One Direction star Niall Horan gets stuck in a lift at Brits bash



Poor Niall Horan.

As if being made to attend your own record label’s Brits bash – probably the music industry equivalent of attending the office Christmas party – wasn’t bad enough, the 1D star got stuck there. Literally.

The 20-year-old singer found himself trapped in a lift for more than four minutes at The Arts Club do, as minders frantically tried to call for help.

Looking increasingly flustered and as if he had claustrophobia, seven other (hot, sweaty, drunk) party-goers were stuck with him.

As Niall started hunting for the panic room, and openly panicking, one reveller got in trouble with his minders after trying to take footage of the nervous star.

We're told: “Security were frantically trying to get the lift working again but the emergency alarm was down and it simply wouldn’t budge.

“Everyone was trapped and getting increasingly hot and bothered.

“Once it was eventually moving again, the management were very apologetic.

“The lift was briefly closed down while repairs were made.”

Viggo Mortensen in talks to star in Captain Fantastic

 photo viggo2_zps378a5a5f.jpg

Though it appears the long string of casting rumours for Fantastic Four may finally be behind us, Viggo Mortensen will not be popping up in that film (we reserve the right to alter this line if he does, for some reason show). Instead, he’s signed on to an altogether different sort of story in Captain Fantastic.

Actor-turned-writer/director Matt Ross is behind the indie film, which boasts a leading role that would appear well suited to Mortensen’s ease in the wilderness. Captain Fantastic follows what happens when an idealistic father has to end a decade of living off the grid with his six kids in the forests of America’s Pacific Northwest and assimilate the family back into society. It sounds a little like an updated version of 1986 Harrison Ford drama The Mosquito Coast, though with fewer actual mosquitos.

Ross appears delighted with his leading man score: ”Viggo Mortensen’s dedication to his craft and to the world of the story he’s telling have been an inspiration to me for years,” he tells Deadline. “There is a depth to his art that I greatly admire. Any film he’s in is a film I want to see. He’s one of the greats. Getting to collaborate with him on Captain Fantastic is quite literally the best thing that’s happened to me since my wife asked me to marry her.” He’s off into the woods to start shooting this summer. We're keeping our fingers crossed that Mortensen becomes the living embodiment of the paraphrased maxim, “give a cast a fish, and they eat for a day. Have Viggo Mortensen teach them to fish, and you really save on craft services.”

Jennifer Garner Reveals Batsuit Is A 'Total Reinvention'; Film Delayed Due To Production Turmoil?

The “Batman vs. Superman” production team has pushed back the release of the film, but the Caped Crusader’s wife is dishing the details about the new Batsuit.

In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Ben Affleck’s leading lady Jennifer Garner talked about her man’s superhero garb. The interviewer asked if Garner would like to Affleck to come home wearing the suit, to which the actress responded:

“I don’t think I could get him out of the suit, so ‘no,’ I’ll probably go to set and look from afar.”

However, Garner is impressed with the revamp of the Batsuit and assured fans it is nothing like they had ever seen before.

“I’ve seen the suit. The suit is unbelievably cool. It’s a total reinvention. It looks great,” Garner told




The upcoming “Man of Steel” sequel featuring Affleck as Batman, Gal Gadot as Wonder Woman and Henry Cavill reprising his role of Superman will hit theaters on May 6, 2016.

“Batman vs. Superman” was originally scheduled for a July 17, 2015 release date, but Warner. Bros. recently announced the film would be delayed due to "the complex visual nature of the story" needing more time to develop.

Forbes reports a delay isn’t a good sign for the film, as it might be an indicator of turmoil n the production team.

“One thing I’d like to touch on is the idea that a 10-month delay is in-itself a sign of production turmoil and trouble,” according to Forbes. “The film may in fact be going through a complete top-down revamp. It may in fact be using every moment of that ten month delay to whip the project into workable shape. But the fact that it’s been delayed 10 months is irrelevant to this notion. Due to the release calendar, even a delay of a couple weeks would have meant a delay of at least ten months.”


Do you think there is trouble on the “Batman vs. Superman” movie set?

JGL, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen & Others Read "Pulp Fiction"


The Film Independent at LACMA Live Read presented Quentin Tarantino’s “Pulp Fiction” for the fifth installment of Jason Reitman’s Live Read series.

Guest director Evan Goldberg, co-writer of “This Is the End,” led the live read with a surprise cast featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Wendell Pierce, Rebecca Romijn, Jordan Peele, Lizzy Caplan, Nick Kroll and Michael Chiklis.

