SiriumXM DJ Anthony Cumia, co-host of long-running radio program The Opie & Anthony Show, launched into an extended racist tirade on Twitter after claiming to be assaulted by a woman in Times Square Tuesday.

Cumia claims he was trying to take pictures of the area when the woman got angry for being caught in his frame.

The 53-year-old host claims the woman objected to being in the photos and started punching him. He says after calling her a name she punched him repeatedly, and was then harassed by “5 blacks.”

First look at Superman in "Batman v Superman: Dawn of the Rise of the Planet of the Justice"

Plus Zack Snyder has fascinating thoughts to share

Warner Bros has released the first look at Henry Cavill as Superman in forthcoming superhero epic Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice.


Lashed by rain, the picture appears to show Supes in Gotham City, the home and hunting ground of Batman – who will be played by Ben Affleck.

The picture has been released to coincide with a USA Today interview with director Zack Snyder in which he explains the decision to include Batman in his Man of Steel follow-up and the reasoning for the film's new title.

"I was in no rush to put Batman in the movie," Snyder explained...

Georgina Haig cast as Elsa on OUAT

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Georgina Haig, who played Peter and Olivia's daughter on Fringe, has been tapped to play Frozen's Queen of Arendelle, TVGuide.com has learned.

During the season finale, an urn hidden away in Rumplestiltskin's (Robert Carlyle) vault in the past was transported to the future when Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) returned from their time-traveling adventure. Said urn contained Elsa, who spilled out seemingly ready for an icy duel. But will she actually be the Season 4 villain?

"She was never a villain," executive producer Edward Kitsis told us after the finale. Added executive producer Adam Horowitz: "The thing we loved so much about that movie, among a million other things, was that Elsa was misunderstood." Still, she's probably not too happy that Rumple had her locked up in his vault!

David Arquette engaged

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

David Arquette and Christina McLarty are engaged!

The 42-year-old actor proposed to his entertainment reporter girlfriend tonight during a family dinner with their 2-month-old son, Charlie West, and Arquette's daughter, Coco, in Malibu.

They arrived at the ocean-view restaurant—what a setting to pop the question in!—at around 6:10 p.m., seemingly for a casual night out. About 45 minutes after they were seated, Arquette motioned for the fam to follow him outside, where he got down on one knee and, at sunset, offered up an engagement ring with a large blue center stone.

"Coco, did you know?" McLarty was heard asking Coco, who coyly replied, "Maybe" and then giggled, "Engaged! Engaged!"

McLarthy was beaming from ear to ear when they walked back inside.

Incidentally, Arquette's proposal comes just days after Courteney Cox announced her engagement to Snow Patrol rocker Johnny McDaid. They revealed the news simultaneously on Twitter last week after she was spotted with a big diamond ring on that finger. "I'm engaged to him!" the 50-year-old Cougar Town actress wrote, while her rocker posted, "I'm engaged to her!"


Lucy Hale & her awkward 50 Shades audition

Like many actresses her age, Lucy Hale auditioned for "50 Shades of Grey."

She may have lost out to Dakota Johnson, but she's talking about what it was like to try out for the part of Anastasia Steele.

"Let's just say I don’t want my grandmother watching that audition tape," she told MTV. "[It was] awkward."

Hale, 25, who stars in the ABC Family series, "Pretty Little Liars," said that the reading for "50 Shades" was "unlike any audition I'd ever done before in my life."

"It was just me. It was a two-page monologue of ... exactly what you think it would be," she said. "Very uncomfortable."

"It was sort of one of those things where you just had to go with it or you're gonna look lame," she added. "Hopefully, I didn't look lame!"

Still, Hale took the audition seriously and had been hoping to get it. According to her, it was a well-sought-after role.

"I think any girl in my demographic would have loved to be a part of it,” Hale said. “Mainly, I was just interested in doing something risky and doing something a little different than my character on ‘PLL’ so it took me out of my comfort zone.”

