I’ve never been jealous of a corgi before, but these little guys, decked out in special patriotic finery, might be the exception. You see, they met and even were pet by the black-gloved hand of Queen Elizabeth II, during her visit to Sherborne Abbey in the Southwest of England as a part of their Jubilee tour of the country. It’s a dog’s life.
I, along with the rest of the world, am under the clear impression that J. Lo can (and will) make anything work … except, maybe, for this crystal snake-embellished number. This is a dress that’s so striking on the runway and editorially, but de facto it is all kinds of crazy. Like, 24 different kinds of crazy — one for every year Casper Smart has been alive, natch.
Can you believe Kirsten Dunst turns 30 today? The actress has grown up in front of the cameras, getting her first big break in 1994 as the eternally young ”Claudia” opposite Tom Cruise and Brad Pitt in ”Interview with a Vampire” when she was only 12 years old.
Since then she’s done killer comedies like ”Drop Dead Gorgeous” and ”Bring It On” and more serious fare like ”The Virgin Suicides,” ”Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind” and most recently ”Melancholia.” She also had her biggest role to date playing Mary Jane Watson in Sam Raimi’s ”Spider-Man”movies.
While Claudia was doomed to be a child forever, Dunst has drastically changed through the years — see what she and her co-stars all look like today in this gallery!
Courtney Love is getting creative, and this time it has nothing to do with naked Twit pics or making accusations that Dave Grohl hit on her daughter. She’s an artist now! Actually, according to Love, she’s always been an artist. Apparently, she studied at the San Francisco Art Institute in the ’80s. Who knew? Anyhow, her first gallery show “And She’s Not Even Pretty” is set to open this week at Fred Torres Collaborations in New York. The show will feature more than 45 of Love’s drawings, many of them with accompanying bits of her poetry and song lyrics. One of the more explicit pieces, “Keep It Up, Mother,” shows a woman on a crucifix with blood running down her naked body. The poetry reads: “How you must have suffered getting accustomed to ME. My savage solitary soul — my NAME that sends them all running …”
Uh oh. Someone is doing deep exploration of her “mothering issues.” AND we can’t wait to see the bloody display. Courtney isn’t the only famous person who has tried her hand at a different creative medium. Plenty of celebs have picked up the palette.

Charlie Sheen Problems: the actor is pissy that a stripper joint called Cheetahs bequeathed his name upon their VIP room, in which guests can eat sushi off nearly-naked women for $250 a pop. An outraged Sheen has threatened to sue the New York City “gentleman’s club” for — get this — damaging his reputation by bedecking the VIP room with grinning pictures of his face. Although the Charlie Sheen room has been party central for a year, Sheen’s lawyers just recently fired off a cease-and-desist letter claiming they used his name without his permission. The club’s owners relented, but not without rolling their eyes. Asked the owner, “How could sushi damage Charlie Sheen’s reputation?” Truer words have never been spoken. [NY Post]
Congratulations to Jessica Simpson and Eric Johnson, who welcomed baby girl Maxwell Drew into the world today! Congratulations are also (begrudgingly) due to Julie Gerstein, who bet me $10 that the baby would be under 10 pounds. I was so sure, given how, um, big Jessica was during her epically long pregnancy, that her baby would be at least 10 lbs, but Maxwell weighed in at 9 pounds 13 ounces. So close! Damn you, Julie Gerstein! Anyway, seriously, congrats to Jessica and Eric on lil’ Maxwell. I bet she’s a cutie. [Us Weekly]
