Geri Halliwell personally thanks all 393 fans who bought her new single and made her debut at #94



(Forgive spelling & grammar)
Hi, Hello…
I won! I won! I won!!! Tuesday, I was at the Melbourne Cup - I backed a horse called ‘Fiorente’ to come first – It did! – I was elated! That evening feeling pretty pleased with myself, I saw online around 11pm that my new single (just released in Australia) had come in at number #94… I laughed nervously, god that’s really bad! (Deep down I was gutted).

So for the final show of Australia’s Got Talent – I asked myself what are my options?  (They were expecting me to perform the new single) Could I still perform the song at #94? I could pretend it hasn’t happened? Denial? Hide my disappointment? Unleash the fighter... Sing the song with ‘magnificent’ gusto doing my best to promote it up the charts… Maybe I could get it to a respectful number ‘30’? Or even ‘60’?

‘City on Fire,’ a Debut Novel, Fetches Nearly $2 Million

Donna Tartt’s novel “The Goldfinch” has 771 pages. “The Luminaries” by Eleanor Catton, winner of the 2013 Man Booker Prize, is 834 pages long. And then there is “City on Fire,” the 900-page debut novel that took the publishing industry by storm last week.

It was even more evidence that the long novel is experiencing a resurgence, as a dozen publishers competed for the rights to release the book, set in New York City in the 1970s. “City on Fire” was written by Garth Risk Hallberg, a 34-year-old who has contributed to The New York Times Book Review and The Millions. Publishers who had a copy of the manuscript — and said they could concentrate on little else until they had finished reading it — rapturously compared it to work by Michael Chabon and Thomas Pynchon.

McBusted UK Tour 2014 IS HAPPENING AND THIS IS ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT IT


For a long time, the idea of a McBusted supergroup has been something of a fantasy for fans across the country.

But it's really happening (without Charlie Simpson) and we can't wait!

Yes, it's true - after Busted made a cameo appearance at McFly's 10th anniversary shows at the Royal Albert Hall, the two boybands have announced plans to join forces.

In a press conference today (11th November) hosted by Emma Willis (wife of Busted-star Matt Willis), the two groups announced a ‘McBusted’ tour starting from next April, along with their first live performance at this coming weekend’s Children In Need on BBC.

A new website McBusted.com has also been launched, along with a @McBusted Twitter account. However the new supergroup have confirmed that they will NOT be recording a new album together to compliment the tour. (yeah right we'll see about that)

Julia Roberts covers Marie Claire

She is one of Hollywood's most A-list beauties. But off screen Julia Roberts is as down-to-earth and family-oriented as they come, as she reveals in the December issue of Marie Claire.

The 48-year-old actress - who is playing Meryl Streep's daughter in the upcoming film August: Osage County - gave real insight into her genuinely authentic lifestyle, admitting she cooks three meals a day, sews for her three children, and steers clear of the internet.

Julia - who won an Academy Award for her portrayal of Erin Brockovich - explains why she avoids social media. 'It's kind of like cotton candy,'she said, referring to the wonderfully bottomless pit that is the internet. 'It looks so appealing and you just can't resist getting in there, and then you just end up with sticky fingers and it lasted an instant.'

Matt Smith Learns Well From Moffat, Says Some Stupid Shit About the Female Stars of Doctor Who

matt

Doctor Who star Matt Smith has insisted the show is not sex-obsessed – but admitted it keeps hiring “hot” female actresses.

The 31-year-old will be starring alongside Jenna Coleman and Billie Piper in the film The Day of The Doctor to mark the show’s 50th anniversary. Waris Hussein, who directed the first ever Dr Who episode, has recently said the show has become too sexualised.

But Matt hit back, telling the Mirror: “I strongly disagree. Dr Who is just rollocking good fun with the odd snog here and there. For sure, Karen (Gillan) is hot, so too Billie and Jenna but is that a bad thing? I don’t think so. What’s he want us to do, put everyone in straitjackets?

William Orbit: How Madonna Happened to me…


London Electronic Arts Festival (LEAF) is a major new city-wide event for London, showcasing its innovative heritage in electronic music.

William Orbit performed a prototype concert in Shoreditch on November 9th 2013 as part of LEAF where he talked about his career, answered questions and also played some music.