The 600 seats were completely filled inside LACMA’s Bing Theater with tons of people on standby hoping to grab a straggling seat. No phones or recordings were allowed in the theater.

Caplan channeled her best Honey Bunny in the opening scene at the diner, with Hill as Pumpkin, sans London accent. “Any of you fucking pricks move, and I’ll execute every motherfucking last one of ya!” screamed Caplan, just as Amanda Plummer did in the film. The audience broke out in cheers.

From then, the live read really took off. Pierce played gangster Marsellus Wallace and Rogen took the role as Lance, Vincent Vega’s drug dealer.

16 Things to Know from Our VERONICA MARS Movie Set Visit Plus Interviews (Spoilers Ahead)



When Veronica Mars creator Rob Thomas and star Kristen Bell announced a Kickstarter to raise funds for a possible Veronica Mars movie last March, it went from possibility to reality within hours, easily reaching its $2 million goal based mainly on fan power. By the end of the Kickstarter window, they had raised over $5 million for the project, and Warner Bros. was on board to distribute. The ravenous Marshmallows, diehard fans of the show, had finally won, and were going to see the beloved cult classic finally get an amazing new chapter.
As the cast started to regroup and a script was crafted, the movie got underway last summer, and Collider was invited to visit the Los Angeles set. As a huge, fluffy Marshmallow myself, it was a dream come to true to be able to go to the set and meet some of the cast and crew, all while inwardly screaming. During my time on set visiting, I was able to see several of the reunion scenes being filmed, get opinions from the cast and Thomas about how the shoot was going so far, and really dive into what could possibly be going on for Veronica next.

Second leg of Mrs Carter Show kicks off in Glasgow, receives ***FLAWLESS reviews


Pictured above: Beyonce performing 'Partition'

Some critics said that Beyonce’s performance at the Brit Awards on Wednesday night was boring.

It’s true that, next to her frequently naked rivals, Beyonce calmly belting out a sultry ballad in a floor-length sequinned gown seems positively chaste.

It’s a strange pop landscape we live in, where a woman who invented the word “bootylicious” basically looks like a nun compared to some of her contemporaries.

But as she showed on stage at the Glasgow SSE Hydro, Beyonce’s idea of megastar sex appeal is dry ice, silhouettes and suggestion, not twerking dwarves.

Collapse )


Pictured above: Beyonce performing '***Flawless'

Beyonce doesn't do things by halves.

So the first night of the second UK leg of her Mrs Carter tour in Glasgow's brand new SSE Hydro arena was never going to be a quiet affair.

Just 24 hours after her stunning Brits performance, trouper Bey was ready to do it all again, and some.

It was a special night to see the songstress as she performed tracks from her new album - Beyonce - for the first time ever.

Collapse )


Pictured above: Beyonce performing '***Flawless'

“A little sweat never hurt nobody,” hollers Beyonce Knowles during her track Get Me Bodied. It's barely a quarter of the way through this frankly mighty first UK date of her Mrs Carter world tour, and surely all of the twelve thousand plus in attendance could do little but agree. The first time the former Destiny's Child played in Scotland was eleven years ago in a shopping mall come concert hall near Glasgow Airport, and her pouting, serious-faced procession of ballads flattered to deceive. By contrast this near two-hour epic is a ferocious distillation of musical styles old and new and a stunning declaration of intent that Knowles intends to be recognised as the defining pop artist of her era. It was, at the very least, one of the hardest working shows likely to be witnessed on a stage this year, and with barely a drop of minutely-choreographed sweat to be seen.

DJ Holiday "Miley" Feat. Wiz Khalifa & Waka Flocka (Official Music Video)



Above is the official music video for "Miley". Atlanta's very own DJ Holiday teamed up with rappers Waka Flocka & Wiz Khalifa to give you a stunning visual.

The title bears an obvious hat tip to Miley Cyrus for her 2013 resurgence of the twerk phenomenon. Probably lesser known to the viewing audience (especially younger viewers) is how the video's theme is based on the 1985 runaway teen flick "Weird Science", where two awkward and unpopular teenagers create their ultimate dream woman with the help of technology.

In the same vein, watch our hip hop trio in "Miley" scheme some computer plans of voluptuous proportions, as they conjure up a room full of well-rounded honeys for their booting shaking contest.

