Coldplay singer Chris Martin has walked out of a BBC interview while promoting the band's new album.
Nine minutes into the pre-recorded interview for Radio 4 arts show Front Row, the 31-year-old asked to leave the studio as he was not enjoying himself.
The band's drummer, Will Champion, was left to answer questions from presenter John Wilson until Martin returned for one final question.

Her rep describes the accident as "minor."
Gorgeous redhead Marcia, who plays picture-perfect Bree on the ABC show, is mom to 15-month-old twin girls, EDEN and SAVANNAH.
There's no denying Lindsay Lohan's "thriller" I Know Who Killed Me was among the most critically and commercially reviled B-movies of last year — of any year, really. But now that IKWKM is approaching cable oblivion with its premiere June 14 on Starz, we doubt our inbox has ever seen a publicity campaign this wonderfully defensive or reactionary — almost Warholesque in its celebration of its own product's awfulness, proudly emphasizing its Razzie Award cred and critical pull quotes exhorting viewers to check out "a disaster that exerts a perverse fascination" (Variety) or "the monumental trashiness of this mess" (NY Daily News).
“Pamela and the kids have moved in with me,” said a beaming Tommy Lee (speaking, of course, of his ex-wife and sex-tape costar Pamela Anderson and their two sons, Brandon and Dylan). “It’s awesome, man. It’s definitely working. You can tell on the kids’ faces — they’re happy when we’re together.”
Friday's premiere of "The Incredible Hulk" should prove big box office numbers, but not with any help from star Edward Norton.
Norton, I'm told, has slipped off to a desert island rather than do publicity for the movie he stars in and nominally wrote.
I say nominally because there's been a dispute right along about who did what on "Hulk." The screenplay is credited to "X-Men 3" writer Zak Penn, who definitely wrote the original draft and mapped out the movie.
But wasn't it only last July 2007 that Norton boasted of writing the screenplay at Comic-Con, the convention for people who trade comic books and associated materials? Uh, yes, he did.
I'm told that Norton did substantially rewrite the Penn draft, added lots of dialogue, and worked on the character of the Hulk's alter ego Bruce Banner to make him more human.
But Norton fell out with Marvel and Universal and declined to do much publicity. This left the bulk of it to co-star Liv Tyler.
Interestingly, Norton is not signed to do the typical two sequels to this "Hulk," although Tyler is and so, I'm told, is director Louis Leterrier. The reason for Norton holding out is likely a money issue. Could he be replaced in future versions? Undoubtedly, although that would be a shame. He's terrific as the un-jolly green giant.
Meantime, some Web sites like Cinematical have noted that Universal is using Robert Downey Jr.'s surprise appearance in "Hulk" as Tony Stark aka Iron Man in their TV commercials. Downey's presence was supposed to be a big twist at the end -- so much so that I kept it out of my review the other day. But I guess that Marvel and Universal want to capitalize on "Iron Man"'s huge box office.
So then the question is, will the "Iron Man" and "Hulk" sequels include a crossover by each character? Only Stan Lee knows the answer to that one.
As she completes work on her third album for the Universal Music Group, multi-talented Universal Motown artist LINDSAY LOHAN is setting the stage for a major mass-media re-entry over the coming months. “Bossy,” the seductive and irresistibly rhythmic new track leaked from the yet-untitled upcoming album, recalling in form and attitude the street-flavored girl-group dance floor classics of the electro era, has drawn hundreds of thousands of youtube.com streams in barely a week, and a collective thumbs-up from young viewers.
This month, Lohan is also joining one of television’s most-admired ensemble casts in the season finale of the Emmy-winning ABC comedy Ugly Betty. Playing an old schoolmate and antagonist, Lohan will guest star in a plot arc that will start at the finale episode airing on May 22, and extend into the first five episodes of the series’ fall 2008 season.
“Bossy” was co-written by platinum Island/Def Jam singer-songwriter Ne-Yo and track producers Stargate (Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel S. Eriksen), whose previous collaborations include the enormous worldwide hits “Unfaithful” by Rihanna, “Irreplaceable” by Beyonce and Ne-Yo’s own signature tune “So Sick.” Separately, Stargate are also the producers of such diverse all-format smashes as “Don’t Stop the Music” by Rihanna, “Beautiful Liar” by Beyonce and Shakira, “With You” by Chris Brown, “Bye Bye” by Mariah Carey, and “Wait For You” by Elliott Yamin.
Lindsay Lohan has four RIAA sales certifications, including a platinum album for her 2004 debut, the Billboard No. 4 album Speak, a gold certification for her second album, A Little More Personal (Raw), and a gold digital single award for “Rumors.”
Lohan’s films have grossed over $420 million in domestic box office, and include starring roles in Freaky Friday (earning a Golden Globe nomination), Mean Girls, and The Parent Trap, as well as ensemble parts in A Prairie Home Companion and Bobby.

