Jessica Alba (left) and Liya Kebede (right)
Here's a chance to do some extra giving this Christmas (or whatever occasion you give presents for).
Tom's, the Los Angeles company known for donating a pair of shoes for each set it sells, [and also for selling comfortable, overpriced, androgynous shoes to hipsters & Portlanders] has a new do-gooder initiative: an e-commerce hub dedicated to socially conscious goods:

The marketplace, which launched Tuesday on Toms' website just in time for the holidays, features more than 200 products from 30 companies and charities.  Consumers can search the site by cause, region and brand, perusing descriptions and videos explaining each group’s mission.

There are some big names attached. Actress Jessica Alba’s eco-friendly business the Honest Company is featured, as is model Liya Kebede’s effort to help Ethiopian weavers via her organization Lemlem [warning: the Lemlem site auto-plays music].  Even Movember, the group behind mustache-growing men’s health efforts, is on the site selling clothing and accessories. Sitewide, products range from $5 to $500 - a few eclectic finds are pictured below the cut.

Lohan lie detector test DRAMA!!!!

Controversy was stirred when Lindsay Lohan‘s newly discovered half-sister, Ashley Horn, got $25,000 worth of plastic surgery done in an effort to look more like her famous sibling — or did she? In an exclusive clip obtained by, Horn appeared on The Trisha Goddard Show and took a polygraph test to “clear the air” about why she really had surgery, and gave a tearful apology to Lohan.

“Did you have that plastic surgery so you would look like Lindsay Lohan? You said no,” Goddard says in the clip.And it turns out, Horn was being truthful, according to the lie detector test.Horn, 18, claims her interview with In Touch magazine — in which there was a photo spread of her new look — was taken out of context and she never meant to bring Lohan’s name into it, even though she’s quoted as saying, “My goal was to look like Lindsay in her good days, when she was around 18, 19 years old.”She now regrets what she said and gave a tearful apology to Lohan.
“Whether she saw it or not, whether she sees this or not, I want to say that I am so sorry for letting the media use me to drag you into this,” Horn tells the camera as she holds back tears.“It was not my intention. I never thought that it was going to end up this way and I am so sorry.”To find out more about why Horn says she actually got the surgery — and whether or not she paid for it — tune in to The Trisha Show on Thursday, November 7.


The Only Way Is Essex's girls don onesies to support Children In Need

Reality television stars Jess, Sam and Billie show their support for the children's charity by posing in Pudsey Bear onesies


The Only Way Is Essex's Jess Wright, Sam Faiers and Billie Faiers have shown their support for this year's Children In Need appeal by wearing ASDA's Pudsey Bear onesies.

The reality television stars look rather cute in their new looks - with only a glimpse of fake tan to be seen...

It's good to see the cast gather support for the cause and we hope to see them flaunt their new outfits on the next episode of TOWIE.

It isn't the first time the Essex lot have done their bit to help those less fortunate.

In 2011, Mark Wright, Lauren Goodger, Joey Essex, Lucy Mecklenburgh, Lydia Bright, Chloe Sims and Lauren Pope lent their vocals to a charity cover of Wham's Last Christmas.

It might not have been top of our Christmas lists, but good on them for raising money for charities Crisis, Samaritans and Great Ormond Street Hospital.

On the last programme, Lucy, Jess Wright and Dan Osbourne stripped to their fancy smalls down the catwalk, to raise funds for Breast Cancer.

Sam Faiers was also auctioned as the main prize at Bobby's Catwalk for Breast Cancer - with Arg, Lewis and Charlie all bidding for a date with the beauty.

They were supported by co-stars Lauren Pope, Chloe Sims, Abi Clarke and Jasmin Walia, who were all seen clapping at the front.

You can help raise money for Children in Need by picking up official ASDA BBC Children in Need themed merchandise in ASDA and George stores. Or you can visit or to view and purchase the whole range.

‘Blue,’ Through Lesbian Eyes

Of the many things to note about the seven-minute lesbian sex scene in “Blue Is the Warmest Color,” a French drama about a teenage girl who becomes passionately involved with a slightly older woman, is how very long it seems to go on.

