Ratchet Is Dead: Inside the Mind of a Miley Cyrus Stylist


If she had been in charge, there’s one thing Los Angeles stylist Lisa Katnic would have added to the instantly infamous Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke VMA performance she helped conceive: more twerking shots. MTV viewers “didn’t really get to see [seven-foot-tall burlesque dancer] Amazon Ashley’s butt twerking — which is an amazing sight,” Katnic regretfully informs me. “I feel bad for people who had to watch the performance on-camera. It was a spectacle in person.”

Rihanna confesses she hasn’t had sex in ages

b9379502263f11e383e622000a1fb86d_7

Is this evidence that the four horsemen might be saddling up? Here’s a sentence I never thought I’d utter: Rihanna is quitting partying.

And the risqué Diamonds star has confessed that she pretty much never gets any bedroom action these days either. The provocative star, 25, claims she no longer fancies hitting the club scene because it’s “boring”.

“Recently I’ve become a square,” she says.

“I hate partying. I don’t know if it’s my heels – I don’t like standing up in my heels for hours. I don’t know if it’s that, but I’ve been so bored of it.”

Could this be the same woman who just this week regaled her Twitter followers with the (very) ­intimate X-rated details of a live sex show she attended in Phuket, Thailand?

“I don’t know if it’s because it’s the same music every night – maybe we need some more DJs,” she adds – which must be music to the ears of her dance floor superstar chums David Guetta and Calvin Harris.

However, perhaps the problem is too much of a good thing...

Last year, Rihanna was pictured out on average once every three nights.

“I love what I do and I’ve got a lot to celebrate,” she continues.

“So you’ll catch me celebrating every once in a while, because I work hard.”

But quizzed by Alan Carr on the 100th edition of Chatty Man tomorrow night, Chris Brown’s raunchy ex seems to say that cutting down on her nights out has left her a little lonely as she hasn’t had sex for quite a while.

She tells him: “I am such a bootleg rock star, I do nothing, literally. I’m embarrassed to say that actually. That’s so disgusting. That’s f****** pathetic.”

She adds: “I tell you, I’m a bit of a square recently. Don’t feel bad for me, I’m good.”

Miley Cyrus Considered Breaking Up With Liam Hemsworth in February



Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth didn't announce the end of their engagement until Sept. 16, but the former couple had been at odds for many months. Covering the October issue of Fashion, the single singer says that a new song, "Drive," is about the hardships they faced earlier this year.

"I wrote it while I was working on Valentine's Day—emotionally it was such a hard time," she recalls. "It is about needing to leave someone but not really wanting to completely cut yourself off from the relationship. It's a time when you want to leave but you can't. It's also about moving on."

The song will appear on Cyrus' Bangerz album, which drops Oct. 8.

Paul Wesley & Phoebe Tonkin: New Couple Alert?



The former Vampire Diaries co-stars were reportedly spotted getting cozy at an L.A. nightclub last weekend.

“[They were] on a double date with Ben McKenzie and Shelley Hennig,” a source told the mag. “It looked like Paul and Phoebe might have set Ben up with Shelley — seemed like a first date.”

If you remember, Ben and Paul met on set of The O.C., while Shelley and Phoebe co-starred on The Secret Circle together.

“Paul and Phoebe were 100% romantic,” the source added. “They were across the table from Ben all cozied up on the couch kissing each other. She had her head on his chest.”

A few months ago, Paul and wife Torrey DeVitto, who has also appeared on The Vampire Diaries, announced their plans to divorce.

Phoebe is now a regular on the spin-off The Originals.

Seth Rogen Hosts A Sausage Party + Jason Segel Steals Maple Syrup



Way back when in 2010, we revealed that Seth Rogen was planning a flick called “Sausage Party,” (then called "Sausage Fest") and while that sounds like the kind of thing Seth Rogen just says, it has become clear that “Sausage Party” was more than an idle fancy over the past couple of years. It has a concept—it's an R-rated animated movie about a talking sausage who, with his other supermarket produce buddies, has to get back onto the shelves before Independence Day's BBQs hit—and it has actors—the voices of Rogen, frequent collaborator Jonah Hill and long-time voice actor Conrad Vernon. What it didn't have was the funding to give it the go-ahead...

Britney Spears' Manager Larry Rudolph on Vegas Residency Ticket Sales, Lip-Syncing and New Album

"I really think of this is Britney's "Ray of Light" album -- it's kind of like that in a lot of ways."

