Mel Gibson gets Hangover

Mel Gibson gets Hangover October 19, 2010 5:14 am

Mel Gibson will have a cameo in ‘The Hangover 2′.

The troubled actor – who is currently engaged in a custody battle with Oksana Grigorieva, mother of his 11-month-old daughter Lucia – will shoot the role of a Bangkok tattoo artist for the comedy movie directed by Todd Phillips.

A source told the New York Post: “It’s a done deal. Mel will make a cameo as a tattoo artist. Filming is taking place on the Warner Bros. lot, where a Bangkok set has been build, and Mel is expected to film his role in two weeks.

“Then the production movies to Thailand at the end of October.”

Mel was dropped by the William Morris Endeavour agency in July following allegations of assault made my Oksana earlier this year and his next film, ‘The Beaver’ with Jodie Foster, currently has no release date.

‘The Hangover 2′ will see Zach Galifianakis and Bradley Cooper resurrect their characters Alan Garner and Phil Wenneck, but Heather Graham will not be returning to the film as Las Vegas stripper Jade.

A Warner Bros. representative said: “Unfortunately Heather won’t be in the sequel – the way the story unfolds doesn’t allow any room for her character to show up. I don’t want to reveal too much of the film, but once you see it you’ll understand.”

Kings Of Leon out of fashion

Kings Of Leon frontman Caleb Followill hates “f***ing hipsters”.

The ‘Sex On Fire’ singer doesn’t like fashionable bands and says his group have always strived to achieve longevity, rather than indie credibility.

He told Rolling Stone magazine: “I hate f***ing hipsters. Everyone talks about indie this and indie that, but would you really want to be one of those indie bands that makes two albums and disappears?

“That’s just sad. When we signed on with our manager, we all said we wanted to have a box-set career. We’ll gladly be the next generation of bands that aren’t going anywhere.”

The American group found success in their home country with fourth album ‘Only By The Night’, by which time Caleb has admitted they weren’t consciously trying to write big hits.

He said: “The first three albums didn’t do nearly what we thought they would. I thought our second album would be the one that brought everyone around and like ‘ok these guys are actually more than just moustaches’.

“The fourth album we just didn’t care, we were just like we’ll make the record we want to make and it is what it is and it’s a win, win – if it becomes big and breaks us in America then so be it, if not then things can’t get any worse.”

Kings Of Leon’s fifth album ‘Come Around Sundown’ is available now.

The Duke Spirit set to premiere brand new song during NY and LA Shows
 The Duke Spirit set to premiere brand new song during NY and LA Shows
The Duke Spirit will be premiering brand new songs during select shows in New York and LA in the coming weeks. The rock band, fronted by the fierce and enigmatic front-woman Liela Moss, is crossing the Atlantic for select appearances. The Duke Spirit are scheduled to co-headline the KCRW Halloween Masquerade Costume Ball on October 30 in LA before heading cross country for a special performance at Santos Party House in NYC on November 3.

These shows will be fans first opportunity to hear the London quintet’s bold new material before a free three-track EP, entitled Kusama, is released exclusively via iTunes on December 7. Kusama will be available across all digital platforms on December 21 and the full length album is due for release in February 2011 on Shangri-La Music. Download new song “Everybody’s Under Your Spell” via www.thedukespirit.com now!

Known for commanding not only the attention of the music community but the fashion world as well, The Duke Spirit will also play at a private event for Levi’s on November 4. The band was most recently in NYC during Spring Fashion Week, where they played at the Y-3 Adidas show. Designer Philip Lim has cited Leila Moss as his “modern muse” and the late Alexander McQueen was so enchanted by Moss and her style that she served as the inspiration for McQ for Target, his 2009 fashion line for the retail outlet.

The Duke Spirit’s forthcoming 2011 album will be the first release since 2008’s Neptune (Shangri-La Music) which garnered the band critical praise and brought the band into millions of living rooms across America with TV performances on The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Jimmy Kimmel Live and Last Call with Carson Daly. The Los Angeles Times has said of their live shows, “The British quintet plays ragged soul-punk with an absolute firecracker of a lead singer,” and SPIN called their music, “Fully loaded Jesus and Mary Chain-fried fuzz.” Moss’s commanding stage presence is truly unmatched; her all but swaggering demeanor, striking looks and heart wrenching (and heartfelt) voice leaves crowds in the palm of her hand.
Justin Bieber Assault Investigation: Did Bieber Hit 12-Year-Old?

We’ll admit that when we heard the headline of “Justin Bieber assault,” we assumed somebody had beat up the pint-sized pop star.  According to some, however, that’s not how it went down.  The father of a 12-year-old boy claims Justin Bieber assaulted his son at a laser tag facility in British Columbia.

According to the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, “A 12-year-old boy was assaulted in a Richmond entertainment facility. The boy sustained minimal injuries and did not require medical attention at the time.”

However, Biebfans claim that Justin Bieber was acting in self-defense after the boy called him a “faggot.”  Is hitting another person really self-defense in response to words?  Do 12-year-olds really use that term?  These questions still surround the Justin Bieber assault mystery.

In the meantime, put your mind at ease with some Justin Bieber downloads here.
