The end of tonight's episode - holy cow. :( I guess it's pretty obvious who they're going to out as the killer now?
Ever since she first signed up for Instagram, Madonna has been tantalizingly teasing photos from a mysterious collaboration with photographer Steven Klein, dubbed “#secretproject” — when she’s not posting Purim selfies, that is.
The hints have been coming for months now (check out the original What’s going on?” post), including the premiere of a dark, violent trailer at the MDNA Tour premiere party in June, but details are still a little shaky: Is it a political statement, or an advertisement for Brahim‘s new clothing line? (Please let it not be that.)
Tonight, a new piece of the puzzle arrived – in the form of the #unapologetic Illuminati princess herself, Rihanna.
The above photo just surfaced tonight, featuring the “Pour It Up” princess decked out as Blond Ambition-era Madonna. (RiRi’s standom for M has been well-documented throughout the years, including her performance of “Vogue” at Fashion Rocks 2008.)
RiRi’s involvement in #secretproject isn’t actually news: Late last year, Steven Klein was tweeting Rihanna directly about the #secretproject. Later on, a photo of something marked “From Madonna to Rihanna: 2 of 3″ surfaced.
This is (potentially) confirmation that Rihanna really is involved — and it’s already everything. But what does it all mean?
All we have is an official trailer that Madonna released in June
It's obv that Quinn is going to think Dexter is trying to help Zack because Matthews put him up to it. What did you guys think of tonight's episode? I don't think A.J. is the person that was sending brains to Vogel. Also, I wonder how they'll work Hannah into all this?!?!
Anderson Cooper's Biggest Fan Is A White Supremacist/X-Men Devotee
CNN’s Anderson Cooper has a stalker — a gaunt, scraggly-haired, 40-year-old Queens man who has the steely-eyed anchor stud fearing for his life.
Since 2008, Alex Hausner — described as a gay, Jewish white supremacist — has allegedly made unwelcome phone calls plus four attempts to see Cooper, last month trying to kick down the red, lacquered door to the posh, four-story West Village converted firehouse that Cooper shares with his hunky, bar-owner boyfriend.
“I swear to f--king God, don’t insult me,” a security camera caught Hausner shouting as he kicked, according to court papers.“I’m going to f--k you up!”
In his three decades as a newsman, Cooper has ducked Israeli rockets in Gaza and braved radioactive clouds in Japan.
But it’s Hausner — a Far Rockaway, Queens, psychiatric patient — who now has him rattled, court papers say.
“I can prove from my sources that his boyfriend has sent people after me,” a fidgety Hausner, sitting in Manhattan Criminal Court last night before his arraignment, said of Cooper.
The boyfriend, Benjamin Maisani, who owns an East Village gay bar, is also a victim, prosecutors say.
“He’s a thug and a mongrel,” Hausner seethed to a Post reporter of Maisani.
“They said I was not to be there — that’s not true,” Hausner ranted.
Hausner, who wore ripped jeans and a black T-shirt featuring the X-Men was ordered held in lieu of $75,000 bail on felony first-degree menacing, and misdemeanor harassment and stalking.
“He was told on numerous occasions not to call” Cooper, Assistant DA Rachel Ehrhardt said in court.
On June 22, Hausner “showed up at Anderson Cooper’s house, and he was told that he did not have permission to be at that location,” the prosecutor said.
Hausner has prior felony and misdemeanor convictions, she said.
“He was a radical — he believed in his [Jewish] religion, and he believed in the one race, the white race,” an ex-neighbor at Hausner’s SRO told The Post last night.
Cooper’s legal representative, Jason Berland, declined comment.
Cooper, who is the son of Gloria Vanderbilt, purchased the 8,000-square-foot, landmark, 1906 firehouse for $4.3 million — complete with brass fireman’s pole — three years ago.

