How was your Friday night, ONTD?
It’s all change since midweek as neither the return of 50 Cent or Justin Timberlake has proven enough to overthrow reigning chart royalty Will.I.Am and Britney Spears from the Official Singles Chart top spot.
In a surprise upset today, returning US superstar 50 Cent is denied his first UK Number 1 by Will.I.Am and Britney Spears’ Scream And Shout.
Wednesday’s Official Chart Update reported US rapper 50 Cent’s new release, My Life, featuring Eminem and Maroon 5’s Adam Levine as heading for the Official Singles Chart top spot, which would have been Fiddy’s first chart topper this side of the pond. However, Will.I.Am and Britney dug their heels in, clawing back the Number 1 slot to make it two weeks running for Scream And Shout. My Life (Number 2) is taken from 50 Cent’s upcoming fifth studio album, Street King Immortal, which is slated for release on February 25.
Justin Timberlake returns to the charts for the first time in nearly three years today. The former ‘N Sync star unleashed new track Suit and Tie FT Jay-Z (3) to the world earlier this week. The last time Timberlake was in the UK Top 10 was guesting on Timbaland’s Carry Out in April 2010.
This week’s Top 5 is completed by Taylor Swift’s I Knew You Were Trouble (4) and Rihanna’s Stay FT Mikky Ekko (5).
New Entries and High Climbers
In addition to 50 Cent FT Eminem and Adam Levine's My Life (Number 2) and Justin Timberlake and Jay-Z's Suit And Tie (Number 3), there is just one other new entry on this week's Official Singles Chart.
Black Chandelier, the first single to be culled from Biffy Clyro’s long-awaited sixth album, Opposites, debuts at Number 14, giving the Scottish rockers their eighth Top 20 hit.
This week’s highest climbers are Lawson, up 80 places with Learn To Love Again, with actress Anne Hathaway scoring her first UK Top 40 hit with I Dreamed A Dream from the motion picture Les Miserables, up 58 places to Number 22.
The Top 10:
Why this song and not other Britney gems, UK?! I had no idea Rihdiculous' Stay was a thing somewhere in the world. And S&T is horrid! Let if flop the way it deserves.
Amazing as always. The more I listen to this song, the more I love it (the single still should've been How ya Doin? tho)
Speaking of British girl bands...Don't forget to watch Chasing the Saturdays tonight on E
The Supernatural hottie was spotted in Vancouver yesterday (January 19) spending an afternoon at the park with his lovely wife, Genevieve Cortese, and their super cute son, Thomas. Oh Thomas. I’ve been obsessed with that kid since they first showed him off wearing baby sunglasses.
Jared looked to be having a fantastic time at the park. He played on the swings with Thomas, hung out with his dogs and of course, showed off some really cute PDA with Genevieve. Somehow with the two of them it’s OK. You know the only thing that could have made the day any better?
If Jensen Ackles randomly showed up and the two of them went on some sort of crazy adventure. Well, the two of them and Thomas. Cause you gotta take Thomas everywhere. I mean, look how insanely cute he is?
Had to share these as soon as I saw them. Thomas is a cutie. One of the only things cuter is the way that Jared talks about him.
Comedian Steve Harvey is all about getting a laugh, whether as one of the cracking-wise "Kings of Comedy" or as the newest host of long-running game show "Family Feud."
But Harvey showed a more emotional side on his daytime television show this week, thanks to an unexpected call. Harvey, who turned 56 on January 17, took a call via satellite during the show's taping as part of his birthday special. What transpired next sent both Harvey and his audience to tears.
A man appears and wishes him a happy birthday, causing Harvey to whisper "Aw, man," before pacing the stage. "This is Rich Liss from Orlando, Florida," the man said. "Do you still love me, baby?"
Harvey bends over, choking back sobs for a few moments. "Hey, man," he said, still trying to pull himself together. "I love you."
