Weekend chart from Box Office Mojo
Tomatometer from Rotten Tomatoes
How was your weekend/New Year's Eve/New Year's Day, ONTD? Are you looking forward to any movies coming out this year?
X Factor 2012 winner James Arthur is set to kick off work on his debut album this week. The singer-songwriter previously said he wanted to put out his record as soon as possible, rather than waiting a year like past winners.
James secured the first number one of 2013 this week as his winner’s track Impossible returned to number one for the second time in two weeks on Sunday night’s latest Top 40 chart. The track has sold over 900,000 copies so far, making it the fourth biggest selling X Factor debut to date, ahead of even Leona Lewis. And with the song still holding strong in the charts, we wouldn’t be surprised if it soon overtakes the remaining three songs too.
According to The Sun, James is set to get working with British producer Fraser T Smith on his debut album, with the music mastermind having previously worked with the likes of Adele and Leona Lewis (and Dappy from N-Dubz).
Jessica Simpson and Jennifer Hudson have a lot in common, specifically when it comes to balancing their careers with motherhood.
Now Simpson, 32, and Hudson, 31, have one more similarity to add to the list – they've both shed serious pounds thanks to Weight Watchers.
The spokeswomen for the weight loss company met when they shot their first joint advertisement – which will be available on PEOPLE.com on Wednesday – and discussed their lifelong struggles with their weight and body image.
Hudson says she figured she was "just born that way," while Simpson added that she was "always on some new life-stopping diet."
Simpson – who lost over 50 lbs. on the program – recently announced her pregnancy on Twitter.
But the mother to 7-month-old Maxwell Drew, "will not be following the [weight loss] program during the pregnancy while her weight and well-being are monitored by her obstetrician," Weight Watchers said in a statement.
This morning, CNN mentioned that even though Lady Gaga is one of the year's most anticipated tours, ticket sales aren't as good as expected. To further demonstrate this, StubHub, the official partner site of Ticketmaster, began showing tickets for the Born This Way Ball tour as cheap as $23 this morning, even though regular tickets on Ticketmaster sell at $60 to $200.
At her opening U.S. show in Tacoma on January 14, hundreds of tickets remain through Ticketmaster. However, there are several tickets also available at StubHub for tickets at less than face value. In San Jose, Ticketmaster lists seats as all sold out except for the most expensive tickets at $175. However, on StubHub, there are hundreds of tickets still for sale and some of those tickets are selling at below face value.
This seems to be a pattern for ticket sales throughout the Born This Way Ball tour. In Los Angeles, for example, you can buy tickets for as cheap as $23 on StubHub. Besides tickets being easily available on Ticketmaster, nearly 2,000 tickets are available for each show at StubHub. There are other secondary ticket sites that are selling tickets as well. Either there will be a lot of empty seats, or many will be secretly "given away" to avoid embarrassment.
However, Ticketmaster tells us that in general, ticket sales for Lady Gaga's tour are good and that she is one of the few artists who can play back-to-back dates at the same venue. Even though there have been several reports of downsized venues and empty seats throughout the world, the Born This Way Ball tour is one of the top five grossing tours of 2012.
The Disney Channel is being criticized for featuring a teen with two moms in the network's Make Your Mark ad campaign.
The campaign, which aims to inspire kids to make a difference, is currently featuring 14-year-old Ben, an aspiring filmmaker with two moms. Ben created a film against teen bullying.
“I hope to remind kids who are bullied that they do have power,” Ben says in the 2-minute ad.“They need to show courage, and if they need help, they should tell an adult.”
In a post at the conservative site Newsbusters.org, which is part of Brent Bozell's Media Research Center (MRC), Tim Graham lamented the inclusion of a gay family in the campaign.
“The Disney Channel has disgusted gay activists for 'failing' to have 'out gay characters' on its programming for children,” Graham said, referring to an AfterElton.com post on the campaign. “But right now, the gays are thrilled by the channel's ad campaign Make Your Mark for featuring a 14-year-old named Ben, an aspiring filmmaker who made a film against bullying and 'happens to have two moms.'”