The One Direction boys, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Zayn Malik, Niall Horan and Liam Payne arrived in Seattle last night for the next leg of their Take Me Home tour, so as ever, they’ve been busier than one-armed wallpaper hangers…
However, last night, Niall and the lads took time out to pose for a picture with Pearl Jam singer Eddie Vedder, who brought his family to meet 1D.
An excited Niall tweeted, “Eddie vedder came in today with his family! #legend #pearljam @elliegoulding is deffo jealous !”

Bullying may conjure up images of school kids ganging up on each other on the playground, but adults are guilty of partaking in the nasty practice too – on the Web, in the workplace, and even at restaurants. Luckily, some bystanders aren't looking the other way anymore.
When two New Jersey teens overheard a cashier getting an unfair earful from a customer, they spoke up. And it not only felt good, but tasted good, too.
On Sunday, Kailee Whiting, 19, shared her story on Reddit, writing: "Stood up for an innocent employee at Wendy's who was being bullied by a customer. She gave us free frosties and chicken nuggets." Whiting also posted a photo of the two shakes sitting atop a piece of paper that read, "You guys are AWESOME. (Hope you like vanilla.)"
"I thought it was really sweet of the cashier,” Whiting's girlfriend, 18-year-old Katie Light, told Yahoo! Shine. “It was nice to know that she was happy that we stood up for her. Karma gave us something back."
The two Rowan University students were standing in line waiting for their food at a Wendy’s restaurant in Franklin, New Jersey, when a woman in front of them started yelling at the cashier. There had been a power outage 20 minutes earlier, causing a backup in the kitchen, so things had become a bit hectic behind the counter. According to Light, the customer yelled, "If you weren’t ready to take my order, you shouldn’t have called me up!"
"We were very shocked that an older woman would even be so immature," Light explained.
Whiting, who works in retail and at a diner in Sussex County, New Jersey, could empathize with the cashier; she explained to the displeased woman that working in the food industry is difficult and that the cashier was doing her best. Her words, however, weren’t so well received. The woman shoved her hand in Whiting's face and told her to "shut up and stop talking," according to Light.
"When we got our food, the cashier smiled and said, 'Here’s your chicken nuggets.' She gave us a free 16-piece chicken nuggets even though we didn’t order any. And when we were done, she came out with a tray of two Frosties just as a nice gesture … like, 'Thank you for standing up for me.'"
The couple later found out that the frustrated woman called to inform the manager that the cashier gave away two free Frosties, but the manager reportedly didn't mind.
And standing up to bullying has become a wider movement in recent years, with a much greater outcome than just getting some free fast food. In 2011, 14-year-old Jonah Mowry’s YouTube video describing his despair over being bullied for being gay went viral. It has received nearly 11 million views to date and has caught the attention of celebrities like Lady Gaga and Jordin Sparks. He recently posted a follow-up clip in which he illustrates how much his life has improved thanks to the support he received because of the original video.
That same year, the Weinstein Company came out with an award-winning documentary, "Bully," that exposes teen bullying throughout schools in America. Since its debut, a number of anti-bullying campaigns, projects, and support groups have been created.
And in 2012, Michigan sophomore Whitney Kropp was elected homecoming queen, but her peers made fun of her on Facebook and the elected homecoming king gave up the crown. When a local Michigan resident found out, she created a Facebook page (that has since received more than 90,000 "likes") to support Whitney, spread the story beyond the small town, and launch a fund to send Whitney to the dance.
The lesson here? It never hurts to speak up, and you'll probably feel rewarded, free meal or not.

With back-to-back Oscar-nominated films on his résumé, David O. Russell has cornered the American dream.
Now it's time to hustle.
Following the success of 2010's The Fighter and 2012's Silver Linings Playbook, the director will head back into the heart of awards season with American Hustle (in limited release on Dec. 13, in theaters everywhere Dec. 25), a fictionalized film based on the FBI's Abscam sting operation.
Reunited with members of his Fighter and Silver Linings acting teams, Russell focuses on the intersection of the government and the Mob in the New York area in the late '70 and '80s, applying his textured realism to a world of entrapment, stylish swagger and raw humor.
