A fan poses with Kanye & Kim


She’s already best mates with Rihanna but it looks like Cara Delevingne is keen to add some new US superstars to her friendship circle.

The British model seemed to be getting on famously with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West as she partied the night away at the rapper’s New York gig on Tuesday.

Cara and a group of pals took in the show, part of Kanye’s Yeezus tour, and was soon posing for photos with the man himself and fiancée Kim backstage.

With a drink in hand, Kanye is seen beaming away as he wraps his arms around Cara and his fiancée, who can’t help but strike a pose for the camera.

Liam Hemsworth: Jennifer Lawrence Gets It Right When It Comes to Looking Sexy

rs_634x1024-131119183007-634.jennifer-liam.cm.111913

No need to rack your brain trying to figure out what's sexy to Liam Hemsworth. The answer was standing right next to him last night.

"I'd say just do what Jen does," he suggested Monday at the Los Angeles premiere of Catching Fire when E! News asked about Jennifer Lawrence's recent comments about how showing off too much isn't that hot—and whether he agreed.

"I agree with her. I would say exactly that," added Hemsworth, whose ex-girlfriend of course happens to be Miley Cyrus, the skin-baring starlet Lawrence was being quizzed about when she said, "Sex sells, and for some disgusting reason young sex sells even more."

Amanda Bynes COMPETENT To Stand Trial



Amanda Bynes is mentally capable of understanding the nature of the criminal charges she faces, and as a result the road is now clear for her to stand trial for DUI.

Amanda's case was in Mental Health Court this AM, and the judge read the court-ordered medical evaluation of the actress, and determined she is now competent to face the DUI charges.

Amanda's lawyer, Rich Hutton, did not object to the findings so the criminal case -- which was put on hold -- will now go forward.

Sources say the ruling will have NO impact on her conservatorship. Fact is ... even though Amanda is capable of understanding the nature of legal proceedings, she is nowhere close to being able to care for herself.

As for the DUI case ... no way will it go before a jury. It has plea bargain written all over it.

As we first reported ... Amanda has been diagnosed with Schizophrenia and bipolar disorder.

Are Anorexia Memoirs Really How-To Manuals?

lightness-196x300

The anorexia memoir is typically understood as a cautionary tale. One woman (or occasionally man) embarks on a quest for weight loss — it brings her to the brink of death; she returns with a story of recovery. Perhaps the story is cast in psychological terms (a turbulent family life, a desire for control); perhaps it’s extrapolated into sociological insight (the failures of feminism, the distortions of mass media). Yes, she was thin (and perhaps appears, thinly, on her book’s cover), and yes, she’s survived her ordeal (and published a book, no less), but her path isn’t one she can in good faith recommend. Her story must be a warning.



In How to Disappear Completely, Kelsey Osgood makes an alternative argument: The typical anorexia memoir is a how-to book. With their instructive details and seductive aura of tragic ambition, accounts of eating disorders can perpetuate disordered eating. Anorexics love stories, Osgood reports, and she’s closely attuned to the thought patterns involved in both anorexia and writing — she examines the logic by which her eating disorder operated and finds storytelling at its center. She’s written an anorexia memoir that’s largely a critique of anorexia memoirs.

Kanye West blasts Zappos for 'shit product'; Zappos responds with toilet picture

In a podcast with Bret Easton Ellis earlier today, Kanye West sounded off on the web retailer Zappos and its CEO Tony Hsieh. West complained that Hsieh had told West to focus on music, rather than his fashion pursuits, "meanwhile, he sells all this shit product to everybody, his whole thing is based off of selling shit product." Presumably this is a reference to the poor quality of shoes found on Zappos, in contrast to the haute couture brands favored by West. "My focus is on humanity," West clarified.

Zappos' response was to post this, a self-described "shit product," illustrated by a picture of a toilet in mid-plunge. The picture's meaning remains unclear.

Kim K. slimmed down with $80K worth of surgery



Weight-loss cheater! That’s what Kim Kardashian has been branded in the latest report to question how the E! reality star dropped as much as 70 lbs since giving birth to North West five months ago.

