Lamar Odom Taxis Around After DUI Bust
Lamar Odom was seen for the first time since his DUI arrest (barely) ... getting around the only way he can now ... IN A TAXI.
TMZ broke the story ... Lamar was popped for a DUI in L.A. early Friday morning after cops believed he was driving under the influence of drugs and alcohol. Lamar refused all chemical tests and as a result his driver's license was suspended for year.
As for where he was headed ... the agency who took the photos claims they were snapped outside the gated community where Khloe and Lamar's house is. But frankly, it's hard to tell.
Update - 1:00 PM PST -- Khloe was just photographed driving into the gated community moments after Lamar.
You can see Khloe's got a HUGE zit on her right chin which she hid in her Instagram picture earlier this week.
Lamar Odom's Blockbuster Weekend
Lamar Odom can't be that drugged out ... he was able to find the last Blockbuster video store in LA.
Lamar went deep into the heart of the San Fernando Valley today -- to Reseda -- to pick up some DVDs for his Labor Day enjoyment.
We recommend "Blow" or the entire Charlie Sheen collection.
Looking like they are still trying to work things out

K. Michelle and Tamar Braxton have been directly and indirectly firing shots at each other in the media and on social media sites, but K. Michelle still plans to support her music.The “V.S.O.P.” singer took to her Instagram account on Saturday night to share her excitement about the albums that will be dropping on this coming Tuesday which includes Jaheim, Raheem DeVaughn, John Legend, and Tamar Braxton.
Tuesday is going to be a great day for R&B. For years now we’ve been left with alot of gimmick music. All differences aside REAL MUSIC is coming back, and I’m blessed to be apart of it! I’m buying ALL for of these albums. Yes, even Tamar’s.
The ladies may not see eye to eye, but as far as K. Michelle is concerned…they’re all in the same music gang. What a mature gesture on K. Michelle’s part. I’m sure Tamar left her album on the shelf. Maybe the ladies can move past their differences and be cordial. They both have larger than life personalities. I believe that’s the very reason why they stay bumping heads.
'The Right One' Music Video Premieres
Justin Timberlake has denied claiming that *NSYNC are a better group than One Direction.
The 'Mirrors' singer said that the quotes were taken out of context in a message posted earlier today (September 1).
He pointed out that the question was about which band would win in a pie-eating contest.
He tweeted: "I thought the question was about a pie eating contest. My bad. #newsworthy"
He was quoted by The Breakfast Club as saying: "I have not seen them on stage, but I'd be willing to say that we're better than them.
"But I don't feel like I'm laying down any gauntlet. I've seen them a couple times and I like those guys. It's interesting to see this whole wave of that come back around."

Kick-ass heroines in "The Hunger Games" and "Divergent" prove that women are taking over the male-dominated genre
The Guardian’s Damien Walter recently discusses the problem in his column. He points out that of the 29 people who have won the Science Fiction and Fantasy Writers of America’s lifetime achievement award, only four have been women. However, it’s important to note is that three of the female winners received the award in the past decade. The number of female sci-fi writers has more than tripled since 1948, and a number of Goodreads’ 2012 best sci-fi novels were penned by women.
Suzanne Collins’ “The Hunger Games” series shows how successful science fiction novels written by women can also elevate women in film; the series was not only written by a woman, but features a strong female lead. While we all know it’s important to recognize the role of female writers, it’s equally important for there to be significant and well-written female characters in science fiction books, films, and television shows. Collins’ Katniss Everdeen made it apparent that powerful female protagonists in science fiction can be a commercial hit, thus encouraging the promotion of female characters in the future. A good example of this is Veronica Roth’s “Divergent,” a dystopian science-fiction novel set in futuristic Chicago that was quickly picked up by Summit Entertainment (the series’ first book was published only two years ago). The series’ protagonist is a young woman named Tris Prior. Personality-wise, Roth’s lead is much more stereotypically feminine than Collins’ Katniss, but she still takes an influential position in her world.
