Early on a recent evening on the edge of Beverly Hills, Brazilian filmmaker José Padilha was breaking into song. Seated in the ballroom of a luxury hotel with Swedish actor Joel Kinnaman, the star of his new $120-million reboot of “RoboCop,” the director was feeling mirthful about the looming release of his first Hollywood production, which arrives in a hail of CG action and automatic weapons fire just before Valentine’s Day.

Fifty years ago this week, the Beatles made their first appearance in New York. We listened to The Beatles. We grew up with The Beatles. You, Bruno Mars, are no Beatles.
Despite the best attempts of the NFL and Pepsi to sell Mars as a pop idol worthy of shrieking girls and an audience of 110 million people, the Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show was a wholly unspectacular production that will join Tom Petty and The Who in the annals of instantly-forgettable halftime entertainment.
There was a palpable electricity in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome before Beyonce’s performance last year – until there was no actual electricity moments afterward- and Mars’ show just didn’t match that. It’s not really the fault of the 28-year-old Hawaii native, whose two albums fail to give him the legacy of previous performers like Prince, Michael Jackson, Bruce Springsteen and the Rolling Stones.
Perhaps the game’s 22-0 halftime margin had sucked much of the energy out of the sold out MetLife Stadium crowd or maybe the loudest members just hadn’t returned from their journeys to the restroom and concession stands, but Mars’ performance didn’t seem to have impact of previous performers in that spot.
Until the appearance by the always-game Red Hot Chili Peppers, the show felt like a snooze. It belonged at the People’s Choice Awards, not on the Super Bowl stage. It’s not great when a band in their 50s has to perform a 23-year-old song to inject energy into the biggest 15 minutes of the music year.

I wish more people would lose the stigma and treat addiction as the deadly and serious DISEASE that it is. ... http://t.co/orMPrU4jU1— demetria lovato (@ddlovato) February 2, 2014
I wish more people would lose the stigma and treat addiction as the deadly and serious DISEASE that it is. Drugs are not something to glamorize in pop music or film to portray as harmless recreational fun. It's not cute, "cool" or admire able. It's very rare when people can actually predict their addiction and even then, you never know when too much is going to take their life or take a bad batch of whatever it is their using. It's time people start really taking action on changing what we're actually singing/rapping about these days because you never know if you could be glamorizing a certain drug to a first time user or alcoholic who could possibly end up dead because they end up suffering from the same deadly disease so many have already died from. This stuff is not something to mess with. Why risk it? Addiction IS a disease. Please spread the word so we can take the taboo out of discussing this illness and raising awareness to people of all ages. RIP Philip Seymour Hoffman.. An INCREDIBLE artist who lost his life to this horrible disease.. May you rest peacefully and in complete serenity now that your pain is gone. God Bless... 🙏

I will be honest: I actually don't think she's that bad, not bad at all. This isn't my favourite style of art, but she has apparent skills as a hobbyist who paints for herself. Admittedly, I've seen worse. And it's amazing how she got her proportions pat down; I know I suck 100% at self-portraits for this very reason. Anyhow...

Philip Seymour Hoffman's death appears to be heroin-related ... and law enforcement is looking at a deadly strain of the drug as one of the operating theories ... TMZ has learned.
Law enforcement sources tell us ... they do NOT know specifics about the heroin found in the NYC apartment where Seymour died. There were 10 bags found -- 8 of them empty.
Authorities have been tracking a strain of heroin that has killed dozens of people on the East Coast -- just last month. The heroin is laced with fentanyl, an extremely potent drug prescribed for terminal cancer patients. The strain is 100 times more powerful than morphine ... it sometimes shuts down the respiratory system.
The drug -- sometimes called "Theraflu," "Bud Ice" and "24K" -- has been linked to 5 deaths on Long Island, 22 deaths in Pennsylvania and 19 on Rhode Island -- all in January.
Cops do NOT know if this strain caused Hoffman's death, but they tell us "everything's in play" until they get results from toxicology.
TMZ used a pic of a body bag being moved out of the building.
In the remaining episodes of Season 3 of the MTV drama series Teen Wolf, Scott (Tyler Posey) is struggling to find his place as an Alpha, while he, Allison (Crystal Reed) and his best friend Stiles (Dylan O’Brien) are experiencing strange side effects after reigniting the power within Beacon Hills. And in the heightened world these teenagers live in, all of their lives are in danger and everything has extreme consequences.
During this recent exclusive interview with Collider, actor Tyler Posey talked about how everyone is dealing with some crazy stuff in the second half of this season, how nice it is for them to be able to get some help from Scott’s mom and Stiles’ dad now, how Kira (Arden Cho) fits in, where things are at for Scott and Allison, his favorite scenes from this half of the season, that he’s already gotten a tease for where Season 4 will go, what he heard about most from fans, and how much he’s learned about himself, as an actor and as a person, since he started doing this show. Check out what he had to say after the jump, and be aware that there are some spoilers.

