Showbiz Roundup: Shhh, did you hear?

Rihanna A Bad Role Model?
Rihanna has admitted to Oprah Winfrey last night that she misses her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown, despite the fact that he was charged with assaulting her three years ago. The singer told the talk show hostess that says Brown ‘made a mistake’ and ‘needed help’ adding that she misses him. She said she “felt protective” of Brown following the 2009 beating that occurred after the Grammy Award ceremony. “I lost my best friend. Like, everything I knew switched – switched overnight,’ she tearfully said of the ’embarrassing’ incident. Who’s gonna help him? Nobody’s gonna say he needs help. Everybody’s gonna say he’s a monster without looking at the source. I was more concerned about him.’ Her admissions have angered charities however as they feel it sends the wrong message to battered women. “Rihanna’s case demonstrates the emotional complexities felt by women locked in abusive relationships,” Vivienne Hayes, chief executive of the Women’s Resource Centre. “Whatever the nature of the argument, [Brown] chose to beat her up. And we need to stop society allowing us to normalise such behaviour.”
Despite her confessions Rihanna does seem to have learnt from her past relationships saying she now knows what she is looking for in a man. “If I had it my way I want a man that loves me, cherishes me, values me, but they have to know my value in order to value me,” she said. “‘They have to know my worth and they can only know my worth if I know my worth. I want them to respect me.” Absolutely!

Shia LaBeoufShia LaBeouf To Film Sex Scenes For Real
While many actors will throw themselves into a role and do things for real, such as the stunts, only a few non-adult film actors have been prepared to do the sex scenes for real, especially with a film crew as an audience. However Shia LaBeouf  has revealed that in his new movie, The Nymphomaniac, nothing is off-limits, including the scripts sex scenes.  “[The movie] is what you think it is,” Shia, told MTV News. “For instance, there’s a disclaimer at the top of the script that basically says we’re doing it for real. Everything that is illegal, we’ll shoot in blurred images. Other than that, everything is happening.”
The film, which is too be directed by controversial Danish director Lars Von Trier, is set to have two versions, an explicit one and a one that will pass the censors without getting an X rating.  “[Von Trier] is very dangerous,” Shia says. “He’s the most dangerous dude that I’ve ever showed up for. I’m terrified. I’m so terrified, which is why I have to go. We’ll see what happens.” The film, about a woman discovering her hidden erotic desires, will also star Nicole Kidman, Willem Dafoe and Charlotte Gainsbourg. Judging by the success of Fifty Shades, we guess that the explicit one will be popular…

 Kristen Stewart and Robert PattinsonR-Patz Friends Don’t Want Him To Get Back With Kristen
Robert Pattinson’s close friends Sienna Miller and Tom Sturridge  have been “begging Rob to end it for good [with Kristen Stewart],”  says a source close to Pattinson. “They think she will hurt Rob again.” Meanwhile, the actress, who hasn’t been seen in public since the humiliating revelation of her affair with director Rupert Sanders, has yet to say anything more about her relationship with Pattinson since her public apology, but recently pulled out of the MTV Video awards to avoid an awkward moment with her former boyfriend. And Twilight fans are set for further disappointment as both Kristen and Robert as well as their co-star Taylor Lautner, have pulled out of upcoming conventions. Kristen’s former co-star from Panic Room Jodie Foster have offered the young actress some advice by saying that despite her troubles, “that this too will pass.” Wise words from an actress who survived Hollywood starting at the early age of three!

Guess Who – Secret Gossip
[Blind Gossip] This very popular young performer is so much fun! And so upbeat! At least, that’s the side you see. What you don’t see is her dark side. The one that causes her to hurt herself.
The good news is that there is an explanation, and that there are medications that can help her a lot. The bad news is that she refuses to take them because she doesn’t want to “lose her personality”. You see, she was recently diagnosed as having bipolar disorder, and she thinks that the medication will turn her into a zombie who can’t create or have fun or enjoy life.
She is already acting out in public, and her friends, family, and S.O. fear that she is heading toward a Britney-style meltdown. They really don’t want to have her committed or put her under a conservatorship, but if she continues to refuse, they may have to take drastic action. In the interim, she continues to take her body to extremes in public, and to self-harm by cutting and burning herself and pulling out small clumps of her hair in private. Not exactly a party.
