    The BioShock series has never been shy of offering political critique, and BioShock Infinite is biting closer to home than previous installments. The game themes itself around nationalism, racism, and what can happen when the love of America can go too far. Ironically, the folks at Stormfront missed the point, and set about proving it instead.

    Stormfront is well known online for being a hub of racist tomfoolery, and a crazy old thread (discovered by PC Gamer) claims the objective of Infinite is to "Kill Whitey." As you might expect, the self-martyrdom of the modern bigot is out in full force, as users show offence that a "Jew" like Ken Levine would pressgang white developers into making his anti-American game.

    Yeah ... it's pretty wacky stuff. It also goes to how just how normal racists think they are, that a game about extremism, to them, is about killing regular white people. No. Regular white people don't think the way you do, Mr. Racist. The game's not about us.

    You can read the whole thread for yourself if you want to be astonished at the victim complex of mostly white men (literally the most downtrodden people in the world), but we've also selected some juicy highlights for you to take a gander at. Be warned, of course, that some of it gets rather vile.



    "The game is going to thoroughly mock and denigrate pro-white and patriotic themes. Columbia is an expression of Aryan genius, progressiveness, and creativity turned into a racially and ideologically pure utopia, but of course it all goes wrong and is fundamentally flawed, thus the plot of the game unfolds. The fundamental flaw of course is any and all pro-white ideology." - Germanix.

    "I wish somebody would make a game about an ethnically pure jewish utopia whose inherent aggresion and hatred of all non-jews causes the inevitable extinction of all human beings, jews included. That would be more in line with reality." - Guts

    "That really sucks that they made they theme of the game to destroy what is left of America. Instead it should have been killing an all-powerful federal government and racial non-white groups that bring nothing but violence and want ot end America and turn it into Africa or Mexico. And they worked so hard on that game, such a disappointment with the story line being 100% anti American and anti White."- mrwigg1es

    "The anti nationalist sentiment is more than slightly obvious really. It looks like a jew trying to piddle on old small america." - Astragoth

    "Not surprised, the owner of Irrational Games (the company who made this) is Ken Levine, a Jew. He and his like minded clique come up with these ideas, then get their white programmers and 3D designers to make it beautiful and marketable. It is thanks to the white piss-ons that the game looks as beautiful, and has the fun playability that it does, it is thanks to Levine and the higherups that it has the propaganda that it does crowbarred into it.

    "99% of the people who actually make the games are white, all the designers, programmers, artist etc. But 99% of the company owners with the actual power are Jewish, such as Levine, Robert Kotick of Activision (the guys who make Grand Theft Auto) etc. Sadly the game industry is getting more and more taken over by the chosen. Anytime any small developer has any success, one of the big Jewish owned mega companies buys them out.

    "Since games are distributed and advertised through much of the same pipelines as Hollywood movies, Jews have a temendous advantage in the industry, since as everyone knows they already control Hollywood. This means competition can be choked out, and their own games bolstered to success. Really makes me sick to watch it happen."
    - Nexus 6

    "To all the ‘gamers’ so addicted to their games and going along with every new trend and hype with each new title that's released, incapable of objectively looking into them without even wanting to give up a bit of their ‘needs,’ I say: Enjew your beloved games, continue paying those vile Jews who're out to destroy our race."
    - End White Genocide Now

    "Wow --That game could hardly become more anti white. I am not surprised that the media brainwashed masses can not admit to seeing it. It is very much like trying to debate a liberal over gay rights. They will support the transvestites no matter one says simply because tv told them to."
    - Rictoven2

    "I can't believe it... yet at the same time... I can. I have a hard time believing those of you who say you cannot see what the big deal is. This is payback, pure and simple, it is a (barely) subliminal portrayal which depicts the patriots behind the tea party movement as the crazy, racist, and obsolete morons that the media has been trying to convince people they are. It is a multi-million dollar attempt to further convince a youth that the patriotism these individuals are longing to revert to is simply a buttered-up way for them to mask their true and evil xenophobic allegiances and intent.

