Miranda Kerr is taking a page out of Gisele Bündchen's book and trying her hand at singing! The 31-year-old model is featured with Irish singer Bobby Fox on his Elvis Presley cover, "You're the Boss." This isn't exactly the brunette beauty's first time at the rodeo either… She caught the attention of music executives after she sang during a Japanese ice tea commercial back in 2012. "They approached me and I said, 'I'm not a singer,'" Kerr told The Daily Telegraph. "But they said, 'We know, but you sang on that commercial.'" She added, "'I said, 'If I don't like it, it's definitely »
We were obviously very excited about MTV's brand new series Ex On The Beach. Following in the footsteps of edifying shows like The Valleys and Geordie Shore - hell, this even stars Vicky Pattison - the programme sticks eight 'sexy singles' on a beach, convinces them it's a dating show, and then bungs in all their exes. Hooray! Admittedly, this might not be as much of a 'social experiment' as those first series of Big Brother, but that doesn't mean we didn't learn anything. Read on for our life lessons from Ex On The Beach...
1. Any programme that begins with a disclaimer is bound to be great.
"This programme contains strong language and sexual references throughout." Result.
2. The eight 'sexy singles' are all very 'reality star'.
Marco says: "If I bagged me, I'd get clingy" and we learnt that he "hates a toothy blow job".

However, the 31-year-old supermodel said that if she did not like it, it was definitely not going anywhere and they agreed.

It comes around quick, doesn’t it? Seems like only yesterday that Microsoft were announcing the terribly exciting Killer Instinct and now we’re already bored of it. They also announced they’d move both Heaven and Earth to stop you playing used games, you filthy cheapskate. And look how that turned out. Sony’s Jack Tretton joyfully trolled them for it at the time, though, much to the delight of a whooping, Jerry Springer crowd. And then Nintendo probably revealed some stuff, too, but who really cares about that?
So here’s why this year’s E3 will be the best one ever: Tretton recently stepped down as Sony president, Microsoft revoked all its DRM policies, and Nintendo need to prove the the Wii U is still relevant. In short, the dust has settled and all three are now more or less on the same next-gen playing field. So, »

What if Elvis Presley’s identical twin brother hadn’t been delivered stillborn? What if he had been surreptitiously adopted and raised to adulthood by other parents, without the King ever knowing, and wound up achieving fame and fortune as — get ready for it — a really terrific Elvis Presley imitator? Such speculation provides the narrative foundation for “The Identical,” an indie-produced film a clef that unfortunately falls short of fully realizing its provocative high concept. Plot elements involving religious influences might help Freestyle market the pic as faith-based entertainment during its scheduled Sept. 12 theatrical rollout, but don’t be surprised if diehard Elvis fans prove to be its harshest critics.
Not surprisingly, names have been changed — and pop-culture history has been reimagined — by scripter Howard Klausner (who also wrote the speculative Hank Williams drama “The Last Ride”) and first-time feature helmer Dustin Marcellino. In this variation of the story behind the story, »

Nashville, Tenn. (AP) — Jack White played his new single "Lazaretto" for a couple of hundred fans on Record Store Day and four hours later a copy of the performance was available on a limited run of vinyl. The singer and guitarist called it the "world's fastest-released record." But don't look for it in the Guinness World Record Book, as White admitted he doesn't know if anyone else has attempted the feat. The stunt was a promotion for Record Store Day and his upcoming album, "Lazaretto." White performed Saturday morning at his Third Man Records label. As he was playing, fans could watch on television the acetate record being cut in a room behind the stage. After the title song from the upcoming album, he also recorded a cover of Elvis Presley's "Power of My Love," which was the B-side on the record. The master was then hustled over to the United Record Pressing plant, »

If your knowledge of pop music is of a certain type, then you’ve heard of glam-rocker Alice Cooper but know almost nothing about him. In fact, the Tribeca 2014 documentary Super Duper Alice Cooper reveals the factoid that Vincent Furnier was originally the singer of a band called Alice Cooper, and that he changed his name to Alice Cooper to make the band (and, later, his solo act) easier to promote. That action says a lot about Cooper – his act, his ambitions, the sort of place that he has in music history – but Super Duper Alice Cooper isn’t quite interested in that. It’s not unlike one of Cooper’s many imitators, presenting the traditional information with flashy visuals.
The material is certainly nothing new: open on Vincent Furnier’s childhood and follow his life »

This story first appeared in the May 2 issue of The Hollywood Reporter magazine. Hollywood's glitziest contribution to the 1964 New York World's Fair was staging the black-tie premiere of What a Way to Go! on its 646-acre grounds. It was quite the production: Stars and guests passed through turnstiles at the Times Square subway station, then were serenaded by a guitarist/bassist/bongo drummer trio as they boarded a specially outfitted Irt 7 Flushing Express to Queens.

Los Angeles—I have a confession to make. Until Saturday night, I had never seen The Beatles’ “A Hard Day’s Night.” What? I know! I felt like this was a major black hole in my cultural education, especially as someone who makes her living writing about music. Like most folks, I was very familiar with the movie's glorious first scene of the lads being chased through the streets by fervent female fans as “A Hard Day’s Night” plays (opened by that instantly recognizable, iconic guitar chord), but I had never seen the entire 1964 film until this past weekend. As part of the TCM Classic Film Festival, Alec Baldwin and music producer Don Was introduced the film that some considered the greatest rock and roll movie ever made. Upon its release, the Village Voice called “A Hard Day’s Night” “the Citizen Kane of jukebox musicals.” There’s a »
Don Draper has flown to California and lies on a couch with his wife, Megan, sprawled next to him. Eyes dazed, he looks toward the television as Frank Capra’s 1937 film Lost Horizon begins. The on-screen script reads, “In these days of wars and rumors of wars – haven’t you ever dreamt of a place where there was peace and security, where living was not a struggle but a lasting delight?” Don becomes alert, more so when the page on the television flips to new text. “Of course you have,” it states. “So has every man since Time began.”
To quote a popular rock song of the period, time is not on Don Draper’s side. His descent into oblivion from Mad Men‘s opening credit sequence feels more like a final destination. At his job with Sterling Cooper, Don was at the centre of the clock, the boss waiting »

Loners and outcasts have no greater cinematic patron saint than Jim Jarmusch, the fiercely independent writer-director who's spent over three decades chronicling urban fringe-dwellers, road trippers, rockabilly tourists, Zen hitmen and, now, vampires. The 60-year-old filmmaker's latest, Only Lovers Left Alive, centers on a centuries-old couple (played by Tilda Swinton and Tom Hiddleston) who like their Type O served neat, though its a far cry from the recent wave of vampire chic; it's really a languorous romance in which two lovers struggle with immortality-engendered ennui. It may be Jarmusch's first foray into horror films, »
Sorry, ladies! Alex Pettyfer is off the market - again. The beautiful blonde who's snagged his heart this time is model Marloes Horst, People confirms.
