Robert Pattinson hits the cover of French Premier’ magazine. The 23-year-old Twilight star is featured on the cover of the September issue of French version of Premiere magazine. Pattinson is shown wearing a Batman t-shirt and a worn-in leather jacket, both items that fans would find typical of his usual wardrobe. Pattinson did an interview with the magazine, where he discussed many topics, including his thoughts on being a superstar: “I was in a restaurant during a break at Cannes, and when I came out two hours later, 500 people were waiting for me at the exit. They literally had to carry me to the car.” Pattinson also told the Continue reading →
Having already conquered the Billboard albums chart, the fashion world and Israel’s obscenity laws, Lady Gaga has reportedly set her sights on dominating the buttoned-up world of adult contemporary. She’s written songs with none other than Michael Bolton. In an interview with London’s Metro newspaper, the 56-year-old Bolton — best known for his (formerly} flowing locks and husky takes on songs like “When a Man Loves a Woman” and “How Am I Supposed to Live Without You” — said he has been working with Gaga on his upcoming album, One World One Love. The collaboration actually happened before Gaga went supernova — and it was apparently all her idea. “I was taking a break from production when my manager and the label tag-teamed me on the phone about writing with a young artist named Lady Gaga who I had never heard of — but they were raving about,” Bolton told the paper. “They said that she was a huge fan of mine and wanted to write with me. No one I knew had heard of her … but less than a minute into ‘Just Dance,’ I thought, ‘This CD is gonna be huge!’ ” So Bolton agreed to work with Gaga, and when the two finally met, he was taken by her energy and commitment … and realized right away that she was destined for greatness. “When I met her in the studio later that night, I realized she was not only about to have a big hit record, but Gaga was a superstar about to launch. … Her energy was so high and her focus excited me,” Bolton continued. “She reminded me of a young Madonna, with more exuberance and emphasis on the art rather than the marketing.” The Metro article does not mention the name of the song or songs that Gaga and Bolton collaborated on, but over the weekend, a track called “Murder My Heart” leaked, and apparently it’s the fruit of the duo’s labor (it’s definitely Bolton, and we think we hear Gaga on the backing track). Attempting to verify that fact, MTV News reached out to reps for both artists, but at press time, we had yet to receive a response. According to Bolton’s Web site, One World One Love is due September 21.
“Before Fuel got big, they played in my hometown. I was only going to the show because it was at a club I liked—I’d never heard or seen them before. I was in the backseat of my friend’s car, and we were looking for a parking spot. Then I saw this dude wearing these crazy, tight leather pants, dark black eyeliner, and a fuzzy, body-hugging sweater. So I yell to my friends, ‘Check out this weirdo! What a poser!’ I didn’t realize the driver’s window was down, and the guy totally heard me. He shot our car the nastiest look—but that’s not the most embarrassing part. Later, I was front and center when Fuel hit the stage, and Mr. Poser is Brett Scallions—the lead singer! So he turns to me, gives me this sarcastic smile, and waves. My jaw hit the floor!”
While Jon Gosselin has been spotted out with more than one woman since splitting from his wife, Kate Gosselin is not ready for romance. “I am not yet divorced officially,” she told Larry King on CNN’s Larry King Live Tuesday when asked if she feels single.

Addressing how the couple’s children – 9-year-old twins (Mady and Cara) and 5-year-old sextuplets (Hannah, Aaden, Collin, Joel, Alexis and Leah) – are handling the split, Gosselin said: “They understand the process [of divorce]. They’re working through it the same way that Jon and I are. They’re doing remarkably well.” Gosselin says that like any kids whose parents Continue reading →
