 25, but the ending of the movie is still up in the air.

The LA Times reported that the ending seen by Toronto International Film Festival audiences earlier this month was there, in part, because earlier test audiences had been angered by the film's initial, less hopeful final scene. Though all parties have been showing their polite and collaborative faces to the press, rumor has it that the ending issue has divided into two, high-powered camps. In this corner, fighting for the original denouement: director John Wells and playwright/screenwriter Tracy Letts. In this corner, pressing for the cushier, more audience-friendly finale: Harvey Weinstein and Miramax.

[Spoilers about the ending]The play, a black comedy/drama about the flawed and combative Weston family, ends with the family's matriarch (Meryl Streep in this year's film version) sitting on a staircase calling for her young housekeeper, having pushed her family away with her monstrous behavior. TIFF audiences saw a different finale, where the staircase tableau is followed by a shot of Julia Roberts's character Barbara driving away from her childhood home. In the latter version, the shift in attention allows the audience to leave feeling hopeful for Barbara that she'll escape the influence her toxic mother has held over her life. But fans of the play would argue that the original ending is more powerful and true to the dark mood of the story.

The August: Osage County situation calls into question (and not for the first time) the power that test audiences and focus groups wield. To insist that a piece of work about a family as damaged and violent as the Westons have a "happy" ending feeds the myth that American audiences can't handle difficult material. And focus groups are not traditional audiences, in that they've been brought to a theater for a specific purpose and asked to commit to an opinion about a movie before they've had time to sleep on it, talk about it over coffee, or digest it in any way. Audiences certainly came in droves to see the stage version of the story, which, incidentally won both the Pulitzer Prize and a Tony Award, among heaps of other accolades. Does a movie have to end with a kiss and smile and a song to make us glad that we've seen it? Can't we just feel good about August: Osage County because it's a brutally funny, often surprising film with powerhouse performances?

Liam Hemsworth Caught Kissing Eiza González a Day After Miley Split Reveal

Quite often in fact, what happens in Las Vegas does not just stay there.

Liam Hemsworth was spotted kissing singer-actress Eiza González at her apartment complex in Beverly Hills on Tuesday, just a few days after going clubbing with her in Vegas—and barely a day after it was confirmed that he and Miley Cyrus had called off their 15-month engagement.

While a source said yesterday that Eiza and Liam had "just met," most likely in Vegas, it appears that they really hit it off.

We're told that Liam stopped by her place just after 3:30 p.m. to give her a piece of luggage. Judging by her shorts and sports bra combo, Eiza may have been working out when her visitor arrived.

Liam was only there for about five minutes but they both looked very happy together, chatting closely before the kissing started.

Eiza then smiled and waved goodbye as Liam drove off. So, these two are getting along...

Five (Three) Super Heroine Movies that Could Work

Super hero movies are becoming pretty common place these days, which begs the quest: Why aren’t super heroine movies bigger? I mean it’s great that we get to see some of our favorite heroes one the big screen, but why do the boys get to have all the fun? Personally, I think there would be a huge demand for a comic book movie with a strong female lead (hell, just look how successful The Hunger Games were). More importantly though, the absence of female super heroes is only going to add to the idea that comic books are a boys club, and with all the recent anger on the internet, it would go a long way to make a GOOD female super hero movie (ie: not Catwoman or Elektra). So, I sat down and put on my thinking cap in order to try to come up with a list of female comic book characters that could be introduced into the current comic movie universe successfully in their own feature film (or at least a feature film focusing primarily on them). For the most part, I tried to stay away from already established super heroines, so that the universes could expand even more. Of course, I’d love to hear your thoughts and opinions as well, so make sure you comment below if you think of other super heroines that should get a shot at the big screen.

Zendaya: Four Tracks You Have To Hear

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Fans may have gotten to know Zendaya Coleman on her hit Disney TV series, "Shake It Up," or last season's "Dancing with the Stars," but now she's reintroducing herself on her debut album.

Zendaya, released on Tuesday (September 17), shows maturity well beyond her 17 years, as the 11-track album tackles issues of love and heartbreak over a mix of pop and R&B sounds.

