Michael Phelps ends retirement


Michael Phelps is coming out of retirement, the first step toward possibly swimming at the 2016 Rio Olympics. The 22-time Olympic medalist will compete for the first time since the 2012 London Games at a meet in Mesa, Ariz., on April 24-26.

Bob Bowman, the swimmer's longtime coach, told The Associated Press on Monday that Phelps is entered in three events -- the 50- and 100-meter freestyles and the 100 butterfly.

"I think he's just going to test the waters a little bit and see how it goes," Bowman said by phone from Baltimore. "I wouldn't say it's a full-fledged comeback."

Kristin Chenoweth: What's In My Bag?



"I should be the 'What's In My Bag: Pharmaceutical Edition," jokes Kristin Chenoweth, who voices Gabi in Rio 2 (out April 11), with Us Weekly.

Lindsay Lohan relapses at Coachella despite vowing to stay sober



Oh no, it’s a case of history repeating itself as Lindsay Lohan’s been spotted drinking vodka at Coachella despite promises she’d stay sober.

The fallen actress was spotted backstage at the festival with sister Ali, with an onlooker saying she was handed a vodka soda by a friend.

"She looked completely out of it," the source told In Touch. "She couldn't stand up straight and she was frantically chain smoking cigarettes. In one of her hands she had a plastic cup with a clear liquid in it."

All pretty worrying considering she’s only been out of rehab for seven months.

It comes just a few weeks after Lindsay, 27, admitted she’d relapsed by drinking a glass of wine, saying visiting LA wasn’t good for her sobriety. Check out the video at the source.

‘Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.’ season 1, episode 18: Clips cement cruel choices



Two new sneak peeks from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 1, episode 18 make it clear that there is no turning back.

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 1, episode 18 will air at 9:00 p.m. this Tuesday, and that isn’t the only change on the way. As indicated by last week’s wild installment, reliable alliances appear to be a thing of the past as the show hurdles toward its season 1 finale.

The opening sequence of the episode, titled “Providence,” gives us a long, painful look at the depth of former-Agent Ward’s apparent betrayal. The sneak peek also features a look at an enigmatic enemy who has spent some time off the radar.

[Mild spoilers for tonight]



In the sneak peak, the Clairvoyant’s flower-obsessed associate Raina crafts paper blossoms in her S.H.I.E.L.D. prison cell. Upon hearing sounds of a break-in, Raina sits expectantly on her bed, but is shocked to see that Ward is her welcome wagon. Ward – wearing an expression cold enough to freeze mercury – gives her a gift from the Clairvoyant: a flower-patterned dress.

Things don’t go quite as well for Ward and the Clairvoyant (also known as Agent John Garrett) in the next clip from “Providence.”



In the second sneak peek, Ward and Garrett hit a snag while trying to infiltrate the Fridge – the S.H.I.E.L.D. guards refuse to allow them entry without verbal clearance from Agent Hand. That’s a problem, since we are absolutely like 98% sure that Ward murdered her last week. Even when a random helicopter starts firing on Ward and Garrett, the guards refuse to open the door.

Things don’t look peachy for the agents of Hydra at the moment. Still, we have an inkling that the bad guys will continue racking up victory points for a while longer in this game.

Check out the preview and promotional stills from Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. season 1, episode 18 for more information about what Tuesday’s episode will bring. The official synopsis for “Providence” introduces a new foe, and promises a wild ride.

With Colonel Glenn Talbot now on their trail, Coulson and his team seek refuge in the last place anyone would look, nobody would think to look at a SHIELD outpost? where they begin to uncover S.H.I.E.L.D.’s most dangerous secrets – secrets that could destroy them all.

Adrian Pasdar will make his debut as Colonel Glenn Talbot in “Providence.” Patton Oswalt will also appear as Agent Eric Koenig.

ABC will air last week’s episode, “Turn, Turn, Turn,” in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.‘s standard 8:00 p.m. slot. “Providence” will follow at 9:00 p.m.

