54-year-old Jurassic Park actor and acting coach Cameron Thor has been arrested on suspicion of kidnapping and raping a 13-year-old girl he had been giving acting classes. Thor has been accused of sexually assaulting the girl over the period of a year, apparently taking her to a secluded area. He has been charged on 11 counts, including rape, sexual penetration, robbery and kidnap, according to the Daily Mail.

He had taught the girl between April 2008 and March 2009 at the coaching school he runs with his partner Alice Carter. The website for the acting school has since been taken down.

Is Avril Lavigne's New Music Video A Crime Against Music? [Video]


Avril Lavigne Katy Perry Gwen Stefani Chad Kroeger

Avril Lavigne has dropped the music video for her sugary new single, 'Hello Kitty' from new album, Avril Lavigne. The rock and dubstep fusion track will be a surprise to say the least for fans of the pop punk of her early 'Sk8er Boi' days as the 29 year-old singer-songwriter boldly marches in a new direction in her sound.

Avril Lavigne
Avril Lavigne Couldn't Have Predicted The Internet Storm That Would Greet Her New Video.

The girlish and garish 'Hello Kitty' will make fans recall the singer's similar U-turn on 'Girlfriend' but instead of cheerleader stomp rap and girl-on-girl cat-fighting, the new track is altogether another feline, full of dubstep drops, vocal effects and electro buzzes. Dressed in a plastic homage to Japanese teen culture, Avril debuts a new pastel-coloured, half shaved Skrillex-style hairdo which somehow manages to make the cheesy vid all the more terrible.

Gwen Stefani Could Be Heading To 'The Voice' To Fill In For Christina Aguilera


Gwen Stefani Christina Aguilera

No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani is reportedly about to become latest addition to ‘The Voice's’ judging pannel, replacing the pregnant Christina Aguilera. The NBC show, which has already added Pharrell Williams to its season 7 lineup, is said to have signed Stefani for one season to fill in for the expectant Aguliera.

Gwen StefaniIs Gwen Stefani about to join 'The Voice'?

TMZ broke the news, reporting that Gwen has signed on for season 7 of the talent show, which begins taping in June. The deal is said to be only for one season as Aguilera has decided to bow out as she is pregnant with her second child, due later this year with fiancee. It's also reported that NBC wanted Aguilera to stay but the singer was having a difficult time already.

She is expected to return for the eighth season of the show so Stefani may be a temporary replacement.

Gwen Stefani To Step In For Christina Aguilera On "The Voice"


Christina Aguilera Gwen Stefani

We never would have pegged Gwen Stefani as the reality talent panelist type, but apparently, money talks and former 90s punk talent listens. Stefani is reportedly in talks to replace fellow blonde pop star Christina Aguilera. Reports are unclear on whether the deal has been made final, but according to “official sources” for TMZ, Stefani has already signed on for next season. Season 7 starts taping in June.

Christina Aguilera
After four seasons on the show, Aguilera is taking a break to have her second child.

Christina Aguilera announced her exit from the show back in February, along with her pregnancy. It makes sense for the big-voiced singer to take a season of maternity leave, of course, given that she will be eight or nine months pregnant by the time the battle rounds begin. According to TMZ, NBC wanted Christina to stay during her pregnancy but she's having a difficult time already and ultimately bowed out.

Celebrity Fashion Lines: The Good, The Bad And The Ugly


Beyonce Knowles Victoria Beckham Jessica Simpson Olsen Twins Kim Kardashian Gwen Stefani

If they’re not bringing out fragrances, they’re designing complete fashion lines. You just can’t hold those stars down when it comes to sticking their fingers in all the pies, whether they have any discernible skill for fashion design or not. Some of these celebs found their true calling when they branched out in to the world of fashion, some of them we merely lament the day that anyone suggested they pick up a pencil.

victoria beckham fashion Victoria Beckham is the queen of all fashionistas

Victoria Beckham is probably the biggest popstar-turned-designer success story. From her early days designing jeans for Rock & Republic through to her latest collections which have been hailed as her best yet, Victoria’s designs have matured and she is now not just a credible designer, but a leading name in high fashion.

