Kardashian "shocked" by nude photoshoot

Kim Kardashian has admitted that she was initially "shocked" when she saw the results of a recent nude photoshoot.

This week's episode of Kourtney & Kim Take New York! saw the star breaking down on seeing her finished shoot for an art publication.

"I was naked but fully covered in silver paint," she explained to Kourtney during the episode. "This artist will put images of architecture and buildings and stuff on top of me so you will see my body shape and the outline but not actually my boobs or anything."

However, when the pictures arrived she broke down in tears at how much nudity was on display, crying: "I'm more naked here than I was in my Playboy."

During an appearance on Ryan Seacrest's radio show, which airs mornings on KIIS-FM, she explained that although she now "loved" the images, she had initially been surprised at how different they were to what she had expected.

"I love it now and I'm glad that I did it, but when you are told something and it's not what you think it's going to be, I was so shocked," she said. "I felt like I'd been here and done this and kind of wanted to move on from that.

"At the end of the day they are gorgeous photos and I'm glad I did it and I love them, but at the time I was shocked about how they weren't how I thought they would be."

However, she admitted that she could not complain about the finished feature because she had been aware she was posing nude. "I knew what I was doing," she added. "I took my clothes off, I did a nude shoot but it wasn't supposed to be that way so I was upset."

The star's new reality series Kourtney & Kim Take New York! kicked off to record ratings on E! last week. It follows Kim and Kourtney as they relocate to Manhattan from Los Angeles to launch a third branch of their Dash boutique.

Adnan creates history

For the live recording of a song to be done in participation with online listeners on two popular microblogs, singer Adnan Sami garnered a whopping 475,000 participants.

The huge number of participants for Adnan’s tribute to his father that he recorded January 21 at the Yash Raj Studios, has encouraged the composer-singer to attempt a whole album with live participants pitching in with their suggestions. The proposed album will have tracks dedicated to Adnan’s fans who would be contributing actively to every composition.

“When I recorded Main tere paas hoon for my father last Friday, I thought I would give my fans and listeners a chance to share a very precious recording moment with me.”

“We expected around 65,000 participants. We got 475,000 very active, very vocal and excitable people coming online with their ideas and suggestions,” said Adnan, who is of Pakistani descent but born and brought up in Britain, and has been living in Mumbai for quite some time. Many people who listened in made suggestions and corrections in the music.

“I was taken aback by their inner understanding of a song composition. I was on my laptop. I’d do a line and then a number of people with some very interesting usernames would pipe in. There were people who actually made suggestions that improved the quality of my number. I incorporated these suggestions,” said the 37-year-old singer.

The entire process of recording live at Yash Raj with massive online participation will be shown on television.

“It was history. No song in any part of the world has been recorded in this way,” said Adnan who intends to carry the online recording session even further. The only drawback is that the fans tend to get too close for comfort. “Some of them have embarrassing usernames like ‘hard-on’ and ‘dickhead’. It sounds really weird to call them out online by such names. We’ve to find a way out of this. Also some of them get very upset when their suggestions are not incorporated.

“That apart, the whole process of bringing to life a song with the active participation of thousands of people makes my songs creative and the intellectual property of the listeners,” said the singer.

Best actress Oscar nominee Nicole Kidman shot her mouth off and got shot for Harper's Bazaar. Let's listen in, shall we?

On
Rabbit Hole: "As soon as we got the rights to make the film, I was terrified. But I have that relationship with everything I do. I want it, then I get it, and then I don't want it. I've worked like that my whole life. So yeah, Maui was definitely a breather."

On moving to Nashville:
"It was perfect timing, because I had nowhere to live. I was living out of suitcases when I met Keith. I suppose in the back of my mind I was waiting to meet somebody. And I wanted it to be that if that person didn't live in New York or Los Angeles, I would be able to move. In the back of my head, I was thinking I may have to put my roots down somewhere. I was going to move to Oregon. "

On meeting Keith Urban:
"I remember thinking, Oh, my God, if you ever gave me a man like that, I promise I would be completely devoted for the rest of my life. Something that wild. I remembered praying after I met him that I'd meet somebody, if not him, like him. "

On her personal style:
"I like boy-girl looks. I have no sense of what's fashionable; I just know what I like to wear. I don't believe in something being in and out. You know those lists? That probably goes along with the whole way I live my life. I don't like kind of changing with the wind; I like sticking to my own self. "

On family versus career:
"I like to ask people if they would rather have a great love that lasts a lifetime or an amazing career where you go down in history. Some people do answer that they want an extraordinary career."

