Most Moviegoers Are Women, Even Though Movies Treat Women Like Garbage

The MPAA just released their annual report on box office statistics, and women continue to make up the majority of filmgoers. Women make up 52% of movie theater audiences and we purchase 50% of tickets. So why are women so poorly represented on screen and behind the scenes?

Women's employment in film has now dipped below what it was in 1998. Female actors are relegated to less dynamic, more sexualized roles. Female characters are more likely to be naked and less likely to talk. Movies about women do well at the box office, yet rarely get made. Women's involvement is healthy for the industry. But despite all the lip service, insiders say that Hollywood isn't actually committed to hiring more women.

We're filling the seats. We're forking over the cash. We deserve better.

Reza Farahan -- Kanye West Paid Off Vogue to Get Kim Kardashian on Cover

Reza Farahan from "Shahs of Sunset" just made Kanye West's list -- that's what happens when you say Kim Kardashian would NEVER make it on the cover of Vogue ... unless Kanye bought it for her.

We asked Reza about Kim and Kanye's new cover shot for the fashion bible ... and he's not convinced Kim deserves the honor, to say the least -- "That's a legit fashion magazine, and this bitch was selling her s*** at Sears."

You gotta watch ... Reza tries to soften his shot -- at Sears and Kim -- but fails. Also, he's got a great idea for the next Vogue cover.

Reza's funny ... but Kanye's gonna have to try really hard not to hurt him.

Russell Crowe calls Noah criticism 'bordering on absolute stupidity'

Russell Crowe has had enough of people bashing his upcoming movie without even seeing it.

"We've had probably over a year now of very harsh criticism from a bunch of people who have put their name and stamp on an opinion that's not even based on the movie or seeing the movie, just an assumption of what it could be or how bad it could be or how wrong it could be in their eyes, which I think quite frankly is bordering on absolute stupidity, because now, I think, people are seeing the movie and they're realizing how respectful it is and how potent it is," Crowe said during an appearance on Wednesday's Good Morning America.

Indeed, the actor claimed that the film is a great work of art, as it inspires discussions about important issues.

Kobe Bryant was not impressed with Miami's Trayvon tribute

In the March 31 edition of the New Yorker there’s a great profile of Kobe Bryant by Ben McGrath. In it, Bryant talks about aging out of his Hall of Fame career with the Los Angeles Lakers, and how he thinks his fame is “pretty fucking cool” for a kid who grew up in Italy and moved to suburban Philly as a teenager.

Throughout his career, Bryant’s been talking about as an outsider, specifically when it comes to being the most famous in the world in a sport that’s overwhelmingly black. It’s given him a politically moderate stance on things, which was on display when McGrath brought up the subject of LeBron James posting a photo online of the Heat players dressed in hoodies in solidarity with Trayvon Martin.

"I won’t react to something just because I’m supposed to, because I’m an African-American,” he said. “That argument doesn’t make any sense to me. So we want to advance as a society and a culture, but, say, if something happens to an African-American we immediately come to his defense? Yet you want to talk about how far we’ve progressed as a society? Well, we’ve progressed as a society, then don’t jump to somebody’s defense just because they’re African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right? So I won’t assert myself.”

After Oscar, What Happens to Lupita Nyong'o?

She was a veritable awards-season Cinderella. In only a few short months, Lupita Nyong'o went from being a complete unknown to a red-carpet princess, applauded for both her impeccable fashion sense and her undeniable acting abilities. The 31-year-old -- who was born of Kenyan parents in Mexico City, raised in Nairobi and then graduated from the Yale School of Drama in 2012 -- triumphed at the 86th Academy Awards, where she was awarded the Oscar as best supporting actress for her unflinching performance as Patsey in Steve McQueen's 12 Years a Slave.

"Only Lovers Left Alive" Doesn't Bother With The Rules Of The Vampire Movie Genre

If the vampire genre is soon headed for a coffin of its own, it'll at least have the luxury of going out in style. In Only Lovers Left Alive, indie filmmaking legend Jim Jarmusch has made the most gorgeous and heartfelt film of his 34-year career: a fanged love story, inspired by Anne Rice, Mark Twain, and Jarmusch's own enraged misanthropy, in which Detroit-based Adam (Tom Hiddleston) and Tangier-rooted Eve (Tilda Swinton) rekindle their centuries-long affair. They're forced to endure some very human problems, like Eve's moocher sister, Ava (Mia Wasikowska), and some specific to immortal beings, like Adam's frustration that his vampirism-induced anonymity keeps him from being recognized as the Hendrix-level guitarist he is.

Columbus Short Charged with Battery in Bar Attack

An actor on the hit TV show "Scandal" was arrested Wednesday after prosecutors charged him with felony battery with serious bodily injury for allegedly knocking out a man and breaking his nose.

Columbus Keith Short, 31, is accused of punching a man at a West Los Angeles restaurant March 15 and rendering him unconscious. Short allegedly sucker-punched the man after becoming involved in a disagreement, prosecutors allege.

Short was booked by Claremont police Wednesday and released on $50,000 bail soon after. Short, who plays one of character Olivia Pope's crisis management experts, Harrison Wright, faces up to four years in prison if convicted of the felony charge.

The alleged attack occurred at Gabe's Bar and Grill. Short, a onetime choreographer for Britney Spears, had in recent years built a career as a TV actor.

