July 15, 2010 04:10:04 GMT


Whoopi Goldberg has gone on the attack after she was criticized for defending Mel Gibson as a racist, chastising her detractors for expressing their complaints in angry calls to her office secretary. The "Ghost" star sparked controversy on her U.S. talk show "The View" on Monday, July 12 when she insisted Gibson was no racist, despite allegedly using the offensive 'N' word in an expletive-laden, recorded argument with his ex-girlfriend Oksana Grigorieva.

Representatives for Gibson have yet to confirm the authenticity of the tape, but Goldberg stepped up to defend the Braveheart actor's crude language, insisting he was simply being a "bonehead". Goldberg was adamant she did not support his actions but said, "I don't like what he did here, but I know Mel, and I know he's not a racist. He may be a bonehead. I can't say he's a racist having spent time with him in my house with my kids. Make no mistake (he's not a racist)."

Muse Sell Soul With 'Twilight' Soundtrack, Bassist Says

July 15, 2010 03:11:24 GMT


Muse star Chris Wolstenholme was wary of allowing the band to be linked to the "Twilight" movie franchise - because he thought it may be uncool. The group's hit song "Supermassive Black Hole" was featured in the first 2008 movie, and they also contributed tunes to last year's "The Twilight Saga's New Moon" as well as the current installment, "The Twilight Saga's Eclipse".

The British rockers have since credited their inclusion on the soundtracks with helping them find chart success in America - but bassist Wolstenholme wasn't always convinced they should allow their songs to be used. He tells the BBC, "I'm not sure how cool it is to be on those kind of things but sometimes you've just got to get your music out there in different ways. You have to take every opportunity you get over there (America) and sometimes you have to sell your soul."
