    Lays launched the “Do Us a Flavor” campaign in 2012 to celebrate their 75th anniversary. Fans were asked to send in their dream ideas for a chip flavor and the three finalists went into production for a limited time before a winner was declared. Last year’s finalists included Sriracha, Chicken and Waffles, and the eventual — and much-debated — victor, Cheesy Garlic Bread.

    This year’s follow-up competition has been expanded to four limited-edition, fan-developed favors: Cappuccino, Mango Salsa, Wasabi Ginger, and Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese. The four finalists are available for purchase through October 18 and Lays encourages testers to vote for their favorite on at dousaflavor.com, where you can also read the riveting stories behind each flavor’s inspiration. (Spoiler: It’s not that riveting.)

    We never say “no” to quirky snack foods at Boston.com, so we decided to pop open a few bags and give them a try. Below are our thoughts.

    Mango Salsa:

    Sara: I’ve had Yorkshire Pudding flavored chips and Lamb and Mint flavored chips so I thought I could handle anything, but these were all just horrible. Mango salsa tasted like Trix. This was a sad day. I’m going home now.

    Shannon: I agree with what Sara said. Mango salsa tasted like it was dusted with old fruity pebbles or some other stale children’s cereal. Weird after taste.

    Rattey: I saved the Mango for last. Mistake. Trix NAILS it. I was trying to think of what they tasted like. I had such high hopes because I love mango salsa. I was highly disappointed, and yes… they taste exactly like Trix. I once felt really sad after I ate a peanut butter hamburger. Like actually melancholic. I think it was chemical. Lesson: don’t mix meat and peanut butter.

    Wasabi Ginger

    Sanjay: My favorite of the batch. Had a salty taste and a really good after taste. Didn’t knock your sinuses out like normal wasabi.

    Zeninjor: Ugh, where to begin. I should have known I wouldn’t like the wasabi ginger because I hate wasabi. I love ginger though.

    Denali: The Wasabi Ginger chips taste like you took a packet of ramen noodle seasoning and poured it over the classic lays. That’s totally something I would do though so Wasabi Ginger has my vote.


    Ryan: Cappuccino tastes like the inside of a Dunkin’ Donuts. [OP: screaming]

    Shannon: Yes. But not in a good way.. like the dirt on the floor of a Dunkin.

    Angela: No one said it better than Ryan about the Cappuccino chips. They were cereal-esque and tasted like the fake cappuccino that I used to get out of a Cumberland Farms machine in high school.

    Laura: Cappuccino tastes as brackish as it looks.

    Cheddar Bacon Mac & Cheese

    Denali: This is the only flavor I reached for seconds. I don’t know if that’s because they’re good or if I’m just really hungry, but I definitely didn’t reach for seconds of Cappuccino.

    Shannon: Same here, it was mostly cheesy and a little smoky. Pretty good, but still not mac and cheese.

    Rattey: Wait, what? There was a Bacon Mac & Cheese one? Where the hell was I?

    Zeninjor: I was hit with an overwhelming bacon flavor then an overwhelming cheese flavor. It was just ok.


    I bought the Wasabi and Cappuccino chips tonight cause I'm a sucker.  They didn't have the Bacon Mac and Cheese. : [

    Mariah Carey has hired a new manager after parting ways with longtime collaborator Jermaine Dupri.

    The “Hero” hit maker hired her super-producer pal as her manager last autumn, but after less than a year in his new role, Dupri is stepping down from the position.

    A statement released by Dupri reads: “I’m a very hands-on person when it comes to my work. I put my all into every project. But when I’m not allowed to do what I do, then I know it’s time for me to move on. Mariah and I enjoy working together and will continue to make great music together in the future.”

    Carey hired Dupri in the middle of production of her 14th studio album, “Me. I Am Mariah… The Elusive Chanteuse,” which she had been working on for the past two years.

    The record was finally released in May, but had a disappointing debut in the U.S. selling just 58,000 copies in the first week.

    Carey had previously been managed by music veteran and former “American Idol” judge Randy Jackson

    She has now reportedly hired Def Jam Recordings president Kevin Liles, who also manages Jay Z and Ludacris, to oversee her career, according to Billboard Magazine.



    now that his homes are no longer in foreclosure, this generous queen is actually going to get a real manager

    Mess. Early 00's R&B post?

    “Guardians of the Galaxy” pushed Walt Disney Studios over the $1 billion mark domestically this week.

