Kelly Osbourne now boasts a shocking inking on the side of her head after a trip to a tattoo parlour on Saturday (28Jun14).
The TV presenter has been sporting a partly-shaved hairstyle this month (Jun14) and she choose to get a new design inked on the bald side of her head.
She wrote in a post on Twitter.com, "#oops what did I do tonight? (sic)", before apologising to her parents Sharon and Ozzy Osbourne, adding: "Sorry mum and dad but I love it!"
She also posted a picture of herself lying on a chair at the Shamrock Social Club tattoo parlour in Los Angeles with the word 'stories...' etched on her head.
Sharon Stone has slammed a "salacious" and "unkind" report suggesting she has embarked on a new romance with Antonio Banderas following his split from her close pal Melanie Griffith.
The Hollywood couple, which had been dogged by break-up claims for years, announced its 18-year marriage was over earlier this month (Jun14), when Griffith filed for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences. Just days later, sources told editors at Britain's Grazia magazine the Basic Instinct beauty has grown "closer than ever" to Banderas, suggesting the two friends were allegedly "making plans for a getaway together in July".
However, Stone has fired off a statement blasting the claims and she has attacked Grazia reporters for spreading lies. A statement issued to the DailyMail.co.uk reads: "Antonio is a brother to me and Melanie has been with me for each and every birth of my three children. "They are my family. I find this salacious, unkind, unfounded reporting to be the typical pretense of what passes as 'journalism' today."
Stone isn't the only one who has been falsely linked to the newly-single Banderas - Bollywood beauty Mallika Sherawat has also dismissed rumours suggesting she played a part in The Mask of Zorro's marriage breakdown after video footage of the pair dancing at an event in Cannes, France in 2012 surfaced online days after news of the split broke, leading to reports suggesting the Indian actress had enjoyed a romantic vacation with the 53 year old.
Denying the story, the Khwahish star, 37, tells Eonline.com: "Antonio Banderas is a wonderful man, a great dancer and an acquaintance of mine. I did not go on any vacation with him, and I'm sorry he's going through a divorce."
A host of famous fathers including Nathan Followill, Rob Lowe and Mark Ruffalo have taken to Twitter.com to mark Father's Day (15Jun14). The stars uploaded moving messages to their own dads, and their kids, in celebration of the international day which honours fatherhood.
Kings of Leon rocker Followill, who is dad to daughter Violet, enjoyed breakfast with the tot ahead of his set at Britain's Isle of Wight Festival on Sunday night (15Jun14).
He tweeted: "Happy Fathers Day. Breakfast & lunch with Violet, dinner with a few thousand friends at Isle of Wight. See y'all soon."
Actor Lowe, who is currently in London, reveals he will celebrate Father's Day by watching tennis star Andy Murray on the court, writing, "Father's day in London. Off to Queen's Cup. Go Andy!"
Father of three Ruffalo adds, "Happy Fathers Day , brother Dads!", while British pop star Marvin Humes writes, "Happy Father's Day to my amazing Dad Colin Humes... you are now and will always be The Man! See u (sic) tonight!"
Humes' singer wife Rochelle also tweeted a sentimental message to mark the day, writing: "Happy Father's Day to my one and only - MarvinHumes The best dad our baby girl could ever ask for. We love you soooo (sic) much."
The Hunger Games star Sam Claflin added a tribute to his own dad, tweeting, "Happy Father's Day to the big man @markclaflin. Wish England (soccer team) could've have worked some magic for you last night (at the World Cup)... Have a great day mate."
The England team was beaten 2-1 by Italy in their opening World Cup game.
Meanwhile, Limp Bizkit star Fred Durst provided his own rock 'n' roll Father's Day message, writing, "Happy Father's Day to the present and loving fathers out there. The rest of ya loser dads can suck it (sic)."
And Rihanna tweeted, "Happy Father's Day Pops! I love you deeply and unconditionally! You've taught me so much about myself!"
She later added, "Happy Father's Day to the step fathers who step up for the fathers who cant! And especially to the Mothers who have to be both, we adore you."
Actress Eva Longoria also tweeted, "Happy Father's Day to all the dads in the world but especially mine!! I love u daddy!" And Sharon Osbourne paid tribute to the men in her life - husband Ozzy and son Jack, writing, "Happy Father's Day to my Husband @OzzyOsbourne and my Son @JackOsbourne. I’m so proud of you both. You’re both crazy f**ks, but I love you."
Glee star Lea Michele completed the collection of celebrities remembering their dads - she posted a picture of herself in an American football costume with her father and the caption, "Happy Fathers Day to the greatest dad in the whole world! Thank you for always making me and mommy laugh we love you!"
Sharon Osbourne delighted an aspiring male singer in London on Monday night (09Jun14) by giving him around $80 (£50) after he belted out a cover of ABBA's I Have A Dream for her as she left a restaurant. The rock matriarch, who served as a judge on Britain's The X Factor, was so impressed, she also took down his phone number and promised to pass it on to her reality show mogul pal Simon Cowell for consideration on one of his talent shows.
