Who Is James Middleton?

Grumpy bridesmaid Grace van Cutsem stole the show at the royal wedding. But another member of the wedding party caught our eye: 24-year-old James Middleton, Kate Middleton’s smokin’ little brother, who delivered the reading at Westminster Abbey. Now we all want to know: who is James Middleton? Is he single? Does he have a great ass like Pippa? And why is “James Middleton gay” a hot Google search term (uh oh)? Keep reading »

Rebecca Black‘s “Friday” parodies — there are many. But this Harry Potter one, called “Ravenclaws,” is delightfully fresh feeling. YouTube user Ginnyisaprincess put together this clip in a mere 11 hours. Someone’s got mad video-editing skillz, yo. [YouTube via The Mary Sue] Keep reading »

Meet The Man Who Does Lindsay Lohan In Drag

Lindsay Lohan in drag? It was bound to happen! Linday Lohan joins the esteemed, be-sequined ranks of Judy, Liza, and Barbra now that a New York-based actor, D’Arcy Drollinger, has memorialized her in a show opening this weekend in NYC, “Project: Lohan.” Rather than a formally scripted play, “Project: Lohan” is comprised of tabloid reporting and transcripts from Lindsay’s 911 calls and her mother Dina Lohan’s talk show appearances. Audio her skeezy dad Michael Lohan taped without her or Dina’s knowledge get their due, too. D’Arcy Drollinger may be a 42-year-old dude, but he gets LiLo just right with a blonde wig, a can of Red Bull at the ready, and chronic WTF-are-you-looking-at? bitchface. Drollinger picked up Long Island’s greatest as his muse after seeing her on the cover of Vanity Fair awhile ago, telling The New York Daily News “it was so painfully clear that this was a sort of Shakespearean drama or Greek tragedy that was being played out.” Indeed it is, pal. Indeed it is. As one of those celebrity gawkers who can’t look away from the trainwreck that is Lohan, I may just have to go see “Project: Lohan” myself. [New York Daily News] Keep reading »

Beyoncé Gets Down For Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” Campaign

Beyoncé‘s getting down in the cafeteria! B filmed this adorable “Move Your Body” music video for Michelle Obama‘s “Let’s Move!” campaign. I don’t think most principals would be thrilled if kids were doing these moves while they wait in line for tater tots, but at least it’s exercise, right? All these kids look totally thrilled be bustin’ a move alongside a superstar and she’s so funny in her bright green kneesocks! [Celebuzz] Keep reading »

Quickies: Emma Watson Calls Brown Bullying BS & Zooey Deschanel Knocks Off The Frisky!

  • Emma Watson posted a message to the media and her fans on her personal web site to say rumors she is leaving Brown because she was cruelly teased by students is untrue. “I have never been bullied in my life and certainly never at Brown. This ’10 points to Gryffindor’ incident [a "Harry Potter" reference that kids supposedly said when Emma answered a question correctly] never even happened,” Emma wrote. “I feel the need to say this because accusing Brown students of something as serious as bullying and this causing me to leave seems beyond unfair.” Emma said she’s not sure if she’ll be turning to Brown in the fall because she hasn’t decided yet and requested people stop speculating.

Oklahoma Rep. Sally Kern: “Women Don’t Want To Work As Hard As A Man”

“Women usually don’t want to work as hard as a man. Women tend to think a little bit more about their family, wanting to be at home more time, wanting to have a little more leisure time. I’m not saying women don’t work hard. Women like … to have a moderate work life with plenty of time for spouse and children and other things like that. They work very hard, but sometimes they aren’t willing to commit their whole life to their job like a lot of men do.”

Wow. These are the comments made by Oklahoma State Rep. Sally Kern during a debate on affirmative action. I would love for Kern to have the ovaries to say this in the face of a single mom who is working three jobs to keep herself and her kids housed, clothed and fed.

Oh, but wait! There’s more! Rep. Kern also had the racist idiocy to explain why black people deserve be on unequal footing in society, too. Keep reading »

Celebs Who Endorse Donald Trump For President — And The Ones Who Don’t

If Donald Trump seriously runs for president (which I don’t think will happen, but still) and gets so much as one single vote in the primaries, I am moving to Canada. No ifs, ands or buts about it. The man who popularized frou-frou pompadours on men, trashy divorces, and the phrase “You’re fired!” is like a one-man encyclopedia entry for the phrase “ugly American.”

Whaddya know, a lot of celebs agree with me: Susan Sarandon, Cher, Tracy Morgan. And then there are the yokels who would actually “Vote Trump!” And there’s quite a few of them… Keep reading »
