    The guys from Nickelodeon’s Big Time Rush will get a real rush when singer Cher Lloyd guest stars in an episode of the boy-band show taping the week of Jan. 27 and airing this spring. In it, James (James Maslow), desperate for attention, and Katie (Ciaro Bravo) create a lie that he and Cher Lloyd are releasing a hot new duet and video.

    “We have been a huge fan of Cher Lloyd’s work since X-Factor. We are so excited to have her guest starring on BTR. She has a charming, sweet, and funny personality, which is a perfect fit for our show,” says BTR’s Logan Henderson. This will be the show’s fourth season, scheduled for 13 episodes.
    Public perception seems to be the theme for the whole of the episode: In addition to Lloyd’s storyline, the band makes headlines when Lucy (Malese Jow), Kendall’s ex-girlfriend, pulls a sort of Taylor Swift and releases an album about being dumped by Kendall (Kendall Knight) and it becomes a huge hit. Meanwhile Carlos (Carlos Garcia) gets bad press when he attempts to swat a bee but it looks like he’s hitting old ladies.

    James said the episode was based on an incident with a "big popstar" and something about fireworks and I think the incident was with Taylor Swift because one of the boys of BTR replied to Taylor on twitter about almost lighting her on fire at a party with Hot Chelle Rae a few years ago.

    A picture's worth a thousand words, but when it's a picture of Justin Bieber and R. Kelly, there may not be enough words to describe it!

    Could JB and the Pied Piper be working on a collaborative project? Could R. Kelly be giving Justin some words of wisdom...who knows?

    What is known is that Justin Bieber played the "Trapped In The Closet" singer some music — possibly from his upcoming acoustic Believe album — and that R. Kelly tweeted this Instagram pic, along with:

    Produced during Genndy Tartakovsky‘s tenure as the showrunner of Dexter’s Laboratory, Rude Removal was never aired by Cartoon Network. The premise sees evil twin variants of Dexter and Dede created, and they are RUDE. Though these dirty doppelgangers are bleeped out, they run around cursing up a storm.

    The segment was screened at Comic Con in ’98, I believe, but has only played a few times since, and in similarly locked-down circumstances. But today, Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim made the short available online. Here it is, in full.

    This was not that serious. I think the only reason it was banned was because you can actually tell which curse words are being censored, unlike similar Spongebob episodes. Also, I thought this was going to be leaked uncut. Oh well!

    Lyrics:
    [Hook]
    Too many bottles of this wine we can't pronounce
    Too many bowls of that green, no lucky charms
    The maids come around too much
    Parents ain't around enough
    Too many joy rides in daddy's jaguar
    Too many white lies and white lines
    Super rich kids with nothing but loose ends
    Super rich kids with nothing but fake friends

    [Verse 1: Frank Ocean]
    Start my day up on the roof
    There's nothing like this type of view
    Point the clicker at the tube
    I prefer expensive news
    New car, new girl
    New ice, new glass
    New watch, good times babe
    It's good times, yeah
    She wash my back three times a day
    This shower head feels so amazing
    We'll both be high, the help don't stare
    They just walk by, they must don't care
    A million one, a million two
    A hundred more will never do

    [Hook]
    Too many bottles of this wine we can't pronounce
    Too many bowls of that green, no lucky charms
    The maids come around too much
    Parents ain't around enough
    Too many joy rides in daddy's jaguar
    Too many white lies and white lines
    Super rich kids with nothing but loose ends
    Super rich kids with nothing but fake friends

    [Bridge]
    Real love, I'm searching for a real love
    Oh, real love, I'm searching for a real love
    Oh, real love

    [Verse 2: Earl Sweatshirt]
    Close your eyes for what you can't imagine; we are the xany gnashing
    Caddy smashing, bratty ass; he mad, he snatched his daddy's Jag
    And used the **** for batting practice, adamant and he thrashing
    Purchasing crappy grams with half the hand of cash you handed
    Panicking, patch me up; Pappy done latch keyed us
    Toying with Raggy Anns and mammy done had enough
    Brash as ****, breaching all these aqueducts; don't believe us
    Treat us like we can't erupt, yup

    [Verse 3: Frank Ocean]
    We end our day up on the roof
    I say I'll jump, I never do
    But when I'm drunk I act a fool
    Talking 'bout, do they sew wings on tailored suits
    I'm on that ledge, she grabs my arm
    She slaps my head
    It's good times, yeah
    Sleeve rips off, I slip, I fall
    The market's down like 60 stories
    And some don't end the way they should
    My silver spoon has fed me good
    A million one, a million cash
    Close my eyes and feel the crash

    [Hook]
    Too many bottles of this wine we can't pronounce
    Too many bowls of that green, no lucky charms
    The maids come around too much
    Parents ain't around enough
    Too many joy rides in daddy's jaguar
    Too many white lies and white lines
    Super rich kids with nothing but loose ends
    Super rich kids with nothing but fake friends

    [Outro]
    Real love (ain't that something rare)
    I'm searching for a real love (talking 'bout real love)
    Real love, yea
    Real love (real love)
    I'm searching for a real love
    Talking 'bout a real love

    Thoughts? I think this is an excellent single choice because it could easily get played on pop and urban stations. "Lost" is helping his sales so much in the UK and I am pretty sure this is going to be the US single also.