While there is little radical about lesbian sexuality on-screen these days (“The Killing of Sister George” led the way in 1968, and by 2010 “The Kids Are All Right” featured a lesbian couple who liked gay male pornography), the sex scene in “Blue” is certainly among the most graphic and physically intense.

It is brightly lit, so we see every crash of flesh against flesh, every pinch and grip. The younger Adele (played by Adèle Exarchopoulos) and Emma (Léa Seydoux) slap each other’s breasts, pull each other’s hair, scissor bodies, mount and dismount.

CNN wondered if it might be the “sexiest film ever.” lol cnn would The IFC Center in Greenwich Village, which is showing the film, has been criticized by a parents group for allowing teenagers into the NC-17 film. (The Flicks art house cinema in Boise, Idaho, has declined to show the film.)

But not everyone, it seems, has been turned on by the movie, including the very people the film aims to depict: lesbians.

Selena Gomez for Flaunt Magazine December 2013 (Photo shoot and Article)

SELENA GOMEZ’S PARENTS NAMED HER AFTER A POP STAR. Her mom Mandy was only 16 years old and surely had Selena Quintanilla-Pérez ringing like a miracle from every tape deck in her possession in Grand Prairie, Texas. The Tejano star was 21 at the time, the height of her power, and would be shot dead not three years later at a Days Inn in Corpus Christi, crawling for the lobby at midnight, while six hours away, Selena Gomez was toddling through dreamland. Eighteen years, six months, and seven days later, she’s 21 herself, finishing up a rehearsal for her world tour in a cropped black top and capri sweats and fronting eight dancers at Millennium Dance Complex in the valley, each smiling in a way that is both comforting and inviting, as if welcoming the viewer to partake in a fully stocked buffet line of human joy.

Of all the gifts given during her very own quinceañera episode on Disney’s Wizards of Waverly Place, one is not, sadly, a medal displaying her patron, the individual destined to guide you through life, the one you pray to when you’re not praying to God. What’s more, your patron can define your life; it would say a lot if Selena Gomez was linked to, say, Saint Genesius,
a comedian working in Rome around the third century AD, who was tortured and beheaded when the emperor found he was earnestly receiving the sacrament during a satirical play.

“Text me!” Selena Gomez calls back to her dancers as they leave the rehearsal space.

Jennifer Lawrence Reveals One Very Un-Ladylike Reason She Likes 'Catching Fire'

She won an Oscar last year, and her name is often mentioned in the same breath as living legends like Meryl Streep and Cate Blanchett, but the thing Jennifer Lawrence enjoyed the most about her most recent film role happened off-camera (we hope): peeing in the ocean.

At least that's what she said during a "Hunger Games: Catching Fire" live panel at Facebook's headquarters Wednesday night (November 6), where she answered fan questions alongside castmates Josh Hutcherson (Peeta) and Liam Hemsworth (Gale), as well as director Francis Lawrence. Hutcherson, answering a question about the body-hugging wetsuits the characters wear for much of the movie in the tropical Quarter Quell arena, said they "weren't so bad" before being interrupted by notorious loose cannon Lawrence.

"They even worked when we got into the water!" she exclaimed.

A confused Hutcherson tried to clarify: "In what way? That we could pee through them? That's the good part?"

As it turns out, yes, that was the good part, according to Lawrence.

"That was the most fun part of 'Catching Fire'," she said. "[Josh and I] could run into the ocean and pee together."

TMZ didn't break "One Less Lonely Prostitute '13" so they're disclaiming it.

The woman who videotaped a sleeping Justin Bieber in a video that exploded on YouTube is NOT a prostitute ... members of Bieber's camp who were with Justin in Brazil tell TMZ.

Ever since the video surfaced, showing an unidentified woman blowing a kiss to a passed out Bieber ... rumors began to swirl that she was a local Brazilian whore who Justin paid for.

Here's what we're told -- Justin had rented a home outside of Rio to stay at during his concert in Brazil. After his show, JB threw an after-party and invited roughly 50 people. At some point during the shindig, Justin fell asleep on a couch and one of the partygoers shot footage of the singer sleeping.

