Z For Zachariah to be shot in NZ


A new star-studded film set in a remote valley which survives a nuclear holocaust will be shot in New Zealand commencing in late January next year.

The film, produced by Spiderman star Tobey Maguire and Icelandic company Zik Zak Filmworks, is based on the 1974 children's science fiction thriller Z for Zachariah by Robert O'Brien.

In the book 16-year-old Ann Burden survives a nuclear holocaust and nerve gas attack because her farm is located in a remote valley with its own weather system.

Her belief she is alone is shattered when a scientist arrives in the valley.

The screenplay departs from the book by bringing two men into Anna's orbit, not one.

Amanda Seyfried (Mama Mia) plays Anna while Pine (Captain Kirk in Star Trek Into Darkness) plays one of the men and British star Chiwelel Ejiofor the other.

Questlove and Padma Lakshmi being racist. Blergh.



The Roots is currently on tour in Japan and earlier today, Questlove posted this gem on Instagram:



questlove: Hey @dawnenglehart is it racist for me to write the Sour Tlain? #chipanesedownunder2013
dawnenglehart: Nah you're in The Loots. You're allowed.
dawnenglehart: Arrowed.
padmalakshmi: Hahahaha ha! You ruys clack me lup

Collapse )

Dawn Englehart is his manager and was with him in Japan. I don't understand why he felt the need to publicly post this, but it's nice to know what he really thinks.

I didn't manage to get a screencap, but dawnenglehart later replied to angry comments with: "It's not lacist if it's taloo" and "padmalakshmi and I get a yellow pass anyway" The entire post has been deleted. She has this great example of internalized racism posted on her Instagram, I guess that's where Questlove picked it up.

Questlove also posted a video of a Japanese woman speaking Japanese with the spoken introduction; "Ladies and gentlemen, they are talking in tongues." The post is still up. Update: The video has also been deleted. They're all just going to pretend all these didn't happen??




Man, it's one thing for some ignorant white tween to do something like this but Questlove? Ughhhhhhhh



Source: Questlove's Twitter and Instagram accounts. The train IG post and tweet were deleted, as was the Talks in Tongues video.


Edit: There's another video on Vine because social media is a gift that keeps on giving. Questlove filmed a sleeping Japanese man and titled it "McSnoleArot". Sigh.



Update: HAHA FUCK. Apparently he's been doing this for a while. This tweet is from November 2012, someone posted about Korean food and he replied, "rooks lear good : )"

Adriana Lima Says She's the Grandma at VS. Looked Divine While Saying So.

Adriana Lima blows a kiss at the photo call to celebrate Victoria’s Secret at their new Bond Street store on Thursday (December 12) in London, England.

The 32-year-old model recently chatted with Vogue UK about being one of the longest-serving Angels, having walked in thirteen shows for the lingerie giant.
“I’m definitely the grandma,” Adriana joked. “I first walked in the show in 2000, but I was working with the brand even before that, actually. My first show, Stephanie Seymour and Karen Mulder were in it, too – and it is amazing to have done the show for so long… I love the new girls, though. Cara [Delevingne] is so cool. I love the girls that they choose, they are always super nice, really excited. It’s just the most fun job.”

Britney is not a good cook, talks about kids + I Am Britney Jean Discussion Post!

It's nice to know that Britney Spears isn't asking for much for Christmas.

"What do I want Santa to bring me?—I have everything," the pop princess exclusively told me while promoting tonight's premiere of her new E! special, I Am Britney Jean. "I'm so happy. I don't need anything. I just want good health, happiness and love."

Charlie Sheen Donates To Homeless Charity


Charlie Sheen has topped off a charitable year by making a sizeable Christmas donation to help the homeless.

The former Two and a Half Men star has handed $50,000 (£33,333) to My Friend's Place, an organisation which helps homeless young people in Los Angeles.

Charity bosses have sent him a note thanking him for his generous donation, which follows recent gifts to organisations including a Philippines relief fund and an epilepsy charity.

Rich Juz Spots That E! Digitally Elongated Britney Spears in Her Doc

Last night, E! ran a two-hour documentary detailing the preparation for Britney Spears' upcoming Las Vegas residency and Britney Jean album. The entirety of I Am Britney Jean ran with its picture slightly elongated, which is weird (Britney's not even going through an overweight period) and at odds with the entire concept of documentary filmmaking. But whatever, I guess. This is E!, a place where the hardest news you're going to get is delivered by Giuliana Rancic. We cannot expect much of anything. See above [click to visit source] for a scene in which the stretching is particularly noticeable, and also check out this comparison between stills from the movie that aired and the promo that ran in the days before it:



(Note though that the promo's aspect ratio seems like it could be off too, and in the opposite, widened way. So that's really fucking confusing.)

