Jay Z Ranked His Own Albums From Best To Worst

Rapper Jay Z ranked his 12-disc discography today on his culture website Life and Times. The top of the pile – literally, judging from the stack of CDs he photographed for the post – belongs to his 1996 debut, Reasonable Doubt. He calls that album "classic," a descriptor he also applies to Numbers Two through Four: 2001's The Blueprint and 2003's The Black Album, followed by 1998's Vol. 2. . . Hard Knock Life.

He added commentary to the rest of the entries, saying "Sorry critics, it's good," to justify putting 2009's The Blueprint 3 at Number Eight, and adding that "Empire State of Mind" "gave Frank [Sinatra] a run for his money." Meanwhile, he put 2002's The Blueprint 2: The Gift and the Curse second to last because it had "too many songs," and he qualified the last-place ranking of 2006's Kingdom Come by saying, "First game back, don't shoot me." He rated his latest album, Magna Carta . . . Holy Grail just above middle, at Number Six, by simply naming six of his favorite tracks on it, including "FuckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt" and "Tom Ford," among others.

The rapper, who celebrated his birthday yesterday by going vegan, recently kicked off his "Magna Carter" tour in St. Paul, Minnesota. While there, he played many of his favorite tracks on Magna Carta. He also recently launched the Shawn Carter Collection at Barney's, over much controversy, after multiple customers accused the department store of racial profiling. He did so after demanding the store donate 100 percent of the proceeds from his line to his Shawn Carter Foundation, which provides college scholarships to low-income students.

Here's Jay Z's discography, ranked by Jay Z (including his own commentary):

Alanis on the changing roles of women in the industry

When "Jagged Little Pill" was released in 1995, people from the record company would call radio stations and say, "Would you be willing to play 'You Oughta Know'?" Before a certain time, the response was, "We're already playing two female artists. We're playing Tori Amos and Sinead O'Connor, so we have plenty of females. We're good."

There was a quota for a very small amount of female artists. With "Jagged Little Pill," the business aspect of things made it evident that there was money to be made with female artists. The industry shifted around that era. And I don't take credit for singularly changing the industry, but I do feel that I was riding the crest of the wave. So the idea became, crassly, that women were bankable. That was lovely, but it's unfortunate that the idea of women's music being relevant came from the Almighty Dollar. There were millions of women before, during and after me that created some unbelievable art. It became a financially viable undertaking. So, I was happy to be part of that.

In terms of how it's changed in the past couple of decades, my general sense is that the culture of North America and the West is wildly sexually traumatized. There's this erroneous message that women's power lies singularly in our sexuality. It would be easy then to think, falsely, that the main aspect of our power is our sexuality and the ornamental aspect of our physicality. What often winds up happening is that, as women, we're in a context of patriarchy (whether in the music industry or otherwise), and we understandably want to find a sense of empowerment within it. The natural easy go-to is to hypersexualize ourselves to get instant power. However, it's one percent of what we have within us as women, in terms of contributing to society and to the world and to art. So it's a sad state of affairs when we rely solely on this one-dimensionalized aspect of ourselves. And it feels extreme. And it feels incomplete, and it's unfortunate that this is what we rely on — our aesthetic.

We live in a culture where our three top priorities in terms of value system are: looking twenty forever, being a billionaire (it used to be hip to be millionaire and now it seems it’s hip to be a billionaire) and being famous. And these three value systems have superseded everything, as I see it. And that's at the cost of relationships, at the cost of connectivity, at the cost of feeling, at the cost of community, evolution, servicefulness, at the cost of inclusivity, at the cost of connection with God. The only real priorities are those three priorities and everything else is a distant fourth, fifth, sixth and seventh. These days more than ever, in the music industry, the pressure is on how we look and how sexual we appear. And then it's how famous we are. All external and presentational and a moving target. It’s a dangerous era we find ourselves in as artists… where our personal worth and “relevance”—as one manager called it—is measured by these standards.

The Fashin Spot

Jamie Lynn Spears performs at Eddie's Attic in Decatur, GA.

So, I couldn't miss this show. By all means, being the Spears fan that I am. I was not missing it. I made the point to tell people i'd have pictures and even some audio!

Details: The show was awesome. She's by far so talented and probably getting half the credit she deserves. A lot of her music is written either by her or co-written with a group of 3 producers out of Nashville. Papa Spears was in attendance as was her fiance Jamie along with many friends. Little Maddie wasn't in sight.

Her opening acts were two younger girls from the Atlanta area. One of which Skilyr Hicks she was roughly 13 but by far smart and way super talented. And then another girl Sydney Rhame who has also done a few local shows opening for other artists. Both super talented girls.

