    Jumping to conclusions before the facts are in is par for the course these days. As is the blind leap to vilify Harvey Weinstein over anything mildly controversial that he has even dared look sideways at (though yes, his track record is poor, but generally the dude knows what he’s doing), but at the Deauville American Film Festival in France, actress Tilda Swinton made some pointed, not-so-exactly subtle remarks about the brouhaha over Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-Ho's upcoming Weinstein sci-fi thriller, "Snowpiercer."

    While the director played down the controversy surrounding the supposed 20 minutes that were snipped from his sci-fi epic about a train that traverses a frozen, post-apocalyptic earth (“Actually, it’s not true. It’s a rumor”), “Snowpiercer” actress Tilda Swinton didn’t exactly downplay things. “There’s no question that all English speaking audiences deserve to see director Bong’s cut, and we hope very much that we will all see it,” the otherworldly actress said, after the director claimed that most territories would be getting his director’s cut.

    Swinton went on to describe the effects of the film, saying: “Maybe an effect of the film, it just occurred to me, is that when one has spent two hours in the claustrophobia of this train we can leave the cinema and feel the relief that we can make life wider, so maybe it’s a sort of aversion therapy to sit in the train for two hours.” She then added, in a not-so-subtle way, to fuel the speculation, “That’s two hours, not one hour and forty minutes.

    But what is going on with the movie? “Snowpiercer,” which costars “Captain America” himself, Chris Evans (who has remained more diplomatic about the issue), recent Oscar winner Octavia Spencer, John Hurt, Jamie Bell and Bong Joon-Ho regular Song Kang-Ho, has been breaking records in South Korea and earning rave reviews, although no domestic release date has been scheduled.

    "Me and The Weinstein Company are still negotiating about everything," the director said at Deauville. "The movie at the festival, the French version is my own director’s cut. In Korea, Japan, France and many other European countries have all bought my director’s cut. And for North America we are still negotiating with The Weinstein Company, we are discussing."

    So, while the 20 minutes previously reported is untrue, that doesn’t mean that Harvey and his infamous Scissorhands are being kept out ofSnowpiercer.” Hopefully the potential commerciality of a sci-fi movie with a bunch of international movie stars will trump the artistic compromise of some kind of lengthy cut, but the final decision seems to still be very much in flux.

    On an "encore presentation" of her CBS show The Talk that aired Aug. 30, Underwood railed against "nappy" "Afro" hair during a discussion about Heidi Klum saving her children's hair after it had been cut. Klum's children with ex-husband Seal have "huge Afros," as she described them.

    Upon hearing that Klum saves their hair, Underwood responded, "Why would you save Afro hair?" She went on to imply that nobody wants that type of hair, saying that you never hear of a woman in a hair shop asking for that "curly, nappy, beady" hair.

    Tom Cruise has reportedly launched a search to find a new girlfriend.

    The Hollywood star has been single since splitting from his ex-wife Katie Holmes last year. It seems he is eager to settle down and is looking for a new relationship. However, Tom is apparently choosy when it comes to love. According to British magazine Grazia, the 51-year-old actor is looking for someone who has been a member of the Church of Scientology for at least five years and is involved in the entertainment industry.

    The lady also apparently has to be brainy and in her mid to late 30s.

    "Tom needs to be strict about his criteria because he wants to avoid a disastrous match and he needs them to understand his hectic lifestyle and all that comes with it," a source told the publication.
    A dating service has reportedly been set up within the Church of Scientology to help Tom find the perfect partner.
    So far it seems that one possible candidate has been found. She is described as an "unidentified actor" who is friends with Orange Is the New Black actor Laura Prepon.

    Tom was apparently introduced to the lucky lady at a recent gala event at the Scientology centre.
    "Tom seemed impressed but he's keen to see who else might be out there," revealed an insider.
    The star was recently linked to actor-and-model Jessica White, who is also a Scientologist.
    Last month, former Scientologist Anette Iren Johansen claimed she had been "auditioned" to be Tom's wife in 2005.