As far as the content goes, I Am Britney Jean was not particularly raw and candid, but it was well made since it was a World of Wonder (RuPaul's Drag Race, The Eyes of Tammy Faye, Dark Roots: The Unauthorized Anna Nicole) production. The weirdest thing that Britney said was that her onstage persona/alter ego is a different person and that it's "seriously bipolar disorder." (Ever since her 2008 meltdown, it's been widely speculated that Britney is bipolar, and here she is kind of joking about it.)


It was refreshingly honest of Brit to admit, "Personally, I'm really a shy person and I'm particularly not really made for this industry because I am so shy." But at the same time it's like, why are you still doing this then? It would be one thing if she were a singer's singer or a dancer's dancer or if there were some virtuosic, honed craft that her inner artistry compelled her to express despite the unfortunate byproduct of fame. But no, her craft is being an all-around entertainer, a star, and that's how her career was engineered. It's how her life was engineered, and from a very young age, at that. If she is "not really made for this industry," is it any wonder that she freaked out five years ago and hit an SUV with an umbrella, or that she routinely shows up in public and music videos with dead eyes, looking like she wants to crawl out of her skin? Was happiness ever a possibility for Britney Spears? Did anyone ever actually think about that?


She at least seemed more alive and spirited in I Am Britney Jean than she has in years. She was often endearingly goofy. She used big-ish words like "intangibles" and "naiveté," and she also used "fart" as an expletive. She lamented, "Being a perfectionist sucks," and discussed her love of watermelon bubblegum and sex. She seemed kind to her employees and she seems to work very hard to keep the industry that has been organized around her propped up. The artist was present on I Am Britney Jean, but given her comments, you can't help but wonder if she really wanted to be.

Kate Winslet Names Her Son Bear


Talk about animal magnetism.

Kate Winslet and her husband of one year, Ned Rocknroll, have named their newborn son Bear Winslet, a spokesperson for Winslet confirms to PEOPLE.

The Oscar winner welcomed her third child on Dec. 7 at a National Health Service hospital near the West Sussex home she shares with her husband and children, Mia, 13 and Joe, 10.

In the weeks leading up to baby Bear’s arrival, Winslet, 38, had been seen relaxing, dining out and taking in a London theater show with friends.

Rocknroll, 35, who works on his uncle Richard Branson’s Virgin Galactic project, was previously called Abel Smith before officially changing his name.

Other famous Bears, aside from Paddington and Smokey, include the British adventurer Bear Grylls and Alicia Silverstone‘s son, Bear Blu.

Watching My Ex Get Famous....

You know Skylar Astin? Of Glee and Pitch Perfect and Spring Awakening, etc., etc., fame? Me too. Only I knew him as Skylar Lipstein and he finger-banged me on my extra-long, twin-size bed while watching Say Anything... in my freshman year dorm room at NYU. I’m 80% sure I was wearing Hard Tail leggings.

The first night we made out, I knew we were going to date. He's Jewish and sort of dorky. I'm Jewish and sort of dorky. We didn’t go out to dinner. He didn't take me to red carpet events. This was before good ‘ol Lipstein traded in for Astin, and I think the most expensive meal we had was at Chick-fil-A at a neighboring dorm.

Kendrick Lamar Drops 'Sing About Me' Video: Part I



With his critically applauded, epic — and now, Grammy-nominated — good kid, m.A.A.d city, — Kendrick Lamar used rhymes to tell a chilling story of a boy becoming a man in the gang-driven streets of Compton, California. And while every track on the poetic album was almost disturbingly honest, it was the haunting — and, according to Lamar himself, "definitely true" — "Sing About Me, I'm Dying of Thirst" that was the most haunting. A narration about the death of his partner's brother, "Sing About Me" is a sprawling 12 minutes long, which is why, when it came time to release the video on Friday (December 20), Kendrick decided to divide it into chapters.

this is my fave song off his album so i'm happy he did a video for it. him rapping the last verse (or at least part of the last verse)  a capella gave me chills ngl.

