Meet Philly’s brew queen

RIKARD LARMA/METRO

Italian-born immigrant grew up in land of grapes, but has transformed Philly’s beer scene Founded city’s Dock Street Brewing back in 1985 You might call Rosemarie Certo the Ben Franklin of beer making. Or at the least, the Betsy Ross of craft brewing. Certo opened her first brewpub, on the corner of 18th and Cherry streets, with a simple idea: Let’s make some good American beer and sell it. That was in 1985. Today, her company, Dock Street Brewing, is a Philadelphia institution and bastion for beer lovers. The small brewpub in Center City has moved to 50th and Baltimore in West Philadelphia, but the philosophy remains the same. “When we opened in 1985, our corporate mission was to elevate the status of beer because up until then beer was relegated to sawdust on the floor and chicken wings,” Certo said. “And now we’ve raised the level of beer and brought it to a noble beverage.” Certo is a self-made American success story in its truest definition. She was born in Sicily, then moved to Philadelphia when she was 10. She is a philosophy and humanities major who had no prior experience running a business. Certo simply started home brewing with hope that someone would like it and buy it. “It came from an innocent idea, you can’t buy good American beer so let’s make it and then we sell it,” Certo said. “If we knew what we were getting into, we probably would have been too scared or

“Where I got it from is that my family would grow grapes and olives and olive trees, and they were into making wine and olive oil. That was the family business.” CERTO something.” At first glance, Certo doesn’t look like your stereotypical brewmaster. Ask her how old she is and she just smiles. “No lady will tell you that,” Certo said. “Our consulting brewer once told me that a woman who will tell her age will tell anything.” And Certo’s delicate accent does little to solve that mystery. Still, it’s hard to imagine how an Italian immigrant acquired a taste for suds growing up in Sicily. Yet that’s exactly where it took root, in the grape and olive fields. “As a child, I learned how to do things with my hands,” she said. “You grow grapes when you make wine, and that was all part of my makeup when I came to America.” MIKE GREGER

Certo, at her brewery a few years ago, has also had her eyes on improving beer.

There’s a beer for that season PHILADELPHIA. Certo’s most

recent project is a collaboration with the Four Seasons. Certo said the world-class hotel actually approached her with the idea. After she said yes, the Four Seasons sent their top chefs to Dock Street to meet with her brewers and figure out how they

could make a “really special beer.” The result has been “A Beer Four All Seasons.” The line has produced three seasonal brews already: Truffled Old Ale, Caliente

Golden Ale and Bubbly Wit. The beers are poured exclusively at the Four Seasons’ Swann Lounge. They will debut their fourth one at next month’s Philly Beer Week. “None of these beers have ever been done before,” Certo said. “We’re going to be releasing the fourth seasonal in June for Philly Beer Week, and that’s going to be with a Verbena herb and sour cherry.” METRO/MG

Rentals you might ride

RIKARD LARMA/METRO

Darrell Clarke says lawmakers still exploring point-to-point bicycle sharing Would allow riders to borrow in one area, drop off in another Around the chamber Legislation and commentary from Thursday’s Council hearing also included: Councilman Bill Green’s proposition allowing for parking tickets to be contested by methods other than appearing in person was amended to remove telephone hearings, except for disabled. Philadelphia Gay News Publisher celebrated the passage of legislation sponsored by Councilman Mark Squilla allowing for the city to sell off land on South 13th Street so the planned William Way LGBT senior-living facility can move forward.

The same day legislation to extend the city’s concession agreement for bicycle rentals in Fairmount Park was introduced, City Council President Darrell Clarke said Thursday that the governing body is also looking into another model of bike sharing citywide. While bikes can currently be rented in Philadelphia through isolated companies, primarily at certain tourist locations like Fairmount Park, Clarke said he’s interested in investigating a more comprehensive citywide system of point-to-point bike shares. “They are primarily recreational right now, but bike shares could act as a transit situation,” he said. “If people could rent a bike near their home, ride it to work and leave it at a bike station near their job, it might be more advantageous.”

It’s not the first time Council has considered the issue – in 2008, they passed a resolution sponsored by Councilwoman Blondell Reynolds Brown requesting the Deputy Mayor of Transportation and Utilities to conduct a feasibility study for what they called “public use bicycle stations” for the entire city. The results of the study, released in 2010, found there was a robust market for the service in Philadelphia and suggested starting off with 1,750 bicycles in a 15-mile area stretching from Center City to parts of North, South and West Philadelphia. But with a projected $4.4 million per year price tag, the project fell by the wayside as the city had to make difficult financial decisions during the economic downturn. Similar challenges remain for the city.

