Katy Perry Thrilled About Dual Citizenship

Katy Perry's marriage to British funnyman Russell Brand is already paying great dividends - she can now dual for dual citizenship and avoid the long queues in immigration at London airports. The "I Kissed a Girl" hitmaker wed Brand in India in October, and insists easy entry to the U.K. was not a factor in her decision to get married - but it helps.

She hopes the citizenship will make her frequent transAtlantic trips less stressful when she touches down in London. Perry tells Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine, "A gay couple I know are going to get married for British citizenship and I'm like, 'Oh!' "

"But of course I want to get dual citizenship. Those lines at Heathrow (airport) are disgusting. So, I mean, that would be a perk, right?"

Uncle Believes Demi Lovato Is Exhausted, Blaming Her Handlers

Troubled star Demi Lovato's uncle has attacked his niece's handlers for not giving the teenager enough time off and working her too hard. The singer pulled out of the remaining dates of the Jonas Brothers' world tour last weekend, October 31 and checked into rehab to tackle "emotional and physical issues".

Reports have surfaced that Lovato fought with one of her backing dancers before quitting the tour, but her uncle Francisco Lovato insists the rehab spell has more to do with the fact his niece is exhausted. He tells website TooFab, "I saw Demi in August, I went to one of her concerts with The Jonas Brothers outside of Sacramento, and she totally rocked it out, and did a great show, there was great energy."

"She was in good spirits it seemed, but I made a small comment, and the one thing I said to her was, 'Demi, you're working hard, and I know people love your talent, and you're busting it out... ' but then she turned around and looked at me with a major look of seriousness, and she said to me, 'Look, I work really hard.' She had this look of exhaustion."

"I spoke to (Demi's mom) Dianna... and she said, 'I'm trying to get her two days off in a row, because she's having to work day in and day out.' I'd like Demi to chill out for a little." He's not the only family member worried about how hard the teen star works - her father, Patrick, has blamed the "pressures" of fame for her problems.

Michael Jackson's Family Fuming Over New Album Release, Branding It Fake

Sony Music Group is facing protest from Michael Jackson's family regarding the release of his new album which is simply titled "Michael". Brian Oxman, an attorney for Joe Jackson, said in a statement, "If Michael had wanted this music released he would have done so before his death."

"The songs which are being released on the new Michael Jackson album were unfinished and incomplete tracks that Michael said over and over many times he never wanted released," Oxman stated further. "We should honor Michael Jackson's wishes."

Complicating the controversy even more, Katherine Jackson branded some of the songs listed in the album fake. Michael's two oldest children, Prince Michael and Paris, additionally said that they were present when their dad recorded the songs in question, and claimed the album versions don't match up with what they heard in the studio.

Katherine then takes one of Michael's unreleased songs out of JacksonSecretVault and gives it for fans' listening pleasure. "In an effort to overcome the confusion as to the authenticity of the track the estate has recently released we want to give an actual authentic Michael Jackson track to the world ... for free," a representative told TMZ.

Despite those complaints, Sony Music which has announced December 14 as a release date for Michael's album insisted they have done forensic studies to prove that the songs are authentic. "We have complete confidence in the results of our extensive research as well as the accounts of those who were in the studio with Michael that the vocals on the new album are his own," the company said in a defensive statement.

In fact, they have revealed an official teaser to Michael's lead single titled "Breaking News". The new song will be debuted in full next Monday, November 8.

French Star Delphine Chaneac Rumored to Play Villain in 'Transformers 4'

French star Delphine Chaneac is set for an all-action role in the fourth "Transformers" film, if online gossip is to be believed. The "Splice" star is rumored to be in the running to play a villain in the sequel and she couldn't be happier.

She tells WENN, "I want to do more physical movies, like the 'X-Men' or 'Transformers'... and somebody sent me an email a few days ago, saying you're going to be in 'Transformers 4'. That's great because I want to work more with the body, because, in France, there aren't a lot of action films... and I don't want to be the prettiest girl in the film, or anything like that. I'd like to challenge myself. I think my look and my physical abilities could fit in those kind of projects."

Chaneac is currently working alongside former "Terminator" star Edward Furlong, James Caan and Paul Sorvino in a real-life tale about the Jewish Mafia, entitled "For The Love of Money". But she admits her passions lie with vampire movies and "James Bond", "I am as well a big fan of vampire movies and it would be fantastic to play a James Bond Girl. It would be more of an honor than an actual goal."