Kate Winslet's Son Bear Blaze,and Other Bizarre Celebrity Baby Names


Kate Winslet Bob Geldof Pixie Geldof Gwen Stefani Gavin Rossdale Gwyneth Paltrow Beyonce Knowles Chris Martin Jay Z

Children of celebrities never have to go to normal schools where the other children will make fun of their wacky names, which means that the stars can go wild when naming their pampered offspring. There must be schools in Beverly Hills teaming with Donatello Zeuses and Princess Bananaramas. 

You don’t come across many Janes or Johns in the celeb baby world, but funnily there seems to be a few Bears going around at the moment. Kate Winslet and Alicia Silverstone both have sons called Bear, although to set mini Winslet apart his middle name is Blaze, as a reminder of the house fire that his parents first met in. Romantic.  As a side note, Winslet's husband changed his own name to Ned RocknRoll, so we're not surprised that the couple have chosen a name that is a little less out of the ordinary.

Keira And James? Kate And Jamie? Who Wins Best Dressed Celebrity Couple?


Keira Knightley Gwen Stefani Kate Moss

These two may have married in secret but there’s one thing that they just can’t hide. That they are one of the most fashionable celebrity couples on the scene! When Keira Knightley and husband James Righton appeared at Paris Fashion Week together to take the FROW at Chanel, they looked sharp and chic, Keira in her optical illusion Karl Lagerfeld creation with her husband by her side looking smooth in a suit and pastel blue skinny tie. The pair, who lives in trendy East London, usually opt for a more laid back look. James, who is the keyboard player and co-vocalist of London-based band Klaxons always looks every inch the new rave rockstar in jeans and boots, while Keira’s signature look is a sophisticated grunge.

bradley cooper suki waterhouse Bradley and Suki are the hottest celebrity couple at the moment

Keira and James aren’t the only well co-ordinated pair in the celeb world, these other celebrity couples are definitely strong contenders in the style stakes. Hottest couple of the moment, Bradley Cooper and Suki Waterhouse, have been together for just over a year now but already consistently top the style charts. British model Suki’s enviable wardrobe has been featured in Vogue’s What I’m Wearing segment, while no-one looks swish in a suit quite like Brad (unless it's him and Gerard Butler in suits together, taking selfies...in fact, we might prefer them as a stylish celeb couple over Brad and Suki...)

Stefani's baby bump became increasingly obvious recently

The news comes on the back of growing speculation surrounding the singer's uterus, as Gwen had been spotted on various occasions of late with what looked like a burgeoning baby bump. Reports first began to emerge in September last year that the two were expecting their third child and these reports reemerged after Christmas. Stefani was spotted visiting friends in Beverley Hills, with what looked like a clear baby bump or the sign of way too much turkey on 26 December and was spotted again in Beverley Hills with her belly sticking out days later, however the singer and her husband remained quiet as to whether there was another baby on the way.

Rita Ora is set to release her sophomore album sooner than you might have expected, as the singer recently told The Mirror her still-untitled second LP is just about done. Want to thank someone for getting the album up and running so soon? how about the artist formerly and currently known as Prince!

Rita has some big names lined up for the new release

The Purple One has contributed to at least one of the tracks on the follow-up to 2012 No. 1 album Ora, although she remained coy over just how much they have worked on together. She told the paper, "I have met him and I have had the honour of being in the same studio as him. We messed around with some music and you know, I can't believe he can play so many instruments. All I can say is that we've definitely done some music together."

We're not exaggerating when we say 'the best' either, because Ora has been working with the one and only Prince! The 'Radioactive' singer revealed recently that she and the legendary Purple One have been in the studio together, but without getting specific she only went as far as saying the pair have "done some music together."

