New 'Secret' app bring anonymous social sharing to iOS


Remember the social networking, secret-sharing app, Whisper, which was originally based on the PostSecret model? Well, the iTunes App Store now has a new secret sharing app, called Secret.
The new app, which was released on Thursday on the iTunes store, is meant to help one share what one is thinking and feeling with friends anonymously. One can write anything that is on one's mind, free of judgement.

The app was created by former employees of Square and Google, David Byttow and Chrys Bader. The basic idea of the app is to allow users to anonymously share secrets with members within their social circles. There are no names, no profiles involved and people can as the official website says, be themselves. "Basically, every secret should stand on the merit of its own idea. It would be nice, for once, to have a normalising platform," said Byttow recently in an interview.

Netizens Criticize Gwen Stefani For Calling Herself "Chunky" In Older Photo

In 1983, Gwen Stefani was just another Sting superfan with a treasured autograph and photo to match. Thirty-one years later, she's got superfans of her own, and some of them weren't too pleased when she tweeted a photo of her first meeting with the singer. Blame the accompanying caption: “Chunky me 1983. Getting @officialsting autograph backstage.” The tweet sent an unintended message to her followers: At 44, Gwen Stefani still thinks she was overweight as a teenager, even though she very clearly wasn't. Cue Twitter outrage.

If Stefani—indisputable rock star who was once voted as having the “most inspirational mid-riff,” accomplished business woman, and mother of two gorgeous boys with one on the way—is still cringing over her perceived baby fat from when she was 14, well, that bums us out. And unfortunately, she joins an ongoing list of celebrities who engage in self-body bashing.

I think we're reaching a weird impasse where celebs can't even have opinions about their own bodies.  Gwen didn't call herself "obese" or even "overweight".  Would the outrage be the same if she called herself "stocky"?

OOP! - Keyshia Cole Hit with $162,000 Tax Lien, IRS Threatens to Seize Property

Keyshia Cole might want to think about hiring a new accountant because the singer was just hit with a hefty bill from Uncle Sam, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

According to a lien filed in Georgia on November 25, last year, the federal government claims Cole failed to pay taxes in 2009 – and owes a total of $162,158.93 to the IRS!

Read The Court Documents

In 2009, Cole embarked on her very first headlining tour, A Different Me Tour, that featured opening acts TLC, Lil Kim and The-Dream, but the government appears the 32-year-old signer still hasn’t paid taxes on that profitable year.

The IRS notes on the lien that they will seize her property if she doesn’t pay off the debt.

“We have made a demand for payment of this liability, but it remains unpaid,” the documents state.

“Therefore, there is a lien in favor of the United States on all property and rights to property belonging to this taxpayer for the amount of the taxes and additional penalties, interest and costs that may accrue.”

Cole, 32, is just the latest in a string of celebrities who have fallen afoul of the IRS.

As RadarOnline.com previously reported singer Lauryn Hill served three months in prison for not paying federal taxes on the $1.8 million she earned between 2005 and 2007.

Real Housewives of New Jersey star Jacqueline Laurita is another celeb whose wallet took a hit from the government: After being slapped with a $338,337 lien in early 2013 and facing home foreclosure later that year, the reality star rang in 2014 with yet another pending request from the IRS for $85,127 in unpaid taxes.

Hillary Clinton blitzes Fox News in her Super Bowl tweet

Hillary Rodham Clinton sent out a tweet during the Super Bowl, jokingly blasting Fox for what appears to be related to the network's coverage of the former secretary of State.

Using football terminology, Clinton said, "It's so much more fun to watch FOX when it's someone else being blitzed & sacked!"

At first glance it was unclear as to the intention of Clinton's tweet. But, Clinton's press secretary Nick Merrill clarified in an e-mail that it was indeed a joke. "It was good-natured, light-hearted, and self-deprecating," Merrill said.

General Hospital: Head Writer Wants James Franco Back

General Hospital fans: head writer Ron Carlivati wants James Franco to return to the show one more time. Franco made several appearances over the last three years as a crazy artist named Franco. He raped, pillaged, and terrorized the already put upon populace of Port Charles.

Then last year Carlivati brought the Franco character back played by someone else, Roger Howarth. He was absolved of his many crimes after it was discovered he had a brain tumor. This is always a good out for soap characters. If only it worked in real life!