Preview: Daniel Radcliffe in 'Simpsons' Treehouse of Horror XXI

FOX has unleashed four sneak peeks to the annual "Treehouse of Horror" episode of "The Simpsons" which is airing this Sunday, November 7. Among the pile is the clip where Daniel Radcliffe's vampire saves Lisa from an approaching bus. It spoofs a "Twilight" scene where Robert Pattinson's Edward Cullen protects Kristen Stewart's Bella from a skidding car.

"It's a huge honor. The Halloween episode has become a big tradition in The Simpsons so I'm very excited to be part of it," Radcliffe said. "I play a Twilight-inspired vampire who befriends and falls in love with Lisa. It's actually the culmination of my life so far. It's everything I have been living for! There was a time when I was 12 or 13 when 50 per cent of everything I knew about the world came from The Simpsons so this is a big deal."

The other three clips display footage from the different segments of the special episode as well as the opening which features Professor Frink. In a takeoff on 1989 thriller "Dead Calm", Homer and Marge save Hugh Laurie's Roger who escaped an attempted poisoning on his ship. Convinced that Roger is sabotaging their getaway and plotting a murder of his own, Homer and Marge take matters into their own hands.

Meanwhile, Bart and Millhouse witness board games coming to life and they must beat all the challenges before they are allowed to return home. If one recalls this has a similar tone to "Jumanji" which is starring Robin Williams.

Rihanna Is Scandalous in New Racy Song 'S and M'

Rihanna gets X-rated in "S&M", a newly-leaked dance track from her forthcoming studio album "Loud". The Barbadian songstress calls her devotees to explore their naughty side on the dance floor in this upbeat tune produced by Stargate and co-written by Ester Dean.

"I may be bad but I'm perfectly good/ There's sex in the air. I don't care, I love the smell of it/ Sticks and stones may break my bones but chains and whips excite me," RiRi belts out her joys of sadomasochistic sexual endeavors through the raunchy lines.

"Loud" will be out in the United States on November 16. "Only Girl (In the World)" serves as the first single, Drake-assisted "What's My Name?" is the second, and this racy tune reportedly will be released as the third offering from the album.

Janet Jackson Not Quitting Music

Janet Jackson has assured fans she has not quit music for good - she's planning to hit the studio next year to record a new album. The pop star has put her singing career "on the back burner" recently to concentrate on her acting work, with roles in Tyler Perry's movie sequel "Why Did I Get Married Too?" and his upcoming drama "For Colored Girls".

But Jackson is adamant she's not given up pop for good, and will return to making music in 2011. She tells Larry King, "Just because I've made two films back to back... it's always been a dream of mine to do something like this, so I kind of put music on the back burner to do this. And I will continue to do more films. But definitely, I can't give up music, it's in my blood. And I love, love, love performing. So I will make more music. I think I have thought to go into the studio (sic) and just take my time, fool around, next year."

Also, Janet Jackson has become the latest star to back an anti-bullying campaign - she is urging troubled kids to seek help before their problems worsen. The singer/actress has long struggled with self-esteem issues and insists she can empathize with youngsters who have been targeted by schoolyard bullies.

Jackson has signed up to help the Trevor Project, an organization which offers an around-the-clock counseling hotline to help troubled teens. She tells Larry King, "(I was) one of those kids... holding everything inside... internalizing everything. And that really can affect you, and feeling helpless and hopeless, and finding that person that you can trust, that adult, like I did later on in life, that I felt comfortable and safe to tell my issues, my worries, my pains, my aches to. This is what the Trevor Project is really all about. And they have a 24-hour hotline... There's someone there that you can speak with 24 hours that will be there for you."

And the star insists bullies need help too, because their behavior often stems from troubles at home. She adds, "I think it really says more about themselves, how they feel about themselves. There's something about themselves, I feel, that doesn't set right, something - whether they hate, they dislike, something that may be going on, issues at home with their parents. Who knows what it is? But it's something going on inside of them. And I think it's them lashing out."

Official Teaser of Michael Jackson's New Single 'Breaking News'

Ahead of the world premiere of Michael Jackson's new single "Breaking News", an official trailer is brought forward to tide fans over. It kicks off with footage of media around the globe reporting breaking news to his tabloid scandals and legal troubles.

Before the teaser comes to an end, an upbeat tune which is most likely part of the upcoming single is played on the background. No vocal is featured on it, but text announcing the November 8 release of the song is put on the display as reminder and a bit of Michael's signature croon closes the trailer.

