Quick Pic: Sensory Overload!

Fergie and the Black Eyed Peas performed on “The Today Show” this morning. While we enjoy some of their singles, we’re glad we weren’t at the concert because music really would have sent our senses into overdrive. What’s up with the optical torture dancers and Fergie’s armor on her arm, around her torso, and fingernails? [NYC, 6/12/09] Keep reading »

Holy Hell: Heidi Montag Will Appear In Playboy

Whether she’s marrying the despicable Spencer Pratt on “The Hills,” crying in the middle of the Costa Rican rainforest on “I’m a Celebrity … Get Me Out of Here” or, you know, just existing, Heidi Montag sure knows how to get attention. In her next endeavor, she’ll be appearing in the September issue of Playboy. Like every other description of a spread in Playboy, a source told People that the photos are nude, but “tasteful.” In all honesty, if the photos appear to be anywhere near as awkward as her video for “Higher,” the alleged half million dollars Playboy is spending on this shoot will be totally worth it. Also, is this what Heidi meant when she said she wanted to be the next Mother Teresa? [People] Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Madonna Always Gets What She Wants

  • Madonna can officially snatch, er, adopt Malawian baby Mercy. Oh and guess what? Madonna isn’t even flying there herself to pick her up. [Dlisted] — With all the real orphans, and by that I mean orphans whose parents are dead, why didn’t Madonna adopt one of them? I’m so over the adopted baby accessory.
  • Kendra Wilkinson says if the baby is a boy he will be named after his father, but if it’s a girl, they still haven’t decided between Arianna and Kianna. [Perez Hilton] — How boring! Or am I getting used to off the wall Hollywood baby names?

Celebrity Casting Couch: Who Will Play Jeff Buckley? And Who Will Be Lara Croft?

It would be more fun if celebrities had to fight to the death for roles. Or maybe casting directors could make them compete in elaborate ropes courses? This week, some very talented celebrities are up for the same roles. James Franco and Robert Pattinson are neck-and-neck for the honor of playing musician Jeff Buckley in a biopic. Meanwhile, producer Dan Lin has announced his plan for another installment of “Tomb Raider.” But could Angelina be out in favor of Megan Fox? After the jump, how we think it will shake out.

Quick Pic: Bella’s Not Lookin’ So Beautiful

That’s because Kristen Stewart has ditched the pretty long locks for an ’80s shag — she’s playing Joan Jett in “The Runaways” biopic. [Los Angeles, CA, 6/11/09] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Paris Hilton Lets A Spotted Nicky Out Of Her Cage

Nicky Hilton hardly ever crosses our minds, but when she makes an appearance via a paparazzo’s camera, we start thinking about what she’s been up to lately. It seems Paris, who recently dumped Doug Reinhardt, now has time to get the paps to pay attention to Nicky. [Hollywood, 6/11/09] Keep reading »

Quick Pic: Would You Wear A Cardigan As A Dress?

Rihanna went out last night wearing a long cardigan as a dress. We can’t decide whether this is a good idea. Sweaters aren’t normally long enough to cover our butts, but maybe in the winter, when tights can provide extra coverage. [NYC, 6/10/09] Keep reading »

Star Couplings: Rihanna Will Testify Against Chris Brown

  • Rihanna has been subpoenaed to testify against Chris Brown, who is answering felony assault charges, in a preliminary hearing scheduled for June 22. [Us Magazine]
  • Monica Seles is reportedly seeing billionaire Thomas Golisano, a man twice her age. [Perez Hilton] — I’m not a big fan of the Republican coup Golisano’s orchestrated in the New York State legislature, so now I dislike Monica by association.
  • Kendra Wilkinson says her baby is due Christmas day. [People] — Kendra and Hank were really busy in March, huh?

Reason #4567 To Hate GOOP

I usually find the “MAKE” editions of GOOP, Gwyneth Paltrow’s newsletter that attempts to “nourish the inner aspect,” the most tolerable. They’re recipes and how offensive and annoying can food really be? This week, Gwyneth introduces us to the cookie and treat recipes from some of her friends, including Evi, a Holocaust survivor, and Katie Lee Joel. Of the latter, Gwyneth writes:

“The summer before last, a mutual friend brought the lovely Katie Lee Joel and her husband William over for dinner. Much to my delight, she brought a fresh batch of these cookies with her.”

Wait. Hold up. “Her husband William?” Don’t you mean Billy? As in, BILLY JOEL? Is this Gwyneth’s attempt at not namedropping? Because that would be effing stupid, considering GOOP is one big celebrity snog fest. Seriously, what a pretentious twat.

Oh also, big old error in the last bit of this week’s newsletter. See above — guess someone forget to include the copy for next week’s preview, and Gwyneth, ever the diligent editor, didn’t notice it was missing either. Oopsies! What will William and his lovely wife Katherine say? [GOOP] Keep reading »