“The truth is, she took the easy way out,” declares Life & Style, claiming that Kardashian, 32, has been secretly visiting a Beverly Hills cosmetic plastic surgeon to get work done, including fillers, stretch-mark treatments and a fat-reducing ultrasound procedure on her stomach that costs up to $5,000 a session.

In all, the regiment has totaled $80,000, it’s alleged.

According to the magazine’s insider, the mother-of-one gets the Coolaser treatment, which chills the skin and then uses light pulses to vaporize skin cells — removing wrinkles, scars, saggy skin and stretch marks.

“Kim is desperate to be sexy again. She wants to go back to the way things were before North was born,” the source said.

“She loves her daughter, but she loves herself and her image a lot, too.”

While the reality star’s rep denied to the publication that she’s being treated by Dr. Ourian, insiders told the mag that she’s going to great lengths to keep her visits clandestine.

During one trip to a laser hair-removal clinic, she allegedly pretended to be visiting the Pilates studio next door!

“She even wore workout clothes to throw off the photographers and begged them to make it look like she was going inside to work out, not to get laser treatments,” a source claimed.

Another reason behind Kardashian’s extreme measures to slim down: her upcoming wedding to fiancé West.

Dished another source: “She wants to be the most beautiful bride, especially since all eyes will be on her. All she talks about is losing the baby weight and wanting to wear those skintight outfits again.”

Nick Jonas buys $3.2 million dollar home in Hollywood Hills



The Jonas Brothers broke the hearts of their teenage fans everywhere when they suddenly announced that their tenure as a swoon-inducing boy band had come to an end — at least for now. They canceled their fall tour, explaining to “Good Morning America” that “we feel like we’re best suited to do our own individual things.”

Nick Jonas — who was the one who initiated the band’s breakup — started doing his own thing immediately after, closing on a $3.2 million L.A. home just two days after the brothers’ “GMA” appearance.

Previously, Jonas was renting an apartment in New York while starring in the Broadway play “How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.” His rental was owned by hockey player Scott Gomez and was also previously home to designer Marc Jacobs.

Although Jonas could have stayed in the Big Apple, the West Coast may have been more appealing to the New Jersey native as a fresh start.

His new place is set behind large gates above Sunset Strip in L.A.’s Hollywood Hills neighborhood. Boasting views of the ocean and city lights, the Spanish-style home was built in 1938, but “renovated to exacting standards.”

Abounding with indoor and outdoor living space, the white-washed stucco home has 4 bedrooms and 5 baths on a 2,305-square-foot floor plan and includes high-end details such as a gourmet kitchen, steam shower in the master suite and a celeb favorite: state-of-the-art security.

There is still some confusion as to if Nick or Joe is the one who bought the house since Joe and his girlfriend were house hunting recently too, but since all the different articles about it say it's Nick's so I'm going with that for now. Since his girlfriend has said she's moving to LA to start her acting career I guess Nick is moving back too so maybe he needed a new house.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 Poster



The story of Hiccup continues with ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2,’ and the new poster for the film has hit the web. By the looks of it, it’s either the most heroic-looking artwork or the best awkward family photo we’ve seen in a while.

We’ve already got a look at ‘How to Train Your Dragon 2′ back when the first trailer dropped, and it seems to be a wild aerial ride for fans of the first installment. While the poster doesn’t do much in terms of amping up that excitement, it does show our lead, Hiccup (Jay Burachel), all grown up as a dragon rider.

‘How To Train Your Dragon 2′ picks up five years after the first film, which sees Hiccup and his dragon buddy, Toothless, exploring the skies and mapping out new territories. When they stumble upon an ice cave filled with new dragon and the mysterious Dragon Rider, the pair must fight to protect the piece.

Joining the cast on this new adventure are Cate Blanchett as a dragon-liberating vigilante, and Djimon Housou and Kit Harington as a pair of dragon hunters. The sequel will hit theaters in 2D and 3D on June 20, 2014.

Whitney Port Engaged to Boyfriend Tim Rosenman!



Whit found love after all! Whitney Port is engaged to marry boyfriend Tim Rosenman, her rep confirms to Us Weekly.