For a second, everyone was like, “Who’s this Rob Riggle guy?” until James suddenly became Rob in the Super Bowl ad for the Ford Fusion Hybrid, which was easily one of the zaniest commercials during the Super Bowl on Feb. 2.
You had us at James Franco. The hilarious iconic star popped up in a Super Bowl ad for the Ford Fusion Hybrid on Feb. 2 under some pretty hilarious pretenses. Basically, he was just playing a dialed-up version of comedic actor Rob Riggle, and the results were definitely odd, and definitely funny.
For the first 30 seconds of the ad, Rob had center stage. “This has never been done before in the history of commercials,” he says, boasting that the commercial is going to be double the length. So guess who took over the next 60 seconds?
Franco busted in playing a different version of Rob. Everything that Rob did — and even said — Franco did and said a little bit bigger. It was all in the name of stating that the Ford Fusion is twice as good as everything else. And it had a tiger!
Before the spot aired during the Super Bowl, James broke it down a little bit to Entertainment Weekly:
Super Bowl commercials are almost like movies nowadays… In the ad, a lot of the little things in Rob’s portion will have doubles in my portion, but everything will be much grander. He has a chihuahua, I have a Bengal tiger.
The commercial was creative and definitely had a certain humor to it — all in the name of hybrid cars.

After debuting the brand new ballad at an official GRAMMY after party at the Los Angeles Convention Center last month, mom-to-be Ciara premieres "Anytime,"the duet with her fiancée Future, produced by Boi-1da and Katalyst.
Justin Bieber is caught on camera “spanking” the bare backside of two strippers and “pulling off their panties with his teeth” in an shocking tape that could be made public, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.
The 19-year-old pop brat — facing criminal charges on both sides of the border — was recorded on surveillance video inside a strip club in the Australian state of Queensland during his tour of that country last year.
In a still image provided to RadarOnline.com, Bieber can be seen with his baseball cap on backwards, a security guard nearby and his two partners in crime, who are topless.
The rest of the 12-minute “crystal clear” video sees Bieber in compromising positions and romping “with two strippers during which he spanks their bum and pulls off their panties with his teeth,” a source, who has watched the entire tape, revealed to Radar.
The video is being shopped to various media outlets.
The seller is demanding a fortune for the footage which was recorded in November, last year.
A certain segment of the Internet exploded in outrage today at the news that Jesse Eisenberg has been cast in the upcoming Batman vs. Superman movie. Many feel that Eisenberg, who is probably best known for playing Mark Zuckerberg in the 2010 Facebook movie The Social Network, is too young and slight for the role. He comes off as a nerd, not a super villain. In other words, he’s no Gene Hackman.
The vitriol hasn’t yet risen to the heights it hit back in August when Ben Affleck was cast as Batman in the movie. But give fans time. They’re just warming up.
Does Warner Bros. need to be worried about all of this fan backlash? Probably not. For one thing, people are talking, excitedly, about the movie. When it finally hits theaters in 2016, anticipation for the film will be off the charts.
And the folks who take to the Internet to complain about casting don’t really represent the vast majority of movie goers. Most people don’t worry too much about this stuff until the ads start coming out. Then we’ll see what Affleck and Eisenberg, and Jeremy Iron as Alfred, look like in director Zack Snyder’s new take on the old characters.
And while Eisenberg might be an unconventional choice for Luthor, it’s worth remembering some of the other counter-intuitive casting choices that ended up serving Warner Bros. (and other studios) well at the box office.
Heath Ledger as The Joker
Before Ledger, we’d come to know The Joker as a laughing psychopath, someone who giggled maniacally while killing innocent people. Ledger, who had done time as a teen heartthrob, seemed to be moving more into serious art-house films when he took the role of the Joker in the 2008 Christopher Nolan film The Dark Knight.
Now, of course, it’s hard to imagine anyone but Ledger playing the role. The young actor tragically passed away before the movie was released but he won a posthumous Oscar for his work and the film grossed $1 billion at the box office.