Bieber is telling friends ... he is completely creeped out by the video and is disappointed that he now has to defend himself against false hooker claims.

Bottom line -- sorry whores, it just ain't true.

Adam Lambert talks Glee, Queen, & Avicii w/Ryan Seacrest

Adam Lambert stopped by On Air with Ryan Seacrest to talk about his guest appearance on tonight’s Glee and getting to work with legends like Queen and Avicii.

The American Idol alum explains that this wasn’t the first time he attempted to be on the hit Fox show. In fact, he auditioned for the show back in 2009, but was turned down!

“[I'm] not bitter at all. I think things worked out great, [but] the guy told me I was too old and truth is, I probably just sucked. I don’t think I was good enough,” he jokes.

And now that he’s made his way onto the show, he couldn’t be more excited about his debut episode, titled “A Katy or A Gaga.”

It’s such a good episode,” Adam says. “I’ve had such a good time with everybody. The cast, they’re a big family and they’re super tight-knit and have a bunch of inside jokes, but they welcomed me with open arms.”

William Orbit Produced Only One Song Off “Britney Jean” + More Album News

(New Britney Jean promo photo)

William Orbit produced “Alien” off “Britney Jean,” his only song on the album, and says he couldn’t have made the song so good without being a big fan of hers.
“I’ve done one song for the new album, called ‘Alien’, which is really good,” Orbit tells NME. “I’ll be in Vegas, seeing the show. I’ve become a huge fan of hers, actually. I always liked her, but when I started to dig into her repertoire – and there’s masses of it – I became a superfan, really. You’ll find me in the audience singing along.”

Just one song though?

Britney said in an interview in London of working with Orbit:

“This guy named William Orbit – he’s from London (he’s spectacular). I did this song with him called “Aliens,” which is really cool. It’s really great.”

Naughty Boy Producer Not On Britney Jean Album
Naughty Boy won’t be featured on “Britney Jean” because of… logistics?
In a Q & A with readers on Reddit, he answered if he’d appear on the writing credits:

“No. We will not. I was working on something with William Orbit for it, but I had my own stuff coming out at the same time and I didn’t have my work visa sorted at the time and it didn’t work out as planned, but I’m sure it will happen someday.”

Weird, because a few weeks ago, singer Emeli Sande said she and Naughty Boy already made the track and sent it off to Team Spears.

Doctor Who Round Up: Joanna Page's Frozen 10 Kisses and Moffat's Making You Work for Your Clips


Actress Joanna Page has revealed how dramatic new Doctor Who kissing scenes were far from romantic and left her feeling blue. Gavin & Stacey star Joanna, 35, plays Queen Elizabeth in the 50th anniversary Doctor Who film later this month and stars alongside David Tennant who returns to play the Time Lord with current star Matt Smith.

Joanna said: “Filming the romantic scenes were quite difficult because my first day was on top of a mountain in Neath. It was absolutely freezing, it was blowing a gale and David, the Tenth Doctor and I, are having a picnic. So I’m lying across him and he probably couldn’t breathe, because I’ve just got this massive costume on, and he’s feeding me grapes as I’m just desperately shivering.

Ahead of its broadcast on 23 November, Doctor Who writer Steven Moffat and the cast have revealed tantalising new details about 50th anniversary special, The Day of the Doctor. Steven Moffat, the show’s lead writer and executive producer, said that the experience of writing the anniversary special was “exciting and terrifying – everything that showbiz should be.”

Moffat’s previous comments that the episode “will change the narrative in a big way” encouraged speculation that writers have found a solution to the fact that the Doctor can only regenerate twelve times. He has now further added to this by saying, “This should be the next step on the journey, guaranteeing the 100th anniversary”.

Lee Pace Interview with French magazine Popcorn

Is it easy to play Orlando Bloom’s father?
I loved playing Thranduil, Legolas’ father. As you can imagine, these two have a complicated relationship. It is not too easy to describe it, because we’ve just finished shooting and it’s probably still too fresh in my head. What is certain is that they have a completely opposite view of the world. And I think that this film makes us understand why Legolas left his clan and joined brotherhood of Lord of the Rings.