Brandi Glanville's 3 Rules For A Booty Call



Brandi Glanville‘s never one to blanch at a little spicy talk, and the hot-bodied housewife didn’t let us down in a new Q&A with our friends at OK!, where she dishes about her favorite topics: suitors, social media and sex! The outspoken reality star who was famously married to Eddie Cibrian (and once hooked up with Gerard Butler) says she’s sworn off any men who make their living on a stage, court or field.

“It doesn’t ever seem to end well for me, and it’s usually more about them and their ego,”
she said. “There’s a lot of ego stroking and other stroking that you have to do … it’s really hard to see the person you love on TV making out with another person. So no more actors for me and no more athletes, because there are just too many options for them. They could have any girl that they want — and they have them all.”

The 41-year-old mother-of-two said she’s looking for maturity and stability in her next mate, preferring a man who’s “five to eight years older,” and “has a dog or a plant that’s not fake, or something else that shows some level of commitment.”

One obstacle the outspoken Bravolebrity says she might have in her look for love is her penchant for controversial tweets, as she herself says that social media‘s ruining romance. “Social media is making us incredibly unsocial, little by little,” she explained, noting that “no one wants weird pictures of themselves out on social media so it’s keeping us from being social and being able to interact without worrying … it’s ruining our trust in people.”

If she can’t find Mr. Right and has to settle for Mr. Right Now, at least she’s got the proper ground rules for the occasional booty call. She explained, “There are three rules for a booty call: One is you don’t kiss. Two is you never stay the night. And three is, you have to choose wisely, because if you pick someone you’re emotionally invested in it can reopen bad feelings.”

Brandi’s new book Drinking & Dating: P.S. Social Media Is Ruining Romance is available now.

TED NUGENT APOLOGIZES TO OBAMA FOR 'MONGREL' REMARK


Ted Nugent is sorry.

Sort of.

After several days of controversy surrounding his foray on the Texas campaign trail, the rocker/right-wing agitator expressed regret for using the words “subhuman mongrel” to describe President Obama.

I did cross the line. I do apologize -- not necessarily to the president -- but on behalf of much better men than myself,” Nugent said Friday in an interview with Ben Ferguson, a Dallas-based conservative talk radio host.

Nugent said he regretted “using the street-fighter terminology of ‘subhuman mongrel’ instead of just using more understandable language, such as ‘violator of… the Constitution.... the liar that he is.'”

The 65-year-old “Motor City Madman” campaigned this week alongside Texas Atty. Gen. Greg Abbott, forcing the GOP gubernatorial front-runner to defend their association after Democrats publicized some of Nugent's more pungent remarks, including the slur against the president last month at a Las Vegas trade and gun show.

An Abbott spokesman said that while the candidate did not always endorse or agree with the language Nugent used, he appreciated his “forceful [advocacy] for individual liberty and constitutional rights.”

Other Republicans, however, were quick to denounce Nugent, including Texas Gov. Rick Perry, Arizona Sen. John McCain and Kentucky Sen. Rand Paul, a likely GOP presidential contender in 2016.

I will try to elevate my vernacular to the level of those great men that I’m learning from in the world of politics,” Nugent said in the call-in interview with Dallas station WBAP.

Former Dallas Cowboy Greg Ellis Worried Michael Sam Might "Pat Somebody On The Butt"

1

Former Dallas Cowboys defensive end Greg Ellis spoke with ESPN radio on Tuesday and had something ridiculous to say about Michael Sam joining the NFL.

Said Ellis:

"If he pats somebody on the butt — I hope ESPN don’t get mad and never have me back — but if he pats somebody on the butt, how is that to be received? If he does that how is that to be received? If he said, ‘Come on baby’? I called guys baby all the time on the football field, but when you have taken a stand and went and go public and say that, ‘I am gay,’ how is that going to be received? I’ve seen guys, I had guys on the Dallas Cowboys football team — I won’t mention names — who did not want you to pat them on their butt. So God forbid if you pat one of those guys on the butt it’s going to be a major problem.”

And not surprisingly, Ellis would have been worried Sam might check him out in the shower. Asked if having an openly gay player on the team would have made him uncomfortable, Ellis replied:

“I would. I would. People who’ve never been in an NFL shower room, not just locker room, it’s a open room. We don’t have private curtains. It’s just an open-form shower, so everybody sees each in the nude. Well if you’re looking at men as if you’re looking at women or vice versa, how are those guys to receive that? I don’t know. I don’t know how they will receive that. But I do know it would be a situation where I would go to the coach and try to work something out to say, ‘Obviously this is going to be a problem. What can we do? The kid can help us play, can help us win football games. We need him on the team. But this situation right here, we need to do something.’ ”

Krysten Ritter set to star, produce 1960s astronaut comedy for NBC



Don’t Trust the B star Krysten Ritter is leading a new NBC series called Mission Control where she’ll play a NASA engineer in 1965.