Sky Ferreira: What It’s Really Like To Go On Tour With Miley Cyrus

Sky 3

Now 21, Sky Ferreira signed a record contract when she was 15, and spent her teenage years bouncing around the teen pop industry, dutifully trying on outfits and sounds, before finding her own voice on an excellent debut LP last year. She is as stubborn as she is sensitive, and after revealing how shitty she’s feeling, she carries on with her press day.

Days earlier, Ferreira played one of her last shows as the opening act on the U.S. leg of Miley Cyrus’ Bangerz tour, and there are still errant bits of glitter on her face. To supplement her music earnings, she has worked as a fashion model and brand spokesperson; on this day, her cheekbones are dramatically contoured and there’s a dangerous-looking bandage wrapped around her leg, protecting a big gash. Ferreira is based in New York, where she lives with boyfriend of a year Zachary Cole Smith, who fronts rock band DIIV. “It’s crazy, I guess it’s a serious relationship. Safe to say a lot has happened,” she said. She’s possibly referring to the duo’s September 2013 arrest, and how they’ve been compared to infamous lovers Kurt and Courtney.

If it had been up to an agent, Ferreira may not have been booked as the opening act on one of the biggest pop tours of the year. But it wasn’t — Ferreira opened at the request of Miley Cyrus herself. She spoke to BuzzFeed about why she and Cyrus became friends, how she powered through an early-tour injury, and what it feels like to play, with other women, for an arena full of girls.

Justin Bieber & Selena Gomez -- Coachella Canoodling



Even Justin Bieber's hideous hat choices can't keep Selena Gomez away -- the two got up close and personal at Coachella this weekend, despite the fact that Bieber was literally dressed like a newborn baby at the beach.

Wearing sunglasses and a bonnet, Bieber stood beside Gomez during Jhene Aiko's set on Sunday -- and we're told they were hanging together all day. At one point, we're told Selena was sitting on Justin's lap.

God talks all-time best finale, alternate endings and Better Call Saul



All Bad things must come to an end, read the tagline for the final season of Breaking Bad. And when the revered drug drama came barreling to a finish last September, creator Vince Gilligan, his writers, Bryan Cranston, Aaron Paul, and the rest of the cast sent off Walt in a machine-gun blaze of tragic glory — and it was good. And that’s no easy task. For EW’s “The Art of Saying Goodbye” story, which ran in the April 11 issue, we interviewed the masterminds behind 10 iconic series to discuss the formidable challenges of concocting the perfect farewell episode. Here, in a bonus Q&A, Gilligan — who wrote and directed the send-off, titled “Felina” — dishes on the process of crafting the last installment of the critically adored drug drama, provocative ideas for the endings that were abandoned, how the spin-off Better Call Saul factored into the plans, and his all-time favorite TV finale.

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: When did you first start thinking about the finale?
VINCE GILLIGAN:
It was glimmering in my brain somewhere in season 3, but I started to think about it more in earnest in season 4. The very design of Breaking Bad was that it was a finite, close-ended series. Most TV series are designed to go on forever or as close to forever as television allows, but from the get-go, Breaking Bad was designed to be finite, to express a continuum that was by its very definition finite: Our guy is a good guy and he becomes a bad guy. Of course, in the early days I really wasn’t thinking about the ending that much, because I was just feeling lucky to have a show on the air at all, so that feeling of great good fortune didn’t really wear off or become old hat until at least season 3. But in season 4, I was starting to think and my writers were starting to think that we should have an endgame in mind.

How many more seasons do we have? That was a question I began to ask in season 4. And it was the focus of a great deal of discussion starting in season 4, but there was not a great deal of clarity surrounding that discussion. All of my writers had a slightly different opinion — we had seven writers in a room and like eight opinions about when the show should end. Some people thought sooner, other people thought later, and we all had to keep in mind the idea that we didn’t want the show to end. Finding yourself on a show that’s appreciated by its intended audience is a very rare and lucky thing, so when you win the lottery like that, you don’t want to rush its conclusion; you want to keep it going as long as you can. But the thing that scared me more than anything was the idea of shooting past Breaking Bad’s expiration date, so to speak, and having people say, “Man, that show used to be good but it jumped the shark and hit its peak a long, long time ago.” That would have been the worst thing for me.

