Miley Cyrus featured in Future's "Real and True" Music Video

1

Miley Cyrus took on a whole new identity in her latest project.

The foam-finger wearing, booty-shaking pop singer became what looks like an alien during the music video for rapper Future's single "Real and True," one of his tracks which features Miley.

The series of exclusive pictures from the video, releasing this Friday, show Cyrus covered in metallic body paint, while Future pretty much looks like himself—besides wearing an astronaut's uniform at one point (which makes sense since his nickname is Astronaut Kid).

Their work together on the track off his sophomore LP Honest (releasing in December) was just one of many collaborations.

No More Baby Weight! Kim Kardashian Reveals Post-Nori Diet



Kim Kardashian is back on her grind after spending a few months out of the spotlight taking care of new baby North West.

But now that she’s back on the scene, people are quickly realizing Kim’s sexier than ever and preparing to do big things. But exactly how has Kim managed to whip herself back into shape so quickly after giving birth? The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star replied to a fan’s question asking just that on Twitter:

“I’ve actually been doing the Atkins diet & luv it”

So Kim cut out the carbs, huh? It’s clearly working – she’s already lost 25 pounds!
The blonde beauty also recently showed off a new pair of kicks and told the world that Kanye is rehearsing for his tour, on which she and Nori will accompany him.

As you know, Kim is planning on rebranding herself; she’s hired a new publicist and it looks like this change in diet is really paying off. (Just check her out in that amazing gray dress above).

Kaley Cuoco swaps jeans for jodhpurs and displays her competitive streak at a show jumping event

article-0-18BFE35400000578-742_634x445

There have been some major changes in her personal life over recent months, but the one constant has been a love of horse-riding – and Kaley Cuoco was spotted indulging her passion for the equestrian sport on Monday.

The 27-year-old actress took some time away from her day job on Monday when she took part in a horse-jumping competition in Santa Barbara.

With her jeans traded for jodhpurs she looked markedly different as she trotted around the course lie a true pro, her blond locks tucked beneath a black riding hat.

Indeed, the actress appeared to navigate the short course with ease, often prompting her stallion to quicken the pace with a riding crop before leaping over a variety of obstacles – amongst them a parallel oxer and a triple bar.

Celebrities doing the #StarbucksDrakeHands

Quick refresher: Girl gives guy her number. Guy texts girl a video selfie of himself seductively stroking his face to a Drake song. Girl's friend uploads video to Instagram. Everyone LOLs. A meme is born.

#StarbucksDrakeHands has been going strong ever since, with the original girl, Piper Kennedy, and guy, Brody Ryan, scoring morning show interviews and late night TV appearances. And a slew of celebrity parodies.

Play Time's Over: Queen Bey's Back In December


Beyoncé isn’t going to let anyone steal her thunder.

With Lady Gaga, Katy Perry, Britney Spears and Miley Cyrus all behind much-hyped fall releases, Bey is planning to step up and knock them all out of the spotlight with new top-secret music she recorded a few weeks ago.


Beyoncé decided to wait until early December so her single will come out right after Gaga, Katy and Miley release their albums. It’s all because she wants everyone to know exactly who the queen is, a source tells Confidenti@l.

Buy KStew's childhood home and let her creative genius wash over you

She’s admitted to having a sheltered upbringing – but when that shelter happens to be an Alice In Wonderland themed home in the Hollywood Hills, one could be forgiven for not getting out much.



Indeed, the Twilight star enjoyed a comfortable upbringing with her two brothers in a secluded Southern California property that has just been listed at a healthy $1,750,000 – and with good reason.

Set back from a long driveway, the house looks modest enough when compared to the extravagance of neighboring Beverly Hills, but a series of photos reveal one or two additional flourishes to the accoutrements one would expect from such a home.

Mikhail Baryshnikov Slams Russia's 'Gay Propaganda' Law


Mikhail Baryshnikov has joined a growing chorus of celebrities, athletes and other public figures in denouncing Russia's "gay propaganda" law.

The Russian dance legend and actor ("Sex and the City") sounded off on the controversial legislation in an exclusive statement for the No More Fear Foundation, an international advocacy organization which is dedicated to helping members of the lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) community who face persecution in their home countries seek asylum in the U.S.

"My life has been immensely enriched by gay mentors, colleagues and friends and any discrimination and persecution of gay people is unacceptable," Baryshnikov, 65, said. "Equal treatment of people is a basic right and it is sad that we still have to even speak about this in [the] 21st century."

He went on to praise the No More Fear Foundation for "stepping in so quickly to provide the much necessary assistance" to the LGBT community. You can view Baryshnikov's full statement here.

Baryshnikov, who was born in Latvia to Russian parents and was a principal dancer with the Kirov Ballet in what is now St. Petersburg (formerly Leningrad), follows in the footsteps of Elton John, Cher, Madonna and Lady Gaga in his pro-gay proclamation toward Russia.

More on why Charlie Hunnam ran for the hills from 50 Shades of Grey



Universal Pictures and Focus Features haven't yet resorted to posting a woman-seeking-man personal ad on Craigslist. But in the wake of Charlie Hunnam's abrupt departure from Fifty Shades of Grey -- after what sources say was increasing conflict with the high-profile film's creative team -- the studio is left to scramble desperately for another actor to star opposite Dakota Johnson in the role of billionaire S&M fan Christian Grey so the project can meet a looming Nov. 1 start date.

