'Hannibal' Exclusive: Bryan Fuller whets appetite for season 2 with teaser

Hannibal

Now that’s a Halloween costume.

NBC’s sophisticated, slick, and often quite sick Hannibal will return in 2014 to serve a second course of horror and human hors d’oeuvres. To get fans psyched for the further adventures of the titular frightful foodie (Mads Mikkelsen) and tormented FBI profiler Will Graham (Hugh Dancy), Hannibal mastermind Bryan Fuller offers the image above to get you in the right headspace.

Explains the exec producer, who designed this poster-worthy key art in collaboration with the show’s f/x team at RocketScience: “After a horrifying descent into madness in season 1, this image ironically represents the perspective of a scrappier, clearer-minded Will Graham in season 2. The scales have fallen from his eyes and he finally sees Hannibal Lecter for the monster he is.”

Hannibal will return early next year with a 13-episode season that begins with an outing entitled “Kaiseki.”


Fannibals, start your salivating.

Amanda Bynes diagnosed as schizophrenic and bipolar?



After months of speculation about Amanda Bynes‘ mental state, the troubled starlet has been formally diagnosed withschizophrenia and bipolar disorder, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting.

The formal diagnosis was made ”while Amanda was being treated at the UCLA Medical Center….she does indeed have schizophrenia and bipolar disorder. It was what Amanda’s parents, Rick and Lynn, had suspected all along,” a source close to the family told Radar.

“Nevertheless, it was difficult to process for Amanda’s parents. The bright side is that Amanda can lead a long, normal life, as long as she takes her medication. Doctors at the treatment facility are still working to get Amanda therapeutic meds and she’s responding to the medications she is being given to treat her dual diagnosis.”

On Monday Bynes’ parents, via their attorney Tamar Arminak, released a statement about progress she is making in treatment.

“Currently, upon recommendation by the skilled healthcare professionals at UCLA Medical Center, Amanda is receiving specialized treatment in a private facility outside of Los Angeles. Amanda is making great strides towards recovery. The entire Bynes family would like to ask that they be given some measure of privacy so they can focus on Amanda’s health and well-being,” the statement read.

“The Bynes family would also like to thank all of Amanda’s supporters and well-wishers for their thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.”

The actress’ mother Lynn Bynes was granted a conservatorship LPS of her daughter after she set a fire in the driveway of a nearby neighbor several months ago.

The facility that Bynes is being treated at specializes in dual diagnosis and “Amanda is responding very well to her new doctors and treatment. It’s a much better fit for Amanda, and it doesn’t feel institutional, cold and stark.”

The source told Radar, “UCLA just wasn’t the right fit for Amanda. She was turning into a zombie and was withdrawing into herself even more.”

RadarOnline.com has chosen NOT to reveal the name of the facility that Bynes is being treated at.

According to Arminak, “The Bynes Probate conservatorship proceeding has been continued in part to December 17, 2013, for final determination and dismissal.”

Questionable source but it kind of makes sense tbh

Buh-bye blondie. Hello slightly more realistic Daario.

Photos of Game of Thrones filming at the Klis Fortress in Croatia turned up online today, giving fans a sneak peek at Michiel Huisman as Daario Naharis. This is the first time the actor has been seen in costume as the Tyroshi sellsword since his casting leaked a month ago. It appears as though Huisman will be keeping his beard, and foregoing the long blond wig that was part of Ed Skrein’s look when he played the role.

Joining him at the shooting location were costars Emilia Clarke, Nathalie Emmanuel and Ian McElhinney, seen in the photos below.

Queen's Brian May, Roger Taylor call working w/Adam Lambert "gift from heaven"


Brian May, who worked for decades alongside Freddie Mercury in Queen, knows a thing or two about vocalists. So when he talks about Adam Lambert, with whom the band just made its U.S. debut, it resonates.

“He’s extraordinary,” May says in this iHeart clip. “It speaks for itself, his voice. That’s one voice in a billion. Adam can do things which really I have never heard anyone else ever do in my life.”

Queen began with Mercury in 1970, and continued with him as their flamboyant frontman until Mercury was felled by AIDS-related illness in 1991. Since, Queen has worked with a number of other singers, notably Paul Rodgers.

Queen first took the stage alongside Lambert in 2009, during the finale of the American Idol singing program. May and Roger Taylor, the band’s original drummer, have since worked with Lambert at the 2011 EMAs and in a series of European dates last summer.

Pretty Little Liars' Brant Daugherty Was Mugged at Gunpoint After Dancing With the Stars



No, this is isn't a Pretty Little Liars plotline. Actor Brant Daugherty came face to face with a robber after taping Dancing With the Stars on Monday, Sept. 23. The TV star, 28, was approached by a man with a gun outside his apartment complex in California.

"It was a complete random occurrence of events and it led up to one of the worst nights of my life—after having such a great night last week on the dance floor," Daughterty tells People.

Daugherty was forced to fork over a pair of workout pants, two T-shirts, a toothbrush and his cell phone. The mugger also made off with a pair of Latin dance shoes. "I would love to see the look on his face when he opened the bag up, expecting I don't know what, jewels and riches," he jokes to Access Hollywood.

Petra Murgatroyd's partner filed a police report, though cops have yet to track down the criminal. In the meantime, Daugherty is trying to maintain a sense of humor. "Somewhere out there there's a dancing thief with great teeth," he tells People. "We like to joke that we changed his life. When he got my dance shoes he swore away his life of crime and he's going to start doing the salsa now."