"It's a new chapter in the Britney Spears saga," says her manager Larry Rudolph, who's standing outside of a rehearsal studio at CenterStaging in Burbank, Calif.

It's a typically sunny Los Angeles morning and dozens of scantily clad dancers have flocked to Studio 10 to audition for Spears' upcoming residency show at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas.

"It started off at 600 and now we're down to 28," Rudolph tells Billboard, adding that 14 dancers total will be chosen for the two-year show, titled "Britney Spears: Piece of Me." "Britney is coming today and she'll be making the final selection."

Indeed, Spears' camp is in full residency mode as the Dec. 27 opening date quickly approaches. The singer's approximately 90-minute performances will take place inside a 4,600-capacity planetarium-like theater with traditional seating, a dance floor, private tables and bottle service. The Baz Halpin-directed show will feature 21 of Spears' greatest hits and new music from her as-yet-untitled eighth studio album, due Dec. 3. In addition to 14 dancers, the concerts will also feature a four-piece band and state-of-the-art visuals. She's slated to perform 50 shows per year in 2014 and 2015.

Lorde's "Pure Heroine" LEAKS + stream the album @ VH1



Are you tired of waiting for VH1′s You Oughta Know artist Lorde‘s debut album, Pure Heroine, to come out?!? The album officially drops on September 30, but starting today you can listen to the exclusive album stream right here on VH1.com.

You can pre-order Pure Heroine now and you’ll receive an exclusive Lorde/VH1 folio. The embossed folio includes a series of exclusive prints showcasing the album’s lyrics and photos.

When we spoke with Lorde last month, she was very excited for her first full-length album to hit the streets. ”I just feel that it’s kind of a more mature album,” the 16-year-old pop star confessed. “When I wrote [The Love Club] E.P. I was 15 and now I’m going to be 17 in a couple of months, so it’s more mature.”

She also described some of the songs as being more “intimate” and confessed that musically she thinks Pure Heroine is beyond The Love Club because she and her producer “learned how to make beats…like [we] just got way better at it.”

Chris Hemsworth Did A Workshop With Tom Hiddleston To Further Intensify Their On-Screen Relationship



Chris Hemsworth has revealed that director Alan Taylor encouraged him and Tom Hiddleston to workshop Thor & Loki scenes to get the best out of that relationship.

Hemsworth and Hiddleston are back as brothers Thor and Loki in "Thor: The Dark World"; the third movie that they have done together.

And Taylor used the familiarity between the two actors to really work on and develop one of the key relationships in the film.

Speaking to Empire the actor said: "We pulled that relationship apart, I think. More than on anything that I have ever worked on, and it was for the best, I think. I think where we got to was the best version of it. It’s just a matter of me and Tom throwing lines around and then talking about how we react with out siblings and try to infuse some of that."

"Thor: The Dark World" will be the first time that we have seen Hemsworth take on the title character since the success of The Avengers last summer.

Taylor has taken over the director's chair from Kenneth Branagh and he revealed that week that there is going to be a more historic look and feel to the new film.

Thor: The Dark World will be released on 30th October.

Law & Order: UK Renewed for Season 8



U.K. TV giant ITV said Thursday it has ordered season eight of Law & Order: UK, starring Bradley Walsh, Georgia Taylor, Paterson Joseph and Dominic Rowan.

The show from the Kudos banner of 21st Century Fox's Elisabeth Murdoch-led Shine Group is based on the U.S. hit franchise from Dick Wolf.

Filming of the latest eight-episode series will begin in London next month and air on ITV next year.

Law & Order has been one of the most successful brands in U.S. primetime TV "and has become a firm favorite with the ITV audience since first broadcasting in 2009," ITV highlighted.

Season seven aired earlier this year and won its time slot on every occasion. It beat out BBC/Starz period drama The White Queen. The season reached an average audience of 5.4 million viewers and a share of 21.3 percent of the U.K. TV audience watching at the time. That was an increase over the previous season, according to ITV.

Walsh plays Detective Sergeant Ronnie Brooks in the ITV hit, while Rowan plays Chief Prosecutor Jacob Thorne. Taylor (Coronation Street) and Joseph (Peep Show) joined the cast last season as a prosecutor and police officer, respectively.

They will be joined in the new season by new colleague Detective Sergeant Joe Hawkins played by Ben Bailey Smith (Derek).

