  1. Raptress Foxy Brown received some troubling news yesterday when her younger brother Gavin Marchand was sentenced to two and a half years in prison following his guilty plea on two counts of first degree identity theft back in August. Marchand, also well known as rapper "Pretty Boy Gav" was convicted of operating a credit card scam when the Brooklyn native purchased $8,000 from an Hermes store on Madison Ave in New York City. Gav was spotted by an undercover agent after he attempted to flee the store then led police on a breif police chase before the group were eventually arrested. The case also clears up charges where Marchand was accused of racking up a tab in the range of thousands of dollars at a New York City nightclub. During his sentence Gavin sat silently and didn't say a word when asked if he wanted to speak. According to sources Marchand will begin serving his sentence immediately. The 36 year old rapper made a name for himself as the sidkick to Fox then later as an original member of the Fox 5 group, that also included his younger sister. Similar to his sibling, Foxy has also witnessed her fair share of legal issues where at one point the rap diva spent one year incarcerated on New York City's infamous Rikers Island. The District Attorney handling the case against Gavin expressed the seriousness of the crime and others similar to it. "These criminal operations hurt consumers and businesses, and threaten the security of financial transactions" Manhattan DA Cyrus Vance told The New York Post. What did you think of Gavin's case?

  12. [i]by Amy Wilkinson[/i] [url="http://trailers.apple.com/trailers/wb/extremelyloudandincrediblyclose/"][img]http://moviesblog.mtv.com/wp-content/uploads/2011/09/extremely.jpg[/img][/url] Grab those tissues—the trailer for the heart wrenching "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/482668/moviemain.jhtml"]Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close[/url]," starring [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/82404/personmain.jhtml"]Tom Hanks[/url] and [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/8456/personmain.jhtml"]Sandra Bullock[/url], is here. Based on the 2005 novel by Jonathan Safran Foer, "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" tells the story of precocious 9-year-old Oskar Schell. It's no spoiler to tell you Oskar's father (Hanks) dies in the 9/11 attacks, as the novel picks up two years after the tragic events. But this isn't a 9/11 story so much as a journey of recovery. When Oskar stumbles upon a mysterious key left behind by his father, it incites a city-wide scavenger hunt of sorts to find the key's lock. And along the way, Oskar meets a cast of characters carrying their own stories of loss and overcoming. Directed by Stephen Daldry, who brought us the feel-good "Billy Elliot" starring Jamie Bell, Daldry has once again discovered a burgeoning young talent in newcomer Thomas Horn. With his wide-eyed wonderment and earnest affect, it's clear from this tiny two-minute glimpse that Horn will inspire plenty of eyeball-dabbing throughout the film. As will Hanks, whose portrayal of Oskar's father is warm and endearing—everything a beloved dad should be. Co-starring Viola Davis, John Goodman and James Gandolfini, "Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close" opens in limited release Christmas Day, going wide January 20.

  15. In addition to obsessing over casting announcements, set photos and plot details, we cinephiles love nothing more than a good old fashioned debate over the best performances in film history and the actors who delivered them. This "Who Played It Best?" game has endless possibilities for inciting fun-filled arguments with friends, and it's even more fun when you can get the actors in question involved. When MTV News caught up with [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/379429/personmain.jhtml"]Jonah Hill[/url] recently to address the [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/09/28/jonah-hill-moneyball-awards-buzz/"]award buzz surrounding his role in "Moneyball[/url]," we decided to throw in a question about the best onscreen stoners since, you know, he and his "[url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/419725/moviemain.jhtml"]Moneyball[/url]" co-star [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/person/50260/personmain.jhtml"]Brad Pitt[/url] have both played them. Not to mention the fact that a few of the movies Hill has made involve and/or revolve around pot smokers. [url="http://moviesblog.mtv.com/2011/09/29/jonah-hill-ponders-hollywoods-greatest-onscreen-stoners/"][img]http://mtv.mtvnimages.com/uri/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:696235?height=288&width=512[/img][/url] So who does Hill think played the better stoner, Pitt in "True Romance" or himself in "Knocked Up"? "I don't know, they're both great. What's funny is [James] Franco played a stoner in [url="http://www.mtv.com/movies/movie/330674/moviemain.jhtml"]"Pineapple Express"[/url] and I thought his was amazing. Brad in "True Romance" is pretty incredible, but Franco in 'Pineapple Express' I think is my favorite one." After thinking about it for a minute more, Hill changed his mind and decided to vote in favor of an old school classic and move Sean Penn's beloved character Jeff Spicoli from "Fast Times At Ridgemont High" to the top of the list. "Actually Spicoli is my favorite. Spicoli is the best stoner ever in a movie I think." [i]Do you agree with Hill's vote?

TMZ spoke with Tony Quartarone -- the station owner at KISS 101.7 -- who tells us he's not upset with Tyrese because he took a stand against liquor stores ... instead, he claims the problem was the way the singer addressed his listeners. Quartarone says, "Tyrese was not [url="http://www.tmz.com/2011/09/28/tyrese-radio-station-liquor-store-delaware-kiis-fm-booted-kicked-out-station-manager/"][b]kicked off the air[/b][/url] for pointing out that liquor stores should not be located near schools ... I totally agree with that. But ... he proceeded to downgrade my audience by calling them 'homies.'" Quartarone says he felt the language was condescending -- and that's why he asked Tyrese to leave the building Monday morning. After Tyrese tweeted about the incident, Quartarone says he decided to ban Ty's music until he gets an apology. He probably won't get one -- Tyrese called in to "TMZ Live" yesterday and told us he simply didn't care if the station takes his music out of rotation.

  25. Givenchy Creative Director and fashion designer Riccardo Tisci has found himself aligned with two of hip-hop’s brightest stars after designing the elaborate cover for the joint album from megastars Kanye West and Jay-Z, Watch The Throne. The jet setting Italian has catapulted himself into rap infamy with the album design and has been having quite a banner year as well in his own industry. Jay-Z’s lifestyle blog Life + Times caught up with Tisci as he discussed vacations, his love of hip-hop and working with Hov and Yeezy. Tisci afforded himself a luxury few will ever see with a month-long vacation in the paradise of Ibiza. “I went to Ibiza. I was supposed to go to Turkey. But, I had so much fun in Ibiza that I decided to spend the entire month in there,” said Tisci. “I love music and I have lots of friends who DJ, and it’s one of the best places for music.” When approached by Kanye West to tackle the album cover, Tisci admitted to having some doubt and said that he wasn’t ready. A professed fan of hip-hop and the dynamic duo, Tisci delighted in his retelling of the project. “When they first asked me, I was really scared. And then, we began the discussions about movies, DJs, general things. So, I felt that the collaboration was necessary.” Perhaps Riccardo Tisci will need to watch his own fashion throne as Kanye West plans to unveil his S/S 12 womens wear collection at Paris Fashion Week this coming Saturday (October 1). Fans and fashion insiders have been speculating for months what the inventive producer and rapper will debut at the lavish affair. Could a clothing collaboration happen between Kanye West and Riccardo Tisci? Stay tuned. What did you think of Riccardo Tisci’s interview? Are you excited about Kanye’s new line?
