Lea Michele is a single lady.

I can exclusively reveal that...

The Glee star, 25, and her actor boyfriend of more than a year, Theo Stockman, have called it quits, a source tells me.

A rep for Michele confirmed the split. "This is not a dramatic breakup, the relationship just ran its course," the rep said in a statement. "They are still friends and will always be friends."

The very low-profile couple first went public when they attended the Time 100 Most Influential People gala in New York City together in May 2010. Stockman, 26, starred in American Idiot on Broadway and has appeared on television shows like 30 Rock and Nurse Jackie.

The two were last spotted vacationing together in Hawaii in July.

Harrison Krix may never actually be invited to join Daft Punk, but at the very least, he'll likely have the coolest Halloween costume in the room for pretty much the rest of his life. It's true, we've seen plenty of folks have a go at the French electronic duo's signature headware in the past -- including one from Krix himself -- but few if any have shown quite the attention to detail as this project from the Atlanta-based graphic designer. At the center of the project is an Arduino-controlled LED with text that can be changed over WiFi with an iOS device.

Relive the four month project in the three and a half minute video after the jump. And if you've ever wondered what Back to the Future might have looked like with Thomas Bangalter as Marty McFly, check out the source link below.

See that there? That's a Galaxy Tab 8.9 WiFi, and after months on end of mystery, it seems as if the wait to procure one in the US of A is just about over. Shipments are arriving at Best Buy stores across the nation, and according to our sources, they'll be stocked and ready for purchase starting September 22nd. We're still waiting to hear back on a retail price, but those who'd like to hazard a guess can extrapolate from those UK figures. So, did your Tuesday plans just get made?

Select stores may be ushering them out on the 22nd, while others will be force to wait until the 25th. As for pricing? It's "listed" at $399.99, but we've certainly seen Best Buy placeholders be wrong before.

Samsung chimed in with official pricing. The 16GB model will sell for $469, with the 32GB flavor costing $100 more. Source: EnGadget
If you scored yourself Vuzix's Wrap 1200 side-by-side 3D video eyewear last month, you may want to know the company's VR variant is now available for $600 (about 100 bones more). With the Wrap 1200VR, you'll again be viewing a simulated 75-inch 3D (or 2D, if you'd prefer) display at ten feet away, in up to 720p HD via its dual monitor setup. The VR bit comes from the included Wrap Tracker 6TC with compass, which enables head-tracking with three degrees of freedom. Better yet, its coupled drift control should maintain silky smooth visuals when you're tilting your noggin' to scope out the on-screen action.

Out of box, these specs are said to play nice with most Windows machine's graphics cards and VGA connections, but adapters are required to rock them with your PS3 or Xbox 360. If your eyes are already tearing up with joy, you'll find full details in the PR just past the break. Source: EnGadget
Singer/songwriter Gavin DeGraw has no idea if reports suggesting he was struck by a cab on the night he was brutally beaten up in New York are true, because his concussion was so severe.

The "Chariot" star also suffered a broken nose and other injuries after a gang of thugs turned on him as he walked home from a night out with friends in early August.

It was reported that DeGraw took another blow when he was hit by a taxi as he staggered home after the attack, before a passerby found him and called for an ambulance to take him to hospital.

The singer recalls his struggle trying to dial 911 on his cell phone and he admits the only knowledge he has about the cab is from a third party.

He tells UsMagazine.com, "I was having a hard time calling because my cell was so bloody. I was bleeding so much and I remember my fingers were sliding all over the keypad. I remember that being very frustrating. I got there (to the hospital) because someone said that I had an encounter with a cab.

"I didn't know anything about that at that point. I had a pretty serious concussion already so I don't remember very much... I think the person who called the ambulance said that I had been hit by a cab. I don't know exactly what that means."

But DeGraw can understand why no cab driver would have wanted to give him a ride.

He says, "My speculation is that I saw the cab and it stopped so I went up to it to get in because I was so bloody and needed help to take me to the hospital. He probably saw how bloody I was and stepped on the pedal from there. This is more speculation, you know what I mean?

"I don't know if I was hit by a cab. I probably grabbed the handle to get in, he probably saw it, and stepped on the pedal which could have thrown me. Maybe the cab kind of grazed me at that point and threw me off into the road or sidewalk or whatever. That's when the person called the ambulance." Source: StarPulse
Singer Sara Bareilles has collected celebrity memorabilia from her famous friends for a charity auction to benefit the families affected by the Indiana State Fair stage collapse.

The "Love Song" star had just left the stage when storm winds brought the structure down, killing seven festival-goers and injuring another 40.

And she's still recovering from the August tragedy.

She says, "It definitely changes the way you step onstage. We were all very fortunate that day and no one in my crew... was hurt from that, but we all saw a lot of stuff that we wish we hadn't seen."

Now she's determined to help those recovering from the tragedy.

Bareilles adds, "We've put together an eBay auction to benefit the families that were affected by that tragic event... All sorts of artists have donated time and unique special gifts."

The memorabilia went on show on Bareilles' website on Monday. Source: StarPulse
You don't have to know about VORP — or WHIP, or OPS — to enjoy "Moneyball," the story of how a bunch of stat geeks changed the way baseball teams assess and acquire players.