Nearly one month after the tall, leggy blonde's friend Lauren Conrad got engaged to William Tell, the former Hills and City star, 28, is headed for the altar, too. As Us exclusively reported in Feb. 2012, the couple first met on the set of MTV's reality series The City, for which Rosenman served as an associate producer. Although the series abruptly ended in 2010, the two "kept in touch and have always had crushes on each other," a source told Us.

Another source close to Port told Us earlier this year, "She is super comfortable with him and in love." Rosenman, a New York native, is the perfect match for the West Coast resident: "She likes that he is from New York because he is such a great tour guide when they visit the city," the source added.

Port, who currently has her own fashion line Whitney Eve. The devoted designer dealt with tragedy in March when her father, Jeffrey Port, passed away after battling kidney cancer. "Obviously times are hard, but I'm the kind of person who is going to rise above it," she told Us in June at her Charity Ride. "You get to hold things sacred and things can be like private and intimate," she said of her life away from cameras.

Port lives with her sister in Venice, Calif. near Abott Kinney street, a popular spot in the city.

Mullingar councillors planning centre devoted to One Direction's Niall Horan

Image and video hosting by TinyPic Image and video hosting by TinyPic

One Direction star Niall Horan looks set to have his own museum opened in his home town.

Mullingar councillors want to construct a centre devoted to the singer and believe it could become a mecca for thousands of 1D fans who come to the town each year to track down Niall.

Cllr Alan Davitt told Mullingar Town Council the 20-year-old is willing to back the proposals.

He said: “We have a great resource in Niall Horan.

“He’s a great representative of Mullingar and has one of the largest Twitter followings in the world.

“His family have been very good to Mullingar and very involved locally and Niall is involved in many clubs.”

Mr Davitt also recommended the museum should be located in Mullingar’s Market House and it could include tributes to other local musicians such as Joe Dolan.

And Niall’s brother Greg yesterday told the Irish Mirror that it would be a great thing for Mullingar.

He said: “It would be fantastic if they do actually set up the Niall Horan museum, it would be great for the town.

“Niall has always been a big Mullingar man, he’s never forgotten when he comes from - so he will definitely support it. It really would be good.”

James Franco Explains How He Became Famous


Jared Leto, currently starring in Dallas Buyers Club, has made a short film with his band Thirty Seconds to Mars called City of Angels about the city of Los Angeles, and for it he's gathered an intimidating cast of local celebrities to talk about their lives there, including Kanye West, Lindsay Lohan, Juliette Lewis... and James Franco.

Here we're premiering exclusive unseen footage from the shooting of the doc, in which Franco tells the story of his rise in L.A. Young Franco purportedly dreamed of "sun and palm trees" and wanted to be the "third James" to attend UCLA - following the footsteps of his heroes Jim Morrison and James Dean. Then he goes off on a tangent about broken dreams. All in all, pretty whacky but endearing, which is to say, exactly what we've come to expect from James Franco.

Twilight Cast One Year Later: Who's winning, who's losing?

It's been a little over a year since the "Twilight" saga said goodbye with the final chapter, "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Pt. 2." In the 12 months since Hollywood just hasn't been the same. Studios have tried to recreate the screaming tween magic with numerous faux franchises such as "The Host" and "Mortal Instruments," but moviegoers just won't have it. Sure, there's "Hunger Games" and potential future players like "Divergent" and "The Maze Runner," but where is our pop culture phenomenon to fill the "Twilight" void?

Sad, no?

In the meantime, the "stars" the Summit Entertainment series launched have been stretching their legs and venturing in new directions. Some more successfully than others. Actually, some much more successfully than others. With that in mind, let's review the winners and losers of the "Twilight" cast…one year later. You might be surprised who's on their way up and who's on their way down.

