Big "Grease" Fan? Scared of crazy hurricanes destroying your house? Super rich? If you answered yes to all those questions then get happy ...

Did Candice pull off a win? And did Adam Lambert pull off his mascara? (Yes.)
“Candice, why you gotta make this all about you?”
Look. You can pretend the Idol finale is some grandiose, tasteless, freakish spectacle. You can even think that logically. Because it’s true and undeniable and shut up about it. But you can’t deny that the Idol finale reminds you — for a few shimmery moments — that these competitors are viable mainstream singers whether or not they actually end up being successful. They can work alongside real industry vets and not look miscast in their shadows. I dig that — especially when some of the veterans (Mariah Carey and guest performer Jennifer Lopez, in this case) look less than professional as they lip-sync their hits (and non-hits, in the case of poor Jennifer) to the horrified awe of millions. Come on, Mariah! You nail “My All” and »

Given that cancer runs in her family, Angelina Jolie wasn't taking any chances with her health when she decided to have a preventive double mastectomy. And by coming forward and sharing her story, the Oscar-winning actress hoped to inspire millions of women to be proactive about safeguarding their own health. In the wake of Jolie's announcement, here's a look at other celebrities who have courageously opened up about their struggles with breast cancer: Olivia Newton-John: In 1992, the Grease star was diagnosed with breast cancer, prompting her to undergo a mastectomy. Twenty years later, Newton-John has since recovered and is now a strong advocate on behalf of breast cancer survivors and is »
As anyone with even a passing familiarity with Glee — or iTunes charts — is aware, the show knows its way around a tribute episode, a.k.a. an episode where all of the music is from one artist or film. A ‘tribute episode’ also typically means there are seven or eight songs in the hour-long dramedy, as opposed to the usual standard of four. Great news for those of us who are watching the show for the karaoke! (I can’t be the only one dancing around my living room to Madonna or Lady Gaga Glee covers, right?)

Aaron Eckhart is besotted with Olivia Newton-John. The 'Olympus Has Fallen' actor has been harbouring a crush on the 64-year-old Australian star since seeing her play innocent Sandy Olsson in hit 80s flick 'Grease!' - particularly for when she dons a skin-tight leather cat suit to impress John Travolta's character Danny Zuko at the end of the film. Asked who his first celebrity crush was, Aaron replied: 'Olivia Newton-John. I saw 'Grease' many times. In fact, I still have a crush on her. 'I fell in love with the angel in the first half of the movie and then, [in a London cockney accent] 'There's nuffink better than a girl in leather'. 'I've never met her, but I've often tried »
Issue #7 of Lunchmeat is now on sale via The Meat Market, and rather than do a typical review, we thought we'd post this post-mortem and include a look at a few pages from it. Check it out!
Hey, all you tape-heads out there riding the digital waves—Lunchmeat 7 has hit the savage streets featuring more “Blood! Terror! Babes! Monsters!” With its glossy slick and sick four-color cover and rock 'n roll junk zine interior, editor-in-chief Josh Schafer has concocted another delightful collection of analog things from genres past, forever exploring the landscape of the ravenous revival of VHS.
This issue is filled with reviews of flicks not available yet on DVD or Blu-ray, highlights of which include Tombstone Territory, The Shout, Madhouse Mansion, and Project Nightmare, none of which I remember ever renting in my VHS youth at Video Video or Video Magic in Old Bridge, NJ. But that’s »

The residents and tourists of Las Vegas will have to wait a little while longer for Australian songstress Olivia Newton-John. The singer has revealed in a statement that her sister Rona, pictured above, left, with Olivia in 2001, has been diagnosed with brain cancer.
The statement reads:
I received the very sad news that my beautiful sister, Rona Newton-John, has been diagnosed with brain cancer. In light of this news, I have decided to postpone my forthcoming Las Vegas residency to spend time with her and our family. As a cancer 'thriver' myself, as many people are, I am very aware of the importance of love, support and family during this journey she is about to begin. I want to thank everyone in advance for respecting our privacy during this difficult time.

"Entertainment Tonight" reported Monday that Newton-John's older sister, Rona, has been diagnosed with brain cancer.

"I want to thank everyone in advance for respecting our privacy during this difficult time."

