9 (5) young actors who deserve Emmys

In anticipation for the Primetime Emmy nominations (July 10th) we've decided to put together a list of some super young actors who deserve, but probably won't receive any Emmy attention. For as long as they've been around, Emmy Awards have typically been given to older, more esteemed faces. There's always exceptions (most recently, Merritt Wever for "Nurse Jackie"), but in general newcomers and younglings are the ones left out.

Considering it was such a great year for TV, here are nine five deserving young actors who you should continue to keep in mind, with or without nominations:

Make Ringo Starr’s Birthday Wish Come True—Post a Peace Sign Selfie For a Good Cause!

With a little help from his friends, John Varvatos has created an iconic menswear brand that serves up genuine rock ‘n’ roll with his edgy aesthetic and legendary ad campaigns that feature some of the most celebrated names in rock music. Everyone from Iggy Pop to KISS has posed for the designer, but Varvatos tells us that “things have been taken to the next level” with his forthcoming ad campaign, as living legend and former Beatle, Ringo Starr, is the latest rocker to strike a pose for the brand. We caught up with the designer to get the lowdown on his Fall/Winter 2014 ad campaign, which launches today (on Ringo’s birthday!) alongside a unique charitable initiative to benefit the Ringo Starr Peace and Love Fund and spread the message that (peace and) love is all you need.

William Orbit addresses Alien vocal leak


Dearest Music Lovers, I have heard that Britney vocal link that everybody’s been discussing. It has been impossible not to as there have been many comments directing my attention to it. [I won’t re-posting it here]. I'd like to affirm that ANY singer when first at the mic at the start of a long session can make a multitude of vocalisations in order to get warmed up.
Warming up is essential if you’re a pro, as it is with a runner doing stretches, and it takes a while to do properly. I’ve heard all manner of sounds emitted during warmups. The point is that it is not supposed to be shared with millions of listeners.
A generous singer will put something down the mic to help the engineer get their systems warmed up and at the right level
, maybe whilst having a cup of herb tea and checking through lyrics before the session really kicks off. It’s not expected to be a ‘take’.
I think that 99% of you reading this will totally understand.
Whomever put this on the internet must have done so in a spirit of unkindness, but it can in no way detract from the fact that Britney is and always will be beyond Stellar! She is magnificent! And that’s that.
Sincerely, William

Katy Perry’s Perfume Ad Is Probably The Most Intense Perfume Ad Ever

You say you want a revolution? Well, Katy Perry is bringing it.
In probably the most intense cartoon perfume ad in the history of perfuming, Katy is literally saving the world with a spritz or two of her new fragrance Killer Queen’s Royal Revolution.

Featuring some Game Of Thrones-style backing music and a  tip of the head to Conchita Wurst (to see is to believe) , the video is probably the most non-Katy Perry thing that Katy Perry has ever done

Lykke Li interview: I can't stand my first album

On Lykke Li’s wrist are three thin, faint black lines. They look like an accidental pen doodle but are in fact a tattoo. “I was 21 and homeless – such a broken, lost woman. I chose three lines because I knew I was going to make three albums and I knew they were going to set me free.”

So here the Swedish indie-pop artist is, seven years on, having just released her third album, “I Never Learn”, a heartbreaking collection that continues the theme of broken love from the critically acclaimed “Youth Novels” (2008) and “Wounded Rhymes” (2011). Her mesmerising performances take her to festivals around the world, including Glastonbury this weekend and Latitude next month.

Although she still considers herself a “boutique singer”, not a mainstream one, her fame is growing fast, bolstered by projects such as writing a song for the soundtrack of a Twilight film, a music video with the celebrated Swedish actor Stellan Skarsgård and even a role in a Terrence Malick film, which is shrouded in secrecy.

Newspaper Refers To Obama as “N*gger”

Residents in New York City’s West Villager received a shock when they saw a recent headline in their local paper. It read, “The N—-r in the White House” — except without the dashes.