LOSER: Taylor Lautner



Best known for: "Twilight" saga
Twilight Character: Jacob Black
Non-Twilight highlight: Hosting "Saturday Night Live"
Why: Lautner's non-"Twilight" career has been bumpy to say the least. He starred in the thriller "Abduction" that was stupidly rushed into production before it was ready. Even with bad reviews, the tepid box office proved Lautner was not ready to top line a movie on his own. That was one reason the reboot of "Stretch Armstrong" he was attached to fell apart so quickly (also, no one wants to see that movie anyway). Lautner was also supposed to make a movie with Gus Van Sant, but that still hasn't gone before cameras. What's next? An independently produced thriller without distribution where Lautner plays a bike messenger who jumps into the world of…parkour. Yikes.

Trisha Yearwood teaches Kelly Clarkson how to cook!

As if getting married and expecting a baby weren’t enough recent accomplishments for the “Wrapped in Red” singer, now Kelly Clarkson is attempting a third goal: Learn to cook.

With help from fellow music superstar Trisha Yearwood, Clarkson prepares stuffed pork chops on Yearwood’s Food Network cooking show, Trisha’s Southern Kitchen.

What compelled the newlywed/mom-to-be to try her hand in the kitchen? “I’m thirty-one years old—I should be able to cook,” she admitted.

When the cooking pro asked Clarkson to chop some parsley, a basic kitchen task, she got nervous. “If I screw this up, I’m sorry,” she said. “I just started cooking—don’t judge me!”

But her confidence kicked in when she whisked an egg, prompting a “You got that!” accolade from Yearwood. Clarkson cracked, “This is skill!”

For the major event—filling the pork chops with vegetable stuffing—Yearwood pointed out that using the back of a spoon to mash the veggies will yield more inside. “You’re so much better than I am,” the novice says, impressed.

“I’ve done it before,” Yearwood pointed out. “Once you’ve done it, you’ll get it.”

To which Clarkson retorted, “Show off!”

Want to join in? Watch below for a sneak peek of the episode—and then make Yearwood’s Stuffed Pork Chops along with them when the episode airs on Nov. 23, at 10:30 a.m. on the Food Network.

Kelly Clarkson in this week's Parade magazine

“My life did a 180—in the most awesome way.” That’s how singer Kelly Clarkson, 31, describes how husband Brandon Blackstock has changed her world. They started dating after seeing each other at the 2012 Super Bowl, and she married the divorced father of two on October 20. And just this week, Clarkson revealed that she and Blackstock are expecting their first child together.

Read highlights from the interview below, and be sure to check out this weekend’s issue of Parade for the full story.

On the details of her wedding, where she opted to go barefoot beneath her lace Temperley Bridal gown:
“I bawled like a baby. We both wrote our own vows, and it was hard to get through them, but I did it. … Brandon was like, ‘The Notebook ain’t got nothin’ on me—come on!’ And he took me out [on the lake] in a rowboat. It was very sweet. The whole thing was perfect.”

On her life prior to dating Blackstock in 2012:
“I was single for almost seven years. Every Christmas, it was like, ‘Seriously, I’m still pathetically alone? Awesome. I’m still telling people I’m okay with it? I’m not.’”

On forgetting the Mr. Know-It-All who came before she found Mr. Right:
“I only had like three boyfriends my whole life before Brandon, and two of them were good, just not a good fit. I only had one real stinker that I wrote [music about] and made a lot of money off of.”

On Blackstock’s initial worries about dating her, since his father, Narvel, is Clarkson’s manager:
“He was like, ‘My dad’s gonna kill me if this doesn’t go well.’ I said, ‘So? We’re both adults. And it’s gonna go awesome!’ In my head, I was like, ‘I’m already married to you!’”

On how she knew she would be successful on American Idol in 2002:
“I came home after the very first Idol audition and was like, ‘I’m totally gonna win this.’ Not in a cocky way; it was like something bigger than me was at work.”

On her certainty that she’ll soon be a mom:

“My eggs aren’t getting any younger, so we’ve already started trying. I’m totally gonna have a girl. I’m manifesting it! And when I have a girl, you’re gonna be like, ‘That chick knew it!’”

On why she’s looking forward to being pregnant:
“Everybody calls me fat all the time, so I can’t wait to have a reason, instead of everybody just being a jerk!”