The new season will be produced by Jane Dauncey (Stella, Casualty), and Alison Jackson and Jane Featherstone will executive produce for Kudos.

Said ITV head of drama series Jane Hudson: "It’s a much loved drama amongst our audience, and they certainly won’t be disappointed by what’s in store for them this series.”

Britney Spears Is 'About To Show All These Bitches How It's Done'

Director Ben Mor tells MTV News Spears is using her 'Work Bitch' video to 'take back her throne.'

Stand at attention! Britney Spears is more fierce than ever, and she's using her upcoming "Work Bitch" video to prove it to the Britney Army.

MTV News spoke to director Ben Mor, who also worked with Spears on last year's "Scream & Shout" video, who said her fans will be "floored" when they finally get to see it.

"You're gonna get to see a lot of Britney that you haven't seen in a long time. A lot of different wardrobe changes, a lot of different setups," he said of what he described as a dance video. "It's one of the more ambitious Britney videos in a while, I guess."

Fans already know that Spears headed out to the desert to film parts of the visual, but Mor revealed that those scenes only paint part of the picture.

"I think there's a few varied locations. There's a desert exterior, daytime location. There's another very unique location that involves water and just really beautiful architectural pieces," he said. "I won't reveal too much but [there's] a unique location that I'm excited to share. Then you have a kind of really modern interior, like house, like sleek interior that serves as the hero dance routine location, even though she dances in most all of the locations," he added. "And then there's a lot of good cutaways, more intimate type cutaways within those locations."



While Britney has certainly opted for story-based videos in the past, Mor said that this clip is more of a "theme ... rather than a narrative," he added, "This one is basically [saying] 'The queen is back and she's about to show all these bitches how it's done.' It's her being really fierce and taking back her throne in a way."

"Work Bitch" is the lead single off Spears' December 3 album release.

Rihanna granted permanent injunction against Topshop. Had to pay her £200,000, possibly more later



Lawyers who represented singer Rihanna in a successful High Court battle over a T-shirt unlawfully bearing her image are seeking almost £1 million in legal costs, a judge heard yesterday as he granted her a permanent injunction.

In July, he ruled that Rihanna's fans might have been deceived into thinking that she had endorsed the T-shirt.

Topshop had sold the garment - which bore an image of her taken without permission on set of her 2011 music video We Found Love - between March and August 2012.

The judge said sale of the T-shirt without her permission was "passing off".

At yesterday's hearing, he ruled that it was "right and fair" that the 25-year-old singer should be granted an injunction to prevent any future similar wrong use of the "style icon's" image.

He gave Topshop permission to appeal to the Court of Appeal against his ruling. If his decision is upheld on appeal, the judge will then assess the amount of damages due to the singer - and how much is also due in legal costs.

The judge said the estimated legal bill put forward by Rihanna's legal team - $1.4 million, or £919,000 - were "figures I find startling".

The judge said he was not satisfied that he could safely use those figures to decide what interim payment should be made today to Rihanna pending a full damages assessment.

He eventually settled on a "reasonable" £200,000.

It's the top "SVU" in 18-49 since May 18, 2011 (2.9).

‘Oldboy’ Featurette Has New Footage and Some Solid Sales Pitch with Cast and Crew Interviews



Josh Brolin says he spent three days in solitary confinement to prep for Oldboy. That’s pretty serious stuff. He doesn’t make the mistake of thinking that it really gave him the mindset of Joe Doucette, the character he plays who is imprisoned for 20 years for reasons unknown. But it does represent a level of commitment to the film.

This Oldboy featurette gives that background info, and also features quite a bit of new footage and other interviews. Brolin calls the movie “the most difficult thing I’ve ever done,” as he, director Spike Lee and co-stars Elizabeth Olsen, Samuel L. Jackson, Sharlto Copley and Michael Imperioli talk about the film. If nothing else, the plentiful new footage will be enough to warrant a look from those curious about this remake.

"It's only been three months but she knows Ryan is the one," a source close to the actress explains. "When you know, you know."

Sweeting, 26, proposed on Wednesday, Sept. 26 -- just a few days after the couple made their red carpet debut together over the weekend at a pre-Emmys bash and then at the Emmy Awards show itself in L.A. The CBS star was accordingly in a joyful mood on social media after accepting the proposal. "Flying high, I could literally touch the sky with you . . . " she tweeted to her 1.6 million followers.

