I think things are about to get a whole lot more interesting in Sinead O’Connor’s love life. After announcing that her 18-day marriage to Barry Herridge was ending because she felt like she was “living in a coffin,” the singer is tweeting a different tune. So, if I follow correctly, she and Barry are going to be boyfriend and girlfriend, go to “counsellin” and move in together in like a year. But in the meantime, they are going to stay married and f**k. This is what happens when you go to Vegas with your drug counselor to hunt for weed and end up getting “a load of crack” instead. The Frisky staff is pulling for rehab for the both of them rather than a reunion. Stay tuned. [Huffington Post]
That’s the question some may ask upon discovering that 17-year-old Dakota Fanning is on the cover of the sort of raunchy women’s magazine next to headlines like “Um, Vagina, Are You Okay Down There?” and “His Best Sex Ever.” The actress — who turns 18 next month — is introduced inside the mag with the headline, “Welcome To Your Cosmo Years, Dakota,” which I guess means she’s on the precipice of adding words like “manhood” to her everyday vernacular, using her thong as a hair tie during oral sex, and taking terrible sex advice? Ugh, growing up sucks. [NY Mag]
“I want to make our wedding just about me and her loving each other. We want to get married in front of our friends and family and keep it normal. It ain’t about selling the pictures, it ain’t about doing no prenup.”
That’s what Russell Brand had to say back in October 2010, just days before he wed Katy Perry in an extravagant ceremony in India. Now, of course, it seems like Brand lucked out, at least financially. Last Friday, the comedian filed for divorce from Katy Perry (who didn’t want to file herself and offend her extremely religious parents) and the couples’ assets are up for grabs. Brand apparently stands to make, gulp, an estimated $20 million from the pop star’s fortune because, under California law, the state’s community property clause splits money and property acquired during the union 50/50 when there isn’t a prenup. Someone should have told Katy that rich “California Girls” cover their assets before walking down the aisle. It remains to be seen, of course, how this will actually play out in court and whether Brand will actually go for “his” half of Katy’s fortune. [Hollywood Life]