While U2 makes headlines for its Academy Award-nominated (and Golden Globe-winning) contribution to the "Mandela" biopic in the form of "Ordinary Love," the band has made another one of its new songs available for download.
"Invisible" is currently available for free download on iTunes. The Danger Mouse-produced song's release coincides with the band's partnership with (RED), through which Bank of America will donate $1 for every song downloaded to the Global Fund, which works to fight AIDS, tuberculosis and malaria and was co-founded by U2 frontman Bono.
The song will be available on iTunes through 11:59 p.m. Monday (Feb. 3), at which point it will be taken off the service.
A video for "Invisible" was shot by Mark Romanek (Johnny Cash's "Hurt," Nine Inch Nails' "Closer"). A 60-second clip of the to-be-released video will be shown during tonight's Super Bowl and can be found below.
Bono explained to USA Today that the song is not the first single from the band's upcoming 13th studio album, which is expected sometime this year."We have another song we're excited about to kick off the album," he said. "This is just sort of a sneak preview -- to remind people we exist."
A deranged individual is threatening to kill the 5-year old girl who plays Charlie Duncan on Disney's "Good Luck Charlie" ... and TMZ has learned cops are taking it very seriously.
According to police docs obtained by TMZ ... Mia Talerico began receiving threatening messages last month on her Instagram -- including one reading, "Die Mia, F**king Die in hell! Kill yourself, you deserve to die."
The suspect then sent a picture of Mia's head with a bloody fist covering it ... with this message, "Yes, kill you stupid bitch."
Mia's mother contacted Disney security ... LAPD's Threat Management Unit got involved ... and now cops are making a full court press to track down the suspect.
What kind of sick person does that?
The sugar sweet 20-year-old spilled the beans on her split from The Wanted heartthrob before jetting into a fan frenzy at the Narita International airport in Tokyo.

‘He’s so talented. I am so glad to have met him and have a friend like him in my life. He’s an amazing person. It was very civil. It was mutual,’ she told US radio DJ Showbiz Shelly.
‘He’s such a great person. I adore him and he’s so talented.’
She should date the Biebs next, tbh.

Gilmore Girl mega-fans will remember that the show’s fast-quipping mother-daughter characters, Lorelai and Rory (forever!), managed to incorporate George Lucas into their rapid-fire pop-culture references on more than one occasion. (Example from Lorelai: “Oh my God, George Lucas wishes he had this sound system.”) Those lines were not the only ways in which Amy Sherman-Palladino’s sweet comedy-drama managed to collide with the science-fiction demi-god, though—on one occasion, the Star Wars creator actually stopped by the show’s Burbank set.
During a Reddit AMA, Nicole Holofcener referenced the incident, which occurred when the Enough Said filmmaker directed an episode of Gilmore Girls in 2001. When asked by a fan what her most terrifying moment on any set was, the writer/director revealed, “I guess scariest was when I was directing Gilmore Girls and George Lucas was visiting the set and he stood in front of the monitor with the whole crew listening, and asked me why I set a shot up the way that I did. I wanted to barf.”
This anecdote raises so many questions—mainly: does this mean George Lucas was a mega-Gilmore Girls fan like us? Sadly, not. Holofcener fleshed out the story last year in an interview with Flicks and the City. “His daughter was apparently a fan of the show, so he came as a guest,” Holofcener said, explaining why Lucas was on the set of a mother-daughter coming-of-age drama series in the first place. “He was standing at the monitor with his daughter watching a shot that I had set up, and it was actually not a well set-up shot to begin with, which happens occasionally,” she continued.
“As I was setting it up, as we were about to shoot, I was like, ‘You know, that’s not really the best angle for what I’m trying to do.’ Of course the whole crew was listening to everything [Lucas] said and following him around like Jesus. There were about 20 people standing behind me and him when he said, ‘Why would you set it up like that?’ He probably didn’t even mean to be mean. I don’t know, maybe he was just trying to chat. But it was mortifying.”
Making the matter even worse, Holofcener previously told Vulture that a People magazine reporter happened to be on set during the incident. And as bad luck would have it, Holofcener only directed one episode of Gilmore Girls ever. So out of the hundreds of episodes of the series, Lucas showed up to backseat-direct hers.

