IronMan 2 - War Machine!

The poster says it all. War Machine will make his first appearance on film in Iron Man 2. Oh... and it arrives in theaters May 7th 2010.

If you are not up on your Marvel Universe characters, War Machine is Tony Stark's military buddy Rhody. Don Cheadle replaces actor Terrence Howard as Rhody in Iron Man 2. Says Cheadle about the change, "The sort of ancillary buzz around it was kind of weird, kind of strange. Terrence is a friend of mine. But the actual playing it, I just felt like it was my role. I wasn't made to feel like I had to sort of take care of what was done before. I really feel like I could make it my own."

The War Machine armor is unlike Iron Man's. War Machine is built for combat, steeped in wrist mounted and shoulder mounted firepower.

Tiger Wood's statement after the accident...

�This is a private matter and I want to keep it that way. Although I understand there is curiosity, the many false, unfounded and malicious rumors that are currently circulating about my family and me are irresponsible.The only person responsible for the accident is me. My wife, Elin, acted courageously when she saw I was hurt and in trouble. She was the first person to help me. Any other assertion is absolutely false. This incident has been stressful and very difficult for Elin, our family and me. I appreciate all the concern and well wishes that we have received. But, I would also ask for some understanding that my family and I deserve some privacy no matter how intrusive some people can be.�

As you all know, I had a single-car accident earlier this week, and sustained some injuries. I have some cuts, bruising and right now I�m pretty sore. This situation is my fault, and it�s obviously embarrassing to my family and me. I�m human and I�m not perfect. I will certainly make sure this doesn�t happen again.''

Anthony Michael Hall In Trouble for Biting Girlfriend

Anthony Michael Hall's come a long way since The Breakfast Club and Sixteen Candles, apparently. He got into quite the spat with his girlfriend Diana Falzone, and details have emerged that the actor "bit his girlfriend's forehead" and "pushed, shoved and spit at" her during the domestic violence incident, which took place around 2 am on November 10 in Falzone's apartment. Hall then left the apartment, and returned drunk later that morning and pounded on the door until the cops came and escorted him out. Falzone recently ended the couple's year-long relationship, and has obtained a temporary restraining order against Hall. Hall, who suffers from bipolar disorder and has previously battled a drinking problem, was questioned by police, but is not currently under investigation.

Worst Drive Ever

Tiger Woods didn't drive too well this weekend. During the wee hours of Friday morning, Woods drove his car into a fire hydrant and into tree. Thankfully, his wife heroically rescued him by bashing out the rear window of his SUV with - what else? - a golf club. Woods went to the hospital with minor lacerations to his face. He didn't suffer any serious injuries.

Then the morning news coverage woke up and dug a little deeper into Woods' one car accident.

Reports surfaced earlier this week stating that Tiger Woods was involved with another woman, Rachel Uchitel. Tiger Woods's wife, Elin Nordegren, confronted Woods about the alleged affair. There was a domestic dispute at Woods's dwelling in an exclusive gated community in Florida. According to published reports, Woods' wife became physically abusive toward Woods during a heated argument, thus causing the lacerations and bruising on his face. Contrary to the original story, Mrs. Woods was reacting to her husband's adulterous behavior, not saving the day in her superhero costume.

Woods is one of the most successful athletes of all time. He is the first billion dollar man in professional athletics, due largely to multiple successful endorsements and tournament earnings. Woods is a very private man. In Tiger Woods' camp, untrustworthy associates don't stay employed for long.

Since Friday's accident, Tiger Woods released a statement addressing the accident and the rumors about his infidelity. He calls the rumors "false, unfounded, and malicious". Woods asks that the public allow his family and himself time to deal with their own problems privately.

Is Batman a Black Lantern?

Months ago we at PCM had our ears to the ground listening to the rumblings in the DC Universe regarding Batman's death. Speculation was rampant. We researched the truth of where the story was going.

Was Batman lost in time? Did he die at the hands of his father? Was he to be re-animated as a Black Lantern? Who was the Black Glove? We provided all the answers in an earlier article.

Now the worm has turned. DC has made it's big reveal. Batman, or at least the body of Batman has become a Black Lantern. What does this mean? Is Bruce Wayne truly dead and gone forever? Or is he banished in time? Grant Morrison's Blackest Night story title says it all. But notice there may be a clue in that name. Notice that Night is not Knight. Could that be the clue that the Batman in his story is in fact an impostor? Perhaps that is the answer to the mystery of Nekron changing Batman back to a skull after kills everyone.

One thing is certain. Many readers are on board with this story as this Black Lantern Batman raises hell with his fellow Super Heroes. The Black Lantern Batman can kill instantly with a look.
There are many Black Lanterns now, Batman is the newest on Earth.