Rosario Dawson: "I didn't even have sex until I was 20"


Rosario Dawson appeared on HuffPost Live with host Ricky Camilleri on Tuesday to support The Purple Purse and The Allstate Foundation during Domestic Violence Awareness Month, but the discussion wasn't simply focused on that good cause.

Dawson spoke at length to Camilleri about the controversial 1995 film "Kids," Larry Clark's feature about New York teenagers that was written by Harmony Korine. "I got spotted on the street. I auditioned. I worked on it for four days," Dawson said, while revealing she didn't even bother telling many people about the film after being cast.

"Kids" was a lightning rod for debate in the mid 1990s because of its frank depictions of teenagers doing drugs and having unprotected sex. Dawson, however, said her parents were really only worried about one thing.

"With all the insanity that my character goes through, the only thing they cared about was not smoking," she joked.

The actress was 15 when she filmed "Kids," and her character, Ruby, was one of the more sexually promiscuous in the film. "I didn't even have sex until I was 20," Dawson said about the differences between Ruby and herself. "My mom was a teenage mom, I was deathly afraid of being a teenage mom."

Lil Kim serves face & chest at Diddy's party

Lil Kim makes sure she's the centre of attention as she parties in just a bra and jeans with Sean Diddy Combs

She wore a black lace bra with long sleeves, a belted leather bustier and black low-rise skinny jeans which displayed her bumpy post-surgery abs.

The star donned red lipstick, matching eye shadow and completed her look with a sleek cat eye. She arrived to the party alone and spent the night celebrating her success with her fellow male hip hop colleagues.

For part of the night Lil Kim hung out with undefeated boxing heavyweight Floyd Mayweather. The pair were almost joined at the hip as they posed for photographs and became comforable with one another.

Although their friendship hit a rift back in 2011, Sean 'Diddy' Combs invited the pint-size star to his party which was held at the compound in Atlanta, Georgia. Combs has achieved much musical success as one of the most sought after music producers.

GTA Online Launch Issues - Rockstar Speaks



Rockstar has acknowledged the issues surrounding Grand Theft Auto Online's launch, and confirmed it's working to resolve them.

A page on the Rockstar Support site lists all the known problems and promises updates as and when they are each sorted.

Among the issues that the developer is looking into is an error message saying cloud servers are unavailable, freezing on the first race with a message saying "waiting for other players", a "failed to host" message, problems with the first race marker not showing correctly, matchmaking time out errors and general issues tied to the Social Club.

The entry concludes with the message, "We apologize for any inconvenience and thank you for your patience while we work to resolve this."

Hopefully the problems won't take too long to resolve, but Rockstar did warn that this would happen considering the intense interest in the game. Until things are back up and running, you can kill time reading our first impressions of GTA Online as well as have a look at everything that'll be available when things are more stable.

A Scaredy Cat's Guide To Non-Gory Horror Movies

During the fall, the temperature drops and the ghosts come out to play... at least at the theaters. But for me, the Halloween season has always been a confusing time. You see, I love movies that give me a fright. I’m always looking for a horror movie to give me a thrill and a chill as soon as there's an autumn nip in the air.

The only problem? I hate gory movies. I cannot deal with seeing someone’s innards become outwards, which vastly limits my choices in scary movies. With all the Saws and Hostels out there, (and let’s not even talk about The Human Centipede), it’s become harder for me to find a scary movie I can actually watch without getting thoroughly sick to my stomach.

I figure I cannot be alone in this plight; there must be others like me! So below is an in-no-ways-comprehensive list of scary movies that manage to skip out on the buckets of blood.

Cher Earns Highest-Charting Solo Album Ever on Billboard 200



"Believe" it: Cher has earned her highest-charting solo album ever on the Billboard 200.

The diva's new studio album, "Closer to the Truth," also logs her highest debut ever (solo or otherwise) with its arrival at No. 3. It sold 63,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The Warner Bros. Records effort is her first album since 2002's "Living Proof."

Until this week, Cher had never gone higher than No. 4 with her solo albums -- reaching that peak with both "Believe" in 1999 and "The Very Best of Cher" in 2003. As half of Sonny & Cher, she only went higher once -- with 1965's No. 2-peaking "Look at Us." The album -- which contained the No. 1 Billboard Hot 100 single "I Got You Babe" -- was stuck in the runner-up slot for eight weeks behind the Beatles' "Help!"

During the new album's release week, Cher played NBC's "Today" show (Sept. 23) and "The Late Show With David Letterman" (Sept. 24). On the latter program, she was the only guest for the evening and also performed the album's second single, "I Hope You Find It."

"Closer to the Truth" was led by the single "Woman's World," which became Cher's eighth No. 1 on the Dance Club/Play Songs chart in August.

On keeping her private life private: “You don’t know me. I don’t particularly care about the romantic life of a person I don’t know. I guess we’re all nosy in some way…. I know that people like celebrities and maybe it gives them something to dream about.”

On taking career risks: “It would be such a waste to just continue to do the same thing and not take a risk. I don’t have anything to lose by taking a risk artistically—I only have something to gain, even if it doesn’t work out.”

The German Olympic Uniforms Are Basically Pride Flags


Germany unveiled colorful uniforms for its Sochi Winter Olympics team at a runway show in Düsseldorf on Tuesday. Some are saying that the rainbow clad uniforms are a subtle political statement against Russia’s anti-gay policies.


The German Olympic Sports Confederation (DOSB) disputes any political message, telling Spiegel.de “the uniforms are not a protest.”