The WestView News ran the headline in reference to President Obama in an opinion piece that criticizes what it calls the anti-black “racism” of far-right voters. Apparently the title, by white author James Lincoln Collier, was supposed to be tongue in cheek and the piece is actually pro-Obama.

“It’s disrespectful in any context to refer to the president of the United States as the N-word,” said one West Villager, Eugene May. “If you were quoting something or referring to the historic context of the word being used, I can understand the justification”.

Any ironic intent in calling Obama by the word was no consolation, he said.

Oscar Pistorius re-enacts shooting of Reeva in new video

The United States company behind the unusual video in which Oscar Pistorius re-enacts his shooting of his girlfriend says its animated 3D films of crime scenes have helped to win multi-million dollar lawsuits, including payouts for victims of accidental shootings.

Based in Cleveland, the firm, The Evidence Room, creates detailed animations which have been used as evidence in numerous trials, mainly in the United States. It claims its 3D recreations recently helped to win a $US39 million settlement for the family of a highway inspector killed in a road accident and a $US3.5 million settlement involving a police raid in which heavily armed officers killed a man watching television.

Pistorius’s uncle hired Evidence Room in October 2013 to create the animated recreation but it was not shown during the trial, according to Australia’s Channel Seven.

Pistorius’s lawyer has accused the broadcaster of “unlawfully” airing the video and said the station had agreed not to air it until the end of the trial. Channel Seven said it obtained the video legally and only showed it in Australia.

Scott Roder, The Evidence Room’s head, provided a running commentary on the Pistorius footage for Channel Seven's Sunday Night program."If you look at the evidence Oscar's clearly not guilty," Mr Roder said.

Mr Roder, who claims to have worked on “1,000-plus cases”, said he believed that Pistorius shot at his bathroom door and killed his girlfriend Reeva Steenkamp after she frightened him by moving a magazine rack inside the bathroom.

Standing before a screen showing a video game-style animated recreation of the shooting, complete with the sounds of Pistorius’s anguished screams, Mr Roder said: “Now he’s really panicked, he turns the light on and realises the door is locked and the key must be on the inside. So he goes outside to the balcony.”

Mr Roder said neighbours who claimed they heard a woman screaming had actually heard Pistorius. He also refutes claims that there were several sets of gunshots, saying his forensic examination supported Pistorius’s claim that the sounds were from him breaking down the bathroom door with a cricket bat.


Have you been following the case? I've kind of lost interest, it seems to be dragging.

Ellen's Next Gig: Lifestyle Guru

“I wouldn’t be doing this if I didn’t want it to be the biggest brand name that you can imagine.”

Meet the speaker: design’s latest lifestyle-brand maven, Ellen DeGeneres.

“This” is E.D., DeGeneres’ nascent lifestyle brand launching with a gift-oriented capsule collection for holiday. Despite the obvious invocation of DeGeneres’ initials, the brand’s name is Ed (like Koch, Sullivan and Wilbur’s chatty horse from the long-ago sitcom), a nickname bestowed on DeGeneres by her wife, Portia de Rossi. As for the dots, they’re more design elements than punctuation.

Fully realized, E.D. will encompass categories from home to fashion to chic wares for some of DeGeneres’ favorite friends — dogs and cats. And she’s thinking big. “I’m not trying to launch a little boutique situation,” DeGeneres told WWD over lunch on New York’s Upper East Side. To that end, she calls the project her “next phase,” one she expects to flourish and occupy her professional attentions full-time, long after her talk-show days are done.

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

TV geek goddess Elizabeth Mitchell is coming to Storybrooke.

Mitchell has joined the cast of ABC’s Once Upon a Time for a season 4 arc as part of the much-anticipated Frozen-inspired storyline. The move marks Mitchell’s return to ABC, where she became a fan favorite on Lost. Since then, she’s starred in ABC’s V and was most recently on NBC’s Revolution. Only this time, we hear Mitchell might be playing a villainous character.

