Martin Scorsese has no plans to finish Bill Clinton documentary after an apparent disagreement
Parts of the movie were shot over the last two years, notably when Mr Clinton made a philanthropic visit to Africa, however, it has now been shelved indefinitely because the former President insisted on more control over the interview questions and the final version. It was more than Mr Scorsese was prepared to give and the project hit a wall.

During the 2014 Clinton Global Initiative in New York's Time-Life Building, Bill Clinton addressed questions about how the digital era has affected the initiative, with things like crowd funding and 3D printing making huge leaps forward in what can be achieved. He then posed for a selfie.

The legendary musician became the first honouree of new award during the one-off London Palladium show
There's a new award in town, one that honours those musicians who have made the greatest, most lasting contribution to music in the modern era; the Brits Icon Award. The first ever Icon to be handed out was done so during a spectacular and star-studded show at London's Palladium Theatre, during which the first honouree of the coveted award played a hit-filled set to his adoring peers. That person; Sir Elton John.
Sir Elton became the first honouree of the new award
The gala concert, his first since undergoing surgery for appendicitis earlier this year, saw Elton presented the award by his friend Rod Stewart in front of a celebrity-filled audience that also included Liz Hurley, Lulu, former-President Bill Clinton, Ringo Starr, Gary Barlow and many more. The singing icon received a standing ovation as he took to the stage to collect his award, having been introduced by Stewart, who cheekily referred to the man of the hour as "the second-best rock singer ever."

Justin Bieber has apologised for his behaviour after video footage showing the 19year-old urinating in a nightclub mop bucket and swearing at a picture of Bill Clinton went viral.
Justin Bieber apologised to former President Bill Clinton after footage showing the 19-year-old swearing at his picture went viral. However, the singer did not apologise for publically relieving himself in a night club mop bucket.
Justin Bieber in the West End, London earlier this year.
The teenager was videoed, supposedly, by one of his friends. The incident occurred in a New York nightclub earlier this year. The footage shows Bieber using a mop bucket to relieve himself. Upon finishing his rather public business, the pop sensation on his way out threw blue liquid on a picture of Clinton and shouted a profanity.
The former White House intern is having some of her belongings used in the federal case against President Clinton put up for auction
Monica Lewinsky will be airing out her dirty laundry in public once again, only this time she wont be bringing any Presidencies to an end, but rather having some of her belongings put on sale from the Lewinsky scandal. The items from the federal investigation are being sold off by auction house Nate D. Sanders, with online bidding ending this Thursday (June 27).
Among the items being put up for sale include letters between Lewinsky and Andy Bleiler, who was also involved in the Lewinsky as another married man with whom Lewinsky was said to had an affair while she was an intern at the White House, and some items of clothing including a black negligee and a large blue velour hoodie. It does not, however, contain the infamous blue dress which proved in court that the then-intern had extra-marital relationship with Bill Clinton in the 1990s.
The current bid - as of Tuesday (June 25) afternoon - on lot #375 stands at $3,025 and is believed to be worth within the region of $25,000 and $50,000. With only two days to go, the bidding is going to have to be knocked up a peg if it is to meet it's valuation, but how many Monica Lewinsky fanciers willing to pay $50,000 can be out there?

Thankfully the Rolling Stones were on hand instead
Neither charity nor former President Bill Clinton could persuade Led Zeppelin to reform for last year’s Hurricane Sandy benefit concert, it’s been revealed by the Robin Hood Foundation’s executive director David Saltzman.
As you’ll all probably recall, Saltzman – with the help of entertainment mogul Harvey Weinstein – put together a high profile benefit concert in New York on the December 12, 2012 in aid of those who’d had their homes and lives devastated by the natural disaster. Paul McCartney and Bruce Springsteen were among the legends to play while all manner of celebs manned the telephone lines during the course of the telethon. However, as Saltzman told CBS, one band refused to get involved.
“There were two bands we were trying to recruit, one was The Rolling Stones and the other was Led Zeppelin,” Saltzman explained to CBS. “Harvey Weinstein had this great idea that he could enlist Bill Clinton to convince Led Zepplin to reunite to perform at the 12/12/12 concert. Harvey and I got on a plane to fly down to Washington to meet Bill Clinton who was going to meet Led Zeppelin, who were being honored at the Kennedy Center.” Continuing he added “Bill Clinton himself asked Led Zeppelin to reunite and they wouldn’t do it.” Thankfully there was one band who would – eventually. “At the airport I literally bumped into Keith Richards of the Rolling Stones and he said ‘you tell Harvey Weinstein to f**k off!’” Saltzman said, before adding “And his publicist came up behind him and said ‘they’re going to do it. He’s just joking.’”

