Phu Quoc: Vietnam's attempt to become king of Asia's beaches

If you ever wondered what Thailand was like in the late 1980s, check out Phu Quoc Island off the southwest coast of Vietnam, the new hop on the Gulf of Siam?s circuit that embraces Koh Samui, Koh Chang and Koh Kong.

Phu Quoc is fast becoming Vietnam?s hottest new island destination. But it also maintains -- at least for now -- a character unlike anything in Thailand. 

Market traders in conical hats hawk baguettes, ducks, flying lizards and other items rarely seen on the Thai side of the Gulf, while motorcycles ply red dirt roads to pearl farms and old-style fishing ports.

Villagers, who water the roads and erect thatch fences to protect their homes from dust, gather up seaweed and haul in squid nets by pedaling homemade winches.

Johnny Depp & Penelope Cruz: ?Pirates? Goes to Cannes!

As they continue along with their European press tour, Johnny Depp and Penelope Cruz were once again side-by-side for the "Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides" photocall during the 64th Cannes Film Festival in Cannes, France on Saturday (May 14).

The fabulous co-stars both looked splendid as they took to the Palais des Festivals venue while joining up with co-stars Geoffrey Rush, Sam Caflin, Ian McShane and Astrid Berges-Frisbey.

Set to hit theaters on May 20th, the film's director, Rob Marshall, recently spoke to Parade magazine about how he dealt with the news of Penelope's pregnancy - which became known just a week prior to shooting the much-awaited picture.

Marshall explained, ?We were like, uhhhhh. I said, ?Are you going to be okay sword fighting with a baby in your stomach?? But she was up for it. She said she?d understand if we had to replace her, but she didn?t want to be replaced. It took more time, ultimately, but she was worth it."

Rob also addressed questions as to whether this will be the last of Captain Jack Sparrow, telling, ?It?s like the James Bond series. I think there are probably lots of stories still to tell.?

'Bridesmaids' Stars Say Jon Hamm 'Embraced' Awkward Sex Scenes

'He's usually the guy you call for awkward sex scenes,' Maya Rudolph jokes to MTV News.
By Kara Warner

From the outside looking in, the new movie "Bridesmaids" has a lot going for it: An all-star cast of very funny women, anchored by "SNL" star Kristen Wiig and her onetime castmate Maya Rudolph, the universal and consistently humorous experience of being in weddings ... and Jon Hamm.

How does Hamm, known to most as "Mad Men" star Don Draper, fit into this mix of lovely ladies? He plays a sleazy "friend with benefits" to Wiig's character. Those "benefits," by the way, are hilariously awkward sex scenes that open the movie.

When MTV News caught up with the "Bridesmaids" cast, plus producer Judd Apatow and director Paul Feig, we asked them to comment on the use of handsome Jon Hamm for not-so-sexy sex.

"He's usually the guy you call for awkward sex scenes," Rudolph quipped.

"Judd met with him and told him about it; I talked to him and sent him the script," Wiig explained of getting Hamm aboard. "We were like, 'We're not quite sure what your character is going to be yet, it's not fully fleshed out yet,' and he was such a trouper and signed on. And then we were like, 'OK, now we're doing a sex scene!' " Wiig said with a giggle.

"I don't think I've ever seen somebody play such a slimy jerk but be like, 'Hey! It's cool!' " scene-stealer Melissa McCarthy said of Hamm's method of making a jerk impossible to hate. "It's the weirdest energy. It's so good and weird."

"All we know is that we want his sex to be as bad as ours," Apatow joked.

"We're trying to bring him down to our level, the handsomest man in the world," Feig added. "I'd worked with Jon before on 'Mad Men,' Kristen worked with him on 'SNL,' Judd knows him, we all know he's one of the funniest guys in the world, [and] he embraced this with such a gusto," he said. "The stuff we had him doing, we should be arrested."

"Most of the time we had no film; it was just for the ladies to take runs at him," Apatow continued, tongue-in-cheek.

"Mixing and matching, we like to say," Feig said. "Let's see who he goes best with."

Huge Porn Stash Found in Osama Bin Laden's Compound

Just because he enjoyed murdering innocent people and favored taking the planet back to barbaric, 7th Century fundamentalist rule doesn't mean Osama Bin Laden didn't like some of the finer things about modern Western Civilization.

