Topless protesters rush stage at 'Germany's Next Top Model' with Heidi Klum

This would never happen on The CW.

Germany’s version of Next Top Model got an unexpected twist during the finale when protesters from FEMEN, an organization that fights for women’s equality, stormed the stage topless with the words “Heidi Horror Picture Show” written on their bodies. The moment prompted Heidi Klum, who serves as host of the program, to quip,”I have just been seeing boobies in front of me. Too bad it happened at this special moment!”

On their NSFW Facebook page, FEMEN explained their actions: “The program format is pimp-show where world-famous supermodel Heidi Klum plays the role of ‘mom’ and forms a bevy of underage girls to fashion-fools….FEMEN regards the fashion industry as an element of pimp business and has consistently opposed the commercialization of the female body. …Fooled by fashion propoganda, failed by fashion models, women regularly join the ranks of sex workers, and psychiatric patients. Stop the fashion business! Stop Prostitution! The true mission of a woman is a revolution!”

Amanda Bynes's very bad year: A timeline

In retrospect, we should have known something was up with Amanda Bynes back in the summer of 2010, when she retired from acting, then un-retired from acting, then deleted her original Twitter feed altogether. Since then, The Amanda Show‘s former lead has been behaving more and more erratically — getting in multiple car accidents, dramatically altering her appearance, and declaring on her latest Twitter account that she wants the rapper Drake to “murder [her] vagina.”

And then came May 23, when Bynes was arrested for criminal possession of marijuana, tampering with evidence, and reckless endangerment. (She allegedly threw a bong out of a window in her New York City apartment.) The incident has catalyzed an even odder spate of behavior for the ex-Nickelodeon star, including wearing a ratty platinum wig to court and claiming that she’s going to sue the NYPD for both sexual harassment and making a false arrest.

How did she get here? Though the real story probably begins when a 7-year-old Bynes appeared in her first commercial (for Buncha Crunch) in 1994, let’s start instead a little more than a year ago, when Bynes had her first brush with the law.

Lucille Bluth vs. the Disney Princesses

So I went a little nuts with Vine!

Boozy-witchy Bluth matriarch Lucille has generously taken time out of her day-drinking to snap some sense into the damsels of Disney. They could all stand to lose some weight, by the way. You want your belt to buckle, not your chair. (Click the microphones on and off to hear the audio.) READ FULL STORY

'Arrested Development': Five favorite 'sweet' Bluth family moments

Family love Michael and we all love the Bluths. In the lead-up to the fourth season premiere of Arrested Development on Netflix this Sunday, I thought back on the sweetest, most tender moments from the show’s whole crew. Of course, since this is Arrested – even their most heartwarming scenes have some kind of twisted take.

Check out a few moments that had viewers cringing and “aww-ing” all at once below (like George Michael and Maeby’s entire relationship!), and then add your own picks in the comments.

1.) When you think of karaoke with your niece (to prove a point to your son), it’s best to stay away from any tunes that involve lyrics like, “My motto’s always been when it’s right it’s right.” Unfortunately, the innocent-seeming title of “Afternoon Delight” tricks Michael and Maeby into crooning the surprisingly sexy tune at each other. It’s probably best that they avoided each other for the rest of the party. READ FULL STORY

'Twilight' dominates Teen Choice Awards nominations

The sun has set (or risen?) on Summit Entertainment’s venerable vampire series — but even though it, like Robsten, is officially kaput, Twilight still holds a hypnotic power over people of a certain age. (That age is “young.”)

The last installment of the blood-sucking saga dominates the “first wave” of nominees at this year’s Teen Choice Awards, which single out the movies, TV series, music, fashion, comedians, athletes, and performers that resonate most with today’s 13- through 19-year-olds. The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2 snagged seven nods, nine if you include star Taylor Lautner’s individual nominations for Choice Male Hottie and Choice Smile.

But even if you’re over the Cullens, there must be something you like on this list — the nominees range from Argo to Zooey Deschanel, and they cover everything from mainstream action movies to “Choice Electronic Dance Music Artist.” A full list of first-wave nominees is below; starting now, fans of an appropriate age can vote once per category each day at the TCA’s website. Additional nominees, as well as performers, presenters, and a host will be announced soon. The two-hour awards ceremony will air live Sunday, Aug. 11 at 8 p.m. ET on Fox.

