From Montreal to Hollywood

Celebrating reality
Forget about legitimate actors like the ones on 24, CSI or Passions (hahaha). Get ready for this fall's two-hour reality show awards which air on ABC and hands out prizes to bachelors, bachelorettes and questionably talented idols. Winners will be chosen by viewers via an online vote in categories such as Best Series and Most Memorable Moment. Go Paradise Hotel!

Kylie takes it "Slow"
A new Kylie Minogue single is set to drop in the U.K. on Nov. 3. Titled "Slow," the track was co-written with ethereal Icelandic songwriter Emilianna Torrini and is expected to appear on Minogue's next record which is currently in production.

Jesus, formaldehyde and lots of blood
Oh, those Brit bad boys. Artist Damien Hirst, well known for his use of animal carcasses floating in formaldehyde-filled containers, opens his new exhibit at London, England's White Cube Gallery today. Titled Romance in the Age of Uncertainty, the show combines those infamous works with rosaries, crucifixes, skulls and medical instruments drenched in blood to examine the story of Jesus and his twelve disciples. Let the protests begin.

Jada wants some Collateral
Michael Mann's (The Insider, Ali, Heat) next film Collateral is set to begin filming in October and in addition to the star power of Tom Cruise, Jamie Foxx and Val Kilmer, Jada Pinkett Smith is also set to join the cast. In the thriller, a taxi driver (Foxx) finds himself giving rides to a contract killer (Cruise) who is pursued by a detective (Kilmer). Smith's character? Foxx's character's love interest of course.

Indie rock convenes in Montreal
The line-up for this year's Pop Montreal festival that runs Sep. 25-28 is an independent music lover's wet dream come true. At various venues throughout Canada's European capital, Broken Social Scene, Stars, Cuff the Duke, Buck 65, Metric and The Dears will rub elbows with big time artists like Queens of the Stone Age, The Distillers and Sloan.