The Black Lantern Corps is composed of re-animated bodies of former heroes, villains and even normal people from all across The Universe. The Black Lantern Corps is powered by the corpse of The Anti-Monitor (encased in a battery) and are led by the The Black Hand.
The question of who becomes a Black Lantern is also up for discussion. Many believe it has to do with the person accepting death. Those that accept their death do not awake as Black Lanterns, those that did not want to die will respond to the call of the Black Lantern.
If you are into comic books, this is a story that is gaining momentum. You may want to pick it up and join in to see where it goes. If you need some more back story to understand the history of Bruce Wayne as a Black Lantern read Batman Becomes A God.

Is Tiger Woods Heading for A Billion Dollar Divorce

TMZ is stoking the fire of Tiger Woods affair while Internet searches for "Tiger Woods Affair" have reached 900,000. TMZ claims there was a fight just before the accident and that Woods is having an affair with a NY socialite.

As if that were not enough to create a buzz, The National Enquirer is quickly joining the fray reporting that Woods may have had an affair with Rachel Uchitel. She claims she has many 'sexting' messages from Woods. While she is known as serial liar, her timing may garner her some attention non-the-less.

Is this all over nothing? Speculators ask, "Why then was Tiger leaving home at 2:30 am in the first place?"

Meanwhile police on the scene of his accident were quick to point out there was no indication of domestic violence and that Elin Nordegren (his wife) was frantic and upset.

Windermere Police Chief Daniel Saylor reported to AP, "He had lacerations to his upper and lower lip, and blood in his mouth. My My officer asked her how she got him out of the vehicle and she said she had to break one of the windows out with a golf club."

Saylor continued, "It was her husband laying on the ground, so she was pretty upset," he said. "My officers had no indication of domestic violence or anything like that."

The tabloids are hoping this blows up. It will be the biggest divorce in history. A divorce dividing up a billion dollars.

Tiger Woods Injured in Car Accident

At approximately 2:25 a.m Friday morning, pro golfer Tiger Woods pulled out of his driveway in his black 2009 Escalade and struck a fire hydrant, then hit a tree in a neighbor's yard outside his Florida home. He was subsequently taken to Health Central Hospital in Ocoee, Florida, where he was reported to be in serious condition and was treated for facial lacerations. It is also reported that alcohol did not play a role in the accident. Good news arrived at around 3 PM, when his agent claimed Woods had been released from the hospital and was doing fine.

Lady Gaga Feeds her Little Monsters

OK, this kick of Lady Gaga's calling her fans little monsters is a bit lame, but she is far from lame.

This week hundreds of fans waited outside a Best Buy in LA overnight for no more than her autograph. Getting word of the crowd, she sent them pizza. Actually is was 80 cheese pizza's and the tab came to approximately $1,000.

Lady Gaga tweeted: Sending all my little monsters little pizzas for waiting all night for me at Best Buy. I hop you're hungry... eat up. I love u!

Who was the lucky pizza shop? Papa John's.

That's not all. The wait really paid for some fans as she gave away a lock of her blond hair, a jigsaw puzzle and a personal note.

Upon arriving she announced, "I will sign every single one of your CD's" drawing loud cheers and screams from adoring fans. Lady Gaga is quickly learning how to treat fans with respect. For a dance queen, she may last a while...

'Jon & Kate Plus 8' Officially Over

Monday night, the final episode of "Jon & Kate Plus 8" aired on TLC after five seasons. The final hour featured the Gosselin's eight children touring a fire station with Jon, then visiting a local dairy farm with Kate. The show was once loved by audiences all over the country because of wholesome scenes like these, but in the past year the show gained notoriety for the bitter divorce between Jon and Kate, bringing production to a halt. TLC planned on creating a new show called 'Kate Plus 8,' giving Jon less of the spotlight, but he had a sudden change of heart about having his kids filmed for national television and kept the show from getting off the ground.

The estranged couple were filmed separately, and both aired their opinions about the show's end. Kate claimed, "I feel like it's been taken from us, from me and the kids," and said that she felt the end was "needless. It's useless, it's totally avoidable...This is a very bittersweet goodbye for me because the kids are already missing it," while Jon told the camera, "Our marriage fell apart and I felt like I was free. And I kinda took advantage of it for a while and didn't really think about my actions, obviously, until I started getting paparazzi and written about. But that's maturing. That's growing up."

Paula Deen Smacked in the Face with Ham

For the "that's gotta hurt" category: celebrity chef Paula Deen was volunteering for the Hosea Feed the Hungry food drive in Atlanta, Georgia, and the thanks she got for her trouble was a renegade ham to the face. The incident was accidental, as the ham was merely being tossed for loading and Deen's face just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. Despite needing to ice her nose afterward, the chef laughed it off and went back to being her jolly Southern self. Lucky for us, the whole thing was caught on tape. Check it out:

Miley Cyrus and Her Brother Want Matching Tattoos

Metro Station rocker Trace Cyrus has several tattoos, and after getting a matching design to his singer father Billy Ray Cyrus he now can’t wait until 17-year-old Miley is old enough to get her first piece of body art.