The album where "Breaking News" will appear is simply titled "Michael" and will come out in the United States on December 14. It was recorded in 2007 in some places from a friend's home in New Jersey to studios in Las Vegas and Los Angeles with a small group of handpicked collaborators.

One of the producers who has worked with him is Mark Ronson. He is now waiting a phone call from the late King of Pop's label to find out whether or not his production work makes the cut to the album, sharing to the Daily Star, "It's a really beautiful song called 'Lovely Way'. I don't know if it's made the album but I hope he would dig it if he was here. It's in the vein of Elton John's 'Goodbye Yellow Brick Road' and John Lennon's 'Imagine'."

Girl, what is this about?/ Them other shorties I don't care about." McCall then continues, "So let's retrace our steps, figure out where we were/ Let's talk this through."

Behind those closed doors you can make a purchase on the Internet and feel completely anonymous."

Jamiroquai's Jay Kay: Lady GaGa Is Nothing More Than Marketing Tool

Jamiroquai frontman Jay Kay has taken aim at pop phenomenon Lady GaGa, dismissing her as a "money-making freak". The "Space Cowboy" hitmaker is well known for his outspoken views, and recently launched a tirade against British pop star Cheryl Cole and Australian singer Dannii Minogue just hours before he performed on U.K. talent show "The X Factor" - on which they are both judges.

And the star didn't hold back when he was asked for his opinion on pop's current first lady GaGa, insisting she is nothing more than a music industry marketing tool. He says, "Lady Gaga is a money-making freak for her label. We (Jamiroquai) are not like that. We do music, not marketing. Lady GaGa is obviously a phenomenon. The world loves a freak. If the record companies see that they can make money with them, they will do anything."

"Don't worry, next time we'll come dressed in asparagus. And with tomatoes too."

Selena Gomez's Word of Support for Demi Lovato Denied

Internet gossips began speculating about the 18 year old's relationship with Gomez, alleging a rumored feud between the former best pals could have played a part in Lovato's troubles. A statement purportedly written by Gomez then surfaced online, in which she supposedly admitted feeling "like a horrible friend" for not supporting the singer/actress.

But Gomez's representative tells GossipCop.com that the message is "not her" and that "no statement has been made" by the "Wizards of Waverly Place" star.

Judge Clears Kanye West, Suge Knight Plans Appeal

Hip-hop mogul Marion Suge Knight has lost his long running legal battle with Kanye West over a shooting at a Florida nightclub in 2005. Knight sued the "Stronger" hitmaker over allegations he was shot in the leg during a robbery at a party hosted by the star in Miami Beach five years ago.

He claimed West was responsible for the incident because he should have increased security at the venue to stop a gun being smuggled in, and demanded more than $1 million in damages. A judge in Miami threw out the lawsuit on Thursday, November 4 after concluding there was not enough evidence to prove the shooting could have been prevented.

But Knight is not going to let go the case easily. According to AP, he plans to appeal against the judge's decision that dismissed his lawsuit against Kanye.

Lindsay Lohan Takes Time Out of Rehab for Shopping Trip

Lindsay Lohan has taken a break from her rehab stint. The 24-year-old troubled actress, who is ordered to stay at the Betty Ford Center in Rancho Mirage, California until January 3, 2011, reportedly made a quick trip outside the facility on Tuesday, November 2 - she shopped at Forever 21 in Palm Desert, California with an unidentified female - Radar Online reported.

The store manager Tiffany Bennett confirmed Lindsay's visit to the site, saying "Lindsay came in two days ago with another young woman. Lindsay kept to herself, but was friendly. Lindsay bought a leopard sweater, a lot of pajama bottoms, and a ton of socks. Her choices were for leisure wear."

Tiffany went on saying that Lindsay spent about $200 total and "paid for the items herself." The "Confessions of a Teenage Drama Queen" actress' female pal bought up around $300 worth of merchandise. "We were surprised that Lindsay was so low key," the store manager said.

"The only thing she asked us to do was to hold some of the items at the front until she was finished picking things out," Tiffany continued, adding that Lindsay "looks really, really good." After the retail therapy, the "Freaky Friday" star was said going "to the Starbucks next door all the time."

Adding that Lindsay was in her good condition during the Tuesday outing, an employee at the store told E! Online, "She looked good. She had her hair down and was wearing sunglasses, a white T-shirt and jeans. She seemed pleasant."

Lindsay will be allowed to leave the sober living place earlier next year. However, she still will be a subject to random drug testing until her next court date on February 25, 2011. Lindsay, who left the Los Angeles County women's jail in Lynwood on September 24, was hauled back in front of the judge for violating her probation stemming from her DUI arrests in 2007 by failing her court-ordered drug tests.

