Michael B. Jordan is one of the most eligible bachelors in Hollywood -- that's right, ladies, he's single! But if you want to position yourself as the gal of his dreams, you'd better be ready to welcome a sizable brood, because the actor tells Wonderwall he wants a "big family." But for now, the 27-year-old is focused on work, which includes moonlighting as a photographer. As he prepares to show off his shots in Austin on Oct. 1 at Canon's PIXMA PRO City Senses Pop-Up Gallery -- an exhibit featuring photos shot in dedication to the Texas capital -- Michael dished about slipping on spandex to play superhero Johnny Storm/The Human Torch in "The Fantastic Four 2," his craziest fan encounter, and his dating trials and tribulations.

Wonderwall: You told Oprah on her "Oprah's Next Chapter" show that you'd never had a real girlfriend. Is that still the case? Are you still single?
"I am single. Just to clarify, I did have a girlfriend. I had just gotten out of a relationship at the time of that interview. But before that I had never had a real one. But I am still very much single."


WW: At this stage in your life, would you be ready to settle down when that lady does come into your life?
"Marriage is pretty far out there. But both of my parents are still together. They've been together for 30 years, so family is really important to me. I always dreamed of having a big family. So that's definitely something to look forward to in the future. But I told myself I would focus on my craft right now. You only have your 20s once. Sacrifice now and put the hard work and the time in and then things will be a little bit easier in the next phase."


WW: What has been your craziest fan moment so far?
"I think years ago when I was on a soap opera. Soap opera fans are pretty hardcore. The craziest thing I ever got was a letter from a guy in jail that watched soap operas all day every day. I got a letter and picture from him, which was a little creepy. Years later that image in burned in my head!"



WW: You will be in the new "Fantastic Four," which means a spandex costume. How did you feel about that?
"How did I feel about wearing spandex? The costume part wasn't that bad. I think we did a really good job at making it modern, new, fresh without going to the cheesy superhero outfits. We didn't take the easy way out at all. So I didn't mind it so much."


WW: Chris Evans played the role of The Human Torch previously. What advice did he give you?
"It's so hard to give advice when it comes to a role like this because at the end of the day, we all do what we do. He is great at what he does as an actor. It's not something to imitate. You just have to give your own take. He told me 'I think you're going to do a great job. Go out there and just have fun.' That's the approach that I took: Just enjoy it and have a good time. Don't overthink it."


WW: "Creed," a spin-off of the "Rocky" franchise where you play Apollo Creed's boxer grandson, is coming up. We imagine getting in boxer shape has only magnified your sex appeal. What is it like to have women swooning over you so much?
"I haven't been out that much. I've been to myself just working out and getting in shape quietly. I really haven't gotten all that much attention. But it's all right. It comes with it I guess. It's not too shabby!"

rs_560x415-141001055723-1024.Real-Housewives-Of-Atlanta-JR-100114_copy

The Real Housewives of Atlanta is back with some new faces mixing it up among our favorite Georgia Peaches. Cynthia Bailey, Kandi Burruss, NeNe Leakes, Kenya Moore and Phaedra Parks all return with "media maven" Claudia Jordan as a new fulltime Housewife. Porsha Williams will recur as a friend of the Housewives alongside newcomer actress-singer Demetria McKinney. The new season, which is sure to be filled with plenty of drama if the trailer above is any indication, kicks off on Sunday, November 9 at 8 p.m. A new season of Fashion Queens follows at 11:30 p.m.

So what's up with the ladies? NeNe has her fashion line and Broadway debut—she'll star opposite Keke Palmer in Cinderella. Meanwhile, Kandi and Todd look to expand their family, Kenya focuses on her producing career and is still thinking about a baby and Cynthia is back and stronger than ever in terms of her health and marriage. If you've been following the news, you know all about Apollo Nida, Phaedra's husband. This season Phaedra is focused on her career and two boys as Apollo faces years behind bars. In the trailer above, there are allegations of affairs and some tense moments for the lawyer.

Newcomer Claudia is a TV and radio host who recently moved from Los Angeles to Atlanta and pals with Kenya. Porsha has a new gig with Dish Nation. You may recognize RHOA's new face Demetria from her work on Tyler Perry's House of Payne and Devious Maids.