TDE's CEO and President Respond to Drake's Alleged Diss Toward Kendrick Lamar on "Sh!t" Remix

ken

Earlier today Future's tour DJ, Esco, dropped the remix to "Shit" featuring Drake and Juicy J. While Drake doesn't address Kendrick Lamar directly, Internet consensus is that the Toronto rapper takes aim at Compton's finest in his opening verse:

"And if a nigga say my name, he the hot shit
But if I say that nigga name he still the hot shit
Fucked up, lucky I don’t feed into the gossip
Niggas act like they don’t know but they should know
Yeah, I just think it’s funny how they danglin’ the bait
But I’m the one whose killin’ niggas on the hooks though"

This merry-go-round of words between the two stems from Kendrick Lamar's verse on "Control," where he named a number of his rap peers, including Drake, before spitting, "I got love for you all but I'm tryna murder you niggas/Trying to make sure your core fans never heard of you niggas." Drake would address Lamar's verse on "The Language," from his latest album Nothing Was The Same, as well as during his interview with Elliott Wilson for CRWN. “[Kendrick] is giving people moments but are you listening to it now, at this point in time?" he asked. "It was real cool for a couple weeks."

Ezra Koenig: Believe in Your Selfie


This week, Oxford Dictionaries announced that its 2013 Word of the Year is "selfie." One person who was less than thrilled about the choice is Vampire Weekend frontman Ezra Koenig. "You know, I got really excited about the word 'selfie' in 2012," he tells Rolling Stone. "So when I see that it's the word of the year in 2013, I feel like, 'Tell me about some new words!'"

That said, Koenig is firmly in favor of selfies. "I'm definitely pro-selfie," he says. "I think that anybody who's anti-selfie is really just a hater. Because, truthfully, why shouldn't people take pictures of themselves? When I'm on Instagram and I see that somebody took a picture of themselves, I'm like, 'Thank you.' I don't need to see a picture of the sky, the trees, plants. There's only one you."

Adds Koenig, "I could Google image search 'the sky' and I would probably see beautiful images to knock my socks off. But I can't Google, you know, 'What does my friend look like today?' For you to be able to take a picture of yourself that you feel good enough about to share with the world – I think that's a great thing."

The singer is scornful of those who see selfie-snapping as a sign of narcissism. "There's all this bullshit about 'the younger kids today are more self-absorbed,'" he says. "It's like, give me a fucking break! I've been in nursing homes, where my grandma is. I've seen some of the most selfish people on the planet in there. . . And the world that these kids are born into literally could not get more selfish. The world is so fucked-up and unequal and full of assholes. You can't blame it on the younger generation."

Koenig was unaware of "Selfies at Funerals," the recent Tumblr collecting selfies taken at what some see as an inappropriate place. "No, I didn't hear about that," he says. "But you know what? When I die, everybody is invited to come take a selfie at my funeral. Except for my enemies. They're not invited to the funeral, period."

15 (5) Best Kanye Kuotes Of 2013



The Year Kanye Let Loose

This year Kanye West broke what had been a prolonged, and mostly strict, media embargo, and he did it in a big way. West's new album Yeezus was outsold by friends (Jay Z) and frenemies (Drake)*Pretty sure they dick ride each other, but ok*, but thanks largely to his explosive and thoughtful interviews, 2013 belonged, undeniably, to him. Here are Ye's most memorable quotes from a wild year. BY JORDAN SARGENT


On Titling a Certain Hit Song

"Why do you think the song 'N****s in Paris' was called 'N****s in Paris'? Because n****s was in Paris!"

On What Inspires Him

Have a Holly, Jolly Christmas (Especially With These Ten Episodes)

It’s that time of the year again, so put on your most terrifically ugly sweater, and let’s celebrate by watching our fictional counterparts celebrate. (Because who needs a real Christmas, when you can just watch one?)

“The Best Chrismukkah Ever,” The O.C.



The O.C. has a few legacies, but none more longstanding than the popularized holiday-term ‘Chrismukkah.’ Seth’s a son of Newport with a newpsie, Protestant mother, and a public-defending, Jewish father. And when you combine the two, you only could get Chrismukkah, a beautiful interfaith holiday that perfectly represents Seth and Ryan and how they fit into Orange County (aka how they really don’t). It’s a little bit confusing, way too much, and yet so very, very right. “It’s eight days of presents followed by one day of many, MANY presents.” The O.C. had four Christmas episodes, but none come close to the first season’s “The Best Chrismukkah Ever” or the Cohen Christmas card that came out of it.

"I Am Britney Jean" Review: Britney Spears Is Back & Better Than Ever



Oops, Britney has wow’d us again! ‘I Am Britney Jean’ showed an intimate side of the singer that we’ve never seen before — from her intense dance rehearsals to her adorable family life!

With Britney Spears set to kick off her Las Vegas residency in just five days, the Dec. 27 special was an absolutely perfect way to get us excited. In I Am Britney Jean, we saw just how hard working the pop star is, the amazing team she has behind her, and how she balances planning a three-year residency, promoting a new album, being a loving mother, and a girlfriend.

