Jay Chou releasing personally written book in May

        Jay releases one album every year, promoting on two shores three places flying here and there, he also films commercials, very busy, then has he got time to write a book? Before the two books that involved his pictures "Iron Box Of An Island", "One2Free Story Book", he didn't write a single word, but they sold well because of his image.

This time Jay wants to release his own book, but there's no way for him to write it personally, the publishers Vincent Fang have asked him to carry a recording pen, he himself can record down his own thoughts, then the publishing staff will type it out and give it to Director Chou to do the final checking, at least this way the contents of the story are what he wants.

In order to rise to the procession of being a author, recently Jay has often been urged to hand in his work, Jay can't help but smile grimly: "In the past it is me pressing Vincent Fang, now I have finally tasted the taste of being pressed, the pressure is very big!"

Till now, Director Chou has only completed 1/3 progress, Vincent Fang smiled saying: "In the past it is Jay who presses me for work, could never have thought there is a time when I press him." Jay then said: "The days of being pressed for work really isn't for the living."

In the past the musical collaboration, it has always been Jay composing the tune first, then Vincent writes the lyrics according to the melody, "Like this Jay's space for writing songs is very big, he can use a vigorous unconstrained style, but for me it's a bit more mind racking so usually it's him pressing my lyrics, the degree of how late I hand in my work will make Jay can't help but shout at me: Vincent, by the time you are finished writing the lyrics, I would already have finished writing the songs for my next album."

Sometimes Jay will "act like a big star" with Vincent saying: "First buy me fried chicken to eat, if not then I won't have any inspiration!"

Alyssa Milano is from 'Planet Mom'

Alyssa Milano feels like she has been dropped off from "Planet Mom" since she gave birth to her son.

The 'Charmed' actress and her husband David Bugliari welcomed their first child, Milo Thomas Bugliari, into the world in August and she admits he has been such a good baby he has made her look like a super-parent.

She told Us Weekly magazine: "Everything is going so well. David told me, 'It's like you were dropped off from Planet Mom!' I said, 'No, he's such a great baby, he's just making me look good!' "

Alyssa also revealed her Hollywood agent husband has taken to fatherhood really well and she feels a rush of love for him every time she sees David and Milo together.

She added: "There is nothing like seeing the man you love with your child. The other day David was carrying him in a BabyBjorn while making work phone calls! It was so sweet and beautiful."

The 38-year-old actress recently revealed she and David named the tot after his grandfathers.

She wrote on her twitter page: "For all of you asking, "Milo" was named after his two Grandfathers, Miller and Thomas. Two very important men in my life. (sic)"

Book Title:

Safe at Home: Confessions of a Baseball Fanatic

Alyssa Milano is in love; she has been for some time. But the object of her affection isn't the subject of tabloid gossip or an actor; in fact, it isn't even a guy. It's a game, a game of nine innings that uses a ball made of leather and cork. A game called baseball.

Nicholas Sparks on failing to finish a novel.

Nicholas Sparks n Miley Cyrus
My favorite mistake is when I start a novel before I’m ready to write the novel. It’s happened a couple of times in my career. After I wrote Message in a Bottle, I started a book called The Best ManI thought I had most of the story in my mind, and I got two thirds of the way through. It was only then that I realized I shouldn’t have started it at all. Last year I had a novel that ended up in the catalog for Grand Central Publishing called Saying Good-Bye. It was never published.
                           Released on October 11, 2011.
The Best Of Me
The Last Song is a film by Julie Ann Robinson
Saying Good-Bye was the story about three people, two women and a man. Years earlier the women had gone to Italy when they were in college, and one of the women had fallen in love with this Italian guy.

