As if the Travolta courtcase wasn’t cinematic enough already, his lawyer has adopted some choice moves from the movies to help move the trial along.
According to TMZ, the defense attorney tried to claim Travolta’s lawyer Michael McDermott was the one behind the extortion plot to which – and this is when it gets good – McDermott responded, “You can’t handle the truth! You can’t handle the truth!”
The line is straight out of A Few Good Men starring Jack Nicholson, Tom Cruise and Demi Moore, and the defense lawyer didn’t miss the reference.
The lawyer for the alleged extortionists replied, “You’ve watched ‘A Few Good Men,’ huh?”
I didn’t even know Seal had a last name, but apparently his wife Heidi Klum wants to adopt it as her own, according to TMZ.
After a four-year marriage, Klum submitted her request to the L.A. County Superior Court to change her surname to Samuel, making her Mrs. Seal Henry Olusegun Olumide Adelo Samuel-Klum.
It doesn’t have quite the same ring. The decision has not yet been signed, but will be officially revealed on Nov. 20.
This is the most serious Klum has ever gotten about a hubbie. In 1997, she married stylist Ric Pipino but they divorced in 2002. One year later, Klum was pregnant with the child of boyfriend Flavio Briatore. But the day she released the news of their lovechild, Briatore was caught on camera kissing Fiona Swarovski, the jewellery heiress.
Tech giants Panasonic and Sony plan to bring 3D viewing to the small screen by 2010, Reuters.com reports.
Last week Panasonic unveiled a 50-inch high-definition 3D plasma television with glasses that make images appear as if you can reach out and touch them.
The technology tricks your brain with high-speed shutters working in sync with the glasses to form a double-layered image.
“When the TV is showing the left image, the shutter closes the right eye so people can see only the left image,” explained Keisuke Suetsugi, manager in charge of high quality AV development.
“And the next moment, when the TV is showing the right image, the shutter glass is covering the left.”

IT will be the same places. So I will see you guys there. I’m putting out my re-release as well – The Fame Monster on November 24.”

Last night MTV’s expert panel capped off their top ten “Hottest MC’s” with long-time heavyweight Jay-Z coming out on top. The controversial list was compiled by Hip Hop critics and enthusiasts, and for the first time included the opinion of fans across North America. The criteria: lyrics, flow, impact, buzz, sales and intangibles.
The final list: 1. Jay-Z, 2. Lil Wayne, 3. Drake, 4. Kanye West, 5. Rick Ross, 6. Gucci Mane, 7. Young Jeezy, 8. Fabolous, 9. 50 cent, 10. Raekwon
A few names are mysteriously absent from the list, most notably, Eminem. The rapper should not only have appeared on the list, he should have been in the top five. His recent album wasn’t his best of all time but its popularity continues to grow, and his verse on Drake’s new ‘Forever’ remix was the best on the track.
Kid Cudi’s name has spread like wildfire in the music industry, and TI continues to maintain his popularity; yet neither of them appear on the list.

The regret surrounding the tragic death of Adam ‘DJ YM’ Goldstein will deepen when MTV airs his eight-episode documentary ‘Gone Too Far’ on Monday, October 12th, MTV reports.
The documentary will feature DJ AM’s meetings with addicts, along with their friends and family, discussing the struggles, causes and possible solutions of addiction. The episodes will also reveal the details of his personal addiction, predominantly to crack cocaine.
Goldstein’s mission to blow open the discussion on drug abuse in North America came to a halt when he died of an accidental overdose at his New York City apartment on August 28th. Many suspect that the excessive drug use was linked to the mental and physical trauma he suffered after a plane crash in 2008.
His death may help cement the documentary’s conveyance of the dangerous toll that drugs take on the lives of addicts, and also those around them. He is a living example of that senseless fate.