“I already have a matching one with my dad, there’s no reason I wouldn’t do it with my siblings," he said. "Someone you’re that close to, it’s something that means something to you obviously, so why wouldn’t you do it?”

Miley still has another year to go before she can get some body art to match her brother, but the siblings – who are currently touring together – often swap relationship advice with one another.

“She helps me with my girl problems, I talk to her about boys she’s talking to," single Trace told OK! magazine. "She has a smart head on her shoulders and anything that she decides is going to be the right decision.”

Trace, 20, also shared that he and his mother Tish are getting matching tattoos as well.

“My mom’s going to get a ribcage tattoo that is definitely the biggest tattoo she’s ever gotten," he said. "I’m definitely proud of her for that. It will definitely be a little bit different of an experience for me. I’ve never gone to get a tattoo with my mom ever. She’s taken me to get a tattoo but we’ve never both gotten one at the same time.”

FHL - Adoptee's Worst Nightmare

Matthew Roberts found out he was adopted when he was ten years old. Roberts spent over a decade locating his mother with the help of social services. When she was finally located, his mother informed him that he was once named "Lawrence Alexander". When Roberts inquired about his father, his mother remained mum on the topic. Little did he know that his biological father is Charles Manson, one of the most notorious serial killers of all time.

Charles Manson and his family committed a string of murders in the summer of 1969. He has been incarcerated for the past three decades. It took Roberts five years to drum up the courage to contact Manson. When he finally sent his father letters in prison, Roberts received several responses right away. He cryptically signed off each letter with a swastika. Manson told Roberts: "You got the same father I got. A hobo just left on the midnight train and died, lost at sea."

Robert's mother, Terry, was enamored with Manson's charisma and boarded a bus with Manson and his family. They wound up in San Francisco, where Terry claims Manson raped her during a drug binge. She returned home shortly after and gave birth nine months later on March 22, 1968. Terry gave the child up for adoption.

When Matthew Roberts met his mother, she told him he looked exactly like his father. However, Roberts remains optimistic about the situation. He stated: "I don't even like the fact that I'm big. It makes me even scarier. My hero is Gandhi. I'm an extremely non-violent, peaceful person and a vegetarian. I don't even kill bugs. I've had long hair all my life. I could make it go away, but I can't let the world and their fears change me."

Justin Bieber Shuts Down NY Mall

Tween girls camped out overnight or arrived during the wee morning hours in Nassau County, New York this weekend. The reason? A chance to see fifteen year old singing sensation, Justin Bieber. Three thousand girls began pushing and shoving to get a closer look at JB, but wound up causing a raucous. Island Def Jams artist Bieber was scheduled to make an appearance at Roosevelt Field Mall, but he never made it into the building.

An Island Def Jam vice president was arrested at the event for not cooperating during crowd control proceedings. Bieber and his mother were turned away at the door by police. He later told WBLI Radio that the police "threatened to arrest my mom and I." Five people were taken to the local hospital with minor injuries.

Somewhere, the Jonas Brothers are sighing in relief. The tween girl spotlight has finally shifted onto someone else.

Lochte ends Phelps's reign as swimmer of year

LOS ANGELES (AFP) � Ryan Lochte beat out superstar Michael Phelps and veteran Aaron Peirsol for male swimmer of the year Sunday at USA Swimming's Golden Goggles awards.

Rebecca Soni nabbed female swimmer of the year honors, while Phelps, who earned a leading six nominations, was honored for delivering the men's race of the year and for a world championship relay performance.

Lochte ended Phelps' two-year reign as male swimmer of the year, thanks to world record-setting triumphs in the 200m individual medley and 4x200m freestyle relay at the world championships in Rome.

He earned five medals, including four golds in Rome.

"I just want to say thank you to my parents. They've been 100 percent with me my entire swimming career," Lochte said. "Aaron Peirsol and Michael Phelps, you guys have pushed me to limits I didn't even know, and I wouldn't be here without you."

Lochte also shared the relay performance of the year award, for the 4x100m free relay in Rome in which he, Phelps, Matt Grevers and Nathan Adrian defeated Russia as favorites France flopped.

Phelps was honored for his scintillating 100m butterfly triumph in Rome. He smashed the 50-second barrier with a time of 49.82sec and handed Milorad Cavic a bigger defeat than the one the Serbian suffered by a fingertip at the Beijing Olympics.

Soni set a world record and won gold in the 100m breaststroke in Rome.

The award-winners were decided by fans in online votin

Follow-Up: Demi Moore W Magazine Photoshop Mystery

Just this week PCM reported that Demi Moore's W Magazine cover may have some serious issues. While others in the media speculated Demi may have had a hip-reduction via-Photoshop, we asserted that she may in fact had significantly more done to her photo.

