Avril fights back.

Avril Lavigne isn't going to take a bashing sitting down. She has responded to claims that she ripped off "Girlfriend" from the Rubinoos on her website. I like Avril. Good for her.... I'm also scared of her. I'm pretty sure she could thrash me....
dear media, friends, and fans,
You may have heard some news that two guys who wrote for some band from the 1970s I have never in my life heard of called the "Rubinoos" are trying to sue me. They have a song called "I Want To Be Your Boyfriend" that has no musical similarities to the song "Girlfriend" that Luke Gottwald and I wrote together. They claim that a small part of the lyrics are the same and are saying that I took these from them. I had never heard this song in my life and their claim is based on 5 words! All songs share similar lyrics and emotions. As humans we speak one language.
Off the top of my head, two other songs that I can immediately think of with this type of lyric are "Hey, hey, you, you get off of my cloud" by the Rolling Stones and "Hey little girl I want to be your boyfriend" by the Ramones. Simply put, I have been falsely accused of ripping their song off. Luke and I have done nothing wrong and there is no merit to their claim.
And slap in the face #2
I was going to be the bigger person and not reply when I read Chantal Kreviazuk's article in Performing Songwriter magazine. Now that all the media have caught on to her little interview, I need to speak. Chantal's comments are damaging to my reputation and a clear defamation of my character and I am considering taking legal action. Chantal has accused me of taking a song idea from her because I happen to have a song on my new record with the same title.
For the record, I wrote a song with Evan Taubenfeld which coincidentally has the same title as a song Chantal had sent me a few years ago. Our songs have no similarities and opposite meanings, i.e. different lyrics, different melody, different genres. In Chantal's own words "the only similarity is in the title." I originally wrote this with Evan for his record and I ended up with it. Funny enough when I decided to put "Contagious" on my album we had to change the words from "she" to "he" in order for it to work on my record. There are hundreds of songs out there with the title "Contagious," 75+ on iTunes alone.
Chantal has also made false accusations about my writing skills. I am so over this topic. This letter is not about this. I am not going to sit here and defend my writing skills. I don't have to prove anything to anyone. I know who I am and what I have done and accomplished and no one can take that away from me.
My decision to discontinue working with Chantal after co-writing together on my second record was simply based on the fact that we had no hits together. That is why her name is not on this record, despite her numerous attempts to be included, which were always denied. From my perspective this is a clear case of bitterness. Chantal is upset that she didn't get to be a part of my record. She did email me after the article came out apologizing and I forgive her but I have to put the truth out there so my fans are not confused by these false accusations.
Let it be crystal clear that I have not ripped anyone off or done anything wrong. I have never had to deal with anything publicly like this and surely never wanted to. I do not deserve this negative press and attention. I take pride in the songs that I write and appreciate the opportunities to work with some great writers and musicians.
My fans have been so dedicated to my music and it is because of them that I have this amazing career. Thank you again to my fans for continuing to be so supportive. This is a very positive time for me in my life. I have a very successful career and I feel very lucky to have accomplished all that I have. I am so thankful every day.
I would like to say more but my lawyers have advised me not to. Why is it when you get to a certain level people want to attack you?.... and now I have said my piece.

Ron Wood borrowed 250,000 pounds from Mick & Keith in 2004.

Sometimes it doesn't matter how famous or rich you get. You have to get by with a little help from your friends. Ron Wood of the Rolling Stones blew his fortune on failed investments. He had to turn to his band mates to get him out of a financial hole.
Sun:"Ron" lost around £8million in the exclusive Harrington Club in South Kensington, West London.
He founded the venue in 2000 but it proved a financial disaster and went bust in just three years.
Ronnie had to remortgage houses and blew his entire investment.
He agreed the loan with Mick and Keef in 2004. A source said: “The 2005 Bigger Bang Tour came just in time for him.
“He’d had to borrow a serious chunk of cash from Mick and Keith to see him through.” Ronnie is now back on his feet — selling his own artwork, building a horse racing stable and pocketing more tour cash.
But he once confessed of his Harrington disaster: “I’d never have recovered if I hadn’t got out.”

Fergie to sing about Candie's clothing?

Fergie has signed a $4 million deal with Candie's clothing line. However, Fergie has denied reports that she will sing about the clothing line on her next CD. I would just like to publicly tell Candie's that if they would like to sponsor Geno's World for $4 million, I'll talk about Candie's in every post. I admit it. I'm a product placement whore. I hang my head in shame.......
StarPulse: A spokesperson for the star says, "There is absolutely no truth in the media reports that Fergie has agreed to product placement in her songs. She does have a commercial deal with the clothing brand Candie's, but it has nothing whatsoever to do with the creation of her music."
A representative for Candie's adds, "Contrary to recent false reports in the media, the Company does not have any arrangement with Fergie whereby she will incorporate the Candie's brand into her lyrics."

Hayden loves Journey and bikinis.

"Heroes" cutie Hayden Panettiere's stock just went up even more in my book. She reveals to People that she loves Journey and bikinis. God love her.
I love listening to Journey. They've got some awesome songs like "Don't Stop Believing" ... It's just a feel good song. It's like you're at a party, and they play that song and everyone just goes nuts...........