It turns out Liss and his wife, Becky, were early supporters of Harvey, first when he was a 26-year-old running a fledgling carpet cleaning business, and later when he was trying to break into comedy.
"I was struggling," Harvey said, wiping tears away. "I didn't have nothing. And these people... took me in."
To hear the whole story and see the gift Harvey has planned for his early career benefactors and friends, watch the video above.
i don't care for him at all but this was really touching.
Shailene Woodley is currently showcasing her movie The Spectacular Now at the Sundance Film Festival and her acting is getting some great reviews from critics.
Some critics were skeptical of Shailene's acting ability due to her break out performance in Secrets of an American Teenager show on ABC. Then she wowed audiences in The Descendants with George Clooney.
For Woodley, this is also a confirmatory performance more than an eye-opener. The gap between the poised, unaffected actress in "The Descendants" and the wooden star of "The Secret Life of the American Teenager" was so vast that any amount of skepticism was well-earned. After watching Woodley in "The Spectacular Now," the weight of blame shifts fairly conclusively to the ABC Family drama. Capable of shifting between wallflower and camera-friendly starlet with organic ease, there's a vulnerability and openness to Woodley that's well-matched with Teller's defensive wise-cracking.
From The Hollywood Reporter:
Looking plain, even homely and singularly unadorned, Woodley is world away from the svelte little hottie she portrayed two years ago in The Descendents but again is entirely terrific.
Woodley wowed audiences in 2011′s The Descendants, and her work in The Spectacular Now is even better. No offense to her co-star, but it’s a bit more difficult to convince us that a girl as pretty as Aimee would be unpopular, but Ponsoldt doesn’t try to pull a She’s All That by saying that she’d be beautiful if only her hair wasn’t pulled back in a ponytail. He’s not trying to give Aimee a physical makeover because Woodley shows us that the character is beautiful on the inside. When she talks about her dream marriage at the dinner party of Sutter’s sister Holly (Mary Elizabeth Winstead), we can’t help but fall in love with Aimee.
Shailene Woodley (riding high from The Descendants) is charming and brings depth and truth to what could be a stereotypical female wallflower geek character we see in many other teen films.
In "The Spectacular Now," Woodley is relentlessly understated, never showy and utterly real. An auto accident involving her character is one of the film's only missteps – its aftermath isn't explored fully enough to justify the jolt – but she creates a character whose sunniness and concern for those around her clearly comes from a place of hurt
"The Spectacular Now" is, if anything, even better, featuring two performances from Miles Teller and Shailene Woodley that, in a just world where The Oscars and suchlike were actually about quality acting and not clever marketing, would earn them every possible consideration.
The film is getting raved reviews and universally loved, buzz is that Fox Searchlight and The Weinstein Company made offers.
Perhaps you recently saw the film Les Miserables. Perhaps you got a little caught up in the story of Fantine, the fired factory worker whose desperation to take care of her daughter fuels much of the early plot. Perhaps you made it to the moment where Fantine — played by Anne Hathaway — sings her signature ode to lost love and dashed hopes, “I Dreamed a Dream.” Perhaps you, like much of the rest of the sentient universe, broke down into a blubbering pile of raw-throated eye-gush emotional goo. You are not alone. Hathaway’s version of the song — which recently earned her an Oscar nomination and a Golden Globe win — has gotten everyone talking about a tune that was already one of Les Miz‘s most popular standards. “What [director] Tom [Hooper] and Annie have done is created a really raw, pure version of the song,” says Working Title co-chairman Eric Fellner, one of the movie’s producers. “There have been many great versions of the song, but I don’t think anybody has performed it this way, because it’s never been acted on screen before. It’s just very, very emotional.”
As Fellner points out, there have been plenty of memorable takes on “I Dreamed a Dream” since composer Claude-Michel Schonberg and lyricist Alain Boublil wrote the song in Paris in 1979.
Read on for a few of our favorites, along with some memories from people involved!