Cancer Patient Gets Her Miley Cyrus Wish Thanks to Philadelphia Flyers


twins

The Philadelphia Flyers Stanley Cup dreams may not come true but they helped fulfill the wish of Upper Merion twins Julia and Christa Rodriguez. On Sunday April 13, the 18 year olds were still reeling from the events of the last seven days.

A week prior, Julia started a social media campaign for Miley Cyrus to visit her twin sister who is battling cancer.

Their phones started buzzing with the news that due to the upcoming NHL playoffs, the Miley Cyrus concert — scheduled for April 22 — had been moved up a day. Christa could not attend its original date since her treatment is scheduled to start that day and she would have had to miss the concert.

“Our mom is a Flyers fan, however we aren’t really into sports,” said Julia. “Now we are very grateful that the Flyers made it to the playoffs because that completely changed our luck.”

They remained cautiously optimistic waiting for clearance from the doctors.

“We immediately had high hopes that Christa could possibly be able to attend the concert and we got excited,” said Julia. “Christa had an appointment with her doctor (Monday) morning and asked them about the concert. They said yes and we all became super excited.”

The New 'Friday the 13th' Movie Has a Director!



Genre veteran David Bruckner, who wrote and directed the “Amateur Night” segment of “V/H/S,” is in negotiations to direct the “Friday the 13th” reboot for Paramount and Platinum Dunes, The Wrap has learned.

Paramount had no comment.

Platinum Dunes principals Brad Fuller and Andrew Form are producing with Michael Bay.

While plot details aren't necessarily under wraps — expect a bunch of good-looking teenagers to die in grisly ways — it's unclear what approach Bruckner plans to take with the reboot, or how it will incorporate the Jason Voorhees/Camp Crystal Lake mythology.

It's also unclear whether “Friday the 13th” will employ a found-footage approach. If so, Bruckner would be a wise choice, as his “V/H/S” segment “Amateur Night” follows three guys who bring a mysterious girl back to their motel room, where terror strikes.

Bruckner previously co-wrote and co-directed the 2007 horror film “The Signal,” and he has also been working on the home invasion thriller “Intrusion” for producers Doug Davison and David Linde.

Paramount has already picked out the perfect release date for the “Friday the 13th” reboot — Friday, March 13, 2015.

We Want Pre-Nup: Southern Charm Edition

0415-thomas-ravenel-katheyn-dennis-getty-3

So much for reality television ... the 21-year-old star of "Southern Charm" who had a pregnancy scare on the show -- but said her test came back negative -- just had a baby.

Sources close to the show tell us Kathryn Dennis gave birth to a healthy baby girl 2 weeks ago -- the very day the pregnancy-scare episode aired on Bravo. And the baby daddy is her mega-rich 50-year-old co-star Thomas Ravenel. The hookup between Kathryn and Ravenel was one of the big storylines on the show ... but at the time, pregnancy tests showed Kathryn was NOT pregnant.

But after filming ended, we're told Kathryn and Ravenel began shacking up in Palm Beach, FL -- where they now live as a couple -- and Kathryn got pregnant for real.

Fun Fact: Ravenel is a former treasurer of South Carolina who was was forced to resign and served 8 months in prison ... after he was convicted in 2007 of cocaine distribution.

ONTD Prayer Circle: Miley hospitalized


In a release, Sprint Center said Cyrus is in a Kansas City-area hospital for a severe allergic reaction to antibiotics and would not be able to perform.

Cyrus has been battling an undisclosed malady illness since last week.

The release did not say whether the concert would be made up at a later date, but it said ticket holders could get refunds at the point of purchase. People who bought tickets online or on the phone would get automatic refunds.

In a tweet, Cyrus said "Kansas, I promise I'm as (heartbroken) as you are. I wanted so badly 2 be there 2 night. Not being with y'all makes me feel (worse) than I already do."

Cyrus, a former Disney Channel star, has been a polarizing figure since the promotional push for her "Bangerz" album last year. Her twerking performance with Robin Thicke at the MTV Video Music Awards last year garnered much criticism. She later appeared nude in a music video for her song "Wrecking Ball."