At this past weekend’s Writers Guild Awards, Carlivati– who helped save “General Hospital” from cancellation– told me he wants the real Franco to make one more return. I think the idea is that the multi-tasking actor would play himself, and I guess confront the fictitious Franco. Anyway, the soap is now the hip show that Franco wanted it to be when he was on it. He’d do well to get closure. And also, now “GH” has great ratings.

A Taylor Swift superfan storms the stage for the chance to meet the American singer on RED tour

A Taylor Swift superfan had to be bundled away by security after storming the stage during the singer's concert at the O2 Arena.

The 24-year-old singer kicked off her European leg of her RED tour in London, and had just performed her hit song, We Are Never Getting Back Together' when the man leapt onto the stage.

He ran up a flight of steps towards the bemused singer, dressed as a circus ringmaster, and appeared to push something into her hand before running back toward the audience.


Fan club: A fan stormed the stage just for the chance to meet Taylor

Security men managed to grab the young fan as he headed back to his seat.

Members of the audience thought the man was a dancer until he tripped running up the stairs.

The incident came at the end of Saturday's performance, on what was the first of Swift's five nights at the O2.

Eyewitness Andrew Simpson, 49, from Portsmouth said: 'It was an extraordinary breach of security. I couldn't quite believe what I was seeing.

SNL Star Victoria Jackson Running For Office


Former "Saturday Night Live" cast member Victoria Jackson has filed to run as an independent candidate for a seat on a county commission outside Nashville, Tenn.

Jackson, who calls herself a tea party conservative, moved to Thompson Station in Williamson County last year. She told The Tennessean she filed as an independent because she's "very disappointed with the Republican Party (because they're too liberal)."

As long as Jackson meets the candidate qualifying requirements by the Feb. 20 deadline, her name will appear on the election ballot Aug. 7.
She would run against the Republican nominee, who will be chosen May 6.

In honor of Victoria Jackson, I've compiled a list of her funniest moments (hint: they have nothing to do with SNL).

This is a Mary Lambert Post.

"I'm not crying on Sundays," Mary Lambert assures herself on the song that got her to the Grammys. But this Sunday was different. This Sunday was better.

Singing the heart-lifting chorus to Macklemore's "Same Love," which was nominated for Best Song, Lambert made her Grammy debut on Jan. 26.

That's when she lost it. But these weren't tears of sadness or shame. These were tears of joy. Tears of being inspired and moved and all those things you feel when you share the stage with gay couples who are finally able to get married, a monumental celebration that took place at the awards show, with Queen Latifah officiating.

Emotions ran high that night, but Lambert, 24, had a new friend nearby - a new friend by the name of Madonna. And the icon didn't just sing Lambert's words, but, like something out of a fever dream, swooped in and wiped away her tears.

Lambert, who just released her own solo EP called "Welcome to the Age of My Body," was still emotional when she spoke about that unforgettable night.

​The Internet Digs Up Woody Allen's Creepy Child-Loving Past

Woody Allen's lawyers and friends are quick to argue that the latest round of child abuse accusations against the actor are perfectly timed to destroy what should have been a fruitful awards season. But the real truth is that these allegations, these stories, and Allen's history with young women have been a matter of public record for at least 20 years.

Joe Coscarelli at The Daily Intelligencer undertook the unenviable task of rounding up a history of allegations against the actor as well as his inappropriate behavior with—and references to—young women. Here is a sampling of what he found.

Flea Explains Why the Red Hot Chili Peppers Had To Pre-record Their Super Bowl Performance

Dear everybody,

When we were asked by the NFL and Bruno to play our song Give It Away at the Super Bowl, it was made clear to us that the vocals would be live, but the bass, drums, and guitar would be pre-recorded. I understand the NFL's stance on this, given they only have a few minutes to set up the stage, there a zillion things that could go wrong and ruin the sound for the folks watching in the stadium and the t.v. viewers. There was not any room for argument on this, the NFL does not want to risk their show being botched by bad sound, period.

The Red Hot Chili Peppers stance on any sort of miming has been that we will absolutely not do it. The last time we did it (or tried to) was in the late 80's, we were thrown off of 'The Top Of the Pops' television program in the U.K. during rehearsals because we refused to mime properly, I played bass with my shoe, John played guitar atop Anthony's shoulders, and we basically had a wrestling match onstage, making a mockery of the idea that it was a real live performance.

Boobriah strikes in the tropics!