    Lena Dunham Talks Rihanna, Chris Brown Relationship: 'It Cracks My Heart In Half'



    Lena Dunham plays a disastrously forlorn character on her hit HBO show "Girls" -- at least when it comes to romance. But in real life, the 26-year-old creator and star isn't biting her tongue when judging others. In an interview with Alec Baldwin on his podcast "Here's the Thing," Dunham said that she "used to be really into" Rihanna but was ultimately turned off by the pop singer's recent reconciliation with Chris Brown.

    An excerpt from Dunham's interview is below:

    "[Being a role model] is amazing. It’s an amazing thing and it’s like, it’s a platform that you have to take seriously. Which is why sometimes it’s like I used to be really into Rihanna, that pop star, and then it’s like again, I don’t want to ever throw stones from my glass house, but I follow her on Instagram and I just think about how many little girls beyond what I could even comprehend are obsessed with Rihanna. Like you know, she left Barbados, she’s had this amazing career, she’s won a Grammy.

    "She’s talented. And then she gets back together with Chris Brown and posts a million pictures of them smoking marijuana together on a bed. And it cracks my heart in half in a way that makes me feel like I’m 95 years old."

    ABC has jumped into the Tuesday-night pilot frenzy, ordering four new projects including an hour drama from ER‘s David Zabel and a half-hour comedy exec-produced by Office scribes Lee Eisenberg and Gene Stupnitsky, TVLine has learned.

    The Zabel project, Betrayal, centers on a beautiful but unhappily married female photographer who begins a torrid affair with a lawyer for a powerful family. When he turns out to be defending a murder suspect who is being prosecuted by her husband, the relationship and the case begin a spiraling series of betrayals with cataclysmic results for everyone involved.

    Eisenberg and Stupnitsky’s prospective sitcom, Pulling, follows three dysfunctional women in their 30s living their lives the way they want, even if society tells them they should have it all figured out by this point.

    Other ABC pilots receiving production orders Tuesday:

    * The Returned, a drama from The Killing‘s Aaron Zelman, asks the provocative question, “What happens when the people you have mourned and buried suddenly appear on your doorstep as if not a day’s gone by? The lives of the people of Aurora are forever changed when their deceased loved ones return.”

    * Venice, a Romeo and Juliet-esque soap written by Without a Trace‘s Byron Balasco, focuses on two rival families living in “California’s most seductive city” and the forbidden and dangerous romance that emerges between them.

    Pilot Scoop: CBS Orders Beverly Hills Cop, Hart Hanson Drama and a Friends-ly Sitcom

    Check your tailpipe for bananas now, because CBS on Tuesday ordered a pilot for Shawn Ryan’s Beverly Hills Cop. The network also greenlit a drama pilot from Bones boss Hart Hanson and a sitcom from a Friends producer.

    As well-reported last year, the small-screen Beverly Hills Cop stars Brandon T. Jackson as Axel Foley’s police officer son Aaron, who like his dad finds himself walking the Beverly Hills beat. Ryan (The Shield) will pen the pilot, with Marney Hochman as a second EP.

    The drama project Backstrom, written and exec-produced by Hart Hanson, is based on the Swedish book series about an overweight, offensive, irascible detective as he tries, and fails, to change his self-destructive behavior. Leif G.W. Persson and Niclas Salomonsson also serve as EPs.

    CBS’ lone comedy pilot order (for the day) goes to Friends With Better Lives, from Friends producer Dana Klein and revolving around a group of 30something friends who each think the other has it better. Aaron Kaplan joins Klein as an EP on the multi-cam project.

    doctor-who_eccleston

    And everyone other actor who's played the Doctor (living and dead), but, you know, ECCLESTON!

    Wired writes:

    Every decade since the inception of Doctor Who there has been some sort of anniversary special that pays homage to the previous Doctors.

    It’s no secret this year there is a big 50th anniversary special in the works. There has been a lot of speculation about what this special will include, but everyone has hoped that it would feature all the living actors that have ever played the Doctor. While many of the actors are all too willing to play the Doctor again, Christopher Eccelston has been a lone hold out, claiming that he had no plans to return to the role.



