    Benjamin Millepied, the choreographer and a former principal at New York City Ballet, will be the new director of dance at the Paris Opera Ballet, starting in September 2014.


    The announcement on Thursday morning at the Palais Garnier by the general director of the Paris Opera, Nicolas Joel, ends months of intense speculation surrounding the successor to Brigitte Lefevre, the director of dance at the Paris Opera since 1995 who plans to retire at the end of the 2013-14 season.


    Mr. Millepied's appointment comes as a surprise as it was generally expected that a current or former company member would be chosen to lead one of the world's grandest and most traditional ensembles. The shortlist was considered to come from a small group of Paris Opera Ballet insiders, including the star dancers, or etoiles, Nicolas Le Riche, due to retire in 2014, and Laurent Hilaire, a ballet master with the company and Ms. Lefevre's right-hand man.


    Although Mr. Millepied, 35, was born in Bordeaux and trained at the Lyon Conservatory, he joined the School of American Ballet as a teenager. His subsequent professional career as a dancer was spent with City Ballet, where he rose quickly through the ranks to become a principal dancer in 2002. He retired in 2011 to focus on choreography, and moved to Los Angeles, where he founded the L.A. Dance Project last year.


    They are also civil servants, with long-term contracts that run until their mandatory retirement, with pension, at 42. And with the notable exception of Ms. Lefevre, directors tend to drop like flies at the Paris Opera. Even Rudolf Nureyev lasted only six stormy, if productive, years in the 1980s, while directors like John Taras and Violette Verdy managed just a few seasons.

    The byzantine politics, scale and bureaucracy of the Paris Opera are worlds away from Mr. Millepied's professional experience. He has long put together touring groups, and even at the peak of his dancing career was an indefatigable organizer of small choreographic projects and festivals with musicians and artists. He is a prolific choreographer who has created works for major companies (including American Ballet Theater, City Ballet and the Paris Opera Ballet), and his public profile is high, thanks partly to his work on the Darren Aronofsky film Black Swan and his subsequent marriage to its star, Natalie Portman.

    But his new company, the L.A. Dance Project, which made its debut in September in Los Angeles, is small and experimental in orientation. (Mr. Millepied said he planned to continue running the L.A. Dance Project until he began his new job, when he would move to Paris with Ms. Portman and their son. He said he hoped the company, which has a budget guaranteed for the next three years, would continue.)


    "It is always a gamble," Ms. Lefevre said in a telephone interview. "I imagine people had something to say when I arrived. But he has a real artistic sensibility and an admirable curiosity. He will have to find his own way between innovation and the house traditions."


    Asked about making the transition from project-based director and choreographer to director of an institution as vast as the Paris Opera, Mr. Millepied smiled.

    "I am not entirely a foreigner,"; he said. "I did grow up in France, and even though I didn't go to the school or dance with the Paris Opera Ballet, I absorbed similar ideas in my training. I understand the scale of a big company. I danced for one for almost 20 years. I think it's an asset that I have absorbed other traditions and had other experiences in the U.S., which I can bring to the dancers here." He added, "But of course I have a lot to learn about this company and its very remarkable and specific qualities."


    Mr. Millepied, who has created two works for the Paris Opera Ballet and has a third commissioned for next season, said he did not plan to prioritize his own choreography in his programming. The core of his artistic vision, he said, would be a strong focus on contemporary ballet repertory.


    "I have great admiration for the way Brigitte has brought choreographers like Jérôme Bel and Pina Bausch into the repertory," he said. "But my interest is in developing the art and the craft of ballet, which is so rich and interesting. This is a great classical company, and I want it to be an environment for the evolution and knowledge of the ballet idiom. I want to develop a new identity, really challenge the dancers, make them dance ballets that are not just the classics."


    Declining to name choreographers whom he would like to invite, he added that his City Ballet career had strongly influenced his choreographic and musical tastes, and that he intended to make commissioned scores a strong part of his artistic program. His other important priority, he said, was to develop in-house choreographic talent.


    "No choreographers have emerged here in a big way for a long time," he said, "but I'm sure the talent is here. There is everything in Paris to create a rich environment for a creative person."

    Asked whether he expected any resentment of an outsider from the Paris Opera Ballet dancers, Mr. Millepied answered simply.