Okay, wait. She was wandering around homeless and living out of suitcases because she didn't have a man? That may be one of the most unintentionally pathetic things we've ever heard. And does anyone else think her "Jesus, give me Keith Urban and I'll be a good girl" story was both a little pathetic and a little bit unbelievable?

As for the pictures...

Despite her reputation as a legendary clotheshorse, she's not much of a model. These look like family vacation pictures. Here's one of Nicole sitting on steps. Oh, and here's one of Nicole in a greenhouse. And remember that time we took a picture of Nicole in front of a tree? Good times.

Bitchery aside, she looks very pretty. Her hair (assuming it's both hers and hair) hasn't looked that good in ages. And despite the uninspired posing, the clothes look great on her.

Sean Connery says no to James Bond's 50th anniversary

"James Bond" movie bosses were left disappointed after veteran actor Sean Connery declined an invitation to the 50th anniversary celebrations of the superspy series next year.

The Scottish star was the first ever actor to portray the suave British secret agent '007' in 1962 film "Dr No", and went on to play James Bond seven times.

The series is set to return to the big screen with Daniel Craig playing 007 agent for the third time. The release of the new film will coincide with the 50th anniversary of the franchise.

The bosses at MGM studio are planning to mark the milestone with a special event in which all former Bonds talk about their dealings with the character, aceshowbiz.com reports.

Pierce Brosnan, Timothy Dalton, George Lazenby and Roger Moore are all in talks to be part of the celebrations, but Connery has snubbed the organisers.

"Not having Sean would be a sad thing for these celebrations. We hope he will change his mind," a source said.

2011 SAG Awards Part 3: Where the Boys Are

2011 SAG Awards Part 3: Where the Boys Are

Hammtastic.

We're gonna stretch our muscles and see if we can find something to say about each of the men. Warning: this is going to get repetitive. Hit it, boys.

Andrew Garfield in Burberry
The blue tuxedo was a chic choice and while we do believe it's permissable and even stylish to wear brown shoes with a blue suit, we'd never recommend it for a formal look.

Chord Overstreet in Emporio Armani
Not bad. The fit seems a little roomy. Take half an inch off the hem of the pants.

Chris Colfer in Dior
You're wearing a freaking Dior tuxedo, Babygay. Straighten and tighten that tie. He went for a skinny fit in the pants (which he can pull off), so the extra fabric around his angles doesn't bug as much.

Christian Bale in Gucci
Same thing he wore to the Globes; same reaction from us: tuxedos with black shirts read as organized crime. Although as you'll see, we feel some of the men pulled off this tired look last night.

Colin Firth
Perfection. Except for the hair. Colin, you're an Oscar nominee. No one will judge you if you use a little product in your hair.

Cory Monteith in Calvin Klein Collection
We like the silver tie, but we think the look would have been better with a white shirt. Hem Watch: Looks like a good 2 to 3 inches need to go.

Dennis Haysbert
Perfect fit.
Hem Watch: perfect.

Ed Helms
He looks cute but the fit is a little off.
Hem Watch: maybe an inch. He's close.

Edgar Ramirez
We couldn't tell you about the fit because he's got his hands shoved in his pockets like he's watching a golf tournament.
Hem Watch: perfect.
Harry Shum Jr.
This kid has real style. Wearing a pink shirt and blue tie with a metallic tuxedo and PULLING IT OFF. Bravo.
Hem watch: Just so.

Hugh Dancy in Ralph Lauren
Looks fine.
Hem Watch: perfect. The Brits tend not to look like they're standing in a hole. They get it.

Jack Robbins
He's a cute kid and (as far as we know) not a star, so he did alright for himself. The black shirt doesn't detract in this case.
Hem watch: about right, which is no easy task with a guy this tall.

James Franco in Gucci
Standard, but well done.
Hem watch: very good. Have these boys been listening to us?

Jeff Bridges
What a striking couple they are. He looks great. So does she.
Hem watch: very good, but are those SUEDE shoes? With a tux? Oh, Jeff. Put the bong down before you make decisions like this.

Jeremy Renner in Dolce & Gabbana
Lorenzo has just admitted a crush on him, so Tom thinks he looks AWFUL and should be SET ON FIRE. Naah. He looks good, except for the oddly wrinkled pants. He must have gotten a little limo BJ on the way over.