    "It is to remind them that the principals and foundation of our nation are not to instill pride but to instead attribute shame to anyone whom would. It is to vilify our founding fathers and those who would honor them, and to leave upon the youth the impression that they will only evolve when they are free of the Constitution. Why bother to fight and expose yourselves, when you can subtly convince those who oppose you to destroy themselves without any conflict at all? I'm left completely in awe upon viewing this video. I am in awe yet again of just how intelligent and insidious the enemies of our people and our country can be when threatened and forced to retaliate. It's sickening. "On a lighter note, I know of at least one brilliant young game designer who is a regular here on SF and has a very different perspective to reveal to the youth than the one that has been forced upon them since birth. I can only hope and I do suspect that there are others like him as well, who both hold sacred the best interests of our people and keep a keen eye on the left."
    - vius

    "It's good that your informing us on this advertisement because I feel that it's a reminder that we must take action against these advertisements of hatred. I am going to complain to the company saying that I'm not going to buy their game because it is racist, I am also going to show this to other news networks saying that this advertisement is racist towards Whites, I am going to fight this commercial as much as I can and in every way that I can and make sure that this poodle doo prejudiced company gets the message and they know that this kind of advertising won't be tolerated. I suggest that you guys do the same."- YouSinYouWin

    "Duke Nukem is filth, John Carmack is married to an Asian, Red Faction is neither an FPS or pro-nationalist, and the first BioShocks were terrible."

    Troubled actor Edward Furlong exposed his 6-year-old son to cocaine and should NOT be allowed to be near the child without strict supervision ... this according to court docs filed by his ex-wife ... but Eddie claims it's all BS.

    Furlong -- who starred in "Terminator 2" and "American History X" -- appeared in court Friday to fight a court order which forbids him from being alone with his child.

    FYI -- Furlong's custody rights had been severely reduced back in November after his ex-wife filed docs claiming the kid tested positive for cocaine after spending time with Edward.
    Furlong has a storied history of substance abuse.

    But Friday in court, Furlong argued that his wife is a liar ... who will do or say whatever it takes to "alienate me further from my son and destroy my ability to work."

    In the end, the judge didn't buy what Edward was selling -- and refused to change the custody restrictions already in place. During the hearing, the judge also expressed concern about his poor physical appearance.


    Furlong has been on a downward spiral for years ... and was most recently seen wandering the streets of Skid Row in Downtown L.A.

    We reached out to Furlong for comment -- so far, no word back.

    When it comes to casting his films Peter Jackson has a fail-safe way of ensuring he gets the right actor for the right role; he steals them from his favourite British TV shows. “I was really pleased to be able to cast my all-time favourite Doctor Who, Sylvester McCoy, in the role of the wizard,” the director has admitted, adding, “I’m a huge Doctor Who fan.”

    And it seems that isn’t where his love of British broadcasting ends. Aidan Turner, best known for playing vampire Mitchell in Being Human, got a call from Jackson because he “dug” the show. Looking at the rest of the cast, it seems Jackson might also be a fan of Sherlock, Spooks and Cold Feet…

    So, Aidan, how did you land the part of Kili the dwarf?

    Peter requested a meeting. A couple of months later I got a call out of the blue asking if I wanted to spend a year and a half in Middle-earth? There was a fair bit of screaming on my balcony at half-eight in the morning in Cardiff: “Yes! Yes! Oh yes!”

    Aidan TurnerHow did it compare to working on the set of Being Human?

    I’ve never been on any set like it before and yet it was exactly what I expected: absolutely gigantic. You could have skydived from the top of the sound studios. And I would happily have lived in my Winnebago. When you walk onto a Peter Jackson set, you can see straightaway that money isn’t an issue.

    The slightest thing could be wrong with the look of something – Peter might not take to a particular prosthetic or a weapon and filming stops for a fortnight while it’s revamped and re-approved. It’s got to be perfect for Peter or else it just doesn’t go ahead. There’s no compromise. That’s something I’ve never really experienced before. On every other job I’ve done, from fringe plays to TV shows, budget was always an issue: what can we afford and what can we afford not to have? That question was never asked with Peter, which was kind of cool.

    You haven't been uglified like your fellow dwarves. Why not?