Short's off-screen actions have repeatedly landed him in jail. He was arrested for drunk driving in July 2008, Los Angeles police records show.

He was arrested again July 19, 2010, for battery with great bodily injury and later for failing to appear on a court case. Short was convicted of disturbing the peace and placed on three years' probation, court records show.

He was arrested and charged last month for battery on a former spouse at his former Woodland Hills home. He plead not guilty.


Wu-Tang Clan Announce Another New Album, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin

Only one copy will be produced

In July, Wu-Tang Clan will release a new album, A Better Tomorrow, which coincides with the 20th anniversary of the group's debut. But Forbes reports that they're also set to release another LP, Once Upon a Time in Shaolin, with a caveat: They're just making one copy of the double album, which was recorded in secret over the last few years.

The album, which features the group's original members, will be housed inside an engraved silver-and-nickel box created by British-Moroccan artist Yahya. According to RZA and producer Tarik "Cilvaringz" Azzougarh, the plan is to tour it through museums, galleries and festivals, where visitors will be charged a price to listen to the 128-minute, 31 song album on headphones provided by the venue. (Rigorous security checks will discourage the possibility of any illegal recording.)

"We’re about to put out a piece of art like nobody else has done in the history of [modern] music," RZA said in an interview with Forbes. "We’re making a single-sale collector’s item. This is like somebody having the scepter of an Egyptian king." After the tour is over, the group will make the album available for purchase for a price "in the millions."

The project dates back to 1997
, when Cilvaringz hopped on stage during a Wu-Tang show in Amsterdam. From there, he maintained a correspondence with RZA and eventually broached the idea of producing a new album in the late 2000s. "It took a long time," Cilvaringz said to Forbes. "After five years, I’m sitting here and I’m like, 'Am I really going to release this record and see it die after a week?'" He and RZA came up with the concept for the album's release, which is still in the planning stages as no exhibition dates have been confirmed.

Regardless of how it turns out—Cilvaringz acknowledges in the interview that the whole thing could turn into a bust—you could never accuse Wu-Tang for lack of ambition.


Showtime orders Morgan Spurlock's docu-series 'Seven Deadly Sins'

Showtime will take an in-depth look at the weird and darkly comic world of sin in the documentary series "Seven Deadly Sins," from Oscar-nominated executive producer Morgan Spurlock (Super Size Me).

Hosted by Spurlock, this stylized documentary series will explore each of the seven deadly sins -- one per episode -- and will be told through Spurlock’s unique and extreme lens. "Seven Deadly Sins" will debut on Thursday, June 19 at 11 p.m. on Showtime.

"For years, I've wanted to do an Alfred Hitchcock Presents style show comprised completely of non-fiction stories,” said Spurlock. “A series just as dark and twisted as anything fiction could imagine, and now I'm thrilled to have that dream come true with 'Seven Deadly Sins.' With Showtime as a partner, we're going to make this as depraved as any scripted program as we dive head first into Lust, Gluttony, Greed, Sloth, Wrath, Envy & Pride. You won't believe it until you see it ... and even then, you may not believe it."


Zefron Punched In The Face By Homeless Man On Skid Row

Law enforcement officials have revealed that Zac Efron was involved in a fight just after midnight Sunday on skid row in Los Angeles. Cops were out on their beat under the Harbor Freeway when they claim to have witnessed Efron and another man identified as his bodyguard in a physical altercation with at least 3 other people.

The cops broke up the fight but not before Zac took a vicious right hook to the mouth. When the actor was questioned, he told the authorities that he had run out of gas and was sitting in his ride waiting for a tow truck. While waiting, they admitted to chucking a bottle out of the window – the contents of which haven’t been revealed – and it busted on the pavement near some transients.

Said transients took offense believing the bottle was thrown at them on purpose so they confronted Zac and his hired protector. Two men went after the bodyguard and when Zac stepped out of his ride to try to help he got thumped in the mouth telling police, “It was the hardest I’ve ever been hit in my life.”

Efron has had his struggles with drug addiction – having attended rehab twice last year for cocaine abuse. The area where the fisticuffs went down is a known high-alert area for drug deals. A source told TMZ that Efron was “obviously intoxicated.”

Law enforcement said that no one was arrested because it was viewed as “mutual combat.”

Did Jennifer Lopez forget she was on live TV?

During Wednesday's American Idol, the judge accidentally said "f--k" in the midst of critiquing contestant Jena Irene's stellar performance of Evanescence's 2003 rock hit "Bring Me To Life."

"Jena, you sound phenomenal," she said. "[Harry Connick, Jr.'s] right, the minute we hear your voice it's soothing, it's like, 'Oh, my god,' and she's gonna sing it great. The only thing I would say is I wanted you to be more messy. Do you know what I mean?" J.Lo demonstrated what she meant by flipping her own tresses wildly and saying, "You were kind of fixing your hair, and right at the beginning you kind of just threw yourself into the crowd and your hair went crazy. I wish it would have been more messy."

Proof Harry Styles is the finest member of One Direction

harry styles

Harry Styles has yet again proved he’s the kind-hearted gentleman we had him down as.

The 20-year-old was put to the test by Matt Healy (son of Denise Welch and Tim Healy and lead singer of The 1975) on Nick Grimshaw’s Radio 1 breakfast show during the latest round of Call Or Delete.