Dude had a huge porn stash up in his Pakistan hideout!

A stash of pornography was found among the trove of evidence seized from bin Laden's Abbottabad compound by U.S. Navy SEALs, ABC News reports.

Bin Laden Photo

No word if Osama preferred girl-on-girl or anything in particular.

This wasn't just a closet dabbler, either. The existence of the pornography stash has been described as "huge" by U.S. officials who reportedly discovered it.

The material was found in a box in bin Laden's bedroom and included "electronically recorded videos." Hey, beats the heck out of Osama's home movies.

The discovery of the pornographic videos is just the latest in a steady stream of intel gleaned from the SEALs during the mission that killed bin Laden.

From invaluable intelligence on al Qaeda operations to embarrassing personal revelations about the 9/11 mastermind, there's all kinds of crap in there.

Some classified, some just NC-17.

Cannes Kicks Off With 'Boots' Stars Antonio Banderas, Salma Hayek

Stars appear at French festival to promote 'Shrek' spin-off 'Puss in Boots.'
By Christina Garibaldi with reporting by Josh Horowitz

The 64th annual Cannes Film Festival kicked off on Wednesday, and the French town has been completely transformed into every movie lover's dream. Amidst the high-end clothing stores and the decadent food, the streets are now flooded with never-before-seen movie posters, red-carpet events and, of course, the biggest stars in Hollywood.

The action kicks off each year with a star-studded event, and this year that event featured the DreamWorks animated adventure "Puss in Boots." The red-carpet affair took place along a pier at Carlton Beach on the Mediterranean.

The stars of the "Shrek" spin-off, Antonio Banderas and Salma Hayek, were on-hand for the photo call, but before they took center stage, a flurry of flamenco dancers sauntered their way down the red carpet, setting the tone for the high-energy event.

Banderas and Hayek, who wore a fun, flamboyant burnt orange Gucci dress with matching floral sleeves, worked the photographers before making their way to the end of the carpet. The two stars then climbed high above the French Riviera into a giant pair of boots, waving to a crowd of onlookers.

"Big boots make me nervous!" Banderas said of the stunt.

"It was a little strange," Hayek added. "But I'm just happy I don't have vertigo."

Yet Hayek was thrilled to be able to kick off the festival in such a fun and original way. "I do appreciate the imagination and creativity; we are in the business of imagination and creating something new." Hayek said. "It's a fun movie, a movie to entertain people, to make them feel good, to take them to a place they haven't been, so it's a right way to present it."

In "Puss in Boots," Banderas reprises his role from the last three "Shrek" films, while Hayek is a new addition to the cast, playing Puss' love interest, Kitty Softpaws. The film is scheduled to be released later this year.

Keep checking back with all week for everything from the 2011 Cannes Film Festival.

Lonely Island Plan To 'Crush' 'Glee' Star In Album Face-Off

Turtleneck & Chain and Matthew Morrison's self-titled album both dropped today.
By Eric Ditzian

The Lonely Island

TV worlds collide this week in the ultra-competitive universe of album sales, as Andy Samberg and his pals from "Saturday Night Live" take on Matthew Morrison of "Glee." Morrison's self-titled debut, in which he duets with the likes of Elton John and Gwyneth Paltrow, dropped on Tuesday (May 10), the same day Samberg and his Lonely Island comedy troupe released Turtleneck & Chain, which includes tracks with Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg, Michael Bolton and more.

So will "Glee" or "SNL" come out on top by the end of the week? That's what we asked Lonely Island, and their response was hilariously overconfident.

"We're gonna [expletive] that dude!" declared Samberg, a statement that had Akiva Schaffer and Jorma Taccone wondering if Samberg was actually allowed to say something like that.

"You can't say that? All right, well I hope we both do well then," Samberg added.

The two albums, of course, couldn't be more different. Turtleneck & Chain is an over-the-top comedy rap album (the trio's second), with catchy tunes about the moments after having sex, being shy and having small penises. Meanwhile, Morrison's music led one of his "Glee" co-stars to compare the album to something you might hear from Justin Timberlake. So friendly competition aside, Samberg confessed he not only hopes Morrison's album sells well but that he also gives "Glee" the thumbs-up.

