Prince: The Internet is dead

The music industry might be embracing digital and online technology, but Prince is not convinced that it’s a good thing.

"The Internet's completely over,” Prince told British tabloid publication, The Mirror, in his first newspaper interview in 10 years. “I don't see why I should give my new music to iTunes or anyone else. They won't pay me an advance for it and then they get angry when they can't get it.”

Prince is currently set to release his latest album, “20Ten,” for free through various European print media, including the Daily Mirror and its Scottish affiliate, the Daily Record. Fans can snag their copy this Saturday via the different press outlets, but you they certainly won’t find any of the new material online. FULL POST

Joseph Gordon-Levitt isn't jaded

Joseph Gordon-Levitt has come a long way since his days as a child star on “3rd Rock From the Sun,” “10 Things I Hate About You” and “Angels in the Outfield.”

And the 29-year-old “500 Days of Summer” star isn’t done pushing the envelope. Gordon-Levitt will appear alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and Ellen Page in Christopher Nolan’s “Inception,” due out July 16.

“When you work on big movies, everybody gets jaded, myself included, and you have to remind yourself: If we were 10 years old, this would be pretty damn exciting. Joe never seems to forget that,” Nolan told Details. FULL POST

Not 'Back to the Future' Day - yet

So apparently somebody at the British website TotalFilm tweeted yesterday that the date July 6, 2010, was the date input by Doc Brown in "Back to the Future" for heading into the future, making Tuesday "Future Day."

And then - to paraphrase Winston Churchill - the tweet worked its way around the Web before the truth could turn its flux capacitor on.

When the error was pointed out, TotalFilm apologized - sort of. Though admitting they got the date wrong, the website Photoshopped a screengrab ... which caused yet more problems when IT made its way around the Web.

Bristol Palin makes her acting debut

Bristol Palin’s acting debut didn’t require much acting.

The 19-year-old mother played herself on last night’s episode of “Secret Life of the American Teenager.” Palin and the show’s main character, Amy, find themselves at a band camp for teen moms.

"I am a fan of the show," Palin told ET. "I think it is realistic to show the consequences of teen pregnancy and to show it not only affects Amy, but her friends and her family."

In her guest appearance, Palin tells Amy she’s the world’s greatest French horn player and then refers to herself as Yo-Yo Ma. (Watch the clip.)

What did you think of Palin’s big debut?

Celebs pose nude for PETA

If you think Miley Cyrus’s outfits are revealing, get a load of her ex in his birthday suit!

Aspiring country singer and former underwear model Justin Gaston has stripped down for a steamy anti-fur photo shoot for PETA. The shots show him – all of him – in a variety of racy poses with wannabe model Giglianne Braga and actor hopeful Ben Elliot, his co-stars on the Hulu reality series “If I Can Dream.”

"With this PETA campaign, what I really wanted was it not to be about me but to be about the animals," Gaston, 21, said. "We're trying to bring light to this cause." FULL POST

Heidi Klum to produce 'Seriously Funny Kids'

If Heidi Klum channels her experience as a designer and model when hosting and producing “Project Runway” and “Models of the Runway,” she’s most certainly going to draw from her experience as a mother of four to produce her next project: "Seriously Funny Kids.”

Klum is producing the family program in conjunction with LMNO Productions, which produced "Kids Say the Darndest Things,” according to Variety. The show will travel to kid-friendly locations documenting kids’ reactions to different situations.

In addition to having “Project Runway’s” extended timeslot to look forward to, Klum is working on another Lifetime project that would feature her and Seal, her husband of five years.
