Q&A with Oscar Isaac, candidate for ONTD's acting/folk-singing boyfriend

Oscar Isaac plays the unsung title “loser” of the Coen Bros.’ Inside Llewyn Davis, a folk singer in New York’s Greenwich Village of 1961 who can’t seem to catch a break.

Fortunately for Isaac, 33, a Guatemalan-born American whose musicianship is as sterling as his acting, life isn’t imitating art. This includes the beard, which he shaved off after making the film.

To many people, Isaac may seem like a “mystery tramp,” to cop a lyrical allusion from Bob Dylan, whose imminent arrival in Greenwich Village looms over Inside Llewyn Davis.

Isaac’s previous screen roles have been everywhere except the marquee. They include stints as King John in Robin Hood, an interpreter in Steven Soderbergh’s Che and Jesus’ dad Joseph in The Nativity Story. He’s perhaps best known to moviegoers as Carey Mulligan’s ex-con husband in Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive, playing opposite Ryan Gosling.

More Piece of Me Show Info + Celebrities attending the show on opening night!

Pop princess Britney Spears will fly 30 feet over the stage out into her audience when her new “Piece of Me” residency show has its world premiere on Friday at Planet Hollywood. A three-ton moving tree is the centerpiece of one of the 100-minute show’s seven acts, with Britney taking a wild bungee jump from it, swinging out and then returning to its branches.

Britney will sing and dance her way through a curtain of “rain,” snow and pyrotechnics. We are likely to see her in a suspended cage. Proving she’s not afraid of heights and fully ready for the fun of a Strip spectacular, she will be suspended from the ceiling of the new theater The Axis in Planet Hollywood (formerly PH Live) and lowered to the stage as an “angel.” Magic, anyone?

She’ll open with “Work, Bitch” and follow with “Womanizer,” “Three,” “Oops…I Did It Again,” “Baby One More Time,” “Me Against the Music,” “Slave 4 U,” “Toxic,” “Circus,” “Scream and Shout,” “Till The World Ends,” “Piece of Me,” “Hot As Ice,” “Boys,” “Perfume,” “I Wanna Go,” “Lucky,” “Stronger,” “If You Seek Amy,” “Get Naked — I Got A Plan,” “You Drive Me Crazy,” “Do Somethin’,” “Freakshow” and finish with “Gimme More.”

Planet Hollywood officials confirmed this morning our Vegas DeLuxe reports that red-carpet stars for Friday’s glittering gala opening will include Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Sia, Serena Williams, Adam Lambert, Mario Lopez and DJ Pauly D. Britney’s parents, her sons, her sister and new boyfriend David Lucado also will attend the premiere.

"I Am Britney Jean" Flops in the Ratings w/ Only 706k Viewers

Swan song. NBC's The Voice wrapped up its fall season with 14 million viewers Tuesday, down just a tick from last fall's finish. (The series returns Feb. 24). Fox's The X Factor stumbled to its own finish line with 6.2 million Thursday, down from 9.7 million last fall, and its return next year remains a question mark.

Special delivery. CBS' I Love Lucy Christmas Special, two colorized episodes, drew 8.7 million nostalgic viewers, winning its Friday time slot. E!'s two-hour Britney Spears documentary, I Am Britney Jean, didn't fare so well, managing just 706,000 on Sunday. ABC's Barbara Walters perennial, 10 Most Fascinating People of 2013,claimed 8.9 million Wednesday, up from 7.6 million last year. And ABC's The Sound of Music on Sunday averaged 6.6 million: There was no Carrie Underwood, but not bad for a 1965 film, which had its biggest audience in six years.

Winding down. TNT's three-part miniseries Mob City concluded Wednesday with a low 1.4 million viewers, down from 2.3 million for its Dec. 4 opener. And USA's White Collar wrapped up its fall run Thursday with 2.5 million.


Joan Rivers Says Jennifer Lawrence Should 'Grow Up'

Jennifer Lawrence is almost universally beloved, but she managed to make at least one enemy this past year.
It seems that "Fashion Police" co-host Joan Rivers is still holding a grudge against the Oscar-winning actress, telling the New York Post, "My New Year’s resolution is [ensuring] Jennifer Lawrence grows up and realizes how lucky she is and calms down."