Kate Upton: Everyday Supermodel

Brn9omdIQAAYXik.jpg large

"READING things about myself that aren't true drives me crazy!" Kate Upton mock squeals as we discuss the American tabloids' obsession with her love life. "I've managed to block it out, but my family really hasn't - so they'll read about me and then call me up saying, 'Are you alright? I saw this happened' and my mum will call and say: 'Well, I saw you went to Vegas, when you could have come to the family reunion…' and I'm like, 'mum, I swear, I'm in Europe!' It's insane!"

Drinking a purifying-looking green drink with her feet curled up beneath her, she could be any 22-year-old - except for the face, and the hair, and the body, and the Cameron Diaz film she just starred in, and the multi-million-dollar Bobbi Brown contract, and the Vogue covers... and yet still, somehow, the girl-next-door tag still seems feasible.

Upton promises she's jetlagged, but is still bright-eyed and bushy-tailed to an almost unbelievable, and certainly unachievable, degree. A cheerleader for confidence, she really practices what she preaches - talking animatedly on a range of topics and punctuating each anecdote with plenty of nodding and laughing and kindly sympathising.

A Quick Conversation with Tom Perrotta, Author of The Leftovers

In 2011, Belmont author Tom Perrotta published The Leftovers, a novel about a secular rapture in which seemingly random people vanish from Earth. HBO’s adaption of his book for a series of the same name premiered on June 29.

Doomsday prophet Harold Camping predicted the world would end in 2011. That same year, Belmont author Tom Perrotta published The Leftovers, a novel about a secular rapture in which seemingly random people vanish from Earth. Though Camping’s nightmare vision never came to pass, in a way, Perrotta’s has: HBO’s adaption of his book for a series of the same name premiered on June 29. We talked to the author in Los Angeles.

What advice do you have for people who still think the rapture is coming?
Somebody’s got to be right sometime.

Are people in the television industry more or less likely to be raptured than those in the publishing world?
In the Christian rapture, not too many of either would ascend. Name names tho

How is the rapture different in the televised version of The Leftovers than you present it in your novel?
The concept has survived unscathed from the book to the show. The show runner is Damon Lindelhof, who worked on Lost and comes out of the world of comic books and sci-fi and genre writing. In the book, I tried to resist genre conventions. I think the show will reflect a combination of our sensibilities. Trust no Lindelof

You published The Leftovers at the height of rapture fever. What would change if you wrote it today?
I might not have written the book now. So much of my energy as a writer was focused on the political split between Christian activists and liberal humanists. With Obama getting elected, certain hot-button cultural issues suddenly don’t seem so hot. Thanks, Obama

Is there anything or anyone you’d be happy to see drowned in rivers of blood?

This author also wrote the novel Little Children, which immediately explained what some ONTDers described as the "bleak tone" of the pilot ep.

That being said, is there anything or anyone you'd be happy to see drowned in rivers of blood, ONTD?

  • Fire Changes- Fire can now pass through walls.

  • Online Dating- There is no online dating, but Sims can use the computer to write love letters.

  • Emotional Tiers- Grant Rodiek mentioned that Sims can die of laughter if they are in the “third tier of Playful”, which seems to mean that each emotion has three levels of intensity, the third being the most extreme.

First Look: Director Tweets ‘High-Rise’ Set Photos

It's as if this warning sign was written for the tenants in Ben Wheatley's High-Rise.

English director Ben Wheatley (Down Terrace, Doctor Who’s “Deep Breath”) must be feeling generous and tweeted some early snaps from the set of his thriller High-Rise, based on J.G. Ballard’s 1975 novel by the same name.

The story revolves around a luxury apartment building, examining what happens to the tenants when they are cut off from the outside world. The film stars some high-profile actors including Tom Hiddleston (Thor), Luke Evans (The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug), Jeremy Irons (The Words), Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men), Sienna Miller (The Girl), Reece Shearsmith (The World’s End), and Stacy Martin (Nymphomaniac).

Cody Simpson: Headshake

Christian believes God cares about her

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The 29-year-old singer noticed a white feather float past her as she was performing at the BB&T Center in Sunrise, Florida, on Wednesday night and believes it is a sign that spiritual beings are protecting her.

In a series of Twitter posts, she revealed: ''My favorite part of the night was when I was singing By the Grace of God & a little white feather (presumably from a costume) floated by ... & it reminded me about the angels & how, maybe, they are still looking after me, helping me continue to put one foot in front of the other.''