On how she figures she’ll be immune to pressure to rapidly drop the baby weight:
“I’ve never been Gisele Bündchen, so ain’t nobody expectin’ that! I like to set a [low] standard so people don’t expect a lot.”

EUROVISION Supervisor addresses concerns on Russia



Geneva, Switzerland - In an interview with host broadcaster, DR, Executive Supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest, Jon Ola Sand, has responded to concerns surrounding the implementation of Russia’s new laws against so-called ”homosexual propaganda” and how they could affect the competition if again held in Russia.

The Reference Group of the Eurovision Song Contest has sent an official letter to Russia’s two largest TV channels. Here they asked questions about whether the country’s much debated laws on "non-traditional sexual relations" will have an impact if Russia again should win the right to host the Eurovision Song Contest.

”From our side, this is completely undramatic”, explains Executive Supervisor of the Eurovision Song Contest, Jon Ola Sand.

”We have been asked by several of our member states and by journalists and fans, whether the new laws could affect the Eurovision Song Contest. That is why we have been in dialogue with the two Russian TV companies that are members of the EBU”, he says in an interview with Danish broadcaster, DR.

”There is no reason to believe that we cannot organise the Eurovision Song Contest in Russia”, he affirms.

If you’re a pop music fan and you’ve been on the internet this week, you’ve probably read some of the chatter surrounding the lackluster debut of Lady Gaga’s third full-length, ARTPOP. Mother Monster debuts at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 this week with 258,000 in sales.

As Billboard points out in this week’s chart numbers, Gaga’s first-week total is right in line with, if a bit off from, the recent chart-topping debuts of Miley Cyrus (Bangerz, 270,000 in late October) and Katy Perry (Prism, 286,000 in late October). A number between 250K and 300K is the typical first-week benchmark for albums by Top 40-dominating pop stars—Britney Spears will likely debut in that neighborhood when her next album drops in two weeks; her last disc did 276,000 in its 2011 debut.Collapse )

Amanda Bynes Won't Live With Parents After Rehab



Amanda Bynes is doing so well in rehab that she’s expected to be home by Christmas. While her parents, Rick and Lynn, have been involved in her recovery, Life & Style can reveal that she has chosen not to live with them once released.

An insider tells Life & Style, "Amanda will not be living with her parents,” adding, “the next step for her will be to have a sober companion or coach.” Though she won’t be living with them, Rick and Lynn will be guiding her every step of the way along with trained professionals. “She’s not leaving the facility on her own — she’ll still have someone with her,” the insider adds.

The goal is to help her transition into society properly,” an insider who was with Amanda on one of her chaperoned lunches tells the mag. “It’s a small step, but an incredibly important one. She now understands that she needs to take her medicine daily. She has her good days and bad days like everyone else, but she wants to move forward with her life — and she is. She’s very stable.

Amanda is currently staying at Bridges to Recovery, where she lives in a luxe apartment, not a hospital setting, and has the privilege of leaving with an approved chaperone once a week.

André Leon Talley: “Any African-American With Any Consciousness Would Not Go Into Barneys Right Now”

Andre-Leon-Talley


Jay Z released his curated collection at Barneys, which includes an $88,000 watch, $3,000 hoodie and a $750 mask, quietly yesterday. Despite a petition, protest and blowback from the media and fans surrounding Barneys recent racial profiling allegations, Jay moved forward with the collaboration under the condition that 100% of the proceeds went to The Shawn Carter Foundation, which awards post-secondary scholarships to students facing socio-economic hardships. Barneys, who denied the racial profiling claims as reports about a racist insider culture were released, upped the ante on the donation, giving 10% of proceeds from sales from their flagship stores and Barneys.com to Jay’s non-profit organization on “Shop For a Cause” day. They also cancelled the launch fete. For many, Barneys last-ditch efforts to put a charitable spin on the collection weren’t enough.

The New York Times did an in-depth profile on Jay Z’s decision to move forward with the collaboration, gathering quotes from fashion greats like André Leon Talley:

“Any African-American, male or female, with any consciousness of what has happened would not go into Barneys right now,” André Leon Talley, the former editor at large of Vogue, said in an interview this week. “Nor Macy’s.” He said that if he were in Jay Z’s position, “for the simplicity of making a broad statement I would pull out.”

