Andre Leon Talley distracts Kim K to pick his nose

Former Vogue honcho Andre Leon Talley is definitely our pick of the week.

Talley dug deep during his interview with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West during Monday night's Met Gala ... and then touched the golden couple with his fool's gold.

It's unclear how much time passes before the dig and the touch, but Talley is clearly seen touching Kim's shoulder as he kisses her goodbye ... before using the same hand to shake Kanye's.

Kim did seem a little nasally after the interview.

Humanitarian & biracial butterfly Kim Kardshian shows support for survivors of the Armenian genocide



She recently confirmed she is yet to marry her fiance Kanye West.

But Kim Kardashian looked to be getting some practice in ahead of her imminent big day as she wore a cream Lanvin skirt with a dramatic train while attending an event in Los Angeles on Wednesday night.

The star teamed her impressively long skirt with a matching cream Balmain blazer and Alexander McQueen shirt as she showed her support for survivors of the Armenian genocide at the USC Shoah Foundation 20th Anniversary Ambassadors For Humanity Gala, also attended by US President Barack Obama.

Just two days after making her triumphant return to the Met Gala - where she more than made up for last year's floral disaster by wowing the crowd in a sexy blue and black satin custom Lanvin gown - the reality star was rubbing shoulders with the Obama.

Bruce Springsteen gets photobombed by Steven Spielberg

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

One is a Hollywood icon, the other a rock legend.

But it seems neither Steven Spielberg nor Bruce Springsteen is content to relinquish the spotlight.
Spielberg, 67, photobombed Springsteen, 64, and his wife Patti Scialfa, before the Boss got him back with a photobomb of his own, appearing in the background while Spielberg posed with his wife Kate Capshaw at the USC Shoah Foundation's 20th Anniversary Gala in Century City, California on Wednesday.

In the humorous snap, the famed Hollywood director is seen throwing his hands up in the air as he opens his mouth, while Springsteen and his wife of 23 years smile sweetly for the camera.

But Springsteen decided to get back at his pal with a photobomb of his own.

Daily Mail apologises and pays 'substantial damages' to JK Rowling


The Daily Mail has printed an apology to the author JK Rowling in which it states that it has paid her substantial damages over an article that claimed she had told a misleading "sob story."

The article, published on 27 September 2013, suggested she had falsely accused churchgoers of stigmatising her because she was a single mother. It was headlined "How JK's sob story about her single mother past surprised and confused the church members who cared for her."

The paper admitted liability in January, when it agreed to publish the correction and pay damages to Rowling. But the Mail disputed details of the settlement.

Last CRIMSON PEAK update for a while :(

CRIMSON PEAK, Sunday, May 4, Day 20: "Get some rest," everybody said on Friday morning. Well, I did. Fell asleep for an hour in the car on the way back to Toronto. Fell into bed at 11am. Woke up 3 hours later and grabbed some breakfast. Fell asleep again and slept for 22 more hours, waking up at 5pm Saturday! I was rested, but really bummed because I'd slept away my weekend, and now only had a little more than 12 hours left of it before going back to work on Sunday morning. Not much time left for anything fun or otherwise relaxing. But I got a little done, mainly eating and watching a bad movie, and then hit the hay again(!) at midnight. Got a decent night's sleep and was back at work at 7:45am. Exactly 48 hours off work, with 33 hours of it spent sleeping. Not bad.

Michael Musto Comes For Michael Alig

Image and video hosting by TinyPic


So you’re out, kid. May 5 was your release date after serving approximately 17 years for the killing of Angel Melendez, which you carried out with “Freeze” (a.k.a. your roommate, Robert Riggs, who’s already free) in one of the most heartless crimes of the decade. In some kind of drug-hazed fight, the two of you used a hammer, a bottle of Drano, a pillow and—the final prop—a box full of body parts, before you ran around crying victim and/or blabbing about what you’d done, knowing that your war-painted acolytes would protect their icon. Some party, huh?

You not only killed Angel, you basically murdered nightlife because, as Mayor Giuliani kept looking for ways to crack down on clubs so they became safe for tourists and community boards, you gave him every reason to put further restraints and make going out an exercise in constantly looking back to see who’s watching your every move. In fact, you made it very uncool to go out at all, especially dressed with any flamboyance, because the association was with a hateful, grisly act of violence that was substance-fueled and totally demented. It was years until people were able to dress up and laugh again, and if you find the nightlife still a little too restrained when you reenter it, you mainly have yourself to blame!