Mariah Carey took to Instagram to moan about her bad hair on Monday. Sharing a picture of herself with her curly locks piled on top of her head in an island paradise, she wrote: "Working in my most favorite environment clearly having a bad hair day. Haaaaaa (sic)."

However, considering the photograph showed her wearing nothing but a plunging skimpy bikini, sarong and heels, it is doubtful anyone was paying much attention to her hair. The mother-of-two showed off her trim figure as she posed with her hand in her hair and staring off into the distance. And her impressive cleavage was the main focus as her bikini top appeared to be a size too small. It's not clear if this was a new picture or a throwback photograph posted by Mariah.

Woody Allen Feels 'Overwhelming Sadness' at False Allegations, Says Attorney

Woody Allen's attorney forcefully denied decades-old molestation allegations against the director Tuesday, but refused to blame Dylan Farrow for making them – saying she was coached as a child by her mother, Mia Farrow, to believe she had been sexually abused.

"His reaction is one of overwhelming sadness because of what has happened to Dylan," Elkan Abramowitz told NBC's Today show when asked how Allen, 78, reacted to his onetime adopted daughter's open letter in The New York Times claiming he abused her.

"She was a pawn in a huge fight between him and Mia Farrow years ago, and the idea that she was molested was implanted in her by her mother," Abramowitz said. "That memory is never going to go away. So the fact that she says this now, that it happened 20 years ago, is totally understandable."

Asked why a grown woman would lie – Dylan is now 28, married and living in Florida under a different name – Abramowitz replied: "In my view, she's not lying. I think she truly believes this happened. That's what the vice of this is. When you implant a story in a fragile 7-year-old's mind, it stays there forever. It never goes away."

Abramowitz pointed to the investigation in the early '90s by Yale-New Haven Hospital that concluded no sexual abuse had taken place. He also said the custody judge who barred Allen from any visitation with Dylan after Allen and Farrow's split was "wrong" and "favored Mia Farrow for a variety of reasons."

Asked if Allen wants to press legal charges himself, Abramowitz replied: "Woody Allen is not interested in suing anybody for defamation. He was determined not to have molested his daughter 20 years ago. The case is over. There is no case. The fact that it is being brought up now is suspect. The timing is suspect."

Pressed on that last statement, Abramowitz said of the allegations and their timing: "I think that it's a continuation of Mia Farrow's desire to hurt Woody Allen. And Woody Allen is now riding fairly high. He got the Golden Globe Award for lifetime achievement, which he totally deserved. And I believe it revived the anger that she has toward him."

'The Flash' Casts Iris West

Candice Patton (likely best known for her appearance on The Game) has joined Jesse L. Martin in The CW's Flash pilot, which stars Grant Gustin as Barry Allen aka The Flash, the title character.

Patton has signed up to play Iris West, daughter of Detective West (Jesse L. Martin's character), a respectable, blue-collar cop and surrogate father to Barry Allen/The Flash. Iris West is also Allen's best friend.

Based on my research, in the comics, the character West is white, and is the father of Barry's/The Flash's eventual wife, Iris West, who is also white.
But character breakdowns for both Detective West and Iris West, which circulated the web last month, indicate that they will be African American (obviously, based on this casting), and give us a bit more background on each:

Who Wants to Remember Bill Cosby's Multiple Sex-Assault Accusations?

The thing about Dylan Farrow's open letter accusing her father, Woody Allen, of sexual abuse is: There was not much really new about it. It was new that Dylan Farrow herself was signing her name to the accusations, but Vanity Fair had covered the case, in grim detail, more than two decades ago.

So the current crisis over how people are supposed to feel about Woody Allen is on some level odd. Woody Allen's status as an accused child molester has been a matter of public record since before Manhattan Murder Mystery came out. Anyone who didn't think about it before now had chosen not to think about it.

Not thinking about it is a popular and powerful choice. Which brings up another beloved American funnyman, Bill Cosby. Who doesn't love Bill Cosby? I grew up watching Fat Albert and eating Jell-O Pudding Pops, which is a cliché, but Bill Cosby is the creator of some of our most warming and affirming clichés. He is charming and iconic, one of the most culturally important and successful comedians ever, an elder statesman of the entertainment industry.

