Lorde Tourmate Lo-Fang Was Kind Of Scared Of Her At First
Lo-Fang— a.k.a. Matthew Hemerlein — is about to get the royal treatment. After Lorde chose his track "#88" as one of her favorite of the past year, the 17-year-old singer tapped him for her spring tour. Not bad for a guy who was too shy to say "hi" to the wunderkind not that long ago.
"[She] got a copy of my record from her producer, Joel Little, pretty soon after its completion in early September and they were both into it," Hemerlein told MTV News, explaining how Lorde came to discover a musician whose debut record, Blue Film, has yet to drop. "I love the songs on Pure Heroine and I've definitely driven around L.A. at night listening to their stuff, so was really happy to hear a mutual response."
Before Lorde listed Lo-Fang's "#88" — a dreamy track that's somewhere between King Krule and James Blake (with strings!) — as her #2 song of the year on Huffington Post, though, Hemerlein was a bit scared of the singer.
"I went to her show at The Fonda [in L.A.] and was really impressed, but despite having after-show passes was too shy to say anything," he said. "I don't think she even knows this but maybe she'll find out now."
"I then found out Lorde made '#88' one of her favorite songs of 2013, which was really amazing given the fact that it took me over two years to complete and I had begun writing it while in Cambodia," he added. "So this song had a really strange journey — from being conceived in these jungle temples in Southeast Asia back to a fully controlled American recording studio in L.A. and then onto the playlist of a young and talented artist from New Zealand."
Soon after giving Hemerlein her queenly nod, Lorde attended one of Lo-Fang's shows in L.A. and — over Pho afterwards — the two finally met. And although it was only the musician's second show as Lo-Fang, Lorde chose him to go on tour with her this spring, after his record drops on February 25.

Happy birthday celebrations to my beautiful jade! @jadeameliabadwi I love you so much hope you had the best night! X
ZAYN Malik and Perrie Edwards wedding is set to be the biggest event on the showbiz calendar for 2014.
So far Harry Styles' bandmate has remained tight lipped on his forthcoming romantic ceremony with his Little Mix beauty.
But lucky for us, his mum has spilled the beans on the nuptials and has revealed the pair will tie the knot sooner then we thought.
Trish Malik told the BBC: "They're thinking of the end of next year, although no date has yet been set yet."
With Xmas around the corner, mummy Zayn says the two lovebirds and Perrie's mum will be spending Christmas day with her in Bradford.
She said: "I will cook the dinner," and added "Perrie and her mother will be there and we'll open presents, play games and stuff our faces."
The mum-of-four had also admitted that she would like her future daughter-in-law and son to move closer to home once a bun is in the oven.
"If they have children I wouldn't like to be so far away from them," she said.
Adding: "I would really like to still be part of their lives."
Even though Zayn's music career has skyrocketed over the past couple of years his mama admitted he nearly missed his date with destiny.
"On the morning of the X Factor audition Zayn didn't want to go," she recalled. "He chickened out, saying: 'Can't I just leave it?'."
A One Direction without Zayn isn't even worth thinking about.

Add Amazon to the short list of retailers protesting Beyonce's iTunes exclusive. While Amazon.com is carrying the MP3 version of the album, the online merchant is apparently not stocking the CD version of the album, according to label sources and a check of the site. The album is available, however, via third-party sellers in the Amazon marketplace.
Earlier this week, Target said it would not carry the new Beyonce album, which iTunes got a one week exclusive window to sell the 14-song, 17-video album and did so to the tune of more than 600,000 units in the U.S. for the first three-days of availability.
Moreover, while Amazon is carrying the Beyonce MP3 in its store, it does not appear to be supporting the album with any prime real estate. The only way the album is visible if shoppers search for it and will see that the album is there digitally for $15.99.
While most merchants have chosen to carry the Beyonce album, which streeted today after iTunes’ week-long exclusive window, they aren't happy about the preferential treatment given to Apple. Sources say Sony and Columbia still managed to ship over 500,000 units of the CD by today’s street date.
Meanwhile, in addition to being annoyed at the Beyonce exclusive, Amazon is reportedly still steaming that Sony Music Entertainment handed down an edict that Amazon, or any other retailer for that matter, couldn't pre-sell the Beyonce title. Pre-sales of new titles has proven to be an effective marketing tool and the Sony edict was interpreted as further protecting the iTunes exclusive window.
According to sources, Amazon may be considering further reprisals against Sony Music Entertainment and Columbia down the line, although conversations are said to be still ongoing between the label and the merchant.
Historically, Sony Music Entertainment has been the biggest player in handing out exclusive windows to merchant and is a master at contending with the ill-feelings such a strategy generates from other retailers. Usually, Sony finds a way to placate the other merchants by offering economic inducements in an attempt to offset whatever harm may have come from those merchants losing out on the exclusive title. Columbia and Amazon did not respond to a request for comment at press time.