Ageless Asian Beauty/Bad-Ass Bitch Ming-Na Wen Talks 'Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.'



Actress Ming-Na Wen loves being in the spies and superhero action drama “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.,” But she’s also dreaming of “Star Wars.”

“My ultimate dream is to be in a ‘Star Wars’ film,” she laughs. “If the right people at Disney are reading this, now that the series is moving along, I’m happy to just be an extra! Really! Just so I can check that off my bucket list.”

Some movie lovers may remember Wen from her breakthrough as June in the film adaptation of Amy Tan’s “The Joy Luck Club.” Others may recall that she was the voice behind Disney’s take on the classic Chinese legend “Mulan,” or seen her on television in roles ranging from “The Single Guy” to “E.R.” But in parallel with what she jokingly refers to as her “serious actor” work, Wen has accumulated an astonishingly awesome geek resume: Long before her arrival in the Marvel Universe, she starred in the 1998-99 TV adaptation of Todd McFarlane’s “Spawn”; she voiced the lead role of Dr. Aki Ross in the 2001 CGI-animated movie based on the epic adventure videogame series “Final Fantasy”; she voiced Detective Ellen Yin in a season of the animated TV series “The Batman”; and, of course, from 2009 to 2011, she played Camile Wray on “SGU Stargate Universe,” the final installment in the long-running “Stargate” franchise. (And let’s not forget that she also portrayed everyone’s favorite high-kicking dumpling-head, Chun Li, in the first live-action adaptation of the videogame “Street Fighter.” Spinning bird kick!)

It’s an amazing run, though one that took her a while to embrace. “When I first started out, I was trying so hard to not be in that realm,” she says. “It was against all of my instincts — I grew up as a total geek girl, I was the president of my high school’s sci-fi club — but I kept on telling myself, if you want to get respect, you have to be a serious actor.”

Danielle Fishel writing memoir

Though she’ll always be brainy and beautiful Topanga to us, Boy Meets World star Danielle Fishel, now 32, is all grown up, with enough life fodder for a memoir.

Titled Normally, This Would Be Cause for Concern: Tales of Calamity and Unrelenting Awkwardness (too bad Girl Meets World was already taken for the new TV show), Fishel’s memoir will be published by Gallery Books, an imprint of Simon & Schuster. Expect it on shelves in fall 2014.

What will fill the pages? It will draw ”from disastrous auditions to wedding planning mishaps and awkward red carpet moments. Normally, This Would Be Cause for Concern promises to be a fun romp through Fishel’s own imperfections and mild neuroses,” according to the press release. But … what about tidbits on playing Topanga? Not to worry: “As her fans and Twitter followers know, the real Danielle is just as warm, funny and down-to-earth as the character she portrayed on Boy Meets World.” Phew.

“I’m thrilled to publish someone as charmingly funny as Danielle Fishel. She has already achieved a cult following and I’m sure her book will bring her even more fans,” said Jennifer Bergstrom, Vice President, Publisher of Gallery Books, in the announcement.

Fishel added, “Life is an incredible, and often embarrassing, journey and I can’t wait to share my experiences in Normally, This Would Be Cause for Concern. Get ready to laugh with me (or at me — that’s okay, too!).”

Shadow and Act: Can you tell our readers about your role in Baggage Claim?

Jill Scott: I play Gail Best, who is one of the best friends to Montana Moore, played by Paula. Gail is feisty, sassy, and confident.  She’s kind of a man killer, with no feeling of remorse about it. While Montana is searching for love, Gail is interested in the fun of right now.

Amanda Bynes Round Up: Mom Drops Cons. Bid & Possible Psych Stay Till 2015



Here's how bad off Amanda Bynes is ... it looks like she could be in a mental health facility for a year and a half.

Amanda's lawyer was in a NYC court today ... in connection with the case where Amanda allegedly threw a bong out the window of her apartment.

Her lawyer, Gerald Shargel, asked for a postponement for up to 18 months while she got psychiatric treatment.

Sources tell TMZ ... the likelihood is ... the case will be plea bargained ... there are major weaknesses in the prosecution's case. Translation -- the case could possibly be dropped altogether.

Source

Amanda Bynes' mom is dropping her bid to get a permanent conservatorship, but not because she's turning her back on her very ill daughter ... it's because she already has the ammo she needs to protect her.

Amanda's mom was slated to go to court Monday to make the temporary conservatorship permanent.  But here's the deal.  Amanda is currently on an LPS hold -- translation, doctors have a tighter rein on Amanda than her mother would have with a conservatorship.