Sure, it helps if you're a fan of the sport and if you've read Michael Lewis' breezy and engaging best-seller "Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game." Sabermetrics — the process of applying statistical formulas, rather than on-field appearance and general makeup, to determine a player's worth — wouldn't seem like an inherently cinematic topic. But Lewis made lesser-known guys like Scott Hatteberg and Chad Bradford leap off the page. And the cajoling patter from Billy Beane, the Oakland A's general manager who pioneered this experimental philosophy, would seem tailor-made for screenwriter Aaron Sorkin, who co-wrote the script along with fellow veteran scribe Steven Zaillian.

Still, what's most pleasing about the film doesn't really have to do with baseball.

As Beane, Brad Pitt is at his charismatic best — a little weary, a little weathered, but that complexity only makes him more appealing. He's persistent and persuasive as he tries to change the mindset of the baseball lifers who surround him. We see him rage in his infamously volatile fashion when things go wrong, but we also see him make himself vulnerable: He's embracing this approach as a result of his own failure.

Tall, good-looking and naturally athletic — a five-tool guy, as they say — Beane was a highly-touted high school prospect who turned down a scholarship to Stanford to play for the New York Mets. But his professional career was brief, and he never lived up to the hype. This inspired him to value players for more pragmatic reasons than the traditional methods old-school scouts use. The most important thing, he reasoned, is getting on base. And some of the players who get on base most often happen to be undervalued, perhaps older or a little banged-up, and they come at bargain prices — which is crucial when you've got a fraction of the payroll of big-market teams.

As he ventures into this brave new world at the start of the 2002 season, having lost in agonizing fashion to the New York Yankees in the 2001 post-season, his trusty sidekick is Peter Brand, a 25-year-old Yale economics graduate and follower of sabermetrics guru Bill James. (The character is an amalgamation of several young, up-and-coming baseball executives who subscribed to this belief). Jonah Hill is at his best here, too, as Brand: the perfect foil for a force of nature like Beane. Halting and almost humorless, Hill ultimately finds the quiet confidence in this character, and he and Pitt bounce off each other beautifully. The scenes in which they banter represent the best "Moneyball" has to offer.

Yes, they're talking about baseball, but the intelligence of their interactions and the bond they forge transcend sport. And watching them upend a bastion of American culture can be thrilling.

Similarly, though, the things that are wrong with the movie have nothing to do with baseball, either. Insiders and hardcore fans will probably find reasons to nitpick, as is their wont; if there's a group of people more obsessed with details and arcania than movie nerds, it's baseball nerds. But more fundamentally, there's a problem with the pacing in director Bennett Miller's film. Source: ABCNews

Tot Mom, meet Tit mom. The 13th season of Dancing with the Stars premiered tonight with a fresh crop of celebrity competitors to break in its brand new set. One of the show's most anticipated moments was the appearance of perpetually angry grief pornographer Nancy Grace. You know, so we could all see how angry she was.

Except that Grace wasn't angry. She was happy. Really happy! So happy, in fact, she felt sexy. How sexy? Well, take a big ol' gulp of the milkshake Grace served up in the above video and then draw your own conclusions.
MICHELLE WILLIAMS says in no uncertain terms that she wants to quit acting. What?! After those Oscar nominations for “Brokeback Mountain and “Blue Valentine”? She’s so close to snagging that coveted golden naked guy, why would she think of quitting showbiz now? She isn’t thinking of doing a Greta Garbo (“I vant to ve alone!”) and disappear into seclusion with daughter Matilda, is she?

But the former “Dawson’s Creek” actress, who’ll be playing the iconic Marilyn Monroe in “My Week With Marilyn” has different ideas on the matter:
“I often dream of quitting acting. Walking away and becoming a laundress or a sous chef or maybe writing other people’s love letters for a living,”
Michelle tells celebrity news.
“Clearly, I don’t like to be in charge. And thinking of quitting is just keeping going in disguise. When you have options, anything is bearable. It’s when a situation is inescapable that it becomes hell. It seems to me that as soon as you get good at something, it is a sure sign that it is about to walk out of your life because it ceases to hold your mind and creative energy hostage.”
Clearly, we are either in a huge state of depression or taking an insane amount of mind-altering drugs.

Or else this is just how a gifted thespian talks, enigmatically without any particular meaning that’s clear to anyone but themselves.

Still, whatever Michelle Williams is planning, we hope she plods on until she snags that Oscar. It’ll be a pity to have nothing to show to young Matilda once she’s segued her career over to slaving away over the vichyssoise at a three-star hotel, or managing the neighboring Laundromat.

After the announcement of Miss Universe 2011 winners, a statement coming from Winfrey Oprah circulated over the net.

“I have reservations with the results. If the only basis is the Q and A portion, after having been trimmed down to 5, Ms. Philippines deserved to win. What made her different from the rest is that she had no seconds to rethink of her answer as she had no interpreter to break the ice. The rest had their interpreters and having breaks on seconds to think about their answers. Hands down, Ms. Philippines answered straight to the point.”

There’s no truth to the statement that allegedly said by Oprah. It’s a hoax.

A moderator on Oprah's official website Oprah.com said Oprah has not issued "any comments of this nature."

OWNModerator13 responded: "There is no truth to the statement. Ms. Winfrey has not made any comments of this nature. Thank you for asking."