“The Lion King” (1994)

Zimmer won his only Academy Award for the animated Disney film and, while he didn't write the songs (those were by Elton John and Tim Rice), he did create an evocative, authentic-sounding score of African chants and percussion with the help of South African singer Lebo M. Only later, after recording it with a large choir and orchestra, did he understand how personal it was: “I never thought about my father dying, and writing a big requiem for my dad. I didn't get it, until suddenly (with the film and score) there I was.”

Stop what you're doing because something incredible has happened and it involves One Direction looking hot, sweaty and cuddling up to each other for some ridiculously bromantic photos.

Yep, the lads have been making the most of the Rio de Janeiro stop of the Where We Are Tour and even managed to sneak out for a bit of sightseeing. Naturally their first stop was the whopper of the Christ The Redeemer statue that hovers above the South American city and they even managed time to take a few snaps to send home to the 1D mums.

Bringing along their film crew, the lads caused a bit of a stir when they rocked up and whipped out their cameras ready to take a load of selfies with their main man Jesus. The pouts aren't the only things we would've liked them to whip out, but we suppose that might've been a bit inappropriate in front of Jesus and all.

James Franco to Play Tommy Wiseau In His Feature About the Making of 'The Room'


Earlier this year the news dropped that James Franco would be directing and producing a film about the making of what many would say is the worst feature film ever made, Tommy Wiseau‘s The Room. Based on The Disaster Artist: My Life Inside The Room, detailing actor Greg Sestero‘s account on the production of the film, we wagered that Franco himself might take the role of the director, but nothing was confirmed, until now.
Stopping by the Opie & Anthony Show, Seth Rogen revealed that Franco is looking to play Wiseau himself and had much more to say about the production. “This won’t be an expensive movie,” Rogen laughs. “I saw it like 10 years for the first time, like right when it came out. I had just moved to LA and there would be billboards for it and ads and stuff like that. I remember I saw it with Jonah Hill actually, randomly, and then we became obsessed with it, like it was the greatest f*cking thing we had ever seen.”Collapse )

Ayoade Adoration Association™ Post VI



The Double is based on Fyodor Dostoyevsky’s 19th-century novella of the same name, though Ayoade and his co-writer Avi Korine (brother of Harmony of Spring Breakers notoriety) have taken the tale in a different direction after the introduction of the mysterious doppelgänger, from “schizophrenic descent” into an exploration of loneliness and invisibility. “The thing that we liked about the story is that the two look identical, but everyone for some reason just likes the other one,” Richard Ayoade ♥ explains. “They always would pick the other one. If they both told a joke, they would laugh at the other one even if they said it in exactly the same way. That was part of the nightmarish aspect of it — there’s no reason. His manifestation is about Simon’s state.”

Landing a big, crowd-pleasing punchline doesn’t seem like a pressing concern for Ayoade, for whom cult classics have been something of a specialty. The London-born, Cambridge-educated writer, director, actor, and comedian was one of the forces behind Garth Marenghi’s Darkplace, a terrific and terrifically strange British horror comedy series that pretended to be a never-broadcast ’80s show finally being aired and intercut with present-day interviews with the cast members. The single six-episode 2004 season built up a devoted following online.
Inside The Mind Of The World’s Coolest Film Geek

Similar to his excellent 2011 debut feature, “Submarine," quick comparisons to past classics have flown frequently with Richard Ayoade’s sophomore effort “The Double." This time Terry Gilliam’s “Brazil” has been elected the overriding influence; however, don’t ask Ayoade to verify such a claim. As the actor/director said when he sat down with us recently in Los Angeles, “I don't remember ‘Brazil’ well enough to even know whether that's true.”

We called Ayoade’s pitch-black comedy “special and singular filmmaking at its best” when we caught it at TIFF last year, and you can watch our festival interviews with both Ayoade and Wasikowska to gain insight into the origins and production of the project. But as “The Double” hits theatres this week, we thought we’d ask the director to graciously run down a few of his actual influences for the unique project.

