  • 'Mad Men' Actress Lip-Synced 'Zou Bisou Bisou'

    "Zou Bisou Bisou" didn't happen on a whim. During a conference call with reporters today, "Mad Men" actress Jessica Pare said that for Sunday's season five premiere, in which Megan serenades Don at his 40th birthday party, she lip-synced along with a track she previously recorded.

    "I worked with David Carbonara, who does the music for the show, and I got to go into a real, grown up recording studio," she said. "We're hearing what I did in the recording studio."

    Prior to that, Pare said she listened to the French pop song "a whole lot" and Matthew Weiner, "Mad Men's" executive producer, "gave me some pretty comprehensive notes to go along with it." As for the viral popularity of the song and the fact that it's now available for download on iTunes, Pare said she's "thrilled."

    "I never thought I would make a single," she said, "let alone an actual, physical record, because there's a 7-inch vinyl out there too."

  • Exclusive: Kirk Cameron Responds to Critics, 'Hate Speech'

    Sheila Marikar at ABC News Blogs2 yrs ago

    Kirk Cameron is fighting back against the "hate speech" he feels he's endured since calling homosexuality "unnatural," "detrimental," and "ultimately destructive to so many of the foundations of civilization" during a Friday appearance on "Piers Morgan Tonight" to promote his new film, " Monumental."

    In an email statement released exclusively to today, Cameron said that when Morgan asked him to share his views on homosexuality, "I spoke as honestly as I could, but some people believe my responses were not loving toward those in the gay community. That is not true. I can assuredly say that it's my life's mission to love all people."

    "I should be able to express moral views on social issues," he said, "especially those that have been the underpinning of Western civilization for 2,000 years - without being slandered, accused of hate speech, and told from those who preach 'tolerance' that I need to either bend my beliefs to their moral standards or be silent when I'm in the public square."

  • Kim Kardashian: I Would Never Marry for Money

    “I do, you know, want to make clear that I would never marry for a TV show, for money, for anything like that,” she said today on the Australian radio show “ Kyle and Jackie O.”  ”And I think that’s really ridiculous that I have to even, you know, kind of defend that. But I guess that’s what comes along when you film your wedding for a reality show.”

    Indeed. Kardashian’s been repeatedly rebuking reports that she engineered her wedding for a payday, writing on her blog Tuesday night that she’s “donating the money for all the gifts to the Dream Foundation,” which presumably includes the reported $2.5 million she got from People magazine and the $12 to $15 million she earned from the E! TV special about her nuptials.