    Apparently this Jessica White rumor is from earlier.

    Nearly a year after his divorce from Katie Holmes, love-starved Tom Cruise is desperately trying to land a girlfriend, a source says.
    The 51-year-old superstar, who’s worth an estimated $270 million, has even enlisted his teenage son Connor to help him find Miss Right. But he reportedly has his heart set on landing a stunner in her 20s, and that could be a mission impossible.

    “Tom is lonely and very much wants a woman in his life right now,” disclosed an insider.

    “He’s not used to being alone and believes that appearing to be a failure in the love department lessens his star power. He’s been combing through his contact list to call old girlfriends, and he’s hitting on young model types in hotspots – but so far, no luck.”

    Meanwhile, sources say that Tom is now hot for gorgeous, 29-year-old model Jessica White, who previously dated Sean Penn and recently became a Scientologist.

    “Tom volunteered to be Jessica’s personal Scientology tutor as a way to get close to her,” revealed the insider. “He’s bowled over by her exotic looks.”

    But so far, nothing has gelled between them. And even a recent endorsement from Cher, who called Tom one of her five top lovers, hasn’t helped his quest.”

    Hayao Miyazaki, largely referred to as Japan's Walt Disney, both for his kindly public demeanor and the fact that he's made a collection of stone cold animated classics (among them "My Neighbor Totoro" and "Spirited Away"), held a press conference in Tokyo to confirm that, yes, he is retiring and yes, you should be really, really, ridiculously sad. Still (silver lining alert): he hopes to maintain a presence at Studio Ghibli, the production company that he founded.

    "I'd like to work for at least 10 more years, but I think that making feature films is no longer my job," Miyazaki said. The filmmaker has made the same claim at least twice before, something that he acknowledged. "I'm going to be free. At the same time, as long as I can drive my car to the studio, I'll go. If there are things I want to do, then I will," Miyazaki said.

    The animator, a meticulous perfectionist, “would take six or seven years. I’m going to be 73 years old and I would be 80 by the end.” He then joked that he might become a permanent exhibit at the studio's Ghibli Museum, a place we have every intention of visiting should we find ourselves in the area (following our walking tour of "Fast and Furious: Tokyo Drift" filming locations).

    Miyazaki's latest (and ultimately last) film, "The Wind Rises," premiered at Venice to raves (including our own), will screen at the just-kicked-off Toronto International Film Festival and play the New York Film Festival soon. The film will get a theatrical release from Disney sometime next year.

    Really hoping he'll still stay in Studio Ghibli to make damn sure the stuff they put out are up to par with his illustrious back catalogue. What say you, ONTD?

    Vampires have never appeared as cool, cultured, or frankly, human, as they do in Jim Jarmusch’s romantic-comedy drama Only Lovers Left Alive, which screened on Thursday at the Toronto International Film Festival. Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinton star as Adam and Eve, a pair of sophisticated, centuries-old blood suckers who would put any of your mainstream vamps to shame during a round of Double Jeopardy—not just because of their intellects (no offense, Edward) but because they’ve interacted with history’s greats and live to tell the tales, such as how Adam, a musician, once gave Schubert a String Quartet. In one of many self-consciously clever lines in the film, Eve blames the modern-day stigma against vampires on “Shelly, Byron, and those French assholes I used to hang around with.

    Early on, it’s clear that Adam and Eve are gentleman and gentlewoman vampires—the kind who go to the trouble of impersonating surgeons to procure blood instead of gauchely gnawing on people’s necks. (They even drink it out of long-stemmed chalices.) Hipper than their human counterparts, they drive around in vintage cars, lay about in antique silk kimonos, collect rare electric guitars, and play the best blues on vinyl. They’re also in tune enough to be aware of modern-day pop culture; in one scene, for instance, Adam impresses Eve by pointing out Jack White’s childhood home during a car drive.

