Jennifer Aniston Dreams Of Leaving Hollywood

Jennifer Aniston Dreams Of Leaving HollywoodJennifer Aniston has vowed to quit Hollywood to escape the glare of the media spotlight.

The former Friends star, who is dating musician John Mayer, is hounded by the paparazzi eager to get a photo of Aniston on a daily basis. But the actress is sick of the constant attention, and is planning to leave Los Angeles one day, to live "somewhere remote" where "nobody really cares." And Aniston is considering taking a sabbatical from acting as she ponders her future.

She tells Britain's Elle magazine, "I don't have a game plan. I don't think that in five years' time I need to be doing this or that. You set yourself up for disappointment that way. It seems unnecessary torture. I can see myself taking a few years off, living somewhere remote. I would miss acting."

"But... eventually, I'm not going to be living in L.A. full-time. Eventually I'm going to move somewhere nobody really cares. Just go off and be alone."

Snoop Dogg On The Set Of MTV's 'Dogg After Dark'

Snoop Dogg On The Set Of MTV's 'Dogg After Dark'The President of MTV Networks recently described one superstar artist as "pushing the boundaries of hip-hop with his signature antics, incredible catalogue of music, legendary videos, larger than life personality and even a little controversy."

So, what's this particular artist's 'motherfu*king name'? Hint: He's slim with the tilted brim, frequently has his mind on his money (and yes, his money on his mind) and he's not afraid to drop it like it's hot.

In fact, it's these attributes that compel a group of reporters - yours truly among them - to the upscale Hollywood nightclub The Kress, past the line of scantily clad ingénues waiting to get in, up several flights of stairs and onto the rainy, rooftop deck of the art-deco hot spot to wait for the man of the hour. When he finally appears, lanky in his tux and sporting shades in the evening darkness, he's an hour late. Doesn't matter: He is, after all, the Doggfather.

Snoop DoggAt only 37, Snoop Dogg (nee Calvin Broadus) has evolved several times over: A Rap star who burst onto the scene in the early 90's with his collaboration on Dr. Dre's album "The Chronic" and the subsequent release of his own hit album "Doggystyle," Snoop has also worn the mantle of producer, entrepreneur and clothier. Considering his recently inked multiplatform deal with MTV that includes his late night variety show "Dogg After Dark," exclusive release rights for his upcoming album Malice in Wonderland and even inclusion in the 'Rock Band' videogame franchise, the title Master of Media may not be an overstatement.

So, how does Snoop keep all the irons in the fire?

"This is me. I was born to do this. It's not a juggle, it's not an act. It's just what I do."

For a man who coined a thousand catch-phrases (Refraining…For now), Snoop is soft-spoken, articulate and mellow. If he's worried at all that his new MTV variety show "Dogg After Dark" is a gamble (remember Thanksgiving's turkey "Rosie Live" anyone?), he doesn't let on.

"My show is a show that's not about me bringing people on here to dig dirt on 'em and talk bad about 'em," Snoop says firmly. Instead, he makes clear it's a forum for celebrity friends to "have a comfort zone and do what they feel on the show. Any time you can hang with me, we gonna have a good time at all times."

The show's format is certainly aimed to give audiences that good-time feeling: A mix of interviews, performances and comedy segments, the show features host Snoop roaming around all four sexily-lit levels of The Kress, interacting so smoothly with guests and club goers, it feels less like a live set and more like an memorable night out. It's reminiscent of the 1959 show "Playboy Penthouse" in which Hugh Hefner chatted up guests on a set designed to look like his apartment. Snoop respects Hef and the show that came before, but shrugs off most comparisons. "Hugh Hefner had 'em jumping outta swimming pools. I got 'em jumping outta Cadillacs."

If anything, Snoop would more closely align himself with bygone comic idols like Flip Wilson and Richard Pryor. "I can't touch them," Snoop admits, "(but) they inspired me. (They were) so cutting edge and timeless. I try to add my element … When I'm done with it, somebody's going to be inspired by me and do what I couldn't do with it."

As for what Snoop can do with it, one goal is to continue exposing his "Dogg After Dark" audience to up-and-coming talent. The show has featured Kid Cudi, LMFAO and soon, says Snoop, we'll soon be introduced to a new group from his hometown of Long Beach. "I'm really into breaking that new talent and giving that shot to a new artist," ventures Snoop. "They might be the next great whoever-it-is."

