Here's the official track listing for my christmas album "Wrapped In Red" :) I cannot wait for y'all to hear it! pic.twitter.com/oFxNPGPp4W— Kelly Clarkson (@kelly_clarkson) September 5, 2013
There are 5 original songs on this album. I literally can't wait. This is gonna be amazing.
(All the background noise makes it hard to hear but she talks about Season 4 of Game of Thrones and at the end she talks about how she loved working with Curdled Milk Oppa and Daniel.)
Porcelain Dutch Goddess...oh and her birthday was yesterday!
Miley Cyrus may have no problem with her much-talked about performance at the MTV Video Music Awards on Sunday, Aug. 25, but one very important person in her life does -- fiance Liam Hemsworth. According to a source close to the actor, the pair is "just weeks away from calling it off permanently."
"He is over her and wants to make a clean break," the source tells Us of the Australian hunk. "No more back and forth."
Another insider adds that Hemsworth found Cyrus' performance, in which she rubbed up against Robin Thicke and made crude gestures with a giant foam finger, "mortifying."
Hemsworth, 23, and Cyrus, 20, have been on and off in recent months, and though the young couple reunited on the red carpet on Thursday, Aug. 8, the pair "acted as if they were strangers," a source told Us at the time.
At present, the pair still reside together at Cyrus' home in L.A.'s Toluca Lake, but the pair are more like roommates than lovers, another source notes. "They're not even sleeping in the same room," the source said.
“Wilfred” wrapped up its third season with basically every season finale-cliche possible.
We found out that Ryan’s dad Henry had secretly been spying on Ryan and thought he was insane. So he gave Ryan two options: be institutionalized or come back and work at the law firm. Ryan was still trying to make up his mind when a bizarre accident killed his father. That led Ryan to accept the job, and pretty much sever ties with Wilfred.
So, if you’re keeping track: we had an ultimatum, a death, a new job and a friend breakup. Then, a super bizarre cliffhanger. Ryan found a letter in his dad’s office, which led him to discover ... a statue of a man in a dog suit.
What the what?
IGN called that a “head-scratcher.” “This obviously raises a number of questions, not the least of which being, is it actually a statue of a man in a dog suit, or does it just appear that way to Ryan? Also, did Henry know more about Wilfred than he was letting on? ... Obviously, there's a lot to digest here, and hopefully some of these questions will eventually come to light.”
TV Fanatic was left just as confused. “WHAT ON EARTH IS THAT THING? WHO PUT IT THERE? WHY IS IT THERE? WHAT DOES THE SYMBOL HAVE TO DO WITH ANYTHING? ... I've said it before. When we learn what the deal is with Wilfred, Wilfred will cease to be a show, so I understand that some of these frustrations are hypocritical.”
Does anyone else watch this underrated show? I hate how it always ends on a crazy cliffhanger and it has yet to be picked up for a season 4! Jason Gann and Elijah Wood are excellent tho. Any theories!?

Not many people can say they have a van that looks exactly like The Mystery Machine from Scooby Doo, but One Direction sure can! Yianni Charalambous - a ‘car supplier-customizer to the stars’ and his Fast, Furious & Funny crew gave Zayn Malik and Louis Tomlinson exactly what they wanted and they knew the rest of the guys would be jealous!
The van has everything they could ever ask for; lasers, comic books on the ceiling, every gaming system imaginable, and the loudest speakers ever.
There have been several platinum blonde singers in popular music: Madonna, Gwen Stefani and Lady Gaga, to name a few. But one woman started it all: Debbie Harry. Her band, Blondie, which is appearing at Stubb’s Bar-B-Q this month, was one of the most influential new wave groups to emerge in the late ’70s with hits like “Call Me” and “Heart of Glass.” With the band’s 40th anniversary coming up in 2014, the group announced it was putting out its 10th album, Ghosts of Download, later this year. At 68 years old, Harry still feels like a rock ‘n’ roll rebel.
What can you tell us about your new album?
We wanted to make a slightly more dance-oriented collection. The Blondie albums traditionally have a wide frame of reference, different styles of music we try to incorporate. On this record we did a lot more collaborating with outside people. It’s kind of textured and interesting in a different way for us.
How do you feel about new female artists who are inspired by you?
I’m sure that they’re lots of girls out there that I’m not aware of. I think that we all build on what we see and what we hear around us. You choose the things that you like and the things that are more instinctive for you. I think Gaga has probably been more influenced by Madonna than me, but then Madonna has said that she was influenced by me. It really is a layering and a building process.
