Chris Brown Taken into Custody by U.S. Marshals

chris-brown-5
Chris Brown is in federal custody, a spokeswoman for the U.S. Marshals confirms to PEOPLE, as the singer's latest legal troubles move to Washington D.C.

The federal authorities will transport Brown to the nation's capitol for pre-trial hearings in an assault case, NBC News reports.

Brown was in jail in Los Angeles after being ejected from a Malibu rehab facility on March 14 for violating the facility's rules.

The singer's lawyer, Mark Geragos, had attempted Tuesday to block his transfer into U.S. Marshal custody, claiming that it would inhibit him from conferring with Brown prior to the trial, the Los Angeles Times reports.

Geragos offered to transport the singer himself, but authorities removed Brown from his L.A. cell as the motion was filed, says The Times. The judge denied the request. Brown was taken to San Bernardino County jail, en route to D.C.

Brown, 24, was on probation in October when he got into a fight outside of the W Hotel in D.C. and was arrested on a felony assault charge.

The "Look at Me Now" singer had been sentenced to five years of probation, six months of community labor and a yearlong domestic violence class after being convicted for felony battery for the 2009 assault of Rihanna, his girlfriend at the time.

Unhappy 'How I Met Your Mother' fans petition for a new ending


Dissatisfied fans of How I Met Your Mother are campaigning for a new ending after the finale aired on Monday.

Despite earning a series-high rating of 12.9 million viewers, the final episode of the popular sitcom proved to be polarising for fans as a number of plot twists left viewers stunned by the show's conclusion after nine seasons.

Shortly after the finale aired, devoted fans started a petition on Change.org demanding co-creators Carter Bays and Craig Thomas to re-write and re-shoot the episode, simply stating, "You know it's just wrong."

Breaking: Lancôme Lands Lupita Nyong’o

lupitaaa

After starring in Miu Miu’s Spring 2014 campaign, it was only a matter of time before Lupita Nyong’o was scooped up by a beauty brand. The Oscar winner isn’t just undeniably gorgeous; she also pulls off every makeup look she tries on. And trust us, we’ve chronicled many of her standout maquillage moments—from purple lips, to gilded lids, to Cleopatra-meets-Audrey Hepburn eyeliner. In other words, French giant Lancôme nabbed more than just a one trick pony—Nyong’o has enough moves to fill an entire stable. Of her new appointment, the ambassadress said, “I am particularly proud to represent [Lancôme’s] unique vision for women and the idea that beauty should not be dictated, but should instead be an expression of a woman’s freedom to be herself.” We love an actor with range both on screen and off.

Amazing Unreleased Britney Music Not For Your Ears



Rebellion” producer, Jeff Dandurand, says there’s a lot of phenomenal Britney Spears “Blackout” tracks on the cutting room floor, and we probably won’t ever get to hear them.
In a long Q&A with fans on his Facebook, Dandurand says “Rebellion” won’t ever leak because the Britney Brand has its eyes on it never getting out.
“People want to keep coming at me about why or why not [it won't get released] and it’s not my fault. I really could give a fuck if I hadn’t been threatened by numerous litigation regarding it by label and associates. All I can say is when it all goes down, there’s only one truth that remains. I wrote a song that Britney Spears contributed and sang on. The rest is people’s own issues attached onto this steller moment in music. The label can fuck with it all they want, they lose us fans respect and make it harder for Brit to shine in the way she should at this point in her career. They have poisoned her creatively and an artistic force.”

James Franco’s Instagram Scandal: A Hoax To Promote New Film?



On April 1, two major things happened for James Franco — the official trailer for his new film ‘Palo Alto’ hit the web and he was accused of hitting on a girl half his age in NYC. In the film, Franco’s character is an older coach seducing a young girl. Is it ironic that these things happened on the same day?

Could James Franco be the ultimate prankster? The same day that he was allegedly hitting on a 17-year-old fan in New York, the trailer for his new movie Palo Alto hit the web. So, could it be that the incident with the young teen is just to promote the film that he plays a teacher seducing a student?