See our previous article complete with detailed photos: Demi Moore's Body Replaced by W Magazine.

We contacted Demi directly after she tweeted a photo she claimed was the 'original' photo from the magazine shoot. As she choose her words carefully tweeting: Here is the original image people my hips were not retouched don't let these people bullxxxx you!

PCM questioned Demi asking, "was this photo direct from camera?" to which we received no answer. PCM speculated from the onset that perhaps what Demi received from W Magazine and what the original photo looked like at the time it was taken may indeed be two separate images.

At worst another model's body was used as a template and sampled over to her photo for enhancements. At best, Demi has just plain reversed time.

Is it stands now, W Magazine has finally stated that the photo was retouched but still leaves Demi Moore to fight this battle on her own.

Now the photographer who started this entire uproar (not the photographer that took the actual picture) has spoken up in response to Demi's very assertive tweet. He says in a communication to our friends at

I saw your article on the Demi Moore Photoshop flub - I’m the photographer who started the whole thing - and after giving it a lot of thought (and being accused of “bullsh*t” by Demi overnight), I’m raising the stakes:

While I really feel bad that Demi is on defense over this, I also don’t like being accused of “bullsh*t.” So, let’s find out who’s bullsh*tting. This isn’t about her and it isn’t about retouching (I’ve no problem with either). It’s about a blooper, basically. The cover is a blooper; it goes on the art department’s wall of shame. So what? We
all make mistakes. That’s got *nothing* to do with Demi. She’s a beautiful woman with or without retouching. And where the hell is W Magazine on this? Why are they forcing Demi to address it? It’s not fair to her.

There's more to this but in short, the question remains unanswered. At some point this could heat up and bubble over, but the entire fiasco could be put to rest if W Magazine and Demi Moore would provide some proof to back up the cover shot of Demi.

New Moon Mania!

It's just amazing! The entire female population has gone to the movies! You can't enter an parking lot near a movie theater without struggling to find a man in the crowd. It's an exciting time to cheer on Vampires that could work at Starbucks. Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson have perhaps replaced the notion of what a Vampire is. They are loving and kind, romantic and endearing.

So when do we get more of this smart and intellegent reworking of the vampire concept? Well... with the premier taking place just a day ago the DVD release date has already been announced. OK sorta... The third film Eclipse will be in theaters June 30th of 2010.

That's not even a year away! The wait won't be so long, that's important because women are not like men, they won't tolerate waiting as long as men do. Think of it, Lord of the Rings would be a year long wait and Star Wars was generally a two year wait. As for the New Moon DVD release date... Don't look for it in your Christmas stocking. The release date for DVD is approximately three months after the film finally leaves theaters. Can you say happy Valentines?

How is it the release date for Eclipse is so firm? The film makers pulled a Matrix/Kill Bill. However while those films were completed in back-to-back, Eclipse was merely filmed in quicker succession as Hollywood was confident New Moon would be a major success. The film just wrapped shooting and is post production now. It's basically already completed. Yes, it's done already and you can't just watch it! Guess the ladies will just have to wait...

Miley Cyrus Tour Bus Driver Dies in Accident

Miley Cyrus tour bus was involved in a single vehicle accident in Virginia about an hour south of Richmond. It occurred around 8:30 AM on a long stretch of I-85. I-85 is a quiet Interstate road often used driving south to Georgia. The bus was headed to Greensboro, North Carolina for Sunday concert.

Over a dozen passengers were on board, some reports indicate only two passengers were injured and all exited through the windshield after the bus veered off the road and careened into a ditch. The driver of the bus was killed. Miley Cyrus was not on the bus at the time of the accident as it carried non-performing staff members. There is no statement from Miley at the time of this report.

Oprah Pulls The Plug On Her Talk Show!

Oprah became tearful when making the announcement on air claiming:

Demi Moore's Body Replaced By W Magazine

In a recent high profile row, Ralph Lauren took flack for blatant outrageous Photoshopping of models. But this has not reformed the industry. Instead, magazines like W have simply decided to jam more false images of how people look down our throats. After all, who is to stop them?

Check out what it appears to be 26 year old Anja Rubik's superimposed body... scratch that - her body was attached to Demi Moores for the sake of a better cover image. You have to wonder, did Demi even wear the same Balmain dress?

There has to be an extreme effort to put forth to take a woman that is 47 and make her look like a woman much younger. The answer may be beyond Photoshop, it could very well be full body replacement with the use of Photoshop. Representatives from W claim 'nothing unusual' was done but of course that means nothing because Photoshopping is standard practice in the industry. The blogsphere has gone nuts questioning if the photo is retouched. This writer asserts the photo is both retouched with other significant changes.

