‘Alien’ Artist H.R. Giger Dies

H.R. Giger working on 'Alien'

Surrealist artist H.R. Giger - one of the driving creative forces between 1979's Alien - died today in Zurich after complications from a fall.

The 74-year-old Swiss was known for his dark but brilliant fascination in humanity's relationship with machines. Having been brought to Hollywood by El Topo director Alejandro Jodorowsky to work on his unrealized Dune, Giger went on to work in sci-fi films like Alien, for which he won an Oscar (it's worth noting that his designs for Jodorowsky's Dune were still used in David Lynch's 1984 film adaptation).

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Break-ups, Rumors,

Michelle Williams and Dustin YellinMichelle Williams has reportedly split from her boyfriend.

The My Week With Marilyn actress and Dustin Yellin are said to have separated after a year of dating, Us Weekly reports.

The 33-year-old beauty - who has eight-year-old daughter Matilda with her late ex-fiance Heath Ledger - was first romantically linked with the artist when they were spotted holding hands in May 2013 after the Met Gala. The pair were not spotted together very often and Michelle didn't speak publicly about her romance with the 38-year-old artist.

Though it is unclear when they split, Dustin didn't appear to be with the actress when she and her Cabaret cast and crewmates celebrated the Broadway production's opening night last month, and he also wasn't by her side at the Metropolitan Museum of Art for this year's Met Gala earlier this month.

Shia LaBeouf May Face Legal Action for Plagiarism

Shia LaBeoufShia LaBeouf may face legal action for plagiarism over a short film he made.

The Transformers actor could be taken to court after being accused of the "blatant" borrowing of another artist's story for his project Howard Cantour.com without giving proper credit. Shia's project, which debuted online on Monday follows the story of a troubled internet film critic, and is extremely similar to a 2007 graphic novella by artist Daniel Clowes called Justin M. Damiano.

According to the New York Daily News newspaper, Clowes declined to comment, but his publisher Fantagraphics' Eric Reynolds claims the artist "is exploring his legal options." "LeBeouf changed the name of the main character, but he used the comic as a direct script and storyboard. Clowes has a real melodramatic voice that is very idiosyncratic and LaBeouf just used the dialogue word for word. There is no ambiguity. There is no way that anybody wrote this but Dan Clowes. It just defies any kind of logic or good sense. This was so blatant and inexcusable that it was as baffling as it was appalling," Eric told the publication.

Shia has since apologized for copying ideas from Clowes in a heartfelt statement posted online, admitting how "embarrassed" he feels about the situation. Howard Cantour.com has since been taken off the internet.


Shia LaBeouf Rips Off ‘Ghost World’ Artist

Shia LaBeouf's Twitter

Shia LaBeouf just can't come out with a project these days without stirring up a bit of controversy. Whether it's with Alec Baldwin on Broadway or Brad Pitt on the set of Fury, it seems as though he's constantly angering someone when it comes to his craft. Today, that someone is Ghost World artist Daniel Clowes.

Although his short film HowardCantour.com - which stars Jim Gaffigan - already premiered at last year's Cannes Film Festival, it was its online unveiling yesterday that allowed people to take notice and quickly thereafter become outraged over its blatant plagiarism of Clowes' 2007 comic Justin M. Damiano.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Television,

Kanye West and Kim KardashianKanye West has hired Andy Warhol's cousin to paint Kim Kardashian.

The 36-year-old rapper, who recently boasted his fiancee is "the most beautiful woman of all time," has commissioned Monica Warhol, who is related to the late legendary pop artist, to create a one-off portrait of the brunette beauty.

Monica told the New York Post's Page Six she is very excited about the project and despite never getting the chance to meet Andy, who passed away in 1987 when she was 10, she believes he would have been very impressed by Kim: "She's an icon. She's famous for nothing. Andy would have loved her. Kim is beautiful. She's so manufactured. She looks like a human Barbie."

Arizona-based Monica has previously painted portraits of rapper Flo Rida that appear in the music video for his song, "How I Feel," and also painted a likeness of Lenny Kravitz, after meeting him in the Church Boutique in Los Angeles.
