Lady Gaga Cancels Jakarta Show

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Artist News, Concerts / Tours, Pop,

Lady GagaLady Gaga has cancelled her gig in Indonesia after receiving death threats.

The "Judas" singer was set to perform in Jakarta as part of the Asian leg of her Born This Way Ball tour but has now axed the show because hardline extremists complained her sexy clothes and dance routines would corrupt young people. Islamic Defenders Front called Gaga a "messenger of the devil" and vowed to turn out at the airport by the thousands if she tried to step off the plane.

"It's unfortunate. But with threats if the concert goes ahead, Lady Gaga's side is calling it off. This is not only about Lady Gaga's security, but extends to those who will be watching her," said Minola Sebayang, a lawyer for concert promoters Big Daddy.

Gaga is "devastated" by the decision to pull the plug on the show. "There is nothing Holy about hatred. We had to cancel the concert in Indonesia. I'm so very sorry to the fans & just as devastated as you if not more.(sic)" she wrote on her Twitter.

Jay-Z and Kanye West to Make Another Album

Jay-Z and Kanye WestJay-Z and Kanye West are to record another album together.

The duo - who are currently on a joint European tour - are planning to return to the studio to work on another record following the success of last year's Watch The Throne.

"It's not started yet, but it's coming," producer Mike Dean promised.

In December, Jay admitted he was keen to record with Kanye again, but only after they'd each returned to their solo projects: "It depends on how this thing finishes up. We - I say 'we' because I'm in Throne mode - we're in a great place creatively. You might see a Jay, then Kanye and a Throne album next year. You know, we're really in a great place creatively. We really found our zone."

Simon Cowell Blasts The Voice

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Prime Time, Reality, FOX, Gossip,

Simon CowellSimon Cowell has taken a swipe at The Voice.

The TV mogul is currently judging hopeful singers for the second series of The X Factor in the US and told one contestant they would be better off auditioning for rival show The Voice - where the judges don't see what contestants look like before they pick them.

After the singer's audition, fellow panelist L.A. Reid told them, "If you decide to try out again, please do it on another show."

"Yes, the good news is I hear The Voice auditions are happening next week," Simon added.

This is not the first time Simon has blasted the rival show, having previously said he thought it would be better as a radio show: "That show [The Voice] puzzles me because it starts off and 'it's all about the voice.' So my first thought is: 'Why isn't this on radio?' because what's the point in looking at them. Then suddenly I'm watching it a week or two weeks ago and it's the same as The X Factor. They've got dancers behind them, graphics, lights. Same show. I see a lot of shows trying to rip us off. If you try and rip somebody off it always looks like a bad copy."


Demi Moore Meets Up with Ashton Kutcher

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

Ashton Kutcher and Demi MooreDemi Moore and Ashton Kutcher have reportedly met up to discuss the future of their relationship.

The estranged couple - who split last year following claims Ashton cheated on Demi - have seen each other at least twice in the past month to talk about what is going to happen in the future. According to RadarOnline.com, the pair were together last week for the birthday party of the man who officiated at their wedding, Rabbi Yehuda Berg.

"They have met up to discuss where to go next. Whether it be to divorce, or if there is a journey to travel together ... they both feel it's important to have spiritual guidance to accomplish it. I know they met up with Rabbi around the time of the Gemini New Moon last Monday, it signifies a time of new beginnings, especially when it comes to communication, so they met again before the party, at least once, maybe twice," a source said.

However, they are still unclear about what to do. "The idea was to discuss, where do they go from here. They're by no means getting back together but equally no decision has been made to end things for good so everything is to play at this stage," the source added.

The Dark Knight Rises

With all the box office record breaking The Avengers is doing, Warner Bros. wanted to leak a little reminder to movie-goers that they have a blockbuster superhero film coming out, too...

Although the trailer for The Dark Knight Rises hasn't revealed too much about Anne Hathaway's Catwoman, the teaser poster above doesn't look like she'll be serving too much as an ally to Christian Bale's Batman.

The film hits theaters on July 20.

Weekend Reading: Avengers, Starlin, Finger and Bagge

ThanosNext week, we'll all be talking about Men In Black III, but this week was still a lot of chatter about Joss Whedon's The Avengers. Let's hit that:

Avengers creators assemble! Here’s a short but excellent interview with Jim Starlin, courtesy of Hero Complex and Geoff Boucher. It’s super-spoilery so if you haven’t seen the movie yet, don’t click!

And speaking of Avengers, here’s writer Lance Mannion’s review, titled “The Romance Of Tony Stark.”

Tim at Balloon Juice views The Avengers: “It’s a Whedon movie, and quite a good one. Every other line of dialogue could end up on a t-shirt, characters come across as layered and real, conflicts involve profound philosophical differences where it is only sometimes clear who has the ‘right’ side of it, and one or more title character will have a very near-death experience.”

Prime #1Who knew that a corner of the internets would be talking about Malibu Comics' Ultraverse this week?

Louis Vuitton Named World’s Most Valuable Luxury Brand

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Fashion Designers, News,

Marc JacobsLouis Vuitton has been named the world's most valuable luxury brand.

The French fashion house - whose creative director is Marc Jacobs - took the title for a seventh consecutive year after being valued at $25.9 billion following a study based on analysis of company performance and consumer interviews conducted by global research company Millward Brown Optimor.

Louis Vuitton beat off competition from Hermes, which was second with $19.1 billion, and Swiss watchmakers Rolex were third with $7.17 billion.

"Luxury is seen as a good investment with people increasingly buying classic pieces rather than high fashion. Those who can afford it indulge, including young professionals who, increasingly unable to buy houses, are spending their disposable income on mid-tier luxury," Nick Cooper, managing director of Millward Brown Optimor, said in a statement.
