She is literally perfect looking.
Tracey Ullman is in negotiations to join the growing cast of Into the Woods, Disney’s adaptation of the Broadway musical being directed by Rob Marshall.
Ullman will join an all-star roster that so far includes Meryl Streep, Johnny Depp, Chris Pine, Jake Gyllenhaal, and Emily Blunt. The play is a darkly comic mashup of classic fairy tales that revolves around a childless baker and his wife (Blunt), who attempt to lift a family curse by journeying into the woods to confront the witch that put the spell on them. Along the way, they encounter a group of characters including Rapunzel, Cinderella and Little Red Riding Hood.
Streep is playing a witch and Depp is taking on a variation of the fairy tale wolf. Gyllenhaal and Pine play princes to Cinderella and Rapunzel.
Ullman will play the mother to Jack the Giant Killer, who has yet to be cast.
The role will be Ullman’s first film gig since appearing in I Could Never Be Your Woman, a 2007 comedy by Amy Heckerling, which starred Michelle Pfeiffer and Paul Rudd.
I'd say she'd be good for this kind of film but this film seriously doesn't need to happen if Depp is gonna be involved.
Tom Hardy will present a new ITV documentary series on the stark reality of wholesale wildlife poaching in Africa.
Tom has always loved animals. When he became aware of the truly cataclysmic damage being inflicted on Africa by a ruthless and voracious poaching industry, the BAFTA award-winning actor (Inception, The Dark Knight Rises, Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy) made it a personal commitment to travel to South Africa, Botswana and Tanzania and uncover the hard truths about why poaching has reached these crisis levels. And see for himself what can be done to stop the killing.
Tom is determined to use this documentary series, Poaching Wars With Tom Hardy [WT] to ask the key questions that shed more light on this issue. The actor conceived the proposition for the 2x60 films which is a co-production between Burning Bright Productions and Tom’s production company, Hardy, Son & Baker.
Poaching Wars with Tom Hardy is commissioned by ITV's factual team.
All over Sub-Saharan Africa, the poaching crisis is spreading like a plague. Cameroon, Chad, Mozambique and the Democratic Republic of the Congo have all seen large-scale elephant slaughter and throughout the rest of Africa, both rhino and elephant are being killed in alarming numbers, bringing both species to the brink of extinction.
On his trek across the continent, Tom meets those affected and involved on all sides of the industry, including the farmers who have lost livestock to poachers, plus key figures from organisations fighting back against poaching on the ground and in government.
The huge amounts of money involved means the cost is counted in both human and animal lives. And Tom learns at close range about the dangerous people involved in poaching and why they are prepared to kill and die for the wealth there, unprotected, for the taking.
Jo Clinton-Davis, ITV Controller of Factual, said: "The story of the impact of wildlife poaching in Africa is one that is important to tell now more than ever. Tom Hardy's palpable concern and commitment to shedding light on what is happening and what the answers might be allow him to bring this reality home in a way that we believe will resonate powerfully with our audience."
Dean Baker, Executive Producer of the film for Hardy, Son and Baker, said: "Hardy, Son and Baker are delighted to be working with ITV on this project. Tom's goal is to bring the senseless slaughter of endangered wildlife in Africa, to the attention of the masses. This documentary is the first step of that process. We both hope it finds an engaged, empathetic audience who can be motivated to action.”
Poaching Wars With Tom Hardy is executive produced by Tom Hardy, Dean Baker and Clive Tulloh. The film is produced and directed by Ewen Thompson.

While Kanye West's new album "Yeezus" hasn't been released yet, sales forecasters in the music industry are buzzing about how much the set could sell in its first week.
Those in the know suggest the album, due out June 18, may sell 500,000 copies in its first week. Readers might wonder: How do said forecasters come up with a projected sales figure -- when the album isn't even on sale yet?
Basically, these skilled sources make it their business to crunch numbers all day long. Sales forecasts, such as this one for "Yeezus," are based on early orders from retailers, first-week performance of comparable albums, media exposure, radio and YouTube trends for an album's first single, and so forth. These sources each have their own forecast model, so to speak, that helps generate sales projections.