Jamie was very sweet and down to earth on stage. Sang all of her own music minus a small round up of a cover by Holly Williamson and the Dixie Chicks. Also, she through in a small bit of "Oops I Did it Again" which was done quite well!

I have a few videos and photos behind the cut. After the show, she stayed after did a meet and greet with everyone who waited to do so! No charge unless you wanted a photo card to have her autograph but she was signing other things for free.

My opinion is biased, but this girl is by far super talented and deserves WAY more credit then she's getting! Once this CD comes out, i'll be purchasing it day 1!

Elementary First Look: Moriarty Returns!

The new year is going to bring Sherlock and Joan face-to-face with an old foe — Natalie Dormer’s Moriarty, seen above in a photo you’re seeing first on But what brings the trio together again in the episode, which airs Jan. 2? We hopped on the phone with executive producer Rob Doherty to get the scoop.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Set up the episode for us.
DOHERTY: A young girl is kidnapped in New York City, and Sherlock and Joan come to believe that Moriarty may have orchestrated the abduction, which is a tad confusing since she’s been in federal custody for several months now. So in the episode, they seek her out and she becomes something of a participant into the investigation into the kidnapping.

The Real Von Trapps Wanted AnnE to be in the Sound of Music Remake

The Von Trapps found out last spring that "The Sound of Music," the movie based on their real-life family that fled Austria to escape the Nazis during World War II, was being remade after almost 50 years into a live television event.

Myles von Trapp Derbyshire is the great grandson of Maria von Trapp, the matriarch of the family, who was played by Oscar-winner Julie Andrews in the 1965 film.

Even though Von Trapp Derbyshire told ABC News he doesn't understand why anyone would try to remake this classic film, his biggest problem is the casting of Grammy-winner Carrie Underwood for tonight's NBC special.

"It's just upsetting that this could potentially be the final broadcast of our story," he said. "And although her voice is amazing, she doesn't have acting experience…. It's just the overall image, she's a country star, she won 'American Idol,' she's very public in kind of a tabloid way."

Beyoncé Wears Fur-Lined Jacket and Suede Boots After Deciding to Go Vegan for 22 Days

Jay Z recently vowed to stick to a plant-based diet until Christmas Day.

And by the looks of it his wife Beyonce is supporting husband Jay Z in every way except for her wardrobe.

Whilst accompanying him to Native Foods in Westwood, Los Angeles, on Thursday for lunch, Beyonce wore camouflage jacket with fox fur collar.

The singer was wearing a £2,915 Christopher Kane wool-blend parka with real fur collar, which would have no doubt hit a bum note with any fellow Vegans dining at the restaurant.

Collapse )

Fashion faux pas aside, the mother-of-one looked effortlessly stylish as usual, teaming the coat with quilted tracksuit bottoms and platform ankle boots.

The Holy Grail hitmaker wrote on his Life and Times Blog on Tuesday: 'Psychologists have said it takes 21 days to make or break a habit. On the 22nd day, you've found the way.'

'On December 3, one day before my 44th birthday I will embark on a 22 Days challenge to go completely vegan, or as I prefer to call it, plant-based! This all began a few months back when a good friend and vegan challenged me to embrace a plant-based breakfast everyday. It was surprisingly easier on me than I thought.'

He added: 'It just feels right! So you can call it a spiritual and physical cleanse. I will post my progress. Any professional vegans out there that have any great food spots please help out! Please!

'I don't know what happens after Christmas. A semi-vegan, a full plant-based diet? Or just a spiritual and physical challenge? We'll see. P.S. B (Beyonce) is also joining me.'


Keri Russell's Home Robbed, Confirms Separation From Husband.

On Wednesday, it was reported that former Felicity actress Keri Russell was home alone during a nighttime burglary. That led to speculation about why Keri’s husband and their two children weren’t at the residence during the 3 a.m. break-in.

Apparently trying to stay ahead of the rumors, Keri’s rep confirmed to People that Keri and husband Shane Deary separated months ago: “They have been separated since early summer… The separation is amicable and their focus is on their children.”

Keri and Shane married in 2007. They have 6-year-old son, River, and 23-month-old daughter, Willa.

As for the burglary, Keri was awakened by the break-in noise, but never encountered the invaders. She called the police and officers were quickly able to apprehend the suspects, and uncle/nephew team, who were robbing a neighboring house at the time of arrest. Even though Keri’s surely bolstering her home security after the scary incident, robbers should also pay heed: Keri probably picked up some self-defense skills by playing a bad ass KGB spy on The Americans!


ONTD: Who should Felicity have ended up with?

The Sound of Music Live only a flop in your hearts, climbs every network in the ratings

How do you solve a problem like a boorish, overly snarky Twitter feed? By hushing the haters with huge numbers.