And there's a twist.  Doctors have given Amanda's mom the power to make medical and financial decisions for her daughter under the LPS hold.

The mom has already exercised her power by getting Amanda admitted long term to UCLA Medical Center.

Bottom line.  There's no need for a conservatorship anymore, so she's withdrawn her petition.

And finally, and sadly, we're told there has been no real improvement in Amanda's condition."

Stream Haim's new album Days Are Gone

CLICK HERE or go to Source

Geoff Barrow of the revered English band Portishead recently maligned the fast-rising Los Angeles sister act HAIM with a snippy tweet : Hiam [sic] sound like Shania Twain ... When did that become a good thing? To which this critic replies: Who said it isn't? HAIM's song "The Wire" does bear traces of Twain's 1999 hit "Man I Feel Like a Woman," one of many inspirations hidden in plain sight on the trio's debut album, Days Are Gone. And that's good thing right this minute: HAIM's thoughtful, playful music is good for the radio, good for rock, and good for music lovers of all ages who need to carve out a little space to dream.

stillfirst
A 25 year old chain-smoking, emotionally shallow young man named Jonathan Lowenstein is living in Los Angeles, estranged from his wealthy upper Eastside New York family. One day he gets the call that his father, Robert, who has been battling cancer off and on for ten years, has 36 hours to live. He immediately rushes to be at his father’s side in New York. Jonathan’s father reveals he is tired of fighting his battle with cancer, and has requested that at 8am the following morning he be injected with enough painkillers to kill himself. Jonathan is joined by his mother Rachel, and his younger sister Karen, a student in law school. Upon hearing of the choice, Karen believes their father should be kept alive, against his wishes, and is willing to get a court-order to make it so! Furious with Karen’s unwillingness to respect her father’s dying wish, Robert proposes that if Karen can make a compelling case to stay alive, he will continue his battle with cancer, and forgo his own death. In the last 36 hours of his father’s life, will Jonathan find closure and reconcile with his family? And perhaps most importantly, in the face of this touching and raw family tragedy, will he find the strength to stand as a man?

Katie Holmes celebrates 100 years of mayonnaise

showbiz-katie-holmes-mayonnaise

Katie Holmes has landed a major new role - as the face of Hellmann's Mayonnaise's 100th birthday celebrations.

The Batman Begins actress celebrated a century of the popular egg-based condiment at a party in New York. Holmes smiled for the cameras as she posed next to a cake modeled on a jar of mayonnaise at the 'Feeding America' event on Pier 84.

"I love food. I'm working on being a better cook," she told USA Today. "I flourish at pancakes. I do sea bass, too. Every little thing I do, I take a thousand pictures and send them to my older siblings. 'See, I can do it, too'."

The party also saw Hellmann's break the Guinness World Record for longest picnic table ever created. Over 400 people sat at the 320ft table, which was decorated with flowers in empty Hellmann's bottles, as they enjoyed treats including chocolate mayonnaise cupcakes.

Holmes was recently forced to deny rumors that she is dating Jamie Foxx. The actress ended her five-year marriage to Tom Cruise in June 2012.

Trailer for Bennet Miller's 'Foxcatcher' Starring Steve Carell



The first ‘Foxcatcher‘ trailer has hit the web, showcasing Steve Carell‘s shocking transformation into John du Pont, the man who tragically killed Olympic wrestling champion David Schultz.


Channing Tatum and Mark Ruffalo star opposite Carell as Mark and David Schultz, two sibling athletes who formed a relationship with du Pont, a paranoid schizophrenic and the heir to the du Pont Chemical fortune. Those athletes who were under his sponsorship and often trained at the athletic center on his estate in Newton Square, PA, were known as Team Foxcatcher. In 1997, the real-life du Pont was found guilty, though mentally ill of killing David, after his behavior became increasingly more erratic. He died serving his sentence on December 9, 2010.

‘Foxcatcher’ seems like it could grab its director, Bennett Miller (‘Moneyball,’ ‘Capote’), another Oscar nomination, given Carell’s transformation and already buzzing performance. As Miller said, “John du Pont was a character who nobody thought was capable of doing something as horrible as he did. And I did not want to cast somebody who would feel dangerous in that way.”