After last season's explosive reunion, where do these ladies stand? NeNe and Cynthia are still at odds, Mama Joyce and Todd's mother are still going at it and it looks like NeNe will clash with the new Housewife.

The Real Housewives of Atlanta premieres Sunday, Nov. 9 at 8 p.m. on Bravo. Fashion Queens kicks off its new season at 11:30 p.m. that same night.

Ariana-Grande-diva-accusations-665x385

In a new endorsement deal, Ariana Grande will try to do for bottled water what Diet Coke and Pepsi endorsers Taylor Swift and Beyonce are doing for soda: Give it some pop.
The rising singing star will be the face of a new campaign for a small but growing functional water brand called Wat-aah! that targets kids.
"We've aimed to make water cool and exciting to kids," said Rose Cameron, a former ad agency employee who founded the brand in 2008. Music, she said, is a "big component of that," adding that "what works for Coke and Pepsi I believed could also work for water."
The campaign, expected to launch next year, will include outdoor, print and digital ads in teen and lifestyle publications. The agency is Berlin Cameron United. Ewen Cameron, the agency's chairman, is Ms. Cameron's husband.
Ms. Grande has taken an undisclosed ownership stake in the brand and will serve as creative
and strategic adviser, Ms. Cameron said. She has also agreed to talk about the brand on social media, where the brand hopes to gain the attention of what Ms. Cameron estimated to be her nearly 60 million followers on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.
"I love drinking water and I want to inspire my fans to do the same. Now as a partner in the company, I am excited to share Wat-aah! with everyone," Ms. Grande said in a statement.
The brand is seeking to grab share from sodas and other sugary drinks with a health appeal that promises "no sugar, no calories, no bad stuff." The marketing strategy is fueled by kid-friendly, colorful branding.

Being compared to Mariah Carey? One less problem! Since she broke out as a recording artist with the 2013 song "The Way," former Nickelodeon star Ariana Grande has gotten endless musical comparisons to similarly multi-octaved vocalist Mariah Carey.
This doesn't bother her, in fact, the "Problem" singer, 21, enjoys hearing it.
"Mariah has been a huge influence on me since I was a little girl," the new Wat-Aah! water bottle spokeswoman exclusively tells Us Weekly. "I've even done a cover of one of her songs. I don't think there are any negatives to being compared to one of the greatest vocalists of all time. It's honestly a great honor."
Though she's now being compared to music greats, Grande isn't the only famous member of her
family.
Her older half-brother Frankie Grande was recently a contestant on season 16 of Big Brother, and Ariana live tweeted the reality series' episodes. Contestant Derrick Levasseur went on to win the season.
"I'm his biggest fan, and I know how much it meant for him to be able to be on one of his favorite shows," she tells Us. "But there's also definitely been times I've wanted to jump through the screen and just tell him 'Do this instead!' or 'Backdoor him!'"
Frankie learned about the painful news of his Grandpa Frank's passing in July, but decided to stay on the show.
"He's my best friend — I miss him so much and am so excited to have him back home soon," Ariana continued. "I was very proud when he told everybody ab
out his career and what he does and about his family. I admire his strength and fearlessness! I also admire his humor and his inability to take himself or anything seriously. I think it's a really important trait that too many people lack."

5 3 Things We Learned About Leighton Meester From Our November Issue
  • It's still a pinch me moment that she got to play Curly's wife in the Broadway Of Mice & Men revival. 'Man, I really lucked out, the fact that I could spend six months on this compact, beautiful story that never grows old.'
  • She doesn't regret making a record with Robin Thicke in 2009. 'It was fun, but it wasn't at all me. I guess I can look back and say everything happens because you learn from it and you're better for it.'
  • Life is more important than just the work. 'My values have shifted greatly in terms of what I find important. It's my family, my friends and having a personal life. Those are the things that need nurturing.'



