Break out the scrapbook – it’s baby’s first set visit!
Claire Danes brought her six-month-old baby boy, Cyrus, along for a day of filming the third season of her hit TV drama Homeland in Charlotte, North Carolina, on Wednesday.
Taking a breather between shots, Danes, 34, doted on and kissed her chubby-cheeked little man, who is her first child with husband Hugh Dancy, 38. Later, the little one laid in the arms of a pal as Danes dedicated some time to an embroidery project.
When the cameras were rolling, Danes was back in character as Homeland‘s Carrie Mathison, the bipolar but brilliant CIA agent who’s committed her life to fighting terrorism. The critically acclaimed Showtime series took home three Golden Globes earlier this year, including a second best actress in a drama series trophy for Danes.
In her acceptance speech, she thanked her then-newborn son, who was in utero throughout the filming of Homeland‘s second season.
“I have to thank our son Cyrus, who’s upstairs with my parents,” she gushed. “Thank you for joining me throughout this whole process and being so game in fighting this war against terrorism.”
Katy Perry‘s latest release, “Dark Horse,” contained several surprises. First there was the trap beat, something of a surprise coming from Perry. Then there was Juicy J‘s reference to Jeffrey Dahmer in his verse of the song. Perry’s song isn’t the first time a song has name-dropped the man who raped, killed, dismembered and ate at least 17 men and boys over a 13 year period. Ke$ha caught some flack with the release of “Cannibal” for a similar reference to Dahmer. These references aren’t isolated cases, in fact, name-checking one of America’s most notorious serial killers is downright commonplace.
Here is just a sample of the dozens of songs which have evoked the name of the Milwaukee Cannibal.
“Dark Horse” Katy Perry (feat. Juicy J)
“She’s a beast / I call her karma / She’ll eat your heart out / Like Jeffrey Dahmer”
“Whenever you tell me I’m pretty / That’s when the hunger really hits me / Your little heart goes pitter patter / I want your liver on a platter / Use your finger to stir my tea / And for dessert I’ll suck your teeth / Be too sweet and you’ll be a goner / Yep, I’ll pull a Jeffrey Dahmer”
“Eat You Alive” Lil Wayne (feat. Ludacris)
“Let me out my cage, I’ll eat these beats / I’m hip hop’s Jeffrey Dahmer”
“The Cypher” Chris Brown, Tyga, Kevin McCall and Ace Hood
“Killing for survival / Jeffrey Dahmer, I’mma slaughter every beat that I’m on”
“You’re Gonna Love This” 3OH!3
“Yeah I don’t know what’s happening / And I swear to your honor that in my car that girl was biting on my lips like Jeffrey Dahmer”
“Must Be the Ganja” Eminem
“Faced with a dilemma, I can be a Dalai Lama and be calmer / Bring drama, I step beyond a Jeffrey Dahmer”
“Things Get Worse” Eminem (feat. B.o.B)
“They can’t even get Jeffrey Dahmer to pet the cougar”
“Fubba U Cubba Cubba” Eminem
“You think I’m the new Osama, press thinks I’m the new Madonna / Jeffrey Dahmer left me with his legacy to carry on”
“Black Friday” Lil Kim
“I smell a massacre / I’m Charles Manson, you don’t stand a chance with her / Jeffrey Dahmer and you lookin’ like lunch to me / ‘Bout to kill all you bitches like Ted Bundy”
“Clique/Fuckin’ Problem” Tyga
“Told my girl, Jeffrey Dahmer, and eat her out”
“Pretty Boy Swag (Remix)” Tyga
“Eat your heart out bitch, I’m Jeffrey / Dahmer, Damier my luggage”
“Natural Born Killaz” Dr. Dre (feat. Ice Cube)
“So I’mma pull a fucking Jeffrey Dahmer / Now I’m suicidal, just like Nirvana”
“Gingerbread Man” Gucci Mane
“Eat rappers like Jeffrey Dahmer / Dope color Sinead O’Connor”
“Dancin’ Dirty” Ludacris (feat. Chris Brown)
“She nasty with a nice persona, she bitin’ me like piranha / The modern day Jeffrey Dahmer, she must get it from her mama”
“I’m On It” J. Cole
“Don’t fight the feeling mama / Not Jeffrey Dahmer, but your body is a killer mama”
“Body Parts” Three 6 Mafia
“Could it be another Jeffrey Dahmer / I’m sneakin’ / And creepin’ / And blowin’ up shit like the Unabomber”
“Electric City” Black Eyed Peas
“La dee dee dee, dee dee dee dee, la dee dah / Killer on the loose, like I’m Jeffrey Dahmer”
“Benz or Beemer” OutKast
“My gat is in my lap, so what you wanna be startin’ now? / I’m pissin’ up on Jeffrey’s Dahmer grave, that cracker was foul”
Leave it to OutKast to always speak the truth.
