While there was a lot of backlash from fans about the casting announcement last August, the Argo director looks like he's filling out Christian Bale's batsuit quite well after all.

Emma Bunton: Spice Girls Were Not ‘Sexual’

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Gossip, Music Videos, Pop,

Spice GirlsEmma Bunton claims the that Spice Girls were "sexy" but not "sexual."

The "Say You'll Be There" singer claims there is a huge difference between how the pop singers of today present themselves and how she and her bandmates - Geri Halliwell, Mel B, Mel C and Victoria Beckham - looked in their 90s heyday. "Back in the day the Spice Girls were fun and sexy. But we weren't sexual. Now people do take that next step and put it out there a bit more with their videos and stuff. If that's how someone wants to be and they're confident enough to bare themselves then that's completely down to them. But it's something that I personally wouldn't do. But I'm sure all this sexuality will be complained about and then it will be dropped again," she told The Daily Star.

Britney Spears Thinks That It’s Her Job to Look Sexy

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music Videos, Performances, Pop,

Britney SpearsBritney Spears thinks it's her job to look more like a "sex kitten" than she really is.

The 31-year-old star's video for her new single "Work B***h" shows her flaunting her figure in sexy outfits while she whips her dancers and she claims this is a different role to what she plays at home where she is mother to sons eight-year-old Sean and seven-year-old Jayden - who she has with ex-husband Kevin Federline.

"I think it goes with what I do. It's my job to portray more of a sex kitten than what I really am at home with my kids," she said when quizzed on her sex appeal.

The pop star finds her stage persona therapeutic as it nothing like her real life and her performances give her the opportunity to portray a "different character." She explained, "As artists I think people who are really shy - I'm really shy in person - so when I get on stage, it's really good for me to become this different character because it's like therapy for me."

Check out these high-quality iPhone 5 3D renders

White iPhone 5

We've had a bunch of leaked images of the purported next-generation iPhone (iPhone 5? iPhone 2012? The new iPhone?), and if the rumors are true, then these 3D renders that were created using the leaked images, should tell the tale of what the device will actually look like--and we think it looks fantastic. The black iPhone gets blacker, with a dark frame, while the white model maintains the chrome frame and aluminum colored back. Get a look at more of the images in our gallery. If you want the 3D model for yourself to play with in your favorite 3D program, you can grab it from Martin Hajek for $50.

Apple introduces unified library for iPhoto and Aperture

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Apple, PC / Laptop, Software,

Unified Library iPhoto Aperture

Apple has introduced a new unified photo library that is compatible with both iPhoto 9.3 and Aperture 3.3 or later. This means that users can now open, view, and edit the same images using either iPhoto or Aperture, and can freely go back and forth between the two apps, something we had been wishing would happen for quite a while. Apple has listed a number of advantages that the new unified photo library provides:

  • There’s no need to import, export, or reprocess photos as you move from one app to the other.
  • If you use Faces, Places, have created albums, Smart Albums, or shared photos to Facebook or Flickr, these automatically work across both apps.
  • Slideshows created in one app can be played back in the other.
  • Because iPhoto and Aperture now share a common imaging system, when you adjust images using any tools in Aperture, you’ll see the changes when you open the same library in iPhoto and vice versa.
  • If you’re new to the tools available in Aperture, you can maintain your photo library in iPhoto and open Aperture only when you want to try your hand at retouching, for example, making selective corrections with brushes. All edits are non-destructive, so you can remove them at any time.
  • If you’ve collected more than one iPhoto library over the years, you can now open your iPhoto libraries in Aperture and merge them into a consolidated master library. You can then access your merged library in iPhoto.

iPhoto 9.3 was released yesterday.

Natalie Portman Talks Plastic Surgery

Natalie Portman on the cover of V magazineDoes Natalie Portman ever look bad? I didn’t think so, but someone at V magazine felt compelled enough to ask the actress how she feels about plastic surgery.

“I would hope not,” she responds, when questioned whether she would submit to what seems to be a Hollywood standard these days. She does, however, admit to thinking about approaching 40 (despite having over a decade until she reaches that hill): “You see people who were stars five years ago and already they’re waning. As actresses approach 40, it starts becoming really, really difficult.”

Photographer Mario Testino shot the images, which recall an androgynous look for the woman who still looked hot without her hair. In the images (seen after the jump), Portman evokes Lady Gaga’s pantsless trend in one and rocks a bustier with some major shoulder bling in another.

The magazine’s Winter 2009/2010 issue is on newsstands now.