Sometimes, depending on how far out we are from an album's release, a forecast can be wildly different from the final outcome. In general, you can best guess an album's debut sales week once it's actually on sale.
For example, on March 11, sources told Billboard that Justin Timberlake's "The 20/20 Experience" (not due out until March 19), might sell 500,000 in its debut week. Ultimately, that figure got much bigger, as the album performed stronger than anticipated. It finished with a No. 1 debut on the Billboard 200 chart, selling 968,000 copies in its first week, according to Nielsen SoundScan.
Last month, on May 17, forecasters projected that Daft Punk's "Random Access Memories" -- due out four days later -- could sell between 250,000 and 300,000 in its first week. The album sold even better -- moving 339,000 in its debut frame.
West's last album was a collaborative effort with Jay-Z, "Watch the Throne." That set debuted at No. 1 in 2011 with 436,000 copies sold in its first week -- mostly from sales driven by an exclusive early deal with the iTunes Store. (The set was available exclusively through iTunes for its first four days of release, and then went wide to all digital and physical retailers after that.)
West's last solo studio album, 2010's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy," arrived during Thanksgiving week of that year, and debuted at No. 1 with 496,000 sold.
Unlike both of those albums, West's new "Yeezus" wasn't preceded by a single aimed towards radio airplay. Shockingly, "Yeezus" has yet to leak (as of June 12). In comparison, another album due out the same day as "Yeezus," J. Cole's "Born Sinner," leaked to the Web on June 7. Cole quickly posted a stream of the album to his web site, along with a prompt to urge fans to pre-order the album via iTunes.
Back in 1996, I received an email from a 11-year-old asking me questions about my first novel, RATS SAW GOD, that had come out that year. The girl was doing a book report, and she'd gone the extra mile by tracking me down. One of her questions was, "What do you want to do next?" I replied that I was hoping to transition into the TV and film business. She responded that she'd done some film work herself.
A girl with big dreams of being an actress! How sweet! I thought to myself. I should say something encouraging!
I figured she'd been an extra in a friend's short film, or something along those lines, I wrote back asking her, politely I hoped, what movies she'd been in.
"Waterworld," she wrote. "Corrina Corrina. When a Man Loves a Woman."
She was very sweet, though. She told me I should keep chasing my dreams.
I thought the backstory was cute, so I hope you don't mind me including it! I am so happy, and I kind of hope we get some Madison/Mac moments. :)
On the six-month anniversary of the tragic death of Jenni Rivera, her mother Rosa felt that the family should pay tribute to the star in a special ceremony. The event was attended by her surviving family members Rosie, Pedro Jr., and the daughter of Jenni, Jackie.
"Every day is a little harder, Every day you realize that you need your child? A child is something that is very sacred, you never expect your child to die, it will always be a tragedy" Rosa, Jenni's mother said at the event.
The mother of Rivera says that it is important for them to stick together and ensure the welfare of the children. "Juan is very close to the children, Rosie is with them too, Gustavo helps out in any way he can, Pedro, Pastor and Lupillo, are also too," said Rosa.
Jenni's fans gathered outside All Souls Cemetery and released white and red balloons with music from Jenni to honor her memory.
The family announced that it would go ahead with plans that Jenni had of opening a record label to promote aspiring Latino singers. JRE/Divina Music has signed singer Monica Padilla. The label will also include a project by Juan Rivera and a Christian themed album by Rivera's daughter Jackie.
Rosie Rivera, the administrator of her sister's estate, said in a statement that her sister "had many expectations of this project ... we are putting a lot of energy to complete her dreams."
Actresses Deyra Barrera and Mireya Limon recently stated that they were excited to play the role of Jenni Rivera in the planned biopic "La Diva de la Banda."
During their first press conference Barrera stated that she was happy for the opportunity and that she had a big responsibility. She added that she would respect the role and do the best work possible. Limon also said that she was thrilled and that the responsibility was immense.
Limon and Barrera beat out 8,000 candidates who auditioned for the role as well as famed actresses Angelica Vale and Alicia Machado.