Having a good time, bringing something new to the variety format and breaking new artists are worthy reasons for embarking on this new television venture, but does Snoop have an ulterior motive for hanging at The Kress? On his E! reality show "Fatherhood," it's common to hear his wife Shante haranguing him about his diet. Here at The Kress, Snoop D-O-Double G often indulges in barbeque ribs and chicken wings cooked up by his Uncle Reo.

"This is my time to play, you understand me? Fatherhood is more about taking orders and being in line in the house. When I'm outside the house, I'm basically giving orders and doing my thang. "Snoop pauses, then chuckles. "Don't tell on me."

There doesn't seem to be much Dogg is unwilling to tackle, but the jack-of-all-trades does demur when asked by a reporter (not this one) whether he'd have the embattled Chris Brown and Rihanna on the show. "I'd have anybody on the show who is in the music/entertainment world," Snoop says mildly.

When pressed to give the young couple advice on their alleged domestic altercation, Snoop keeps his good humor. "That's not my department. I'd bring Dr. Phil in… Or Dr. Drew. (Even) Dr. Dre!"

Later downstairs, the full house is hushed as filming of the fifth episode commences. Snoop slides into a banquette to chat with singer/songwriter The Dream (whose rumored girlfriend Christina Milian watches off-camera nearby). Dogg is undeniably charming and he manages to make interviews feel unscripted and effortless. As he moves to the next set-up with a relaxed air, it's easy to forget that this is actually work for him and the crew.

When asked if there are any drawbacks to hosting "Dogg After Dark," Snoop smiles slyly. "The Press."

No word yet on whether the series will be picked up for additional episodes beyond the seven MTV ordered (the premiere drew a less-than-stellar 587,000 total viewers) but Snoop is pretty clear about what makes "Dogg After Dark" must-see TV.

"It's not the whole sitting behind a desk interviewing a guest all night. It's flowing, it's floor-to-floor, it's action, it's movement, it's pretty girls. It's a great time. It's 'Dogg After Dark'."

One Tree Hill Finale: End of Season

One Tree Hill Finale: End of SeasonTV show One Tree Hill seems to be coming to an end. It will be the end of season on May 16, 2009. The unfolding of events looked like the culmination of the series. Will this favorite TV series come to a full stop? No need to be disappointed. The series will return later this year with its seventh season that will be a four years leap into the future. There is to be more drama, several new personalities, and of course, new grudges.

The finale presented a theme of life, death and change hinting that it may be the end of the series. Clichéd scenes and story development made the end of season quite predictable, and seem the end of the series. One Tree Hill will come back with more dramatic revelations. Fans have to wait before they can know what changes take place after the series make a comeback. The mystery will continue.

Madonna’s adoption plans delayed

Madonna’s adoption plans delayedIt will not be before Friday this week when Madonna will hear whether she can adopt her second child from Malawi. The 50-year old pop star was in the African country to know about the judge’s decision about her adoption application. She appeared in court Monday (March 30), in Lilongwe, the capital of Malawi. However, her adoption plans have to wait. A judge declared that the ruling on the matter will be held till Friday. The child Madonna wants to adopt is a 4-year old girl whose unmarried mother had died soon after her birth. Last year, she had adopted her 3-year-old son David from an orphanage in Malawi.

Criticisms have made the matter a sensitive issue. Children’s advocacy groups have held Madonna guilty of using her wealth to make the adoption possible and rush it. According to Malawian law, it is necessary for a foreign adopter to live in the country with the child for more than a year before adoption. The judge, however, has the discretion to let Madonna have the child immediately. UK charity group Save the Children have said Madonna is sending a wrong message through the second adoption, and that it encourages impoverished parents “to abandon children in the hope that they will have a better life.”

Some of the Malawians support the adoption. An onlooker outside the court on Monday stated “We are blessed for what Madonna is doing here,” adding “That baby is going to have the advantages of going to school and of becoming someone. Here it is very difficult.” One of the poorest nations in the world, Malawi has 14% of its adults infected withthe virus that causes AIDS.

Madonna first visited Malawi in 2006 for charity work, and for her documentary “I Am Because We Are,” a film on poverty and AIDS in Malawi. She also helps run Raising Malawi, a non-profit group which helps the poor people of Malawi. If the adoption takes place, then Madonna will be a single mother of four.

