    A Swiss boutique clerk is outraged that media mogul Oprah Winfrey embellished their encounter after she lodged racism allegations against the high end Switzerland boutique.

    The Trois Pommes sales assistant said she felt “powerless” and “in a cyclone” after Oprah went on American TV to say she was a victim of racism. Oprah said the saleswoman refused to show her a $35,000 handbag because it was too expensive for her.

    But the saleswoman emphatically denied the incident went down the way Oprah said it did. Trudy Goetz, the shop owner, called the accusations “absurd.”

    “I wasn’t sure what I should present to her when she came in on the afternoon of Saturday, July 20, so I showed her some bags from the Jennifer Aniston collection,” the saleswoman said.

    “I explained to her the bags came in different sizes and materials, like I always do,” the unidentified sales clerk said over the weekend.

    “She looked at a frame behind me. Far above there was the 35,000 Swiss franc crocodile leather bag. I simply told her that it was like the one I held in my hand, only much more expensive, and that I could show her similar bags.”

    “She looked around the store again but didn’t say anything else. Then she went with her companion to the lower floor. My colleague saw them to the door. They were not even in the store for five minutes.”

    The saleswoman denied ever saying, “You don’t want to see this bag. It is too expensive. You cannot afford it.”

    Oprah is being accused of embellishing the story to promote her latest film ‘Lee Daniels ‘The Butler’. Oprah now says she’s sorry she ever mentioned the incident.

    “I’m really sorry that it got blown up,” Oprah said.

    “I purposefully did not mention the name of the store. I’m sorry that I said it was Switzerland.

    “I was just referencing it as an example of being in a place where people don’t expect that you would be able to be there,” she said.

    Oprah and her longtime life partner Gayle King were in Switzerland to attend R&B legend Tina Turner’s wedding.

    Within seconds of “Applause” hitting iTunes, outraged Madonna fans were wagging their collective finger at Lady Gaga (again) — this time for allegedly ripping off 2012 single “Girl Gone Wild”. This kind of thing has to be taken with a grain of salt. Mostly it’s just sour grapes or semi-effective trolling. (Amusingly enough, Little Monsters pulled a similar stunt a couple days earlier when they accused Katy Perry of plagiarizing Sara Bareilles‘ “Brave” on her new single).

    Unlike the obvious similarities between “Express Yourself” and “Born This Way”, this case of thievery draws a fairly long bow. “Applause” and “Girl Gone Wild” do sound similar but that’s not surprising considering they belong to the same Euro-house genre. However, it’s still worth checking out the mash-up being passed around by conspiracy theorists — not because it’s particularly damning, rather because it’s actually quite catchy. Judge for yourself above.

    Is this a knock off or does Team Madonna have too much time on its hands? Voice your opinion in the comments below.

    Bobby Ray is firing back at Kendrick Lamar’s “Control” verse with his own rebuttal “How 2 Rap.”

    Feeling like a hip-hop underdog, B.o.B addresses the critics who crucify him for his pop crossover hits, but he also saves a little heat for Kendrick’s claim of being the best.

    “I hear underrated so much, you would swear it was my name/ Ain’t no rappers on my list/ Come holler at me when you’re done riding each other’s dick/ 25 millions singles worldwide/ I guess I’ll take another hit/ Matter fact I find this rap shit boring/ Man, I’m over it,” raps B.o.B.

    Still no word from any prominent New York rappers or any of the rappers who were name checked by Kendrick, but we’re patiently waiting.

    It looks like it all went on when One Direction appeared on football quiz show 'A League Of Their Own'.

    Not only did Niall Horan get his bum out to reveal a 'tattoo' of host James Corden's face, Harry Styles also planted a lip-smacking kiss on the funnyman.Harry and James got amorous as they re-enacted the 'kiss cam', as seen at many popular US sporting events.

    We can't help but think Nick Grimshaw will be a tad jealous to see Harry in a new blossoming bromance.

    All three members of One Direction take part in a game of Popstar Penalties, which sees each of the singers take their turn in goal, while Blue’s Simon Webbe, Simon Cowell’s ex-girlfriend Sinitta and Spandau Ballet’s Tony Hadley take a penalty against them.