Francisco Joel Mendoza will direct the controversial film, which the Rivera family is firmly against. The deceased diva's relatives feel that they are the only individuals with the rights to make the film.
Mendoza recently revealed a document that was signed by Rivera and gave him authorization to make the movie. He also stated that he knew the family would not approve but was ready to confront any legal issues and even go to jail.
"La Diva de la Banda" is slated to start shooting in July. According to reports the film will contain 80% of Rivera's life and will also have fictionalized events. The film is slated to cost $14 million dollars and will then hit theaters on December 6th in Mexico.

After years of insisting that marriage wasn't in their future together, Joshua Jackson and girlfriend of seven years Diane Kruger are planning to take the plunge, a source reveals in the June 17 issue of Us Weekly. "Josh and Diane are very close to getting engaged," the pal reveals. "They decided they're ready for the next step. They're excited!"
The pal adds that Jackson -- who celebrated his 35th birthday on Tuesday, June 11 -- will propose this summer and says their wedding will happen imminently.
The Fringe alum hinted that he was having a change of heart about tying the knot when he spoke to Us one year ago at Montblanc's 24 Hour Plays in L.A. "Marriage is important for the people it's important for, but neither one of us is particularly religious, so I don't think there's any particular push," he said in June 2012. "But never say never! I don't know."
not sure how to feel about this, i always liked how they stayed together without needing a ring.
Earlier this week, Nintendo released the Bayonetta 2 E3 trailer, in which Bayonetta’s new hairstyle was shown for the first time. Siliconera had the chance to ask the game’s producer, Yusuke Hashimoto, why Bayonetta’s hair was changed for the upcoming sequel. Hashimoto explained that Bayonetta isn’t the type of character with a dull personality, and that she enjoys changing her style, fashion sense and costumes in order to preserve her audacious figure. Bayonetta 2 will be released exclusively for Wii U in 2014.
“We think of it less as cutting her hair. Her personality is the type that would not want to remain stagnant. She would want to change her style, taste in fashion, and her costumes. Down the line in the series, she may make further changes to her appearance.” -Hashimoto
For those that missed it, here is Bayonetta 2's trailer:
Hashimoto gives me really creepy vibes, but I actually like her new hairstyle a lot. And omg @ "down the line in the series" praying this game smashes when it's out.
all dem white boys, jeez Australia i thought we were <i>diverse</i> this reminds me of that Oprah trip
HANNIBAL series creator Bryan Fuller says people should definitely tune into tonight’s episode, “Releves,” which airs tonight, Thurs. June 13, on NBC at 10 PM. “Episode Twelve, the penultimate episode, is so fantastic, because all of these threads – we land the plane on so many issues and really kind of deliver what’s going on and what Hannibal’s plan is and Will is figuring it out. So many dangling story issues get resolved or addressed in the penultimate episode of the season, and then all of that gets spiked in the finale.”
HANNIBAL is based on the character created by Thomas Harris in his novel RED DRAGON, which was first adapted for the screen as 1986’s MANHUNTER, with Brian Cox as imprisoned serial killer and cannibal Hannibal Lecktor. In 1991’s SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, Anthony Hopkins took over the role and won an Oscar for his performance, while the spelling of Hannibal’s surname was changed to Lecter. Hopkins portrayed the character twice more, in 2001’s HANNIBAL and 2002’s remake RED DRAGON, with Gaspard Ulliel taking on the role in the 2007 prequel HANNIBAL RISING (all based on Harris’ novels).
Fuller’s HANNIBAL is set in the days before the eponymous character was caught. Mads Mikkelsen plays Dr. Lecter as a psychiatrist who is treating FBI profiler Will Graham, played by Hugh Dancy. Will is trying to solve the case of the Chesapeake Ripper, unaware that his doctor is the guilty party. Caroline Dhavernas plays fellow FBI agent Alana Bloom, who has both romantic feelings and genuine concern for Will’s welfare, and Laurence Fishburne portrays their boss Jack Crawford, whose reservations about Will’s welfare don’t stop him from pushing the troubled profiler to the breaking point.