Genius of the Cinema

Noted film historian and silent comedy authority, Jeffrey Vance draws on exhaustive research and interviews with those who knew Chaplin to produce this definitive illustrated account describing in lively detail the atmosphere on Chaplin’s film sets and his relationships with the cast and crew, his first attempts at comedy sequences that later became famous, the development of his scenarios and characters, and the main themes and ideas that persist through the major Chaplin films.
Composed with full access to the Chaplin Family archives. Coincides with the DVD release of Chaplin’s Classic film through MK2 and Warner Home video.
Introduction by David Robinson
With an interview by Richard Meryman       
Charlie Chaplin (UK, 1889-Switzerland, 1977) is one of cinema's mythical figures, while the character he played so often has become an icon. After a childhood in Dickensian London and early work on the stage, it was his move to Hollywood that enabled him to express his rich talent to the maximum, becoming the undisputed master of the burlesque genre in its golden age. His best known feature films, including City Lights (1931), Modern Times (1936) and The Great Dictator (1940), were made in the 1930s and combine comedy with social and political comment. With the advent of sound, Chaplin put away his baggy trousers, walking stick, broken-down shoes and bowler hat and set about developing ambitious dramas. But during the cold war period his free lifestyle and left-wing political affiliations obliged him to leave the USA. While his last European films, Monsieur Verdoux (1947) and Limelight (1952), did not have the same popular success as his earlier work, they remain major masterpieces.

Allison Pearson reveals agonies in writing her latest book

I Dont Know How She Does It;The Film

        A new trailer has been released for I Don’t Know How She Does It starring Sarah Jessica Parker and Pierce Brosnan.The film is based on the book by Allison Pearson about a finance executive who is the breadwinner of her household, but can’t handle the basics including baking a pie for her daughter’s school.The comedy will be released in theaters on September 16.
Best-selling author tells of how she was engulfed by 'bad clinical

"I think something I do have in common with [her fiction's teenage protagonist] Petra's life is that, like a lot of little girls, when I was young I wanted to be perfect, and I worked really hard to be good at everything. So I thought I'd be able to put my foot on the accelerator and get myself out of a depression but it doesn't work."

            Allison Pearson, the journalist-turned-bestselling author, yesterday spoke of the depression that engulfed her while writing her second novel and the anger she felt at her book being branded as "superior chick-lit".


             She told the Independent columnist Christina Patterson on the final day of the Woodstock Literary Festival, that she "fell into a bad clinical depression" while writing I Think I Love You, about a teenager's obsessive crush on the 1970s pop star and pin-up, David Cassidy.

Book Title: I Dont Know How She Does It

Allison Pearson's debut novel, I Don't Know How She Does It, is a rare and beautiful hybrid: a devastatingly funny novel that's also a compelling fictional world. You want to climb inside this book and inhabit it. However, you might find it pretty messy once you're in there. Narrator Kate Reddy is the manager of a hedge fund and mother of two small children.

'Priceless' Nicole Richie's 30th birthday

September 22, 2011 |  2:11 pm                                                                                                            Nicole Richie turned 30 on Wednesday, celebrating a new decade with her better half, friends and family in Beverly Hills.

Richie and her party took over the Royal Suite at the swanky Beverly Wilshire for a grown-and-sexy fete with no particular theme. 
"To me, this most important thing is that my friends just come and have a good time, nothing too forced," Richie told us while getting ready, husband Joel Madden at her side. 
In sparkly vintage red mini and spiked Louboutins, Richie received pals including Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, father Lionel Richie, Mindy Kalling, Samantha Ronson and Quincy Jones.
RichieBday2We pointed out that the Regent was quite an adult venue for someone just crossing the threshhold into her 30s, and she agreed: "I am so classy! Classy with a K, but classy. I'm almost there with the C."
Jokes aside, Richie opened up about her journey from reality-show wild child to married mother of two. 
"If life was about one lesson, we'd all be perfect. But it's not," she said. "I try to learn lessons every day. Life is about waking up and going out there and being the best version of you."
Her morning and afternoon were spent with daughter Harlow, 3, and son Sparrow, who celebrated his second birthday Sept. 9.
"Their life doesn't stop when it's my birthday. They have school and ballet and this and that. I was just a mom, which I'm totally happy being," she said, "My son just had his birthday, and they just don't care. They're birthdayed out! We just had the cake and the song and the whole bit." 
Richie did enjoy some tiny spoils, however, such as a tiered birthday cake with gold detail, a dance-off in the suite led by emcee Ronson and the obligatory playing of her dad's hit "All Night Long."
A video montage was projected starring her kids and close ones, and the Winter Kate designer did land one exclusive gift — the unreleased Samsung Galaxy SII, which she used to snap pics of her guests throughout the evening.
"I'm so excited about this new chapter in my life and so ready for something new," Richie said. "So many of my girlfriends say that your 30s are the best. I couldn't be more ready."
