Madonna Fails to Report for Jury Duty

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Legal Issues,

MadonnaMadonna has failed to report for jury duty.

The 55-year-old star had been summoned to the Manhattan Supreme Court at 111 Centre Street near City Hall in New York to perform her civic duty along with a jury of her peers but failed to attend, according to the New York Post newspaper.

The "Hung Up" singer allegedly did not inform the court she would not be attending, despite New York jurors being granted one automatic postponement upon application, and therefore at 9 am court security were expecting her to arrive.

Madonna - who reportedly earns $1 million for each of her stage appearances and whose real name is Madonna Louise Ciccone - last participated in jury service in 2008 at a court in Beverly Hills, California, but the case was dismissed just fours later.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Clothing, Style, Obituaries,

L'Wren ScottL'Wren Scott has been found dead in her apartment.

The 47-year-old celebrated fashion designer - who was dating Rolling Stones star Mick Jagger - was found hanging from a scarf on a doorknob in her home in Manhattan, New York, earlier today, police told the New York Daily News newspaper.

The body is said to have been found by her assistant at her 200 11th Avenue address at around 10 o'clock this morning and although it's been claimed that police do not suspect foul play, the Medical Examiner's Office will determine the cause of death.

L'Wren has previously spoken out about her hate for being referred to simply as Mick Jagger's girlfriend as she wanted to be recognized for her own talents, although she often used the rocker as her muse. "I'm a fashion designer. I don't want to be defined as someone's girlfriend. You always wonder if people will pay attention to the hard work that goes into what you do. And when you're taking something on your own, it's your company, your investment - your life," she previously said. The former model designed all of her 70-year-old boyfriend's outfits for the Rolling Stones' 50th anniversary tour.

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Weddings, Rumors,

Justin Theroux and Jennifer AnistonJennifer Aniston and Justin Theroux are reportedly planning two weddings. Friends of the couple say they plan to celebrate their marriage in both New York and California, with "his and hers" events.

"Justin grew up in New York, most of his family are on the East Coast, so rumor is that after 'Jen's wedding' in California, there will be something in New York. There's certainly going to be a wedding party on the East Coast. It might not even be until the summer, but Justin has taken charge of his side of the organization and is really getting into it. He's arranging live music and the theme is going to be very rock 'n' roll," a source said.

While Justin, 41, is organizing a party, 44-year-old Jennifer's ceremony is likely to be more romantic and chilled out. "Jen wants it to be really relaxed and quite classic. it will be traditional," another source said.

The pair are also thought to have agreed to divide their time between the East and the West coast once they are married. "Jen knows how much Justin misses New York. So she's conceded that once they're married they can buy something there," one source added.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson and his fiance Justin MikitaJesse Tyler Ferguson will marry in New York this summer.

The Modern Family actor - who proposed to his boyfriend Justin Mikita in July but only announced it in September - wants to tie the knot in the city because it supports gay marriage.

"We wanted to get married in New York, because that's where it's legal, so we want to support the state that's in support of us. It will take place in a beautiful loft space. It's so nice -- I can't wait to see it all done. The guest list is around the 200 mark -- which to me seems big -- but people are telling me it's not that bad," he said.

Jesse, 37, and 27-year-old Justin - who have been dating for two years - hope their union will eventually be considered official everywhere in the United States, where current marriage status between couples of the same sex is different from state to state.

Casey Neistat $13,238.86 left in taxi

Have you ever left anything in a cab? We know plenty who've lost iPhone and Android devices, tablets, laptops, and other expensive gadgetry, but Casey Neistat accidentally left over $13,000 in expensive technology in his taxi. After going through the frustrating process of filing reports with the taxi company, making calls, and getting a police report filed, he wondered if he'd get his stuff back at all. Seriously, how likely is it that you leave something expensive in a taxi and expect to get it back? Normally the item is found by another passenger, or the taxi driver himself, and then disappears for good. Not this time.

Infiniti's game changing concept

The Infiniti LE made its debut at the New York Auto Show this year. Like many concepts, the design, was brilliantly stunning. Luckily, Infiniti plans on staying true to its concept design and introducing a new way of building an EV.

While most EVs are an afterthought, Infiniti went head on with its LE concept. The EV isn’t a rebadged G-series (although it’s about the same size,) instead, it's an original Infinity design--an Infiniti first. All the luxury, sportiness, and a sexy design that you see now, is what you’ll get later. According to Infiniti, the LE Concept sports a 24kWh lithium-ion battery located under the passenger compartment floor, which is the same battery used by the Nissan Leaf. As for tech features, expect Infiniti Connection, which includes Infiniti's Personal Assistant 24-hour concierge service, navigation, and POI search along with a wireless charging system.