Fuller began his professional writing career with STAR TREK: DEEP SPACE NINE and moved on to become a producer on STAR TREK: VOYAGER. He has since created and executive-produced DEAD LIKE ME, WONDERFALLS (with Todd Holland) and PUSHING DAISIES, as well as serving as a writer/producer on HEROES.
In an exclusive phone conversation, Fuller talks about his newest and darkest creation, which has been renewed for a second season.
ASSIGNMENT X: You’ve said you initially got involved in HANNIBAL because you were approached by Katie O’Connell, an executive with the production company Gaumont, talked to you on a plane and asked you about HANNIBAL …
BRYAN FULLER: Right. That was a fateful plane ride. Katie O’Connell, we had not necessarily worked together before, but were about to – when I was finishing up PUSHING DAISIES, she [was at that time an NBC executive and] called me about HEROES. We were about to launch on this new season of HEROES together, and then she left NBC, and I left the show shortly after she left. Katie [said], “Do you think there’s a show here that’s worth exploring?” And because I had read the books, I knew how much more psychologically complex Will Graham is in the literature than he is in the film, I thought, “Wow, there’s a great opportunity to deliver on that line from RED DRAGON that Hannibal Lecter says, which is, ‘You caught me because you’re as insane as I am.’ There’s a whole world in that explores their friendship.” If we are dealing with the Hannibal Lecter who’s a practicing psychiatrist and a practicing cannibal, then he’s out in the open amongst us, a wolf in psychiatrist’s clothing, and wouldn’t that be such a terrifying thing for someone like Will Graham, who is uniquely vulnerable to his own psychology, to have somebody there with access to the buttons of his mind.
AX: Prior to HANNIBAL, had you been looking to do something this dark, or is it that that once you got the project, you found within yourself, “Hey, I actually want to go here”?
FULLER: Well, I had always been a horror fan, and I have pictures from my youth of makeup effects with arrows sticking all over throughout my body like a pincushion. For me, I also enjoy a little bit of whimsy and levity and humor to cut my horror. But it was interesting. I felt like, “Oh, this will be different for me.” That was just the big appeal – to do something that was very dramatic, that was more serious in tone, and I think it was just to cleanse my palate in a way and try something different, and really engage the characters, not from a romantic comedy point of view, but very high-stakes drama. Also, psychological horror is so insidious that I thought, “How can I shape this into my lens that gives it a valid point of view, but also allows me to express myself as an artist?” I still very much consider myself an artist and have to say something with what I’m doing. I can’t just write something that I’m not emotionally connected to in a great way, so I found myself very much emotionally connecting to Will Graham. I have written about characters who experience isolation in various ways and he felt like somebody that was in my wheelhouse. Also, it was fantastic for me to have Hugh Dancy on this project, because we were both Will Graham in different ways, and that he’s such an intelligent actor and so insightful with the character that it was the beginning of a great partnership; I didn’t feel like I was alone.
AX: Hugh Dancy plays Will as though the character has a great sense of shame …
FULLER: Well, there’s a line in RED DRAGON where Will says that he looks at his ability as something grotesque and evil, so I think [he feels] a bit of shame that he can think like these people and he can understand the horrors that men do, and for him, the vulnerability is, “I can understand it – does that mean that there’s a little bit of it inside me?” And that could be where the shame comes from. But he definitely is aware of the darkness and uncomfortable with it, because he I think on some level feels the seduction, and that’s what Hannibal then taps into to try to exploit it.
AX: You’ve said in other interviews that Will and Jack Crawford have got to at some point twig to the fact that there’s something going on with Hannibal, or they start looking bad at their jobs. Can the series continue if Hannibal is arrested?
FULLER: Oh, yes. Season Four is RED DRAGON, and that’s when Hannibal is incarcerated. So some time before Season Four. But absolutely, I think there are rich, rich stories to be had while Hannibal’s incarcerated and what happens when he gets out.
AX: How many seasons do you have plotted?