The game sees celebs prank call their high-profile contacts live on air and Hazza didn’t disappoint.

After a quick apology for the early morning wake-up call, Matt said: ‘I was just wondering, this is going to sound ridiculous, but I’m trying to get in touch with Niall... Basically I need £5k, I’m in Chalk Farm (north London) and I’m having an emergency... it’s actually quite a serious situation. I’m in a phone booth and a bloke is pointing at a picture of (Take That’s) Mark Owen, it’s actually quite threatening.’

Taking the matter very seriously indeed, Harry replied: ‘OK, well we’re in Bristol. But let me go and I’ll get my assistant to call you and she’ll sort it out.’

We can’t quite imagine Liam Payne, Zayn Malik, Louis Tomlinson and Niall Horan behaving in quite the same way. Can you?

Petals on the Wind will air on May 26...and your first images

Ready to see grown up Cathy and Christopher?

Here are the first two character images from Lifetime’s Petals on the Wind, the sequel to ratings sensation Flowers in the Attic. Plus, we can also exclusively reveal the film’s premiere date: Scrap your Memorial Day plans, because you’re going to watching Petals on the Wind Monday, May 26 at 8 p.m.

The film stars Rose McIver (Once Upon a Time) as Cathy Dollanganger and Wyatt Nash (Pretty Little Liars) as her brother/secret attic lover Christopher Dollanganger. These two young-ish Flowers parts were recast because the sequel picks up a decade after the conclusion of the first film. Heather Graham also returns as their mother Corrine, while Cathy’s new boyfriend is played by Will Kemp (90210).

One photo shows a family portrait with a trio of blue-eyed Dollangangers decked out in swinging retro threads. Cathy in particular looks rather intense, doesn’t she? Then there’s a photo of Cathy and her abusive dancer paramour Julian, a relationship that leads her to confront the forbidden romance she had with her brother in the first film. Ellen Burstyn and Dylan Bruce will also reprise their roles in the film as grandmother Olivia and Corrine’s husband Bart, respectively.

Petals is based on the V.C. Andrews novel. The first film garnered 6.1 million viewers for Lifetime in its premiere. Check out the second image below:

The series is produced by Warner Bros. Television and Bad Robot and stars Karl Urban, Michael Ealy, Mekia Cox, Minka Kelly, Lili Taylor, Mackenzie Crook and Michael Irby.

Poor Zefron Relapsed Again...

Zac Efron was a hero who risked his own life to save the life of his "bodyguard" -- so claims the bodyguard.
Image and video hosting by TinyPic
We spoke to the "bodyguard" who says he and Zac were "cruising" around downtown L.A. Sunday at 12:30 AM, when they suddenly ran out of gas and rolled to a stop at the bottom of a downtown L.A. off-ramp.

Later in our conversation, the man -- we agreed not to use his name -- said it wasn't so much "cruising" as it was going to a restaurant in Little Tokyo in the downtown area.

TMZ broke the story ... Zac told cops they had run out of gas and for some reason threw a bottle out of the car which shattered and angered some nearby transients. Zac claimed the transients attacked the man and as Zac went to help him a transient viciously struck Zac in the face.

He tells us ... the transients actually went after him with "a spear" -- like a shank -- and stabbed him in the face, stomach and chest. He says Zac then got out of the car and swung a vodka bottle at the transients to fend off the attack. He says Zac actually thwarted the attack and saved his life.

So the man says the bottle Zac claimed to have thrown out the window wasn't really thrown at all. He says Zac used it as a weapon during the attack.

BTW ... we checked, and the "bodyguard" has a criminal record for drugs and violence.

So basically drug deal gone wrong. so sad. :(
ONTD, have you ever been in the vicinity of a drug deal gone wrong?

'Alice in Arabia' Writer: Media Mob Killed My Pro-Arab, Pro-Tolerance TV Series

On March 17, Brooke Eikmeier had her drama, Alice in Arabia, ordered to pilot at ABC Family. It was scrapped four days later after advocacy groups and a Buzzfeed article raised concerns that the series about an American teen who is kidnapped by her relatives and taken to Saudi Arabia would perpetuate negative stereotypes of Arabs and Muslims. In abandoning the project, an ABC Family spokesperson said, "the current conversation surrounding our pilot was not what we had envisioned and is certainly not conducive to the creative process." Eikmeier, who worked on shows including Family Guy and Boston Legal before enlisting in the Army in 2009 to learn Arabic and perform Signals Intelligence, now will shop the drama elsewhere. She has written this response to the controversy for The Hollywood Reporter.

A week ago, I was prepping to cast a mixed-race Arab girl to be the star of a cable series that would focus on a loving, but conflicted, Muslim family. I anticipated controversy surrounding the topics and characters, but hoped the way the series progressed, the predominantly Arab cast, and the conversation it would spark would be a step forward in exposing and discussing female issues in a complex and diverse world.

Today, if you Google my name, I am accused of being a tone-deaf racist hack intent on furthering an anti-Muslim agenda, callously exposing children to being bullied and beaten on playgrounds.

Uncle Kobe Responds to the backlash over Trayvon Martin Comments

NBA star Kobe Bryant was trending on Twitter Thursday when remarks he made about how he felt about the Trayvon Martin case were published.

