A shit load of things went wrong at the hard rock cafe in Vegas last night. Here's a letter from Jodie, about what happened. Everything is true and if you support Jackson Rathbone or any of the members from 100 Monkeys, please read this and pass it on.


(Jodie's letter)

100 Monkeys At The Hard Rock Las Vegas
This is not going to be my official Vegas blog, this isn't going to contain the *wonderful* moments that happened with 100 Monkeys, this blog is just here to tell you all the SHIT the guys went through last night while playing the Hard Rock Cafe on the strip in Las Vegas.

NEVER SEE A CONCERT THERE.
NEVER EAT THERE.

They do not deserve your patronage.

100 Monkeys were supposed to take the stage at 1145p and apparently were supposed to be off the stage at 130a. The sound crew was apparently having the worst case of technical difficulties known to man because after the first opening act, The Rooks, the next band, Imagine Dragons, was literally on stage fucking with their equipment and trying to hear themselves in the monitors for 35 minutes. They still had not started their set when the Monkeys were supposed to take the stage.

[We had seen the 100 Monkeys soundcheck earlier in the day and it went on without a hitch, everything was fine -- a few adjustments were made, of course, but it was all fine... what could have possibly gone wrong?]

Imagine Dragons was very professional; they started the set even though they couldn't hear themselves in the 2 front monitors just because it was getting so late. They were worth the wait, they were fantastic. (More on them in the official blog.)

After each song the lead singer of Imagine Dragons would ask to be able to hear himself more citing that he "had no vocal on the stage", meaning that he couldn't hear himself at all -- that's an extremely important thing to a live performer in order to create the best show possible.

They wrapped their set and shortly after the boys took the stage, tuned their instruments and did their usual, "we'll be back in five," kinda deal...

They didn't end up going on stage until right about 1230.

They were constantly asking for more vocal, more vocal, more vocal - less bongos, less bass drum, more vocal.

It came time for the improv song and Jerad went down the line, he looked at me and my friends and I had decided before the show what we were going to ask them to sing, "Lipstick On My Collar". They took our suggestion...

About halfway through the performance and after asking during the performance for more vocal Jackson grabbed the mic stand -- now, I can't be completely positive but I think it was a combination between not being able to hear himself, being frustrated about not being able to hear himself and getting into the performance - he broke the mic stand. He slammed the base of it against the stage several times until the bottom of it broke.

After that he held the stand without the base until he became frustrated with that and tossed it aside.

It wasn't long after that - 145a that the guys said they were going to take a quick break and then come back on for their encore.

Before the guys came back on 2 guys came up on stage and started breaking down a few things, grabbing the broken mic stand and said that the guys would not be coming back out. A lot of people had left when they left the stage for the first time and this pushed out a lot of the others -- I knew that the guys were going to break down and pack up their own equipment, so we stayed put where we were in the front row.

Jackson's beer was setting by a mic stand and by the foot pedals for the guitar, when one of the guys was taking a cord apart, he knocked over the beer and soaked their control board for the guitar pedals. He didn't care, I grabbed the beer as quickly as I could, but a lot spilled very quickly.

When someone asked this guy on stage why the guys weren't coming back out he said, "because the band is being a bunch of assholes." I promptly stopped that shit right there and I snapped back, "don't call them assholes, if you're pissed about the mic stand maybe your sound guys should know what the fuck they were doing - it's just a fucking mic stand and you shouldn't be pissed at them for it, I'll pay for it if it's that much of a hassle to you, just don't fuck with the band." He stood there and just kind of stared at me.

A few minutes later they came back on stage and Jackson announced that they were not allowed to do their encore; that "the Hard Rock Cafe will not let 100 Monkeys play anymore" saying that he was so very sorry and thanks for coming out.

Jackson and Jerad came over to us, thanking us over and over, holding our hands and apologizing to us/the fans.

We got a moment to talk to Jackson about what happened with the Hard Rock - he said they were giving them a hard time from the moment they got here. He said to go online and make it known about what really happened. Johnson said they were upset, but just wanted to get out of there.