All of the names have all been changed, but by the looks of this trailer, Michael Winterbottom’s “The Face of an Angel” is definitely very closely based on the Amanda Knox murder trial. Daniel Bruhl and Kate Beckinsale take the lead roles here, as a journalist and documentary filmmaker, respectively, each covering the trial and the media circus surrounding it.
Jessica and Elizabeth are the two girls taking the place of Amanda Knox and her murdered roommate Meredith Kercher here, two girls who look very similar but whose differing personalities (one “very quiet,” the other “sexual,” according to this trailer, as if the two are mutually exclusive) prove fascinating to the stampede of media rushing to cover the salacious murder.

Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers put on a stellar halftime show during an otherwise tedious Super Bowl, but were RHCP performing live? According to some noted guitar experts, the answer is a solid no.
Despite some initial hesitation, the world seemed to thoroughly embrace Bruno Mars‘ Super Bowl halftime performance on Feb. 2. However, some very observant Twitter users put a dent in the Red Hot Chili Peppers portion of the performance when they noticed that Flea‘s bass guitar wasn’t even plugged in. Yikes.
Hat tip to Vulture, who picked up on Living Colour guitarist Vernon Reid‘s Tweet about Flea not playing live. “That guitar is plugged into NOTHING,” he wrote, as the band took the stage with Mars for a rousing rendition of “Give It Away.”

The cast of “Seinfeld” – a couple of cast members, anyway — really did get together for a reunion on Sunday night, at the start of halftime in the Super Bowl.
But only the short version of the reunion was on television. The rest — perhaps five minutes’ worth – is posted online as part of Jerry Seinfeld’s web series, “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee.”
The vignette features a conversation over coffee in the familiar setting of Tom’s Restaurant between Jason Alexander as George Costanza and Mr. Seinfeld as fictional Jerry (with a special guest appearance by Wayne Knight as Newman). The long form popped up on the Sony-owned website Crackle immediately after the 90-second version was introduced by the Fox broadcast team at the break of the game on Sunday.
As he promised in a radio appearance last week, Mr. Seinfeld, with the help of his “Seinfeld” co-creator, Larry David, produced a special “Seinfeld” attraction, reaching back into the past for some new comedy from some of the most iconic characters in the history of television. Mr. Seinfeld and Mr. David wrote the segment and Mr. David directed it.
In a statement released after the segment appeared on Fox Sunday, Mr. Seinfeld said: “Fox approached Larry and me about doing some kind of ‘Seinfeld’ reunion for the halftime broadcast because of the New York connection. So we thought throwing Jerry, George and Newman into a ‘Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee’ was a fun way to do it. Larry and I wrote the script in one sitting, just like old times, and working with him, Jason and Wayne was a total blast, as it always was.”
The Super Bowl promotion was not a commercial, as Mr. Seinfeld also promised, because neither he nor Sony Entertainment, which owns the Crackle site, paid for the “Seinfeld” presence during the game. Fox was looking for an entertainment feature to lead into its halftime coverage and contacted Mr. Seinfeld.
Mr. Seinfeld has been building a substantial audience (more than 25 million views in a recent count) for “Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee,” and the series has featured guests like Jay Leno, David Letterman, Tina Fey and Louis C. K. But those are real comedians, not comic characters. And those editions are not scripted, as this one was.
But maybe the reunion of “Seinfeld” characters will open a door to other visits by fictional comic characters. The casts of both “Friends” and “Frasier,” for example, are already closely associated with coffee.

Dylan Sprayberry, who played young Clark Kent, will recur on the MTV drama.
The younger-skewing cable network announced Monday that Dylan Sprayberry has boarded the cast of Teen Wolf.
Sprayberry will play Liam, a new freshman at Beacon Hills High School. He'll have a heavy recurring role in the previously announced fourth season of the series.
The role marks the latest gig for Sprayberry, who also played a young version of Blaine's brother, Cooper (Matt Bomer) on Fox's Glee. He's repped by UTA and Pallas Management.