One of the questions from the audience was of course about Madonna.

Tell me a little bit more about how Madonna happened. How you sort of walked into that?

William Orbit: I’ve done a couple of remixes. It was “Justify my Love”.
I might play it later because I’ve done a remix version of it.
I sent them off on cassette and I’ve written my phone number on it and I got a call… from her.

What happened? I had an album, but nobody liked it. Warner said “it’s not working for us, it’s just not happening, sorry.”

Then I was getting called by Guy Oseary, who is her manager, saying “got anything for Madonna?” In fact, we were driving around LA, working with Laurie and she said “send it.” I didn’t want to, but she said “send it, you got nothing to lose.” I sent the whole album and [Madonna] called me five days later, when I was back in England, out of the blue, in the kitchen.
I said “How did you get my number?”
She said “Oh, it was on a cassette. We dug it out of a pile of cassettes, your number. By the way, I’ve written loads of stuffs on these songs I really like. Would you like to come to New York and carry on?”

Member of Brooklyn Band Yellow Dogs Kills Bandmates in Murder-Suicide



A member of the Brooklyn indie band the Yellow Dogs shot and killed three people last night, wounded another, and then turned the gun on himself, The New York Times reports. According to the Times, at least some of the victims were the shooter's bandmates. The shootings took place in an East Williamsburg building that the band identified as their headquarters on their Facebook page.

The band, at least three of which from Iran, have spoken openly about their experiences emigrating from Tehran, where they organized concerts in secret. "We can't go back to Iran," the band's singer, Obash, explained in an interview with eMusic. "Our parents, they have never seen us play." According to the Times, members of the band were granted asylum last year. Their last release, the Upper Class Complexity EP, came out last spring.

Update: The Wall Street Journal reports that the shooter was Raefe Ahkhbar. His victims were guitarist Soroush Farazmand, singer Ali Eskandarian, and drummer Arash Farazmand. Ahkbar had recently been kicked out of the band, according to The Wall Street Journal.

Clooney's Esquire interview - On DiCaprio, Crowe, ER, and rubbing himself with turkey bacon...


You must love him.

For one thing, he’s lovable, professionally so. For another, he leaves nothing to chance. If he can’t win you over with his fame, his charm, and his good looks, he will win you over with preparation. It’s not that he’s needy, like an actor; it’s that he’s competitive, like an athlete. He’s always been good at making people love him; he’s not about to give up his edge now.

Of course, he is not often challenged, and risks the fate of a fighter whose dominance is tainted by a lack of worthy opponents. A few years ago, however, he lost one of his dogs to a rattlesnake. He is a dog guy—a little sign about men and dogs adorns a living-room wall otherwise dominated by signed photographs of dignitaries—and he set about to get another, preferably hypoallergenic. He saw a black cocker-spaniel mix on the Web site of a rescue organization and called the number. The woman who answered said she’d be happy to bring the dog to his house, but then she explained that the dog had been abandoned and picked up malnourished off the street. “He has to love you,” she told George Clooney, “or else I have to take him back.”

At first, he found himself getting nervous—“freaking out.” What if the dog didn’t love him? Then he responded. “I had some turkey bacon in the refrigerator,” he says. “I rubbed it on me. I’m not kidding. When she came over, the dog went crazy. He was all over me. The woman said, ‘Oh, my God, he’s never like this. He loves you.’ ”

He has told this story before. He has even told it to Esquire before. That he tells it again—that it’s the first story he tells—serves to announce what is essential about himself: that he’s a man who will do what it takes to win you over, even applying bacon as an unguent.

I have done a few of these things—celebrity profiles—before. I have interviewed famous people in hotel rooms and offices, in bars and in restaurants, even, once, on top of a bridge in Sydney, Australia. Where I have not often interviewed them is at their homes. The home is the turkey bacon of the celebrity profile. It generates, if not love, then at least a sense of gratitude akin to what a dog must feel when allowed on the couch. Leonardo DiCaprio met me in a vast hotel conference room, empty but for an end table and two chairs.

George Clooney invited me to his house.

