'South Park' creators apologize for stealing lines

Last Wednesday, "South Park" parodied the box office hit, "Inception." Funny stuff, and very similar in tone to a lot of their parodies, but not exactly new ground.

According to the New York Times, not only was it old ground but the show stole entire lines from a Collegehumor.com parody of the movie, and publicly apologized for it on Friday.

"South Park" co-creator told the paper that they actually called the creators of the parody video personally, including Dan Gurewitch, who had accused them of plagiarism on his blog. "It’s just because we do the show in six days, and we’re stupid and we just threw it together."

Superman debuts a new look

First Wonder Woman got a makeover, and now the Man of Steel is debuting a new look of his own.

The redrawing will appear in“Superman: Earth One," a new graphic novel retelling of the origin of the super hero which DC Comics says is “Superman for the 21st century."

Does the modern Superman look a little familiar to you Twi-hards? As the New York Post points out,  he bears “more of a resemblance to Robert Pattinson from the ‘Twilight’ movies than Christopher Reeve from the Superman films.”

Kanye West: What's the Illuminati?

Kanye West is having a devil of a time convincing critics that he's not a Satan worshiper.

The hip-hop star took to Twitter yesterday to deny claims that his new short film "Runaway" contains references to the occult and the Illuminati, a secret society thought to control world events. In fact, MTV reports, West claims he doesn't even know what the Illuminati is!

"Is Illuminati and devil worshiping like the same thing?" tweeted West, whose video shows people marching in hoods and model Selita Ebanks as a sexy phoenix.

Taylor Momsen flashes party-goers

She may model for Madonna's Material Girl clothing line, but Taylor Momsen wasn't wearing a whole lot of material at a recent New York City event. In fact, the 17-year-old "Gossip Girl" star flashed party-goers while performing with her band the Pretty Reckless, reports People.

The aspiring rocker initially took the stage in a ripped shirt, barely there skirt, sky-high heels, fishnets, and a necklace that read "Slave." During her song, she shockingly pulled down her top to reveal her bare breasts, which were only covered by x-shaped strips of black tape.

Momsen – who previously joked that she had sex with a priest - has a history of outrageous behavior and attire, and despite being criticized for being a bad influence on young fans, the former child star insists she's not changing her ways.

Halle Berry steps out with a new man

Things seem to be getting serious between Halle Berry and Olivier Martinez: The duo made their red-carpet debut together at Saturday's Carousel of Hope gala in Beverly Hills.

The 44-year-old actors, who met while filming the upcoming thriller "Dark Tide," were all smiles as they arrived hand-in-hand at the celeb-packed event. Us Weekly reports that the twosome was "inseparable" throughout the evening and that French-born Martinez was "constantly leaning in and whispering in Halle's ear, making her laugh."

Berry ended her almost-five year relationship with model Gabriel Aubry, the father of her 2-year-old daughter, Nahla, earlier this year, and has been romantically linked to Martinez since September, when the pair were spotted smooching in Paris.