    6 3 reasons we can’t wait to get our hands on Leighton Meester’s ‘Heartstrings’

    Leighton Meester is a month away from releasing her debut studio album – and we couldn’t be more excited. You may have heard Leighton featuring on the major track from Cobra Starship ‘Good Girls Go Bad’, or her contributions to the soundtrack of Country Strong, but this is where this Gossip Girl makes her big break into the music industry.

    So far, only the single ‘Heartstrings’ has been revealed, but here are just more than a few reasons why getting excited for its expected release on October 27th is no mistake.

    5. Leighton gives an unreal live performance

    We know how it is in the pop industry. Too often are today’s acts more auto-tune and computers than genuine talent, but here’s where you won’t be disappointed. Far from a manufactured voice, Leighton can really sing and her lives performances don’t stray too far from studio perfection.

    4. The silky smooth sound of ‘Heartstrings’

    It’s cool, it’s chill – it the music equivalent of a trendy wine bar with dim lighting and red carpet. Visualise that, and now – listen to it again.


    1. We can’t wait to see what our favourite Gossip Girl is going to do with her debut album.

    Leighton’s experience in the music industry has been pretty varied – from her country jams in Country Strong, to the electro-pop ‘Your Love’s a Drug’ – so we can’t be totally sure what to expect from her now, other than what the sound of Heartstrings suggests. Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.

    Adrianne Palicki has been discussing her role as Bobbi Morse in Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D., calling the character “badass” and revealing that the possibility of her transitioning to The Avengers movies has been discussed.

    Palicki will first play the Head of Hydra Security in forthcoming S.H.I.E.L.D. episode ‘A Hen in the Wolf House’ and told us “Bobbi Morse is another badass character. She was been working with S.H.I.E.L.D. for a bit… She gets along with the team very well.”

    In the comics, the character of course becomes Mockingbird, marries Hawkeye, and joins up with the Avengers, and Palicki said that the chance to potentially join that big screen team was part of the appeal when she signed up for the role.

    “Absolutely – that was one of the things that was discussed when I was coming on for the part, and you know, we’ll see what happens. It’s such a nice world that we live in that crossover can happen so often now which in the past it never really did so, to see these worlds come together on the small screen and the big screen is really cool.”

    "Marvel's Agents of SHIELD" fans, prepare to meet the man who helped shape Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) into a HYDRA traitor. Zap2it can exclusively reveal that viewers will be introduced to Sen. Maynard Ward, Grant's abusive older brother, in Season 2, episode 6, "A Fractured Rose." Better yet, the elder Ward will be played by "White Collar" star Tim Dekay.

    Could Maynard be the "senator with deep pockets" Gen. Glenn Talbot (Adrian Pasdar) was referring to in Tuesday's (Sept. 30) episode, "Heavy in the Head"? It certainly seems likely, but if so, why is he anti-SHIELD and anti-Coulson? Is he trying to get to Ward, or does he have an even more nefarious purpose? Certainly Maynard can't be a good guy.

    Um, wut???



    Ladies and gentlemen, there’s just no escaping from the phenomenon known as twerking. Even Mastodon took a tongue-in-cheek approach to rippling glutes in their new video for ‘The Motherload.’ In a new interview with Mastodon drummer / vocalist Brann Dailor, the musician explains the concept behind the video and addresses the sexist criticism that videos featuring twerking receive.

    From the band’s sixth studio album, ‘Once More ‘Round the Sun,’ Mastodon chose ‘The Motherload’ as the disc’s third official single. The ‘Motherload’ video is hysterical and extremely entertaining for many reasons, which Dailor addresses in an interview with Pitchfork.

    “The only concept was we wanted to start off as a sort of parody of a ‘90s heavy metal video,” Dailor begins. “All those videos from the early ‘90s had that same look: some kind of esoteric imagery, sort of out of focus, something creepy or weird. Marilyn Manson, Metallica, Nirvana, they all had the same kind of look to their videos. We wanted to do that, and I guess I thought that maybe people would be concerned that it wasn’t very imaginative if it was some kind of sh—y ‘90s video. Then all of a sudden, twerking started happening, and it kind of went from there. I just wanted to make something that was bizarre—that would confuse people. I also thought to myself, what’s the most bizarre thing, or what’s something people would say completely does not belong in a Mastodon video? And the twerking was sort of what I came up with.”