    "We'll see," he said.

    While on her lunch break from greeting kids outside Splash Mountain, Keri Hilson briefly spoke with the good people at HipHollywood and mentioned the infamous “beef” she has with a certain queen. Keri claims there is no issue (once again) and apparently wishes people wouldn’t be so hurtful when it comes to her personal life.

    “No, I don’t have a beef with any female artist,” she says. “We live in such a gullible world. Anything that’s written, anything that’s posted, anything picture that is interpreted one way is taken as truth.”

    “It’s like, I’m human…and it’s hurtful,” she continues. “It’ malicious. It’s not okay to just make up false things about someone, especially in their personal life. Professionally, fine! Scrutinize me all you want. I know that I can’t please everyone, but personally, let’s just leave it alone. It’s going to far.”

    Oh Miss Hilson, we all heard that shady diss track and saw you refuse to hold up a magazine with Beyoncé on the cover, so you tried it with that “gullible” malarkey. Clearly you have a problem with the woman, so just say that.

    Other than that, I can understand that millions of stans calling you a vulture working for Rent-A-Center must be tough, but this is your lot in life. Walk it off and release a new album, girl.

    The actors who play onscreen gay couple Doug and Ste have decided to bare all for this month’s special ‘naked’ issue of Gay Times in support of the Terrence Higgins Trust, the UK’s largest HIV and sexual health charity.

    “A lot of young people are clearly not informed about HIV and that’s baffling to me because the information is out there and readily available.” begins Brennan. “A decade ago it was still being called an epidemic and the terminology made it sound serious, but because the chat about it has changed there’s people who think the medication for HIV is good enough so you can live a normal life. But there’s still a harsh reality that comes with living with HIV. I don’t understand why people wouldn’t take precautions to save their lives.”

    Richardson adds: “Our show appeals to a younger audience and if they buy GT to see us and then read why we’re doing this, it will hopefully teach those who are ignorant to the risks of unsafe sex. People go on nights out, get really drunk and think with their penis and not their brain. And if they haven’t got a condom they think it’s fine and they still have sex. All the gay bars I go to give away free condoms. I‘m surprised straight clubs don’t do it too because HIV isn’t just a gay problem.”

    Brennan adds: “Personally, I didn’t find it easy to come out at all. I come from a very conservative Catholic background. They love me wholeheartedly but I was scared of watching them adjust and a lot of their concerns and worries are so deeply rooted inside of me. That’s still something I have to work out to eventually be a happier, gay man and actor.”

    Author Lois Lowry confirms Jeff Bridges to start filming The Giver in Spring 2013




    Jeff Bridges has been interested in making a film o The Giver ince the 1990s, when Lois Lowry’s dark science fiction novel for young adults was a bestseller. The story has yet to shoot. But yesterday in an interview with Kurt Andersen Lowry confirmed that the film has a green light.


    I’ve just heard within the past couple of days tha The Giver, which they’ve been trying to make into a movie for 15 years, is finally on the road,” she told Andersen. “Things have ratcheted up, and they have producers and money and a director and a star. They hope to start shooting it in the spring.” Jeff Bridges will play the Giver, the powerful elder who holds all of his community’s memories. “As we speak,” Lowry said, “they’re interviewing young boy actors for the role of Jonas,” the 12-year-old who is chosen as the Receiver of those memories, and learns the appalling secrets behind his community’s orderly, peaceful way of life.

    News of Bridges’ production began circulating again this fall, but as recently as October, Lowry was dubious. “Every now and then, some big studio gets involved, and some major player gets involved,” she told Entertainment Weekly. “And then time passes, and it all collapses again. I should be feeling excited, as if now is the time it’s actually going to be made. But this has happened so often before.”

    Bridges originally intended the film to star his father, Lloyd, who died in 1998. hile he’s hardly the long-bearded ancient depicted on the cover o The Giver (Lowry, a photographer, took the picture herself), Bridges at 63 has gravitas to spare.

    Mysterious Swedish synth-abusers the Knife are all set to release Shaking The Habitual, their first proper album since 2006′s classic Silent Shout. The album’s first single is a wriggling, pounding nine-minute opus called “Full Of Fire,” and the powers that be have been taking down 30-second previews of the track for the last few days. Miraculously, though, a fully-intact version of the track has made its way to YouTube. Hurry up and listen, because it bangs hard and it probably won’t be up for long.



