Grumpy Welsh Prince Becomes Full-Time NMTB Host

Iconic pop quiz Never Mind the Buzzcocks returns to BBC Two later this year with a brand new full-time host - Welsh comedian, Rhod Gilbert. He will join regular team captains Noel Fielding and Phill Jupitus for the 28th series of the anarchic comedy pop quiz show.

A sell-out sensation at the Edinburgh Festival every year from 2005-2012, Rhod is a hugely successful stand-up comedian - his debut live DVD, released in 2009, was that year's fastest selling debut stand-up DVD.

Rhod's wealth of music and comedy knowledge and his experience of guest hosting on Buzzcocks will also stand him in good stead with the powerhouse panel.

Rhod Gilbert says: “After my first Buzzcocks in 2009, I was told I was in with a shout to take over as regular host, and now, just five years later, I got the call. It has all happened so fast. Never Mind the Buzzcocks is one of those rare shows that feels like it belongs on our screens. It's an institution, in a good way. It's a great honour to be asked to take the reins full time and to hang out with Noel and Phill, and I'm equally excited and nervous about adding my name to those who have hosted it in the past."

If you're not pleased about this, you're entitled to your wrong opinion, that's fine dot gif.

Bryan Singer Turns Attention To New Comic Book Property; Will He Still Direct 'X-Men: Apocalypse'?

Though his future with the X-Men franchise is in doubt following accusations of sexual assault, X-Men: Days of Future Past Bryan Singer has in no way been blacklisted in Hollywood and is in fact already pushing forward with another high-profile comic-book property. According to The Tracking Board, Singer is currently developing action fantasy Age of Heroes through his Bad Hat Harry Productions banner.

Based on the ’90s comic series and recent novel of the same name by James Hudnall, Age of Heroes centers on a band of misfits in a fantasy land that is ruled over by gods. But when those all-powerful beings disappear, the misfits are forced to step up and defend their land against new threars. The more complete, official synopsis reads as follows: "When the gods were born, they remade the world in the image of their dreams. This was known as the Age of Gods. When man was created along with other races of beings, fantastic cities were raised, insane magics were forged and unimaginable wars were fought, as the gods battled for supremacy over all creation. This was known as the Age of Wonders. When the gods fled and man was left to make his way in a world full of monsters and arcane magic, some rose up to right wrongs and create justice. This was known as The Age of Heroes."

Newcomer Alex Hollister will write the script. In addition to Singer, Marc Berliner is also attached to produce, as are David Engel and Stephen Emery through their Circle of Confusion company. No word yet on whether Singer also plans to direct Age of Heroes.

There’s also still no official word on whether Singer will be helming X-Men: Apocalypse, Fox’s 2016-slotted Days of Future Past follow-up. He’s currently working on developing the film for Fox, but the recent allegation against him are likely causing studio execs to hesitate in handing him the gig officially (not that his legal troubles appear to have had any effect on the box office earnings of Days of Future Past).

Jermaine Dupri: "The Elusive Chanteuse will slay!"

Long time collaborator Jermaine Dupri is confident that Mariah Carey has another hit on her hands. Despite having the lowest first week sales of her career with Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse selling 58,000 copies, J.D. does not seem disappointed. He has faith that his executively produced project will build over time.

"I actually feel like it's probably one of her best albums she's ever made," he told Rap-Up TV at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards. "I'm excited to see where the album ends up. I tell a lot of people, this era of music and this genre, they don't understand records that come out small and sell a lot of records."

The So So Def founder is familiar with these types of situations. J.D.who helped manage the careers of other performers such as Kris Kross and Shad Moss (formerly known as Bow Wow) explained that they experienced something similar before going on to sell millions. "So it's like the first-week sales sometimes don't really matter," he said. "I think people gotta start understanding. If you have a plan and you can put the plan in play, you just gotta keep livin' it out."

Mariah plans to begin shooting the video for her single "You Don't Know What to Do" featuring Wale, which was produced by Dupri.