    Like Jim Jarmusch’s other indie films—Broken Flowers and Mystery Train among them—Only Lovers Left Alive chronicles two loners as they meditate and marinate in their own character development rather than hurried plot points. Adam and Eve happen to be married loners, and when the film picks up, the pair are living on different continents. Eve is in Morocco, where she goes on slow-motion midnight strolls to fetch more blood. (While these sequences could seem self-indulgent if filmed by another director, or if they featured another actress, it’s fascinating to watch Swinton sway in all of her chic etherealness.) Meanwhile, Adam, depressed by the idiocy of the “zombie” humans around him, has moved to a city that seems to have been abandoned by humans altogether: Detroit. He spends his afternoons languishing in the isolation of his windows-drawn existence, until Eve, on an iPhone video chat, decides to pack up her favorite books (The Infinite Jest, Don Quixote) and fly to Detroit (night flights only, please) to once again revive Adam’s spirit.

    In one especially comedic interlude, Eve’s drifter sister, Ava (Mia Wasikowska), whom Adam despises, turns up for an unwelcome visit and annoys the living nightlights out of him. After disclosing that she has taken up permanent residence in Los Angeles, Adam rolls his eyes and deadpans, “Oh great, zombie central.” With Ava eventually out of the house, though, he and Eve can carry on their everlasting journey together. There’s no finale or climax to the film, but Jarmusch’s meandering and refreshingly original take on vampires in the post-Twilight era is satisfying enough.

    Tony Abbott.

    Here's a few aussie celebs reacting to his election on twitter.

    Hugh Jackman tries to find polling booth in Canada

    LIKE a scene from one of his Hollywood action movies, a frantic Hugh Jackman has found himself in a race against time.

    But he isn't trying to save the world.

    He's just trying to vote in Australia's federal election.

    The Sydney-born movie star, who was at the Toronto Film Festival on Friday afternoon (Saturday morning AEST) to promote his new thriller Prisoners, said he was frantically trying to find out if he could cast his ballot in the Canadian city.

    "I have to find a place here to do it,'' a desperate, but smiling, Jackman told AAP.

    "I missed the postal vote date.

    "Do you know where to do it here?''

    When it was suggested the Australian Consulate in Toronto could help, Jackman appeared relieved.

    "I have to duck out to do it,'' Jackman said.

    "Not only do I get fined, there will be an article about me getting fined.''

    Pray for us ONTD...

    TORONTO — There is a scene in 12 Years A Slave that will haunt me for the rest of my life.

    I don’t think I should say anything more about that particular scene, but I will say that 12 Years A Slave— which screened Friday night at the Toronto International Film Festival after its world premiere last week at the Telluride Film Festivalis nothing less than the most emotionally powerful film I have seen in a decade, at least. I was a sobbing wreck during and after the film, in only the way a work of great art can affect you to your marrow. I walked out of the theater with the firm conviction that everyone needs to see it, because it is one of the only American films to deal head-on with slavery; because it is a great work of cinema and storytelling; and because we are all human beings who feel feelings.

    Am I overselling it? Is it over-the-top to say I suspect that director Steve McQueen, star Chiwetel Ejiofor, screenwriter John Ridley, and the movie itself are destined for Oscars, and with due respect to the many fabulous movies that have and will come out this year, no other film can compete? No. It is not. It is that good, and that great, and I really do not mind saying it.

    OK, here is a little more about the movie: Ejiofor plays Solomon Northup, a free black man living in New York who, in 1842, was lured to Washington D.C., and from there kidnapped and sold into slavery in Louisiana. It’s based on a true story — you can read about it here — and if you are paying attention to the title, you already have a sense of how the movie ends. But that does not diminish the film’s hold and power at all.

    McQueen has marshaled a superlative cast, including Benedict Cumberbatch as Northup’s first owner; Paul Giamatti as the slaver who sells him; Alfre Woodard as the well-off mistress of a philandering plantation owner; and Brad Pitt (also one of seven credited producers) as a Canadian abolitionist. But the performances people will want to talk about after the film belong to Ejiofor, Michael Fassbender as Northup’s main, cruel owner Edwin Epps, and newcomer Lupita Nyong’o as Patsey, the slave who receives the lion’s share of Epps’ affections, and cruelty.