    Overseas, Disney’s $4 billion purchase of Marvel has continued to reap dividends, with the film arm hitting $2 billion in international ticket sales. The results mean that Disney has now surpassed Warner Bros. as the second-highest studio in terms of market share. It trails only 20th Century Fox, which is having a year for its record books with “X-Men: Days of Future Past,” “The Fault in Our Stars” and “Dawn of the Planet of the Apes.”

    Since opening last weekend, “Guardians” has racked up $219.3 million globally. Other Disney hits include “Captain America: The Winter Solder” ($713.6 million worldwide) and “Maleficent” ($727.9 million worldwide).

    This is the ninth consecutive year that Disney has crossed $1 billion domestically and the fifth year in a row it has passed $2 billion. Disney said it’s the fastest it has reached those numbers.

    The studio managed to hit these lofty heights without a release from one of its best-performing brands, Pixar. “The Good Dinosaur” was originally slated to debut this summer, but production delays prompted Pixar to push it back into 2015. Another animated hit picked up the slack. Disney’s “Frozen” was released in the winter of 2013, but earned a big chunk of its $1.27 billion worldwide haul this year.

    Indio Downey, son of actor Robert Downey Jr., has been charged with felony drug possession after a California cop allegedly saw him take a brazen hit from a cocaine pipe in broad daylight.

    Indio Downey, 20, was charged with one felony count of cocaine possession and one misdemeanor count of possessing a smoking device, a spokesman for the Los Angeles County District Attorney told the Daily News Thursday.

    Downey, whose dad famously battled addiction before making a huge Hollywood comeback in blockbusters that included “Iron Man” and “The Avengers,” is due for arraignment Aug. 29, prosecutors said.

    He was arrested at 2:20 p.m. on June 29 by a Los Angeles County Sheriff's deputy who spotted the alleged drug use near the busy intersection of La Cienega and Santa Monica Blvds. in West Hollywood. “That was the reason for the stop. He was the front-seat passenger.”“The deputy drove up near him and saw him using a cocaine pipe,” Sgt. Dave Valentine previously told The News.

    Downey, a first-time offender, was booked for coke possession and released hours later on $10,000 bail.

    “Also, there is a lot of family support and understanding, and we’re all determined to rally behind him and help him become the man he’s capable of being,” he added. “Unfortunately, there’s a genetic component to addiction and Indio has likely inherited it,” Robert Downey Jr. said in a statement to The News.

    “We’re grateful to the Sheriff’s department for their intervention, and believe Indio can be another recovery success story instead of a cautionary tale.”

    This must be incredibly painful for their family, especially RDJ. Drug/Rehab gone bad stories make me so sad. :(

    Edit: ICYMI, Indio Downey was actually committed to Rehab in 2013 for Pills. In June 2014, he was arrested for possession of Cocaine.

    Two men face charges including attempted murder after officials say they attacked a housemate and tried to forcibly remove a tattoo from his arm. Wicomico County Sheriff Mike Lewis said Wednesday that the 31-year-old victim of Monday's attack had his right arm amputated below the elbow and is in critical condition.

    Investigators say 33-year-old Paul Martin Hurst of Hebron and 35-year-old Carey Lee Edwards of Williamsburg, Virginia, savagely beat the victim, then tried to carve and burn a tattoo from his arm. A judge has ordered them held without bond.

    Lewis says all three men are affiliated with the Juggalos, a fan base of the rap-metal duo Insane Clown Posse that the FBI has described as ganglike.Lewis says the suspects thought the victim disrespected the group and didn't deserve the tattoo.

    After the Insane Clown Posse sued the Department of Justice and the Federal Bureau of Investigations for designating the Juggalos as a "loosely organized hybrid gang," and the suit was subsequently dismissed, the rap-metal duo recently appealed the case.

    In a lawsuit, ICP members Violent J (Joseph Bruce) and Shaggy 2 Dope (Joey Utsler) alleged that the Juggalos had been victimized by local police for wearing jewelry or tattoos with the group's symbol following a 2011 FBI report that those who identify as Juggalos have committed assaults and vandalism, and a "small number" of them have engaged in more serious crimes.

    ATTENTION. It is critical that you pay attention at this time!

    Guardians Of The Galaxy was stuffed to the gills with aliens, side characters and creatures. But there was one character that we didn't see on screen: Nova — a character so hotly anticipated folks were certain Nathan Fillion was secretly cast as this strong-jawed space cop. He wasn't, but here's what Nova could have looked like.