Jackson was so visibly upset, trying to control it, but this had made all of them so mad - he was standing on the left side of the stage when the rude guy started with him - Jackson looked & pointed to us and said, "[they] saw everything," and then I said back to him, "we are going to support 100 Monkeys; we're taking their side. That guy spilled your beer on your equipment." He asks me, "which guy, this guy?" I nodded. Jackson looks at the guy and starts to "rawr", he then quickly asked for his name - he replied (it was something with an "M") and then he extended his hand to shake Jackson's. Jackson walked away.

I pulled Jerad aside amongst the chaos and told him that the guy had spilled Jackson's beer. He lifted up the board and there was beer all under it. He asked who it was, I pointed and Jerad bolted over to him, asking his name, asking what the fuck...

Ultimately, I heard that the Hard Rock was mad because the guys were supposed to be off at 130 - however, they could have played had Imagine Dragons gone on stage on time. (The Hard Rock's fault; not theirs.)

The boys told us they had planned another 30 minutes of songs, but were asked to leave.

They were mad because Jackson broke the mic stand. (He wouldn't have done so had the sound been working properly, I firmly believe that. I don't think he was just *that* into the improv song about lipstick.)

The boys were banned from ever playing the Hard Rock Cafe Las Vegas again (not sure about the other Hard Rock's, but I would assume that they wouldn't want to associate themselves with the Hard Rock any longer) - but even if they weren't it left such a nasty taste in their mouth that there's no way they would ever want to go back.

At the end of the night, after all of this shit that had gone down - instead of 100 Monkeys leaving and the Hard Rock Cafe being happy to get rid of them, someone I talked to said she overheard a conversation with one of the employees of the Hard Rock and Marty (the "bananager") in which the Hard Rock was demanding that 100 Monkeys PAY. Pay for damages, pay because the DJ that was supposed to go on stage after the Monkeys couldn't - PAY.

Fuck. That. Fuck. You.

If you were at the show last night, please write or call the Hard Rock and DEMAND that they apologize to 100 Monkeys.

I love all of those boys with so much of me - it felt amazing sticking up for them and helping them out when they needed it.

Peter Facinelli’s Video Diary on the set of Nurse Jackie



The Runaways premiered last night at Sundance, and you can read our review of it if you're so inclined. In it, we mention that this movie doesn't feature sweet and innocent Kristen Stewart (Bella from Twilight), nor is Dakota Fanning the cute, ear-piercing little girl from War of the Worlds. They're stretching their grown-up legs to portray Joan Jett and Cherie Currie, marching straight into sex, drugs, and rock 'n roll.


As part of a roundtable interview, we talked to Kristen and Dakota yesterday in Park City about the film, how much they got to work with Joan and Cherie, and what they think people are going to say about their brief but incendiary makeout session in the movie. Kristen, who's known for being reserved in interviews at times was definitely feeling very vocal. Check out the full interview just after the break.

With The Runaways, how did you come on board? Was it the characters or the role, or did you know the music? What was the first thing that came your way?

Kristen Stewart: The script. I knew about Joan Jett, which most people probably would say. But I didn't know anything about The Runaways and I thought it was really cool to see a character that was so different from who she seems to be now -- very self assured and she really, really knows who she is. So I thought it was cool to see her become that and then see the relationship between her and Cherie and see how sweet that is. It is just an interesting story.

Dakota Fanning: Yeah, same for me. I read the script and wasn't really familiar with The Runaways either, and just loved the relationship between them and things that I would get to do while playing Cherie.

How did you prepare for this role versus, say, some of your other roles?

Dakota: Well obviously, there was the singing, for me, that I had to prepare for, which was kind of a daunting task, but something that, I think, adds to the movie that I actually did it. It wasn't just her voice, you know. So yeah, I had to make it just like hers, which was kind of intimidating.