    This is just a first draft reaction, and there is so much more to discuss with this film, including Hans Zimmer’s affecting score and Sean Bobbitt’s stunning cinematography, its subtle demolition of long-held tropes about American slavery, and an ending that, were this historical fiction, could feel a bit too convenient. But this is a movie that will lash itself to your memory, and stay there, permanently. There will be plenty of time to talk about it.

    This and the Vulture piece posted earlier today pretty much confirms that this film more than exceeds the hype--directing, acting, writing, everything. And let's not forget the shitload of rave reviews from all the legit film critics. But considering how ridiculously white the majority of the fucking Academy is even with a new black and female president of the AMPAS, we'll just see whether 12YAS will indeed win all them Oscars next year. But what do you think, ONTD?

    You're in Hungary shooting the $150m film Hercules: The Thracian Wars with Dwayne "the Rock" Johnson. Do you enjoy doing blockbusters?

    Well, it used to mean that you got terrifically well paid, but it doesn't mean that any more. Nobody gets terrifically well paid any more, except perhaps the star. But I have nothing against it. You know what you let yourself in for in these things. I can't say that I wouldn't prefer to make small films, basically because I think they are probably more interesting in terms of the material. But every now and again it's quite good to do a big one.

    How's it going?

    With a big film, it's absolutely impossible to say… But of course we all sit around and have a good old moan. But what does an actor do when he gets given a nice part? He moans about it.

    Your new film – More Than Honey, a documentary you narrate about the threat to bees – is at the other end of the scale in terms of size. Is it a subject you feel personally engaged with?

    I do now. Like a lot of people, I didn't realise the threat to bees worldwide and it had never occurred to me the importance of them. But it's something mankind should be concerned about, because it's very important for the planet. We do tend to behave so often in the most cavalier way.

    The film-maker Markus Imhoof has described it as "Chaplin's Modern Times as told by bees". Does it achieve that?

    It does, sort of. It's not a polemic; it's more intelligent than that. As soon as you get the wagging finger, I don't know, for some reason it turns you off. But they ain't doing that.

    Are you comfortable making political and social pronouncements through your work?

    It's often said about actors, "Just because you're an actor, what gives you the right to do that?" But, if you have something you believe very strongly, film is a very powerful medium. You not only can talk about it but you should talk about it. It's almost a duty if you like – there's an old-fashioned word for you.

    You were in a film about the Rwandan genocide, Shooting Dogs. Was that a duty?

    My good friend Michael Caton-Jones called me up and said, "I'd like you to do this film. It's a film that should be made." Anyway, you read it and think, "Oh Christmas! Why did you offer me this? Because I'm now obligated to do it. And I thought I might have fun this summer!" But you can't turn it down and then of course it becomes a passion. Passion, thank God, takes over and the whole thing changes.

    You live in Norfolk now and I understand you're a keen gardener…

    You make it sound frightfully boring.

    Is it quite a change from your Soho days?

    Well, I can still go to Soho, you know. I have a flat in London, but I don't live the same Soho life I might have at one stage, no. It's called progression, I think.

    Do you still paint?

    Absolutely, yes. The most difficult thing about painting is the self-discipline. When I finish a job, I give myself a few days, but then I have to discipline myself quite fiercely if I want to do some painting that's worthwhile. Otherwise, you're just doodling. It's much easier when you're just told what you have to do. It's terrific: "6am pick-up; 7.30am make-up; 8am wardrobe; 8.30 on the set. Right, OK."

    You've acted in films now for 50 years. Are you proud of that?

    I certainly wouldn't go as far as saying proud, but I'm absolutely amazed I've lasted that long. I knew I wanted to act from a very young age – from about nine, really – but I didn't know how to go about it. I had no idea. The world was a much bigger place then. Also you didn't have the communications we have today: now we've all got the internet, we know what's going on everywhere. We didn't then. We'd only just got used to the typewriter.