    Dailor also spoke about the importance of the female dancers feeling comfortable during the video shoot, “With the video itself, we wanted to make sure that the women that were there were in charge and that they were having fun. They made the video what it is. If it wasn’t for them and their talent and going out and doing flips and splits and just bringing it, it wouldn’t be great. All of them are forces of nature. It was amazing to meet them and amazing to watch them do their thing. There’s a scene where the garage door starts to open, and Khristine Moore, who plays the ‘queen,’ is there. It gives me chills when I watch that, she just looks so awesome.”

    The Guardian recently pressed an article calling the video sexist, which Dailor admitted to being upset by. “I’m really upset,” begins Dailor. “I don’t know. The last thing that I wanted to do was come on and be defensive, because I don’t feel like I should have to defend it. It’s a music video and it’s really not supposed to be something that gets people this upset because this was really a fun thing that doesn’t really mean too much. It’s not to be taken so seriously.”

    Check out the full interview over at Pitchfork. Also, Mastodon are once again set to hit the road with Gojira and Kvelertak after the trio’s highly successful string of dates earlier in the year. Check out the full list of dates here.

    (For the unfamiliar, Mastodon are basically a modern version of Rush, only with lots more facial hair and tattoos. And all four members sing.)

    The video in question. Sir Mix-a-Lot would approve.

    One of these days, Marvel Studios will announce who will play Doctor Strange in their highly-anticipated Phase Three adventure. Until that day comes, all we have are rumors, with the latest unconfirmed report revealing that Ethan Hawke has been offered the title character.

    This Is Infamous claims that Marvel wasn't able to come to terms with Joaquin Phoenix, who has been in talks for the role since July. The studio reportedly offered the role to Ethan Hawke on Friday, which he accepted over the weekend, with negotiations currently happening for a six-picture deal.

    The report hasn't been confirmed by Marvel, but if it turns out to be true, Ethan Hawke will be reunited with Doctor Strange director Scott Derrickson, following their 2012 thriller Sinister. We reported in August that screenwriter Jon Spaihts has discarded all of the previous screenplay drafts, crafting a new tale that will not delve into Doctor Strange's origins, with Stephen Strange already established as the Sorcerer Supreme. Ethan Hawke reportedly "lands within the right range" for where Marvel wants this character to be when he's introduced in Phase Three.

    We reported last month that Joaquin Phoenix is hesitant to sign a long-term deal with Marvel that would include several movies over a number of years. It's also worth noting that This Is Infamous is the same site that claimed Jack Huston and Jon Hamm were contenders for Doctor Strange at different points in time.

    Doctor Strange will start filming in May 2015 at Pinewood-Shepperton Studios in London, with the studio aiming for a summer 2016 release. Do you think Ethan Hawke is a good fit as the Sorcerer Supreme? Chime in with your thoughts below.

    Doctor Strange is in development . The film is directed by Scott Derrickson.

    1412184897_lena-dunham-467

    Lena Dunham has built her persona on being a no-holds-barred writer, actress, and director, willing to put a comedic or critical spin on the most personal or off-limits topics and bringing them to light. While promoting her memoir Not That Kind of Girl: A Young Woman Tells You What She's "Learned," on Monday, Sept. 29, however, she revealed that there are some subjects even she has trouble addressing.

    "There were a few things in this book that I was terrified to put into the world," Dunham, 28, said in an interview with NPR's Terry Gross on Fresh Air. "The chapter about date rape in the book was a really, really terrifying thing for me to put into the world."



    "It was a painful experience physically and emotionally, and one I spent a long time trying to reconcile," the Girls creator continued. "At the time that it happened, it wasn't something that I was able to be honest about. I was able to share pieces, but I sort of used the lens of humor, which has always been my default mode, to try to talk around it."

    With her new book, the Oberlin College grad has found her voice and was able to talk about the rape. "I said I spent so much time scared," she said. "I spent so much time ashamed, I don't feel that way anymore. And it's not because of my job, it's not because of my boyfriend, it's not because of feminism - though all those things helped - it's because I told the story. And I still feel like myself and I feel less alone."