    (click to enlarge)

    Cinemablend has a picture from the Guardians Of The Galaxy: The Art Of The Movie art book (which is LOADED with amazing GOTG art) of the never before seen, much-hyped character Nova. For those of you unaware, the Nova Corps are the space cops of the Marvel cosmic comic book world. Nova is basically the prime guy, numero uno [... by default...], and gets to do a lot of awesome stuff. He's also been killing it in the comics lately (so I hear) [.........] All signs point to a Nova appearance somewhere down the MCU road. And this is what he may turn up wearing.

    Some morning DJs in Detroit were talking about the local shoot of Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice* and disparaging Aquaman. As we've told you before, Aquaman is going to be in the movie and he's going to be played by Jason Momoa, and he's going to be getting set up as a member of the Justice League. That's a secret, officially, but that didn't stop Snyder from calling in to the radio show to stand by his Aquaman.

    Says Zack: "Aquaman has some cool abilities. I think people are like, “What, does he talk to animals or fish?” That’s what people think. The cool thing with Aquaman is that his trident, it could cut the flesh of Superman if they came in contact - that’s in the canon. He’s super strong because he can exist at these depths. Not to say he’s in my movie or anything like that, but I’m just saying he has the potential to be pretty badass."

    I actually did not know that about the trident. I guess that means the trident is magic (Superman is crazy susceptible to magic), and that Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice* is introducing magic into the DC movieverse. I mean, why else bother bringing that up?

    * this is actually the title of the movie, not just some running gag.

    There's a new British invasion on the Hot 100.
    And, an Australian Invasion. A Canadian, Norwegian and Scottish one, too.

    The upper ranks of the Hot 100 of late have belonged to acts from outside the U.S., from Canada (MAGIC!'s "Rude") and Australia (Iggy Azalea's "Fancy," Sia's "Chandelier") to England (Sam Smith's "Stay With Me," Disclosure's "Latch," featuring Smith), Norway (Nico & Vinz's "Am I Wrong") and Scotland (Calvin Harris'"Summer").

    The influx of foreign talent follows breakthroughs by Lorde (New Zealand) last year, Gotye (Belgium) in 2012 and Adele (England) in 2011.

    Meanwhile, Australia's 5 Seconds of Summer just blasted onto the Billboard 200 at No. 1 with a hefty 259,000 first-week copies sold of their debut album, according to Nielsen SoundScan (and join English/Irish quintet One Direction in the battle for boy-band supremacy, both in the U.S. and worldwide).

    Such non-domestic chart dominance stands in stark contrast to a year ago. By the numbers: seven of the lead acts in the Aug. 9, 2014 Hot 100's top 10 are foreign. A year ago, only 2.5 were. (Why a .5? Robin Thicke was born in Los Angeles but has dual American/Canadian citizenship.)

    Five years ago (on the Aug. 8, 2009 Hot 100), the gap was even greater, as just one non-American-born act populated the top 10: Canada's Drake. (Also in that top 10: Sean Kingston. Although born in Miami, he moved to his namesake Kingston, Jamaica as a child.)

    In a roundtable discussion (via email) with U.S. record label executives and radio programmers, certain factors pinpoint why the Hot 100 has become the domain of acts from other countries.

    Let's look at three key reasons why.


    Most simply, songs that react the best among audiences will always find their way onto playlists. Right now, the biggest hits happen to come from acts beyond U.S. borders.

    "Great songs win," says Erik Bradley, assistant program director/music director at CBS Radio's top 40 WBBM Chicago. "And, all these hits -- 'Rude,''Fancy,' [British-born] Charli XCX's 'Boom Clap' -- are incredible songs."

    Going hand-in-hand with what infuses top 40 playlists, since its inception more than a half-century ago, the format has prided itself on breaking new music, often from new artists. In summer 2014, the biggest new hits belong not only to artists, but rookies, especially, hailing from outside the country.

    "Discovering new artists is one of the many things that keeps radio great," says Tommy Chuck, program director of Clear Channel Media and Entertainment-owned top 40 WFLZ Tampa, Fla.

    "Azalea and Smith were chosen as Clear Channel [multi-platform new artist exposure program] 'On the Verge' artists months ago. We're proud to have championed them."

    Meanwhile, the bevy of foreign-born hits coincides with a relative lull in releases from American top 40 standbys.

