“Harry Potter” actress Emma Watson, 19, is on the cover of Teen Vogue‘s August issue. She looks all grown up, posing in old school Britastic clothing in the English countryside. Despite being famous since she was 10, Emma isn’t really a limelight lover. She is going to college and plans to do it up normal-person style. She’s majoring in English and will even be living with roommates. We understood why she is not all about being famous after she said so many ‘razzi showed up to her 18th birthday that she couldn’t get out the door. She added, “They laid down on the pavement and took pictures up my skirt.” Ugh, talk about barely legal. Check out some other quotes, after the jump. [Teen Vogue] Keep reading »

Taylor Momsen isn’t the only “Gossip Girl” star to be exercising her vocal chords. Leighton Meester (aka Blair Waldorf), has just made her voice known on a new track with Cobra Starfish called “Good Girls Go Bad.” Leighton only sings a few chorus lines, but she’s not bad! She’s got a bit of an engineered sound, but nevertheless, we’re all ears. Oh, and she looks gorgeous in this video. Jealous yet? ‘Cause we are. Oh, and you can forget sex videos now.

Word out of the Paris police department is ’90s supermodel Karen Mulder was arrested for “threatening to attack her plastic surgeon.” Oui, really. Apparently Karen took prank-calling to a whole new level and started making “vicious” phone calls to her doctor about, apparently, having a previous surgery reversed. (Above, Mulder last year and also in 2005.) The one time Sports Illustrated and Victoria’s Secret model is no stranger to odd, unsettling and downright dangerous (to herself) behavior — she once claimed that she had been raped by Prince Albert of Monaco, she’s suffered from chronic depression and drug addiction, and at one point attempted suicide with sleeping pills, only to be saved by friends. All very sad. Help for her, please! [Daily Mail U.K.]

According to Amazon, Kate Gosselin’s new book Love Is In The Mix: Making Meals Into Memories was supposed to be available on October 13. But now it looks like it’s going to be a little longer before anyone can snag a copy. It took seven days after Jon and Kate’s “surprise” announcement for Christian publisher Zondervan to realize that a cookbook filled with pictures of the happy family and advice on how to make lasting family memories didn’t quite fit the Gosselin’s current public image. Which is why Zondervan has pumped the brakes on the project and will work with Kate on revising the book for a later release date. To help speed up the process, here are a few pieces of Kate’s book I’d like to highlight for revision. [People] Keep reading »

Yesterday, we told you that Michael Jackson was not the biological father of his children Michael Jr. and Paris since they were sperm-donor babes. Turns out, Debbie Rowe isn’t the biological mother of the two kids she carried for the man in the mirror. All three children (including Prince Michael II) were produced via in-vitro fertilization. Debbie was the surrogate for the first two kids, and a different surrogate was used for Prince. It’s unknown whether Michael chose the egg and sperm donors. So now the custody battle over the little ones is going to get even more twisted. With the way this story is playing out, maybe Marilyn Monroe and James Dean are the biological parents?

When news of Michael Jackson’s death spread around the world on Thursday, one of the people to take the news the hardest was his ex-wife, Lisa Marie Presley. In the Daily Mail today, longtime Jackson friend and confidant, J. Randy Taraborrelli, shares some intimate details of their short-lived marriage, including some TMI about their sex life. He writes: “From my conversations with both Michael and Lisa, I am convinced this marriage was not a sham. And, according to Lisa herself, Jackson was a wonderful lover. He was, she said, ‘very hot’ in bed.” The lengthy article is worth reading in its entirety, but after the jump are some of the more interesting quotes, plus Lisa Marie’s own words from her MySpace page about her relationship with the King of Pop.
