"I took her for granted" Michael Douglas opens up about split from Catherine Zeta Jones


THEY recently put on a united front to prove that their marriage is stronger than ever.

And it seems romance is still alive for Michael Douglas and Catherine Zeta-Jones, despite the couple calling it quits on their marriage last August.

Michael, 69, has admitted time apart from his 44-year-old Welsh wife made him realise he "took her for granted".

The pair's 14-year union was said to have been put under strain by his tongue cancer diagnosis and Catherine visiting rehab for bipolar disorder.

Final Fantasy XIV Will Allow Same-Sex Marriage After All

Collapse )
Quoting from a translator here, Yoshida said that upon the arrival of the 2.4 patch, "people within Eorzea will be able to pledge their eternal love and or friendship in a ceremony of eternal bonding. And this will be open to people regardless of race, creed, and gender. Two players...if they want to be together, in Eorzea, they can—through this eternal bonding ceremony."

"We discussed it," Yoshida added, "and we realized: within Eorzea, why should there be restrictions on who pledges their love or friendship to each other? And so we decided to go this way."

The team is also considering things like "special mounts that only people who pledged their love and friendship can ride."

And with that matter settled, they started talking about the possibility of adding a dueling system.

Well there you have it. Now was that so hard, Nintendo?

Memories of JFK Jr. and the heady days at 'George'


NEW YORK – In 1995, John F. Kennedy Jr. introduced the world to his new political magazine with the memorable words, "Ladies and gentlemen, meet George."

Then, with a smile and a flourish, he unveiled the first issue, featuring Cindy Crawford in a powdered wig and men's colonial garb (and a taut bare midriff), posing as the father of our country.

Matt Berman, who oversaw the sexy Crawford cover shoot, was the magazine's young creative director. Now, nearly 15 years after Kennedy died in a plane crash at age 38, Berman is looking back at those heady days and recalling his friend in a new memoir, JFK Jr., George & Me (Gallery Books).

First look at Disney's "Descendants"

Disney’s iconic characters are living out their happy endings in Auradon, a present day idyllic kingdom. All defeated villains have been exiled to the Isle of the Lost, a remote island where they must spend their remaining days isolated from Auradon’s modern-day luxuries. Time passes, and the teenage son of King Beast and Queen Belle is poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making descendants of the villains stuck on the Isle of the Lost. The teenaged kids of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Jafar and Cruella de Vil are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the teenage progeny of iconic Disney heroes. The villainous parents see this as an opportunity to use their children to carry out an evil plan that will finally free them all from the Isle of the Lost. Will these evil teens follow in the footsteps of their wicked parents?

Queen + Adam Lambert debut "Love Kills" live @ iHeartRadio Theatre

Queen + Adam Lambert embark on their first U.S. arena tour this Thursday, June 19, but on Monday night at their iHeartRadio Live show streamed on Yahoo Screen, 400 lucky fans got a preview of the tour, at the much more intimate iHeartRadio Theater in Burbank. And there, they were treated to a massive surprise on the new Queen setlist: "Love Kills."

"Love Kills" is a relatively obscure song, but Queen fanatics definitely know (and love) it. It was late, great original Queen frontman Freddie Mercury's first song recorded as a solo artist, and was featured on electronic music legend Giorgio Moroder's soundtrack for the 1984 rerelease of Fritz Lang's classic 1927 silent film, Metropolis. While the track wasn't necessarily well-received at the time (it was actually nominated for "Worst Original Song" at the 1985 Razzie Awards), it did make it to No. 10 on the U.K. singles chart, and it went on to become a cult classic.

According to Queen's publicist, Queen never performed "Love Kills" live with Freddie, who died in 1991. Freddie never performed it solo, either. But almost 30 years after the song's release, Queen members Brian May and Roger Taylor debuted a live version at the iHeartRadio Theater, with Adam Lambert singing lead.

'Bachelorette' Andi Dorfman Will You Please Accept This Resignation?