Kaley Cuoco Admits Boob Job At 18 Was ‘Best Decision’ She Ever Made



Hollywood stars look perfect, but they’re not always all natural. Kaley Cuoco, 28, admitted to the May 2014 issue of Cosmopolitan that she got breast implants while staring on the show 8 Simple Rules in 2004. She says she has never regretted the surgery, saying it was ”the best decision I ever made.”
Cosmopolitan‘s Fashion Director, Aya Kanai, praised Kaley for her courage: “Not only is she honest about all the wonderful and great things that she loves about her life, but she’s also open and honest about the things that she wanted to change.” Since we’re pretty sure most actresses have had at least some work done, I think it’s pretty cool that Kaley admitted this. It’s her body, her choice.

Glastonbury 2014 lineup: Kasabian, Pixies and Skrillex confirmed for bill

Festival organisers have added 87 names to the bill, handing headline slots to James Blake, Disclosure and MGMT, with places for MIA, Toumani Diabaté and Elbow.


Kasabian are to headline Glastonbury festival 2014, making their debut appearance at the top of the Pyramid stage bill on Sunday 29 June. The Leicester band are one of 87 names added to this year's lineup, which now includes Elbow, Pixies, MIA and Skrillex.

Although Saturday's Pyramid stage headliners are yet to be announced, there are plenty of big names among the new additions to the bill. Perhaps the most interesting of these is Pixies, who have not performed at Worthy Farm since 1989. The grunge pioneers are currently preparing to release their fifth album, Indie Cindy, which is also their first in 23 years.

Alongside Kasabian and Arcade Fire are several artists who headline stages for the first time. Skrillex will bring his manic take on dubstep and electronica to the Other stage after performing a variety of DJ sets at last year's festival. House and garage duo Disclosure will headline a night on the West Holts stage, while James Blake brings his hushed brand of dubstep to the Park. Elsewhere, MGMT headline the John Peel stage, while Richie Hawtin will occupy one of the top slots in Silver Hayes.

Lucy Liu and Jonathan Groff to announce the 2014 Tony Awards nominations


Looking star Jonathan Groff and Elementary actress Lucy Liu will announce the nominees for the 68th annual Tony Awards on Tuesday, April 29.

Both stars have a certified theater pedigree: Groff is well-known to theater fans for roles in Spring Awakening (which earned him a Tony nomination) and Hair, as well as on screen in Glee and Frozen (that little Disney indie you might have heard about). Meanwhile, Liu made her Broadway debut in 2010 replacing Hope Davis in the Tony-winning comedy God of Carnage.

The 68th Tony Awards, hosted by Hugh Jackman, will air June 8 on CBS, and if this season’s spectacular lineup is any indication, there will be plenty of packed categories to make for a genuinely heated awards race.

Watch the New Trailer for HBO's The Normal Heart

normalheart5
Yes, friends, that is Mark Ruffalo kissing on Matt Bomer's face

If you’ve never seen a production of The Normal Heart or read the play, do yourself a favor: turn off RuPaul’s Drag Race and go do so immediately. Playwright and activist Larry Kramer’s account of the early days of the AIDS epidemic in New York City is brutal, heartbreaking and filled with righteous anger.

Glee creator Ryan Murphy has taken over the reins of this film version of The Normal Heart, and from the looks of this trailer we could possibly have a new gay classic on our hands come May 25.

It’s got a lot of Serious Actors doing Serious Acting, sweaty early ’80s copulation, and Julia Roberts continuing her transition from America’s Sweetheart to Interesting Older Actress (we prefer the latter).

Take a look, and if you have any interest in gay history you’ve got to read the play. Now.

Snooki Expecting Baby #2



It looks like Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi will be taking her own pregnancy advice! The reality star, 26, and her fiancé Jionni LaValle are expecting their second child this fall, her rep tells PEOPLE.

“Jionni and I are so excited to confirm that we are expecting our second child! Now knowing that our test results are good and our baby is healthy, we can finally talk about it,” Polizzi wrote in an extended blog posted to her site Friday. The couple — who were engaged in March 2012 — are already parents to 19-month-old son, Lorenzo Dominic. Their nuptials later this year will proceed as planned.

“The wedding is still on as scheduled and it will take the apocalypse to change that,” she writes. We planned to have a second child before our wedding, and will indeed still be getting married in the fall of 2014. We are a committed family that will raise our children to be the best they can be and give them the best life we can give them.” “My whole perception of life has changed ever since I had my son,” Polizzi told PEOPLE in September. “I finally grew up into the woman my parents always knew I would be and I love it.”