DOSB says that the designs were finalized before Russian anti-gay protests started. “This is just a fashionable jacket,” says DOSB director Michael Vesper.

Natalie Portman admits son Aleph changed her views on motherhood

Before becoming a mother in 2011, Natalie Portman admitted she didn't think of full-time mothers in  'working' capacity.

However, that all changed when her son Aleph arrived with the Oscar winning actress now conceding in a new interview with ELLE UK that parenting is the hardest job in the world.

The Israeli-born star, 32, admits while she adores bringing up her little boy, she has found it most intense than any role she has played on-screen.


Speaking to the November issue of the women's glossy, Natalie said: 'I love being a mum, but it’s much more intensive work than being an actress – going to work feels like you’ve got a day off.

'Not that I want a day off from being a mum, it’s just perhaps I had this impression before that mums don’t work. But they work more than anyone.'

Natalie is currently promoting her upcoming film Thor: The Dark World, which sees her reprise her role as astrophysicist Jane Foster.

In the ELLE interview, the brunette is interviewed by her Thor co-star Tom Hiddleston, who ended up being punched by Natalie.

He describes their fight scene: 'Natalie has a neat right hook. I know this because the first time we shared screen time, she punched me in the face.'

Reflecting on the punch, she laughed: 'Oh my god: it was so good.'

Although she plays a fiesty female in her latest role, Natalie believes Hollywood has a long way to go in its depiction of feminism.

She said: 'I want every version of a woman and a man to be possible. I want women and men to be able to be full-time parents or full-time working people or any combination of the two.

'I want both to be able to do whatever they want sexually without being called names. I want them to be allowed to be weak and strong and happy and sad – human, basically.

'The fallacy in Hollywood is that if you’re making a "feminist" story, the woman kicks ass and wins. That’s not feminist, that’s macho. A movie about a weak, vulnerable woman can be feminist if it shows a real person that we can empathise with.'

Katy and Rihanna increase underage drinking percentage

Rihanna and Katy Perry promote under-age boozing, say researchers

Researchers discovered that a fifth of pop songs now contain alcohol- related lyrics, with most suggesting that getting drunk is fun.
They blamed American megastars for the increase in binge songs from just 8% in 2001 to 18.5% in 2011.
The team from Liverpool John Moores University highlighted Katy Perry’s hangover romp hit Last Friday Night, where she sings: “There’s a stranger in my bed, there’s a pounding in my head.”
They also flagged up Rihanna’s hit What’s My Name? where she brags about “good weed, white wine”.
Researcher Katie Hardcastle said: “The lyrics generally put a positive spin on alcohol consumption."
“Drinking is linked to confidence, gregariousness or physical attractiveness, as well as a wealth, success, or sex.”
Katie, whose findings were published in scientific journal Psychology of Music, blamed American R ’n’ B songs.
Her study highlighted how bigging up booze and name-dropping posh brands would never be allowed on TV, radio or magazine advertising.
And Katie added that the songs rarely dealt with the health risks of heavy boozing or hangovers.
She added: “Chart-topping singers voice the negative effects of alcohol on health and well-being far less frequently.”
Her team picked chart listings from 1981, 1991, 2001 and 2011

Ariana Grande releases studio version of "Pink Champagne" to celebrate 10 million followers


To celebrate her 10 million Twitter followers milestone, sweet Ariana Grande decided to release the studio version of her song "Pink Champagne". She performed this very-pop track many times during small shows last year and in early 2013. Why it didn't make it into "Yours Truly"?. It seems it was more Ariana's decision. Rumor has it she wasn't so fond of this "very pop" song, and in fact, scraped many of this style. Maybe include a few in album #2?. Keeping it real, I like "Pink Champagne" more than a couple of songs on "Yours Truly". In the video below, Ariana says she recorded "Pink" when she was 17.

"Pink Champagne" is cute. It's a fun song, and although in the studio version (this a very rough recording, though, as clarified by Ariana), her vocals vocals and the instrumental sound a tad different than in the live videos, I still like it.

Marc Jacobs and his Ugly Tattoos are Leaving Louis Vuitton



It's the end of an era!

Marc Jacobs is stepping down as the creative director of Louis Vuitton after clocking a whopping 16 years with the luxury label.

There's no denying that in that time, Jacobs—who introduced Louis Vuitton's first clothing line—helped transform what was once a luggage company into one of the world's most lucrative labels in the industry.
And in a move befitting his legendary tenure with the company, the fashion designer went out with a bang, giving fashion fans quite the presentation for his final collection with the French fashion house.

Guests like Lady Gaga, Anna Wintour and Kate Moss sat in the front row, where they took in a decadent runway set-up, including a carousel, hotel rooms and an elevator—all odes to sets from Jacobs' past runway shows—as well as a parade of models sporting ornate feathered headdresses.

The designer, who dedicated his last collection to "the women who inspire me and to the show girl in every one of them," received a standing ovation for his final bow.

So, what's next for the fashion guru?

According to Women's Wear Daily, Jacobs will concentrate on an IPO for his eponymous brand.
We know we can't wait to see what fab fashions he sends down the runway as he continues to grow his own label!

Speaking in the March 2011 issue of Harper's Bazaar, she admitted that she'd probably be an 'unbearable' grandmother, but she'd 'love' Chelsea to have children.

She said of the suggestion: 'Well, no pressure, because I don't want to be one of those kinds of mothers. But obviously, someday, I'd love it.'