Anti Gay Activists Get Their Flop Show Cancelled From HGTV


Twin brothers David and Jason Benham have lost their opportunity to host their own HGTV show.

The brothers ran afoul of the network after the site Right Wing Watch published a post about the pair, labeling David Benham as an "anti-gay, anti-choice extremist" for reportedly leading a prayer rally in 2012 outside of the Democratic National Convention held in Charlotte, North Carolina.

The site posted a recording of Benham talking to a talk show host about "homosexuality and its agenda that is attacking the nation" and "demonic ideologies" taking hold in colleges and public schools.

Benham also discusses the fight for North Carolina's Amendment One, which involved a ban on same-sex marriage and civil unions in the state constitution.

Is Lady Gaga a hypocrite for her "Slay" tour shirt?



For "only" $40, you can be the proud owner of a "YAAASS" or a "SLAY" t-shirt from Lady Gaga's ARTRAVE tour. But does Gaga's use of the word "slay" reveal a deep hypocrisy regarding her attitudes towards her fellow pop divas, like Katy Perry and Beyonce?

Gaga tweeted back in November - around the time when Perry's Prism was crushing ARTPOP in sales - that music was not a competition, and that fans who used the word 'slay' are "not standing beside [her]." What do you think?

Despite starring in two ongoing blockbuster franchises, Jennifer Lawrence worries fans will get sick of her. “Nobody can stay beloved forever,” the “Hunger Games” and “X-Men” star says in Marie Claire’s June issue. “People are going to get sick of me.”

But it’s her off-screen escapades she worries about.

“I’m way too annoying because I get on red carpets and I’m really hyper, most likely because I’ve been drinking, and I can’t not photo-bomb somebody if it’s a good opportunity,” she muses.

“It’s something I always tell myself: ‘You need to calm the [bleep] down. You don’t want to constantly be a GIF.’”

The first show of Katy Perry's highly anticipated world tour took place last night at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast, and the pop star provided the kind of out-of-this-world costumes and jam-packed energy that fans are used to getting at a Katy Perry show.
But with such a performance, one can get pretty thirsty. So Katy decided to have a beer while on stage.
During the concert, she had a beer rise up from under the stage along with a guitar, an eyewitness tells E! News. Perry couldn't remember what kind of beer it was, so she joked that it started with a "T" for Tinder, and then looked around the stage for someone over the age of 18, and handed the beer to a male fan after she took two big sips.

‘Mama’ Director Doesn’t Want ‘The Mummy’

the-mummy-1999_31571370579844

Universal is proud of its monsters – from the classic horror pictures with Boris Karloff and Claude Rains to recent reboots with Hugh Jackman and Brendan Fraser. The original THE MUMMY first rose from his tomb in 1932 and over the course of two decades the studio got several instalments out of the tightly-wrapped menace. That ended with ABBOTT AND COSTELLO MEET THE MUMMY in 1955 before writer/director Stephan Sommers created an Indiana Jones-inspired series in 1999 that saw DARKMAN star Arnold Vosloo take the title role.

That franchise ended with the belated whimper of THE MUMMY: TOMB OF THE DRAGON EMPEROR by which time Sommers had jumped ship. UNDERWORLD’s Len Wiseman was attached to a revival, but when he bailed also MAMA director Andy Muschietti came aboard. Like Wiseman he was lured by the prospect of bringing the character back with a darker angle but now he too has opted to close the sarcophagus.  It’s thought this is due to Universal wanting to take things in a more family-oriented direction, so it could be a case of “I hate Mummies!” all over again.

It’s not a great sign when two directors of differing styles abandon a project, but when two of the producers – Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci (STAR TREK INTO DARKNESS)  – split up also you can’t help but wonder if some variety of ancient curse is at work. I should point out that the Kurtzman/Orci separation is unrelated to Muschietti’s and they will continue to work together, just not on movie productions.

The new script for THE MUMMY is by Jon Spaihts (PROMETHEUS) and relocates the scenario to modern day. How will an ancient Egyptian priest fare in the 21st century? It could well be the subject for a comedy, but Universal are banking audiences will be petrified enough for a new wave of creature features – another version of VAN HELSING is planned, the last of which showcased a maniacal multi-pack of Dracula, Frankenstein and Dr Jekyll & Mr Hyde.