The Hollywood Reporter writes, “The workplace ensemble comedy, from executive producer Will Ferrell, is set in 1962 and in the tone of Anchorman. The single-camera comedy examines what happens when a strong woman butts heads with a macho astronaut in the race to land on the moon.”

Your mileage may vary on Anchorman, and this series has the potential to go terribly wrong, but we’re hoping it doesn’t because LADY NASA ENGINEER! But here’s the gist:

Ritter will star as Mary, the tough girl and head engineer who leads the Apollo team at Mission Control at the NASA Manned Space Center (in 1965). She’s a woman in a man’s world who is super-smart, brisk without being brusque and immensely capable without losing her feminine appeal. When Tom Stone is brought in to add balance to Mission Control, Mary sees it as a sexist attempt to undercut everything she has done.

Malcolm Barrett and Jonathan Slavin are also set to star with It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia’s David Hornsby writing the script.

Lea Michele as Franny Brice in Funny Girl on Bway??

1.168730

Hey, did you know that Lea Michele wants to play Fanny Brice in Funny Girl on Broadway? Yeah, we thought so.

The Glee star has definitely been vocal about her love of Barbra Streisand and the role that made her a star. She’s sang the show’s songs on the Tony Awards, on her hit Fox show and, well, anywhere she can. And her Glee character, Rachel Berry, is now actually STARRING as Fanny Bruce in Funny Girl on TV. So what is all of this building up to? You guessed it: Lea Michele is Fanny Bruce in Funny Girl on BROADWAY!

The TV starlet told Broadway BFF Jonathan Groff in the new issue of Teen Vogue that Glee creator Ryan Murphy has now officially obtained the rights to the show and that “we’re hoping to do that at some point.”

OK, so it’s not exactly happening tomorrow. But it looks like it’s happening! Congrats, Lea! Dreams do come true.

Marvel Studios Developing Stand-Alone Black Widow Film for Scarlett Johansson



Marvel Studios is developing a film that would revolve around Black Widow, the character played by Scarlett Johansson in the “Iron Man” and “The Avengers” franchises.

Studio president Kevin Feige has long been high on the character even before her role was expanded for April’s “Captain America: The Winter Soldier.” When promoting the homevideo release for “Iron Man 2,” in 2010, he said, “We’ve already started discussions with Scarlett (Johansson) about the idea of a solo movie and have begun putting together concepts, but ‘The Avengers’ [2] comes first.”

Superheroes have always had a diversity problem, which is sort of ironic, really.

Le1f Signed to XL // New Single & Hey EP

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Terrible Records, the label that Grizzly Bear’s Chris Taylor co-founded, is coming up in the world. As Billboard reports, it has a new joint venture going with XL Recordings, and now the label has signed its first rapper: The New York iconoclast Le1f, whose Fly Zone and Tree House tapes both earned the Mixtape Of The Week distinction last year. This is a very good call on the part of Terrible and XL, because that dude can rap, and because he’s got a theatrical flair that most rappers would be too scared to ever attempt. Le1f’s working on an album now, but before that, he’ll release the new EP Hey, which includes production from past Le1f collaborators Boody, Harry B, Owwwls, and Matrixxman. First single “Boom” is a sharp, streamlined take on Le1f’s clubby, snarling aesthetic, and you can hear it and check out the tracklist below.

Freight Train Smashes Into Movie Crew Filming Gregg Allman Biopic, Killing One

A female camera operator’s assistant was killed Thursday and seven other people were injured when a train unexpectedly bore down on a crew doing camera tests for “Midnight Rider,” the Greg Allman biopic shooting in Georgia, a law enforcement source confirmed to TheWrap.
Identities of the victims were not immediately released. About 20 people were on the set in Wayne County, Ga., many of them local hires out of Savannah; with shooting not scheduled to officially begin until Monday, it was unlikely that any cast members were present.

Local officials said the crew – which included director Randall Miller (“Bottle Shock”) – had placed a mattress on a railroad bridge while filming a dream sequence when a train arrived unexpectedly. Though the crew was expecting two local trains, a third freighter’s warning whistle gave them less than a minute to act, an eyewitness told Variety.