Philly still lags behind other cities Philadelphia lags behind other U.S. cities when it comes to bike sharing. Boston, New York City, Baltimore and Washington are all expected to have point-to-point systems in place by this summer, according to nonprofit Bike Share Philadelphia, which says members have sent more than 2,000 letters to Nutter since 2008 advocating for a similar program here. METRO/AW ALEX WIGGLESWORTH awigglesworth@metro.us

Renting is often just for tourists in places like Fairmount Park, but “point-to-point” would make it easier for residents.

Silicon Valley startup Pinterest raised $100 million from a group led by Japanese online retailer Rakuten Inc., valuing the company at about $1.5 billion and underscoring the huge investor appetite for social-networking companies. Pinterest, an online scrapbook where users can “pin” images and follow others, has grown from less than 1 million users in May 2011 to about 20 million in April, according to IT research house comScore. The 3-year-old company, led by co-founder Ben Silbermann, had been seeking financing for several weeks, but many investors were wary about the billion-dollar valuation, venture capitalists said. That valuation puts Pinterest beyond the reach of all but a handful of potential acquir-

Super PAC attacks have yet to begin

Metropolitik BRAYDEN SIMMS POLITICAL WORLDLINESS FOR AN IMPOLITE WORLD

@METROPOLITIK

METRO ILLUSTRATION/NATE JONES

For complaints, suggestions and digital attaboys, e-mail us at brayden.simms@metro.us.

In the campaign silly season, faux scandals erupt with the reliability of Old Faithful. And much like the famous Yellowstone geyser, they’re mostly gone with predictable haste. So it was on Thursday morning, when a front page story by the New York Times set the Internet a-twitter with snark. The article in question, “G.O.P. ‘Super PAC’ Weighs Hard-Line Attack on Obama,” detailed a provocative proposal for billionaire conservative Joe Ricketts to mount a super PAC offensive reiterating links between the president and his former pastor, Rev. Jeremiah Wright.

The proposal — from which Ricketts distanced himself following hours of Web mockery — played on right-wing fears that President Obama was never properly vetted by the media and that untold stories of his youth hold the key to understanding his allegedly radical beliefs. (The ones, presumably, that he hides beneath his disappointingly moderate exterior.) One of the most damning elements of the report was the suggestion that Ricketts’ Ending Spending Action Fund find an “extremely literate conservative African-American” spokesman, one who can isolate the group from charges of racism while calling attention to the reality of Mr. Obama’s cultivated image as a “metrosexual, black Abe Lincoln.”

“That record was cool some four score and seven years ago!” Something that might be said by “metrosexual, black Abe Lincoln,” maybe.

Twitter and assorted news outlets had a good deal of fun over it all (Call him the Great Manscaper!); Mitt Romney gave a half-throated condemnation of attack ads while taking the opportunity to attack his rival; and Ricketts said he’d spend his $10 million on another attack. Meanwhile, we learned the lengths to which big-money donors may go to get a Republican in the White House. For billionaires like Ricketts, no price is too high if it can get us to buy into the myth that Obama is a dangerous extremist — so they can swoop into power and unfurl their own very real dangerous, extremist agenda. Make no mistake: The super PAC era has only just begun. Metro does not endorse the opinions of the author, or any opinions expressed on its pages.

Why hello, better movies The first half of the year is a notorious dumping ground for studio stinkers — save “The Hunger Games,” of course. We’ve suffered enough! “The Avengers” was just a tasting of the treats in store over the next three months as things heat up in the city. First, we take a look at some of the most hotly anticipated films that we’ve been dying to see since well before the new year.

SUMMER MOVIES CONQUER ALL

June 1 ‘Snow White and the Huntsman’ Whether or not you’re a Kristen Stewart fan, one look at the trailer for this gritty reimagining of the traditional fairy tale is enough to see that this ain’t no “Twilight.” Charlize Theron plays the evil Queen Ravenna, and Chris Hemsworth is the titular Huntsman who — though sent to slaughter Ms. White — becomes her mentor and protector.

‘Prometheus’ We like to talk about Michael Fassbender quite a bit in this paper, because he is so devastatingly handsome. But the main attraction for the film in which he stars this summer is much larger than just one actor. Helmed by “Alien” director Ridley Scott, “Prometheus” shows what happens when humans in the future travel to a foreign planet to discover their origins. TWENTIETH CENTURY FOX

July 3 ‘The Amazing Spiderman’

‘Abraham Lincoln: Vampire Hunter’ We’re not sure how much a camp factor will come into play with this wacky idea for a film, considering President Lincoln will be played by high-brow Juilliard grad Benjamin Walker. But the plot summary really is that Abraham Lincoln decides to vanquish those vamps once he realizes they are planning to take over the U.S. STEPHEN VAUGHAN TM

Even though there have been a bajillion iterations of Spidey in the last several years, everyone’s anxious to get a look at this one, portrayed by “The Social Network”’s Andrew Garfield and co-starring his real-life girlfriend Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy.

The final installation of Christopher Nolan’s brilliant imagining of Batman has a few tricks up its sleeve, if the spooky trailer is any indication.