Facing off against 100-percent original broadcast competition throughout its entire three-hour run, NBC’s The Sound of Music Live! on Thursday night put 18.5 million total bums in the seats (as they say on Broadway), while scoring a 4.6 rating — NBC’s best non-sports Thursday demo delivery since the April 2009 ER finale.

Save for its opening half-hour against the always formidable Big Bang Theory, SOML at least doubled the total audience of the night’s 11 other broadcast programs.

TVLine readers meanwhile gave the production an average grade of “B-.”

NBC notes that, unsurprisingly, the top local market among the metered market households came from Oklahoma City, in female lead Carrie Underwood’s home state.

Leonardo DiCaprio Producing a Biopic on ‘Calvin and Hobbes’ Creator Bill Watterson

‘Calvin and Hobbes’ – a comic strip that hasn’t run since 1995 – has seen a run of popularity this year. There was the documentary ‘Dear Mr. Watterston‘ about a filmmaker’s attempts to get ‘Calvin’ creator Bill Watterson to break his legendary silence. Then, Watterson broke his legendary silence…only not to that filmmaker. And now Leonardo DiCaprio is getting in on the fun, producing an upcoming film on one of the most influential comic strips of all-time.

Still untitled, DiCaprio is teaming with producer Roy Lee (‘Sherlock Holmes’) to adapt the script ‘A Boy and His Tiger,’ a biopic that follows Watterson’s career from an untested artist to struggling with the unexpected success of the strip and his decision to retire ‘Calvin and Hobbes’ while still immensely popular.

Diddy mistaken for Kanye West at Art Basel


The worlds of art, music and culture intersect at Art Basel in Miami, but sometimes the synthesis isn’t quite so smooth. Art dealer and collector Jeffrey Deitch bumped into Sean “Diddy” Combs at the booths and mistook him for Kanye West.

Witnesses said Deitch, the former director of the Los Angeles Museum of Contemporary Art, had an awkward moment when he walked up to Diddy at the Art Basel hub, the Miami Beach Convention Center, on Wednesday.

One said, “Jeffrey said, ‘Hi, Kanye . . .,’ then immediately realized he’d made a mistake, and looked absolutely mortified. There was a moment while everybody held their breath, then Diddy burst out laughing. He took it really well.”

Deitch, who has relocated back to New York, where he plans to produce big art shows geared to a broad audience, confessed Thursday he got his rappers confused, but said it wasn’t entirely his fault.

He told Page Six via e-mail, “There was a big crowd gathered at the entrance to an art fair booth. I asked the dealer what the commotion was about and she said, ‘Kanye is here.’ I could only see the person from the back, and went over to say ‘Hi Kanye’. To my great embarrassment, it turned out to be P Diddy. He thought it was very funny, especially since we had spent several hours together visiting my street art show in Los Angeles.”

Meanwhile, Kanye himself was making his own impact by appearing at Surface magazine’s Design Dialogues to discuss art, architecture and design with architect Jacques Herzog moderated by the Serpentine Gallery’s Hans-Ulrich Obrist.

Describing himself as “considered to be prodigy at age 14 in Chicago,” Kanye talked about his youth as an artist, attending art school, before he realized that “my paintings were music . . . I would paint music because I could see it.”

Kanye also went on to describe how design changes people’s lives, saying, “I am not speaking out against other rappers here, but nobody needs a watch anymore. Even those who have a watch check the time on their iPhone.”


LOL. Have you guys ever been mistaken for someone famous?

'X-Men' Writer-Producer Simon Kinberg Re-Ups at Fox

The deal will allow Kinberg, who is producing the "X-Men" and "Fantastic Four" movies, to try to create Marvel-style movie universes.

Simon Kinberg and his Genre Films banner have signed a new three-year first-look deal at 20th Century Fox.

Kinberg is heavily involved with next summer's X-Men: Days of Future Past and the studio's upcoming Fantastic Four reboot as both writer and producer. The new deal will allow him to expand those franchises into full-blown universes, with the hope of creating for Fox something akin to the Marvel model of interlocking movies.

"I have a lot of ideas on how to built those brands and do what everybody is thinking of these days: Be like Marvel," Kinberg tells The Hollywood Reporter. "I want to be able to build stories over multiple movies."

Jon Favreau to bring 'Shannara' to MTV

Jon Favreau to Bring Shannara to MTV

The popular fantasy novel series from author Terry Brooks is coming to MTV from Jon Favreau and Smallville showrunners.

