"Johnny Depp and Vanessa Paradis have amicably separated. Please respect their privacy and, more importantly, the privacy of their children," a statement from their representatives read.

Kim and Kourtney Kardashian with Scott DisickKim Kardashian would undergo artificial insemination.

The 31-year-old reality star - who is currently dating rapper Kanye West - said if she's single by the time she turns 40, she would opt for IVF treatment in order to have a baby.

"If I'm 40 and not married, I would have a baby artificially inseminated. I would feel like Mary, like Jesus is my baby, you know?" Kim told Scott Disick - who is expecting his second child with Kim's sister Kourtney - speaking on her family's reality TV show.

The revelation came as the pair embarked on a wild night out on the latest episode of the popular show, after sister Kourtney insisted party-loving Scott go on a date night with socialite Kim. Scott, 29, was less than enthusiastic at first, moaning, "I love Kim, but she's the most boring person ever. Kim only stays out for an hour." Kim and Scott bonded over dinner and then hit online chatroom Chat Roulette, where Kim lifted up her top for the camera.

Charlie SheenCharlie Sheen will retire when Anger Management comes to an end.

The 46-year-old actor sees his forthcoming new comedy show as his "swan song," and rather than looking for further acting work, he is looking forward to spending more time with his five kids - Cassandra, 27, Sam, eight, Lola, seven, and two-year-old twins Bob and Max - when the program eventually draws to a close.

"When I'm done with this business it's just going to be about soccer games and amusement parks. And when [Anger Management] ends, I'm done. This is my swan song. I've been doing this 30 years. And there's a lot more out there to do than make-believe, you know? I mean, I'm grateful. I've got a dream life as a direct result of television, you know? But at some point you just get tired of wearing somebody else's clothes, saying somebody else's words and working in somebody else's space. I'm also aware of the fact that you don't get these kinds of shots in the same lifetime. You're only supposed to have one hit show, unless you're Kelsey Grammer."

Carrie Underwood Wants to Popularize Country

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Editorials, Country,

Carrie UnderwoodCarrie Underwood wants to make country music appealing around the world.

The 29-year-old singer - who has sold over 14 million albums since winning American Idol in 2005 - thinks it is sad the genre isn't as popular in other countries as it is in the US.

"It's always fun to expand your resume. Country music isn't too popular outside the US and that's something I'd like to change. It's a shame other people aren't exposed on a daily basis to such a wonderful form of music," she said.

Carrie admits she was told she would find appearing on American Idol difficult because of her country roots, but she always had the backing of then-head judge Simon Cowell and didn't have to change or conform.

"From the beginning I was told, 'It's going to be rough for you, it's a pop TV show.' But everything I did just came out country. And Simon encouraged me to stick at what I do well. My goal is to make country music everyone can get into," she added.


Seduction Of The Innocent by Max Allan Collins

Seduction Of The InnocentFantastic news!

I’ve always felt that the comic book industry would be a great background for a mystery novel, and there have been a couple, inclduing The Comic Book Killer by Richard Lupoff and Max Allan Collins’ A Killing In Comics.

Now Max is back with a new mystery from Hard Case Crime, one of my favorite mystery publishers. The book is called Seduction Of The Innocent and it’s no coincidence that it shares the title with good ol’ Fredric Wertham’s classic anti-comic screed.

Collins’ hero, Jack Starr (a comics syndicate troubleshooter - and isn’t that a great-sounding job?) investigates a murder set against the backdrop of Congressional hearings about the banning of violent crime and horror comics.

Jonah HillJonah Hill has signed up for 'Django Unchained'.

The 21 Jump Street star previously turned down a role in the spaghetti western movie - which will be directed by Quentin Tarantino - due to scheduling conflicts but he is now able to play a different character, who is as yet unknown, in the film.

Jonah rejected the role of Scotty Harmony, who loses the titular character Django's (Jamie Foxx) slave wife Broomhilda (Kerry Washington) to evil plantation owner Calvin Candie - who is played by Leonardo DiCaprio - which results in him being involved in a showdown with the slave-turned-bounty hunter.

The drama film focuses on Django's quest to recover his wife from Calvin - who runs club Candyland, where his spouse and other female slaves are exploited as sex objects - and Samuel L. Jackson, Christoph Waltz and James Russo have also signed up for the motion picture.

Jack Osbourne Diagnosed With MS

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Child Stars,

Jack OsbourneJack Osbourne has been diagnosed with multiple sclerosis.

The 26-year-old TV star - the son of Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne - and his fiancee Lisa Stelly welcomed their first child, Pearl, in April and Jack revealed getting the diagnosis two weeks after her birth left him devastated.

"While I was waiting for the final results, I got really, really angry. The timing was so bad. I'd just had a baby, work was going great - I kept thinking, 'Why now?' Then I got really sad for about two days, and after that I realized, being angry and upset is not going to do anything at this point - if anything it's only going to make it worse. 'Adapt and overcome' is my new motto," he said.

Jack discovered his condition when he lost 60 per cent of the sight in his right eye. MS is an autoimmune disease which affects the central nervous system through the brain and spinal cord and people with the illness show symptoms with a change in their balance, vision and thought processes.

Microsoft announces Surface tablet

Microosft Surface Tablet

The rumor mill was calling for a new Microsoft tablet to be announced today, and thats exactly what happened. Just a few minutes ago, Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer unveiled the Microsoft Surface tablet. The Microsoft Surface is a companion to Windows 8, with Microsoft saying that it's "a tablet that's a great PC, and a PC that's a great tablet." The hardware is 9.3mm thin with edges beveled at 22 degrees. The casing is all magnesium, which is a first for a computer, making the Surface weigh in at 1.5 pounds. Oh, and it's also got a 10.6-inch display, so it's here to compete with the big boys. As you'd expect, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth are present, as is a built-in kickstand, Gorilla Glass, and an amazingly thin 3mm cover that also doubles as a keyboard for touch typing.

Surface will be available in the model we just detailed, as well as a Pro model that supports a higher resolution display. It's got the same chassis, same kickstand, and supports the same accessories, but this model wuns full Windows 8 Pro rather than just Windows RT. It also supports digital ink by way of a stylus. When the Surface detects the pen, it stops accepting touch input, making it easy to write on. The upgraded model also has a DisplayPort, allowing you to plug it in to a larger monitor, this giving you the regular, full PC experience.
