Madonna Upsets Colorado Fans By Using Guns During Performance


Madonna enraged fans in Colorado on Thursday night when she brandished a gun during her concert, three months after the state was rocked by a deadly cinema massacre.

A dozen people were murdered and another 58 injured when accused gunman James Holmes allegedly opened fire in a crowded midnight screening of The Dark Knight Rises in Aurora on July 20th.

The Material Girl took her MDNA tour to the Pepsi Center in Denver this week, but refused to censor her performance in light of the tragedy, and whipped out a pistol during her set, as she has done in all of her previous shows.

The stunt angered many audience members, and several locals even called in to NBC TV station 9News to express their disdain at her use of the gun prop, particularly in the wake of the area's recent history.

Madonna has previously defended the controversial decision to use fake weapons during her stage spectacular, saying, "It's true there is a lot of violence in the beginning of the show and sometimes the use of fake guns - but they are used as metaphors. I do not condone violence or the use of guns."

Megan Fox and Brian Austin Green Welcome Newborn Son

Megan Fox

Now that's what we call a hot mama! Megan Fox, 26, and her husband Brian Austin Green, 39, welcomed their first child together, a boy named Noah Shannon Green, on September 27. Fox, who has kept the news within the family for the past few weeks, announced Noah's arrival on Wednesday on her Facebook page. She said,
"We have been very lucky to have had a peaceful few weeks at home, but I would like to release this myself before others do. I gave birth to our son Noah Shannon Green on September 27th. He is healthy, happy, and perfect.

We are humbled to have the opportunity to call ourselves the parents of this beautiful soul and I am forever grateful to God for allowing me to know this kind of boundless, immaculate love.

Thanks to those of you who wish to send your positive energy and well wishes. May God bless you and your families abundantly."
While this is Fox's first child of her own, she has helped raise Green's son Kassius, 10, since he was a toddler. She may have only become Kassius' step-mom when she married Green in 2010, but she has known him for much longer. Fox told Harper's Bazaar in 2010, “I am a stepmother to the fullest extent. I have looked after Kassius since he was 3 and he has no memory of life without me. For some reason, no one wants to look at me that way, but I am responsible [for him]. I’ve never struggled with that, from bedtime stories to the school run.”

According to Green, Fox has been a great step-mom for Kassius, and will make a great mother for Noah. He told Details, "She is absolutely my better half in parenting. She just gets it. It's instinctual for her. She loves my son, Kassius. And from the time we started dating—you know, she was 18—she stepped in and took control. It's unbelievable."

Robert Pattinson and Kristen Stewart pictured kissing by the pool - the final shred of evidence they're back together

Just in case you were still on the fence about whether Kristen and R-Patz were back on, they've been snapped snogging half naked in the garden

The real pictures of the kiss are a little better than this
The real pictures of the kiss are a little better than this

Well that's that then.
The teeny tiny bit of hope we had that Rob Pattinson would know better than to take cheat cheat cheat Kristen Stewart back has just shrivelled up and died.
The pair have been photographed hugging and kissing by the pool at Kristen's new mansion in LA, with US website Pop Sugar revealing the pictures online.
Wearing a black bikini, Kristen is seen emerging from the water and wrapping herself around Rob, before the Twilight actor leans down and plants a kiss right on her lips.
There's no doubt about the fact that the people in the snaps are Rob and K-Stew, with this final shred of evidence proving that they are definitely back together.

This isn't the first time the pair have enjoyed a romantic day out this week - they were snapped together at Ye Olde Rustic Inn in Los Feliz on Sunday.
Kristen and Rob clearly don't care about what Donald Trump has to say then. The billionaire tweeted yesterday: ' ' Robert Pattinson should not take back Kristen Stewart. She cheated on him like a dog & will do it again-just watch. He can do much better!'
Meanwhile, it looks lik e Liberty Ross has forgiven Rupert Sanders - they were seen having a cuddle after a meeting in Beverly Hills on Wednesday.
Are just supposed to forget this whole thing ever happened?!
Sigh. We guess so. Here's their love story - which seems to be going on and on in pictures...

Doting dad Hugh Jackman grabs lunch with his family in his French bulldog Dali gets two police escorts

Last night, he hosted the world's largest short film festival in New York's Bryant Park.
But today, X-Men star Hugh Jackman was back to being an ordinary family man as he grabbed lunch this afternoon from Citarella market, that is, if you call having armed police escorts watch your dog while you shop 'ordinary.'
The 43-year-old hunk gave his bulging biceps a workout as he held several takeout bags, and his beaming six-year-old daughter Eva up by her tiny arms.

Eva, clearly a daddy's girl, snuggled Hugh's arm as they were out on their sunny stroll in her coral T-shirt with matching Converse sneakers and lavender capri pants.
Hugh sadly kept his pecs covered up in a grey Harley Davidson t-shirt and stayed cool in the 80-degree Manhattan weather by wearing long black shorts.
His 56-year-old wife Deborra-Lee Furness, who recently presented her handsome husband of 16 years with a special Tony Award, wore a casual all-black ensemble to the market, but their other adopted child, 12-year-old Oscar, was nowhere to be seen.