"He kept saying he wasn't on anything. He said, 'Mother, you don't believe me'. He kept saying, 'My own mother don't (sic) believe me'."

Katy Perry Wants to Do Racy Burlesque Photo Shoot

Katy Perry has vowed never to strip for Playboy magazine - she's planning a sexy, Dita Von Teese-style burlesque photo shoot instead. The "I Kissed a Girl" singer is known for her fun-filled, saucy stage antics, but she's adamant she would never bare all for the popular men's magazine.

Instead the newlywed wants to tease her fans with a flesh-flashing shoot - complete with racy black lingerie and vampish make-up, inspired by burlesque beauty Von Teese.

Perry tells Britain's Cosmopolitan magazine, "I like to play that (sexy) card because it's fun and definitely in my deck, but I like to tease. I'm like a burlesque girl. I definitely won't be doing a Playboy spread but I will be doing a kind of Dita Von Teese style (session)."

Miley Cyrus and Liam Hemsworth Breaking-Up for the Second Time

It turned out that it wasn't only Miley Cyrus' parents who ended their relationship but the 17-year-old Disney beauty as well. A source recently told People that Miley and her on/off boyfriend Liam Hemsworth have split for the second time.

"Their on-and-off-again relationship is currently off. But you never know with Miley and Liam. They could be back on at some point," the source opened up. Another insider added, "There was no drama. The relationship just ran its course. They were good friends first and remain friends."

Although the sources didn't mention the reason behind the separation, a source told Zack Taylor that Miley wants to focus on her family matter first. "Liam is back in Australia, and Miley is at home supporting her mom and dad through this. It's been very tough on her, and right now her family comes first, not boys. You can say they are on a little 'break' for the time being," the source was quoted as saying.

Earlier this week, Hollywood Life reported that Liam was spotted over the weekend making out with part-time model Yolanda Vendy in Melbourne. And a source hinted to the site at that time that Liam has been back on a single market, saying "If (Liam and Yolanda) were hooking up - it wasn't cheating."

Miley and Liam began dating in June 2009 when the two filmed "The Last Song", which was released earlier this year. In August, the couple decided to go their separate ways only to rekindle their romance the following month. While Liam is said currently in Australia, Miley has been in Madrid for her appearance at Sunday, November 7's MTV European Music Awards.

Amir to start shooting next February

Aamir Khan, who took a long sabbatical from acting after ‘3 Idiots’, says he will start shooting for director Reema Katgi’s suspense drama in February next year.
‘I have recently signed Reema Katgi’s film. Reema and Zoya (Akhtar) have written this film. It’s a suspense drama. We will start shooting end of February. After ‘3 Idiots’, this is the first film I have signed. The casting of the film has not been finished yet,’ Aamir told reporters at the DVD launch of ‘Peepli Live’ here Thursday.
Aamir is excited and said: ‘It’s been a long time I have done shooting for any film so I am quite excited to start again.’
Produced by actor-director Farhan Akhtar and Ritesh Sidhwani, it’s Kagti’s second film after her critically acclaimed movie ‘Honeymoon Travels Pvt Ltd’.

"Action Replay" Review

Movie Review: Action Replay; Cast: Aishwarya Rai, Akshay Kumar, Aditya Roy Kapoor; Director: Vipul Amrutlal Shah; Rating: ** – back to the future of Bollywood.