In a Mediaite.com post, Andrew Kirell busted back: “Christian conservatives have every right to lament what is portrayed in popular culture – consumer complaints and preferences are what drive the market for entertainment – but instead of perpetually being outraged by every single instance of homosexuality being 'glorified' (i.e., not treated like a defective product, as they see it), here's an easier solution for the anti-gay warriors: Turn off the channel, block your kids from watching Disney (it's called modern technology), and live your life the way you choose while letting others do the same. Easy as pie.”

Former The X Factor hopeful Rylan Clark could be about to get a second bite of the celebrity cherry.
Never watched it but if he's on it I'm DEFINITELY going to start. SO EXCITED FOR HIM
Fantasia Barrino caused a firestorm of controversy when she posted a rant referencing gay marriage on her Instagram account. Some fans thought it sounded very anti-gay but the American Idol alum insists she's anything but.
“I Rise ABOVE IT ALL!!! THE WORLD IS GONE MAD. KIDS, THE GOVERMENT, THE church House… Everybody Trying!!!!!!!,” the singer wrote. “It’s a lot that going on that the Bible speaks about we should Not be doing. Weed legal in some places, Gay Marriage Legal BUT YET IM JUDGED!!! Im not doing Nothing for you… My Life!!!!”
Fantasia's rant was a reference to the criticism she's had aimed at her because she began her affair with her baby daddy Antwaun Cook when he was still married. The two became parents just over a year ago.
The angry response brought about a quick statement from Fantasia's management saying she was a strong supporter of "the LGBT community," and Fantasia herself got back into the fray, posting, "I, Fantasia Monique Barrino, don’t judge anyone because I don’t want to be judged. The gay community is one of my largest supporters. I support the gay community as the support me. Bloggers please stop misrepresenting the facts.”
While Harry Styles and Taylor Swift were busy kissing to the new year in Times Square, Harry's One Direction bandmates were partying it up.
Liam Payne and Niall Horan celebrated at a party thrown by 1D bandmate Louis Tomlinson,
while Zayn Malik and girlfriend Perrie Edwards were reportedly in Dubai together.
The guys shared their new year's tweets--check out what Liam, Niall, Zayn and Louis said (nothing from Harry yet!)...
Niall: "Happy New Year guys! Thanks for 2012! 2013 let's gooo"
Louis: "Happy new year everyone . Thank you for making the last year so special!"
"Also thank to everyone who came to the party last night was such a good way to spend New Year's Eve!"
Liam: "Wowww im looking forward to 2013!Thank you for all your support in 2012,its been a year i will never forget! Love you all! Happy new yearrrr"
Zayn: "Just want to say to you all thank you for an absolutely amazing 2012. You guys have made the last few years incredible"
"We wouldn't be where we are now without you all! So Happy 2013! Love you all! :) x"
Star of 'Keeping Up With the Kardashians' says she hasn't suffered morning sickness, but has endured a little pain
She doesn’t have morning sickness, but Kim Kardashian says it's a stretch to call her pregnancy pleasant.
“I wouldn't say that it's been easy," the reality TV star told “Entertainment Tonight” at a New Year's Eve party in Las Vegas Monday night.
“When people say pregnancy is fun and they love it, I would have to disagree," she said. "It's not as easy as people think. It is, you know, a little painful. There's a lot of growing pains."
Rapper Kanye West’s baby mama said she managed to get through her first 12 weeks without any nausea or vomiting, so she's hopeful things will get even better.
"I think from this stage on it does become easier and funner," she told “ET” on the red carpet for the Mirage resort's 1 Oak nightclub. "I heard it's all worth it, so I'm looking forward to that, and I'm excited."
Asked if she was tired as others counted down to midnight, the buxom beauty said she takes "lots of naps" to compensate for her whirlwind schedule.
In a separate interview with Us magazine, she revealed she wants to learn her baby’s gender before giving birth.
"Of course I want to know. I can't find out yet, but I do want to know," she revealed at the Sin City shindig.
"It's definitely an adjustment learning about your body and stuff like that," she told Us.
Kardashian, 32, hit the 1 Oak party just a day after West, 35, dropped the baby bombshell during a performance in Atlantic City.
The happy couple raced from New Jersey to Los Angeles early Monday and then high-tailed it to Vegas for Kardashian's long-scheduled paid appearance.