It’s a gamble to see if such traditional fare can compete with the likes of INSIDIOUS and PARANORMAL ACTIVITY. 2010′s THE WOLFMAN with Benicio del Toro was a great homage to the golden era but was generally a disappointment. With the spectre of DRACULA 2000 looming from the bargain bin of the DVD shop, the modernized Mummy has some big, bandagey shoes to fill.

Miley Cyrus' Tour Reels In High Fashion's Finest

Miley Cyrus' tour just got a high-fashion makeover thanks to a few very stylish London audience members.

For the first of Miley's 7 UK shows, British super Kate Moss headed down to the O2 Arena with BFF Nick Grimshaw to watch the former Disney star work and twerk the stage in her very skimpy (and very bejazzled) tongue-print leotard.

Well, it was only a matter of time before Mossy and Miley became acquainted.

While Kate's gig outfit comprised of her usual off-duty staples (a cropped jacket, skinny jeans and a cool sequinned top), it wasn't long before the 40-year-old Topshop designer fully immersed herself in Miley mayhem as she hopped backstage for a quick Cyrus-themed outfit change.

Posing for an Instagram snap with the spotlight-stealing songstress herself, Kate is seen sitting on the floor with party pals Grimmy, Pixie Geldof and Henry Holland, sporting one too-cool piece of Miley merchandise in the form of a huge logo sweater.

'Gotham' showrunner breaks silence: child actors are better than Bale -- EXCLUSIVE


The man behind next season’s most anticipated new show is breaking his silence onGotham. Showrunner Bruno Heller recently sat down exclusively with EW to discuss Fox’s hugely ambitious Batman prequel series. Below Heller answers the burning questions fans have wondered about Gotham since it was first announced last year, and makes a few bold claims along the way: All those Batman films? Heller says Gotham will exceed them in terms of visual style. His very young Bruce Wayne? Gotham‘s actor is better than any who have previously played the character, he claims. Comparisons to other superhero shows? Here’s why Gotham’s approach is superior.


Heller has a track record to back up his confidence. The British writer-producer’s first series was HBO’s acclaimed Rome, which paved the way for sweeping historical and fantasy dramas on cable. His second was at the opposite end of the stylistic spectrum, and a popular hit: CBS’ procedural The Mentalist, which has run for six seasons. Still, Gotham is a show built around Det. Jim Gordon (Southland‘s Ben McKenzie) and the nascent Batman villains, rather than the caped crusader himself. Will fans accept this alternate vision of Gotham City? Will the show (trailer below) be a police procedural or serialized? And will Heller attempt to rebirth The Joker? Read on

Lifetime Adapting 'The Red Tent' With Rebecca Ferguson, Minnie Driver & Morena Baccarin



A ‘White Queen,’ an alumna from ‘Homeland’ and ‘About a Boy’s leading lady are all heading to Lifetime for a bible-themed miniseries.

Rebecca Ferguson, Minnie Driver and Morena Baccarin will star in the small screen two-night adaptation of Anita Diamant’s 1997 best-selling novel, ‘The Red Tent.’ The project also stars Iain Glen and Will Tudor, both from HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones,’ in addition to Debra Winger (‘Terms of Endearment’).

The four-hour mini, which begins filming this month in Morocco, follows Dina (Ferguson), the daughter of Leah and Jacob. Even though only mentioned briefly in the Old Testament, this series will focus on Dinah’s happy childhood spent inside the red tent, a place where only women of her tribe are allowed to gather and share the traditions and turmoil of ancient womanhood.

It will be told through Dina’s eyes, where we’ll also see the story of her mothers Leah (Driver), Rachel (Baccarin), Zilpah and Bilhah, Jacob’s (Glen) four wives. We’ll also see Jacob’s relationship with each of his wives.

Eventually, Dina weds a prince, resulting in a fall out with her murderous brother Joseph (Tudor). As for Winger, she’ll play Jacob’s mother.

“‘The Red Tent’ brings premium and popular elements to a unique and timeless story,” said Lifetime EVP Rob Sharenow. “It perfectly articulates our vision for Lifetime as the destination for epic movie events.”