Kristen: Well, yeah. We had to make sure that we looked right and moved right. They had really, when you meet them, fancy footage from when they were younger. They have such specific idiosyncrasies. They are very ... they are like riddled with little particular details that make them ... as we all are, but theirs are really interesting and they are really dynamic. I don't know. They are just cool like that. But, preparing for a movie is always the same. There is no difference. It is just a big responsibility here because it is not just somebody that you are making up.

Well, we talked to Cherie, who said she feels like she is living in a dream because you are playing her in a film, Dakota. And Kristen, Joan said you guys had very similar energy. How much time did you get to spend with them before and during the production?

Dakota: A lot. I mean, they were there pretty much everyday, and I spent a lot of time with Cherie before we started filming. And yeah, I think it was important that they were there, just to ... it is their life, you know?

Kristen: We didn't have a whole lot of time either, because in pre-production, rehearsal-wise, we had a good ... we had a solid two weeks. And then before that, I had a week with Joan, just like shooting the shit. There was like a period of, 'let's feel this out and see how much we are willing to delve into personal aspects of your lives and how much we are willing to, like, disclose ourselves.' But it was so nice, because they were actually not just open to any actor who might be playing them. But we really liked each other. Like, instantly ... the four of us were pretty, you know ... there was just something really special and it was cool.

Did you play guitar already or did you have to learn how to do that?

Kristen: Yeah.

What was it like putting that ... I mean a rock and roll electric guitar, it is a great big phallic symbol. What was it like sort of strapping that on?

Kristen: No, totally. In fact, I don't know if I can say this ... whatever. I mean you can delete it or not.

Go for it.

Kristen: Whenever I wasn't coming from the right place, she was always like, "Kristen! P*ssy to the wood! F*ck the guitar!" I was like, "Okay."

[laughter]

Kristen: So when you have Joan Jett telling you to f*ck your guitar ... Yeah, I liked it.

Empowering?

Kristen: Yeah.

[muddled question about sexuality -- listen here]

Kristen: It's more, um, Joan's at least, and actually Cherie's is definitely. They're dominant, absolutely.

Dakota: But they're different.

Kristen: Yeah.

Dakota: They're different.

Kristen: Yeah. But they had to fight to be ... I mean people like girls to be sexy, and they did then too, but in a completely different way. They didn't want to get f*cked. They wanted to f*ck them. And that is not what Joan wanted.

Do you think The Runaways changed a lot? Do you think things are still the same for female musicians? I
mean, was that part of your attraction to the role, the fact that it is about something that is still ... there is still a bit of a taboo about women doing the same things?

Kristen: Yeah, that was a huge thing, and especially for Joan. It is still such a huge ... I mean, Dakota was saying something earlier. We are girls that have both been brought up thinking we can do whatever we want and there are a lot of very empowered females. But it just wasn't like that then. And I think that people don't really realize that The Runaways were the first girls to play music like that. And it could have been someone else, but it wasn't. It was them. And so, it is, I think, an interesting story for a movie.

The Twilight franchise is a big thing, and you have a lot of young fans. This film is very descriptive and it shows a lot of stuff. Were you hesitant at all with the huge amount of people that follow you?

Kristen: I have a fan base that apparently, like, you know, people ... it is not that they look up to me. You have certain figures that they would like to be more like, and people really love Bella. I do too, but I am not her. I don't think anybody expects me to try to just, for the rest of my career, appease an audience that once liked Twilight. You know what I mean? I just think that that is crazy. I also ... it is always an afterthought. I will decide to do a movie and then go, "Oh, Twilight fans are probably going to react to this, or whatever." But that's always an afterthought. Like, I don't plan things out based on other people's opinions of how I think they are going to receive them. I do it for the experience.

Basically what I am saying is, I don't take that responsibility ... I just don't. I think that Joan's story is really something that you could learn from, and also Welcome to the Rileys. I don't believe in censorship. I think that both these movies are rated R and these kids, you know, if it is too much for them, then they shouldn't watch.