Clad in a see-through black mesh dress with strategically placed appliqués, Kardashian mugged for the cameras as she cuddled and kissed her beaming beau.
The spotlight soakfest was in line with Kardashian's highly public persona and a stark contrast to the report she and West plan to keep their infant far away from any TV cameras and out of the family biz.
According to TMZ.com, the parents-to-be have decided their newborn will not appear in a "Kim Gives Birth" special or on any reality shows for that matter.
They want to "ensure real privacy" for the celebrity spawn, an unidentified source told TMZ.
Just how private may be up for debate: E!, the home of “Keeping Up With the Kardashians," is already making plans.
“Like so many Kardashian fans, we love it when this close-knit family gets even bigger. We look forward to sharing the joy as they prepare for more diapers, more bottles and without a doubt, more fabulous baby wear," E! President Suzanne Kolb told The Hollywood Reporter in a statement.
In the meantime, Kim’s “momager,” Kris Jenner, has solicited offers from national celebrity magazines for an exclusive cover story on her daughter’s pregnancy, a well-placed source told the Daily News.

On track to make her debut in the coming months, Streeter is no stranger to the music business. In the past, she has penned a number of tracks for Brandy, Kelly Rowland, Alicia Keys, Estelle and more. She has also had the pleasure of working very closely with Chris Brown during his career. Now it's her turn in the spotlight. Streeter already released her first single, "I Like It," and says a debut album is on the way.
SEVYN STREETER: Sevyn Streeter is a singer. A performer. A writer. Just a lover of music. I love music. I'm obsessed with it.
ESSENCE.com: You've worked very closely with Chris Brown over the years. What's the best lesson he's taught you as an artist?
STREETER: He definitely taught me to take my time and to not stress in the studio. I'm a little bit obsessive and I'll do a take 20 times. He doesn't really let me do that and it's helped me so much. Even video wise—he was on the set of my video and was giving me pointers on how to come across through the camera. Little things here and there. No matter what arena we're in, he always has some type of advice for me.
STREETER: I am! It's coming along really well. I've been in with a couple producers—I have more to go in with. So far so great.
ESSENCE.com: What do you expect the vibe to be like?
STREETER: It's going to be very true to me. I'm going to try to be as honest as possible with the records. I was the typical little Black girl—I grew up singing in church. The urban and R&B will definitely be there. That's who I am. That's the type of music I grew up listening to. There's going to be bits and pieces of pop and alternative in there too. I have to be true to all of myself. [But] the core of it is going to be urban and R&B.
ESSENCE.com: Are you writing the songs on the album too?
STREETER: I'm doing a lot of writing. I'm not really trying to write all of the records myself. I'm so not interested in that. I love writing with other writers. We sit in the room and we throw ideas back and forth and that creative process is so much fun to me.
ESSENCE.com: What do you want most out of your career?
STREETER: When I think about the dreams and ideas I had when I was younger, as singer you envision yourself on a stage touring the world. That's how I view it. I love shows and I love performing. I can't wait for the day when I can tour the world and have crazy costume changes and crazy sets and a really great band. That's all I really want.
ESSENCE.com: Where do you get most of your inspiration?
STREETER: It's weird. I like going to the movies by myself. Like just sitting in the back, catching a really good movie. It may not be a movie that your friends want to go see with you. But I love watching movies. I get inspired by them a lot. They don't have a box. Also my everyday conversations with people inspire me. Everybody is different. Everyone has a different take on life, love and relationships. There are a million ways you can sell that story.
nagl @ chris brown but i like her inspiration response and this single
TORONTO - When actress Meg Tilly came out of retirement last year to helm Global's period drama "Bomb Girls" it was meant to be a short-term gig.
She signed on to the miniseries believing the project would wrap after six episodes and didn't anticipate what ended up happening: Canadians watched. Global noticed. The network ordered 12 more episodes.
Of course, it was great news for the cast and crew, says Tilly, but she admits to initially feeling more dread than joy when it became increasingly apparent she'd be spending more time in front of the camera.
"I'd come out of retirement — I mean, I hadn't acted for 18 years — I'd done a play and all of a sudden I'm doing this thing and you're supposed to memorize all this stuff and you're block shooting and I'm like, 'I'm a middle-aged woman, what the heck?'" the 52-year-old Tilly chuckled during a recent break from shooting.