The summer months are the best time for top-notch funny men and women to take over the box office. So take that, Batman.

“We don’t need no superpowers,” say these films about tough dudes duking it out in the past, present and future.

JUNE

“G.I. Joe: Retaliation,” June 29 Though 2009’s “G.I. Joe: Rise of the Cobra” only got middling reviews, here we have the second installment, starring looksthat-could-melt-your-semiautomatic Channing Tatum as Captain Duke Hauser alongside Bruce Willis and Dwayne Johnson.

AUGUST

“Total Recall,” Aug. 3 Filling the shoes of one erstwhile California governor who played the role in 1990, Colin Farrell is a man of the future who goes to a clinic to

have memories of a more interesting life planted into his head. When the procedure goes awry (or does it?), he finds himself hunted by the government. “The Expendables II,” Aug. 17 Chuck Norris is in this movie. That is all you need to know. Liam Hemsworth also joins the rest of the crew, which is on a revenge mission once one of their own gets killed in the line of duty. But come on, Chuck Norris! “Lawless,” Aug. 31 Rocker Nick Cave penned this Prohibition-era film about brothers who get into the bootlegging business. Loaded with top-flight talent like Tom Hardy, Jessica Chastain and Gary Oldman, this could be a sleeper hit.

“That’s My Boy,” June 15 We’re hoping that the presence of “Saturday Night Live”’s Andy Samberg will make this movie not stink, especially considering Adam Sandler’s last few films were truly awful (“Jack and Jill,” we’re looking at you). In this one, Sandler plays a man-child who fathered and raised his own child (Samberg) when he was only 18. When they reconnect several years later, each finds themselves coming undone. “Seeking a Friend for the End of the World,” June 22 Consider this one the flip side of “Melancholia,” since it also deals with a heavenly body that is destined to come crashing into Earth. But here, with Steve Carrell and Keira Knightley co-starring, it’s a comedy!

“Madea’s Witness Protection,” June 29 Oh Madea, Madea, Madea. What are you up to now? Rather than getting into trouble herself, she’s hosting a family who is a part of the witness protection program.

“Ted,” July 13 “Family Guy”’s Seth MacFarlane is the brains behind this story of a man (Mark Wahlberg) whose random wish makes a teddy bear he had as a child come to life — albeit as a foul-mouthed scumbag voiced by MacFarlane himself. “The Watch,” July 27 Previously titled “Neighborhood Watch” — but likely changed due to tragic events in the news — this comedy stars Ben Stiller, Vince Vaughn, Jonah Hill and Richard

If there’s one man who can make acting with a talking bear believeable, it’s this guy. Mark Wahlberg stars in “Ted.”

‘The Dictator’’s uncle MELINDA SUE GORDON

Soon to play the rival to Tony Stark in “Iron Man 3,” Sir Ben Kingsley first takes on Admiral General Aladeen in “The Dictator.”

T

he man who played Ghandi has portrayed many other heavy characters throughout his long career, but a king of comedy, he’s never been. Sir Ben Kingsley is the first to own up to this, but it seems worth giving it a shot in order to work with a man whom he mentions in the same breath as Charlie Chaplin. “The great ones, like Chaplin and Sacha Baron Cohen — definitely say them in the same breath, definitely — make it look effortless,” he says. “It’s not effortless.” In the latest film from the man responsible for Ali G, Borat and Bruno, Sir Kingsley portrays the menacing uncle of Admiral General Aladeen (Cohen), the dictator of fictional African nation Wadiya. Though he’s not dropping the one liners the way Baron Cohen gets to, this English actor brings an air of sophistication to the film, and even to our own interview with him.

With any Sacha Baron Cohen project, the humor comes out of how truthful it is. What’s the most important ‘serious message’ that this film delivers?

I am hoping personally that it will reveal in people perhaps some hidden fears or prejudices. ... [Baron Cohen and his creative team] voice certain phobias, prejudices. … It might cause people to feel resentment, not offense, because Sacha’s character is saying things that, if they said it, they would be arrested or lose their job, but they are capable of saying those things. I think that’s where satire is really valuable.

You got to spend a lot of time holding Baron Cohen’s hand throughout the film. How was that for you?

That is the relationship, you see. I am his uncle, and I know that he’s still a child, so whatever street he has to cross, be it in the U.N. or arriving in New York, or going to a nuclear facility, he’s crossing a

WEEKEND, MAY 18-20, 2012

Surprise: Sir Ben Kingsley teams up with Sacha Baron Cohen for the spoof ‘Satire is really valuable’ Q&A Sacha Baron Cohen was responsible for “Borat,” which many have said was one of the best movies of the last decade. It did not receive a Best Picture Oscar nomination. Why do comedies never get recognized in that category? I think there’s this misconception that’s completely understandable, that comedy is easy — that we’re basically having fun. I could talk for years trying to dispel this myth, but nobody wants to hear. Sacha was talking to me about the science of comedy — how he numerically grades from 1 to 10, the value of a certain reaction. Where it is in the film, whether to go for two 7s or cut them and go for a 10 and always to keep poking at the [prejudiced] nerve that I was referring to earlier.

street. I know he’s a total idiot and I’ve done nothing to further his education, or his well being. It’s better for my character, the uncle, to infantilize and keep him there. So then would you put this performance on par with playing Ghandi?

My body chemistry changes to the same degree on the word action, no matter what I’m doing. Whether it’s a marathon or a series of sprints, I still have to use the same muscles, so I can’t really differentiate. We hear you’re going to play “The Mandarin” in “Iron Man 3” — can you confirm that?

Almost — but not quite. I’ll be able to confirm them by the end of this month. Why do a comic book movie?

I loved comics as a kid, not so much as an adult, but I really would love to go back to that world. It won’t be fun. It’ll be a lot of work. HEIDI PATALANO

Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz star in “What to Expect When You’re Expecting,” in theaters now.

To adopt or not? So with all the pregnancy horror stories — both onscreen and off — might Lopez make like her character and consider adoption as an option for her next child?

"SHIRLEY

“It’s funny, because before the movie I never really thought about adoption at all. I just always wanted to have my own baby,” she says. “But after the film and during the making of the film, when I held those two little Ethiopian twins, I fell in love instantly. It really oc-

curred to me: I can see how somebody can do this, how it is so easy to embrace a child who has nothing. It’s really a beautiful, selfless act of love, and it’s something that you go, ‘OK, I understand these feelings, I get this, I know how this happens.’”

Lopez and Diaz talk giving birth “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” — based on the best-selling pregnancy manual — is supposed to be about the highs and lows of having a child, but stars Jennifer Lopez and Cameron Diaz are more interested in the more horrific aspects. “I had a C-section, but my sister gave birth six months later,” Lopez remembers. “She asked me to be in the delivery room with her. Because I had twins and it was recommended for me to have a C-section, there was a part of me that had thought, ‘I didn’t get to do it the way that everybody else does.’ But when I saw my sister pushing that baby out I was

MACLAINE'S BEST ROLE IN YEARS." – Rex Reed, THE NEW YORK OBSERVER

“My pregnant breasts were really amazing. I was like, ‘Wow! Those are awesome!’” DIAZ like, ‘Maybe this was all right!’” Diaz, who doesn’t have any children of her own, explains that she got a crash course in the gruesome realities at age 25 when her sister gave birth — and it may have shaded her own views on pregnancy. “I was in [the delivery room] and they were doing a C-section,” Diaz remembers. “There was just, like, blood everywhere, my sister’s guts out on a platter — the inside, all of her intestines. It was crazy, dude.” As grisly as that sounds, Diaz insists the other option isn’t that appeal-

ing, either. “The vaginal delivery was crazy,” she says. “No man should ever see it! Never let a man see that.” Luckily, the film focuses on many other aspects of being pregnant. For Diaz, part of the fun of making “What to Expect When You’re Expecting” was the prosthetic enhancements she got to wear — even if they didn’t stand up to the elements. “My pregnant breasts were really amazing,” Diaz says with a laugh. “I was like, ‘Wow! Those are awesome!’ But then, when they put them on in the Atlanta heat, I aged about 40 years by the end of two hours. They were literally hanging down to my hips! They were just drooping down, like they were just melting off my body, and it was really not attractive.” NED EHRBAR METRO WORLD NEWS IN LOS ANGELES

nlike other cookbooks that sit pretty on your living room bookshelf, Mark Bittmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest release, â&#x20AC;&#x153;How to Cook Everything The Basics: All You Need to Make Great Food,â&#x20AC;? stays in the kitchen. Even the venerable New York Times food writer uses the book as a reference while putting together his sensible and delicious meals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You think I remember everything thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in there? No!â&#x20AC;? he says with a chuckle. The book â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a collection of 185 classic recipes along with instructions for fundamental techniques â&#x20AC;&#x201D;

â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are afraid to drive also, but everyone eventually gets in a car and drives. No one drives well the ďŹ rst time. And very few people are going to cook well the ďŹ rst time.â&#x20AC;? BITTMAN

Heavy Periods? Pelvic Pain? Frequent Urination? Constipation/Bloating? You might have uterine fibroids Uterine fibroids are non-cancerous tumors that grow on or in the muscles of the uterus (womb). At least 35 percent of women in the U.S. have fibroids. African American women are more likely to develop fibroids.

graphs. Some people would say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to cook anything that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to look like.â&#x20AC;? So I just keep pushing to do something that really addresses these issues.

Why did you want to publish â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Basicsâ&#x20AC;??

I go to the produce section and buy everything that looks good. And then I keep a really well stocked pantry. I want people to say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to the store to buy what looks good, and then Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to come home and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a cookbook I can look at thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to tell me what to do with the stuff I just bought.â&#x20AC;? And hopefully Mark Bittman tells you what to do with it.

It goes back 12 years, actually, to the publication of the original â&#x20AC;&#x153;How to Cook Everything,â&#x20AC;? when there were three complaints. One â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is very amusing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; is it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a recipe for chicken pot pie. Then the more serious complaints were that it was overwhelming â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and some beginners did not like it. They picked it up and they said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know where to start.â&#x20AC;? Those people would come up to me and say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to cook everything. I want to cook something.â&#x20AC;? The other complaint was that it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have photo-

What do you say to people who are afraid to cook?

People are afraid to drive also, but everyone eventually gets in a car and drives. No one drives well the first time. And very few people are going to cook

well the first time. It means you need to be willing to make mistakes, and there’s a level of maturity that indicates. You have to say, “I have to go through a learning curve on this. Learning curves can be fun. I’m not going to be very good at it — but if I apply myself, after a while I’ll be good at it, and that will be really cool.” And that’s the attitude you need to have.

Tools of the trade What appliances do you recommend for small spaces? An appliance that I think is worth getting is a food processor, because I think it’s really useful. Blenders are less important, but are nice to

have. I think little gadgets are much more important: a set of three or four really good knives, a good vegetable peeler, a cheap mandolin, a grater, like a microplane, for parmesan. I don’t have much more than that.

Director: Peter Berg Cast: Taylor Kitsch, Aleksander Skarsgard, Rihanna Rating: PG-13 Grade: –—˜™š What’s next, “Jenga: This Time It’s Personal”? It was uncertain how they could possibly turn a board game into a movie, and now that we’ve seen it, it’s clear that it can’t be done — very well, at least. Two-plus hours of soulless claptrap and joyless cacophony of twisted metal, AC/DC songs and angry aliens does not a movie make. Here’s a new title: “Shock and Awful.” If you are going to see this movie, go for the whole thing. That way by the time the movie gets to the attack, you’ll be so tired of the Hopper Brothers (Taylor Kitsch and Alexander Skarsgard) and the stoic admiral (Liam “Paycheck” Neeson) that you’ll pray the aliens (big lizardeyed creatures in “Iron Man” drag) will make short work of

‘What to Expect When You’re Expecting’

Directed by: Kirk Jones Stars: Cameron Diaz, Jennifer Lopez, Brooklyn Decker Rating: PG-13

Grade: –—˜™š The problem with big ensemble comedies that weave five stories is that no single tale ever gets involved enough for true engagement. In “What to Expect,” a quintuplet of couples struggles through all the cliched contrivances of childbirth — minus single parenthood, that is. The frothy comedy placates to the played-out parental mindset with predictable reassurance, making this one baby without any real teeth. STEVE GOW

Robb Stark bares all There are few heroes on â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Game of Thronesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; But if one character offers hope, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the King in the North Richard Madden opens up and doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let us down



into Robbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s armor with stoic optimism. How is Robb adjusting to the title of King in the North?

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learning by doing. A lot of the time, in front of his men, you see him posturing. Robb is acting. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been very clever and made some great decisions and earned the respect of the people who follow him, but a lot of the time he is pretending to be king. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel like

thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s supposed to be, but he is. By having to pretend to be a man, he becomes a man. He meets a woman who asks: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Why are you ďŹ ghting?â&#x20AC;?

Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spent so much time being a king and leading an army, and then he meets this woman who calls him out. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a boy, she kind of sees him as a man, she asks, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are you doing?â&#x20AC;? She makes him question himself. And then he works it out and says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, I am [doing the right thing].â&#x20AC;? It gives him a renewed confidence. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willing to be persuaded if he can tell her this is right. But he has to work hard â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not going to make it easy for him. AMBER RAY

Richard Madden stars as Robb Stark on â&#x20AC;&#x153;Game of Thrones,â&#x20AC;? airing Sundays at 9 p.m. on HBO.

In two seasons of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Game of Thrones,â&#x20AC;? Robb Stark has grown from dutiful teenage son to upstart â&#x20AC;&#x153;King in the North.â&#x20AC;? It was an accelerated maturation, to say the least, one thrust on him when the monarch in the south murdered his father, whose men in the north now fight a war against the crown in Robbâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s name. But the rise to power hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come without growing pains, says actor Richard Madden, who steps

Metro’s Monica Weymouth shares her take on the world of gossip

efore his impossibly square jaw and superhero-grade shoulders were landing him movie roles, Channing Tatum was a stripper — not that he’s shy about it. His new film, “Magic Mike,” is loosely based on his former gig, and he wants everyone to see it — not just those who would have killed to play his little spoon in “The Vow.” “With Joe Manganiello naked in a movie, I think even straight guys are going to be, ‘S—, I need to see that,’” the actor tells OUT’s June/July issue of his co-star.

ly love and positivity for her,” Brand tells Ellen DeGeneres in an interview. “But sometimes, when you’re in a relationship, I suppose it doesn’t work out, does it? But that doesn’t mean I regret it or anything.” It also doesn’t mean he wants to keep up with Perry, though: Last week, Brand un-followed his ex on Twitter.