    You can also listen to it here.


    Shaking the Habitual arrives April 8th in the UK and Europe and the following day in North America via Brille/Mute Records.

    Don't count on finding one of those discontinued "Django Unchained" slave toys on eBay any time soon, the action figures have now been banned from the auction website.

    The Weinstein Company (which produced the film) discontinued the promotional figurines in response to a massive backlash from several African-American advocacy groups.

    After the toy company halted production, the toys began to pop up on eBay as "rare" collectibles ... and bids skyrocketed.



    But last night, all the listings for the "Django" toys were yanked from the website -- and eBay explained itself to sellers with an email, saying, "Since the manufacturer of this product has discontinued the item’s sale due to its potentially offensive nature, we are not allowing it to be sold on eBay.”

    eBay also cautioned the sellers not to re-list the items.

    A rep for the auction website confirmed the story, telling us, "These [toys] were removed as they were in violation of our Offensive Materials policy."

    Exclusive First Look: USA's 'Graceland'
    ETonline declared USA's Graceland one of 2013's Six Best New Shows, and now we're thrilled to show you why -- thanks to an exclusive teaser that takes you inside the series premiere!

    Created by White Collar's Jeff Eastin, Graceland revolves around a beachside mansion that houses agents from the DEA, the FBI and U.S. Customs as they live together, work together and play together -- but most amazingly of all, the entire thing is based on a true story, which is what attracted Eastin to the project.

    For their part, each actor was drawn to different elements of the show. For Aaron Tveit, he loved that this was not just a procedural cop show, Vanessa Ferlito says she found the interpersonal dynamics between all the agents to juicy to resist and Daniel Sunjata dug how dark the show gets.

    All three elements are just part of what makes Graceland a thrilling, intense, unexpected and much-welcome addition to USA's already stellar line-up of shows!


    Check out ETonline's exclusive first look video above, and tune in to Graceland this summer on USA!

    Paul McCartney has said that when he was growing up he always thought of vegetarians as being wimps. 

    McCartney was converted to vegetarianism by his late ex-wife Linda and revealed his old thoughts on the subject as he promoted the meat-free lifestyle she pioneered in aHuffington Post blog. The former Beatles star writes: "Growing up in Liverpool, I would have thought of a vegetarian as a wimp. We could be a prejudiced bunch at times but I'm not sure people would automatically think like that these days."

    He went on to add: "I've been a vegetarian for a long time now and over the years I've seen how the attitudes have changed around the world, so I'm not surprised when I see new research that shows more and more people are increasingly adopting 'meat free eating'. Even 20 years ago, it could sometimes be difficult to find vegetarian options in good restaurants. Now it's great to see more and more choice with some brilliant creative dishes in restaurants, cafés and supermarkets. There is definitely now an overall greater acceptance of being vegetarian."

    McCartney is set to provide the music for a new animated TV advert for Linda's range of vegetarian foods. His song, recorded in studio sessions with Mark Ronson, will be revealed when the advert airs on January 28. The #LoveLinda campaign will mark the first time in 15 years that the Linda McCartney brand has done TV advertising with the ad featuring an animated version of the McCartney family. 


    In addition to McCartney, Elvis Costello has recorded the voiceover on the advert. Speaking about fellow vegetarian Linda, Costello said: "Linda always talked well and made it seem that you wouldn’t be joining a secret weird society by being vegetarian."

    After far too long away from the game, Neill Blomkamp returns this year with his highly anticipated follow-up to District 9: the Matt Damon-starring Elysium. Blomkamp exploded from out of nowhere in 2009 with his analogous, modern Sci-fi masterpiece, and it instantly marked him as one to watch for the future. With 4 (count ‘em!) Academy nods and heaps of praise from all quarters, excitement is understandably building for his second feature. Here are a few things we can expect from Elysium…