The film also stars Sienna Miller, and is scheduled to hit theaters December 20. Here’s the official synopsis:

FOXCATCHER tells the story of Olympic Gold Medal-winning wrestler Mark Schultz (Tatum), who sees a way out from the shadow of his more celebrated wrestling brother Dave (Ruffalo) and a life of poverty when he is summoned by eccentric multi-millionaire John du Pont (Carell) to move onto his estate and train for the 1988 Seoul Olympics. Desperate to gain the respect of his disapproving mother, du Pont begins “coaching” a world-class athletic team and, in the process, lures Mark into dangerous habits, breaks his confidence and drives him into a self-destructive spiral. Based on actual events, FOXCATCHER is a gripping and profoundly American story of fragile men who pinned their hopes for love and redemption on a desperate obsession for greatness that was to end in tragedy.

The Avengers:Age of Ultron Comic-Con Announcement is now online in HQ

One of the great moments at San Diego Comic-Con this year was the very end of the Marvel Studios panel when Kevin Feige surprised the audience by bringing out Joss Whedon. Whedon had something to show us, and the video was an exciting reveal of the title to his May 1, 2015 sequel to The Avengers. By now we know, of course, that it’s Avengers: Age of Ultron.

What many of you who weren’t in the room don’t know is what the video looked like, at least not in high-res official form. The Iron Man 3 Jarvis App has now revealed that footage, which can be viewed online. We have it below, along with a plot synopsis that was uploaded to IMDB. It’s likely unofficial but interesting none the less.

First up, thanks to MoviePilot for the heads up on this video. According to their site, you can access it via the Jarvis iPhone App but I couldn’t get it to work. None the less, here’s the video.

What an exciting reveal that was.

Forbes released its list of the highest-earning hip-hop cash cows, and it's clear that Diddy makes way more than 50 Cent.
And he's glad that Forbes got it right, telling the magazine, "You started learning how to count right, I see. Thank God!"
Sean Combs, AKA Puff Daddy/P.Diddy/Diddy, reeled in $50 million in the past 12 months, thanks to his Bad Boy record label, Sean John clothing line, Blue Flame agency, and endorsement deal with Diageo’s Ciroc vodka.
The rap mogul has payed close attention to Forbes' rankings over the years, and hasn't always agreed with its estimates of his fortune.
Diddy has an estimated net worth of $580 million, so he can afford a little creative license.

1. Diddy — $50 million
2. Jay Z — $43 million
3. Dr. Dre — $40 million
4. Nicki Minaj — $29 million
5. Birdman — $21 million

Dylan Sprouse Defends Restaurant Host Job: Former Disney Star "Financially Secure"



Following Jon Gosselin's lead? Former Disney star Dylan Sprouse, of Suite Life of Zach & Cody, wrote a special note on his Tumblr page Monday, Sept. 23, to address rumors that he is broke after fans spotted him working at a New York City restaurant.

"So many pictures have gotten out that I'm now working as a host at a restaurant in NY. To clear up the air (which is admittedly pretty rude), I did not take this job because I 'lost all my money,' I am financially secure, and took this job as a way to primarily feed my over bountiful video game addiction," the 21-year-old actor explained. "I also took this as a way to try a new experience, working somewhat below the means I'm used to, as well as a way to socialize and get out of the house."

The child star further defended his decision to take a normal job. "I feel most comfortable when I'm working and doing something, to criticize someone of that is pretty odd," he added. "I will potentially return to acting someday, but in no way do I think any experience is a step down for me, but rather a new step in another direction."

Sprouse starred on the Disney Channel's Suite Life of Zach & Cody and The Suite Life on Deck alongside twin brother Cole Sprouse from 2005 to 2011. Last May, he explained on the YouTube series "Conversations with Nat" that he and his brother said goodbye to the Disney Channel to go to college. "Historically, Disney Channel stars don't survive well outside of the Disney environment . . . we decided that we should go and get a higher education [and also] give time for people to forget about us," he said. "If we left and returned four years later after we've grown, gained an education, looked physically different . . . it would only do good for us."

In October 2012, Sprouse told NYU Local that he was studying video game design with a double major in poetry and studio art at NYU.

Elementary collects another Broadway star: Laura Benanti

Exclusive: Elementary Tracks Down Laura Benanti



Life goes on for Laura Benanti, who's bounced back from the cancellation of her NBC sitcom Go On (and her NBC drama The Playboy Club before that). In addition to her recurring roles as Danny Pino's estranged wife on NBC's Law & Order: Special Victims Unit and Mark Feuerstein's hospital colleague on USA's Royal Pains — not to mention the Tony winner's upcoming turn as the Baroness in NBC's live production of The Sound of Music — she's landed a guest-starring gig on CBS' Elementary.