    As of today Steven Moffat has confirmed that he is completing a script that will feature the current Doctor, Matt Smith, facing a foe so great that he will need assistance from all ten of the previous TARDIS inhabitants. That’s right, rumors say Eccleston is in!!! The producers have gotten agreements from all living actors who have ever played the Doctor; Tom Baker, Peter Davison, Colin Baker, Sylvester McCoy, Paul McGann, Christopher Eccleston, David Tennant, and Matt Smith. With some studio special effects they have even resurrected William Hartnell, Patrick Troughton, and Jon Pertwee.

    Everyone’s lips are sealed of course but we do know that there is no plans to feature former companions; Amy Pond (Karen Gillan), Rory Williams (Arthur Darvill), Rose Tyler(Billie Piper), Captain Jack Harkness (John Barrowman), Martha Jones(Freema Agyeman) and Donna Noble(Catherine Tate). There is still some speculation as to whether the Doctor’s wife, River Song (Alex Kingston), will be the one who brings all of the Doctor’s together against the eleventh Doctor’s wishes. This anniversary special is going to be epic! I’m already planning my Doctor Who themed party for it!

    The 50th anniversary special will not be the first time that the Doctors have joined forces. The 10th anniversary, in 1973 was celebrated with “The Three Doctors“. The 20th anniversary, in 1983, featured “The Five Doctors“. Even thought the 30th anniversary occured after the show had been cancelled, McCoy, Pertwee, Tom Baker, Davison and Colin Baker starred in a charity crossover episode of EastEnders. The 40th anniversary was marked with an audio adventure, Zagreus, starring McGann, Colin Baker, McCoy and Davison with additional archive recordings of Pertwee.

    Fiftieth anniversary writer Moffatt says: “You can’t please everybody but you don’t want anybody to feel let down by a big anniversary episode.”

    If any of Moffat’s previous writing has anything to say about his dedication to Doctor Who, this episode is guaranteed to impress!

    Update: It seems the original sources for writing this were more rumor then confirmed fact and I’ve edited the article to reflect that. However, as a gift I found out that according to the BBC banner at the 2013 London Toy Fair new details about the 2013 season have been released.

    The 2013 line-up:

    Series 7 Part 2 (8 Episodes / Spring 2013)
    50th Anniversary Special (1 x 60 minutes / Autumn 2013)
    An Adventure in Space and Time (1 x 90 minutes / Autumn 2013)
    Doctor Who Revisited (11 x 25 minutes / throughout year)

    I'm still incredibly bummed that the Companions won't be coming back, but so happy to have 9. I love David Tennant, but Eccleston is forever my favorite. I'm not 100% sure about CGI'ing the dead, though.



    What say you, ONTD? Still pissed about the exclusion of Rose, Jack and Martha? Worried that Moffat will (definitely) fuck it up?

    Also, just as a friendly reminder to NuWho Virgins:

    After taking a year to find his next project, David Fincher may be ready to helm another adaptation of a popular book.

    Fincher is in talks to helm Fox's "Gone Girl," adapted from the Gillian Flynn novel that has sold 2 million copies. No offer is on the table yet.

    Reese Witherspoon and Bruna Papandrea will produce through their Pacific Standard banner along with Leslie Dixon.

    Flynn's third novel, "Gone Girl" is the dark and suspenseful story of a woman who disappears on the day of her fifth wedding anniversary. It's not known if Witherspoon would be interested in starring as the mysterious wife.

    A bidding war ensued last summer when the book, which spent eight weeks at No. 1 for on the New York Times bestseller list, was offered to studios, and Fox paid seven figures to outbid studios including Universal.

    Fincher had been attached to direct a reboot of "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" for Disney. Sources say there is still a possibility he could do that project next and hold off on "Gone Girl." In October, Variety first reported that Disney had placed a three-month hold on the director as it decided whether to move forward. During this time, Fincher began courting his frequent collaborator Brad Pitt for the role of Ned Land, played by Kirk Douglas in the 1954 film version of "Leagues."

    The Pitt casting never came though, and the studio is still deciding what to do with the project, insiders say. Fincher had begun looking for other projects in case "20,000 Leagues Under the Sea" fell through.

    Fincher is also still attached to helm "Dragon Tattoo" sequel "The Girl Who Played With Fire," and Sony wants to get the next installment off the ground.
    Screenwriter Steve Zaillian is currently working on a pilot for HBO and hasn't had time to pen the script, one reason Fincher was looking for other projects until a script is ready.

    After a diverse bunch of adaptations including "Fight Club," "Zodiac," "The Curious Case of Benjamin Button" and "The Social Network," Fincher's adaptation of bestseller "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" for Sony grossed more than $230 million worldwide.