Despite the controversy, ticket sales on her current tour have been strong. She also scored huge ratings when she hosted "Saturday Night Live" last fall.

Cyrus also canceled a concert earlier this month following the death of her dog.

It's A Sports Post ! Patriots, Boston sports teams share #BostonStrong message + More













Tuesday marks the one-year anniversary of the Boston Marathon bombing, a terrifying event that reverberated all across the country.

#BostonStrong was a message throughout the entire year and it remains so on Tuesday: the Patriots, along with every single Boston-area sports team, all shared a message to the world via their respective Twitter feeds.

The bombings took place at a sporting event and there's at tie there, of course. But more than that, Boston's sports teams helped to unite the people of the area through common-shared experiences.

Whether it was the crowd singing along with the anthem at a Bruins game or David Ortiz inspiring with his profanity-filled speech before a Red Sox game, the people of the area were touched by their sports teams.

One year later, we're reminded of why.

Will Chelsea Handler Oust Craig Ferguson?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
The late night game of musical chairs is about to end — and David Letterman’s one-time protégé looks like he’ll be the one without a seat.

CBS’ “Late Late Show” host Craig Ferguson has lost his champion — Letterman himself — and faces an uncertain future.

“He’s not exactly in the driver’s seat when it comes down to negotiating (a new deal),” a source close to Ferguson told The News.

Ferguson is not likely to be back when his current contract expires in June 2015, sources said. But that contract has a clause that pays him as much as $10 million if he did not get Letterman’s job when the legendary comic retired.

Executives at the network said Ferguson wasn’t even considered to replace Letterman because the focus of his talk show is “too narrow.” They are also disappointed that it never became a ratings smash.

Ferguson’s show is part of a unique deal Letterman worked out with CBS shortly after he started at “The Late Show” in 1993 when the network was desperate to negotiate a long-term extension with the gap-toothed funnyman.

In what has been described as one of the most creative deals in television, CBS gave Letterman and his production company, Worldwide Pants, control of the 12:30 a.m. slot following “The Late Show.”

Worldwide Pants created “The Late Late Show” in January 1995 with Tom Snyder as the host. Snyder was succeeded in 1999 by Craig Kilborn, who was replaced in 2005 by Ferguson.

With Letterman out of the picture next year, Ferguson is negotiating with CBS instead of Letterman’s production company as he has in the past. And CBS isn’t negotiating back.

Instead, the network is talking to Chelsea Handler, the host of “Chelsea Lately” on E!, sources said.

How Lady Gaga Wasted 356,000 Gallons Of Water During Worst Drought In California History



Lady Gaga has come under fire for wasting drought-stricken California water — all for her latest music video shoot, RadarOnline.com has exclusively learned.

The five-time Grammy Award-winner recently shot the video for “G.U.Y.” — it features a medley of songs off of ARTPOP — at the historic Hearst Castle, a National and California Historical Landmark mansion located on the Central Coast of San Simeon, Calif.

Gaga, 28, utilized the iconic Neptune Pool at the famed estate, a perfect backdrop considering it offers an expansive vista of the mountains, ocean and the main house.

One source revealed that Gaga agreed to donate $250,000 to the Hearst Castle Foundation, whose mission is to help preserve and restore the Hearst Castle’s twenty five thousand artifacts, in order to have the pool filled with water from an on-site irrigation plant.

The pool had to be drained before the shoot because it was leaking 5000 gallons of water each day.

However, once Gaga had finished filming, the water — earmarked to be re-used for on-site irrigation at the state park — was discovered to be unusable, a source who works at the Castle told Radar.

“The water had to be chlorinated because Gaga got into the pool with synchronized swimmers,” the insider, who asked not to be identified, said.

“Since the water was chlorinated, it couldn’t be used for any of the irrigation or landscaping at the Castle. The water was simply drained and disposed of.

“It was a huge waste of water which is such a precious resource in California at the moment because of the draught.”


2013 was the driest year California had experienced in 119 years.

