Keith Urban's 'Without You' Video Features Nicole Kidman

Keith Urban has just debuted a music video for his latest single "Without You". The country music singer filmed it at Soundstage in Hollywood with Chris Hicky sitting behind the lens. Home movie footage including his nuptials with Nicole Kidman and their intimate moment at a beach are included as well.

"We wanted to keep the video simple by trying not to be too literal with the story and making sure we compliment the song," he said. "We had a good time making it so hopefully the fans love it, too. I'm looking forward to seeing everyone out on the road soon."

He listed "Without You" in his 2010 album "Get Closer". Talking about the track, he stated, "It was uncanny how much it was suited to my life. I think if I'd written something like this, I would have felt it wasn't poetically disguised enough. Maybe it's because I didn't write it [that] I was able to hear how authentic and truthful it is."

Kelly Clarkson's New Album Postponed Until September

Although recording session for her new studio album has been done, Kelly Clarkson won't release the CD until September this year. She posted on Facebook, "The album has been recorded but I can't release it until then [September]. I realize that is a long time but that's the best time to release it apparently so I'm sorry for the wait but I promise you it sounds great!"

Kelly recorded the last song in the album on February 25. The "American Idol" graduate shared back then, "This album was influenced by Prince, Tina Turner, Sheryl Crow, Radiohead and there's a little bit of a Country vibe/influence on a couple of songs."

One of her favorite songs in the forthcoming CD is titled "Why Don't You Try". It's produced by Steve Jordan and written by Eric Hutchinson. "[It] is highly influenced by Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder," she wrote. "Thank you Eric Hutchinson for letting me sing your song."

In 2010 while working on the new album, Kelly hooked up with Jason Aldean in a country music song "Don't You Wanna Stay" for his fourth studio effort "My Kinda Party". She showcased it live with him at the 44th Annual CMA Awards last November.

CD Listening Party of Jennifer Hudson's 'I Remember Me'

A week before Jennifer Hudson's new album "I Remember Me" arrives in stores, all of the songs in the CD were made available for free stream on AOL. Twelve in total, the new songs range from slow-riding tracks like "Where You At" to disco-tinged songs such as "Don't Look Down".

She plans to release the new album in the United States on March 22. The title is based on her poem which was later composed into a song and co-written by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder. It represents her journey through the ups and downs. "I named it I Remember Me because I feel like in 29 years I have lead over four different lives," she said.

"And the album is helping to remember the old stuff and celebrate the new. It is a disc of everything I've been through. I don't have much from my old stuff to grasp at, so the only way I remember me is from my voice or the scar on my hand. That's a part of me an I want to remember it all, every minute."

Stunt Expert of 'The Dark Knight' Cleared of Safety Violation Charge

An Oscar-winning stunt expert has been cleared of allegations that health and safety violations led to the death of a cameraman during the making of "The Dark Knight". Conway Wickliffe, 41, was killed on the set of the "Batman" movie in Surrey, England in 2007 after the vehicle he was traveling in hit a tree during the rehearsal of an action sequence.

The father-of-two, who suffered severe head injuries and died at the scene, was said to have not been strapped down during the stunt and special effects boss Christopher Corbould went on trial accused of failing to ensure his safety.

Corbould, who won an Academy Award in February for his work on "Inception", insisted proper measures were taken and a jury at Guildford Crown Court in England agreed on Monday, March 14, by finding him not guilty of breaching health and safety regulations.

Corbould's solicitor Chris Humphreys confirmed the Oscar-winner was happy with the verdict, telling reporters, "We always thought from the beginning that this was an ill-conceived and misguided prosecution by the HSE [Health and Safety Executive]. The police decided within two weeks of this tragic accident that there was no-one to blame and it was a tragic accident."

"World-class actors do not put their livelihoods and wellbeing in the hands of people that don't put their health and safety first. Directors and producers do not entrust that kind of money to someone that doesn't put safety first."

New 'X-Men: First Class' International Trailer Focuses More on Magneto

Another sneak peek video for "X-Men: First Class" has been debuted to tide fans over the release of the movie. Dubbed in Russian, the new international trailer has more footage with Michael Fassbender's Erik Lensherr.