Banana Republic uses Gay Couple Nate Berkus and Jeremiah Brent on Their New Campaign




Banana Republic has jumped on the trend of casting “real people” in ad campaigns — specifically, real couples. And while it’s not an entirely new idea, this is one campaign we can get behind, namely because it stars interior design guru Nate Berkus and his fiancé, former Rachel Zoe employee Jeremiah Brent (also an interior designer).

Brent stole our hearts as the attractive-yet-approachable-and-sweet interior designer that could in the fourth season of now-defunct Bravo series “The Rachel Zoe Project”. And now he’s back in the spotlight as one half of the sweetest campaign couple ever. Thank you, Banana Republic.

The campaign stars other real-life duos and families: Argentinian model and Tulum hotelier Nicolas Malleville and his family, Nashville natives and longtime sweethearts Cory Bond and Bekah Jenkins, and up-and-coming European models Sara Blomqvist and Jeremy Young. And good for them. But ‘Miah and Nate are our favorites.

Katy Perry Booed at Moschino Show During Milan Fashion Week

katyperry

At what point does being fashionably late become unfashionable? Katy Perry found out the hard way on Thursday, Feb. 20, when she showed up just before 9 p.m. to the Moschino runway presentation at Milan Fashion Week -- and was met with a chorus of boos from some annoyed photographers who had been waiting for her to arrive for almost an hour.

An interview with the ★♔McCONAISSANCE♔★ and his life partner Woody!



Woody Harrelson and Matthew McConaughey play uneasy cop partners in new television drama True Detective. Jane Mulkerrins meets them

The serial killer drama True Detective is just about to blow in from Louisiana to the UK via Sky Atlantic, and its writer Nic Pizzolatto is really selling it to me: “Cops find a dead body right at the start and there’s something weird about it; ever seen that before?” he asks. “The cops are riding along in a car and they don’t quite get along; ever seen that before?”

The answer to both questions, of course, is yes. What we’ve rarely seen before, though, is the sophistication of True Detective’s slowly unfolding story, told in complex, multiple flashbacks, and spanning 17 years, across eight sweepingly cinematic episodes. In fact, the writing was so strong that it attracted Hollywood big-hitters Matthew McConaughey and Woody Harrelson to play those two cops, riding along in a car, not quite getting along.

“My idea was that those familiar tropes could act as a way to ground the viewer, before subverting them,” explains Pizzolatto, who makes a cameo appearance in episode four as a barman, with a T-shirt saying “Kiss Me, I’m an ass----”. He talks of “telling a crime story to lure people in, then feeding them the vegetables [an exploration of character and morality] that they wouldn’t otherwise eat”.

There certainly seems to be an appetite for his ambitious tale, set in his native state – a landscape of power plants, burnt-out churches and isolated communities infested with religious fanaticism. True Detective is already going down a storm with US audiences; by episode four – which culminates in a tense, continuous seven-minute action sequence that has been called one of the best of all time – the thin blue line has entirely dissolved and the mood is suddenly that of a Southern-set Apocalypse Now.

Liam Neeson opens up on death of wife Natasha Richardson


It's been nearly five years since actress Natasha Richardson died suddenly after a skiing accident in Canada in 2009, and her husband, actor Liam Neeson, said it's still hard to believe she's gone.

In a new "60 Minutes" interview, the 61-year-old star tells host Anderson Cooper that sometimes, he still thinks it's going to be his wife when he hears a door opening in their New York home. "(Her death) was never real. It still kind of isn't," he said.

Neeson, who stars in the upcoming action film "Non-Stop," also shared the heartbreaking moments when he saw his wife after her accident. When he finally made it to her bedside after being denied access because nobody recognized him at the Montreal hospital, Neeson said he knew what had to be done.

"I was told she was brain dead, I'm seeing this X-ray, it was like, 'Wow,'" he recounted during the interview. "I just told her I loved her, said, 'Sweetie, you're not coming back from this. You banged your head. It's ... I don't know if you can hear me, but it's ... this is what's gone down. We're bringing you back to New York, and your family and friends will come.' "

From Beyoncé to Sinatra: Photos of the Food and Drinks Stars Demand

Brooklyn-based photographer Henry Hargreaves is a master of still life photography. His Band Rider series is one of my favorites. Using a Flemish painting style, these photos portrait the food and drink that many famous artists demand in their shows, from Beyoncé Knowles and Frank Sinatra to Britney Spears and Busta Rhymes.—J.

