T.I. RELEASED FROM PRISON, MOVED TO HALFWAY HOUSE

12/22/2009 1
Multi-platinum rapper T.I. got an early Christmas present when he stepped closer to freedom by being released from prison into a halfway house.


Atlanta rapper Clifford “T.I.” Harris Jr., was released from prison Tuesday morning after serving about 7 months at a low-security penitentiary in Forrest City, Ark. He is expected to serve the remainder of a reduced sentence in a correctional center near Fulton County Airport.

Harris' attorney Steve Sadow, who confirmed Harris' release, said it is "not out of the ordinary."

Harris was sentenced to a year and a day in prison for weapons charges resulting from an October 2007 incident when he was arrested for sending a bodyguard to purchase machine guns and silencers. Sadow said prisoners sentenced to 366 days are eligible for a 54-day sentence reduction for good behavior. The Bureau of Prisons will consider a prisoner with six months or less remaining on his or her sentence for a halfway house.

Harris was expected to report to Dismas Charities Atlanta West on Tuesday evening, Sadow said. He will remain there for about three months and will have to abide by the rules of that particular house. Typically, halfway house residents are allowed to leave the house during regular work hours and are allowed more contact with their families and communities.

Once Harris completes his time in the custody of the Bureau of Prisons in late March, he will still have to finish serving just under 500 hours of community service and about 23 days of home incarceration, Sadow said.

Still, it all seems to have worked out quite well for the platinum-selling recording artist who has had some 32 past arrests for weapons violations and a conviction for dealing crack cocaine. What could have been a 10-year prison sentence was dramatically reduced by a plea agreement, in which Harris was asked to publicly speak out about the error of his ways. That included talking to youth groups about avoiding the kind of life he has led, and a bonus MTV series (which did not count toward his community service credits) called "T.I.'s Road to Redemption."

CARRIE UNDERWOOD GETS ENGAGED TO NHL BOYFRIEND

12/22/2009 0
American Idol winner Carrie Underwood has more than one reason to celebrate this holiday season. Aside from riding high with her latest album 'Play On', the singer's beau Mike Fisher popped the question over the weekend.


Carrie Underwood and Ottawa Senator hockey player Mike Fisher are engaged, her rep tells UsMagazine.com.

"I'm happy to confirm that Carrie Underwood is engaged to Mike Fisher, and the couple couldn't be happier," the rep tells Us. "No wedding date has been set at this time."

According to the Ottawa Sun, he also confirmed the news at a press conference Monday. He said he popped the question Sunday, but declined to offer any other details. "It's true," he said. "We're both obviously excited and very happy."

His teammate Chris Neil said Fisher, 29, called him shortly after he proposed. "I think it's great," Neil told reporters. "It's a long time coming. There's going to be a lot of broken hearts in Ottawa with all those girls who are in love with Mikey."

Underwood, 26, and Fisher have mostly been hush-hush about their relationship since they began dating last year. But lately, they've been opening up. Underwood gushed about the hockey player, 29, on the liner notes of her new CD, Play On.

"Thank you #12," she wrote, referring to his jersey number. "You are the most amazing addition to my life! You are such a wonderful person and have had such an amazing hand in the building of this album and in the growth of me as a person. I love you so much! You make my life better in every way! I thank God for you every day... xoxo, Carrie."

He also praised her singing during a recent chat on The Sens Show, a Web news program for his team. "She can sing anything I like it when she sings a good rock song," he said.

He added that she was "very committed" and worked "extremely hard. She doesn't get too many days off a lot less days off than I get. She's always going." Despite their tough schedules, "we always find a way to make it work," he said.

Before romancing Fisher, Underwood has dated Dallas Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, Gossip Girl star Chace Crawford and former Bachelor star Travis Stork.

X Factor winner Alexandra Burke is scared to take the leap on "Fear of Flying", a new Stargate-produced cut from the recording sessions of 'Overcome'.




As one of those who thought 'Overcome' was really lacking in the material department, I can't help scratching my head at this cut not replacing some of its lesser offerings. By no means perfect, but definitely a step in the right direction.

KEVIN JONAS TRADES IN PURITY RING FOR A WEDDING BAND

12/21/2009 1
On Saturday (Dec. 19th), Kevin Jonas, the oldest member of the Jonas Brothers, exchanged vows with girlfriend Danielle Deleasa in New York.


Sorry, girls: Kevin Jonas is officially off the market!