HAPPY FRIDAY, ONTD! :-) xoxo
With Lamar Odom out of the picture, Khloe Kardashian turned to ANOTHER basketball star for some company during a shopping outing in Bev Hills ... ex-NBA stud Baron Davis.
TMZ Sports shot footage of the two leaving Barneys New York on Thursday ... laughing and smiling together ... and even sharing a hug before getting in separate cars and hitting the road.
Unclear if the two are just shopping pals ... or something more.
We do know this ... Baron grew up in L.A. and has been friends with the Kardashians for years. He's also tight with Kate Hudson (they went to high school together).
There are rumors Khloe is secretly dating Dodgers star Matt Kemp ... but no signs of the MLB star yesterday.
Twitter erupts at the comedian, who spends the rest of the evening apologizing

Steve Martin apologized for a racist joke on Twitter Friday night, then quickly deleted the tweet and continued saying he was sorry.
Martin was bantering with Twitter followers and turning their grammar questions into jokes when he was asked “is this how you spell lasonia?”
His response: “It depends. Are you in an African-American restaurant or at an Italian restaurant.”
Martin apologized and deleted the tweet, but screen shots and angry, disappointed reactions ricocheted around Twitter all evening.
Martin then expressed contrition again, tweeting that “I did apologize. But again, a second later I realized what an offensive thing I’d done.” He answered another tweet that told him “in retrospect, bad joke” with the response “Yeah, I learned that.”

Charlie Sheen is giving voice to the voice-less in a raging Twitter rant addressing “Duck Dynasty” star Phil Robertson, who’s in the middle of a controversy over anti-gay and racial comments made during an interview with GQ magazine.
No stranger to being in the middle of a media firestorm himself, Sheen shows no mercy for Robertson in a very angry missive posted to Twitter on Saturday.
hey Mallard brained
you have offended and hurt so many dear friends of mine,
who DO NOT have the voice or the outreach that I do.
well news flash
I will speak loudly and clearly for ALL of them.
just when your desperately sub evolved ass thought the pressure was off,
you are now in the crosshairs of a MaSheen style media

your statements were and are

the only 'Dynasty' you are attached to might be the
re-runs of that dated show.
the only thing you should ever be in charge of building is a hole in the ground the exact size of your head.
perhaps your beard would fit as well if you plucked out the
army of scabies and
bull weevils sequestered deep in it's sarcophagus of dander and weasel pelts.
shame on you.
you're the only surviving
brain donor I've ever known.
when the gators and Egrets

Back in May, Fandango had the privilege of visiting the Chicago set of the adaptation of Veronica Roth’sDivergentand just last week, it was off to the film’s Los Angeles edit bay to check out what director Neil Burger has accomplished as he creeps closer to locking in his final cut.
For those in need of the basics, Divergent takes place in a post-apocalyptic world where the population is divided into five factions based on a citizen’s core values – Abnegation for selflessness, Dauntless for bravery, Amity for peace, Candor for honesty, and Erudite for intelligence. Shailene Woodley’s Beatrice Prior is born into Abnegation, but come the Choosing Ceremony, she’ll get the opportunity to decide for herself; stick with her family, or trust her gut and leave them behind for a new faction.
Fortunately Beatrice doesn’t have to make this life-changing decision all on her own. Prior to the Choosing Ceremony, all 16-year-olds undergo an aptitude test that reveals an individual’s disposition towards a particular faction. Trouble is, Beatrice’s results are “inconclusive,” and that’s where our preview of the film began.
Tris vs. Katniss
When your narrative involves a young woman fighting for her life in a post-apocalyptic world, comparisons to The Hunger Games are inevitable and Burger knows it. However, he insisted, “This is a far more complex story than Hunger Games, and if you know the book, she starts out questioning her place in society and she ends up questioning society itself, in a real way.” He noted that Katniss never changes. “She’s a good archer to begin with and she’s good at the end.” Tris, on the other hand, “goes through this massive journey, this incredibly extensive change from somebody who is very sheepish and kind of wants to disappear and just doesn’t want to be seen to somebody who’s just gonna really stand up.”
the article's long and is basically more details about the movie but i thought this bit was interesting. those who've read both series, do you think he's correct? i think his assessment of Katniss' character is dumb and this is a stupid marketing move overall but whatever.
Rick Ross hops on the official remix to Lady Gaga and R. Kelly’s “Do What U Want.” The raunchy single gets an added boost from The Bawse and the final product sounds just as good as the original. Check it out above.