    Because I’m just too damn pretty! No, seriously, I did wear prosthetics in the early days but it made me look too old. So I got away with a sliver of fake nose and a mere 90 minutes in hair and make-up, whereas the other dwarves were coming in at three hours.

    What happened in dwarf boot camp?

    There were movement classes to teach us how to walk like a dwarf, and a lot of weight-training to bulk up. Historically, dwarves are miners and live underground, so they have a low centre of gravity and are very heavy in the legs. Peter used a lot of different tricks to shrink us – some really hi-tech CGI stuff, or in other scenes we were simply walking in ditches beside Gandalf, or closer to the foreground of the camera.

    Aidan TurnerDoes Kili get involved in any romance?

    Not in the first movie. There’s a possibility that Kili might get his end away in the second, but I can’t say anything or I’ll get in trouble – Peter’s people will kick my ass from the other side of the world.

    Were there any thrills off set?

    On a beautiful clear Sunday morning, myself and James Nesbitt jumped out of a plane together at 18,000 feet. That probably wasn’t in our contracts but we weren’t going to tell anybody!

    What was your personal highlight?

    Wrapping the last scene: we were at the top of this hill and everyone just looked at each other and said, “That’s it?”

     Sometimes you wonder whether you’ll ever see the end because there’s so much to cover, and things went wrong all the time, as they do on any film set. Then you get to the end and you wish it could all just start again. The movie is about a quest for so many things and it felt like we had gone through that journey as well – like we’d really conquered something. 

    Cranberry sauce.

    Still haven't seen it. Oops.

    Samaire Armstrong is a mommy!

    The Mentalist actress, 32, gave birth to her first child, son Calin, a source confirms to Us Weekly.

    The new mom shared the exciting news on Facebook Sunday, Dec. 16, writing, "Thank you so much for all the love! Will post pictures after a little rest. We're all doing wonderfully. It was an amazing experience and we couldn't be more thrilled with our new arrival. xoxo!"

    Armstrong, who confirmed her pregnancy on Twitter in October, had been counting down the days until her baby boy arrived on Facebook.

    "Ok baby. We're ready when you are," she wrote Friday. "Eight day count down . . . 8 days?!"

    She shared a photo of her bare baby bump on Twitter in November with headphones around her belly. She captioned the shot, "Maybe he'll be a lawyer."

    Y'all remember this?


    In Empire's recent video interviews with the cast of The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey, Peter Jackson revealed a couple of interesting titbits about his intentionally mysterious cameo in the film.


    If you haven't seen it already, it's probably best if you don't know – but if you have seen the first Hobbit movie already, here's where he was hiding: in Erebor, dressed up as a dwarf, high-tailing it away from Smaug as the wicked wyrm blasted his particular brand of firey halitosis all upside The Lonely Mountain.

    But as most dwarves in the film are bearded, helmeted and armoured, it's very difficult to make him out without knowing where he'll be in advance.

    The question is then why he chose that role – why did Peter "Carrot Chomper" Jackson hide himself away from the limelight this time around?

    "I didn't have a great deal of choice," he explains. "There weren't any human characters in this film, and there weren't any hobbit roles I could play... and I'm not an elf."

    Teen Mom 2 star Kailyn Lowry tweeted photos last night of the latest addition to her skin art collection — an intricate design incorporating roses, an anchor, a skull and a stopwatch that nearly covers all of the underside of her left arm.

    An anchor - For all those who have kept me grounded through my journey with MTV
    Pocket watch - Stopped at 10:05, the day I met Javi.
    The skull - For my past, skeletons in my closet.

    She also tweeted that she was “halfway” done and that “the second session will be the other side of my arm.”

    The pictures have spawned the inevitable flurry of negative comments, to which Kailyn responds by tweeting,“I love when people think I want/need their approval to do something.”

    Not every pioneer is a swashbuckler. Dido Armstrong, the hit-making British singer-songwriter, has a gentle voice that recalls backyard birdsong and a Jane Austen-like grasp of everyday heartache and perseverance. She helped change pop, however, when she agreed to let the rapper Eminem sample her 1999 song "Thank You" in what became his monster hit "Stan." Since then, calm feminine voices paired with florid male rappers' declamations have become a permanent fixture on the Top 40.