The Shannara series of fantasy novels, which have somehow never seen a film or TV adaptation, are finally coming to TV. Based on the series by Terry Brooks, which spans dozens of novels, Shannara is a fantasy world ready for serious exploration. MTV is developing Shannara with Jon Favreau set to direct and produce from a script from former Smallville showrunners Alfred Gough and Miles Millar, who will share executive producer credit with Brooks and Dan Farah.

“I am thrilled to be working with the Smallville creators Al and Miles again along with the amazingly talented Jon Favreau,” MTV president Susanne Daniels said. “We feel that the Shannara novels are a perfect fit for MTV as this type of fantasy genre has continuously proved to resonate with our audience.”

According to Deadline, the first season of Shannara will be based on the second book in the series, The Elfstones of Shannara. This is all quite exciting, as the Shannara series has millions of fans, and the books, while not as lurid as Game of Thrones create an incredible fantasy world. More on this as we get it!

Scandal's episode order cut from 22 to 18

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

ABC has trimmed Scandal‘s Season 3 episode order from 22 to 18, TVLine has learned.

The network gave no official explanation for the cutback, but it’s safe to say the decision was made in response to the real-life pregnancy of leading lady Kerry Washington. The actress’ spring due date would’ve made shooting those final four episodes next to impossible (and, according to sources, writing Olivia out of the show for an extended period of time was not an option.)

As it is, shooting around Washington’s growing baby bump will prove challenging enough for the series — which, as TVLine previously reported, has chosen not to incorporate the pregnancy into Olivia’s storyline.

Scandal will have aired 10 episodes as of next week’s fall finale, which means eight episodes will remain when the show returns on Feb. 27.

Kanye West reaches new level of delusion; believes hes the next Nelson Mandela

Kanye West is under fire today for claiming that he will soon be a bigger cultural and civil rights icon than Nelson Mandela.

In an interview with WGCI radio in Chicago, the notoriously self-promoting rapper said that yesterday's death of the 95-year-old South African leader will finally allow people to focus more of their attention on West's own accomplishments.

In the studio to promote his new music video Bound 2, the conversation soon turned to the day's biggest news out of South Africa. West was asked who he thought on the world stage today could possibly replace Nelson Mandela in terms of leadership, and his unconventional answer left heads spinning.

Paris Hilton's little brother Barron Hilton was jumped this morning -- and beaten to a pulp -- and he claims Lindsay Lohan masterminded the attack, TMZ has learned.

(New information bolded)

We know Lindsay's denying she ordered the hit -- in fact, she claims she wasn't even on the scene at the time of the incident -- but now we have video (above) that proves otherwise. It shows Barron (blonde hair, white shirt) and his friends confronting LiLo right after the attack.

Multiple sources connected to the situation tell us ... Barron attended a party last night at a Miami mansion where Lindsay has been staying while she's in town for an art festival.

We're told ... during the party, someone accused Barron of talking smack about Lindsay -- and a short time later he was attacked and beaten to a pulp.

We know ... 24-year-old Barron spoke with police following the incident. He claims Lohan orchestrated the beating.

Barron told cops Lindsay approached him at the party with a male friend and began screaming, "'You talk sh*t about me to my boyfriend, this is what you get."

As the guy proceeded to pummel Barron, Hilton claims Lindsay was laughing and egging him on.


Cops were called to the scene and interviewed Barron. We're told Barron doesn't know the identity of his attacker but is adamant Lindsay is the person behind the attack.

We spoke to Michael Lohan who insists Lindsay had nothing to do with the attack and had left the mansion BEFORE the fight went down.

Michael claims there are several witnesses -- including security guards -- who will back up Lindsay's alibi.

Michael says Lindsay was adamant she didn't want to be around any trouble ... i.e. drugs,  alcohol, violence ... and even had people removed from the house before the fight ever went down.


Problem with that alibi is -- the video (found at source)  of Barron nearly face-to-face with Lilo outside the mansion ... just moments after the fight.

Lindsay's had bad blood with the Hiltons for years -- stemming back to when Paris' friend Brandon Davis went on the infamous "firecrotch" rant back in 2006.

Kellan Lutz Considered Veganism But Loves Meat Too Much

 photo Kellan_Lutz-592x364_zps2f2b81f7.jpg

After going on a high-protein, high-calorie diet to gain weight and muscle for his role in “Hercules: The Legend Begins,” actor Kellan Lutz revealed that he was feeling unhealthy and was looking for a way to detox from months of movie set food.

Renny Harlin, the film’s director, needed Lutz to bulk up to play the role of Hercules, a fallen demi-god who is forced to fight a series of epic battles on earth; “He [Harlin] just wanted me cut, so I had to get cut. If you’ve ever been on a movie set, there’s food all the time. It’s hard to stay healthy because I had milk chocolate bars three times a day, and I’d just eat the whole bar.”

