Hopefully the PUPPY BOWL will cheer people up.
Philip Seymour Hoffman‘s untimely death has shocked the world and now his family has released a statement thanking his fans for their support during this difficult time.
“We are devastated by the loss of our beloved Phil and appreciate the outpouring of love and support we have received from everyone,” the statement read. “This is a tragic and sudden loss and we ask that you respect our privacy during this time of grieving.

The family will not be making any further statements at this time.
Philip is survived by his partner of 15 years Mimi O’Donnell and their three kids – 10-year-old son Cooper Alexander, seven-year-old daughter Tallulah, and five-year-old daughter Willa.
We continue to send out our thoughts and prayers to Philip‘s loved ones at this time.
Here we go we're pushing!!!! #babyjonas— kevin jonas (@kevinjonas) February 2, 2014
Kevin and Danielle Jonas have been talking about their pregnancy and sharing tons of baby bump Instagram pics since they first announced the happy baby news in July, and now, the oldest JoBro and his wife are finally parents!
Kevin first revealed on Instagram on February 2 that Danielle was in labor, and hours later, tweeted from the hospital that they were pushing. Then around 3pm EST, Danielle’s proud sister Katie took to Twitter to (subtly) say that her niece has been born, tweeting a pink bow and a heart!
My grandfathers memorial was yesterday. Today we welcome a new addition to the jonas family. God is great. Can't wait to meet my new niece.— Nick Jonas (@nickjonas) February 2, 2014

#BabyJonasIsComing - Excited to see our precious baby girl. Yesterday was tough for us but today is one of the best blessings of our lives— Papa Jonas (@PapaJonas) February 2, 2014
ETA: Oops I guess that baby pic that was being tweeted was from a fake account, but Dani's family has been tweeting up a storm so it sounds like the baby has been born.
Sparked by Primal Scream frontman Bobby Gillespie’s controversial claims in December that rock is “dead” and “isn't any more dangerous than the X Factor”, a string of comment pieces and blogs have weighed into the discussion in the past few weeks with some eager to hammer the final nails into rock’s coffin.
Visiting Kerrang! Radio Towers last night to introduce the playback of A Beautiful Lie as part of the new "Kerrang! Presents... In Full!" series, Jared was asked about his take on the alleged demise of the genre. Careful and considered in his response, the 30 Seconds To Mars lynchpin believes that things aren’t as clear cut as many are making out.
Although he admits that rock “isn’t the beast” it once was, Jared’s first point is that the boundaries of what people call rock music are constantly blurring.
“I think it’s an interesting debate to have,” Jared said. “Rock music certainly isn’t the beast that it used to be. But when people say rock it would be better if there were more terms to quantify and qualify what they’re talking about because some people may be talking about hard rock, some people may be talking about alternative rock. Imagine Dragons is a band in the States that’s gotten lots of radio play but some people may think about them as rock, some people may think about them as pop. So I don’t know if people are talking about Iron Maiden or U2 or The Rolling Stones or are they talking about Arctic Monkeys? There are a lot of bands that are still selling a lot of tickets around the world.”
Jared’s second salient point is that with the advent of new technology in the past two decades, people’s listening habits have changed dramatically – single sales are continuing to spiral, while album sales are slumping. He continued: “Pop and hip-hop seem to be a big part of people’s lives. I think now because of the iPod generation people buy songs that they like, they don’t necessarily buy into albums. Rock bands have been the ‘authors’ of albums usually, (rock has) been an album based format not a singles based format but now that a lot of people have stopped listening to albums that changes things.”
Interestingly, Jared also feels that the audio quality of rock has nosedived in recent years: “Technology has a lot to do with it and how we listen to music. When I was a kid you could turn up a rock song at home or in your car and it sounded great – it was on a cassette or an LP and it sounded great and you could turn it up to 12. If you turn a rock song up now to 12 it hurts your ears, the digital delivery of cymbals and distortion and guitars is actually disruptive, it’s not like it used to be because the warmth has gone and it’s not as nice and pleasant an experience as it used to be. And I’m wondering whether someone much smarter than me should take a look at that and see if that affects things when people turn things up? Have you ever tried to play a rock song out of your iPhone? It doesn’t sound that great y’know but you can play an electronic song and it communicates, the song is able to connect. So that may have something to do with it (the decline in rock’s popularity).”
Ultimately, however, Jared believes that rock’s (alleged) demise could be nothing more than a fad: “It also may be style and fashion and we will be sitting here in a year or two and they’ll be writing about how rock is back. Certainly live music is an important part of people’s lives and we’re (30 Seconds To Mars) very happy to play the biggest tour of our lives in the UK, it’s fantastic.”
did i even bold anything relevant? i was too busy getting lost in his eyes
"It is tragic that after 20 years a story engineered by a vengeful lover resurfaces after it was fully vetted and rejected by independent authorities. The one to blame for Dylan's distress is neither Dylan nor Woody Allen."