    The Welsh actor forged an unlikely friendship with Guangcheng last year (12) after the political protester fled his native China and settled in New York with his wife and two children, having spent two years under house arrest.

    Bale was on hand to honour Guangcheng at the Human Rights First Awards in the Big Apple last October (12), and the pair has stayed in contact - even enjoying a trip to 'The Happiest Place on Earth' with their families this weekend.

    Bale's seven-year-old daughter Emmeline chatted away to Guangcheng's little girl Chen Kesi, while the movie star helped to guide the activist as they walked through the theme park.

    Bale attempted to speak to Guangcheng in 2011, while he was under house arrest for organising a landmark class-action lawsuit against Chinese authorities. The actor travelled to Dongshigu, China with a CNN camera crew, but was turned away by government guards.

    LOS ANGELES — A 27-year-old man was ordered Tuesday to spend six months in a live-in rehabilitation center for stalking Hollywood actress Mila Kunis, as well as to keep away from the "Black Swan" star.

    Stuart Dunn pleaded no contest to one count of stalking in breach of a restraining order, after being arrested last January for having broken into a vacant condominium owned by Kunis. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge George Lomeli also ordered Dunn to serve five years on probation and issued a protective order to stay away from Kunis, her agents, managers and assistants He pleaded no contest last February to unauthorized entry of a dwelling and was ordered to stay away from the 29-year-old actress, but was arrested again last May after turning up three days in a row at the actress's gym.

    At a hearing last June detective John Gregozek testified that Kunis had told him she was "scared of Mr. Dunn" and "in fear for her safety," adding: "She stated that (the) defendant looked like he could eat me." Dunn could have faced up to four years in jail if convicted on the original two counts of stalking. Kunis rose to fame in the comedy "That '70s Show" before launching a film career which has included "Forgetting Sarah Marshall,""Friends with Benefits," and "Black Swan."

    MELBOURNE, Australia -- Serena Williams' dominating run at the majors is over. American teenager Sloane Stephens is headed to the semifinals of the Australian Open.





    Williams hurt her back in the eighth game of the second set, hampering her serve. She had treatment and recovered well enough to give herself a shot at winning the match, but the 19-year-old Stephens kept her composure in a 3-6, 7-5, 6-4 victory on Wednesday.

    It was the first loss since Aug. 17 for the 15-time Grand Slam winner, ending a run of 20 consecutive wins. She hadn't lost a match at a Grand Slam tournament since the French Open, where her first-round exit sparked a resurgence in the second half of 2012 that included titles at Wimbledon, the London Olympics, the U.S. Open and the WTA Championship.

    After winning her first Grand Slam quarterfinal, Stephens next plays defending champion Victoria Azarenka.

    Williams walked around the net to congratulate Stephens, who then clapped her hand on her racket and waved to the crowd, a look of disbelief on her face.

    She then went to her tennis bag, pulled out her phone and started checking for any text messages from her mother.

    "I was hoping she had texted me right away. I thought maybe she was texting me during the match," Stephens said. "I'm sure my grandparents are like freaking out."


    Stephens has said she had a photo of Williams up in her room when she was a child, and had long admired the Williams sisters.

    "This is so crazy. Oh my goodness," Stephens said, wiping away tears in her post-match TV interview. "I think I'll put a poster of myself (up) now."


    For her part, Williams said the bad back was just another problem to contend with at a Grand Slam event that had been "absolutely" her worst for injuries.

    "Everyone at this stage in the locker room has something wrong with them. It's no excuse," she said. "I went for this drop shot and it just locked up on me. I couldn't really rotate after that.

    "It was a little painful, but it's OK."

    Williams was up a set and a break before Stephens settled in. In the eighth game of the second set, Williams was chasing a drop shot to the net when she appeared to jar her back. She needed a medical timeout after the set, and then slowly started to regain the speed in her serve.

    But she was clearly frustrated at times, smashing her racket into the court in the third set and then flinging it toward the chairs on the side of the court. She looked to the sky occasionally and yelled at herself.

    Azarenka, with her most famous fan sitting in the crowd wearing a shirt reminding her to keep calm, overcame some early jitters to beat Svetlana Kuznetsova 7-5, 6-1 in the earlier quarterfinal match at Rod Laver Arena.

    After dropping serve in a long fourth game that went to deuce 10 times, Azarenka recovered to dominate the rest of the match against Kuznetsova, a two-time major winner who was floating dangerously in the draw with a No. 75 ranking as she recovers from a knee injury.

    Azarenka's American rapper friend, Redfoo, returned from a concert in Malaysia to attend Wednesday's quarterfinal match.