‘Law & Order’s Roger Young will direct the miniseries, with Elizabeth Chandler (‘The Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants) and Anne Meredith (‘Secrets of Eden’) penning the script.

Ryan Gosling Makes Rare Red Carpet Appearance, Cleverly Suggests He's Still Dating Eva Mendes

ryan

Ryan Gosling made a rare red carpet appearance at a screening of White Shadow at the San Francisco International Film Festival.

Gosling dressed way down for the event, sporting a pair of worn-in jeans, a black T-shirt, leather bomber jacket and some seriously sexy scruff.

But it was one accessory on Gosling that was front and center which caught everyone's attention: his necklace. The 33-year-old wore a chain with two silver rings and one pendant with Eva Mendes' dog's name written on it. Hmmm…if that's not a coy suggestion that he's still romancing his The Place Beyond the Pines co-star than we don't know what is!

While there have been reports that the two may have parted ways, considering that they haven't been spotted together in recent months, neither actor has addressed the rumors directly. However, on Feb. 9, Gosling was snapped driving his gal's SUV in Beverly Hills. And during an appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show that same month, Mendes laughed off the chatter that she was no longer dating the heartthrob.

"I'm not a big Valentine's Day person," she admitted to the show host when asked about her plans for the holiday. "I'll probably just order a deep dish and watch The Notebook or something. Just cry, weep."

For what it's worth, gluten is composed of the gliadin and glutenin proteins and is responsible for the elasticity of dough. Research has found that one of the better-known forms of gluten intolerance, celiac disease, affects 1 in every 141 people in the United States.

Cannes: Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel Join Adaptation of Patricia Highsmith's 'The Blunderer'



Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel, Imogen Poots and Toby Jones have joined an untitled film based on a novel by acclaimed mystery writer Patricia Highsmith.

The psychological thriller is produced by Killer Films' Christine Vachon and David Hinojosa, along with Ted Hope and Sierra Pictures. The film is slated to begin production later this year with Andy Goddard directing.

Sierra Pictures will finance the film, which was adapted by Susan Boyd from Highsmith's 1954 novel The Blunderer. The story, set in early 1960s New York, follows Walter Stackhouse (Wilson), a successful architect married to the beautiful Clara (Biel) who leads a seemingly perfect life. But his fascination with an unsolved murder leads him into a spiral of chaos as he is forced to play cat-and-mouse with a clever killer (Jones) and an overambitious detective while at the same time lusting after another woman (Poots).

Sierra/Affinity's Nick Meyer, Marc Schaberg and Kelly McCormick are executive producing with the company also handling international sales at this year’s Cannes Film Festival; CAA is handling domestic sales.

The Man Who's Everywhere is in Interview Magazine



Drones & Dragons

"I guess I was a child actor," admits 33-year-old Dutch actor Michiel Huisman. Holland, however, is not Hollywood, and Huisman, who grew up in and just outside of Amsterdam, assures us that his early start in the film industry didn't get him any special treatment. "Acting was one of the things I did alongside going to school: I'd be playing guitar, I'd be playing soccer, and I would be acting in movies," he explains. "Because Holland is so small, it was never considered a career."

Liam Payne and Harry Styles get tango lessons in Argentina



It takes two to tango: Harry Styles and Liam Payne look thrilled to get a sexy dance lesson on stage at a show in Argentina

When it comes to performing, One Direction singers Harry Styles and Liam Payne are pretty much in their element.
So it might come as little surprise that the 20-year-old handsome hunks got up on stage to get an impromptu dance lesson after watching the Rojo Tango show in Argentina.
The Sun reports that the boys were taught the tango by a couple of saucy dancers, who looked incredible in white Strictly Come Dancing style dresses which had splits going up the leg.

Wearing his beloved brown trilby hat with a casual black jumper and his favourite dark grey skinny jeans, Harry looked like he was having a ball as he asked the dancers to show him some moves.
The true gent was pictured swirling his dance partner around and giggling as she led the way on the dance floor in front of a group of onlookers.
In one comic moment, the heart throb was seen lifting his leg up in the air while one of the male dancers clung onto it.

Liam also looked to be having fun and posed for a picture while a pretty brunette dancer kicked her leg up at him.
The band have been making the most of their time away and have been cramming in as much sight-seeing as possible while in South America.
On Wednesday, they visited famous statue Christ the Redeemer and looked like they were having a blast.