    "A lack of core artists can make room for new artists," notes Jeremy Rice, PD of Cox top 40 WBLI Long Island, N.Y. "Rihanna is in between albums rights now. So is Bruno Mars. Lady Gaga is not as hot as she was. And, Beyonce, as huge as she is, is not having huge top 40 hits from her latest album."

    "This opens up the chart, and I think it's great," Rice says. "Right now, Sam Smith has the best shot of becoming a core artist and we always need new core artists."

    By far, the biggest reason cited for the current wave of worldwide hits working in the U.S. is technology. The way we now consume music, industry insiders say, is clearly the main catalyst.

    Prior eras have brought foreign acts to U.S. shores (and airwaves), most famously starting with Beatlemania 50 years ago. A second British invasion followed in the '80s, led by new wave/pop acts. (The Beatles were simply an unstoppable force whose U.S. success was inevitable; two decades later, such U.K. acts as Duran Duran, Culture Club and Wham! helped American music fans transition from the disco-dominant '70s.)

    Now, the reach of YouTube and social media are shaping sounds like never before.

    Says Def Jam executive vp of promotion Rick Sackheim, "America's consumption of music, especially new, cutting-edge artists and songs, has never been stronger. Everyone wants to 'discover' the next 'cool' thing. Foreign acts have always crossed into American culture once their fame gets to the point that they become undeniable. The difference today is that music discovery no longer takes months. Now, it can literally take minutes.

    "Artists like [Def Jam's Azalea] have built up fan bases by releasing music and dropping videos and other clips on their social media sites," Sackheim says.

    "I think labels have become better at the overall set-up of music from outside the U.S.," adds RCA executive vp Joe Riccitelli. "A constant flow of new [social media] content really helps stoke the fires."

    Technology may not be aiding only audiences. Artists themselves benefit from modern tools, and no longer need to be near music meccas to produce hit songs, posits Interscope senior VP of promotion Chris Lopes. "Access to laptops and new software levels the playing field for talented artists everywhere to record quality music."

    Ultimately, says Lopes, labels have better access to acts abroad, which has changed their A&R practices. "Music is shared and discovered differently now. It crosses borders and boundaries faster and more easily. As a result, fans hear new music immediately, labels cast a wider net to scour for talent and radio is more open to more kinds of music, like EDM from Disclosure."

    "We've had success with international artists for as long as I've been at Interscope, 16 years, but music is clearly weighted more toward foreign hits now," Lopes says. "For us, in the last couple years, Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Call Me Maybe' blew up in the U.S. after it was a hit in Canada, driven by YouTube views and Justin Bieber's social media push.

    "Now, 'Latch' is a U.S. hit, but it had 25 million [YouTube] views before we impacted radio. Top 40's audience was more familiar and passionate about the song than many radio programmers initially realized."

    It's fitting, then, that even one of the biggest current hits by an American act, Maroon 5, is called … "Maps."

    "The digital age has changed our mindsets, Rice says. "Australia" -- and England, Norway, Scotland and other foreign countries -- "isn't really that far away anymore."

    Mark Ruffalo, Michael Keaton, Rachel McAdams and Stanley Tucci are in advanced talks to board the Catholic Church sex abuse scandal film Spotlight.

    The ripped-from-the-headlines drama chronicles the Catholic Church's decades-long cover-up of its pedophile priests in Massachusetts that came to light thanks to a yearlong investigation by The Boston Globe. Tom McCarthy (Win Win) is directing. Ruffalo and McAdams would play reporters. Insiders say McAdams' part is a supporting role.

    The movie project tells of how the Globe's "Spotlight Team" reporters spent a year interviewing victims and reviewing thousands of pages of documents and discovered years of cover-ups by Church leadership. Their reporting eventually led to the resignation of Cardinal Bernard Law, who had hidden years of serial abuse by other priests, and opened the floodgates to revelations of molestation and cover-ups worldwide that still reverberate today.

    Participant Media is financing the film, which is being produced by Michael Sugar and Steve Golin of Anonymous Content and Rocklin/Faust's Nicole Rocklin and Blye Faust. Open Road will distribute in the United States. eOne is taking international sales rights and will distribute in its territories. The then-untitled film had been set up at DreamWorks, but the studio quietly exited the project last year. Multiple suitors are said to be vying for the potentially controversial title. Josh Singer wrote the Black List script.