Mitchell’s Once Upon role isn’t being revealed yet, but we’re told she is “possibly malevolent” with ties to royal Frozen sisters Anna (newcomer Elizabeth Lail) and Elsa (Fringe familiar Georgina Haig) as well as to Storybrooke and Arendell. The events in Once Upon are expected to take place after the events in last year’s animated Disney hit.

Selena Gomez to be Guest of Honor at Italy's Ischia Global Fest!

sel 22

Gomez and teen actor Leo Howard add to the star power of the 12-year-old event already slated to host Jessica Chastain, Chiwetel Ejiofor and Sylvester Stallone.
The Ischia Global Film & Music Fest announced Monday that actress, singer and teen idol Selena Gomez will be the surprise guest of honor at this year’s event, where she will be on hand for the international premiere of Rudderless, Gomez’s latest acting credit.
The festival also said that teen actor Leo Howard, best known for his roles in the television series Kickin’ It, will also attend the event to be honored with the Ischia Kids Global Icon prize. Howard will turn 16 years old during the festival. Gomez and Howard add new star power to an already celebrity-packed event pulled together by event founder Pascal Vicedomini: the festival previously announced it would honor Jessica Chastain and Chiwetel Ejiofor as actress and actor of the year, with Sylvester Stallone also expected to be on hand. Italy’s Paolo Virzi and Spider-Man director Marc Webb will be honored as directors of the year. Rudderless, the feature film-directing debut from veteran actor William H. Macy, premiered to strong reviews at the Sundance Film Festival in January, where The Hollywood Reporter’s John DeFore predicted the film would "be seen as a debut in keeping with Macy’s history of pairing memorable idiosyncrasy with commercial instincts." Rudderless will screen in Ischia July 19. In a statement, Vicedomini called the 22-year-old Gomez a "stylistic model and a true artist.

With Gone Girl well on its way to the big screen, Gillian Flynn has now set her sights on television.

EW has confirmed that Entertainment One Television is currently working to turn Flynn’s debut novel, Sharp Objects, into a one-hour serialized drama. Sharp Objects follows Camille Preaker, a reporter who leaves her stay at a mental hospital and is immediately thrust back into the world with a tough assignment that forces her to return home to cover a murder involving two preteen girls. Suddenly back in her old room, surrounded by a mother and half-sister she hasn’t exactly kept up with, Camille has to look into her own past to discover the story in front of her.

Flynn will executive produce the show alongside Jason Blum and Charles Layton. Buffy the Vampire Slayer‘s Marti Noxon will write the script and serve as showrunner.

Vine sis Nash Grier spouts anti-gay idiocy on Vine

Over 8 million just watched this teen spout anti-gay idiocy on Vine

This 16-year-old has just told his teenage fans that only 'fags' get HIV

A teenager saying something stupid doesn’t normally make the news, but normally 16-year-olds don’t have an audience of 8.7 million people.

One of the most popular users of the six-second video sharing website Vine, Nash Grier has more followers than celebrities like Harry Styles (2.7 million) and Justin Bieber (1.7 million).

On his Vine, the photogenic selfie-obsessed teen posted a video – which we assume he thought was ‘funny’ – but was just homophobic and misinformed.

The post was taken down after a few hours, but not before it could be reposted by gay YouTube star Tyler Oakley.

He tweeted his 2.6 million followers this, accompanied by Nash’s original Vine:

Agent Coulson Won't Appear in Avengers: Age of Ultron; Will Likely Appear in Avengers 3

The relationship between S.H.I.E.L.D. Agent Phil Coulson was key to the development of the Avengers as a team in Marvel's The Avengers, in that his death was the catalyst for the group finally coming together to defeat Loki and his army.

And while that death didn't last long (he was already back on television around the time The Avengers came out on Blu-ray), its impact will apparently continue to be felt by Earth's Mightiest Heroes, as the team won't find out he's still alive and running a new, slimmed-down version of S.H.I.E.L.D. until at least Avengers 3.

