Hey…in case you care…Billy Bob Thornton is explaining that whole thing where he and then-wife Angelina Jolie, wore vials of each other’s blood in necklaces. He says it was her idea. He said, "Angie came home one day with a kit she bought which is a... You know those lockets you buy that are clear and you put a picture of your granny in it or something like that and wear it around your neck? That was it. She thought it would be interesting and romantic if we took a little razor blade and sliced our fingers, smeared a little blood on these lockets and you wear it around your neck just like you wear your son or daughter's baby hair in one," Thorton explained. He blamed the tabloids for twisting around the facts.
Also from the If You Care file: Baby North is going to work for what she wants. Kim Kardashian talked to ES Magazine and said, "I was saying that earlier to my friends, ‘I wonder what [North's] first job is gonna be.' And they were like, ‘What? She's gonna have a job?' and I was like, ‘Are you kidding me? Of course she is'. She will have to work for what she wants." "Maybe she'll be a designer. Who knows? It's too early to tell."
Still from the If You Care file: Nick Cannon has signed on for a sequel to his 2002 marching band-themed movie, “Drumline.” His character, Devon Miles, will now be a mentor for the new class.

FYI…just know that every week, Britney Spears is putting $1 million in the bank. She got a raise from $310,000 a show to $475,000 a show for her Las Vegas residency. That puts her just a thousand bucks a concert behind Celine Dion. Planet Hollywood was blown away by ticket sales, which they said broke Vegas records. So Britney’s manager went back to the bargaining table 50 shows into the original deal. In total, including her side projects, sources say Spears is getting around $1 million deposited in her account weekly.
Justin Timberlake is winding down his 20/20 Experience world tour, announcing that the final two shows will take place on Jan. 1 and Jan. 2 at Las Vegas' MGM Grand Garden Arena and be filmed by Jonathan Demme.

News from earlier in the week....
Kesha said under oath in 2011 that she had not had sexy time with Dr. Luke, the producer she now accuses of repeated sexual assault and abuse. Last week, Kesha and Dr. Luke sued each other. She alleges that he drugged and took advantage of her amid systemic, years-long abuse as the two collaborated professionally. He says she's making it all up in a bid to get out of her contract. Now a judge has unsealed an unrelated 2011 deposition in which Kesha is asked whether Dr. Luke ever gave her a "roofie," and whether the two ever had an "intimate relationship." Kesha says no to both questions. On Tuesday, Dr. Luke's legal team asked the judge to allow the deposition to be used in the current lawsuits, despite the protests of Kesha's attorney. He says Kesha lied in the 2011 deposition because "Luke walked Kesha down the beach and threatened to destroy Kesha's life and the lives of her family if she didn't cover up his sexual assaults."
Justin Timberlake and Jessica Biel have received an apology and retraction from the publishers of Heat magazine. Earlier this month, they said that they were suing after an article was published under the headlines "Justin Timberlake gets flirty with another woman", "It is not his wife!" and "The flirty photos that rocked Justin and Jessica's marriage". Yesterday, a statement given before the High Court in Dublin read in part: "The Defendant accepts that the article was false and withdraws any inferences that questioned the state of Justin and Jessica's marriage. The Defendant regrets any embarrassment caused to the couple and unreservedly apologizes to them." Meanwhile, a statement released from the couple said they were satisfied with the apology, "...but will not hesitate to take similar legal action if false allegations regarding the state of their marriage are repeated."