The catering riders themselves can be pretty comprehensive. We initially thought I would try and shoot the whole list of items but quickly realized that this would become an exercise in spending money and waste. So we decided to edit down and focus on the quirky and unique requests and how some of these things may be juxtaposed.

Space Jam 2 Getting The Green Light! It’s Starring Lebron James!


Space Jam is one of the more bizarre films made in the 90′s. It seems like one of those films that was proposed in a board room and due to corporate politics no one had the balls to shoot down what is obviously the most balls ass crazy movies ever made.

I can just see it now.

‘Hey, you know what everybody loves?’

‘No, what?’ ‘Michael Jordan. He’s got like six championships.”

“You’re right. Everybody does love him.”

” You know what else people love?”

“No, what?”


“The Looney Toons. What if we made a movie where Michael Jordan played basketball with the Looney Toons?”

Que the defining silence… and the eventual green light.

Well, the old adage is true. Those who do not study history are doomed to repeat it. Space Jam 2 is officially in development. And Lebron James is going to be the protagonist.

Little else is known about the film at this time. Once we have more info, we’ll let you know.

The only question that keeps popping into my head is this:

How pissed do you think Kobe is?

Cops Protect Justin Bieber -- He's Not an Animal in a Zoo



Cops are sending patrol cars to Justin Bieber's house numerous times a day to make sure people are letting him live in peace ... because they say, "He's not an animal in a zoo."

TMZ broke the story ... Justin has rented the Atlanta estate of rap mogul Dallas Austin for 3 months. The Sandy Springs Police Dept. is responsible for patrolling the area where Bieber is living.

A Captain for the PD tells TMZ, they're aware Bieber is a big celeb who attracts lots of fans, especially young girls. The Captain says they are now putting cops on special patrol, specifically driving past the home multiple times every day and night ... to make sure people aren't loitering and trespassing.

The Captain also said his dept. is aware of Justin's problems with his Calabasas neighbors, and they won't tolerate any nonsense -- either from Bieber or his new neighbors.

Miguel Pleads No Contest To DUI ...'I'm Really Sorry'



Miguel just pled no contest to DUI ... and unlike most celebs -- he's freely admitting he screwed up.

The singer was pulled over last August for tinted windows, and cops suspected he was under the influence. Miguel was arrested and had a blood alcohol level of .11.

The singer, who's had huge hits like "Adorn" and "Beautiful" with Mariah Carey, tells TMZ, "Driving with alcohol in my system was reckless. I'm really sorry and I'm taking responsibility for this mistake."

Judge Lynne Hobbs placed Miguel on 3 years informal probation, fined him $360, and ordered him to complete an alcohol ed class.

Katy Perry Booed By Scum As She Arrives In LA, Assistant Gets Violent


Katy Perry had a rough landing upon arrival in Los Angeles today.

The pop singer arrived at LAX Friday after spending some time in Italy for Milan Fashion Week, where she strut the catwalk for Jeremy Scott's debut Moschino show alongside Rita Ora.

Unfortunately, Perry didn't receive the warm welcome one might have hoped. Literally covered from head to toe, the "Dark Horse" singer tried to shield herself from cameras as her camp led her through the airport and into their car. Regardless, the paparazzi continued to heckle the star and even began booing at her to make fun of her incident on the runway.

Her assistant Tamra Natisin tried to push the shutterbugs out of the way, which was caught on this video, and began getting confrontational with one who started threatening her with assault and almost got into the car to take pictures.

"Get the f--k out," she was heard telling him as she shoved him back before getting into the car.


Sadly, Katy's cameo on the catwalk yesterday wasn't the most pleasant. After arriving late to the show, Perry was faced with multiple boos by photographers that were angry by her tardiness (apparently, they've never heard of being fashionably late).

"You're all going to get your picture, so shut the f--k up," the Prism singer shouted as the jeers from the audience grew louder.

However, multiple reports also alleged that Perry was told to arrive at 8:55 even though the show began at 8:00 p.m.

Nicki Minaj Sued -- Her Hair Guy Wigs Out



The guy who credits himself for making Nicki Minaj a bizarre spectacle is now suing the rapper, claiming she stole his wig designs and cheated him out of millions of dollars.