A Completely Arbitrary Ranking Of The 8 Movies In The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Or 5 out of 8 movies whatever
the_avengers_eating_shawarma__gif__by_marianagmt-d59ygxp
Marvel’s latest offering within its Cinematic Universe is Thor: The Dark World, marking the eighth entry into this rather ambitious attempt to apply rules normally reserved for comic books to movies. Film franchises have become commonplace by now, to the point where they’re frequently lambasted as the downfall of our cinema, innovation, civilization, etc. What Marvel is doing, though, is taking this wretched system of cynical sequels and tired remakes and doing something that, as far as I can tell, is completely new: establishing a multi-film-spanning universe with individual stories that intersect and influence each other over an indefinite period of time.
They’ve further extended this cinematic universe into television and shorts, most notably the ABC series Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D, which I have yet to get into (I’m hesitant due to the mixed reviews). There may be a learning curve for these ventures as there was for the movies initially, and a new partnership with Netflix certainly sounds promising. Their universe continues to expand, and if the quality can keep up pace with the quantity of output that Marvel is promising, it will be a fascinating and exciting era for innovative storytelling.
I’m not a comic book guy, but for as long as I’ve been aware of some of the conventional practices (so since like, a year ago), I’ve been deeply intrigued by the way storylines unfold across different series, and that projects as massive as big-budget movies are beginning to execute this with increasing agility is a tremendous development. I have little emotional attachment to Marvel as a brand, but what they’re doing is becoming pretty remarkable.
With that, here is a ranking of the 8 movies in Marvel’s current shared cinematic universe, based on the tastes and evaluative capabilities of a comic novice.

Drake - Worst Behavior (Official Video)



Drake’s last video, “Hold On, We’re Going Home,” was a wonderfully silly short film featuring guest stars like A$AP Rocky. The one before that, “Started From The Bottom,” was also a narrative interspersed with skits. And the latest, a 10-minute clip for “Worst Behavior,” is just as gleefully goofy.

Director X’s Memphis-shot visuals include Drake’s father, Dennis Graham, strutting his stuff in a flashy white suit and lip-syncing Drake’s lyrics, as well as guest appearances from Juicy J and Project Pat in a ridiculous comedic interlude. Drake’s in there too carrying a baby, as is somebody wearing a costume of Drake’s signature OVO owl logo blown up to mascot size. Watch the whole thing below.

America's Next Top Model Winner Whitney Thompson Engaged to Ian Forrester



Whitney Thompson is engaged! The first and only plus-size winner of America's Next Top Model accepted painter Ian Forrester's proposal while sightseeing in Dublin, Ireland, on Saturday, Nov. 9.

The blond beauty shared her happy news with her Facebook friends and Twitter followers. During their trip, the London-based couple toured the Guinness and Jameson factories, visited local museums and stopped by St. Patrick's Cathedral.

Thompson has been perusing Pinterest for wedding inspiration, and she's also asked her fans for bridal advice. "Do we have to do an engagement photo shoot?" she tweeted on Sunday, Nov. 10. "I feel like I have enough pictures of myself."

Since winning Cycle 10 of America's Next Top Model in 2008, Thompson has found work on the runway and in print. "I've been thinking a lot about what I've accomplished up until this point in my life and if I quit tomorrow I would be completely satisfied with what I've done," she recently told Dare magazine.

In spite of her success, Thompson shows no signs of slowing down. "You can do anything you put your mind to if you genuinely want it," she says. "Stop talking about it and do it. You can't wait until your life looks like it's ready. You just have to do it."

X-Men: Days Of Future Past Director Reveals Wolverine Dialogue And Photo


As he is prone to do from time to time, X-Men: Days Of Future Past director Bryan Singer has shared some more behind the scenes info about his upcoming X-Men movie with his fans on Twitter. Singer tweeted the photo above, along with the text, “A little pre-looping session by remote satellite. @RealHughJackman @ShuDonner.”

The image shows a brief bit of dialogue involving Logan (aka Wolverine), who is played by Hugh Jackman. While it’s unclear who Logan is talking to, the “HelloKitty” that appears in the left hand corner could be a clue. The “HelloKitty” likely has nothing to do with the cartoon character, but it could be a reference to Kitty Pryde, who is played by Ellen Page. Singer also reveals a new image of Wolverine from the film on the monitor in the photo.

X-Men: Days Of Future Past stars Anna Paquin, Hugh Jackman, James McAvoy, Michael Fassbender, Patrick Stewart, Ian McKellen, Jennifer Lawrence, Nicholas Hoult, Ellen Page, Halle Berry, Peter Dinklage, and Shawn Ashmore.