    Robin Thicke - Blurred Lines

    Which you already knew: The very definition of the Song of Summer contest means that you can predict it weeks or even months in advance. The winner should be familiar to the point of exhaustion — except that somehow, the magic of the particular song means that you are still willing to get up and dance when it starts (especially if you're at a wedding, and all your aunts and uncles are losing their minds). It is the song that we all agree to listen to one more time, even in August, when one more time is like the 80 millionth time.

    Though it's strange to remember now, "Blurred Lines" really had to work for the Song of Summer title. Daft Punk's "Get Lucky" was a serious contender through June, and Miley Cyrus made a strong play with "We Can't Stop." Then the "Blurred Lines" video backlash began, and Thicke himself had to make up for an unfortunate interview about the song's misogyny. His label didn't even like the song at first. But here we are, with nine weeks at No. 1, countless parody videos, and a crucial Roots xylophone endorsement. (See also: "Call Me Maybe.") "Blurred Lines" is your champion. Congratulations, Robin Thicke! (Congratulations, Pharrell.)

  • 08/14/13--06:37: Twisted Review: School Ties
  • hollywoodreporter
    Danny Desai's time at Green Grove High is officially on notice. In the latest episode of Twisted, the poisoning attempt issue came back to light.
    Regina Crane's mother also made an angry appearance on "Poison of Interest."
    Does the reappearance of the delightful Mrs. Crane (who I can only picture as True Blood's Nan Flanagan) and the timing of the coach's firing raise any red flags? It seems like a few weeks ago Danny was being victimized with the creepy masks and the stunt at his party and suddenly he returns to school and is the one under fire?
    To think that in last week's episode he and Kyle had made so much progress in getting along and finding more clues to the Regina Crane case.
    How did it suddenly all turn around? What did the coach mean that he couldn't cover for Danny again? Danny denied poisoning Cole with the moth balls and agreed to leave the team quietly after the accusation. As far as Mrs. Crane, I would have liked to see the discussion between her and Karen. Then again, the threeway outburst between Mrs. Crane, Tess and Karen at the hearing was pretty awesome.
    Logistically, it doesn't seem correct that Mrs. Crane would really be able to sit on the school board hearing to determine the fate of the man she's accusing of killing her daughter. There's a definite bias there that clearly interferes with a clean trial. It should've been obvious that it was inappropriate to the entire board when she had an outburst at Tess Masterson for testifying for Danny.
    In other news, Rico put stuck his neck out for Lacey. Granted, it was really so Jo wouldn't get hurt, but it was still nice that he gave Lacey the heads up on the video. That girl Eloise who "never forgets" is definitely the one who ended up leaking it in the end. It's just too bad that Jo had to find out about Lacey and Danny that way.
    Rico: You should try confronting him because he’s clearly intimidated by women.
    Lacey: Um... not that intimidated because he’s an amateur porn director.
    I would've thought it was going to be more of a mystery as to who videotaped Lacey and Danny, but Doug was pretty forthcoming. Guess this show isn't Pretty Little Liars after all. We actually get some answers. Something I really would like an answer to, is this: why

    Penguin Young Readers Group's latest debut author is also one of its target readers: a 13-year-old boy. The division's Grosset & Dunlap imprint has inked Jake Marcionette to a two-book, North American rights deal for his middle-grade series, Just Jake. The first book in the series, about a sixth grader trying to establish his social life at a new school, is set for February 2014.

    Dan Lazar at Writers House sold the series to Francesco Sedita, president and publisher of Grosset & Dunlap. Marcionette, who began the books when he was 12, writes about a boy named Jake Ali Mathews whose life is upended after his family moves from Florida to Maryland. In his new school, Jake struggles to start fresh, while also avoiding the local bully.

    Sedita said that he was "blown away" when he found out that the series, which will also feature illustrations, was written by a 12-year-old. The story, Sedita added, "reminded me of what it felt like to worry about finding the right classrooms, take impossible pop quizzes, and figure out the rules of popularity... and made me laugh the whole way through."

    PYRG plans to publish the second book in the series in February 2015, and has an option on the planned third title.