    She has been working in the studio with a lot of great producers like: Rollo Armstrong and Sister Bliss (Faithless members), Lester Mendez (Shakira, Nelly Furtado), A. R. Rahman, Rick Nowels (Lana Del Rey, Colbie Caillat), Greg Kurstin (Marina & the Diamonds, Ke$ha, Rita Ora) and Jeff Bhasker (Beyoncé, Bruno Mars, Taylor Swift).

    The album is called “Girl Who Got Away“, the singer confirmed the title on her Twitter page. The album hit stores on March 5, 2013 via Sony Music and the first single entitled “No Freedom” is scheduled for release on iTunes on January 2013.

    On December 15, the singer unveiled the official tracklist:

    “No Freedom”
    “Grl Who Got Away”
    “Let Us Move On” (feat. Kendrick Lamar)
    “Blackbird”
    “End of Night”
    “Sitting on the Roof of the World”
    “Love to Blame”
    “Go Dreaming”
    “Happy New Year”
    “Loveless Heart”
    “Day Before We Went to War”

    Deluxe Version
    “Let Us Move On” (feat. Kendrick Lamar) [Jeff Bhasker Version]
    “All I See” (feat. Pete Miser)
    “Just Say Yes”
    “Let’s Run Away”
    “Everything to Lose” (Armin van Buuren Remix)
    “Lost”
    “No Freedom” (Benny Benassi Remix) [Bonus Track]


    Leading off with this vigorous track featuring current rap favorite, Kendrick Lamar, who like Eminem is a member of Dr. Dre's Aftermath label. Produced by Dido and her brother Rollo Armstrong with Jeff Bhasker, "Let Us Move On" has the fractured gloss of a Kanye West track and a message of realistic hope that fits with Dido's previous music. Lamar revs the song's engine with a rhyme that starts out quietly and rises like a temperature. "Got these burdens under my wings, but I'm still free," he admits, before taking his final flight. Then Dido comes back to help us ride out the journey.





    Don’t wrap it up and go,
    Or hide it behind the sun
    Just give it to me as it is,
    And let it stand
    Don’t fly it like a kite, between the clouds
    It needs no excuse, just bring it down

    Let us that are in pain look upon it
    In all its glory
    Let us move on
    Let us move on
    This is short and it will pass
    Let us move on
    Let us move on
    For this is short, and it will pass

    Every voice that is lifted, river and some pain
    Show us now, and let love not be chained
    We should feel what we can stop let us be alive
    Show enough, and we’ve done, now we can

    Let us that are frozen get to see
    In all its glory
    Let us move on
    Let us move on
    For this is short and it will pass
    Let us move on
    Let us move on
    For this is short, and it will pass

    And let all that is lost be forgotten, and it will pass
    So let all that is lost be forgotten
    Let us move on

    Kendrick Lamar:
    Like the waters and the open sea
    With tribulation come over you say yes hopefully
    And yesterday you could probably say there’s no hope for me
    But today I’m overly dedicated
    I’m posting via testimony for broken hearts in the city
    You’re either crash-landing or planning on flying with me
    Misery love standing behind his company,
    Well, vividly I could see that your feelings would like to dwell
    On our past encounters, reaching over the counter
    Told me that it’s appealing to ṗop a pill less or down now
    I heard emotions burn deep,
    I heard when you fall out of love, the drop is deep
    I heard when you see a thug that’s what you try to be
    Git these burdens under my wings but I’m still free
    Cause I can make the decision to let it all go away
    Before I ever run astray, I looked you in the eye and say

    Let us move on
    Let us move on
    For this is short and it will pass
    Let us move on
    Let us move on
    For this is short, and it will pass

    Let us move on
    Let us move on
    For this is short and it will pass
    Let us move on
    Let us move on
    For this is short, and in the past
    And in the past

    Blink 182 has the number one album on itunes, but revealed they barely spoke when recording 'Neigberhoods' last year.