I'm kind of creating my own music and I'm kind of creating my own zone, my own lane as an artist. I want to do rhythmic pop," Coleman told MTV News back in June while she was recording the album. "It's not necessarily your average pop song. It has some kind of urban edge, some kind of more hip-hop-ish tones to it that kind of edge it up and do something a little different so it's not just your stereotypical pop music."

With vocals and sounds comparable to Jennifer Lopez and Ciara, Zendaya follows in the footsteps of Selena Gomez, Demi Lovato and Miley Cyrus, who have all made the transition from Disney star to pop star. And she knows that having a strong debut is important in making this transition successful.

"I feel that it's really important that when you're young, you have to come out even stronger than anyone else, and you have to work extra hard to prove yourself and prove you're worthy of being listened to," she said. "So I try to create quality music."

The 65th Emmy® Awards will pay tribute to the 50th Anniversary of two events that changed the face of our world during the live telecast on Sunday, September 22, (8:00 PM EDT / 5:00 PM PDT) on the CBS Television Network.

Six-time Emmy nominee Don Cheadle will present a moving tribute to television's role in the assassination coverage of President John F. Kennedy on November 22, 1963 and then connect that event to the performance of the Beatles on the Ed Sullivan show merely 80 days later on February 9, 1964. Both of these historic events are often mentioned together as two of the most significant television moments in history, and the segment on the Emmy telecast will explore the tie between them.

Following Cheadle's presentation, six-time Grammy® Award winning artist & GLOBAL ICON Carrie Underwood will honor the music of the era with a special performance.

Cher rips Miley's dancing, song, physique, oral hygiene


Cher has a few choice words about the Miley Cyrus twerk-a-thon on MTV's Video Music Awards.

The hyperactive, sexual performance with Robin Thicke was "so bad," says the famously outspoken diva, 67.

But not for reasons that riled most skittish viewers. Cher, no stranger to controversy and scandal, didn't find any shock value in Cyrus' tongue-wagging, booty-thumping display.

"I'm not old-fashioned,"
Cher tells USA TODAY in an interview to promote new album Closer to the Truth. "She could have come out naked, and if she'd just rocked the house, I would have said, 'You go, girl.' It just wasn't done well. She can't dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn't great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don't stick out your tongue if it's coated."

The performance seemed ill-conceived, Cher adds.

"If you're going to go that far, then think about it before you do it," she says.

Cher made waves for her 1989 If I Could Turn Back Time video shot before sailors aboard the USS Missouri battleship. She wore a body stocking over a skimpy swimsuit that revealed her tattooed bottom.


Creep Cop Peeked at Whitney Houston's Dead body, Made Inappropriate Comments

After Houston's corpse was found in a hotel bathtub last year, a police sergeant pulled the sheet covering her naked body 'below the pubic region' and commented on her looks, ex-SWAT officer Brian Weir says in a claim. Weir says he suffered professionally after he complained about the incident.

A Beverly Hills police sergeant snuck a peek at Whitney Houston's naked dead body and made "inappropriate" comments about the pop icon after she was pulled lifeless from a hotel bathtub last year, a claim filed by a former Beverly Hills SWAT supervisor states.

"Damn, she's still looking good, huh?" the sergeant allegedly said after lifting a sheet covering Houston's corpse.

The sergeant knelt beside Houston to remove the sheet "to an area below the pubic region," and also said she "looked attractive for a woman of her age and current state," the legal claim filed by ex-SWAT officer Brian Weir and obtained by the Los Angeles Times states.

Ariana Grande: 'Mariah Carey comparison is a blessing'

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Ariana Grande has responded to being compared by many to Mariah Carey.

The 'Baby I' singer was asked by Rolling Stone how it feels for her vocal range to be favourably compared to that of a legendary diva like Carey.

"It's a blessing to get the comparison. When you look at 'The Way' it's obvious, but I'm not worried about it," Grande said.

She continued: "It's a massive compliment; she's the greatest singer in the world, like literally, [she's in] The Guinness Book of World Records.

"It's an incredible compliment but it doesn't worry me, because when you listen to my album as a whole, you get to know me."

Grande also insisted that she feels no pressure to have a sexually suggestive image like many of today's most popular artists.

"I don't feel much pressure to fit in. I never have," she said. "I've always just wanted to do my thing. I have really good friends and good family and if I don't fit in somewhere else, I fit in at home.

Gaga goes on a nonsensical Twitter rant defending 'Applause'

Let it out Gaga!