    The Globe team won the 2003 Pulitzer Prize for Public Service "for its courageous, comprehensive coverage of sexual abuse by priests, an effort that pierced secrecy; stirred local, national and international reaction; and produced changes in the Roman Catholic Church."

    David Mizner is serving as a consultant and associate producer, while Jonathan King and Jeff Skoll are executive producing.

  • In the good ol’ days of film magazine journalism, you could always rely on an actress’ hairdresser and make-up man to dish out the real dirt on her, before ‘press-release journalism’ became the way. The Hindi film heroine’s staff is still possibly the most reliable source for information related to the diva. And one top actress’ team has reportedly been high-fiving one another lately over having figured out her dirty little secret. The boyfriend she’s been dangling around is very likely just a cover for the married actor she’s been having a fling with over the last several months.

    The reason few people caught on until now is that the male actor himself has been involved in a controversy that was the focus of all attention; allowing both him and his part-time squeeze to fly below the radar with their own shenanigans.


    Popular guesses: Anushka Sharma (bf: Virat) and Aamir Khan, costars in the upcoming film PK (controversy: PK nude poster, but it's very recent) / Katrina Kaif (bf: Ranbir Kapoor) and Hrithik Roshan, costars in upcoming Bang Bang (controversy: Hrithik's messy separation)
    Who do you think it is??

    Gay sport and entertainment icons will kick off the 9th Gay Games, held in Cleveland, Ohio.

    Former pop star Lance Bass and girl group Pointer Sisters will be joined by gay former Olympic diver Greg Louganis on 9 August to welcome thousands of athletes and supporters to what is considered one of the most inclusive sports & cultural festivals in the world.

    In a series of competitions held until 17 August, athletes will compete in everything from diving, cycling, bowling, bodybuilding, martial arts and more.

    The Gay Games originally launched in 1982 as a ‘vehicle of change,’ according to founder Dr Tom Waddell, to challenge homophobia in sport and provide a platform for LGBTI athletes.

    'It’s not about how many medals someone wins, equality in sports is about allowing people to play in inclusive and welcoming environments,' said Steve Sokany, co-chair of the 2014 Gay Games in a statement.

    The 2014 Gay Games count with the sponsorship and support of United Airlines and Wells Fargo bank, and a partnership with Gay and Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation (GLAAD) to help with outreach and asking more leagues to support the Gay Games.

    This year’s games are marked by a provocative ad campaign, where the phrase 'That’s So Gay' is reclaimed in a positive connotation referring to an athlete’s abilities.

O'Brien jumps on the opportunity to bring King back through the magic of pot brownies, and it works much faster than expected.

    "This is how I get my day started, everyday. - MR. MY LIFE IS THE SH*T www.themoneyteam.com  Download @shots"

    According to Forbes, Floyd Mayweather has been the highest-paid athlete in the world two of the last three years. As such, Money likes to flaunt his wealth on social media (the boxing superstar is notorious for bragging about his winning sports wagers). The 37-year-old has been especially boastful on Instagram, where he can offer up videos in 15-second increments of just how fabulous his life is. But one clip Mayweather posted Thursday may take the cake for excess.

    In it, the reigning WBC welterweight champion is given a sponge bath by a female assistant while brushing his teeth. Part of the caption reads, "This is how I start my day, everyday" (followed by a hilarious-yet-not-suitable-for-print-in-this-space nickname for himself that can be seen here). The song that plays over the video is Guy's "I Like", which was released in 1989 and was also on the soundtrack for the 2000 film "Love & Basketball." The fighter's luxurious bath is reminiscent of Prince Akeem's, the fictitous character portrayed by Eddie Murphy, in the opening sequence of 1988's "Coming to America."

    "Bad Girls Club" star Natalie Nunn's foot was savagely bitten during a fight with co-star Alyssa "Redd" Carswell ... and the injury was so severe, medics thought she'd been attacked by an animal.

    Eyewitnesses tell TMZ ... Natalie and "Redd" were shooting a scene for "BGC 13" May 15th when they got into a violent confrontation ... and during the fight, "Redd" chomped down on Nunn's foot ... tearing the flesh away.

    Nunn was taken to a hospital ... where she filed a battery report. Law enforcement sources tell us ... police investigated and turned it over to the L.A. City Attorney -- who rejected it based on insufficient evidence.

    We don't know if prosecutors looked at any of the show footage. We know cameras WERE rolling during the fight ... and the footage will air on an upcoming episode.

    They're called bad girls for a reason.

    guess she didn't have any at the house