What keeps you inspired to make new music?
I just don’t like living in the past. I really am curious, I guess. I feel comfortable hearing things that I love, but I like being turned on to something new. It’s exciting to me. I don’t always want to be in my comfort zone.
What do you like to do when you visit Austin?
We always try and see the bats come out from under the bridge. I like walking around going to all the vintage stores. I used to play at the Armadillo, and that was always outstanding. I think one of my favorite memories about Austin was the first time I saw Bob Marley and his whole entourage perform in Austin. Everyone was so into Marley and he put on a great show. It was really a long time ago, like in the ’70s.
Alicia Vikander brings the wow factor to the red carpet at the premiere of The Fifth Estate during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival held at Roy Thompson Hall on Thursday night (September 5) in Toronto, Canada.
The 23-year-old actress, in Erdem, joined her cast mates Dan Stevens and Benedict Cumberbatch for photos ahead of the screening.
The Fifth Estate summary: A dramatic thriller based on real events, the flick reveals the quest to expose the deceptions and corruptions of power that turned an Internet upstart into the 21st century’s most fiercely debated organization.
The film will hit theaters on October 18th.
Suspend the betting, close the books, and notify the engraver: I've just seen what will surely be this year's Best Picture winner, and it's 12 Years a Slave. There's no question in my mind that this will be our ultimate awards season victor, and the fact that there's still any room for debate at all means that Oscar bloggers were high on more than mountain air last week at the Telluride Film Festival, where the film first sneaked before tonight's official Toronto Film Festival premiere. In fact, I'll go one further … no, two further: Not only will 12 Years triumph in the Best Picture category, but I'd put my money on a historic Best Director win for Steve McQueen, and I'd mark Chiwetel Ejiofor as the frontrunner for Best Actor. Like, what's gonna beat this movie? Freakin' Monuments Men?
To bring you up to speed — though if you're unfamiliar with 12 Years a Slave, that won't last long — the fact-based film stars Ejiofor as Solomon Northup, a free violinist living in 1841 New York who is drugged by two shady employers (one of whom, randomly, is Saturday Night Live's Taran Killam), then kidnapped from his family, transported to Louisiana, and sold into slavery. Renamed Platt, the badly beaten Northup struggles to sublimate his personality in order to survive, a task that is already dehumanizing but becomes downright untenable when he is sold to the sadistic plantation owner Edwin Epps (played by Michael Fassbender, who previously starred for McQueen in Hunger and Shame).
I'll leave the eventual review of 12 Years a Slave to my colleague David Edelstein; all I can tell you about is the audience reaction, plus my gut instincts. On the first count, the movie was simply shattering. It wasn't just that people broke down crying throughout — though plenty in my audience did — it's that during the closing credits, when I finally found it in me to stand and turn around, I looked back at faces that were shell-shocked to the core. One writer friend of mine was inconsolable, speechless; I took him to get a drink, and for a while at the bar, we just sat and said nothing. At a film festival, you're often expected to move on to the next screening or assignment, but this movie had knocked us flat, and two people normally quick with words not only couldn't find them, but didn't need to. Later, I had that same, silent "holy shit" moment with several other colleagues who'd seen the movie; when my roommate came home from her 12 Years screening as I was writing this article, she said simply, "There it is, we're done. Game over."
I expect the Academy will agree with her. There are still many movies yet to screen here at Toronto — August: Osage County, based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning play, could be a contender — and Oscar blogger Jeff Wells told me he thinks that David O. Russell is due for an Academy Award and that the forthcoming American Hustle could be his ticket. But could even the best versions of those movies feel seminal the same way 12 Years a Slave immediately does? There hasn't been a filmed project that engages this galvanically with the subject of slavery since the television miniseries Roots; yes, we got Django Unchained last year, but compared to the hard truths of 12 Years, that jape-filled Best Picture nominee is from another dimension. It helps, too, that the movie is an across-the-board formal triumph. McQueen makes not a single misstep with the camera, many of the actors are turning in career-best work (or, in the case of surefire Supporting Actress nominee Lupita Nyong'o as a sympathetic fellow slave, building a career on the spot), and behind-the-scenes contributions from writer John Ridley and compose Hans Zimmer are simply sterling.