The appearance of the symbol was even more significant to Katy as it happened as she was performing 'By The Grace of God' - the track she wrote in the wake of her divorce from Russell Brand.

As well as believing in angels, Katy also believes in aliens. Raised by strict Christian pastor parents, she has become increasingly interested in extra-terrestrials and is convinced humans are not alone in the universe.

She previously said: ''I'm fascinated by that kind of stuff because of how I grew up, where everything was so black and white. Now I'm seeing a lot more colour in the world and asking more questions. So I'm very into things that are above and beyond me and were before me and will be after me ... I do hope that when the aliens come, they'll recognise me. I'll be like, 'Please don't kill me, I wrote a song called 'E.T.' ''

“All Is by My Side” premiered at the Toronto Film Festival, where Open Road and XLrator acquired U.S. rights.

The project was created by Ridley after he discovered the Hendrix song “Sending My Love to Linda,” about fashion model Linda Keith, who heard Hendrix perform in London in 1966 and played a key role in encouraging his career.

Guy Does 29 Celebrity Impressions In One Amazing Song

What would it sound like if Billie Holiday, Bob Dylan and Britney Spears teamed up on a song together? Probably horrible! One of them is dead and we can't see the other two working well together. Too many divas in the studio, right?

But that didn't stop musician Rob Cantor from attempting his own trans-decade "We Are the World," doing 29 celebrity impressions while performing his original song "Perfect."

It's not (just) a viral stunt; that Cantor is impersonating these celebrities while telling his beloved she's "perfect just the way you are" adds a touch of irony to the song's sincere sentiments.

Watch the video above and marvel at how far Cantor stretches the definition of "celebrity" (Does Smeagol really count?), as well as his vocal cords on the female parts. When he gets to Gwen Stefani, you'll wonder: How can a man do that?

When he did that trumpet....wow


New Photos & International DVD Art For "Maps To The Stars"

Even though the Cannes Film Festival described David Cronenberg’s Maps To The Stars as a satire of Hollywood a la Robert Altman’s The Player, the filmmaker has a less ironic view of the material. “This is not a satire, I’m really just observing,” Cronenberg told Total Film recently. “I feel like a scientist or a researcher. That's the most honest, neutral way of looking at things. I'm not angry at Hollywood. I don't have a statement to make about Hollywood."

While there’s no official U.S. release date for the film yet (it’s a good bet that it’ll be at the Toronto International Film Festival and then get a North American debut after that), internationally things are a bit different. The film is already out in France, Italy, Switzerland and Germany, the Netherlands and more are getting the film in late September (it’s also a decent bet that eOne will release it here around the same time or early October). In fact, the film is even arriving in France on Blu-Ray and DVD in September too. Those DVD covers have been released as have a few new photos from the movie which you can see below.

♢Paris Hilton♢ Reveals Art and Release Date for New Single

What do you get when you mix Paris Hilton with a bed of oversized diamonds?
Answer: Thursday in the life of Paris Hilton. Just kidding! It's the brand new single art for her next release, "Come Alive."

ET has your exclusive first look at the ethereal heiress's new song ahead of its July 8th release. "Come Alive" is Hilton's second single as a Young Money Cash Money Billionaires artist. Her YMCMB debut, "Good Time," featured labelmate Lil Wayne.

"Come Alive" was written by Hilton and Mr. Beats with a decidedly summer vibe, skewing more towards pop than her last dance-heavy single. The track was inspired by the unmistakable feeling of falling in love, and the video, also out July 8th, is set in an ethereal, fantasy land.

Hilton is gearing up to celebrate the "Come Alive" release with a Hollywood launch party on Thursday, July 10, at 1OAK.

Hilton may be a rookie when it comes to the YMCMB team, which also includes Nicki Minaj, Drake, Tyga and more, but this ain’t her first rodeo in the music biz. Back in 2006, Hilton's iconic debut album Paris, released on Warner Bros. Records, peaked at No. 6 on the Billboard 200 albums chart. Her very first single, "Stars Are Blind," was a certifiable hit, peaking at No. 18 on the Billboard Hot 100 and at No. 1 on the Dance Music/Club Play Singles chart.