But Polizzi won’t be alone in her pregnancy journey. Best friend, and Snooki & JWoww costar, Jenni “JWoww” Farley is expecting her first child, a daughter, in July. “YAY finally I can go shopping with [JWoww] for BABY GIRL THINGS! Lorenzo’s so excited!” Polizzi Tweeted after Farley’s announcement.

James Franco admits to trying to pick up teen; plays stupid



Actor James Franco stopped by “Live with Kelly and Michael” on Friday morning, and addressed the Instagram scandal involving him and a 17-year-old girl. He said somberly, “I’m embarrassed. I guess I’m just a model about how social media’s tricky. It’s a way people meet each other today, but what I’ve learned is you don’t know who’s on the other end. I used bad judgment and I learned my lesson.

The Oscar nominee continued, “Unfortunately, in my position, not only do I have to go through the embarrassing rituals of meeting someone, but if I do that, then it gets published for the world so it’s doubly embarrassing.”

The teen involved, Lucy Clode, was visiting NYC as an early 18th birthday present, and she met Franco at his Broadway show, “Of Mice and Men,” on Tuesday. She posted some pics and video of Franco outside the theater on Instagram (they have since been deleted).

The “This Is the End” actor has since responded to the scandal, denying he tried to hook up with Clode, writing, "I’M NOT! I HOPE PARENTS KEEP THEIR TEENS AWAY FROM ME. Thank you."

Franco first posted the message with a pic on Instagram, but later deleted the image. The link still remains on his Twitter account.

Julian Casablancas crashes Arcade Fire show wearing Win Butler bobblehead mask



The first rule of rock & roll: Never mess with another man's bobblehead mask. Last night, during their performance at Lollapolooza Argentina, Arcade Fire strode onstage wearing their usual papier-mâché get-ups, but an imposter – Strokes frontman Julian Casablancas – was hiding underneath the visage of Win Butler. "What the fuck is this?" Butler cried, pulling off the costume to reveal Casablancas in his signature leather jacket. "Not cool."

Of course, the goofy bit was all in good fun, as the band sets aside their fake anger and kicks off the show with the hard-hitting Reflektor track "Normal Person." Watch the whole clip above, with the unmasking incident around the 1:30 mark.

Ariana Grande Records Song Written by Harry Styles


Pop sensations Ariana Grande and Harry Styles have crossed paths!

Is there anything more exciting than some of our favorite pop idols coming together to create collaboration perfection?

Don’t worry, Directioners, Styles isn’t taking off on a solo career just yet. According to the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP), Styles has been busy penning new music — you know, somewhere in between debuting a new perfume, selling out a world tour and buying a home in sunny Los Angeles.

Along with a Swedish songwriter who also shares the writing credit, Styles is listed as a writer for a song whose title alone makes us swoon over the sweet choice of words: ‘A Little Bit of My Heart.’

Grande must have been taken by the British boy band member’s song as well, because she has since recorded ‘A Little Bit of My Heart’ and is now listed by ASCAP as its sole performer.

Jon Hamm (and his hair) promise fabulous time on '90s dating show



Long before Jon Hamm played the always-smooth Don Draper onscreen, he was trying to woo ladies on dating shows as a 25-year-old waiter. And there’s video to prove it.

Buzzfeed recently discovered that Hamm was once on The Big Date, a series in which a woman picks one of three bachelors after hearing their date ideas. On this episode, the lucky lady was Mary, who revealed to host Mark Walberg (not that Mark Wahlberg – if only!) that she has a foot fetish. Uh, okay.

Hamm was into the foot fetish thing, though, and even offered to indulge her desires in his date idea: ”Start off with some fabulous food, a little fabulous conversation, with a fabulous foot massage for an evening of total fabulosity.”

“Captain America: The Winter Soldier” is expected to rake in record dollars at the box office this weekend, but star Chris Evans still needs your help. He’s looking for a better title for his directorial debut, tentatively called “1:30 Train,” a placeholder name that he doesn’t like.

Evans describes the film as a cousin to Richard Linklater’s “Before Sunset”– it tells the story of a young woman (Alice Eve) who misses her train home and spends the night talking to a stranger (Evans) at Grand Central Terminal. He recently finished editing the movie-not-called “1:30 Train,” and expects that it will enter the festival circuit next year.

