This year, Super Junior made sure to drop by our shores to see their Malaysian ELFs (a moniker for their fans) after missing the opportunity to do so for Super Show 4 last year.
And this time around, Shindong, Ryeowook, Sungmin, Kangin, Donghae, Siwon, Kyuhyun, Heechul, Eunhyuk, Zhoumi and Henry certainly didn’t disappoint as their show, which was filled with impressive stage visuals and fireworks that accompanied their powerful vocals and choreography, lived up to the “Super Show” status.

ELFs went crazy when the members of Super Junior jumped onto the stage and quickly launched into Mr. Simple and Bonamana. Fans went ecstatic when Zhoumi and Henry joined the rest for Super Girl. Then the two members of Super Junior-M left the stage as the other members continued on with It’s You, Sexy, Free & Single, Boom Boom, and Club No.1.
Then, it was time for their subgroup performances with Eunhyuk, Donghae, Siwon and Henry starting up the segment with So Cold. Kyuhyun, Sungmin, Ryeowook and Zhoumi were up next with their own rendition of Laura Branigan’s How Am I Supposed To Live Without You, a song that was later made famous by Michael Bolton. After that, Shindong, Eunhyuk and Donghae drove ELFs insane when they shook their derrieres for Harlem Shake.
But what happened next drove the fans wild! Siwon, Ryeowook, Kangin and Sungmin, all dressed up as ladies, performed a short mash up with Siwon as Son Dam Bi for her single Saturday Night, Ryeowook as S.E.S for their song Loving You, Kangin as Ga In for her hit Bloom and Sungmin as HyunA for Ice Cream. And they all came together after that to perform SISTAR’s Alone.
Of course, what Super Show would be complete if Super Junior-M and Super Junior-K.R.Y didn’t perform? SJ-M showed fans what they’re made off by performing Break Down, A-Oh! and Go. And when it was time for SJ-K.R.Y, Kyuhyun and Ryeowook performed Gray Paper sans Yesung, who’s currently serving his mandatory military service. But they made sure to include Yesung as they played footage of him singing his part of the song that got everyone emotional.

After a series of slow songs that also included a medley of Bittersweet, Someday and Memories, they went back to being playful as they transformed into superheroes for Wonder Boy, which saw Donghae as Iron Man, Shindong as Hulk, Siwon as Captain America, Kyuhyun as Loki, Kangin as Thor and many more.
And when it was time to call it a night, the boys performed Marry U, which prompted fans to wave their “Let’s Get Married” banners. After saying their goodbyes and expressing their gratitude, all eleven members left the stage. But it wasn’t long before they returned for an encore with Sorry Sorry, Show Me Your Love, Sapphire Blue and last but not least, So I.

He may have beaten the likes of Idris Elba, Justin Timberlake and David Beckham for the title of Sexiest Man Alive, but Adam Levine claims that his fiancee found the whole thing funny.
Sexy and he knows it
When asked what her reaction was to the news, Adam said: "Laughter, a lot of laughter. She's keeping me humble."
And just how did he break the news to his future wife?
"Hey, how ya doing? Let's go to dinner tonight. And People magazine says I'm the Sexiest Man Alive," he revealed.
But how does he personally feel about adding this honour to his resume?
"As a musician, you have fantasies that you want to win Grammys, but I didn't think this was on the table," he said. "I was just amazed and stunned and it almost seemed like they were kidding, but they weren't so that's cool."
Well, enjoy it Adam! You've joined the ranks of past winners like Channing Tatum, Matt Damon, Hugh Jackman, George Clooney, Ryan Reynolds, Brad Pitt and Johnny Depp.
If there’s one thing people know about Taylor Swift, it’s that the goings on in her romantic life will find their way into her songs.
The Sweeter Than Fiction singer is famous for composing breakup or heartache songs about her string of famous ex-boyfriends, who include Jake Gyllenhaal, John Mayer and Harry Styles, but she insists she only writes if it was a meaningful romance, and there are plenty of men she chooses not to write about.
She told New York Magazine: "I only write songs about crazy love. If I go on two dates with a guy and we don't click, I'm not writing a song about that. "It didn't matter in the emotional grand scheme of things. There's a lot that goes on in daily life that isn't really worth turning into a verse and a chorus."
The 23-year-old country singer admits not all her beaus have been receptive to her music, although the ex her latest album was about -- widely thought to be actor Jake Gyllenhaal -- was very complimentary.
The pop princess claims being unpopular at school gave her the motivation to pursue a career in music. She added: "Daydreaming was kind of my No. 1 thing when I was little, because I didn't have much of a social life going on. I didn't always have 14,000 people wanting to hang out with me on a Saturday night.
"I always used to daydream about what it would be like to stand on a really big stage and sing songs for a lot of people."
Well, some dreams do come true. And Taylor Swift is living hers.
US TV channel AMC has ordered a pilot for a series based on critically acclaimed comic book series, Preacher.
Preacher, conceived by award-winning writer Garth Ennis, traces the wanderings of Jesse Custer, a Texan preacher man who becomes possessed by a supernatural entity that grants him powers and sets him on a mission to seek out God and hold Him responsible for the state of the world.
AMC, home to Mad Men, Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead takes pride in its cutting edge programing and if Preacher, if it gets made, will mark another feather in the network's cap.
One Direction's Louis Tomlinson has been branded "irresponsible" after tweeting out a web page link to a UK based health supplement company Bootea, that sells appetite suppressing products, to his 13.9 million Twitter followers.
Oops, it was an accident!
It all started when the 21-year-old boy bander tweeted, "Had an amazing @BooteaUK smoothie from Bootea.com this morning #booteashake" but was quick to delete the tweet after fans discovered that the website sells weight loss and diet supplements.
Lucy Russell, charity director of YoungMinds organisation that helps improve the mental health of young people, told Daily Mirror newspaper: "It's really irresponsible and short-sighted of him. Louis has such a huge audience -- especially young girls. It's very silly and remiss of him and the people around him. Three children in every classroom have a diagnosable mental health problem. Louis is a mentor to millions. The ones who are vulnerable are easily led and will be thinking: 'I'll buy some of that.'"
A spokesperson for Louis said that it was unintentional and that "Louis tweeted about the drink as he had one and enjoyed it. However, he did not realise they are associated with weight loss and would never endorse weight loss products."
Liam Hemsworth and Eiza González were spotted smooching just a day after it was announced that Liam and Miley Cyrus have ended their engagement. But apparently, Liam and Eiza's hook-up was just a publicity stunt.
Poor Liam ...
According to HollywoodLife.com, a source told the online site that "Liam told Miley he's not seeing Eiza anymore. He found out that she was tipping off photographers; she was totally using him! Miley is thrilled obviously -- it's street justice, especially after Eiza was so cocky about things."
And Miley was said to be "glad" that The Hunger Games: Catching Fire actor was played because he moved on from their four-year relationship way too soon. "[Miley has] forgiven Liam. But his hook-up with Eiza and the way he was so open about it really hurt her, so in a way, she's kind of glad he got used. Maybe it was a lesson he needed to learn. They just started talking again so it's not like they're back together, but they're in a way better place, I could see them giving things another shot," added the source.
Well, there is a possibility that they MIGHT get back together as the source also mentioned that the former couple, who met on the set of The Last Song back in 2009, are in contact and might meet up soon! "Liam and Miley are back in touch. They've forgiven each other, and are even talking about meeting up, probably around Thanksgiving," explained the source.
The Hunger Games: Catching Fire begins as Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) has returned home safely after winning the 74th Annual Hunger Games along with fellow tribute Peeta Mellark. Winning means that they must turn around and leave their family and close friends, embarking on a "Victors’ Tour" of the districts. Along the way, Katniss senses that a rebellion is simmering, but the Capitol is still very much in control as President Snow prepares the 75th Annual Hunger Games (The Quarter Quell) - a competition that could change Panem forever.