The Fulton County District Attorney’s office is NOT getting a rose from "Bachelorette" Andi Dorfman ... because TMZ has learned she has decided not to go back to the job.

As TMZ first reported, Fulton County D.A. Paul Howard Jr. allowed Dorfman to take an unpaid leave to do the show ... as long as she was back by May 31.

The Fulton County D.A.'s office tells TMZ ... Andi did not want to ask for an extension on her leave, so she decided to resign instead. The D.A.'s office had nothing but good things to say about her ... even going as far as saying they would be open to re-hiring her if the opportunity arises.

Koming Soon: Kim Kardashian, the Video Game


It looks like Kim Kardashian is going to have a video game of her own. Tuesday morning (June 17), the reality TV star Instagrammed two snaps: one of her laying down vocals in a studio, and the other of a cartoonized version of herself. Both of them use the hashtags #ComingSoon #KimKardashianGame.

I can only imagine the concept of the game, but it’s not surprising Kim would get animated. The 33-year-old, along with her famous sisters, has her own fashion line, reality show, books, perfume and even baby clothes. All she’s missing is a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

Kim Kardashian And Beyonce’s Former Nannies Speak: Reality Star Accused Of Dissing Blue Ivy


Kim Kardashian and Beyoncé may not be the best of friends, but they do have at least one thing in common: nannies who love to share dirt on their former employers.

In the June 30 print edition of Life & Style magazine, people who claim to be former employees of Kardashian, 33, and Beyoncé, 32, dish what it was like to work for the A-list stars and care for their offspring — and it isn’t pretty.

While Kardashian may have invited Beyoncé to attend her recent nuptials to rapper Kanye West, “insiders” close to the “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” star claim she has previously scorned Beyonce's 2-year-old daughter, Blue Ivy in comparison with her own North West, 1.

“She brags that Nori is cuter than Blue Ivy,” one source told the tabloid. “She loves it.”

ICON & QUEEN of the charts Jennifer López -AKA (now on iTunes!) Mom- is a STAR onstage and at home!

NEW YORK — In a spacious, stylish apartment across from Chelsea Piers, a 6-year-old girl sits contentedly curled up in a chair, oblivious to the fact that a reporter is in an adjacent office, waiting to interrogate her famous mom.

The girl, whose name is Emme, begins to hum. Her voice is sweet and clear, which shouldn't be terribly surprising, given that both her parents — Marc Anthony and Jennifer Lopez — are professional singers. When Lopez crosses the apartment, a friend's home, into the office, Emme follows and bounces into her mother's lap. Complimented on her unwitting performance, the girl smiles shyly.

"She has a very pretty voice, with vibrato," Lopez notes. "But it's funny, she doesn't like to sing in front of anybody. You're lucky."

Malia Obama's Summer Job Is Better Than Yours


Some teens will spend the summer flipping burgers or lifeguarding at the community pool, but first daughter Malia Obama hung out with Halle Berry on the set of Extant.

The Wrap reported that Obama was seen last week working as a production assistant on the set of the CBS summer series, a Gravity and Alien sci-fi drama featuring Berry readjusting to life on earth after a year alone in space. Obama helped with computer shop alignments and slated a take, according to a source. Being a production assistant is actually pretty boring, but a New Yorker profile of President Obama earlier this year revealed that Malia's "an aspiring filmmaker," so this is almost like a not-famous person applying for an internship.

Really? Keira Knightley Says Fans Often Mistake Her For Britney Spears

The 29-year-old actress is definitely a well-known face, having appeared in everything from Pirates of the Caribbean to Anna Karenina, so it's difficult to see how people would fail to recognise her.


Speaking on The Graham Norton show about her celeb lookalikes, Keira said that people most often think that she's Natalie Portman "and I get chased through airports."

Emmy Watch: Read 'Grey's Anatomy' script for Burke and Cristina's final confrontation

Leading up to the June 20 deadline for Emmy voters to submit nomination ballots, EW.com is featuring interviews with some of the people whose names we hope to hear when nods are announced on July 10.