Accusations of the abuse surfaced in the early 1990s, shortly after the relationship between Allen and long-time girlfriend Mia Farrow ended after she discovered Allen had been having an affair with Soon-Yi Previn, the adopted daughter of Mia Farrow and composer/conductor André Previn. Allen denies the allegations, and has never been prosecuted in this case.
Allen and his defenders say that Dylan was coached to make the allegations by Mia Farrow. Discussion of the alleged assaults was renewed following a recent tribute to Allen at the Golden Globe Awards.
ETA 4:57pm EST: Allen's publicist Leslee Dart emails the following on Sunday afternoon:
"Mr. Allen has read the article and found it untrue and disgraceful. He will be responding very soon...At the time, a thorough investigation was conducted by court appointed independent experts. The experts concluded there was no credible evidence of molestation; that Dylan Farrow had an inability to distinguish between fantasy and reality; and that Dylan Farrow had likely been coached by her mother Mia Farrow. No charges were ever filed.

Philip Seymour Hoffman was nearly finished working on his role as Plutarch Heavensbee in the two The Hunger Games: Mockingjay films before his untimely and shocking death.
The 46-year-old actor had completed the majority of his work for Mockingjay Part 1 and only had seven days of filming left to go on Mockingjay Part 2 before his death, according to Deadline.
“Philip Seymour Hoffman was a singular talent and one of the most gifted actors of our generation. We’re very fortunate that he graced our Hunger Games family. Losing him in his prime is a tragedy, and we send our deepest condolences to Philip’s family,” Lionsgate said in a statement.
The Oscar-winning actors are turning their producing talents to a comedy for the small screen
We are more used to seeing Ben Affleck and Matt Damon's names attached to Hollywood movies...
But the Oscar winning actors, writers and directors are turning their talents to a CBS sitcom, entitled More Time With Family.
The A-list friends, who wrote Academy Award winning Good Will Hunting in 1997 and have starred in a number of films together, are executive producing the comedy, which centres on a father who makes a career change to spend more time with his family.
The multi-camera sitcom will star American comedian Tom Papa and is written by The King of Queens' Josh Goldsmith and Cathy Yuspa.
Ben Affleck, who won directed Oscar winner Argo, is set to star as Batman in the Man of Steel sequel. Behind the Candelabra actor Damon is set to star in upcoming film The Monuments Men.
"Sad" isn't the word I'd use to describe a 46 year old man throwing his life away to drugs. "Senseless" is more like it. "Stupid".— Jared Padalecki (@jarpad) February 2, 2014
I didnt mean PSH is stupid or that addiction isnt a reality. I simply meant I have a different definition of "tragedy".— Jared Padalecki (@jarpad) February 2, 2014
When I think "tragedy", I think of St Judes, of genocide, of articles I read in the paper. But, yes, either way, a death, is sad.— Jared Padalecki (@jarpad) February 2, 2014
Dylan Farrow stepped out of the shadows Saturday to detail the sexual abuse she allegedly suffered at the hands of adopted father Woody Allen two decades earlier.
A day later, the New York Times columnist who broke the story tells PEOPLE the young woman is now feeling encouraged by the supportive feedback that has been pouring in.
"She's really heartened by the response and support she's getting," Nicholas Kristof tells PEOPLE. (Kristof, a friend of Dylan's mother, Mia Farrow, and her brother, Ronan Farrow, first published excerpts of her open letter to Allen on Saturday.) "She sends a big thank you to all those speaking up about sexual abuse and trying to break the silence."
Now 28, married and living in Florida under a different name, Dylan took a huge step coming forward, says Kristof. "She was nervous about what the reaction would be to an essay so personal, but she put herself out there."
Dylan told Kristof she "has been traumatized for more than two decades by what took place" and was belatedly diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder just last year. Then, when she heard of the Golden Globe award being given to Allen, he writes: "She curled up in a ball on her bed, crying hysterically."
She first spoke in October about the abuse, but this new letter (published in full on Kristof's blog) provides harrowing details about what she claims secretly took place in the family's attic.
"[The assault was] far worse than people know," she wrote. "That he got away with what he did to me haunted me as I grew up. I was terrified of being touched by men. I developed an eating disorder. I began cutting myself."
Connecticut state's attorney Frank S. Maco announced in 1993 that while he found "probable cause" to prosecute Allen, he was dropping the case because Dylan was too "fragile" to deal with a trial.