    The Emmy-nominated Dunham, who has been dating fun. guitarist Jack Antonoff for two years, went on to explain that she didn't come to terms with the assault until long after it took place.

    "I think I had just felt that something was very wrong," she said of her immediate understanding. "I had felt that something had happened and I remember thinking 'Can I ever be the same?'… I was at a party, drunk, waiting for attention -- and somehow that felt like such a shameful starting-off point that I didn't know how to reconcile what had come after. But I knew that it wasn't right and I knew in some way that this experience had been forced on me."

    "When I shared it with my best friend and she used the term 'you were raped' at the time, I sort of laughed at her and thought like, you know, what an ambulance-chasing drama queen," Dunham continued. "[I] later felt this incredible gratitude for her for giving me that, giving me that gift of that kind of certainty that she had. I think that a lot of times when I felt at my lowest about it, those words in some way actually lifted me up because I felt that somebody was justifying the pain of my experience."

    The Happy Christmas star told Gross that the trauma affected the rest of her time in college.

    "I didn't really go to anymore parties," Dunham explained. "I just stopped going… I basically didn't have a drink for the rest of college… I really removed myself from that world. I don't know if I would've told you at the time, 'Oh, I'm doing this to keep myself safe,' but obviously in hindsight… I basically removed myself from the social world as I'd known it. I spent a lot of time, which I talk about in the book, trying to figure out what my sexual preferences were and whether they in any way aligned with this experience I had had, whether there was any part of me that had, in quotes, 'wanted that.' It took me a long time of self-examination, hearing about other people's sort of sexual evolutions and realizing, oh, that's not something that happens to everyone. And when it does happen, they're allowed to mourn it and feel pain about it - hearing that helped me."

    Sons of Anarchy: Walton Goggins Tells Us About That Kiss




    Guess who's back?

    Tuesday's episode of Sons of Anarchy featured the return of Venus Van Dam, the transgender escort played by Justified's Walton Goggins in each of the FX drama's last two seasons. But this time things went to a whole new level.

    When Jax (Charlie Hunnam) needed to track down the wife of a preacher the club had killed, he called on Venus to help. (Turns out the dead man was one of Venus' frequent clients.) According to Goggins, coming back for Sons' final season was a no-brainer. "I look for any opportunity to put on high heels honestly," Goggins tells TVGuide.com with a laugh.

    But Jax & Co. were surprised to learn over the course of the episode just how friendly Venus and fellow club member Tig (Kim Coates) had become since the last time we saw her. In fact, when Tig ended up on the wrong end of a shotgun during their adventure, it was Venus he wanted by his side. And as the two chatted, Tig eventually pulled Venus in for a kiss.

    "Tig was in a place where he needed someone he could depend on and he called for the person who understood him better than anyone," Goggins says. "Tig instigated [the kiss] and I think it was a line that Venus wasn't willing to cross in Season 5 with him, but their relationship went in a different direction and they became very close friends. And when intimacy is in the room, more often than not, romance follows, no matter who it is. It's no different for someone in the LGBT community as it is for a heterosexual. That's what I thought was so inspiring about that for me."

    Although Goggins admits that Venus was scared at first ("The hesitation was, 'Oh my God, I have feelings for this guy, and is this really happening? Do I want to cross this line? Because I don't know if I can stop if I do cross it,'" he says), he says it's important to understand the bond Tig and Venus share — one that has mostly developed off-screen.

    "Wounded people attract wounded people," Goggins says. "When you have been alone in the world and you find someone who makes you feel less alone in a positive way — regardless if that's man, a woman or a transgender — that's the person that you call home. What [creator Kurt Sutter] was able to do was measure it out in significant moments so that you felt the history between these two people and you felt the countless nights they've shared a bottle of champagne sitting on Venus' deck just talking about life. When you have someone who understands your pain and you understand someone else's pain, that's what it's all about."

    And the relationship may not stop there. Goggins will return again in this season's 10th episode. Can we expect even more intimate moments for Venus and Tig? Whatever happens, it certainly made an impression on Goggins.