Britney, 32, began rehearsing for her Vegas residency, Britney: Piece of Me on Dec. 10, and lucky for us she recorded it all — yes, 17 extremely intense days. The documentary on E! gave us a look at how a residency is put together, and Britney isn’t only performing it, but also producing and co-directing the event

It was really special to see the behind-the-scenes meetings that decided every detail of her residency — from what songs she would be putting on and what the stage would be set up like, to what costumes she and the dancers would wear. And in the short amount of time she had to set up, she also was doing tons of other things like filming the sexy music video for “Work Bitch.”

“I love sex, I think sex is great!” she admitted while we saw the super sexy footage. “But I feel a little different about it now that I’m older. sometimes I feel like I’m like 20, and sometimes I feel like I’m 50.”

The most intense parts of the documentary was seeing Brit in the studio really working hard on a new dance routine. During the studio time, Brit showed off her amazingly cut body (seriously though, that stomach!), and that it definitely wasn’t easy to get. Basically, she did some work, bitch.

But Canadian artist Anjulie hopes to put a damper in Bey’s celebration.

Sondre Lerche covers "Wrecking Ball" with Matias Tellez




Norwegian born, Brooklyn-based singer/songwriter Sondre Lerche posted a cover of Miley Cyrus' "Wrecking Ball" today with this message:

"As has become tradition, here is my Christmas gift to you in the shape of a cover of a song from the year that's about to end. Of the many songs I've loved this year (check out my 2013 playlist open.spotify.com/user/sondre_lerc…bwJrxf688j9qEPwn ), I had trouble finding one that I felt truly motivated to interpret. So while Wrecking Ball may not be the song loved the most in 2013, it turned out to be the one I would most like to play at 3 am last night. It was my friend, producer and drummer on this recording, Matias Tellez, who suggested we try a little Miley Cyrus this season. We recorded it live at Skogen, Matias' studio in Bergen where half of my next record is recorded (and where Matias also recorded one of the best records of the year with his band Young Dreams). It's a robust little fucker. A song that can withstand inhumane acts of twerking, overexposure, and yet another unwarranted cover. Please accept this gift as a token of my appreciation of you fantastic followers and/or fan. There's so much I cannot wait to share in 2014. This will be our year. Much love and Happy Holidays to all."

Charlie Sheen to Denise Richards -- You're a Heartless, Ugly Hag



Charlie Sheen has declared nuclear war on his ex-wife Denise Richards ... blasting her as a "heartless" and "ugly" hag who's holding their children hostage.

Sheen just blasted Richards ... again ... this time, he's furious that Denise won't let their children visit him to exchange Christmas gifts.

Charlie expressed his anger in a series of texts ... saying, "lemme see if I got this straight; you won't even spring the girls for 30 mins, from the 10 mil house I gave you, (100 yds away) to come down and open the gifts their dad bought them before they leave??"

"I hope your stocking is bronze-age coal stuffed along with an assortment of 8x10's of yours so you can see how despicable and heartlessly ugly you and your fermented soul continue to be."

He added, "hash tag. hag shag."


Charlie also says despite the fact Denise won't let him see the kids, she had the "audacity" to ask him to borrow his private jet to go on the big family trip that she banned him from.

Charlie says he went to Denise's home to plead with her to change her mind and to deliver gifts to the kids, but was not allowed to see them.

Charlie concludes, "This is the worst Xmas I've ever had."

Entertainment Tonight Takes a Look Back at Julia Roberts's Career (Old Interviews/Press Conferences)



Before her latest film August: Osage County hits theaters, ET flashes back on Julia Roberts' career over the decades.

Now considered one of the most iconic American actresses of the modern era, Roberts wasn't always the confident star that she is now, as she admits in ET's flashback with Roberts in 1999.

"To me, I was still really shy and insecure and thrust into this very odd working environment where one would imagine you have to be very confident and I wasn't," Roberts says of her early acting days in films like film Pretty Woman and Steel Magnolias.

Watch the video above for a look back on Julia Roberts through the years, and watch her on the big screen in August: Osage County, which opens December 27.


If Julia Roberts is nominated for an Oscar this year, that means she'll have an Oscar nomination in four consecutive decades (80's, 90's, 00's, 10's) - that's some longevity for your ass. WHAT'S YOUR FAVORITE OLD-SCHOOL JULIA ROBERTS FILM?