However the couple's two-year-old dog child Dali, a French bulldog full of personality, seemed to get a kick out of the two NYPD officers watching over him.
Deborra told People Magazine last year that they named the pup after Oscar's favourite artist 'because of the way [the dog's] mouth curls, he looks like Salvador DalĂ­ with a moustache,' adding that 'he's got a face only a mother could love.'
Meanwhile Jackman has said that his children react differently to his massive, world-wide fame.

Arnold Schwarzenegger Says His Next Film Is THE UNKNOWN SOLDIER (Formerly Titled BLACK SANDS)


It appears that Arnold Schwarzenegger is going non-stop to revive his film career after taking a brief hiatus to play governor of California. He’ll be seen later this year in The Expendables 2, he shot The Last Stand last fall for a January 18, 2013 release, he’s re-teamed with Sylvester Stallone for the prison break flick The Tomb, and now the action star says his next film will be The Unknown Soldier. Act of Valor directors Mike McCoy and Scott Waugh are set to helm the feature, which was previously titled “Black Sands” (in December we reported that the movie had been re-titled to “Black Sunday“, but Schwarzenegger fansite The Arnold Fans tells us that the title has always been Black Sands until now). According to Schwarzenegger, filming on The Unknown Soldier is set to begin in June.
Hit the jump for more.
arnold-schwarzenegger-image-1-the-unknown-soldierIn addition to revealing that the prison in The Tomb is on a ship in the middle of the ocean, here’s what Schwarzenegger told The Arnold Fans about The Unknown Soldier:
“Then we’re going to do The Unknown Soldier which is going to be with the Bandito Brothers that did Act of Valor, the number one movie right now and is getting such notoriety because they shot if for 4 million dollars and it looks like 100 million dollar movie because they got military and shot real action stuff which makes the movie so big and very successful, great story and everything. Those directors are doing Unknown Soldier, we start shooting sometime in June. Hopefully by that time my shoulder will be OK so I can do the stunts, but I’m looking forward to all that.”
The title presumably refers to The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier at Arlington Cemetery. The tomb represents all the unidentifiable remains of soldiers lost in combat. All we know about Black Sands is that Schwarzenegger said his character was “a kind of angel,” and that he couldn’t say anything more than that. The Arnold Fans added that the movie was a cross between Constantine and Commando.
Schwarzenegger didn’t confirm that Black Sands‘ title had been changed to The Unknown Soldier, so it’s possible that Waugh and McCoy have signed on to direct another and entirely separate movie for the action star, but that seems unlikely.

The British royals are getting geared up for the Olympics without even breaking a sweat! As his adoring wife looks on, Prince William passes on a few words to kids on the soccer field during a stop by London's Bacon School Thursday to launch Coach Core, a fitness initiative to provide training to young athletes looking to become future coaches.

AND SHE SCORES! photo | Kate Middleton



William isn't the only one handy with a ball: The Duchess of Cambridge shows off her ping-pong skills – and her look of triumph as she gets one by an opponent.

C'mon, best two out of three! He's more a volleyball man, but Harry tries his hand at hoops because he's an all-court kind of guy.

Breaking Down Psy's 'Gangnam Style': : Korean pop star explains each shot of absurdist video smash