    Wearing a red sleeveless T-shirt that read "Keep Calm and Bring Out the Bottles," the name of his next single, Redfoo stood, clapped and yelled "Come on, Vika!" during the tight first set.

    Asked if it helped to have her No. 1 fan wearing a keep calm logo, Azarenka said "I was looking more at the part that says `Bring out the bottles.'"


    Of her game, she added, "I'm just glad I could produce my good tennis when it was needed."

    Williams' loss was a boost for Azarenka, who lost all five head-to-heads against the American in 2012 and is 1-11 in their career meetings.

    In the men's quarterfinals, 17-time major winner Roger Federer was playing No. 7 Jo-Wilfried Tsonga in a night match and U.S. Open champion Andy Murray was to meet Jeremy Chardy of France.

    Novak Djokovic is already through to the semifinals after his 6-1, 4-6, 6-1, 6-4 win over fifth-seeded Tomas Berdych on Tuesday night.

    The 2-hour, 31-minute victory took exactly half the time of his five-set, fourth-round win against Stanislas Wawrinka.

    "It was a great performance. I was hoping to have a shorter match ... just not to go over 5 hours," Djokovic said, in a comparatively subdued mood after a more routine victory. "It's always going to be tough against Tomas; he's an established player. He has a big game, big serve. He can compete against anyone on any surface."

    Djokovic will meet No. 4-seeded David Ferrer in the semifinals.

    Ferrer survived a quarterfinal battle with fellow Spaniard Nicolas Almagro. Almagro had three chances to serve for the match, but Ferrer broke back each time and went on to win 4-6, 4-6, 7-5, 7-6 (4), 6-2.

    Maria Sharapova had a 6-2, 6-2 quarterfinal win over Ekatrina Makarova on Tuesday, and has conceded only nine games in five matches – a record in Australia.

    "To be honest, those are not the stats you want to be known for," Sharapova said.

    She'll play Li Na, who reached the semifinals for the third time in four years at Melbourne Park after beating Agnieszka Radwanska 7-5, 6-3.

    VIDEO RECAP:



    This match was INSANE. Sloane looked so good out there and I'm happy for her. I love Serena but this moment means a lot more to Sloane that it does to her.

    To the casual observer, he really has got it all.

    Talent, good looks, yachts to party on anywhere he wants in the world with his famous friends... but it seems that Leonardo DiCaprio may be getting a bit bored of his gilded existence.

    The 38-year-old looked lost in thought on Monday as his yacht sat moored off the coast of Miami.


    article-0-17142FDF000005DC-623_634x547

    This was despite the fact that front of him was a sight that would jolt most men to attention; a semi-naked supermodel.

    But his old friend Naomi Campbell, stunning though is in her pure white two-piece, couldn't even seem to catch the Django Unchained star's gaze.

    Campbell, 42, and Leo go way back, they're thought to have had a short fling back in 1995, just before Leo got his big break in Baz Luhrmann's Romeo and Juliet a year later.

    And they remained close as friends, with the pair hanging out frequently... often on yachts owned by Leo, and more recently, Naomi's boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin.

    The Russian millionaire and his Streatham-born beauty partied with both Leo's most significant exes, Bar Rafaeli - who he dated for six years - and Blake Lively.

    On Monday, there was no date aboard with Leo and Campbell but a selection of women were hanging around on deck.

    Leo's mother Irmelin was also present, hence the calm atmosphere compared to Leo and Jonah Hill's bikini party in Sydney.
    Leo is taking a break from acting now that he's wrapped up filming for The Wolf of Wall Street.

    He reportedly told the German publication Bild that he is 'drained' and added: 'I'm now going to take a long, long break. I've done three films in two years, and I'm just worn out. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment.'

    Does anyone want to tell him what planes (and yachts for that matter) run on?

    Leonardo DiCaprio rocks a fedora while taking a tour of a hotel on Tuesday (January 22) in Miami, Fla.

    Over the weekend, the 38-year-old actor was seen cruising in a yacht with Naomi Campbell and other gal pals.

    Leonardo recently told the press that he will be taking a break from acting.

    “I am a bit drained,” he shared. “I’m now going to take a long, long break. I’ve done three films in two years and I’m just worn out.”

    Leonardo added, “I would like to improve the world a bit. I will fly around the world doing good for the environment.”

    After splitting for the second time in June 2011, former couple David Duchovny and Tea Leoni have listed their stunning New York City home, and RadarOnline.com has photos of the apartment that overflows with old world charm.

    Painted in a mix of bright colors and soothing shades, the beautiful residence on East 78th street in Manhattan was filled with fascinating antiques and art deco furnishings that the Hollywood stars must have spent years collecting since their marriage in 1997.