    You've made a lot of films in that time – around 140. Any regrets?

    I'm very much of the opinion that to work is better than not to work. There are others who'd say, "No, wait around for the right thing" – and they will finish up a purer animal than me. For example, Danny Day-Lewis will only do what he thinks is right. I couldn't wait that long between films. He's wonderful Danny, but our philosophy is different in that sense. Of course, I don't do everything by any means: I do turn lots of stuff down, because it's absolute crap. But I usually find something interesting enough to do.

    It's your 50th year in the business and you are about to appear as the Doctor in the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who. Both of you have had lots of reinventions. Is there a neat link there?

    I'd never thought of that, but let's use it! Oh yes, there's a huge link definitely. But I had no idea that Doctor Who had got so huge; I just thought, "Brilliant, I'll be a Doctor!" I was suddenly – what do they call it? You start "trending". This is all new to me!

    Is it a relief you can talk about your role, now that the costume designer let slip to the Prince of Wales that you play a "dark Doctor"?

    Of course you have to remember that the Doctors are all one person, so I'm not outside of that. I can't talk about it, but I will say I was really impressed when I did it. Both the previous doctors – Matt Smith and David Tennant – boy, are they good at it. Whoa-wee! They are so quick, and there's a huge amount of learning and no time to learn it in. All that fake scientific nonsense. Terribly difficult to learn.

    Have you met the Whovians?

    I've done a couple of conferences where you sit and sign autographs for people and then you have photographs taken with them and a lot of them all dressed up in alien suits or Doctor Who whatevers. I was terrified of doing it because I thought they'd all be loonies, but they are absolutely, totally charming as anything. It's great fun. I'm not saying it's the healthiest thing – I don't know whether it is or isn't – but they are very charming.

    After starring as the villain of ‘Thor’ and ‘The Avengers,’ Tom Hiddleston opted to play a sexy rocker-vampire opposite Tilda Swinton in Jim Jarmusch’s vampire love story, ‘Only Lovers Left Alive.’ He sat down with Marlow Stern of The Daily Beast at TIFF to discuss the movie, his advice for new ‘Avengers’ villain James Spader, and road to stardom.

    Tom Hiddleston is nothing if not versatile. He’s tackled Shakespeare, appearing as Cassio in an acclaimed stage version of Othello opposite Chiwetel Ejiofor; portrayed writer F. Scott Fitzgerald in Woody Allen’s Midnight in Paris; took the role of a kind soldier in Steven Spielberg’s War Horse; and, last but not least, inhabited the villainous Loki in Thor and its upcoming sequel, Thor: The Dark World, as well as The Avengers, winning Best Villain at the MTV Movie Awards for the latter.

    The 32-year-old Brit’s latest role sees him switch gears once more, portraying a tormented, oft-shirtless rocker-vampire in Jim Jarmusch’s Only Lovers Left Alive. Adam (Hiddleston) is a suicidal vampire living in Detroit, which is now a desolate wasteland, where he produces moody music for his own consumption. His centuries-old lover, Eve (Tilda Swinton), lives out in Tangiers, and has a more positive outlook on the undead life. When Eve pays Adam a visit, his melancholy dissipates.

    Hiddleston, a genial fellow, looks mighty dapper in a bespoke three-piece suit. He sat down with The Daily Beast at TIFF to discuss his myriad projects.

    Were you like, “OK, I get to play a rocker/vampire. You don’t even need to show me the script. I’m in.”

    [Laughs] Honestly, everything. I met Jim Jarmusch in November 2011 and I’d just finished shooting Avengers. I was doing press for War Horse, and was about to start The Hollow Crown for the BBC and PBS. In this swirl of superheroes and soldiers and Shakespeare, here was one of the great American indie auteurs, and we sat, and he pitched it to me. He said, “This is a love story about two old souls who are refined, sophisticated, delicate, and in danger. They’re very poetic, and it will be you and Tilda Swinton, and you’re a musician and she’s a bohemian… and by the way, you’re vampires.” It was the easiest “yes” in the world. And I’d always wanted to make a love story, because I’ve never made one like this, which is basically a love song.