FULLER: I can see pretty clearly seven seasons. I think that there are always shifts and alterations and course corrections that you have to take, because you’ll be cruising along and then you’ll hit an idea and go, “Oh, wow, that’s a great idea, we have to do that now.” That being said, I can see the structure for a seven-season arc for the show, but then I also am very open to course corrections along the way to adapt to changes.
AX: If you don’t get to run for seven seasons, are you going to make available to the public in some form what the unaired seasons would have been?
FULLER: Well, when you get into Season Four, you get into the literature. And so Season Four would be RED DRAGON, Season Five would be the SILENCE OF THE LAMBS era, Season Six would be the HANNIBAL era, and then Season Seven would be a resolve to the ending of that book. HANNIBAL ends on a cliffhanger. Hannibal Lecter has bonded with Clarice Starling and brainwashed her and they are now quasi-lovers and off as fugitives, and so that’s a cliffhanger. It might be interesting to resolve that in some way and to bring Will Graham back into the picture. So once we get two more seasons, say, of the television show, those are the aren’t-novelized stories, and then we would get into expansions of the novels after that and kind of using the novels as a backbone for season arcs that would then be kind of enhanced.
AX: Assuming you cover the eras of SILENCE OF THE LAMBS and HANNIBAL, when Will Graham isn’t a character in the books, what do you do with Hugh Dancy for those two seasons?
FULLER: Well, it would be about incorporating him in a way that he hasn’t been incorporated in the books, because Will Graham was only mentioned in SILENCE OF THE LAMBS, he was not seen, and so I would be curious to see what happens to Will Graham after RED DRAGON. By the time of RED DRAGON, he’s married to Molly and has her son from a previous marriage, but doesn’t have any children of his own. And then that relationship is more complicated by Francis Dolarhyde and there were suggestions that there was a not-so-happy ending for Will Graham after RED DRAGON because he has his face carved up and you wonder what’s going to happen to Will now, and I’m curious to see what happens to Will after that.
AX: How did you decide to cast a Danish actor, Mads Mikkelsen, as Hannibal?
FULLER: Hannibal Lecter is actually Lithuanian, and Eastern European, which is not Denmark [laughs]. But the interesting thing for me was to work with Mads Mikkelsen, because I think he’s a phenomenal actor and not just in CASINO ROYALE and a lot of the big genre films that had made me aware of him through, “Hey, that’s the guy with the eye patch,” or he’s played heavies in these big science-fiction/fantasy films, but for me what did it was this film AFTER THE WEDDING. It’s a beautiful film and he plays this heartbroken man who is trying to get back a lost romance and he was so sweet and emotional and vulnerable, and I really wanted meet him, because I felt like [part of HANNIBAL is] about Hannibal Lecter trying to find a friend, because he’s lonely in his own way. I wanted to see that vulnerability, that bonding, that need for a companion to share his life with in a way that he thought would never be possible. Then along comes Will Graham, a man who empathizes with the worst of humanity, and perhaps there could be a chance for Hannibal to have a friend after all. It felt like it was such a fascinating place to take a villain. It would be very easy to [depict] Hannibal Lecter as a psychopath or a sociopath, and in the book RED DRAGON, Thomas Harris says, “He’s not really a psychopath or a sociopath, because he does understand empathy, so what kind of crazy is he, and the answer is, we don’t know.” Primarily because it’s a work of fiction, but he does not fit any of the kind of the categories of the multi-phasic tests for psychopaths. He doesn’t fit any of those columns, so [the series] looks at him not as a psycho, but as someone who was completely Other.
When [Mikkelsen’s] name entered the [casting] conversation, I was like, “Oh, my God, yes, yes, yes. Yes, absolutely.” Because I had seen AFTER THE WEDDING and was aware of what an experienced and full-bodied actor he was, or is, and I think a lot of people may have been, “Oh, well, he always plays villains.” Well, he plays the villain in American movies, but he’s actually the George Clooney of Denmark [laughs].
At the very beginning of the season, Mads comes up and he says, “I think Hannibal should be much more active and I’m really good at fight scenes, so if you write one, I will nail it.” And I was like, “Okay, great, we’ll write one.” And he did a fight sequence – all of the stunt choreographers were like, “Oh, my God, this guy is better than anyone that we’ve ever worked with like this.” His experience as a dancer really helps. He has such control of his instrument and his body, so he really is somebody that you want to see in an action sequence.
