The Wanted is headed for a break, and more news to note

Today's talk you might've missed:

  • Boy band The Wanted wants a break after they wrap up their spring tour. When their Word of Mouth trek ends in Belfast on March 25, the gents are going to spend some time apart. [MTV]
  • Tame any fantasies you have about "Fifty Shades of Grey" going totally NC-17 - producer Michael De Luca told press at the Sundance Film Festival that the movie is going to be more "erotic" rather than "explicit." [Deadline]
  • Egads! "New Girl" is being accused of ripping its premise from someone else's pilot script. [EW]
  • Shia LaBeouf might be this year's Joaquin Phoenix. Apparently his recent bout of crazy is just performance art. [NYDN]
  • When Selena Gomez talks about how hard it is to find a man who can "understand my lifestyle, support it, love me through it, and not be threatened by it," is that a subtle (or not-so-subtle) dig at Justin Bieber? [Seventeen magazine]
  • Daniel Radcliffe is vying for the title of hardest working guy in show business. He's lined up yet another fresh project about the construction of the Brooklyn Bridge, handily called "Brooklyn Bridge." [NYMag's Vulture]

    This is to CNN. I can post from my phone, but can't on computer. I'm sure you have some bugs to work out. How about a little info for everybody to make this transition a little more smooth?

      Also, I wasn't able to do this without starting a wp blog, which I didn't want. Now that I have it, how do I get rid of it?

      We changed our settings to require people to log in through WordPress because we have gotten so many complaints about users changing their user names and imitating other people.
      It got to the point where it was hard to tell who people were really talking to (sometimes they were talking to themselves).

        Lol, understandable. Can you tell me why there's no "submit" button for computer users? Phones work fine, computers not so much. Just have a few more bugs to work out?

          What browser are you using?
          I am not having any trouble from my computer. I'm using chrome right now, but will try out Firefox in just a second.

      David- can you tell me why I can log in on my cell, but not on my computer. Is this something you are working on, or the way it is going to be? I set the acct up on my computer, too. Seems odd only the cell works.
      Btw, thanks for finally doing something to make the blog better.

        I don't know why you can't log in from site. I'll see what I can find out.
        In the meantime, you might try clearing your browser cache, deleting cookies or trying a different browsers.
        Sometimes that helps.

          My computer uses Mozilla Firefox. I log in, and it doesn't do anything.

          I just logged in on Firefox to see what happened. It seems to be working, but I'll know for sure when I hit submit.
          Maybe restarting computer?

          Rebooted and reentered login info. Still nothing.

    If Selena is looking for a man, why would she give an interview to Seventeen Magazine? Do lots of men read that?

    50 Shades is going totally NC-17? I think I just heard all the women sigh.