Ariana Grande covers Teen Vogue


Ariana Grande is backstage at Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and there's a problem. It's not a wardrobe malfunction, and it isn't her voice, either (she's fully recovered from a vocal-cord hemorrhage suffered in September). The issue producers are wrangling with is logistical: how to get the petite star on stage in a grande-size chicken costume without anyone spotting her. So much for glamour. Says the 20-year-old singer with a laugh: "I am the first in line to make an absolute fool out of myself."

There's nothing foolish, however, about Ariana's emergence this year as an undeniable force in pop music. Hollywood is littered with actresses who have fleetingly dipped a manicured toe in the waters of the music industry, but Ariana flipped the script with Yours Truly, pairing killer vocals with a hot R&B sound to earn a permanent spot in our hearts and iPhones. "The Way" was the song of the summer, and Yours Truly opened at number one on the Billboard 200 chart—something no female artist has done with a debut album since Ke$ha's Animal in 2010. If Ariana's relevance was at all in doubt, check out this endorsement from Katy Perry, who praised Ariana in a recent interview, saying she has "the best female vocal in pop music today." What's most surprising about Ariana's career: It's very possible that some of her massive fan base has no idea she's also the star of Nickelodeon's highest-rated live-action sitcom, Sam & Cat, whose episodes average 3 million viewers during the show's Saturday-night time slot.

English voice cast of classic Sailor Moon series to reunite for the first time in the United States

For many, Sailor Moon was a major catalyst that sparked an interest in Japanese animation and culture.  Next to Dragon Ball Z, Sailor Moon made up one-half of a particularly influential anime-focused afternoon action block. The Sailor Moon series was a huge influence on many children growing up in the 1990’s, especially young girls. The Sailor Scouts were childhood heroes and role models–a source of inspiration and empowerment.

In honor of Sailor Moon’s 20th anniversary and the upcoming remake, Anime Expo is pleased to welcome the classic Sailor Moon series’ voice cast for their first full reunion appearance in the United States! Anime Expo 2014 Guests of Honor, Linda Ballantyne (Sailor Moon, seasons 3 and 4), Susan Roman (Sailor Jupiter), Katie Griffin (Sailor Mars), Karen Bernstein (Sailor Mercury, seasons 1 and 2), and Stephanie Morgenstern (Sailor Venus, seasons 1 and 2) will all be participating in a Sailor Moon panel as well as individual autograph sessions.

Remaining Members of Pussy Riot Freed From Russian Jail


Two members of the music collective Pussy Riot, who in 2012 were sentenced to two years in jail for performing an anti-Putin song in Moscow’s main cathedral, were released today under a new amnesty law. Nadezhda Tolokonnikova was set free from a prison in Krasnoyarsk, a town in Siberia; co-defendant Maria Alyokhina was permitted to leave a facility in the western city of Nizhny Novgorod.

“I think this is an attempt to improve the image of the current government, a little, before the Sochi Olympics — particularly for the Western Europeans,” she said. “But I don’t consider this humane or merciful.”

Indeed, it seems that Alyokhina and Tolokonnikova wouldn’t have been freed if Russia hadn’t been embarrassed into enacting the amnesty law ahead of the Winter Olympics it’s hosting in February. The international outcry over the Pussy Riot members’ imprisonment came not only from groups like Amnesty International, but from some of the world’s most prominent artists.

Happy holidays, hunties! A new cadre of queens of RuPaul’s Drag Race may not be gracing small screens for another month or so, but that doesn’t mean they’re not already giving it.

It’s only seasonally appropriate that queens’ pre-Race gift is a medley of Christmas carols with cheekily tweaked lyrics. Think “Deck the Halls” and “Away in a Manger” couldn’t be improved? Click through and decide for yourself.
The new season of drag race begins in February on Logo.

THE VIDEO WON'T EMBED SO WATCH @ THE SOURCE.

Michael Lohan to Dina: Don't talk smack about me and Lindsay, or I'll sue



Lindsay Lohan's new tell-all book project has a new wrinkle ... if she tells all she'll end up smack in the middle of a lawsuit between her mom and her dad.

Michael Lohan believes when it comes to writing about Lindsay's childhood, Dina Lohan will tell her daughter defamatory stories about Michael.

So we've learned Michael's lawyer just sent a threatening letter to Dina, reminding her about the gag order which was imposed in their divorce ... the gag order which states, ""The wife shall not, directly or indirectly, publish, or cause to be published, any diary, memoir, letter, story" blah blah blah involving her marriage to Michael.

As we reported, Michael has already warned Dina not to trash talk him in Dina's own tell-all book.

The Lohan's have a lot to tell, if they tell the truth.

So we gotta ask -- most honest storyteller?