Aspiring actor Nicholas Ryan, 32, spent over $5,000 in an attempt to look like Ryan Gosling. Effing LOL, am I right? Looking on the bright side, he's only spent 5 Gs, but still, that's a lot of money to spend to look absolutely nothing like Ryan Gosling. Nicholas says he is happy with the results and goes on to add this little nugget of delusion, "Ryan Gosling does well with the ladies, hopefully so can I." Oh Nicholas, I just can't with you. I wish you well. Especially when you wake up to reality. I'm guessing those are going to be some rough days.

Anybody worried about how Bruno Mars would do on one of the world's largest stages had obviously never seen the young star perform live. That all changed Sunday night when tens of millions got their first chance to see why he's one of the most exciting live acts of his generation.
Mars, 28, took his high-powered live show to Super Bowl halftime, creating what felt like an intimate show in the arena in East Rutherford, N.J., and supersizing it in what has become a defining moment for those who preceded him on the list of halftime performers in the big game.
The Grammy Award-winning singer eliminated any doubters from the second he appeared on screen in a skinny tie and gold jacket almost as dazzling as his smile. He played a deep-groove drum solo while rolling across the field on a raised, motorized platform, then joined his smoking-hot live band for a series of energetically executed hits that were clearly not lip-synced. He then seamlessly integrated the Red Hot Chili Peppers into his set.
"There were a lot of doubters and my man delivered," Fox commentator Howie Long said after the performance.
Hard to disagree. There were no flubs, no negative moments that will live on at the water cooler Monday morning. And while you can argue about the entertainment value of watching shirtless Chili Peppers gambol about the stage, the 50-year-old Rock and Roll Hall of Famers managed to match Mars' energy in a brief appearance that was no less memorable.

Bobbi Kristina Brown is certain her late mom Whitney Houston would approve of her marriage to Nick Gordon.
The daughter of late singing legend Whitney Houston married Nick Gordon, who was raised as her stepbrother, in a secret ceremony last month.
Whitney took Nick, 24, in when he was 12 and his relationship with Bobbi has raised some eyebrows, despite the fact they share no blood relatives.
However, the 20-year-old says she would never have gotten through her mother's tragic death in 2012 had it not been for her partner.
"He's saved my life through such an extremely difficult time. I was very, very low at some points. He's been everything for me and that means a lot to me," she explained to British newspaper The Sun.
"If my mother could see me now she would just be so incredibly happy. I can just see her - she'd be running around fussing about the wedding."
Bobbi is sure her late mom is smiling down at her and Nick.
"She wanted this," she said.
"She would always be saying to us, 'You guys are going to get married. I already know you're going to get married and have children.'
"But at the time, we really didn't think it was going to happen."
The couple are now planning a big second wedding in the summer as a public declaration of their love.
While they feel at ease with their relationship, Bobbi can understand why some people have reservations.
"Out of nowhere, we fell madly in love with each other," she admitted.
"It took us completely by surprise, just like Mom's death did. Before then, we had lived as best friends, as brother and sister."

Matthew McConaughey is on his knees, begging me to take him back. ‘I am nothing!’ he implores, his hands clasped, rocking back and forth. ‘My life is nothing without you! If you’ll take me back I can be something!’
He is halfway through explaining the DNA of the romcom to me. We’ve already done Boy Meets Girl and Boy Loses Girl. We've touched on one peculiarity of the romcoms McConaughey appeared in in the 2000s, which is Boy Strips For Girl – a scenario that tested the ingenuity of screenwriters in film after film (shower scene, surf scene, a change of shirt after a sweaty commute, change of T-shirt after it is splashed by passing truck, job as a submariner).
Now we’ve got to Man Chases After Girl, generally by motorbike (How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days) or moped (The Wedding Planner). We’re at the climax. The kisser. Crunch time.
‘The directors in those things always want the man to come crawling back on all fours,’ McConaughey says. ‘“I was nothing”, and so on and so forth… I was always like, what woman wants that guy? I’ve got to find a way to keep the balls on the guy. To walk back in with dignity and stand tall.’
He leaps to his feet with one bound, and starts pacing. ‘I don’t mind going, “I’m sorry I screwed up.” Say you want to give it another shot. I can do that. I can understand that. End it with a little bit of hope. But do we have to wrap it up with the guy completely emasculated going, “Take me back!” and we lived happily ever after and had eight kids. Who wants that guy?’ He upturns his palms to the heavens.
Nobody, I murmur, spellbound.