Celebrities, awards, slime, and the orange carpet- Some night indeed.

A few slimy quotes of the evening:

Miley Cirus - “Oh, I would get my buddy Demi Lovato because she looks so pretty today. It’d be great to get her slimed!“

Lovato- “Oh, I would want to get slimed by Miley. I mean, she’s the teen queen. Why not? But, if I could slime anybody, I would want to slime the Jonas Brothers. They pranked me a lot on tour. So I want to get them back.“

Nick Jonas- “I want to slime him (Hugh Jackman) pretty bad. I just watched Australia, and it’s so epic. I would like to do the sliming, of course. That’d be pretty awesome. And I think he’d react very well,”

Jason Statham Taking a Dip in Malibu

Jason Statham Taking a Dip in MalibuJason Statham taking a dip in Malibu to cool off from the hot Californian sun on Saturday. Statham, the 36-year-old British hunk, is known for his roles in the Guy Ritchie crime films Lock, Stock and Two Smoking Barrels; Revolver; and Snatch. Many could have seen Jason in The Italian Job as well.

Is Jason really that hot? Very subjective. He does have a pretty built body though. Statham has been an Olympic diver on the British National Diving Team. Jason has never been married although he had once dated Kelly Brook for a long time. He’s also rumored to have dated Kate Hudson briefly in recent months.

We all know that Jason’s been acting and he’s a diver and he has been modeling. Did you know that Jason does a lot of his own stunts including hardcore car chases, scuba diving and fighting?

Now you must find him pretty hot? He’s single! Well, that’s what we think anyway.

Robert Pattinson Never Showers and Stinks

Robert Pattinson Never Showers and StinksE! News has learned one awful truth about Robert Pattinson after being told by a source "who works in very close quarters with Pattz" that the movie heartthrob "stinks". "I mean, it's awful. He never showers, and it drives people on the set crazy," the unidentified source reveals further. In the same tone with the source, a crew member who has worked with the "Twilight" hottie also tells E! News, "He completely reeks."

It is not known whether Robert's body odor also annoys his film co-stars. Besides, there has yet record if Robert himself is aware of the sources' complaint concerning the smell of his body.

Aside from his body odor, Robert Pattinson previously has publicly revealed that he has much dandruff. "Earlier on, I didn't know what was going on, I was like going nuts," he said. "I was supposed to have a little afternoon nap this afternoon, I just went like that (shakes his hair) all afternoon to see how much dandruff could possibly come out of my hair. It was intense."

Notwithstanding the issue regarding his personal life, Robert currently is in Vancouver filming the highly anticipated "Twilight" sequel, "The Twilight Saga's New Moon". In the drama-romance-thriller flick, which is slated for November 20, 2009 U.S. release date, he will reprise his role as Edward Cullen.

Miley Cyrus Reveals She Has a Heart Condition

Miley Cyrus Reveals She Has a Heart ConditionTween queen Miley Cyrus has written songs about her broken heart, but in her new autobiography she writes about an actual heart affliction.

Cyrus has a condition called tachycardia, which causes her heart rate to speed up. "The type of tachycardia I have isn't dangerous," she writes in her new book, Miles to Go. "It won't hurt me, but it does bother me. There is never a time onstage when I'm not thinking about my heart."

The book also addresses her broken heart in a chapter to her "Prince Charming," perhaps one Nick Jonas. "Wow! I was so in love," she writes. "Do you know what I'm talking about? The kind of love where the sun could shine or not shine all day long and you wouldn't care."

After their breakup, that love turned to hate — at least in the form of her song "7 Things I Hate About You."

"I was angry when I wrote '7 Things,'" she writes. "I wanted to punish him, to get back at him for hurting me. It starts with a list of what I 'hate.' But I'm not a hater. My heart knew from the start that it was going to turn into a love song. Why does he get a love song? Because I don't hate him."

Madonna’s Hookups with Men may Ruin Adoption Plans

Madonna’s Hookups with Men may Ruin Adoption PlansShe may be trying to work for some social cause, but the pop diva’s lifestyle is creating all the trouble for her. Her hookups with A-Rod and Jesus Luz may get in the way of her plans to adopt another child from Africa.

The officials related to adoption in Malawi have already declared that Madonna’s raging love affair with the 22 year old Jesus Luz and Yankee baseball player Alex Rodriguez may simply ruin her plans of adopting Mercy James, a 3 year old kid, from there.