Female science fiction characters aren’t just gaining momentum and mainstream acceptance. They’ve also become more varied, and are less often reduced to the role of eye candy. Although Jolie’s Lara Croft was influential (just ask the nearly 50% of women who play video games) and popularized strong female action leads, it’s problematic to consider Jolie the most influential woman in sci-fi, because she so often serves as a form of eye candy. As a woman with a lifelong interest in sci-fi, I find actresses like Rachel Nichols to be more inspiring. In the Canadian-made series Continuum, Nichols plays Kiera Cameron, a lead character that isn’t reduced to her physical assets. Women in the genre — especially in video games — are often provocatively dressed, one-dimensional, and only intended to augment the role of the male lead. In contrast, Continuum’s Cameron is a stand-alone character who leads the series, and does so dressed from head-to-toe in practical, though not unattractive, gear. She’s intelligent and a little stoic, and very much a woman (she even has a child). While Cameron’s is only one example of a positive female role in sci-fi, the fact that this show is well reviewed, well made, and smart demonstrates how much potential there is for future female roles.
It’s true that women need more representation in science fiction, but it’s not quantity we’re after. What we all want, and should strive for, is better quality in the way women are included. Shelley’s contribution to the genre has been immense, but women are still, most certainly, changing things in sci-fi. As appreciators and consumers of science fiction, it’s up to us to affirm our need and desire for a less male-dominated pool of talent.

Agree/disagree on this piece? Also, do you like to see more well-written female-centric sci-fi books/films/TV shows, ONTD?
Joan Rivers fired the opening shot at Lindsay Lohan, but says Michael Lohan crossed the line when he responded by calling Joan an addict ... to plastic surgery ... and she's ready to sue him for it.
TMZ spoke to Joan after MiLo ripped the "Fashion Police" host for making drug jokes about Lindsay. Michael claimed Joan is hooked on needles (i.e. botox) and cutting/self-mutilation (i.e. plastic surgery).
Now, Joan has a double-barreled response to Michael. First, attacking him for even defending Lindsay -- saying, "It's a little late to become a concerned parent."
Then also throwing down a legal threat, adding ... "As for 'cutting' it is totally not true and if he ever says this again, I will sue."
Your move, Michael.
EXCLUSIVE: Olga Kurylenko is in talks to join Mandarin Cinéma and Europacorp’s Yves Saint Laurent’s biopic, set to begin shooting in October.
The Ukrainian actress was most recently seen in Tom Cruise sci-fi feature Oblivion and is also known for roles in Terrence Malick’s To The Wonder and James Bond film Quantum of Solace.
Films Distribution handles international sales of Saint Laurent and will pre-sell at the Toronto International Film Festival.
Gaspard Ulliel will play iconic fashion designer Laurent during the years 1965 to 1976. Lisa Ulliel and Robinson Stevenin have also joined the cast.
Bertrand Bonello directs from a screenplay by Thomas Bidegain and Eric and Nicolas Altmayer are producing. Isabelle Grellat serves as executive producer.
Production on the €15m feature is scheduled to run for 10 weeks in Paris and Marrakesh. The cast includes Jérémie Renier and Léa Seydou.
A rival project, titled Yves Saint Laurent, is also in the pipline, directed by Jalil Lespert, for which US rights been snapped up by The Weinstein Company.
Ed Sheeran seems to be turning into quite the ladies man with rumours he's getting cosy with the gorgeous Ellie Goulding, plus the never-ending speculation that he's more than just friends with his touring partner Taylor Swift.
According to Ed's mates Rizzle Kicks though, nothing has ever happened between the A Team crooner and Miss Swift.
We asked the pair if Ed and Taylor have anything going on, in light of all those rumours, but the boys were quick to shoot down the rumours with: "they definitely don't".
Whilst Ed might not be romancing Taylor, Jordan and Harley have dispelled the singer's good boy image by telling us that Mr Sheeran is an outrageous drunk!
"One hundred percent, he's so funny. He's f**ing hilarious. He's loud, larey, rap battles with anything, anyone."