Jennifer Lopez is in the final talks for a deal to perform in Las Vegas ... and according TMZ -- she'll rake inmore per show than Britney Spears. Jennifer is being offered $350,000 per show at The Axis, Planet Hollywood, the same place Britney is performing. Britney is making $310K a show. But Britney will ultimately score more than J.Lo because her contract provides she'll do 96 shows over 2 years. J.Lo will do 72 shows, 3 times a week for 24 weeks over a 1 or 2 year period -- the contract leaves that open. Britney is guaranteed $29,760,000 for the 2-year run. J.Lo will be guaranteed $26,383,326.
Wanna see Jamie Foxx sweat? Tina Knowles put him in a serious bind by putting her ass dangerously close to his crotch while dancing. Mama Knowles jumped on stage during Jamie's performance at the Angel Ball in NYC and decided to back, back, back it up.
And that's when Jamie starts sweating. His options:
A: Totally go for it and give Beyonce's mom the ride dance of her life
B: Politely back away because that's Jay Z's mother-in-law.
He chose B.
To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Back to the Future next year, Universal Pictures will re-release the 1985 time-travel classic with live orchestration. The film will be screened in various venues around the world without the score, so that a live orchestra could perform Alan Silvestri's Academy Award–nominated music. The orchestra will also perform 15 minutes of new music that the composer wrote specifically for the engagements. The first performance of Back to the Future with live orchestration will take place in May 2015 in Lucerne, Switzerland. No other screening dates or details have yet been announced. Speaking of that…did you hear about the Kickstarter hover board? It’s kind of like the one Marty McFly rode in the movie…sort of. And cost $10,000. If you pitch in $100, you can ride a prototype for 5 minutes. Pitch in $1,000 and get a privately coached one-hour ride. Or…give them $10,000 and get one to keep in May 21, 2015.
Renee Zellweger looks like a completely different person with her super line-free forehead, altered brow and puffy face, although she has never admitted to getting surgery. She was photographed on the red carpet in Los Angeles on Monday night. One cosmetic surgeon who has never treated Renee said he believes she may have had an upper eye lift because the distance between the brow and her eye is much smaller than before. She might have also had work done on her cheeks and lips. So what does she think of the Internet noticing her new look? In a statement to PEOPLE, she says "I'm glad folks think I look different! I'm living a different, happy, more fulfilling life, and I'm thrilled that perhaps it shows." More HERE.

BBTW… James Blunt is apologizing for his 2005 mega-hit "You're Beautiful". He says it’s annoying. "[It] was force-fed down people's throats, and it became annoying, and then people start to associate the artist with the same word. I have a couple of over-emotional miserable songs that I'm known for, but I think it's turned that corner now."

Bryan Cranston has responded to the Florida woman trying to get Breaking Bad action figures removed from Toys "R" Us shelves, writing on Twitter that he's "so mad, I'm burning my Florida Mom action figure in protest."

The petition has nearly 3,000 signatures. Toys "R" Us released a statement saying that the figures "are carried in very limited quantities and the product packaging clearly notes that the items are intended for ages 15 and up."

A 23-year-old Miley Cyrus superfan named Anthony Skinner snuck backstage after her show Friday in Sydney while disguised as a cleaner. Of course, you’ve got to Instagram a selfie with the neon yellow safety vest he wore to get past security. Skinner says he was in the arena's parking lot when he noticed a cleaner's storeroom door was open. "My mindset was 'See how far you can take this'," he said. "It wasn't planned at all. Everything just fell into place so perfectly." Skinner put his belongings into "a wheelie bin," which he then pushed past a security team he claims "didn't even look at me." The good thing is he actually worked to clean the venue for about 40 minutes. Finally, a security guard told him to stand in a doorway as they "surrounded" Cyrus so she could leave the venue safely. "My whole brain just emptied. I saw her and froze. All I could get out was 'Hey'. She looked at me, smiled and just kept walking."
Well…this is awkward. David Arquette and fiancée Christina McLarty happened to have a fight in the middle of a busy street and it was caught on video. At one point, Christina can be seen running down Santa Monica Boulevard in her evening dress, pleading with Arquette, "Stop David, David, David stop. Come here, please!" Another segment shows David storming off, saying, he's "done, just like the last guy." They welcomed a son in April and got engaged in July.

Shia LaBeouf is explaining all of his odd behavior of late…it was method acting. In a recent interview, the actor claimed that he was simply role-playing when he argued with Alec Baldwinon the set of “Orphans”-- and also when he smacked actor Alan Cumming’s butt at a performance of “Cabaret.” LaBeouf said, “Alec and I butted heads hard. I was sleeping in the park . . . At the time, I was out of my mind.” He added, “My whole goal was to intimidate the f–k out of Baldwin. That was the role. And it wasn’t going to be fake. I wanted him to be scared… So I went about doing that for three weeks of rehearsal.” He now says about his arrest in June, “I was reading about performance art of the ’60s and ’70s and so I thought… we’re all involved here. It’s not just your stage. We’re all in here and we’re all part of this. I was wrong.” More HERE.