Lady Gaga had some venting to do today, so naturally the pop star turned to Twitter to rant.

Mother Monster shared her feelings on what it means to be a celebrity in today's world and how she couldn't exist without her fan base.

But the singer also wanted to explain to her devotees why her first single from Artpop is so important to her.

"'Applause' is a very meaningful song to me, because it addresses what many think of 'celebrities' today, that we ‘do it' for the attention," she said in the opening of her multitweet message. "But some of us are 'artists' in this group called 'celebrity,' & what we create doesn't live on unless theres an audience to remember it."

But Gaga was quick to explain that she isn't solely after everyone's attention or the limelight, she just wants to share her work with people in the hopes that they enjoy it.

"So I may need your attention at first, so I can sing you my song. But it's the 'Applause' after that let me know if I've entertained you."

And don't worry Little Monsters, she didn't end her lengthy Twitter spree there.

"Entertainment makes people happy, I live for the 'Applause,' to know I've spread that. I live to hear you cheer, to just be a part of that," she said.

"I believe in show business. The 'Applause' is what breeds that thing that I love. When I know I've made you happy. When I know it was good."


Kelly Clarkson Goes Acoustic On Honda Civic Tour

Kelly Clarkson recently shared a professional recording of her heart-wrenching rendition of "Don't You Wanna Stay," her monster country smash with Jason Aldean, that she's serenaded audiences with on the 2013 Honda Civic Tour with Maroon 5. The 31-year-old singer recently divulged that she's nearing completion on her first country album and working hard on a forthcoming pop album, both due out in 2014.

Clarkson's band director recently tweeted this picture of her recording vocals for a new song in her dressing room before a show in West Palm Beach.

Up next, Clarkson will release "Wrapped in Red" on Oct. 29. The 12-song-set will feature duets with Ronnie Dunn, Trisha Yearwood and Reba McEntire, a cover of Imogen Heap's "Just For Now" and five new original songs--including the first single "Underneath the Tree," co-written with "Stronger" hit-maker Greg Kurstin.


iPhone 5s, 5c, iOS 7 reviews are in: The good, the bad, and the ugly

Summary: The critics had their time with the latest iPhone devices and software, and the reviews are out. Here's a roundup of what the tech experts and pundits are saying.


The reviews for the latest Apple devices and software are out.

Reviewers, journalists, and critics alike have ripped the foundations and fundamentals of Apple's latest creations — the premium iPhone 5s, the low-cost iPhone 5c, and the next-generation iOS 7 software — and given their verdict.

Here are snippets of some of the other reviews from around the Web late on Tuesday:

iPhone 5s

AnandTech's Anand Lal Shimpi gave a deep and thorough 13-page review of the premium Apple smartphone. The highest praise fell on the hardware features, notably the Apple A7 processor and M7 motion controller, which was described as "futureproof." But some criticism fell in what Apple missed out, like as a slightly larger display, which in his view had "room for another sweet spot above 4-inches."

Madonna Gun Photo: Taking it Too Far?

While the singer is known for constantly pushing boundaries of decency, she’s receiving tons of backlash for her latest stunt promoting her short film.
The upcoming endeavor, which has been dubbed SecretProjectRevolution, is said to be released next week in its entirety. Check out the photo in question:

The scene shows Madonna pointing a gun at the floor, with bodies strewn around a living room, including one man who appears to be on top of a piano.
Madonna is seen in a pair of fishnet tights, a black leotard and wearing a black leather glove as she clutches the revolver tightly. What is this for, exactly?
According to the press release, the SecretProjectRevolution is aiming to “further freedom of expression and protect persecution.” So, there’s that.
Madonna also said in a statement:
“My goal is to show by the example of SecretProjectRevolution my creative commitment to inspire change in the world through artistic expression.”
“I hope my film and other submissions to Art For Freedom will be a call-to-action and give people a place to voice their own creative expression.”

