“Look at me. Tell me—where am I fat? It isn’t even about me, it’s about the message it sends to normal girls. Some girl in Middle America is gonna pick up [a tabloid] and say, ‘Oh Michelle is my favorite actress and they think she’s fat. What does that say about me?’”
—Michelle Trachtenberg defends her bodacious body. We are with her 100 percent but, uh, who says that she’s fat? Never heard it. And no offense, I really like Michelle, but I’m just not sure how many people put her in their “favorite actress” slot. [Hollywood Life] Keep reading »
On Monday, Al Gore was cleared of sexual harassment charges. Massage therapist Molly Hagerty claimed that the almost-prez was “a crazed sex poodle” who made “unwanted sexual contact” with her in an upscale Portland hotel room in 2006. But after Hagerty failed a lie detector test and forensic evidence turned up, well, nothing, the judge let Gore off the hook.
Although this is pretty embarrassing, Gore is actually (sort of) in good company. After the jump, check out a few more celebs who were accused and cleared of sexual harassment. Congrats, fellas. Keep reading »
“For me, love is the never-ending question. It’s confusing. It’s the answer, but it’s also inundated with contradictions and complications. It’s about years of experience in different relationships, and kind of the culmination of that, and how even to this day, I’m still learning.”

“I have a curvy body. I have boobs. I’m a size 4. In modeling, that’s often too big.”

Sometimes, the world just makes perfect sense. Nordstrom is having a sale, Ali picked Roberto on “The Bachelorette,” and some actors are meant to play animated Disney characters. PasteMagazine.com hit these doppelgangers on the head. Angelina Jolie is Vanessa from “The Little Mermaid,” the human temptress that was in actuality evil Ursula; Seth Rogen‘s goofiness makes him the perfect Baloo the Bear from “The Jungle Book”; and RuPaul and the Sea Witch clearly share a hair stylist. We know that some celebrities look like animals, but these fictional character resemblances are just uncanny. How did we never see this before? Check out all the comparisons at Paste Magazine.

Here are the first promotional pics for Lindsay Lohan‘s upcoming movie “Inferno,” where she plays ’70s “Deep Throat” porn star Linda Lovelace. For a role that Lilo is promising to go full frontal for, that is a pretty conservative bra and panty set. It also looks like Lindsay has pulled a Kristen Stewart in “The Runaways” by donning some unfortunate retro hair to capture the character. Check out another skivvies-only shot of your new favorite ex jailbird after the jump. Keep reading »
Paris Hilton. John Edwards. Rielle Hunter. Tila Tequila. Chelsea Handler. Erin Andrews. Ashley Greene. Kid Rock. Scott Stapp. Kendra Wilkinson. Ke$ha. Snooki. JWoww. Cassie. Ex-Miss California Carrie Prejean. Ex-Miss USA Tara Connor. If you go searching on the internet, you can see any of these people naked, half-naked, covered in semen (allegedly!), or engaging in sex acts, or you can read about the sex acts they’ve performed in great detail. I’ve written about several of these “scandals” myself — oftentimes downright gleefully. Sometimes it’s just fun, as a writer, to get to say a celeb is covered in “masculine essence” or “ambrosia of man.” Other times there’s a delicious schadenfreude when some moralizing twit like Carrie Prejean falls off her high horse.
But I also know I’m guilty of taking it for granted that sex tapes and nude pics are so common that we just assume it’s our God-given right to see them.

“Speaking in tongues is as normal to me as ‘Pass the salt.’ It’s a secret, direct prayer language to God. A lot of religions use meditation or chanting. My dad speaks in tongues and my mom interprets it. That’s their gift … I wasn’t ever able to say I was ‘lucky’ because my mother would rather us say that we were blessed, and she also didn’t like that ‘lucky’ sounded like ‘Lucifer.’ Deviled eggs were called ‘angeled’ eggs. I wasn’t allowed to eat Lucky Charms, but I think that was the sugar. I think my mom lied to me about that one.”
—Katy Perry opens up about her, err, interesting childhood with “freelance minister” parents in Rolling Stone. Wow. Just wow. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »
