  • 'X Factor’ teen Crow signs TV, record deal

    LOS ANGELES (AP) — Rachel Crow was a tearful runner-up on “The X Factor,” but she’s a winner now.
    The 14-year-old singer has signed a series deal with the Nickelodeon channel and a recording contract with Sony’s Columbia Records-Syco.
    Nickelodeon said Wednesday its agreement with Crow includes development of a comedy series for the teenager. She’ll also have a recurring role in Nickelodeon’s new program, “Fred: The Show.”
    Crow’s recording deal puts her in business with “X Factor” creator Simon Cowell’s Syco enterprise.
    The big-voiced teenager made a dramatic exit from “X Factor” last December: Crow collapsed onstage after she was voted off by viewers.

  • Netflix bolsters video library

    SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Netflix’s Internet video service is adding more marquee attractions as it braces for a new competitive threat from cable-TV provider Comcast Corp.
    As part of an effort to offer more exclusive material, Netflix locked up the right to show “The Artist” and other movies from The Weinstein Co. before the films are released to leading pay-TV channels such as Showtime and HBO.
    Just a few hours after Tuesday’s announcement about that multiyear deal, Comcast unveiled plans to undercut Netflix with a less expensive version of a service that will stream old TV series and movies to devices with high-speed Internet connections.

  • Jolie: New film should make people uncomfortable 


     Angelina Jolie said Monday she hopes her directorial debut “In the Land of Blood and Honey” will provoke a wider discussion about rape — something that the International Criminal Court’s prosecutor said could be extremely valuable in helping bring perpetrators to justice.
    Jolie, who received a Cinema for Peace award for her film and the group’s “honorary award for opposing war and genocide” for the movie focusing on the war in Bosnia late Monday, said she wants viewers to be “uncomfortable” when they see the film.

  • Triumph, tragedy dominate Grammy Awards 


    The splintered music world truly coalesces only one night of 365 for the Grammy Awards, and this year was united in the triumph of recovered British soul singer Adele’s trophy haul and the tragedy of Whitney Houston’s death.
    Adele swept the major honors of song, record and album of the year Sunday for her lost-love epic “21” and its driving single “Rolling in the Deep.” She picked up her final two awards after making her first public performance in months after being sidelined for throat surgery. Her total of six Grammys matched Beyonce for most ever by a female act.