The Miami Dolphins Continues to be a Hot Mess

Other NFL Players Cite Lack of Leaders in Miami

Eleven seasons into his football career, Washington Redskins linebacker Nick Barnett figures he has a pretty good sense of the sort of teasing and hazing and horsing around that happens in the typical NFL locker room, especially when it comes to rookies.

They're stuck with $5,000 dinner tabs. They're told to tote the helmets or pads of older players. They're held down and given unwanted haircuts or get their eyebrows shaved.

What he's never heard of, Barnett said Tuesday, is the kind of accusations of out-and-out bullying and harassment at the heart of why second-year offensive tackle Jonathan Martin suddenly left the Miami Dolphins a week ago because of emotional distress, and why his linemate, Richie Incognito, was suspended indefinitely by the team.

"You have different people, different personalities, different cultures in here, and it's not going to be the same as in an accountant's office or Wall Street. Same as our armed forces," Barnett said, standing at his locker after Washington's practice. "But every social setting has its standards, and when (you) cross those standards ... especially with a guy who is 6-something-foot tall, 300 pounds ... not coming to practice because he feels bullied or whatever the case is, now we have an issue."

While some players said they figure the NFL to make clear certain kinds of locker-room behavior won't be tolerated, Commissioner Roger Goodell has so far been silent on the matter; a spokesman said the league is "currently engaged in a thorough review of the situation." The players' union issued a statement Tuesday saying it expects the NFL and teams to "create a safe and professional workplace for all players."

Swedish Cinemas To Rate Films with the Bechdel Test

You expect movie ratings to tell you whether a film contains nudity, sex, profanity or violence. Now cinemas in Sweden are introducing a new rating to highlight gender bias, or rather the absence of it...

To get an A rating, a movie must pass the so-called Bechdel test, which means it must have at least two named female characters who talk to each other about something other than a man.

"The entire Lord of the Rings trilogy, all Star Wars movies, The Social Network, Pulp Fiction and all but one of the Harry Potter movies fail this test," said Ellen Tejle, the director of Bio Rio, an art-house cinema in Stockholm's trendy Södermalm district.

Bio Rio is one of four Swedish cinemas that launched the new rating last month to draw attention to how few movies pass the Bechdel test. Most filmgoers have reacted positively to the initiative. "For some people it has been an eye-opener," said Tejle.

Beliefs about women's roles in society are influenced by the fact that movie watchers rarely see "a female superhero or a female professor or person who makes it through exciting challenges and masters them", Tejle said, noting that the rating doesn't say anything about the quality of the film. "The goal is to see more female stories and perspectives on cinema screens," he added.
The state-funded Swedish Film Institute supports the initiative, which is starting to catch on. Scandinavian cable TV channel Viasat Film says it will start using the ratings in its film reviews and has scheduled an A-rated "Super Sunday" on 17 November, when it will show only films that pass the test, such as The Hunger Games, The Iron Lady and Savages.

Robyn Fenty continues to make HistoRIH!!!

Perhaps lost in yesterday's bevy of chart feats by Eminem, who this week becomes the first lead artist to land four concurrent top 20 hits on the Billboard Hot 100 since the Beatles in 1964, is that Rihanna tallies her 25th top 10, matching the sum totaled by Elvis Presley.

Thus, "The Monster" is proving aptly titled, as its debut at No. 3 has surfaced narratives between Eminem and the Beatles and Rihanna and the King of Rock and Roll.

Upon the collaboration's bow, here's an updated look at the acts with the most Hot 100 top 10s:

38 -- Madonna
34 -- the Beatles
28 -- Michael Jackson
28 -- Stevie Wonder
27 -- Mariah Carey
27 -- Janet Jackson
27 -- Elton John
25 -- Elvis Presley
25 -- Rihanna
23 -- Whitney Houston
23 -- the Rolling Stones

B O W. Basically she's the second artist to achieve that many top 10's in the shortest amount of time behind the Beatles and surpassed Madonna's record for shortest amount of time for a female by 4 months. She is now the 4th woman with the most top 10's. She's only 3 away from surpassing Mariah and Janet to become the 2nd.