    The young writer published The Dude Kid on Amazon back in 2010.

    Sedita explained why he acquired the book, in the release:

    I was blown away when I learned that Jake Marcionette was only 12 years old when he wrote Just Jake. This book reminded me of what it felt like to worry about finding the right classrooms, take impossible pop quizzes, and figure out the rules of popularity . . . and made me laugh the whole way through.

    13-year-old Marcionette added:

    School can be scary and challenging in so many ways, but it can also be really funny. Whether in school, at home, or on the lacrosse field, I try to find the “funny” in my daily experiences. This book began as a collection of doodles and sketches of my classmates, and it has developed into a truly AWESOME book.

    The Jonas Brothers will be staging a charity soccer match before the LA Galaxy game this Saturday 8/17. The proceeds will benefit their Change for the Children foundation. To promote the match, the guys filmed a funny fake documentary on the rivalry between their two teams, AC United (Nick's team) and Bilbo Real (Joe & Kevin's team):


    The Jonas Cup started during their tour in 2010, and Nick's team so far is undefeated against Joe and Kevin's team. More info about the game can be found here if you'd like to get tickets and watch Nick bathe newborn kittens in the Jonas Cup for the third year in a row. :)

    Bruce Willis has admitted that he has become "bored" with appearing in action movies.

    The RED 2 and A Good Day to Die Hard star claimed that he doesn't find high-octane parts "exciting".

    The 58-year-old told Spanish publication XLS magazine:"Explosions are one of the most boring parts of my job. When you have seen a few fireballs, it's not exciting anymore. I know part of my audience enjoys the explosions, but to be honest, I'm a bit bored of it now.

    "I am very clear with who I am. I work in all sorts of films, but the action movies are the ones that generate the most revenue. I like to earn lots of money from those, but I do all types: small productions, megaprojects, medium sized, even science fiction."

    Willis added that he doesn't "spend the whole day counting bank notes", and only thinks about his wealth when journalists quiz him on the subject.

    The Die Hard actor was recently dropped from The Expendables 3 by Sylvester Stallone after allegedly making excessive salary demands.

    'I've got a lot to prove,' singer tells MTV News as her Stars Dance World Tour kicks off.

    Months of preparation, hard work and hours upon hours of rehearsal culminate Wednesday night (August 14) as Selena Gomez hits the stage for the very first time on her Stars Dance World Tour.

    Gomez kicks off the global trek in Vancouver, British Columbia, where she will perform songs from her chart-topping album in front of thousands of Selenators, a thought that's giving Gomez some pre-performance jitters.

    "I definitely have anxiety. I'm very nervous, but in the best possible way," Gomez admitted during her last dress rehearsal at the Citizens Bank Arena in Ontario, California. "I love being nervous. The adrenaline takes over and it just makes me want to give my all, so I'm really nervous."

    It's not just the performing that has Gomez nervous: She's putting a lot of pressure on herself this time around to make Stars Dance Tour bigger and better than anything she's done in the past.

    "This is a lot for me. I've got a lot to prove," Gomez said. "I've got a lot to live up to, so I'm just going to try to focus on making it the best it can be. I'll just wish for the best from that point on. Hopefully, people will enjoy it."

    Gomez told MTV News she wants her fans to enjoy the show so much that they leave "exhausted" after dancing the night away.

    "I want people to feel it when they hear the beat on the song, when they see a dance move, that it encourages them to keep going," Gomez said. "I want them to non-stop dance, because that's what I grew up watching in the nosebleeds, going to every Britney show, just still wanting to this day to learn her dance moves because they are so epic, so that's what I'm trying to do: make it fun, original and let them have a great time."

    He's famous for his tantrums 
- from losing 
his cool on The Today Show to storming the stage during Taylor Swift's crowning moment at 
the 2009 MTV VMAs.


    Now Kanye West, 36, has landed himself in trouble with girlfriend Kim Kardashian as his most recent shenanigans - launching himself at a pap and attempting to take the snapper's camera - mean 
he could face jail time.

    Kim, 32 - who's reportedly in the early stages of planning their wedding - read Kanye the riot act over his temper and enlisted the help of a meditation expert 
to help him control his rages.