He's also someone who has been accused by multiple women of drugging them and sexually assaulting them. Here is one of his accusers, describing an incident:

Well, there were a number of people at the table, friends of his, and he said to me, yes, you do seem ill, you're slightly feverish, would you like to have some Contact? You know, the cold medicine. And I thought, why not, can't hurt. So he went into some sort of office area at the back of the restaurant and he produced two capsules in his hand. I thought nothing of it and I took the capsules. In about, I don't know, 20 to 30 minutes I felt great and then about 10 minutes after that I was almost literally face down on the table of this restaurant...

He said, "Oh my, you must be more ill then we believed. I totally lost motor control; I was almost unable to hold my head up. I was very, very, very stoned. He took me into my apartment and then very helpfully and nicely was prepared to take off my clothes and help me into bed and pet me, and that's how the actual assault began.

According to the Daily Star, One Direction will debut a new cafe this Tuesday in Shibuya, Japan.

Despite the looming grand opening, we’ve yet to find official word on the restaurant’s name or exact location, but a source likens the venture to “the lads' version of Planet Hollywood.”

So what can Directioners expect from this little place of heaven?

Oh, you know, just some themed menu items, 1D tunes around the clock, and oodles of memorabilia and merchandising — we’re hoping for the classic 90s-style leather jackets, obviously.

If all goes well in Shibuya, One Direction's crew will reportedly look to London next, followed closely by international hubs such as New York, Berlin, and Paris. Ooh la la!

Vanity Fair editor likens Gwyneth Paltrow to Kim Jong-un in odd PR attempt

Vanity Fair editor Graydon Carter has revealed how Hollywood star Gwyneth Paltrow issued a 'Kim Jong-un'-style demand to friends in a desperate attempt to ban them from talking to the magazine.

The longtime editor of Vanity Fair has broken his silence after months of speculation over what was reportedly set to be an 'epic takedown' of the divisive star.

And he reveals how the 'brouhaha' led to Gwyneth, 41, phoning him in October and asking how to get the 'haters' on her side - to which he joked 'put on 15 pounds'.

Writing in the March issue of Vanity Fair, Mr Carter insists the original story was simply borne out of his request that he wanted a piece on the Shakespeare in Love star after noticing 'that people tend to have passionate opinions on the actress'.

This soon took a turn as mom-of-two Gwyneth was prompted into action worthy of the North Korean despot, he says.

'What began so innocently quickly took a turn, however', he admits in his monthly Editor's Letter in the new issue, 'Once the story was assigned, the writer reached out to Paltrow’s representatives and friends, and Paltrow sent the now-infamous email to her show-business pals.

'She asked that they not speak to Vanity Fair about her, or about anything else ever again. Ever. Never.

'Kim Jong-un couldn’t have issued a more blanket demand.'

As soon as this edict was made public, all hell broke lose and led to a frenzy of speculation over just what would be in the article - including stories over the state of the Oscar winner's marriage to Coldplay frontman Chris Martin.

What would Vanderpump Rules look like without puppet-master Stassi Schroeder pulling the strings, making the wait staff of SUR dance like sexy little monkeys at her every whim?

Stassi Quitting ‘Vanderpump Rules’?

During a recent visit to our Times Square office, Ms. Schroeder revealed that she now calls the Big Apple “home,” as she’s moved on — and moved in — with boyfriend Patrick Meagher.

“I just realized that my life was just so toxic,” Stassi told us. “Like, everything was so toxic. No one was a good friend, besides Katie, obviously. I just needed to take myself out of that environment. I can’t be a waitress forever. Come on, eventually we were all going to start moving on.”

Honestly, there’s a lot of important information in the interview, including why Stassi probably won’t be attending Scheana Marie‘s wedding, so give it a look. (video at the source)

Petition To Replace Michael Vick As Raleigh Keynote Speaker


Michael Vick is in the news again, but this time it is because his scheduled appearance at a North Carolina “Evening of Champions” is being protested by thousands in a petition on Change.org. Vick is scheduled as a guest speaker, and the Greater Raleigh Chamber of Commerce’s president and CEO, Harvey Schmitt, says that although the evening is not to recognize the controversial athlete, he does have an interesting story of personal redemption that is worth hearing.

In 2009, Vick was released after serving 19 months for his personal involvement in a violent dog fighting ring, and his road to redemption has been a rocky one ever since. Animal advocates along with over 66,000 other citizens are disappointed in the choice to bring Vick in as a keynote speaker after his sordid past, claiming that having him featured as a role model for impressionable youth at an event that celebrates sportsmanship and integrity is inappropriate and disheartening.

