While there might not be a lot of buzz around Jennifer Aniston and the products she endorses, people seem to still REALLY love her! According to the Brand Passion Index, Jennifer ranked the highest in consumer love out of the 7 celebrities that were monitored. The others included: Beyonce, Brad Pitt, Jennifer Hudson, Ashton Kutcher, Jessica Simpson, and William Shatner! Seriously, Jennifer only generated around 2% of the buzz, but it was mostly positive! Her ex-hubby? Well… the news isn't so hot for him! Brad got a lot of ridicule for his short-lived stint as Chanel No. 5’s celebrity, and had the second highest share of buzz with 32% of the overall chatter. The bad part is that he had the second lowest Net Sentiment score (-7) and a Passion Intensity of 44. But who was the most disliked celebrity endorser?? We're shocked! It was JENNIFER HUDSON! She generated the lowest Net Sentiment score (-12) as well as the lowest Passion Intensity score (16) — people just feel smothered by how many Weight Watchers commercials there are, and are tired of it! Ouch! Oh, and if you're wondering, Beyonce had the highest buzz! She just had middle-of-the-road love, though! Sorry, JHud!

Reuters/Reuters - Anthony Kiedis of the Red Hot Chili Peppers performs during the Coachella Music Festival in Indio, California April 14, 2013. REUTERS/Mario Anzuoni By Piya Sinha-Roy INDIO, California (Reuters) - California rockers Red Hot Chili Peppers closed out the first weekend of the Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on Sunday, amid high winds that swept across the desert and prompted attendees to don extra layers. The Chili Peppers, formed by Anthony Kiedis, Chad Smith, Flea and Josh Klinghoffer in 1983 in Los Angeles, showcased a catalogue of songs from their last four studio albums. The band sang their classic hits, dark love letters to their home state of California, including "Dani California," "Californication," "Parallel Universe" and "Under The Bridge," as fans sang along in a finale to Sunday's events. The Chili Peppers eschewed the tradition of headliners featuring a special guest, instead keeping their set all about their own music, with the exception of a cover of Stevie Wonder's "Higher Ground." Prior to the Chili Peppers, Wu-Tang Clan drew a large crowd as all the living members of the hip hop collective came together to perform a set filled with their hit tracks, including "Bring da Ruckus" and "Clan in da Front." The Staten Island collective, which has included rappers RZA, Method Man, Ghostface Killah, and Ol' Dirty Bastard who died in 2004, will celebrate its 20th anniversary this year with a new album, "A Better Tomorrow," released in July. The group will also perform 10 dates across North America and Europe at music festivals this summer, kicking off with Sunday's Coachella performance. As winds of around 35 miles per hour (56 km/h) swept across the festival in the California desert town of [...]

Randy O. Williams, Special for USA TODAY Sports9:01 p.m. EDT April 11, 2013 (Photo: Warner Bros. Pictures) Story Highlights '42,' the biopic about Jackie Robinson, opens Friday Filmmakers wanted an air of authenticity to baseball scenes Chad Boseman, who portrays Robinson, went through several months of baseball training Baseball and Hollywood's longstanding partnership has produced a gaggle of movies that have hit and missed when it comes to authenticity. Chronicling Jackie Robinson's struggle to integrate the major leagues provided a unique and important challenge. For director Brian Helgeland and producer Thomas Tull, scouting locations, assembling the cast and training them to be game-ready - in the truest sense of the term - took on a greater import for 42, the biopic about Robinson that opens Friday. "One of my biggest pet peeves is when it is very obvious to the audience that the actors portraying an athlete have never played the sport in their life. And it just takes you out of the moment, " says Tull, also the executive producer of We Are Marshall and a one-time associate scout for the Atlanta Braves. With that in mind, Tull tabbed Chad Boseman - who previously portrayed running back Floyd Little in The Express - for the lead role. He calls Boseman "a great natural athlete," but to be sure, Boseman was assigned two coaches and trainers to get him game-ready. A FIRST FOR FORD: Harrison Ford takes on a sports movie As they got closer to shooting, all of the men portraying players were immersed in weeks of physical conditioning and practice at a training camp run by stunt coordinator Allan Graf, who was responsible for scouting players for 42. The list of secondary roles [...]
SAN DIEGO (AP) — Dodgers slugger Matt Kemp confronted San Diego's Carlos Quentin as they were leaving Petco Park after the teams had a bench-clearing brawl that left Los Angeles pitcher Zack Greinke with a broken collarbone.

The hacking group Anonymous has threatened to make public the identities of four boys accused of gang-raping a Canadian teenager who later killed herself after images of the attack went viral. A Facebook page has been dedicated to the memory of Rehtaeh By Paul Wright 3:06PM BST 11 Apr 2013 The group, notorious for its unique brand of justice, said it was responding to calls from those who felt incensed that police had failed to arrest or convict any of the four accused of raping Rehtaeh Parsons. Both the police and Canada's justice minister has condemned the group after its YouTube threat. Rehtaeh, who was 15 years old at the time of the alleged attack in 2011, suffered almost two years of depression and bullying after pictures purporting to be of the incident were spread around her school, her family has said. She hanged herself in the bathroom of her home in Nova Scotia on Thursday and died in hospital Sunday evening. No one was ever charged for the attack, with police saying the investigation was scuppered by "insufficient evidence".
