James Franco Aiming to Team Up With Allah-Las
James Franco has asked Los Angeles psych-rockers The Allah-Las to do the music for the film The Long Home.

A spokesman for the Allah-Las declined to comment.
Hold It, Now Hit It: Ad-Rock At Bat
Adam “Ad-Rock” Horovitz rhymed that he was “clutch like Piazza” on the Beastie Boys’ 2004 cut “3 the Hard Way,” but that wasn’t quite the case at James J. Walker Park in Manhattan’s West Village, where Overheard spotted the hip-hop legend playing softball on June 10 with a group of friends. At bat with runners on first and third in the game’s penultimate half-inning, Horovitz, wearing a Mets hat, jokingly pointed to the outfield fence a la Babe Ruth -- and then promptly popped out. He had better luck on the mound in the next frame, pitching his team to the win with a scoreless inning.
Ke$ha Chills With Calvin Klein
“Tik Tok” singer Ke$ha literally glowed at the West Hollywood gay bar The Abbey following her L.A. Pride performance on June 12. The artist entered the establishment through a back entrance wearing glow-in-the-dark glitter in her hair, which was styled in a pom-pom look. She was taken to Abbey owner David Cooley’s table, where she said hello to fashion designer Calvin Klein. The crowd, which included R&B singer-songwriter Tinashe, cheered for Kesha when the DJ played her tracks “Die Young” and “Blow.”