The Jonas Brothers singer, 22, married his longtime girlfriend Danielle Deleasa Saturday in Long Island, New York, Usmagazine.com has confirmed. "It was beautiful," a source tells Us.

The singer's ceremony took place at Long Island's Oheka Castle, which also hosted the nuptials of *NSYNC's Joey Fatone and was featured in the Cameron Diaz-Ashton Kutcher flick What Happens in Vegas. Eonline reports that the snowy 5pm ceremony was attended by 400 -- including his brothers and bandmates, Nick and Joe, along with the brothers' good pal, Demi Lovato. Nick and Joe served as the best men.

How did Jonas propose to the former hairstylist, 22, whom he met on a trip to The Bahamas in 2007? He surprised her last July by showing up on her New Jersey doorstep with a three-carat solitaire cushion-cut diamond surrounded by 210 round, brilliant-cut pave diamonds. He designed the ring himself, with help from Jacob the Jeweler. "She said yes, yes, yes like 500 times super fast in a row," he said.

The sparkler wasn't the first ring Jonas picked out. In 2008, he told Details he was waiting until marriage to have sex -- and was wearing a promise ring from Tiffany's in the meantime.

Jonas says he's excited to become a married man -- if only for the home cooked meals! "She makes this chicken parm that’s legitimately unbelievable! She makes a good pasta, too. She's a good hometown Italian girl," he told the New York Daily News of Deleasa's culinary skills.

Last month, it was announced the brothers' Disney Channel series, J. O. N. A. S., had been picked up for a second season.

NEW MUSIC: LADY GAGA FEATURING DARKCHILD - 'RELOADED'

12/21/2009 1
Pop star Lady GaGa charges things up on "Reloaded", a new unreleased track that features producer Rodney 'Darkchild' Jerkins on rapping duties.




The cut represents a grittier and more urban-driven transition for the "Poker Face" songstress, and it doesn't exactly fit cohesively with 'The Fame Monster', which is likely why it wasn't included on its set list. That said, the track, despite the hard-hitting beat, can come across lackluster and just simply lacking.

BRITTANY MURPHY [1977 - 2009]

12/21/2009 1
Yesterday, actress Brittany Murphy, who starred in 'Clueless' and '8 Mile', suffered cardiac arrest and was announced dead at Cedars-Sinai.


Brittany Murphy died on Sunday morning, a spokesperson for the Los Angeles County Coroner's Office has confirmed to Access Hollywood. She was 32.

According to the Coroner's Office, Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Hollywood reported to them that an individual named Brittany Murphy died in the hospital on Sunday.

A Cedars-Sinai spokesperson also confirmed to Access that the star was pronounced dead at their facility at 10:04 AM.

A Los Angeles Fire Department spokesman told Access that they responded to a 911 call made from the 1800 block of N. Rising Glen Road -- the same street where the actress lives -- at 8 AM on Sunday.

A rep for the actress also confirmed the news, telling Access Hollywood, "In this time of sadness, the family thanks you for your love and support. It is their wish that you respect their privacy."

However, the star's family later issued a statement of their own.

"The sudden loss of our beloved Brittany is a terrible tragedy," they stated to Access. "She was our daughter, our wife, our love and a shining star. We ask you to respect our privacy at this time."

The LAPD confirmed to Access on Sunday that they have opened an investigation into the star's death. LA County Assistant Chief Coroner Ed Winter told Access at a press conference on Sunday evening that her death appeared to be from natural causes.

Just weeks ago, a smiling Brittany spoke with Access at the Tt Collection Pop-Up Party in LA on December 3, where she discussed her hopes for the coming year. "As far as having a New Year's resolution, I'd love to have a child next year," she said at the time. "But that's kind of a large one!"

The actress also spoke of her love for her family, whom she said she was very close to. "I've been very blessed to have a really great loving husband," she said. "I spend more time with my family than anyone else in the world"

Brittany rose to fame after a memorable role in 1995's "Clueless." She went on to star in such films as "8 Mile," "Just Married," "Girl, Interrupted," "Sin City" and "Riding In Cars With Boys," among others.

She also made a splash in the music world with the track "Faster Kill Pussycat," with Paul Oakenfold in 2006 - the track topped the Billboard Hot Dance Club Play Chart that year. She also sang a pair of songs for the animated film "Happy Feet," in which she was also a voice actress.

Brittany was married to screenwriter Simon Monjack, whom she wed in May 2007.