"I'll say this on the record: I'm a fan," he said.

"Off the record, we're gonna crush him," Schaffer cracked. "On the record, pretty great show, probably a great album. I wish him the best of luck. Off the record, I hope he burns."

Dial a dabba for lunch

Calorie Counter mumbai

Until a few years ago, the dabba or the Indian lunch box (transported from residences to offices) was made of steel, stacked three, sometimes five, storeys high and contained a traditional Indian meal of rotis, pulses, vegetables and rice.

Since then, the urban office meal has come a long way. It?s been flattened into ready-to-microwave trays, folded into cardboard boxes and calorie-counted into individual diet dishes.

Filling them is a self-consciously health-conscious brigade of chefs, but the method of delivery is still the same -- the network of some 5,000 local dabbawallahs or delivery men, whose logistics have amazed everyone from business school faculty to Prince Charles.

Now, match a packer with your personality.

Brandi Glanville Confirmed For The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills

Move over, Camille Grammer. The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills has just picked up a new, scorned former wife of a TV star in Brandi Glanville.

The rumor has been confirmed, as the model has been spotted shooting scenes for the second season of the Bravo reality show, reports say.

If the past two years are any indication, Brandi will bring drama. Her feud with Eddie Cibrian and his new wife, LeAnn Rimes, has been pretty epic.

A Brandi Glanville Pic

Since Cibrian admitted to cheating on her in 2009 with the also-married LeAnn Rimes (who he married last month), Brandi Glanville hasn't held back.

Brandi does not mince words when it comes to calling out LeAnn and/or the father of her two children, and has even admitted slashing Eddie's tires.

She and Rimes have also battled it out on Twitter, most recently in February when Glanville was upset that Rimes sang at one of their sons' schools.

"It's Mason's week share his family with the class. it isn't ur place," she wrote to Rimes. "Let Eddie read a script. You are not his parent. RESPECT!"

The two women reportedly sought joint counseling to iron out their troubles, and while Brandi said that was a disaster, they have since called a truce.

Well, at least online. Somehow we imagine The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills will explore this family feud in much greater detail going forward ...

Will 'Twilight Saga: Eclipse' Rule The 2011 MTV Movie Awards?

MTV News examines the flick's chances by taking a look at Movie Awards history.
By Jocelyn Vena

"The Twilight Saga: Eclipse" is nominated for eight MTV Movie Awards, eclipsing the competition and leading the (wolf) pack as the most nominated film at this year's show.

With so many chances to take home some Golden Popcorn come Sunday, June 5, things look pretty good for "Eclipse," especially considering the franchise's Movie Awards history. Let's take a look at their 2011 prospects:

Best Movie
The competition: "Eclipse" is up against "Black Swan," "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1," "Inception" and "The Social Network."

Has "Twilight" won before?: Yes. In 2009, "Twilight" took home the prize, and in 2010, "New Moon" won. Will the streak stay alive for a third year? That's up to fans.

Best Female Performance
The competition: Kristen Stewart is up against Emma Stone ("Easy A"), Emma Watson ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1"), Jennifer Aniston ("Just Go With It") and Natalie Portman ("Black Swan").

Has "Twilight" won before?: KStew won in 2009 and 2010 and has her eye on the threepeat.

Best Male Performance
The competition: Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson are up against Daniel Radcliffe ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1"), Jesse Eisenberg ("The Social Network") and Zac Efron ("Charlie St. Cloud").

Has "Twilight" won before?: In 2009, no one from "Twilight" was nominated, and Zac Efron took it home for "High School Musical 3." In 2010, both guys were nominated and RPattz won (he also took home the Global Superstar award). Could this be Taylor's year?

Best Breakout Star
The competition: Xavier Samuel is up against Andrew Garfield ("The Social Network"), Chloë Grace Moretz ("Kick-Ass"), Hailee Steinfeld ("True Grit"), Jay Chou ("The Green Hornet") and Olivia Wilde ("Tron Legacy").

Has "Twilight" won before?: In 2009, RPattz won the then-gender-specific Breakthrough Male Performance award. In 2010, "Twilight" castmate Anna Kendrick won for her work in "Up in the Air." Perhaps some of that luck will rub off on Xavier?