The Original French-Language Version of “I Dreamed a Dream,” performed by Rose Laurens
The original “I Dreamed a Dream” was first heard on a French concept album based on Victor Hugo’s book. It was one of two tunes sung by Fantine, who was voiced by a French singer named Rose Laurens. (The other Fantine song, “L’Air de la Misere,” would later become “On My Own,” which in the English-language musical is sung by Eponine.) “[I Dreamed a Dream] came late in the process of the creation, because we thought we needed another song for Fantine,” says Schonberg, who wrote “Dream” on a white piano in his small Paris apartment. The composer started with just a single line from the Hugo book, teasing out a melody and hoping for inspiration. “When I’m writing something, I sit down at the piano the same way I will be sitting down in the theater,” he says. “I say, ‘I’m in the dark in my seat, the curtain is open, she is arriving onstage. What am I going to see and what am I going hear?’ When I try to visualize what’s going to happen onstage, I might sometimes feel kind of a sparkle of light on the other side of the tunnel. To feel that there is something coming…that’s the best moment of the creation. Because you don’t share it with anybody. You’re on your own, and it’s a very intense moment of joy when you feel that you’re starting to catch some music in the air and this music makes sense and you know that the power of this music will drive you from the first bar to the last bar of the song. That’s a fantastic moment.”
“I Dreamed a Dream” performed by Patti LuPone, from the first English-language production of Les Miz
In 1985, theater producer Cameron Mackintosh brought Les Miz to London, now with English lyrics (courtesy of Herbert Kretzmer) and Broadway star Patti LuPone in the Fantine role. LuPone says that at first she didn’t quite grasp the song’s power. “When I started working on ‘I Dreamed a Dream’ with Claude-Michel and Alain — I’m not the type of person who has an immediate response,” says LuPone. “I’m a truly an organic actor singer, and it takes a while for it to get into my body, to know whether it’s a good song. When you’re in rehearsal, you’re rehearsing. Then all of a sudden you’re in performance, and then you understand what the effect is of the song. A stage actor performs for an audience. Your performance is only half done until an audience gets in and informs the rest of the performance. The first night of the very first preview was something that I will never forget, because the audience stood up [at the end of the show] and was screaming ‘bravo!’ and clapping with their hands above their heads. We all discovered the power of this piece in the playing of it.”
“I Dreamed a Dream” performed by Ruthie Henshall at the 10th Anniversary Concert of Les Miz
Les Miz proved to be a massive hit, and to celebrate its 10th anniversary Mackintosh assembled a “dream cast” to perform the show’s music in concert at London’s Royal Albert Hall. London theater star Ruthie Henshall sang “I Dreamed a Dream.” “We all knew we were part of something very, very special,” says Henshall. “Everybody just stepped up to the plate. We all performed it like it was the last time it was ever going to be sung. We all were so nervous. I remember walking to the mic and thinking to myself, ‘Come on darling, stop your legs from shaking.’ I was talking to myself as I walked up to the mic. And then as I started singing, I don’t remember anything else but just falling into the song. It will remain one of the most exciting nights of my career.”

Ruthie Henshall's performance of this song is probably my fav. Who's your favorite Fantine, ONTD?
1.) The casting couch works more than one way. This B- list television and movie actor is about to move up to B+ list or higher in the next few weeks with something that is going to be huge. His big breaks have come because even though he is straight, he is perfectly willing to sleep with another guy if it will advance his career. His biggest roles have come when he has had sex with the male producers casting for the roles.
2.) This A+ list movie actor is having an affair. Not a big deal, but we are talking Mr. Squeaky Clean here. We are talking kids. Married for a long time. Academy award winner/nominee. Parked his car at the hotel where he was meeting his mistress. Then the valet got into an accident with the actor's car. Not probably a big deal except the actor had told his wife that he was going to be doing looping all day and didn't have time to do anything with her and the kids. Now everyone knows he was at the hotel. His explanation has not convinced the wife.