Everyone loves a comeback story, but will Vick ever be able to redeem himself in the public eye and in the hearts of animal advocates everywhere for his past transgressions? There is no doubt that the professional football player is polarizing. Let’s hope that personal redemption is possible and that Vick’s past experiences will create some future good.

Actor and MMA star Jason David Frank has once again challenged CM Punk to step inside the octagon with him. He posted the following on Instagram earlier today:

"So now that CM punk is out of his contracts and wants to do MMA. Why not me? He already said he fight me. I got this on video from a fan. Come on CM punk we could make this a awesome fight. Plus his weight is way down. This is a recent pic. I'll make any weight to make this happen!!"

This is definitely not the first time the original Green Ranger has thrown down a challenge to the Second City Saint. It all stems from Frank mentioning he would like to fight Punk, and Punk accepting the challenge loosely at a Comic Con event in 2013.


I hope it happens so that I can see CM Punk put the GTS on him tbh

Did Solange Just Instagram Photos From Her 'Cosmopolitan' Shoot?

On a recent Instagram spree under her new music label’s account, Saint Heron, Solange Knowles posted some very sunny pictures of her wearing her signature bright colors and showing off her flair for pattern mixing. But after a little sleuthing, it appears that these looks could be from a photoshoot with Cosmopolitan for their March 2014 issue, which would make total sense. Solange has always had a knack for springtime style. In fact, her wardrobe is like a how-to guide for wearing pastels without looking like a bag of Easter M&Ms. Those who suffer from all-black wardrobes and a fear of bold colors (*achem* what has two thumbs?), take note!

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Louis Gossett Jr., Cuba Gooding Jr., Aunjanue Ellis and Lyriq Ben are set to star in The Book of Negroes miniseries from Conquering Lion Pictures, Out of Africa Entertainment and Entertainment One (eOne) Television.

The dramatic miniseries is an adaptation of The Book of Negroes, based on the Commonwealth Writers’ Prize-winning novel by Lawrence Hill (published in the U.S., Australia and New Zealand as Someone Knows My Name). Principal photography begins this week in South Africa and continues in Nova Scotia this spring. The show is slated to air on CBC in Canada and BET Networks in the U.S.

The Book of Negroes is a deeply inspirational, triumphant story that needs to be told, and we are proud to be part of a project that has the ability and pedigree to attract a cast as exceptional as Lou, Cuba, Aunjanue, Lyriq, Ben, Allan and Jane,” said Carrie Stein, the executive VP of global production at eOne Television.

Loretha Jones, the president of original programming at BET Networks, added, “We are thrilled to join forces with the CBC, eOne and the talented cast and creative team for this special project. Aminata and her journey symbolize the indomitable spirit of so many of our ancestors who not only survived the horrible institution of slavery, but also prevailed under trying circumstances. It is that legacy that we hope will continue to inspire our young people today.”


Mia Farrow -- Woody Molested Dylan ... And He Knows It

Woody Allen and his lawyer may be painting Mia Farrow out to be a spiteful bitch for alleging Woody molested her daughter ... but Mia is on tape explaining how Dylan freely opened up about the sexual attack and she says Woody knows in his heart exactly what he did.

Farrow explains ... when Dylan started opening up about the abuse she spontaneously grabbed a camera and videotaped it.

And ... Farrow explains how she told Dylan that her dad was now her sister's "boyfriend."

Tom Hiddleston to be the Star in the Reasonably Priced Car on BBC Top Gear

The series continues with a jam-packed show featuring Italian sports cars, military manoeuvres and a trip to Belgium.

Richard Hammond is on the shores of Lake Como testing the exciting new Alfa Romeo 4C, a mid-engined machine from one of the world's most beloved sports car makers. Hammond's enjoyment of the super-lightweight, 237 horsepower beauty is brought to an abrupt halt by the arrival of Jeremy Clarkson on a quad bike, demanding a race to the far end of the vast lake. Unfortunately for Hammond, Clarkson's quad bike is not entirely as it first seems.

Elsewhere in the programme, Clarkson is in the genteel surroundings of Bruge and at the rather less sedate Spa Grand Prix track in order to test a thrilling new breed of hybrid hypercar: the stunning, 904 horsepower McLaren P1.

Meanwhile, James May is at the vast Camp Bastion in Afghanistan looking at the incredible efforts behind the army's largest vehicle redeployment since the Second World War.

