Alanis Morissette talks breastfeeding

HollywoodNews.com: Alanis Morissette is enjoying her new role as a mother so much so that she thinks she has it all figured out.
Morisette recently opened up about attachment parenting and how she thinks it is the right thing to do, states UsMagazine.com. “I’ll breastfeed and I’ll be breastfeeding until my son is finished and he weans … I think it affords the child, when he grows up, to have a lot less therapy to go to. For me, I protect his safety and his well-being and his attachment,” Morissette commented.
But that isn’t the only connection she focuses on with her child: “We’re definitely skin-on-skin connected as much as possible.”

Hollywood TV Review: ‘Weeds’ season six opener — smart, but slow

By Anthony D’Alessandro
HollywoodNews.com: The “Weeds” season six opener of “Thwack” unfortunately doesn’t live up to its pointed title, however, the good news is that creator Jenji Kohan is finally moving the Botwin family away from the Mexican border after they’ve overstayed the drama there for the last two seasons.
The episode, like many “Weeds” season openers, begins promptly after its finale’s riveting cliffhanger, but the pacing slows. Nancy gathers her chicks, err sons, after young teen Shane kills Pilar, the dastardly political consultant to her Mexican beau Esteban, with a croquet mallet. In season 5, Pilar was grooming Esteban as a candidate in the race for Mexico’s governor. She felt Nancy’s family was an unsavory part of his life. Thus, Pilar threatened to kill Shane and Silas. Feeling his mother’s luck was running out, Shane offed Pilar into the pool.
Fearing Esteban’s wrath over the murder, Nancy flees the scene of the crime at Pilar’s mansion and proceeds to collect her belongings at Esteban’s house. In need of a bigger car, specifically her brother-in-law Andy’s new mini-van, she heads over to his pad where he’s contending with problems of his own. Gayle, an anti-abortionist protester and crazed lover of Andy’s fiancé Audra, has tied her up with a crossbow pointed at her head. Andy looks like a schmuck having dashed out of the house. Nancy devises a save-face plan for Andy to re-enter and battle Gayle. Though Nancy and Andy restrain Gayle, Audra is offended that Andy failed to protect her initially. Furthermore, it is obvious he still has feelings for Nancy. Hence, Andy decides to go on the lamb with Nancy.
Kohan’s gift remains her ability to uniquely draw out dramatic scenes and heighten them like a playwright. However, this can work for and against the show’s longevity and in “Thwack” Kohan’s talents have their high and low points.
Rather than propelling the action promptly, the characters are reduced to bickering over minutiae before embarking on their next move. Nancy, Silas and Shane squabble as they pack the car. When Nancy arrives at Andy’s, he’s obsesses for some time about his failure to protect Audra before they devise a plan to nab Gayle. These chit-chats are a wonderful technique for painting personalities – but we’re already acquainted with the Botwin posse. [...]

Katy Perry song ‘Circle the Drain’ targets ex-boyfriend

HollywoodNews.com: A song on Katy Perry’s new album “Teenage Dream” bashes her ex-boyfriend Travis McCoy, who is the singer behind the summer hit single “Billionaire.”
In 2008, Perry and McCoy were an on and off item. They broke up after New Year’s 2009.
Page Six got a chance to hear Perry’s song “Circle the Drain” in which she jabs at McCoy:
“Thought I was the exception/ I could rewrite your addiction/ You could have been the greatest/ But you’d rather get wasted/ You fall asleep during foreplay/ ‘Cause the pills you take are more your forté/ I’m not sticking around to watch you go down/ Wanna be your lover/ Not your [bleep]ing mother.”
“You think you’re so rock and roll/ But you’re really just a joke/ Had the world in the palm of your hand/ But you [bleep]ing choked.”

In an interview with Billboard, Perry said that the song was akin to the femme rant song “You Oughta Know” by Alanis Morissette.
McCoy, like Perry’s fiancé Russell Brand, is a reformed drug addict.
“Teenage Dream” hits stores on Aug. 24.

Lee DeWyze is the 2010 American Idol

Hollywoodnews.com: Lee DeWyze was crowned the 2010 “American Idol” champion in a ceremony that also gave a warm-hearted goodbye to lead judge and producer Simon Cowell.
Night’s highlights included a performance by Alice Cooper and Crystal Bowersox’s duet with Alanis Morissette – a moment, according to the L.A. Times exhibited “that she (Bowersox), more than any other Season 9 finalist, deserved to be standing on that stage.” Also Paula Abdul gave a sweet tribute to Cowell.
DeWyze won over judges and voters with his raw power and down-to-earth sensibility, not to mention his choice of classic songs like Simon and Garfunkel’s “The Boxer” versus Bowersox’s more eclectic line-up. Also, the show tends to laud those who are a bit wet behind their ears and grow, like DeWyze, versus the more experienced (i.e. Bowersox was as seasoned as former “Idol” runner-up, Melinda Doolittle).
DeWyze hails from Mount Prospect, Illinois.
