No Perks for Cox in "November"

July 22, 2005 03:24:18 GMT

No Perks?! It's okay for actress Courteney Cox. "I enjoy perks at home, so I don't mind falling over or getting dirty at work. I wanted to make November because it's fascinating, confusing, ambiguous, eerie and makes you think." That's really the reason that pep up Cox to star in the director Gregory Harrison forthcoming thriller "November," despite that fact that she's getting no perks due to the budget matter.

The film had a paltry $150,000 allowance and just 15 days to shoot, during which Cox "had to eat with the crew, lie on dirty floors and shoot four emotionally traumatic scenes in 12 hours. But she was so ready to be involved," Harrison explained. What's more, the actress also had no doubt shooting dangerous scenes without a stunt double. What a true actress Cox is?!

Single Goddess

July 22, 2005 02:32:05 GMT

Mariah Carey really is a single goddess. If you need a verification you can get one as her single "We Belong Together" was No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 for an eighth week Wednesday and also ruled the Pop 100 and Hot R&B Hip-Hop charts. Thus, it needless to raise more complaint about the fact. Along with Carey, Rihanna's "Pon de Replay," moved up to No. 2 on Hot 100, while Gwen Stefani's "Hollaback Girl" holding its spot at No. 3.

Rounding the Hot 100 at No. 4 was the The Pussycat Dolls' "Don't Cha" featuring Busta Rhymes. Close behind was the Black Eyed Peas' "Don't Phunk with My Heart" at No. 5 and Missy Elliott's "Lose Control" with Ciara at No. 6. Inferior to all was Fat Man Scoop, which soon followed by Kelly Clarkson's "Behind Those Hazel Eyes" at No. 7. Meanwhile, rapper Bow Wow scored the first top 10 Hot 100 single of his career with the No. 8 "Let Me Hold You" featuring Omarion.