Sharon Osbourne was forced to borrow her daughter's clothing on Saturday night (07Jun14) after airline staff lost her suitcase. Kelly Osbourne stepped out for dinner with her music manager mother and some family friends after jetting into London from Los Angeles as part of a family homecoming, but Sharon was forced to improvise her wardrobe after British Airways officials misplaced her luggage.
The Fashion Police presenter took to her Twitter.com page to reveal all about the drama, writing, "@Britsh_airways its (sic) not ok that you lost my mums (sic) bags w/ (with) all her clothes! Last night she had to borrow my dress & she looked ridiculous!"
The Book Of Mormon has officially been deemed a West End hit after winning four prizes, including Best New Musical, at the 2014 Olivier Awards in London. The Tony Award-winning stage show, from South Park creators Trey Parker and Matt Stone, opened in London last year (13) and it dominated the musical categories at the annual theatre prizegiving, taking home Best Actor in a Musical for Gavin Creel, Best Performance in a Supporting Role in a Musical for Stephen Ashfield and Best Theatre Choreographer for Casey Nicholaw.
The Best Actress in a Musical title went to Zrinka Cvitesic for Once.
Meanwhile, Lucy Kirkwood's thriller Chimerica was another big winner, being named Best New Play and earning Best Director for Lyndsey Turner, as Rory Kinnear walked away with Best Actor for Othello and Lesley Manville claimed the female equivalent for Ghosts.
Ghosts was also named Best Revival and landed Jack Lowden Best Actor in a Supporting Role. Sharon D Clarke was awarded the Best Actress in a Supporting Role prize for The Amen Corner.
Guests at the Royal Opera House event on Sunday (13Apr14) were treated to performances from Broadway regular Bernadette Peters and tenor Joseph Calleia, but the highlight of the night came when ABBA stars Benny Andersson and Bjorn Ulvaeus joined the cast of Mamma Mia! to sing a medley of hits in celebration of the musical's 15th anniversary in the West End.
I know, that headline is trouble. You're always treading dangerous ground when you insist on defining what makes a good this or the right kind of that, as if there is no room for change or improvement when it comes to classic properties. Of course there is — Jason Segel's 2011 Muppet film approached the concept from an entirely different direction. It didn't hit all of its marks, but it prevailed overall in its conceit: make a movie not about Muppets, but about Muppet fandom. But Muppets Most Wanted, in absence of a clear mission statement and fueled largely by the monetary glimmers of the sequel game (the film's opening number admits this outright), has fewer marks readily available to hit. Landing in the ambiguity between the classic Muppet adventure formula and Segel's post-modern Henson appreciation party, Most Wanted feels like a failure on both counts. It doesn't know which kind of movie it wants to, or should, be. So it doesn't really be anything.
On the one hand, there's the half-cocked "get-the-band-back-together" through line, mimicking but not quite accomplishing the spirit of the 2011 picture. None of the Muppets are particularly likable or charming in this turn, and even fewer of them actually given anything to do. Kermit loses his s**t in the first act after a spat with Piggy and a barrage of insubordination from his troupe (provoked by the nefarious Dominic Badguy, Ricky Gervais), storms off in a huff, and gets swept up in a case of mistaken identity when his criminal doppelganger Constantine pulls the old switcheroo, landing Kermit in a Russian gulag. You'd think this would be a good opportunity for the second tier of Muppet favorites — Piggy, Fozzy, Gonzo, Scooter, Rowlf, et al — to go on a search and rescue... but save for a very brief sequence at the tail end of this achingly long film, none of the other Muppets are giving anything to do. They just hem and haw and perform the occasional "Indoor Running of the Bulls" while Dominic and Constantine scheme, rob banks, and bicker.
Meanwhile, Kermit has some fun in prison — a far more endearing plot that sees him befriending the merry convicts, organizing a penitentiary revue, and even winning the heart of the vicious warden Nadia (Tina Fey). If only we could spend more time with real Kermit and less time with fake Kermit and his second banana Gervais, an effectively boring pair.
On the other hand, though, there's the Muppet shtick that fans of The Great Muppet Caper and Muppet Treasure Island — and yes, The Muppet Show itself — will deem the movie's best material: CIA Agent Sam Eagle and Interpol Agent Jean Pierre Napoleon (Ty Burrell) hot on the trail of Constantine and Dominic. Here, we get a different type of Muppet movie entirely from what Segel and the A-plot in Most Wanted are opting: the old fashioned vaudeville act, with Sam standing as an independent entity from his googly-eyed brethren, on a goofy, musical prowl with Burrell that fuels the film with its best and most consistent chuckles. Their "Interrogation Song" number is outstanding, exemplifying the many talents of Flight of the Conchords' Bret McKenzie, who wrote all the music for this and the previous film.