X-Men: Days Of Future Past is scheduled to be released in movie theaters on May 23, 2014.

Ben Cohen Backflips into 7th Week On SCD


*video may be regional

Strictly Come Dancing hopeful Ben Cohen dedicated last night’s performance to the memory of his late father, reports the Sunday People.
The former England rugby ace’s dad died after a nightclub brawl 13 years ago this Thursday when the sportsman was just 21.
Peter Cohen intervened between some battling customers at a Northampton club and sustained head injuries.
Ben, playing for Northampton at the time, remembers the period as “incredibly painful”.
The star, paired with Kristina Rihanoff, said his dad will be “looking down on him” during his performance and he plans to spend the anniversary with his family.
Ben, 35, said: “Sadly I never got the chance to say goodbye to him properly. But I have the fondest memories of him.
"It was very special that Dad got to see me play rugby. There are lots of happy memories from that.”

You'll Never Guess Who's The Most Bankable 'Avengers' Star


With "Thor: The Dark World" dominating this weekend's box office, you'd be forgiven from thinking that Chris Hemsworth was one of the biggest stars in the world. And granted, the god of thunder is pretty huge; but he's not actually the biggest star to come out of "Marvel's The Avengers." In fact, he barely even cracks the top ten.

Based on the worldwide total gross of their movies, MTV News discovered the surprising top box office earner from "The Avengers." And even if you can guess who's number one, your jaw will drop at which actor fits in the number two slot:

Lady Gaga: 'I'm prepared to go down with the ship'


NEW YORK — With her wigs and outlandish ensembles, Lady Gaga is the titan of theatricality.

But peel away the layers, she says, and you see the real her, the painstakingly focused and meticulous musician and songwriter who spent two years crafting her new album, Artpop, out Monday. Every note, every word on the release comes from her heart, she says.

"There's a lot of pressure for me to deliver," she says. "I'm not manufactured. I take it very seriously. I have to live and die by my own work."

If something doesn't pan out, says Gaga (real name: Stefani Germanotta, 27), she takes full responsibility and doesn't allow anyone to dictate what she says or sings. Saying she's put off by sycophants, Gaga surrounds herself with people who tell her the truth.

"I'm at the age where you see blond hair and (breasts) and a (butt) and hear me singing about sex or fighting for gay rights, people start to roll their eyes. But no matter what happens, I'm prepared to go down with the ship," she says.

In fact, the more people push her, the more she rebels in the opposite direction.

Director Denies Lawsuit-the Truth Will Be Revealed

Lynne-Ramsay


Last week, word broke that the producers of Jane Got a Gun — the troubled Western that stars Natalie Portman as a vengeful gunslinger — were suing the project’s original director, Lynne Ramsay, for breach of contract. The suit alleges that Ramsay accepted $500,000 of her $800,000 salary before she failed to show up for the film’s first day of production; additionally, it claims, Ramsay “was repeatedly under the influence of alcohol, was abusive to members of the cast and crew, and was generally disruptive.”

Now Ramsay has fired back, denying both the allegations made in the suit and the fact that she’s received the suit in the first place. “Lynne Ramsay has not been served with this lawsuit and, when she is, she will respond in court and not in the media,” a rep for the director said in a statement released Saturday and obtained by EW. “That said, the allegations as recently reported are simply false. Lynne looks forward to presenting the truth about this situation in the proper forum.”

After several false starts and a revolving door of big-name actors — Michael Fassbender, Jude Law, and Bradley Cooper each signed on for and subsequently dropped out of a role that eventually went to Ewan McGregor — Jane Got a Gun finally began shooting in New Mexico last spring. Ramsay left the film in March; she was replaced by Warrior helmer Gavin O’Connor.

Racist Refuses Black TV Host’s Fist Bump After Learning He’s 14 Percent African


Even scientific evidence can’t convince a racist that his genes, like many people on this planet, are connected to The Motherland.

When Craig Cobb, a White supremacist who has made international headlines for trying to convert a small North Dakota town into a White man’s haven, agreed to take a DNA test for “The Trisha Show” to determine his ethnic origin, he likely did not expect the results to reveal that he is 14 percent African.