    Had you ever fantasized about being a rock star?

    [Laughs] I’m not a good enough musician, honestly. When I was a teenager, I played the guitar and the piano, and played sports, and I acted, but acting was the thing that I kept wanting to do most. But I’ve always loved music. And Jim and I, for months on end, talked about music, his friends Tom Waits and Iggy Pop, Mick Jagger in his early days in Nick Roeg’s Performance

    Back to all the dabbling as a youngster—why did you choose acting over sports and music?

    I think it offered the most complete experience for me to be creative, and probably suited my talents, in a way. Acting, for me, is so many things. I love entertaining, but there’s an intellectual curiosity that I get to satiate there, and there’s a great research element where you’re learning all the time about people, experiences, literature, and art, as well as meeting new people. Acting is a total art form because it doesn’t just demand that you bring your brain to bear on the material, it demands that you bring your body, and your heart, and often your brain can get in the way. I remember a specific time in my early-to-mid teens in a cinema where I believed being an actor was a very noble thing. The actors and directors I was watching showed me different things about the world; about life. Spielberg, Gilliam, Tarantino, Nanni Moretti. When I was a teenager, those were the people making exciting work. I just wanted to be a part of this amazing community of people.

    Is it intimidating to work with vampire Tilda Swinton?

    She’s not. She is one of the most free-spirited people I’ve ever worked with. There’s a very infectious rebelliousness of spirit about her. She’s not a conventional actress, and never has been, and I don’t think she’s ever wanted to be. It all feels like an extension of herself, or her curiosity, in a way. She had been working on this with Jim for eight years before I came on.

    But it must have been a little intimidating to shoot that scene where you two are lying on the bed naked staring at each other. It reminded me of the recent MoMA demonstration she did, where she rested in a transparent box.

    Not at all! I remember at the time, she said, “This is who we are… we’re all born this way.” There was no self-consciousness or vanity to it.

    Adam and Eve are opposites, but very much in love. Adam is a tortured soul that feels cursed by his “affliction,” while Eve sees the bright side to every situation.

    So much of our definition of love, as a human race, is founded upon the rock of the idea of mortality—the idea that we know we’re going to die. So, you want to find someone to share your life with because you know it’s short. But what if your life was not short? What if it was eternal? How would that change the way that you love, and the way that you see and accept your lover?

    Not every actor can take on such a wide variety of roles, going from Shakespeare to winning MTV Video Movie Awards as a supervillain, to a rocker-vampire.

    The thing is: I love so many different types of films. Honestly, four years ago on a Friday night, I went to see The Proposal, the romantic comedy with Ryan Reynolds and Sandra Bullock, which I loved, and on the next night, I went with a different friend to see Antichrist. I couldn’t tell you on Sunday morning which one I enjoyed more. I genuinely enjoyed them both for what they were. I think to have a varied palate is good. It keeps you sharp.

    And you’ve got Thor: The Dark World coming out soon.

    What’s interesting is it’s a new dynamic. In Thor, I was the antihero who turned into a villain; in Avengers, I’m the out-and-out bad guy; and in Thor: The Dark World, Malekith, played by Christopher Eccleston, is the villain, so I occupy a unique position because I’m sort of an ally.

    Did Spader come to you with any questions about Avengers?

    No, James Spader doesn’t need my advice! He’s a great actor and he’ll do a wonderful job.

    You could just ask him about spanking, or something.

    [Laughs] Yeah, I’ll say, “Don’t spank the Hulk!

    JFC why are you so consistently fucking perfect Hiddles?! And I seriously need you and Kween Tilda to procreate and make ridiculously beautiful children that will put other celebrity kids to absolute shame.

    Azealia Banks' Saturday-morning Twitter rant about Syria makes Madonna's recent remarks look tame. The 22-year-old rapper unleashed a series of statements about the ongoing crisis, including the assertion that "America will never have another black president" if Obama invades the Asian nation.