Christian Bale stars as Irving Rosenfeld, a brilliant Bronx con-man whose specialization in stolen art catches the attention of unhinged FBI agent Richie DiMaso (Bradley Cooper). (Those tight curls are "not a perm, just for the record," says Russell, noting Cooper's character emulates a style popularized by '70s professional baseball players.)
DiMaso forces Irving and his British lover/accomplice Sydney (Amy Adams) into a web of New Jersey power brokers and the Mafia. Jennifer Lawrence is on hand as Irving's loose cannon of a Long Island house wife, Rosalyn, who threatens the entire operation. "Everybody gets to do something we've never seen before," says Russell. "That's exciting to me."
New to Russell's orbit is Jeremy Renner as Carmine Polito, a volatile New Jersey mayor keeping his community afloat in the midst of a recession. "That era was very much like our era now," says Russell. "The economy was not in a good place and people had to struggle to figure out how to reinvent themselves."
The real Abscam scandal ended on the national stage, with a U.S. senator and five congressmen convicted of corruption.
The American Hustle team saw a different side of history in April, bearing witness to the Boston Marathon bombings. "We were shooting in an outlying area that day," recalls Russell, who was told to stay indoors along with the cast as production shut down. "Christian Bale's wife was the first one to get through to him (on set). It was very surreal. It was very upsetting."
Russell is editing American Hustle, continuing what he describes as the year's "intense'' momentum (the film was in camera tests even as he walked Oscar's red carpet). But Russell is confident the effort will pay off. Ever since The Fighter, he says, "I feel very clear about what I want to do."

With their star suspended for the rest of the 2013 season and the team languishing in last place, the Milwaukee Brewers went looking for a way to say 'We're sorry' to their fans.
What they found was undoubtedly the best way to apologize: Free food and drinks.
To be more specific, each fan who spins the Miller Park turnstiles during the month of August will receive a $10 voucher that can be used at the stadium's concession stands. With 12 home dates in August and an average expected attendance of 30,000, that's a roughly $3.6 million hit the Brewers are taking with this "Fans First" promotion— or more than the $3.1 million they would have had to pay Ryan Braun had he not been suspended for 65 games after getting caught up in the Biogenesis scandal.
In taking this action, the Brewers have touched upon an existential truth in the fair state of Wisconsin: Nothing says "you're loved and appreciated" like free bratwurst and beer.
“This has been a challenging season for all of us, but the one thing that has never wavered has been the tremendous support we have received from fans who love the Brewers,” [team owner Mark] Attanasio said. “We wanted to do something meaningful to show our appreciation, and we will strive to provide the best fan experience possible.”
... Vouchers may be combined (meaning that fans attending with friends and family members, or those attending multiple games, can combine the vouchers for larger purchases) and used at any remaining 2013 home game. The vouchers can also be used toward the purchase of game tickets this season.
The Brewers say this is only the first in a series of promotions they'll be doing as their 43-61 squad plays out the string from the basement of the NL Central. It's not surprising, either, as the team has done similar things in the past. The last game of the 2005 season was free to everyone while none other than Braun and reliever John Axford gave away 5,000 free tickets to fans for the finale of the 2012 season.
By consistently showing the fans that their support is valued, even in times of great disappointment, the Brewers are writing the manual on how to attract fans despite playing in the league's smallest market. They've topped 2.75 million fans each of the past six years (including passing the three million mark in three of them) and are on pace to draw over 2.5 million this year despite being on track for a 96-loss season.
That's pretty fucking awesome.
The Good Wife isn't afraid to go headfirst into the "shitstorm."
When CBS' critical darling ended its last season, Alicia (Julianna Margulies) was planning her exit from Lockhart Gardner with fellow associate Cary (Matt Czuchry). Reporters present Monday afternoon at the Television Critics Association press tour session were presented with a first look at Alicia being confronted by the firm's partners about fourth-year associates possibly defecting, not knowing that Alicia was a part of it.