What do you think of Hilton's cover art? Are you excited to hear her new music?

Conchita Wurst: It’s annoying I’m still waiting for my right to marry

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

The Austrian diva, who headlined Pride in London last week, told The Outmost she is frustrated that “thousands of thousands” of people are having to wait for their right to marry.

She said: “This topic annoys me that much because for me I don’t need discussions… I don’t know what it takes to make this clear."

“I think it’s such an unimportant thing, it’s not necessary to talk about, because you’re allowed to love whoever you want to love and I don’t need a government that is like, ‘Well, you’re not allowed to and you’ve not got the same rights’. I’ll tell you what, of course I do!"

“I’m a human being and I have the same rights as everyone else, so I don’t need to discuss about that because it should be a common thing. So stop discussing, just make it equal."

“I don’t need a campaign, I just need decisions. I don’t need more time wasted. I’m not a politician, I don’t know how long it takes to make rights, but I’m one of thousands of thousands of people who are waiting.”

Same-sex marriage is not legal in Austria, but registered partnerships have been recognised since 2010. An opposition bill which would introduce same-sex marriage in the country – submitted in December – is set to be debated in the Autumn.

'Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them' Movie Trilogy Will Shoot In The U.K.

Among the few details we know about WB's planned Harry Potter offshoot Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them film, is that the story will begin in New York, seventy years before Harry Potter arrived at Hogwarts. But they won't be filmed there. Today brings word that the film(s) will shoot in Warner Bros. Studios Leavesden in the U.K.

Variety posted the update today, stating that Warner Bros. has confirmed that Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them will shoot at their studios in the U.K. The screenplay is to be written by penned by Harry Potter author J.K. Rowling, who wrote the book on which these movies are based. Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them is actually a reference guide in the form of a Hogwarts school textbook, written by the fictitious Newt Scamander, an adventurous wizard who traveled the word studying magical beasts well before Harry Potter's time.

At this point, the studio update is the latest piece to the puzzle as we await news on casting and a director for the first film. We know that WB is planning three mega-movies based on the book, the first of which is expected to arrive in theaters November 18, 2016.

33 Breakup Albums You Should Be Listening to Instead of Robin Thicke's 'Paula'

 photo 63e10ad0-0266-11e4-a032-7fc7940c624f_robin-thicke-paula_zps04686d3b.jpg

Plenty of fans are listening to Robin Thicke's new album, Paula, and thinking, "This marriage may not be salvageable." And by that, they mean the sacred contract between performer and audience, not the one between Thicke and his estranged wife, Paula Patton — although that's obviously not going so well, either.

In devoting an entire concept album to his hopes of winning back Patton, Thicke has come up with some of the most laughably quotable lyrics of the 21st century, proving that the lines between pathos and comedy really are blurred.

He's actually indulging in a fine pop tradition, actually — The Divorce Album — although most other stars who've recorded one did it to exorcise their bitterness and not try to "Get Her Back." None of the other practitioners of the form ever wrote lyrics quite as imploring as "Ooh, turn the porch light on/At least open the doggy door" or "I should have brought you roses… and rubbed your toesies."

Are you nursing your own romantic wounds, and looking for an album about how you can do better than your ex? You can do better than Paula. Here's a sampling of some other stars' (far superior) autobiographical breakup albums:

Freedom Haters Worried The USA Will Be Conquering Their 'Football' Soon + Change its Name to Soccer

8 reasons why it’s imperative that we DON’T encourage USA to become good at football

This World Cup has captured the imagination of the American public like no other in history, and we Brits seem to be generally of the opinion that this is a good thing – it isn’t.

While England shamefully sloped away from Brazil after finishing bottom of our group with just a single point, USA embarked on a rousing run to the last-16, where they narrowly lost to hotly-tipped Belgium after extra-time.

This run, which included knocking out Portugal in the group stages, has seen the US take football to its heart, with TV ratings hitting a record 24.7m – more than the recent World Series and NBA Finals.