    Speaking to Billboard, guitarist/frontman Tom DeLonge said the bands reformation, after a five-year hiatus, and the recording of their 2011 sixth studio album was anything but smooth.
    He explained: "We weren't even in the same room. We were barely talking; we were in different studios. No one really commented on each other's parts, no one pressed anyone's buttons. Everyone was on eggshells."

    Now back with a new EP, titled 'Dogs Eating Dogs', which is due for release on December 18, things are looking a lot more positive for the pop-punk trio despite splitting from their record label Interscope. "We're connecting and laughing and making jokes and making fun of each other," says DeLonge. "There was no laughing on 'Neighbourhoods'."

    Speaking about the split from a major label, he added: "It was totally us. We're ready to move on. At the same time, what (Interscope does) best and what they know how to do at this moment is more like hip-hop and R&B and pop music. There are a lot of labels that are doing really well with rock bands and they're just not one of them. I just don't think the partnership made any sense."

    The pop punk trio will be putting out their new EP in three different packages, including the Santa's Lap package, which includes a t-shirt, limited edition poster, wrapping paper and a Christmas card, the Nice package, which includes a hoodie, wrapping paper and card and the Naughty package, which includes a shirt and card.
    Also available for $3.99 on itunes


    so happy for them, love the ep!

    Miley Cyrus gave her all on stage at the VH1 Divas when she performed Rebel Yell on Sunday night. While the entertainer always gets feedback on every performance from fans, one artist she was glad to hear from was Billy Idol. Apparently Idol watched the performance and was so impressed he wanted to let Miley Cyrus know he approved.

    “I enjoyed seeing Miley Cyrus having fun rockin' out with Rebel Yell last night on vh1divas! 'Take that bitches'!” tweeted Billy Idol from his official Twitter account on Monday. The entertainer got the attention of his fans and Miley Cyrus' fans as giving the song gave his blessing was a big deal as most older rockers shy away from addressing new versions of a song.


    While Miley Cyrus’ performance on VH1 Divas was one of the most discussed segments on the show, she did a great job. Giving fans her version of punk rocker fashion and making the song an emotional journey, many fans felt a special connection to the performance. Obviously Billy Idol did too.

    MMA fighter Ray Elbe -- who competed on "Ultimate Fighter 9" -- had to be rushed to a hospital in Malaysia earlier this month and required 10 stitches ... after he BROKE HIS PENIS during sex.

    Elbe told the whole story -- in painfully graphic detail -- on an MMA website ... explaining how he was having sex with his GF, who was "on top" ... when she bounced a little too high, and crunched Ray's erect penis.

    According to Ray, his penis "fractured" ... and "blood was everywhere." Ray says he immediately passed out from the pain.


    Ray says he was rushed to a nearby hospital ... and underwent emergency surgery to close the wound and repair a "slight tear" in his urinary tube.

    Elbe says the pain was so severe after the surgery, his johnson was "throbbing with each heart beat."

    Elbe says he expects to make a full recovery -- and was ordered to take "anti-erection pills" for two weeks.

    The fighter says he learned a hard lesson from the experience -- and will never let his GF be "on top" ever again.

    Elbe also explained, "In an attempt to make it up to me ... [my GF] has promised me a threesome of my choice when we get to the Philippines ... which usually has some solid talent."

  • 12/18/12--04:03: 1600 Penn: This is Comedy?
  • 1600


    The new White House comedy 1600 Penn already has critical admirers, and NBC seems bullish on it; the network is running a special “preview” of the pilot tonight (op note: last night) in advance of the show’s official January premiere. “It’s a dubious idea to give a ‘sneak preview’ of any series  nearly a month in advance, but NBC might be doing the right thing with its new comedy 1600 Penn,” raved The Hollywood Reporter’s Tim Goodman, a tough critic who doesn’t usually go in for this kind of show. “That’s because no matter when it airs, the pilot will be funny. And the second episode funnier still. And the third as well.”

    “Hmmm,” sez I. Humor is subjective, your mileage may vary, yada yada, but the first three episodes that NBC sent to critics did nothing for me. Zip. Nada. Ladies and gentlemen, I didn’t laugh once. And as anybody who’s ever read me knows, when it comes to dumb humor, I’m a cheap date.