Most agree with André’s assertion about making a statement. But if Jay Z won’t use his status to make a statement against racial profiling, consumers can certainly do so by spending their money elsewhere.

Are you still shopping at Barney's or Macy's, ONTD?

Steve McQueen is GQ's 'Auteur of the Year' (See hilarious reaction to Django in interview)

mcqueen3

Exerpts from the article:

He's leaning back by the window, talking about why he made 12 Years a Slave: “The obvious thing would be to say, ‘I'm a black person; I wanted to make a movie about slavery.’ But that's not the case. I just feel that I needed to make this film, and I think it has to do with illuminating a dark place in history and giving it light. There was a necessity, because if I didn't do it, I wondered who would've done it.”

This is a familiar story for McQueen, filling in gaps that others declined to fill. Even before he was a filmmaker, when he was a decorated visual artist—a maker of grainy, haunted photographs, video installations, stamps bearing the likenesses of dead soldiers—he was doing this, making work of such decisiveness and singularity that people tended to assume he was telling his own story rather than someone else's.

Katy vs. Gaga vs Miley: A Statistical Breakdown of This Fall’s Pop Star Diva-Off



Let’s assess together who nabbed the silver to Swift’s gold.

Who sold the most albums in their first week?

Katy Perry, PRISM: 286,000 copies
Miley Cyrus, Bangerz: 270,000 copies
Lady Gaga, ARTPOP: 258,000 copies

Winner: Katy Perry. It’s pretty wild (“wild”) that only 28,000 albums separated the three of them—but as a point of comparison, and underscoring New York’s coverline claim, Taylor Swift’s most recent album, Red, sold 1.2 million copies in its first week out of the gates last October, stomping all over (in metallic Keds) these three sales figures.

Who saw the biggest sales increase over their previous album?

In an attempt to track “momentum” (we’ve never felt more like Nate Silver than we do right now), we calculated the percentage change from the first-week sales of each singer’s previous album: Katy Perry’s 2010 behemoth Teenage Dream, Miley Cyrus’ overlooked 2010 Can’t Be Tamed, and Gaga’s 2011 monster Born This Way.

Miley Cyrus: +165 percent
Katy Perry: +49 percent
Lady Gaga: -77 percent

American Horror Story: Ryan Murphy on 'The Dead' and what's next for Madame LaLaurie


The latest installment of American Horror Story: Coven saw an immortal sadist having her first hamburger, a dead-dead-alive menage-a-trois, Angela Bassett handling fish heads and Denis O’Hare in a kimono. But there’s still even more to talk about so EW chatted with co-creator Ryan Murphy about the latest Coven developments and how Stevie Nicks fared with her guest-spot.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: This episode was much more meditative and sad, which I think you said last week.
RYAN MURPHY: Yes, I think it is probably a little more serious and I think that it’s a little darker about that horrible state they’re both in. But then on the flip side we do give you Kathy Bates and Gabourey Sidibe at a fast food restaurant.

Liam Hemsworth Says He's "More Grounded Than Ever" After Miley Cyrus Breakup



Liam Hemsworth is getting along just fine as a bachelor these days. Five years after moving to Los Angeles to start an acting career --- and 2 months after he and Miley Cyrus officially parted ways -- the Hunger Games: Catching Fire star is finally beginning to feel settled in Hollywood with two feet placed firmly on the ground.

"I'm more comfortable in my own skin than I've ever been in my whole life," the 23-year-old actor tells the Associated Press in a new interview. "Over the last five years I've learned so much. The first few years in LA were really tough and scary, but I had to figure things out for myself."

And it seems he did, but only after a highly publicized split from his former fiancee. The Australian hunk recently called it quits with the 20-year-old "We Can't Stop" singer in September after more than three years together. That same month, he was caught making out with Mexican actress Eiza Gonzales in Las Vegas.

"I know I'm a good person and these days I feel like I'm more centered and grounded than I've ever been," he said. "What I always keep in mind is that I know what the truth is and that's all that matters."

