Visit that site for the complete Q&A , excerpts from which are below: Criss, on staying in character : I definitely blew it a couple times. I was in San Francisco making shout-outs to my parents and Blaine’s probably never even been to San Francisco [laughs]. Riley, on feedback from fans : One of the great things about this show is social media: Twitter and Facebook. We continually get letters and tweets from fans telling us how each character has touched them in some way and how they changed them in some way. Colfer, on serving as a gay role model : It’s crazy when you represent such a select community. They always thank you so much when it’s really them who are brave and the strong ones. The stories that you hear are heartbreaking and inspiring.

Spice Girl Mel C on Rihanna: Too Sexual!

Former Spice Girls singer Mel C, a.k.a. Melanie Chisholm, is critical of Rihanna for being too sexual in her videos and on stage for her young fans. Mel, who has a two-year-old daughter Scarlet with boyfriend Thomas Starr, has grown concerned about the musician’s “inappropriate” imagery. In an interview with the Daily Mirror (UK), she said : “People have to take responsibility because we’ve got to a point where sexualization of children has gone too far. I think music is a big part of that. Women in music are extremely sexual and have young fans. It is inappropriate.” ” Rihanna has a responsibility and although culture’s always changing, it’s changed too much. It needs to be dealt with. It’s reached saturation point.” “We owe it to our kids to protect them.” Mel believes RiRi makes many of her X-rated artistic decisions – whipping reporters, dressing in next to nothing, her “S&M” video in general – because she isn’t a mother herself. That’s something she hopes will change one day. “I love Rihanna, I think she’s a f***ing brilliant artist, with great songs, a great record and she looks fantastic … but she’s not a mum. Maybe if she becomes one someday then she’ll feel different. I hope so anyway.” Mel and her Spice Girls bandmates – Victoria Beckham, Geri Halliwell, Mel B and Emma Bunton – were criticized in the late 90s for being too sexual. “Yes we wore crop tops, look how much has changed,” Mel C says. “We always sat down as a group and if somebody felt something was inappropriate for our young fans, we did something about it. I think that’s something younger people in the music industry today, like Rihanna, should do now.” What do you think? Is Rihanna a bad role model ? Is Mel C hypocritical? [Photos: WENN.com]

Rachel Weisz on The Whistleblower, Her Toronto Two-Fer and the ‘Experimental’ Terrence Malick

Rachel Weisz delivers an extraordinary performance in this week’s The Whistleblower , which features the Oscar-winner as a Nebraska cop whose stint as a UN peacekeeper in Bosnia unravels when she discovers her coalition’s complicity in an international sex-slavery ring. Based on true events involving Weisz’s character Kathryn Bolkovac, the film charts a downswing of humanity salvaged only by Bolkovac’s struggle to expose it and, in turn, Weisz’s sensitive handling of a woman coming to terms with a world beyond compassion.

The Dark Knight Rises Production to Fill Pittsburgh with Gunshots

Citizens of Pittsburgh, your local authorities have a message for you: If you hear gunshots, carnage, or superhero antics in your streets this weekend, do not assume that it’s because The Dark Knight Rises is filming. According to a report, Pittsburgh police want the city’s residents to dial 911 any time a mysterious noise disturbs them — even if it’s clearly just Christian Bale hollering about craft services and commanding Anne Hathaway to step away from his finger sandwich. The authorities have Pittsburgh’s best interest in mind, but still — I hope they aren’t deluged with reports of a rowdy thug who keeps claiming to be through with batsuits professionally.

