Popjustice's interview with Charli XCX

Without wishing to sound too dramatic about the whole thing, Charli XCX might be the perfect modern pop entity.

She sounds like a popstar, she thinks like a popstar, she looks like a popstar. She even writes like a popstar, and not the sort of popstar who turns up near the end of a writing session and throws in a couple of ‘baby’s.

During the course of what follows you will hear Charli talking about various things. The punk album she recorded and ditched, the new album she’s nearly finished, the Britney song that nearly happened, and what lies ahead for pop. You will also bear witness to a trick question so disgraceful that it could set back the public’s view of journalism more effectively than a million Leveson inquiries.There will also be talk of ‘Boom Clap’, a forthcoming single so amazing that we’re going to plug it at the start of the interview (PRE-ORDER ON iTUNES) as well as the end.

Collapse )


tl;dr type of interview, so here's a gist of it:

1) her next album that was initially a punk album got ditched and she's back on the pop route. oop well i can't say i didn't see that coming
2) was offered a feature on a Christina Aguilera song but turned it down
3) talks a bit about being bummed out by Hilary Duff turning down Boom Clap
4) and about that song she wrote for Britney
5) and she might be working on something for Rihanna?

Ireland Baldwin Defends Angel Haze's Comments About America Not Ready for Gay Interracial Couple

An interview last week claimed that Angel Haze stated America wasn't ready for an interracial gay couple in regards to her relationship with Ireland Baldwin.

Following that, Ireland went on a Twitter rant on Sunday defending her rapper girlfriend and claiming her words were twisted, while arguing that commentary about their relationship should be unrelated to race or gender.

The 18-year-old daughter of Alec Baldwin and Kim Basinger had just finished watching Angel perform at Glastonbury Music Festival when she took to social media to express her thoughts.

'Making this about race or the fact that were both women is rather outdated,' Ireland wrote, adding, 'This is a new world we live in people.'

New rules Approved for 87th Academy Awards

The Academy has approved new rules for the 87th Academy Awards, including rule changes in the Animated Feature Film and the Animated Short Film categories.

In the Animated Feature Film category, DVD screeners are now required as part of a film’s submission.

In the Animated Short Film category, films that have received prior nontheatrical public exhibition or distribution may now qualify for Academy Awards consideration by winning a festival award on the Short Films Qualifying Festival List. Without a festival win, the nontheatrical distribution prior to a theatrical release would still disqualify a short film’s eligibility.

In addition, for the first time, the Gold, Silver and Bronze Medal award-winning films in the Alternative, Animation, Narrative and Foreign Film categories at the 2014 Student Academy Awards will all be eligible for Oscar consideration in the Short Film categories.

'Silly Walks act in Monty Python is not funny,' says John Cleese

MONTY PYTHON legend John Cleese has revealed he thinks his Ministry of Silly Walks sketch is not funny.

Cleese, 74, has ruled out a reprise of the sketch for this week’s Python reunion shows at London’s O2 Arena.

He tells a BBC documentary tonight: “The one thing I’m glad I won’t have to do is the silly walk sketch, which I never thought was as funny as everybody else.

“The only reason it became so iconic was the brilliance of my performance because I never thought it was a very good sketch.”

The cult comedy troupe, Cleese, Michael Palin, Eric Idle, Terry Gilliam and Terry Jones, announced their comeback for a string of gigs last year.

Sixth Python Graham Chapman died of cancer in 1989 aged 48.

Idle, 71, said the reunion show was a sort of musical with Pythonesque madness in the middle. “It won’t just be five 70-year-olds trying to do a sketch show,” he promised.


John Cleese has never been an agreeable sort of person, but he's really letting it all hang out in his old age. what's your favorite Monty Python sketch, ONTD?