After the drama surrounding the casting of Christian Grey and Anastasia Steele for highly anticipated film Fifty Shades Of Grey, it looks like fans of the erotic trilogy will have to wait even longer to watch the movie.
Forget the original release date of 1 August, 2014. It's now pushed to Valentine's Day 2015 - 13 February to be exact.
Make no mistake, this decision has nothing to do with the fact that Charlie Hunnam dropped out of the project and Jamie Dornan needed more time to prepare.
The studio simply did not want Fifty Shades to compete with other big title films, family summer vacations and the World Cup in Brazil. The change in date would have been made even if Charlie had stayed on board.
Anyway, in case you were wondering about how Jamie Dornan and Dakota Johnson are getting on with prepping for their roles of Christian and Anastasia respectively, Entertainment Weekly went to find out from the stars themselves.
"Obviously, I want to look good naked," Dakota confessed to the magazine. "I totally understand now why people exercise, because it kind of f****** feels awesome."
But how does Jamie feel about the graphic sex scenes he'd be called upon to do?
"I'm a fairly worldly guy," Jamie revealed. "I grew up in a very liberal place. I'm not saying we had a playroom, but I'm not shocked by [the sex in the book]. It's essential to tell the story. I can't believe films that don't invoke the sexual side of it. So it works for me."
And if you're curious about what these two look like in character, go here to see for yourself. Don't know about you, but Dakota does seem to look a little like Alexis Bledel in the cover shot. What say you - are they close enough to the Christian and Anastasia that you imagined?
Not that I’m at all curios about Justin Bieber’s bedroom antics but reports have surfaced that Bieber is "very good" in bed, according to his Brazilian fling.
The Boyfriend hitmaker hit the headlines last week when footage emerged of him sound asleep after a night of passion with 27-year-old Tati Neves - whom Justin invited back to his rented villa in Rio de Janeiro along with a group of women - and the mother-of-one has boasted about his sexual prowess.
Tati said: "Take it from me, he's well endowed ... and very good in bed. A man must know what to do to make me happy. Justin did all that and more. It was one of the best moments in my life. It was marvellous and unforgettable." Tati - who has a five-year-old daughter with her estranged husband - claims Justin, 19, invited her and lots of other beauties to his Rio villa, but ultimately had eyes only for her and the pair soon escaped to the bedroom. The Brazilian beauty claims Bieber insisted on playing his own music while they had sex and he even begged her to come back for more after she had left.
Tati claims: "He has quite a fit body and he looked great naked. I didn't [go back] because I was exhausted. I just didn't have the strength. Justin has so much stamina."
Meanwhile, Tati insists she didn't post the now infamous clip of herself and Justin online, saying she filmed the video to prove to a friend she was indeed with the pop star.
She told The Sun newspaper: "I was still in bed with Justin when my friend texted me to say, 'Oi amiga, where are you?' I texted back, 'I'm here in bed cuddling up to Justin Bieber.'
"The video was just for her eyes only. I am really angry with her."