Elizabeth Vargas enters rehab

NEW YORK (AP) -- Veteran ABC News reporter and "20/20" anchor Elizabeth Vargas is in treatment for alcohol dependency, the network said Wednesday.

Vargas, who is 51 and married to singer-songwriter Marc Cohn, last appeared on ABC in October. The network confirmed a New York Daily News story that said she has been in a treatment facility for a few weeks and has a few weeks more to complete the program.

"Like so many people, I am dealing with addiction," Vargas said. "I realized I was becoming increasingly dependent on alcohol."

She said she was grateful to her family, friends and employers for support. She and Cohn have two children.

"Like so many others, I will deal with this challenge a day at a time," she said. "If coming forward today gives one other person the courage to seek help, I'm grateful."

Vargas has worked in network news since 1993, first with NBC and then ABC. Besides her newsmagazine work, she was named co-anchor of "World News Tonight" with Bob Woodruff following the death of Peter Jennings, but that pairing was cut short when Woodruff was seriously injured in an explosion while reporting in Iraq.

ABC said it was proud of Vargas' effort to get help and is pulling for her recovery.

"Elizabeth is a member of our family and we will support her in every way we can," said ABC News spokesman Jeffrey Schneider.


ABC is part of The Walt Disney Co.


Glad she's getting the help she needs and it was very brave of her to come forward and talk about her addiction.

The 10 Greatest Tweets of All Time (according to Yahoo!)

Twitter (TWTR), which is set to start trading on the NYSE Thursday in the largest tech IPO since Facebook's (FB) disastrous debut, has transformed the way we consume information and communicate across every category of human interest. This includes everything from breaking news, politics and religion to entertainment, advertising and mass-protest organizing.

Here are some of the greatest tweets of all time, showcasing such breadth and infused with wit, irony, surprise and serendipity.

Entertainment: Oprah Winfrey’s first tweet in 2009, and the speed with which she gained over a million followers, served as a tipping point for celebrities and foreshadowed the ability they now possess to reach millions of fans directly in 140 character bursts.

Maybe the best thing about Oprah’s tweet, though, was Shaq’s response — a friendly troll, if you will, and funny.

Rachel McAdams and Bradley Cooper give fans a first glimpse as they film new movie in Hawaii

They're two of the biggest names in the rom-com genre, so it was about time Bradley Cooper and Rachel McAdams starred in one together.

The pair are currently shooting scenes for the as-yet untitled Cameron Crowe project in Oahu, Hawaii and gave fans a first glimpse of their obvious chemistry as they strolled hand-in-hand along the beach on Wednesday.

The movie sees Bradley star as celebrated military contractor Brian Gilcrest, who reconnects with lost love Tracy, played by McAdams, after returning to the site of his 'greatest career triumphs'. But as with any Hollywood love story, there's another person in the mix - a hard-charging Air Force watchdog assigned to Gilcrest, whom he unexpectedly falls for.

The 38-year-old hunk certainly looked the part in his camouflage fatigues and black combat boots, with his hair trimmed into a neat short back and sides military 'do. His leading lady embraced the Hawaiian culture in a soft pink dress with white hibiscus design that fell to just below the knee.

The campaign is titled 'L'Invitation au Voyage' and was filmed in Venice this summer.

Country stars poke fun at Obamacare at CMAs...

Brad Paisley and Carrie Underwood had some fun at the Country Music Awards on Wednesday night at the expense of President Obama.

One of their skits included a little diddy on the president's troubled online health care exchange.

The country stars led into the bit with Paisley telling Underwood he needs to see a doctor.

"Hey do you have that Obamacare?" Underwood asks Paisley. "It's great. I started signing up last Thursday, and I'm almost done."

The two then attempt to sign up, which launches them into this song set to the tune of George Strait's Amarillo by Morning:

"Obamacare by morning.

Why is this taking so long?

I am going to wind up with hemorrhoids if I sit here till dawn

We'll have cataracts and dementia. Oh this is getting on my last nerves

Obamacare by morning, over six people served."