Blink-182′s ‘Heart’s All Gone’: Back To Basics

Second song from band’s upcoming Neighborhoods album is equally indebted to both classic Blink and iconic West Coast punk. By James Montgomery Blink 182′s Mark Hoppus Photo: Jason Kempin/ Getty Images It’s easy to compare Blink-182 ‘s brand-new “Heart’s All Gone” with ” Up All Night ,” the first song they released off their upcoming Neighborhoods album, mostly because the similarities begin and end right there. They are both songs by the band, and they are both on the new record. Perhaps, then, it’s best to contrast the two songs, because they’re different in just about every conceivable way. “Up All Night” premiered with much fanfare — on the band’s site and L.A. radio station KROQ — and was greeted with much the same. “Heart’s All Gone,” on the other hand, bowed without much notice: just a quick link on Mark Hoppus’ Google Plus page that took you to a new website and a simple instruction to “Command the ‘A’ ” (or, if you’re on a PC, “CTRL + A”). Doing so on the new site, of course, revealed not only lyrics but the song itself. And that’s when the differences between the two tracks really become apparent. Because while “Up All Night” synthesized all of the band’s previous endeavors (Plus-44, Angels & Airwaves, Box Car Racer) into something entirely new, “Heart’s All Gone” does the complete opposite: It is very much a blast from the past — both Blink’s and the West Coast punk scene that birthed them. With its breakneck guitars, yelped vocals and cascading drums, it sounds like something taken from Blink’s 1997 Dude Ranch album (or ’01′s Take Off Your Pants and Jacket ), but at the same time, it also recalls classic West Coast churn and burn,

Where Are Our Parents: Two 8-Year-Olds Suspected In String Of Car Break-Ins

We have got to do better about preventing these little children from doing hoodrat isht with their friends. Atlanta police say two 8-year-old boys were among a number of juveniles implicated recently in a spate of burglaries in southwest Atlanta. “We are seeing an increase in burglaries in the Princeton Lake & Deerwood communities,” APD Zone 4 Commander Maj. Rodney Bryant wrote Monday in a email alert sent to affected residents. One of the incidents occurred last weekend when police interrupted an attempted car theft on Harwell Road in Zone 4. An 8-year-old suspect was detained along with a 14-year-old, but no charges were filed against the younger child, Bryant said. An 8-year-old also was suspected in a home break-in on Abbey Avenue near Washington and Ben Hill roads. He, too, was accompanied by an older youth, Bryant said. In both cases, the alleged junior bandits were returned to their parents. Bryant said Zone 4 officers have made a number of burglary-related arrests in recent weeks, with juvenile offenders accounting for more than half of those charged. Thank goodness Georgia kids go back to school this week and next… Damn delinquents! Source

Meek Mill Nabs Spot On MTV Jams’ Fab 5

Maybach Music Group MC joins Big Sean and Future on list of 2011′s hottest new hip-hop upstarts. By Rob Markman Meek Mill Photo: Jerritt Clark/FilmMagic Meek Mill is just trying to live up to his name. After the receiving the rap moniker “Meek Millionaire” from a deceased friend as a teen, the Philadelphia MC decided to tweak his handle — at least until his dreams become reality. “I was using that rap name when I was like 14, 15. But then, as I got older, 18, I started being in the streets. I ain’t calling myself no millionaire running around the streets and I’m hurting, so I just ended up cutting it short to ‘Meek Mill,’ and I left it at that,” he told MTV News. Now, Meek is part of Rick Ross’ Maybach Music Group and MTV Jams’ 2011 Fab 5 lineup, and well on his way to the money. Conceived on MTV Jams in 2005, the Fab 5 is a collection of the year’s most outstanding new hip-hop artists who have made a visual impact on the road to releasing their debut albums. Fab 5 alumni include Juelz Santana, Tony Yayo, Paul Wall, Young Jeezy, Kid Cudi, Drake and 2011 inductees Big Sean and Future . This year, MTV Jams, MTV News and Sucker Free will bring you 2011′s hottest new hip-hop upstarts, and Meek Mill is at the top of the list. Locally, Mill made a name for himself in Philly thanks to his fiery freestyles and street mixtapes, particularly his Flamerz series. His early efforts caught the attention of T.I. and Rick Ross, who collaborated with Meek on his “Ros

Wedding Breaks Out at Dark Knight Rises Fight Scene

When Christopher Nolan and Christian Bale met the press last week to preemptively thank Pittsburgh for letting The Dark Knight Rises have its run of the Steel City, they could really only anticipate the standard logistical headaches that accompany location filmmaking. You know: Traffic jams, parking shortages, detours, new brides wanting to check out the Batmobile… The usual.