The decision to depict the calm before the storm was intentional on the part of executive producers Robert and Michelle King. "We really want to get the audience whet with this difficulty of betraying your firm," Robert King told reporters.
In fact, the show's bosses provided context to the situation portrayed on the show, which hits its landmark (Robert King hints that it will be a "blowout") 100th episode this season. "We've been interviewing a lot of partners in agencies -- and not just law firms -- about what it's like when they leave and take clients, and it's a shitstorm. What we want is the quiet before the shitstorm," he said.
Margulies said, "I think [Alicia]'s leaving the law firm because she knows if she stays there, in her peripheral vision [there] will always be Will [Josh Charles], and she can't move forward with her commitment to saying yes to being first lady of Illinois as long as she and Will are working together. I think in her heart of hearts, she thinks that's the smart move."
The actress admitted that her "heart sank" when she read the season four finale script, believing that the person who would appear at her door would be her sometime lover Will, and was pleasantly surprised when it was Cary. "It was always going to be going for the professional and intentionally going for the misdirect," Michelle King said of the pivotal season-ending scene.
The Good Wife is known for utilizing real-life headlines and scandals in the political sphere in its episodes and arcs. With the Anthony Weiner "sexting" scandal resurfacing amid his bid for mayor of New York City and the Edward Snowden/NSA situation (Robert King called it "fascinating" and said it provides a framework for the season), Margulies and the Kings admitted that they are the gifts "that keep on giving."
One of the questions that will be explored in regard to Weiner is whether sexual dalliance increases with power, Robert King hinted that one of the show's big themes will be asking whether that is in fact the case, especially with Alicia's husband, Peter (Chris Noth), the newly minted governor of Illinois."Does he find himself tempted?" Robert King asked, saying that new cast memeber Melissa George will play an integral part in that question.
Being in a position of power again will be intriguing for Alicia; glimpses of how she handled her high stature "started seeping in a little bit" last year. "It is incredibly provocative to be in a powerful situation," Margulies said. "She's very aware she's choosing a slippery slope. She isn't quite aware of this eruption that's about to happen because of the war she's causing at Lockhart Gardner."
Though The Good Wife has featured a bevy of key guest players, the Kings affirmed that season five will be more centered on the core characters. "It's more about our team, not about the guest stars," Robert King said, saying that the theme will be a civil war. He later added: "We get to a civil war fairly quickly at the law firm."
Carrie Preston, Gary Cole and America Ferrera will all return in the new season, with George, Juliet Rylance, Ben Rapaport and Jeffrey Tambor joining.
Yessss, so excited about the people they've lined up. Can't wait to see more of Carrie Preston and America Ferrera.
For the recipients it was like finding Willy Wonka’s Golden Ticket – but in reverse. Music fans expressed their outrage after being sent a “nationwide” spam email from James Blunt urging them to listen to his new single.
Twitter was swamped with complaints from Blunt-haters who received an unsolicited message from the "You’re Beautiful" singer in their inbox, titled “I’d like you to be the first to hear my new single.”
Addressed impersonally to “dear friend”, the email contained a link to the song "Bonfire Heart" and Blunt’s declaration that it was a ditty “about love, life, fear and hope…and more than anything, you…and me…”
Mikey Guitar posted a warning Tweet: “If you receive an email with a link to the new James Blunt single, don't click on it. It's a link to the new James Blunt single!”
Another Tweeter wrote: “Let me see if I've got this right. If we want porn we have to opt IN, but if we don't want James Blunt we have to opt OUT?” “Ok, which James Blunt signed me up for this?,” asked another.
Blunt’s spam attack targeted fellow singers including the Scottish musician Nina Nesbitt who did not appear too impressed. “Great marketing from James Blunt’s team I must say. Email the whole of the UK!,” she tweeted.
Some asked if their personal details had been bought up for a marketing operation by Warner Music, Blunt’s record company.