When Bryant was asked by the author of the article what he thought of the Miami Heat’s show of solidarity with Martin -- the team posed in hooded jackets like the one Martin was wearing the night he was shot and killed by George Zimmerman in a Sanford, Fla., neighborhood -- Bryant said he didn't see how such support showed any "progress."

"So we want to advance as a society and a culture, but, say, if something happens to an African-American we immediately come to his defense? Yet you want to talk about how far we’ve progressed as a society? Well, we’ve progressed as a society, then don’t jump to somebody’s defense just because they’re African-American. You sit and you listen to the facts just like you would in any other situation, right? So I won’t assert myself.”

Ridley Scott's Exodus ft. Brown Face Gets A Title Change

As one Biblical epic sets sail (so to speak) in theaters this weekend, news out of Las Vegas' CinemaCon is that another has undergone a title change.

Ridley Scott's "Exodus" starring Christian Bale is now known as "Exodus: Gods and Kings," a combination of the project's former title (when Steven Spielberg and Ang Lee were circling it) and "Exodus." The studio could not clear the rights for "Exodus" alone, I'm told, because MGM owns it in perpetuity.

Bale will star as Moses in the film. Last year he told HitFix to expect "shocking stuff" from the film. "It's an intriguing piece, because it's very few people that I've met that have actually read the Torah, the Pentateuch, the five books of Moses, all the way through," he said. "Most people read snippets. If you read it all the way through, it's harsh. It's really 'Old Testament.' And violence in the extreme. He was not a man of any half measures whatsoever."

The actor is coming off a Best Actor Oscar nomination for David O. Russell's "American Hustle" and also appeared last year in Scott Cooper's "Out of the Furnace." He also has Terrence Malick's "Knight of Cups" on the horizon.

"Exodus Gods and Kings" is set for release on Dec. 12.

Aaron McGruder opens up about 'The Boondocks'

"As the world now knows, The Boondocks will be returning for a fourth season, but I will not be returning with it. I’d like to extend my gratitude to Sony and Adult Swim for three great seasons.

I created The Boondocks two decades ago in college, did the daily comic for six years, and was showrunner on the animated series for the first three seasons. The Boondocks pretty much represents my life’s work to this point. Huey, Riley, and Granddad are not just property to me. They are my fictional blood relatives. Nothing is more painful than to leave them behind.

To quote a great white man, “Hollywood is a business”. And to quote another great white man, “Don’t hold grudges”.

What has never been lost on me is the enormous responsibility that came with The Boondocks - particularly the television show and it’s relatively young audience. It was important to offend, but equally important to offend for the right reasons. For three seasons I personally navigated this show through the minefields of controversy. It was not perfect. And it definitely was not quick. But it was always done with a keen sense of duty, history, culture, and love. Anything less would have been simply unacceptable.

As for me, I’m finally putting a life of controversy and troublemaking behind me with my upcoming Adult Swim show, BLACK JESUS."

Amazon to Launch Free Streaming Service

Amazon is working on a free streaming media service as an alternative to its Prime Instant Video subscription, the Wall Street Journal reported on Thursday.

The new service would be ad-supported -- a departure from Amazon's current $99 Prime subscription fee -- and would likely include access to Amazon's original series and some of its library of licensed television series and films.

Amazon, helmed by CEO Jeff Bezos, is also planning on offering up free streaming music videos to its audience.

The service is expected to launch in coming months. Meanwhile, Amazon has invited media to attend an event in New York on April 2 where it is expected to announce plans for a streaming-video device similar to an Apple TV or Roku. Prime Instant Video is already available through devices such as Roku. An Amazon product would also provide access to that content and apps for other services such as Netflix and Hulu.

Amazon introduced Instant Video in 2011 as part of the slate of perks provided to Prime subscribers. The company recently upped the price of Prime to $99 a year from its original $79

Last year Amazon added to its Instant Video library with its first original series, Alpha House and Betas. The company recently streamed its second batch of pilots for free -- including a comedy Transparent from Jill Soloway (Six Feet Under) and supernatural drama The After from Chris Carter (The X Files) -- and is expected to announce its series pickups soon.

According to the report, Amazon is in talks to renew Betas as part of its free streaming service.

Amazon did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Gwyneth wishes her life was as easy as other working moms

Just a week before Gwyneth Paltrow and Chris Martin announced they were separating, the actress opened up to E! News about her plans for the coming year.

Paltrow, who just signed on as the new face of natural skin care line Restorsea, revealed that she's taking some time off to focus on her two children, Apple, 9, and Moses, 7.

"I just finished a movie in January that I was doing at the end of last year in London with Johnny Depp, and then I had two weeks here, and then I did a couple of episodes for Glee for the 100th episode," she shared with us.

"So I have to go back to mommy…I have a rule about one movie a year, so I can't shoot anything for a while, but I'm developing some material and working on the site [Goop] and raising kids."

The 41-year-old Hollywood A-lister also explained how it's trickier to maintain her film career now that her children are getting older.

"It's much harder for me. I feel like I set it up in a way that makes it difficult because…for me, like if I miss a school run, they are like, 'Where were you?' I don't like to be the lead so I don't [have] to work every day, you know, I have little things that I like and obviously I want it to be good and challenging and interesting and be with good people and that kind of thing."

