  • Water Wigs

    Commercial advertising photographer Tim Tadder has a thing for water, as seen in his "Fish Heads" series. He calls his newest wet works "Water Wigs," and while the basic concept is simple, capturing the moments is the tricky part.

  • Remarks by Salma Hayek in an interview she gave to the German edition of Vogue magazine have landed her in hot water with some people who share her heritage.

    The actress was discussing her role as the head of a ruthless Mexican drug cartel in Oliver Stone's film "Savages" when she told the magazine, as translated from German to English, "I am proud to have been involved in this film with all these great actors."

    Then she said, "Honestly, I hardly had any memories of what it is to be Mexican. My life is completely different now."

    The Huffington Post reports the remark brought a strong response from the Hispanic blog Guanabee, which posted: "What did Salma mean by basically saying that she's too French and rich for our blood?"

  • More trouble for Randy Travis: The singer was slapped with a simple assault citation early Friday morning following an altercation in Plano, Texas.

    Plano Police Department spokesman David Tilley tells that Travis was not arrested and, despite internet reports, there is no indication that he was intoxicated at the time of the incident.

    Tilley said the department also has no record of the singer's being transported to the hospital by the town's fire department, as had been reported earlier. Tilley said all the parties involved refused transportation to the hospital.

    According to Tilley, Travis intervened in a verbal disagreement between an estranged husband and wife. Travis is a friend of the wife.

    "He stepped in and allegedly assaulted the man in some form," Tilley said, adding that it was minor because he was only cited for a Class C assault.

    Tilley explained that a Class C can be as simple as an unwanted touch to any physical contact that doesn't cause

    Goalkeeping coach ruins Mourinho TV blackout

    Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho said that his plans to stop his players following Manchester City's game against Liverpool prior to the League Cup final were thwarted by his goalkeeping coach. City lost 2-1 at Liverpool on Sunday, leaving Chelsea five points clear of the defending champions at the top of the Premier League table with a game in hand. Hours later, Chelsea beat Spurs 2-0 at Wembley in the League Cup final and Mourinho revealed afterwards that his attempts to keep his players in the dark about events at Anfield had been inadvertently undermined by excitable goalkeeping coach Silvino Loura.