Hollywood and Bollywood, despite similarities in their names, hardly have anything in common. Except that the latter often borrows concepts from its older cousin. Yet, it manages to make something different from the original. ‘Action Replayy’ is an example of that.
When proposed to, Bunty (Aditya Roy Kapoor) refuses to marry his girlfriend because he has seen his parents Kishan (Akshay Kumar) and Mala (Aishwarya Rai) fight since he was born. Even on their 35th marriage anniversary, they fight as if they were sworn enemies. A determined Bunty steals a ride on a time machine invented by his girlfriend’s grandfather to go back in time to make it all right.
Doing this will be tougher than he had imagined as he finds his parents very different from what they are today. Parenting ones parents, Bunty would realise, is the toughest job in the whole wide world.
The basic premise isn’t new. Even before ‘Back To The Future’ made it famous, travelling to the past to correct one’s present was staple food of science fictions. It is, after all, the ultimate human fantasy.
What is new is how ‘Action Replayy’ lays bare the difference between two of the biggest commercial filmmaking centres of the world, Hollywood and Bollywood. While in ‘Back To The Future’ the stress is on science fiction and survival of the time traveller, here it is on human relations and the various emotions associated with it.
Also the paper thin, cliched villains of the film shows that Bollywood is still in a time-wrap. But ‘Action Replayy’ can perhaps afford to, it being a time-wrap story and all.
Lot of efforts have been made to get the sets right, and surprisingly it often works. Vignettes of ancient advertisements, painstakingly made a part of the set by the filmmakers, make it a thrill to watch, especially for those from that era.
The costumes, however, try too hard to be retro. If you watch films of those period, they were not so flowery and jazzy as in this film. However, given the lighter vein in which the film is made, it is perhaps justified.
Aishwarya and Akshay are as good as Bollywood can get, which isn’t much. Pritam’s music is average and only when we do an action replay from the high plinth of the future, will we come to know the corners of the world he has plagiarised from.
Few spoofs are hilarious, especially the one on the Gujarati band led by Mahesh Kumar whose brother can sing in two voices. The one where the son is desperately trying to make his retro father understand the concept of sex and uses the typical Hindi film analogy of two flowers meeting is a laugh-riot.
Despite this the film misses many opportunities for gags that can easily be part of a time travel film. Just the inclusion of names common today like Obama, Mallika Sherawat, Saif Ali Khan etc., does not necessarily make it humorous.
‘Action Replayy’ despite its best intentions and few successes, fails in many others. Perhaps it will take someone else to say action-reply and better the present for Bollywood.

I fear, masses may not like ‘Dhobi Ghat’: Aamir

Superstar Aamir Khan says his forthcoming film ‘Dhobi Ghat’, which is his wife Kiran Rao’s directorial debut, may not be liked by the masses.
‘I fear that masses may not like ‘Dhobi Ghat’ because it is a very fine and delicate film. People who understand film, people who are sensitive – this film is for them. This is not a mainstream film,’ said Aamir.
‘Dhobi Ghat’ tells the tale of how people from different classes drawn together in compelling relationships. Shai (Monica Dogra), an affluent investment banker on a sabbatical, strikes up an unusual friendship with young laundry boy Munna (Prateik Babbar), and has a brief dalliance with painter Arun (Aamir Khan).
As they slip away from familiar moorings and come closer, the city finds its way into the crevices of their inner worlds.
Though he is apprehensive about people’s reaction, Aamir says ‘Dhobi Ghat’ is the best offering from his production house.
‘I think this is the best film of my production house. I am really happy and excited about this film,’ he said.
‘Dhobi Ghat’ is scheduled to hit theatres Jan 31, 2011.

Kanye West's Star-Studded Single 'All of the Lights' Leaks

Kanye West's highly-anticipated all-star single featuring artists including Rihanna, Sir Elton John and Alicia Keys has been leaked online weeks before its release date.

West has been the victim of a track leak again - his next single from upcoming album, "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy", has hit the internet early. "All of the Lights", which features 11 guest vocalists including Black Eyed Peas' Stacy Ferguson, John Legend and La Roux's Elly Jackson, was leaked online via YouTube.com. The album is due for release on November 22.

The wait is finally over. Michael Jackson's newly-completed studio album has got its official release date. On November 4, it was announced that the posthumous effort will be made available for purchase across United States on December 14.

"Tomorrow, an exclusive teaser for the project will appear on www.michaeljackson.com," it was revealed more. "On Monday, November 8th the world premiere of 'Breaking News,' a full track from the album, will stream on the site for one week only."

The album is simply titled "Michael" and will be released by Epic Records in conjunction with the Estate of the late King of Pop. It was recorded in 2007 in some places from a friend's home in New Jersey to studios in Las Vegas and Los Angeles with a small group of handpicked collaborators.

Cover art of the album boasts a picture of Michael fronting other small images of him which depict his most iconic looks from "Off the Wall" and "Thriller" to "Bad" and "Smooth Criminal". It was an oil painting created by Kadir Nelson in 2009. "[It] takes us on a journey through some key moments and important people in Michael Jackson's life," it was explained.

Ke$ha's Brand New Song 'Cannibal' Emerges

Another fresh material from Ke$ha has been unveiled. Following the Bangladesh-produced "Sleazy", this new tune which is title track of her upcoming album "Cannibal" is seemingly offered as part of iTunes countdown to the CD release on November 22 this year.