The story is evolving by the minute. Demi being the high-tech tweeter has joined the fray and insists in a tweet: Here is the original image people my hips were not touched don't let these people bullxxxx you!

I've always been a big Demi Moore fan. I mean no disrespect in any way, there seems to be a great body evidence (no pun intended) that the body in her photo is not her. Offering up a photo she received from W magazine isn't the same as the original photo before any staffer touched it. Perhaps she can clarify this and put he matter to rest. Until then, a lot of speculation will continue. If nothing else people are becoming more aware of the antics magazines and advertisers pull and it does need to stop.

Until we figure the truth, here is the cover everyone is talking about. Let's just hope that until we do know the absolute truth, it doesn't sell a lot of magazines. If it is a true photo, then I say we reward Demi and the Magazine and all buy two copies.

The Power Of The Bangle Bracelet

Wonder-Woman did it well when she incorporated this accessory to the forefront of her USA-themed body slimmer (ahem), I mean outfit. Big ones, skinny ones, chain linked, wooden, plastic, or metal;bracelets were and still are a staple in almost every woman's jewelry collection. In this fast approaching age of 2010, a girl can't freakin' pile on enough. So just do it. Mix em and stack them. They shouldn't be matchy-matchy---I like the ones that look like you may have purchased them abroad, the ones that might evoke a topic of discussion ,perhaps with a common stranger. And while it's true that a person may hear them before seeing them, it's probably better to just be seen. In other words, don't shake whatcha jewla' gave ya---not too much. Just remember, true style mavens don't need to drum up attention for themselves. The attention comes to them ;) Oh, and I hope you like the single bracelet pictures I posted above. They're all designer, and in this order: 1)Burberry 2)Fendi 3)Hermes and 4)Gucci . And you're damn right I'm getting me one, just as soon as my money gets right---because those fancy named versions don't come cheap at $300 and better a pop. You may not have asked me, butr here;s my advice. While we're keeping it frugal keep it fabulous by being creative;layer up on the inexpensive bracelets first. (P.S. Don't layer bracelet cuffs people. I don't want you looking ridiculous, or telling people that you got it from a post on the Cityrocka jewelry blog).

Kristen Stewart Chats New Moon with Jimmy Fallon

Twilight's Kristen Stewart was on Jimmy Fallon last night where she talked about New Moon, baking pies, and Martha Stewart's dream about Robert Pattinson. These clips will help get you pumped up about the premiere of New Moon tomorrow!

Robert Pattinson Confirms all Rumors on Today Show

This morning on the Today Show Matt Lauer asked Twilight star Robert Pattinson about all of the rumors that have been circulating about him and Pattinson jokingly confirmed them all. Lauer asked Pattinson about dating, being engaged, and even drugs.

"You've been dating nonstop," Lauer asked.

"Literally nonstop, yes," Pattinson said.

"You're dating a costar whose name rhymes with Tristan Belwart," Lauer said.

"Tristan Blewart ... there was a Liston Hewitt last year," Pattinson said. "That would be true, yes."

Pattinson also addressed the pressures of his sudden fame. "I speak in an American accent when I speak to the crowd," he said. "I feel like it's acting. I mean, I think it's the only way I don't go completely mad."

Lady Gaga Early Work at NY Talent Show 2005

It's become trendy lately to find early Lada GaGa performances. Here is the latest. She's got that bump on her nose, she's got her brunette hair and she's playing her trademark piano with soulful flair.

Her first song is Captivated and the second tune Electric Kiss. The judges afterwards fawn over her and somehow compare her Nora Jones?

Johnny Depp Named Sexiest Man Alive

Johnny Depp has been named People's Sexiest Man Alive for the second time. He is the third man to receive this honor, along with Brad Pitt and George Clooney. A spokesperson for People Magazine stated, "At 46, the father of two still reigns as Hollywood's most irresistible iconoclast; as one-of-a-kind as his beloved 15 year-old-boots and as smoldering as his favorite Cuban cigars. He has had women swooning since his days as a teen detective on '21 Jump Street'."

Reports circulated earlier this week that Twilight hottie Robert Pattinson was taking the Sexiest Man crown this year. However, Depp's sexiness reigns supreme.

Hugh Jackman, last year's recipient of this prestigious honor, is elated that the "pressure's off" of him now. He says, "I can be a slob again."

Also featured on 2009's Sexiest Men list include: Ryan Reynolds, Jake Gyllenhaal, David Beckham, Bradley Cooper, Gilles Marini, Nick Cannon, Chris Daughtry, and Robert Downey Jr.

Father of Boy Who Accused Michael Jackson of Molestation Commits Suicide

Evan Chandler - the father of Jordan Chandler, who accused Michael Jackson of molestation in the 1990s- was found dead in his Jersey City apartment. He was 65 years old. Officials claim Chandler was found with a .38-caliber revolver in his hand, but there was no note.