    1600 Penn is a sitcom from the minds of Jason Winer (Modern Family), ex–White House speechwriter Jon Lovett, and The Book of Mormon’s Josh Gad, who also stars as the president’s screwup son, Skip. He is the sort of character that the late Chris Farley used to play: an overgrown boy; bearish, manic, socially and physically inept, but good at heart. The pilot kicks off with Skip, now in his seventh year of college, pranking a frat house by shooting off fireworks on its lawn. One of the shells goes through a window and sets the place on fire, and Secret Service agents swoop in and stuff Josh in a limo to protect him.

    The scene is amusing in the abstract, but it didn’t play for me because — as is the case elsewhere in 1600 Penn — it gives a potentially rich comic scenario the bum’s rush. Presumably the Secret Service has been following this doofus around for years cleaning up his messes. I immediately started imagining a series from their point of view, which appears (from where we sit, anyway) to be entirely neutral: observe and protect, don’t pass judgment no matter how badly you want to. There were probably other equally fascinating ways the writers could have spun it, but they went the obvious route: mild reversal of expectations as pre-credits sting. The fireworks bit would have fit right into a C+ Hollywood comedy starring a second-tier Saturday Night Live cast member released in 1995.

    That describes nearly all of 1600 Penn, alas. Gad’s character moves back into the White House so that his family can keep an eye on him, and he immediately proceeds to make trouble for his dad, President Dale Gilchrest (Bill Pullman, here playing a veteran of the first Gulf War, as he also did in Independence Day), a standard-issue sputtering, beleaguered authority figure. We also meet the president’s second wife and first lady, Emily Nash Gilchrest (Jenna Elfman), who doesn’t like being called a “trophy wife” but doesn’t make a terribly persuasive case otherwise. Gilchrest also has a teenage daughter Becca (Martha MacIsaac), whose entire character is defined by the fact that she’s pregnant. An offhand scene explains that it happened at a party; I’d have loved to have actually seen the party and the Secret Service loitering at the margins, practicing a nonintervention policy but gnashing their teeth over the girl’s poor judgment. Whatever happened to the credo expressed in the Clint Eastwood movie In the Line of Fire: that the Secret Service agent’s job is to protect the target’s reputation as well as his or her safety?

    I keep getting hung up on this Secret Service thing, and I guess that’s unfair to the show and a little weird, maybe; but what’s onscreen is so tepid and unimaginative that it practically compelled my mind to wander. The supposedly madcap shenanigans — Skip good-naturedly and improbably helping to negotiate a trade agreement; Becca hallucinating that every other word out of her stepmother’s mouth has something to do with pregnancy and lady parts — aren’t funny enough to compensate for not being daring enough, if you know what I mean. If you don’t, check out Trey Parker and Matt Stone’s short-lived but agreeably cuckoo That’s My Bush!, which pushed the same concept (an utterly unremarkable domestic sitcom that just happens to be set in the White House) so far that it sometimes resembled the Natural Born Killers sitcom parody starring Rodney Dangerfield. HBO’s current Veep works in the same vein; as I wrote in a Vulture review, when you watch it, “you may feel as if you’ve stumbled into a deleted dream sequence from I Love Lucy.” On the other end of the White House–themed pop-culture spectrum, you have earnest, quasi-realistic stuff like The West Wing and The American President, and such D.C.-based potboilers as Scandal and Homeland, which at times suggest melodramas plotted like slapstick sitcoms. The tension between substance and style makes all of these works worth seeing and having an opinion on, even if you ultimately decide you don’t like them.

    In comparison, 1600 Penn is just a half-hour of your life you’ll never get back; Gad’s Chris Farley–Jonah Hill scratchy-voiced whine and man-boy cavorting dominate the series to the point where nearly every other character seems to be reacting to his presence even if they’re not in the same room, or the same state. This is lowest-common-denominator stuff; I’d say it seemed to be kissing the ass of its star if Gad were actually a star, which he isn’t yet. Pullman is reduced to making a series of constipated faces, Elfman’s bubbly weirdness has been neutered with a dose of network sitcom middle-aged female neuroses, and the rest of the characters are barely interesting enough to rate a mention, although Andre Holland’s press secretary, Marshall Malloy, sneaks in a couple of decent jaw-on-floor reactions to Gad’s clowning. The show is “clever” in a way that makes me mourn how far standards of cleverness have fallen. If it’s the best new comedy that NBC has in the pipeline, the network is in more trouble than anyone knew.

