In movie news, they have announced there will be a 'Magic Mike' Sequel. Hey, maybe this one will have a real story to go with it. Though with enough alcohol it just doesn't matter. To hear more on this sequel, hop on over to Spank's Blog, where she has a lot to say on this matter!
Matthew McConaughey: 'Magic Mike' Sequel Confirmed!
Matthew McConaughey makes his way back into his hotel after appearing at ITV Studios on Wednesday (July 11) in London, England.
The 42-year-old actor is promoting his hit film Magic Mike abroad alongside his co-star Channing Tatum.
During a takeover of Glamour UK‘s Twitter account this morning, Channing confirmed to his fans that he is working on a Magic Mike sequel.
“Yes yes and yes! We’re working on the concept now. We want to flip the script and make it bigger,” Channing wrote.
A biographer, writing on the life of Mick Jagger says the rocker has slept with 4000 women. Wow, that really makes him seem more attractive. (read with sarcasm) Seriously, when has he not been a skinny @ssed lollypop head with a huge mouth? (translation: when has he ever been "sexy")
Mick Jagger, who counts David Bowie as one of his sexual conquests says, 'everyone knows that everyone is basically bisexual,'.
Ummmm... speak for yourself there, Johnny lips... nope, sorry. I'm not.
Mick Jagger Sex Life: Rocker Slept with 4000 Women, Biographer Says
The Huffington Post | By Kiki Von Glinow
Awesome or despicable, Mick Jagger has reportedly slept with more than 4,000 women during his sexual career, biographer Chris Andersen reveals.
"Mick Jagger has slept with 4,000 women over the course of his life, and in retrospect, I think that might be kind of a low figure."
The author told "Extra" that among the rock star's numerous conquests are Carla Bruni, Angelina Jolie, Uma Thurman, Farrah Fawcett (very briefly) and Carly Simon. Andersen also includes David Bowie among Jagger's past sexual partners -- although the nature of their romantic relationship has recently been the subject of controversy -- calling the pair a "sexual tag team."
"Mick himself said, at one point, 'everyone knows that everyone is basically bisexual,'" Andersen explained.
The "Mick" author even recounts a story of Jagger finally seeking help from a sex therapist, before ultimately seducing her.
But fellow rocker Gene Simmons may have Jagger beat in the bedding department -- the KISS bassist says he has slept with roughly 4,897 women. Now that's "Satisfaction."
In movie news, the part of 'Simon' in 'Mortal Instruments has been cast. What do you think? Was he who you expected? Honestly none of the people cast so far has been who I've expected but of course I'll end up seeing it anyway.
'Mortal Instruments' Casts Robert Sheehan As Simon
The search for Clary Fray's bass-playing BFF is over! Irish actor Robert Sheehan will join Lily Collins and Jamie Campbell Bower in the big-screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare's best-selling "Mortal Instruments" series, which begins filming next month.
Author Cassie broke the news on her Tumblr today. "He’s totally cute and adorable and HILARIOUS, and his chemistry with Lily and Jamie is off the charts," she wrote. "I’ve wanted him for Simon for ages so I am pretty much totally and entirely happy."
Fans of the British TV series "Misfits" will recognize Robert as smart aleck Nathan Young. The actor has numerous other TV credits to his name, as well as the Nic Cage flick "Season of the Witch."
Simon is an integral character in the "Mortal Instruments" universe. Known for his signature message Ts and his rock band's ever-changing moniker, Simon is heroine Clary's oldest friend, who's been nursing an unrequited crush on her for basically forever. He provides a good deal of levity but can kick a bit of butt when necessary. And this chap Robert looks a lot like how we pictured the oft-underdog, so we're excited to see him bring Simon to life.
Robert joins cast actors Jemima West as Isabelle and Kevin Durand and Robert Maillet as Valentine's henchman.
And now, Lily Collins (cast as Clary) and Jamie Gaybell Bower (cast as Jace) are holding hands, not one month after Jamie broke off his one year engagement to the girl who played Ginny Weasley. Jerk. I don't know, I can't see him as Jace. Instead of seeing him as "jerk who can turn into nice guy", I see him as "jerk who stays jerk".
'Mortal Instruments' Co-Stars Jamie Campbell Bower, Lily Collins Spotted Holding Hands.
Every day a multitude of stars wander through the halls of MTV News to talk about their latest projects and goof around with staff members. But sometimes we catch stars elsewhere, and that's why we put together Spotted!, a daily compendium of stars in the wild.
Excuse us while we put on our busybody bottoms for a minute, but have you seen the latest snaps of "Mortal Instruments" leads Jamie Campbell Bower and Lily Collins? The co-stars are in Toronto prepping to film the big-screen adaptation of Cassandra Clare's best-selling novel, and, well, here they are holding hands. And it pretty clearly has nothing to do with the movie (in which they play love interests Clary Fray and Jace Wayland).
Cassie told us last year that the two had "incredible chemistry that sort of blazed off the screen" during their film test, so perhaps a big of this on-screen heat has seared into their personal lives? I mean, Jamie is now a single man after parting ways with fiancee Bonnie Wright, and this wouldn't be the first workplace romance for Lily, who dated "Abduction" co-star Taylor Lautner. Of course, this could just be a friendly sign of affection, but we don't make it a habit of holding our best bro's hand while running errands. Just sayin'.
Either way, we're just happy to see the pair in the throes of pre-production on the long-gestating project. Thankfully, there have been a number of newsy nuggets to keep us occupied until filming begins next month, including the debut of the movie's title treatment and casting of Valentine's henchmen.
In Fashion news, there is a new wedge shoe where the wedge doubles as a compartment for filling lipstick, credit cards, keys and even tampons. Seems like a pretty good idea, but what if you're dancing and the back of your shoe opens accidentally, spilling tampons all over the floor? See these are the things I think of when I consider a product like this. What happens when it malfunctions?! Cause at some point it will. However, perhaps they should not be worn at raves and other extreme dancing situations. Maybe they should put that on the warning label.
Double Agent Shoes Are Built with Secret
The folks at Bellona Fashions have designed Double Agent Shoes, a line of fancy footwear built with secret compartments in each of the heels. Ladies can leave their purse at home and carry everything they need in these trap-doored shoes like “money, credit cards, ID, keys, makeup–and even personal care items, like tampons.” These handmade shoes come in a variety of styles, in names like The Cleopatra, The Muse, The Isis and more. All styles are available to purchase at their online store.
And now, for today's (demonstration) FAIL... Uh, no thanks. This isn't Jack@ss the movie. I don't want to ask the associate for a demonstration.

And that's all the time I have for today. What would you store in your secret agent wedge shoes? And until tomorrow, here's something you should know...
Jackie Chan hates the Rush Hour Movies!
In his blog, Chan had this to say about the Rush Hour films, “When we finished filming, I felt very disappointed because it was a movie I didn’t appreciate and I did not like the action scenes involved. I felt the style of action was too Americanized and I didn’t understand the American humor.”
He said he had made the sequel, because he was offered an “irresistible” amount of money for it and the third one he did for the fans of the series. It is pretty rare to hear actors admit they don’t enjoy their projects, especially when they are doing all their own fight scenes and stunts like Chan does.
Chris Tucker must have caught wind of the money Chan was making from the films, because in the third film, Tucker asked to be paid a crazy amount of money. What do you think of the Rush Hour films?