This she says, will “help fight oppression, intolerance and complacency.”
Madonna has never been accused of being intolerant or complacent, but some observers may be left with a bad taste in their mouths after this.
Critics have panned her decision to release a violent and graphic image in general, let alone so soon after the massacre that took place on Monday.
But this isn’t a first for her. During last year’s MDNA concert tour, she was highly criticized for her use of fake guns throughout the performance.
In August of last year, Madonna responded to the criticism:
“My show/Is a journey/The journey of a soul from darkness to light/It is part cinematic musical theater/Part spectacle and sometimes intimate Performance art.”
“I do not condone violence or the use of guns. Rather they are symbols of wanting to appear strong and wanting to find a way to stop feelings that I find hurtful or damaging.”
“In my case I want to stop the lies and hypocrisy of the church.”
She decried “the intolerance of narrow minded cultures and societies I have experienced throughout my life and in some cases the pain I have felt from having my heart broken.”


Former NFL Player Brian Holloway Asks For Justice After 300 Teens Break In Home For Party

A former NFL player’s home was broken into and thoroughly trashed by teenagers in upstate New York over Labor Day weekend.

Brian Holloway, a three time all-pro lineman for the New England Patriots, arrived to his second home in Stephentown on Tuesday to find it covered in urine, graffiti and empty cups and booze bottles.

While he and his family were in Florida, the area high schoolers broke into the $1.5 million house and then with the help of Twitter quickly attracted hundreds of their peers from miles around.

Now Holloway, himself a father of 8, has used the same social media methods to gather 100 of the kids’ names and posted their Twitter messages and photos to a site called HelpMeSave300.

‘So my apologies, I don’t really know what else to do,’ writes Holloway on ‘ It’s been quite a gut shot dealing with all of this. I guess I’m still in shock.’

Holloway decided to channel the shock into action.

Seth MacFarlane’s ‘Dads’ Is Bad–But Could It Have Been Worse?

The rollout last month of screeners for fratcom auteur Seth MacFarlane’s new series “Dads” prompted television writers to ask some blunt rhetorical questions.

Over at Mother Jones, Asawin Suebsaeng wondered, “Is ‘Dads’ the Year’s Most Racist Sitcom?” At Entertainment Weekly, critic Melissa Maerz offered up a similar inquiry: “So, just how racist is Fox’s ‘Dads’?” (The show has a 16 out of 100 on Metacritic which means “Overwhelming dislike.”)

Well, I’ve watched the two available episodes of the show, spent the past month speaking to individuals involved with the production, and even obtained a copy of the original script for the pilot, which airs tonight, and I now feel confident in responding to Suebsaeng and Maerz as follows: “Yes,” and “Very.”

Lorde turned down offer to go on tour with Katy Perry

Rising Kiwi songstress Lorde has admitted she turned down a money-spinning slot opening for Katy Perry on an upcoming world tour.

Lorde, the 16-year-old North Shore singer hitting it big in the US with her smash single Royals, confirmed to TV3 show 3rd Degree tonight that she turned down Perry's offer because it didn't feel right.

"I have a pretty good gut instinct for stuff and if it feels right I'll do it," Lorde told journalist Samantha Hayes. "I think she's really talented."

In her first New Zealand television interview, it was also revealed that Lorde - who was signed at the age of 12 - was initially expected to take things much slower, including releasing a covers album as her debut.

NYPD shuts down "PERSON OF INTEREST" set after fake gun battle; filming permit revoked

NYPD dropped the hammer on the CBS drama "Person of Interest" today -- shutting down filming of the show after locals called cops thinking a scripted gun battle was the real deal ... TMZ has learned.

According to witnesses ... some NYC residents saw people with guns near 47th Street and 5th Avenue today, and believed they were about to get caught in a shootout.

We're told officers (real ones) responded ... and discovered the action was all part of the TV crime drama -- and the firearms were just props, but producers were still guilty of a major no-no. All gun scenes are supposed to be filmed with NYPD supervisors on the set -- and since this wasn't, cops shut down the production.

The Mayor's Office confirmed the show's permit was revoked -- which forced producers to immediately stop shooting for the day.
Sources connected to the production company tell us the whole mess was a "scheduling error" -- they started shooting earlier than planned ... before NYPD monitors arrived. We're told no shots were fired.

Also, the incident didn't affect indoor scenes ... which continued uninterrupted. We're told filming will resume again ASAP.

Ciara Preps “Overdose” As Next Single, Unveils Cover Artwork

Ciara‘s highly excellent self-titled album may have failed to make as much of an impact as everyone hoped this summer, even off the success of “Body Party,” but there’s hope yet: She’s prepping the release of one of the LP’s very best tracks as her next single, and this one actually has a fighting shot on mainstream radio.