"I was thinking: 'How am I going to do it? How am I going to memorize (everything)?' And then they're like, 'Well, yes, you know, six (more episodes), probably. Or eight. Sometimes they do 12.' And then somebody came in one day and said (lowering her voice to adopt an ominous tone): 'Some series go 18 shows.' And I said: 'I would kill myself.'"
Joking aside, Tilly did hope the show would continue, if only so she could reunite with the affable cast and crew who had put so much work into the Toronto-shot series, about a group of women who work at a Canadian munitions factory during the Second World War.
"And the scripts this year are kicking butt. They are beautiful," says Tilly, who was nominated for a best supporting actress Oscar for her work in 1985's "Agnes of God."
"We should be getting the scripts for (episodes) 11 and 12 and it's like Christmas morning — you're waiting (to see) what you're going to unwrap."
When things left off at the end of the miniseries, Tilly's character Lorna had just found out she was pregnant after sleeping with her hunky co-worker Marco.
The action picks up three months later, with Lorna trying to convince herself the baby could be her husband's. But the chances are slim, says Tilly, who notes the once-confident Lorna is now full of anguish and doubt.
"Last year shifted something in everybody and obviously for Lorna as well and she's got some really important decisions to make and the options are limited. You aren't allowed to work in the bomb factory if you're pregnant and it's how she supports her family," Tilly says.
Meanwhile, Gladys is back in the factory after having been fired and her fiance has signed up with the U.S. troops and is headed off to war.
"She's still trying to establish herself as an independent human being that's not defined by her social circumstances and her family and those kind of constraints that she's grown up with," says actress Jodi Balfour, who plays the wealthy former socialite.
"And (she's grappling with) her relationship with James who's now at officer's training about to leave for war, and what that means and what part did she play in that and how responsible is she for sending him to the war."
The saga of Kate and Betty continues too, promises Ali Liebert, whose steely Betty was left heartbroken when Kate rejects her romantic advances and returns to her abusive father.
But just because Kate's back doesn't mean the story picks up smoothly where things left off, adds co-star Charlotte Hegele, who plays the insecure bomb girl with a stellar singing voice.
Regardless, Liebert says fans would be happy to know that her character never gave up on Kate.
"They have such an amazing friendship and bond," says Liebert. "Having Kate back is the best thing in the world for Betty."
"Bomb Girls" returns Wednesday to Global.
New episodes begin tomorrow! Can't wait to have Antonio Cupo's face back on my TV screen. <3
No matter what vulgar things Kathy Griffin does on CNN's live New Year's Eve broadcasts, the folks at the supposedly most trusted name in news continue to invite her back.
On Monday night's program, after first telling co-host Anderson Cooper "I'm going to tickle your sack," she shortly after midnight actually kissed his crotch (video follows with transcribed highlights and commentary):
Roughly eleven minutes into the program which began at 10 PM, Cooper commented about how on Twitter folks were suggesting that there should be a game that whenever he giggles nervously during the show, contestants have to take a drink.
Then, completely out of the blue, Griffin said, “I'm going to tickle your sack. You can say sack. That's not bad.”
An obviously nervous Cooper responded, “I don't know what you're talking about. I have no sack of gifts here.”
Griffin then suggested the camera pan lower so the audience can see her “naughty gestures.”
When Cooper continued to try and clean it up by again referring to a sack of Christmas presents, Griffin asked, “You’re calling your privates your Christmas presents?”
When Cooper said, “No,” Griffin replied, “That’s typical hot guy. ‘Let’s open up the Christmas presents.’”
But Griffin wasn’t finished with her lewd behavior.
Shortly after midnight, Cooper showed viewers how they celebrate New Year’s Eve in Eastport, Maine.
National correspondent Gary Tuchman reported live that there’s a custom in the town to kiss a statue of an eight-foot sardine that they drop from the museum at the stroke of midnight. People were then shown kissing the sardine.
As Tuchman finished his report, Griffin in the left split-screen bent down and kissed Cooper's crotch.
As she continued to try to kiss it, Cooper asked her, “Did you drop something?”