It's one thing to make a joke about the health care rollout(it has been ridiculous), it's another to make the joke in front of a crowd full of conservatives. Added fuel to the fire.

We learned that Lady Gaga had secured herself a 2015 Virgin Galactic ticket and consequently, a chapter in Curiosity Rover’s Burn Book—with plans to become “the first artist to sing in outer space.” Us Weekly reports that the performance will last for one track, and the flight will take place during “the Zero G Colony high-tech musical festival in New Mexico.”

Left with myriad intergalactic-Gaga questions—Are meat costumes kosher in space? What is the best way to affix lobster-head prosthetics in zero gravity? Will Virgin let her customize her space suit into some kind of Muppet-fabulous couture?—we reached out to space expert and managing editor Tariq Malik. His educated answers to all of our Gaga-goes-to-space questions are below.

Rick Grims Is Officially The Worst Leader Ever

Rick Grimes is the very worst.

If we’ve had anything to be happy about this season on The Walking Dead, anything at all, it’s the fact that Rick has spent most of his time hoeing crops down at the prison farm in his invisible overalls, a place where at least his terrible decisions can only hurt potatoes instead of people. Unfortunately, since Rick remains the main character of the show, this blessed respite cannot last forever; no matter how much he – and we – would prefer it, we cannot abandon him to the cabbages that he surely loves like children and spend that time with far more interesting characters like Carl, Daryl, Michonne, Carol, Maggie and Glenn. Instead we must refocus, yet again, on Rick, a character so boring that it is increasingly difficult to work up the energy necessary to roll my eyes at him.

James Arthur Attacks One Direction's Louis Tomlinson On Twitter As He Starts New 'X Factor' Feud

Just when you think James Arthur has finally wound his neck in and stopped trying to pick boring fights, he's gone and launched an attack at the biggest boyband in the world, One Direction.

Brave (or stupid?) man.

The reigning 'X Factor' champion - who had a famous war of words with previous winner Matt Cardle - has labeled 1D singer Louis Tomlinson a 'little bitch'.

M.I.A. Talks Matangi, Spirituality, Technology, and Why She Was Called "The Female Kanye"

Also talks about Superbowl, Madonna, and her documentary

Reminds me of that Lauryn Hill lyric, "It takes one drop of purity to clean a cesspool.
It’s the same way as, like, today I can go to like a slum in Bombay or a slum in Jamaica or Brazil, and I will hear the same insane song. Like, a really shit song that we don’t know how it became No. 1. We don’t know why they say the things they’re saying. Nobody in the hood relates to it, this display of crap, but that is the song that gets played. When you go to the poorest places in the world, you hear the worst songs. And then you go, "Wow these people naturally make amazing songs. Their shit is not on the radio. What they have in the radio is like not even the best that America can offer or the best that fuckin’ Russia can offer or wherever. It’s like the lowest common denominator song." You know what I mean? It’s not even the good stuff.

The Independent: It's hard not to feel underwhelmed by ARTPOP

No heart behind the art of Gaga's surface spectacle

It's hard not to feel underwhelmed by ARTPOP – but then, that's the danger of hype, especially hype allied to an artefact that's only partially about music. No other pop star has so completely understood and applied the post-modern theory of The Spectacle as La Gaga, but at the heart of her spectacle, the music comes a poor relation to considerations of design, and the manufacturing of ersatz outrage.

So it is that the most interesting aspects of ARTPOP are the extra-musical ones: the way that "Swine" roots between desire and disgust; the teasing reference to "behind the burka" added to the query, "Do you want to see me naked, lover? Do you want to see the girl who lives behind the aura?"; even, lord help us, the kitsch Jeff Koons sleeve design. Musically, it's pretty much the standard modern electro fare familiar from dozens of contemporaries, from Kylie to Britney. The dubstep riffs are more tortured in places, but when David Guetta and are involved in a track's production – as with the bullishly shallow "Fashion!" – you're not straying from the mainstream.