I'm a bikini girl. Can't have those tan lines! I love wearing bathing suits. They're comfortable. You always feel like you have to look good in clothes. I feel so much more comfortable with a bathing suit on because nothing's constricting in bad areas.

Will Leo play Hef?

There's always been talk about a Hugh Hefner movie. The word on the street is that Leo DiCaprio is the man for the role. The other word on the street is that I am up for a role as busboy #42 in the project. Keep your fingers crossed....
A source said: "Leo and Hugh have been friends for a long time and Leo has always been interested in Hugh's life story. Leo thinks it would make a great movie and Hugh would love Leo to do it - on condition Hugh is alive to see it."

ER doc Goran Visnijic is faced with a paternity suit.

The celebrity world went officially 2.5 days without a paternity suit. Now comes word that Goran Visnijic, star of "ER" is faced with one. A Croatian woman named Mirela Rupic says that Goran has refused to recognize her 4 month old daughter as his. This is just sad..... I hope there's no truth to this.
Mirela Rupic, 36, filed the lawsuit after Visnjic refused to recognize the child as his, Rupic's lawyer, Nenad Skare, told The Associated Press on Friday.
Visnjic, who plays Dr. Luka Kovac on the long-running NBC series, has been married to Ivana Vrdoljak since 1999 and lives in Los Angeles. The couple told Croatian media last spring they have adopted a boy, born in April, in the United States.
Skare said that Rupic initially wanted to settle the matter directly with Visnjic, but her attempts failed. If Visnjic formally denies paternity, they would request a paternity test, Skare said.
Rupic told Friday's Jutarnji List that Visnjic ''knew about my pregnancy from the start.'' The newspaper quoted her as saying she decided to sue him after he told her recently he would financially support the child, but never recognize her as his own

Nathan Fillion talks about Drive, Firefly, Waitress and Lost.

if magazine has a great interview with busy actor Nathan Fillion. Fillion touches on quite a number of topics. (An unknown fact is that I get stopped on the streets constantly being mistaken for Nathan. We look exactly alike.....)

On Drive: Alex Tully is guy much like me – I can handle problems if I can put my hands on them. I’m not a handyman, by any means, but I’ll take it apart and I’ll clean it and I’ll try to fix it, I’ll say, ‘That looks broke and I can try to fix that up.’ I’ve taught myself how to weld. If I can put my hands on it, I can [deal with it] and I think Alex Tully is much the same kind of person. So now he’s thrust into this race with no apparent finish line, his wife his missing – these problems are ethereal, that he cannot put his hands on. And he’s unsettled and he’s frustrated and it’s making him angry.

On Waitress: I feel awesome. I’m very excited about WAITRESS

On Lost: I don’t know how they came to me – I heard I was in contention for the role, so I just waited until they were going to decide either way, and a couple days later, I called [my agent] and I said, ‘Listen, call and whatever I have to do to get on that show, you tell them I’m willing to do it. Let me go down and read for it, let me get in there.’ It all worked out very well – they’ve been very kind to me.

On Firefly and Serenity: I’m always at peace with that guy. That [SERENITY] was my vindication. Saying goodbye to Malcolm Reynolds was premature when the series [FIREFLY] was canceled, but being able to come back with SERENITY was a real treat. More than I could ask for.

Baby Spice is frugal and discreet.

It seems that Emma Bunton may be the brightest of all the Spice Girls. Baby Spice has saved her money and has a knack for staying out of the celebrity glare. Her relationship with Justin Timberlake wasn't even discovered until it was over. Three cheers for being discreet! SUN

James Hetfield questioned at airport.

Metallica lead singer James Hetfield was detained at a British airport. The guy is a scary looking dude, but I'm surprised they stopped him. He's very recognizable. No word on whether he was detained because the security guards were big Metallica fans. Star Pulse: British newspaper The Times claims Hetfield's friends blame his "Taliban-like beard" for the interrogation.

Gonorrhea and Daddy issues invade Big Brother house.

Big Brother 8 kicked off last night with a bang. 44 Year old "Evil Dick" was placed in the house alongside his hot 20 year old daughter Danielle who hasn't talked to him in 2 years. She soon erupted into tears after the shock of seeing her Father in the house wore off. Former couple Joe and Dustin weren't thrilled to find themselves in the same house. Within moments of realizing that Dustin may be in the house, Joe announced to the house (AND THE COUNTRY!) that Dustin had given him Gonorrhea. Dustin vehemently denied the.....ahem...charge. CBS

Scary Spice is a sex maniac.

If you are an attractive man who is planning on seeing the Spice Girls in concert, be careful of getting too close to Mel B. Her past conquests have moaned about her insatiable desire for sex.
One of her most famous conquests, actor Max Beesley, was frequently heard moaning to pals that he was “knackered” from having to please her all the time.
The couple got together in 2000 but split in 2002 after a series of public rows.
Max told one pal: “She’s so rampant she leaves me exhausted.”
And her ex-hubby Jimmy Gulzar said the same after their acrimonious divorce.
He said: “Very quickly Melanie became extreme about sex. “She changed from being the unadventurous sexual woman when we first met to absolutely rampant and demanding.”
Melanie retaliated by claiming Gulzar was gay.