Madonna premiered her short film secretprojectrevolution last night at the Gagosian Gallery in Manhattan and it was a cornucopia of awesome. Lindsay Lohan was there looking great and chatting with Anderson Cooper, Madonna’s son Rocco performed with her and .. SEAN PENN WAS THERE.
‘Bad Girl’ Riri arrived in Adelaide, Australia today channeling her inner Marilyn Manson in an all-black ensemble, vampy lipstick and oversized cross earrings. The songstress has come under fire during her Diamonds World Tour for showing up late to her concerts and possibly lip synching while maybe being on drugs.
Jada Pinkett Smith‘s recent admission that she battled “many addictions” may have shocked the world, but it only added more grief for the man who helped raise her.
Warren A. Brown, now a successful attorney in Baltimore, Maryland, married Smith’s mom Adrienne Banfield Jones in 1979 when the actress was just 8-years-old. Although Jones has recently spoken openly about her drug abuse when her daughter was a child, this is the first time Smith’s stepdad has revealed what really went on under their roof. And he’s not proud of it.
“At times I felt guilty,” Brown told Celebuzz. “I remember just the three of us in the house together and I knew I was high and so was her mother.
“She didn’t know though, she was too young to recognize it. She didn’t see us doing anything. But I felt really bad because I thought this little girl deserves better than her parents (being) addicted.”
Brown admits cocaine was his drug of choice, but stopped short of revealing too much about his ex-wife’s substance abuse.
“While we were both dealing with that, I was still going to court and she was going to school and working. She left it up to me to watch Jada,” he added.
“It’s difficult to feel guilty. I don’t really blame myself, but I think about a couple things. I question that if I had not divorced myself from them, whether or not she would have fallen into addictions. And if I had been around I may have witnessed it and been able to pull her out of it.”
Although he doesn’t know of any “addictions” Jada may have endured back then, he tries to remember only the good times they shared being “thick as thieves.” And there were many.
“She was a sweet little girl. We were very close. It was me and Jada,” said Brown. “I was raising her while her mother was working and in college.”
Brown recalls taking her on many “firsts,” including trips to New York City, Cape Cod, Virginia Beach and Jamaica.
He even recalls a day trip to the movie theatre to see The Karate Kid, which brought back a flood of memories when he passed by a local theatre only to see her son Jaden on the marquee for the new installment in 2010.
“We spent a lot of time together,” he said of their bond before he divorced her mother around 1986. “But once I separated from her and her mom, I quickly got remarried and my new wife asked that I distance myself from her. So it was a sudden departure for Jada, and it was always just the two of us.”
He can’t help but think if he would have been there for her, she would have struggled less.
“Anyone who knew of our relationship would not disagree that my estrangement with her may have played a part,” admitted Brown.
“I tend to think that if I was there, I could have provided a positive role model.
“I loved that little girl.”

Like her residency at Planet Hollywood, Britney Spears‘ new music video will be taking place in the desert.
The singer teased fans with a short clip of her “Work Bitch” music video on Instagram Thursday night and it’s certainly harkening back to the days of Spice Girls’ “Say You’ll Be There.” Complete with leather bustiers and a Maserati (yes, just like in the lyrics), the teaser shows Spears working some serious arm-ography in the barren sandy landscape.
“My choreographer actually, when I was doing the rehearsals for this video, he was like, ‘Britney, you are not a sweet mommy in this video. You are nasty bitch mommy in this video,'” Spears recently told E! News of the shoot.
Watch what the “nasty bitch mommy” can do in the teaser clip, below. Lyrics for the song are now on Directlyrics.
You know who misses the ’90s? Katy Perry misses the ’90s.
Is there any sound Katy Perry won’t try? First we got a trap beat and now “Walking on Air” features a ’90s house beat Right Said Fred would envy.
Prism is out in October.
I know. I feel icky too. But it has to be said: The Biebs is all growns up. Justin Bieber took to the stage in Beijing Sunday night and as things are wont to do when a million prepubescent tweens wail your name; it got hot in therr. The oft-troubled hearthrob with a hearty self-deprecating spirit (take note, Yeezy) went out there and delivered. And although he may be speeding, toking, spitting, and urinating, he will keep his tongue in his mouth, take his shirt off and give the people what they want. On time. International. Pop. Star.
Katy Perry knows a lot of clich s. And they’re all in this song: “dark horse,” “perfect storm,” “play with magic,” “bird without a cage,” etc.
“Dark Horse” features Juicy J and is produced by KP standbys Dr. Luke and Max Martin. Are you ready for it?
Prism: come for the wordplay, stay for the Jeffrey Dahmer references.
