A Conversation With Anne & Christopher Rice

The TV Guide

Last night I had the extreme pleasure of attending an in-person discussion between authors Anne Rice and her son Christopher Rice at a book-signing for her new novel Prince Lestat. I was super excited to learn earlier this year that Anne would be writing about her beloved vampire characters again and when I found out that she would be appearing at a book-singing event here in LA, moderated by her son and my friend Christopher, I knew I had to be there. The authors conversed for about 45 minutes before questions were taken from the audience and then our books were signed. It was a really great night with a pair of really remarkable people. More »

Whoops! Kristen Stewart Suffered A Nip Slip At The Hollywood Film Awards

The HFAs were such a MESS

Earlier today we saw video of Johnny Depp seemingly drunkenly slurring his way through an introduction on stage at the Hollywood Film Awards last night and we learned that Jennifer Lopez had to laugh her way through her messy HFAs intro as well. Right now, we learn that actress Kristen Stewart suffered a wardrobe malfunction when her nipple slipped out from in between the holes in her top, flashing everyone in sight at the HFAs last night. Whoops!! More »

Watch: Johnny Depp Appears To Be A Drunk Ass Mess At The Hollywood Film Awards

"That's the weirdest microphone I ever saw in my life."
"I'm not very good at this type of thing"

Johnny Depp was a presenter at the Hollywood Film Awards in LA, CA last night and as you can see in the video embedded above, homeboy appeared to be a HOT MESS when he took to the stage to introduce the Documentary category. Depp very clearly had to slur his way through his speech and damn near fell over a time or two. It looks to me like Johnny probably had a few too many cocktails in the green room before he went on stage in front of the audience … and multiple cameras. At least he managed to get through his introduction, for the most part, which proves that even as a drunk ass mess, Johnny Depp can still do his job.

Watch: Here Are Highlights From Trent Reznor & Atticus Ross’s Keynote Q&A At The Film + TV Music Conference

"Darkness has been my energy"
The Highlights

Musicians Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross were on hand at the Globe Theater at Universal Studios yesterday to participate in the keynote Q&A at the Film + TV Music Conference hosted by The Hollywood Reporter and Billboard magazine yesterday to discuss the film composing they have done with director David Fincher, with the focus specifically on their recent project Gone Girl. I’ve been lucky enough to hear TR speak about music and composition before so I knew the Q&A would be spectacular. This was the first time that I got to hear Atticus Ross speak at length at one of these events so it, truly, was a great keynote. The video embedded above features highlights from the Q&A that was moderated by music journalist Shirley Halperin of Billboard magazine and it gives a great feel for the whole hour-long event, synthesized into an 8-minute video. The Q&A was livestreamed so if you missed watching it live yesterday, you can check out this video and see the greatest hits from the discussion.

Here Are Photos Of Tom Mison, John Noble & The Headless Horseman At The ‘Sleepy Hollow’ Pop-Up Pumpkin Patch In NYC

Happy 'Hollow'een

While celebs are having fun here in SoCal at various pumpkin patches around town, NYC is getting in on the pumpkin patch fun with a new pop-up pumpkin patch that is themed around the Fox TV series Sleepy Hollow. To promote the pumpkin patch at NYC Greenmarket, Sleepy Hollow actors Tom Mison and John Noble were joined by the Headless Horsemen today for a press photo op that looked really fun. I can’t say that I’m loving Tom Mison in these photos as much as I do on the show (with his long hair wig) but he deffo looks good nonetheless. This looks like fun, I hope you New Yorkers are able to get out and partake in the fun this Hallowe’en.

'Fractured'

I have very exciting news to share with you guys today. My very good friend Jeremy Kost is hosting a book signing of his new photography book Fractured at Bookmarc in West Hollywood, CA on Friday and you MUST come out and meet him (folks in NYC can attend Jeremy‘s book signing at Bookmarc at 400 Bleecker St. on October 21). I’ve known Jeremy for years but I’ve been a fan of his Polaroid photography for much longer. He is truly one of my favorite photographic artists and I’m so excited for the release of his new book Fractured. Large scale prints of some of Jeremy‘s images are currently on display at the CALVIN KLEIN COLLECTION in NYC (654 Madison Avenue) until October 27 where a very limited edition of Fractured is being sold. The large scale prints on display at the Calvin Klein Collection are up for auction HERE to partially benefit ACRIA, in conjunction with Paddle 8, in their fight to help those living with HIV/AIDS. Yes, my friend is amazing. Jeremy is graciously sharing the photos featured in the gallery presented here to give you a taste of his work. If you like what you see, you can come out and buy a copy of Fractured and meet Jeremy Kost at his book signing this Friday:


The images shared here are available in the artist’s edition of Fractured which comes with an actual Polaroid photo of your choice (details HERE). Jeremy gave me a large size Polaroid print as a housewarming gift when I moved to LA all those years ago and it has hung in my various homes ever since. He is a very talented photographer and I hope you can come out and meet the man in person. Hopefully I’ll see you at the book signing on Friday!

Britney Spears Launches Her Lingerie Line ‘The Intimate Collection’ (And A New Hair’do) In Germany

Nice bob, Brit

Thus far, our dear Britney Spears has made in-person appearances in NYC, NY, London, England and Warsaw, Poland to launch the sale of her new lingerie line called The Intimate Collection. Earlier today, Britney made another in-person appearance, this time in Oberhausen, Germany and as you can see she also debuted a cute new shorter hair’do. Because of Britney‘s love of wigs, I’m not sure if this is her actual hair or just another wig … but no matter, the bob cut looks insanely cute on her! I’m loving the white outfit, the hair and, of course, the facial expressions. This has been Britney‘s most successful world tour in ages. I can’t wait to see where she pops up next!