Journey's new "Revelation" album sells an incredible 104,000 copies in first week to debut at #5 on Billboard!
Congrats to the band. I just wish that former singers Steve Augeri and Jeff Scott Soto were treated better......
JOURNEY’s new three-disc CD/DVD package REVELATION has sold more than 104,000 copies in its debut week according to Wal-Mart Stores, marking the band’s biggest first week’s sales since 1996’s TRIAL BY FIRE. Released June 3, REVELATION is being sold exclusively at Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club in North America, Walmart.com and Samsclub.com, and Journey’s official website, Journeymusic.com. REVELATION’s first week’s sales marks a 1400% increase over the band’s 2005’s first week’s sales of GENERATIONS."We are thrilled with the early success of Journey's ‘Revelation’ music project, and clearly our customer is excited about it too,” said Jeff Maas, Divisional Merchandise Manager, Entertainment, Wal-Mart U.S. “We believe that if we continue to find innovative products, priced to showcase the value, our customers will show their excitement by purchasing the product.

All of the music on REVELATION was produced by Kevin Shirley (who previously worked with JOURNEY on their Platinum-certified TRIAL BY FIRE album).REVELATION marks a new chapter in the legendary career of multi-Platinum rockers JOURNEY, thanks to two singles at Rock and AC radio (“Never Walk Away” and “After All These Years”) and rave reviews, including the New York Times who hailed: “…the band seems to have taken rock vitamins: it feels alive.”JOURNEY--Neal Schon (guitar), Jonathan Cain (keyboards), Ross Valory (bass), Deen Castronovo (drums) and Arnel Pineda (vocals)—is currently on a European tour through June 28. They’ll start a massive summer U.S. tour with special guests Heart and Cheap Trick on July 9 in Denver, CO.
How will it do against all the other blockbusters?

In a flash, your life can change forever…
Something bizarre has happened in the town of San Perdido . In a flash, everyone over the age of fourteen has disappeared. Poof. Gone. A strange impenetrable force field encircles the town, and as the stranded kids struggle to survive on their own, they discover that some of them are developing new talents—unimaginable, dangerous, deadly powers—that grow stronger by the day. And unfortunately, not all the kids with these new-found powers are good…
“This intense, marvelously plotted, paced, and characterized story will immediately garner comparisons to Lord of the Flies, or even the long-playing world shifts of Stephen King, with just a dash of X-Men for good measure. A potent mix of action and thoughtfulness—centered around good and evil, courage and cowardice—renders this a tour-de-force that will leave readers dazed, disturbed, and utterly breathless. Grant’s novel is presumably the first in a series, and while many will want to scream when they find out the end is not the end, they’ll be glad there’s more in store.”—Booklist (starred review)