Jennifer Lawrence debuted a new hair style at the GLAAD Media Awards in Los Angeles.
Jennifer Lawrence has done the unthinkable, she's only gone and chopped her hair off. Well, not all over it, but quite a lot of it. The Silver Linings Playbook Oscar-winner debuted a shorter style at the GLAAD Media Awards 2013, presented by Ketel One Vodka. Though she was joined by the likes of Bill Clinton, Drew Barrymore, Charlize Theron and Leonardo DiCaprio, Lawrence and her new hairstyle stole the show.
Jennifer Lawrence Debuted A New Hair Style At The GLAAD Media Awards In Los Angeles
Prior to taking to the stage with movie executive Harvey Weinstein, the actress posed for photographers on the red carpet at the JW Marriott at L.A. Live. Her long blonde locks have given way to shoulder-length layers, similar to Karlie Kloss' chin-lenth chop which the New York Times named "the haircut of the year," in January.
Hollywood actress forgets he isn't President anymore
Bill Clinton’s probably one of the most famous men in the planet, there’s no way you’d ever forget his name – so we’ll put it down to nerves of introducing the man that Oscar winning actress Jennifer Lawrence manage to fluff pronouncing his name at the GLAAD Awards over the weekend.
“We are happy to present GLAAD’s Advocate For Change Award to President Cli… Bill Clinton” fluffed Lawrence, managing to forget he was no longer President anyway, pulling a shocked face and then recovering. As he walked onto the stage the star look distressed, and was heard muttering “of all the things to mess up…” off the microphone. Thankfully Clinton’s a pretty relaxed guy these days, and took it all in his stride, walking on with a big laugh and giving the actress a hug.
The GLAAD awards are run by the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender media advocacy organisation of America, and award those who have helped to fight for equal rights for those parties. In a statement explaining why Clinton had received the award, GLAAD’s Wilson Cruz commented: "President Clinton's support of the LGBT community and recognition that DOMA, the so-called Defense of Marriage Act, is unconstitutional and should be struck down shows that the political landscape continues to change in favor of LGBT equality. Leaders and allies like President Clinton are critical to moving our march for equality forward."

He’s not been President in some 12 years, but you can always rely on Bill Clinton to take the center stage somehow. The popular former leader of the USA made sure that he was among the headline makers at yesterday’s inauguration for the re-election of Barack Obama by sitting himself behind Kelly Clarkson and pulling an amusing face as she got ready to sing ‘My Country Tis Of Thee’.
It’s a really genius photo, Clinton’s face not over the top, but his surprised-looking glance towards Clarkson just enough to completely take all the attention off the multi-million selling singer and squarely onto him. The former Prez can’t help but hog the limelight; remember back in 2008 when he fell asleep during a Martin Luther King speech? Priceless, it appears Bill is more than comfortable doing what he wants, when he wants, how he wants.

HBO have confirmed that a documentary surrounding the powerful political figure, Bill Clinton, will be directed by Martin Scorsese. There is, however, no confirmed date as to when it will air, neither is there a title.
"A towering figure who remains a major voice in world issues, President Clinton continues to shape the political dialogue both here and around the world," Scorsese said in a statement. "Through intimate conversations, I hope to provide greater insight into this transcendent figure." Scorsese has forged a close working relationship with HBO, working on two separate documentaries with them, as well as with the entertainment side of their broadcasting, as he helmed the pilot episode of Boardwalk Empire, which has recently wrapped up its third season, with more on the way. Scorsese, of course, brings a wealth of moviemaking prowess with him, which will transform any documentary into a cinematic event as well as a fact-telling endeavour. As was the case with 41 - the doc about George H.W. Bush, which premiered last summer - Clinton's will be made with his full cooperation.
"I am pleased that legendary director Martin Scorsese and HBO have agreed to do this film," President Clinton added. "I look forward to sharing my perspective on my years as President, and my work in the years since, with HBO's audience."
130 plus others didn't -- people who saw the recall as an opportunity to qualify themselves on the ballot and acquire a nanosecond of fame they never would in any other way. Leave it to California to be open to an adult film actress, an actor, a comedian, a musician-laborer, a stay-at-home mom, a golf pro, various attorneys including one calling himself a marijuana legalization attorney, a sumo wrestler, a tribal chairman, students, the barely intelligible, the delusional hopefuls and other dreamers with bizarre ideas bordering on profound political ignorance to run for the state's highest office. Small wonder people across the world saw the affair as a circus.