“Our official policy is that we do not encourage our children to be sent into broken homes. [Madonna's] relationships may negatively affect the adoption of Mercy“, claimed a senior official from Malawi’s Ministry of Women and Child Welfare Development. She also noting her much talked about split from hubby Guy Ritchie, which may also cause a refusal. The official also added, “The news she is linked to another woman’s husband and a young man less than half her age makes us question her morals“.

Simon Chisale, Malawi’s child welfare chief have marked in a recent interview that there are certain things like morality and ethics that play an important role in adoption process. The Malawi adoption officials are not very pleased with the way the 50 year old pop diva flashed her relationship with Luz in the recent time. Madonna has earlier in 2006 adopted David Banda from the same country.

“We do not only look at the material issues, but also the moral standing of prospective adoptive parents, because we do not want our children’s morals to be corrupted”, Chisale remarked.

Kerry Katona snorts cocaine every day to deal with marriage failure pain

Kerry Katona snorts cocaine every day to deal with marriage failure painKerry Katona has turned to drugs to blot out the pain of her failing marriage to Mark Croft, it has emerged.

According to a pal, the former Atomic Kitten star is snorting life-threatening mounds of cocaine everyday, reports the News of the World.

The pal said that the mother of four young children star also binges on amphetamines and anti-depressants.

And their destructive relationship has taken her to the brink of suicide as well, the pal added.

Katona told friends: “Cocaine is the only way I can function. It’s the only way I can get this sorted.”

A pal said: “Kerry is completely addicted to drugs. It is worse than ever and she is close to the edge. She takes them all day every day. She simply can’t cope without her fix.”

Katona, previously outed as a cocaine-user by her own mother Sue, claimed that she has been clean of drugs since she recovered from her split with former husband Brian McFadden, the father of her eldest children Molly, seven, and Lilly-Sue, six.

However, friends have revealed she has been dependent on cocaine since June last year following the death of her stepdad Arnie Ferrier.

One said: “When he died it really affected her and she turned to drugs then. It’s tragic. Kerry doesn’t have an off button.”

Pals revealed Katona’s cocaine intake rocketed earlier this month after a confrontation with Croft about her financial situation.

Brande Roderick of “The Celebrity Apprentice 2″

Brande Roderick of “The Celebrity Apprentice 2″Brande Roderick led her team and took it to the top this week on The Celebrity Apprentice season 2. In every existing ways the women’s team surpassed the men’s. Besides raising a lot more money than the men’s team, they successfully created a very beautiful store as the ladies gelled. And this is not the first win for them - the women’s team have won three weeks in a row and show no signs to stop. Roderick was a amazingly strong challenger right from the beginning and every player have by now started to take her very seriously.

During the early days, Brande Roderick had some fights with Annie Duke. But with the win, things have started sailing pretty smoothly. She gives a heed to the fact that the men’s team has a probable chance to win once before the teams get rocked up.

Roderick was excited to know that Donald Trump was a fan of hers and instantly made up her mind to take part in the show. The celebrity mentioned that there will be more cat fights coming up in the show. “You’re going to see a lot of laughs and you’re going to see a lot of heartfelt things. I think it’s the whole package. You’re going to be entertained all around”, she added.

Roderick, who is involved with California Police Youth Charities, said she was introduced in this work through her husband. Brande Roderick’s husband worked as a celebrity adviser for a long time. She and her husband had been working with kids for the past 5 years. “We did a program with the Chargers where we bring ten kids every single home game and we tailgate for them, play ball with them, cook for them and then we take them to the game. So we put that program together. I just get to see firsthand what this money does for these kids. They’re kids that would never have the chance to go to college or go to a Charger game or have these after school programs if it wasn’t for CPYC paying for these kinds of programs. It’s pretty exciting to see the difference in the lives of these kids”, she said.

Jesus Luz and Madonna Calls it an End

Jesus Luz and Madonna Calls it an EndAccording to reliable sources, Jesus Luz and Madonna have called it an end. The most talked about romance of the century may have just finally run it’s course. Madonna is through with the relationship and does not want to continue.

Nobody knows the reason yet. Some are saying that may be the pop diva is planning to adopt another child. A close source mentioned that Madonna is jealous of younger women hitting on Luz and hence she decided to call off the relationship.
“She was drawn to Jesus. But it was just a bit of fun and she’s enjoyed herself. But she is growing bored of the relationship and her family comes first. He would ruin her chances of adopting again. And the pictures of him with Luciana made her realize that he’ll be better suited to somebody his own age”, a reliable source mentioned.