However, although it’s nice to see our US-cousins finally realising what a rubbish sport baseball is, there are major concerns to consider when willing on America to embrace football…

Reality star spotted in viral video of British tourist sucking 24 cocks for a free drink

A video of a girl performing sex acts on more than 20 men in a Magaluf bar in order to get a free drink has sparked outrage after it was posted online.

Local Mayor Manuel Onieva has ordered a police investigation after footage of the sex party was uploaded to the internet.
The video shows a girl, who is believed to be a British tourist, performing the acts as men stand around a dancefloor and the person filming encourages her.

It has been reported that the girl was awarded a bottle of Cava, thought to cost just three euros, in return for completing the stunt.
So-called 'mamading' sex parties - mamada being a Spanish word for performing a sex act - are being increasingly used by Spanish bars as a way to tempt youngsters in.

Onieva says he 'completely rejects' the activities, and has warned 'mamading' bars that they face closure if they are found to have broken the law.

On Facebook and Twitter, users have reacted angrily to the video, branding it 'sick', 'disgusting' and 'really depressing'.
In a post alongside the original video, a user called Pajar Racos said: 'The area continues to invent ways to attract more and more young and this year has introduced a new trend in the local bars.

‘Wimbledon’ by Rich White Ladies: absurd, confusing, very good indeed.

A video arrived in our inbox overnight.

It’s for a song titled ‘Wimbledon’, by a duo calling themselves Rich White Ladies.

You may recall (we don’t, it completely passed us by) that Rich White Ladies - Tokyo Diiva and Scotty Rebel, both very good popstar names – had a tune called ‘One Percent’ a couple of years ago. The NYC-based duo are on the verge of signing to Motown/Capitol in the US, and Virgin will be handling things in the UK. And apparently The-Dream and Tricky Stewart are involved in some way.

Which is all very exciting, and at the same time none of it explains anything about the video you are about to watch. It’s an audiovisual experience that in many ways resembles something an alien civilisation might make in an attempt to ingratiate itself with the citizens of Earth, having understood that perky rap-stuffed pop music and tennis are both extremely popular but having not quite grasped the fact that those two elements are rarely popular at the same time.

PREMIERE: Andrea Balency - "You've Never Been Alone"

Andrea Balency is one of those people who will make you geographically jealous - part Mexican and part-French, she's lived in Buenos Aires, New York, London, and Paris. A citizen of the world, if you will, that makes city-dwelling people want to quit their jobs and visit some far-flung country for three months.

Despite only being 22 years of age, she's also brilliant at making music and has already supported James Blake, Mount Kimbie, Au Revoir Simone and the Cure. A few seconds into her debut and it’s clear why. Her jazz tinged, minimal electro-pop contains huge slabs of soul.

The lead track from the EP, You’ve Never Been Alone is produced by Airhead (James Blake longtime collaborator and bandmate) and has that sumptuous sound, everything fizzes and tremors, energy washes around the production, her siren vocals scorning a lover. The sort of track that pulls you in at first listen but reveals murkier undertones as you jam the repeat button. We like it a lot. We're so infatuated that we're premiering the video for "You've Never Been Alone".

Oh - and the video is totally NSFW because it features naked people!

Demi Lovato angers Russians over on-stage Putin gay kiss

Russians are attacking Demi Lovato after one of her dancers, wearing a Vladimir Putin mask, kissed another man.

During a performance of her Pride anthem, Really Don’t Care, two of her male backing dancers shared a kiss.

One of them was naked apart from a portrait of Putin attached to his underwear.

Thousands of her fans tweeted using the hashtag #DemiHurtsRussianLovatics, saying they were angry about the incident.

‘She has no right to act this way. This has nothing to do with politics,’ one said. ‘She should continue singing and leave politicians to deal with their countries laws on their own.

‘What has she achieved?... If she’s trying to protect gay rights, she’d better find another way.

‘Offending the president of a foreign country is unacceptable’.

Others were less than coherent, using social media to send insults and threats over the incident.

And others even suggested she should be banned from Russia full stop.

‘Because of this the fans have turned their backs on her and she will very likely be banned from entering out country,’ one said.

‘And then they might ban all foreign artists. Bravo Demi.’