SEE IT: Nine Inch Nails song soothes crying baby

This rebel baby will cry you a river — until she hears Nine Inch Nails. Hilarious footage sees the tiny toddler weeping away before her pop puts on a spot of industrial rock.

"Oh," she mumbles at hearing the unusual lullaby, before transforming into the happiest infant alive. Giggling and smiling away, she then starts swaying her body to the beat.

Gary Kennedy uploaded the amusing clip to YouTube — called "How to Stop a Baby Crying with Nine Inch Nails" — last month. It's unclear exactly where the footage was filmed, but it's since gone viral with more than 68,000 views.

"For whatever reason this song always makes her happy," the proud dad wrote in the video's description. The song is 'Copy Of A' by Nine Inch Nails. It's worth the buck or two for the track if it works this well," he said. "I thank Trent Reznor for turning my crying child into a smiling dancer," he added.

Nickelodeon Cancels Sam & Cat! There Will Be No Season Two!

Well it seems that Nickelodeon has indeed cancelled Sam & Cat.

A combined spin-off of Victorious and iCarly, Sam & Cat finds Sam Puckett and Cat Valentine becoming friends and roommates. To make money they start an after-school babysitting business. Maree Cheatham, Cameron Ocasio, and Zoran Korach co-star.

The series was initially picked up for 20 episodes and they started airing in June 2013. It was such a big hit that the cable channel ordered 20 more after just one month of airings.

The series was on track to be renewed for a second season but some backstage issues derailed Sam & Cat towards the end of its first year, resulting in only 36 episodes being produced.

The sitcom was later put on permanent hiatus by Nickelodeom. Well, they appear to have quietly made that decision and the show is over.

The channel recently started airing promos that just two episodes remain. One runs tonight — #WeStealARockStar — while the series finale will air next Saturday, titled #GettinWiggy.

Marc Jacobs' 'Daisy Dream' takes on the style of Sofia Coppola's 'The Virgin Suicides'

Sofia Copoala's stylish, iconic film "The Virgin Suicides" was released 15 years ago but is still influences fashion today.


If you aren't familiar, the film, starring Kirsten Dunst tells of the events surrounding the lives of five sisters in an upper-middle class suburb of Detroit during the 1970s. After the youngest sister makes an initial attempt at suicide, the sisters are put under close scrutiny by their parents, eventually being put into near-confinement, which leads to increasingly depressive and isolated behaviour.

Just this year, Coppola revisited the film's style directing a "Virgin Suicides"-like ad campaign for Marc Jacobs' new fragrance, "Daisy Dream." The 30-second video shows model Antoino Wesseloh wearing a gauzy white dress, lying in a field of daisies. Sleigh Bells provides the soundtrack.

Tonight Show Superlatives: 2014 World Cup

Brazil's World Cup 2014 will be over come tomorrow night with either Argentina or Germany emerging as world champions, thus bringing to a close the past month of world cup madness, which has been glorious and given us plenty of excuses to call out of work.

Although there may only be one winner, last night Jimmy Fallon found the time to make both teams winners, so-to-speak, in this World Cup 2014 edition of The Tonight Show's "Superlatives." Watch as players from both teams, like Argentina's Lionel Messi, or Germany's Manuel Neuer, get these unorthodox awards.

Release Date + Information on the 2nd Veronica Mars Book!

For those of you who enjoyed the last Veronica Mars book, Amazon has information on the second!



Release Date: October 28th, 2014

They have also released the summary of the second book:

In the second book in the New York Times bestselling mystery series, Veronica Mars is back with a case that will expose the hidden workings of one of Neptune’s most murderous locations.

The Neptune Grand has always been the seaside town’s ritziest hotel, despite the shady dealings and high-profile scandals that seem to follow its elite guests. When a woman claims that she was brutally assaulted in one of its rooms and left for dead by a staff member, the owners know that they have a potential powder keg on their hands. They turn to Veronica to disprove—or prove—the woman's story.