But why the new outlook now? It turns out, his costar Jennifer Lawrence has a lot to do with it! "For a few years I went down a path where I forgot to be in the moment and enjoy the moment," he admitted. "But being around someone like Jen, who is so honest and laughs all day long, I am forced to be in the right now. I'm much happier."

The Hollywood star also seems to be focusing on more extracurricular activities, including kick-boxing. "I don't fight people," he reassured. "It's a mental release to go and beat the (expletive) out of a bag for an hour." He added: "I read a lot of Zen books. And I grew up surfing, so that has always been my escape."

Bryant Gumbel on ‘Real Sports’ says no one should ever use N-word


Charles Barkley says it’s okay for him to use the N-word.
Bryant Gumbel begs to differ.


Without mentioning Sir Charles by name, Gumbel, in a taped commentary scheduled to air Tuesday night on HBO’s “Real Sports,” says no one should use the word or get a “pass” to “say the word.”

“No matter what color you are,” Gumbel said. “Not once, not ever.”

On TNT’s NBA pregame show last week, Barkley said Matt Barnes, the Clippers forward who was fined $25,000 by the NBA for using the N-word in a tweet, didn’t need to apologize to anybody.
“I’m a black man. I use the N-word,” Barkley said on TNT. “I’m going to continue using the N-word with my black friends and with my white friends.”

Clearly Gumbel doesn’t agree. “Using the N-word says a lot about you and none of it’s good,” Gumbel says. “It just advertises your ignorance.”

Gumbel positioned his comments as a set of guidelines “gleaned from 40 years in locker rooms and 65 years of being black.”
Being young is not an excuse. The word’s use as a weapon to define, demean and destroy millions of people should never be forgotten,” Gumbel said. “If you need help remembering, check out the new film ‘12 Years a Slave’ and you will never view the N-Word the same way again.”

Ben Affleck & Matt Damon will reunite to produce DC Comics' "Sleeper"



Warner Bros. is ramping up development of “Sleeper,” a long-in-development DC Entertainment property that’s set up with producers Ben Affleck, Matt Damon and Jennifer Todd.

The studio has brought on the writing team of Shawn Ryan and David Wiener to pen the adaptation of “Sleeper,” based on the series from DC Entertainment’s Vertigo imprint, written by Ed Brubaker with art by Sean Phillips. The series began publication in 2003.

“Sleeper” — set in noir universe where a few people are spontaneously developing superpowers — follows Holden Carver, a man who can absorb pain and pass it on to others, as he infiltrates a criminal organization on behalf of a law enforcement agency. His allegiances come into question, especially when he falls for the alluring killer, Miss Misery.

Affleck and Damon have a first-look deal at Warner Bros. through their Pearl Street banner. No director or actors have been attached to “Sleeper.” Lynn Harris is supervising for the studio.

The project dates back to 2008 when Warner Bros. set up “Sleeper” with Sam Raimi and Josh Donen producing through their Stars Road banner. Tom Cruise was once reported to be attached as well.

Ryan is best known as the creator and showrunner of “The Shield.” Wiener worked with Ryan on ABC’s “Last Resort,” which Ryan co-created.

Wiener worked on season two of “The Killing” and most recently as a supervising producer on Moira Walley-Beckett’s Starz series “Flesh and Bone.” He also wrote “Extraordinary Chambers,” directed by Pam MacKinnon in 2011 at the Geffen Playhouse, where it received the Los Angeles Drama Critics Award for Best Play.

Work Bitch video set was "like an orgy" + Album Listening Party Tonight!

tumblr_mu57cuKs8n1r9lwjeo1_500

Britney Spears was right ... the footage that was cut out of the "Work Bitch" music video was WAYYYY more erotic than the final cut ... so says one of the male models who was there.

We spoke with Richie Nuzzolese -- who played a hot shirtless guy in the video -- and he tells TMZ, "What's out in the video is only like half of what went down."

Richie tells us the scene he was in was "like an orgy ... very sexually oriented."

Nuzzolese says the scene -- which involved 15 super hot chicks -- was so intense, "it wasn't even like acting."

