Scottish superstar DJ Calvin Harris was soaked during a performance in London over the weekend (20-21Apr13) when a clubgoer threw a drink over him. The Sweet Nothing beatmaker was playing a set at the Project Club in the U.K. capital when one disgruntled reveller hurled the beverage at him.
A source tells Britain's The Sun, "Calvin took it all in his stride. He even joked that next time he DJs he'll wear waterproofs.
"The culprit was dealt with very quickly and 95 per cent of the clubbers didn't even notice.
"Calvin was a pro and carried on unfazed and ended up DJing for extra time when a lot of lesser performers would have stormed off."
Scottish DJ Calvin Harris has broken Michael Jackson's U.K. chart record to take the title for the most top 10 singles from one album. The producer scored his eighth big hit from his 2012 release 18 Months on Sunday (21Apr13) when I Need Your Love, his collaboration with British singer Ellie Goulding, reached number seven - beating the King of Pop, who previously racked up seven top 10 mentions from his 1987 classic Bad.
The current rating descriptor for Jurassic Park 3D warns that the re-released PG-13 classic has "intense science fiction terror." Fair enough, but what exactly qualifies as "intense science fiction terror"? Conventional wisdom would tell you that's Alien but in space no one can hear you scream. It's not that Jurassic Park isn't intense (twenty years later, the kitchen raptor sequence is still nightmare fuel) but that's still pretty vague in the already deeply flawed ratings system by the MPAA.
According to the Associated Press, the Motion Picture Association of America announced on Tuesday they will begin to roll out more "prominent descriptions explaining why a movie received its rating" with the descriptions in large type next to the given rating. After all, won't somebody please think of the children?! How are parents supposed to know exactly what "a sexual reference", "thematic elements", "some scary action", or a "disturbing image" would qualify as?
So, perhaps instead of the "intense science fiction terror" warning, a new Jurassic Park 3D explanation would be "intense science fiction terror, including violence, children in peril, animals in peril, RAPTORS, mild blood, mild language, and excessive wearing of khaki shorts." While the MPAA assured the new system will make the descriptors "easier to read", parents groups and gun groups were apparently "greeted the announcement with a shrug." (For the record, a shrug would probably get a PG rating).
Until the new ratings system gets under way, we here at Hollywood wanted to help out and give you more detailed ratings descriptors for some movies currently in theaters:

Top DJ Tiesto will be more than a performer at Las Vegas' hot new restaurant/club Hakkasan - he has also been involved in the menu and the design. The Dutch star recently announced a 20-month residency at the MGM Grand resort, which includes a string of shows at Sin City's hottest new club - and he has designed the DJ booth for the venue.
The gigs mark Tiesto's latest collaboration with Hakkasan boss Neil Moffitt, who gave the DJ his big break in Ibiza in the late 1990s.
Opening up about his new challenge, Tiesto tells MLife magazine, "I've loved Las Vegas since the first time I came here... It's so beautiful. I always wanted to be a resident here, but I've never had the opportunity to do it right because dance music wasn't big enough."
Moffitt gave his DJ pal free range to create his area of the club and the sound and lighting for his upcoming Club Life shows - and Tiesto will also be responsible for bringing his dance music peers to the venue.
He says, "The Club Life mix is all about what my vision is of a club. It's not necessarily just about me, but musically, vibe wise, what I think the club lifestyle should be about."
Tiesto will be joined during his residency by fellow top DJs Deadmau5 and Calvin Harris, who has committed to 46 dates at Hakkasan.
