Rising oil price gives Russian rouble a lift – business live

Grimes admits lifting moniker from grime genre option on MySpace

Artist was ‘originally too embarassed of this story’ so told journalists she was named after Simpsons character Frank Grimes and other stories

Grimes has revealed that she named herself after British grime music. The Canadian electronic musician said that she started calling herself “Grimes” before she even knew what grime music sounded like.

The artist, whose real name is Claire Boucher, decided on the moniker for her solo musical project when she created her first MySpace page. “On myspace ur genre could be grime and u could have 3 genres so i was plural grime, b4 knowing what grime was,” she tweeted on Friday. “i was originally too embarassed of this story so i told journalists i was named after frank grimes ...

Bad boys: the secret world of the pantomime villain

With panto season in full swing, three theatre baddies – including Nigel Havers, currently playing King Rat in Dick Whittington – open up about ‘the biggest ego-trip there is’

“Every actor secretly wants to play the baddie,” says Nigel Havers. “And do you know why? Because it’s easy. It’s so much harder finding reasons to make people like you.”

Havers has constructed a career around playing cads and bounders, so it was perhaps inevitable that he would thrive in pantomime. He cites his portrayal of Lewis Archer, the charming conman who seduced both mother and daughter in Coronation Street, as one of his proudest achievements. So how did he make the transition from love rat in Corrie to King Rat in Swindon?

I can’t maintain an erection with my new boyfriend

I’ve been engaging in random sex with people I don’t know. Now I’ve met this guy and we’ve decided we quite like each other. But sex has become impossible

I’ve been engaging in random sex with people I don’t really know for about six months. Recently I met someone on one of these casual encounters and we both decided that we quite liked each other. But now that he’s my boyfriend, I find myself unable to maintain an erection. Foreplay is great but as soon as we get to sex I lose my erection. He’s the first person to ever mean something to me.

It is possible that you have a sexual problem with either desire or arousal, or even depression, and that you have been unconsciously trying to correct this via the eroticism of random sex. But it is more likely that intimacy – getting psychologically and physically close to someone at the same time – is a struggle for you. This may be why you have previously chosen not to have a boyfriend.

Turkey soup: what goes in yours?

A soup made from Christmas leftovers can be simple, or spicy, or creamy; light or bulked out with grains, noodles or potatoes; made meatier with ham or more virtuous with sprouts … Share your favourite recipe

I sometimes wonder what the best part of roasting a chicken is: the Sunday lunch, or the fragrant, warming soup later in the week. I have no such issues when it comes to turkey. Family tradition dictates that we have turkey rather than goose at Christmas, but even as it arrives at the festive table, burnished and steaming, I’m thinking more fondly of the broth that will follow than the bird currently being carved. So fondly that on short Christmas visits, I have been known to swipe the carcass and take it home with me.

I had my favourite turkey soup, the one I’m always trying to replicate, in a small cafe in Montpelier, Bristol. The broth was tasty and well seasoned, dotted with shreds of pale turkey, pink cubes of ham, vibrant orange discs of carrot and translucent leeks in pale green rounds. Nearly 15 years later, I can still taste its clean, simple flavours.

North Korea claims 'clear evidence' US administration 'deeply involved' in making The Interview

  • Country says it has evidence The Interview was made by the US government and threatens entire country in retaliation for any ‘proportional response’

  • Cinema chains hit back at Sony, saying they wanted release delayed not cancelled

  • Republican National Committee urges cinemas to screen The Interview and party supporters to buy tickets

  • Mike Myers’s Dr Evil comments on Saturday Night Live

The North Korean government has claimed that the US government was behind production of The Interview, the comedy film which lampoons its leader, Kim Jong-un. In a statement on Sunday carried by the official Korean Central News Agency, the National Defence Commission – the country’s military body – declared that it had “clear evidence that the US administration was deeply involved in the making of such dishonest reactionary movie”. The commission added that it had “already launched the toughest counteraction. Our target is all the citadels of the US imperialists who earned the bitterest grudge of all Koreans. Whoever challenges justice by toeing the line of the biggest criminal US will never be able to escape merciless punishment.”

On Friday, President Obama said that the US would “respond proportionately” to the cyber attack on Sony Pictures, following the FBI’s confirmation that the North Korean government had ordered the attack, angered by the film. North Korea has now threatened to attack “the White House, the Pentagon and the whole US mainland, the cesspool of terrorism” should such action occur. Though the country again denied it was involved in the attack, it did say it “highly esteems the righteous action” taken by the Guardians of Peace, the group claiming responsibility.

Russell Crowe: even at my most successful, I just wanted to be home

The road to Oscar-winning stardom has been a long, slow slog for the antipodean actor. If his directorial debut, The Water Diviner, proves a commercial success, Crowe hopes it will deliver him his ultimate career goal – to be back in Australia

The Water Diviner review: a handsome crowd-pleaser

Russell Crowe, like a lot of us, is sick of commuting. “I commute to work and it is a long commute and sometimes it can be really tedious,” says the 50-year-old. “As the years go by, it is more and more of a problem for me – it doesn’t feel natural for me to get on a plane anymore.” Which explains, in part, why we are here, at the end of 2014, talking about his directorial debut.

The Water Diviner stars Crowe as Joshua Connor, an Australian farmer whose three sons have been killed at Gallipoli. Connor’s wife, unhinged by the loss, blames him for not protecting them – for letting them go. When she dies, he promises her that he will bring them home.
