Fry Stuns Labour Gala As He Hits Out At Sex Abuse Investigation ...

Ed Miliband rebukes TV star after he attacks former DPP

Stephen Fry left an audience in shocked silence at a Labour fundraiser attended by Ed Miliband by publicly criticising the Operation Yewtree investigation into historic sex abuse.

The Labour-supporting comedian, who was hosting the event, complained that less than 50 per cent of those people held under Yewtree have been found guilty and that those who make false accusations should be prosecuted.

But last night Mr Miliband’s office issued a rebuke to Mr Fry by insisting that the party fully supported Yewtree and making clear that Mr Miliband’s ‘thoughts were with the victims’.

Mr Fry singled out for criticism Keir Starmer, the former Director of Public Prosecutions (DPP), who was present at the gala dinner last Wednesday.

Mr Starmer was the architect of the successful prosecutions under Yewtree – the Scotland Yard operation spawned by the Jimmy Savile abuse scandal – of entertainer Rolf Harris, publicity guru Max Clifford and TV presenter Stuart Hall.

But Yewtree has also led to failed prosecutions against entertainers including Coronation Street star William Roache. And cases were dropped against comedians Freddie Starr, Jim Davidson and Jimmy Tarbuck after months of destructive publicity.

Mr Fry’s friend, the BBC DJ Paul Gambaccini, was arrested in October as part of Operation Yewtree on suspicion of historical sexual offences, but was released on bail and has never been charged with any offence.

Mr Fry, 56, is understood to be infuriated that the failure to charge Mr Gambaccini has received significantly less publicity than his arrest, leaving an unfair stain on his character.

Grumpy Welsh Prince Becomes Full-Time NMTB Host

Iconic pop quiz Never Mind the Buzzcocks returns to BBC Two later this year with a brand new full-time host - Welsh comedian, Rhod Gilbert. He will join regular team captains Noel Fielding and Phill Jupitus for the 28th series of the anarchic comedy pop quiz show.

A sell-out sensation at the Edinburgh Festival every year from 2005-2012, Rhod is a hugely successful stand-up comedian - his debut live DVD, released in 2009, was that year's fastest selling debut stand-up DVD.

Rhod's wealth of music and comedy knowledge and his experience of guest hosting on Buzzcocks will also stand him in good stead with the powerhouse panel.

Rhod Gilbert says: “After my first Buzzcocks in 2009, I was told I was in with a shout to take over as regular host, and now, just five years later, I got the call. It has all happened so fast. Never Mind the Buzzcocks is one of those rare shows that feels like it belongs on our screens. It's an institution, in a good way. It's a great honour to be asked to take the reins full time and to hang out with Noel and Phill, and I'm equally excited and nervous about adding my name to those who have hosted it in the past."

Bryan Singer Turns Attention To New Comic Book Property; Will He Still Direct 'X-Men: Apocalypse'?

Though his future with the X-Men franchise is in doubt following accusations of sexual assault, X-Men: Days of Future Past Bryan Singer has in no way been blacklisted in Hollywood and is in fact already pushing forward with another high-profile comic-book property. According to The Tracking Board, Singer is currently developing action fantasy Age of Heroes through his Bad Hat Harry Productions banner.

Based on the ’90s comic series and recent novel of the same name by James Hudnall, Age of Heroes centers on a band of misfits in a fantasy land that is ruled over by gods. But when those all-powerful beings disappear, the misfits are forced to step up and defend their land against new threars. The more complete, official synopsis reads as follows: "When the gods were born, they remade the world in the image of their dreams. This was known as the Age of Gods. When man was created along with other races of beings, fantastic cities were raised, insane magics were forged and unimaginable wars were fought, as the gods battled for supremacy over all creation. This was known as the Age of Wonders. When the gods fled and man was left to make his way in a world full of monsters and arcane magic, some rose up to right wrongs and create justice. This was known as The Age of Heroes."

Newcomer Alex Hollister will write the script. In addition to Singer, Marc Berliner is also attached to produce, as are David Engel and Stephen Emery through their Circle of Confusion company. No word yet on whether Singer also plans to direct Age of Heroes.

There’s also still no official word on whether Singer will be helming X-Men: Apocalypse, Fox’s 2016-slotted Days of Future Past follow-up. He’s currently working on developing the film for Fox, but the recent allegation against him are likely causing studio execs to hesitate in handing him the gig officially (not that his legal troubles appear to have had any effect on the box office earnings of Days of Future Past).