Little Boys Lost: Charlie Sheen’s Twins With Brooke Mueller In Danger Of Being Placed In Foster Care
Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller‘s twin sons Bob and Max could be spending Christmas with complete strangers. RadarOnline.com has learned that the four-year-old twins are in very serious danger of being placed in foster care, after Child Protective Services was presented with mystery evidence revealing major inconsistencies in Mueller’s drug treatment program.
“There is a very real possibility that Bob and Max could be placed in foster case because evidence was also uncovered regarding their temporary guardian, Scott, that is riddled with glaring differences in version of events,” a source close to the situation tells Radar exclusively. “The department is taking this very seriously, and are considering recommending the boys be placed in foster care, pending the outcome of the investigation.”
“Charlie can’t get custody of the boys, even if he were to have round the clock nannies because of his past behavior,” the source explains. “Brooke’s parents won’t be considered. It’s such a sad situation, but the safety and well-being of the boys comes first. Such drastic action wouldn’t be taken unless it was necessary, and sadly, it is.”
The boys had been on track to be placed back in their mother’s care by Christmas.
Mueller’s brother, Scott, was recently granted temporary guardianship of the boys, after Denise Richards was forced to give them up because of their violent outbursts towards her daughters, Sam, Lola, Eloise, and the family pets.
Last summer, Brooke lost custody of the boys after being placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold stemming from a drug overdose.
Now, the Los Angeles County of Department of Children & Family Services is set to go before a judge in child dependency court on Thursday, requesting an administrative hearing to be scheduled based on the new information presented to the agency. Mueller is required to be in court on Thursday, and sources say Sheen isn’t expected to attend.
UPDATE: The judge ordered an administrative hearing to be scheduled at the conclusion of the investigation stemming from new information child protective services received regarding inconsistencies of Brooke’s drug treatment.
Denise Richards’ Stunning Backflip: Charlie Sheen’s Ex-Wife Willing To Take On Guardianship Of His Troubled Twins — Again — So They Don’t Go Into Foster Care
After giving up Charlie Sheen and Brooke Mueller‘s twin sons last month, RadarOnline.com is exclusively reporting that Denise Richards has told child protective services she doesn’t want Bob and Max to be placed in foster care, and would be willing to take them back.
Radar broke the heartbreaking news – the twins are in imminent danger of being placed in foster care after the Los Angeles County Department of Children & Family Services were presented with evidence revealing major inconsistencies in their mother Brooke’s drug treatment program.
“Denise reached out to DCFS and said under no circumstances does she want Bob and Max to be placed in foster care. Social workers were impressed with Denise’s commitment to the boys. If the boys were to come back to Denise, she said they would have to be properly tested and assessed for their behavioral issues. She never wanted to give the boys up, but Brooke refused to allow them to be seen by doctors,” a source close to the situation told Radar.
Last summer, Brooke lost custody of the boys after being placed on an involuntary psychiatric hold stemming from a drug overdose.
Her brother, Scott, was recently granted temporary guardianship of the boys, after Richards was forced to give them up because of their violent outbursts towards her daughters, Sam, Lola, Eloise, and the family pets.
In a distressing letter to child protective services, Richards explained why she had to give up temporary guardianship of the boys.
According to Richards, her “daughters have been strangled, kicked in the head and stomach, scratched, bit, slapped, punched in the face and head, and spit on” by the boys, as have the family dogs. One night, she claims, they even broke into their baby sister ‘s room and relieved themselves in her tub, flinging their feces all over her bathroom. Richards has battled to have the boys evaluated for such unimaginable acts, but says that she has been stymied at every turn by Mueller.
Read portions of the heartrending letter here:
“With no authority to make decisions on their behalf, I feel my hands are tied in providing them the proper help, support, and care that I feel as a parent that they need,” she wrote.
Meanwhile, DCFS can go to court “at anytime and ask the judge to strip Scott Mueller of temporary guardianship, and placed in foster care. It’s a very, very real possibility. The agency is looking at all options for the boys placement, and Denise could save them from living with strangers,” Radar’s insider added.
Charlie Sheen criticizes Denise Richards over Christmas snub
Charlie Sheen has hit out at his ex-wife Denise Richards after reportedly discovering he will not be spending Christmas with his daughters.
Sheen is said to have been planning to join his former partner and their two daughters, Sam, 9, and Lola, 8, over the holidays, but sources tell TMZ.com Richards has pulled the plug on the plans.
The actor has now taken to his Twitter.com account to vent his fury at Richards, posting a picture of a baseball bat given to the couple as a wedding souvenir chopped into pieces, with the caption, “The lie is over. I’m done being treated like a relative with a one-way ticket… DuhNeese.”