    Banks is no stranger to controversial Twitter activity, having recently sparked a mild feud with Lady Gaga after the "Applause" signer's MTV Video Music Awards performance. She also called Perez Hilton a "faggot" earlier this year. Now her comments on Syria have prompted an array of responses on Twitter. Take a look at what the 22-year-old rapper had to say.

    So there's no PROOF the Syrian gov used chemical weapons but the US, France, Britain & Germany have 'high confidence' they did....
    — AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 7, 2013

    Obama threatens Syria, then Russia and Iran threaten to counter-attack if U.S or Israel attacks Syria.... (Am I following?)
    — AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 7, 2013

    IF they did use weapons, America can't let such a worldly crime go unpunished but now that Russia & Iran are promising to be involved.....
    — AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 7, 2013

    And are kinda trying to (keyword:trying, {sort of} ) to punk Obama.. I really hope it doesn't turn into some really diabolical ego race.
    — AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 7, 2013

    America should mind it's business this time.
    — AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 7, 2013

    For the World's Sake....
    — AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 7, 2013

    World War's 3-10 are INEVITABLE... But can't we just wait until AFTER I drop my album in January ? #reallywannabealiveforthat
    — AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 7, 2013

    And FORREAL, Obama is like the black American superman. He can't ruin the end of his presidency with this.
    — AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 7, 2013

    I THINK: If Obama invades Syria, America will never have another black president.
    — AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 7, 2013

    The stuck up academics & crazy christian rightwing folk will find some clever crafty way to tie obamas blackness into cheapening his legacy.
    — AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 7, 2013

    I see it now.
    — AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 7, 2013

    America loves sensationalism.
    — AZEALIA BANKS (@AZEALIABANKS) September 7, 2013

    My tweets about Obamas legacy and the situation in Syria are TWO SEPARATE THOUGHTS...... In case it's confusing.

    Nine Inch Nails, Hesitation Marks (Sept. 3)
    Trent Reznor emerges from NIN retirement with an Oscar (for scoring 2010's The Social Network) and a newly energized — but still gratifyingly grown-up goth — album and tour.

    The 1975, The 1975 (Sept. 3)
    The boys' grunge-chic look makes you think they should be called the 1991, but it's the songs that distill three decades of angular radio anthems into one immensely hooky debut.

    Avicii, True (Sept. 3)
    The Swedish club king goes loco with guests like Nile Rodgers and country singer Mac Davis. So far, so huge: The strummy ''Wake Me Up'' is an international smash.

    Janelle Monáe, The Electric Lady (Sept. 10)
    Friends like Prince, Miguel, and Erykah Badu help the eccentric songstress scale up on her second album.

    2 Chainz, B.O.A.T.S. II: Me Time (Sept. 10)
    The latest from Atlanta's best-accessorized rapper/Instagram food-porn enthusiast will include a recipe for each track, so come hungry.

    Keith Urban, Fuse (Sept. 10)
    The Idol judge citifies his sound, enlisting producers like Butch Walker (Pink) and Nathan Chapman (Taylor Swift), and even adding some electronic touches.

    The Weeknd, Kiss Land (Sept. 10)
    Drake pal Abel Tesfaye gets spooky, working scary-movie sounds into his acclaimed R&B atmospherics.

    Drake, Nothing Was the Same (Sept. 17)
    Not even NAFTA can compel the Toronto native to share the details of his third studio album. Drizzy has been as tight-lipped as ever about his work, though he did reveal that Whitney Houston and Curtis Mayfield are both sampled on the record, and has confessed, ''It's my story...I'm trying to get back to that kid in the basement.'' Started from the bottom, indeed.

    Kings of Leon, Mechanical Bull (Sept. 24)
    It's not as long as it used to be, but the Tennessee band of brothers (and cousins) let their hair down again on their sixth effort.