    Then again, I thought The Neighbors was pretty funny, so go ahead, tune in, knock yourself out.

    So that's how she does it! Megan Fox shows off her stunning post-baby figure... after hiring a night nurse so she can sleep

    article-2249799-168FB69A000005DC-645_634x766

    It seems Jay Leno got his Christmas cracker early this year.
    For the funnyman could not stop staring at Megan Fox when she wore a stunning blue dress on The Tonight Show.
    The chat show king certainly seemed to be enjoying himself as he had a chinwag with the Transformers star.
    Perhaps he was just enjoying the hilarious tales of new motherhood from his irrepressible guest.
    article-0-168FB692000005DC-629_634x803
    However the funnyman also surely enjoying the view after the canny strumpet twinned a Roland Mouret dress with Christian Louboutin shoes.
    Making her figure all the more impressive is the fact she only gave birth two months ago.
    The 26-year-old also revealed how much she is enjoying being a mother for the first time to her son Noel, whose father is her husband Brian Austin Green.
    She said: 'I love it. It’s my favourite thing that I’ve ever done so far, so I’m happy with it.'
    However the honest star has admitted looking after a baby is not as easy as she expected.
    She is dedicated to put in as much work looking after the baby as possible, and amazingly even tried looking after the baby without any help initially.
    However this was not working for her and husband Brian Austin Green, so they have now hired a night nurse for two nights a week.
    She said: 'Having an infant is difficult. It's a lot of work and I didn't hire any help because I overestimated my own abilities.
    'I had no idea how difficult babies could be, so Brian and I were exhausted.
    'I said to Brian, "we have to get a night nurse or we're going to get a divorce because someone's got to sleep in this house or we're going to kill each other."'

    Lol @ the DailyFail for thinking it was amazing she tried to look after the baby without a nanny, but ngl, if I had money I would get a nanny as well.

    article-2249776-168F88FE000005DC-498_634x899

    A year after Zooey Deschanel filed for divorce from Ben Gibbard, the pair's marriage is officially over.
    The New Girl star, 32, and Death Cab for Cutie crooner, 36, were divorced on Dec. 12, according to court documents filed in Los Angeles Superior Court.
    According to the papers, "Unhappy and irreconcilable differences have arisen between the parties, which have caused the irremediable breakdown of their marriage. There is no possibility that counseling … or mediation could save the marriage."
    Neither Deschanel nor Gibbard have spoken at length about the split – which was made official in Oct. 2011 – but shortly after the divorce filing, the actress told PEOPLE, "We're friendly. It's all fine."
    Married in Sept.2009, Gibbard has said of his former wife, "I was just awestruck that she was even talking to me. I'd seen her movies and obviously I thought she was very beautiful."

    Ke$ha's 'Die Young' PLUMMETS from Charts After Newtown Massacre




    Ke$ha's new hit "Die Young" has fallen on deaf ears ... after radio stations around the country yanked the song from their rotation after the Newtown tragedy ... TMZ has learned.

    "Die Young" clocked in at #3 on the radio playlists on Friday (the day of the shooting) ... reaching 167 million listeners nationwide, this according to Mediabase, a company that tracks radio airplay.

    By Saturday, the day after the shooting ... airplay dropped by 3 million listeners ... a sign that stations were slowly pulling the song off the air.

    By Monday ... "Die Young" took a huge hit on the radio ... dropping down to 148 million listeners ... a 19 million drop from what had been a pretty steady rotation before the shooting.


    One music expert tells us ... a drop of this magnitude is extremely rare. The last time a song plummeted this quickly is when the Dixie Chicks were banned from country radio ... after insulting President Bush.

    We reached out to Ke$ha for comment -- so far , no word back.