Universal chairman Donna Langley, producers Michael De Luca and Dana Brunetti, director Sam Taylor-Johnson and author EL James are said to have drafted a list of four men they want to read for the role.
Although the list is being kept under NSA-level secrecy, THR.com revealed Oct. 13 that British TV stars Jamie Dornan, 31, and Christian Cooke, 26, are among the targets. Both actors came close to capturing the part the first time around but lost to Hunnam because the Sons of Anarchy star is a bigger name. (True Blood's Alexander Skarsgard also is being considered.)

Dornan could be emerging as a front-runner.

Pope Trumps the President



WASHINGTON — I’d heard about a medical malady you can get from watching too much cable news. You start feeling jittery and apprehensive about the future.

But I’d never experienced it until a recent night, when I had to turn off the rant-around-the-clock shows reporting on political vandals vitiating the good name of a country they claim to love, scrapping in the weeds over nothing while dancing on the precipice of an international financial collapse.

I flipped around and paused at ABC’s “Scandal.”

I’d never gotten into “Scandal” because it seemed too outlandishly over-the-top, a silly sex-and-murder-fueled Washington soap opera.

Shonda Rhimes took the story of Judy Smith, a deputy press secretary for Poppy Bush who became a crisis manager, and melded it with the story of Smith’s most famous client, Monica Lewinsky. Rhimes, who became wealthy by never underestimating the appetite of the American public for devilish, dervish plots, cut out the middleman — or middlewoman — and made the crisis manager the president’s mistress.

Bookies link Cillian Murphy to 50 Shades role



Speculation continues over who will play the role of Christian Grey in Fifty Shades of Grey after Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the project and Cillian Murphy's name is on the list.

Paddy Power is spearheading White Collar and Magic Mike star Matt Bomer, 36, as their 2/1 favourite according to The Mirror and Murphy is the leading Irish man to play the billionaire at 6/1.

The 37-year-old Batman star could land the role opposite Dakota Johnson who will play Anastasia Steele.

However Murphy isn't the only Irish actor on the list as Jonathan Rhys Meyers is at 25/1 and Colin Farrell is also there with 33/1.

Other hotly tipped actors include Alex Pettyfer at 3/1, Lost actor Ian Somerhalder at 4/1 with Ryan Gosling and Superman's Henry Cavill both at 5/1.

A Paddy Power spokesman said: “Bomer is very much the fans’ choice which puts him in pole position but, like the novel, there could be a few more twists and turns in store.”

Nina Dobrev Splits From Derek Hough: What Went Wrong



Derek Hough's dance card is once again open. A little less than two weeks after their first public date, the Dancing With the Stars pro and girlfriend Nina Dobrev have split, sources reveal in the new issue of Us Weekly.

The couple of six weeks -- who hit up Universal Studios' Hollywood Halloween Horror Nights in L.A. on Oct. 5 -- decided recently that the relationship had "played itself out," one insider tells Us. Geography was a factor, too: Hough, 28, is filming DWTS in L.A., while Dobrev, 24, is shooting The Vampire Diaries in Atlanta, Ga.

Us Weekly first exclusively revealed that the two were dating in late September. "[Nina] was hanging a lot with Derek's sister Julianne," a source told Us at the time. "Then she fell for him."

And he for her. "Derek is smitten with Nina," the insider added. "He said he hasn't felt this way for a girl in a long time...Everyone approves!"

Alas, the relationship seems to have run its course. But Dobrev's friendship with Julianne is still intact. "Julianne understands -- there are no hard feelings," another source tells Us of the Safe Haven star and the CW actress, who split from costar Ian Somerhalder in May after three years of dating.

Joe Jonas: Chateau Marmont Meeting with Kevin!



Joe Jonas keeps his hands in his pockets after meeting with his brother Kevin Jonas at the Chateau Marmont on Tuesday night (October 15) in West Hollywood, Calif.

The two Jonas Brothers singers were spotted together for the first time since announcing their tour cancellation due to a “rift” in the band.

After the meeting, Joe headed to Bar Marmont while Kevin left with their mutual pal, addiction specialist Mike Bayer.

Earlier this week, Joe stepped out solo after reports that he had bailed on attending a meeting with Kevin and their younger brother Nick Jonas in New York City.

Pacific Rim 2: Electric Boogaloo

pacific-rim-05

Despite a soft start in the United States, Guillermo del Toro's "Pacific Rim" has proven to be one of the solid hits of the Summerwith a very healthy $408 million global box-office tally so far.
Coming in at a cost of $190 million, it's uncertain right now whether that box-office is enough for Warner Brothers to move forward with a sequel. Whatever the case, del Toro is already preparing the way.
Speaking to IGN about the Blu-ray release of PacRim, del Toro says:
"We are writing the sequel. Travis Beacham and I are writing, so that is active. The decision to green light or not, that’s definitely above my pay rate."
He also spoke about his "Pinocchio" project which he says is currently looking for a new producing partner after one of their previous ones gave up on filmmaking altogether.
del Toro is presently at work preparing for the gothic horror thriller "Crimson Peak".

Brooklyn Nine-Nine finds humor in humanity, not stereotypes



Andy Samberg’s “Brooklyn Nine Nine” character, Detective Jake Peralta is seated at his desk at the police precinct, head in hands and hung over when he receives an antidote from fellow detective Amy Santiago (Melissa Fumero), one handed down by her grandfather: a glass of raw egg yolks. “You look like the corpse we just pulled out of the river,” says their commander, Captain Ray Holt (Andre Braugher), as he walks in. Jake plays it off by claiming the drink is part of his fitness routine.

“You should drink it all,” Holt deadpans and pauses. “For your guns.”