That's according to the new issue of Total Film, on stands now, that says not to expect Coulson to show up in Avengers: Age of Ultron, and to look forward to his arc being resolved in the planned third film in the series.

Coulson will appear in the upcoming second season of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. Avengers: Age of Ultron is due in theaters May 1, 2015.

Lisa Rinna Joins The Real Housewives of Bev Hills!

It’s official! After mulling over offers to join The View and Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, Radaronline.com has lean red that actress turned reality TV star Lisa Rinna has signed on the dotted line to become a Bravolebrity — and the drama with her fellow cast-mates is already beginning.

Rinna’s decision comes after she made a trial run in front of the cameras at Kyle Richards’ White Party in late June. And while she was clearly a hit with the Bravo producers, who decided to make the formal offer the finally accepted, Rinna didn’t exactly win over all the members of the cast.

An insider previously told Radar, “Lisa is getting along with many of the ladies, with the exception of Brandi and Yolanda Foster. Brandi’s problem with Lisa is that she is happily married, and has two beautiful daughters. According to Brandi, Lisa has the perfect life, and she is very jealous of that.”

Last week, Glanville hit back on Twitter, insisting, “I’ve met Lisa Rinna several times & she was lovely & I would never be anything but happy for people with great families! #fact

But fans weren’t buying her digital olive branch, with one writing, “Yeah that is what is called a back-handed compliment . . .”

And another, @GoldengirlLisa chimed in, “Brandi doesn’t get along with anyone . . . “

Indeed, as Radar reported, the White Party also saw Glanville butt heads with former castmate Adrienne Maloof, who will be returning to the show in a limited capacity this season.

The ladies were spotted having an “out of control” verbal spat after “Adrienne attempted to have a civil conversation with Brandi,” a source said. “Brandi accused Adrienne of using her to get famous, and to get back on the show.”

But just days later, it appeared they had put the fight behind them when they exchanged air kisses during lunch in Beverly Hills.

Fans 'shocked' as all Garth Brooks gigs are axed

After much speculation about the Garth Brooks concerts going ahead in Croke Park, it has been announced that all five shows have been cancelled.

A statement released by Aiken Promotions said: "It is with great regret that Aiken Promotions today announce that the 5 concert Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event at Croke Park has been cancelled. No concerts will take place."

The statement continued: "The ticket return process will be outlined tomorrow [July 9].

"Aiken Promotions have exhausted all avenues regarding the staging of this event.

"We are very disappointed for the 400,000 fans who purchased tickets for The Garth Brooks Comeback Special Event."

The Minister for Arts, Heritage and the Gaeltacht Jimmy Deenihan has said that the cancellation of the concerts is an embarrassment for the country.

Speaking to journalists at Leinster House, Minister Deenihan said it was a huge disappointment and a huge loss of business for the capital.

The Minister reiterated that a whole new process for licensing concerts would have to be put in place so there could never be a repetition of what has happened.

Meanwhile, Colm Stephens, who chaired the recent public meeting Stop the Croke Park Concert Madness, said the residents first reaction was for the fans who have “left in the lurch”.

"We take no pleasure in this," he insisted. "There has to be an end to selling tickets before a licence has been granted for an event.

"What has happened should never happen again. Croke Park now has to do what they have promised and consult with residents before tickets for an event are sold."

Grumpy Cat's owners milkin' all that $$$ for Cheerios commercial

HOW do you sell a cereal known for decades as “The breakfast of champions” to younger consumers who may believe “champions” is a quaint word and may perceive breakfast as something from a food truck, washed down with an energy drink?

The Honey Nut Cheerios commercial with Grumpy Cat follows a spot for the brand with the rapper Nelly that has garnered more than 5.7 million views on YouTube since its introduction last August. “We’re looking for things relevant to consumers today in pop culture” to become “more socially connected,” said Gail Peterson, associate director of marketing for Honey Nut Cheerios and Multi Grain Cheerios at General Mills, so Honey Nut Cheerios will seem “like a new and relevant brand, not your grandmother’s cereal.”