5SOS Mega Post: Ed Sheeran Covers "She Looks So Perfect" + Album Review and Snippets

There was probably a time when 5 Seconds of Summer did not see any of their current success coming. Formed in 2011 and originally covering other artists’ songs on YouTube, their lives were changed when they were picked to be the opening act of a tour headed by One Direction (both groups share the same management team, Modest!). Within the span of a year, those performances would catapult the group to popularity that they only once dreamed of. Whether or not they were expecting it, their time is now and the heat is on, especially with the anticipation surrounding the release of their first full length, self-titled album.

Admittedly, they have a bit of an uphill battle ahead of them. They must first prove they have what it takes to stand on their own while staying true to fans that have stood with them since their humble beginnings. On top of that, they must be interesting enough (at least musically) to bring in a new fan base to help them thrive. Their first single, the instantly catchy She Looks So Perfect, reined in those new fans and even caused a sales spike for American Apparel underwear. Unintentional product placement aside, the song did its job, giving 5 Seconds of Summer their first top-five charting hit.

Beyoncé Knowles Tops The FORBES Celebrity 100 List

Who runs the world? In entertainment, it’s Beyoncé. The singer has climbed to the No. 1 spot on the Forbes Celebrity 100 after an amazing year featuring a massive tour.

Queen B played 95 shows, bringing in an average $2.4 million per stop, according to Pollstar. She also dropped her most innovative album. Titled simply Beyoncé, the album hit iTunes with barely any publicity and was billed as a “visual album” becausejay there was already a music video for each of the 14 songs. The single “Drunk in Love” has gone platinum, selling more than 1 million copies.

But Beyoncé doesn’t stop with music — she’s built a small business empire. She earns millions endorsing companies like H&M and Pepsi. She has a line of fragrances with names like Heat, Rise and Pulse, and then there’s her clothing company House of Dereon, which features jeans, shoes and accessories. All together we estimate that Beyoncé earned $115 million between June 1, 2013 and June 1, 2014.

The singer is embarking on another big year highlighted by her first world tour with her husband, Jay Z. Their On The Run tour, which kicked off June 25 in Miami, will be short (only 20 dates are set) but lucrative for the pair, who can claim the crown as the most powerful celebrity couple in the world.

Luis Suárez's Apology

After several days of being home with my family, I have had the opportunity to regain my calm and reflect about the reality of what occurred during the Italy-Uruguay match on 24 June 2014.

Independent from the fallout and the contradicting declarations that have surfaced during these past days, all of which have been without the intention of interfering with the good performance of my national team, the truth is that my colleague Giorgio Chiellini suffered the physical result of a bite in the collision with me. For this:

• I apologize to Giogio Chiellini and the entire football family.

Robert Downey Jr. on son Indio's drug arrest: He likely inherited addiction gene

Robert Downey Jr. has long been one of Hollywood's cautionary tales about the perils of drug use — until he became one of its success stories for kicking the habit. Now his oldest son Indio has been arrested on suspicion of possession of a controlled substance believed to be cocaine.

Indio Downey, 20, was arrested Sunday afternoon after a Los Angeles County deputy spotted him in a car smoking something out of a pipe, the Los Angeles Times reports. He was released Sunday night on $10,250 bail, and must return to court Aug. 29.

"Unfortunately there's a genetic component to addiction and Indio has likely inherited it," Downey says in a statement to TMZ. "Also, there is a lot of family support and understanding, and we’re all determined to rally behind him and help him become the man he's capable of being. We’re grateful to the Sheriff’s department for their intervention, and believe Indio can be another recovery success story instead of a cautionary tale."

Indio's mother is Deborah Falconer, who married Downey in 1992, a few years before Downey's drug problems became public with a series of arrests, including an infamous 1996 incident in which he walked into a Malibu home and took a nap in a child's bed. After flunking rehab and violating probation, he served two stints in prison, relapsed but finally got sober in 2003, by which point Falconer had left Downey.

Downey's career — which suffered, but never as much as other actors handicapped by addiction — rebounded with the hugely popular "Iron Man" series. He also married producer Susan Levin and welcomed another son, Exton, in 2012.