Now that filming has ended and the movie is scheduled to be released in 2014, Lutz is looking to cultivate a more health-conscious lifestyle. A nutritionist suggested that Lutz switch to a plant-based diet, but the star, who openly admits “I love meat,” found the switch to veganism to be too daunting. Instead, the 28-year-old opted for the paleo diet, which helped him cut out sugars and refined foods while still allowing for plenty of protein.

“I should be vegan, but I love meat,” Lutz said. “I’ve been trying this new paleo diet… and I feel healthy; I’ve cut out all of the sugars… I have candy drawers all over my place, so waking up and seeing my Starbursts and Gummi Bears… Knowing that it’s not good for me though has been very easy (to give up).”

The paleolithic diet, also called the “caveman” diet, consists of grass-fed meats, fish, eggs, vegetables, roots and nuts with close to no sugars or processed oils. It also recommends a high level of physical activity.

First Look: Rinko Kikuchi in 'Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter' Indie Film

One of the many interesting films just announced as part of the 2014 Sundance Film Festival line-up is one called Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, starring Japanese actress Rinko Kikuchi (Babel, The Brothers Bloom, Pacific Rim, 47 Ronin) and pretty much her alone (the cast lists no one else). The film, directed by actor-writer-filmmaker David Zellner, is about a Japanese girl who becomes "convinced that a satchel of money buried in a fictional film is, in fact, real." That film is actually Fargo, as you might have guessed, and it's actually based on a real story from back in 2001 (read more on the girl here & here). We have some first look photos from Sundance to go along with the announcement (congrats!), so check them out below.

Here's the first photos for Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, which kinda make this look like a Jarmusch film:


A lonely Japanese woman (Rinko Kikuchi) becomes convinced that a satchel of money buried and lost in a fictional film, is in fact, real. With a crudely drawn treasure map and limited preparation, she escapes her structured life in Tokyo and embarks on a foolhardy quest across the frozen tundra of Minnesota in search of her mythical fortune. The film is directed by David Zellner, with a screenplay by David Zellner & Nathan Zellner. It's set to premiere at the 2014 Sundance Film Festival in January in the US Dramatic Competition category. We'll be catching the premiere there. For more updates on Kumiko, the Treasure Hunter, you can visit the film's official website or find them on Facebook. We'll be keeping an eye on this at Sundance. Based on these photos and the story, and, well, Fargo itself, I've got a good feeling about this. See you in Park City.

Sleepy Hollow finale expanded to two hours;The Following's new premiere date

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Fox has made yet another change to its midseason schedule.

Instead of a previously-set two-night premiere event for the return of The Following, the network will wrap up the freshman season of Sleepy Hollow with a two-hour finale on Monday, Jan. 20 from 8-10 p.m.

The Following will still debut on Sunday, Jan. 19 following the NFC Championship Game on Fox, but will make its Monday return Jan. 27 at 9 p.m. instead of Jan. 20.

It was announced back in November that The Following would get a similar two-night launch to Almost Human, which laired originals on back-to-back nights. This move effectively undoes that.


Lady Gaga: “We should boycott Russian Olympics”

Lady Gaga appeared on Alan Carr’s Chatty Man show on Wednesday night for an interview and an acoustic performance of songs from her new album, ARTPOP.
When asked about a her regarding Olympic swimmer Tom Daley coming out, Gaga used the opportunity to air her views on the 2014 Winter Olympics in Sochi.
“I don’t think that we should be going to the Olympics at all. I don’t know if my opinion is not highly regarded, in terms of the amazing champions and people that are rehearsing and training for the event,” Gaga told Alan.
“I mean I would never take anything away from their hard work, I just think it is absolutely wrong for so many countries to give money and economy in the way of a country that doesn’t support gays.”
She continued: “Sorry, now I’m getting serious, but it’s not just that they don’t support the gay community, they pepper spray and beat them in Russia. I went to Russia for the Born This Way Ball, and I was really excited to be there, because I felt it was an important place to bring the message of the album. But it made me very sad to see the pain that some of the gay kids are in in Russia.”
Back in June, the Russian parliament unanimously passed a law prohibiting “propaganda of nontraditional sexual relations” among minors, which makes it illegal to speak about homosexuality in public, and fueling homophobia. On July 3rd, Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law banning the adoption of children by same-sex parents.
Lady Gaga’s interview and performance of “Dope” and “Do What U Want” on Alan Carr airs on December 6th.