Young Erik is seen expressing his frustration with his mutant powers, while his softer side is exposed when older Erik sheds some tears in another scene. Also, there is a glimpse of Erik getting ready to do his thing while donning the early Magneto helmet.

Other fresh scenes give preview to Caleb Landry Jones' Sean Cassidy/Banshee as he deals with his power. He is showing off his mutant vocal abilities in front of his friends, and there is a quick shot of him flying through the air.

"X-Men: First Class" will chart the epic beginning of the X-Men saga, when Charles Xavier and Erik Lensherr were two young men discovering their powers for the first time. They were working together with other Mutants to stop Armageddon. In the process, a grave rift between them opened, which began the eternal war between Magneto's Brotherhood and Professor X's X-Men.

James McAvoy takes the other key role, Charles, with Jennifer Lawrence, Rose Byrne, Nicholas Hoult, January Jones and Kevin Bacon playing other mutant characters. Coming from director Matthew Vaughn, the action sci-fi movie will be unleashed in U.S. cinemas on June 3.

'Scream 4' Images Feature Lucy Hale and Bloody Victim

A batch of new "Scream 4" pictures hit the web a month before the movie will be played in U.S. theaters. One of them gives a look at Lucy Hale, who lands a cameo role, as she holds a knife and points it to someone/something unseen.

Another image is gory and more spoilery as it shows a hung body which is likely Ghostface's victim. Sheriff Dewey and other officers are pictured examining the bloody crime scene. Meanwhile, the serial killer is featured in three other shots with one of them giving a look at Ghostface inside a room which window is stained with bloody handprints.

The "Nasty" hitmaker has spoken of her desire to concentrate on her acting career, but recently thrilled fans when she announced she would be hitting the road on her new "Number Ones: Up Close and Personal Tour" later in 2011.

However, Jackson isn't abandoning her film career, she has negotiated a contract with studio chiefs at Lionsgate to pick and produce a series of movies.

Justin Bieber Goofs Around With His Wax Figure

Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber has got the chance to stand next to and strike playful poses with his very own wax figure. The "Baby" hitmaker took some time off his My World Tour in Europe on Tuesday, March 15, and stopped by Madame Tussauds in London for the unveiling ceremony of his life-like replica.

At the special event, the 17-year-old singer pretended to box with as well as hugged his likeness, which is dressed in a red and black checked shirt and black jeans, for the press. Of the waxwork, he said, "It's pretty incredible to see." He was quick to add a joke, quipping "As you can see, you know, I'm at least six feet taller than this guy."

Pretty excited about his replica, Justin also tweeted several photos of him and the statue. In a caption of one posting, he wrote, "TWINS! Lol." In another, he joked, "knew @studiomama had more kids! me and my mom and lil bro." Afterward, he tweeted, "thanks to the fans and @TussaudsLondon for today. from staring thru the glass to being made in wax inside..."

The London wax figure was one of three Bieber replicas being unveiled on Tuesday. Two others were simultaneously unveiled at Madame Tussauds museums in Amsterdam and New York. The New York figure sports a black vest and black Balenciaga pants and was surrounded by the replicas of the Obamas, John F. Kennedy, Ghandi and Princess Diana among others.

The life-like replica's not an identical match to Justin since he has changed quickly over the eight months the figure was made. Putting that into consideration, spokeswoman for the museum, Liz Edwards, explained, "So we really wanted to make sure we made a 'moment in time' figure. But it's the hair that everyone is paying the biggest attention to. So, I'd say it's the hair that's been the biggest challenge." 

'Long-Distance Relationship' Triggers Vanessa Hudgens and Zac Efron's Split

Vanessa Hudgens has blamed her busy schedule for her split from longtime boyfriend Zac Efron, revealing the couple struggled to maintain a "long-distance relationship". The "High School Musical 3: Senior Year" co-stars' three-year romance came to an end in December 2010, but rumors of a reunion surfaced just weeks later when they were spotted together in a nightclub, and Hudgens also admitted they were "figuring things out".