The 22 year old Jesus Luz had been dating the 50 year old pop star for the past three months, after Madonna separated from her Director husband Guy Ritchie. The two met in Brazil during a photo shoot for W magazine last year.

The biggest question that now spurs is who Jesus is not going to date.

Vatican Closes Church Gates to Dan Brown’s Angels & Demons

Vatican Closes Church Gates to Dan Brown’s Angels & DemonsThe name Dan Brown became notorious among the Vatican circle after the swelling success of his book The Da Vinci Code. Due to its potrayal of Jesus as a human being who married Mary Magdalene and had children, the work was regarded by the Vatican an outrageous “offence against God”. Now, when the makers are ready to shoot its prequel Angels & Demons, the Vatican has disapproved of its filming on its grounds or in the premises of churches in Rome. Angels & Demons, published before The Da Vinci Code, has several important scenes located in these sacred places. However, the makers have been prohibited from using church premises as filmsets.

The story of Angels & Demons is centered on a scheme plotted by a group called the Illuminati, and its plan to replace the existing Pope with their selected person, and blow up the Vatican. Directed by Ron Howard, who also made The Da Vinci Code, the film stars Tom Hanks as the hero. The actor had appeared in the film version of The Da Vinci Code as the Harvard professor Robert Langdon. Two churches in Rome- Santa Maria del Popolo and Santa Maria della Vittoria- along with the Vatican feature as key locations in Angels & Demons. In the two churches, bodies of murdered cardinals are found. There are mysterious marks on the bodies, and the Vatican has said that they cannot allow shooting of such scenes within the churches. Archbishop Velasio De Paolis (head of the Vatican’s Prefecture for Economic Affairs) said, “It would be unacceptable to transform churches into film sets so that his blasphemous novels can be made into films in the name of business.” He has also mentioned a “boomerang effect”, which will draw attention for the film thus increasing its popularity.

To deal with the sets, the production team will be recreating the interiors of the Roman churches in their very own Hollywood. Exteriors of the churches and the surrounding streets, however, are original, as church officials couldn’t prevent the filmmakers from shooting these parts. The Da Vinci Code had been boycotted, but that could not stop the film from earning large-scale popularity both in USA and outside. It was a box office hit with a worldeide turnover of $760 million. Angels & Demons is set to be released worlwide on May 15, 2009.

“I’m a tabloid obsession” : Lindsay Lohan

“I’m a tabloid obsession” : Lindsay LohanIn a recent photo shoot for the cover of Nylon magazine, Lindsay Lohan stripped down to her bra and announced that she would be returning to acting very soon. In the interview that followed the photo shoot, Lohan said she had lots of ideas in the pipeline. The photo shoot was marked as the magazine’s tenth anniversary.

“I’m talking to [lots of people]. One is Sean Penn – I spoke to him again the other day. We’re trying to get Seth Rogen for this project, but Seth won’t call us back. So call us back, Seth, if you’re reading this!”, said Lohan.

Lohan also added that she has no regret about whatever she did in life from landing into unnecessary brushes with the law to spells in rehab and having a well-publicized relationship with Samantha Ronson that has only made her a tabloid obsession.

Following a last week’s incident of window smashing and heated argument with her partner Samantha Ronson police were called at their apartment. “There’s not much I can do about the fact that I’ve become a kind of tabloid obsession. I can’t change that”, the star said. She also added, “And yes, the websites, the gossip pages, and all of that stuff have hurt my career – they’re like the Burn Books of Hollywood… but I really don’t feel like I should have to prove myself to anyone because of living out my college years in the public eye. I’m glad everything happened the way it did”.

Lohan also spoke about Spears who like her earned a lot of fame as a child. “She’s marketed as an entertainer, which is what she is. Not necessarily as, like, an artist. And I respect that about her, because she doesn’t want to pretend”, she said.

Report: Zac Efron pulls out of “Footloose” remake

Report: Zac Efron pulls out of “Footloose” remakeZac Efron has pulled out of Paramount’s planned remake of “Footloose,” according to a new report because he fears being typecast as a cute song-and-dance man. The new “Footloose,” a remake of the 1984 Kevin Bacon classic, and is to be helmed by Kenny Ortega, who directed all three “High School Musicals.” Shooting was to begin this spring in Atlanta, with a targeted release date in 2010. The budget was well over $20 million.