Maco recently told PEOPLE that despite Dylan's recent openness, he stands by that decision. "I had to first and foremost consider the child."
In a scene from SodaStream's Super Bowl commercial, actress Scarlett Johansson turns to the camera and wonders: 'If only I could make this message go viral' before slipping into a satin dress.
The answer is simple: you need to get your advert censored ahead of a huge sporting event and your global brand ambassador slammed by a humanitarian group.
SodaStream, an Israeli maker of fizzy drink machines, has managed to pull off the ultimate PR coup by making its television advert go viral before the Super Bowl XLVIII football game airs tonight.
First, Scarlett Johansson, SodaStream's global ambassador and star of the controversial ad, came under fire for supporting the company, which operates in the occupied West Bank, from Oxfam International, which opposes all trade from Israeli settlements, arguing that it is illegal and denies Palestinian rights.
But it seems the actress prefers the bubbles.
On Thursday, Johansson, 29, announced she was ending her relationship with the charity after eight years, citing "fundamental differences of opinion, with the humanitarian group.
But for chief executive Daniel Birnbaum all publicity is good publicity, although he describes the location of the factory in a West Bank industrial zone near Jerusalem as a "pain".
He told The Independent: "We have to deal with the media and activist who too often demonise us just because of the location of the factory."
Birnbaum says there are no financial incentives in keeping production in Mishor Adumim. He insists that his company has no political agenda and it provides equal opportunities for all employees.
"We purchase special health insurance for our 500 Palestinian employees so that we can be sure they have coverage for things like emergency surgery and organ transplants," he added.
Last year, there were 399 settler attacks on Palestinians, up from 369 in 2012, resulting in 146 injuries, and 306 attacks on private Palestinian property, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs, signalling settlement violence is on the rise.
With just hours to go until the game, Birnbaum went on to accuse Oxfam of providing funding to the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign against Israel, citing documents from the Women's Coalition for Peace, which describes itself as "a feminist organisation against the occupation of Palestine".
Speaking at a conference today, he said: "We found out that some of the Oxfam branches have been donating funds to the BDS, and this money is used to demonize and attack Israel."
Oxfam denied the allegations saying it does not provide funding for promotion of the BDS movement or activities that call for the boycott of Israel. However, it reiterated that it opposes trade with Israeli settlements in the West Bank.
He was an actor who never repeated himself and, unlike many of his contemporaries, Philip Seymour Hoffman morphed, chameleon-like into an ever-changing slate of roles that proved him to be one of the most eclectic and versatile actors in Hollywood.
Here, we take a look back at 10 of his most memorable parts.
Father Brendan Flynn, Doubt (2008)
When you’re starring alongside Meryl Streep, you have to bring your A-game. Hoffman did that and more in his Oscar-nominated role as a priest who is accused of having an inappropriate relationship with one of his church’s alter boys.
Truman Capote, Capote (2005)
This is the film that really put Hoffman on the map for conventional moviegoers. It was the best performance of that year - Hoffman won an Oscar - and his approach to the role bordered on something out of this world. He breathed life into a person who until then had been but words on a page.
Paul Zara, The Ides of March (2011)
It’s a small part, but Hoffman was riveting in this tale of political deception and double dealing. He more than held his own opposite George Clooney and Ryan Gosling.
Owen Davian, Mission: Impossible III (2006)
In a rare move, Hoffman went Hollywood playing the baddie opposite Tom Cruise’s Ethan Hunt in the third M:I film. He is the series’ best villain.
Andy Hanson, Before the Devil Knows You’re Dead (2007)
Co-starring in Sidney Lumet’s last feature film before his death in 2011, Hoffman shone as the brother who lures his sibling into a deadly jewelry heist.

Lana Del Rey and her dad Rob Grant step out to do some shopping at a chic antique store on Thursday (January 30) in Beverly Hills, Calif.
Rumors recently began swirling that the 27-year-old entertainer and her boyfriend, Barrie-James O’Neill, are engaged after pictures of a ring surfaced. Sources tell JustJared.com that the duo are not engaged, and Lana has had that ring for years. There you have it!
This past weekend at the 2014 Grammys, Lana‘s song “Summertime Sadness” picked up the award for Best Remixed Recording, Non-Classical, though the prize technically goes to the song’s remixer Cedric Gervais.
Also that evening, Lana‘s new cover version of the classic song “Once Upon a Dream” was released as the music for the trailer of Maleficent, which debuted during a commercial break on the awards show.
Gethin Anthony interviewed for Park City Television
Lol this goober.