3.) One too many visits to gay nightclubs has finally caused the C list movie actress of this A list all movie actor to finally give him the boot. He kept saying it was a place where he would not be mobbed by fans. Has he looked at himself in the mirror? She has just finally realized that she will come a distant second to guys.
On Wednesday, John Mayer sang onstage for the first time since he started battling the vocal issues that led to two surgeries and a canceled tour last year. Mayer made an appearance at a Bozeman, Montana, benefit show for firefighters, marking the first time he has sung in public in almost two years. He didn't reach deep into his catalog, starting with "If I Ever Get Around to Living" off his latest album, Born and Raised, and later joined the Zac Brown Band and others onstage for a jam on the Band's "Up on Cripple Creek."
"The sound of my voice sounded like my body was a radio dial and someone had knocked it and it was half-off the station," Mayer told the crowd of the granulomas that were discovered on his vocal cords. "I went to see the doctor about a couple of weeks ago and he looked at my throat, and I think it's gone." But the recovery left a lasting effect on Mayer; he told the Bozeman Daily Chronicle that although the granulomas healed nine weeks after surgery, he required Botox injections as part of the recovery. The injections typically take six to nine months to wear off, and they've affected Mayer's ability to sing high notes. "It lets up very slowly," he said. "Every couple of weeks, there’s another note."

How did Steven Spielberg choose to honor a revolutionary pioneer in the American abolitionist movement? By making a movie about some old white guy. We thought it was only right to give Brother Douglass a chance to speak his mind.
The follow-up to "Band of Brothers" and "The Pacific" will be based on Donald Miller's "Masters of the Air."
HBO confirmed Friday that it is developing a third World War II miniseries from Tom Hanks and Steven Spielberg.
Joining an oeuvre that already includes 2001's Band of Brothers and 2010's The Pacific, the untitled miniseries will explore the aerial wars through the eyes of enlisted men of the Eighth Air Force -- known as the men of the Mighty Eighth. The project will use at its source material historian Donald L. Miller’s nonfiction tome Masters of the Air: America’s Bomber Boys Who Fought the Air War Against Nazi Germany.
Spielberg, Hanks and Gary Goetzman again will serve as executive producers via Hanks and Goetzman’s Playtone and Spielberg’s Amblin Television. HBO executives have been in discussions about a third World War II miniseries for several months. Justified creator Graham Yost, who wrote several episodes of Brothers and Pacific, recently told The Hollywood Reporter that he was eager to reteam with Hanks and Spielberg on another WWII epic. And now that the source material has been optioned, the project can move into development. Additional source material might be added later.
Band of Brothers, an 11-hour epic that ran over 10 parts in 2001, was based on the best-seller by historian Stephen E. Ambrose, who died in 2002. It followed Easy Company, part of the Army's 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division, through their mission in Europe from Operation Overlord in 1944 through V-J Day a year later. The miniseries featured Damian Lewis; the British actor was then mostly unknown to American audiences but would go on to a slew of awards and accolades in Showtime’s Homeland. The premiere of Band of Brothers, just days before the 9/11 terrorist attacks, drew 10 million viewers (though ratings measurements at that time are less accurate than they are today).
The Pacific, based primarily on the memoirs Helmet for My Pillow by Robert Leckie and With the Old Breed: At Peleliu and Okinawa by Eugene Sledge, followed men in three regiments of the 1st Marine Division as they battled the Japanese in the Pacific from 1942-45. The first of its 10 parts pulled in 3.1 million viewers for its premiere in March 2010, during a much more cluttered entertainment landscape.
The miniseries are a significant financial commitment for HBO requiring the construction of large-scale sets, significant special effects and pyrotechnics and, because of the nature of the stories, big ensemble casts. Brothers cost $125 million to produce, and The Pacific was budgeted at $200 million; millions more were spent on promotion for both series.
But Band of Brothers and The Pacific are among HBO’s prestige projects, and both cleaned up during awards season. Brothers was nominated for 19 Emmys and won six, including outstanding miniseries; it also won Golden Globes and was awarded a Peabody. The Pacific took home eight Emmys in 2010, more than any other program.

