The National Enquirer would like us to believe that Brad Pitt snubbed out his younger brother Doug Pitt’s political career by urging him not to run for Missouri Congress, even though he probably would have won the election. Apparently, Brad and Doug work on community charity projects together and if his Republican brother took a seat, their efforts would not only reek of “political cronyism,” and Brad would lose his most trusted confidant. Plus, he was hoping to use Doug’s business smarts in his film production company?
Blah, blah, blah. The important thing is—Brad Pitt has a brother! Why weren’t we already stalking him?! Check him out in the clip above—it’s not particularly exciting, but hey, it’s all we could find. Sure, he’s a Republican, but they can be hot, too. He looks more like Zach Braff than Brad, but he’s got Pitt genes buried deep inside him and we must get them out and make clones. Baby Pitts for everyone! [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Summer lovin’ is in the air, which means you’re probably wearing sundresses and snogging in parks and sharing Dippin’ Dots while the sun beats down on your tan shoulders. Or, if you’re anything like me, you’re accidentally making s’mores every night and avoiding dates because you “have to wash your hair.” This is why movie theaters are awesome—you can eat in the dark and no one cares if you’re dressed like a homeless person. Go see “My Sister’s Keeper,” “Cheri,” “The Hurt Locker,” and if there’s time or you’re trying to bag a nerd who’s into loud noises, “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen.” Keep reading »
Congratulations may be in order! Heidi Fleiss, best known as the country’s most infamous madam, is reportedly going to marry Dennis Hof, who owns Nevada’s Moonlite Bunny Ranch. The Bunny Ranch is the world’s most well known brothel, and, in her heyday, Fleiss was considered one of the sex trade’s most brilliant businesswomen. If this is true, it’ll be one sexy merger.

Finally, an advertisement that doesn’t offend us! Amnesty International has installed a new anti-domestic-abuse ad at a bus stop in Hamburg, Germany that uses cutting edge technology to make its point. A small camera embedded in the ad makes it so the couple in the poster appears happy and smiling when someone is looking at it; when the viewer turns away, the image changes to one where the man is beating the woman. The text reads, “It happens when nobody is watching.” The camera responds after only a brief delay — like if someone looks away quickly — so that observers are able to catch the two different images and understand what’s going on and the message it’s conveying. Powerful, and smart, stuff. Click here to see a larger image of the ad. [Gizmodo] Keep reading »
In the last 24 hours I’ve been shocked by how, well, overwhelmingly glowing and one-sided the rememberances of MJ have been by celebrities, the media, and the public in general. Is reflecting on the undeniable strangeness — to some, grotesqueness — of Michael Jackson suddenly off-limits because he’s dead? Keep reading »
Perez Hilton is not having a great week. He gets punched by the Black Eyed Peas tour manager, whines about it, is laughed at by, oh, just about everyone but Heidi Montag and Spencer Pratt, gets called out by GLAAD for calling Will.i.am a “f*ggot,” and is generally told to shut his pie hole by nearly the entire blogosphere. And then yesterday, when rumors began to swirl that Michael Jackson was hospitalized after experiencing cardiac arrest, he posted the photo above on his blog, with the following text:
We knew something like this would happen!! Michael Jackson was taken by ambulance from his Holmby Hills home to a nearby Los Angeles hospital on Thursday afternoon!! Supposedly, the singer went into cardiac arrest and the paramedics had to administer CPR!!! His mother is even on the way to visit him!!!
We are dubious!! Jacko pulled a similar stunt when he was getting ready for his big HBO special in ‘95 when he “collapsed” at rehearsal! He was dragging his heels on that just like his upcoming 50 date London residency at the 02 Arena, of which he already postponed the first few dates!!! Either he’s lying or making himself sick, but we’re curious to see if he’s able to go on!!! Get your money back, ticket holders!!!!
Once it was revealed that Jackson was indeed sick — and then had died — Perez took the photo down and deleted all but the first three sentences, as if his “dubious” feelings had never existed. But the internet doesn’t forget! Keep reading »