Do you think that is unfortunate, though, because Cherie said, "You know, that is just how it was in the '70s. Sexuality was ambiguous. That is how life was." This is going to be, for better or worse, one of those button issues people will talk about in this movie, the moment between you and Dakota. Do you think that is unfortunate because that is going to happen because of who you guys are versus who they were?
Kristen: People are always going to find the one sort of like weird, sort of buzzworthy thing about a movie and run with it. I don't think it has ... I don't think it's relevant. It's not a romantic relationship. They are like best friends and it is a love story, so it is sort of like ... it's a fleeting love story and they both realize that it's like, "Yeah, this is cool right now." But it's not like the big makeout scene in The Runaways is like ... they are just ... it's just something they...

Dakota: And especially when you read the script, like, it is not just a ...

Kristen: It just pops up!

Dakota: ...a big thing. It's like, "Okay, great."

Kristen: They even talk about it afterwards. It's like, "What happened? I don't even ... why did that happen?" And then, I think, it's cool. They don't go any further with it. It's like, "Yeah. That's it."

Talk a little bit about the day that scene was actually filmed. What was it like on set? Was there any discomfort between you two?

Kristen: We had done a song that day that was in the roller rink, and we had done "I Love Playin' With Fire," so I was way, way, way more worried about that than having to ... I don't know. I remember, like, kicking off extras that were trying to take pictures with their cell phones.

Dakota: Yeah, yeah.

First-time director Anthony Burns ignored the struggling-filmmaker superstition about not coming to Sundance before you have a film in the fest and came last year.


This year he's back with his first feature, "Skateland," and he seemed more than pleased in introducing the film -- he seemed almost zen. "This feels right," he said about having the film open at Sundance.

The movie is set in a small Texas town in 1983 and is the kind of kinda-funny, kinda-earnest coming-of-age story that John Hughes might have made. (It's no surprise that the film is dedicated to Hughes at the end).

Shiloh Hernandez Fernandez stars as a budding writer whose post-high-school life is stagnating. He's the manager of a local skating rink that's closing down, and his girlfriend, played by "Twilight's" Ashley Greene, is going off to college with or without him. Obviously, the kid is going to have some lessons to learn.

The added fun of the film, for those who were alive during the '80s anyway, is all the era-specific details tucked into the corners of the frame. "He-Man's" Battle Cat is tucked onto a shelf, the teen writer works on a Commodore 64 hooked up to the tiny TV in his bedroom, and teenagers practice their moonwalk. And that's not even touching on the soundtrack, which includes all the usual '80s suspects including A Flock of Seagulls, REO Speedwagon and Talking Heads, among many others.

The crowd seemed mostly positive on the film, though one female audience member groused afterwards, "It's fine, I guess, but 'Dazed and Confused' was better."

Still, most everyone we talked to -- both young and old -- seemed to like it, as you'll see below:

It's been a busy year for 'The Twilight Saga' star Peter Facinelli who has been juggling his schedule between shooting 'Eclipse,' the next film in the vampire franchise, with his role as Dr. Fitch Cooper on "Nurse Jackie." ET caught up with the jet-lagged actor to talk about both projects and his addiction to Twitter.


ET: You have a huge following on Twitter. What made you start?

Peter Facinelli: I just enjoy what Twitter is because I can really connect with the fans. It is a great way to share information with them and it is a good way to entertain. I like being able to put a smile on people's faces and mix that up with sharing information with them. That's important. Also, letting them know what I am doing. I have had people come to me and say, "Will you tweet this out?" There is like paid advertisement stuff. I am not into that. I want to keep my Twitter pure. I don't want to sell my followers anything, I want to be able to have that base, so I can tell them what I am doing and entertain them

ET: What will we learn about Dr. Carlisle Cullen in 'Eclipse'?

Peter Facinelli: You get to see a side of Carlisle you haven't seen before. There are some great battle sequences.

ET: Any word on 'Breaking Dawn'?

