August 14, 2013 09:26:27 GMT


Almost two months after she released the marriage anthem "Tie It Up", "American idol" season one champion Kelly Clarkson unveils its wedding-themed music video. Real-life couple Clarkson and her fiance Brandon Blackstock even graced the single's cover art which they shot last month, where Blackstock's arm was securely tied to his fiancee dressed in a wedding gown and holding a bouquet.

The music video, meanwhile, ends with Clarkson winning the bouquet toss but not after she first rocks the wedding reception. Wedding images appear throughout the almost three-minute clip, showing different couples as they take their vows and well into their wedding after-parties. From the rings to the cake, bridesmaids and groomsmen, it is a collage of joyous photos and footage rolled together to complement the fun, country tune.

Stephen Colbert Reveals Drama Behind Daft Punk Cancellation

August 14, 2013 07:31:18 GMT


It could just as easily be assumed that after Stephen Colbert aired his "StePhest Colbchella '013" slam against no-show Daft Punk on his show last week, the TV host had already vented out his frustration over the "Get Lucky" hit makers. It turns out the 49-year-old comedian still had a few more revelations about the cancellation, which he unleashed in an interview on Paul Mercurio's podcast.

After the French electronic music duo told the show that they wouldn't talk or perform during their scheduled appearance on "The Colbert Report", the writers had asked Colbert if he had wanted to just cancel, but he took it as a challenge, conjuring up ideas on how to work around the restrictions. Either the pair could just nod along as he performed a six-minute monologue or played that now infamous all-star dance party video, which would not have seen the light of day had the duo chosen to appear on the show, since they were apparently "uncomfortable" with it.

This is why the story is different from his.

"He's a brilliant man and I respect his work, but he wasn't available to us as a resource, so his account isn't going to be our account because we don't know exactly what it was," the leading man in the Joshua Michael Stern biopic says.

Report: Christian Bale Still Wanted as Batman, Offered $60M to Return

August 14, 2013 02:11:21 GMT

Is there still a chance for fans to see Christian Bale suit up as Batman again despite his retirement announcement? According to report from The Sun (via Badass Digest), the answer is yes. The tabloid claims that Warner Bros. is still trying to change the actor's mind by offering him a great $60 million deal to return in the Superman-Batman movie.

Bale, of course, fits all of the reported requirements. He is 39 and already an established actor in movie industry. However, considering that the English star once said he wanted to return only if Christopher Nolan was back as director, it is safe to say that Zack Snyder, the man behind the lens for the upcoming "Man of Steel" follow-up, might have to find someone else.