Lance Armstrong May Have Lied to Winfrey: Investigators
Lance Armstrong may have lied to Oprah Winfrey during his so-called confession Thursday night about his doping during the Tour de France bicycle race, investigators told ABC News today.
Armstrong, 41, admitted for the first time that his decade-long dominance of cycling and seven wins in the Tour de France were owed, in part, to performance-enhancing drugs and oxygen-boosting blood transfusions. He told Winfrey that he was taking the opportunity to confess to everything he had done wrong, including angrily denying reports for years claiming that he had doped.
Investigators familiar with Armstrong's case, however, said today that Armstrong didn't completely come clean. They say he blatantly lied about when he stopped doping, saying the last time he used the drugs and transfusions was the 2005 race.
"That's the only thing in this whole report that upset me," Armstrong said during the interview. "The accusation and alleged proof that they said I doped [in 2009] is not true. The last time I crossed the line, that line was 2005."
"You did not do a blood transfusion in 2009?" Winfrey asked.
"No, 2009 and 2010 absolutely not," Armstrong said.
Investigators familiar with the case disagree. They said today that Armstrong's blood values at the 2009 race showed clear blood manipulation consistent with two transfusions. Armstrong's red blood cell count suddenly went up at these points, even though the number of baby red blood cells did not.
Investigators said this was proof that he received a transfusion of mature red blood cells.
If Armstrong lied about the 2009 race, it could be to protect himself criminally, investigators said.
Federal authorities looking to prosecute criminal cases will look back at the "last overt act" in which the crime was committed, they explained. If Armstrong doped in 2005 but not 2009, the statute of limitations may have expired on potential criminal activity.
The sources noted that there is no evidence right now that a criminal investigation will be reopened. Armstrong is facing at least three civil suits.
The second half of Armstrong's interview is set to air tonight.
Shock and disenchantment were among the reactions from people most familiar with the famed cyclist's history after his on-air confession Thursday night.
"I could not believe that Lance apologized," Betsy Andreu, the wife of Armstrong's former teammate and close friend Frankie Andreu, said today on ABC's "Good Morning America".
"Lance doesn't say, 'I'm sorry.' Lance isn't used to telling the truth and so I think in the days to come, in the months to come, I'm hoping that we'll see the contrition. Actions speak louder than words so if the words aren't empty ...," Andreu said.
ABC News consultant and USA Today columnist Christine Brennan called Armstrong's admitting that he used performance-enhancing drugs "a major miscalculation."
"This is like Bernie Madoff coming back after three months or Richard Nixon coming back after three months. No one wants to hear from those people so soon," Brennan told George Stephanopoulos on "Good Morning America."
"It was a lose-lose going in. I think he did more harm than good to his reputation, and he just looked cold-blooded, and cutthroat, and ruthless," Brennan said.
Minutes after Armstrong's confession aired on Oprah Winfrey's OWN network, the Livestrong Foundation -- the Austin-Texas-based cancer charity that he founded -- released a statement expressing disappointment in their former leader.
"We at the LIVESTRONG Foundation are disappointed by the news that Lance Armstrong misled people during and after his cycling career, including us," the statement read. "Earlier this week, Lance apologized to our staff and we accepted his apology in order to move on and chart a strong, independent course.
"Our success has never been based on one person -- it's based on the patients and survivors we serve every day, who approach a cancer diagnosis with hope, courage and perseverance."
Travis Tygart, head of the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency, said in a statement, "Tonight, Lance Armstrong finally acknowledged that his cycling career was built on a powerful combination of doping and deceit. His admission that he doped throughout his career is a small step in the right direction. But if he is sincere in his desire to correct his past mistakes, he will testify under oath about the full extent of his doping activities."