Harley added: "He sometimes loses the idea of what personal space is as well, he'll be right up in your face."
But they added that Ed stays back when it comes the the ladies, insisting that"he's not a flirty person in general." That approach seems to work to his advantage though:
"He's a nice guy. Sometimes women are apprehensive if men approach them without really saying anything but Ed is hardly threatening is he. He's just a nice ginger chappy who plays lovely love songs on an acoustic guitar. You're not gonna be like 'f**k off mate.'"
Leaving the club in West Hollywood Aug 29 with groupie:
true love never dies
The business of White Pine Bay, Oregon just got a little more intriguing.
While it’s not yet clear how exactly Robertson’s character will play into the world of Norma and Norman Bates, one thing is certain: Jodi’s a natural born leader who gets what she wants — personally and professionally — and she’s not afraid to use her arsenal of brains, charm and creativity to make things happen.
Alias alum Michael Vartan recently joined the Season 2 cast as a new romantic interest for Norma (played by Emmy nominee Vera Farmiga). Other new characters will include Christine, a local socialite in her late 30s who becomes Norma’s first real friend; and Caleb, Norma’s estranged fortysomething brother who comes to town to coax his little sis into investing in a presumably shady business venture.
Production on Bates‘ 10-episode second season got underway late last month; the show returns in 2014.
Sorry for posting two-week-old news but it was new to me, and I didn't see it posted here before.
Here for it. Let us pray Beyonce is featured
If you needed any more evidence we live in the age of the TED Talk, it seems even celebrities aspire to be popular science writers.
According to the Hollywood Reporter, comedian Aziz Ansari–i.e., Tom Haverford on Parks and Recreation–has signed a deal with Penguin Press to write a book (his first, due September 2015) about how technology has disrupted singlehood. We’re not just talking riffing or Bossypants-style essays, either. Apparently Mr. Ansari plans to “conduct original research” and with “noted academics.”
Publisher’s Weekly says he got $3.5 million for this idea.
The Hollywood Reporter has the goods from Penguin, the publisher, who says the book:
“will provide an investigation into what Ansari argues is an entirely new era for singles, in which the basic issues facing a single person — whom we meet, how we meet them, and what happens next — have been radically altered by new technologies.”
Think online dating and so, so much more: “You know when you text someone you’re romantically interested in and you don’t hear anything back and then you see them post a photo of a pizza on Instagram?” Mr. Ansari explained further in a statement. “That’s exactly what I want this book to deal with.” But you know–in an intellectually rigorous way.
Just hire a talented co-author and don’t take any advice from fallen pop-sci wunderkind Jonah Lehrer and you should be fine, Aziz.
sounds interesting imo, I'll read it. online dating post? tell your stories!
Here are some new Demi Lovato taken for Self Magazine Outtakes! Demi looks soo beautiful!!
The dystopian thriller "Divergent" is poised to become the next teen Hollywood blockbuster, but will it succeed?
Mods, I fixed the photo.
Waffles. Shitty Watercolour is a U.K.-based artist who has become famous for his paintings of sloths which he then gives away. His bio reads: I am an 18 year old from the United Kingdom who publishes shitty watercolours on the internet (mainly on reddit). The paintings I have done on reddit are not for sale, but you can ask about commissions. All of my supplies are Winsor and Newton, and I am not Quentin Blake.

it's SHITTY watercolour. SHITTY
Kanye West is spending Labor Day weekend in Kazakhstan, because Kazakhstan President Nursultan Nazarbayev plundered billions of dollars in oil revenues from his country and hid the money in offshore bank accounts so that one day he could pay Kanye West to come and play at his grandson’s wedding. None of the guests bothered to watch, though.
Instead, they used it as an opportunity to snap some pics with the rapper… while he was performing.
Two-hour premiere on Thursday, September 25 at 9:00PM.
Raúl Esparza (FUCK YEAH <3):
The promos made my stomach turn, tbh. Pablo Schreiber said that he hugged Mariska after every scene, but still...