Separately, Sandra Oh and Isaiah Washington are powerful — but together, they’re undeniable. And when you add in words from the writers of Grey’s Anatomy, you’re just about guaranteed an unforgettable moment.

In what we named one of the year’s 50 Best TV Scenes — find the whole list in the Entertainment Weekly issue on stands now — Preston Burke and Cristina Yang finally talked about the moment that shaped both of their lives: the day he left her at the altar. Their chat was seven years in the making, as Cristina finally got some closure from the man who had broken her seemingly unbreakable heart.

On The Run Tour Ticket Sales Moving Slow?

Could it be the Solange beatdown or this alleged mistress talk that’s got fans not buying?

According to Showbiz 411:
“Tickets are selling slow as molasses for the Jay Z-Beyonce “On the Run” tour of stadiums that’s set to start in 10 days.
Right now, there are over 11,000 tickets in motion on StubHub for the couple’s July 11th show at MetLife Stadium in the Meadowlands. Several more thousand are available for the second show, on July 12th.

Even on Ticketmaster.com’s own system, a quick check shows a very bald stadium, with lots of tickets for sale and official resale. Right now, getting to see the first couple of modern R&B is pretty simple. And relatively inexpensive.
All told, Beyonce and Jay Z are going to play 17 stadium dates in the US and two in Canada beginning June 25 in Miami. But right now, tickets are available in every city and at every price.

Taylor Kitsch Makes Directorial Debut With 'Pieces'; attends Stanley Cup Finals

PiecesTrailer from Andrew Wheeler on Vimeo.

Taylor Kitsch is in an unusual position, and he knows it.

Unlike a majority of the directors of films set to screen at the Palm Springs International ShortFest, which opens June 17 and runs a week at Camelot Theatres, Kitsch’s film, Pieces, has already had an offer to be made into a full-length feature film.

Most directors can only hope for that to happen.

But they’re not Kitsch, who just recently finished appearing in The Normal Heart, an HBO-movie based on the 1980s Larry Kramer play about the early struggles of the AIDS epidemic. The role has helped elevate Kitsch’s stature once again after two films (John Carter, Battleship) fell flat. Kitsch may be best known for his TV role as Tim Riggins on Friday Night Lights from 2006-11.

“We've been offered $5 million to make (Pieces) into a feature, and I'm lucky, too,” he says. “I know what situation I'm in and being an actor, and being lucky enough to get certain things or people come up to me.”

But he’s not sold on the idea, which is why he’s coming to Palm Springs and bringing his cast with him for the June 21 premiere. Kitsch has shown the film to friends in the business he trusts, but he wants to see for himself how the film plays out in front of an audience.

Rupert Grint to make Broadway debut in 'It's Only a Play'


Another Harry Potter star is coming to Broadway.

Rupert Grint, best known for playing Ron Weasley in the blockbuster Harry Potter film franchise, will make his Broadway debut this fall in Terrence McNally's starry comedy It's Only a Play.

Grint joins an A-list cast that includes Matthew Broderick, Nathan Lane, Stockard Channing, Megan Mullally, F. Murrary Abraham and newcomer Micah Stock. Jack O'Brien will direct the limited 17-week engagement, which opens at Broadway's Schoenfeld Theatre on October 9.

The British star will play Frank Finger, the wunderkind director of a new play by an anxious writer (Broderick) whose career is on the line as he eagerly awaits the reviews on opening night. As the show roars onward, the playwright passes the time with his TV star best friend (Lane), his producer (Mullally), the show's leading lady (Channing), an infamous critic (Abraham), and a fresh-faced coat check attendant (Stock). The play first premiered in New York in 1986 at the Manhattan Theatre Club; the 2014 production is a newly revised adaptation by McNally, the four-time Tony-winning scribe whose recent premiere Mothers and Sons marked his 50th year on Broadway.