Clearly Rivers is still touchy over Lawrence's comments back in November that shows like "Fashion Police" tell young people to judge others based on "all the wrong values and that it's OK to point at people and call them ugly or fat."
Rivers, 80, initially responded to the 23-year-old's comments via Twitter, writing that the actress was "arrogant and a hypocrite -- apparently Lawrence loved Rivers' show when they were complimenting her during award season but began railing against it when she had a movie to promote.
Lawrence didn't respond to Rivers' tweets directly, but she did go on to tell Barbara Walters that she believes it should be "illegal to call somebody fat on TV."
The "American Hustle" star has been candid about her refusal to lose weight for roles, her distaste for dieting, and willingness to admit when she's been photoshopped -- yet Rivers seems to think her campaign is nothing but an act.
“I love that she’s telling everyone how wrong it is to worry about retouching and body image, and meanwhile, she has been touched up more than a choir boy at the Vatican," Rivers told the Post. "Look at her posters. She doesn’t have a nose, she has two holes. She just has to learn, don’t talk if you’re doing it.”


Karen Gillan's Wig is Made of Her Own Hair


As if it wasn’t surprising enough for Doctor Who fans to see Karen Gillan make a brief return in the Christmas episode, her flowing head of hair was even more unexpected.

The actress – whose character Amy Pond showed up fleetingly as Matt Smith bowed out of the show and Peter Capaldi arrived - has been sporting a shaved head recently for her role in blockbuster Guardians Of The Galaxy. However that wasn’t the case when it came to Doctor Who – with showrunner Steven Moffat revealing that her newly restored ginger locks were in fact a wig made out of her own hair.

And she wasn’t the only one donning a wig for the episode, with Smith himself also having to opt for a hairpiece after shearing his own head for the Ryan Gosling movie How To Catch A Monster. They’re very good wigs but they’re both wigs. Though in Karen’s case that’s her own hair,’ Moffat explained. That wig is made of her own hair, it’s just detachable now. When they cut her hair they made a wig of her own hair. Doesn’t she look lovely?’

Gillan is set to star as villainous space pirate Nebula in Guardians Of The Galaxy - revealing her newly bald look at Comic-Con in San Diego earlier this year. She described the new look as ‘liberating’, adding: ‘I think everybody should shave their heads.’

Jonathan Groff goes LOOKING for a handjob in the park

I have to be honest with you guys, this article is the tealest of teal deers. But I want to pimp my baby Jonathan's new show (which is LOOKING on HBO! Premiering January 19!! You should watch it!!! It's the most buzzed-about hit of the season!!!!), so I'm posting anyway. For those in a hurry, celebrity gossip-resembling details from the article include:

- Jonathan Groff hugs somebody he doesn't know very well, but the article doesn't say who. The writer?
- Jonathan Groff finds a long blond hair in his macaroon but doesn't make a fuss about it.
- Jonathan Groff recently returned to his hometown high school (Lancaster, Pennsylvania) just to watch the school musical. So that's sweet, right?
- Several of Jonathan Groff's coworkers independently use the word "available" to describe him.


It is an extraordinarily gorgeous day in Golden Gate Park, all soft greens and sun-dappled clearings and sweetly chirping birds. A man comes into view, pushing through branches. He’s clean-cut, midwestern-looking, manifestly nervous, possibly lost. Then a second man appears—confident, silent, bearded (“not even hipster hairy. Like, gym teacher hairy,” the first man later describes him)—and immediately reaches for the first guy’s fly.

“OK, OK,” Nervous Guy says as Bearded Dude’s hands work busily away. There’s some heavy breathing, but something is obviously wrong. “I’m Patrick,” offers Nervous Guy. He goes in for a kiss and is rebuffed. “Do you come here a lot? What’s your name? I didn’t catch your name.” Nervous Guy’s body betrays the bone-deep discomfort of someone who’s either an incurable neurotic or very new to anonymous outdoor sex (soon, we find that the answer is both). He giggles nervously, is instructed curtly to stop talking, and recoils at Bearded Dude’s “cold hands.” Finally, just as things look like they might start, ah, happening, his phone rings, a shrill, jarring electronic melody—and he actually answers it, scurrying off to talk as his would-be sex partner stands by in disbelief.