Benanti will play Abigail Spencer (no relation to the Rectify actress of the same name), a nanny whose CEO boss is found dead while wearing S&M gear in the Oct. 17 episode, "Poison Pen." When Sherlock Holmes (Jonny Lee Miller) and Joan Watson (Lucy Liu) discover the victim was poisoned, the caregiver — who shares a past connection with the master sleuth — becomes the prime suspect.

"She's someone who Sherlock sort of knew as a teenager," reports Miller, who previously worked with Benanti on ABC's short-lived musical dramedy Eli Stone. "I can't really tell you anything more than that." Sounds... mysterious!

Lady Gaga Putting Finishing Touches on CHARTPOP



It feels like Lady Gaga has been working on ARTPOP forever. But every artist has to put the final brushstroke on the canvas at some point and Mother Monster is finally ready to put the brush down.

"In the final days finishing ARTPOP," Gaga tweeted early Thursday morning (September 26). "I feel like an atelier. Refining seams. Ironing fabrics. Needling the last thread of my couture creation."

After living with the music for more than a year, it sounds like even Gaga is a bit blown away by what she's cooked up for the album, which is due out November 11.

"It was this amazing moment today my head down gazing at the soundboard -- the music came on I looked up + knew it was ARTPOP it all made sense," she wrote.

Meryl Streep Perfects ANOTHER Role; First Look at Meryl as 'The Witch' in "Into The Woods"


She’s not nice, she’s just right, she’s the witch. Check out the first photo of Meryl Streep as The Witch in the upcoming film version of the Stephen Sondheim/James Lapine musical Into the Woods. Rob Marshall (Chicago) is directing the film, which started production this week in the U.K.

In the photo above, Streep takes on a terrifying yet high-style version of the character –which was originated by Bernadette Peters on Broadway in 1987 — complete with yellowing talon-like nails and a feathery frock.

But no one is alone. The musical is a twisted fairy tale featuring a number of classic characters including Cinderella, Rapunzel, Jack (of beanstalk fame), and Little Red Riding Hood, all connected by The Witch’s powers. Streep joins Johnny Depp (as the Wolf),  Anna Kendrick (as Cinderella), Chris Pine (as Cinderella’s Prince), and Emily Blunt (as the Baker’s Wife) in the film, which is scheduled for a Christmas 2014 release. That’s a lot of midnights away, but it looks like it will be worth the wait.

The Crazy Ones Pilot Review

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Robin Williams makes his return to television in his first starring role since Mork & Mindy completed its run in 1982 in a pedigree-packed show from producer David E. Kelley (Ally McBeal, Boston Legal). The comedian stars as Simon Roberts, the zany head of a Chicago advertising agency who works alongside his far more buttoned-up daughter, Sydney (Sarah Michelle Gellar).

The show may seem as though it was conceived as a launching pad for Williams' improvisational antics, and there's certainly plenty of room in the premise for all manner of shenanigans. Roberts is a loopy creative genius who is as eccentric as he is inspired, his ideas are as unconventional as his methods - that sort of thing. The degree to which Williams' style and particular brand of humor appeals to you will probably be commensurate with your interest in the show.

AGNEZ MO Premieres Bop "Coke Bottle" on US Radio + Gets Celeb Support + Appears on Rupaul Drives

...and begins to break America better than the kpop flops before her






Agnez in the Power 106 studio on Tuesay

Russell Simmons and Steve Rifkind are getting back in the music game in a big way.

One of the first artists that Russell and Steve are circling is a singer by the name of Agnez Mo. People here in the states may not know who she is, but Agnez Mo happens to be the most decorated pop star in Indonesia.

indonesia happens to be the 4th largest country in the world, but Agnez's drive and ambition has brought her to the US, where she has been recording with producer extraordinaire Timbaland. The result of their collaboration has yielded some really hot tracks - the first one of which is the just released "Coke Bottle". The track features not only Timbaland, but the king of the South himself T.I.

This past Tuesday, Agnez and All Def Music dropped by radio station Power 106 in LA to world premiere the track by way of live stream, and the tune in factor was not local ore regional, but global. Driven by the listeners of the nightly radio show, combined with Agnez's fan base in Indonesia, the impressions and fan engagement of the live stream at Power 106 was something they hadn't experienced in some time.