On the theater acting front, Grint followed up the smashing success of the Potter films with his West End stage debut in the revival of Jez Butterworth's Mojo (alongside Skyfall's Ben Whishaw and Downton Abbey's Brendan Coyle).

Grint's Potter co-star Daniel Radcliffe recently returned to Broadway in The Cripple of Inishmaan, but their stints on the New York stage won't overlap (Radcliffe's engagement ends this July).

Is the World Ready to Stop Judging Lana Del Rey?

Today Lana Del Rey releases Ultraviolence, her second full-length studio album, and despite the A Clockwork Orange–inspired title, it arrives in a more placid world than her first. Nowhere to be found are the nasty takedowns from the first go-around; the anti-Lana ringleader hipsterrunoff.com hasn’t been updated since November; plastic surgery and the origin of her name are no longer popular topics of water cooler gossip. Leveler-headed arbiters seem to have prevailed.

Somewhat counter-intuitively, corporate sponsorship was the only way she could shake off those original accusations of selling out. Little more than eight months after the January 2012 release of her first album Born to Die, she was at an H&M party, standing on a makeshift stage in the lower Manhattan night club The Wooly. Wearing a little black dress, she sang the cover “Blue Velvet” that had been commissioned by the giant Swedish fashion retailer. She proceeded to star in the TV commercial the brand hired Johan Renck to direct, and pose for the fall print advertising campaign shot by Inez and Vinoodh, and then the Holiday campaign photographed by Sølve Sundsbø.

Kanye West Charms Cannes With His Moral Take on Brands and Culture Plus, what he thinks about Apple'


CANNES, France—Kanye West was roundly ridiculed last year when he likened himself to Steve Jobs in a New York Times interview. But the rapper is very much like the late Apple founder in at least one respect: He is obsessed with good taste, and frames his pursuit of it in deeply moral terms.
For Jobs, that meant battling the evil mediocrity of Microsoft and producing beautiful tech products that, in his view, raised humanity to a higher level.

West wants to do much the same thing in music and fashion. And for him, it's about joining with a few likeminded friends and battling mediocrity across the entire culture, online and off, he said Tuesday during a surprise appearance at Cannes Lions festival here.

A year after an ailing Lou Reed praised West's genius on the very same stage, West flew in as a late addition to Translation's seminar, titled "Technology, Culture, and Consumer Adoption: Learning to Read the Cultural Landscape." Welcomed with rapturous applause by the crowd at the Palais, West was in rare form—laughing, interrupting, ruminating and charmingly holding forth on everything from brands to web design to the Apple/Beats deal.

'Game of Thrones' finale: Peter Dinklage, Charles Dance on [SPOILER's] killer instinct

Spoilers from Sunday’s Game of Thrones finale: It was the perfect Father’s Day episode of Game of Thrones: Tyrion kills Tywin, the unloved son executing his cold-hearted, calculating father as he sat on the most ignoble throne of all. It’s a move that will change Tyrion (Peter Dinklage) forever — and one that eliminates Tywin (Charles Dance), one of the show’s strongest characters.

We spoke with both actors about the finale scene very briefly last year. Dinklage said Tyrion went up to confront his father because he “can’t leave without some closure.”

“He doesn’t know what’s going to happen,” added Dinklage. “He understands the force that Tywin is, so I think he’s smart enough to know that there are consequences for going up there. But he can’t leave without something. He needs that closure. No matter what it is, he needs something. Maybe he’s going to get killed, but he just can’t leave yet.”

Tyion then pulls the trigger on his father after the patriarch repeatedly calls a Shae “whore.” “Tyrion is grief-stricken about what he just did [to Shae] and Tywin doesn’t give a sh–,” Dinklage said. “So that’s the finger that fires.”