It’s an amusing line the way the Emmy-winning Braugher dryly delivers it during a recent taping on the show's Los Angeles set. Samberg is inspired to improvise different endings that involve consuming the drink, insulting Santiago’s grandfather and trying to one-up Braugher. Soon, both actors are cracking up.

Michael Fassbender is wary of fame-hungry girls

British actor Michael Fassbender fears women are only interested in him because of his fame.

The star of “X-Men: First Class” and “Prometheus” is amazed at his surging popularity with the opposite sex since he shot to stardom as a Hollywood actor, but he is wary of women’s motives.

He tells GQ magazine, “You become a lot more successful in terms of, like, talking to a girl. She’s all of a sudden more interested in me. I know that, like, three years ago, she would’ve walked away after two sentences left my mouth. …?

I was talking to this girl. I was like, ‘God, I am so boring right now’. But she was like, ‘That’s so interesting!’ I was like, ‘You know what? Five years ago, this would not have been interesting’.”

A 35-year-old stuntman was reportedly stabbed in the shoulder on the set of Fury, a World War II film starring Brad Pitt. One stuntman accidentally stabbed another during a rehearsed action sequence, according to a statement from the production company. The stuntman was airlifted to Oxford’s John Radcliffe Hospital after the incident, according to Variety.

David Ayer is directing the film about a group of Americans executing a mission in Nazi Germany at the end of the Second World War. Shia LaBeouf also stars in the movie set to release in November of 2014.

IT'S ABOUT TO BE A, WHAT!? GIRLFIGHT!: RHOA's NeNe/Marlo Get Into Altercation, Kenya Involved


Youtube personality and Atlanta blogger, The Doll, Miss Funky Dineva Ross attended Cynthia Bailey's Bailey Agency Event last week, which was filmed for Real Houswives of Atlanta's upcoming 6th season. He had this to say, albeit limited information, about the altercation:

Out of respect for people I love and some documents I signed, I didn’t share with y’all the details of an altercation that went down with Nene & Marlo at Cynthia Bailey’s event last week. The camera’s were rolling and the spectators were plentiful. Long story short, Marlo confronted Nene about some mounting tension between them and things escalated into a big shouting match that ended with Nene running up in the face of one of the producers and going off. That’s the short of it. No tea no shade, the altercation isn’t even where all the tea lays. All the tea lays in the back-story to the altercation.  Trust and believe Kenya’s a$$ is caught up in this mess. It’s deep y’all. I’ll spill this tea when the time is right aka when my lawyers let me know what my rights are considering I signed them damn confidentiality agreements.

Since the altercation, rumors have been circulating that Marlo Hampton has been fired from the real housewives of Atlanta. When i first heard this, it didn’t even sound halfway legitimate. Me being the resourceful and friendly person I am, I made a few phone calls and got down to the bottom of it all. Catch these T’s:

The LORDe stans Rihanna, would like to write a song for her



Lorde – whose ‘Royals’ has done reasonably well in America – has a) met up with Dr Luke and would b) like to write songs for Rihanna and Ellie Goulding AND K-Pop acts.

Chatting away in the forthcoming issue of Clash Lorde says, in response to a question about her new-found success making her phone ring: ”I’ve heard from lots of people – almost too many to mention! But Dr Luke was particularly impressive. It’s like, “you’re Dr Luke. You’re like Rambo”. He’s pop royalty. I imagine him living in some ice palace with Nordic maidens and windchimes. He’s cool. I find what he does so fascinating.”

Basically she met him and it was amazing. The idea, it seems, is that she’ll write for other artists.

“I haven’t written for other artists yet but I definitely want to,” she adds. “Obviously lyrics are a huge part of my music, and they’re so personal to me, so… It’ll be such a challenge to step out of my body. I can’t wait. Rihanna would be fun to write for because she’s done EVERYTHING. And I’d love to write for – or with – Ellie Goulding, actually.”

When it’s suggested that she just invents a girlband and gives them loads of songs, she says: “Girlbands are only cool if they’re so ridiculous it’s awesome, like the K-Pop girlbands with twelve people who rule the country. I’d write for a Korean girlband, definitely – some of their melodies are the best pop.”

Mischa Barton: The Truth About Her Breakdown



Ten years ago, the hit TV series The O.C. made 17-year-old Mischa Barton an instant "it" girl. Within a few years, however, she was the talk of Hollywood for a different reason as her partying grew out of control.

"We thought, 'Work hard, play hard,' " she says of those years. In 2007, she was arrested for DUI. Then in 2009, shortly after her parents attempted an intervention, she blacked out under the influence of a sedative and landed in the Cedars-Sinai Medical Center psychiatric ward under an involuntary 5150 hold after she threatened to kill herself.

"It was a full-on breakdown," she tells PEOPLE, speaking about the events in detail for the first time in this week's cover story. "I was under enormous pressure."

'Free Ke$ha' Movement Strikes Again, Releases Raw Demos

Ke$ha's voice comes through loud and clear on a pair of new demos leaked by her frustrated fans.

For more than a month now, a rather resolute group of Ke$ha fans have been circulating a petition to free their favorite artist from the clutches of producer Dr. Luke, whom they accuse of stunting her growth as an artist by forcing her to sing "the same generic, predictable, recycled pop songs."

To date, the petition has been signed by more than 3,000 fans, and now, the "Free Ke$ha" movement is presenting its most compelling argument to date: a pair of unreleased (and decidedly De-Lukeified) demos that not only find Ke$ha flying her freak flag, but showcase her voice rather than the Good Doctor's studio polish.

