Fans Help Greenlight ‘Veronica Mars’ Movie

Kristen Bell as Veronica MarsVeronica Mars may have been cancelled six years ago, but fans are still just as ardent as ever to see a continuation of the UPN/CW series.

Series creator Rob Thomas took to the popular online fundraising site Kickstarter to generate interest and funds in seeing a big screen sequel to the show, which starred Kristen Bell as the title character.

"A two million dollar fundraising total probably means cross words are exchanged at the class reunion. Three million? We can afford a full-on brawl. Ten million? Who knows... For some reason the Neptune High class reunion takes place on a nuclear submarine! A Hobbit shows up! There’s a Bollywood end-credit dance number! I’ve always wanted to direct Bill Murray. We’ll figure out something cool. Hey, if that total goes high enough, I’ll bet the good folks at Warner Bros. will agree a sequel is a good idea," Thomas wrote on the project's Kickstarter page.

Miraculously, fans pulled through, raising over $2.8 million in less than 12 hours.

Jack White Slams Reality Television

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Music, Reality, Gossip, Internet,

Jack WhiteJack White has hit out at reality TV shows. The former White Stripes frontman has criticized people who appear on talent shows insisting they are only interested in instant fame and he claims the format dilutes the work of credible artists.

In an interview with the new issue of Britain's Esquire magazine, he said, "The goal of modern celebrity is to make yourself into the lowest common denominator, 'Hey, I'm a guy just like you. I like beer, a football game.' Especially in reality television, you'll see what people will go so far as to make a fool out of themselves just to prove that."

The 37-year-old musician went on to criticize Oscar-winning director Clint Eastwood, 82, who recently appeared on E! fly-on-the-wall series, Mrs. Eastwood & Company with his wife Dina: "I don't want to see a reality show about Michelangelo. You know, Clint Eastwood is doing one with his family and it's such a disappointment. There's no reason to put yourself in a position that makes things completely un-special."

Steven Tyler: “I’m Not a Racist”

Nicki Minaj and Steven Tyler

Steven Tyler has hit back at Nicki Minaj for calling him a "racist."

The American Idol judge lashed out at the Aerosmith rocker - whom she replaced on the panel of the talent show - after he questioned her suitability and claimed she would've passed on legendary musician Bob Dylan if he auditioned, but Steven was shocked when Nicki took it as a racist insult. "It was a moment, I'm sorry if it was taken wrong. But I'm the furthest from a racist. I'm not sure how she got that from me saying 'I'm not sure she would have judged Bob Dylan.' I was just saying if Bob Dylan came on the show he would have been thrown off. Maybe I spoke out of turn but a racist I'm not," he said.

Although it was thought that the music producer - who has been on the panel of the show since it began - would take on the role of a mentor behind the scenes for the upcoming season, he has agreed a deal with Fox to stay on as a judge after negotiations with Enrique Iglesias fell though, according to Deadline.

"Just heard Randy is back on Idol. Right decision," Randy's former co-star Simon Cowell wrote on Twitter, appearing to confirm the news.
