John Travolta Sued For Assault

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Movies, Legal Issues, Rumors,

John TravoltaJohn Travolta is being sued for assault by cruise ship worker Fabian Zanzi.

The Grease actor has previously been accused by the man of exposing himself during a Royal Caribbean cruise in 2009, but Fabian is now requesting unspecified damages for the alleged assault, TMZ.com reports.

John - who is married to Kelly Preston - allegedly asked for a meal to be delivered to his room, where he then asked Fabian for a neck massage. He then claims the actor dropped his robe when he went to reach for his neck and forcefully embraced him, telling him he was "beautiful." When he resisted, Travolta reportedly offered him $12,000 to remain silent about the issue. Fabian claims he told management on board the cruise ship about the event but they refused to allow him to write out any details.

It is the second time in recent days the legendary star has been sued.

Alec Baldwin and Salma HayekSalma Hayek has promised to return to 30 Rock.

The actress appeared in the third season of the comedy for a multi-episode arc portraying Elisa, the girlfriend of NBC executive Jack Donaghy (Alec Baldwin), and creator Tina Fey has made her commit to a return before the show finishes its seventh and final season.

"I tried to tell Salma Hayek that she has to come back. She said that she would and I'm going to hold her to that," Tina told Entertainment Weekly.

Salma isn't the only star on Tina's "bucket list," she also hopes to lure Michael Sheen, Isabella Rossellini and other guest stars back to the show: "There are going to be people that we've always wanted to have on that we haven't, for various reasons, been able to yet. Or characters we've enjoyed so much that we want to bring back at some point before we leave. I always wanted to get Michael Benjamin Washington back on who played Donald Jordan, the older son. Of course we want to get Dennis Duffy in at some point. I'd love to get Michael Sheen to come back as Wesley Snipes. I'd love to get Isabella Rossellini back because we were reminding ourselves that Jack was married before, and she was a very pivotal character once."

Smashing Pumpkins Frustrated by Fans

Smashing PumpkinsSmashing Pumpkins get frustrated when fans just want to hear their old songs.

Frontman Billy Corgan says despite all the work he puts into writing new material, fans often just want them to play the classics:

"We met this wall resistance like, 'It's nice you guys want to move forward, but can't you just play the old songs?' I've had five years of 'Can't you just play the old songs?' The whole time, all I've done is put my head down and try to make new music. You reach a point of literal frustration where you start going, 'Maybe this is never going to move forward? Maybe the vague 'they' out there will never accept The Smashing Pumpkins of this time?'"

However, concertgoers could be disappointed next time they're at a show because Billy says they plan to play their latest offering Oceania in its entirety with only few fan favorites thrown in:

Deadmau5 Blasts Madonna, David Guetta and Skrillex

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Gossip, Electronic, Pop,

Deadmau5Deadmau5 has blasted Madonna, David Guetta and Skrillex.

The "I Remember" dance musician famously criticized Madonna after she appeared to ask fans who was taking drugs at one of her concerts, and has now said she should stay away from dance music: "You want to be 'hip' and 'cool' and 'funky grandma'? Fine. It's not my place to say you're irrelevant. If you're gonna come into my world, at least do it with a little more dignity. I understand she has millions more fans, and is way more successful than I'll ever be. But it's like talking about slavery at a f***ing blues concert. It's inappropriate."

Deadmau5 - real name Joel Zimmerman - also criticized two of the biggest DJs in the world, claiming there is very little skill in the way they perform.

"David Guetta has two iPods and a mixer and he just plays tracks - like, 'Here's one with Akon, check it out!' Even Skrillex isn't doing anything too technical. He has a laptop and a MIDI recorder, and he's just playing his s**t. People are, thank God, smartening up about who does what - but there's still button-pushers getting paid half a million. And not to say I'm not a button-pusher. I'm just pushing a lot more buttons."


Lana Del Rey to Become Face of H&M

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Celebrities, News,

Lana Del ReyLana Del Rey is set to become the new face of H&M.

The "Video Games" singer - who already has a Mulberry bag named after her - is said to be in the middle of shooting a campaign for the Swedish high street store, with the ads being revealed later this year.

"She's shooting an H&M campaign in New York," a source said.

Earlier this year, luxury label Mulberry created a bag in her honor and she admits it was a dream come true: "I love the design, it's a perfect mix between old school Hollywood and contemporary style. It's an honor that such a classic and prestigious brand would name a bag after me."

"We wanted to design a gorgeous bag that reflected Lana Del Rey's style and beauty so we thought the bag should be simple and structured yet relevant for now and recognisable instantly as a classic Mulberry piece. We wanted it to be functional with an uptown twist as Lana is such a wonderful uptown girl herself; its shape implies structure yet it has gorgeous squidgeablity!" Mulberry creative director Emma Hill added.


Weekend Reading: Avengers, Alan Moore and Don McGregor

ThanosA friend of mine has a bet that The Avengers' will gross $2 billion (with a "b") by the end of the year, so I guess we're all still talking about Earth's Mightiest Heroes.

If you’re still talking about them, Longbox Graveyard looks at Thanos and The Infinity Gauntlet.

Then LG’s honcho Paul O’Connor passes along this link with everything you need to know about Thanos.

Alan Moore, critical of movies made from his comics, is writing his own movie, which I hope someone adapts into a comic.

It’s never too late to read a story or two from Don McGregor about his father.

My pal Steven Thompson has been streamlining his collection and just recently posted a bunch of great bargains at Booksteve’s Bookstore: Kirby, Captain Marvel, Robert Crumb, Superman, Batman, Wonder Wart-Hog...you can’t go wrong!

Planet Of The Apes, Back To The Future And James Bond!

James Bond LexiconMy pal Rich Handley at Hasslein Publishing has a big favor to ask. He publishes a great bunch of books on shows and movies like Planet of the Apes, Back To The Future, James Bond, Red Dwarf and lots of others. He's asked for a no-cost favor, so I'm posting it here, mostly verbatim.

"Paul and I at Hasslein Publishing are trying to qualify for one of 12 small-business grants from Chase in order to build up Hasslein into something bigger than it currently is. We need 250 votes within an eight-day period to qualify, so please vote before June 30!

"Each grant is for a whopping $250,000. It's a huge long-shot, as I'm sure a lot of people are submitting their companies to this program, but if we were to win one of the grants, we'd have a ton of money to do amazing things with our company, which would be a good thing.