US singer Kesha, AKA Ke$ha, has been told she will not be welcome to perform in Malaysia, leading to her scheduled Saturday show in Kuala Lumpur cancelled.

Not 'Just A Girl' Gwen Stefani Talks About The Challenges Of Her Career


Gwen Stefani No Doubt

Gwen Stefani is a talented lady. A great singer, fantastic performer, fashion designer, business woman, devoted mother and wife, she has managed, with success, to be one of those lucky women who 'has it all'. But 'having it all', paradoxically, doesn't come for free, and talking to Vogue, she (along with the rest of No Doubt) tells them about the hard work and elements of sacrifice it all takes.

"She thinks she's failing at everything," said her ex-boyfriend, Tony Kanal. "It's hard to manage that many things: She's got the band, her family, her husband, her clothing lines...I think when she looks back on it, she'll see she did incredibly well." 

In a world of rock music, where Gwen's constantly surrounded by men, Kanal and the band have noted the difference in their genders, by saying how different it is for her to be touring while being a mother, as opposed to a father, and Gwen has also felt that difference over the years. "There have been some times where I have felt that really sh*tty feeling of being like, Gosh, do the men in this world even think that I'm on their level?"

Gwen Stefani Takes Charge And Gives Herself A Break


Gwen Stefani

In this month's Marie Claire, Gwen Stefani graces the cover, looking demure, elegant, grown up. She's never been particularly good at giving herself a break, going straight from working with No Doubt, full pelt into her solo career, then combining that with a short acting career. And then she began working as a designed for her clothing company L.A.M.B, and then, adding to those, she's a mother and wife. Anyway, now she's decided enough is enough and in an interview with Marie Claire has revealed how she's managed to free up some of her precious time.

"I was swimming upstream, trying to balance everything that's been going on with having kids and a family. There's no way to do all these things." She said, "I would be up all night because my second baby didn't sleep, and he had a lot of ear infections. Then I'd wake up in the morning and do my workout, which I always felt I had to do, and then meetings for my three clothing lines, and then hang out with my kids, take them to preschool - da, da, da... 'At four o'clock, I'd be like, 'Alright, I'm out of here. I'm going to go to the studio and try to write a record.' I'd sit on the couch [with my band mates] and be like, 'Let's do this now, because I'm missing time with the kids. I could be having dinner with them and putting them to bed.' It was really hard."

After exhausting and infuriating herself, finally she came up with a solution: "This past year, I kind of stopped working out. I think my body just needed a break. And so I did that and focused more on feeling good as opposed to beating myself up. [Plus,]I've learned to delegate [in L.A.M.B.]. It still looks awesome, but did I pick the buttons? No, I didn't. I missed two fashion weeks because they were when school started. I can't miss the first week of kindergarten."

Oh Dear: No Doubt Sell Just 680 Copies Of 'Looking Hot'


No Doubt Gwen Stefani The X Factor

No Doubt's latest single 'Looking Hot' has well and truly bombed, having sold just 680 copies in its first week of release in the UK. The second single to be taken the band's comeback album Push and Shove reached No 397 on the singles chart, some 1,500 copies short of breaking into the Top 200, reports NME.com.

It's an odd result, given the relative popularity of singer Gwen Stefani and the group's recent performance on x factor, which usually lifts an artist's sales by around 300 per cent. The album peaked at No.16 in the chart, selling less than 7,000 copies while first single Settle Down reached No.85. Essentially, it's been a disastrous comeback for the group, who were criticised for their video for Looking Hot, which depicted Gwen Stefani as a Native American squaw dancing in a tepee. The band apologised for any offence and pulled the clip. It could go towards explaining the single's poor performance, and Last.FM say 28,000 people have "scrobbled" the song, which has clocked 117,000 plays. It's likely that fans are playing the songs on streaming services such as Spotify, rather than downloading and listening on iTunes.