Ariana Grande, Nathan Sykes Break Up

Nariana is no more. Ariana Grande and Nathan Sykes have split, multiple sources confirm to Us Weekly.
The singers, both 20, broke up a few weeks ago, one insider tells Us. "They just weren’t into it anymore."
Us first broke the news that Grande and Sykes were dating back in August after releasing their duet, "Almost Is Never Enough," for the film The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
They then confirmed their relationship status via Twitter in September after the two were caught on camera getting cozy together at Disneyland. "So, I guess it's obvious now . . . thanks to everyone who is being so lovely. I'm so happy #butweareterrified #pleasedontkillme #orariana,” wrote The Wanted singer.
"He's the sweetest. He's amazing. I have to say, he's one of the most talented vocalists I've ever heard in my life," the “Popular” singer gushed to Access Hollywood in a September interview.
In her Teen Vogue February 2014 cover story, Grande opened up to the mag about her relationship with Sykes: "It’s not as tough as people would think,” she explained. “We have the same music manager, so we can see each other’s schedules and plan little trips as often as we can.”
A source close to the boy bander, meanwhile, tells Us the couple “hardly ever saw each other” and are currently on a break.
The iCarly star, meanwhile, hinted at the possibility of a split during a radio interview with Florida’s 93.3 FLZ last week. "You’re a little behind," she responded when asked about her boyfriend. "We’re really good friends," the singer with the powerhouse vocals added.


Does Rob Kardashian Have A Secret Baby?!


The Kardashians are an open book, but could quiet Rob Kardashian be hiding the biggest secret of all? According to a new report in Star magazine, the only male Kardashian could be carrying a huge secret about a hidden love child!

An insider tells the mag that Rob spilled the news at a recent get-together at his apartment when friends noticed a teddy bear on his bed. “He said that it was a present for his son,” says the source.

Another insider adds, “The possibility that Rob may have a child has been the buzz in the Kardashian circle for a while, but no one knows for sure. And no one will talk about it.”

Rob has, however, hinted at it before. This May, he posted an Instagram note that read, “Shout to to God … Shout out Mom, shout out to my son’s mom cuz she been holding me down since high school n shout out to my son Robert the Third. lol”

Though he quickly deleted that post, it wasn’t just a one-time joke. Back in 2009, Rob shared a similar Twitter exchange with Nicole Richie. “Bout to take time today to see the ones whom I never se …” he wrote. And when Richie answered, “Like your son?” he wrote, “My son unfortunately doesn’t stay in L.A. You know that. Don’t remind me.”

According to insiders, Rob has told friends that the child was the result of a fling with a Miami woman four years ago.

Says a source of the radio silence since, “There’s a good chance that the child’s mother wants nothing to do with the fame, and that’s why she’s staying so hush.”

Rob’s mother, Kris Jenner, has tried to keep the rumors at bay as well, according to Star. “Any time it’s even mentioned, Kris changes the subject,” says a family insider. “For whatever reason, Kris is fearful that Rob being a father could hurt the [Kardashian] brand.”

But should Rob follow through with his recently reported plans to move to Miami, the source says, “Kris may not be able to ignore the buzz about him being a father any longer!”

For more on what Rob told friends about his rumored love child, pick up the latest issue of Star, on stands now!

It's Star magazine, but kould this be true?!


Demi Lovato to marry Wilmer Valderrama?

LOS ANGELES: Singer Demi Lovato and boyfriend actor Wilmer Valderrama are reportedly planning to enter wedlock.
Valderrama, 33, purchased a stunning ring from America’s house of design Tiffany’s in Pasadena, California and acted “really excited and happy”.
“Yes, Wilmer did buy a ring here. We all talked about it afterwards because he was so darn nice,” quoted a source from the store as saying.
While the source couldn't confirm that the item was an engagement ring, the ring itself was said to be “extremely stunning”.
“He chose a really classic, beautiful ring. Demi is going to be a happy girl when she gets it. He didn't say what it was for but he was really excited and happy – he seemed like any other guy getting ready to pop the question,” she said.

Tom Hiddleston vs. Benedict Cumberbatch: The Dance-Off

The Internet loves Tom Hiddleston and Benedict Cumberbatch. Their incredible performances (as Loki and Sherlock, in particular) kind of don’t even hold a candle to their real-life charm.

Selena Gomez Reportedly Can’t Stand Taylor Swift’s Friend Lorde

Looks like Selena didn't enjoy those Taylor Swift birthday party photos. Taylor and Lorde have been getting close, and Heat’s sources say that Selena is furious.

