Katy Perry Smacked Down - Katy was not smacked down like we would all probably hope for, but she was given an award and then had to give it back when the French NRJ organization realized it had failed to carry the 1 when adding the votes by hand and gave Katy Perry an award which should have gone to Rihanna instead. Katy, clutching the award in her hand was last seen sprinting for the exits saying it was all hers and that she liked it.

James McAvoy Talks Smack - Ever wonder why you only see James out and about when he is promoting a film? Seems that he feels actors should only be seen at that time or else people will grow tired of them and never want to see any movie they appear in.
"There comes a point where, you just can’t watch an actor without… I just know so much about them. So how can I accept them in a role? There are just some people, they’re not actors to me. They’re chip paper. Just glossy paper. “If I’m in a film, or a telly, or a play, then why should people come and see it? Because you know, they can just pick up some f***ing rubbish magazine, and see me in that.”
He makes a good point. In the past, the only way you could see your favorite performers was in something they had done, but now, their job is just kind of a sideshow to their real job which appears to be staying famous and using fame to get more money rather than using your talent.