“No, I was kissing your sardine,” Griffin replied.
“Thank you. I got it,” giggled Cooper.
“I can do it again,” Griffin said kneeling. “I can do this all night long."
“No, sweetie,” said Cooper lifting her back on her feet.
“I'm going on Letterman in two nights, and he wants a moment,” argued Griffin as she went down again.
“I'm going down,” she said. “You know you want to.”
“Believe me, I really don't,” said Cooper as he once again pulled her upright.
“It's after midnight,” protested Griffin.
“I never have,” argued Cooper.
“No one's even going to, what's the big deal?” responded Griffin as she went down again.
“I don't know what you're talking about,” Cooper said pulling her up as he handed it off to Brooke Baldwin in New Orleans.
Is this what the self-described "most trusted name in news" considers acceptable fare?
Consider that during the 2009 show, Griffin dropped an F-bomb. The year before she directed a vulgar oral sex reference to a heckler. Last year she stripped down to her underwear.
Yet CNN keeps inviting her back.
Boggles the mind, doesn't it?
Reunited trio make their live comeback with a secret set at a London New Year's Eve party
The original Sugababes played their first gig since reforming as Mutya Keisha Siobhan last night (December 31).
Mutya Buena, Keisha Buchanan and Siobhan Donaghy - the founding members of Sugababes - reunited last year (2012) to record a new album as Mutya Keisha Siobhan. The trio no longer own the rights to the Sugababes name, which is now used by a group consisting of three non-original members.
The reunited trio took to the stage shortly after midnight at an intimate New Year's Eve party hosted by Ponystep magazine in east London. Their performance had not been announced in advance, but some fans had guessed that Mutya Keisha Siobhan would be the event's "Special Guests" because they appear on the cover of the magazine's latest edition.
The group began their secret set with a rendition of 'Overload', Sugababes' debut single from 2000. The group were not backed by a live band at the low-key show, but they showed off their trademark vocal harmonies over a backing track.
After they finished the song, Buchanan noted that tonight's show was the first time the original Sugababes had sung live together "since we were about 15". The trio, now in their late twenties, followed 'Overload' by performing another favourite from the first Sugababes album, the seasonally appropriate 'New Year'.
The group then surprised the crowd by covering Rihanna's 'Diamonds', a song that Buchanan called "one of the highlights of 2012". Mutya Keisha Siobhan wrapped up their four-song set by performing a bass-heavy version of Sugababes' 2002 chart-topper 'Freak Like Me' - which was actually recorded after Donaghy had left the group.
Although the group played no new material, they left the stage promising that the Mutya Keisha Siobhan album will be coming out in 2013. According to Buchanan, it contains "some sick shit".
Mutya Keisha Siobhan played:

The dust has barely settled on Cassadee Pope's big win on "The Voice" last month, but with big changes in store for the show's fourth season -- most notably the addition of two new coaches -- it's never too early to look ahead. Billboard recently attended a press conference with those newbies, Usher and Shakira, as well as mainstays Blake Shelton and Adam Levine.
Shelton noted that with the departure of Christina Aguilera and Cee Lo Green, the dynamic has "definitely changed" and that throwing Usher and Shakira into the mix has fostered an added competitiveness to the NBC show, which comes back on March 25.
"Cee Lo was always so laid back," Shelton added. "He's kind of been the quiet killer in this thing. We replace Cee Lo with somebody that's just that more aggressive and now you've got four that are killers up here."
Added Levine, "Now you have a pregnant, hormonal Colombian. She's ready to bust some heads. She ain't messing around!"
Skakira admits that recruiting for her "Voice" team has certainly lit the competitive fire in her.
"Once we are in the process of trying to get a contestant recruited for our team, there's a lot of adrenaline and there's a lot of tension." She also mentioned her tendency to micro manage her career, which she says carries over to her mentoring. "When I'm giving directions to my contestants, I'm particularly focused on details."
Usher described Shakira as a mix of "comic relief, super f-cking serious, and gangster," explaining that "she's so nice now but she really pulls out that switchblade in the battle." He also revealed that his own coaching style is fairly serious. "My style is more military than anything because I'm all about the preparation. My style is to make them understand the seriousness of the craft and that they have the very best opportunity to be the greatest -- or the worst -- depending on how you take it."