Terrence Davidson claims in his lawsuit ... he's a big reason for Nicki's success. He rewinds to 2010, when he created what he calls a panoply of "fresh, hip and unique wigs" ... including the pink upper bun wig, the fox fur wig, the pink high top wig, the superbass wig and the half blond-half pink wig.

Davidson says Nicki not only stole his designs and marketed them herself, she even talked him out of a multi-million dollar reality show deal because she claimed it would ruin their partnership.

Davidson wants a minimum of $30 million.

How many of this year’s Oscar nominees pass the Bechdel test? Not many.



Judging by the winners’ speeches at the Golden Globes, 2013 was a banner year for ladies in cinema — everyone from Amy Adams to Cate Blanchett praised their writers for including strong female roles.

But on closer look, many of the year’s best pictures fail the the most rudimentary test of gender equity in film. It’s called the “Bechdel test,” so named for its creator, cartoonist Alison Bechdel, and it has only three tenets: Does the film have at least two named women? Do they speak to each other? And do they speak about something that isn’t a man?

Sure some of these movies had semi-legitimate reasons to fail the test (12YAS, Gravity, Captain Phillips) but this shit still pisses me off to no end.

Lamar Odom on Khloé Kardashian Marriage: There's Nothing I Would Do Differently



Lamar Odom didn't hold back when asked about Khloé Kardashian in his latest interview with reporters in Spain.

The basketball star, who has just signed a one-year deal to play for Laboral Kutxa based in Vitoria-Gasteiz, gushed about his marriage to the E! reality star by saying that "those were some of the best years of my life."

He added, "There is nothing I would do different. Being married and being married to the woman I decided to marry, besides having my children, was the most important thing in my life."

Lamar also explained that he'll always have fond feelings for Khloé, despite their pending divorce.

"That's my wife, I love my wife, she'll always be my wife no matter what," he explained.

Lamar did speak on their split, but was vague when asked about the future has in store for the two.

"Who knows, we don't know exactly, only time will tell. I hope [we don't get divorced] and even if we were divorced she'll always be my wife."

Keeping a level head and not stressing about what's in store seems to have been something ingrained in the Queens born-athlete since he was a little boy.

"My grandmother used to tell me if you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans," he told the reporters. "She was a wise one."

The former Los Angeles Lakers player also chuckled a bit when questioned if he believes he's made any mistakes over the years—both personally and professionally.

"We all have," Lamar said.

Hot Mess or Sleepwalker? Adele Steps Out in Giant Jammies



We've heard of celebs slipping into Ambien-induced sleepwalking sessions, so maybe that explains Adele's awkward attire?

From the stretchy black unders, covered by what appears to be an afghan with armholes, we can't imagine this look was intentional. The "Rumor Has It" crooner isn't wearing any makeup and has her hair in a classic overnight updo.

Could the 10-time Grammy winner just be a tired mum who didn't have time to slap on a full face of makeup before running out to grab some much needed coffee? Maybe this international superstar doesn't give a crap about what her critics say! Maybe she did sleep in this outfit or maybe this cozy combo is how she enjoys her time out of tight cocktail dresses and sky high heels!

Whatever the reason, we're on #TeamAdele regarding this ragged look. Sometimes a girl's just gotta run to the grocery store without making it a major fashion moment. And to that we say, amen!

Rihanna's Alleged Anti-Gay Comments, "Arnt you gay? ... Nuff said blah!"

Major flip-flopping after a gay fan publicly accused Rihanna of saying he was going to hell for his homosexuality -- he has now changed his story ... insisting he was LYING the whole time ... and actually Photoshopped the Instagram image going around the Internet.

Benvoy Seals posted the above image on Instagram last night -- showing a back and forth between him and Rihanna on her comments section.

Benvoy writes, "Rihanna u going to hell girl" -- and, in the image, Rihanna responds, "Arnt you gay? ... Nuff said blah!"

The exchange was shocking, especially because Rihanna voiced her support for gay rights in Russia less than a week ago -- posting a photo of herself wearing a hat embroidered with "P6," which stands for Principle 6 ... a campaign against Russia's anti-gay propaganda law.

New Music: Nelly Furtado - "Red Balloons"



Listen to this unreleased song by Nelly Furtado entitled "Red Balloons". The full audio was uploaded by a random YouTube user over the weekend. Where is this from? By the sound of it, it may be from the recording sessions of Nelly's never-completed and scrapped album "Lifestyle". This album was supposed to follow Nelly's first Spanish album "Mi Plan", with a rumored release date of late 2010, but it never got completed and released. At the time, Nelly preferred to go on tour to support "Mi Plan". Fans had to wait a couple more years for new Nelly Furtado, and that was 2012's "The Spirit Indestructible".