    Turns out it was Earth all along. Blomkamp pulled an interesting little trick by using District 9‘s human/alien segregation to explore apartheid and themes of segregation. Some of the best Sci-fi works as a kind of defamiliarisation, in that it takes a facet of life as we know it and twists it into something simultaneously alien and eerily familiar. Look at something like Invasion of the Body Snatchers (1978) – it encapsulates the paranoia of the era (Watergate, anyone?) perfectly, and in a way that is removed enough from its source to make for a non-preachy piece of entertainment. It’s a fine line of course, what with Avatar‘s gorgeous looks and pure entertainment value not quite distracting from its bludgeoning message of “Umm…the war in Iraq is bad mmkay?” It’s made fairly clear that apartheid is the major issue that is being examined in District 9, but it focuses upon the very issue itself, rather than having some gung-ho soldiers with a collective social conscience kicking against the injustices of a brutal ruling regime. Sure, protagonist Wikus (Sharlto Copley) does come around to the injustices, but only because he has been implicated in the alien struggle purely by accident. His transformation into one of the creatures is terrifying and visceral; an exaggerated comment on just how difficult it is for South Africa to face up to its past. It works because it distracts us with its winning combination of body-horror and emphasis on character over theme.

    The first half-hour is unsettling to say the least. Forced evictions, slums, murdered non-conformists and the burning of alien spawn paint an uncomfortable picture. It is the novelty side of things that make the film so impressive: found-footage style, alien invaders who don’t really want to invade, and the Johannesburg setting seemingly make things too far removed from reality. Acknowledging the camera serves to heighten the fiction when we see it on a big screen, non-aggressive invaders seem somewhat silly and Johannesburg is so far away that it might as well be Oz. However, the things that initially alienate the film from the real world seem sinister when examined. The found-footage approach mostly gives way shortly after the initial eviction scene, shifting focus from the overarching theme to the human involvement therein, which feels a little more real. Those easily penned-in aliens seem a little too human in their weakness and compliance. Throw a vicious Nigerian gang into the slums of District 9 and you’ve got an analogy for every broken-down neighbourhood and slum ever to exist. Crime moves in and takes advantage, the government leaves things be until the issue gets too close to the “nicer” parts of town, and only then is action taken. You only have to look up District Six in South Africa’s recent history to see the kinds of things Blomkamp is getting at in District 9.

    Such an assured approach to his debut suggests that Elysium‘s thematic ideas will be handled in a similarly impressive manner. The plot of Elysium seems loaded with allusion to the whole Occupy Movement, 99%-ers business etc. In the film, the wealthiest of the wealthy live on a space station, far away from the poor who have been left on a decaying planet Earth. That one line of plot screams “WE ARE THE 99%!”, doesn’t it? The issue may be a fairly cheap one to address right now. The Dark Knight Rises, for example, has already had a go at it. The problem with TDKR‘s attempt is simple: it all looks too familiar. Every man and his boy-wonder side-kick knows that Gotham City is just the gritty parts of New York on a bad day. That being said, it’s no stretch to imagine that there is also a “money” element to Gotham; a place where the rich can look down upon the poor with a grimace. You don’t have to squint too hard to make the Gotham Stock Exchange look a lot like Wall Street. The idea is generally undercooked, what with the comic book constraints that must ultimately limit even the greatest adaptations of the medium’s best work, yet it does make for intriguing viewing. With a more concerted effort and a script not restricted by the laws of adaptation, Neill Blomkamp should find himself with significantly more fertile ground to work from than his peers. We could potentially be looking at the first great Sci-fi film to address the financial state of our time.

    The foundations that Blomkamp has laid down with District 9 seem to have attracted a veritable dream-team of talent and perks. First off, the reported $100,000,000 budget is a massive step up from the $30,000,000 that Blomkamp managed to do so much with in his debut feature. District 9 succeeded in its attempt at a tricky illusion: making a relatively low-budget Sci-fi look like a genuine Hollywood blockbuster. Just imagine what the people behind the undeniably visually-impressive District 9 can do with a massively inflated budget.