    Listed for $9.25 million, the 5-bedroom, 4.5-bath “maisonette” was once three separate artist studios, reported Zillow.com. The renovation into a single, large unit means that the apartment is 30 feet wide with 13-foot ceilings, and includes a renovated eat-in kitchen, terrace, separate laundry room and office.

    Both native New Yorkers, the couple first separated in 2008 in the wake of The X Files star checking himself into rehab for sex addiction. They briefly reunited and renewed their vows in 2009, but sadly the change of heart didn’t last and they have since broken up for good. They have two children together, daughter Madelaine West, and son Kyd.

    Macklemore & Ryan Lewis continue their out-of-the-box success story, as "Thrift Shop," featuring Wanz, tops the Billboard Hot 100 with a 2-1 rise in its 16th week. Justin Timberlake, meanwhile, vaults 84-4 following the first full week of airplay and sales for his comeback track "Suit & Tie."

    After the pair's independently-released album "The Heist" blasted onto the Billboard 200 at No. 2 the week of Oct. 27, "Thrift" thrives with the Hot 100's top Digital Gainer award for a second consecutive week. The atypical rap ode to bargain-hunting tops the Digital Songs chart for a second frame with 341,000 downloads sold (up 22%), according to Nielsen SoundScan.


    It remains at No. 1 on Streaming Songs ( ) with 1.68 million streams (up 16%), according to Nielsen BDS. It leads On-Demand Songs for a third week with 1.54 million on-demand streams (up 16%), rewriting the record for the most weekly on-demand streams dating to the inception of the list last March. (The survey includes data from subscription services Spotify, Rdio, Muve Music, Slacker, Rhapsody and Xbox Music.) "Thrift" passes the previous record-holder, Gotye's "Somebody That I Used to Know," which registered 1.41 million on-demand streams the week of May 5, 2012.


    Airplay continues to build for 'Thrift," which bounds 22-14 on Radio Songs with 58 million all-format audience impressions (up 32%), according to BDS. The track lifts 9-6 on Rhythmic, 17-16 on Alternative Songs and 23-18 on Pop Songs.

    "Thrift," which tops R&B/Hip-Hop Songs for a second week and Rap Songs for a third, marks the first debut Hot 100 No. 1 for a rap act since Wiz Khalifa sent "Black & Yellow" to the top the week of Feb. 19, 2011. The pair is also the first duo to dominate the Hot 100 with its first entry on the list since (cue the wedding DJ ...) Los Del Rio, whose pop culture smash "Macarena" ruled for a 14 weeks in 1996.


    With the coronation of "Thrift," the Warner Bros. label celebrates its first Hot 100 No. 1 since Jason Derulo's "Whatcha Say," (also a debut entry) led the Nov. 14, 2009, chart.

    "Thrift" dethrones Bruno Mars'"Locked Out of Heaven" (1-2) after six weeks atop the Hot 100. Still, "Heaven" logs a fifth week at No. 1 on the Radio Songs chart (146 million, down less than 1%). "Heaven" holds at No. 2 on Streaming Songs (1.26 million) and dips 4 -7 on Digital Songs (135,000, down 16%).

    Macklemore & Lewis win the race to the top of the Hot 100 by a fairly comfortable margin over "Heaven," as approximately 9,000 overall chart points separate the titles (after "Heaven" topped "Thrift" by about 3,000 points last week). "Thrift" gains by 22% in points, while "Locked" loses 6% of its sum.

    The Lumineers'"Ho Hey" stays at its No. 3 peak to-date on the Hot 100, while leading the Rock Songs chart for a 10th week. It pushes 3-2 on Radio Songs (117 million, up 3%), bullets again at No. 4 on Streaming Songs (1.25 million, up 5%) and holds at No. 5 on Digital Songs (156,000, up 1%).

    Justin Timberlake scores the Hot 100's lone new top 10, as "Suit & Tie" rockets to No. 4 from its No. 84 debut last week. The lead single from his forthcoming album "The 20/20 Experience" storms onto Digital Songs at No. 2 with 315,000 first-week downloads sold. As previously reported, the total marks Timberlake's best sales week for a download, besting the 250,000-unit start of his seven-week Hot 100 No. 1 "SexyBack" in 2006. It's the heftiest start for a song by a male artist since Justin Bieber's "Boyfriend" began with 521,000 the week of April 14, 2012. In its second week on Radio Songs (reflecting its first full week of airplay), "Suit" shoots 33-16 (54 million, up 50%), fueled by a record-setting start on Pop Songs, where it launches at No. 14 with more than 6,000 opening-week plays at the format.