She added, "I think it's different when you have an office job, because it's routine and, you know, you can do all the stuff in the morning and then you come home in the evening. When you're shooting a movie, they're like, 'We need you to go to Wisconsin for two weeks,' and then you work 14 hours a day and that part of it is very difficult. I think to have a regular job and be a mom is not as, of course there are challenges, but it's not like being on set."


Ray Rice Indicted For Felony Aggravated Assault On Fiancee

Ray Rice was indicted today by a grand jury for striking his fiancee in the elevator of an Atlantic City casino. The alleged crime was caught on surveillance video.

The Atlantic County Prosecutor's Office announced the Baltimore Ravens star will face one count of third degree aggravated assault for the February 15 incident involving Janay Palmer. That's a felony that could land Rice in prison for 3 to 5 years.

In the video Rice is seen dragging Palmer's limp body out of the elevator and it's unclear exactly what happened inside. Obviously, prosecutors felt their investigation gave them enough evidence to charge Rice. At the time of the incident, cops charged both Rice and Palmer with simple assault but prosecutors have now dismissed the charge against her.

Lawyer's Statement: I have been advised by the prosecutor's office that an indictment has been returned and again, we deny that he committed an aggravated assault. We don't think the law would support that he did. And we just ask the public to reserve judgment until all of the facts are out. Both Mr. Rice and Miss Palmer are together, they are happy and they're in counseling.

Ravens Statement: This is part of the due process for Ray. We know there is more to Ray Rice than this one incident.

One Direction 'Where We Are' Tour Could Be 8th Highest Grossing Ever

One Direction has shown no signs of fading away and they are currently on top of the music world. After the initial announcement of dates for their ‘Where We Are’ World Tour, the English-Irish boyband have announced additional dates, most of which are second shows in North American cities. Now totaling 69 dates, One Direction tickets for the upcoming world tour are in the highest demand of any major summer tour, ahead of both Katy Perry tickets and Eminem tickets.

Ticket sales aren’t the only place One Direction beat out Eminem recently. Data from the BPI confirmed ‘Midnight Memories,’ the band’s third album was named the best-selling album of 2013 despite not being released until November 25. Eminem’s highly anticipated ‘Marshall Mathers 2 LP,’ released November 5, finished second behind the album that sold over 4 million copies in just five weeks.

The boyband carries the momentum from record sales into the upcoming dates on the world tour, which is likely to continue setting records. When the tour was first announced, projections suggested the ‘Where We Are Tour’ could be a top ten grossing tour of all time. With the added dates in Toronto, East Rutherford, Foxboro, Philadelphia, Detroit, Chicago, Pasadena and Charlotte, ‘Where We Are’ projects to continue climbing that list, with a projected gross of $334 million. At an $88 average face price and an average of 55,000 in attendance for each show, the ‘Where We Are’ Tour could move between The Police’s ‘Reunion’ Tour and Rolling Stones’ ‘Voodoo Lounge’ as the eighth highest-grossing tour of all time.

Cracking the top ten is impressive with the limited number of shows, only Madonna has appears on the list with under 100 dates, but the band has the benefit of selling out stadiums rather than arenas like some of the other tours on the list. A majority of the stadiums have sold out, allowing One Direction to project as the second-highest attendance per show on the top ten list.

‘Where We Are’ kicks off at the end of April with 11 dates in South America. The tour then shifts to Europe through the middle of July before North American dates start on August 1. With the support of new teen-pop phenomenon 5 Seconds of Summer for the North American concerts, demand should be high enough for One Direction to eventually extend tour for a fourth leg and further creep up the top-grossing list. Demand was so great for the North American leg, especially for One Direction Rose Bowl tickets, two shows were added in Pasadena’s famous stadium while seven other cities were given one additional date.

There’s still a month before the tour starts, but at this rate the tour will be in historic territory by its conclusion. After the band sold the most albums during the year with only five weeks worth of eligibility, it would be no surprise to see the millions of One Direction fans push ‘Where We Are’ into the company of music’s elite.


Demi Lovato, Miley Cyrus End Friendship – On Twitter. Is It Over Eiza Gonzalez?


If you scroll through who Demi Lovato is following on Twitter, you might be surprised to find that her longtime friend, Miley Cyrus, is not one of them. Same with Cyrus.

So what caused the rift between these two former Disney starlets?

There are plenty of rumors. But a popular reason seems to be that the “Neon Lights” singer has started up a new friendship with Mexican actress Eiza Gonzalez, which Cyrus might think is a violation of the girl code.

Gonzalez, who famously hooked up with Cyrus’ ex-fiance Liam Hemsworth just days after their split last year, has been working alongside Lovato’s rumored boyfriend, Wilmer Valderama, on “From Dusk Till Dawn: The Series.”

And it seems like Gonzalez and Lovato, who is part Mexican, have struck up a friendship and have shared images of themselves on social media, according to El Mañana, a Mexican newspaper. And this apparently doesn't sit well with Cyrus.

But Lovato doesn't seem to mind.

According to KPopStarz, Lovato tweeted, “Ain’t nobody got time fo dat!!! #pettybulls --- #toobusykillingit #cutethough #NEONLIGHTSTOUR.”

She also tweeted, “You are who your friends are. You just have SO Much going for you!!!”

The tweets have since been deleted.