The formula works best on "Swine", where the brutal utility of the twitching buzzsaw synth riff matches the visceral revulsion of the lyric: "I know you want me/ I'm just a pig inside a human body/ Squealer, squealer, you're so disgusting." It's the most interesting slant on the masturbatory eroticism trotted out in "Aura", "Sexxx Dreams" and "G.U.Y.", Gaga's robotic spoken section in the latter making sexual attraction seem grimly denatured. It's left to R Kelly, guesting on "Do What U Want", to supply a modicum of authentic romance.

One suspects it's the final two tracks, "Gypsy" and "Applause", that Gaga believes best represent her attitude – driven to wander, and slave to acclaim – but the title-track contains the real message of ARTPOP. "My art pop could mean anything," she sings – the corollary being that it could also mean nothing at all.

Angela Bassett and Kathy Bates approached to return for season four of American Horror Story

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

This season of American Horror Story has seen the delicious additions of Kathy Bates and Angela Bassett to the cast, playing immortal archenemies Madame LaLaurie and Marie Laveaux, respectively. Now it looks like Coven might not be the last time we see the pair on the FX franchise: Series co-creator Ryan Murphy tells EW exclusively that he wants both stars to return for season 4, which was just announced.

“I have approached them and they wanna do it,” says Murphy. He adds, “That’s very exciting when you can work with A.) actresses you’ve always idolized and B.) those two are loving this season. They love what they get to do. Kathy Bates sent the writers a basket of plush toys all in the shapes of disemboweled organs. It doesn’t get better than when an Oscar winner sends you a grab bag of stuffed pancreas to say ‘Thank you and job well done.’”

Miley Cyrus — Why She Loves Working With Kanye West

It’s easy for Miley to forget the haters cause somebody loves her — Kanye! In a new interview, Miley reveals that she enjoys working with the controversial rapper because he ‘believes’ in her.

Miley Cyrus chatted with Ryan Seacrest on Nov. 6, dishing about how she and Kanye West bonded at the 2013 VMAs on Aug. 25. Even though Miley has received a lot of criticism for her new image, Kanye has offered her nothing but support and encouragement! Read on for all the details on Miley’s special relationship with Kanye.

Kanye totally predicted that Miley would wow everyone with her wild VMA performance! Miley, 20, told Ryan that Kanye, 36, watched the rehearsal of her performance on the night of the show and said to her:

“You’re going to do something kind of insane tonight. It’s going to be memorable and awesome.”

Kanye had an eye for Miley’s talent right away, and it sounds like the two artists instantly clicked.

“I had wanted to go out after, but we had decided to go into the studio and we started working and my whole thing is no matter what I do, I just want to be around people that really believe in me,” Miley says. “And that’s why him and I started working together.”

In the interview, she discusses Matangi, which marks her first official Interscope release. “This record also gives me a way to say something about all the shit that has happened to me over the past ten years, which has all been out in the open and everyone has seen,” said M.I.A. “You can go through all this stuff and still be alright.”

But despite her popularity, she doesn’t consider herself a pop star. “I’m not really a pop star. I don’t think I’m popular enough to be a proper pop star. I prefer being called a rapper,” she said.

One of the most entertaining and frustrating things about being a fan of M.I.A has been watching white critics struggle to articulate her style while challenging her right to the aesthetic she cultivates. Artists of color aren’t often recognized for their sophistication or intent. Rather, they’re ascribed a “primitive rawness.”

Superman vs Batman's Search For Wonder Woman May Have Already Started

Like any good rumor, the one related to a Wonder Woman appearance in Batman vs Superman has slowly generated more and more momentum. The whispers began back in October when the studio admitted it had plans for the crime fighter. They got a little louder thanks to some comments from a Warner Bros executive, and they really took off earlier this week when Thor actress Jaime Alexander kinda sorta implied she may have read the script. Well, the fine folks over at Warner Bros are still sticking by the long-winded no comments they’ve been uttering all along, but sources close to the production are singing a different tune.

According to Variety, three actress either have or will soon audition for a mysterious part in the upcoming Superman vs Batman film that sounds quite a bit like Diana Prince. Let me hit you with the casting description: "tall, brunette, athletic and exotic." That could easily be Wonder Woman, or less excitingly, it could be some new woman Ben Affleck’s Bruce Wayne will try to take back to his bat bedroom.