But she fears it won't be enough and has warned the rapper: 
'I won't be a prison wife.'

    Kanye's clearly had difficulty adjusting to the intense press scrutiny since he joined the Kardashian circus.

    And one thing's become clear over the 
last few months: Kanye is not 
a fan of having his photo taken.

    He charged at a paparazzo who was peppering him with questions at LAX Airport on 19 July and is still waiting to find out if he'll face charges.

    'Kim's absolutely petrified that Kanye's going to be reprimanded.

    'Even if he's let off this time, 
she's worried that with his volatile temper he could end 
up in jail,' reveals a source.

    In this Monday, July 29, 2013 photo, actress Shailene Woodley poses for a portrait while promoting her new film "The Spectacular Now" at the Four Seasons Hotel in Los Angeles. An actress since age 5, Woodley earned notice, and an Independent Spirit Award, for playing the angst-ridden teen daughter of George Clooney's character in 2011's the The Descendants. The Spectacular Now releases Friday, Aug. 2, 2013.

    With four big movies coming out in the next year, it is no surprise to learn that Shailene Woodley is a multitasker.

    "I am currently on a mission," she replies, when asked where she is. "I am on the phone with you, walking through a hotel, up and down elevators, going to a room to do some more interviews after I talk to you."

    Woodley, who became a "name" based on her performance as George Clooney's profane daughter in "The Descendants" and as the title character on TV's "The Secret Life of an American Teenager," has a lot to talk about, starting with "The Spectacular Now," a romantic drama that opens Friday.

    In "The Spectacular Now," Woodley plays Aimee, a bookish high school graduate who takes a shine to troubled classmate Sutter. Inspired by such movies as "Say Anything" and "Dazed and Confused," "The Spectacular Now" is more serious, more character-based and less vampirey than most recent teenage romances.

    "I saw Aimee as somebody who was strong and ambitious, with lots of things that she wanted to do in life but that maybe she didn't have the confidence to do," says Woodley, who is 21. "I knew she wasn't a wallflower or a nerd and I fought really hard to make sure you could see that she was somebody who had almost chosen not to have friends. She had chosen who she was."

    The script for "The Spectacular Now" appealed to Woodley because she can't recall another movie character like Aimee, a loner who is fine with that.

    "I felt like there was something interesting about her decisions being so specific," Woodley says. "It makes her realistic and relatable, and stereotypes never are. We're all more than one thing, and luckily the director (James Ponsoldt) was on the same page as far as what I envisioned Aimee to be."

    Ponsoldt helped Woodley keep Aimee on track, since the actress says she's nothing like her character: "She's so introverted and quiet, so I had to try to tap into that introverted girl thing. I'm an extrovert -- I'm always loud and in the middle of everything and excited all the time."

    That outgoing personality might come in handy when her next two movies, both based on popular books, thrust her into the spotlight. In March, there's "Divergent," the first of a "Hunger Games"-like trilogy in which she plays an inspiring teenage heroine.

    That outgoing personality might come in handy when her next two movies, both based on popular books, thrust her into the spotlight. In March, there's "Divergent," the first of a "Hunger Games"-like trilogy in which she plays an inspiring teenage heroine.

    "We were just at Comic-Con (the annual convention for fans of comics and the movies and TV shows based on them). It was one of those things where I saw the inside of a hotel room and never really saw any of the convention," Woodley says. "We had just wrapped 'Divergent' a few days before that, so it was weird to already be promoting it, but people seemed to love what we shared with them."

    Later next year, there will be the hugely anticipated adaptation of the young adult bestseller, "The Fault in Our Stars." The book is a funny/sad romance about two kids with cancer who find each other, and Woodley is well aware fans of the book will be livid if the movie messes it up.

    "Oh. My. Gosh. I. Am. So. In. Love. With. That Book," Woodley says. "I read the script a year and a half ago and then immediately read the book. I had never read anything that had such an important, universal message and such a beautiful story. I fought so hard for this movie, and I can honestly say that getting to do it is one of the biggest honors in my life."