But others say the rift stems from Lovato being angry at Cyrus’ assistant, Cheyne Thomas, after she reportedly made fun of Lovato’s substance abuse problems on Instagram last December.

This bitch.

Psych Series Finale Review

When Shawn sat down in front of the camera, Real World-confessional style, your first reaction might've been to roll your eyes and expect some kind of game. Perhaps you wondered if it might be another cinéma vérité gimmick or some non-diegetic storytelling to fit everything the show wanted to say into an overstuffed series finale. After all, visions of the compact, rushed, and disappointing endings that befell shows like Pushing Daisies still make your heart ache, and Psych never did anything to deserve that kind of treatment. Why? Why would you do this to us, show?

I freaking love that show and am so sad that it ended, but it was for the best.

Cyndi Lauper: The media invented that rivalry with Madonna!


Lauper recently dished with Yahoo Music about the evolution of "Girls" from lothario's party song to feminist's call-to-arms, and she also discussed Madonna, Miley Cyrus, "American Idol," and why she never tires of singing "Girls" live.

At the time that "She's So Unusual" came out, you got a lot of comparisons to Madonna, who was coming up around the same time. How did you feel about that?

"The media invented that rivalry. We really didn't even know each other. We had a lot of friends in common, but we never really even met except for a few quick times at award shows. We both came out at the same time, we both were very into fashion, we were both very opinionated and demanded to be heard, but our music wasn't and isn't similar. They don't compare men who have successful albums in the same year, do they?"

You never seemed to use your sexuality to sell your music. It just wasn't part of your image. Were you ever pressured to sex it up more, especially since it was the advent of the MTV and the Madonna era?

"You know, I think it's pretty well-known that I really don't "do" pressure. I've always walked to the beat of my own drum, and that has worked for me — and I guess in some cases against me — but I wouldn't change a thing. I love art and fashion and making statements visually, so that is what I always focused on."


Kanye West Buys Kim Kardashian 10 Burger Kings

It's been reported that Kanye West has given fiancé Kim Kardashian the gift of 10 Burger King franchises to celebrate their upcoming wedding. The 10 locations are said to be spread throughout the United Kingdom, France and Italy. While the gift may seem a little farfetched, it might help to know that West has previously opened up a pair of Fatburger locations in his hometown of Chicago. Let's just hope Kanye makes another round of television appearances sometime soon so we can hear his reasoning for this one.

Taylor Swift buys huge duplex loft in TriBeCa for $20 million

Taylor Swift has purchased two duplex penthouses in a boutique building in the heart of New York's TriBeCa district.

The Real Estalker blog believes she is the mystery buyer of the units, previously owned by director Peter Jackson. Jackson listed the adjacent duplex penthouses, which cover the top two floors of the building, back in November for $19,950,000. The following month, he also listed the penthouses individually for $5.1 million and $14,850,000.

The smaller of the two units (2,440 square foot) has three bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms, with wide plank wood floors, exposed duct work, exposed brick walls, and a 12-foot beamed ceiling. The loft also boasts a 1,000 square foot private roof terrace. Listing details for the second and significantly more spacious penthouse show six proper bedrooms, 5.5 bathrooms, a coat closet lined foyer and grand double-height stair hall, and a 1,200+ square foot combination living/dinning room with fireplace, wet bar and a 12-foot exposed beam ceiling. There are two terraces on the upper floor that together encompass more than 2,100 square feet. The smaller, north facing terrace is private to the master suite and the much larger, wrap around one on the south end also has views to the east and west.

In the listing, Lara Nangle of the Corcoran Group urged the prospective buyer to do what Jackson planned but never did: combine both units into a duplex with a private multi-level wraparound roof deck. If combined, the result would be a 6,100-square-foot five-bedroom, five-bathroom duplex with a 4,000-square-foot private outdoor space and 1,900-square-foot two-bedroom, three-bathroom guest apartment with a separate entrance. "Because the lofts are adjacent, there is an opportunity for the new owner to carry out an internal reconfiguration/combination and roof terrace remodelling to create their dream layout, incorporating all their personal specifications and creating a spectacular roof terrace oasis."

Swift already has bases in Nashville and Beverly Hills. Last year, she purchased a beachfront summer home in Watch Hill, RI.

Logan Lerman: "Percy Jackson Franchise Is Dead"

Logan Lerman
won't be returning to the role of Percy Jackson in a third film based on the long running YA fantasy series of the same name. In fact, a third movie won't be happening at all. "It's not happening," Lerman said when MTV News asked about a threequel at the junket for Darren Aronofsky's upcoming biblical fantasy "Noah."

Lerman starred as the title character in 2010's "Percy Jackson & the Olympians: The Lightning Thief," as well as last year's "Percy Jackson: Sea of Monsters." The first two movies followed the title character, the demigod son of Poseidon as he survived the life of a hero-in-training at Half-Blood Camp while battling the forces of the Titan Kronos.

The award-winning "Percy Jackson: The Titan's Curse" would have been the next book in the series coming to the big screen — presumably in 2015 or 2016, if the pace of the first two films' release was continued — following Percy and his allies' attempts to rescue the goddess Artemis and Percy's long-time friend Annabeth from the clutches of their kidnappers.