The case is a complicated mix of hard facts, mysterious occurrences, and uncooperative witnesses. The hotel refuses to turn over its reservation list and the victim won’t divulge who she was meeting that night. Add in the facts that the attack happened months ago, the victim’s memory is fuzzy, and there are holes in the hotel’s surveillance system, and Veronica has a convoluted mess on her hands. As she works to fill in the missing pieces, it becomes clear that someone is lying—but who? And why?

"'She's a really good person,' says Chatham girl who met Lady Gaga"


A Chatham girl who survived a brain tumour had a dream come true Wednesday night when she met Lady Gaga. Ten-year-old Avery Fournier spent 15 minutes with the entertainer following her Toronto concert. For a 10-year-old who's no stranger to fighting battles, the encounter was inspirational.

“She’s a really good person. She’s not just about the fame, she cares too, about…the fans.” And it was also a “shocking” encounter as Avery’s mother didn’t tell her about the surprise beforehand. “She was keeping it a secret from me.” Avery says Lady Gaga told her to stand up for herself and be herself. Avery is an inspiration herself, having battled a brain tumour that left her legally blind. She can’t see more than 16 inches away.

The backstage meeting happened after her mother reached out to The Toronto Star…who managed to get word to Lady Gaga's staff. “It was exciting for me because I’ve been pushing for this for so long,” says Avery’s mother Chris. She says it was touching to see the star get right up close to her daughter’s face for about 30 seconds and rub noses. Avery also received an autographed concert book from Lady Gaga. The tickets to the concert were given to her by an anonymous donor.

One Direction Beat Everybody By Bringing In $131.5 Million On Tour

One Direction isn’t losing any of their grip on pop culture, judging from the band’s ability to fill seats. The British hearthrobs sold 1.6 million tickets at just 31 stadium shows, grossing $131.5 million on tour in the first half of 2014, according to a mid-year report from Pollstar. Expect them to top the year-end report, too—the band hasn’t started its North American stadium tour, which launches in August.

One Direction led the list of the top 100 worldwide concert tours. The Rolling Stones–whose average ticket price was $177, compared to One Direction’s $81–came in at No.2 with $115.1 million. Rounding out the international top 5 were Justin Timberlake ($110.2 million), Bruce Springsteen & the E Street Band ($64.9 million) and Michael Buble ($62.2).

Among North American tours, country star George Strait led the pack, with a gross of $61.8 million for 26 concerts celebrating his retirement from touring. Other top ticket sellers included Billy Joel ($50.7 million), Cher ($48.5 million), Justin Timberlake ($33.9 million) and co-headliners Paul Simon and Sting, who pulled in $29.5 million.

Overall, sales have fallen this year: The top 100 North American tours grossed $1.03 billion combined, down 17% from the same time last year. The volume of tickets sold fell 12.6% to 15.3 million, despite the fact that the average price of a ticket dropped to $67.58, down from a record high last year of $70.91.

Pollstar attributed some of the sales decline to the fact that bands are playing more music festivals, which aren’t included in the overall tour tallies. Speaking of which, Coachella racked up the biggest revenue haul of any concert event this year, grossing $78.3 over its two sold-out weekends (and $10 million more than the festival pulled in last year).

The Hills character Kelly Cutrone: "$1 Million Isn't A Lot of Money Anymore"

$1 million may seem like a hefty annual salary to the average person, but for PR maven Kelly Cutrone, it can go quickly.

The 48-year-old single mom and founder of fashion publicity firm People's Revolution, known for her various reality TV appearances, tells the Huffington Post: 'I personally have made a million dollars a year - that's not a lot of money anymore, just do the math.'

Dwight Howard tweets #FreePalestine, immediately deletes and apologizes

Dwight Howard has stepped right into the middle of a heated political issue - tweeting #FreePalestine - and then immediately deleting it, apologizing and calling it a "mistake."

On Saturday afternoon, the NBA star offered no explanation as to why he posted the #FreePalestine tweet, but it seems it was motivated by the current situation in the Middle East.

Moments after the tweet went up, it went down. And the backpeddling began:

But who cares? It's hot people who don't know each other taking off each other's clothes. That's why we're all here. Press play.
