"I hate hearing myself speak," the singer, who voiced the animated character of Queen Tara in Epic, told Australia's The Project. "I think everyone does. I hear my little crazy voice coming out of this beautiful, regal woman—I'm like, 'This is really strange, but I love it.'" "Just seeing yourself animated and seeing yourself doing something you could never do in real life—I've always thought, for whatever reason, that would be supercool," Jay-z's love explained.

The Project is a movie about pirates without Johnny Depp. It's also a movie about life-or-death military operations, but there are no duty-bound, Stars and Stripes-waving patriots to be found. Instead, this documentary, premiering at the Tribeca Film Festival, is a stark and shocking look at the outlaw police force that seems a world away, but has a vast impact on the way we live in America. Directed by the Emmy and Peabody-winning team of Adam Ciralsky and Shawn Efran, focuses on the Puntland Maritime Police Force, a paramilitary group that is working to stop

Johnny Rotten was acting pretty, well, rotten. The former lead singer of the Sex Pistols (real name John Lydon) got into hot water after telling a female host on the Australian talk show The Project on Channel Ten to "shut up when a man is talking" when she cut in with a question about the death of Margaret Thatcher. Oh yeah, he went there. "Hey, hey missus, shut up, whoever you are, shut up, shut up, shut up," Rotten told anchor Carrie Bickmore. "Now listen, when a man is talking do not interrupt." Bickmore tried her best to play it off and continue with the interview, but the rocker didn't let it slide, telling her, »
Former Sex Pistol Johnny Rotten has come under fire after launching a bizarre sexist rant on Australian TV when the show's female anchor, Carrie Bickmore, asked him about the death of Baroness Thatcher.
The disgusting tirade started with Rotten saying "missus, shutup", he then told her, "when a man is talking do not interrupt."
He continued, with his seemingly over-inflated ego, thus: "You're beginning to sound like excited children, you're talking to a proper master of the universe here."
Rotten is currently touring the country with his band Public Image Limited.
However, he has hit back at claims he's sexist.“It’s quite clear to me I’m not a sexist and I’m not a misogynist.”
He said that if someone interrupts, »

Wearing embroidered red and gold ankle boots and gray jeans, the stylish actress stopped by an Atm then hailed a cab in SoHo. Although Sienna was solo yesterday, she carried baby Marlowe Sturridge in a puffy onesie with her on Sunday when she stepped out with her other half, Tom Sturridge. The couple are counting down the days until Tom's play, Orphans, opens on March 26. Tom will star opposite Alec Baldwin and Ben Foster, who stepped in for Shia Labeouf after his feud with Alec reportedly led him to leave the show.

Will Tom Cruise say U.N.C.L.E.? According to Deadline.com reporter Mike Fleming, Cruise is in preliminary talks to star in "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." for Warner Bros. and director Guy Ritchie. The film is based on the cult series of the same name that ran on television from 1964 through 1968; Robert Vaughn starred on "The Man From U.N.C.L.E." as Napoleon Solo, the spy role that Cruise would play if his deal is worked out.
Cruise is just the latest A-list star attached to "The Man From U.N.C.L.E."