Maserati, the luxury automotive brand, celebrated its all-new Ghibli with a 90-second broadcast spot titled "Strike," starring Quvenzhané Wallis, and directed by David Gordon Green (George Washington), during the first quarter of Super Bowl 48.
The $66,900 Ghibli (cheap compared to the car maker's other offerings) was first unveiled to the U.S. in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show. It's Maserati's first-ever mid-size four-door luxury sports sedan vehicle.
Filmed on location in Los Angeles, "Strike" is described by the company in a press release as "a poetic nod to a brand with proven tradition and one of the highest standards of quality in the industry, who has been hard at work engineering an automobile that will usher it into the next 100 years of innovation—an automobile with power and personality capable of striking against the status quo. The spot is relevant to Americans everywhere who have had struggles and obstacles to overcome. It is a reminder that with steadfast commitment to hard work and unwavering passion, we can deal with our own "giants" around us, we can overcome them and achieve what we set out to do."
The broadcast spot was created in partnership with independent advertising agency, Wieden+Kennedy (W+K), based out of Portland, Ore.

"I started modeling in the South of France, where I grew up, and I would go to Paris to do jobs. But none of the modeling agencies in Paris wanted to take me. I just kept hearing, ‘This is Paris; black girls don’t work here.’ France is very racist, you don’t see a lot of powerful black people in France—it’s starting but it’s slow-moving. So I went to New York when I turned 18 on the advice of my modeling scout. When I got here, I got signed and told my agency, ‘I want Vogue’—I wanted the fashion jobs. I knew what I wanted and I asked for it! A lot of models don’t say anything; they just let people take care of them. I’m not like that. My agency kept saying, ‘Yeah, but you’re black and you’re short,’ since I’m 5’ 9 ½”, which, in fashion, is small. But my mom always told me that when you want something, you have to go get it. So I did! I’m 23 no

You hear things like, ‘We already have Jourdan [Dunn], one black girl is enough.’ I’m getting good work, I’m happy, but I want to see more black girls.
I’ve always loved makeup. When I was 16, I got a job at one of the French versions of Sephora, and I was so into it—beauty, nails, everything. I wasn’t allowed to wear makeup at home, but I was counseling all of these people on what to do! And now I really enjoy getting ready. I put the music on, the whole thing. Don’t even talk to me until I’m finished getting ready, because I won’t respond. [Laughs] I know so much about makeup now because I asked a lot of questions on jobs. I love Tom Pecheux and Pat McGrath, she does my makeup so well.

Charlize has already convinced Sean to make some big lifestyle changes, as he admitted during his Help Haiti Home fundraiser that a "strong woman who happens to be from South Africa" had convinced him to turn 65 of his guns into an art sculpture to be auctioned off for charity.

Coca Cola’s entry into the Super Bowl ad campaign had a message that was, as it were, Coke Classic: it celebrated the many kinds, colors, lifestyles and origins of Americans who are nonetheless one. Over a scene of these many Americans, it played a patriotic song: not the National Anthem, but the more accessible, singable “America the Beautiful.” It showed us a panoply of American faces, young, old, brown, white, straight, gay (it included what are said to be the first gay parents depicted in a Super Bowl ad), in cowboy hats and hijabs, playing, eating, and exploring all-American vistas.