Mads Mikkelsen’s approach to the character was not to play him as Anthony Hopkins did, but here he is, this fallen angel who is capable of horrific things, but yet has an awe for humanity and an appreciation of the [human] condition. And that felt like it was such a fascinating approach to the character. And when I see the episodes again, I look at him now not as Hannibal Lecter, but as this guy [who] has that really distant look in his eyes, that infinity of thought, that goes beyond a mortal man. It’s such a smart, interesting, fresh approach to this character that Mads has taken, not that we have altered course to accommodate it, but had it climb aboard and we were all set off to the same destination.
[Hannibal’s] arrogance is not sort of outward – there’s no dismissing of fellow man, no sense of offense or, “You have offended me, good sir.” With Hannibal, he’s not so much offended as he is kind of observational, and there are moments of his micro-expressions that [unint.] a big scene. I love the look after he snaps his patient’s [Franklin, played by Dan Fogler] neck when he’s confronted by [fellow serial killer] Budge [played by Demore Barnes] and drops [Franklin] like a bag of rocks, and just looks back at [Budge] with this innocent kind of, “Well, what’s next? What shall we do now?” It’s so delightful, because it wasn’t like, “I just killed a man because he had it coming because he was annoying,” it was like, “Well, that happened, and now I’m curious what happens next.”
AX: Before Hannibal kills Franklin, he tells Franklin he should leave. Is he sincere in wanting to let him go?
AX: So it’s, “If you don’t go now, I have to get rid of you”?
FULLER: Right. What I love about Hannibal is that he’s a good doctor for his patients and he wants to help them, and even though Franklin is a very annoying character and is a comic foil for Hannibal in some ways, I do think that Hannibal actually cares about Franklin and sees the flaws in his humanity and finds him endearing in some way. And there are people who see that and think, “Oh, that guy was dead from the moment we saw him,” and I’m like, “Well, this version of Hannibal would consider that rude,” because Franklin hasn’t done anything terrible in terms of his humanity. He’s clearly a lost and lonely man, and I think Hannibal has empathy for that. And when [he and Budge] are at the dinner table, Budge says, “I want to kill Franklin,” and Hannibal says, “Don’t kill Franklin.” It’s like, “Why?” With Franklin, he was just eager and lonely, so I don’t think he necessarily falls onto Hannibal’s plate [laughs], in Hannibal’s thinking. So I think right up until the moment that he snaps Franklin’s neck, he was hoping that Franklin would walk away. But [makes philosophical shrugging sound], eh.

Rihanna must have opened her ‘umbrella’ while using Instagram on June 13 because she was throwing some serious shade! RiRi dissed Beyonce as she posted a new pic on the social networking app.
Rihanna posted a picture of a hefty man wearing a speedo to her Instagram account on June 13. While it seems innocent, Beyonce’s name was printed on the back of the speedo. Still confused? Let us explain.
Rihanna wrote, “Boys love….” under the photo, making reference to her alleged ex-lover Drake’s song “Girls Love Beyonce.”
Apparently, Rihanna is not happy that Drake released a song that basically tells Beyonce that she’s desired by everyone, MediaTakeOut suggests.
Furthermore, this isn’t the first time that RiRi’s dissed Queen Bey
Rihanna took a dig at Beyonce over Memorial Day Weekend by liking a picture on Instagram that essentially criticized B’s entire image of self-proclaimed royalty.
RiRi clicked “like” on the following picture-quote by Garbage singer Shirley Manson:
“A lot of celebrities just want money, fame, power, fancy cars, houses all over the world and have people bow down to them. To me, that’s frightful behavior.”
Many fans debated whether or not the quote was actually a dig at Beyoncé, but it seems that RiRi is not a fan of the “Grown Woman” singer.
What do YOU think, ONTD? Was Rihanna dissing Beyonce?