Jermaine Dupri: "The Elusive Chanteuse will slay!"

Long time collaborator Jermaine Dupri is confident that Mariah Carey has another hit on her hands. Despite having the lowest first week sales of her career with Me. I Am Mariah... The Elusive Chanteuse selling 58,000 copies, J.D. does not seem disappointed. He has faith that his executively produced project will build over time.

"I actually feel like it's probably one of her best albums she's ever made," he told Rap-Up TV at the ASCAP Rhythm & Soul Music Awards. "I'm excited to see where the album ends up. I tell a lot of people, this era of music and this genre, they don't understand records that come out small and sell a lot of records."

The So So Def founder is familiar with these types of situations. J.D.who helped manage the careers of other performers such as Kris Kross and Shad Moss (formerly known as Bow Wow) explained that they experienced something similar before going on to sell millions. "So it's like the first-week sales sometimes don't really matter," he said. "I think people gotta start understanding. If you have a plan and you can put the plan in play, you just gotta keep livin' it out."

Mariah plans to begin shooting the video for her single "You Don't Know What to Do" featuring Wale, which was produced by Dupri.

SEE IT: Nine Inch Nails song soothes crying baby

This rebel baby will cry you a river — until she hears Nine Inch Nails. Hilarious footage sees the tiny toddler weeping away before her pop puts on a spot of industrial rock.

"Oh," she mumbles at hearing the unusual lullaby, before transforming into the happiest infant alive. Giggling and smiling away, she then starts swaying her body to the beat.

Gary Kennedy uploaded the amusing clip to YouTube — called "How to Stop a Baby Crying with Nine Inch Nails" — last month. It's unclear exactly where the footage was filmed, but it's since gone viral with more than 68,000 views.

"For whatever reason this song always makes her happy," the proud dad wrote in the video's description. The song is 'Copy Of A' by Nine Inch Nails. It's worth the buck or two for the track if it works this well," he said. "I thank Trent Reznor for turning my crying child into a smiling dancer," he added.

Nickelodeon Cancels Sam & Cat! There Will Be No Season Two!

Well it seems that Nickelodeon has indeed cancelled Sam & Cat.

A combined spin-off of Victorious and iCarly, Sam & Cat finds Sam Puckett and Cat Valentine becoming friends and roommates. To make money they start an after-school babysitting business. Maree Cheatham, Cameron Ocasio, and Zoran Korach co-star.

The series was initially picked up for 20 episodes and they started airing in June 2013. It was such a big hit that the cable channel ordered 20 more after just one month of airings.

The series was on track to be renewed for a second season but some backstage issues derailed Sam & Cat towards the end of its first year, resulting in only 36 episodes being produced.

The sitcom was later put on permanent hiatus by Nickelodeom. Well, they appear to have quietly made that decision and the show is over.

The channel recently started airing promos that just two episodes remain. One runs tonight — #WeStealARockStar — while the series finale will air next Saturday, titled #GettinWiggy.

Marc Jacobs' 'Daisy Dream' takes on the style of Sofia Coppola's 'The Virgin Suicides'

Sofia Copoala's stylish, iconic film "The Virgin Suicides" was released 15 years ago but is still influences fashion today.


If you aren't familiar, the film, starring Kirsten Dunst tells of the events surrounding the lives of five sisters in an upper-middle class suburb of Detroit during the 1970s. After the youngest sister makes an initial attempt at suicide, the sisters are put under close scrutiny by their parents, eventually being put into near-confinement, which leads to increasingly depressive and isolated behaviour.

Just this year, Coppola revisited the film's style directing a "Virgin Suicides"-like ad campaign for Marc Jacobs' new fragrance, "Daisy Dream." The 30-second video shows model Antoino Wesseloh wearing a gauzy white dress, lying in a field of daisies. Sleigh Bells provides the soundtrack.

Tonight Show Superlatives: 2014 World Cup

Brazil's World Cup 2014 will be over come tomorrow night with either Argentina or Germany emerging as world champions, thus bringing to a close the past month of world cup madness, which has been glorious and given us plenty of excuses to call out of work.

Although there may only be one winner, last night Jimmy Fallon found the time to make both teams winners, so-to-speak, in this World Cup 2014 edition of The Tonight Show's "Superlatives." Watch as players from both teams, like Argentina's Lionel Messi, or Germany's Manuel Neuer, get these unorthodox awards.