    "It was the one of the most cathartic, one of the most important things I've ever done as an artist in 22 years," he says. "It was one of those moments that you do this for. It was sublime and what it says about Venus and Tig is as beautiful and poetic as anything I've ever seen. You'll see them in a way you've never seen them before."

    Sons of Anarchy airs Tuesdays at 10/9c on FX. What did you think of Tig and Venus' liplock?

    The Sims 4 is getting three big additions in as many months, developer Electronic Arts just announced. The first, launching today, brings ghost Sims back into the mix. Next month, the game will get swimming pools. And come December, Sims will get some new careers. All will be free for Sims 4 players.

    There's some other stuff coming to The Sims 4 before the year is out as well. Alongside the ghosts that are arriving today, for instance, EA is also adding a set of Star Wars-themed costumes for the Halloween season and several new eye colors for Sims. EA is also making a handful of new cheats available. Sims 4 players can get the new stuff today by simply downloading the latest patch for the game through Origin. As with the ghosts, all this other stuff is free if you already own The Sims 4.

    EA didn't give an exact date for either of the next two additions, nor did they specify what additional careers will be added in the December update. And there's still no word on whether The Sims 4 will be getting new toddlers at some point in the future. As for the burning question of a Mac version of The Sims 4, all they had to say was: "We know our players on Mac are looking to hear more. We are working on it. When we have more to share, we'll bring the news to you right here."

    What stood out to me in Franklin's description is the fact that ghost Sims carry over certain traits depending on the way they died. If a Sim went up in flames, for instance, he or she will try to start some new fires in the afterlife. So be careful not to upset these ghosts—unless you're looking to make some more, that is, which is totally valid as well. A Sim that died from a particular emotion (anger, embarrassment, and hysteria are the three deadly ones in The Sims 4 so far), meanwhile, will radiate that emotion and affect the living Sims around them.

    (...) Read More At Source


    Despite their otherworldly abilities, ghost Sims are still subjected to the same household limitations as living ones. That means you can have a maximum of eight playable Sims in a particular household. Nonplayable ghosts, meanwhile, go about their business the same way that living NPCs do once they come out of the tombstone at night. Franklin noted that it's technically possible, therefore, to create a world in The Sims 4 filled entirely with ghosts. Killing all of them might be tricky, though. So if you're anything like me and want to get started on a post-apocalyptic Sims wasteland, check out our guide on how to kill in The Sims 4.

    Damn you EA, pulling me back to the flop franchise and succeeding.

    Talk about harsh. Chrissy Teigen apparently didn’t like Ariana Grande’s ‘SNL’ debut on Sept. 27 — she took to Twitter to call out someone in cat ears . . . and it sounds like she was talking to the ‘Problem’ singer.

    While we absolutely loved Ariana Grande‘s performance (and skit) on Saturday Night Live, not everyone was a fan.

    Chrissy apparently watched the performance on Monday. She tweeted




    During Ariana’s performance of “Break Free” and “Love Me Harder” during SNL, she wore her hair in a perfect updo, and wore a cat-ear headband.

    Chrissy immediately got attacked on social media by Ariana fans who clearly picked up the fact that she was dissing the singer. An hour later, she tweeted a response to those tweets:






    It seems low for Chrissy to take a dig at Ariana, especially now when she’s been attacked recently for dissing her fans.

    Jennifer Lopez may be 45 years old but she's proving age is just a number.

    The mom of two sat down with "The Insider With Yahoo" to address the haters that criticized her for acting too young in her music video for "Booty" featuring Iggy Azalea.

    "This is good for women," she insisted. "You have to know that you don't disappear after you're 28 years old. You can be here, you can be vital and young and sexy and feel good about yourself."

    And Jennifer should definitely feel good about herself. Her body is looking better than ever. So how does she do it? Exercise and diet, just like everybody else.

    "Nobody can escape the hard work that it takes to get results," she explained. "All of us have to work hard at it and I definitely have to."

    Update: Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s “Cheek to Cheek” was indeed this past week’s #1 album.