"It's been a great experience for me," Lerman said of the role. "It's opened up a lot of doors for me, but I don't think it's happening."

aww :( i love the series and Titans Curse was supposed to be next and that is THE BEST BOOK in the series


James Lowe Speaks for the First Time About Dating Lorde: "I Couldn't Be Prouder"

They may never be royals, but Lorde is definitely James Lowe's Queen Bee.

The 24-year-old photographer has gotten a lot of press in recent months for dating the 17-year-old "Royals" singer, but through it all, he's stayed mum on their relationship -- until now, that is. In a new post on his blog, Ono Field, Lowe shares for the first time what it's like to be dating one of the most famous pop stars in the world.

"I've written, deleted, re-written, and deleted this post at least five times over the past few months, wondering when would be an appropriate time to start writing again," he explains.

"Since originally sitting down to write this post, Ella has become a two-time Grammy winner." (Lorde's real name is Ella Yelich-O'Connor.) "She has taken home a Brit too," he brags. "Currently she is on the opposite side of the world on tour. As much as I miss her, I couldn't be prouder of what she has achieved so far."

Feminist Leighton Meester talks beauty and female co-stars

Two years have passed since Leighton Meester said "byyyeee!" to Gossip Girl's awesomely conniving Blair Waldorf. During that time, the actress has given fans little to whisper about- she walks her dog with Adam Brody (whom she recently married in a paparazzi-free ceremony), she goes for coffee in face-obscuring sunglasses, she shows up at the odd premiere in impeccable frocks.

Meanwhile, she's been quietly banking four films to hit theatres this year, including The Judge, a murder mystery with Robert Downey Jr. and Vera Farmiga. She's working on her debut album, she landed her first part on Broadway-as the vampy wife in Of Mice and Men (April 16–July 27), co-starring James Franco-and she scored a beauty campaign. As Biotherm's latest global ambassador, she represents the brand's new Best.Skin line.

When we talk on the phone, it becomes clear that her beauty routine is similarly low-key. "I don't wear much makeup unless I'm working," she says, sounding far mellower than the bitchy Upper East Sider she's best known for. "Beauty is about lifestyle and attitude. If you do things that make you feel healthy, then beauty comes out of that." Easy to say for someone with anime eyes and pre-Raphaelite-calibre skin. Her minimalist face kit includes lip balm, moisturizer (Biotherm Aquasource) and fish-oil supplements.

Meester's anti-diva outlook is inspired, in part, by the impressive roster of actresses she's worked with, including Tina Fey in Date Night and Gwyneth Paltrow in Country Strong. "I felt comforted and inspired by these incredibly talented and kind women," she says. "People like Tina, Gwyneth and Vera, they show that you don't have to conform to the gender stereotype of women being competitive or petty with one another. It's beautiful to be lifted up by them."

Life Partners, a comedy that premieres at the Tribeca Film Festival this month, is likewise lady-empowering: Co-written by two real-life besties (Susanna Fogel and Joni Lefkowitz), it's a wo-mance of sorts. Meester plays a lesbian slacker whose straight, Type A best friend, played by Community's Gillian Jacobs, gets engaged. The story captures the awkwardness of integrating a boyfriend into a long-time BFF bond. "The movie doesn't make a big deal out of [the fact that I play a lesbian]," she tells me. "It's more about their friendship." Post-GG maturity looks good on Ms. Meester.

Nolan: Matthew McCona-slay is 'extraordinary' in Interstellar

Christopher Nolan says leading man Matthew McConaughey is ''extraordinary'' in new sci-fi movie 'Interstellar' and he was desperate to cast the actor after watching 'Mud'.

Matthew McConaughey is ''extraordinary'' in 'Interstellar'.

Director Christopher Nolan, who is notoriously secretive about his projects, has revealed he was desperate to hire the recent Oscar winner to star in his new sci-fi thriller - which co-stars Anne Hathaway, Jessica Chastain and Sir Michael Caine - after seeing him in critically acclaimed indie hit 'Mud'.

Nolan says McConaughey's performance in that film gave him an ''inside track'' regarding the actor's newfound success, including numerous accolades for his role in 'Dallas Buyers Club'.

The filmmaker told The Hollywood Reporter: '''Mud' showed me a side of Matthew's capabilities that I never knew was there. It was a transformative performance. From when I first saw it, I had an inside track on how great he could be.

''I needed someone who is very much an everyman, someone the audience could experience the story with. He's just a phenomenal, charismatic presence in the movie. His performance is shaping up to be extraordinary.''

Nolan also praised his regular collaborator Caine, who played Alfred in the director's 'Dark Knight' trilogy.

He enthused: ''He comes so prepared and he is just so good with such a minimal effort. I cast him in every film just as an example to everyone else.

''He's just a lovely guy to be around. He jokes that he's my lucky charm. It was a very good strategy on his part.''

The British filmmaker also revealed his policy when it comes to making movies, revealing he puts all of his efforts into the production at hand as if it's his last ever film.

Nolan added: ''I have always viewed every film as the last film I'm going to do. I've always done that because I want to put everything into it. I might get hit by a bus at the end of production.''

Watch: New Clip From "The Double"

"It was the idea of somebody so invisible & lowly that their double could appear and no one would notice; that was funny," director Richard Ayoade said during a recent Q&A about his forthcoming The Double. And indeed, the film's pleasures come from indulging in the absurdness of the scenario of a doppelganger emerging, consuming the life of his opposite, and no one being any the wiser except for the double.