Lindsay Lohan Makes Cameo in 30 Seconds To Mars Video "City Of Angels"



30 Seconds To Mars just released a music video to "City Of Angels" during a recent concert at the Hollywood Bowl. The video and the song pay homage to Los Angeles, and features several monologues from celebrities who talk about why the city means so much to them outside of just being the location where they cut their teeth in the entertainment industry. One of the more prominent cameos in the video comes from Kanye West. Kanye talks about what Los Angeles means to him, referring to Crips and Bloods, muscle cars, and Snoop Dogg. Kanye also added that Los Angeles is where his mother passed prematurely, but at the same time is the birth place of his child, North West. He also offers this rather compelling gem:

"People let their frustrations out on me. I love Kanye West. They say the opposite of that, but I'm not going to say that. I'm only going to say what I want to put into the universe."

"City Of Angels" is the fourth song off of 30 Seconds To Mars' most recent album, Love, Lust, Faith, and Dreams. Other cameos in the video include Lindsay Lohan and Selena Gomez.

Since Miley Cyrus’s new album, Bangerz, dropped last week, it seems like everyone’s talking about it — even the Queen of Pop herself, Britney Spears. And after working with Miley on the album’s title song, “Bangerz (SMS),” Britney’s gotta admit it: she’s impressed.

In an interview with London’s 95-106 Capital FM (via E! Online), Britney mentioned that she’s a “huge fan” of Miley’s.

And not only do Britney and Miley share a manager, Larry Rudolph, but they both hail from the South, something that Britney says unites them. “My mom and her mom know each other," Britney said. "She's a girl's girl and she gets the whole Southern thing."

And, after finding out the love was mutual, Britney was thrilled. “She has so much energy and she's on fire,” Britney said, “so for her to even say anything about me is just really cool.”

We imagine Miley’s thrilled to hear such kind words from someone she idolizes so much. “She was my first record,” Miley said in her MTV documentary, Miley: The Movement. “I’ll be a diehard fan for Britney, always.”

The Happily Divorced actress stepped out with her new boyfriend, Shiva Ayyadurai, at the premiere of Bridegroom at the Academy Motion Picture Arts and Sciences in Beverly Hills, Calif., on Tuesday, Oct. 15.

Drescher, 59, and Ayyadurai, 49, were "very affectionate," an insider revealed to Us Weekly. At one point, the former Nanny star grabbed his hand and pulled him in close. "He [gave] her a kiss," the eyewitness added. "They [were] all smiles and [seemed] very into each other and very much in love."

Ayyadurai developed a full-scale emulation of a mail system he called "EMAIL" as a high school student in 1978 and copyrighted it in 1982.

Drescher revealed that she loves to cook with the Indian-American scientist and they are currently throwing around ideas for a couple-themed Halloween costume. "I don't think we've decided yet but we know what we're doing. We've got some really good parties to go to and Iron & Wine, which is one of my favorite bands, is playing down at the Orpheum so we're gonna be doing all that," the Queens native added.

It has led people to believe that Brit and the 'Applause' singer may be teaming up as it was revealed yesterday that she has a song called 'Aliens' on her forthcoming album. It would not be the first time they have worked together as Gaga wrote the song 'Quicksand' for her 2008 album 'Circus.'

Will.i.am is the executive producer on 'Britney Jean' and has therefore already heard the song, he revealed on Twitter:

“The song @britneyspears did with #williamORBIT is fabulous and out of this world... #THEbritneyARMYwillBEproud.”

To which Britney replied: “@iamwill @williamorbit That song is from another planet. I hope Earth is ready!!! :).”

Britney's album 'Britney Jean' is due for release on December 3 and her current single 'Work B***h' is out now.

Jessica Biel [Timberlake] Gets Into the Eco-Accessories Business



It looks like creativity runs in the Biel family. Jessica Biel, along with her younger brother Justin and his childhood friend Grason Ratowsky, launched Bare, an eco-accessories line, which creates products out of recycled coffee sacks.

Train's Pat Monahan on working with Taylor Swift, maybe confirms RED Deluxe re-release?



Train frontman Pat Monahan has started writing songs for the band's next album, and when that finally arrives, it just may have a song on it that he co-wrote with Taylor Swift. But according to Pat, yet another tune the two wrote together may show up even sooner than that.

Pat tells ABC News Radio that when he told Taylor that he wanted to collaborate with her on a song for Train's next album, she asked him to write a song with her for her album, Red. The track didn't make the album, but Pat says eventually, when Taylor puts out a deluxe re-released version of Red, "the song, I think, will be on there." "It's a song called 'Babe,'" continues Pat. "So it's her song; I was just lucky enough to be a part of it with her, and I'm gonna ask the same of her in the future."

While Pat has quite a few years on Taylor when it comes to songwriting experience, he says he's full of admiration for her talents. "She's very talented, she's a no-nonsense young kid," Pat tells ABC News Radio. "Y'know, she's, like, a serious thing."

Pat says he also appreciates the fact that Taylor has so much skill at writing songs about topics that he doesn't even consider. "I'm not going through different relationships and breakups and all the stuff that young people do, so her perspective is very fresh," he says. "And I think that that's what I admire the most [about her]."

Seth Meyers' Wife Was Hospitalized On Her Wedding Day



You would never know it from the beautiful pictures, but Seth Meyers' wife, Alexi Ashe, was advised not to marry the Saturday Night Live star in September.

And not only advised, doctors told her she was not going to get married that day.

The reason? Food poisioning from a bad oyster.

