THE KING OF POP IS DEAD!
Michael Jackson has passed away, multiple media outlets are reporting. The singer suffered a cardiac arrest Thursday afternoon and was rushed to the emergency room. When paramedics arrived at Jackson's home, he had no pulse and they never got a pulse back. Once at the hospital, the staff tried to resuscitate Jackson but they had no luck. Such a sad loss, especially for his three young children.
Daniel Radcliffe Fancies Older Women!
DanRad is the cover boy on this Sunday's issue of Parade, in which he dishes about being Harry Potter and his inclination toward older women. Here are some HIGHlights: On the difference between Daniel and Harry: “When I started out at the age of 10 or 11, I was essentially saying the lines as I myself would say them. When I became aware that that’s what I was doing, at 13 or 14, it didn’t make sense to change, because it would suddenly be a dramatic shift in the character.” On baring it all on Broadway: “As soon as we started doing the show, people went, ‘Oh! So this is not pornography—this is a play,’ It was mainly hyped beforehand. I didn’t set out to shock people. I set out to do something different from Potter. If I had wanted to shock people I would have played, you know, a gay drug dealer.” On older ladies: “Girls my own age are not really an option. I find, generally speaking, they have to be entertained more than older girls do. So most of the girls I have had serious things with are generally sort of in their 20s.”

First Look: Tim Burton's 'Wonderland'
"Off his rocker": Johnny Depp concocts another memorably trippy character as the Mad Hatter. Besides his Carrot Top mop, Depp undergoes a transformation with the addition of enlarged eyes tinted yellow. "He is so much fun and so nutty, I can't imagine anyone else doing it," says producer Richard Zanuck. The actor also employs an accent that Zanuck can only describe as indescribable. Wonderland was a peaceful kingdom until the Red Queen (Helena Bonham Carter) took power. "The creatures are ready to revolt and waiting for Alice to help them," says Zanuck. Bonham Carter has a digitally enhanced swelled head to play the domineering crimson ruler, who likes nothing better than to scream "Off with their heads!" The White Queen (Anne Hathaway), who was overthrown by her sister, "is beautiful but over the top. She doesn't walk. She floats. She's very eccentric," Zanuck says. You might have gone down the rabbit hole before. But never with a guide quite as attuned to the fantastic as Tim Burton. Those who have grown curiouser and curiouser about what the offbeat reinventor of Charlie and the Chocolate Factory might conjure up in his version of Alice in Wonderland can feast their eyes on this array of concept art and publicity images, due to hang in movie theaters this week to promote the March 5, 2010, release. "It has been Burton-ized" is how producer Richard Zanuck describes the director's vision of the Lewis Carroll classic. Many elements are familiar, from the enigmatic Caterpillar (Alan Rickman) to the fierce Jabberwock (Christopher Lee). But none has been presented in this sort of visually surreal fashion. "We finished shooting in December after only 40 days," Zanuck says. Now the live action is being merged with CG animation and motion-capture creatures, and then transferred into 3-D. The traditional tale has been freshened with a blast of girl power, courtesy of writer Linda Woolverton (Beauty and the Beast). Alice, 17, attends a party at a Victorian estate only to find she is about to be proposed to in front of hundreds of snooty society types. Off she runs, following a white rabbit into a hole and ending up in Wonderland, a place she visited 10 years before yet doesn't remember. Among those who welcome her back is the Mad Hatter, a part tailor-made for Johnny Depp as he collaborates with Burton for the seventh time. "This character is off his rocker," Zanuck says. Aussie actress Mia Wasikowska, 19, best known for HBO's In Treatment, has the coveted title role. "There is something real, honest and sincere about her," Zanuck says. "She's not a typical Hollywood starlet." There is the usual Burton-esque ghoulishness (Helena Bonham Carter's Red Queen, whose favorite retort is "Off with their heads," has a moat filled with bobbing noggins), but Zanuck assures most kids can handle it. "The book itself is pretty dark," he notes. "This is for little people and people who read it when they were little 50 years ago."
Most Overdone Spring Trend - Elaborate Head Ornamentation
These shots are from i-D (top left), French Vogue (top right), and British Vogue (bottom row). Junya Watanabe piled foliage on his models' heads for his spring show so stylists have been keen on coming up with ridiculous head ornamentation of their own all spring. Enough. It only distracts from the six-figure items of clothing they're showing us. And we don't want to be distracted!

Kristen Stewart as Joan Jett: This could be interesting...
I confess I was a little skeptical when I first heard that Twilight's Kristen Stewart would be playing Joan Jett in the big screen rock bio The Runaways. I've liked Stewart since her turn as Jodie Foster's no-nonsense kid in 2002's Panic Room, but her more recent incarnation as Twilight's damsel in distress didn't exactly scream "rock goddess" to me. (I will state, for the record, that Joan Jett could kick Edward's ass from here to that eternity he's living in.) But after seeing the latest photo of Stewart with her new black, shaggy rocker 'do, I will admit: It really does suit her, and I'm maybe, possibly beginning to see it. What about you? Are you starting to like the idea of Stewart as a Runaway?

Emma Gets Fashionable
Burberry has picked Harry Potter actress Emma Watson to be the new face for their ad campaigns. Watson was photographed by Mario Testino for the Burberry ads wearing a trench coat and the ever classic Burberry scarf from their autum/winter collection. Reports are that Watson got paid six figures to be the new face of Burberry! Not bad. Burberry’s creative director, Christopher Bailey, says, "Having known and admired the lovely Emma Watson for quite some time, she was the obvious choice for this campaign. Emma has a classic beauty, a great character and a modern edge. I felt Emma would be strong enough to hold the campaign as the only girl, and I loved the idea of her being surrounded by these young, cool British guys."

Best Vintage Photograph - British Vogue
British Vogue did a fantastic story this month where they asked designers, stylists, and photographers to choose the one image that changed their lives and forever altered their perspectives. Philip Lim chose this 1991 Peter Lindbergh shot of Helena Christensen, Stephanie Seymour, Karen Mulder, Naomi Campbell, Claudia Schiffer, and Cindy Crawford. This moment will never get old.