Dance is one of several actors on the show who read only the scripts, not George R.R. Martin’s novels. He says he only learned his character’s fate last season. “Someone in the street came up and said, ‘You got this great death scene,’” Dance recalls. “And I said, ‘Have I? What was the manner of my death?’ And then he told me, and I said, ‘Oh, right!’ So then I went into a bookshop and a grabbed a book and I said, ‘Oh, I see.’ It’s quite spectacular.”

The Kardashians Struggle to Keep Up as Reality Show's Ratings Continue to Drop

The Kardashians are back, but are they better? Viewers might finally be tiring of the reality clan's animated antics, because the once popular E! reality show Keeping Up With the Kardashians is going down — at least when it comes to the ratings.

Numbers for the kickoff of the second half of the show's ninth season were down following last week's new episode, leading veteran showbiz blogger Nikki Finke to proclaim, "The Kardashians are krashing."

The second half of the ninth season of KUWTK debuted on June 8 with an episode called "Let It Go," but it definitely didn't channel the popularity of the mega blockbuster Frozen, with only 1.1 million viewers in the 18-49 demographic. And that's even with Kourtney's latest baby news. (She announced she's expecting her third child with longtime love Scott Disick on the episode.)

Arctic Monkeys, FF, Adele, The xx videos 'to be removed from YouTube'

Artists including Arctic Monkeys and Adele face their videos being removed from YouTube. The site is set to begin a "mass cull" of videos by artists on independent record labels due to their refusal to sign up to new licensing terms, reports the Financial Times.

YouTube are introducing a tiered system, including a new subscription service, as part of their existing apps and websites. Users choosing to pay a monthly fee will be able to watch videos and listen to music without adverts, even when they're offline.

The company, which is owned by Google, will begin blocking videos that don't comply with the new terms from the site "in a matter of days", according to Robert Kyncl, YouTube's head of content and business operations.

YouTube will begin internally testing the new format within Google in the coming days. Kyncl asserts that 90% of record labels have signed up to the new terms, while the remaining 10% will be blocked from the platform.

He said, "While we wish that we had 100 per cent success rate, we understand that is not likely an achievable goal and therefore it is our responsibility to our users and the industry to launch the enhanced music experience."

Collapse )

YouTube currently attracts over a billion monthly visitors. Kyncl failed to go into detail about the new contractual terms.

Musician Billy Bragg has already criticised the move, saying: "I don't know why they've opened this hornet's nest right now, apart from corporate hubris. I don't think they realise what a stupid thing they've done."

The royal couple face backlash over ‘cruel and tacky’ decision to pierce baby North Dakotas’ ears

Kim Kardashian and Kanye West’s decision to pierce their daughter North’s ears for her first birthday is drawing criticism on Twitter.
The diamond solitaire studs, which North was first seen wearing on June 15th, have sparked accusations that the couple are treating their daughter as a press ploy and dress-up doll.

‘Kim Kardashian has pierced her one-year-old's ears? That's cruel AND tacky...[sic]’ tweeted one enraged onlooker named Katy Brent.
Twitter user @ElleLobster added that the infant was 'far too young. Let her decide for herself when older! Should be banned, unnecessary and cruel. Purely for vanity of parents.

Another follower who goes by Miss Morgue responded: 'I'm a body piercer & will only pierce the ears of a child old enough to ask for it and understand whats happening.'

But as the blog Oh No They Didn’t noted at the time: ‘It's not unusual for Spanish families to have their daughters' ears pierced when they are still infants.

‘And given that Hilaria Baldwin, 30, hails from Mallorca, it's worth understanding the cultural context before taking a look at her seven-month-old daughter's earrings.’

Texting, Sex Tapes, and Trading Spaces: VH1 Gets an Early Jump on Nostalgia With 'I Love the 2000s'

Gather the grandchildren around your feet and spin them elaborate tales of what it was like in the long-ago past, otherwise known as the decade of the 2000s. Or, y'know, just let them tell you, since the 2000s ended only four years ago.

Nevertheless, VH1 is stirring up nostalgia for the era with Tuesday night's premiere of "I Love the 2000s." Because the fads and happenings highlighted in the show feel like only yesterday, we ventured back in time a bit further to pinpoint their pop-culture forebears.