Paramount Probably Lying about 100M Box Office Opening for Transformers 4

The first big box-office controversy in the sixth months since I’ve been reporting erupted this morning as Paramount Pictures put the final three-day domestic total of Transformers: Age of Extinction at $100.038 million in its opening weekend. “They’re lying,” said one distribution head at a major studio. Said another, “I don’t get get it. Is it just arrogance? What is the point of inflating your box-office numbers? So they can claim the first $100M movie opening of the year? Oh please, who cares? It’s a great opening anyway.”

One insider at Paramount with knowledge of the financials told Deadline that there has been concerns that there could be more layoffs if the fourth installment of the Transformers series didn’t hit the $100M mark. So maybe that’s what’s going on. Even so, everyone in town — and I mean everyone — has it much less than $100M. Hey, as one my colleagues just said, the movie itself is inflated to 2:45 minutes, so why not the box office grosses, too?

FX picks up new series "Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll"

FX has picked up comedy Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll -- created by Dennis Leary -- to series, the cable network announced Monday.

Starring Leary, John Corbett, Elizabeth Gillies, Elaine Hendrix and Bobby Kelly, SDRR centers on Johnny Rock (Leary), a middle-aged rock 'n' roller who desperately wanted to be rich and famous. So far, he's 0-for-2. As the magnificently talented lead singer of New York's legendary early 1990s band The Heathens, Johnny was on his way to the cover of Rolling Stone magazine. His best friend Flash was being called the next No. 1 lead guitar player on planet Earth. The critics loved them. Their live shows were selling out. But Johnny had a problem with booze. And coke. And weed. And pills. And cough medicine. And he slept with Flash's wife as well as his bass player's fiancee. The band broke up the same day their first and only record was released. Twenty-five years later, Johnny is now trying to get the band back together again because his soon-to-be-ex-manager Ira tells him he's a broke, anonymous bartender.

The comedy hails from Fox Television Studios and FX Productions and will premiere on FX in 2015. Leary's Apostle banner partner Jim Serpico executive produces the comedy, which filmed on location in New York City. The project will feature original music and occasional guest appearances by rock stars, FX said. Leary penned the pilot, which was directed by Michael Blieden. Leary and Serpico exec produce.

"It's great to be back in business with Denis Leary, Jim Serpico and Tom Sellitti, and we’re thrilled to start on a new project that is both unique and hilarious," said FX president of original programming Eric Schrier. "Johnny Rock is the role that Denis Leary was born to play."

Keeping Up With Justin's Harem

He is supposedly back on with his 'princess' Selena Gomez after the pair were spotted enjoying several dates last week.

But Justin Bieber appears to be keeping his options firmly open. The Baby star was caught cozying up with not one but three pretty ladies - including model Chantel Jeffries and her friend Catherine Paiz - over the weekend.

The 20-year-old singer was not shy with his affections as he got close to a pretty brunette at pal Chris Brown's 1st Annual Skate Jam Party in Glendale on Sunday evening.

His cute companion, who was on roller skates, showed off her shapely legs in a tight pair of white shorts and cropped T-shirt.

And Justin looked very attentive as he wrapped an arm around her shoulders and whispered in her ear.

At one point the crooner appeared to take her phone number as he leaned in to listen very carefully to the young woman while holding his phone in his hand. And the raven haired beauty is not the only company Justin has been keeping over the last few days.

On Thursday his partner in crime from earlier this year - model Chantel - was seen leaving the Boyfriend singer's house in Beverly Hills.

And it seems that the 21-year-old brunette was not shy in flaunting her rendezvous with the star as she posted a very cozy looking Instagram snap in the early hours of Monday morning.

In the shot, she snuggles up to the heartthrob and looks coyly up at the camera. Her best friend Catherine lies on his other side, forming a veritable Justin Bieber sandwich.

Carrie Underwood Returns as Voice of ‘Sunday Night Football'

Are you ready for some football? We know one country star who definitely is — Carrie Underwood is making her return to ‘Sunday Night Football.’