When asked what kind of grandmother she thought she'd be, she added: 'Probably an unbearable one - the kind who is saying, "Oh, my gosh, I'll take the child, I'll do whatever you need to get done."

Chelsea later reassured her mother during a 2012 interview with Vogue, that she was gearing up to start a family 'in a couple of years'.

And now it appears that she and her husband of three years plan on becoming first-time parents next year.

They were recently spotted at the Clinton Global Initiative in New York looking more loved up than ever.

Marc, 35, looked adoringly at his wife as she appeared in a pretty bright orange dress. He once described her as 'the yin to [his] yang'.

The couple, both Stanford University graduates, met when they were teenagers, but didn't start dating until years later in 2005. They tied the knot during a lavish ceremony five years later.

While Marc works as an investment banker in New York, Chelsea, after dabbling in Wall Street, is now fully committed to helping shape her family foundation - and has even put her name on the door.

She has traveled extensively on behalf of  the Bill, Hillary & Chelsea Clinton Foundation - previously known as the William J. Clinton Foundation - and serves as vice chair.

She presided over a panel on noncommunicable diseases and announced several philanthropic commitments at the Clinton Global Initiative recently, including efforts to provide clean drinking water and promote the health of women and children in Latin America.

The youngest Clinton has hinted that politics could be in her future.

In an interview with CNN from Rwanda last month, she said she was 'attempting to lead a purposely public life' and that she might consider politics if she thought she could make a difference.

Work aside, she told Glamour that her main ambitions in life are to be 'a good wife, daughter, and friend' and she doesn't 'fundamentally care about making money.'

However, a hefty bank balance came in useful as she and Marc splashed out on a $10.5million, four-bedroom apartment earlier this year.

Their new marital home lays claim to being one of New York's longest apartment - stretching an entire block from 26th Street to 27th Street off Madison Avenue.

CoverGirl’s ‘Catching Fire’ Capitol Collection Is Shimmering Like The Light of a Thousand Fairies

We had a tease of CoverGirl’s makeup collection inspired by ‘The Hunger Games: Catching Fire’ a few weeks ago. Now, we are getting more of the collection with a focus on the nail art.
covergirl catching fire nail polishes

Smoochies Sizzle Gloss – Firecracker, Tickled Pink, Blind Date, Glow for It, Glisten Up!, Turn Up the Heat make up the shimmery palate that focuses on glossy sheen rather than full on wet and shiny finish.
CoverGirls Catching Fire Capitol Collection - nail decals - crimson blaze

Flame Up and Mega Curl Mascara – The wand has a curl friendly brush that promises to deliver 12 hours of smudge-proof wear.

Nail Decals – These decals overlay on any shade of polish you want. Red Hot Rebellion features Katniss’ arrows, Seared Bronze has a simple look with 6 gold thin beams running at an angle, ‘Inferno’ shows two flames surrounded by a gold ring, Crimson Blaze keeps it simple with one wider flame, Tawny Flame gives the outline of a fire and Flamed Out gives the look of gold banners running across your nail.

UPDATE - There are more images of the nail decals at the source, but they pretty much all look the same. [shrugs]

ABC Greenlights Miniseries Based On 'A Slave In The White House'.



Maybe we can thank a combination of Lee Daniels' The Butler and what I've fondly referred to as "slave movie fever," for this one. One blockbuster idea will often likely lead to a handful of facsimiles by others. This is how the business works folks, in case you weren't already aware.

We just learned that ABC has greenlit a 12-hour miniseries that will be based on the non-fiction novel, A Slave In The White House, which tells Paul Jennings' story - born into slavery on the plantation of James and Dolley Madison in Virginia, later becoming part of President Madison's staff at the White House. When he finally got his freedom, later in his life, he would give an aged and impoverished Dolley Madison, his former owner, money from his own pocket, write the first White House memoir (A Colored Man's Reminiscences Of James Madison) and see his sons fight with the Union Army in the Civil War.

He died a free man at age 75.

The book, written by Elizabeth Dowling Taylor, is considered a well-researched account of not only Jennings' life (based on correspondence, legal documents, and journal entries), but also a portrait of the times in which Jennings lived - slavery in the nineteenth century.

Kate Upon Covers Sports Illustrated Again—With Clothes (Sorry, Fellas)

rs_634x839-131002114918-634.sports-illustrated-kate-upton-braves.mh.100213

Color us shocked, but Kate Upton actually managed to keep her clothes on. (OP NOTE: wow that was rude)

After braving the cold climes of Antarctica to nab the coveted honor of being the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue cover model for the second year in a row earlier this year, the blonde stunner is back on the front of the sports weekly.

Only this time she's wearing an Atlanta Braves uniform and striking an All-American girl pose with the team's aptly named sibling stars, B.J. and Justin Upton, as part of the magazine's baseball playoff preview.

Talk about a triple play!

Before you go thinking she's a Braves fan, the 21-year-old Upton actually hails from Michigan (and at one time was rumored to be dating Detroit Tigers pitcher Justin Verlander).

Instead of doing the "Cat Daddy", perhaps we'll be seeing her do the Tomahawk Chop?

That's rather unlikely, though the model does have sports in the blood.

Her mom, Shelley, was a former Texas state tennis champion and Upton competed as a young equestrian at the national level. She's presumably also getting some free ballroom dancing lessons from her former DWTS pro boyfriend Maksim Chmerkovskiy.

Either way, putting Kate on the cover if you're the folks at SI is an automatic home run.

