Jaime King Wears Her Heart On Her… Sweatshirt?
Celebrity Babies - People - about 3 years
x17; Courtesy Jamie King It’s been almost two months since Jaime King welcomed son James Knight. And like any new mom, the Heart of Dixie actress wants to keep her new bundle of joy as close to her as she can. That’s why we loved seeing the fresh-faced King playing up her new parental status with a cheeky message sweatshirt that read, “James Knight All Night” last Saturday. As every mama knows, humor is a great way to handle those sleepless nights. And King is known for taking a fun approach to all things baby — remember her Star Wars-themed shower? We also admire how put-together she looks after staying up with little James. King paired her comfy gray top with a faux fur scarf and Bardot‘s leopard slouch pant for an easy yet chic ensemble. TELL US: How would you describe your new baby style? Is comfort the key?

Celebrities Honor Michael Jackson In Wake Of Daughter's Hospitalization
Huffington Post - over 3 years
LAS VEGAS — Once was not enough. Less than 20 months after the debut of the first Cirque du Soliel show paying tribute Michael Jackson comes the second: "Michael Jackson ONE" Cirque president Daniel Lamarre said he'd planned two Jackson-inspired shows "from the first day we got the rights from the (Jackson) estate," with the first production, "Michael Jackson THE IMMORTAL WORLD TOUR," delivering a stadium-sized concert-type presentation and "ONE" a more intimate affair. The new show is something closer to what Cirque du Soliel usually serves up. It's a multimedia extravaganza that often flies high, but never loses sight of its inspiration. Saturday's world premiere attracted celebrities including musician Justin Bieber, as well as actors Neil Patrick Harris, Allison Janney and Alfre Woodard. Also in attendance were Michael Jackson's brothers Marlon, Tito and Jackie, the latter noting during arrivals that most of the Jackson family would be inside the thea ...

Huffington Post - about 4 years
Seann William Scott is a single man again. Scott has split from his fiancee Lindsay Frimodt, a Victoria's Secret model, ending their 11-month engagement, a representative for the "American Pie" actor told Us Weekly. "They remain friends," a source told the magazine. "It was a very amicable split." Scott proposed to Frimodt on Valentine's Day last year. The 35-year-old actor confirmed the engagement at the premiere of "American Reunion" in March, telling E! News, "I don't know how I got her. I'm just really lucky. She hadn't seen 'American Pie,' actually. Thank god. Otherwise I probably wouldn't be engaged." Scott, who has been romantically linked to January Jones and Jamie King, began dating Frimodt months after he checked into rehab for "personal and health issues." News of Scott's split comes on the heels of the premiere of "Movie 43," which also co-stars a host of celebrities, like Halle Berry, Hugh Jackman, Naomi Watts, Richard Gere, Chloe Moretz and Ann ...

MTV News - about 4 years
Goldie and Wendy are back in "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For," but don't expect actress Jaime King to have any secrets from set to share. Though she's already completed her part on the upcoming movie, King shot her scenes before any of her costars had been cast. "I was the first one to shoot on the very first day. I was like, 'So who else is going to be in the movie with me because I'm acting to five pieces of tape?' And they're like, 'Oh, they haven't been cast yet,'" King told MTV News. "Literally, five pieces of tape and someone's hand. They're like, 'This is the other actor." That didn't make it a bad experience for King, though. "You just roll with it with Robert Rodriguez because you can trust him," she said. "Literally I worked with not one single actor. I worked with literally tape. A roll of tape, and a hand." Since "A Dame to Kill For" will take place before "Sin City," King's prostitute twin sister characters will be back and better than ever (read: Goldie won't ...