‘Sunday Night Football’ on NBC shared the news via Twitter that Underwood will continue as the voice of ‘Waiting All Day for Sunday Night’ in the upcoming 2014 football season. She’ll also be seen in the signature opening to the show, and judging by the picture, she’ll look fabulous as always.

The photo shows Underwood through a camera lens on the set of ‘Sunday Night Football,’ wearing a silver, sparkling dress with her long hair down.

This isn’t Underwood’s first time helping out with ‘SNF.’ She became the new face (and voice) of the song when Faith Hill retired from doing it after six seasons. This fall will mark Underwood’s sophomore season singing the theme song.

The first official ‘SNF’ game is Sept. 14, when the Seattle Seahawks will take on the Green Bay Packers. We can’t wait to see — and hear — the superstar’s kickoff performance.

Underwood has taken little time off from singing to do some good as of late. She recently took a little hiatus to head to Haiti for a mission trip.

In a remarkable 11th hour resurrection, Community — cancelled last month by NBC — will live on via Yahoo Screen, which has ordered a 13-episode 6th season.

The 55-year-old took inspiration from music legend David Bowie when embarking on his tenure as the 12th incarnation of the Time Lord.

His sleek costume was praised when it was previewed in January but the decision to include a buttoned-up white shirt was inspired by Bowie, according to insiders.

The singer sported a similar look as the Thin White Duke, his persona on the Station To Station album cover and in the film The Man Who Fell To Earth.

Your Taste in Sitcoms Reveals Some Surprising Truths About Your Love Life

According to a new study, watching sitcoms may actually make you more cynical about love.

Researchers at the University of Michigan published a new study examining the link between a viewer's television habits and the beliefs that viewer has about romance.

Surveying a pool of 625 undergraduate students about different types of media — including 93 "romantically themed and sub-themed" films, 17 sitcoms (like How I Met Your Mother or The Big Bang Theory) and four marriage-themed reality TV shows (like The Bachelor or Millionaire Matchmaker) — the researchers made some pretty interesting connections about viewership and romance.

After participants were asked about their viewing habits they were then asked about their ideas on love. The survey broke romance down into four perspectives to measure four different romantic beliefs: 1. People who think "love finds a way" (i.e. two people who love each other can overcome any differences or problems); 2. People who believe in a "one and only" (i.e. a person only experiences true love once in their lives); 3. People who subscribe to "idealization" (i.e. a relationship with someone who is someone's "true love" will be perfect) and; 4. People who believe in "love at first sight" (i.e. someone can fall in love with another person almost immediately).

Emily Deschanel’s Two-Year-Old Son is ’99 Percent Vegan’

Actress Emily Deschanel went vegan at the age of 15 after watching a documentary on the effects animal products have on the environment and our health.

Twenty-two years later, the star of “Bones” is raising her two-year-old son, Henry, with husband David Hornsby, to be “99-percent vegan.”

”Henry is 99-percent vegan because my husband is not 100-percent vegan,” admits Deschanel.

The actress has a break from shooting this summer and is planning “to hang out with my son, put him to bed, and cuddle – do all of the fun things I love doing with him.”

Deschanel, like most working moms, sometimes struggles to maintain the motivation to exercise. ”You work all of these hours and when you have time off, you don’t want to spend it working out while raising a child,” she said. “[But it is] important … to be healthy and show him that that’s important.”

Rolf Harris found guilty of indecent assault

Veteran entertainer and artist convicted of 12 counts of indecent assault from charges dating over nearly two decades

The veteran entertainer and artist Rolf Harris is facing prison after being found guilty of indecent assault following a trial in which he was portrayed as a "Jekyll and Hyde" character who used his celebrity status to grope and abuse young women and girls.

Following a dramatic six-week hearing, the jury at Southwark crown court convicted Harris of 12 counts of indecent assault, from 12 initial charges dating over nearly two decades from 1968.

