Covenant News- The Latest Industry & Social News From the Entertainment & Media Capital of the Universe, HOLLYWOOD, Los Angeles.CA. Thur,19 June 2008


Everyone wants a piece of the promised Timbaland.

Why? “I’m always changing up the style,” says the superproducer.

“Once you think you’ve got me down pat, I’m switching it up.”
So true.
He’s worked syncopated magic on everyone from Björk and Beck to Justin Timberlake and, most recently, Madonna.

And Timbaland’s fashion sense is equally ahead of the curve.

Onstage, he flaunts classic hip-hop grit in sweatshirts and baggy shorts.
But he also cleans up nicely, looking downright dapper in Alexander McQueen, Louis Vuitton and Gucci.

Poster Girl

Arianna Huffington

With arguably the most popular political site on the Web, an endless roster of high-powered bloggers and a smart new book, Arianna Huffington is more influential than ever.

Polished yet relaxed, her copper hair casually blown dry, not coiffed in the helmet of days gone by, Arianna Huffington dips into her blueberries and yogurt as if she has all the time in the world.

We’re talking in her Italianate mansion in the Brentwood section of Los Angeles, and though it’s a Sunday, she’s been up since 6 a.m., scouring the morning headlines;
hiking with Norman Lear’s wife, Lyn;
lunching with David Geffen;
and correcting the galleys of her 12th book, Right Is Wrong, due out in May, in which she pours scorn on her former political allies.

“There’s no question that it’s harder to dismiss me or write a caricature now,” says Huffington, who has spent much of her life in the public gaze, and not without controversy.
Over the years, she’s had various incarnations—Cambridge scholar, best-selling author, socialite, Republican wife, conservative pundit, self-help guru and liberal activist.
But there’s little doubt that she’s ideally cast in her latest role: editor in chief of the Huffington Post, the news Web site and group blog whose edgy commentary has made it a must-read in liberal circles.

In person, the statuesque Huffington is softer and less imposing than she appears on TV.
Dressed in a black pantsuit and a blouse with a plunging neckline, she has a ready laugh and the ability to create an instant intimacy.
“She can do anything—give a speech, a toast, tell a story,” says director and writer Nora Ephron, a longtime friend.
“But she can also sit there and make you think you’re the only person on the planet.”
Known for her sharp wit and her trademark Gabor-sister accent, “she’s as fast on her feet as any comedian,” says Ephron, who auditioned Huffington for a role in her 1998 film, You’ve Got Mail, after spotting her on TV debating liberal poster boy Al Franken.
“She was a Republican then, but for me, being funny trumps everything.” (Still, she wasn’t cast.)
Chez Huffington, there’s no separation between life and work:
Her two daughters, Christina, 18, and Isabella, 16, a housekeeper and assorted assistants come and go through the Henry Higgins–style library, crammed with family photos, books, an oversize desk and numerous laptops logged on to the HuffPo, as it’s increasingly known.
Central command is up the circular stairway in the corner, past the landing and hidden behind the sliding bookcase.
Here, in the Huffington Post’s West Coast bureau, an office resembling a college dorm room, four staffers keep tabs on the traffic.
(The editorial office is in Manhattan.)
Huffington jokes with them as she clicks on to 23/6, a new comedy site financed by Barry Diller’s IAC, in which the Huffington Post is a partner.
It’s an unlikely sight:
a 57-year-old woman giddily surfing political campaign-ad parodies with her tech-savvy, twentysomething cohorts.

After a month long People for The Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) poll, Anthony Kiedis and Leona Lewis were crowned the world’s Sexiest Vegetarians.

Tens of thousands of animal lovers voted the pair into the top spots as part of an annual search for veggie vamps and vixens on website

A vegetarian since the 1980s, Kiedis recently went vegan after learning about theworldwide depletion of fish in the oceans and after his baby’s doctor recommended ahealthy vegan diet for the child

He recently told PETA bosses,

Soon after I went vegan, I saw some documentary footage of what happens in the factory farming of cows…

It sealed the deal.

Lewis adds,

I am vegetarian so I don’t have clothes, shoes, or bags made from leather or suede or any animal products…

I’m on a mission.
I am totally against animal cruelty.

Kid Rock won’t allow his fabulous (vomits) music to be sold on iTunes because he doesn’t believe that Apple pay artists enough for their downloads.

Or maybe it’s because no one actually buys his music period.

He told BBC News,

It’s based on an old system where iTunes takes the money, the record company takes the money and they don’t give it to the artists.

Back in the day, we all know the stories of the Otis Reddings and Chuck Berrys and Fats Dominos who never got paid.
So the internet was an opportunity for everyone to be treated fairly, for the consumer to get a fair price, for the artist to be paid fairly, for the record companies to make some money.

I will be on iTunes eventually because I can’t avoid it, but I like to always stick to my guns and prove a point and do something original and because I believe in it.

The guy who wrote "The Godfather" says all his stories went into a big-bucks video game --
and all he came out with was d*** in his hands.
The estate of Mario Puzo --
repped by the Don of Hollywood lawyers, Bert Fields --
is making Paramount Pictures an offer it might or might not refuse, asking for some of the coin from the "Godfather" video game.
They want more than a million bucks, saying it was Puzo that made the game huge.
No word in the lawsuit whether sleeping fish or bodyless horses will be part of the legal defense.
Paramount hasn't responded.

“Fuck Soulja Boy!
Eat a dick!

This ni–a single handedly killed Hip Hop.
That shit is such garbage man.
We came all the way from Rakim, we came all the way from Das EFX, we came all the way from motherfuckers flowing like Big Daddy Kane and Ice Cube, and you come with that Superman shit?
That shit is garbage.
Hurricane (Chris) take them fuoking beads out of your hair
Man up.

Get ready!

A second Mariah Carey perfume is scheduled to hit the stores in September.

It's going to be called Luscious Pink by Mariah Carey.

Not just pink, but LUSCIOUS pink!

The new scent will have 'notes of Tahitian tiare flower —
just like the original M by Mariah Carey scent —
but Mimi will change it up with a bouquet of lily of the valley, pink peony and a touch of white musk'.

Why a second perfume?

Mimi says, "Launching my first perfume was such an amazing experience that it has inspired me to expand my fragrance collection."

We bet it will sell well at Sears!

If you don't want any spoilers for Madonna's new tour, then do not CL ICK HERE to look at the latest draft of the set list, given to us by a very good source.

Excellent song selection, we say!!!

Maddie is pulling out some songs she hasn't performed since the '80s!!!!!!

Yes! Yes! Yes!