Britney Spears Ex-Manager (Sam Lufti) Loses Court Appeal, Ordered To Pay Conservatorship $121K

tumblr_mewjjskDnz1qkh06wo1_r1_500

The man who sensationally told a courtroom that Britney Spears used crystal meth and tried desperately to hide her alleged habit during her infamous head-shaving public breakdown in 2008 has been ordered to pay the pop star’s conservatorship more than $120,000 in legal fees, RadarOnline.com has learned.

Sam Lutfi, who was mother-of-two Spears’ former confidante and self-professed manager, lost his court case for libel and breach-of-contract in 2012 against the singer’s parents and her caretakers.

But, in a desperate bid to stay afloat, he had appealed the court’s decision on awarding fees.

Jay Z and Beyoncé are launching a stadium tour together after appearing as surprise guests at each other’s gigs recently.

Sources exclusively tell Page Six that hip hop’s royal couple plans to announce a 20-stadium US tour that will start in late June — and that it’s possible the couple could perform in New York on July 4.

The two recently wrapped individual tours that supported their latest albums: Jay closed out 52 dates for his “Magna Carta…Holy Grail” in January, while Bey wrapped her “Mrs. Carter Show” tour in March.

The couple has performed their hit single, “Drunk in Love,” together at a string of high-profile shows, including this year’s Grammy Awards, a DirecTV Super Bowl party and Beyoncé’s O2 Arena gig in London on Feb. 28.

On Sunday the hip-hop husband and wife each popped up onstage individually at the Coachella music festival. Beyoncé appeared with sister Solange Knowles to dance while Solange performed her hit “Losing You.” Jay took the stage with fellow New York rappers Nas and Diddy.

Aaron Taylor-Johnson Explains Why His Wife Didn't Cast Him in 'Fifty Shades of Grey'



Aaron Taylor-Johnson could've scored a private audition with Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor-Johnson. After all, the actor and the filmmaker have been married since June 2012. So why didn't Aaron try out for the role of Christian Grey, the wealthy entrepreneur with a BDSM fetish?

"I think it would have been the wrong kind of hype to bring toward us," the 23-year-old says in Nylon Guys' May 2014 issue. "It would have been kind of funny that this character that all these women fancy—he's one in a million—and my wife picks her husband to play the part? I would love to have done something together again, but it wouldn't have been Fifty. We were both on the same page."

Eight (Five) Predictions For The Marvel Cinematic Universe

Through years of planning and a chain of successes Marvel Studios has delivered films that both excel at the box office and please their fans. Unlike the other superhero movies, the Marvel Cinematic Universe has all these characters existing in the same universe and crossing over into each other’s films – this started with Iron Man back in 2008 and the standalone films led to the first Avengers film which saw these extraordinary characters team up.

Some Predictions:


Thanos will destroy Asgard

For The Avengers 3, it looks like we will get Thanos as the main villain. Most fans are guessing this and are pretty sure this is where the films are leading to. Thanos is due to appear in Guardians of the Galaxy and he may get to demonstrate his powers to the audiences for the first time. He will not however have his weapon – The Infinity Gauntlet.

Thor 3 is due in Phase Three, likely in 2017, and this will probably be the final Marvel film before the third Avengers. In order to show Thanos’ power, he should be shown to destroy Asgard. As we saw in Thor, The Infinity Gauntlet is safely locked up in the relic vault in Asgard. If Thanos is to utilize the power he will need to get hold of it. It would be great to demonstrate how powerful the character is by destroying an entire world that we have seen a lot of in both Thor movies. Having an entire realm destroyed by a villain would be a good reason to ‘Avenge’.Collapse )

Tilda Swinton on why she doesn't consider herself an actor

031214grand1

Tilda Swinton has always exuded an otherworldly aura. Maybe it's the pale, almost translucent skin that highlights her steely blue eyes. She speaks with such rabid intelligence that even a casual conversation sounds like it was scripted by Dorothy Parker. She seems impossibly tall, a willowy figure whose striking, androgynous looks have been tilted toward a wide range of menacing characters.

