For those of you who want to yack at cutesy, faux-surprised award show acceptance speeches (still irritated over that Julia Roberts one 10 years ago), Mariah Carey
accepting the Breakthrough Actress Award at the Palm Springs Film Festival must have seemed like a breath of fresh (and probably drunk) air. First Mariah hugs her presenter for an uncomfortably long time, before making a joke about kittens/cotton. Then she says, “Please forgive me, because I’m a little bit, um …” Aww, I think this is sweet. [SF Gate

Blind Item time! This one via Blind Gossip:
This actor may be the last straight man left in Hollywood, but he does have one unusual request that makes us question his past. This one requires one man (him), two partners (in this case both women), and a room temperature traditionally-shaped bottle of Coca-Cola. When he is about to climax into one woman, the other one shakes up the bottle of Coke and shoves it up his bum. The objective is to have two explosions at once. Given his screen history, we’re guessing that this actor rather likes big explosions. And, given his bedroom history, we’re guessing that neither of these women is his wife.

“I feel like I had that [Oscar-worthy role] in ‘El Cantante,’ but I don’t even think the Academy members saw it. I feel like it’s their responsibility to do that, to see everything that’s out there, everything that could be great … Well, it is a little bit frustrating. It was funny; when the Oscars were on, I had just given birth on the 22nd, and the Oscars, I think, were a day or two later. I was sitting there with my twins — I couldn’t have been happier — but I was like, ‘How dope would it have been if I would’ve won the Oscar and been here in my hospital bed accepting the award?’ ‘Thank you so much! I just want to thank the Academy!’ But we joked about it. It’s all good.”

Matt Kemp was spotted at Rihanna‘s New Year’s Eve performance in Dubai, and then photos confirmed the couple was in Mexico together shortly after that. Matt sure is grabbing a handful of RiRi in the pic above. But who is this guy? If you’re a baseball fan, then you probably know a bit about Matt, who is the LA Dodgers’ sexiest center fielder. But for those of us who don’t count baseball as our favorite pastime, find out a few facts about the 25-year-old slugger after the jump. Keep reading »
On “Hannah Montana,” Brooke Shields plays Miley Cyrus’ dead mother, but rumor has it that off-screen she is playing the role of Miley’s high school guidance counselor. Apparently, Shields’ motherly instincts kicked in when the young starlet told her last year that she was planning to skip college. Even though toothpaste commercials don’t require knowledge of French literature, Shields explained to the Miles that she is a better person for getting her degree from Princeton. Now, the word is that Cyrus may be considering following in Shields’ footsteps and applying to some Ivy League schools in 2010. I somehow can’t see Miley Cyrus studying Proust, but I get Shields’ point. An education never hurt anyone—especially a young rock star/actress who has been known to bare her midriff and make ignorant remarks. Even though many college grads do not end up doing anything remotely related to their undergrad degrees, the experience is about personal growth … right? [Celebitchy]
But this begs the question: Do young starlets really need a college education if they’re already successful? After the jump, we compare Ivy League stars with their School of Life counterparts to see if a diploma really makes a difference. Keep reading »
Who the hell weds in suspenders? Marc Jacobs‘ new husband does! After a year-long engagement, Jacobs and his longtime boyfriend, Lorenzo Martone, tied the knot last week in a private ceremony in St. Barts. (Aha, this must be why they were snapping saucy photos there!) Besides a groom in suspenders, the schmancy fete included a flower-strewn pool, guests like Russell Simmons, and the cutest mini-me cake toppers we’ve ever seen. The “Marc” cake topper is even wearing the designer’s signature kilt! Congratulations to the happy couple—and stay tuned for copycat-suspender grooms to come. [Guest Of A Guest] Keep reading »
I never found Reggie Bush sexy … until now! I finally understand Kim Kardashian‘s attraction to Reggie, even though he usually looks too short and squat for my tastes. Thanks, Essence, for putting him on the cover of the first-ever “Black Men, Love and Relationships” issue. [Essence] Keep reading »
On Christmas night, I sauntered into the kitchen to pour myself a glass of milk when my dad turned away from the TV to tell me that Charlie Sheen had been arrested for domestic violence. A major TV star? Domestic violence on Christmas? Zut alors! Blogger Jessica sprang to action: I hit up TMZ and typed out a post as quickly as I could. This will be huge, I thought.
It was all for naught, though. The Charlie Sheen story never became a Really Big Deal like the Tiger Woods scandal did. Maybe Woods’ established good-guy reputation is more fun to rip apart and all the mistresses are dishier. Or maybe Sheen’s lawyers really were successful in their effort to keep Brooke Mueller quiet and the controversy has been muffled into submission. (Last we heard, Mueller’s lawyers said the two just had a “bad night”—um, my bad nights don’t involve death threats!) Or maybe the nation just has Charlie Sheen Is A Douche fatigue.
But I don’t: Sheen allegedly held a knife to his wife’s throat and threatened to kill her—and he’s been convicted of physically abusing a girlfriend in the past. And yet the public reaction isn’t even one-tenth as much as the Tiger Woods scandal reaction. Since when is cheating worse than beating? Keep reading »