"The rehearsal dinner the night before, my wife, to begin with the MVP of the wedding as most wives are," the funnyman said on The Late Show With David Letterman on Tuesday, Oct. 8. "Plan the whole thing. Every detail. Day before the wedding, eats an oyster. Food poisoning. Knocks her out."

"Top notch catering," David Letterman quipped.

"I said, like let's try to save it, I'll get the oysters, I know a guy," Meyers joked.

But it was no joke. The next morning Ashe took a turn for the worse and she went to the hospital.

"I go to the emergency room, I meet her there and she's just like knocked out, like fully knocked out on a gurney like a person looks before the end," Meyers revealed.

Yikes.

"A nurse walks in and just takes one look at her and says ‘you're not getting married today,'" Meyers said. "And it was like my wife turned into the star of an action movie who's been like knocked down and you think he's done and someone says, that villain says one last thing, and she like propped herself up on her elbows and she's like 'I'm getting married today!'"

And that she did.

The duo exchanged vows during a star-studded ceremony on Martha's Vineyard in Massachusetts on Sunday, Sept. 1.

Celebrity attendees included Olivia Wilde, Jack McBrayer, Ali Larter, Olivia Munn, Allison Williams, Rashida Jones and Nick Kroll, as well as SNL's Kristen Wiig, Andy Samberg, Fred Armisen, Amy Poehler, Jimmy Fallon, Kenan Thompson, Will Forte, Lorne Michaels and Taran Killam.

So how is married life treating Meyers?

"I'm officially not winning any more arguments," he said of his human rights attorney wife. "Ever again."

Kendall & Kylie Jenner Hit Up Sex-Themed 21-And-Over Nightclub Illegally




16-year-old Kylie Jenner and 17-year-old Kendall Jenner went out on the town last night ... partying at Vignette lounge in West Hollywood -- a 21-and-over club, and it appears the club and the girls broke the law.

The club features Wax Rabbit every Tuesday night, featuring what the club calls "a new, voyeuristic, hip hop and nudity nightclub experience."

So the burning question -- how did Kylie and Kendall legally get in the club. We did some digging, and found the ONLY exception to the 21 and over law is if the underage person is employed as a musician, but the musician must be 18 minimum. Neither girl is 18.

Game of Thrones: Three-Eyed Raven cast

It looks like a mysterious figure from beyond the Wall will be making an appearance on Game of Thrones in season 4. According to his agency resume, British actor Struan Rodger has been cast in the role of the Three-Even Raven.



The character (called the Three-Eyed Crow in the A Song of Ice and Fire novels) is connected to Bran Stark and his quest for understanding the visions that have come to the boy since he was pushed from the tower at Winterfell.

Rodger is a familiar face in British film and television, turning up in programs such as Chandler & Co., Rumpole of the Bailey, The Thick Of It, and Law and Order UK. He memorably lent his voice to two episodes of Doctor Who as the Face of Boe. His film credit highlights include Kill List,Stardust, Young Adam, Chariots of Fire, Four Weddings and a Funeral, and The Madness of King George.

BFF Alert! Katy Perry and Kate Hudson Have Game Nights at Home Together

Clearly our invite to game night got lost in the mail (but hopefully there's another on the way). Katy Perry and Kate Hudson weren't just playing nice for the cameras at the amfAR Gala last year, they're actually friends! And Perry (whose real name is actually Katheryn Hudson—twinsies!) revealed just how close of pals the two beauties are during the SiriusXM Town Hall yesterday.

"When we text, it's like 'Hudson here,'" Perry said. "We are buds and we get along…We have become friends and go to game nights together, we play this game called Mafia…we play it all the time."

The 28-year-old continued, "We stopped going to clubs and we started staying home and having game nights, which is really fun. And she is super-cool, she is gorgeous, to die for."

Scott Disick, Kendall and Kylie Jenner Flipped Off During Runway Show? "It Was All in Fun"



Did Scott Disick, Kendall Jenner and Kylie Jenner get flipped off by a runway model?!

Last night, the three Keeping Up With the Kardashians stars hit the Day by Day fashion show at L.A. Live.

During the show, model Caroline D'Amore was seen sticking up her middle finger in the trio's direction while they happily watched on from the front row.

So was D'Amore's bird-flipping a big diss?

No, in fact, an onlooker at the shows tells E! News that the beauty, who has a long friendship with Kim Kardashian and family, was just having fun with her pals.

It's also clear that the Jenner girls and Disick didn't take offense to the one-finger salute as they were snapped smiling from ear to ear while watching D'Amore strut her stuff.

Collapse )

After the show, Disick went up to Day by Day designer Cedric Benaroch to pal around on the runway. While some are saying Kourtney Kardashian's other half tried to obnoxiously pull Benaroch from the stage, a source tells us, "Cedric wasn't mad at all," adding that the two actually are friends and it was all just joking around. "It was all in fun," the source says.

Also in attendance at last night's event were supermodel Alessandra Ambrosio and fiancé Jamie Mazur, as well as Justin Bieber's pal Lil Twist, who actually arrived with the Jenners and sat next to them during the fashion show.

After the bash, Disick and the Jenner gals met up with sister Khloé Kardashian Odom at an afterparty.

Oreos May Be As Addictive As Cocaine



Those cookie crumbs clinging to the corners of little Timmy's mouth may be the telltale sign of a full-blown addiction -- especially if they're Oreo crumbs.

According to a study from students and professors at Connecticut College, lab rats find Oreo cookies to be as addictive as cocaine.