Orange Is the New Black author speaks on prison reform



On Tuesday night, Piper Kerman spoke to students in CEMEX Auditorium about prison reform and her 13-month term in a minimum-security women’s prison.

Kerman, the author of the 2010 memoir “Orange Is the New Black: My Year in a Women’s Prison” that subsequently inspired the popular Netflix television show “Orange Is the New Black,” opened the event with a personal account of her incarceration, followed by a discussion moderated by author and former prisoner Joe Loya, who corresponded with Kerman during her imprisonment. The night ended with a Q&A session with students and a book signing.

Shortly after graduating from Smith College in 1992, Kerman briefly became involved in an international narcotics operation. She was indicted for her crimes in 1998 but did not begin her incarceration in Danbury, Conn., until 2004 because of legal delays. She fulfilled 13 months of her sentence before being released early for good behavior.

Worse Than He Thought: FELONY PROSECUTION POSSIBLE


Chris Brown is en route -- a long route -- to Washington D.C. ... and when Con Air finally lands he could face the possibility of PRISON for the alleged D.C. assault.

Prosecutors just filed legal docs -- obtained by TMZ -- in which they say the reason they've taken the case to the grand jury is because they believe they have the evidence to support a felony prosecution.

Chris is currently charged with misdemeanor assault. His lawyer, Mark Geragos, has filed legal docs asking that the case be dismissed on grounds prosecutors misused the grand jury system by simply trying to get a dry run of the trial.

But prosecutors are now firing back ... saying the injuries were serious enough to require hospitalization on the part of the alleged victim, and that could justify a felony if they get more evidence.

Constantine TV pilot plot details revealed



Some new details have been revealed about the pilot episode of 'Constantine,' an upcoming TV series based on DC's occult detective.

Formerly seen in the 2005 film starring Keanu Reeves and directed by Francis Lawrence, the show promises to be considerably closer to the source material - in which, notably, the title character was blonde-haired and British (though this is not the only thing the film changed, not necessarily for the better).

The pilot episode is currently in production, directed by Britain's own Neil Marshall ('The Descent,' 'Doomsday,' and a notably epic episode of 'Game of Thrones') with Matt Ryan as the eponymous lead John Constantine.

'Captain America 2' Earns $10.2 Million from Thursday Screenings



Marvel fans came out in droves last night for Thursday night screenings of Captain America: The Winter Soldier, to the tune of a whopping $10.2 million, pushing the Phase Two sequel past $100 million worldwide. $1.2 million of that total came from 344 IMAX theaters.

Anthony Russo and Joe Russo's sequel eclipsed the Thursday gross of Thor: The Dark World, which took in $7.1 million en route to an $85.7 million opening weekend. However, it fell just short of the $15.6 million Thursday tally earned by Iron Man 3, which went on to gross $174.1 million in its first weekend, the second-highest opening weekend of all time, behind 2012's Marvel's The Avengers ($207.4 million). Captain America: The Winter Soldier also beat out Warner Bros.' Man of Steel, which took in $9 million on Thursday and $116 million for the three-day weekend.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier's worldwide total now stands at $105 million, and it seems to be a clear lock to break the April opening weekend record set by 2011's Fast Five, which earned $86.2 million over its first three days. The sequel opens in 3,938 theaters today.

Do you think Captain America: The Winter Soldier can break $100 million this weekend? .

4/11: Amy's Baking Co. returns on 'Kitchen Nightmares'


Gordon Ramsay's return to Amy's Baking Company in Scottsdale is on the docket for the "Kitchen Nightmares" season premiere on Friday, April 11, according to an updated schedule released by the Fox network.

Owners Samy and Amy Bouzaglo were supposed to get their second 15 minutes in late February, when they were to appear on two TV shows, "Dr. Phil" and "Kitchen Nightmares" but the episodes were postponed. A "Kitchen Nightmares" spokesman said at the time that the premiere was never officially scheduled. The couple maintained they influenced the decision.

Reached for comment, Amy said by e-mail: "Unfortunately right now we really can not say anything. But we can say that they have begun to realize that they have underestimated my husband and I, and our unwillingness to allow them to exploit us is becoming very clear."

The schedule for "Dr. Phil" has not been released.