Earlier this month it was reported that the Grease star would begin a residency in Las Vegas, performing at the Flamingo hotel. Now in the light of her sister's health news, Olivia will be postponing those engagements to be with her family.
"As a cancer 'thriver' myself, as many people are, I am very aware of the importance of love, support and family during this journey she is about to begin," says Olivia, 64, who was diagnosed with breast cancer close to 20 years ago. "I want to thank everyone in advance for respecting our privacy during this difficult time."
Olivia has been free of the disease since undergoing treatment and a mastectomy. »
Today, the Magic Kingdom — and the nostalgic boomers who yearned to make her either their girlfriend or their best friend — are mourning the death of Annette Funicello, the teen idol whose sunny, perky screen presence defined the ’50s and ’60s. The boys in Stand By Me lusted after her; Grease’s Rizzo mocked her (“would you pull that crap with Annette?”); Paul Anka, whom she dated, wrote “Puppy Love” for her in 1960, thus setting the boyfriend bar impossibly high.
Funicello succumbed to complications of multiple sclerosis, a debilitating disease from which she’d suffered since 1987. Her Ms effectively removed her »

John Travolta's attorney is lashing out at Gawker over a report suggesting that the "Grease" star shelled out more than $84,000 to settle sexual assault claims, calling the story "outrageous" and "false." Gawker published the story Tuesday, along with a document that the site claimed is an "internal report" of insurance claims indicating that the actor's insurer paid out a total of $84,500 to two parties after they issued attorney demand letters alleging sexual assault.

The release of Spring Breakers leaves James pondering the loss of childhood innocence in the movies...
I love the smell of corrupted innocence in the morning. It smells like victory, and that's a victory that's shared by all parties. The corrupted ex-innocents are happy (they're finally free to embrace their dark side), the corrupting influences are happy (they've achieved their objective) and the audience is happy.
You may protest, but I put it to you that your pious position is all pretence and that you're in a denial. In spite of enthusiastic public support for 'the good' and for purity, really, everyone is rooting for the dark side to do well.
People are perverse and genuinely prefer it when the nasty, the sinister or the unpalatable powers through and pollutes proceedings. Look deep inside yourself and you'll realise that you do want to trek into darkness, »
The international trailer for The Wolverine was released this week. From a costume point of view the most interesting thing in it was Hugh Jackman wearing an awful lot of black. In the context of the story his character travels to Japan and falls in with a Yakuza clan. Black suits, shirts and ties are the unofficial uniform of the Yakuza, a look largely adopted from Hollywood gangster movies. The use of black in costume design denotes mystery, death and for want of a better word, ‘coolness’; it is as obviously symbolic as sexy red or cold blue.
To honour The Wolverine and his tendency to layer black on black (and black on black) we have compiled a list of the most interesting posts centred around this colour at Clothes on Film. As usual click the image to take you to the article.

As per the Internet Movie Database, Reems had already appeared in several small stag films prior to Deep Throat. He had also been featured in a tiny role in the Jane Fonda / Donald Sutherland crime thriller Klute, released in 1971 and coincidentally directed by All the President's Men's Alan J. Pakula. He later claimed that he almost landed the part of the coach in John Travolta / Olivia Newton-John's 1978 musical Grease, but the film's powers-that-be eventually reached the conclusion that his association with porn would have been detrimental to the Paramount release. (Pictured above: Adam Brody plays Reems in Lovelace, with Amanda Seyfried as Linda Lovelace seen on her knees.) Harry Reems kept on working in the X-rated movie industry throughout the '80s. Also according to the Internet Movie Database, his last movie credit was Steve Scott's Too Good to Be True, with Ginger Lynn and Peter North, »

The Hollywood star appears as a ruthless Wall Street trader in Arbitrage, but he doesn't play him as a villain – that would be too easy
You were gorgeous then, I tell Richard Gere. He looks crossly over his glasses. "Were?" he says. Were – and are. "Thank you," he says, mollified. Two minutes into the interview and we're already unexpectedly into homoerotic territory. He looks back at a 40-year-old photograph of himself on my phone.
In the photo, it's June 1973 and Richard Gere is Danny Zuko, hair-slicked hottie bad boy of Grease, the role he played for six months at the New London Theatre, Drury Lane. It's decades before Gere started working that distinguished grey mane that serves him so well nowadays. It's a lifetime ago before that urban myth involving a gerbil and an emergency room. Long before he became the highest paid lover in Beverly Hills (in American Gigolo »

He could have had it all, yet he never quite lost it all either. The mysterious and rather annoying case of Richard Gere
I've been rolling my eyes at Richard Gere for 30 years, alternately alienated and charmed by his good looks and his shockingly evident narcissism and self-regard; his abidingly terrible taste in projects, and the fact that somehow, no matter how many movies like Intersection he makes (or like King David, or Mr Jones) sooner or later there will come an end to his lengthy career-drought and, like a flailing magician, he will somehow revive his good name and box office rep with a blockbuster comeback like Pretty Woman, or an intelligent movie like Internal Affairs. Or, Nicholas Jarecki's very watchable new thriller Arbitrage.
As Robert Miller, a 60-year-old investment-fund billionaire, Gere has it all: a full head of silver hair, a good name on Wall Street and »