Yes, the searingly great “Overdose” has been selected as CiCi’s latest, and it’s a monster: Probably the purest pop track on the album, the fizzy pop tune made buzz when it leaked in half-finished form last year and sounds even better in its final version. If there is any justice on the charts (although we all know there isn’t), it’ll be a radio smash.

Ciara also unveiled the cover artwork for the song, which is typically provocative. Par for the course for the sultriest chick in the game.

The song impacts radio on October 14. Prepare your body for yet another party.

Jon Gosselin: From TV Stardom to Waiting Tables

Jon Gosselin admits he was "nervous" when he began waiting tables at the Black Dog restaurant in Beckersville, Pa.

Just a few years ago, he'd been on top of the world, starring in the top-rated TLC reality show, Jon & Kate Plus 8 and co-writing a New York Times bestseller, but a messy divorce in 2009 ended all that.

While his ex-wife Kate and their eight kids remained in the couple's $1.3 million Pennsylvania home, he moved out, and admits in a new interview with Entertainment Tonight that it's been "next to near impossible to find work."

Now Gosselin's gone from partying on yachts in the south of France to living in a cabin in the woods with no internet and no TV. And after hitting rock bottom "like 20 times," he took a job as a waiter.

"At first I was nervous because I was like, 'How are people going to react?' " Gosselin, 36, admits. "But then I'm thinking, 'Well, it's fun and I get to talk to people.' And they technically already know me … they're like, 'Are you the guy?' I'm like, 'Yeah, I'm the guy.' "

Gosselin – who's being sued by his ex-wife, Kate, for allegedly hacking into her computer and phone to gather material for a 2012 tell-all Kate Gosselin: How She Fooled the World – insists that he isn't struggling to make ends meet and while he's not partying like a rock star anymore, he has no regrets.

"I don't regret anything," he says. "You learn from your mistakes. That's what builds you to who you are today."

Kris Jenner Lands Nasty Review On eBay: ‘Received Item Dirty With Makeup On It And Fingerprints All

Kris Jenner sells used items on eBay but recently she’s received a few less-than-positive feedback notes regarding her products, including one that claims to have received “dirty” sunglasses with “makeup on it and fingerprints all over it,” is exclusively reporting.


The buyer purchased Tom Ford black frame oval sunglasses described as “pre-owned” for $202.50 after out-bidding 20 other people.

“Kris’s own black oval sunglasses from Tom Ford. These classic oval sunglasses with gold accents are a must-have for the summer,” the ad described the shades for auction. “Gold T accent on sides with miniature Tom Ford plate. Black gradient lenses with purple tint. Stand out from the crowd with these fashionable sunglasses!”

And standout, they did — because buyer cbry6010 wrote Kris’ first negative feedback review on eBay on August 29.

The same buyer then left a “neutral” review that same day on a halter top purchased in Jenner’s site.“Received item dirty with makeup on it and fingerprints all over it,” the note read.

“Not Worth what I paid Looks Cheap,” they wrote.

Another buyer also left a neutral review last week alleging that the description of the item and what they actual received were two very different things.

Jenner isn’t the only one in the Kardashian clan with eBay pages selling used items — Khloe Kardashian also has a site selling used items like lingerie and sports bras, but unlike her mother, has no negative reviews in the last 12 months and only one neutral review.“There was more wrong with this blouse than the description implied,” buyer amysaprincess wrote.

Harry Styles Named Least Engaging Celebrity Tweeter


Harry Styles may amuse his 16.5million Twitter followers with his often bizarre and always hilarious posts but according to a new study, the One Direction hottie is actually the least engaging celebrity tweeter!

A survey from Fickle has shown that Harry only replies to one tweet per 333,333 sent to him, while Peter Jones (of Dragons Den fame) replies to one per every 141.

To be fair it would take Harry all day every day to reply to the thousands of tweets he gets every day whilst we're betting Peter's 818,000 followers are a lot easier to manage.

Other celebs named and shamed in the least engaging list include Miley Cyrus who only replies to one tweet per 188,500 sent to her, Justin Bieber with one per 166,666 and Hazza's ex Taylor Swift with one per 28,333.