“Selena can’t stand Lorde, and has publicly trashed Lorde for not being feminist and supporting other female artists,” the source says, referring to the time Lorde called Taylor “too flawless and unattainable.” Lorde also dissed Selena’s song “Come and Get It,” saying “I’m a feminist, and the theme of her song is, ‘When you’re ready come and get it from me.’ I’m sick of women being portrayed this way.”

Ouch! Taylor obviously moved past Lorde’s poorly-worded diss, but apparently Selena might not be as quick to forgive.

The source also says that Taylor and Lorde’s friendship is only growing stronger, so Selena might need to watch her back!
“Taylor is buttering up Lorde, because she wants a musical collaboration and knows that Lorde is the hottest new thing in pop music,” the source says. “Taylor is blowing off the diss. She wants and edgier image, and Lorde is helping her craft that.”

7 Times TV Made Me Cry In 2013

From a Downton Abbey death to a prime episode of Parenthood, see which moments landed on my second annual report! Warning: SPOILERS AHEAD!

2. “The Ghost Is Seen” episode of Enlightened

If you watched the above snippet of Enlightened, I assume you are weeping like I just did (again). Mike White and Laura Dern’s HBO show was beautiful and touching always, but this fifth episode from Season 2 — in which Tyler (White) opens himself up to Eileen (Molly Shannon) — was particularly heartbreaking. Tyler’s conception of himself (as a “ghost”) is an example of one of the things that made this show original: You just don’t see these sorts of characters humanized in pop culture.

How Ya Gonna Fix It?: Wanita vs Danity Kane on Twitter

During their heyday, Danity Kane were better known for their reality TV drama and tabloid antics than they were for their music, so it’s no surprise to see the girls are already beefing despite only being back together for a couple of months.

The drama seemed to start from a quote D. Woods made to TMZ, saying that she would’ve loved to perform with her former bandmates for their recent comeback gig at L.A.’s House of Blues, but wasn’t invited. She also claimed that she didn’t even know about the group’s reunion until she read about it on TMZ back in May — something that goes against amicable statements released by both herself and Danity Kane back in August.

Henry Cavill Gears Up For Superman Sequel, Looks More Roidy Than Ever

The Man of Steel is getting geared up for the sequel, and he probably won’t be filling up on apple pie and stuffing this Christmas.
Henry Cavill is back in some hardcore training and giving Salt Lake City, Utah locals something to talk about, Celebuzz has learned.

“We thought he was a movie star, but we just couldn’t place it. So we asked him when we rang him out,” Salt Lake Running Company employee Amanda Theobald told CB! of the actor's surprise Sunday shopping trip.

"He said he's back to training at Gym Jones for the next movie."

And that means getting back into Spandex -- $300 bucks worth.

"He bought two pairs of C-WX tights and a couple pairs of Saucony and Northface shorts," she added.

The 30-year-old heartthrob also brought a shopping companion. It looks like he and his girlfriend Gina Carano are going strong, despite their brief break-up this summer.

"He was with his MMA fighter girlfriend. She helped him pick out some shorts and took care of him more than we did," added Theobald with a laugh.

"He really kept to himself and no one recognised him," except one lucky employee. "One of our employees loves Superman so he just had to get a picture with him."

Judging by the admirable parade of stylish trendsetters who flocked there for Christmas, Aspen is lovely this time of year. We've seen Elle Macpherson, Goldie Hawn, and Melanie Griffith, to name but a few. And, of course, the lovely Mariah Carey.

Vacationing with her family, Mariah (remember her version of "All I Want for Christmas Is You"?) has been stepping out in top-notch winter fashion: furs, puffers, and boots galore. While we always adore Mariah's unique and ever-glittery fashion sense, we're not quite sure about her off-white earmuffs, shades, and fur hood look, pictured above.

Punk Rock Band Releasing Britney Spears Tribute Album To Celebrate Her Vegas Residency

Britney Spears kicks off her Planet Hollywood residency December 27, and a teeming brigade of …Baby One More Time nostalgianates finally have their day. But that’s not what this article is about.

According to SquidHat Records’ Allan Carter, punk rock Britney Spears tribute band Hit Me Baby, the only punk rock Britney Spears tribute band in the world, plans to celebrate the kickoff by releasing a 13-track digital cover album under the SquidHat banner. As it turns out, HMB is actually the cover project of Attack Ships on Fire, SquidHat CEO Allan Carter’s punk project from Portland.