But insiders told TheWrap that Efron had script approval on the movie and used a rewrite on the screenplay as the loophole to get out of his contract: “People had been working on this project since last July — we were all shocked.”

After starring in Disney’s first three “High School Musical” films, Zac is looking to show his full acting chops. While Disney is planning a “High School Musical 4,” Efron is not expected to be a part of it. He got a taste of more serious roles in guest parts on “NCIS” and “CSI: Miami,” and took on a starring role in “Me and Orson Welles,” a drama with Claire Danes, directed by Richard Linklater, in which he plays a Broadway actor who has a chance meeting with Welles in 1937. The film, scheduled for 2008, however has not yet been released.

Liam Neeson's Sister Breaks Silence on Natasha Richardson's Death

Liam Neeson's Sister Breaks Silence on Natasha Richardson's DeathIn the wake of Natasha Richardson's burial, Liam Neeson's sister Bernadette Sexton has opened up to the media about losing the film and stage actress. "We're completely bewildered and wish we could turn the clock back," she was quoted as telling reporters. "I've spoken to Liam but I'd rather not talk about it, it's too personal."

"Natasha was a wonderful friend, sister-in-law and auntie to my kids," Bernadette recalled. "She was just a warm, generous and lovely woman." Liam himself has not yet made a single statement for the media regarding the death of his wife. Natasha's family also remains silent on that matter.

Natasha Richardson passed away last Wednesday, March 18 after falling down while skiing at the Mont Tremblant Resort in the Canadian province of Quebec on Monday, March 16. The incident left her with a serious brain injury. She was 45 and survived by husband Liam Neeson and sons, Micheal Richard Antonio and Daniel Jack.

Following her death, the lights of Broadway's theaters were dimmed for a minute on Thursday night, March 19 to honor Natasha. A private wake was held the following day at the American Irish Historical Society in N.Y.C. Natasha's body was laid to rest at St. Peter's Cemetery in Millbrook, N.Y. on Sunday afternoon, March 22.

Brad Pitt out of film due to his good looks

Brad Pitt out of film due to his good looksHollywood superstar Brad Pitt is out of upcoming movie State of Play as the director on hindsight felt he was too good-looking to play the role.

Pitt was originally to star in the big-screen thriller as a journalist but the actor quit during pre-production, citing concerns with the script, contactmusic.com reports.

Gladiator star Russell Crowe was roped in as a late replacement for Brad to star opposite actor Ben Affleck's character of a Congressman in the film.

Director Kevin McDonald is convinced that Crowe's rough features are more suited to the role.

"In a way, I was lucky it didn't work out with Brad. The relationship between the journalist and the politician was meant to be between somebody who feels inferior, who's a bit of a schlump, who kind of can't get a girlfriend, and somebody he's looking up to and admires his polished politician friend," he said.

"That is not the dynamic of a Brad Pitt. He's not looking up to anyone thinking 'Oh, I wish I could have your girlfriend'," he added.

Deepika Padukone talks about modeling and Ranbir KapoorNew Delhi: Actoress Deepika Padukone was in the capital yet again to extend her support to the on-going Delhi Fashion Week and Wills Lifestyle India Fashion Week.

CNN-IBN's Sushant Mehta caught up with the model turned actor.

Sushant Mehta:You must be feeling really special. You walked the ramp for Tarun Talihani and now for Rina Dhakar.

Deepika Padukone: You know there is really no thought behind it. Fiama is my brand, and I will always be here for them.

Sushant Mehta: You are quite the show stopper. You must take some credit yourself.

Deepika Padukone: Show stopper or not, I have always enjoyed walking the ramp. It's great to be back and meet all my designer friends, models, makeup artists and everyone whom I started off with.

Sushant Mehta:Have you ever goofed up fashionwise. We know you are a model and everything, but have you ever goofed up?

Deepika Padukone: I don't think we should be discussing now because I have a show to go to now. Yeah, but so far no disasters on the ramp.

Sushant Mehta: Do you give Ranbir advice on what to wear because men are casual dressers, any thing like that?

Deepika Padukone:No, I think he can take care of himself.

Sushant Mehta:What do you like him in, western, Indian?