Harry's bandmates Niall Horan and Liam Payne also make the list, whilst the most engaging include fashionista Alexa Chung who replies to a pretty impressive one per 333 tweets and self-confessed Twitter addict Phillip Schofield with one per 833.

MGMT reveal new video for 'Cool Song No 2'

MGMT's latest video plays like an episode of "Breaking Bad." From sun-drenched desert shots to an assembly line of drug manufacturing, "Cool Song No. 2" feels like an ode to the expiring meth series -- or to gritty TV dramas in general, considering the video stars Michael K. Williams, better known as Omar on "The Wire" and Chalky White on "Boardwalk Empire."

The psychedelic-rock band's signature bizarreness is on full display in "Cool Song," which ends with Williams' plant hunter falling for a man mutated by the drugs Williams is responsible for synthesizing.

Watch the trippy video, directed by Isaiah Seret (Raphael Saadiq, Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros) and beautifully shot by cinematographer Bradford Young ("Pariah," "Ain't Them Bodies Saints"), above.

4-Minutes Of Footage From Jesse L. Martin's Marvin Gaye Biopic

In June,it was revealed publicly that shooting had been suspended on Julien Temple’s Marvin Gaye biopic, Sexual Healing, starring Jesse L. Martin (as Gaye), S. Epatha Merkerson (as Marvin’s Gaye’s mother, Alberta Cooper Gay), and Dwight Henry (as Marvin Gaye’s father, Marvin Gay, Sr.).

It was reported that there was a possibility that the film might not see completion (at least, not anytime soon), because Focus Features International, the company that picked up the project initially, and shopped it at the Cannes Film Festival last May, had pulled out.

Crew members were said to have not yet been paid fully for their work on the film, with one of the film's producers, Jimmy De Brabant, telling ScreenDaily that there was apparently a cash flow problem with the American investor backing the film; although he added that the funding that was promised by this investor had not yet arrived, but emphasized patience with the film's cast and crew, suggesting that the money was indeed coming.

At the time, it was said that about 70% of the film had been shot. It's still not clear to me where the project stands - whether the financing eventually did come, or if shooting is still in Limbo.

The film is set in the early 1980s, and focuses on the making of the Midnight Love album, while Gaye was living in Belgium - a drug addict, considered something of a has-been at the time.


I hate to say it, but it looks very straight to DVD. Might look better if/when they complete it.

Grizzly Bear announce expanded reissue of Shields; hear the demo of the non-album track "Will Calls"

Every Grizzly Bear song that makes it to record has been so intensely labored-over, so intricately and fussily arranged, that they’re the rare band where you might actually want to hear the rough versions of their songs. And after the avalanche of goodwill that surrounded last year’s album Shields, they’re now getting ready to release an expanded edition full of demos and B-sides. In a couple of months, they’ll release Shields Expanded, a double-CD and 18-track digital album, and it’ll have the original album as well as a bunch of B-sides, remixes, and demos that the band recorded in Marfa, Texas before tracking the album proper. (You’ll also be able to get the extra tracks, on their own, as a 12″ EP or download.) One of the Marfa demos is of a non-album track called “Will Calls.” It’s warm, organic, and seven minutes long, and you can hear it below.

Avicii's 'True': What the Critics Are Saying


The DJ's debut album hit shelves on Sept. 17.

DJ Tim Bergling, better known as Avicii -- whose 2011 single "Levels" was an international phenomenon -- continues to push the boundaries of EDM in his debut album, True, out Tuesday, Sept. 17.

In True, the spinner from Stockholm crosses genres as disparate as bluegrass and house to bring audiences new beats that are as unique as they are danceable. True features the hit track "Wake Me Up!" which rose to the No. 5 spot on Billboard's Hot 100 list. Avicii teamed up with a diverse crowd of popular artists including Adam Lambert and Imagine Dragons' Dan Reynolds to produce an album with wide-ranging appeal.

Before Avicii's international breakthrough, he was just a 20-year-old Swede with a synthesizer, producing tracks his home. Now, with an enormous following and a fresh album, Avicii has become a face for musical innovation within the EDM community.

The atmosphere surrounding Avicii is electric and critics are abuzz:

Billboard's Kerri Mason points to the nuances in Avicii's style as the markers of his appeal. "Instead of pop stars dialing in towlines over prefab beats, [True is] based on musicians writing songs, together in a room," Mason writes. "That small distinctions, that kernel of truth, could be what catapults Avicii from superstar DJ to flat-out superstar."