Miley Cyrus Tweets "Happiest Girl in the World" Ahead of MTV Special, SNL Gig and Album Bangerz!

rs_293x473-131001124615-634.miley-cyrus-snl.ls.10113

Miley Cyrus sure has a lot to be thankful for right now. And she's sure not shy about admitting it!

"Happiest girl in the world," the 20-year-old "Wrecking Ball" singer posted on Twitter this morning.

With her highly anticipated album Bangerz coming out soon, her MTV documentary Miley: The Movement premiering tonight and a Saturday Night Live hosting gig this weekend, we bet Miley's on top of the world!

Miley is currently in NYC prepping for SNL. Yesterday, her SNL promos came out and Liam Hemsworth's ex made a point to joke about her headline-making month.

PICS: Stars sound off on Miley's antics

"Miley, so happy to have you back. Forgive me, I don't watch TV or read the news, but what have you been up to since you last hosted?" castmember Taran Killam says to Cyrus in the clip.

Cyrus responds, "You might want to take a few minutes to Google me," before Killam leaves and shortly returns with a shocked look on his face and says, "You've been busy."

Miley also recently tweeted about her MTV documentary, writing, "Tomorrow #MileyTheMovement," along with a photo of an ad for the special hanging in Times Square.

Miranda Kerr Rips 'Stupid Driver' After Showing Up LATE to the Wrong Fashion Show



Don't screw with supermodel Miranda Kerr's schedule ... cuz if you do, she'll tear you apart in public -- like she did today when she ripped her "stupid driver" after he took her to the WRONG fashion show in Paris.

Miranda -- who's in the French capital for Fashion Week -- was already late when she arrived by car at the Louis Vuitton show ... then discovered -- to her horror --- that she was supposed to be at a completely different place ... the Vionnet show.

With no time to lose -- and her rep clearing a path on the sidewalks ... Miranda raced to the Vionnet show -- not easy to do in high-heeled, thigh-high boots.

Watch ... she's clearly not happy about her fashion faux pas ... and blames it on her "stupid driver."

Madonna Announces #ArtForFreedom Grants Program with Athony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers

Madonna has announced a grants program in coordination with Art For Freedom, the global digital initiative designed to fuel free speech, to address, respond and protest persecution around the world.

Madonna kicked off Art For Freedom on September 24, 2013 by posting Secretprojectrevolution, a 17-minute video she created with Steven Klein. The film – ‘a call to action’ – originally premiered on Vice and remains downloadable on Bit Torrent. Artists are encouraged to submit their own work on artforfreedom.com in the form of video, music, poetry or photography to express their personal meaning of freedom and revolution.
As part of the Art For Freedom initiative, Madonna has launched a grants program to support individuals and organizations working to advance social justice. Over the course of the next year she will select one artist each month whose creative expression helps fight oppression, intolerance and complacency. Madonna will award $10,000 to a nonprofit organization or project of the winning artist’s choice. All projects must be focused on a social justice issue and exemplify the values of Art For Freedom.
Madonna will select the winning submission each month with the help of a guest curator beginning with Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers.
Madonna commented…
I want to help give a creative voice to those who have been silenced and denied their human rights. Art for Freedom is a platform that gives artists a chance to define freedom through their art. We have already received many incredible submissions. I am inviting all people to express their thoughts on the subject of freedom whether it’s describing specific persecution they have experienced, sharing how their rights have been violated and / or sharing their ideas creatively regarding fighting injustice.
Art For Freedom, launched in partnership with Vice, received over 1000 submissions in the first 48 hours of its inception. These submissions and the ones that follow will become part of the Art For Freedom platform and will be eligible for the Arts For Freedom grants program. Contributors can join the project by uploading original artwork at www.artforfreedom.com or tagging original posts #artforfreedom.

Under Obamacare, Disney World Will Promote Its Part-Time Workers To Full-Time Status



The happiest place on earth just got a little happier.

Walt Disney Co. announced on Wednesday that it is offering full-time employment to the 427 part-time employees at its Disney World theme park in Orlando, Florida who work at least 30 hours per week — the threshold at which the Affordable Care Act requires large employers with 50 or more workers to offer basic health benefits to employees or risk paying a $2,000 per employee fine after the first 30 workers.

Disney already offers a level of health coverage that is acceptable under Obamacare to its full-time employees. But part-time workers, including those who work at the 30-hour cutoff set by the health law, receive more limited benefits. Instead of rolling back these workers’ hours to avoid expanding their health coverage, Disney is choosing to promote them to full-time status.

Benedict Cumberbatch & Emma Watson voted sexiest film stars



British actors Benedict Cumberbatch and Emma Watson have been voted the world's sexiest movie stars.

The Star Trek Into Darkness actor gained top spot in the 50 hottest males of the moment poll conducted by Empire Online, coming ahead of The Avengers star Tom Hiddleston, who took second place, and Man of Steel heart-throb Henry Cavill in third.

Harry Potter actress Watson earned the sexiest female movie star title, beating Scarlett Johansson in second and The Hunger Games favourite Jennifer Lawrence in third.

Other stars who featured high in the charts include Bradley Cooper, Ryan Gosling, Mila Kunis and Angelina Jolie.

James Dyer, editor of Empire Online, says, "It's a great result for British stars, but what's clear is that it's less important to have lots of casual fans and better to have a dedicated hard-core. The Cumberbabes, Hiddlestoners, Twi-hards and Cavilliers all made their opinions heard!"