We received an advance copy and let me tell you, it’s one for the books. “(Hit Me) Baby One More Time,” for example, was approached with the same mercilessness Metallica approached the ‘80s.

It isn’t just one period of the Spears legacy, either. You get the carefree “Oops!” years, for sure, but you really get taken on a journey through her self-seeking “Not a Girl, Not Yet a Woman” phase, and driving it home by letting you contemplate the hyper-sexual “Toxic” age. It really puts the late 20th century under a microscope.

But more appreciated than that is the attention to detail. These songs are done the way a joke album should be done: as accurately as possible. This is our new favorite punk rock Britney Spears cover band.

Peyton Manning breaks an NFL record, beats Tom Brady while doing so

On another bizarre NFL Sunday, when Seattle lost at home for the first time in two years, Carolina secured its first playoff berth in five years, and a bunch of left-for-dead teams somehow maintained a postseason pulse, something very typical happened:

Peyton Manning threw touchdown passes.

The Denver quarterback threw four of them in a 37-13 rout of Houston, setting an NFL record with his 51st touchdown pass of the season, eclipsing by one the mark set by New England's Tom Brady in 2007.

Meagan Good’s One Wish for Christmas: To Play Whitney Houston in Biopic


Clive Davis is said to be shepherding the project, which Tyler Perry has apparently expressed interest in directing

Almost as soon as Whitney Houston died in February 2012, the blogosphere erupted with stories that pondered who could play the famed singer in a biopic, which is considered Hollywood’s highest post-mortem tribute.

Rihanna, Jennifer Hudson, Vivica A. Fox and Houston’s “Sparkle” co-star Jordin Sparks were immediately rumored for the so-called “short-list,” but now another name has emerged and it’s a pretty “good” choice.

Veteran actress Meagan Good, who currently stars opposite Will Ferrell in “Anchorman 2,” recently told the LA Times that not only is a Whitney Houston biopic her “dream project,” but she had been discussing a potential film with the singer before her tragic death.

Houston’s close friend, record impresario Clive Davis is said to be shepherding the project, which is not officially in development at any major studio, though Tyler Perry has apparently expressed interest in directing should it ever become real.

Houston experienced incredible highs and tragic lows during her rollercoaster of a life, which would be ripe for cinematic tribute a la the Tina Turner movie “What’s Love Got to Do With It?” Angela Bassett and Laurence Fishburne earned Oscar nominations for that film, and a larger-than-life personality such as Whitney’s would present an incredible dramatic opportunity for an African-American actress.

Good is a respected performer who has displayed solid chops in Malcolm D. Lee’s comedy “Roll Bounce,” Salim Akil’s wedding comedy “Jumping the Broom” and on Showtime’s ”Californication.” This past year, she also starred in NBC’s short-lived drama “Deception,” opposite Victor Garber and Tate Donovan.

We’ll keep you posted should anything develop further, but for now, try to imagine Good as Houston.


Ewwww @ Tyler Perry directing.

Zayn determined to reunite Journey for one off performance of Perrie's fave song at their wedding

Zayn Malik is said to be pulling out all the stops in his bid to get eighties rockers Journey to play live at his wedding to Perrie Edwards - so they can dance to her favourite song.

The One Direction star will exchange vows with Little Mix singer Perrie Edwards next year, and sources claim he’s determined to encourage the rockers to play signature tune Don’t Stop Believin’ on their big day.

According to The Sun the band’s guitarist, Neal Schon, has indicated that he might be persuaded to perform for one night only – but enticing lead singer Steve Perry is an entirely different proposition.

The 10 (5) Instances of Open and Unapologetic Celebrity Culutral Appropriation of 2013

People of color are constantly bombarded with acts of cultural appropriation. Thanks to Halloween, outdoor musical festivals, and the college Greek system having access to social media, and rich and ignorant celebrities, 2013 had to be cultural appropriation’s most visible year yet! So, to those who attempt to add an entire race’s marginalized dress, dance or religious adornments to their own personal walk-in closets for the sake of ‘fashion’ and more importantly, to all the people of color/allies who haven’t been able to enjoy a moment’s peace on Facebook or YouTube this year without having to shout ‘REALLY?!” at your computer screens (be sure you have a pillow to scream into handy), I bring you my Top Ten Instances of Open and Unapologetic Celebrity Cultural Appropriation in 2013!