When we caught up with “Real Housewives of New Jersey” star Teresa Giudice to talk about her new book, “Fabulicious Fast & Fit,” she let us in on another project she’s working on.

“That man is a specimen.” (Go ahead — this one is worth the Google intermission.) But while he’s never tried to hide his past, Tatum admits he prefers his new job to stripteasing. “You are on a stage with people yelling at you, and you feel you’re a rock star, but you’re nothing — you’re just a guy taking off his clothes, looking like a fool in a stupid outfit,” he says. We would point out that he essentially did the same exact thing in “Dear John,” but there was that scene where he squinted on a porch for awhile.

“I just formulated my own bellini — it’s called Fabellini, and it’s peach and raspberry,” she says. “Eventually it’s gonna be national, it’s gonna be sold at all liquor stores.

the magazine’s list of the most powerful stars based on their earnings and social media reach. Last year, Gaga held the top spot, but for 2012 she’s slipped to number five. The new leaders? Jennifer Lopez, followed by Oprah Winfrey, Justin Bieber and Rihanna, in that order.

Donna Summer helped invent the genre.

‘Queen of Disco’ Donna Summer dead at 63 After a battle with cancer, singer Donna Summer passed away Thursday morning at the age of 63. The singer, who was born LaDonna Gaines in Dorchester, Mass., was known as the “Queen of Disco” because of her string of mega hits in the 1970s, which included “Hot Stuff,” “Love to Love You Baby” and “Last Dance.” In a little more than a year, she charted four No. 1 singles. Though she reached superstardom and earned most of her five Grammy awards in the disco era, Summer’s success stretched into more contemporary times. She landed No. 1 singles in the ’80s, ’90s, 2000s and

“Terminator 3: Rise of the Machines” star on May 9, according to TMZ. Stahl has reportedly been spending a lot of time around L.A.’s Skid Row area, and his wife, Rose, has suggested drugs may be involved. In February, she filed court papers declaring that the two were separated and asking that Nick’s time with their 2-year-old daughter be limited and supervised.

even this decade: “To Paris With Love” topped the Billboard Dance Charts in October of 2010. The singer will probably best be remembered for not only her contribution to disco, but her help in inventing the genre with producer Giorgio Moroder. The songs were often long symphonic suites with relaxed funky back beats and Summer’s sexy coo breezing on the top layer. But as the trend faded, Summer was able to distance herself from disco. She had one of her strongest hits in 1983 with “She Works Hard For the Money,” an anthem of female empowerment that showed Summer was ready for the MTV age. The singer was diagnosed with cancer but had reportedly been well enough to work on an album in Florida until her health took a turn for the worse. PAT HEALY

Kristen Stewart, who met boyfriend Robert Pattinson

while co-starring in the “Twilight” films, is eager to get together with him on-screen again. “I’m dying to make another movie with Rob, I think that we’re a good team,” she tells Celebuzz. But are they open to teaming up for the movie version of “Fifty Shades of Grey,” the romance novel that was inspired by their “Twilight” characters? “I haven’t read it, so I don’t know what it is, but I would love to work with him again.”

Footloose and hands-free

Conan the helper Watts, a Montana native who cut his performing teeth in Seattle before moving to Brooklyn, got a career leg-up when Conan O’Brien took him under his wing a couple of years ago. “Yeah, he did give me a boost and that really helps,” Watts says. “I just like to tinker around and be happy performing.”

Musician Reggie Watts on acting, comedy and shying away from projects that are ‘too contracty’

NOAH KALINA

Wisely, Reggie Watts puts on a Bluetooth headset to chat as he’s driving to LAX. It’s comforting that he’s chosen to go hands-free; to know he’s safe. Except he’s not actually driving. “No, I have a professional to do that,” he says somewhat aghast, like driving the strange L.A. streets is a preposterous idea. “I’m just going hands-free … for no reason. I like handsfree.” Hands-free and ready to multitask at any moment, because that’s how he works: improvising music live via good, old-fashioned on-the-spot recording, looping and beat boxing, and riffing in comedic turns at will. And it’s working for him. This spring, Watts’ tour zips through the U.S.; his May-released live CD/DVD “Reggie Watts: A Live In Central Park,” which premiered on Comedy Central, is joined by a second release, “Reggie Watts Live at Third Man Records,” which was recorded at Jack White's Nashville Studio. Next month, he’s in the cast of IFC’s “Comedy Bang! Bang!” performing music with “Mad Men” star Jon Hamm, among other things. He

just finished a cameo role in Steven Soderbergh’s upcoming film “Bitter Pill,” too. “I did a scene with Jude Law. That was very weird, surreal. I was the crazy person on the street yelling,” Watts laughs. “I want to do more film. There are a lot of studios asking me if I have any ideas. But I don’t want things to be too contracty. I want things to be simple. I want to just keep doing some fun stuff.”

Check your work: Budget math off RE: “ON THE US DEFICIT: PARTY POLITICS RULE”: Sorry, Mr. Pen-

ner, you can’t refute facts either! The enormous cost (after a major tax cut) of financing the Iran and Afghanistan wars was kept off-budget all during the Bush presidency. That’s a major factor in the deficit today, no matter how much Republicans try to deny it. KATHY KOURIAN, VIA E-MAIL Bush actually inherited a $258 billion on-budget primary surplus; as you stated, the national debt stood at $10.6 trillion when he left office. However, Bush kept the cost of two wars off budget and the U.S. military has largely paid for the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan through emergency spending measures, in effect keeping

wartime costs off the books. In addition to masking skyrocketing budget growth at the Department of Defense, this process allowed the services to treat budget supplementals as a piggy bank. So the actual price of these war is still unknown and is part of the deficit that you place at President Obama’s feet. Obama took office in the middle of the biggest deficit year in history, dealing with two wars and the most severe recession since the 1930s. It seems to me, Mr. Penner, that your letter supports the fact that “Republicans distort facts to destroy the Obama presidency.” BARB MILUSKI, VIA E-MAIL

According to Larry Penner, our national debt was $10.6 trillion when Obama took office and currently stands at

#1 DAILY NEWSPAPER IN CENTER CITY

$16.4 trillion. Larry’s numbers suggest an increase of $5.8 trillion. Larry instead suggests that Obama somehow increased our debt by $6.6 trillion and $5.6 trillion. Not only is this internally inconsistent, neither of these is equal to the increase as calculated by Larry’s own numbers. How much credence should we give to the fiscal views of a man who has apparently failed basic math?

Taurus April 20-May 20. If you feel stifled, there’s a good chance you could be getting in your own way by thinking you have to follow some kind of schedule. Relax and let the moment dictate your actions. Gemini May 21-June 20. Don’t prematurely reveal your plans or ideas to associates who have little vision. They could talk you out of it and thereby dilute your possibilities for success. Cancer June 21-July 22. All you need is a presentation that has continuity in order to sway others to you way of thinking. Be sure to organize your thoughts before offering any suggestions to others. Leo July 23-Aug. 22. Don’t be too quick to criticize others, especially those who are doing their best working on your behalf. Instead, give them encouragement and applause for trying so hard. Virgo Aug. 23-Sept. 22.

J. ANDREW SMITH, VIA E-MAIL

Mr. Penner forgets that President Clinton left W. Bush a surplus. So it leaves one to figure that President Bush squandered the surplus, plus another $4.8 trillion, in eight years. Thank you though, Mr. Penner, for validating that President Bush bled this country dry. PETER FOGA, VIA E-MAIL

President Obama can count them out

To Larry Penner: Your accusation to Brayden Simms of refuting history is a fallacy (Simms does his homework) and hypocrisy; plus you’re ignoring history, which is just as bad. To wit: Bush started both a recession and a war, paid for neither, and handed them to Obama. Do you forget too that Obama

RE: “EQUALITY CHALLENGED AMONG PERSECUTED”: I had so

much respect for Obama, not anymore. Why didn’t he just stay neutral? I’m not prejudiced, but what happened to honor and respect for God? BELKY DIAZ, VIA E-MAIL

African-American people like myself will never support marriage equality for homosexuals because of their perverted lifestyle. How repulsive it is for a president to support gay marriage.

those that are purely speculative or sheer gambles. Scorpio Oct. 24-Nov. 22. If there’s some kind of important decision that has to be made, talk things over with your mate or someone you respect. Collective judgment is likely to hold the answer. Sagittarius Nov. 23-Dec. 21. Don’t let someone who is jealous of your achievements put a damper on them. You have every right to be proud of your accomplishments, so pound your chest all you want. Capricorn Dec. 22-Jan. 19. On the whole, this should be a very pleasant day for you. The only thing that could put a damper on things is if you go overbroad celebrating. Subdue all extravagant urges. Aquarius Jan. 20-Feb. 19. It’s a waste of time to unnecessarily worry about the end results of your efforts. Just relax, and everything should turn out the way you want it to. Pisces Feb. 20-March 20. The only thing that could stop you from getting your points across is if you doubt your ability to do so. The stronger your feelings of selfworth, the more effective you’ll be. Aries March 21-April 19. If you follow your instincts, you’ll know if something truly is a good buy. Don’t let a salesperson make the call for you. BERNICE BEDE OSOL

The original Ortlieb’s was a diverse jazz hub.

In 1987, Souders, a part-time sax musician, walked away from his job as a computer programmer and bought the dilapidated Ortlieb’s brewery bar. He promptly transformed it into something Philadelphia hadn’t seen in many years: a serious, jazz-only, music-first bar with a diverse clientele. “I was sort of disgusted by the music situation in Philly.

Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala will look to turn the tables on the Celtics in Game 4.

Looking for the payback Sixers look to put Game 3 in rearview Brand says Sixers were ‘overconfident’ prior to the blowout It only took the first 12 minutes of Game 3 for the Celtics to remember that they are, in fact, the better team in this series. Once that happened, it was all downhill for the Sixers, as evident by the C’s 107-91 stomping Wednesday night. “We all were pretty focused [Wednesday] in shootaround,” Rajon Rondo said after Game 3. “Obviously, we had two close games at home and we wanted to show these guys, send a message [Wednesday night] and I think our guys did a good job of that.” If the message was, “You can’t stop us,” then the Sixers heard it loud and clear. But it’s how Philly plays tonight — once again at home — that will determine if they have a snowball’s chance in this series.

Kevin Garnett is somehow 23 rejuvenated this postseason as he is putting up 23.7 points per game against in the series.

Down 3-1 going back to Boston? Forget about it. But going back with a 2-2 split would be just fine for a Philly team that has already proven it can win on the road in Boston during the playoffs. To win, the Sixers have to figure out a way to limit Kevin Garnett. Philadelphia successfully did that in Game 2, but KG had his way with Spencer Hawes, Elton Brand and Lavoy Allen in Game 3, dominating the second quarter and finishing with 27 points and 13 rebounds in 30 minutes. Hawes, Brand and Allen

combined for — wait for it — 11 points, and 10 rebounds in 60 minutes of playing time. That just ain’t gonna cut it fellas. But Garnett knows that a repeat effort of Game 3 will be “the biggest challenge,” and Philly will be out for blood. “[The Sixers] have a lot of young legs, have a lot of individual players that can put up buckets,” Garnett said after Game 3. “And we have to respect that and be ready for that. When you beat a team like this at home you have to expect them coming out with a lot of energy. But we’ll be ready and we’ll have a lot of energy ourselves, so we’ll see what happens.” JIMMY TOSCANO sports@metro.us

McCoy signs through 2017 Andy Reid said they were close. The coach wasn’t lying. The Eagles signed LeSean McCoy to a five-year contact extension that will keep him in South Philly through the 2017 season. The deal is worth $45 million, with $20.7 guaranteed. McCoy, 23, set franchise records in 2011 with 17 rushing touchdowns (20 overall). He also appeared in his first Pro Bowl, while finishing as the NFL’s fourth-leading rusher with 1,309 yards. He also set a team record with a 5.2-yard per carry average. “We are excited to continue this offseason of taking care of our own players,” said Reid in a statement. “LeSean is one of the most electrifying running backs in the National Football League.” For more on McCoy’s signing, go to www.metro.us/ philadelphia/sports.

Roger that: Vilma files lawsuit against Goodell Take that, commish. Jonathan Vilma is so confident that he is innocent in the Saints’ bounty scandal that is suing Roger Goodell for defamation of character. The NFL commissioner suspended Vilma for the entire season after an investigation revealed that he was the

leader of the bounty program. Vilma wrote the following on his Twitter account: “As I’ve said before .. I NEVER PAID, NOR INTENDED TO PAY ANY AMOUNT OF MONEY, TO ANY PLAYER FOR INTENTIONALLY HURTING AN OPPONENT.” Vilma’s lawsuit, filed

Thursday in New Orleans, asks for unspecified monetary damages. The linebacker’s attorney said that Goodell has “harmed Jonathan’s reputation and ability to make a living.” The Saints’ bounty program reportedly awarded between 22 and 27 players with

Papelbon to headline Red Sox-Phils rivalry Interleague play. It used to be an almost annual chance for Red Sox fans to invade Citizens Bank Park, with “Youk” chants galore. Those days are long gone. When Boston comes to town this weekend for a threegame set, the stands will be packed with Phillies fans. The ballpark has sold out 238 straight games, including the postseason. The Sox-Phillies rivalry, while tame, is usually one of the better AL-NL ones. Adding intrigue is Jonathan Papelbon. The closer swapped teams this offseason, trading in his Red Sox jersey for a Phillies one, after inking a $50 million deal. On Opening Day, Papelbon said that earning his first save in a non-Boston uniform wasn’t weird. But how about earning one against his former mates? “It won’t be weird. It might

bon’s alter ego. While the experience of pitching against the Red Sox didn’t appear to bother Papelbon, he did spew some venom at Boston’s training staff. “The previous trainer tried to tell me that he knew everything about me,” he told WEEI. “It’s just not the case. I know myself. I knew how to get through a 162-game season. A trainer doesn’t know how to do that.” METRO