"Our research supports the theory that high-fat/high-sugar foods stimulate the brain in the same way that drugs do," said Joseph Schroeder, associate professor of Neuroscience at Connecticut College.

AMERICAN HORROR STORY: COVEN VIEWING POST + SARAH PAULSON INTERVIEW

Sarah Paulson: 'American Horror Story' Is Too Scary for Me



Last season on American Horror Story: Asylum, Sarah Paulson played Lana Winters, a performance that found her toeing the line between sanity, rage and depression. That masterful turn solidified her as one of Hollywood's most promising, if underrated, talents. Now she's back, starring in the newest Horror Story installment, Coven, and also the heavily-buzzed about film 12 Years a Slave, opposite Michael Fassbender. Rolling Stone spoke with Paulson about voodoo, parades and the injustices of the 19th century.

In the new Horror Story season, you play Cordelia Foxx, a witch teacher. How would you describe her?
I'd describe her as a by-the-book kind of gal. I'd describe her as goodness personified, but the fact remains that she's the daughter of Fiona (played by Jessica Lange), so it can't be all benign and benevolent. She tries to lead that way – she tries to be the opposite of her mother.

"The Emancipation of Mimi" hits 6 million in sales


Mariah Carey's 2005 album The Emancipation Of Mimi tops the 6 million mark in U.S. sales this week. The album was #1 for two weeks and received a Grammy nomination for Album of the Year. This is Carey's third album to be certified at the 6 million mark. It follows Daydream (7,657,000) and Music Box (7,277,000). Carey has two other albums on Nielsen SoundScan's running list of the 200 best-selling albums in its history: Merry Christmas (5,299,000) and Mariah Carey (4,885,000). (The latter album, Carey's 1990 debut, sold additional copies prior to Nielsen SoundScan's 1991 launch.) Carey is the only female solo artist with five albums on Nielsen SoundScan's top 200 list. How about Celine Dion? She currently has four. The Colour Of My Love has sold 4,558,000 copies, which puts it 10K copies short of making the list.

Your Fave Stars Without Makeup!


Normani from Fifth Harmony

The latest star to try the all-natural look? Normani of Fifth Harmony! The singer posted an Instagram picture of herself sans makeup with a powerful caption:

"#unprettymonday I always thought that I was okay & not the most beautiful girl there was. I use to get teased about my eyebrows and how thick they were," she started. "But this flaw has become my greatest asset and I take pride in them. You came into this world without makeup which is just the way God created you. As much make-up, extensions, plastic surgery you get it's irrelevant without believing that you are beautiful."

Celebs like Rihanna, Demi Lovato, Zendaya, Bella Thorne and Peyton List are all on board with the no makeup trend, too.

Harry Styles Avoiding His Bandmates?



Harry Styles may be surrounded by people constantly during One Direction's Take Me Home tour, but new reports claim that the curly haired cutie has been suffering from "terrible homesickness and exhaustion," with the singer "desperate to chill with people away from the band."

Harry has to spend months away from his friends and family, with the band currently touring the globe with their tour, but sources have said that it might be getting a bit too much for the 1D stud.

A source told Heat magazine: ''He suffers from terrible homesickness and exhaustion towards the end of a tour.

''He often wakes his personal trainer Mark in the middle of the night because he's so lonely that he'd prefer them to work out together than be on his own.''

The insider continues to say that Hazza prefers "being away from his bandmates" when the group have some time off and is so desperate to see some familiar faces, that he is reportedly flying his father Des and sister Gemma out to join him in Australia so he has more company on the road.

The source explained: ''He wants people to chill with away from the band.''

It was previously claimed Harry stays with pal Nick Grimshaw when he's in London because he hates being alone in his own house, and that he stayed over during London Fashion Week.

A source said: ''Harry may have splashed the cash on his house, but if no one's sleeping over he hates staying there.

''It's depressing for him having the whole place to himself. He's used to having his bandmates around because they're normally flying all over the world, staying in hotels.

''So when he has free time in London, he now heads over to Nick's place.''

This report was quickly dismissed Nick Grimshaw's rep, who said that Harry hadn't stayed over once at the radio DJ's house during Fashion Week.

Natalie Portman Talks Moving to Paris, Dealing With Drunk Fans and Avoiding Confrontation



Natalie Portman shows some serious skin in the November issue of Marie Claire. Modeling a midriff-baring Dior Haute Couture dress, the 32-year-old Oscar winner strikes a seductive pose for the magazine's cover. In the accompanying interview, the actress dishes on everything from her new life in France to the lessons she's learned from her parents.

The Israeli-born beauty says she will move the City of Light "at the end of next year." The reason? Her French choreographer Benjamin Millepied, has been named director of the Paris Opera Ballet. Portman says she's going to miss California. "I just really, really love it here," says the star, who was raised primarily on the East Coast. "It's one of the most exciting places to be in the world right now. It's really central in terms of the arts. It feels like things are happening in L.A., you know? New York is more where art is bought than where art is made."

"I'm really lucky," she adds. "When Ben asked me if I wanted to go to Paris, I freaked. Everyone dreams of living in Paris."

Watch: 'Hell No: The Sensible Horror Film' Where Characters Make Smart Decisions

Does it drive you crazy when characters in horror films make outrageously bad decisions -- like going skinny dipping when there's a mad man on the loose in the woods or insisting on staying in a haunted house even though the walls are pulsating? Then you'll love this short film/faux trailer for a non-existent horror film, "Hell No: The Sensible Horror Film" where, for once, characters make smart decisions and don't put their lives in danger for the sake of creating dramatic tension...

