Warner Brothers Release Fringe And Top Gear Season 13 Blu-rays And DVDs. Warner Brothers has released two of its top shows’ seasons on Blu-ray and DVD: “Fringe” and “Top Gear.” Rolling Stone calls “Fringe” the “most exciting drama around right now.” Perhaps that’s because in the world of “Fringe,” there are alternate worlds, and a plethora of characters, including shape shifters, cryonic heads, and people who can turn into ashes at the snap of a finger. The science fiction drama that follows three FBI agents through a parallel reality that threatens to destroy reality as everyone knows it. Agents Peter Bishop (Joshua Jackson, “Dawson’s Creek”), Walter Bishop (John Noble, “24” and “The Unit”) and Olivia Dunham (Anna Torv, “Mistresses”) deal with their mind-bending investigation as best as they can.
BAFTA-winning show “Top Gear” goes into its 13th season, and is also available on Blu-ray and DVD. The BBC series starring Jeremy Clarkson, James May and Richard Hammond has several follow-up experiences after their challenge in Vietnam, a 75-minute episode where they traveled 1,000 miles via motorcycle from Ho Chii Minh to Ha Long in eight days. In its 13th season, there will be more aggressive road tests on the latest models of cars and motorcycles, man vs. machine experiments, and even power tests on some of the world’s most exotic cars.

In addition, The Stig continues to put the rich and famous through their paces out on the test track in ‘The Star in the Reasonably Priced Car’. Celebrities include Michael Schumacher, Olympic Gold sprinter Usain Bolt, actress Sienna Miller (who has just passed her driving test), AC/DC’s singer Brian Johnson and ‘the biggest petrolhead in the world’ Jay Leno. And in a television-first, Stig takes off his helmet to reveal just who he really is. Fans of the series won’t want to miss that.

Taylor Swift admits writing songs about her heartbreak is therapeutic. Taylor Swift finds love ‘confusing’. The 20-year-old country star – who has dated Taylor Lautner and was famously dumped by Joe Jonas on the phone ‘ struggles to cope with the complexities of dating and relationships and tries to make sense of her romantic life by writing songs inspired by her romantic liaisons. She said: ‘Naturally, I want to write songs about love and relationships because I find it find it all very confusing. When I meet someone new I live somewhere between hope and fear. Hope that this time it could be different, and fear that it will turn out like it has before.’ While Taylor admits writing songs about her heartbreak is therapeutic, she feels ‘vulnerable’ when she listens back to the lyrics. She told our source: ”ve written all the songs on it about things that have happened over the last two years, and a lot has happened over the last two years. It’s been very eventful, a lot of adventures and misadventures. I have a lot fun doing this and getting to write songs about what happens in my life, but putting it all out there in your music ‘ all the details ‘ you’re taking a chance with that because you are very vulnerable.’ Taylor also revealed she now hopes to put the Kanye West controversy completely behind her. At the 2009 MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs), the rapper interrupted Taylor in the middle of her acceptance speech for the Best Female Video prize to tell the audience Beyonce Knowles should have won, resulting in an avalanche of criticism. Taylor ‘ who, along with Kanye, performed at the 2010 VMAs in September – said: ‘For me, I felt like performing VMAs was the best way to go out there and sing how I was actually feeling, being there really helped put all that behind me.’

Listener data from Last.fm has shown that Lady Gaga is both one of the most listened to and one of the most deleted artists around. Despite the pop princess’s huge popularity and success, fans are deleting her songs from their public playlists to keep their listening stealth. In fact, seven of her songs are in the top ten most deleted tracks. To date, Lady GaGa has already received over 40 music awards in 2010 and she has recently been nominated for 5 MTV EMA’s, making her one of the hottest artists around. People are listening to her music in their droves as she often will appear on the top listened to tracks on Last.fm, but people don’t want to include her on their public profile. So is Lady GaGa the ultimate of guilty pleasures?

Last.fm top 10 deleted songs

Lady Gaga ‘ Bad Romance
Lady Gaga ‘ Paparazzi
Ke$ha ‘ TiK ToK

Matt Sheret, Data Griot at Last.fm commented, ‘Artists such as Lady GaGa along with Justin Bieber and Ke$ha are examples of artists that people seem to love to hate’. Despite people not wanting to be seen to be listening to Lady GaGa, her recent award success and regular appearance in the Last.fm’s most listened to chart, shows that people love her music but might not want to be labelled as one of her ‘monsters’.’