"Lifestyle" was supposed to be an album filled with organic music, to the detriment of Nelly's commercial sound. "Red Balloons" fits into this "organic" category. The song is very laidback. The verses are bit a weak, but the chorus is really nice (especially the last one!). The leaked version of "Red Balloons" is clearly unmastered. It had potential, but I could understand why Nelly opted to leave it in "the vault". Hopefully she can pull a successful comeback soon. Get back to her "urban" sound, a la "Loose" era.

Britney 'monitored 24/7'


The 32-year-old singer has been the subject of a conservatorship order since 2008, which was the climax of her year-long meltdown that saw her shave her head and lose custody of her two sons with her ex-husband Kevin Federline.

Although she now has her professional life back on track and is staging a two-year residency in Las Vegas, her father Jamie Spears and several others still make all her decisions for her.


"The bodyguards - who are with Britney 24/7 - report to her dad and tell them everything she says and does. She has no credit cards and has to check every purchase with her dad, who gives her a monthly allowance. She's not allowed near booze and her dad has hired a nutritionist to plan her diet," an insider told British magazine Heat. "He even has an assistant lay her toothbrush out, already loaded with toothpaste, because she often forgets to brush her teeth. Also Brit's a germaphobe, she'll only drink from a straw - even coffee - which she has to watch being unwrapped."

Britney has had a series of romantic relationships since her breakdown, including with her ex-fiancé Jason Trawick. She is now dating Dave Lucado, but apparently their budding romance is closely monitored.

"She's still completely controlled down to the last second. Her dad and team have all of her calls and texts monitored, Brit doesn't type, so she has an assistant who vets her messages and types back what she dictates. Until recently she wasn't even allowed her own phone. Now, she's allowed restricted calls to her boyfriend but she still isn't allowed on the internet without supervision," the source said.

Jack O'Connell to Play MI6 Agent in Universal's Potential Spy Franchise 'Section 6'

The studio is doubling down on the 23-year-old British actor by casting him as the young lead in its potential spy franchise. Universal Pictures is doubling down on its "Unbroken" star Jack O'Connell, who is in final negotiations for the younger lead in the studio's prized spy movie "Section 6," multiple individuals familiar with the project have told TheWrap.

The studio acquired Aaron Berg's red-hot spec script in a spirited bidding war back in October. It was Berg's first sale, and sources pegged the deal at $1.2 million. Universal beat Sony for the project because the studio included progress-to-production language in its offer to separate itself from the rest of the herd.

The historical spy thriller follows the World War I-era formation of British intelligence agency MI6 and its first director, Sir George Mansfield Cummings, who served as the inspiration for M in the "James Bond" series. Not only does Universal think "Section 6" has the potential to launch a hit franchise, but the studio believes in rising star O'Connell, whose performance as Louis Zamperini in Angelina Jolie's "Unbroken" is expected to garner awards buzz.

Justin Bieber Olympics Billboard: USA Vs. Canada Hockey Game Inspires "Loser Keeps Bieber" Sign

Bg7rWeJCAAAjdRt

Loser gets him! Teams USA and Canada are gearing up for ice hockey's semifinal game in Sochi on Friday, but it seems the stakes are much higher than first anticipated. It turns out, the loser will have to take home. . . Justin Bieber.

A Chicago billboard has gone viral after the Twitter account Command Transportation shared one featuring the Canadian singer. (The account often posts photos of the creative electronic billboards that appear on the Command Transportation building near Chicago's Edens Expressway.) In the electronic image, Bieber is pitted between Chicago Blackhawks players Patrick Kane and Jonathan Toews with the headline "LOSER KEEPS BIEBER." (Kane is set to play for the U.S. and Toews for Canada at the Olympic match.)

"Nothing is higher than the stakes of tomorrow's game," the Twitter page captioned on Thursday, Feb. 21.
Bieber, 19, has had a tough couple of months. The "Boyfriend" singer was arrested in Miami for drag racing and DUI on Jan. 23. He set bail at $2,500: $1,000 for DUI, $1,000 for resisting arrest, and $500 for an expired license. Then on Jan. 31, the young star's private plane was detained at New Jersey's Teterboro Airport on suspicion of marijuana on board, but ultimately none was found.

Tell Us: What do you think about the Justin Bieber billboard?