Mel Brooks on the N-word and Being Politically Correct


For those of you who haven't seen the movie, shame on you. Stop reading and go indulge. It's so much more than a hilarious joke-a-second spoof of Westerns, it's also a scathing indictment on the idiocy of racial prejudice. It's the rare film that manages to be both highbrow and lowbrow at the same time. And on its own terms.

"They can't make that movie today because everybody's so politically correct. You know, the NAACP would stop a great movie that would do such a great service to black people because of the N-word," says Brooks. "You've got to really examine these things and see what's right and what's wrong. Politically correct is absolutely wrong. Because it inhibits the freedom of thought. I'm so lucky that they weren't so strong then and that the people that let things happen on the screen weren't so powerful then. I was very lucky."

With a new 40th anniversary Blu-ray edition dropping this week, we got Brooks on the horn to talk all things "Blazing Saddles." In his inimitably frenetic style, Brooks recounted how Richard Pryor gave the filmmaker license to use the N-word, even though he couldn't get Pryor cast; how Gene Wilder stepped in to save the film; and why "Blazing Saddles" should be considered the single greatest comedy of all-time.

10 (5) Best MARVEL COMICS Stories of All Time



Well, when we ask, you answer, that’s for sure. With the news of Marvel crowd-sourcing stories to include in a 75th anniversary omnibus, we asked you what your top three favorite Marvel stories of all time were. And you answered in droves.

While some people struggled with just including three (we only took your first three when you did that, figuring they were the first ones that came to mind), we got about 200 comments in the first two hours or so of posting. We took the votes with one point assigned to your third place choose, two points for second place, and three points for first. This is by no means meant to be a scientific poll (far too low a number of votes counted, some possibility of repeats, etc.), and while it does seem to largely represent one era, there is enough diversity to see stories fans have loved from the 1960s all the way through to just a handful of years back.

Beyonce Dubbed A Terrorist By Scholar bell hooks


Yesterday, The New School in New York City hosted a panel discussion with legendary Black feminist bell hooks, author and activist Janet Mock, filmmaker Shola Lynch and author Marci Blackman.

As per normal, when black women congregate, Beyoncé Knowles-Carter becomes the center of their conversation. As their discussion unfolded and developed, the Beygency was almost called to escort and erase the identity of bell hooks, as the author and professor made controversial statements about the “Flawless” singer in regards to her effect on young girls and visual media.

To start things off, the women spoke on Beyonce’s controversial TIME cover with the singer dressed in an undershirt and underwear, an image hooks said Beyonce has control of.


“Let’s take the image of this super rich, very powerful Black female and let’s use it in the service of imperialist, white supremacist capitalist patriarchy because she probably had very little control over that cover — that image. “

Dean McDermott Gives Wife An Anniversary/Sorry I Committed AdulTori Ring



The traditional eighth wedding anniversary gift is bronze, but it appears Dean McDermott was aiming for something a little sparklier and more high-impact when it came to celebrating his milestone with wife Tori Spelling.

McDermott, who completed rehab after cheating on Spelling last year, gave his wife a vintage ring with multi-colored stones from Neil Lane (as he has done in past years). The hand-engraved, Renaissance-inspired ring is set in 18-carat gold with pear-shaped sapphires, square-cut rubies and greenish yellow peridots.

“Dean wanted to keep tradition and celebrate their anniversary and ‘love story’ with a very special, beautiful ring set in gold — and this one is really cool with lots of color,” Lane tells PEOPLE. “He loved the multi-color and he wanted gems. It’s very stylish and different. He wanted to get a really special jewel, something meaningful –he wanted to show up for Tori with a beautiful ring.”

Apparently the gesture helped thaw some of the chill between Spelling and McDermott. “Dean seemed really excited to give her the ring,” Lane says. “And he texted me and said Tori was thrilled, that she loved it. He said it was her favorite ring of all the years!”

Perhaps it’s a step in the right direction for the troubled pair, whose marriage woes are currently being aired publicly on Lifetime’s True Tori. “[Doing this show], Tori is showing Dean that she’s willing to stay married,” says an insider. “But she’s not going to make it easy for him.”