    Icona Pop, This Is... (Sept. 24)
    Are there more car-crash-worthy anthems like ''I Love It'' on their full-length debut? Only these '90s bitches know for sure

    Chvrches, The Bones of What You Believe (Sept. 24)
    The Scottish trio have already won over indie blogs — if not the vowel police — with their airy synth-pop hit ''Recover.''

    Justin Timberlake, The 20/20 Experience — 2 of 2 (Sept. 30)
    Forget the night, dude's taking back the year: The musical offensive that JT launched back in the spring will continue when he drops the second half of the 20/20 package. Other than the retro, Michael Jackson-sweatin' lead single, Part 2 promises outtakes from the first installment, new stuff from more recent sessions, and a ''special surprise.'' Here's hoping it's an *NSYNC reunion track!

    Haim, Days Are Gone (Sept. 30)
    Three L.A. siblings blend breezy Laurel Canyon rock with radio-pop production and a Roc Nation bankroll. Pencil them in to headline Coachella 2015.

    Miley Cyrus, Bangerz (Oct. 8)
    ''We Can't Stop'' is a smash, so we can't stop thinking there's more where that came from, especially with Pharrell's production help.

    Pearl Jam, Lightning Bolt (Oct. 15)
    The flannel gods deliver punk-surf agitation on their 10th studio album. It's not all raging against the machine, though; look for some epic ballads that recall their Vs.-era heyday.

    The Avett Brothers, Magpie and the Dandelion (Oct. 15)
    Homier than Mumford, less suspendered than the Lumineers, these North Carolina boys bring more pretty, twangy folk on their eighth studio release.

    Katy Perry, Prism (Oct. 22)
    The California Gurl reteams with high-gloss hitmakers Max Martin and Dr. Luke, and also brings the edgier Diplo into the fold. New Katy? No problem!

    Arcade Fire, Reflektor (Oct. 29)
    The Canadian art-rockers' last record won them the Album of the Year Grammy. Now they're back, with LCD Soundsystem mastermind James Murphy handling partial production duties.

    Eminem, MMLP2 (Nov. 5)
    Slim Shady returns for his eighth album, featuring Dr. Dre, Kanye West mentor No I.D., and a whole lot more of his trademark underdog bluster.

    M.I.A., Matangi (Nov. 5)
    You don't have to agree with her politics to love multiculti block-rockers like ''Bad Girls''— she might even like it better that way.

    Lady Gaga, ARTPOP (Nov. 11)
    It's easy to forget that the multi-platform media queen's main gig is, you know, music. But she promises that her fourth effort is ''a true glam electronic album.'' In other words, it won't be boring.

    Future, Honest (Nov. 26)
    This Atlanta rapper's ultra-mellow flow has saturated the charts via hits by the likes of Lil Wayne, but his latest proves that he's earned a spot at center stage.


    Who are you looking forward to?

    Somebody swiped Posh's wheels! Victoria Beckham revealed via Twitter that her bicycle was stolen in New York City this week.

    "So I won't be riding home tonight then! x vb," she tweeted on Sept. 5. The singer turned fashion designer posted a picture of just one wheel of the bike still attached to a pole that the culprit decided to leave behind on a city sidewalk.

    The 39-year-old mother of four continued her search the next day. "Searching for the missing bike! X vb," she captioned, alongside a picture of a city police car.

    Riding her bike is just another way the former Spice Girl has been trying to keep in shape. In early August, she flashed a rare smile during a hike near the Hollywood sign. "So good to be back in LA, and hiking, who knew?" she wrote at the time. Victoria's husband, David Beckham, and their kids -- sons Brooklyn, 14, Romeo, 10, Cruz, 8, and daughter Harper, 21 months -- recently moved back to LA after spending several months in London since Christmas.

    Though a slight bump in the road, Beckham has otherwise been keeping busy in NYC for a very special reason the past couple of days -- New York Fashion Week, where she's set to showcase her spring 2014 collections; her Victoria Beckham line on Sunday, Sept. 8, and her Victoria, Victoria Beckham collection on Tuesday, Sept. 10.

    ONTD, have you ever had a car/bike/scooter stolen?
