Keira Knightley Goes Goth For Interview Magazine [PHOTOS]

April 3, 2012 10:39 am

Keira Knightley rocks a dark, androgynous look for Interview magazine–complete with greased hair and the works. Did anybody else notice a resemblance to Edward Scissorhands in this edgy photo shoot? Either way, we love the slicked back ‘do on this English native and we can’t get enough of those cheekbones and puckered red lips!

During her interview, the “Pirates of the Caribbean” babe opens up about her new and upcoming film “Anna Karenina,” as well as a few acting strategies. Knightley also added a her thoughts on being ignored for her celebrity profile, and recognized for her film roles. Read on for her bit on the spanking scene in “A Dangerous Method.”

Keira Knightley on her new film Anna Karenina: “It is sort of done in an epic way, but it was pretty much all done on one set, so it’s also a very stylized, deeply theatrical kind of piece. It was the opposite of A Dangerous Method in some ways, I think, with a million different shots and, you know, there’s just a completely different vibe.”

Keira Knightley on playing real characters: “There’s always the moral question when you’re playing real people. Is there any reason to do this, or are you simply exploiting somebody? Is it like dancing over somebody’s grave? I suppose in a funny kind of way that it’s the same thing with a great fictional character. So many people identify with them. So many people love them in so many different ways. So you don’t want to exploit them either, or take the easy way out by judging them. Or, if you are judging them, then you’re judging them in a way that the person would judge themselves, and not in kind of an outside, moralistic way.”

On whether the audience focuses on her performance and ignores her celebrity personality: “I think I’d be quite surprised if they could let go of all of that. I don’t really think there’s a real want to. I know with “A Dangerous Method” people liked the spanking an awful lot. [laughs] But I’m not quite sure. It’s weird, though, with the spanking.”

Watch One Direction Hysteria Take Over New York City [VIDEOS]

April 3, 2012 10:07 am

Tears streaming down, thousands of people held back by security and hysteric screaming—you would think we were describing a scene from a protest. Nope. It’s just a bunch of eager girls (and boys) overwhelmed with excitement in the presence of One Direction.

One Direction Breaks Billboard Chart Record With #1 LP

The British band caused a whole lot of havoc on their tour in the United States after hitting the US Billboard 200 chart at number 1 with over 176,000 album copies sold.

“We just found out that we are No.1 in America and as you can imagine, we are over the moon! When we got put together as a group, we couldn’t imagine ourselves coming to America, let alone releasing our album here, so for us to be sitting at the top of the US album charts is unbelievable. We are so grateful to everyone who has supported us in the US,” said band member Niall Horan on their website.

Asian Acts Wonder Girls, Agnes Monica, Charice, & Yuna Rock The U.S. [VIDEOS]

April 3, 2012 9:18 am

This past weekend’s 25th Annual Nickelodeon Kids’ Choice Awards brought to light some great talent — and not to mention some great sliming moments! Glancing through the list of nominees and winners we noticed a few Asian acts that many United States pop fans don’t know, but we believe would instantly fall in love with.

Victoria Justice: ‘I Want There To Be A Separation’

Winner of the 2012 Kids’ Choice Awards, Charice began competing in local singing competitions in the Philippines at 17. Soon, she became an Internet sensation as her voice was carried over to YouTube by her fans. Her powerful voice in “Louder” makes it clear why her fans had faith in her!

Yuna began her love affair with a guitar and writing music in Malaysia at 19, and has won awards for songs in both English and Malay. Her single “Live Your Life” is hauntingly beautiful and is the first from her forthcoming self-titled album.

Wonder Girls is a superwomen girl band from South Korea. In the past Sohee An, Yubin Kim, Sun Min, Yenny Park, and Lim Woo have opened for the Jonas Brothers and Justin Bieber. They are the first Korean band to make it to the Billboard Hot 100 Chart. The music video for the upbeat track “The DJ Is Mine” makes you want to get on your feet and start dancing.