Christopher Meloni Joins 'Sin City' Sequel As A Cop
MTV News - about 4 years
Joseph Gordon-Levitt isn't the only big name to join "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For." It turns out that "True Blood" and "Oz" star Christopher Meloni has also taken a role in the project. Deadline reports that Meloni is taking "a lead role in the film" and will be "playing a cop." As the site notes, this likely means he will be playing a "disreputable" character if the police in "Sin City: A Dame to Kill For" are as corrupt as the ones in the first film. Gordon-Levitt, on the other hand, will play "a cocky gambler who disguises a darker mission to destroy his most foul enemy at his best game." He's joined by Jamie King, Jamie Chung, Rosario Dawson, Mickey Rourke, Dennis Haysbert and Jessica Alba. It could be that even more major stars will join the upcoming sequel. Deadline claims that Josh Brolin is reportedly being courted for a role, while "there are several others from the original cast who'd be welcomed back." Chief among them is likely Clive Owen, who has yet to say whet ...

New Video: Lana Del Rey, 'Summertime Sadness'
MTV News - over 4 years
Lana Del Rey and Jamie King play star-crossed lovers in Lana's new 'Summertime Sadness' video. Remember how we got totally emotional for Lana Del Rey's Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis moment in "National Anthem?" Well, now we're getting even MORE teary-eyed over her tragic "Summertime Sadness" video. Yo, Lana, it'd be cool if you could stop making our mascara run. Even for like, 5 seconds. Watch Lana Del Rey's "Summertime Sadness" video after the jump.  Directed by Kyle Newman, the clip was shot using a retro, blown-out camera filter, and features cut-up footage of Lana and her onscreen lover, Jamie King, laughing and smiling together in the beautiful summer weather. Eventually, however, things turn sour and after a teary-eyed fight in a car and some incredibly despondent faces, Lana jumps off a cliff and plunges to her demise. (Sorry for the spoiler, but we had to.) Later, we learn that Jamie has done the exact same thing. It's debatable whether or not the two reunite in a bizarre ...

Malibu Lagoon restoration work begins on quiet note
LATimes - over 4 years
California State Parks employees on Monday salvaged some native wetland plants and captured 10 lizards in the Malibu Lagoon area as construction workers prepared to begin a controversial restoration project. The Western fence and side-blotched lizards will be relocated nearby, and the plants will be transplanted at the site once the project has been completed, said Jamie King, an environmental scientist with state parks. Scientists also plan to begin trapping small mammals for relocation once workers have fenced off the site, King said. A small group of activists turned out Monday morning to protest the work and a few volunteers for state parks were also on hand to begin photographing the site to provide documentation. The state had the go-ahead to start its work at the site Friday but agreed to postpone it until Monday to avoid interfering with a weekend surfing event at Surfrider Beach. Opponents contended that the delay was prompted by concerns about the state's plan to d ...

Casper Smart To Choreograph New Jennifer Lopez Tour
The Inquisitor - almost 5 years
Casper Smart used to be one of Jennifer Lopez’s backup dancers. But now, in addition to dating the megastar, he is running the whole show. Lopez announced today that Smart would be the supervising choreographer for her new tour. Lopez said: “I’m working with Jamie King, also Beau ‘Casper’ Smart is my new choreographer. Beau [Casper Smart] is helping… He’s supervising choreographer and we’re just working together to make the best show that we can make.” The International Business Times reports that Smart has appeared in several of Lopez’s videos and has danced with her on tour, but this will be the first time that he has some creative control over Lopez.

Smart has worked with Eminem, Beyonce, and on TV shows like “So You Think You Can Dance” and “America’s Best Dance Crew.” Lopez will start her Summer tour on July 14th with a show in Montreal. ...

Beleb Dirty Laundry - almost 5 years
It was the grand finale of "Q'Viva! The Chosen" (Sat., 11 p.m. ET on Fox) and Jennifer Lopez, Marc Anthony and Jamie King couldn't have been more proud of the group they'd gathered to represent Latin culture to the popular world via their big stage production at Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas. The show has been divided into five categories: Latin culture, passion, pride, ritual and unity. And in this finale, the remaining contestants had their last chance to impress the judges and show that they belong in one of those categories, and on that stage representing their passion and their country. It was a tense elimination, quickly replaced by relief and excitement as the cuts were very small and the focus turned to the May 26 premiere. And for that, Lopez and Anthony had a surprise for the cast. "We've decided that for opening weekend here at the Mandalay Bay, Marc and I are going to be in the show with you guys presenting you to the entire world," Lopez told the assembled pe ...