Best Fight
The competition: Robert Pattinson's fight vs. Bryce Dallas Howard and Xavier Samuel is up against Amy Adams vs. the Sisters ("The Fighter"), Chloë Grace Moretz vs. Mark Strong ("Kick-Ass"), Daniel Radcliffe, Emma Watson and Rupert Grint vs. Death Eaters ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1") and Joseph Gordon-Levitt vs. Hallway Attacker ("Inception").

Has "Twilight" won before?: Cam Gigandet and Pattinson's big fight won in 2009, but "The Twilight Saga" wasn't nominated last year, when Beyoncé and Ali Larter took it home for "Obsessed." Perhaps voters will declare vamp fights the new catfights in 2011.

Best Kiss
The competition: Kristen Stewart's kiss with Robert Pattinson and her smooch with Taylor Lautner are up against Natalie Portman and Mila Kunis ("Black Swan"), Ellen Page and Joseph Gordon-Levitt ("Inception") and Emma Watson and Daniel Radcliffe ("Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1").

Has "Twilight" won before?: KStew and RPattz have ruled this category for two years running. Maybe fans will give the Bella and Jacob love a little shine at the 2011 Movie Awards.

Head over to to vote for your favorite flicks now! The 20th annual MTV Movie Awards air live Sunday, June 5, at 9 p.m. ET.

The Situation Signs MTV Series-Development Deal

'Jersey Shore' co-stars Snooki, JWoww and Pauly D have already inked deals to create spin-off shows for MTV.
By James Montgomery

The Situation is branching out.

According to a spokesperson for MTV, the "Jersey Shore" star has inked a series-development deal with the network, which will reportedly yield a pilot to be filmed later this year. No other details about the deal were available.

Sitch — real name Michael Sorrentino — is just the latest "Shore" star to get the green light for a new series: Last month, MTV announced it had entered into agreements with Snooki, JWoww and Pauly D to produce spin-off shows of their own. Snooki and JWoww will be featured on one show (about the dynamic duo's life away from Seaside Heights), while Pauly will star in a series that follows his career as an international DJ. Both shows are set to debut on the network in 2012.

The Situation's still-untitled project joins a long list of entrepreneurial endeavors for the man with the six-pack abs. He's already released an advice book and lent his name to a line of "protein-infused vodka," and late last year, he stopped by the MTV Newsroom to flog another pair of projects: his appropriately-titled "The Situation Workout" DVD and, of course, a collection of "shoelery" — basically, jewelry for your shoes — produced with a company called Luxury Laces.

In a statement to Variety, Sorrentino said that he's "excited" about his new series, and promised that it will feature plenty of what made him famous on "Jersey Shore."

"I'm excited to continue my relationship with MTV, which has been home for me for the last couple of years," he said. "I'm really grateful for all the support from my fans. Hopefully, there will be plenty more situations in the future."

"Moulin Rouge" truly was a "spectacular spectacular" when it dropped in 2001. That's why on Monday (May 2) MTV News is remembering the film a decade later with "Moulin Rouge at 10: A Spectacular Spectacular MTV News Event." Director Baz Luhrmann will be on hand to recall making the over-the-top film, which resurrected pop culture's love of musicals. And adding to the many celebrity fans who've described the film's influence on them, Adam Lambert spoke to MTV News about his love for "Moulin Rouge."

"I remember just loving it. I thought it was novel. First of all, movie musicals were just starting to come back and I thought it was really interesting to have a movie musical using already existing pop music," he explained. "That's kind of an amazing collaboration. Usually it's all original music or it's based on a Broadway musical, but this was using songs that we all know and tying them into the story. I thought it was really groundbreaking."

Other celebs who have recalled their fond feelings for the flick and its director include Joe Jonas, Vanessa Hudgens and Blake Lively.

MTV News will reunite Luhrmann, Nicole Kidman and Ewan McGregor today at 3 p.m. ET on The director and actors will be joined by co-star John Leguizamo, who played artist Toulouse-Lautrec, and Catherine Martin, who won the Oscar for costume design and art direction. Hosted by MTV News' Josh Horowitz, the live stream will include special appearances and live interviews while looking back at how the film came to be and how its legacy continues to grow.