In the 1990s, the Chandlers were awarded 20 million dollars from Michael Jackson, although Jackson was never officially charged with sexual abuse.

Jordan Chandler had since estranged himself from his father. He even went as far as getting a restraining order against his father. Evan Chandler allegedly hit his son with a dumbbell.

Family and friends have come forward stating that Chandler had become increasingly more depressed. He suffered from wild mood swings and depression.

Nicole Richie Thinks of Joel Madden as her Husband

Nicole Richie appeared in court on Monday to get a restraining order against the paparazzi that caused her car accident last month. During the court proceedings Richie's lawyer referred to Joel Madden as Richie's husband and she did not correct him.

"A few of the paparazzi had become more aggressive...trying to get in front of me, trying to get beside me, ran a red light," Richie said during her testimony. "I was hysterically crying."

Her lawyer Mark Geragos asked, "Did you call your husband?" and Richie replied with "yes."

Richie and Madden are not actually married, but the two have been together for several years and have two children, Harlow and Sparrow.

The accused paparazzi were ordered to stay 50 yards away from Richie and her two children until 2012. The restraining order does not cover Madden since he and Richie are not married.

Vanessa Hudgen�s Birthday Surprise

�High School Musical� star Vanessa Hudgens has hinted she wants boyfriend Zac Efron to organise a party for her 21st birthday in December.

Vanessa Hudgens wants Zac Efron to throw her a surprise birthday party.

The �High School Musical� star has been �dropping hints� about what she expects from her co-star and boyfriend Zac when she turns 21 in December.

The young beauty said: �I�m hoping someone will throw me a big party. I�m just like, �Someone throw me a party� because I haven�t had a birthday party since I was like nine years old so I think it�s about time.

�It�s a great excuse. I was like, �At 16 I�ll have a party� and it never happened. Then I was like, �18, get a party!� Never happened. And so it better happen this year. I�m getting a party this year. I know it!�

When it comes to birthday presents, Vanessa isn�t fussy - as long as it�s not an engagement ring.

Even though the star has been dating Zac for around three years, she recently revealed she isn�t ready to settle down.

She said: �I think marriage and starting a family is great, but I�m so focused on my career right now that it doesn�t really cross my mind.�

Jennifer Lopez titles album, premieres new single live Sunday


The wait is nearly over for Jennifer Lopez�s first single to be released from an album dubbed �Love ?�.

Titled �Louboutins,� Lopez�s new single will make its debut not on radio or online but at Sunday�s American Music Awards.

Joining a line up that includes Whitney Houston, Janet Jackson, Alicia Keys and more, Lopez will perform the new single before a live audience.

Speaking with 102.7 FM�s DJ Skee earlier this week, Lopez discussed the single and forthcoming performance.

�It�s basically about when you get to that point in a bad relationship and you�re like: �I really have to leave. It�s just not good for me�, � said Lopez. �This song is actually about when you�ve made the decision-I�m out.�

While Lopez dismissed claims that the song was related to her current life and marriage (Marc Anthony), she did tell DJ Skee that she�s had to put on her Louboutins on and walk in the past.

�I�ve had to do it� sometimes you just gotta do it. You gotta put on your Louboutins and be like, �This is what you�re missing..�

Earlier this year, Lopez released a record titled �Fresh Out The Oven� featuring Pitbull under her nickname Lola. Contrary to reports calling the record a single, Lopez says it may not make the album but could be released as a bonus track.

Lopez�s forthcoming album, her first in nearly three years, is due for release early 2010.

International Men's Day November 19th

Are you taking care of your man? Well, here is a chance to show him how much you appreciate him. Why? Because November 19th is International Men's Day.

In the spirit of equality and less gender discrimination against men, the idea is somewhat new. In 1999 the day was launched posthumously in Trinidad and Tobago.

International Men's day is meant to showcase the unheralded achievements of men such as being good husbands, or fathers. The United Nations has gotten behind the event to offer gender balance, celebrate mens achievements and promote an anti-sexist environment.

Ashlee Simpson Defends Sister Jessica

Ashlee Simpson doesn't understand why the media criticizes her big sister about her body. Jessica Simpson is best known for her achieved chest and petite frame. But whenever she gains a pound or wears an unflattering outfit (horizontal stripes don't work on most people, sweetie), magazines publish distorted pictures of her looking less than lovely. Ashlee stated to Women's Health Magazine, "My sister has an incredible body. I feel sorry for anyone who would judge her, because she's one sexy lady."

Jessica may be "one sexy lady", but she is often the target of media scrutiny because of her interesting history. She got divorced from Nick Lachey after filming the show Newlyweds, fulfilling possibly the most ironic moment in television history. Jessica also had a string of failed relationships, including one with musician John Mayer and Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo. In recent months, her beloved puppy Daisy was snatched up by a coyote, never to be seen again. Her tumultuous life is media gold and that is why they continue to write about her.