For 48 straight hours in early July, Korean pop star Psy and his crew drove Seoul's crowded highways in search of absurdist settings for his sexy horse dance. Obviously, they succeeded – "Gangnam Style" is not only spontaneously, ridiculously funny, it has snagged more than 167 million YouTube views since its release in mid-July and is climbing up the iTunes charts. "This is history in my country," Psy says, from a promotional tour in New York City, during an enthusiastic 45-minute phone interview that had been strictly scheduled for 15 minutes. Following is the singer's scene-by-scene breakdown.
THE SCENE: Lounging on a beach that's actually a playground
THE TIME: 0:16
PSY SAYS: "It was my idea. There was some playground in Korea. My thought was, the song releases on July 15th, and in Korea it's really hot in summer. You know there's a program called America's Got Talent? We had a version of the program, which is called Korea's Got Talent, and the boy [a miniature dancing version of Psy in the scene] came from there. He was not trained. He was just born like that. Isn't he amazing?"
THE SCENE: Horse stable
THE TIME: 0:18
PSY SAYS: "When we made this choreography, we called it 'horse dance.' I told [the director], 'Hey, this is horse dance, so let's find some horse place.' In that way, it can be more cheesy. It can be more ridiculous. So we did that. It was somewhere in Seoul."
THE SCENE: Debris and snow whooshing into Psy's face
THE TIME: 0:33
PSY SAYS: "Did you feel that I moved like Michael Jackson in that scene? [Laughs] I tried some things serious, to be ridiculous, you know. The snow and trash and everything . . . I asked them, 'Hey, throw it harder, throw it harder, so that way it's going to look really hilarious!' So they used a propeller. We edited a lot, and actually we tried a lot more than this."
THE SCENE: Dozing off in the sauna
THE TIME: 0:48
PSY SAYS: "It was a real sauna, so it was hot, and I was so exhausted, and all of a sudden I feel like getting sleepy on his shoulder. That was 100 percent ad-libbed. At this sauna, every staff, even me, was out of their consciousness. We were like, 'Hey, what are we doing right now? Why are we at the sauna?' The fat guy? Yeah, he was an actor."
THE SCENE: On the tour bus with the disco balls
THE TIME: 1:04
PSY SAYS: "It's like a tour bus, and a lot of older guys and older ladies are traveling to somewhere on the highways. Honestly, that's illegal, I think: They are standing when they are riding. When we were moving to this location, to that location, I suddenly found some bus on the highway, and I talked to the director: 'Hey, let's do that, the illegal thing, the older guys' party time.' The situation was ad-libbed on the highway. There's some lighting going on and mirror balls – that's not suitable for transportation, right? I cannot play that scene in the Korean National Broadcasting System. That's funny!"
THE SCENE: Explosion behind Psy's head
THE TIME: 1:08
PSY SAYS: "I've used very highly big-budget special effects in my own concerts for 12 years in Korea. So that was just a tiny piece of my concerts. That kind of explosion is kind of like a trademark of me in Korea."
THE SCENE: Dancing forward while the ladies march backwards
THE TIME: 1:15
PSY SAYS: "I try to show I'm dancing this horse-riding dance everywhere, and with everybody. The two women – they are walking back, right? In Korea, some aged women walk back to lose their weight, you know? That's a very normal situation in Korea. Younger people feel like, 'Hey, why are they walking back?' and aged women say, 'Hey, that's the kind of thing in Korea for 20 years.'"
THE SCENE: Dance-off with the Man in Yellow in the parking garage
THE TIME: 1:42
PSY SAYS: "The yellow-suit guy – he's a Number One comedian in Korea. His name is Yoo Jae Suk. In the music video, he danced very serious, right? Overseas, they are watching, just 'Oh, some unique yellow-suit guy's dancing, who is he?' But in Korea, everyone's going crazy: 'Wow, he's dancing so serious. He's a really busy man in Korea so we didn't have that much time with him. He's my very good friend. He just volunteered to do that for free so I cannot say, 'Hey, let's do that one more time.' We did it like three times, that was all. That was also ad-libbed – his moves, my moves, everything. We just played the whole song and we just danced what we know in our lives. There were some dirty moves and there were some horrible moves we couldn't use in the video. We have a lot of cut scenes. At the spot, everyone was crying – dying!"
THE SCENE: Elevator dance
THE TIME: 1:55
PSY SAYS: "He's also a very famous comedian in Korea. His name is Noh Hong-cheol. He's really a good friend of mine. He just came to my music-video spot to cheer me up. That was all. He didn't expect any filming. He didn't make [anything] up. The move – that was his trademark. He'd done that kind of move for several years. When he stepped in the elevator, I asked him, 'Hey, why don't you do that move in the elevator?' And he said, 'What are you going to do?' I said, 'I'm going to be between your legs, how about that?' He said, 'What?' And we were laughing. 'Let's see what's up.' All the staff was, 'What the fuck? . . . Oh, that's disgusting, that's nasty!' We didn't do that on purpose at all – as a result, I love the scene most."
THE SCENE: Dancing with the beautiful redhead in various locations
THE TIME: 2:11
PSY SAYS: "She is the leader of a very famous K-Pop girl group. The group name is 4Minute; her name is Hyun-a. She's kind of a sexy symbol among girl groups. She didn't do that kind of thing at all before. She asked, 'Why? Why? Why did I . . . ?' She was like, 'Oh, what is this? He keeps asking me to do some dumb shit. I don't have any clue. What are you talking about?' At some point she realized what's going on and she says, 'Oh, Psy, you idiot! This is genius, this is awesome!' That's what she told me in the middle of the video. And then she did it right."
THE SCENE: Splashing in a small pool with swim goggles
THE TIME: 2:38
PSY SAYS: "That was the same place with the sauna! The guy was one of my staff. After doing the sauna scenes, we are like, 'All right, it's done!' And we cheered. Honestly, that scene I copied Lady Gaga, you know? 'I want a volunteer from my staff. Take off the upper shirt. Who's it going to be?' He sat down there and I tried this move, that move.
THE SCENE: On the toilet
THE TIME: 3:16
PSY SAYS: "That was right outside of the sauna. [Laughs] That was the last spot, and we didn't expect anything. We were totally exhausted. Every staff, including me, we were thinking, 'Why don't we just finish here?' We went inside and found three scenes in there – sauna, water and toilet."