    Which gives Woodley another task to add to the others she is juggling: Make sure "The Fault in Our Stars" is a good film.

    "It's a huge responsibility," Woodley says. "I was telling (writer John Green) the other day, 'My biggest fear is that we won't do your beautiful book justice.' But the script is great, and I'm going to do everything in my power to make sure we do it as well as we possibly can."

    I think we should get a tag for Shailene Woodley, don't you think?

    Perry's 'Roar' and Lady Gaga's 'Applause' have blasted into the Pop Songs building chart's top 20, with PDs excited about the superstars' returns

    Just as the new tracks from Lady Gaga and Katy Perry are heading for big debuts on Billboard's Digital Songs chart next week, both are in line for lofty moves on the Pop Songs radio airplay chart.

    As reported yesterday, after less than two days of airplay, Perry's "Roar" blasted onto the Nielsen BDS-based survey at No. 34. On the building Pop Songs chart, whose tracking week began yesterday (Aug. 12) and runs through Sunday night (18), "Roar" is, as of this posting, already up to No. 16. (Highlights of the finalized chart, including debuts, will post on Billboard.com on Monday, Aug. 19.)

    Gaga's "Applause," meanwhile, was released yesterday and has quickly joined "Roar" in the top 20, currently ranking at No. 19 on the building tally. (Both songs have received hourly plays on participating Clear Channel Media and Entertainment-owned stations, 'Roar' on Sunday and 'Applause' yesterday.)

    Pop program directors that are spinning both songs are praising each, although a sample of PDs polled reveals a prediction for greater long-term success for "Roar."

    "Both songs have been well-received by our audience, but when it comes to social media, Perry’s 'Roar' has garnered more positive response," says Chase Murphy, PD of KXXM San Antonio. "I think, because of its pop appeal and texture, 'Roar' will probably be embraced by more formats and will eventually be heralded as a bigger song than 'Applause'."

    "So far, listeners have favored the Katy track more, but both songs are getting great reaction," KHOP Stockton, Calif., PD MoJoe Roberts largely echoes. "I think the message in 'Roar' is connecting and resonating more with our female listeners."

    Still, Roberts says, "The Katy single is phenomenal and the Gaga song is great … and much better than expected.

    "This is a great way to start off the fall season," Roberts says, alluding to the pending album releases of Perry's "Prism" (Oct. 22) and Gaga's "ARTPOP" (Nov. 11).

    "Listener reaction has been great on both new releases. I think both stack up well compared to their previous hit singles," assesses WFLZ Tampa, Fla., PD Tommy Chuck.

    Ultimately, Chuck says, Perry and Gaga releasing buzz-generating tracks simultaneously represents not a battle, but an embarrassment of riches for pop radio. "Anytime we have the opportunity to partner with major artists to create excitement for new music, I think it is a great thing.

    "If any other major artists want to drop new hit singles, bring it on!"

    She's been enjoying her last days of summer break on holiday before returning to school this fall.

    And Lourdes Maria Ciccone Leon made sure to take in a full day of tanning as she headed off to the beach with her friends in Cote d'Azur, France on Monday.

    The oldest daughter of pop legend Madonna covered up her bright red bikini with a grey camisole and dark blue denim cut-off shorts.
    The 16-year-old tied her hair up in a ballerina bun and kept her accessories to a minimum, slipping on a couple of necklaces and a pair of trainers after her stop on the sand.
    The trio walked along the ocean front promenade, the boys with beach towels in hand as Lourdes carried a rucksack on her back.

    Whoopi's face says it all...

    Season 17, which premieres on Monday, September 9th, will look a whole lot different from years past. Both Elisabeth Hasselbeck and Joy Behar are no longer with the show, and Jenny McCarthy has joined the roundtable to sit between co-hosts Sherri Shepherd and Whoopi Goldberg.

    And while ABC still has another chair to fill (the show has yet to announce Behar's replacement), the network clearly wants you to know one thing: 'The View' will be a whole lot of fun with McCarthy.

    Joy Behar Says GoodBye To The View

    Barbara Walters threw Joy Behar a 60-minute going-away party on "The View" Friday and Behar said thanks by tossing a blunt f-word at an old Walters adversary.