Directed by Austin-based filmmaker Joe Nicolosi (one of Filmmaker Magazine's 25 New Faces of Independent Film in 2011) and written by Nicolosi and John Freiler, "Hell No: The Sensible Horror Film" is worth a watch (see how many horror films you can reference!).

Louis Tomlinson thinks that Simon Cowell should pay for his HUGE phone bill

LouisTomlinson

We do feel for One Direction, we really do. Away from their family and friends for weeks and weeks at a time, it must be hard.

So, it's not that surprising to hear that the boys are notching up some pretty big phone bills. Phone bills that Louis Tomlinson reckons Simon Cowell should pay for.

"Our data charges are quite ridiculous really. In no time the bills become massive as my mates will keep on ringing and chatting. They don't know or maybe they don't care that it's me paying the bill," complains Louis in The Sun.


Well, they know now.

"So far Simon hasn't shown any interest in paying. It's time he started to dig deep," Louis adds.


What, with a baby on the way. You'll be lucky.

We have just a couple of comments about this. Surely millionaire boy band members can afford to pay their own phone bill? And hasn't Louis ever heard of Skype or Facetime?

First Stills of 'Mr. Peabody and Sherman'



They might have been absent for a few decades, but the time-traveling duo of Mr. Peabody & Sherman are back for their greatest adventure — big-screen domination.
DreamWorks Animation is reviving the tale of the genius dog known as Mr. Peabody and his adopted human son, Sherman, an animated staple from the Rocky and Bullwinkle Show in the late '50s and early '60s. It will be released in 3-D on March 7.
"These are timeless characters," says director Rob Minkoff, "The nature of this relationship and Mr. Peabody's classic character — that has never gone out of style."
Nor does time travel go out of vogue, even if the Peabody-invented WABAC (pronounced "way back") machine has been updated for the iPad generation. It still allows the duo to visit any time period for Sherman's ultimate history lessons.
"The latest technology is that Mr. Peabody has combined time travel with flight," Minkoff says. "You can you actually fly through a wormhole into your historical destination, then fly the craft around once you are there. It's a little 2.0."
Emmy winner Ty Burrell gives voice to the self-assured, bespectacled canine father in the relationship, which gives a new meaning to Modern Family. But Burrell says his first animated part stretched him — he had to play it straight.

Bishop T.D. Jakes Slams New Reality Show ‘Preachers of L.A.’ : ‘The Devil Is A Lie’

Preachers-of-L.A.
The new reality show “Preachers of L.A.” was supposed to shine a light on some of the most popular pastors on the scene today, but not everybody is welcoming Oxygen’s latest series with open arms. The show features Bishop Noel Jones, Deitrick Haddon, Bishop Clarence McClendon, Pastor Wayne Chaney, Bishop Ron Gibson, and Pastor Jay Haizlip as men of faith and flaws, riding around in Bentleys, wearing expensive designer suits and living in multimillion dollar homes while doing the Lord’s work. As some of the leaders of “prosperity preaching,” their message is that all it takes is faith, positive thoughts and speech, and making sure you regularly tithe and donate to the ministry in order for God to bless you financially.

Apparently Bishop T.D. Jakes is not trying to hear any of that noise because on Sunday while he was asking for his congregation to donate to his ministry, he made sure to rebuke the show and all it stands for.

“Now, I know you been watching that junk on TV. I want to tell you right now, not one dime of what you’re sowing right now will buy my suit. I want you to know my car is paid for. I want you to know I got my house on my own. I want you to know I’m not bling-blinging. I am not shake and bake. I had money when I came to Dallas and I plan to have some when I leave. You did not buy what I got. I had it when I came here. You know I had it when I came here. The devil is a lie! I have sold enough books and produced enough movies. I don’t need your offering to pay for this little slimy suit. So I rebuke that spirit in the name of Jesus Christ.”

Aside from the flashy cars, mansions and jewelry, many people have also criticized the shows’ star Deitrick Haddon, who last year announced that he was divorcing his wife of 15 years, and shortly after that, got his girlfriend Dominique McTyer pregnant. They have a 1-year-old daughter together and just got married back in August.

Meanwhile, although T.D. Jakes is not amused, famed gospel singer Fred Hammond took to Twitter to defend “Preachers of L.A.,” while saying that the same people that are criticizing these pastors, are in front of their TV, celebrating ‘Scandal’ on Thursday nights:

“I heard an interesting observation that’s extremely true. Because Soooo many ppl are up in arms about this tv show. Great point @TWH_PhD I wonder how many ppl who watched #PreachersOfLA & displeased with it, will be watch’n & celebrating Scandal 2night?

When I was in commissioned I almost gave up because I felt like my issues were to much. But a really great pastor took the time and care to be transparent & showed me his faults, struggles. I woulda never thought he had stuff. He didn’t glory in it but his transparency brought Christ closer. For a minute his humanity stood in front of his divinity & I needed that. He said Fred if I can make it you can. From that point I felt the faith & courage to press on, went on to write the Spirit of David. And The project after that produced a song called “please don’t pass me by.” All BC he blessed me with an insight of his press.

Music has been my reality show. My songs came from real episodes in my life, like “running back to You”. What if I was to ashamed to share? The game is stepping up family from audio to film. The folks that’s already saved and got they stuff together have no real need of POLA. But these are the last days & GOD is going after some hard core lost souls. And He will use what ever method He chooses to get them.

Emily Ratajkowski: The Girl Who Stole Summer


Emily Ratajkowski raises a finger in the air and listens to a few distant thumps of bass from across a crowded restaurant. "Is that...?" she says. "Oh, it's not."