lol at emmett's internet gf. they really are dragging this bay/emmett thing out as long as possible. everyone knows they're going to end up together.
She may be approaching her 81st birthday but Joan Collins is showing no signs of slowing down on and off screen as she appeared on Loose Women on Monday, to talk about her love life and promote her new one-woman show, One Night With Joan.
The 80-year-old actress looked much younger than her years as she sported a turquoise patterned dress on the ITV daytime show, and joked her husband Percy Gibson, who is 32 years her junior, is keeping her feeling young.
When asked by show anchor Kaye Adams what are the top three most important things in her relationship with Percy, she replied 'Sex, sex, sex.'
Joan's comments prompted laughter from the panel and studio audience and she had them chuckling again by playing down the age gap between her and fifth husband Percy.
She quipped: 'When people ask me about age difference I say, "If he dies, he dies." '
Shortly before they began the raunchy conversation, Kaye told Joan: 'We are going to talk sex after the break. Are you up for that?'
Joan then quipped: 'What's that, talk or do?'
The happy couple are gearing up to celebrate their 12th wedding anniversary next week and Joan recalled the time she met Percy, who directs her new one-woman show at the Leicester Square Theatre.
Speaking to Kaye and panellists Coleen Nolan, Nadia Sawalha and Jamelia on the show, she explained: 'In April we met 14 years ago, we were working together on a play in San Francisco that I was doing with George Hamilton. We all just got to know each other very well.
Vampire Weekend began 2014 by almost getting immolated. On stage at the Falls festival at Lorne in Victoria, as the New Year’s Eve midnight countdown began, they launched into the frantic A-Punk. An audience member threw a flare towards the stage – it missed but lodged in the sound desk.
“Our monitors got fucked up, but we kept playing,” says frontman Ezra Koenig from the safety of a Sydney hotel lobby a couple of weeks later. “We eyed it warily and then eventually somebody grabbed it and stuffed it in some water,” adds Chris Tomson, the band’s drummer.
It would have been a spectacular rock death. “True, not a bad way to die,” says Koenig. “A brief taste of 2014 before perishing.”
If Vampire Weekend had gone out, it would have been on a high. Last week, their third album, Modern Vampires of the City, won a Grammy for best alternative music album (Koenig’s entire speech: “Thanks a lot”), having ended the year in the upper echelons of all the critics’ polls. Their Australian dates saw them heading towards the final stages of a triumphant world tour.
Their Sydney performance proves that they have managed to pull off the trick of making brainy records that you can mosh to. Unbelievers, a tightly condensed lyric about being an atheist but still searching for meaning and grace, provokes a particularly joyous response from a noticeably young audience. “In some ways this record is more mature, maybe a little darker, so the fact that our music still speaks to teenagers is a good feeling,” says Koenig.

One Direction have been predicted to become the most successful band in the world with earnings of a billion dollars a year.
It is estimated the band will earn the record £611million amount during their upcoming Where We Are tour.

A spokesman for the band told the Daily Star: ‘It would be amazing for 1D to climb to the very top of the tour league so early in their career.
‘That would be a phenomenal testament to the loyalty and support of their fans.’

Actress Keira Knightley has long denied rumors she's anorexic, but revealed she has a family history of anorexia.
“I’ve got a lot of experience with anorexia," Knightley told Express Feb. 2. "My grandmother and my great-grandmother suffered from it and I had a lot of friends at school who suffered from it, so I don’t think it’s anything to be taken lightly.”
Over the years, numerous media reports have speculated that the willowy 5-foot-7 Keira is suffering from an eating disorder, but she has insisted her fat-free figure is due to good genes, a fast metabolism, and an active lifestyle.
“The very thought of a diet makes me want chips and ice cream, and I just hate going to the gym,” said Knightley, 28. “The most exercise I get is turning on the TV.”

Call her Bouncé ... because Queen B advertised more breast last night than Popeyes.
Beyoncé was showing off the girls at Hennessy's Super Bowl afterparty in NYC, wearing a v-neck t-shirt that was so deep it was poetic. She and the twins got their groove on while Nas and Kelly Rowland performed on stage.
Proud husband Jay Z was there too ... but we all know what the real attraction was.
Beyonce's boobs: easily the most exciting thing that happened in New York last night.
With Bruno Mars' epic Super Bowl XLVIII halftime show now in the books, it's officially time to start speculating about next year's big game, and which artist will be the one to take center field at the University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Arizona on Feb. 1, 2015.
After Bruno broke up the diva streak started by Madonna and Beyonce at the halftime show, the Super Bowl might return with another female superstar. Perhaps Taylor Swift finally gets her shot after commanding stadiums on her own, or Lady Gaga cranks up the volume in Arizona? Maybe hip-hop finally gets its due with Jay Z, or Kanye "Yeezus" West? Could Bon Jovi or the Foo Fighters reinstate the rock show at the Super Bowl? And how about a 12-minute rave orchestrated by those Daft Punk robots?
Billboard offers up 15 suggestions for next year's Super Bowl halftime extravaganza. Vote for your favorite candidate at the bottom of the page, or make your case for an unnamed artist with a write-in vote!
The rest (and to vote for your fav) at the source.
I finally stopped being lazy and made my first post y'all.