The media should back off of Simpson when it comes to her weight issues. Eating disorders and obesity issues make headlines daily. Constantly harassing an individual about such personal issues can have a long-lasting negative impact. Ashlee Simpson stated, "It's disgusting that people would say those things." Saying mean things about weight isn't necessarily disgusting, but definitely unnecessary and crude.

Carrie Prejean's Biggest Mistake or Biggest Mistakes?

She had to open her mouth. In fact she even printed it...“God gave us our bodies, and it’s perfectly right that we use them in ways where we can give glory to God by making our bodies, our temples of the Holy Spirit, strong and fast.”

It appears Miss California or should we say Miss Hypocrite wasn't in just one 'biggest mistake' of her life as she's tried to explain. According to Radar Online Carrie Prejean has an additional 7 solo video sex recordings complete with moaning in ecstasy. She also has another 30 photos, which are not naked 'fashion' photos, but more photos sexual in nature.

At this time, the video and photos have not been circulated around the Internet so don't go running torrent searches just yet...

Carrie Prejean really needs to back track and get herself together. You can't call Larry King inappropriate for asking questions related a legal case, call him inappropriate only to know you've got plenty of inappropriate behavior of yourself on tape and celluloid. What is this woman thinking? You have to think what will be uncovered next and what will come out of her mouth next? The only reason any media source is putting her in front of a microphone now is to see how much damage she can continue to do to her own character. She's a train wreck taking place in front of our eyes.

Megan Fox Speculates On Jennifer's Body

Lately the blog press and gossip hounds have been picking on Megan Fox. Mostly because she brought it on herself with her anti-men anti-director and holier than though attitude about how she's perceived by the media in films. For all her uppity comments, you have to respect her will to stand her ground and her individuality. In recent interviews she's been pressed on why she thinks Jennifer's Body wasn't a box office hit. Megan defended her work recognizing it as good fun. "The scenes in which I was covered in blood and break through glass were amazing. In one scene, I'm shoving a whole chicken in my mouth - a whole chicken! I love it; it is so different and original."

Jennifer's Body
is original, it features her as a undead lesbian cheerleader that eats men. Megan couldn't explain why it didn't stand out among Halloween flicks, "It was so cheese-tastic and so gross and so cheap, I loved it. It was so like how I used to dress when I was in high school because I had no money."

Megan may end up back with no money the way her career is heading now. Megan believes that as woman she can use her looks to path of success. It seems her choices don't coincide with her logic. The past summer she belittled the director of Transformers and ridiculed the film which lead to the film staff posting a blistering blog about Megan's bad attitude and how nobody liked her.

In many interviews she's claimed that she can control men simply because she has female body parts, Megan was explicit about it.

Let's hope Jennifer's Body makes enough money on DVD they make another. Megan may find this is the only work she can find if she keeps up her attitude about anything other than her own choices being the best.

Bernie Madoff's loot Gets Liberated

It will never repay the thousands of victims he stole billions from but the right thing has start somewhere. The liquidation of his physical assets is far from complete, here are some of the things you could have had if you were at the auction on Saturday November 14th in New York which featured jewelry. In total an estimated 188 items were auctioned off.

Perhaps that most attractive piece was Madoff's NY Met's Jacket. New York Aquarium worker Mario Ramirez had designs on it. He attended the auction an envelope of $3,500. His big plan? To sell it on ebay but only after he wore it for a season showing off Madoff's name emblazoned on the back. Sadly his $3,500 wasn't enough. In a heated bidding war the jacket ended up going for $14,500.

Other items of note were Madoff's duck decoys which ended up being fiercely bid for at $3,250-$4,750.

Oh... and don't feel too bad you missed out on these items. You can bid on his Yachts on November 17th! Visit

This second volume features the casts take on such pop powerhouse tunes as Kelly Clarkson’s “My Life Would Suck Without You,” Cyndi Lauper’s “True Colors,” Van Halen’s “Jump” and a really special version of John Lennon’s “Imagine” (See below for full track listing). Glee is infectious and the music is sure to bring joy, which is exactly why the Chicago Tribune exclaimed “Any TV show soundtrack that induces people of all ages to dance around the kitchen is doing something right.”

The full track listing for “Glee: The Music, Volume 2” is as follows:
“Proud Mary”
“Endless Love”
“I’ll Stand By You”
“Don’t Stand So Close To Me / Young Girl”
“(You’re) Having My Baby”
“Lean On Me”
“Don’t Make Me Over”
“True Colors”
“Smile” (cover of Lily Allen)
“Smile” (cover of Charlie Chaplin)
“And I Am Telling You I’m Not Going”

Make Your Own Sky King

We've all made a paper airplane, usually we have two choices. The long jet, or the short stunt plane. Neither flies all that great. What if you could combine the two for a snub nosed paper airplane that actually flies GREAT!