In Wes Anderson's latest fairy tale, "The Grand Budapest Hotel," the 53-year-old Scottish actress is virtually unrecognizable under droopy skin and wrinkles as octogenarian Madame D. In the just-released drama "Only Lovers Left Alive," directed by Jim Jarmusch, she portrays Eve, a chic-looking (if 3,000-year-old) vampire. And in June, she'll be seen Stateside in Bong Joon-ho's futuristic "Snowpiercer" as a terrifying political leader whose inspiration draws from equal parts Kim Jong-un and Marilyn Manson.

Her versatility as an artist makes her impossible to classify.

Along with a prolific screen career highlighted by an Oscar win in 2008 for her portrayal of an unraveling lawyer in "Michael Clayton," Swinton also performs spoken-word pieces, has founded a film festival (Scotland's Ballerina Ballroom Cinema of Dreams in 2008), and inspired a collection from Chanel.

Her best-known work might be "The Maybe," a live performance-art piece in which she sleeps inside a glass box wearing nondescript clothes and muddy sneakers, which she has been staging for 19 years in galleries and art museums around the globe, including MoMa in New York.

"Tilda is an artist, an activist, a film historian, an instigator and a writer," says Jarmusch, who has collaborated with the actress on three movies. "What isn't she? There is nothing she can't do, nothing she can't play."

Denzel Washington Side Eyes Hollywood Executives Who Offered Him Racist Role


If you thought you could not love Denzel Washington more, here is your chance to completely adore him!

In a Times Talk interview that we’re just catching, Washington claims he turned down the chance to act in a film despite providing him a hefty salary. Taking advice from a Hollywood icon, Denzel says Sidney Portier warned it would change his brand as an actor. According to Upworthy, Washington stated to the interviewer, the role and synopsis would only “perpetuate racism in the name of comedy.”


I got a part in a movie in 1986. I call it the “N****r They Couldn’t Kill.” [The character] He raped a white woman; they tried to electrocute him but it didn’t work and he became a cult hero. Then they tried to hang him. There were some Jewish people in the audition room who said “it is funny.” And I said to them “yeah, it’s like you bring some Jewish people into a room and they think it is a shower but it is gas. And they said “right!” And I said “Right! That ain’t funny!” So to me it was not funny to put a rope around my MFing neck and I made a point. I called Sidney (Portier) and told him “man they are offering me $600,000 to play the “N****r They Couldn’t Kill.” And he told me, “I’m not going to tell you what to do. But I will tell you this, the first, two, three or four films you do in this business will dictate how you are perceived.

'Mean Girls' celebrates 10 years as one of our generation's most iconic and quotable films




Regina George was dead wrong; “fetch” happened. “Mean Girls” was released 10 years ago and the word Gretchen Weiners attempted to make cool in the film is here to stay.

This month marks the 10-year anniversary of the release of “Mean Girls,” which made more than $129 million at the box office, became one of the most quoted movies of all time and nestled into the hearts of fans, where it has stayed for the past decade.

The film tells the story of Cady Heron (Lindsay Lohan), a junior at North Shore High School, a fictional high school located in Evanston, Illinois, who was previously home schooled in Africa by her zoologist parents.

In her first experience in a public school, Cady encounters the Plastics, or the mean girls to which the title refers, in the form of Regina George (Rachel McAdams), Gretchen Weiners (Lacey Chabert) and Karen Smith (Amanda Seyfried). The film also explores the friendship that Cady develops with Janis Ian (Lizzy Caplan) and Damian (Daniel Franzese) in their attempt to sabotage the Plastics for revenge.

“Mean Girls” maintains a large cult following, with fans ranging in all ages.

New international trailer for "Deliver Us From Evil" (semi-NSFW)

(it's Edgar Ramirez as a priest; what else do you need to know)



Horribly mangled corpses, a depressed police detective and a piano that plays itself -- these are only a few of the hair-raising supernatural instances featured in the upcoming film 'Deliver Us From Evil'. Adapted from Ralph Sarchie's novel 'Beware the Night', the film follows the story of a New York cop, played by actor Eric Bana, who is investigating a series of disturbing crimes. Directed by 'The Day The Earth Stood Still' director Scott Derrickson, the film is slated to release in July this year.

oh boy, those accents. But it's got Edgar and Joel and my darling Sean Harris, so I guess I am the self-appointed resident stan for this very serious art film.