The couple stirred up a social-media storm last year, after the May 10 airing of an episode that showed them yelling expletives at customers, taking tips left for servers and refusing to take any criticism from the host, British chef Gordon Ramsay. For the first time in the show's history, Ramsay ditched the restaurant owners before making any changes.

In its fifth annual ranking of America's worst bosses in 2013, eBossWatch, an online career site, put the Bouzaglos sixth on the list.

Michelle Williams Calls Out #PoorMichelle Hashtag: "That's Not What My Accountant Said!"


It appears Michelle Williams is less than crushed by the satirical site Poor Michelle.

Aimed at poking fun at all the moments she was shortchanged or overlooked by Beyoncé Knowles and Kelly Rowland, her Destiny's Child bandmates, the #PoorMichelle hashtag is used to share memes, videos, photos and silly tweets that illustrate all the times Williams got the short end of the stick.

There is even PoorMichelle.com, a blog dedicated to curating both images and videos that document the plight of DC3's sometimes underappreciated member. The posts are typically accompanied by a brief description of the specific offense against Williams, just to ensure you fully understand the moment of injustice presented.

Both Williams herself and Destiny's Child's fans have mostly embraced the site and hashtag as a harmless joke. But on Thursday, she offered her own take on the hashtag in a tweet on her account.

Chelsea Handler, CBS In Talks for Late Night Spot


Chelsea Handler is in talks with CBS for a late-night talk show, an individual close to the producer and E! talk show host told TheWrap.

CBS contacted Handler to discuss the potential of hosting a syndicated show in the wake of her announcing this week that she's leaving E! when her contract expires at the end of the year. But Handler has told CBS that she isn't interested in that option. As a result, CBS then expressed interest in considering Handler for Craig Ferguson's 12:30 a.m. slot.

She will be meeting with CBS Corp.'s chairman and CEO Les Moonves in the next few weeks to continue the discussions of joining CBS's late-night lineup, the individual said. But, Letterman's retirement announcement on Thursday has changed the landscape for her. Handler now has her eye on Letterman's “Late Show” spot instead. Either timeslot would make her the first-ever woman to host a late-night broadcast show since Joan Rivers’ short-lived late night show on Fox, which ended in 1987.

CBS declined comment to TheWrap.

Of course, she'll have to prove to CBS that she can break out of her niche audience and appeal to a more general audience for CBS to consider her for the spot.

A role with CBS is just one of the projects that Handler has been considering. Ideally, she wanted a weekly radio show on Sirius XM with a taped version of the show on Netflix, the latter of which she's already in talks with, according to the individual. (Netflix told TheWrap that Handler had not been in talks with her about a show.)

The insider said that she has also been approached by Jeff Zucker for CNN or HLN and by FX. But, again, the Letterman spot has changed things for her. It is now No. 1 on her list.

The CBS-Handler talks would also suggest that the network was at the very least entertaining a replacement for Craig Ferguson at 12:30 a.m. The “Late, Late Show” host reportedly has right of first refusal for Letterman's spot, although CBS may not want to give it to him.

Ferguson has been regularly falling to NBC's “Late Night” in recent years. When Jimmy Fallon hosted at 12:35, he topped Ferguson roughly five nights to Craig's every one. And since Seth Meyers has taken over, his version has more than doubled Ferguson's average rating in the Adults 18-49 demographic — though those numbers are inflated due to interest.

Simon Cowell lowers the age limit to 14 on The X Factor in the hopes of finding another, younger 1D

Simon Cowell has lowered the entry age this year for The X Factor to 14 in the hope of finding another, even younger, One Direction.

According to The Sun newspaper he is convinced that the next big thing could be a young star, or a young group.

The last time that The X Factor allowed such young contestants on the show was in 2008 when Liam Payne from One Direction made it all the way to the judge's house in Barbados before he exited the show. After that year the show's limit went up to 16 where it has remained until now.

A show source told the paper: 'Simon knows that young people make the best pop stars. (???????????????)

'He desperately wants another One Direction or Cher Lloyd and they were very young when they appeared on the show.'

There are some though who disagree with the age limit being lowered on the show and who would prefer if it was actually increased to 18 from the current 16.

Simon might indeed have a fight on his hands though with former judge Gary Barlow only one who has been highly critical of 16 as as an age that is still too young to be on the talent show.