Peter Facinelli: I don't know. Usually, the fans know before we do.

ET: Did you ever think that 'Twilight' was going to do so much for your career?

Peter Facinelli: The fan base has been so phenomenal. When you go to an event, people have flown in from other countries just to take a picture with you. That is a loyal fan base that you can't even imagine having. I am thankful for all of them. That is why I try to give back in connecting with them [on Twitter].

ET: You were filming both projects at the same time. How did you juggle?

Peter Facinelli: I have had a very crazy schedule. There was a whole month where I was shooting 'Eclipse' and "Nurse Jackie" at the same time. And I actually enjoyed it because I enjoy what I do, so when I show up for work, it's very invigorating, and I get energized by it. So there were times where I'd get off an airplane from a red-eye and have, like, three hours sleep and then go straight to work.

ET: Dr. Fitch Cooper is a different type of doctor than Carlisle. Was that part of the attraction of the role?

Peter Facinelli: It was actually really fun for me to do such contrasting roles because Carlisle is such a calming force; he's a rock, and he's a foundation of this family. And Coop is none of that. He runs around like he's had four cans of Red Bull. So to be able to do those two contrasting roles where, in one character, I'm very still and the other one, he's very energized, was a lot of fun for me.

ET: Did you wear a wig to go back and forth?

Peter Facinelli: Because I was doing both projects at the same time, I wore a wig. There were days when I
was literally running hours in the forest; then, I would jump on a plane and be on the "Nurse Jackie" set. I was going from Vancouver to New York like every three days.

ET: Is it hard to switch gears?

Peter Facinelli: For me it was invigorating. In the first two episodes of "Nurse Jackie" [for the new season] where I was crying, it came out of me just being emotionally exhausted. It wasn't written that I was crying. All of a sudden in the middle of the scene, I broke down and started crying. It felt right for the scene. I did takes in which I wasn't crying. Because I had just been dumped by Jackie and there was all this heavy emotion going on, it worked for the scene. I think it was me just getting off an airplane, having three hours sleep and just being that vulnerable that it hit me that hard.

ET: How dangerous is Dr. Cooper? Is he a better doctor than we think he is? Is he a worse doctor than we think he is? Should we be scared to have doctors like him?

Peter Facinelli: The interesting thing to me is you go to hospitals or you go see your doctor, and what you see is the white coat. And so you want to believe that they have all the answers, and you want to believe that they have more knowledge, but you don't know what they're doing in the back room. You don't know what their personalities are without that white coat. It was interesting because when I did 'Twilight,' I went and met with a doctor, and I hung out with him at the hospital. And his demeanor at the hospital was completely different than when we went and had dinner together. And so I think when Coop is with patients, he puts on a very doctorly -- there's a very doctorly side of him, and people have confidence in him. Is he a good doctor? I say it depends on what day of the week it is. He could, you know, cure you of some crazy disease that no other doctor could, or he might kill you with an ear infection. You just never know what you're going to get with him. That's part of the fun in playing him. But I think he tries. And I think he's an interesting character because he also doesn't have the confidence, so he tries to put on a persona to cover that up and tries to be overconfident at times. And Jackie (Edie Falco) just sees right through him.

ET: What kind of doctor is Carlisle?

Peter Facinelli: Carlisle is the head of the hospital. He is great because he has been around so long, he is very educated. He has a real love for humanity. People always ask me what kind of research I did to play a vampire. I said I did very little because I play a vampire who is trying to be human, who loved humanity so much that he wanted to hold on to that. When you look at something like 'Twilight,' the good vampires are not necessarily good; they're eccentric. The bad vampires are just doing what they're born to do. So for me, Carlisle is just holding on to his humanity; he doesn't want to be a vampire.

The second season of "Nurse Jackie" premieres Monday, March 22 on Showtime. 'The Twilight Saga: Eclipse' flies into theaters on June 30.