Though the band has made its millions over the years, its recent chart performance will disappoint Stefani and company. She's probably rueing the decision to pull the plug on her hugely successful solo career and reunite with her old pals.

Is No Doubt's Looking Hot Video Racist?


No Doubt Gwen Stefani

No Doubt has pulled its video for new single 'Looking Hot' and offered an apology after the clip's content was accused of being racist. The video featured an Old West theme and saw singer Gwen Stefani in Native American-style clothing whilst taking part in native rituals.

It was the Facebook page of For Accurate Indigenous Representation Media (F.A.I.R) who first flagged the video and sent a message to the band, "Gwen Stefani - You may think you are 'Looking Hot' - but you are not. You are just looking like yet another insensitive, entitled, Hipster who is letting her white privilege slip show. And it's oh so unfashionable," read the post. The video was directed by Melina Matsoukas - sound familiar? She helmed the video for Rihanna's S&M, which prompted a lawsuit by David LaChapelle, who accused the pair of appropriating his images without consent. In its apology for the video - which was removed from YouTube and Vevo - the band said, "As a multi-racial band our foundation is built upon both diversity and consideration for other cultures," the statement reads. "Our intention with our new video was never to offend, hurt or trivialize Native American people, their culture or their history." Unsurprisingly, the apology was met with a supportive response on the F.A.I.R Facebook page. "Happy to hear that they took the comment seriously and did something about it," wrote Tammy Copegog Cascagnette, "Hopefully, word will spread and we won't have to keep dealing with this."

For anyone who's still bothered about buying 'Looking Hot,' it's out today, November 6, 2012.

No Doubt singer Gwen Stefani takes a trip out into New York City with her sons Kingston and Zuma Rossdale. She wheels around a vacated pushchair while her children opt for getting around on kids' scooters. However, it's not long before the youngest child, Zuma, grows tired of the two-wheeler and wants to be strapped back into the chair.

The popstar seems to be finding juggling family life with her career a bit of a struggle. '[The band and I] were only able to get together three days a week and, because I had the kids, there was only a limited amount of time', she told entertainment.stv.tv.

According to the New York Post, Stefani also kept forgetting the words to some of the band's songs during a recent performance.

Last year Gwen announced that she would extend her L.A.M.B. and Harajuku Lovers women's clothing lines to a children's line called Harajuku Mini or popular American store Target

All We Are Saying Review


Weak
Here's an intriguing and potentially electrifying documentary concept: Rosanna Arquette gets the lowdown on life in the music biz by chatting with A-list rock stars, including Sting, Steven Tyler, Gwen Stefani, Tom Petty, Yoko Ono, Stevie Nicks, Thom Yorke, Elton John, Mr. and Mrs. Sonic Youth, and a dozen others from the '60s through the '90s. This is gonna be great, right?

Sadly, producer, director, and "experiencer" Arquette did exactly one thing well: the title. All We Are Saying is appropriately a dull, bloated gab marathon. And since she didn't clear the featured artists' music for the movie, it's all talk, no song, not even a few bars from a stage performance. Imagine The Aristocrats without the joke, stretched out over 105 minutes.

Mayor Of The Sunset Strip Review


OK
Like most viewers of his documentary Mayor of the Sunset Strip, director George Hickenlooper (The Man From Elysian Fields), doesn't seem initially all that impressed with little Rodney Bingenheimer. A small, black-clad moppet with a Monkees haircut, Rodney may be this legendary DJ for Los Angeles alt-rock powerhouse KROQ, but how cool could he be? Then there's that scene early on when Rodney's taking us through his house, showing his walls of framed photographs and letters, some quite impressive, when he gets to Elvis's driver's license. You can hear Hickenlooper stop short and ask, "What? How did you get that?" Rodney says off-handedly, "Oh, he gave it to me," as though talking about somebody loaning him a dollar, before tottering away on his little matchstick legs.

To look at the life of Rodney is to look at a near-complete history of several decades of music.