    "Suit," which vaults 9-1 on the R&B Songs chart (and 27-2 on R&B/Hip-Hop Songs), grants Timberlake his 12th Hot 100 top 10 and first since Ciara's "Love Sex Magic," on which he guested, reached No. 10 in April 2009. He hadn't inhabited the top tier as a lead artist since "Summer Love" rose to No. 6 in June 2007.

    Timberlake now boasts twice as many Hot 100 top 10s on his own as he tallied as a member of 'N Sync; the boy band scored six top 10s between 1999 and 2002.

    After climbing to No. 2 three weeks ago, Taylor Swift's "I Knew You Were Trouble." continues gaining, despite slipping 4-5 on the Hot 100. The new No. 1 on Pop Songs claims the Hot 100's top Airplay Gainer award for a second straight week, charging 4-3 on Radio Songs with a 20% increase to 115 million. It descends 2-3 on Digital Songs (221,000, down 16%). The song is not available to subscription streaming services and thus, does not appear on the On-Demand Songs chart; its radio streams alone are not strong enough for it appear on Streaming Songs (which ranks both on-demand and non-interactive streams).

    Rounding out the Hot 100's top 10, will.i.am and Britney Spears'"Scream & Shout" bullets again at No. 6 (and leads the new Dance/Electronic Songs chart for a second week); EDM trio Swedish House Mafia's "Don't You Worry Child," featuring John Martin, holds at No. 7; Rihanna's former three-week Hot 100 No. 1 "Diamonds" drops 5-8; Justin Bieber's No. 5-peaking "Beauty and a Beat," featuring Nicki Minaj, backtracks 8-9; and Phillip Phillips'"Home," which takes over atop Adult Contemporary, retreats 9-10.

    Check Billboard.com tomorrow (Jan. 24), when all rankings, including the Hot 100 and On-Demand Songs in their entirety and Digital Songs and Radio Songs, will be refreshed, as they are each Thursday.

    Radio Times description:
    "Stephen Poliakoff's first major TV series, Dancing on the Edge, is coming soon to BBC2. Set in the early 1930's, the period drama follows black jazz musicians, the Louis Lester Band, as they find fame among London's upper classes. While many dislike the presence of black performers, other more progressive socialites warmly welcome them. But, when someone is found murdered, the band's world starts crumbling around them.

    The five-part series has an all-star cast, with appearances from Chiwetel Ejiofor, Matthew Goode, Anthony Head, Caroline Quentin, Mel Smith, Jacqueline Bisset and Jane Asher, plus The Paradise's Joanna Vanderham, Merlin's Angel Coulby and Entourage's Janet Montgomery."


    Stephen has created a multi-layered story with Dancing On The Edge that encompasses immigration, racism, the advance of jazz music and class. Is this a story with which people will be familiar?

    I think it is definitely true that there are aspects of this story that people aren’t familiar with and that immigration and multiculturalism took on a very specific meaning in the 50s with 'Windrush'.

    Obviously there was migration before then and people were introduced to every aspect of foreign cultures. What’s interesting about this is that within the context of music we’re introduced not only to this all-black band but also to the influences on Duke Ellington. There were groups of people in the aristocracy who were always addicted to the ‘new’ during this period.

    This is the time before in which the concept of immigration was a political gesture in and of itself. This band would have worked in the Merchant Navy, they would have established groups all around the United Kingdom, and would deal with prejudice in a localised way.

    That is part of the story but it is not the defining part of the story. What defines it is how all of the characters are involved in this massive crisis of identity and where they belong in any given society be they aristocrats or an all-black jazz band. This cross-fertilisation of cultures, and what that brings up in terms of loyalty, is at the heart of the story.

    It’s a multi-layered idea. It’s not a story about immigration or migration or racism per se, although this is the backdrop to some of their experiences. It’s about their personal relationships that happen at this window in time where Europe is on the brink of this massive devastation; where Europe as they knew it would cease to exist as it formally was.

    So the ideas of how these people relate to each other on a personal level is a representation of how Europe was dealing with these crises on a much wider scale, which inevitably lead it to this enormous conflict.

    There were race riots in that era but a lot of them had a different bent. There were race rights to do with blacks and Asians, but the main movement of racism at that time with Mosley and the black shirts had a slightly different agenda. But society had a general antagonism towards these elements and I think that is what is laced into Stephen’s writing.

    Some of the people that you see the Louis Lester band being introduced to within the aristocracy, who want to support his course and help to get his music out there, have a very liberal, sophisticated outlook to a point. I think it’s that point that is the crucial juxtaposition between their relationships. Ostensibly, on the surface they have the ability to include the Louis Lester jazz band in their world.

    Where does your character Louis fit into all of this?