'Parfumerie,' a 1936 Hungarian play, is an overlooked inspiration


Parfumerie," the 1936 Hungarian play by Miklós László, has the humble distinction of living in the shadow of the more famous movies (and Broadway musical) that it inspired. Hollywood has cashed in on the play not once but three times — the first adaptation was the 1940 Ernst Lubitsch romantic comedy "The Shop Around the Corner," starring James Stewart and Margaret Sullavan, which was followed by the 1949 screen musical version "In the Good Old Summertime," starring Judy Garland, and much later by the 1998 Nora Ephron movie "You've Got Mail," with Tom Hanks and Meg Ryan.

Pam Grier Lands Lead Role As Homeland Security Agent In Action-Drama

Canadian production house Entertainment One has booked Pam Grier for the lead role in a currently-untitled action drama that will see the actress star as a retired ex-Homeland Security agent who is called on for one last job which puts her in charge of a young team of ambitious agents, on the trail of domestic terrorists hellbent on anarchy in the United States.

The script will be penned by Bennie Richburg (best known for his work on The Jamie Foxx Show, One on One and The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air.

Regina King Joins Guillermo del Toro FX vampire drama ‘The Strain‘.

The Guillermo del Toro FX vampire drama ‘The Strain‘ pulled a fast one on us earlier in the week with its subtle teaser trailers, but it’s now playing on the level after being greenlit to series. Casting continues, as ‘Southland‘ star Regina King has joined the production in an important recurring role, but will she catch ‘The Strain’?

According to Deadline, King will take the role of Ruby Wain, the smart and accomplished manager of philandering rock star Gabriel Bolivar, as played by Jack Kesy. Following the cancellation of TNT’s acclaimed ‘Southland,’ King has been known to recur on ‘The Big Bang Theory‘ as a university human resources counselor.

Based on del Toro’s 2009 novel trilogy, ‘The Strain’ follows Dr. Ephraim “Eph” Goodweather (‘House of Cards‘ star Corey Stoll), a CDC operative who investigates a mysterious viral outbreak with hallmarks of an ancient and evil strain of vampirism. As the strain spreads, Eph, his team and an assembly of everyday New Yorkers wage war for the fate of humanity itself. FX’s adaptation will see a run of 13 episodes beginning in July 2014.

Also present among the cast are Sean Astin (‘Lord of the Rings‘), Roger Cross (‘24‘), Leslie Hope, Robert Maillet (‘Pacific Rim‘), Mia Maestro (‘Alias’), Lauren Lee Smith, Miguel Gomez, Kevin Durand (‘LOST‘), David Bradley (‘Game of Thrones,’ replacing John Hurt) and Richard Sammel (‘Inglorious Basterds’). Former ‘LOST’ and current ‘Bates Motel‘ showrunner Carlton Cuse will helm FX’s adaptation from a screenplay by del Toro and novel co-writer Michael Hogan.

Cano-Dontcha Know leaving the Yankees for the Mariners

Robinson Cano and the Seattle Mariners have agreed on a 10-year, $240 million contract, a source told on Friday.

The Robinson Cano contract is Jay Z's first salvo in his splashy entry into the agent game. But it'll be awhile before we know what kind of impact it makes, writes Jerry Crasnick.

Spending for arms, not outspending the Mariners, will best serve the 2014 Bombers, writes Wallace Matthews of Story

Robinson Cano is the first big-time free agent the Mariners have signed since Adrian Beltre, a move that leaves longtime fan David Schoenfield hopeful. SweetSpot

"He was a great Yankee. He was a great player. I think everybody tried hard to get the deal done. We just never got close enough obviously. We wish him the best. We hope he had a long, healthy career," Yankees managing general partner Hal Steinbrenner said on Friday.
Helping provide room to increase the payroll is the Mariners' investment in a new regional sports network that is expected to net Seattle significant revenue in the coming years.

Eureka's Amy Berg Introduces Caper, a Show About Superheroes Gone Rogue

Amy Berg wrote some of our favorite episodes of Eureka, Leverage and Person of Interest — and now she's creating a new digital series about superheroes who turn to crime, called Caper. She told us why superheroes would want to steal, and how to portray supers on a Youtube budget.

Spoilers ahead...

Berg created Caper for Geek and Sundry, Felicia Day's digital network and Youtube channel, and the first episode ought to launch early next year.

The show stars Leverage's Beth Riesgraf, Glee's Harry Shum, Jr., Justified's Abby Miller, and Glory Daze's Hartley Sawyer. The show is directed by Donald Murphy, who's worked with the Coen Brothers and Oliver Stone. And in a nutshell, it's about a team of superheroes who have a hard time making ends meet, because there's no money in saving the world — so they decide to commit a heist in secret.

True to its name, Caper is basically a heist show, says Berg. It's "a crime show that happens to feature superheroes as the lead characters," rather than a show about superheroes.

Drake pulls out of Grammy nominations show

When the Grammy nominations special goes live on Friday night, there’s one likely nominee who will be missing in action: Drake.