Kelly Clarkson thanks her fans.

Kelly Clarkson posted a message on her official website. She's already got the whole country thing down with the "y'all" ......

"What a great week. My December is finally out and like most of you I bought my copy (while in New York City doing promo). And check this out, y’all made My December one of the best selling CDs of the week. I wanted to pass that news along to you myself and tell you how thankful I am to have y’all there supporting me. God bless you, hope to see y'all soon and enjoy the music!

Prison Break star insists he likes the ladies.

Wentworth Miller says that he is not dating a man. The "Prison Break" star insists that long work hours are the reason he isn't seen with women.
He said, "We are on the set maybe 14 hours a day, five days a week. It doesn't leave a whole lot of time for socializing - I don't get a lot of chance to date. But it's definitely something, a wife and kids, that I'm looking forward to experiencing at some point in the very near future."

Sun : A source said: “Brad shares a lot of the same passions as Steve McQueen — including a love of motorbikes and fast cars — so it was a dream role for him.”

Gay Doctor Who star John Barrowman may have sex with a woman.

How easy is it to get women to have sex with you? Be famous, good looking John Barrowman who plays Captain Jack on "Dr. Who" is in a committed gay relationship with Scott Gill. The pair are looking to have children someday. StarPulse: He says, "One day I might want to have children and in order to have a child, you either do it artificially or you have sex with a woman. And you can never say no to anything. I do have a couple of very good friends who have said: 'If you want to do it, I'll be happy to do it.' So I could possibly have sex with a woman but it would be for a reason - to procreate, not for sexual enjoyment."

Topanga loses 25 pounds and goes bikini shopping.

Remember "Boy Meets World"? I admit that I do. "Topanga" aka Danielle Fishel has grown up and packed on the pounds in recent years. Recently, the 26 year old cutie has lost 28 pounds using NutriSystem and will be appearing in ads for the company soon. Danielle went shopping for a bikini to wear in the TV spot. People has the video. I approve.......

Hey Paula! Nobody is watching.

Paula Abdul's reality series "Hey Paula" was a ratings disaster. I watched the first episode. It's fun watching her bizarre behavior. Apparently, I'm one of the very few who think so.

Paula Abdul was Bravo’s newest attempt at making a reality star out of a quirky has-been, but the ratings for her new reality TV show were less than desirable.
With a total of only 607,000 viewers – that’s about half the amount Being Bobby Brown received – it’s safe to say Hey Paula is a reality TV bomb.
The show premiered last Thursday with two original back-to-back half hour episodes, and hardly made a mark on the TV ratings scale.
The few that did watch are asking for that hour of their lives back, saying the show is incredibly dull and even Paula’s nonsensical antics fail to entertain.
At least she still has American Idol.

Mischa Barton is looking for a mature Mr. Right.

It looks like Mischa Barton and I may be a perfect fit.
She says, "I'd like someone who makes me laugh. I like an intellectual guy, because I love to read. If they like movies, books and music, we're pretty alright. And I'd like someone who's mature; God, I can't take another immature person!"
Is it me or does that quote make her sound immature? In any case, I like movies, books and music. I'm a bit older than Mischa, but what the heck. I'll give it a shot. E-mail me Mischa at

Is Sienna Miller "Making The Band" with P Diddy?

Sienna Miller and P Diddy spent the night together at a London nightclub. Romance rumors soon followed. I'm just thrilled that I read a Sienna story without Mr. You know who mentioned!
The pair were together almost all evening at the rapper's post-Concert for Diana party at top nightspot Paper.
Diddy - who has twin girls and an eight-year-old son with his long-term partner Kim Porter - had six security guards form a ring around his table to keep other revelers away.
However, after noticing how many people were engrossed by their flirtatious antics, the pair moved to a private area of the club where they relaxed behind a curtain.
A source told Britain's Daily Mirror newspaper: "Before Sienna arrived Diddy had been stranded in the middle of the dancefloor on his own table. But when he discovered Sienna was at the club, he immediately asked to be moved to the VIP area."

Will Jack Bauer be taking orders from a female President?

TV Guide reports that there's a good chance that a female President will be running the country next season on "24". There's also a shot at having a high profile female FBI agent as a main character. The producers of "24" warn that nothing is set in stone. Peter MacNicol definitely won't be back on "24". The hard working actor has signed on full time on CBS' "Numbers".

Nicolas Cage & son create "Voodoo Child"

"Voodoo Child" hits comic shelves on July 11. The 6 issue limited series was created by Nicolas Cage & his son, Weston. I'm a comic book fan & I'm curious to check this one out. Can Nicolas & son create comic book magic Ala Kevin Smith? We'll see.....
.....So Cage and his 16-year-old son, Weston, brainstormed an idea that would become Voodoo Child, a six-issue illustrated series that hits shelves July 11 and marks one of the first launched by an A-list actor......Voodoo Child is different because it's "more spiritual than, say, a Superman or a Batman," Cage says. "That's always been more effective because there's more believability to it."