Deepika Padukone: I thing he can carry anything well.

Ciara's 'Love Sex Magic' Music Video Feat. Justin Timberlake

Ciara's 'Love Sex Magic' Music Video Feat. Justin TimberlakeFull length music video in support of Ciara's new single "Love Sex Magic" has finally made its way out. Directed by Diane Martel, it captures Ciara showing her wild side with her collaborator Justin Timberlake, who plays her boy toy.

Starting with Ciara and Justin in silhouettes, the video moves on giving more steamy scenes involving them as lovers. One of the scenes has Justin sitting on a chair while Ciara is crawling in front of him.

Explaining Justin's cameo part in the video, Ciara previously shared, "He's my toy, in a sense, and pretty much the majority of the video." Adding to Ciara's statement, Justin said, "She's basically using me as a prop."

"Love Sex Magic" is included in Ciara's forthcoming third studio album "Fantasy Ride", slated for U.S. release on May 5. The song has been released on iTunes since March 17 and has so far peaked at number 4 on Billboard Hot R&B/Hip-Hop Songs chart.

Birth Certificate Reveals M.I.A.'s Baby's Name

Birth Certificate Reveals M.I.A.'s Baby's NameThe full name of M.I.A.'s baby boy has been revealed through a birth certificate obtained by TMZ. It is mentioned in the legal paper that the infant is named Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman.

The birth certificate, moreover, reveals that Ikhyd was born at 13:31 P.M. on February 11. He was born at Cedars Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles.

Earlier this month, M.I.A. was forced to post a short message on her MySpace, denying reports claiming she named her newborn son Ickitt. "My baby is not called Ickitt, Pickit or Lickit thank you very much to all the Hollywood press," she wrote at that time.

The singer then went on writing, "He's a baby, he don't need press! I didn't release the baby name because I didn't think it was news!!!! But I will be back with something newsworthy soon, till then go pick on Apple, Satchel and Moon Unit. Lots of love stickit!!"

Ikhyd Edgar Arular Bronfman is M.I.A. first child with boyfriend Benjamin Brewer of band The Exit.

Bless this 'Big Love' mess

Bless this 'Big Love' messHBO's Emmy-free and too long under-appreciated “Big Love” came out of its yearlong, writers-strike-created hiatus like the buffed-up guy tired of eating sand.

But instead of going for fireballs and kidnappings (OK, there were a few of those, but they were totally incidental), cancer scares and intra-cast murder attempts (well, yes, there were those too, but again, not the point), creators Mark V. Olsen and Will Scheffer took their strange and startling American fable to new heights, and depths.

All of which came to a DefCon 1 "conclusion" in the season finale Sunday night. Oh, there were several moments of "closure" in the final minutes, but that was just the writers handing a bit of narrative Xanax to keep viewers from developing unsightly nervous tics while they wait to see what will really happen next season.
And not just in terms of plot. "Big Love" has become richer in tone and message. What had been quaint -- the mob-like machinations of the compound at Juniper Creek -- grew dark and murderous; what had been solid and structured -- the Henricksons' prefab polygamous corner of the universe -- collapsed into chaos.

While last season examined the complexities of marriage and family and love, this season dealt more with the separate, perplexing and often lonely lives each one of us leads amid all the noise and haste of modern daily life.

In episode after episode, the writers and actors pried apart the multihued twist of characters with the precision of bomb squad technicians. Margene (Ginnifer Goodwin) moved from arm candy to entrepreneur; Barb (Jeanne Tripplehorn) admitted her deep attachment to church and community even over the bonds of family; Sarah (Amanda Seyfried) had a miscarriage and teetered on the verge of collapse before righting herself.

And Nicki (Chloe Sevigny), poor Nicki, the buttoned-down sociopath everyone has loved to hate. Finally she, and we, came to grips with what lurked beneath it all -- she was born to parents with "murder in their hearts," parents who forced her to give up a child in a desperate attempt to flee the compound. Meanwhile, Bill (Bill Paxton) watched the fortress of women he had so carefully constructed around him morph into an opposing army of righteous indignation.
t wasn't a perfect season. The story line involving Ana (Branka Katic) joining the family as a fourth wife fizzled into the world's quickest divorce -- she just walked out of the house never to be seen again. A reprise of the sexual tension between eldest son Benny (Douglas Smith) and Margene was a dud, and Teenie (Jolean Wejbe) seems to have just vanished into thin air.