The rapper's latest chart-topper “Nothing Was the Same” could be in the running for multiple categories, but he won't be around to celebrate or perform during the one-hour CBS special because of a last-minute scheduling conflict.

"Unfortunately, due to scheduling complications, Drake will no longer be performing ... [he] is currently in the middle of his nationwide 'Would You Like A Tour?' and sincerely apologizes to his fans that he can't be there," a rep for the rapper said.
CBS announced Drake as among the first slate of performers back in October. His next tour stop is Kansas City on Saturday.

Katy Perry, Taylor Swift, Lorde, T.I. and Miguel were among the last acts added to the lineup that also includes Macklemore & Ryan Lewis. Perry will be beamed in from Canada and Swift’s performance will be shown from Australia, CBS said.The one-hour CBS special “The Grammy Nominations Concert Live -- Countdown to Music’s Biggest Night,” to be hosted again by rapper-actor LL Cool J, will announce the nominations in several categories. The Grammys will be presented Jan. 26 at Staples Center in downtown Los Angeles.
The Grammy nominations show will air Friday at 10 p.m. PST.

Teyana Taylor Loses Adidas Deal Because Of Twitter Beef With Rihanna


Did Teyana Taylor lose her Adidas deal because of her public Twitter beef with Rihanna? Her rep says no, but Adidas allegedly says YES. Deets inside, plus Cassie looking fab at Art Basel's VIP kickoff....

Twitter beefs rarely lead to anything good. Your fans may gas your head up that you punked somebody....but the corporate folks you get checks from just may punk you in return.

When Teyana Taylor's new Adidas shoes never came out on the slated Black Friday date....folks started talking. Rumor had it she got dropped from the sneaker deal because of her bad behavior on Twitter. (Remember when she posted up Rihanna's battered face photo after they started beefing over Rih's hairstylist supposedly making fun of Teyanas singing?)

Teyana's rep put out a statement days ago saying:

Teyana has not been dropped, the sneaker is on hold, no other comments or statement is ready to be issued at this time.

But not so fast. a Senior VP at Adidas reportedly gave a website today an (unofficial?) statement as well. And THEY are saying they have indeed ended their partnership with TT...and they don't condone violence.

‘Star Trek 3′ Recruits New Writers join Roberto Orci. ugh

J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay will co-write “Star Trek 3″ along with Roberto Orci, who penned the previous two installments for Skydance and Paramount Pictures.

Paramount and Skydance were at one point in talks with “Attack the Block” helmer Joe Cornish, but he is no longer involved. boo

As of now the film has no logline or start date but the studio hopes for a 2016 release. All of the main cast including Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are expected to return.

J.J. Abrams will produce along with his producing partner Bryan Burke and Skydance’s David Ellison.

Abrams, who directed the last two, will not direct this one as he is already committed to direct the next “Star Wars” film for Disney.

Payne and McKay have ties to Abrams, most recently penning the Bad Robot pic “Boilerplate,” which is still in development.

The two are repped by UTA and Kaplan/Perrone Entertainment.


GET RID OF ORCI, DAMMIT! I got excited when I saw the first part of the headline on Twitter, thinking they would be replacing the whole writing team, but alas!

Kirstie Alley Tells Howard Stern: “There are Tens of Millions of Scientologists in the World”

Kirstie Alley is crazy, and it’s sad. She attacked Leah Remini on the Howard Stern Show this week. “There are tens of millions of Scientologists in the world,” Alley told Stern.This is utterly ridiculous. Estimates are about 40,000. You hear Alley blow smoke through every orifice at 34:00 minute mark on the audio below.

Alley told Stern that when she told her mother she was joining Scientology, mom handed her a dictionary and said look up the word Cult. Unfortunately Kirstie didn’t know how to use the dictionary. So she saw the definition as “new culture.” She’s the most dangerous kind of celebrity.

Demi Lovato is a better person than me

"My first reaction was, 'Well that was stupid,'" the 21-year-old said with a laugh and continued by reiterating some of what she said in her tweet about the interview. "But we are always going to be in each other's lives. I was with Nick [Jonas] today and they are family. I've known them since I was 14, 15 and I have a lot of love for them."

When we pointed out that Joe's frankness took guts, Demi showed her respect for it.

"It really did," Demi nodded in genuine agreement. "He never shared his side of the story and what he had to go through when we were friends or whatever. I was like, 'Choose your words more carefully next time, but whatever, you're fine!'"

Although there was some shock value, most of the feedback Joe has received since the interview hit has been positive.
"You know, it's been cool," Joe told omg!. "I feel really blessed to have people responding in [a relatable] way. It makes me feel great, it makes me feel comfortable and at the end of the day it's my story. Take it or leave it, if you don't like it, it's fine with me, I don't really care!"