Reports suggest Sheen will also spend the holidays apart from the twin sons he shares with Brooke Mueller.
The 4-year-old boys, Max and Bob, will be with their temporary guardian, Mueller’s brother Scott, while the former couple’s custody battle continues.

We had heard from Marvel Studios president of production Kevin Feige that official announcements regarding new cast members in The Avengers 2, Ant-Man and Guardians of the Galaxy would be coming by the end of the year and that promise was held. Aaron Taylor-Johnson and Elizabeth Olsen will join Age of Ultron as Quicksilver and Scarlet Witch, respectively, and funnyman Paul Rudd was officially cast this week as Ant-Man in Edgar Wright’s long-in-development Marvel movie. And now, joining them in the Marvel Cinematic Universe will be Vin Diesel as the alien known as Groot in Guardians of the Galaxy.
Guardians of the Galaxy director James Gunn took to Diesel’s favorite social media platform, Facebook, to confirm the news with the photo up top earlier today, where Diesel has his arm around a bust of the character he’s playing. Gunn notes that there have been a few tweaks to the Groot design throughout the process what what’s shown above is what the character will look like in the film.
“Vin Diesel is a super awesome dude. I can’t tell you how much I like this guy."
While responding to Facebook comments, Gunn elaborated and clarified a few things – namely, that despite all the talk and reports of Diesel’s involvement – mostly from the star himself – he was never actually signed for the part, just interested and in talks. Now he’s on board and has already begun his recording sessions.
"He was never announced. He said he wanted to do it and we said we were talking to him. Everything else was people guessing and thinking they knew what was going to happen. Also I hope this puts to rest all the silly Thanos-Vin stuff which people just seemed to make up out of nothing.”
Note the second part where he addresses the rumors that Marvel and Gunn may have been planning a bait-and-switch, making fans think Diesel’s only coming in for Groot, but actually playing (or also playing) the big bad villain known as Thanos – the alien dude at the end of The Avengers who smiles at the idea of “death.”
Still, we know Vin Diesel initially met with Marvel to talk about another, much larger role coming in 2016-17 and that’s still on the table. It’s a part that Diesel hints will “merge brands” and one of our more obvious theories is that he could be leading a movie based on another team of powered heroes called The Inhumans.
But if you're worried that the world's biggest boyband is running out of eligible bachelors, she also confirms that Harry Styles is still single
Get the tissues out girls because One Direction's Niall Horan is off the market and the lucky girl is a knock out.
After previously saying that he was just waiting for the right girl, it appears she's come along in the form of stunning Victoria's Secret model Barbara Palvin.
The blond boybander has found romance with the brunette beauty and they're officially dating, according to Niall's bandmate Louis Tomlinson's sister Félicité.
There are probably going to be quite a few Directioner hearts broken by this news but it's not come as a complete surprise - they have been spotted out and about over the last month, but now it's been properly confirmed.
Writing on Ask.fm 13-year-old Félicité 'Fizzy' Tomlinson said: "I haven't asked him, but when I was at X Factor [USA, earlier this week] Alberto from security said Niall's girlfriend Barbara was here."
The achingly beautiful couple were also recently spotted acting all couple-y with the PDAs walking hand in hand after seeing the new Hunger Games movie.
Our source said at the time: “Barbara came in first and was playing on her phone until Niall arrived.
“He had a security guard with him, and they sat in the front row so nobody could turn around to see them.
“He kept a baseball cap on and pulled it low, to try to avoid being seen. They clearly wanted to keep a low profile.
“They were laughing and joking together throughout the film, and both were dressed casually. You could tell they were comfortable in each other’s company.”
But if you were starting to worry that all the boys from the world's biggest boyband were coupled up, fear not because Taylor Swift's ex Harry Styles is still single.
"Liam [Payne] said everyone has girlfriends here tonight except Harry [Styles] so yeah they're dating," added Félicité.
Before dating Barbara, Niall was linked to Brit songstress Ellie Goulding, X Factor UK contestant Tamera Foster and Made in Chelsea star Louise Thompson.
Well, personally, I choose to believe Louis's sister more than their manager or whoever. What do you think, ONTD?