New York Post:
FARRAH Fawcett is making millions off her battle with anal cancer. She worked a financial deal with "Entertainment Tonight" earlier this year where the show followed her around to treatments and showed Fawcett's friends videotaping her ordeal. Now, the footage shot by Fawcett's pals is being sold to NBC for "over $2 million," said a source. Craig Nevius, the documentary's producer, said, "We are negotiating with one of the big three networks, but no deal has been signed yet." Presumably, footage would air on both "Today" and "Dateline." Last year, NBC paid close to $5 million to the Prince's Trust in England for interviews with Prince William and Harry.
THE curse of James Bond has struck again - after 007 actor Daniel Craig sliced off the tip off one of his fingers filming an action sequence.
Craig, 39, was taken to hospital today while the 22nd Bond movie, Quantum of Solace was being shot at Pinewood Studios, reports the UK's Daily Mail. It is the second time in two weeks that Craig has been injured during filming. A week ago his face was cut and required eight stitches. But after the injury to his hand in the morning he was back on set to resume filming in the afternoon. "There was quite a lot of blood and it was decided he needed to go to hospital for emergency treatment," explained a member of the Bond production team

Love that Zooey!
Audrina Patridge has finally admitted there is a rift between herself and her “Hills” housemate, Lauren Conrad.
Audrina and LC have reportedly been feuding for weeks, but a recent scheduling snafu caused a bigger tear in the girls’ friendship, according to OK! magazine.
The brunette was recently having her photo taken by OK!, when LC came home and grew angry that Audrina was doing the shoot in the backyard. LC was reportedly angry because she had sold the rights to an exclusive shoot of her backyard to another magazine.
“She was very, very, very mad,” Audrina told OK! “She said it’s her house. But this is my room.”
Audrina said she explained things to LC, but the blonde remained angry.
“I said, ‘We’re not taking pictures of your house – don’t be rude.’ It just adds to the tension,” Audrina said. “Now she thinks I’m sneaky and shady for doing this photo shoot, yet she and her team knew about it. She won’t let go.”
Now here's a Heroes newcomer I can get behind — if only because it could offer Veronica Mars fans a very special reunion. Francis Capra, aka the toughie 'Ron (and Mars viewers) loved to hate, is joining the NBC hit this fall in the recurring role of Jesse.Who or what is Jesse? Not much (including his power) is being revealed, of course, but thus far I've found out two things: One, TV's former Weevil is playing evil, and two, his villainous storyline will find him crossing paths with Peter Petrelli.Capra's arrival of course promises to reunite him with Veronica herself, Kristen Bell, who is rumored (though not yet confirmed, drat!) to be reprising her own Heroes role this season.
From Oscar-winning director Alex Gibney and producer Graydon Carter comes a probing look into the uncanny life of national treasure and gonzo journalism inventor Dr. Hunter S. Thompson. A fast moving, wildly entertaining documentary with an iconic soundtrack, the film addresses the major touchstones in Thompson’s life—his intense and ill fated relationship with the Hell’s Angels, his near-successful bid for the office of sheriff in Aspen in 1970, the notorious story behind the landmark Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas, his deep involvement in Senator George McGovern’s 1972 presidential campaign, and much more. Narrated by Johnny Depp.
There were false reports that Ashley Tisdale had contracted HIV when she underwent a nose job procedure. I have a hunch that the pranksters got the idea from a South Park episode in which Cartman had a similar problem........
Jeff has had continued problems with prescription drug dependency, suffering from severe back pain after several surgeries while Busey, who claims 13 years of sobriety, is on hand to help the group through the recovery process.
Also joining the show are "American Idol" season one alum NIKKI McKIBBIN, '80s video vixen TAWNY KITAEN, model-actress AMBER SMITH, former Guns N' Roses drummer STEVEN ADLER, SEAN STEWART and RODNEY KING -- who became a household name after his brutal beating by police was caught on video in 1992.
DR. DREW PINSKY will return to bring his expertise as an addictionologist to help take the group through the intense 21-day program.
Filming now, the new season is set to debut in October on VH1.
