The 82-year-old, whose career spans over 60 years, keeps making films, but is not happy about the current state of the movie industry. She explains, “I have too much energy to stop working and I don’t believe in retirement.” Bacall says making films “means to me mostly…staying alive.” THE BIG SLEEP star blames television for dragging down the standard of films saying, “I think there are still people who really want to do good work. “Unfortunately, in television, sometimes they want to do good work but a lot of the time they’re doing terrible work and I think that has affected moviemaking badly.” She adds, “At the end of every movie, always I’m feeling, Continue reading →
Nuns were displeased when shown a video of Lady Gaga’s performance of “Paparazzi” on Sunday. After watching Lady Gaga’s controversial performance of her song, “Paparazzi,” at the MTV VMAs last Sunday, nuns from the Catholic school in which the singer was raised are in shock by what she has become, sources report. Educated at one of the Sacred Heart schools in New York City, her former teachers were most definitely displeased when shown a video of last Sunday’s performance, featuring a pants-less Lady Gaga choreographed towards her own graphic death at the performance’s finale. Despite Lady Gaga’s current success in the pop music world, the nuns at her former school are far from pleased with their famous alumna. The pop star, predominantly known for her scanty and outrageous outfits and tell-all exploits, is not considered to be a revered alumna from the Sacred Heart School on East 91st Street. According to the New York Post, the school’s spokesperson could not be reached after news of the nuns’ reactions hit the press.
Lady Gaga isn’t ashamed of admitting that she doesn’t like to wear underwear. “I don’t really go in for wearing underwear,’ the Daily Star quoted her as saying. “Not very much, no. It’s rare that I decide to put some on. There’s no point really – and I’m not ashamed of it,” she added. Meanwhile, the ‘Poker Face’ hitmaker continued her shock tactics as she stepped out in a bizarre see-through red lace catsuit teamed up with eye mask and eccentric spiky hairpiece at the New York fashion week. The singer’s modesty was said to be hardly covered by a barely there red G-string and an almost-strategically placed ruffle on her costume. She revealed that her hectic schedule might give her little chance of finding a new man. However, ‘Poker Face’ hitmaker admits she is finding other ways to relieve the tension of being a single girl. ”I am single and a workaholic and very lonely,” the Sun quoted her as saying. “But I’m good . Me and my vibrator are very happy,” she added. Meanwhile, Michael Bolton has teamed up with the 23-year-old singer as she helped pen songs for his forthcoming new album. Her hit track Poker Face has become the most downloaded song in the five-year history of the Official UK Downloads Chart. The singer’s another hit ‘Just Dance’ is also said to be at No3 in the list. !”I am honoured to be the songwriter and performer behind the No1 and No3 songs,” the Sun quoted her as saying. Rock band Kings Of Leon’s ‘Sex On Fire’ is at No2, while the group’s ‘Use Somebody’ is at No4. Some of the other artists featuring in top ten are Leona Lewis, La Roux, Alexandra Burke and Snow Patrol.
Madonna is to duet with Janet Jackson. The two singers are working on a tribute to Janet’s late brother Michael Jackson after bonding over dinner after Sunday’s (13.09.09) MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs), which saw the ‘Together Again’ star perform ‘Scream’, a track originally recorded with her sibling, and Madonna make a tearful speech about her regret at “abandoning” the pop icon before his death. A source said: “It was a meeting of two great musical minds. Madonna was so impressed with Janet’s tribute to Michael that they started talking about how great it would be to honour him by doing something together. “With that one performance Janet proved she’s back on top of her game. And Continue reading →

Lady GaGa had a reporter at a press conference in Germany thrown out by security on Monday when a local journalist questioned the pop star about rumors she is a hermaphrodite. (In biological context, a hermaphrodite is an organism that has both male and female reproductive organs). Internet footage of the singer onstage earlier this year sparked fresh debate as to whether or not the hitmaker had both female and male reproductive organs, because a bulge could clearly be seen. GaGa has since slammed the rumors as “ridiculous,” but the controversy is refusing to go away, and she was put on the spot by a interviewer during the Berlin press launch of her new range of headphones. When asked by German TV personality Collien Fernandes if she had a penis, Gaga snarled, “My vagina is offended by this question,” before security pounced on the woman and escorted her from the IFA electronics trade show. Fernandes is dumbfounded by her harsh treatment and insists she did nothing wrong. She says, “I don’t really understand the fuss. It’s obvious someone would ask her this question after the picture was all over the news.” Lady GaGa’s Heartbeats line of jewel-shaped earphones was launched in collaboration with hip-hop super-producer Dr. Dre and Monster electronics.
Mika was a “weird” teenager. The Love Today singer – who is known for his outrageous outfits and wild curly hair – says his new LP, The Boy Who Knew Too Much, was inspired by his turbulent adolescence, which he now wants to forget. He said: “It’s still joyful pop music. I needed to liberate myself from my childhood – I was a weird, reclusive teen.” The 26-year-old pop star’s forthcoming album, the follow-up to 2007′s Life in Cartoon Motion, even contains a vengeful break-up song inspired by a bitter split. Lebanon-born Mika explained to Britain’s Daily Star newspaper: “There’s a song called Rain, which was a break-up letter, but I thought it would be funny to put a disco beat behind it. It’s Continue reading →