Gethin will star in "The Hotel Plays" by Tennessee Williams
Gethin will star in "Green Eyes," one of three plays that encompasses the cycle.
Written in 1970 but unpublished for almost 40 years, this lost thriller graphically reveals the impact of war through the sexual fantasies of a newly-wed couple in New Orleans. "Green Eyes" transforms a honeymoon suite into a battleground where desire and violence become blurred and indistinguishable.
Gethin gives a charming fireside apology to Pensacon attendees
I'm so happy Gethin is finally going to be in more things. Bless this flawless king. <3
What would The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills be without yet another claws-out rivalry?
But according to Kyle Richards, she had no idea newbie Carlton Gebbia had any beef with her – that is, until Richards finally watched the show on TV.
PEOPLE caught up with Richards Friday at the Big Game Big Give Super Bowl Party hosted by Alec Baldwin in New York City, where the reality star said she's been keeping up with the show's current season – and admitted to being frustrated with Gebbia.
She's "looking for t--- on an ant," Richards, 45, said about her rival, claiming that Gebbia, 40, takes things out of context and often isn't given the chance to explain herself.
Case in point: a verbal spat that erupted on the show's Jan. 27 episode when Richards noted that Gebbia's new tattoo resembled a Jewish star, prompting a shocked reaction from Gebbia.
(Richards tells PEOPLE that Gebbia's mic was blocking a part of the tattoo, preventing Richards from fully making it out.)
But the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills isn't the only reality show stirring up some controversy in the Richards household.
Richards reveals that her daughter Farrah was asked to star in the new E! reality show Rich Kids of Beverly Hills but declined, and Farrah remains close friends with the cast.
Richards believes that the spoiled, entitled persona the kids project on the show is far from the truth, saying, "I feel bad – they are not as horrible and stupid as they seem."
The backlash, however, has been harsh: Richards says that Farrah posted an Instagram photo of her with some of the cast and it generated such vicious comments, she had to take it down.
Maserati, the luxury automotive brand, celebrated its all-new Ghibli with a 90-second broadcast spot titled "Strike," starring Quvenzhané Wallis, and directed by David Gordon Green (George Washington), during the first quarter of Super Bowl 48.
The $66,900 Ghibli (cheap compared to the car maker's other offerings) was first unveiled to the U.S. in November at the Los Angeles Auto Show. It's Maserati's first-ever mid-size four-door luxury sports sedan vehicle.
Filmed on location in Los Angeles, "Strike" is described by the company in a press release as "a poetic nod to a brand with proven tradition and one of the highest standards of quality in the industry, who has been hard at work engineering an automobile that will usher it into the next 100 years of innovation—an automobile with power and personality capable of striking against the status quo. The spot is relevant to Americans everywhere who have had struggles and obstacles to overcome. It is a reminder that with steadfast commitment to hard work and unwavering passion, we can deal with our own "giants" around us, we can overcome them and achieve what we set out to do."
The broadcast spot was created in partnership with independent advertising agency, Wieden+Kennedy (W+K), based out of Portland, Ore.
Watch the ad, and read along as Ms Wallis speaks the words from "Strike" below:
The world is full of giants.
They have always been here, lumbering in the schoolyards, limping through the alleys.
We had to learn how to deal with them, how to overcome them.
We were small but fast, remember?
We were like a wind appearing out of nowhere.
We knew that being clever was more important than being the biggest kid in the neighborhood.
As long as we keep our heads down, as long as we work hard,
trust what we feel in our guts, our hearts,
Then we're ready.
We wait until they get sleepy,
wait until they get so big they can barely move,
and then walk out of the shadows,
quietly walk out of the dark—and strike.
Random choice, but I like it.
Just because your team didn’t make the Super Bowl doesn’t mean you have to sit out the celebration. This weekend in New York, NFL quarterback Cam Newton, who led the Carolina Panthers to the second round of playoffs, hit the hottest parties, gave dozens of television and radio interviews, and signed hundreds of footballs for fans before watching Sunday’s big game. Meanwhile, model and super fan Kate Upton shared a suite at MetLife Stadium with her mom—and somehow amidst the crowd found the Seahawks’ twelfth man.
Promoters for Zimmerman's upcoming celeb boxing match tell us he badly wants to step in the ring with Yeezus. The promoters are deliciously Machiavellian --- knowing for many it will become a choice between 2 evils ... thus becoming a must-see spectacle.
We're told George's beef with Kanye is not just that he attacks paparazzi ... but the innocents as well -- like the 18-year-old who allegedly called Kim an "N***** lover."
The promoters say if Kanye takes Zimmerman up on the offer ... they're willing to move the fight to L.A.
We'd livestream that.