    Louis never sees himself as included because he is not a fool. But he can on some level consider himself equal within the context of their society life. But he never trusts that they really afford him that. The distinction is that he would always consider himself foreign and that it was really just fortunate that he had all his papers to be able to move freely. A lot of the band did not and this is why the immigration authorities are constantly chasing them. He perceives himself as one of them, even though he was born in London.

    In some respects London at the time is much freer than, for example, New York or the southern states. Even though the origins of this music are from the US, it was the British aristocracy and royalty that promoted this relationship. It would not have been possible for Duke Ellington to have the same relationship within the US social structure.

    It’s as though London became a haven. Paris at that time was somewhere many artists and musicians were able to escape the prejudices of America. The fact that Ellington was able to cross the boundaries at that time in Europe I think is a crucial part of the dynamic.

    Tell us about the music and how that plays such a significant part of your character’s development.

    It’s not the first time I’ve played the role of the musician. As a pianist when I played in the Woody Allen film Melinda And Melinda. I play piano and as a kid I could play a little, but not to the level that occurs in the show. I started to meet the band individually during the rehearsal period. I think from the very beginning everybody liked the music. The music fits brilliantly into the era and into the origins of jazz but it’s also captivating in its own right for a modern audience. I was interested to get advice on how to play the bandleader and the guys are all such skilled musicians, they have so many years of experience under their belts, they were able to give me all the information I needed. And Angel and Wunmi as the two singers are just phenomenal. Them added to the band just gelled.

    There were people who are out there like Lesley Hutchinson, people who are part of this era of black jazz musicians who worked and became incredibly successful in London at this time. That was the obvious starting point for my research. Most of all it was about trying to work out the time – understanding the period of the 1930s. Particularly as people nowadays are not particularly aware of the issues that people had to deal with during this time. So the balance was to be able to present it authentically, but also in a way in which people would be able to engage.

    Collectively as a group, the more we looked at the 1930s, the more we realized that there was enormous crossover between the issues that people dealt with then and those that we deal with in our contemporary lives.

    Did you research the people of this era to get a sense of the way in which they spoke and presented themselves?

    When you listen to people talking in the 1930s you’re presented with this really complicated dynamic. People had a way of presenting themselves when they were in narration, which is just a fact of the time. It becomes harder to find people talking as themselves. When people presented on the radio they do so in the most refined way possible. But we know that people didn’t really speak like that to each other.

    The way Louis dressed himself is a major part of the way in which he presented himself and how he does find himself being accepted into certain parts of society. For me, he seems a very elegant man, wanting to present himself in the most glamorous light he can. What makes him distinctive is also what makes him slightly isolated. The nature of his isolation affords him the opportunity to be both able to distinguish myself from crowds and move between different layers of society. He is also able to create bonds with different groups easily because he is slightly Chameleon-like. Because he has papers, he can work and move freely and he uses this to his advantage.

    Tell us about your relationship with Stanley, Matthew Goode’s character. Are you similar in some respects?

    Both Louis and Stanley are both hungry for something. In a structure where people are born into privilege and where class is so prevalent, that hunger to break barriers is something that propels them both, I think. What Louis has that Stanley doesn’t is the ability to make any room stand up and dance. Stanley doesn’t have that. It’s almost like a superpower.

    But Stanley has his finger in a lot of pies and he’s going to push something until it works. I think that dynamic is exactly how people started to break down those class barriers. But they had to work incredibly hard to do it. Both men have to fight against certain prejudices and boundaries that are put in their way. Of course, inevitably with these stories, they realize that what they thought they wanted is not really what they were looking for. They learn that the reality of breaking through prejudice is much harder than they had initially imagined.

    It’s fascinating to see an interracial relationship at the heart of the show between Louis and Janet Montgomery’s character, Sarah. What do you think this says about the time and place in which the show is set? Does it demonstrate Louis’ bravery?

    In a sense, I think the bravery is hers. The concept of her being so forward thinking and her ability to push through general ideas of society and look at this person beyond just his skin colour and view him as an individual, is fascinating. In the jazz scene moving through Europe, it wasn’t uncommon to see interracial relationships. In relation to the laws of miscegenation in America at that time, there is marked distinction between these two continents.

    What do you hope audiences will take away from the show?

    I think people will relate to the show on a number of different levels. I think it’s amazing to have this music from this time. It’s incredible to have this cross-cultural group mixing with each other in this way. I think Stephen beautifully captures the language and the forms of expression that they have, the way they live their lives and what it means to them.

    I think the wider issues of England at this time was that the country was right on the cusp of really significant change, with people having to make really detailed and profound choices; not only of who they wanted to be but what kind of place they wanted to live in. There are a number of amazing ideas here that Stephen has brought together beautifully.