Behold the KFC Go Cup, a Hands-Free Fried Chicken Holder for your Car



KFC has introduced a new menu item for people who absolutely have to have their fried chicken while driving. The KFC Go Cup fits in your car's cup holder and will never leave you stranded in traffic without your favorite fried chicken ever again.

The cups come filled with your choice of five different items, including the Chicken Littles (sandwiches with chicken, pickles and mayo), Original Recipe Bites, Hot Wings, Original Recipe Boneless or Extra Crispy Tenders. All of the varieties are served with crispy seasoned potato wedges.(Extra Crispy Tenders Go Cup clocks in at 540 calories and 1440 mg of sodium.)

The cups are sold for $2.49. No word on where you're supposed to put those little cups of dip while driving. Maybe they can invent a sort of headpiece with a dip straw for that. Remember the Burger King hands-free Whopper holder?

It should be noted that eating fried chicken in your car prior to the Go Cups was totally doable. You just had to, you know, deal with reaching into a paper bag and stuff

Taken by a T-Rex, ravished by a raptor ... Is the world ready for Dinosaur erotica?

Skärmavbild 2013-10-02 kl. 17.00.44

Jezebel reports that the books, which are short stories of no more than 20 pages long, are the work of two authors, Christie Sims and Alara Branwen, who also write dragon, orc and weretiger erotica.

The books, which are available to buy on Amazon, state in their seller description: ’Warning: This is a tale of beast sex. This story was written to unlock your darkest fantasies and innermost desires. It is not for the faint of heart and is not your mother's erotica.’


The book covers feature a scantily dressed young woman gazing lustfully out from some wild scene, with a dinosaur lurking sinisterly - or sexily, if that's your thing - in the background.

The dinosaur porn imagines a world where humans and dinosaurs existed together.

For the tale of In the Velociraptor’s Nest the protagonist Azog is a cavewoman, under appreciated in her tribe.

The synopsis says: ‘The cavemen treat her like a piece a meat. Azog cannot resist unless she proves herself as a hunter.

‘When she goes out in search of fresh meat, she discovers a clutch of baby velociraptors and decides to kill them and triumphantly bring them back to her tribe.

‘That is, until their father shows up and blocks Azog’s way out of the cave. Azog must use all of her womanly wiles to get out of the cave, which includes doing things she had never dreamed of.’

Mo'Nique May Join Already-Crowded Daytime Talk Show Circuit - In Talks w/ ABC To Host



In July, the rumor was that a new BET show had been offered, but that was never confirmed. Although maybe it wasn't entirely a rumor after all, as it's been formally announced today that Mo’Nique, is indeed in talks to host a new talk show, but not with BET.

Instead, the actress and comedienne is said to be working with ABC on a new talk show that could launch a year from now - September 2014.

What we now know is that it'll be a daytime talk show - not primetime, as was the case when she previously hosted The Mo’Nique Show on BET a few years ago,

She'll join an already very crowded daytime talk show circuit, with several new faces making their bids to be the next Oprah Winfrey (maybe not all of them). Even Naomi Campbell is rumored to be in talks to host her own daytime talk show.

Since BET cancelled her late night talk show, and 4 years since her Oscar-winning performance in Lee Daniels' Precious, Mo'Nique's been active in her private life primarily, losing a lot of weight, and occasionally sharing her struggles, and talking about her family on Twitter.

Her long-in-development Hattie McDaniel biopic, which she's attached to star in, doesn't seem to have made much progress since we first announced it 3 years ago. At the time, she said she wanted Lee Daniels to direct it.

And then there was the indie dramedy titled Bumped, which she was 'in talks' to co-star in 2 years ago, but that didn't happen.

So this will be her re-entry, if you will, into the business of show.
I'd actually say that, of all the current daytime talk show hosts, she might be the most interesting, and Oprah-like, given the personal life struggles they both share, from being sexually abused as children, to their public battles with weight, and a general willingness and fearlessness to share those struggles openly, which I think helps ground them, and make them seemingly accessible to audiences.

Jennifer Lawrence in Harper's Bazaar

article-0-1878002900000578-939_634x869

Jennifer Lawrence is gorgeous on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar UK magazine’s November 2013 issue, on newsstands tomorrow.

Here’s what the 23-year-old actress had to share with the mag:

On getting criticism for her 2013 Oscars speech: “[The other person said] Other people are getting up and owning the stage and you sound like a stuttering idiot. Pull it together.’ And I said, ‘I’m not doing it on purpose, I’m uncomfortable and when people get uncomfortable they resort to their sh*t. I make awkward jokes and stutter. That was actually a moment when I really wanted it to be special. That was not the time I wanted to be the Down-home Girl. I wanted to be graceful.”

On loving on set catering:
“My bodyguard Gilbert, right before they call ‘action,’ I’m like, ‘If there aren’t Cheez-Its here by the time they call cut, just go home.’ And he’ll start running. It cracks me up how seriously he takes it …. It’s not my performance that is motivating me. I want to get the on-set catering.”

On being called fat:
“I was young. It was just the kind of sh*t that actresses have to go through. Somebody told me I was fat, that I was going to get fired if I didn’t lose a certain amount of weight. They brought in pictures of me where I was basically naked, and told me to use them as motivation for my diet. It was just that. [Someone brought it up recently] They thought that because of the way my career had gone, it wouldn’t still hurt me. That somehow, after I won an Oscar, I’m above it all. ‘You really still care about that?’ Yeah. I was a little girl. I was hurt. It doesn’t matter what accolades you get. I know it’ll never happen to me again. If anybody even tries to whisper the word ‘diet’, I’m like, ‘You can go f*ck yourself.’”