T.I. Encourages Azealia Banks To Put On A Mask And Burn Her Baby Pictures

Video: The moment T.I. found out about up and coming rapper Azealia Banks' tweet about his wife being "mediocre" (after that he addressed it again on Instagram):

If getting under T.I.’s skin was Azealia Banks’ ultimate goal over the past 24 hours, then she’s achieved it. Her nasty tweets about Tip’s wife, Tiny — which she continued to share and delete — prompted him to snap back with some threats and insults on Instagram, and then he really went off for the MTV News camera.

First of all, Tip called Banks “cowardly” for continuing to delete her messages.

Any time we speak on certain matters that are above us, we merely bring attention to all of our weaknesses,” he said. “And her speaking on my family, I think people then look at her [like], this person who had this to say — let’s see what they looked like. Well, my word. You should’ve said that with a mask on.

Burn the baby pictures!” he added laughing.

The Atlanta rapper, who just premiered his latest single “Mediocre” (featuring Banks’ nemesis Iggy Azalea) doesn’t seem to be too phased by all the trolling. “Ever since this person has been introduced into the community, they do nothing but unnecessarily kick up dust and create controversy and confusion.

It Doesn’t Matter That Amazon’s Music Streaming Service Is Lame

Last week, Amazon introduced Prime Music, a streaming service included in a Prime subscription that scared … absolutely none of the big music streaming competitors.

Within hours of Amazon introducing its music streaming service, Prime Music, the consensus among critics and observers is that the service is … okay.

While Amazon played up the fact that Prime Music has “unlimited, ad-free streaming” and a catalogue of “over a million songs,” anyone and everyone evaluating the service was quick to point out that players in the streaming scene such as Spotify have well over 20 million songs. “It’s hard to tell who is the target audience for Amazon’s service. If it’s a consumer mass market play, there are still some big gaps,” TechCrunch observed, noting that 9 of the current top 10 in the Billboard Top 100 were not available last week via Prime Music streaming.

An Italian music site has supposedly confirmed that It Should Be Easy featuring will.u.stop is getting the single treatment in Europe where it's going to be officially released as the album's third single! Looks like the Britney Jean era isnt dead afterall!

"It Should Be Easy is the new single from Britney Jean . On June 13 in Italian radio the song that sees the collaboration of rapper and producer will.i.am is the third song from the last album of the princess of pop. It is a single reserved exclusively for the European market, since in the U.S. everything is silent in this regard.

Colin Firth Drops Out of ‘Paddington’

Colin Firth has ditched “Paddington.”

TWC-Dimension confirmed that Firth will no longer voice the talking, accident-prone young bear Paddington, with the British thesp asserting that he was unable to find the right voice. The film, produced by “Gravity” and “Harry Potter” producer David Heyman, stars Nicole Kidman, Hugh Bonneville, Sally Hawkins, Jim Broadbent, Peter Capaldi and Julie Walters.

'Creepy Paddington' meme drops beloved bear into horror films

Fans of the popular children's cartoon Paddington Bear were delighted last week when the first still from an upcoming film version of the series was released.

The image, premiered by the Telegraph June 10, features a gently smiling CGI-version of Paddington in his signature blue duffle coat standing outside Buckingham Palace with a suitcase (presumably filled with marmalade.)

As the still began circulating the web, film lovers were eager to the discuss details of the movie itself; casting choices (Colin Firth [OP: Colin dropped out of the film -- is creepy paddington to blame?] and Nicole Kidman, among others,) release date (Nov. 28 in the U.K.) and the film's animation style.

Others, however, were more concerned about Paddington's look.

While, as Complex noted, the "slimmed-down" version of the film's title character "at least somewhat resembles the book version," many found Paddington's expression in the image quite... well, creepy.

Within hours of the original still being released, Twitter users started using the hashtag #CreepyPaddington to describe the character.