Imagine a freight train speeding toward you at midnight. Or a rockslide barreling down a hill as you try to outrace it. That's the feeling of the ominous, chugging Jimmy Page riff that kicks off Led Zeppelin's 1970 Stonehenge of rock, "Whole Lotta Love." And that's before singer Robert Plant leans into one of the nastiest, ecstatic rock screams this side of the Who's "Won't Get Fooled Again."

That's the song Adam Lambert chose to sing on "American Idol" rock night Tuesday (May 5), and, needless to say, it was a challenge that the eyeliner-loving Los Angeles stage veteran was more than up for, hitting a series of high notes and rock screams that would have made Plant proud. It was a risky maneuver that paid off for Lambert, who chose a tune that came in at #75 on Rolling Stone magazine's list of the "500 Greatest Songs of All Time" in 2004.

The legendary British rock act recorded the tribute to Chicago blues icon Willie Dixon during their second U.S. tour after working it out in their live show, including it on their 1969 classic album Led Zeppelin II. Like many of the songs Zeppelin performed early in their career, "Love" was a blues standard turned on its head with a heavy dose of crunching psychedelic guitar and thundering drums, courtesy of late drummer John Bonham. The song was based on a 1962 tune by another blues forefather, Muddy Waters, called "You Need Love," which was penned by Dixon.

For Zeppelin's version, Plant customized the lyrics by adding some lyrical quotes from a few other songs Dixon wrote for Howlin' Wolf, "Back Door Man" and "Shake For Me," nailing the tricky vocal in a single take. It was also inspired by 1966's "You Need Loving" from the British rock group the Small Faces, for whom Zeppelin had great affection, but they also did not credit Dixon for his part in writing the original lyrics. The song became Zeppelin's first U.S. single and their only U.S. top 10 hit. Though their manager would not let them release singles in the U.K. because he thought it cannibalized album sales, the song was finally released as the band's only British single in 1997.

Dixon sued Zeppelin over the song in 1985, claiming it borrowed too heavily from his "You Need Love," and Zeppelin reached an agreement with him, with Dixon using the money he received to set up a program that provided musical instruments for schools. A cornerstone of heavy rock, the tune -- which was the theme song for the long-running British countdown show "Top of the Pops" in the 1970s and '80s -- has been covered by dozens of artists over the years, from Tina Turner and Ben Harper to Prince, Slash, Leona Lewis, Train's Pat Monahan, the London Symphony Orchestra and Jane's Addiction.

Will Ferrell Shaves Conan O'Brien's Beard

Conan O'Brien can't say he wasn't warned about the #beardpocalypse.

Last month, Will Ferrell made a Funny or Die video demanding Conan shave off his ginger beard or Will would do it for him when he came on his show May 2.

The comedian made good on his threat Monday night. As O'Brien sat waiting, Ferrell took a sip of "the blue stuff" used to disinfect combs and went to town!

Ferrell gave O'Brien a stack of 1970s-era "Playboy" magazines, asked him "Are you ready to feel the steel?" and let him have it with his razor, Excalibeard:

Will Ferrell Shaves Conan O'Brien's Beard

Starting with O'Brien's left side, Ferrell began to shave his beard and moustache, but not very well. He admitted he had only shaved dogs prior to this.

"That's horrible!" Conan exclaimed after looking in a mirror at his patchy facial hair. Then he took a hit of the blue stuff, and all was right with the world.

Australia's Mardi Grass: 10,000 hippies, police and marijuana

Mardi Grass

More than 10,000 marijuana activists and hippies are due to descend on the mountain village of Nimbin, about 780 kilometers north of Sydney, for the 19th annual Mardi Grass Festival this weekend.

Ever since revelers stayed put after the 1973 Aquarius Festival, an event sometimes described as Australia's Woodstock, the tropical region has been the dope growers' capital of Australia.

It?s home to characters like the long-bearded, alien-spotting ?Rusty? Harris ?- who attracted musicians and flea markets during his 20-something court appearances while successfully appealing a marijuana possession charge.

The green activism rolls on. Sunday?s parade will see a cavalcade of Kombi vans, an inflatable joint and a barrage of outdoor music.