    Billboard confirms that “Cheek to Cheek” debuts atop its Billboard 200 album sales chart on the strength of 131,000 first week sales. That total narrowly tops the 130,000 moved by Kenny Chesney’s #2 “The Big Revival” and 127,000 pushed by Barbra Streisand’s #2 “Partners.”

    alt-Js “This is All Yours” follows in fourth place with 68,000 sales, while Pentatonix’s “PTX, Volume III” claims fifth place on the strength of 46,000.

    Other top ten albums include Chris Brown’s “X” (#6, 37,000), “Guardians of the Galaxy: Awesome Mix, Volume 1″ (#7, 30,000), Joe Bonamassa’s “Different Shades of Blue” (#8, 26,000), Maroon 5′s “V” (#9, 26,000) and Jennifer Hudson’s “JHUD” (#10, 24,000).

    =========

    According to Hits Daily Double’s sales chart, last week’s incredibly close, three-way album sales race fell in favor of Tony Bennett and Lady Gaga’s “Cheek to Cheek.” Whether it will also claim the #1 position on the more authoritative Billboard 200 remains to be seen.

    The disparity between HITS’ data and Billboard’s data is never significant, but insofar as HITS Daily Double’s #1, #2 and #3 albums are separated by less than 3000 weekly sales, even a slight discrepancy could produce a different pecking order on the Billboard chart.

    As far as the HITS data goes, Bennett and Gaga’s “Cheek to Cheek” moved approximately 131,169 copies in its first week. Better than what was expected, the total gave the album a narrow lead over Kenny Chesney’s “The Big Revival.”

    The country veteran’s latest release opened to the tune of approximately 129,552 sales.

    Barbra Streisand’s “Partners,” last week’s #1 album, follows at #3. It moved approximately 128,218 copies in its second week of release.

    Regardless of how the Top 3 shakes out on Billboard, the occupants of the #4 and #5 positions seem clear. alt-J’s “This is All Yours” arrives at #4 on the strength of approximately 64,671 sales, while Pentatonix’s “PTX, Vol. III,” lands at #5 with sales of 47,326.

    Swedish Television SVT is to edit an old Swedish Pippi Longstocking tv-series to remove racist remarks ahead of its re-release on DVD.



    "Här kommer Pippi Långstrump" was originally broadcast in 1969 and contains phrases and stereotypes that could today be perceived as racist.

    The rights-owners of Pippi Longstocking have approved the changes, and the new version will also be shown on Swedish Television.

    "We will do all we can to not hurt people. So we think SVT is doing the right thing. Astrid Lindgren stood for completely other values than insulting other people", Nils Nyman, CEO of rights holders Saltkråkan AB told SVT.

    Amongst other scenes, they're editing scenes where Pippi calls her father a "n*****king" to "king" and completely deleting a scene where Pippi is immitating a Chinese person.

    For years, fans of Big Brother have wondered why “Evel” Dick Donato abruptly left Season 13 after just a few days. Now, the Season 8 winner has revealed the truth: He had just discovered he was HIV positive. Donato, who appears on the current season of Couples Therapy alongside on-again/off-again girlfriend Stephanie Rogness-Fischer, will make the revelation in Wednesday night’s episode.

    Earlier this week, “Evel” Dick Donato told People that he first found out about his HIV diagnosis while competing on Big Brother for the second time. The Season 13 producers called him into the Diary Room and told him that one of his pre-show blood tests had come back positive. The Big Brother doctor then gave him another blood exam that confirmed the news. Donato left the series immediately.

    “When they told me, I just went numb,” Donato said of his HIV diagnosis. “They had a car take me from CBS to my mother’s house. She was the first person I told.”


    “Evel” Dick Donato is still not sure how he contracted HIV. But, he figures he likely got the illness during unprotected sex with a woman. Rogness-Fischer has tested negative for the illness.


    “People are going to make assumptions about how I got it, and that’s okay,” Dick Donato said. “People are afraid to come forward because they're afraid of the stigma of HIV. I’m not gay and I've never stuck a needle in my arm, but at this point, it doesn't matter. We create a stigma around the disease that makes it hard for people to publicly say they have it.”