TMZ has obtained EXPLOSIVE VIDEO of 2 Chainz and his crew being robbed at gunpoint in San Francisco this weekend ... and the footage shows the chaotic moments as the rapper and his crew desperately ran for their lives.
2 Chainz and his entourage were casually walking down the street Sunday afternoon when at least 2 men approached the crew and pointed guns at them ... one in a white shirt, the other in a black hoodie.
2 Chainz and his crew immediately scattered -- frantically trying to sprint down the street while the gunmen chased after them.
One of the gunmen seemed to be having fun during the incident ... and gleefully skipped after the rapper while 2 Chainz tried to get away.
During the chase, 2 Chainz stumbles and falls ... and one of the gunmen pounces ... hovering over the rapper with his gun drawn.
According to police, the bad guys jacked 2 Chainz for his cell phone and wallet. Towards the end of the video, you can see a man running back up the street with what appears to be the loot stuffed under his clothes.
Under the category: "Who ya gonna believe, me or your lyin' eyes" ... 2 Chainz later posted a tweet denying he was robbed ... saying, "Rule #1 if a rapper gets robbed people usually post items that has been taken."
As far as the bad guys, so far no arrests have been made.

Her second location in Europe, the new club will come equipped with dance studios, weight rooms, swimming pools, jacuzzi and a lounge with a bar to relax and hang out, and is set to open in September.
Madonna and her trainer, Nicole Winhoffer, also recently released a series of four workout DVDs featuring Winhoffer and incorporating objects such as a bathroom towel and a sturdy chair into the routines. The set, “Addicted to Sweat,” is based on the same high-impact dance workout programs Madonna relies on to achieve her svelte physique.
The Material Girl opened the first Hard Candy gym in Mexico City in 2010 and has since launched clubs in Moscow(Russia), Sydney(Australia), Rome(Italy), St. Petersburg(Russia), and Santiago(Chile).

Where do you workout ONTD?
ONTD lets discuss, I think she brings up some valid points
I guess I consider myself bi-sexual, i socially lean toward guys & sexually lean toward girls (I've never had sex with a guy)
Alot of my friends are LGBTQ & in the skateboard/art/downtown nyc scene & I feel shameful saying I like girls, or even looking at a girl in the street because they'd think I was "putting on an act" or something of the sort
Alot of the straight I have friends don't really care either way but alot of gay people I encounter refuse to believe guys, especially, can be bi-sexual
Billy Ray Cyrus is experiencing an achy break heart all over again.
Nearly three years after the country singer filed divorce papers then changed his mind, his wife Tish has decided to end their marriage.
"This is a personal matter and we are working to find a resolution that is in the best interest of our family. We ask that you respect our privacy at this time," she tells PEOPLE in a statement.
In a separate statement to PEOPLE, Billy Ray says, "This is a personal matter and we are doing what is in the best interest of our family. We ask that you respect our privacy at this time."
Tish is requesting primary physical and legal custody of their daughter, Noah, 13, with visitation for Billy Ray, according to the documents filed Thursday in L.A. Superior Court. Tish is also seeking spousal support and wants the singer to cover her attorney's fees. The couple's date of separation is listed as "to be determined."
The pair's 19-year marriage comes to a rocky end after the pair nearly split in 2010 when Billy Ray filed for divorce.
At the time, the couple released a joint statement, saying "We are trying to work through some personal matters. We appreciate your thoughts and prayers."
But five months later, during an interview on The View, Billy Ray announced that he was withdrawing his petition.
"I want to put my family back together," the singer, 51, said on the show.
Tish expressed her excitement about the reconciliation on her official Facebook page.
"Big thanks to all of our family, friends, and fans who have kept us in their thoughts and prayers," she wrote. "Our family weathered a huge storm and I feel we are stronger than we have ever been."
But there have been hints that the couple's bond has weakened in recent months.
When asked about his relationship with Tish on May 29, Billy Ray told PEOPLE, "We've both been very busy in pursuit of different things we have going on. We're taking it one day at a time."
The pair have five children – including singer Miley Cyrus, 20.
maybe the rumors about billy ray liking his daughters a little too much is true