In her signature rap-style singing which is blended with auto-tune, Ke$ha warns the boys of what she is capable of, especially now that she is famous. "I'm gonna eat you fool/ I eat boys up, breakfast and lunch/ Then when I'm thirsty, I drink their blood," she jumps on the track.

Beside waiting for the album to come out, fans are also looking forward to a music video of Ke$ha's current No. 1 single "We R Who We R" which was shot earlier this week. The filming was quite intense with some fire and explosion set for a performance scene in a downtown L.A. street tunnel. The video hasn't got any premiere date so far.

Taylor Swift Debuts Ten 'Speak Now' Songs on Billboard Hot 100

Taylor Swift has followed up her U.S. album chart success on Wednesday, November 3 by debuting 10 tracks on the Billboard Hot 100 pop countdown. All 10 new entries feature on the star's latest hit album "Speak Now", which debuted at number one on the album chart after selling more than one million copies in its first week of release.

But Swift isn't the only female artist celebrating pop chart success - as expected Ke$ha has become only the 17th artist in the modern chart era to debut at number one. Her song "We R Who We R" has rocketed to number one thanks mainly to 280,000 digital downloads.

"Like a G6" by Far East Movement drops a spot to two on the new chart, while Bruno Mars' "Just the Way You Are" rounds out the new top three in America.

New 'Deathly Hallows: Part I' Clip Sees Multiple Harry Potters

Another scene from "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I" has been previewed in a clip. Posted on Harry Potter Facebook page, the snippet shares the transformation of Ron, Hermione, Fred, George, Fleur and Mundungus Fletcher into Harry using Polyjuice Potion to transport Harry without being detected.

To welcome the impending release of the movie on November 19, AMC Theatres plan to screen "Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix" and "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince" before the midnight opening of "Deathly Hallows: Part I". The fifth and sixth installments of the adventure film franchise will be played on November 18 starting 6:00 P.M.

"Deathly Hallows: Part I" begins as Harry, Ron and Hermione set out on their perilous mission to track down and destroy the secret to Voldemort's immortality and destruction - the Horcruxes. On their own, without the guidance of their professors or the protection of Professor Dumbledore, the three friends must now rely on one another more than ever. But there are Dark Forces in their midst that threaten to tear them apart.

"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II" will be next released on July 15, 2011. David Yates directs these two "Deathly Hallows" films. 

'Spider-Man' Musical Hit With Another Delay

U2 stars Bono and The Edge's much-anticipated "Spider-Man" musical has been hit by another major blow - the project looks set for yet another delay due to an ongoing safety investigation. "Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark" has been under investigation by the New York State Department of Labor for its high-flying stunts, which left one actor with two broken wrists in October.

Safety Inspectors visited Broadway's Foxwoods Theater on Wednesday, November 3 but had to schedule a second inspection when producers were unable to show them every planned stunt. They have been told they cannot stage the show for the public until state inspectors have approved all the special effects and safety procedures, following actor Kevin Aubin's accident.

The New York Times reports that means it's unlikely the show will begin previews on November 14, as scheduled. "Spider-Man Turn Off the Dark", which features a score by U2 stars The Edge and Bono, has been in the works for six years and producers had initially planned to begin previews in February this year, but financial and technical issues and casting problems prompted them to reschedule the show.

The ambitious $60 million (GBP40 million) production - Broadway's most expensive - was expected to begin previews on November 14 and officially open in January 2011.

Emma Watson Won't Give Up College Experience for Anything

"Harry Potter" star Emma Watson is thoroughly enjoying her time at America's Brown University - because most fellow students have no idea exactly who she is. The young Brit has blended in to the Ivy League college in Rhode Island and insists right now she'd prefer to be there, studying, than on a movie set.

She tells U.S. magazine Parade, "I get some amazing offers to act, and sometimes it's hard to say, 'No, I'm going to stay here and do my homework.' People are like, 'What do you mean she's not available?' This college experience is really important to me, and I won't give it up for anything."

And she is a big fan of life on campus, "My days as a student are structured so differently from being on a movie set, where I had people constantly telling me what to do. When you're filming, someone needs to know where you are every second of the day."

"Here, no one tells me what time I can have lunch, when I can go to the bathroom. It's incredibly empowering and liberating. My friends think I'm crazy because I get so much joy out of really simple pleasures like staying up late talking or deciding to go for a walk."

"The amazing thing is that everyone here is interested in their own lives, so they aren't nosy about mine. I'm used to people being intrusive and gossipy, but I can be anonymous. My best friend at Brown has never seen a 'Harry Potter' movie or read the books, and one guy I dated didn't know anything about the films, much less that I was one of the stars - which I found hilarious."