    Thankfully, “Evel” Dick Donato insists his prognosis is good, despite his HIV diagnosis. He is currently taking one pill a day to keep the virus at bay.


    “My viral load is virtually undetectable, I'm happy to say. I live a very normal life and don't have a lot of health issues. It also means that it's highly unlikely I could pass the disease along, although I don't have unsafe sex anymore. I fully expect to die of something else when I get old, not HIV or AIDS.”


    "Evel" Dick Donato hopes to inspire others to practice safe sex following his HIV diagnosis.
    With his HIV under control, “Evel” Dick Donato is focusing on sharing his story with others. He already inspired two Couples Therapy staff members to get tested for the illness, and he hopes to encourage others to do the same. This, plus his desire to stop hiding the truth, is why he has finally decided to reveal his diagnosis and the reason for his Big Brother exit.

    “I knew it wasn't a death sentence like it used to be,” Donato said of HIV. “But it has still changed me. I do think about others a lot more now. I'm looking forward to going public with this, because maybe, just maybe, this can be the moment where I do something that really helps other people.”

    Lana Del Rey goes casual in a button down and jeans while grabbing a cup of coffee at Starbucks on Tuesday afternoon (September 30) in New York City.

    American Horror Story creator Ryan Murphy dropped some pretty exciting news that same day — one of Lana‘s songs is going to be featured in the new Freak Show season!

    One of the show’s fans tweeted at him and said she thinks she is going to be too scared to watch the show this year.

    “Tina, don’t be afraid!” Ryan tweeted back. “The clown is scary, true. But don’t you wanna see Jessica Lange sing a Lana Del Rey song?”

    Dating is the last thing on my mind’: Taylor Swift insists she’s not looking for love… and reveals fame and fortune have come at a cost

    She has been linked to some of the most lusted after men in Hollywood.

    But at just 24, Taylor Swift insists she’s given up on looking for love.

    Opening up in the November issue of British Vogue, the pop superstar admits that she isn’t interested in dating as it’s almost impossible to find a suitor who can handle her stardom.

    She explains: ‘Dating or finding someone is the last thing on my mind, because I can’t picture how it could work with the way my life is.

    'I don’t know how a guy is supposed to walk next to his girlfriend when there are 20 men with cameras, and he can’t protect his girlfriend because that’s the life she chose.'

    The Love Story hitmaker reveals that she’s now simply stopped thinking about finding Mr. Right.

    She adds: ‘I just don’t see how it could work, so I don’t think about it, and I kind of run from it when it presents itself.

    They think that they would want to get to know me, and maybe date me, but I don’t think they want what comes with it.’

    The interview comes with her cover shoot for the bible, shot by famed photographer Mario Testino, on which the 24-year-old looks stunning in a knitted jumper dress, pink hooded jacket and with her usually perfectly coiffed blonde locks swept back off her face.

    But despite her famous good looks, Taylor admits that she was always an outsider growing up.

    She tells the publication: ‘The one thing I wish these girls that come to my shows knew is that they are exactly where I was when I was a teenager.

    'I had no idea who I was! I was going through all these phases. I was trying on different outfits and all these different personalities, trying to figure out what category I fit into, and which clique I would be accepted in.

    'But if you just keep doing ‘you’, and being who you are and doing what feels natural to you, maybe you won’t find a place where you fit in for a very long time, but you eventually will.'

    The star’s dating dilemma comes after failed romances with the likes of Harry Styles, John Mayer and Joe Jonas.

    She revealed last month that she hasn’t been on a dating in 18 months.

    She told Rolling Stone: ‘I feel like watching my dating life has become a bit of a national pastime.

    'And I'm just not comfortable providing that kind of entertainment anymore.

    'I don't like seeing slide shows of guys I've apparently dated.

    I don’t like giving comedians the opportunity to make jokes about me at awards shows. I don’t like it when headlines read ‘Careful, Bro, She’ll Write a Song About You,’ because it trivializes my work.

    'And most of all, I don't like how all these factors add up to build the pressure so high in a new relationship that it gets snuffed out before it even has a chance to start. And so, I just don't date.'

    See the full shoot and interview in the November issue of British Vogue, on sale from Monday October 6.