“You have a little black in you,” the host Trisha Goddard, a Black woman, said to Cobb.

Though he immediately dismissed the results as “statistical noise,” that didn’t stop the studio audience from responding with laughter and cheers. But Goddard, the good Sistah she is, tried to make him feel more comfortable with his colored side by giving him a fist bump. “So there you go bro,” she said to Cobb. But he recoiled and refused to acknowledge his “homegirl.”

He told the UK’s Daily Mail: I agreed to the test because I assumed it was science.’ Instead, he said, it was a scientifically bankrupt procedure, the product of ‘craven and debased executives,’ whose ‘goal is to shock.

Well, whether Cobb will admit it or not, he most likely was shocked and hid it pretty well behind the disdain he displayed over the results. Oh, and when he was asked how he would take it if a test he respected were to produce the same results, he replied in the most classy, White supremacist way possible: “Well if I did have any n*gger, we don’t want anymore of it.”

As NewsOne previously reported, Cobb is trying to convert the town of Leith, N.D., into a White man’s Kingdom. Cobb, who is a hate crimes fugitive in Canada, has been buying up property in the area in hopes of drawing more like-minded Whites to the town. Leiths only Black resident and his White wife, are already feeling the heat of their new racist neighbors.

“It’s interesting because she has girlfriends who like girls, so I’m like, ‘Alrighty then.’ There’s nothing wrong with that, but on the flip side, I’m like, ‘Are you ready to like boys?’

Brandy talks info on new album, Disappointment over "Two Eleven" album

As Popdust reports, when Brandy stopped off to do a little European press a few months back, she confirmed that she’s back in the studio and working with the usual suspects — Sean Garrett, James Fauntleroy, Pharrell, Timbaland, and Bangladesh — all of whom helmed tracks on Two Eleven, which underperformed commercially. Unfortunately, there’s little chance of anything new happening as long as she keeps working with the same producers. Once upon a time, B-Rocka was an innovator and tastemaker (seriously, find me a song from that era more forward-thinking than “What About Us”) — but now that she’s facing ever-fierce competition in the industry, it might be time to go back to the drawing board and try something new.

C’mon, Brandy — surprise us! Watch her interview below.

Why is 'Sleepy Hollow' a Hit?




“After just four episodes, the new drama is Fox's highest-rated series, and one of network TV’s top newcomers among young-adult viewers,” reported USA Today’s Gary Levin recently. “And its 13-episode first season has already been extended for a second. Original episodes are averaging 12.3 million viewers, including big gains from DVR-delayed viewing.” Not only that, but the show is among the top performers in the key 18-49 year old demographic group among all new shows this year.  Yes, it’s a hit. And it’s a great show.  I love it.


But why is it so successful?  Is it the acting? The writing? It’s weird, sci-fi premise? (OK, so…Ichabod Crane is resurrected and teams up with a policewoman to investigate a killing spree that was instigated by the Headless Horseman who has also returned from the 18th century to modern day Sleepy Hollow. Got that?)

It’s all that. But that’s not the whole story. Sleepy Hollow has succeeded in great part because of its social media efforts. On Facebook the show has almost 740,000 likes and on Twitter, the show’s official handle has about 53,000 followers and another account just for the show’s writers has another 11,000 followers. It has created an online buzz among its key customers and kept its fans returning. This is how to use social media to create a community. This is how we should all be using social media. These are the six keys to Sleepy Hollow’s social media success.

Rev Al Sharpton Leading Boycott Against Kanye, Film Director Guillermo Del Toro Praises Kanye


Reverend Al Sharpton, the civil rights activist, is speaking out against rap mogul Kanye West, who recently defended stamping his "Yeezus" tour clothing with confederate flags and wearing them publicly.

Sharpton, the leader of the National Action Network, threatened to lead a boycott against West during a press conference.

"The Confederate flag symbolizes dehumanization, injustice and pain. It is a stark reminder of an era in our history that was defined by the abhorrent practice of slavery," Sharpton insisted, according to Eurweb.com. "And it is representative of a mentality that looked upon blacks as inferiors who needed to remain in the shackles of subservience."

Najee Ali, the political director of the Los Angeles National Action Network, explained why the organization was making the rap mogul the subject of their boycott.