Britney Spears's little sister Jamie Lynn to record a country album

Former Nickelodeon star Jamie Lynn Spears plans to follow up her Britney duet Chillin' With You with a full-length album



The little sister of Britney Spears is recording a country album. Five years after Jamie Lynn Spears quit TV to become a teenage mum, the former Zoey 101 star has revealed that she is kickstarting her music career.

"It's like my second baby," Jamie Lynn told E! News. Although the 22-year-old said she has always wanted to be a singer, she didn't know how to move forward with her music career when she was younger.

"I don't think you just wake up one morning and decide you're going to sing," she explained. "It's something I've always done." As a young child she was offered a role on Zoey 101, she has recalled. You don't know how to say, like, 'Oh, this is what I want for the rest of my life.' You can't make those kind of decisions at 10 years old."

While there are no details of Jamie Lynn's album plans, her older sibling has begun to lay the groundwork by including her sister on one of her new songs. The pair collaborate on Chillin' With You, from Britney's forthcoming album Britney Jean. Previews suggest the track is far from a country ballad – the chopped-up song sounds closer to Kelis's Milkshake or a track by MIA.

The sisters previously collaborated on the theme song for Zoey 101, which Britney wrote and the Nickelodeon star performed. But since Jamie Lynn became a mother, at age 17, her music career has been limited to a handful of small concerts. At one of these, in 2012, she sang an original song entitled I Look Up t o You. "You can imagine who I wrote it about," said Jamie Lynn. Her next scheduled gig is on 6 December, at the Blind Tiger in Greensboro, North Carolina.

Britney Jean is due out on 29 November.

Miley's Taking Over MTV For Her 21st Birthday Bash!



Legend M is turning 21 on Saturday, and as a birthday present, MTV is handing her the keys to the channel.

Yes, beginning at 12 p.m. ET/PT on Sunday, November 23 — with the debut of "21 Candles: Miley's MTV Moments," an all-new original special that looks back at her iconic music videos, performances and MTV milestones — we're dedicating a full eight hours of programming to the reigning pop-culture queen ... all hosted by Miley herself.

Immediately following the premiere of "21 Candles," MTV will re-air the documentary "Miley: The Movement Deluxe Edition," featuring all-new commentary from the birthday girl, followed by a pair of MTV shows she hand-picked: "Awkward" and "Snooki and JWOWW." Throughout the day, Smilers who tweet birthday wishes using the hashtag #HappyBirthdayMiley or post Instagram video messages will have the chance to appear on MTV throughout Miley's on-air birthday bash.

And while we're celebrating Miley's best moments this weekend, we started early with Throwback Thursday, for which we found a clip of Cyrus buggin' out at the 2008 VMAs. Behind-the-scenes, a bee landed on her. She freaked out, shaking it off and letting out a shrill scream. Thankfully, Katy Perry and Taylor Swift came to the rescue. Classic Miley MTV moment!

Pharrell Made a 24-Hour Long Music Video for a 4 Minute Song


Will you be "Happy" after listening to the same song 360 times in a row?

Don’t have anything to do for the next 24-hours? Why not watch a 24 hour music video? (And you thought Kanye’s new video was too lengthy.)


Pharrell has filmed crazy amounts of footage of beautiful young to adorable old people dancing to create a day-long music video experience for his new single “Happy.” There are even cameos by Magic Johnson, Steve Carrell and Jamie Foxx.

The downside? Infectious as the song may be, it is only four minutes long. Which means that if you actual partake in the whole experience, you’ll listen to the same lyrics on loop 360 times in a row.

Ya game? Here’s the site.

Outkast to Reunite Next Year



After years of speculation, André "André 3000" Benjamin and Antwan "Big Boi" Patton aka OutKast are indeed reuniting next year, 2014. It was officially confirmed by Revolt TV that the duo will be heading back on the road to tour. In addition it was confirmed by OutKast collaborator Sleepy Brown that they will also be performing at next year's Coachella.

So twenty years after their debut, the duo is back. Fingers-crossed that we'll also be graced by one of the greatest duos in hip hop and pop music if all time.