Ellar Coltrane can hardly recall a time when he wasn't Mason. That's the lead character in Boyhood, Richard Linklater's convention-busting new movie, which was shot over 12 years as Mason matures from a cute six-year-old into a college freshman, with plenty of bumps along the way.

"There was something kind of cool about Ellar," Linklater told me. "His parents are artists, and I remember talking to people I was working with: 'He's just kind of a thoughtful kid. I don’t think he's going to be the straight-laced athlete or anything like that. I just kind of like the way his mind works, this six-year-old.'"

Ariana Grande reveals story behind Harry Styles song + Listen to stripped down version of "Problem"

Ariana Grande brought back the classic MTV show ‘TRL’ for one night with ‘Total Ariana Live,’ where she explained exactly how she ended up in the studio with One Direction’s Harry Styles.

The track penned by the 20-year-old Brit, titled ‘A Little Bit of Your Heart,’ will feature on Ariana’s sophomore album ‘My Everything,’ set to drop August 25. When asked how she ended up with a song written by Harry specifically for her, she revealed: “I was at the studio one day, and he was there, and literally, Johan [Carlsson] and Savan [Kotecha] were like ‘Hey, do you want to write something for Ariana?’ And he was like —” she put on a hilarious if not poorly imitated British accent “— ‘Sure, mate.’ And he just did.”

The 1D member must be as talented at writing as he is at singing, with how much Ariana praised him. “It’s a beautiful song. He’s an amazing writer,” she gushed. “It’s really beautiful. He’s amazingly talented.”

Directioners, Arianators, are you counting down the days ’til you hear this tune?

Garth Brooks ultimatum: 'Five shows or none at all

Garth Brooks has stated that it is a case of five shows at Croke Park or none at all, following the decision by Dublin City Council to allow only three of the proposed five shows.

Mr Brooks said "For us, it is five shows or none at all. To choose which shows to do and which shows not to do, would be like asking to choose one child over another".

The promoter of the Garth Brooks concerts at Croke Park had raised the possibility there will be no shows by the country singer at the GAA venue.

Bae is sick!

Through the advice of his doctors, Drake will not be performing at Wireless Festival this weekend in the UK. In a statement released by the festival, Drizzy announced that he had become ill over the past few days ago and though he is recovering, he has not been medically cleared to fly or perform at this time.
It's worth noting that Drake is scheduled to host ESPN's ESPY Awards on July 8.
Read Drake's full statement about his cancellation below, and stay tuned for more details when they are made available:

"To my beloved fans, it truly breaks my heart that I won't be able to perform as planned at Wireless and Roskilde this weekend. I got sick a few days ago and although I am on my way to bouncing back, my doctors have made it clear that I am not physically fit to fly or deliver the performance my fans expect and deserve from me. I will be focused on resting for a quick recovery. I have the best fans in the world and I can't wait to come back to make more incredible memories together."

The festival is set to go on as planned, with Rudimental performing an extended set on Friday night in Birmingham, and Kanye West filling in with an entire additional headlining performance on Saturday night in London. Kanye is now headlining every night of the festival with the added set.


f(x) Are K-Pop's Top Hipsters With New Single "Red Light"

We wondered how f(x) would follow up their funky ode to wisdom teeth "Rum Pum Pum Pum" since last summer, and today the K-pop faves make their return with another left-field pop tune.

"Red Light" opens with a production mixing a ticking clock, stadium-sized clapping and phat bass line as the girls spit confident coos with a few mantras peppered in ("Under the rule of the jungle, the weak get eaten," sings member Krystal). By the one-minute mark, the track has evolved to its hyperactive, synth-pop chorus featuring the girls' signature harmonies embellished with digitally-altered vocal blips and bloops. It's still pop, but all done in a clever way that makes one need to listen very carefully for all the sonic elements.

Any love for "Red Light" is sure to grow tenfold after one watches its accompanying video—with more than a million views in less than 12 hours. The girls' style changes from A Clockwork Orange-esque suits to G.I. Jane military-babe gear plus a slew of high-fashion pieces seen throughout the visual."Red Light" is title track from f(x)'s upcoming third full-length album, dropping July 7. Last summer's Pink Tape LP made Fuse's 41 Best Albums of 2013 so our hopes are very high for another quality record.
