What’s On 17-Year-Old Amy Winehouse’s To-Do List?

Seventeen-year-old Amy Winehouse‘s journal entries and song lyrics have been discovered in a pile of dumped school books. Winehouse apparently scribbled verses inside a red notebook for English Literature (she wrote “Amy’s Songs” on the cover). Some of her early lyrics from 2001 found in the notebook include: “I’m digging myself into a hole/These days I’ll just work when once I had so much soul” and the somewhat prophetic “Drain my drink & order more” and “Find someone with whom I can come undone.” She also writes about “crazy sexual tension” with a boy she knows and plans to wear “that little skirt” and “little white heels” just to tease him.

But most interestingly, Amy Winehouse penned a to-do list of stuff she’d like to accomplish once she got a record contract. And no, “become a sloppy mess drug addict and have a crazy relationship with a criminal” is not on there. Keep reading »

Tonight: MTV To Air An Abortion Special “No Easy Decision”

Tonight at 11:30 EST, MTV will air the special “No Easy Decision,” in which teen mom Markai Durham of “16 & Pregnant” has an abortion. As first reported by Crushable, Markai got pregnant by her boyfriend James shortly after giving birth to baby Za’karia and decided to end the pregnancy. Two other young women who chose to have abortions will be depicted in “No Easy Decision” as well. According to Jennifer Armstrong at Entertainment Weekly, who exclusively viewed the special, “While pro-life critics will likely find fault with the show just for existing, no one can accuse the documentarians of making abortion look easy or fun.” Keep reading »

Dina Lohan Threatens To Sue Over Alleged Lindsay Lohan Biopic, “Dogs In Pocketbooks”

Another day, another legal battle for the Lohans. The awesomely-named “Dogs in Pocketbooks,” a potential movie based on Lindsay Lohan‘s trainwreck life, has gotten mama bear Dina Lohan dialing up the lawyers. Socialite and heiress Lydia Hearst is rumored to be playing the starlet based on LiLo, alongside Joan Collins as a high-powered agent, in this “spoof” on the “obsession with modern celebrity.”

“Lydia will play a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media — a role obviously based on Lindsay Lohan,” screenwriter Charles Casillo told the New York Post. Keep reading »

Sweet Talkin’ Ken Is Barbie’s Bitch

At last, a man who says everything you want him to say! Meet Mattel’s Sweet Talkin’ Ken doll ($31), who records five seconds of your voice and plays it back in a deep baritone. Barbie and her boy toy split ages ago, but I’m sure they’ll get back together as soon as Barbie realizes she can totally make Sweet Talkin’ Ken her bitch. Repeat after me, Sweet Talkin’ Ken: “You look like you need a foot massage!”; “Don’t worry, I’ll take the garbage out”; “Sure, I’ll go down on you while you watch ‘Real Housewives!” Sigh. If only we could program men in real life this way. [Mattel via Outblush] Keep reading »

Hugh Hefner’s Fianceé Crystal Harris Is Not After His Money


Well I’ll be: Hugh Hefner is engaged and his fianceé, Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris, seems sweet and down-to-earth. The 24-year-old spoke with that venerable news institution, News of the World, last May and addressed the question we’ve all been wondering: how wrinkly is an 84-year-old’s ball sack? No! Ew! That was not what we were wondering! What we were wondering … is she with Hef for his money? And the answer is … no. They just have, like, this really strong connection, you guys.

Elton John is father to a new baby boy! The “Rocket Man” singer became father of his own little “Tiny Dancer” on December 25, with his husband David Furnish.

Damn, Zachary is going to inherit some kick-ass costumes. Congratulations to both the fathers! [US Weekly] Keep reading »

Bristol Palin Buys A House In Arizona

Warning! Warning! Bristol Palin is encroaching on the continental United States. Alaska’s most famous single mom recently paid $172,000 for a five-bedroom house in Maricopa, Arizona, which is 30 miles from Phoenix. The house was foreclosed last January, flipped by a real estate developer and sold to Mama Grizzly’s cub one month ago. TMZ speculates Bristol may be attending Arizona State University to study broadcast journalism, possibly at the Walter Cronkite School of Journalism and Mass Communication. Did she use one of her “Dancing With The Stars” clips for entrance? Or submit one of her many Facebook rants as an entrance essay? Sigh. The only thing more depressing than the fact that 20-year-old Bristol Palin paid for a $172,000 house in cash is the fact the teen mom likely paid for it with money earned lecturing others about abstinence.

Hugh Hefner Engaged To His 24-Year-Old Girlfriend, Crystal Harris

Twenty-four-year old Playboy Playmate Crystal Harris is going to make an honest man out of Hugh Hefner: Hef proposed to the December 2009 pin-up and “Girls Next Door” star on Christmas Eve. Because he’s a modern man despite his 84 years of age, Hef tweeted the proposal immediately after it happened. “After the movie tonight, Crystal & I exchanged gifts. I gave Crystal a ring. A truly memorable Christmas Eve,” he tweeted. Hef later clarified, “Yes, the ring I gave Crystal is an engagement ring. I didn’t mean to make a mystery out of it. A very merry Christmas to all.”

Blonde (duh) Crystal Harris will be Hef’s third wife: he divorced his first wife, Mildred Williams, in 1959 and his second wife, Kimberly Conrad, in 2009. While it may seem at face value that marrying a woman 60 years your junior is icky, do not misunderstand their deep and serious bond: according to her Twitter bio, she’s not just a Playmate and “Hef’s girl” but an “entrepreneur.” So what’s Crystal working on?