As for the specific actresses in play, the outlet claims the women are Olga Kurylenko of Magic City fame, G.I. Joe: Retaliation’s Elodie Yung and Gal Gadot from Fast And Furious. As per usual, however, if director Zack Snyder and the various other decision makers on the property aren’t seeing what they’re looking for, they will call in more hot foreign or foreign-ish dark haired women to fill what may well be one of the most sought-after female parts in the history of Hollywood.

JT kicks of the 20/20 experience world tour in brooklyn

Justin Timberlake and Jay Z made history with their “Legends of the Summer” stadium tour. But on Wednesday, Timberlake reemerged solo to kick off his “20/20 Experience World Tour” at Brooklyn’s Barclays Center.

Following opening act The Weeknd (who will join him on five more dates), the pop superstar took the stage. Clad in a black-and-white tuxedo by Tom Ford, he opened with “Pusher Love Girl.”

“Brooklyn, are you ready?” asked JT.

With some help from his band, JT & the Tennessee Kids, he performed material off Parts 1 and 2 of The 20/20 Experience, the latter of which was recently certified platinum. He also dug into his catalog with hits like “Like I Love You” and “Señorita,” plus a cover of Bell Biv DeVoe’s “Poison,” complete with choreography.

At one point, he spotted his friend Jimmy Fallon in the audience. “Hey Jimmy, #Wasted#DoYouTapeTomorrow, #IHopeNot,” he joked in reference to their “Late Night” skit.

The global tour travels across the U.S. and Canada through March before heading to Europe in the spring.

Watch JT bring his “20/20 Experience” to Brooklyn on opening night.

Natalie Portman: Tom Hiddleston is Just Phenomenal


Natalie Portman is pure class while arriving for an appearance on The Late Show with David Letterman on Wednesday (November 6) in New York City.

The 32-year-old actress was seen waving to fans, who had waited outside the studio.

A few weeks ago, Natalie was stunning in white while attending the premiere for her upcoming flick Thor: The Dark World in Germany.

“Tom is just so, so awesome. He’s one of the great people to work with. He’s so fun and funny and smart and talented and he’s just phenomenal. And it was so great to slap him because he really let me go for it and always had a cheeky response and punctuated it well,” Natalie recently shared to Moviefone about her Thor: The Dark World co-star Tom Hiddleston.

Q-Tip slams Confederate flag in contrast to Kanye

Q-Tip, the legendary member of A Tribe Called Quest, has weighed in on the controversy swirling around Kanye West’s decision to feature the Confederate flag on merchandise being sold on his Yeezus tour.

The “News Slaves” rapper has pushed back against his critics, claiming “it’s my flag” and arguing that his use of the imagery, which is normally associated with bigotry and pro-slavery views, is an attempt to subvert its meaning.

“I just think people look cool in it. They look nice. And it’s colorless also,” West said in an interview at Los Angeles’ 97.1 AMP radio station. “It’s super hood and super white boy approved at the same time. That’s really what my style has always been.”

Q-Tip got a heated conversation started on the issue with a simple, albeit profane, tweet which read: “F**k the confederate flag.”

The “Bonita Applebum” lyricist then got into a debate with tweeters, some of whom defended Kanye. Tip clarified that his remarks were in no way a diss of Kanye:

Kate Middleton displays her greys


The Duchess of Cambridge was as elegant as ever today in a claret LK Bennett coat while meeting military supporters, servicemen and women, as part of London Poppy Day.

However, the glossy mane that inspired a million Chelsea blow-dries looked rather different: silver roots were clearly visible along the parting of her normally chestnut hair. She's also gone for a less bouncy 'do than usual, parted in the middle, rather than at the side.

In fact, the flat, middle-parted style she's chosen highlights the silvery strands coming through at her hairline. Hairdresser Daniel Galvin Jr comments: 'If you are going grey, it is important to part your hair where the grey does not show.'

However, it appears Kate doesn't care who spots the silvers. And why should she? She's probably got more important things on her mind.