'Sixteen is just too young to be in this competition with this kind of pressure,' he told contestant Luke Lucas back in 2011 at the judges' houses stage.

One of last year's contestants, then 16-year-old Tamera Foster, battled nerves throughout the show and ultimately was eliminated, but has subsequently been picked up and signed to Simon's record label at age 17.

Ayoade Adoration Association™ Post: Part Deux



The director of The Double (who puts the "A" in "AAA"), a Dostoyevsky adaptation that stars Jesse Eisenberg as a nervous man terrorised by his arrogant doppelganger, explains how the story taps into the dark side of the human psyche. (video interview)
"Darth Vader is Within All of Us" (The Guardian)

The funnyman who starred in television comedy The IT Crowd before becoming a director says there would "have to be an outbreak of influenza" for him to cast himself in one of his own projects. As for the fact he was once labelled the "coolest man in London" by NME magazine, that just makes him wince.

"I think that was a typo - it was the coldest man in London, the most emotionally distant man," says the softly-spoken 36-year-old, looking not unlike his IT Crowd alter ego Moss, in a brown suit, patterned shirt, dark tie and thick-rimmed glasses is constantly pushing upwards. He might be modest but Ayoade, whose film-making debut Submarine earned him a Bafta nomination and a British Independent Film Award for Best Screenplay, is clearly discerning about the work he takes on.

"I didn't think it would be possible to direct films at all. I hoped to write, and I guess that is still the thing I do mainly. This directing feels very unexpected," says Ayoade, the son of a Nigerian father and Norwegian mother. He studied law at Cambridge, despite knowing the degree was not for him.

Keith Olbermann's Tribute To David Letterman Is Great



Keith Olbermann is never better than when he's talking about someone he respects (perhaps because there aren't many of them). Last night was one such occasion, when Olbermann devoted an entire segment to David Letterman's announcement of his impending retirement. "All I keep thinking," Olbermann said, "is I'm watching Babe Ruth telling us he's going to stop playing baseball."

The metaphor gets drawn out further, and works to varying degrees. But there's no disputing that this is a heartfelt and surprisingly comprehensive summation of Letterman's career, culminating in an anecdote of Dave at his funniest and angriest best—that 2008 show when John McCain blew off the Late Show for Katie Couric, and Olbermann, as a fill-in guest, had the best seat to watch the evisceration go down.

Lucy Clode's Grandmother Disses The Lesser Franco Brother


Beryl Sussex, 84, is coming for you, James Franco! It looks like the Palo Alto star’s public apology on Live! with Kelly and Michael wasn’t enough to satisfy Lucy Clode‘s grandmother. In fact, Beryl is so upset about James hitting on her “sheltered” granddaughter that she is demanding that he be held accountable for his actions.

Beryl is livid after James blatently tried to seduce her teenage granddaughter via Instagram and text, even asking Lucy if he should get a hotel room for them.

“I think he ought to get a slap on the wrist and I know my son, Lucy’s dad, wouldn’t be afraid to give it to him,” Beryl tells MailOnline. “It shows how little these famous actors know about normal people and how to behave. They’re out of touch with reality.”

Beryl clearly feels that James has a responsibility as a public figure to respect his young fans and to not take advantage of them or his celebrity status.

“Lucy isn’t even 18. It’s bad enough a man of his age is approaching her like this, never mind a movie star. I really take exception to this,” she says. “I don’t know this actor, at my age we don’t keep up to speed, but it’s quite clear his behavior is not on. Lucy has lived quite a sheltered life, she comes from a respectful family. She isn’t one for the limelight at all.”

James, 35, decided to own up to his Instagram flirting scandal on Live! with Kelly and Michael on April 4 so he could “move on from it” as quickly as possible, a source close to the actor revealed EXCLUSIVELY to HollywoodLife.com.

“He wanted to do things the way Hugh Grant did when he confessed on Jay Leno years ago,” our source said.

In 1995, Hugh appeared on The Tonight Show with Jay Leno to talk openly about his arrest after being caught soliciting sex from a prostitute.

“He [James] was embarrassed but now in his eyes it’s over. He is a very trusting guy and that trust led him down a road where he got screwed over (lol) — but he wanted to speak up for himself, own it and move on,” the source added.