Hudgens has now confirmed they are definitely not back together and explained the reasons for the break-up, insisting their acting roles kept them apart. She tells Shape magazine, "Long-distance relationships are hard no matter what. When you don't have face-to-face time, it's just different. Having an iPhone helped, but it wasn't the same."

But the singer-actress is adamant she will always have fond memories of her relationship with Efron, adding, "We grew up together. It was nice to have someone to share all of those experiences with. It was a good thing. The relationship kept me grounded, and because I was with someone who knew me so well, I didn't need to try to be someone I'm not."

British singer Lily Allen has defended Peaches Geldof following scathing reviews of the socialite's new TV chat show, insisting critics should "give her a break". Bob Geldof's daughter made her hosting debut when she launched new U.K. program "OMG!" earlier in March.

The show has been met with mixed reactions, with some critics slating the format as "shockingly bad". One unimpressed fan wrote to Allen on Twitter, "Lets (sic) hope that OMG show becomes 'canned Peaches' very soon... lol (laugh out loud)."

But instead of condoning the comments, Allen responded by slamming the user for making the suggestion. She writes back, "You sound very bitter, give her a break. She's not hurting anyone... Why would you want that? You must be jealous."

A porn star who became famous for partying with Charlie Sheen has been hospitalized after cops were called to investigate an alleged suicide attempt. Kacey Jordan was one of five adult actresses who attended a wild bash at the "Two and a Half Men" star's Los Angeles home in January. Sheen was subsequently taken to hospital to receive treatment for a hernia.

The actress is said to have updated her Twitter page with worrying messages suggesting she was trying to take her own life, and cops allegedly found her surrounded by pill bottles, broken glass and alcohol, according to TMZ.

Jordan is alleged to have been hospitalized for psychiatric tests after attempting to slash her arms with a corkscrew while talking to police officers. And she appears to blame Sheen for her demise, writing on Twitter, "Those 16 hours I was with charlie sheen... messed me up... I can't get that image out of my head... I think I keep trying to feel his pain."

"I'm soooo bored in this hospital bed!," she later updated her blog with a new post from her treatment room. "I wanna have someone save me..."

The "Sonny with a Chance" star has recently spoken out about the new inks. In a new video message, she revealed that her fans are the inspiration behind one of the body arts.

"So I went ahead and I got a little heart tattoo on my wrist." Pointing to her right wrist, she said, "Together they say 'Stay Strong,' but this one has a heart."

On his client's reaction, the lawyer said, "Vanessa is deeply upset and angered that these old photos, which were taken years ago, continue to resurface."

In the statement regarding the leaked pictures, Vanessa's lawyer additionally pointed out, "It is particularly disturbing that whoever got hold of these private photos seems to be intent on illegally leaking them out over a long period of time."

Just recently, a number of photos showing off Vanessa locking lips with "Zoey 101" actress Alexa Nikolas have hit the web via Drunken Stepfather. Along with the racy images, a series of other revealing images of the former "High School Musical" beauty were also shared. Three of which feature her appearing topless.

The former girlfriend of Zac Efron has been hit with similar scandal in 2007 and 2009.

Anderson Cooper is apparently considered as a hot commodity these days. PopEater has brought up a report on Tuesday, March 15 that a $10,000 offer has been made by Playgirl to anyone who can provide them with a naked picture of the CNN news anchor.

Confirming the lucrative offer was the adult magazine's spokesman Daniel Nardicio. Revealing one reason why the magazine made the offer, he told the gossip site that the 43-year-old newsman has topped the magazine's list of "Top 10 Guys We Want to See Naked," which will appear in its March issue.

The former model for Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein follows in the footsteps of the late Walter Cronkite, who lent his voice to the 1995 revival.

Rihanna Fuming After Father Sold Tales and Family Photos

Rihanna has taken aim at her father for selling tall tales and candid family photos to the tabloids. In a revealing new Vogue magazine interview, the Bajan beauty admits her father's actions make her question exactly what she means to him.