Actor Tom Hiddleston, star of Thor, The Avengers and War Horse, tries his hand
out on the track as the Star in the Reasonably Priced Car.
His appearance is set to take place in the second part of Series 21, which
will be broadcast in the UK on February 9 2014 on BBC Two .

Top Gear Series 21 started last Sunday , on BBC Two.

McDonald's Canada explains how Chicken McNuggets are made, no Pink Goop in sight

McNuggets have gotten a bad rap in recent years, in large part due to a viral photo of "pink goop" or "pink slime" purported to be the main ingredient in the McDonald's product.

The folks at McDonald's Canada created a video intended to refute the claims. The video begins with McDonald's Canada Supply Chain Manager Nicoletta Stefou saying her employer gets the question a lot.

"We don't know what it is or where it came from, but it has nothing to do with our Chicken McNuggets," Stefou says of the "goop," standing in Cargill Limited's food processing plant in London, Ontario.

In February 2012, McDonald's announced that, as of 2011, it was no longer using ammonium hydroxide in the production of its hamburgers.

Canadian band Skinny Puppy invoices U.S. Government after learning their music was used to torture Guantanamo detainees


By now we’re all familiar with the U.S. government’s practice of using heavy metal to torture detainees. We’ve all seen “Zero Dark Thirty” and “Homeland”—we get the drill. Usually metal music is used for its general unpleasantness. It’s impossible to sleep through and just all-around unnerving.

Except Canadian band Skinny Puppy had no idea their music was being used in the service of the U.S. military.

Laura Prepon Returning for "Most" of Orange Is the New Black's Second Season

Looks like Alex Vause will be behind bars for a little while longer. Though previous reports claimed that Laura Prepon's Orange Is the New Black character would be in just four episodes of the Netflix series when the show returns later this year, creator Jenji Kohan hinted to Us Weekly that her presence would be felt for "most" of season two.

"Yes, yes, she is coming back," Kohan told Us of the former That '70 Show actress at the Writers Guild Awards on Saturday, Feb. 1. "Not the whole season, but...you'll see her for most of it."

Based on Piper Kerman's memoir and adapted by Weeds mastermind Kohan, OITNB stars Taylor Schilling as a young, bisexual woman who is sent to prison for carrying drug money for her ex-girlfriend, Alex (Prepon). The show was renewed for a second season last June, weeks before it even premiered via Netflix.


Ryan Phillippe to Star in ABC Drama ‘Secrets & Lies’

Ryan Phillippe is in final negotiations for the lead role in ABC drama series “Secrets & Lies,” an industry insider told TheWrap.

“Secrets & Lies” follows a family man (Phillippe) who, when he finds the body of a young boy, becomes the main suspect in the murder. Phillippe’s character must solve the crime to exonerate himself and save his name, family and sanity.

The show is based on an upcoming Australian series starring Martin Henderson. ABC’s version will consist of 10 episodes.

Charles McDougall will direct the pilot, from writer/executive producer Barbie Kligman. ABC Studios, Aaron Kaplan’s Kapital Entertainment and Australian-based Hoodlum also exec produce, along with Tracey Robertson and Nathan Mayfield.


Sky Ferreira: "I had second album pressure for my first album"


Sky Ferreira's profile exploded with the release of 'Everything Is Embarrassing' in 2012. After toiling in pop music for years, repeatedly tossed about by major label reps who simultaneously thought they knew best and had no idea what to do with her, it was the no-budget, Grant Singer-shot video which finally announced Ferreira as an artist to the world. Since then, Ferreira's ghostly synth-pop has appeared on the short but sweet Ghost EP, and the musically diverse and emotionally raw album Night Time, My Time.

Ferreira's heightened profile didn't come without additional challenges. The conventionally attractive model had to endure the typical sexist response, struggling to be taken seriously as an artist who is a) a woman, b) on a major label, and c) had been adopted by, and therefore had to contend with, the indie world. That said, if you strip away all the bullshit, what's left is one of 2013's most outstanding records, presenting Ferreira as a person of fierce independence who's nevertheless unafraid to seem afraid and unapologetically vulnerable. Night Time, My Time, like its creator, contains multitudes. We talked about tabloid headlines, Miley Cyrus, and the gladiatorial battle of being a woman in pop.

Under the Dome Casts CSI: NY's Eddie Cahill, British Actress in Series Regular Roles

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

Eddie Cahill is returning to the CBS family, but he’ll have to go Under the Dome to do it.