Jesse Eisenberg and Mia Wasikowska lead the excellent ensemble for this one (that includes Noah Taylor, Wallace Shawn, Yasmin Paige, Cathy Moriarty and more), with their complicated relationship at the center of the movie. You see, Simon James likes Hannah, she barely knows he's alive, but she utterly falls for his duplicate, James Simon, a much more charismatic and successful individual. And so you have scenes like the one in this clip, where Simon is utterly baffled that Hannah is intrigued by a man who looks exactly like him, but is nothing like him too.

I wonder if any of Mia and Jesse's real-life conversations sound like this.

Andrew Garfield says "screw the critics" regarding The Amazing Spider-man 2

THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN has had critics ever since the announcement was made that a director other than Sam Raimi would be helming an adventure featuring the friendly neighborhood webslinger. Marc Webb, Andrew Garfield, and Emma Stone set out to create a more gritty and DARK KNIGHT-esque superhero film while also creating a darker and more conspiracy-centric origin for Peter Parker's superpowers. The results were box office gold while fans were lukewarm on the film. But, with the announcement that this summer's THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 will be followed by two more sequels and a slew of villain-focused spin-offs, fans began to worry that Sony would be oversaturating the market with Spider-man.

Then, the trailers came out showcasing a much brighter, looser, and CGI-friendly adventure in THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2. Gone is the gritty realism in favor of brightly colored comic book hues and tons of villains. But, will it work? Star Andrew Garfield thinks so and also has some choice words regarding the film. In an interview with IGN, Andrew Garfield addressed how they approached making THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2 after rebooting the series just a few years ago.

Liam Neeson - GQ cover story (full interview and photoshoot)

He is Lincolnian. The large head with that boxer's nose. The heavy brow. In fact, Steven Spielberg cast Neeson to play the part before it wound up in Daniel Day-Lewis's hands. But that's a story for later.

I meet him at his Manhattan office. Really a pied-à-terre. He lives north of the city. A big house near a small town in the country, where he is raising his sons. He's a single father now, ever since his wife, Natasha Richardson, died after a ski accident in 2009. But he keeps this place for meetings with people like me, or to, as he says, "sit and read and think."

Neeson has been acting since he was 11, when he took a part in a school play to impress a girl. That was in Northern Ireland. His first movie role was in 1977, when he played Christ in a movie produced by an American evangelist. The past thirty or so years, you probably know. Solid leading man, everything from The Phantom Menace to Gangs of New York. And of course Schindler's List. It was an Actor's Life. Then something strange happened. Neeson did a smallish film called Taken, now a franchise that has earned more than $600 million. At 61, he has become an action star.

In person, Neeson speaks with a bit of a brogue. He has small tics, like knocking wood after any hopeful comment. He will interject your name into an answer, like a good bartender. He also carries a supply of toothpicks, a habit since he quit smoking. After offering me wine, he takes a mug of tea and sits down on the couch. He places the toothpick box on the coffee table before us.

"All right, then," he says. "Let's have at it."

Shanley and Chris T from Are You The One do some interviews

1. They forgive their housemates for separating them.
On the show, Chris and Shanley both felt betrayed when the house separated them by voting Chris into the truth booth with Paige. Looking back, they both understand “hands down”—and likely would have done the same thing if the roles were reversed. “When you see two people that are just so quickly head over heels for each other and they’re doing things together all the time and talking about each other every day, I would for sure put them in the truth booth first, because you want to know, should we let this ride out or not?” says Chris. “It ended up being a great thing in hindsight, but not in the moment.”

2. Chris kept away from any funny business with Paige in the honeymoon suite.
After matching up with Paige in the truth booth and being sent to live together away from the rest of the house, Chris assured us there was nothing but respect between the two. “I made sure that Paige knew where I stood, and so space was respected and we’d spent a lot of time outdoors with Dylan and Coleysia. It was never really that awkward.” That aside, Chris was still able to understand why he and Paige were perfect matches. “There was a lot of stuff on paper that made perfect sense,” he says, “and it led to good conversations, but it didn’t feel right for me.”

3. Shanley and Simone eventually made up again…kind of.
Their big blow-out was a season highlight (for viewers, at least), but Shanley and the hotheaded housemate who called her out both did their best to patch up their friendship. “There’s an extended scene where Simone and I have a little heart to heart,” Shanley recalls. “We kind of did hash things out. We weren’t the best of friends again, but we weren’t going to be walking into a room glaring at each other.”

4. Reliving the moment on TV was not fun for Shanley.
Did you expect it to be? “I definitely cried watching it again, reliving how I felt in that moment,” says Shanley, and the world can sympathize. Meanwhile, the “older ladies” who work with Chris’s mom all e-mailed to express their condolences after Shanley’s breakdown. “I cried with her because that’s the first time I think I’ve ever seen somebody really love somebody on TV,” says Chris.

5. Nobody wrote anything down, like, ever.
Viewers at home might wonder whether there was an intricate system or chart for keeping track of which contestants might be potential matches, but alas, the roommates went paper-less. “You really remember things,” says Chris. “Every person threw some kind of cognitive idea together.” Shanley remembers Ryan “tried to step up and be the mastermind,” but ultimately, the house went with their mental tabulations instead of any type of formal log.