The best player in the World for movie trailers, Hollywood interviews and movie clips.
Unfortunately, Muppets Most Wanted isn't sure that it wants to be The Great Muppet Caper, beheld so stubbornly to its Segelian roots. There's a palpable compulsion to stick with this agonizingly self-aware, nostalgia-crazy, brimming-beacons-of-the-past-in-a-callous-today theme that doesn't work a fraction as well as it did in the 2011 film. Without a legitimate celebration of any of our favorite characters, how could it? With so much going on in this movie, and such a lengthy runtime at just under two hours, it's a sure sign of failure that we walk away feeling like we spent barely any time with the Muppets.

Treading water at the very surface of RoboCop, there is an idea. A dense concept, ready and willing to provide no dearth of dissection for any eager student of philosophy, psychology, political science, physics — hell, any of the Ps. To simplify the idea on hand: What separates man from machine? It's a question that is not just teased by the basic premise of José Padilha's remake of the 1987 sci-fi staple, but asked outright by many of its main characters. And then never really worried about again.
We have principal parties on both sides of the ethical quandary that would place the security of our crime-ridden cities in the hands of automatons. Samuel L. Jackson plays a spitfire Bill O'Reilly who wonders why America hasn't lined its streets with high-efficiency officer droids. Zach Grenier, as a moralistic senator, gobbles his way through an opposition to the Pro-boCop movement. We hear lecture after lecture from pundits, politicians, business moguls (a money-hungry Michael Keaton heads the nefarious OmniCorp...) and scientists (...while his top doc Gary Oldman questions the nature of his assignments while poking at patients' brains and spouting diatribes about "free will"), all working their hardest to lay thematic groundwork. Each character insists that we're watching a movie about the distinction between human and artificial intelligence. That even with an active brain, no robot can understand what it means to have a heart. But when Prof. Oldman tempers his hysterical squawking and Samuel L. Hannity rolls his closing credits, we don't see these ideas taking life.
In earnest, the struggle of rehabilitated police officer Alex Murphy (Joel Kinnaman) — nearly killed in the line of duty and turned thereafter into OmniCorp's prototype RoboCop — doesn't seem to enlist any of the questions that his aggravated peers have been asking. Murphy is transformed not just physically, but mentally — robbed of his decision-making ability and depleted of emotional brain chemicals — effectively losing himself in the process. But the journey we see take hold of Murphy is not one to reclaim his soul, although the movie touts it as such. It's really just one to become a better robot.

Meanwhile, RoboCop lays down its motives, and hard: Murphy's wife and son (Abbie Cornish and a puckish young John Paul Ruttan) lament the loss of Alex, condemning his dehumanization at the hands of Raymond Sellars' (Keaton) capitalistic experiments, and sobbing out some torrential pathos so you know just how deep this company is digging. Weaselly stooges (Jay Baruchel, Jennifer Ehle, and Jackie Earl Haley) line the OmniCorp roster with comical wickedness. Overseas, killer combat bots take down peaceful villages, unable to work empathetic judgment into their decision to destroy all deemed as "threats." And at the top, figures of power and money like Sellars and Pat Novak (Jackson) speak the loudest and harshest, literally justifying their agenda with a call for all naysayers to "stop whining." Clearly, RoboCop has something to say.
The best player in the World for movie trailers, Hollywood interviews and movie clips.
And when it's devoted to its outrage, RoboCop is terrifically charming. The buzzing political world is just a tiny step closer to ridiculous than our own; the pitch meetings at OmniCorp are fun enough to provoke a ditching of all the material outside of the company walls. And one particular reference to The Wizard of Oz shows that the movie isn't above having fun with its admittedly silly premise. But it loses its magic when it steps away from goofy gimmicks and satirical monologues and heads back into the story. We don't see enough of Murphy grappling with the complicated balance between his conflicting organic and synthetic selves. In fact, we don't see enough "story" in Murphy at all. First, he's a dad and a cop. Then, he's a RoboCop. But can he also be a RoboDad? With all of its ranting and raving about the question, the film doesn't seem to concerned with actually figuring out the answer.

Rock matriarch Sharon Osbourne has shocked fans after she was photographed sobbing as she left a party in London. Ozzy Osbourne's wife attended a wrap party following the finale of British TV talent show The X Factor on Sunday night (15Dec13), just hours after her act, singer Sam Bailey, was declared the 2013 season winner.
Osbourne, who is a judge and mentor on the programme, didn't leave the bash at the One Marylebone venue until the early hours of Monday morning (16Dec13), and she was snapped in floods of tears as she headed home.
Osbourne's make-up was smeared down her face, and she was pictured with tears rolling down her cheeks as she made her way to a waiting car. She was also snapped crying while typing on her cell phone as she sat in the back seat.
Reports suggest Osbourne will not be returning to the show next year (14).