In a recent interview with The Daily Beast, Mexican film director Guillermo Del Toro (who's responsible for such films as Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth, Blade II and Pacific Rim), expressed his admiration for Kanye West and revealed that they plan on collaborating, eventually. 'Ye praised Del Torro’s Pacific Rim via Twitter shortly after the film was released.

"You know, he sent a very nice message and I think he's a brilliant musician. I admire him enormously. We've talked a few times about other projects we were going to do together through my company, Mirada. He wanted to do a multimedia show that I was going to direct, but we’ve never met. We've only spoken on the phone. We're trying to do something together."

That's all the information we have for now, but this could prove interesting.

Leonardo DiCaprio’s 39th Birthday Bash Had Kanye, 2 Chainz, And Lots Of Instagram Videos

Leonardo DiCaprio rang in his 39th birthday at TAO in New York City last night with Kanye West, 2 Chainz, and hundreds of his closest sardine-packed semi-acquaintances, all of whom apparently own smartphones with Instagram video and caught the blurry, indecipherable action of what will in no way resemble my 39th birthday party.



Check out what you can of the good times below and appreciate Leo enjoying the evening despite testing his night vision under an aggressively low riding driving cap.

Just came back from the store. It's basically a merch store with a display of her outfits, a really uncomfortable chair, a dance game, fan graffiti wall, pics and a hand-wave operated glass door.
I'm gonna go back on the last day, try the Applause dance tutorial and embarrass myself.
Sorry about the pics. I should've turned off the flash. :(

Iggy Azalea At MTV EMAs, Performs 2013's Best-Selling Track Remix



Blond rap goddess Iggy Azalea managed to upstage pot smoker and fellow twerker, Miley Cyrus by seemingly flashing her vag Saturday night at the MTV EMAs.

Despite the resulting shockwaves, Azalea laughed off her antic by tweeting a photo and insisting she showed nothing but flesh-colored panties.

Meanwhile, Iggy is thrilled to be touring her native Australia with Beyonce, whose team was first dazzled by Azalea at the Bowery Ballroom in New York.

Not only does she have more to twerk, Iggy Azalea has her own master plan for world domination and she is right on schedule. She was the first woman to be featured on XXL magazine’s Freshman cover, and she is refusing to done down her aggressive and somewhat confrontational stage persona. Now that she has made her mark on the red carpet, the Aussie rapper gives notice to all who would reduce her to a novelty act.

Like a porn star crossed with a Barbie doll, Azalea brings a striking visual flair to rap that should keep Beyonce on her toes and leave Miley Cyrus, buttless, in the dust.

THREE THINGS WE WANT TO SEE IN THOR 3

Thor: The Dark World gave us more of everything, but we’re addicts, right? We need even more! There are whole worlds and moments and storylines left to explore from the comic’s rich and lengthy history, and I don’t think any of us will be satisfied until all of them have been exploited on the big screen. But... we have to start somewhere. So, for now, I offer these three things as “musts” for the eventual Thor threequel. When it eventually comes out, I’ll be buying a ticket anyway, but this might guarantee I buy two. Or three. Maybe four.

"Nobody Says There Are Too Many Holocaust Stories”, Alfre Woodard Responds to "12 Year" Criticism


Most of us fell in love with Alfre Woodard during her role as Carolyn Carmichael. Known for not taking nonsense from her five boisterous children and laid back musician husband in the Spike Lee classic, Crooklyn, Carolyn Carmichael became one of our favorite mothers in the black film canon.

Recently, Woodard added another layer to the black woman’s 19th century identity by becoming a privilege slave on a New Orleans plantation in the fall movie, 12 Years A Slave.

As you know, this movie has received as much criticism as it has praise, and in a recent interview with Uptown Magazine, Woodward shuts down all of the negativity as she discusses how Django Unchained compares to 12 Years a Slave, post racialism, and modern-day slavery.

Here are her insights as she shared them with Uptown when prompted on the various topics:


Slave narratives.. “are vital for us to have our feet on balanced ground in the future. I think it’s a chunk of our history that we are in denial about and that we don’t accept. And it is the root, I would say, of our contemporary domestic problems.”

Nobody ever says…There are too many Holocaust stories,” or “There are too many gangster movies.” But we tell three stories [about slavery] and they want us to be done.