Should another film come along that's capable of equalling 12 Years a Slave, I'd be happy for my awards predictions to be proven wrong, but let's get real: That isn't going to happen. It's the capstone to a remarkable year for black cinema that also includes success stories Fruitvale Station and The Butler, and it could reign supreme in a night destined to make Oscar history, especially if McQueen becomes the first black filmmaker to take home Best Director. As I sat in the bar with that shattered writer tonight and we struggled to speak, I said, "A century from now, when they put together a montage about the history of movies? They'll put the film we just saw in the first ten seconds of that montage." He didn't even question it; he just nodded, a lump rising in his throat. Normally, I'd feel like I was sticking my neck out to engage in that sort of hyperbole, but this is as easy a call as I've ever made. Beat that, kids.
Jennifer Lopez has landed in Jason Blum’s new micro-budget thriller, “The Boy Next Door,” that the “Paranormal Activity” producer will make under his first-look deal at Universal.
Lopez will star as a newly separated mother who begins an affair with a new teenage neighbor who befriends her son. Trouble ensues, however, when she tries to abruptly end the relationship.
“xXx” and “The Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor” director Rob Cohen is in talks to direct the film from a script by Barbara Curry.
“Next Door” begins shooting in the fall as Lopez’s other high-profile gig, a judging stint on “American Idol,” gears up for its January start.
Blum, who’s known for making films like “The Purge” and his “Paranormal Activity” franchise on a shoestring budget, will produce “Next Door” for between $3 million and $4 million, according to a source close to the project.
Blum has several projects set for release next year, including “Paranormal Activity 5″ and “Stretch.” His next thriller, “Insidious: Chapter 2,” hits theaters next week on Sept. 13. Lopez was last seen in “Parker” co-starring Jason Statham.
Blum will produce with Smart Entertainment’s John Jacobs, along with Elaine Goldsmith-Thomas from Lopez’s production shingle Nuyorican Prods. and Benny Medina. Zac Unterman is serving as an executive producer, while Eric Bromberg and Jessie Israel brought the project to Jacobs.
Lopez is repped by CAA. Cohen is repped by WME.

Simon Cowell has discussed Britney Spears's exit from The X Factor USA.
The singer announced her departure from the competition after one season earlier this year.
During Cowell's appearance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Ellen asked him: "How did that happen initially? Why did you go this will be right for the show?"
Cowell responded: "I think if I'm being honest with you, Ellen, there was a time I think everyone was trying to up themselves in terms of who could find the biggest known star to be on a panel.
"And in terms of a pop singer? Jennifer Lopez and the other one on The Voice... I can't remember. Blondie. Christina. And we said, 'We'll take Britney'. She was fine, but I think she found it very uncomfortable."
"She wasn't comfortable being negative, she didn't like it when the contestants spoke back to her, so she was just uncomfortable. I liked her. So we decided to change it this year."
Simon is so pressed.
Brad Pitt suits up while attending the premiere of his latest flick 12 Years A Slave during the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival held at Princess of Wales Theatre on Friday (September 6) in Toronto, Canada.
Earlier in the day, the 49-year-old actor’s fiancee Angelina Jolie were spotted landing with their kids in Sydney, Australia.
In addition to TIFF, 12 Years A Slave is scheduled to screen at the New York Film Festival and New Orleans Film Festival next month!
damn africa, what happened?
Like bacon, Zeljko Ivanek makes everything better — and the next show to benefit from his presence is White Collar.
TVLine has learned exclusively that the Damages Emmy winner will guest-star on the USA Network drama as Brett Forsythe, a businessman who specializes in hostile corporate takeovers and is an avid collector of valuable artifacts from natural history.
Forsythe lands in the FBI’s crosshairs when he is suspected of orchestrated a “dino-mite” heist — that is, the theft of a Tyrannosaurus Rex fossil and its egg, which together are worth millions.
Guesting in the same episode is Outsourced alum Rebecca Hazlewood as Dr. Reva Khatri, a curator at the targeted natural history museum. A passionate paleontologist, Dr. Khatri believes the true value of dinosaur fossils comes from sharing them with the world.

Grand Theft Auto movie pitches from several Hollywood studios have been rejected in the past.
Series creator Dan House revealed that the game has never been adapted for cinema because the money on offer has never been worth the risk and the level of creative freedom would be restricted.
"We've been offered, many times, and it's never appealed. The money's never been close to be worth risking one's crown jewels," he told The Guardian.
"Our small dabblings with Hollywood have always left us running back to games. The freedom we have to do what we want creatively is of enormous value. The second you go near Hollywood, people seem willing, or have been forced, to lose a lot of that control.
