New Trailer Released For The Lorax!

Filed under: Film FlickersZac EfronPerezTVBookz

Really seems like they're trying to attract the indie/hipster crowd by using Polyphonic Spree and Vampire Weekend songs in these trailers, huh?

Check out the newly released trailer (above) for The Lorax, which is based on the classic Dr. Seuss story/cautionary tale, and features the swoontastic vocal talent of Zac Efron!!!!!!

There's no denying that this looks like a cute movie. PLUS, it has a good message!

Those of U who read the children's book already know that The Lorax speaks for the trees, which we think is wonderful!

Will U check out The Lorax when it hits theaters this March?

Filed under: Music MinuteCheryl Cole

Oh, hellz to the YES!

Check out this HIGHlariously awesome cover of Cheryl Cole's smash Fight For This Love by hipster band Vampire Weekend (above)!

Frontman Ezra Koenig explains:

“One day we were in the car driving to the airport and we heard a song that reminded us of K-Ci & JoJo’s ‘All My Life’, which is a very important song for people our age. We were like, ‘This song is awesome.’ Then we saw her on tabloids. Who knew she was famous?”

Well, pretty much everyone in the UK, bb!

And don't worry - we have a feeling we're going to be hearing a lot more of our beloved Chezza in the USA VERY soon!

More Vampire Weekend Album Cover Dramz!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

vampire weekend album drama continues

Back in July, we reported that Vampire Weekend was being sued by the model on the cover of their Contra album.

Now, the band is looking to get satisfaction themselves, and they're suing the photographer, Tod Brody, for alleging that he had the rights to former model Ann Kirsten Kennis' photo, which they used on the cover.

A judge has given the band permission to pursue legal action against Brody, but the photographer hasn't responded to any contact attempts thus far.

In an effort to show him how serious they are, both Vampire Weekend AND Kennis' lawyer have requested permission to "pass a summons via email or post rather than serve him papers in person."

On Nov 18, they were granted permission to do so, and Brody's summons was issued on Nov 24.

Looks like Brody will be considered "served" within 10 days of the issue date, and he'll be forced to respond to the summons by early 2011, otherwise he's liable for a default judgment.

Guess we'll hear more soon, as that deadline is fast approaching!

Do U think the photographer deserves harsh punishment for causing so much drama? Or do U think it's the band's fault?

Vampire Weekend Sued Over Their Album Cover!

Filed under: Music MinuteLegal Matters

Well, shiz! These guys are NOT going to be used to dealing with a mess like this!

Hipster band Vampire Weekend is being sued for $2 million by the model on the cover of their latest album, Contra, who claims that she never signed a release on the photo!

The woman is named Kirsten Kennis, and she apparently took the pic back in 1983!

The band bought the photo from the photographer, Tod Brody, but Kennis alleges that her signature on the photographic release was forged and she didn't even know her image was being used until Vampire Weekend started promoting the album!

Poor guys! We bet that they just wanted to be original and use some old, unknown photo, and had no idea they were doing anything wrong!

Sucks!

Thoughts??