From appearances at least, it appears as if the strained relationship is slowly but surely repairing itself. McDermott was spotted shopping at Victoria’s Secret this week and Spelling joined him for an intimate sushi dinner at Katsuya on Wednesday night, their actual anniversary.

“I don’t think Tori truly wants to get divorced,” the insider says. “She’s doing whatever she thinks will help her get through this.”

The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby Now Three Films



Ned Benson‘s The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby was first screened at the Toronto International Film Festival last fall, to hooting, hollering, and an air of general acclaim. So when this year’s Cannes Film Festival unveiled its lineup and Eleanor Rigby made the cut, I doubt anyone’s eyes were boggling out of their head, Tex Avery cartoon-style.

Except for one pesky detail that made absolutely zero sense. On the official Cannes documentation, Eleanor Rigby is marked with the running time of one hour and fifty-nine minutes. Confused? You should be — not only is Eleanor Rigby not two hours long, but it’s not even one movie.

The Bachelorette's Emily Maynard: 4th Engagement Is My Last



Even though she had agreed to tie the knot three times before, Emily Maynard tells PEOPLE her fourth engagement to automotive management consultant Tyler Johnson "is my last. I really mean it. I'm actually making it to the marriage part this time!"

Once unsure about what her future would hold, the former Bachelorette star says that sharing her life with Johnson "is everything I've been praying for for years."

The two recently bought a home in Charlotte, North Carolina, and have begun furniture shopping in anticipation of moving in over the summer.

The couple is also eager to start adding to their family unit of three humans, "three dogs, a cat, some fish – it's a zoo here," Maynard says with a laugh. "I've got to have a baby soon!"

Carey Hart Denies Wife P!nk Is Pregnant With Penis Joke



Well, looks like Pink isn't pregnant after all!

After reports circulated that the 34-year-old singer was pregnant with their second child—all because she was spotted with her husband, Carey Hart, "cuddling" and "rubbing her tummy”—the 39-year-old motocross pro took to Twitter to dispel the rumors with a rather crude joke. "Oh man, i was rubbing my penis yesterday, does that mean my d--k is pregnant?" Hart tweeted on May 8 in response.

As for his wife, Pink stayed mum but did tweet a series of rather cryptic messages on Wednesday, May 7. "It never fails: people will think you're crazy- but usually only when you're on to something good ;) do what makes YOU happy," the "Just Give Me a Reason" singer posted. Pink then followed with another equally confusing tweet: "It crazy: record deal. Ur crazy: missundaztood. U crazy: marry mr hart. This is crazy: TBD etc etc."

The couple are currently solely proud parents to 2-year-old daughter Willow.

A rep for the couple does not comment on their personal lives.

The Shailene Woodley Uproar Shows We're Getting Celebrity Feminism All Wrong



A collective groan echoed across the lady blogosphere on Monday, when young actress Shailene Woodley joined the ever-growing ranks of celebrities who don't understand what the word feminist means. When Time asked Woodley whether she considers herself a feminist, the Divergent star replied, "No because I love men, and I think the idea of 'raise women to power, take the men away from the power' is never going to work out because you need balance."

The Internet has been quick to point out the errors in Woodley's words (for starters, feminism doesn't involve hating men or raising women above them), but this incident highlights more than Hollywood ignorance: The obsessive vetting of female celebrities' feminist credentials is another way in which high-profile women are subject to more exacting expectations than their male peers.

Unknown desperate indie act tries 2 come for the Queen Of Pop™







As the self-appointed ambassador of online kindness, Lady Gaga is known for keeping it cute on Twitter. Which makes the fact that she just fired shots at Katy Perry in a shady subtweet all the more remarkable.

It looks like green hair and mechanical horses are the thing now,” tweeted Mother Monster in a thinly veiled reference to her rival’s Prismatic tour, which launched in Belfast yesterday (May 7).

To put things into perspective, Katy rocks a fluro-green wig in the show and also rides a mechanical horse. So what? Well, Gaga arrived at last year’s American Music Awards on a white steed and she briefly rocked the same hair color for a shoot with Terry Richardson. Someone really needs to tell the ARTPOP diva that she didn’t invent hair dye or stage props.