The judge, Mr Justice Sweeney, said the entertainer would be sentenced on Friday, pending medical reports, and warned Harris a jail term was "uppermost in the court's mind". Harris will remain on unconditional bail until Friday.

Speaking outside the court, DCI Mick Orchard of the Metropolitan Police Service said: "[Harris] committed many offences in plain sight of people as he thought his celebrity status placed him above the law."

"I want to thank the women who came forward for their bravery, I hope today's guilty verdict will give them closure and help them to begin to move on with their lives."

Better. We have a really good friendship. We've known each other since before Zodiac. And he's kind of like an older brother that I wish I had. He sort of looks out for me, and I remember when the role came up in the movie, I reached out to him, I was nervous about it, I said "I don't know if I can do this" and he said "It's alright buddy, I gotcha."

How much longer do would you like to play Bruce Banner/Hulk?

Ben & Jen Celebrate Their 9th Anniversary With a Night Out in Detroit


Jennifer Garner and Ben Affleck had a low-key wedding anniversary celebration over the weekend.
The brunette beauty flew to Detroit to be with her hubby, who is currently there filming the highly anticipated Batman vs. Superman: Dawn of Justice.

The two shared a romantic dinner at Bistro 82—a French fusion restaurant located in the Royal Oak suburb—and E! News has exclusively learned that the famous duo did their best to remain under the radar.

"Jen was wearing a black dress and Ben was in jeans with disheveled hair…They were walking slowly by and they seemed relaxed and in good spirits," an eyewitness tells us.

And even though their arguably one of the most famous duos in Hollywood, our source says that the Afflecks didn't stand out in any way.

"I had to do a double take because they were blended with the rest of the guests and they appeared like any normal couple."

"This is the demonstration of the total failure of immigration policy in our country, of the refusal to assimilate by a certain number of binationals," said Miss Le Pen, the leader of the far-Right anti-immigrant Front National.

When Redgrave's character, Kate Lethbridge-Stewart, confronts the Cybermen, and to prove her credentials, she throws down the very thing that springs the Cybermen to life. With this the Doctor calls everyone to back away.

Just last week show-lovers were put out of their misery as the BBC finally revealed the premiere date for series eight, which will be August 23.

I can tell I'm going to love Capaldi - he just looks so damn right as the Doctor. I hope the scripts are up to standard. Michelle Gomez's character is called Gatekeeper of the Nethersphere, which invites both smutty comments and wild speculation.

Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow Wear a Tee Covered in Nude Drawings of Lena Dunham


Leslie Mann and Judd Apatow made our Monday a lot more entertaining. Mann posted a hilarious photo on Instagram of herself and Apatow wearing a T-shirt (the Clashist tee) covered in naked drawings of Lena Dunham with the caption “Inside @lenadunham.”

The comedic couple managed to squeeze into the top—adorned with Dunham’s most memorable nude moments from Girls—together. The pair’s wearing of the shirt is fitting (get it?), considering the fact that Apatow is one of the producers on the hit HBO show.

Gisele Bündchen Gets a Major Hair Makeover for Balenciaga’s Fall Campaign


Gisele Bündchen has proved once and for all that she can pull of any look. The Brazilian supermodel ditched her signature long waves for Balenciaga’s fall 2014 campaign in favor of a look we’ve never seen on her before: A buzz cut!

The androgynous hairdo, which is the work of stylist Anthony Turner, is in sharp contrast to the ultra-sexy thigh-high boots that Bündchen wears in the ad. In the dark and brooding image, shot by photographer Steven Klein, the model also wears a turtleneck and boxy blazer while sitting in a room of cracked mirrors.

DanRad's dog day afternoon = cameo in Apatow movie?

The actor formerly known as Harry Potter has some new furry accessories. Daniel Radcliffe, 24, was photographed walking a large number of dogs (photographers reported it was 12!) at the same time.