What it's not is "Blurred Lines," this summer's infectious sing-along and also the reason that 174 million sets of eyes have seen her bare-breasted, mouthing the word meow. Here, even though she's wearing actual articles of clothing on her body, you can almost hear the chorus in your head. And it's pretty easy to see why she was chosen for the dual role of "good girl" and "hottest bitch in this place." She's a sort of hybrid of the haute couture runway ideal and real-life feminine curves. Also: Her lips are ridiculous. You don't need us to tell you that.

"When I first saw the video, I was like, Oh, Jesus Christ, I'm so naked," she says. "Not just naked, but so revealed." She leans forward—she's the daughter of a professor, and she knows a teaching moment when she sees one: "It was my personality. There was no glamour involved. I was just silly and playful and kind of ridiculous—a big dork. And I only let my best friends see that. Or if I've had a couple of cocktails."

'Bee and Puppycat' Will Become A Series...If It Can Raise $600k



It seems that the two videos we got earlier this year of Bee and Puppycat—the charming and kind of eccentric cartoon by Natasha Allegri, character designer and storyboard artist for Adventure Time—aren't all of what we get to see of the show. Well, not if Frederator Studios can raise enough money on Kickstarter.

The idea behind the Kickstarter is to fund six episodes of Bee and Puppycat, all six minutes long, for $600,000. If they manage to raise more, they'll make more episodes—up to eleven. But if not, at minimum, there will be six television-quality episodes that are traditionally animated—as in, it's all done by hand.

They're turning to Kickstarter because it usually takes years to get funding in the traditional way, and Kickstarter means Allegri can maintain her vision on the show. That, and we all get the show quicker.

Bee and Puppycat follows the adventures of a a jobless twenty-something that comes across a cat-like thing that can somehow travel through space and time. You get lots of vibes from stuff like Utena, Sailor Moon/magical girls and more—it's pretty sweet, and ridiculous. That, and it features the sort of humor you might expect from Adventure Time, only more adorable.

I know animation can be stupidly expensive, but half a million for just over thirty minutes of programming seems steep.

Morrissey talks about his first serious relationship in new autobiography (re: sorta comes out?)

Morrissey describes moment 'the eternal "I" became "we"'
Singer did not enter first serious relationship until the 1990s, when he was in his mid-30s



Morrissey did not enter into a serious relationship until the 1990s, when he was in his mid-30s, he writes in Autobiography. When he met Jake Owen Walters, he writes, "for the first time in my life the eternal 'I' becomes 'we', as, finally, I can get on with someone".

Morrissey writes movingly about the two-year relationship. "Jake and I neither sought not needed company other than our own for the whirlwind stretch to come," he writes. "Indulgently Jake and I test how far each of us can go before 'being dwelt in' causes cries of intolerable struggle, but our closeness transcends such visitations."

Morrissey never specifies whether they were lovers, but talks of sharing hotel suites, of being photographed with his head "resting on Jake's exposed belly", and of Jake bringing him tea in the bath.

He also recounts an exchange at an airport. "'Well,' says the woman in the British Airways lounge, 'you're either very close brothers or lovers.' 'Can't brothers be lovers?' I imprudently reply – always ready with the pointlessly pert, whether sensible or not."

The ending of the relationship is described in a way that could hardly be more Morrissey – with a visit to his home by Alan Bennett, who observes the pair and says: "Now, now. What's going on? Something's happened, hasn't it? … You haven't spoken a word to each other since I arrived."

Although Autobiography never specifically addresses Morrissey's sexuality, he talks about his lack of interest in girls as a teenager. "Girls remained mysteriously attracted to me," he writes, "and I had no idea why, since although each fumbling foray hit the target, nothing electrifying took place, and I turned a thousand corners without caring … Far more exciting were the array of stylish racing bikes that my father would bring home."

Yeah, for most people this isn't particular surprising but there are many Morrissey stans that still believe Moz is 100% straight and that "the gays" have been merely projecting their desires on Morrissey. I remember seeing a few of them on ONTD even some years back, lol.

Damon Lindelof has left Twitter



Sigh: Looks like the idiots won.

One day after Damon Lindelof released a cryptic, purposefully unfinished tweet — “After much thought and deliberation, I’ve decided t” — it seems that the Lost creator has decided to bow out of Twitter entirely.

It’s possible that Lindelof is simply on sabbatical; before his account disappeared, Lindelof had changed his Twitter bio to read “On hiatus until the government shutdown ends.” Then again, given the amount of abuse heaped on the writer/producer via Twitter in the last few weeks — on the eve of Breaking Bad‘s finale, for instance, he was met with a barrage of messages from folks who are still angry about the way Lost ended — it’s also likely that this break could be a bit more permanent. There’s also this:




Lindelof’s reps haven’t yet responded to EW’s request for comment.

If the Star Trek Into Darkness writer really has been chased off the service for good, it’s a real shame; Lindelof’s Twitter account was consistently entertaining, whether he was crowing about Justin Bieber’s ridiculous hat or joyfully livetweeting Sharknado. Then again, you can hardly blame the guy for wanting to step away from an environment that’s often been toxic to him — as Seth Grahame-Smith told EW in a joint interview with Lindelof at Comic-Con 2012, “It’s amazing to wake up and read a tweet that says, ‘Please kill yourself.’” (The two were appearing together on a panel called “The Art of Being Despised.”

Oh, and in case you were wondering — Carlton Cuse is still around!
