The Butler is happening, and it is… serious.
The movie is based on the life of Eugene Allen, a White House butler who served eight different presidents.

And in an online outburst, the on-off Take That star also ranted about a string of 90s guitar bands as he defended the contribution of pop acts such as One Direction.
Rock and roll war... just like the 1990s all over again!
Williams was responding to comments Anderson was said to have given in an interview about "c**p boy bands" which he claimed had been assembled "by committee".
Writing on his blog, Williams said more fans' hearts would be racing at the prospect of a One Direction album than a Suede release.

There’s a certain irony that Suede’s comeback album, their first in ten and a half years since 2002′s lacklustre effort A New Morning, should arrive one week after David Bowie’s The Next Day.

Suede have revealed the tracklisting for their comeback album Bloodsports. The record will be released on March 18, marking the band's first studio album in over ten years. Suede also confirmed that 'It Starts and Ends with You' will be released as a single on the same day, following the release of 'Barriers' as a free download last week. Lead singer Brett Anderson said: "After a year of sweating and bleeding over the record it's finally finished so we wanted to get some music out there as soon as we could. "'Barriers' isn't the first single but we are proud of it enough just to chuck it out there and thought that it's pulsing, romantic swell somehow summed up the feel of the album quite nicely . "The album is called Bloodsports. (more) »

Anger Management: Season One
Opening with a to-camera monologue that is seemingly inspired by, and ripped directly from, his life, Anger Management features Charlie Sheen as therapist Charlie Goodson, an ex-baseball player who specialises in anger management therapy whilst battling his own anger issues. He has a successful private practice, holding sessions with his group of primary patient regulars each week, as well as performing volunteer counselling for an inmate group at a state prison. His life is further complicated by his relationships with his own therapist/best friend with benefits (Blair), his ex-wife (Smith), and their 13-year-old daughter (Bobadilla).
Suede have premiered a new track from their upcoming sixth studio album. The band are offering fans new cut 'Barriers' as a free download on their official website, lifted from their comeback album Bloodsports. The record is Suede's first since 2002's A New Morning and is currently expected to be released in March. An official lead single titled 'It Starts And Ends With You' will precede the album in February. "After a year of sweating and bleeding over the record it's finally finished so we wanted to get some music out there as soon as we could," Suede's Brett Anderson told NME. & (more) »