"It's really strange... You grow up with your father, you know him, you are part of him, for goodness sakes!" she says. "And then he does something so bizarre that I can't begin to wrap my mind around it. You hear these horror stories about people going behind people's backs and doing strange things, but you always think, 'Not my family. My father would never do that to me.' "

And the "Umbrella" singer was particularly upset with what her father told the media after she went into hiding following her assault at the hands of ex-boyfriend Chris Brown. Rihanna adds, "My dad went to the press and just told them a bunch of lies, because he hadn't talked to me after... that whole thing."

"He never called to find out how I was doing, if I was alive, nothing. He just never called. He went straight to the press and got a cheque."

Nikki Sixx Explodes Over Nude Images' Deletion on Facebook

Rocker Nikki Sixx has blasted Facebook officials for deleting naked images he took of quirky models from his profile page. The Motley Crue bass player-turned-radio presenter and photographer thought fans would appreciate his arty shots when he posted them online, and he's appalled by Facebook censorship.

"I started by posting one of the photos from my book, it was actually an outtake, a way to give fans something that won't be in the book," he tells Spinner. "It was this girl, Farah, she's about 350 pounds and she saw her mother kill herself and was put out on the streets for prostitution and she ended up doing pornography."

"I was looking for a woman that would pose nude that was extremely overweight, there's a bunch of messages behind that. So I posted this nude picture of her and it was deleted by Facebook. And I went, 'Oh, you can't put art on Facebook?' So then I posted another photo that I shot of a guy who's transgender. So he had breasts, but he's still a guy."

That was also removed, and when Sixx tried to post another photo he had taken of a burn victim, the powers that be on Facebook warned him to stop. He adds, "It was also deleted saying, 'Final notice, you can't post any more of your photos.' "

Rihanna Puts Personal Life in Music After Her Fight With Chris Brown

The "Umbrella" hitmaker was beaten black and blue by then-boyfriend Chris Brown, who is still serving his punishment for the attack, and the couple split immediately after the fight. But Rihanna insists the drama gave her an edge that she didn't have before.

She tells Vogue magazine, "It actually gave me a lot of liberation. What I mean is, I was able to tap into the personal part of my music. I started to tell stories through my music that were actually my stories. My album before that, there was still a little bit of protection, there was still an innocence to me. And what that time in my life did was kind of wake people up - it's not all a bed of roses. My life is like yours."

"It made me look at the world in a much bigger way because my life was suddenly superduper magnified; all eyes were on me. I needed that in my life to know how to say, 'F**k off!' To know how to keep my head high even in the worst of situations. I keep using the word unapologetic, but there's a freedom that has come with all of that. Where you feel like you don't have to make an excuse for being yourself."

Jane Lynch, Anne Hathaway Urge U.S. President to Support Gay Marriage

Stars including Jane Lynch, Anne Hathaway and Ellen DeGeneres have stepped up a campaign for gay rights by writing a letter to U.S. President Barack Obama, urging him to support same-sex marriage. The trio is among a number of celebrities backing the Say I Do drive by the Freedom To Marry group, which aims to legalize gay unions throughout America.

Martin Sheen, Eric McCormack, Rufus Wainwright and Melissa Etheridge have also signed the letter to the president, which calls on the politician to clarify his stance on same-sex weddings and bring an end to "exclusion from marriage" for homosexuals, according to the Los Angeles Times.

"Marriage is the coming together of two lives, marked by a public promise of love and responsibility in front of friends and family," the letter reads. "And marriage brings not only public respect and personal significance, but also a safety net of legal protections, rights, and responsibilities for which there is no substitute."

"My wife and I were married in May of 2010, and I can say without a doubt that marriage matters...," lesbian actress Lynch, who married her long term partner Dr. Lara Embry in 2010, writes. "As President Obama continues his journey toward recognizing our right to equal taxation, protection and dignity under the law, I encourage him to listen to gay and lesbian couples and families so he can better understand how marriage equality affects us all."

Usher's Ex-Wife Lashes Out at Sex Tape Report

Usher and his ex-wife, Tameka Foster, have been hit with a sex tape scandal. TMZ reported that the hardcore footage is being shopped around, and they have got a hold of a short video and two photos. In light of the report, Tameka herself reached out to and made it clear that making sex tape is not her style.