    Behar ended her brief farewell remarks at the end of the show by saying "something I've been meaning to say on [Walter's] behalf for 16 years: 'Fuck Harry Reasoner.'"

    When Walters broke the gender line by coanchoring the ABC Evening News from 1976 to 1978, Reasoner was her unhappy partner. He was visibly uncomfortable with the arrangement, and Walters later said he made her life difficult.

    Behar started on "The View" on Aug. 11, 1997. Regis Philbin, one of the live guests who dropped in Friday to say goodbye, said he was responsible for Walters first meeting Behar - after which, Walters said, she immediately wanted Behar for "The View."

    Behar's old friend and long-time "View" colleague Meredith Vieira contributed an extended lesbian joke to the farewell, and ended it by planting a kiss on Behar's lips.

    Other drop-ins included Joan Rivers, Alan Alda and Susie Essman, with taped goodbyes from Carol Burnett, Steve Martin and others.

    The show was framed as a "This Is Your Life" episode, with Mario Cantone as host.

    Walters spoke briefly toward the end, prefacing her comments by saying Behar "would always punch a hole in the conversation if it got too sentimental."

    She and Behar exchanged "I love you" messages before Behar briefly thanked family, friends, producers, cohorts and her hair and makeup people before making her closing pronouncement on Reasoner.

    And by the way, if Elisabeth Hasselbeck was watching somewhere and was tempted to send Walters a note saying, "You always liked Joy better!", she would not have been without ammunition.

    When Hasselbeck left the show earlier this summer, her farewell segment lasted less than 15 minutes.

    Who would you like to see as the fifth co-host? Brooke Shields, Ali Wentworth, Hota Kotb, and Mario Cantone are all possible contenders.

    Jeff Garlin really knows how to go on an entertaining rant. The "Curb Your Enthusiasm" star, who's set to anchor ABC's new comedy "The Goldbergs" this fall, blasted the infamous "Game of Thrones" Red Wedding scene in a recent episode of his podcast, "By The Way, In Conversation With Jeff Garlin."

    Dustin Rowles of Uproxx first pointed out the hilarious diatribe, that starts at about the 1:25 minute mark of the podcast. In a conversation with "Breaking Bad" creator Vince Gilligan about how TV budgets and production values have eclipsed that of most indie movies, they got to talking about "Game of Thrones," as one of the HBO drama's directors Michelle MacLaren sat in the audience.

    Garlin took the opportunity to offer a blistering critique of the "Game of Thrones" Red Wedding scene, and the grisly death of one character in particular. He even said he doesn't want to watch the show anymore because of it.

    Check out a transcript of Garland's rant below:

    "Yeah, I'm not gonna watch it anymore, though. I'm sorry. Don't get me started. It pissed me off. I loved that show up until the second to the last episode. It made me angry ... It's an amazing production, but I'm still not gonna watch it.

    I don't trust them anymore. I don't trust the 'Game of Thrones' people. (To Gilligan:) By the way, kill Walter White. You've already done it maybe. Do what you want, but don't stab a pregnant woman in the stomach. That's all I ask of you. Am I wrong?! A character who doesn't die in the books, not only she does she die, but brutally?

    (To MacLaren:) You didn't direct that episode, did you? (MacLaren: No, I didn't.) Will you go back and tell them how upset I am that a character who didn't die ... 'cause I don't mind the other characters dying -- they died in the books. Why not? But a pregnant lady? Stabbed in the stomach? F*** you! That made me nuts. That was the most violent thing I'd ever seen ... I saw 'Drive' -- that was way more violent than anything I saw in 'Drive.' That made me nuts! F*** HBO.

    ... I love HBO. They've been great to me, and hopefully, there'll be more 'Curb Your Enthusiasm.' But ... but ... ahhhh! That's all I'm saying. It's a big ball of wrong.

    (To Gilligan:) And I'm just telling you here, you could've done anything you want with those characters. You didn't stab Skyler when she was pregnant. Were you tempted to? (Gilligan: No.) Exactly. 'Breaking Bad,' a violent f***ing show, would have never stabbed a pregnant lady!"