That's just what Takuo Toda of Japan did in 2009. His invention was recognized by Time Magazine as one of the year's top 50 inventions. And he should know about inventing a great paper airplane. Toda is chairman of the Japan Origami Airplane Association. "Since I was about 4 years old, I’ve been able to make really good paper planes and commit the steps to memory. His ambition has resulted in the Sky King paper airplane which has flown for a record 27.9 seconds. It's not his only plane design, he has over 700 in his resume. He hopes one day to reach a flight time of 35 seconds which he has accomplished in practice.

Like the paper airplane you made as a kid, the Sky King is made of a single sheet of paper, which can be a your basic oblong notebook sheet or copy sheet (8.5 x 11). You won't need any tape or glue either.

Fly it inside and you'll think, nice - not much different than other paper airplanes. Take it outside and it will really impress you. You'll get long flight time results. Here is a video of how to make the Sky King courtesy of Wired.

Nicolas Cage was Stalked by a Mime

‘Bangkok Dangerous’ actor Nicolas Cage joked about his ordeal at the hands of a “silent but maybe deadly” performer but admitted he found the white-faced stranger “unsettling”.

“I guess it would fall into the stalker category more or less," Cage said.

"I was being stalked by a mime—silent, but maybe deadly. Somehow, this mime would appear on the set of ‘Bringing Out the Dead’ and start doing strange things."

"I have no idea how it got past security. Finally, the producers took some action and I haven't seen the mime since. But it was definitely unsettling."

A mime artist performs without speaking, expressing stories through bodily movement alone, and traditionally paints their face white.

Having a mime for a stalker would be pretty creepy because you certainly wouldn't hear them coming.

Michael Jackson Wanted to Create Robotic Twin

The late King of Pop Michael Jackson underwent several three dimensional scans in 1996 so a virtual reality ‘robotic’ replica of himself could be made.

The scans could now be used to recreate the Thriller star in pop videos, computer games or even films.

The anonymous US businessman who owned the images has reportedly been trying to sell them for $1 million. “The data has been in our archives since he had the scans," the businessman told Britain's Daily Star newspaper. "The thing about this data is it immortalised him at the age of 37, before his nose was disfigured and when he was in the prime of his life.”

Apparently Michael’s funeral was nearly cancelled at the last minute due to costs.

Around $1 million was estimated to have been spent on the funeral, which took place on September 3.

Court papers have revealed that lawyers acting for the ‘Billie Jean’ star’s mother Katherine had filed a request to the administrators of his estate to pay for the funeral bills just three days before the funneral.

The lawyers stated that if the funeral home and local police department’s bills were not paid by the next day, the burial would not go ahead as planned. Administrators were able to pay the bills in time so that the funeral did not have to be delayed.

Katherine’s lawyers admitted the cost of the funeral was high, but added it was: “Entirely commensurate with the decedent’s worldwide status as an entertainer and the world’s grief over his death.”

Can We Stop Giving Carrie Prejean Airtime?

Even conservatives that want to get behind Carrie Prejean for her one time stand at the Miss USA Pageant have had enough of Carrie Prejean's antics and attempts to create celebrity for herself.

Here is some quick background. She's making the rounds on TV talk shows in response to her news worthy event surrounding her cross civil suit with the Miss USA Pageant. Just this past week TMZ helped put the kibosh on her hopes to sue the pageant after an old ex-boyfriend of hers gave TMZ some cell phone video of Carrie when she was 18. In it she was trying to please the ex-boyfriend by performing a 'solo' sex act. That video was shown to her mother and legal counsel at a meeting between all parties. The result, shock and dismay on her part and she decided then and there to settle the case.

All of that made news. You'd think if she was so shocked and upset she'd lay low. Instead Carrie has quickly booked herself for discussion. On Wednesday night she was on Larry King whom is about the most lame interviewer on the planet. He couldn't ask a tough question if his life depended on it. He skirted the issue of her touching herself and only asked what motivated her to settle. She then seemed to put on some bad acting and smugly told him repeatedly that he was being 'inappropriate'. The manner in which she delivered her defense seemed canned, as if she was waiting to say those words. It was all very phony on her part. Carrie spent time looking off camera to her handlers asking if it was time for her to walk off camera. She announced to Larry, "I'm about to walk off your show." Larry in turn explained he followed her instructions, changed the subject and left her plenty of room to save face. Instead she continued to tell him he was 'inappropriate'. It was unbearable to watch.

Ultimately she did stay on the show, but her antics really spell out what she is all about. At one time she had substance and reason for making a stand. While Perez Hilton may be out of line for calling her names simply because he wants to attack her, she's not helping her cause at all now by acting out on TV. Here is the video below. Decide for yourself as she idiotically holds up her book as if she is begging people to buy it.