Toys "R" Us is under fire for selling "Breaking Bad" that come complete with a fake gun, fake cash, and a backpack filled with fake crystal meth. The dolls are dressed in hazmat suits, and are paired with gas masks like the character wore on the show. Not surprisingly, the products are raising questions, and one concerned mom has even started a petition to get them yanked from the store's shelves. But the company's vice president for communications said the product packaging (as well as the website) "clearly notes that the items are intended for ages 15 and up," and "are located in the adult action figure area of our stores." That's not, however, what a local NBC affiliate found at two New York locations, where the figures were near other offerings such as Super Mario Bros. figures.
Taylor Swift fired back at those who blast her for writing songs about her exes. Taylor said, "I think frankly that’s a very sexist angle to take. No one says that about Ed Sheeran. No one says it about Bruno Mars. They’re all writing songs about their exes, their current girlfriends, their love-life, and no one raises a red flag there." She also said, "The most important thing to me is maintaining artist integrity which means as a songwriter I still continue to write about my life. I could very well water it down... (but) people are going to see the depth from which you approached the song, the fact that you put real emotions into it, and that's valuable, and that's good and that's real."
Stephen Collins will reportedly not be prosecuted for child molestation or exposing himself to children, despite confessing on multiple incidents, because the statute of limitations prevents prosecutors from pursuing the cases. During a secretly recorded therapy session, Collins admitted to his estranged wife Faye Grant that he had inappropriate contact with young girls, leading law enforcement officials to open investigations. But because the three known cases occurred decades ago, and no evidence of more recent crimes has surfaced, sources say prosecutors will not pursue charges against Collins. Grant claims Collins also molested a child more recently, during his "7th Heaven" run, but no victim has come forward to corroborate the allegation at this point.
Ray Rice could possibly be reinstated to the NFL within the next four weeks. Rice is still under an indefinite suspension and was cut from the Ravens last month after the video of him knocking his then-fiancee out , is awaiting an appeal hearing date, with a final decision to come soon after. The entire case could be resolved by mid-November, which may allow Rice to sign with another NFL team this season.

Tony Mendez admits he grabbed a writer for the show, Bill Scheft, by the shirt on Oct. 9th, which resulted in his dismissal.

Steve Carrell's family comedy, Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day, stuck around in fourth with $12 million.
News from last week....
We now officially know what is to blame in Joan Rivers’ death. She was sedated with propofol before she died of low blood oxygen during a procedure to treat voice changes and acid reflux, according to the New York City medical examiner. Rivers lacked sufficient oxygen to her brain for a prolonged period of time, which caused brain damage, the medical examiner said. Her heart had stopped after she was sedated with propofol and undergoing procedures to examine her condition. The most important finding though is that no medical error was found, which meant her death is an accepted possibility of the procedure she was undergoing.
Halle Berry is saying her ex-baby daddy is living off her $16,000 a month child support payments and she wants that to stop.

She’s asking the payments to be reduced to $3,000 a month. More HERE.

Doctors also got an LPS hold on her just over a year ago but it expired last month.

Remember when U2 gave us their new album, Songs of Innocence, for free via iTunes? Bono officially apologized for that. In a Q&A posted to Facebook, a fan asked Bono, point-blank: “Can you please never release an album on iTunes that automatically downloads to people’s playlists ever again? It’s really rude.” Bono responded, “Oops. I’m sorry about that. I had this beautiful idea — might have gotten carried away with ourselves. Artists are prone to that kind of thing. A drop of megalomania, a touch of generosity, a dash of self-promotion, and deep fear that these songs that we poured our life into over the last few years might not be heard. There’s a lot of noise out there. I guess, we got a little noisy ourselves to get through it.”

Everyone was dancing until past 3 a.m.” His wife, Paula Patton, moved her new boyfriend Zak Waters into her Calabasas house.

The singer's message lit up the Internet, receiving more than 16,000 retweets. As if realizing that his opinion could land him in controversy, Brown hastily tweeted a few minutes later, "Let me shut my black a-- up!"
Demi Lovato is engaged — to an adorable 5-year-old boy named Grant. Lovato is the little boy's favorite singer, and he apparently decided to try taking things to the next level at Saturday's concert in Moline, Illinois.

But when he said, "Demi, will you marry me?" Lovato and everyone else in the iWireless Center seemed to melt. They then sealed the deal with a kiss on the cheek. And Lovato, before sending Grant back to his family, joked, "I can't wait to see you at the wedding."