The agency issued an October report in which 11 former Armstrong teammates described the system under which they and Armstrong received drugs with, they say, the knowledge of their coaches and help of team physicians. As a result of the organization's findings, Armstrong was stripped of his seven Tour de France titles. Soon, longtime sponsors including Nike began to abandon him, too.
John Fahey, president of the World Anti-Doping Agency said, "He was wrong, he cheated and there was no excuse for what he did. If he was looking for redemption, he didn't succeed in getting that."
Such a reaction\ to the highly anticipated interview was only the tip of the iceberg as pundits, those close to Armstrong and even everyday people took to Twitter and other social media outlets to share their thoughts on what Armstrong said was "one big lie that I repeated a lot of times."
Cyclist and former Armstrong teammate Jonathan Vaughters tweeted, "A good first step. I need to sleep."
David Walsh, author of the Lance Armstrong book, "Seven Deadly Sins," tweeted, "First reaction is Oprah began the interview brilliantly with her series of 'yes or no' questions. It felt good to hear him admit to doping."
The reaction included Brennan's USA Today column headlined, "If Possible, Armstrong Less Likeable After Oprah."
"He was even more unlikable than one might have imagined. He was smug. He was curt. He was cold and unfeeling," Brennan wrote.
But more legal troubles could be on the horizon for the former Tour de France winner after this tell-all interview.
"He's opening himself up to an enormous amount of possible civil litigation here that could lose him millions of dollars," ABC News legal analyst Dan Abrams said.

The mind of an artist can be a very dark attic. They go imagining things and keeping it there. Making a huge quilt of ideas. Till, one day, when everything is tied up, they bring it all down and show us.
In a recent interview to Entertainment Tonight, Kevin Williamson revealed major details about his original ideas to Scream 3, that will never see the light of the day in its primary form - it will be called The Following.
As a fan, I can't help to dream how this would look as if Williamson had written it for the final chapter of the first trilogy, or as Scream 5...

Khloe Kardashian is sick and tired of being considered the "bigger" Kardashian. The "X Factor" co-host loves her body and admits she's confident because of her curves.
"A few years ago I lost 30 pounds, and people still wanted to criticize. And honestly, I’m happy with myself if I’m a little heavier," Khloe tells Glamour magazine. "I realized: 'Why am I trying to conform to someone else’s idea of beauty?' I think I’m beautiful either way."
Khloe also confesses that she tries not to compare herself to her sisters Kim and Kourtney, especially when it comes to beauty.
"I’m a little more silly than they are," she explains of her distinct style. "I like to do designs on the side of my face, or cut out foil stickers from the crafts store and put them on my forehead."

Target has announced that Kate Young, stylist to the likes of Natalie Portman and Michelle Williams, will launch a budget collection this spring. The Target line will focus on evening-wear, and early sketches show flowing cream evening gowns and Peter Pan collar tea dresses.
The collection will make her coveted red carpet style available and affordable, with semi-formal and special occasion dresses ranging in price from $29.99 to $89.99. The collection will also include jewelry, handbags and shoes, available on the Target website only, priced between $14.99 and $49.99.
Said Ms Young in a press release: ‘I’ve been working with Target for a number of years as a stylist, so having the chance to design my own collection with a brand I already know and love is like a dream come true.’
Ms Young, who is married to music executive Keith Abrahamsson, also styles red carpet favorites including Michelle Williams and Rachel Weisz. Though she has years of experience styling celebrities with other designers' creations, this will be the first time she can call the looks her own.
'With this collection, I wanted to design standout pieces that allow women to experiment with fashion and create their own red carpet moments,' she said in an interview with ABC News.
In a statement to WWD, a Target Corp. spokesman explains, ‘As [designer collaborations] have become more common, our partnerships have taken on many different shapes.’
Said Ms Young in an interview with Refinery 29: 'As a stylist, I wanted to create a collection that allows and encourages all women to create their own red carpet moments, no matter the occasion.'
The celebrity stylist’s collection will hit stores and Target.com on April 14.