MTV's Hollywood Crush just posted an article about Rob's segment on the telethon:

While aid efforts for Haiti began shortly after the earthquake, tonight, some of Hollywood's biggest stars got together to bring further awareness to the cause. Amonst them was "Twilight" star Robert Pattinson, who stressed the importance of technology during this crisis.

Robert, who appeared on camera from London, shared the story of a girl in Haiti who had been buried under a flattened university for nearly six days, praying that someone would find her. Finally, on the sixth day, rescuers discovered her because of a text message sent from underneath the rubble.
Amazing.

The story was just one example of how technology, including Twitter, Facebook and texting, has shaped the response to the earthquake in Haiti.

Here is Rob's speech in full:

"Underneath a flattened university, Maxine Fallon waited. She was crouched in a fetal position and could barely move. In the darkness and during the hectic sounds of the day, through the pain, the hunger and thrist, she prayed that someone would find her. And on the sixth day her prayers were answered, she was found because of a text message from the rubble sent rescuers to her side. Unlike any other event in history, our world has been connected to this tragedy because of technology. Twitter updates, Facebook pages with pictures of the missing and text messages for help. This technology is working right now to connect us, too. At hopeforhaitinow.org, you can donate and you can instantly interact with people in Haiti and anywhere in the globe. Join with those watching and see what they're saying about something we all care deeply about — helping the Haitian people get back on their feet. Please go to hopeforhaitinow.org. Thank you."

Read full article here.
Robert of course, was just one of the "Twilight" stars to participate in the benefit to help Haiti. Across the pond in L.A, his "New Moon" costars Taylor Lautner and Anna Kendrick answered calls from people interested in making a donation.

Kristen Stewart: Pole Dancing Hurts!


Welcome to the Rileys was a real pain for Kristen Stewart—literally.


In the much buzzed about indie flick, she plays a 16-year-old stripper who is taken in by a married man, played by James Gandolfini...

"I did some pole dancing," Stewart told me Saturday at the movie's premiere at the Sundance Film Festival. "I got bruises all over my legs. I tore myself up doing it. It sucked."

Oddly enough, she kinda enjoyed it. "The more I saw it, the more I wanted it," Stewart said. "It was like a weird self-hating kind of thing."

Yikes!

As reported elsewhere, “Twilight” actor Taylor Lautner will be at the event.

Cosmo Fashion with Kellan Lutz

Ashley Greene is all about sexing things up these days — the Twilight star recently stripped down to nothing but body paint for a SoBe Lifewater campaign, and she's decked out in black leather and a see-through bodysuit for the February issue of Interview that hits newsstands next Tuesday. One of the photos is perhaps NSFW, but there's more Ashley hotness with a behind-the-scenes video on the magazine's website. Ashley responded to questions asked by her costar in the series Michael Sheen about scoring her vampire role, leaving Florida for LA, and her upcoming movie The Apparition.







•On growing up in Florida: "It was great. I mean, it was great until I realized that there was more out there. I went to a public high school with a magnet program for law and psychology. But right before my junior year, I decided that I wanted to leave and become an actress, so I graduated early and moved out to LA. Now that I’m here, I can’t imagine living there."

•On getting the role of Alice Cullen: "It was just another audition. My managers were like, 'You’re going into a great casting office. They cast great projects. They’re sticklers. If you suck, they won’t call you back in.' So I was like, OK, I’ll pay extra attention. Then I figured out there wasn’t a script or a breakdown, but there was a book. So I got the series and fell in love with it. Then that determination kicked in and I was like, OK, I’m going to book this part is what’s going to happen. I worked my butt off for it."

•On what it's like being at the epicenter of the Twilight craze: "It’s a really hard thing to wrap your head around. I was working at a restaurant, I booked the role in Twilight, put in my two weeks’ notice, got fitted, flew to Portland, filmed, and then it started getting hype. That helped me get my foot into certain doors before the movie even came out. I did four independent films during the break between Twilight and New Moon. I haven’t even really had time to sit back and process it all. But when you do finally sit back and think about it, it’s incredible."