In her statement, the 40-year-old hair stylist first pointed out the obvious, "Yes, I have had sex with my [ex] husband. Multiple times." She went on to say, "Would I sanction a sextape being out? Absolutely not. I am a mother and entrepreneur. Sex tapes or pornography would not be my lane. I have no desire to be seen in that way."

I have copulated w/my husband! Why is this news again?? #ConfusedTweet. End of discussion." To a fan, she also shared, "I cant stress over what I cant change. Hey I was married, happily. So theres a chance that we might.... Its silly 'news' 2 me."

Earlier in the day, TMZ reported that sources close to Usher would not confirm that a sex tape featuring the "OMG" hitmaker indeed exists. Nonetheless, they did suggest that the video TMZ obtained from someone claiming to have the sex tape could have been among the items stolen from the star's car back in December 2009, which included two laptop computers.

Troubled Mel Gibson to Be Grandfather Again

The good news follows Gibson's court appearance on Friday, March 11, when the actor-director was sentenced to three years probation and ordered to undergo a year of counseling after pleading no contest to a charge of simple misdemeanor battery.

The embattled star's latest legal woe stems from accusations filed against him by his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva, who alleged Gibson attacked her during a heated argument in January 2010. The former couple has been locked in a war of words over custody of their baby daughter Lucia since splitting in 2010.

Photo of Shakira Kissing Gerard Pique Made Magazine Cover

Shakira has been caught kissing rumored boyfriend Gerard Pique. While she rarely made a public outing with the Barcelona star ever since they were romantically linked in 2010, the "Gypsy" singer is featured on the cover of Colombian magazine Caras closing her eyes and sharing a passionate kiss with him.

The cover shot put an end to months of speculation whether Columbian singer is romantically involved with the 24-year-old sportsman. The pair first met in spring 2010 while shooting a music video for the official track of 2010 World Cup, "Waka Waka (This Time for Africa)". It was said that since then, they have enjoyed a string of secret meetings.

Both sides have shot down reports of them being romantically involved. Shakira said at a previous press conference in Barcelona, "You shouldn't take any notice of waka-rumours," while Gerard recently said, "We're just friends. There's nothing more to it." Still, photos of the twosome holding hands as they left a restaurant in Barcelona surfaced just last month.

Shakira herself announced her separation from longtime beau Antonio de la Rua in January. In a joint statement, she said, "During our almost 11 years together we have loved each other deeply, taken care of each other and stood by one another. They have been the most wonderful years of our lives, and thanks to that love and the respect we have shared for one another, we have been an exceptional couple and partners."

Masi Oka 'Heartbroken' by Japan Disaster

Former "Heroes" star Masi Oka is still coming to terms with the devastation of last week's earthquake and tsunami in his native Japan, which came immediately after he celebrated his homeland at a party in Los Angeles.

The actor's Tokyo-based family are all well and accounted for, but a lot of his friends are still trying to track down relatives following the disaster, which has so far claimed the lives of 2,800 people.

Oka admits he's "heartbroken" by the images of death and destruction he has been seeing on TV over the weekend as a desperate clean-up operation begins, and he may fly out to Japan this week to see if there's anything he can do. He tells U.S. news show Access Hollywood Live, "I was in Japan about a week and a half ago and I was actually supposed to go again this Wednesday, which I still might."

The actor reveals he was at a party with Japanese friends just before the tragedy struck, "I was ironically celebrating a birthday party with a lot of my Japanese friends... I came home, I was in a conference call with my colleagues in Japan [and] after I got off, my mum says, 'Watch the news...' I see all these images... It was really surreal...It's very overwhelming."

But he's very proud of his countrymen and women as they begin the process of piecing their lives back together. He adds, "There's definitely a sense of community, a oneness with Japanese people and there's a lot of pride in trying to help each other as well as trying not to burden the people around you... They don't want to be a bother to other folks."

Oka is now urging fans to pray for Japan and give generously to the Red Cross, to boost the charity's relief efforts. He states, "We're all connected as human beings and this is something that we have to work [on] together."