Levine explained that Season 4's new coaches have already figured out how to leverage their strengths. Shakira plays the female card a lot -- "That's one thing we can't compete with really so she's smart" - and Usher likes to remind his fellow coaches of his success with Justin Bieber.
"As much as I hate to say this about another coach in the beginning, Usher has done what this show has yet to do - launch a superstar and that's our goal. That's something we want to do as an institution."
As the conference wrapped, Shelton agreed with Levine, and Shakira looked to Usher and playfully said, "We all want to be like you when we grow up."
While we'll undoubtedly miss Aguilera's outfits and Cee Lo's eccentricities on "The Voice," the new season looks to be chock-full of entertainment. Season 4 of "The Voice" premieres on NBC on March 25.
RIP Christina and Cee Lo :( I hope they come back someday. These new judges better bring it.
Miley Cyrus is blasting paparazzi as dangerous “fools” after a photographer was killed while snapping pictures of Justin Bieber’s car on Tuesday.
The singer-actress has been vocal in the past about her disgust with paparazzi intrusion, and the New Year’s Day tragedy involving photog Chris Guerra set off Cyrus on Twitter.
Guerra was struck and killed when he got out of his car to take pictures of Bieber’s Ferrari, which was being driven by the pop star’s friend and had been pulled over by the police.
“Hope this paparazzi/JB accident brings on some changes in ’13 Paparazzi are dangerous! Wasn’t Princess Di enough of a wake up call?!” asked Cyrus.
She continued, “It is unfair for anyone to put this on to Justin’s conscious as well! This was bound to happen!”
“Your mom teaches u when your a child not to play in the street! The chaos that comes with the paparazzi acting like fools makes it impossible for anyone to make safe choices.”
Sky Ferreira is back with another video from her Ghost EP. (She's previously shared videos for "Everything Is Embarrassing" and "Sad Dream". Like both of those, this one was directed by Grant Singer.)
Some of it probably looks familiar, as though it was shot at the same time as the art for the "Everything is Embarrassing" single.
The rest is 1980s-grainy home video-style footage: a mattress on the floor, smoking in dingy apartments, a shirtless tattooed guy, etc.
Also, beware! There are a lot of flashing lights in this video, which opens with a warning about epilepsy and seizures.

Kesha showed her softer side with some super cute kittens in the February issue of Seventeen, where she also had wise words for her animals — and revealed a pretty juicy secret about herself.
Rocking several different, diverse rock n’ roll, bohemian, flowery and just generally pretty looks, Kesha still looked like herself, which has always been super important to her… even when people don’t like what she’s doing. She admits in a behind-the-scenes video that she’s landed on worst dressed lists but that it doesn’t bug her, because it shows she’s doing her own thing.
“I used [negative comments] to motivate me then, and I still do,” she told the mag. “I remember every person who told me I couldn’t do something or that I was ugly or too fat. I have a ‘s— list’ — people from my past who have been soulless and judgmental. Even after I got through my awkward phase, got my braces off and figured out how to dress my body, people in the music business were like, ‘You’re never going to make it.’ I see them now and I’m like, ‘Ha!’ That’s one of the reasons I named my record ‘Warrior,’” she added. “You can be a victim and let that eat your soul, or you can say, You’re going on my list and I’m going to prove you wrong!”
First off, Kesha? Ugly? Fat? Are these people blind? She’s so cute! Still, she takes it in stride when people talk smack. “I’m very much into making fun of myself because other people do it so you have to be able to laugh at yourself,” she said. “The sooner you can laugh at yourself, the easier your life will be.”
That doesn’t mean she’s okay with outright bullying. In fact, she’s adamantly against it. “I’m all about standing up to gay/lesbian/transgender bullying, but it’s also about my little brother,” she said. “He’s 13 and he gets made fun of because he has a stutter. I just have zero tolerance for people making fun of others.”
Another reason K-Dollar Sign may be so against bullying of the LGBTQ community is because not only do they support her, but she identifies with them. She revealed, “I don’t love just men. I love people. It’s not about a gender. It’s just about the spirit that exudes from that other person you’re with.”