    Of course, inflated budget does not necessarily mean a better movie. They gave Richard Kelly almost $20,000,000 to follow up the comparatively cheap Donnie Darko, and what happened? I’ll tell you what happened: the critical and commercial flop that is Southland Tales, which managed only around half a million dollars worldwide during its cinematic run. Personally, I don’t have too many qualms with it as a film, but it certainly is a disappointment when you consider just how good Donnie Darko was. The recent Transformers franchise proves that an ever-expanding budget doesn’t buy you a good movie. The first installment was grounded in humanity, the story of a boy buying his first car is timeless. Then came the robots, you know, that staple of adolescence. An extra $50,000,000 on each of the sequels did more harm than good, with the franchise leaning more upon the jaw-dropping special effects than any kind of humanity. I swear, Revenge of the Fallen had some of the worst character development I have ever seen. Megan Fox stand close to Shia LaBeouf, some moody music plays, then the camera runs around them in a circle. It’s not exactly expertly crafted dramatic framing, is it? Revenge of the Fallen acts as a cautionary tale for Sci-fi/action movies, in that it showed the results of what happens when special effects become the focus of a film. Sure, it’s great to look at, but you just don’t feel invested in the characters. The fact that I cared far more for the machines than any human character is pretty damning.

    In contrast, take a look at District 9. Blomkamp has crafted a protagonist with an easily-identifiable persona and enough backstory-heft to make it easy to care for him. Wikus is flawed and very human, but he is also tragic. His Kafkaesque transformation is engaging, and even though the writing is deserving of praise, Sharlto Copley’s grounded and believable performance is the key to success. His dorky office worker is relatable (anyone who has ever worked in an office will know someone like him), and the familial touches – his birthday party, for example – are handled brilliantly by Copley. His desperation is palpable, and even his less-noble acts later on are made understandable by Copley’s natural translation of the character.

    The follow-up to a debut hit is always tricky business. I mentioned Richard Kelly earlier, and he’s not the only director to stumble at the second picture. Rian Johnson burst onto the scene with high-school noir flick Brick, then lost a lot of goodwill with the throwaway The Brothers Bloom. He bounced back last year with Looper, but that doesn’t disguise the fact that his second film was not quite up to scratch. Then again, some directors have succeeded in impressively following-up, and even bettering, their debut. Tarantino is a startling example of this – somehow eclipsing the refreshing Reservoir Dogs with Pulp Fiction.

    If you’re a fan of Sci-fi, you’ll know that there is some exciting talent out there. Alex Garland, who wrote screenplays for Dredd, Never Let Me Go and the criminally underrated Sunshine is a great example. It is important that new talent is encouraged within the genre. (An interesting note: Garland originally wrote a treatment for the long-awaited Halo movie, whilst Blomkamp has been rumoured as a possibility to direct). It’s genuinely inspiring to see that there are plenty of possible maestros being given their chance. Gareth Evans may be a controversial choice for the Godzilla reboot, but it is a great show of faith in young talent. Similarly, Josh Trank is attached to the latest attempt at a Fantastic Four movie, and after Chronicle, it seems that the sky is the limit for that young man.

    Blomkamp has already shown flashes of a special talent, and Matt Damon has said of his director that he may well be this generation’s James Cameron. Hopefully Blomkamp will conduct himself with a higher degree of subtlety than Mr. Cameron, but it is high praise from a man who has worked with his fair share of quality directors. Elysium is, without doubt, a make-or-break moment, but with so much promise shown in District 9, it seems impossible to think that Blomkamp will waste his opportunity. Sci-fi is a genre ripe with potential for social commentary, philosophical debate and some good old-fashioned balls-to-the-wall action. Such a thrilling prospect is not often found in other genres due to their familiarity with the “real world”, and Neill Blomkamp could prove to be the leading light in one of the most talented batches of Sci-fi talent that has ever been.

    I cut out a couple of parts from the article and its still really long (if you want to read about the D9 weapons and Matt Damon go to the source) but its an interesting read. This article does remind me though that I still need to buy the District 9 art book.

    I went to see The Heiress last night with my friend (4th row, we had better seats than Harvey Weinstein and Taye Diggs!) and Queen Jessica was amazing. Afterwards, we stood outside in 15 degree weather to meet Jessica and Dan Stevens from Downton Abbey. It was worth it to meet my queen!!!!

    Dan was very nice and hugged a lot of people. He is sooooo handsome up close, I wanted to get on stage and maul him. Jessica was an absolute sweetheart (albeit making us wait a hour in the freezing cold! But she apologized anyways) and used sign language with me (I'm Deaf) and I was amazed at how beautiful, intelligent and adorable she was. I fully stan for her now.

    I still can't believe I took an iPhone selfie with Jessica!!