Kanye West Praises Paparazzi in France For Showing Him “Respect”





While in France over the weekend for Paris Fashion Week, the rapper praised photographers for showing him consideration as they snapped his picture.
“I like how you guys, like, move out here. You’ve got like total respect for yourselves, have respect for the people that you’re photographing,” West told the gathered group.
He even asked to shake one pap’s hand, noting, “I understand that you have to make a living.”
The exchange, which also included the Grammy winner humbly introducing himself to a passerby who wanted to know who he was, marked a big departure for West after several recent run-ins with paparazzi in the U.S.
Perhaps the photogs in L.A. should take note.

Robert Downey Jr.'s Son Undergoing Drug Treatment

 photo indio-downey_zps202f63fa.jpg

Renowned actor Robert Downey Jr.'s 20-year-old son is undergoing treatment for substance abuse issues.

The Iron Man star's ex-wife Deborah Falcone, has revealed Indio is currently receiving "holistic, natural and orthomolecular" therapy at an undisclosed treatment facility.


She adds, "We are hoping to do it the homeopathic way rather than with medications. He's being treated with vitamin supplements and organic foods."

Falcone explains her son, who is a promising musician and actor, was only taking one prescription pain pill a day and does not have addiction issues.

Nevertheless, Downey Jr. reportedly fears his son is battling the same issues he fought 20 years ago, when he was in-and-out of drug rehab facilities and jail.

A source tells the National Enquirer, "This is a nightmare for Robert because his boy has never been in trouble before. He's praying for Indio's recovery."

The 'Breaking Bad' Legacy: Now That It's Over, Where Does It Stand?

A couple of weeks ago, I was asked if I was interested in writing a morning-after response to the Breaking Bad finale. I immediately said yes. I did this for two reasons. One of them I was aware of, the other I was not.

The one I was aware of is pretty rudimentary: I am a huge fan of Breaking Bad and have been a zealot of its Church of Awesomeness for years. It's spectacular TV -- spectacular storytelling -- and I am lucky to have borne witness to it. The opportunity to sing the show's praises one last time was not one I could possibly pass up.

“He Needs To Sit Down And Shut Up”: Wendy Williams Talks Kanye, Kim, And Why They Won’t Marry


Another week, another strong opinion for Wendy Williams to share. This time though, the talk show host didn’t treat anybody’s life during her “Hot Topics” segment on her show. Instead, she went as a guest on HLN’s Showbiz Tonight to talk about all things Hollywood, and that included Kimye.

During a very lame segment of the show where the host pretended celebrities actually wrote letters to Wendy asking them what they should do about situations in their life, they had fake letters from Kim and Kanye. Kim’s letter was asking what she could do about her struggling style these days (because you know Kanye is helping to dress her), and Kanye’s was basically asking how he can get folks to take him more seriously. In response to all this, Wendy shared, again, that she doesn’t believe the two will marry, and that Kanye is hopeless and needs to have several seats. Of course, she said in the past that Kim and Kanye would split “30 seconds after the baby is born,” but North is here, and what do you know? They’re still an item. But Wendy’s not buying it. Here are a few quotables from her interview:

"Baby Blue," the memorable 1972 Badfinger track that closes Breaking Bad as an ode to blue meth, was creator Vince Gilligan's idea. His music team didn't agree. Thomas Golubić, the show's music supervisor, kept picking alternate "blue" songs, all of which Gilligan politely rejected. "When he said, 'I think this is the right song for the closing of the finale,' I didn't really hear it," Golubić says. "I thought it was an odd little love song.

When I watched the ep for the first time, I thought this song was kind of jarring and took me out of the moment, but on re-watch I realize how well it really fits. What would have been your alternative suggestions for the final scene music, ONTD? Even though I now think that Baby Blue was right on the money, it did remind me of this song by Air (which also references 'Baby Blue'), which would perhaps have blended better with the initial mood, but I guess the genre would have been too OOC for BB.

Cara Delevingne and Rita Ora Party in Paris

tumblr_mu224uUrDZ1rpso4no1_500

We can imagine the sheer fashion pressure of hanging out with A-list supermodel Cara Delevingne at PFW is slowly getting to Rita Ora.

So perhaps it is understandable the Hot Right Now singer decided to snap up and attractively combine two of these season's great looks - a veil and some rather loud tartan.

With her hair in four top knots the singer rocked her face veil with a slick of loud red lipstick.

The effect on the crowds in Paris was dramatic and made even Cara's page boy bob wig with kaleidescope eye make-up look tame.

It was a change from earlier where Rita and Cara looked decidedly dressed down as they hung out in Paris - with model Cara opting for goofy glasses while Rita opted for some sort of bin liner jacket.

Earlier in the day Cara was the elfin featured star of the show as she opened the Chanel show.

Wonder Woman Fan Film Shows Up Hollywood



With superheroes dominating the box office and pop culture landscape, it's simply astonishing that there hasn't been a female-lead film added the mix yet. While Marvel has a dearth of male superheroes at their fingertips, DC's most famous heroes are arguably Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman. Yet, only Wonder Woman doesn't have her own series or film franchise to call home.

The latest rumors hint at Wonder Woman being a part of the Man of Steel sequel, Batman vs. Superman, and this is the closest she's been the silver screen in years. It's truly sad that she'd be playing third string to the big boys, and possibly only functioning as a love interest at that.