In fact, Demi is currently working on a memoir!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!, which digs even deeper detailing her struggles that no one ever knew about. "I just have so much to say," she told omg!. "I have so much built up that, like they said in 'Mean Girls,' it's word vomit. Things come out. It's uncontrollable. Luckily that's why I will have different edits."

The gorgeous "Neon Lights" singer joked with a smile: "So Joe better beware."

Demi and Joe hung together the bash, presented by McDonalds, proving one dating myth wrong: You really can be friends with an ex.

P!nk covers Billboard, confirms Grammy performance

P!nk: The Billboard Woman Of The Year Q&A

P!nk, Billboard's Woman of the Year honoree, highlights 'a positive, enormous and wonderful' 2013.

With so many achievements and all-time highs in her latest album cycle, it's no wonder P!nk hasn't given much thought to her career future beyond the 2014 Grammy Awards. At that event, she says, "I know exactly what I want to do," confirming that she'll be a performer. "I won't tell you, but it's going to be f*cking amazing."

Her memorable performance at the 2010 ceremony set a very high bar, of course. The five-minute number, currently being re-created on the U.S. leg of her tour, featured P!nk swinging around the Staples Center in Los Angeles unharnessed in a white sheet, dipped in water and splashing all the celebrities and industry bigwigs beneath her.

Miley Cyrus' 'Adore You' Is Third Single!


Miley Cyrus' last two singles, "We Can't Stop" and "Wrecking Ball," were two of the biggest songs of 2013 -- and the 21-year-old is betting on a tender love ballad to continue her winning streak. "Adore You," the opening track on Cyrus' "Bangerz" album, has been selected as the third official single from the album, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 chart in October.

According to a press release, "Adore You" -- which was produced by Oren Yoel -- will impact Top 40 radio on Jan. 6, 2014. "We Can't Stop" peaked at No. 2 on the Hot 100 chart, while "Wrecking Ball" gave Cyrus her first No. 1 single on the tally.

In fact, "Wrecking Ball" returned to the top of the Hot 100 this week, thanks in part to a parody video by YouTube user Stephen Kardynal that utilized the online char service Chatroulette and became a viral sensation. The nine-week gap between "Wrecking Ball" topping the Hot 100 (which included the entirety of Lorde's "Royals" reign on the chart) marks the longest in the Hot 100's history for a song in a single chart run.

Cyrus will be able to showcase "Adore You" live when her Bangerz tour kicks off on Feb. 14, 2014 in Vancouver. The pop star is currently performing as part of the inaugural Jingle Ball tour, which will be held at the Staples Center in Los Angeles on Friday night (Dec. 6).

The Whispered Attacks That Could Sink This Year's Oscar Contenders

For movie studios and the savvy publicists they employ, Oscar season isn't simply about touting their own contenders — it's also a months-long permission slip to launch attacks against their rivals. All it takes is a subtle suggestion at an awards season party, or a cleverly crafted email to a friendly journalist, and suddenly you can advance a narrative that could ultimately take down your movie's biggest competitor. The films that are most susceptible to these whisper campaigns are the ones that are based on true stories (like 12 Years a Slave and Captain Phillips), since they can be dinged for inaccuracy, but often, the case against these films is more unique and insidious. Here are several of the Best Picture contenders that are currently bearing the brunt of those carefully coaxed whispers.

The Flash's Iris West to be African American


Casting Director David Rapaport sent out a tweet a few days back confirming that they had begun the search for Barry Allen's supporting cast, confirming the show's title of The Flash. A day later, Rapaport would tweet out interesting images showcasing the character names of "Iris West" and "Detective West". Would you be interested to hear that we have those character descriptions? This post may not be up for long, so savor it, screenshot it, or just remember it. Unlike the Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D post, we're not going to post screenshots (due to some sensitive information about the production being contained) but these descriptions are completely legitimate.

The CW (or David Rapaport for that matter) is searching for African-American actors and actresses for these two roles.
Does this anger you? It shouldn't. In my opinion, Iris West has nothing about her in the comic books that is defined by her race. A reporter (even though she isn't; more soon) can easily be of any race in this era. Furthermore, the descriptions confirm Detective West as the father to Iris; we should probably expect a Laurel-Quentin dynamic on The Flash. In addition to the race change, Iris is described as "22-28" and "As smart as she is beautiful, Iris is in grad school studying psychology" seemingly no longer making her a reporter. Finally, we can confirm that both Iris and Detective West will feature as series regulars on The Flash, currently scheduled for a March 2014 shoot. Check below for official character descriptions.