And THAT's why the gays make for better red carpet commentary, bitches. Not even Joan Rivers would have come up with that last line.
Hem watch: a skosh too much.

Jesse Eisenberg in Dolce & Gabbana
Far be it for us to defend Giuliana, but we thought he was kind of obnoxious to her last night. Anyway, it's a nice looking tux, but he's a rumpled mess.

Jesse Tyler Ferguson
It's so sad when the gays let us down on the red carpet. Let's break this down: His pants don't match his jacket, he's wearing a windowpane plaid shirt with a tartan plaid tie, and he bottomed it off (pun unintended!) with a pair of brown shoes. Dude, you are so fucking fired.
Hem watch: That's one thing he got right.

John Krasinski in Prada
We thought he looked really adorable last night, which is odd, because he never did anything for us before. He can even pull off the black shirt,
Hem watch: Quel désastre. He looks like a Clydesdale wearing shoes.

Jon Hamm in Calvin Klein Collection
It would be nearly impossible for him to look bad. However, the fit on the jacket seems a little snug in the midsection.
Hem Watch: Looks like he could take off a good 2 or 3 inches.

Josh Duhamel in Calvin Klein Collection
Good. Nothing to write home about.
Hem Watch: Almost right. Still a skosh too long.

Josh Hutcherson
He's kind of adorable. We saw The Kids are All Right finally and while we thought the cast was uniformly excellent, the picture itself was kind of annoying. Anyway, he looks good. We wish he'd tightened the tie.
Hem Watch: Excellent, Padawan.

Josh Pence
Ca-HYUTE! The fit is great.
Hem Watch: Well, nobody's perfect.

Justin Timberlake in Simon Spurr
He can be pretty irritating and full of himself, but he really looks great here. Love the tie.
Hem Watch: almost there.

Keith Urban
We just can't get over his hair. We've seen less highlights and lowlights on your average Mary Kay rep. Anyway, the suit looks fine, but he should be slapped - and hard - for walking the red carpet with his jacket undone and his hand in his pocket. And unless he's planning on leaving early for his job as a construction foreman, those shoes should have never seen the light of day.
Hem Watch: It's a little difficult to assess with his GIGANTIC SHOES blocking our view.

Kevin McHale
We like that he's a bit of a hipster dandy and that he takes risks, but nothing's working here. Don't like the tie-lessness, don't like the boutonniere, which is way too large and besides, why are you wearing a boutonniere to an awards ceremony anyway? Those are for wedding and proms. Could you imagine if all the women started carrying bouquets or wearing wrist corsages to the red carpet.
Hem Watch: got that part right.

LL Cool
On just about anyone else, we'd have opinions about that hat and that shirt, but it's so totally LL and he's so freaking cute that he makes it work.
Hem Watch: Oy. He's not THAT cute.

Mario Lopez
Standard, but fine.
Hem Watch: could stand to lose an inch.

Mark Ruffalo
Oh, PLEASE. If you're above it all, then don't come. But if you're coming, PUT THE EFFORT IN. He looks ridiculously sloppy.
Hem Watch: Do you really need to ask the question?

Mark Salling
Russian mafia enforcer. Not fabulous.
Hem Watch: it hurts our eyes.

Matthew Morrison
EWWWWW!

EWWEWWEWWEWWEWW.

So sleazy looking. You're not at a nightclub, buddy.
Hem Watch: worst of the night. You could take a full 4 inches off those pants. Amazingly, this is not the worst thing about his outfit.

Michael C. Hall
This isn't a very good picture of him. Even so, someone with his coloring should stick to the classic white shirt.
Hem Watch: tragic.

Michael Pitt in Calvin Klein Collection
He always looks like he needs a good scrubdown. And no, we don't mean that in a sexual way. He really looks dirty all the time. He's pulling off the look, though.
Hem Watch: Not perfect, but not bad.

Patrick Stewart in Calvin Klein Collection
J'ADORE JEAN-LUC. And always have. A charming, intelligent, sexy man. He looks fabulous.
Hem watch: Perfection, bien sûr.

Steve Buscemi
He looks perfect, head to toe.

Steve Carrell
He always looks great in a tux.
Hem Watch: could have taken half an inch off.

Warren Beatty
Well, he's Warren Beatty. He's been wearing tuxes several times a year for over 50 years. He knows what he's doing.