The former CSI: New York star has been cast in a series regular role as the “reclusive” EMT brother-in-law of Dean Norris’s Big Jim.

Cahill’s character Sam will reportedly form a bond with Rachelle Lefevre’s Julia, and it’s worth noting that a recent installment of Ask Ausiello described him as “the crazy drunk who lives alone in the woods.”

Meanwhile, British actress Karla Crome (Hit & Miss, Misfits) will join Cahill as a Season 2 regular in the role of Rebecca, “a teacher in her 30s whom Big Jim beseeches to start back up the school, though not with the noblest of agendas.”

Under the Dome‘s second season will premiere Monday, June 30 at 10/9c, and the opening hour will feature two major deaths.

Justin settles suit w/ former security guard

Los Angeles (CNN) -- Justin Bieber settled a legal dispute with a former bodyguard who had accused the pop star of attacking him backstage at a concert. Moshe Benabou filed a lawsuit in Los Angeles County Superior Court in January 2013 accusing Bieber of hitting him during a "tirade" in October 2012.

"The tirade was apparently triggered by what Justin Bieber perceived as an attempt by Moshe Benabou to keep one member of Mr. Bieber's entourage physically away from Justin Bieber," the lawsuit said. "As part of this tirade, Justin Bieber repeatedly punched Moshe Benabou in the chest and upper body area. Mr. Benabou did not retaliate or attempt to protect himself out of his concerns for Justin Bieber's physical well-being." (lol)

The lawsuit could have gone to trial in Los Angeles later this month if it had not been settled. "The matter has been resolved to the satisfaction of both parties, and the case has been dismissed," Bieber lawyer Howard Weitzman told CNN Monday.

Bieber, 19, was arrested last week in Toronto, accused of assaulting his limousine driver in December.

He also faces charges of drunken driving, resisting arrest and driving on an expired license after being stopped by police in Miami Beach, Florida, last month.

The Los Angeles County district attorney is considering whether to charge Bieber with felony vandalism in the egging of his neighbor's house on January 9, 2014.

Jenelle Moved Out Of State To Live With Nathan After Their First Date

Last week on Teen Mom 2, newly-sober Jenelle Evans finally met her online boyfriend in the flesh for a romantic first date, and much to Jenelle's delight, Nathan Griffith did not turn out to be a serial killer. In fact, this part-time underwear model couldn't have been more understanding and accepting of Jenelle's sordid past, including her struggle with heroin addiction.

So clearly the next logical step is for Jenelle and Nathan to make their love official and move in together.

"I think you should just keep your stuff at my house," Nathan says after Jenelle complains about being "stuck" with at home with her nagging mom Barbara.

"That's fine by me. I think it's a good idea," she replies.

Keep in mind Jenelle is still technically married to estranged husband Courtland Rogers at this point — plus she's newly sober and just had an abortion. And according to her lawyer Dustin Sullivan, she could be facing major jail time if convicted of felony charges for heroin possession. This girl has a lot on her plate right now, not to mention the fact that Nathan lives in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina — about an hour and a half away from son Jace in North Carolina.

Nonetheless, Jenelle accepts Nathan's invitation and prepares to break the news to Babs.

"I think at first she might be concerned because she doesn't know you that well, and she thinks I don't know you that well, and she just doesn't want me getting hurt," Jenelle says. "So at first she might be a little uneasy with it, but I think she'll get over it."

Jenelle and Nathan are still together and expecting a baby boy at the end of June. She gave up custody of son Jace in 2010 and hopes to regain custody this year.

BRAD PITT AND ANGELINA posed nude for a Don Bachardy's portrait ,got frisky while doing so .


Armistead Maupin tells me in his delicious, rich Southern drawl that he’s just had a discussion event with Don Bachardy, the artist and surviving partner of the novelist Christopher Isherwood.
“We talked about the time Angelina Jolie sat for Don during one of her pregnancies,” Maupin says by phone from Los Angeles. “They flew Don to Paris. He drew her, naked, for every one of her trimesters. One day she said, ‘Why don’t we get Brad (Pitt, Jolie’s partner) to sit with me?’ ‘That’s a wonderful idea,’ said Don. And so they both posed nude, and, he said, neither of them could sit still, so frisky did they get with each other.”

would you pose naked? naked and pregnant ? frisky in public?sex tape?