Five 'Arrested Development' fanfiction -- aka Bluthcest -- stories you didn't know existed

Steamy fanfiction on the Internet is certainly nothing new. (I’m looking at you, Mulder/Scully X-Files fans!) So I’ve come to expect that there are literally thousands of Vampire Diaries or Twilight stories floating around that would make me blush. But a smart, cult comedy aimed at adults that went off the air years ago and — save for some kissing cousins — had very little romance? Color me blue surprised.

There are so many ways to express your Arrested Development love: A Gif, a Tumblr, a Tweet. But apparently some wordsmiths decided the best way was to coin the term “Bluthcest,” which is exactly what you think it is. Some of it is clearly tongue-in-cheek; some of it, not so much. This is the story of a wealthy family, with characters that no one could get enough of, stuck in plots that would never air on Fox, and the one writer who had no choice but to dive in.

'Glee' star Jenna Ushkowitz takes EW's Pop Culture Personality Test -- VIDEO

ew-personality-test-jenna-ushkowitz.jpg

Glee‘s fourth season may have just wrapped, but Jenna Ushkowitz, who plays Tina on the show, isn’t slowing down. She just released a book, Choosing Glee: 10 Rules to Finding Inspiration, Happiness, and the Real You, which is part scrapbook memoir and part teen advice book with anecdotes and tips about being yourself, achieving your goals and having confidence in your abilities. “It’s always been on my bucket list to write a book,” Ushkowitz said. “It sort of organically happened. I wrote this treatment in like 24 hours. The main 10 rules kept popping up over and over again, so that’s where we found the streamline for it.”

Gleeks will be excited to learn that the book has tips from the whole McKinley High crew, and even includes a letter from Ushkowitz to Tina. “I think some of the things I [hope for her are] to take risks and to not take everything so seriously,” Ushkowitz explains about her dreams for her character. “Make sure you tell people how you feel and to laugh everyday!”

Check out Ushkowitz laughing herself when she takes EW’s Pop Culture Personality Test — and fills us in on the movie she has to watch every time it’s on cable and her most prized pop culture possession — below: READ FULL STORY

J.J. Abrams talks 'Star Trek' and 'Star Wars' with Jon Stewart -- VIDEO

J.J. Abrams stopped by The Daily Show last night to discuss Star Trek Into Darkness, and he reminded devoted Trekkies that he was never really one of them: He didn’t like Star Trek as a kid. “It always felt too philosophical,” he explained.

Blasphemy! Abrams went on to say that some of the writers of the movie were huge fans, while his producing partner had never seen it — if everyone, with their different perspectives, was happy, the movie worked. “The goal was to make a movie for moviegoers, not just Star Trek fans,” he explained.

After the two discussed the pros and cons of both Star Trek (don’t worry, it grew on him!) and Star Wars, Stewart naturally delved into the fact that Abrams is now running everything. “I’m not even going to go to the conventions anymore, I’m just going to sit on your lap,” Stewart joked.  Abrams said it was too early to give away any intel about Star Wars, but that didn’t stop Stewart from making a case about why he should be allowed to be a Jedi.

Watch the interview and the extended online clip — where Abrams gives Stewart some directing advice — below: READ FULL STORY

Billie Joe Armstrong calls PSY 'the herpes of music' and PSY responds -- VIDEO

Normally, it’s a good thing when someone says your music is contagious. But Green Day’s Billie Joe Armstrong wasn’t being kind to Korean YouTube sensation PSY with a recent post on his personal Instragram. The rocker posted a photo of PSY, along with the caption, “This dude is the herpes of music. Once you think it’s gone, it comes back. #herpes #flareup #pleasegoaway.” (EW reached out to reps for both Armstrong and PSY, who didn’t return a request for comment.)

That’s a pretty cutting remark, but PSY’s (Gangnam) style is just to let it roll off his back. He told Fuse — after first trying to clarify what exactly herpes is — “I kinda like it, it’s cool…He said I’m like the herpes… that keeps coming back. I think it’s really cool. Thank you.”