"Coke Bottle" was just made available for download on iTunes yesterday, and from early numbers, the single is already a hit.

Ahead of the release of her upcoming third studio album ARTPOP we take a look back at Lady Gaga’s debut album The Fame released five years ago this month.

In August of 2008 an unknown, fresh faced pop singer with crazy ambitions and a crazier fashion sense released her debut album. New Yorker Stefani Germanotta spent two and half years writing and preparing for its release under her stage name Lady Gaga.

The Fame, a dance-pop, electronic album with influences from the 80′s was released to critical acclaim. Although the music was dance-heavy critics praised the lyrical content and vocal ability of Lady Gaga – many comparing her to No Doubt‘s Gwen Stefani.

One Direction allegedly sped through three red lights while being chased by fans

rs_560x415-130827190413-1024.One-Direction-Harry-Styles-ThisIsUs-ms.082713_copy

Have the One Direction boys been up to no good?

Well, according to reports the boy band's entourage sped through three red lights during a night out in Perth, Australia. The band was apparently being chased by fans throughout the city; however, the local police don't seem to view that as a valid excuse for their traffic violations.


Western Australia Assistant Commissioner Nick Anticich has spoken out against the band's behavior and revealing that an official investigation is underway.

"I have been made aware of it, and I've asked our traffic enforcement group to have a look at it. We need to determine the facts and obviously if there's any evidence supporting the allegations," he told reporters.

"It's unacceptable behavior. It breaches the law and we will deal with every person in the same way," he added.

"By virtue of the fact that they are rock stars is not a license to break any laws or be any different from anyone else. One Direction they may be, but the only direction in relation to this type offending will be to the courts."

Police Minister Liza Harvey also weighed in on the matter, saying, It's an operational matter for police but I would encourage One Direction to pull their head in in Western Australia and set an example for their predominantly young fans."

She added, "It's a clear message for everyone who uses our roads. We have really strong legislation in this state and that applies to everybody who visits here. We extend a warm welcome [to One Direction] but when you're here we expect you to apply the same standards that we apply to our community."

The band members were whisked away in a convoy of three Mercedes vans after they landed via private jet. The singers were on their way to their hotel and were attempting to bypass a group of approximately 15 devoted fans.

Biting The Hand That Feeds Her! Farrah Abraham Writing Takedown Of The Adult Entertainment Industry

Farrah Abraham has made several questionable career decisions over the past few months, but her latest might be the most baffling yet. After starring in a sex tape porno , making appearances at sex expos and having a sex toy molded from her private parts, she now claims to be writing a no-holds-barred takedown of the very industry that has paid her bills for months.

farrah-abraham-kiss-bikini

“Oh I’m writing & writing…” she posted on Twitter Tuesday. ”My next book is going to put the Adult Entertainment industry on Blast, #WomenStayStrong!”

While she declined to discuss specifics, X-rated Teen Mom star could be planning to re-air her complaints about her sex tape partner, porn star James Deen.

In May, Abraham accused Deen of having “an anger issue” and said, “Now that I know him more, I would never do it with him again…”

The month before that, she accused him of having a “small” penis.

This new expose will be the third — or fourth — book by the sugar daddy enthusiast.

In August 2012, she released the memoir My Teenage Dream Ended through MTV Press, and later that year she self-published a children’s book, Passy Perfume.

She has also claimed to be writing an erotic novel, as RadarOnline.com has reported, which she claims will outsell Fifty Shades of Grey.

“Fifty Shades of Grey is gonna have their money,” she said. (The phrase is: “Going to give them a run for their money,” but we assume that’s what Farrah meant.)

The 20 Worst Sports Franchises of All Time

For some sports fans, losing is poetry. And the longer it goes on, the more literary it becomes, like an aria of suffering. The teams on this list are not those teams. These teams suck. They suck epically, inventively, in all kinds of ways. They’re stupid. They’re greedy. Some of them are even a little bit evil. All of them torment their fans, confronting them with the same question, over and over, year after year: Have you considered rooting for somebody else?

The Leafs’ home arena, Air Canada Center (okay, fine: Air Canada Centre), is regularly filled to 103 percent capacity, despite having the league’s highest ticket prices—and despite the Leafs not having reached the Stanley Cup finals since 1967. No wonder their mayor hit the crack pipe.