Even so, "Big Love" is like no other show on television, possibly ever, and polygamy, though fascinating, is not the reason. Instead, it simply provides the odd and irregularly sized frame, the only thing big enough to accommodate a portrait so complicated that, left to its own devices, it would soon claim the entire wall, the entire room.

Where else do you see characters regularly engaged in sincere and supplicant prayer? What other show respectfully portrays the soul-rattling fear that a transgression from religious belief can cause in a modern American? Where else are the power struggles of marriage examined without apology or laugh track, or the contrast between male and female friendship portrayed without sentimentality or agenda?

What other show consistently examines the sticky and complicated mess of love and fear, loyalty and ennui, generosity and spite that holds most families together?

Oh, and it was nice to see Harry Dean Stanton pick up a guitar again, if only for a minute.

'Torino,' 'Marley' tie at overseas boxoffice

'Torino,' 'Marley' tie at overseas boxofficeIn generally mild boxoffice action across most overseas markets, Warner Bros.' "Gran Torino" and 20th Century Fox's "Marley & Me" tied on the weekend for the No. 1 spot on the international circuit, with each title grossing a relatively modest $8.8 million.

The figures for each were the lowest weekend international grosses for a No. 1 attraction so far this year and pale on a per-market basis with the No. 1 boxoffice recorded by local-language films in France and in Germany.

Powered by Fete du Cinema festivities in France, the market experienced an exceptionally strong weekend.

Opening at No. 1 was Studio Canal's "Coco," a comedy starring Morocco-born stand-up comedian Gad Elmaleh, who also makes his debut as a director. Described as "a comedy about money," the title character is an arriviste planning a lavish bar mitzvah for his son. Debut gross was a huge $8.5 million from 565 sites, or more than $15,000 per screen, representing about 46% of the total market action.

With a smash No. 1 opening in Germany was Constantin Film's "Mannersache," a comedy about two childhood friends co-scripted by and co-starring Martio Barth and Dieter Tappert, which tallied $4.4 million from 631 sites. (The Weinstein Co.'s "The Reader," starring Oscar winner Kate Winslet, rolled up a Germany cume of $13.2 million after a No. 3 weekend gross of $1 million from 493 situations in the market.)

The most notable Hollywood studio newcomer was Universal's "Duplicity," the caper film with Julia Roberts and Clive Owen portraying corporate spies pulling a con on their employers. Opening in 11 overseas markets day-and-date with its No. 3 domestic premiere, "Duplicity" earned $4.2 million from 998 screens. It ranks No. 5 overall on the weekend.

"Torino," starring Clint Eastwood, played 2,500 screens in 38 markets. "Marley & Me," which claimed the No. 1 spot in the prior weekend, also played in 38 markets but at 2,909 locations. A Brazil bow for "Torino" produced $409,000 from 104 screens, which the distributor describes as the biggest market opening for an Eastwood title. "Torino" held at No. 2 in France and in Italy and at No. 1 in Spain. Overseas cume stands at $60 million.

"Marley," the David Frankel-helmed family drama about an obstreperous dog, opened in seven markets, notably finishing at No. 1 for a second straight stanza in the U.K. with $2.9 million from 476 screens. Cume stands at $61.9 million.

Finishing at No. 2 on the weekend was Paramount's Watchmen," from director Zack Taylor, raised its overseas gross total to $60.1 million in its third stanza overseas thanks to a $7 million weekend from 4,338 spots in 58 territories.

The No. 3 title, DreamWorks Animation/Paramount's "Monsters vs. Aliens," made its overseas debut in Russian and the Ukraine a week before to its domestic bow. The 3-D animated film finished at No. 1 in both markets, registering a total of $6.9 million from 632 spots.

At 755 screens at 560 sites in Russia, the tally was $6.6 million, the fourth-largest market opener for an animation title. The gross was, per Paramount, 15% ahead of last year's "Kung Fu Panda" and 80% bigger than that of Oscar winner "WALL-E." Ukraine tally was $350,000 from 72 screens.

The 115 3-D screens played in Russia produced a $17,000 per-screen average, "well ahead of the $6,700 average for conventional 2-D screens," Paramount said. All "Monsters vs. Aliens" showings at three Imax venues were sold out. In all, 32% of the total business came from 3-D venues, which comprised only 15% of the total prints.