Turns out that everyone's favorite wizard is not down on his luck as the photos imply, but filming for yet another new role. Radcliffe is reportedly working in front of the cameras for Judd Apatow's latest, Trainwreck, in NYC's Bryant Park. The comedy is not listed on Radcliffe's IMDb resume and reps for Trainwreck declined to comment on casting. Apatow himself weighed in with a joke:

Trainwreck’s plot is tightly under wraps, so very little is known about the film. It's IMDb page states that it stars Tilda Swinton, Brie Larson, Bill Hader and Ezra Miller among others, with a July 2015 release.

Jack White Trolls Glastonbury With Metallica Cover

Watch White's entire set at UK festival, including his nod to "Enter Sandman" in support of controversial headliners


Jack White's Glastonbury setlist looks svelte when compared to the mammoth 26-song performance he dropped on Bonnaroo two weeks earlier, but his Glasto gig did feature one big surprise: A nod to controversial headliners Metallica. The heavy metal gods' selection as Glastonbury headliner was met with skepticism and anger from the British press who questioned how the "Unforgiven" group would mesh with the peace-and-love Glasto vibes. Metallica even sold a T-shirt that poked fun at the criticism, but it was White who delivered the last laugh by treating the crowd to a cover of Metallica's "Enter Sandman."

Around the 45-minute mark of the below video, during a performance of the White Stripes' "Cannon" on the Pyramid Stage, White and his band tease the Metallica classic. While White doesn't sing any of the track, the riff is unmistakable. While the crowd probably didn't appreciate being trolled by White, Bradley Cooper sure enjoyed it. You can watch the entirety of the singer-guitarist's White Stripes-and-solo-heavy Glastonbury set below.

Glastonbury 2014: Blondie bans photographers from taking close-ups of Debbie Harry's ‘gnarly face’

Don’t expect to see any close-up shots of Debbie Harry from her Glastonbury set today.

The charismatic Blondie frontwoman, 68, banned photographers from the pits on the Other Stage, because ‘no-one wants to see pictures of her gnarly face’, one snapper said.

Harry’s iconic features have been a talking point for the musician over recent years.

In 2009, she admitted to having undergone cosmetic surgery for "business reasons".

Iggy Azalea: 'I have never had any musicians tell me that I wasn't authentic'

The Australian rapper has endured her fair share of controversy in a brief, spectacular career, but seems well equipped to fight her way to the top

It's never a good sign when they tell you the boyfriend will be sitting in on the interview. I explain that a 7ft basketball player on the sofa might affect Iggy Azalea's answers; that you talk differently in front of your other half; that she may have held the No 1 and No 2 slots at the same time on the Billboard Hot 100 chart last month, but that hardly qualifies her for a permanent henchman. "There's really nowhere else for him to wait," they keep saying, troubled, consulting their earpieces. We are at Wembley stadium.

At 16:45, Wendy Williams discusses Iggy Azeala and T.I.'s performance at the BET Awards. When discussing Iggy's success, Wendy added:

I wonder if that girl Azealia Banks is upset that Iggy Azalea has come along and taken what thunder she was supposed to be having... she had a really heavy street buzz, and then this Iggy Azalea came out of nowhere, and you can't turn on the radio without hearing her music.

The Top 3 "Real Names" Marvel Keeps Lazily Reusing for Its Superheroes

Marvel Studios has recently picked a director for their next comic-book adaptation, Doctor Strange. But sharp-eyed fans have wondered if the good doctor's full name, "Stephen Strange," may prove a little confusing when he meets fellow Avenger Captain America, aka "Steven Rogers."


The truth is that a Steve/Stephen mixup is the least of Marvel's sins when it comes to nomenclature. The company has an inexplicable fondness for a tiny pool of "alter-ego" names and keep returning to that same well over the decades, with the result that, for every Iron Man being the sole "Anthony" in the universe, there are four Henrys fighting over whether they're Beast or Ant-Man.

But there are a select few names that Marvel really keeps using over and over, often for their most famous characters, that has led to a severe name imbalance in the House of Ideas. Can you guess which ones? You may be surprised, shocked, and slightly aroused...