Emma Watson Spotted Stepping Out With Mystery Man

Emma Watson may have found herself a new boyfriend following her split from model/singer George Craig in September. The Hermione Granger of "Harry Potter" movie series was spotted with a mystery man on Tuesday night, November 2.

In pictures obtained by Daily Mail, Emma, who looked stunning in her pixie cut, was seen sitting in the back of a taxi with the male companion. The two were seen sharing smile as they headed home after reportedly enjoying time at a London nightclub.

And it turned out it wasn't only Emma who was spotted in a night outing with a new companion. Her ex-boyfriend George was also photographed with a female companion on the same night. However, unlike Emma who looked sober and fresh, George was snapped in bleary, half-closed eyes, seemingly enjoying his night a little too much.

Emma has been in London as she enjoys a break from Rhode Island's prestigious Brown University and "Harry Potter". Though she has finished "Harry Potter" productions, fans are still able to see Emma on big screen. Her upcoming movies include "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part I", "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part II", "My Week with Marilyn" and "The Perks of Being a Wallflower"

Stars Caught in Embarrassing Moments (Part I)

Celebs can't always be as glamorous and flawless as they seem. They sometimes also end up being the center of attention after unwittingly caught in the middle of embarrassing situations. Unfortunately, when stars are making any kind of mishaps, snappers are mostly nearby to capture the moments.

Listed below are those who were left red faced this year when something went wrong with their outfits during public outing or when they were entangled in unlucky situations and caught on cameras. "Hannah Montana" star Miley Cyrus, for example, made a scandalous outing by not wearing bra underneath her revealing T-shirt. Lady GaGa also made it to the list after taking a stumble, thanks to her massive platform shoes.

Wardrobe Malfunctions

Despite putting their best efforts in choosing wardrobe to look stunning, the outfits could put them into awkward situations. Victoria's Secret model Marisa Miller was left red faced during a pre-Super Bowl celebrity football game back in February for another player, funnyman Tom Arnold, accidentally grabbed the rear of her pants and exposed her assets.
Recently, Disney star Miley Cyrus let the world know how fully-grown she is. Miley was pictured braless during her outing at Patty's diner in Toluca Lake in Los Angeles. Meanwhile, Katherine Heigl nearly showed her boob on stage when accepting the Female Star of the Year Award at the ShoWest convention in March when the shoulder strap on her designer dress snapped. 
Foxy Brown flashed her panties thanks to her extremely tight and short brown outfit when performing at B.B. King Bar & Grill in New York on July 25. While onstage, her dress suddenly went up, giving audience a graphic glance of her blue undies. As for Hilary Swank, the actress unwittingly bared her hairy armpit at the red carpet of Elle Magazine's Women in Hollywood Tribute party in early October.

'Ooops' Moments

 Some big stars who successfully became media attention for their ill-fortune are Lady GaGa, Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan. GaGa nursed a bruised ego after taking an embarrassing fall during her walk at Heathrow Airport back on June 23. The singer, who is mostly known for her bizarre outfits, became a victim of her own fashion after falling from her massive platform heels. 
Just like GaGa, Britney might not want this to happen either. The "Toxic" crooner, on July 20, was unfortunately photographed with a head full of ratty extensions which might come as the result of not finishing putting in her last set of extensions. And troubled Lindsay joined the list after taking a stumble during her night out. To make the matter worse, the "Mean Girls" actress collapsed into a prickly cactus.

YouTube sensation Justin Bieber found people laughing at him after bumping his face onto a revolving door when he was in German back in May. The "Baby" hitmaker, however, decided to laugh along at the incident. Far cry from GaGa, Britney and Bieber, "CSI: Crime Scene Investigation" star Gerald McCullouch told reporter about his embarrassing incident himself. Gerald admitted that he was sentenced to counseling after New York City police caught him urinating in public back in May.

David Beckham Considers U.S. Citizenship

David Beckham wants to make his American move permanent by becoming a U.S. citizen. The British soccer star and his wife Victoria Adams moved to Los Angeles with their three sons in 2007 when he signed up to play for L.A. Galaxy.

Beckham wants to stay Stateside so his kids can finish their education there, but even though the sports star is considering making his U.S. move official, he insists he'll always be an Englishman. When asked if he would consider U.S. citizenship, he told the Los Angeles Times, "I hope so, one day. It would be nice. I'm English born and bred. And that's the way I'll always be. I'm an Englishman, you know..."