Dwayne Johnson Hints That He's Playing Green Lantern

Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson’s name keeps coming up when you talk about Batman vs. Superman. It all started last November when he tweeted a picture of himself and the Warner Bros. CEO with the caption “we’ll do some big cool things!”. Then late last year, The Rock confirmed that he’ll partner up with Warner Bros./DC Comics in 2014. Batman vs. Superman is the only Warner Bros./DC Comics project that’s scheduled to shoot this year, but did The Rock reveal his role nearly three months ago as well?

The Rock posted a photo with his trainer on Instagram on November 16th, 2013… just a few weeks after his big meeting with Warner Bros. He wrote a caption praising his trainer, and ended it with “#JohnStewartCanStillWhupSupermansAss”.

on the evolution of her albums:
"I'm not trying to shed my skin. I'm trying to be a new version of the person I've been my whole life. That's what's held my fans and me together. For a group of millions, it's odd how close I feel to them."

on choosing not to read certain articles:
"I know when not to read an article. Is it going to help my day? Is it important for my life? If the answer is no, then I just don't click.... I'm careful about getting sucked into the rabbit hole that is the Internet because, as a songwriter, I don't have the option of having thick skin. As a writer you have to be open to everything, and that includes pain, rejection, self-doubt, fear. I deal with that enough on my own. If you look hard enough, you could find somebody on the Internet criticizing every single thing about you. If you're me."

on being a role model:
“I find it relatively easy to keep my clothes on because I don’t really feel like taking them off. It’s not an urge I have. For me “risky” is revealing what really happened in my life through music. Risky is writing confessional songs and telling the true story about a person with enough details so everyone knows who that person is. That’s putting myself out there, maybe even more than taking my shirt off.”

Philip Seymour Hoffman -- Two Alleged Drug Dealers Targeted in Police Raid

New York cops have just made 4 ARRESTS in connection with Philip Seymour Hoffman's death … Law enforcement sources familiar with the situation tell TMZ.

Our sources tell us … police have obtained a search warrant and are currently on scene at a NY apt. We're told police are targeting two individuals who they believe sold PSH heroin.

Sources also tell us … someone involved in the heroin market in NYC contacted police and gave them the names and addresses of two alleged drug dealers who pushed the drug.

We're told the heroin user told cops he buys from the same dealer Hoffman frequented and sometimes saw Hoffman in the dealer's apartment. The informant says Hoffman would buy "bundles" of heroin at a time ... twice a week.

Sources say the informant told cops ... the alleged dealer -- a musician for a famous rapper -- would sometimes run out of his supply and use a secondary dealer, who sold "cheap s**t heroin" that was dangerous. And the informant says ... Hoffman would get the secondary supply.

Undercover NYPD cars are currently on scene. 4 suspects are now in custody.

Courtney Stodden Lands Her Own Reality Show; Dating And Focusing On Her Singing Career Again!

Who's ready for more Courtney Stodden's preaching about how she's an anti-bullying spokesperson and a dresses like a prostitute so others feel embowered?!

The former teen bride has separated from Doug Hutchison, moved out, and is now getting her own solo show to go with it! “She moved into the studio apartment next door to the house she and Doug rented together. But Doug still lives in the main house,” a source dished to Celebuzz. “They’re not divorced yet, so she’ll stay there until they figure out how they want to proceed with things.”

In the meantime, Courtney is busy revitalizing her "career" – and that includes more music! “She has a development deal with World of Wonder Productions,” says a source and is in the "beginning stages" of creating her own reality show. “Courtney’s working on multiple on-camera projects, one of which is her own show. And she’s being pitched to networks." WoW Productions is also behind Million Dollar Listing, Tori & Dean: Inn Love and RuPaul’s Drag Race.

The premise of Courtney's new show could be her moving on and shedding the teen bride image to become her own woman. Which means dating again! Despite Doug being her neighbor – her heartbroken neighbor – she's been spotted around town with talent manager David Weintraub. The two hit up Dan Tana's, a celeb hotspot this week.

It was a blind date – David begged friends to set them up. “It was their first date and it went pretty well. She likes him and he’s been smitten with her, which is why he wanted the set-up. But they were just getting to know each other.” Courtney spent the evening confessing her fame aspirations to him, which include but are not limited to becoming a “less boring Julia Roberts." Errrr…

David asked her out on a second date, so I guess we'll be hearing about that soon! Personally, I hope this show includes Courtney firing her mother as her manager and getting plenty of counseling, along with an antiseptic bath and an extreme makeover.