Korean Cosmetics Brand Has a Regrettable Ad for Skin Cream

If you happen to walk by the department store at New Koreatown Plaza on 159-10 Northern Blvd. in Flushing, N.Y., you might be surprised to see this ad in the shop window:

Yes, that is a real advertisement, from Korean cosmetics brand ElishaCoy, casually asking shoppers a loaded question:

Do you wanna be white?

ElishaCoy is a "European styled organic skincare" brand that is part of the Korean cosmetics wave that has recently become a billion-dollar export business.

The product is ElishaCoy's "Always Nuddy CC Cream," with the "CC" standing for Complete Correction. CC creams are a type of skin-perfecting moisturizer that one makeup artist calls "the new and improved BB [cream]."

The question posed by the ad headline, however, leaves little ambiguity about what ElishaCoy is really trying to sell: a step closer to the hallowed European standard of beauty. In fairness, we all know that Koreans have long prized pale skin, but seeing that fixation exploited by ad copy feels not only manipulative, but actually insidious. In some ways, then, ElishaCoy has in fact created a perfect advertisement—it sells an impossible dream while also making its potential consumers feel worse about themselves.

We'll go ahead and chalk all of this up to a "lost in translation" moment—but if ElishaCoy truly wants to cross over to the U.S. market, it should probably hire a native English speaker to its ad team.

The world seemed to stop spinning all because High School Musical kissed Blue Crush. Because no one saw it coming. She was supposedly with Cara Delevingne; he was supposedly too busy taking his shirt off to fall in love. Kreskin smoking PCP in a sensory deprivation tank wouldn't have been able to predict those two as a couple.

But you needn't worry that Zachelle will be the final undoing of western civilization (the Comfort Wipe is still in the lead for that accomplishment). It's not the first time the world has collectively gasped and blurted out "Wait, those two are a couple?" Here is our look at the most bizarre, unholy, world-ending celebrity couples of all time.

The demo shows off the capabilities of the new CAS and general character creation. There's no word from EA as to whether there will be more options in the base game or if this is the full extent of CAS for the base game.

Stacey Dash: Kanye West Should Try Getting Raped in Prison

Over the weekend, Kanye West debuted 20 brand new songs during a concert in London. But it was one comment he made between songs that has gotten the most attention. Though no video cameras were allowed inside, those in attendance reported that at one point the rapper compared facing the paparazzi to being “raped.”

On Tuesday, Fox News’ Outnumbered took on West’s comments, placing them in the larger context of Hollywood actors like Charlize Theron and Gwyneth Paltrow who have made similarly insensitive comments about the perils of fame. “What is wrong with these people?” co-host Sandra Smith asked.

As the show’s resident Hollywood representative, Stacey Dash reacted a bit more strongly than the rest of the panel. “For Kanye to say ‘rape,’ maybe he needs to spend some time on Rikers Island, go to Rikers for a while, and then he’ll know what rape is.” She then defended the paparazzi as “just doing their job.”

JLaw, Marion Cotillard, Charlize Theron & Zhang Ziyi at Dior Fall 2014 HC Show

With Monday’s Dior show, Paris Fashion Week is officially in full swing. To quote SNL’s Stefon, it had everything: a giant wall of Diorchids, skirts so big they made famed fashion blogger Leandra Medine comment “baby does got back,” seating in the round at the Musée Rodin, and last but not least, an appearance by three of their best-loved representatives/spokesmodels, Marion Cotillard, Charlize Theron, Jennifer Lawrence, and two of their favorite frequent flyers (or rather, wearers) Emma Watson and Zhang Ziyi.

The show itself may have been the epitome of gorgeousness. Models walked the runway in delicately detailed tones of blush, cream, and black, in every silhouette from classic gamine-esque suits to to ultra-feminine winter coats to voluminous old-world ball gowns all surrounded by thousands (if not millions) of white orchids. Yes, it was quite the sight for sore eyes, and as you can imagine, and ultra well-dressed movie stars did little to hurt the tableau.