First Set Pics from David Ayer's WWII Drama "Fury"

Filming has only just begun on David Ayer’s WWII tank action thriller “Fury,” but the director has already taken to Twitter to share the first official images from the film. Brad Pitt leads the cast that is rounded out by Michael Pena, Jon Bernthal, Shia LaBeouf and Logan Lerman.

Set in 1945 as the Nazi regime collapses, Pitt plays the Commander of a Sherman tank who leads a five-man crew in a battle against desperate German troops. All five leads are pictured in the surprisingly stylized photo Ayer shared today, lounging on their tank GQ style. Yesterday, Ayer also shared an in-camera close-up image of Lerman, looking a lot more bloody and war-ridden and certainly more grownup than he’s looked in any of his other roles.

Filming on “Fury” is now underway and a November 14, 2014 (read: very Oscar friendly) release is planned.

i'm excited. why can't they recast shia tho

Cher Is "Ashamed" of Miley Cyrus Diss, Calls "Fellow Artist" a "Brilliant" Performer


Cher's no hater, y'all!

The 67-year-old icon created some controversy when she admitted to E! News she wasn't crazy about Miley Cyrus' twerktastic performance at the 2013 MTV VMAs. But on Wednesday, Sept. 17, Cher took to Twitter to clear up what she meant when she said Miley should "do better."

"Re:Miley S....I Think What I Think,but Having Said That...I'm a little ashamed (which is Total bulls--t,how can u B a LITTLE ASHAMED) that…I didn't keep my big Opinionated mouth Shut," Cher wrote.

"WTF is MY PROBLEM ! I'm 2 Old to fall prey 2'Tell us, Oh wise 1,What did YOU think of M.S ? '" she continued. "What I should have said,"I didn't like it that much,but she's Pushing The Envelope,being an ARTIST ! She's Talented,& DIDNT COMMIT A FELONY"

"But somehow my ego had 2 get ITS 2 CENTS IN! MY BIG ASS 'BAD',I DIDNT SUPPORT A FELLOW ARTIST," she tweeted. "TRUTHFULLY SHE WAS Fkng BRILLIANT..CAUSE...WE'RE STILL TALKING ABOUT IT. Ps this is Not an apology 4 what I Thought,its a Reminder,that if I don't practice my principles,I loose Them." (BTW, grammar snobs, don't get your latex lingerie in a bunch over any typos or misspellings here, or as Cher tweeted to one detractor, "FOR THE LOVE OF GOD, GET YOUR FKNG PRIORITIES STRAIGHT ! PULL UP YOUR BIG GIRL G-STRING & SAY I CAN BEAR IT IF CHER CANT SPELL.")

Glad that's cleared up. Now the Queen of Twitter and the Queen of Twerk can be BFFs, OK? They both have albums out in October, and Cher might could teach Miley a think or two about believing in life after love--and broken engagements.


Chris Hemsworth: Nude scenes in 'Rush' were "intimidating"

In an interview with E!, 30-year-old hunky Aussie actor is talking about stripping down and getting naked in the first 10 minutes of his new racing flick Rush.

"I remember reading the script going, 'I wonder if that will stay in there?'" Hemsworth told E! News of the nude scene while at the Toronto International Film Festival. "And I said to [director] Ron [Howard], 'What's the rating on the film and where is it going to sit?' We shot it, yeah, and it's in there."

But Hemsworth, who plays Formula 1 racer James Hunt in the film, wasn't too nervous about the sexy scene. "I've been training a lot anyway but it's still pretty awkward," he smiled. "It's more intimidating than the driving scenes...a hundred people standing around and cameras and, 'Quick! Get your gear off.'"

He also says he hasn't heard anything about doing a sequel to his and Stewart's 2012 Huntsman flick. "I don't know," he dished. "If there's a hunger for another one. I had a great time making the film. I'm not sure what they plan on doing. I'm kind of booked up in Avengers [2], we do Avengers next year and that kind of takes up most of the year. And then press for Thor [2] this year and it just depends when we can squeeze it in. It's getting kind of narrower and narrower."


Thank you for this gift, Lordt