Born in Indonesia, Agnes Monica began her singing career at the early age of six. She is a multiplatinum singer with several awards under her name. Her theatrical music video for “Paralyzed” ties beautifully to the lyrics of the song.

ABC‘s new drama “Scandal,” created by the same minds behind “Grey’s Anatomy” and “Private Practice,” premieres on Thursday at 10/9c. Kerry Washington stars as Olivia Pope who runs a crisis management firm. These are the people you call when you have a huge TMZ-worthy problem. Something you can’t fix and something you don’t want anybody to know about, especially the media. They’re damage control doctors.

Check out a sneak peek from the season premiere below!

We asked Kerry to give us a little spoiler of what we can expect this season. “By the end of the season nobody is who you think they are and Olivia, my character in particular, has some pretty scandalous secrets,” she tells us. Sounds juicy. You can check out the video below to hear Kerry talking more about the show.

“Scandal” premieres Thursday night on ABC at 10/9c.

Have Stephen Colletti & Chelsea Kane Called It Quits? [AUDIO]

April 3, 2012 12:01 am

Over the weekend “The Hills” and “Laguna Beach” alum Lauren Conrad threw a party to launch her new novel “The Fame Game.” Now one of the stars in attendance was her former boyfriend on “Laguna Beach,” Stephen Colletti, who has been in a relationship with Disney TV star and former “DWTS” contestant Chelsea Kane since last spring.

But our spy at the party said Chelsea was nowhere to be seen and Stephen was flying solo. These two are usually inseparable. So, does this mean Stephen & Chelsea have broken up? We can’t say for sure, but we certainly hope not. These two are just too cute a couple!

Newly turned 26-year-old Lady Gaga is known for her crazy and outrageous style. She arrives to any red carpet event with the assumption that everyone will be talking about her wardrobe choice.

Katy Perry Releases Trailer For Her 3D Concert Movie ‘Part Of Me’ [VIDEO]

April 2, 2012 3:57 pm

Katy Perry is going 3D with “Katy Perry: Part of Me,” a documentary style concert movie that will hit theaters fourth of July weekend. Similar to Justin Bieber’sNever Say Never,” cameras followed Katy through parts of her tour and also collected photos and tapes from before she was famous, which is all edited together in one spectacular 3D flick.

Katy Perry Released Lyric Video For ‘Dressin’ Up’ [VIDEO]

“The atmosphere I grew up in was 100% Christian,” says Katy in the trailer for “Part of Me,” which might surprise people considering her first big hit was called “I Kissed a Girl.” But like many popular singers, Katy got her musical start by performing in church. “If you’ve got a dream, you have to go on a journey to fulfill that dream,” she says, and obviously the “Firework” singer has fulfilled most of that dream because a concert movie is one of the hallmarks of a true pop star in this day and age.

Watch Demi Lovato Win Back Her Man In ‘Give Your Heart A Break’ [VIDEO]

April 2, 2012 3:44 pm

Demi Lovato has been through a lot in the last few years and she knows a little something about not giving up when the going gets rough. In her new video for “Give Your Heart A Break,” she fights for the man she loves in a creative and determined way.

Demi Lovato Gives Another Sneak Peek Of ‘Give Your Heart A Break’ [VIDEO]

Previews had been released for the video in the last few weeks featuring Demi flirting with a sexy man and having fun doing it. In the full-length video, we see that those are flashbacks to the recent past where the young lovers were in a better place. In the song, Demi encourages her boyfriend to see that she is on his side and not going to break his heart even when things get bad. So it’s fitting that in the video, Demi uses photos of the good times to remind her (very attractive) guy that she’s still there for him.

The young singer gathers up photos and starts pinning them on a big wall, but we can’t quite see what she’s doing. At the end of the video, her beau looks out his window and sees the giant photo collage lit up across the street that creates an even larger picture of him and Demi. So romantic!