For some reason, Hollywood just can't get the Amazonian princess to the screen because she's "tricky." They can get countless super-men to work, including a gun-toting, talking Raccoon, but for some reason she is the "trickiest" one of them all.

We're at the point where fans are so demanding for a Wonder Woman feature, that Rainfall Productions has created a short film of their own highlighting her strength, beauty, and more. Without words, this short film has done more for Wonder Woman on screen than Big Hollywood has in the last thirty years.

Watch the fan made Wonder Woman short below:

'Bangerz' garnering positive reviews after all



Miley Cyrus' Bangerz debuted on Sept. 30 on iTunes before its official Oct. 8 release to a lukewarm response from critics.

More reviews are starting to trickle in, and they are more positive than the initial wave of response to the pop star's fourth studio album.

US Weekly's Ian Drew gives the album 4/4 stars and says it is a "titillating pop explosion." He singles out "SMZ (Bangerz)" saying, "this freaktastic tidal wave of dirty hip-hop (courtesy of producers such as Pharrell and will.i.am) features the ferocious Britney Spears duet." He adds that Bangerz "packs kiss-off anthems that point to her union with ex Liam Hemsworth," especially in the song "Drive." The lyrics are "forever's out the door!" and Drew also believes "so are her squeaky-clean Disney days."

Nick Catucci from Entertainment Weekly gives the album an A- (not too shabby) and thinks that the "merry rap-off with Britney" and the "woozy ballad 'My Darlin,'" are the best tracks.

Atlantis draws 5.8 million viewers to BBC One

AtlantisPoster


Atlantis, the BBC's lavish new fantasy adventure drew an average audience of 5.8 million on Saturday night(hopefully this means it will be cancelled!)

Reviews for Atlantis, which stars Jack Donnelly(what a downgrade from the amazing Colin Morgan) as Greek hero Jason have been positive with The Telegraph praising it as "action-packed, big fun Saturday evening entertainment".

The X Factor on ITV was watched by 7.8 million, down a million from last week's overnight figures.

An average 9.2 million people tuned in to the return of Strictly Come Dancing.

That was up from Friday's show, which drew 7.8 million.

With an overlap of just five-minutes the traditional Saturday night battle between The X Factor and Strictly was avoided, with Atlantis now filling the same time slot.

Written by Misfits creator Howard Overman and Merlin's Johnny Capps and Julian Murphy, the opening episode "boasts both a strong cast and terrific visuals", according to website Digital Spy.

Though in the same review, it claimed the show - which sees Jason arriving on the shores of the pre-sunken mythical island searching for his father "is sticking far too rigidly to a tried-and-tested format".

A BBC spokesman said: "Saturday nights on BBC One are back in style, with over 10 million viewers tuning in for Strictly and new fantasy adventure drama series Atlantis getting off to a brilliant start."

On Friday night, Channel 4's much-hyped Marvel spinoff Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D drew more than three million viewers, which came in slightly under Miranda 3.3 million on BBC One

The show, which sees Clark Gregg in the role of Agent Coulson, from Avengers Assemble and centres around a group which investigates strange activity in New York.

The finale of The IT Crowd, starring Chris O'Dowd, Katherine Parkinson and Richard Ayode was watched by 1.5 million.

I just watched tonight and it was awful. Juvenile, ridiculous and fucking awful. The main actor is so bad he makes Darren Criss look Oscar worthy(sorry bb), his less attractive, ditzy sidekick has a slappable face not to mention they have no chemistry(RIP Merlin/Arthur bromance) and no comments on Rob Baratheon(its not worth it), not to mention the fat bashing 'jokes' are stupid and offensive.

They have destroyed the myths and there are so many unintentionally funny moments and many funny 'drama' moments. No person of colour is in the main cast so I can't even bring myself to pity watch this shit after every so and so number of weeks. I am PMSing and the poor quality of the effects has somehow fuelled my anger even more than usual. I spit on this mess. Fuck you BBC.  and your TV license extorting asses. ITV would never.....

Sharon Osbourne asks Dannii Minogue to give her birthday gift back



Furious Dannii Minogue has hit out at her old enemy Sharon Osbourne and sent her a message to “shut up”. The Aussie singer was fuming after Sharon re-ignited their seven-year feud which began on The X Factor.

Sharon, 60, yesterday slated Dannii in her newly-published autobiography and called her “a little madam”. She mocked the songstress for holding on to a £1,800 Chanel handbag she had given her as birthday present which she had asked to be returned.

Now Dannii, 41, has hit back by endorsing the comment of one of her Twitter fans saying: “Wish Sharon Osbourne would just shut up now”.

And, posting a cartoon of a laughing face, she sent a message to Sharon: “Happy to give my birthday present back!!!!!!”

Masters of Sex Costumes: How the Show’s Charming, 1950s Attire Was Created

moss
Kentucky-born costume designer Ane Crabtree took a trip to the 50s this summer, as she designed the costumes for Showtime’s latest series, Masters of Sex. Set in 1958 St. Louis, the drama centers on the research of Virginia Johnson and William Masters (played by Lizzy Caplan and Michael Sheen, respectively)—findings that ultimately launched a sexual revolution in America. We caught up with Crabtree—who has designed costumes for Justified, Rectify, Luck and the pilot of The Sopranos—about where she found her inspiration for the show’s wardrobe, whether she saw Mad Men as a competitor, and how she went beyond the Peter Pan collar. Highlights from our chat:

Anyone's watching this show? I saw the pilot yesterday and it's so much better than I imagined.