"That sort of amorphous 'that won't test well' attitude is exactly how we don't work. We've always tried to think of stuff that's innovative and new, and to go into a world where that's not encouraged would be horrible."
Good Morning America announced that Britney Spears will be performing on the show on Sept. 17. Britney Spears. Performing. On live TV. All together now: AHH! IT'S BRITNEY, BITCH
If you're a member of the Britney Army, we don't need to tell you that Sept. 17 also happens to be the same day that the countdown on BritneySpears.com runs out. Which has to mean we are getting new music in 11 days, right?!
1. Club bangers like on Blackout.
Arguably Britney's most iconic album, musically speaking.
2. But more personal songs, too.
Luckily for us, Britney has said that it's going to be her "most personal album ever :)" and an album for her "diehard fans." (That'd be us.)
will.i.am said he met with Britney for months before they started recording, "I said, 'Let's talk about what you're excited about. Let's talk about things you've done in you career, what you're happy about. Let's talk about spending time with your kids, let's talk about your breakup. Let's talk about how now you're single, how independent you might feel.'" And that's what's going into this album.
3. More music videos like "Toxic."
Or really any of the iconic videos from the In The Zone era.
4. Britney-era dancing.
We know she's still got it in her, hand dancing be damned!
5. Something new.
Britney is teaming with
will.i.am on this album, but is bringing in a slew of other producers and songwriters too, including Sia ("The song is both beautiful and heartbreaking. Evokes SO much emotion every time I hear it. One of the most beautiful songs I have recorded in a LONG time."), Emeli Sande, William Orbit, Naughty Boy and Charli XCX. She will also reteam with Danja, who provided some of the best tracks off Blackout. We want fresh new beats, stuff we've never heard from her before.
Mostly, we just want to feel like Britney wants to be working, recording, performing, promoting, touring, etc. We want to see her joking and having fun and taking control over the business of Britney Spears.
If we get all that, we'll be like:

Her Downton Abbey alter-ego is forever facing the wrath of her sharp-witted and acid-tongued grandmother over her lifestyle choices.
But it would seem even the judgmental Dowager Countess would approve of Michelle Dockery's new boyfriend, as the couple cut a sophisticated pair while out and about in New York City on Friday afternoon.
Looking as though she had taken a few sartorial tips from her stylish screen character, Lady Mary Crawley, the 31-year-old actress looked the epitome of ladylike elegance as she headed out in the Big Apple with her new man, John Dineen.
Michelle and John were first pictured together last week, as they strolled around Venice exchanging romantic kisses.
The cute couple were introduced by Michelle's Downton Abbey co-star Allen Leech, who plays chauffeur Tom Branson in the ITV drama, and are already said to be smitten with each other.
"Hello tiny human"
Dineen, an Irish-born senior director with FTI Consulting, lives near the actress in Clerkenwell, Central London, and their romance is already going from strength-to-strength.
A friend of Mr Dineen told the Mail: 'John is also from Ireland and went to University in both Cork and Dublin before coming to London. He is very private and softly spoken but he has really been taken by Michelle. Allen is an old friend and appears to have played Cupid.'
Oh and then they went to a tennis game or something. bla bla bla
Dumb dumb dumb
Surprise!John Lithgow. So ~intense.
They may have only got engaged a matter of weeks ago, but it doesn't look like Perrie Edwards will have to wait too long before she ties the knot with Zayn Malik.
The pop heartthrob and the Little Mix singer are said to be planning to wed in the next couple of months, as they are 'dreading' spending long periods of time apart when Zayn tours Australia alongside his One Direction bandmates Harry Styles, Niall Horan, Liam Payne and Louis Tomlinson.
A source told The Sun newspaper:'Ideally, they want to be married for Christmas. They're dreading the long separation when the band go to Australia and New Zealand early next year.
'Zayn flew back regularly when they were in the States but won't be able to do it as often from there. Perrie is planning to visit but they're going to be spending a long time apart, which they think will be eased if they tie the knot.'
The boyband hunk popped the question last month, just days before the London premiere of One Direction's movie, This Is Us.
But despite their relatively short engagement, the adorable couple - both 20 - are already said to be discussing potential venues in exotic destinations
The insider added:'They'd originally decided they wanted to fit in a wedding between October and May, but they're so excited, they want to do it sooner rather than later.
'Zayn is talking about where they could get wed. It's looking like it will be on a beach somewhere exotic and they'll fly everyone out there.'
Zayn confirmed his engagement to Perrie late last month, telling Capital FM: 'It's cool, it's really cool, we're really happy.'