Blunt himself apologised for the inconvenience. “Oops... Just emailed the whole of the UK by mistake! Ha,” he Tweeted.
Warner Music said that due to a“clerical error, the email was accidentally serviced to some users who had subscribed to mailing lists for other Warner Music artists.”
With Blunt trending as a result of the marketing tactic, some Tweeters asked if they were the only people in the UK not to have received an email.
Others reluctantly accepted the email’s contents which confirmed that reports of the tremulous former soldier’s musical retirement were premature.
Sigourney Weaver is in negotiations to join the cast of The Mortal Instruments: City of Ashes, Constantin's sequel to its upcoming supernatural fantasy, The Mortal Instruments: City of Bones.
Much of the cast of the first installment, which opens Aug. 21 and includes Lily Collins, Jamie Campbell Bower, Kevin Zegers, Robert Sheehan, Jemima West and Jonathan Rhys Meyers, is returning -- as is director Harald Zwart.
The project continues the story of a girl (Collins) who discovers she is a demon-slaying Shadowhunter and enters a world filled with warring vampires, werewolves and faeries, while also falling for another Shadowhunter (Bower).
In one of the few new roles, the veteran actress will play the ruthless leader of the Shadowhunters who will stop at nothing to destroy the man who killed her son.
An October start date is being eyed.
A legend in the genre world for her Aliens work, Weaver’s recent appearances include Amy Heckerling's romantic vampire comedy Vamps, Cold Light of Day with Henry Cavill and cult hit Cabin in the Woods.
She is repped by UTA and Jackoway Tyerman.
Hollywood is so thirsty I can't. Just let this shit flop already.
Although all five were present at the press conference yesterday, it was clear to see that all eyes were on the willowy Swinton, who Bong referred to as "an elf".
"I've been waiting to come here with this film since I met Director Bong", said Swinton, remembering the time in Cannes, two years ago, when the two first crossed paths.
Although Swinton said that she met Bong at a time when she vowed to never make a film, "a decision I make after every film", she told Bong that there was one condition to her participation: "I wanted to have fun".
"I always had a fantasy playing a character with a nose like this", she said, pushing up on her nostrils.
Describing her collaboration with Bong as "not more sophisticated than a 6-year-old playing dress up", the 52-year-old British actress said that it was "his person" that drew her to the project.
She suggested that although visibly female, her character Mason is open to interpretation.
"The subordinates call Mason, 'Sir'. Who's to say Mason is female? I'm not saying that".
Upon first seeing Swinton on set in Europe, Song said he had a moment where he stared at her walking toward him and all he could think was, "That is an actor".
Meanwhile, the youngest member Ko Ah-Sung professed that she enjoyed gazing into her co-star - famed for playing Captain America - Chris Evans's"deep" eyes.
And for his part, the American heartthrob said that he loved getting away from Hollywood for a while.
"It was so refreshing to work with artists outside of America. Even if you are talented, unfortunately they don't make it on our radar", said Evans, while emphasizing that he learned a lot from watching actors who approached the craft differently from him.
But when all's said and done, Swinton set the record straight.
"It sounds a little strange to hear them (Korean actors) speak about working with such an international cast. For us, we felt like we were working with the international stars".
And as for what she thought of Bong, she said the he was a "person at the pinnacle of world cinema".
YASSSSSSSSSSSSSS MA'AM! Fierce fashion HBIC androgynous alien goddess kween Tilda proving that basic Hollywood bitches will never reach her perfect sartorial level. And all of you haters always coming at her about the Polanski issue, you can keep trying and failing because this kween will forever remain unbothered by your pressed and unworthy asses. And UNF at my husband Chris Evans getting mobbed by these Koreans with superior taste in celebrities. You wish your faves could ever receive such fanaticism from discerning Asians, ONTD.
Brace yourselves, y'all! "Snowpiercer" will come to fucking melt your face off with pure awesomeness!