"Our boys go to school here. They're happy here. As long as they continue to be happy here, my wife's happy here, then we plan on staying.

Disney Bans Demi Lovato's Estranged Dad From Talking About Her Rehab

Representatives for Demi Lovato have warned the young star's estranged father to stop speaking out about her stint in rehab - arguing he knows "nothing" about his daughter's situation. The Disney star canceled her tour with the Jonas Brothers and checked into a treatment center at the weekend to deal with undisclosed "emotional and physical issues".

Her father, Patrick, subsequently spoke to reporters about his troubled daughter, blaming the "pressures" of fame for her problems. Patrick split from the actress/singer's mother, Dianna, in 1994 and has had little contact with the star or her sister Dallas since, and he now reveals lawyers for Disney are attempting to keep him silent about his daughter's situation.

He tells the New York Post's gossip column Page Six, "Demi won't even talk to me. I don't blame Disney (for her troubles)... Disney has been wonderful to my daughter. Now their lawyers are warning me not to say anything else. I would never blame Dianna. She is a wonderful mother. I love Demi, her sister, Dallas, and Dianna. I think about them all the time and I pray they are OK and safe."

Lovato's attorney, Jamie Young, says, "No one speaks for Demi except for her designated representatives. Unfortunately, several people have taken it upon themselves to speak out - both on and off the record - about a situation they know nothing about."

"The Fight Club" star has six children with his longtime partner Angelina Jolie, and he admits his sons, Maddox, nine, and Pax, six, are hoping their dad will one day agree to play their favorite comic book icon.

He tells People.com, "The kids think he's (Spider-man) the coolest. If there was one superhero they would want me to play, that would be the one. I'd score big with them... Hopefully they will think Dad's really cool and better than Spider-Man."

Brad Pitt is voicing a superhero in "Megamind". His character Metro Man has battled the evil Megamind for years before he decided to retire and channel his inner passion to become a singer. The movie opens wide on November 5.

Demi Lovato Gets Praise From Meaghan Martin

Demi Lovato's "Camp Rock" co-star Meaghan Martin has praised the singer/actress for checking into rehab, insisting her pal is "doing the right thing" by tackling her personal problems.

The 18 year old pulled out of a tour with the Jonas Brothers at the weekend and admitted herself to a treatment center to deal with undisclosed "emotional and physical issues". Martin admits she's glad Lovato was brave enough to take a break from work to seek help, and she's convinced her friend will bounce back.

She tells Hollyscoop, "I'm so proud of Demi. I know she is doing the right thing. I think it's awesome that she did it despite the press she may get. She's a good girl and she will find her way back."

Nude Painting of Sean Connery Discovered and to Go on Display

A nude painting of "James Bond" legend Sir Sean Connery has been unearthed in his native Scotland - and it's set to go on display at an exhibition. The veteran actor worked as a naked model for art students before his acting career took off, and the newly-discovered work was created in 1951, 11 years before his first outing as 007.

It was painted by artist Rab Webster and was discovered by relatives among a pile of paintings at his home in Selkirk, Scotland following his death last month. Nick Bihel, a relative of Webster, says, "The oil painting was part of a whole load of paintings just stacked on top of each other in a studio he used as a dark room. He never sold or exhibited any of his paintings but it is fairly obvious he was a very talented artist."

"He said Connery treated it just as a job and that he didn't say very much. I have no idea how much the painting of Sean Connery would be worth. At the moment we are just taking stock of the situation but we would like to put them on display in Selkirk in the near future. Obviously some will have to be sold as there are just too many to keep them all."

Jay-Z Blames Uncle's Murder for Dad's Abandonment

Jay-Z managed to put his bitter feelings towards his estranged dad behind him after realizing the murder of his uncle pushed his dad to drink. The "99 Problems" singer's father, Adnis Reeves, walked out on the family when the star was just 11 years old, and the rapper later let out his anger at the abandonment in his track "Moment of Clarity" following his father's death in 2003.

But in his new book, "Decoded", the star admits that he only recently understood it was the slaying of his father's brother, Ray - whose killer was never brought to justice - which pushed him to lose his grip on his responsibilities. He writes, "My dad swore revenge and became obsessed with hunting down Uncle Ray's killer. The tragedy - compounded by the injustice - drove him crazy, sent him to the bottle, and ultimately became a factor in the unraveling of my parents' marriage."

"By the time he left, he'd already given me a lot of what I'd need to survive."
