It’s quite obvious Lindsay Lohan thinks of herself as the second coming of Marilyn Monroe. Lindz has donned Marilyn-inspired looks for not one, but two expensive photo shoots. She even has a quote from “Some Like It Hot” tattooed on her wrist. Now she wants to take her obsession to the next level by playing Sugar Kane Kowalczyk in “Some Like It Hot,” a role Marilyn made famous. Director Brett Ratner, however, isn’t having any of that.

Bad pose, gaping mouth, ugly shoes, and Tyra isn’t even “smiling with her eyes.” At least I don’t think she is, but I’ve always been confused by that “skill.” [NYC, 7/30/09] Keep reading »
And the winner is … Samantha Burke! The media didn’t really see this coming yesterday. When it was announced that Jude Law had fathered a fourth child and the mother was seven-months pregnant, everyone backtracked to last December when Law was filming “Sherlock Holmes” opposite Rachel McAdams. Reportedly, McAdam’s sister, Kayleen is pregnant and the puzzle pieces seemed to fit together perfectly. Makeup artist Kayleen wasn’t working on the “Sherlock Holmes” set, but was supposedly introduced to Jude and the two allegedly hooked up. But alas she is no longer in the running to be his next baby mama.
So who is this woman who’s carrying the next Spawn of Jude Law? Keep reading »
Geez, is Eminem still thinking about that time back in freaking 2001 when he “dated” Mariah Carey? Here’s the short version of the story: After this hookup heard round the world, Eminem dedicated his song “Puke” to Mariah in 2005. Nick Cannon, Mariah’s husband, wrote on his website, “I’m going to make you wish you never spoke my name and regret the ungodly things you said about my wife.” Then Mariah shot back in her video for “Obsession” in May, where a faux Eminem in a hoodie stalks her. Now Eminem has taken this feud to a whole new level with “The Warning.” Take a listen above. (Headphones on, as it’s likely NSFW.) Here’s a sampling of the ultra-classy lyrics:
“Mariah, it ever occur to you that I still have pictures? However you prefer to do and goes for you too, Nick, f*ggot/ You think I’m scared of you? You gonna ruin my career you better get one/ Like I’ma sit and fight with you over some slut bitch c**t who made me put up with her psycho ass over 6 months and only spread her legs to let me hit once.”
Gross, Eminem. Gross. How is this beef still going on? All this happened over eight years ago. Is this really the only way these two can generate press? Keep reading »
Seth Rogen: “['The Ugly Truth'] looks like it really puts women on a pedestal in a beautiful way.”
Judd Apatow: “I hear there’s a scene where she’s wearing… underwear… with a vibrator in it, so I’d have to see if that was uplifting for women.”
Rogen: “I gotta say, it’s not like we’re the only people she said some bats**t crazy things about. That’s kind of her bag now.”
–The star and director of “Funny People” on Katherine Heigl‘s hypocrisy in an interview with Howard Stern. Heigl famously told Vanity Fair that she thought “Knocked Up” (the Apatow film that she starred in alongside Rogen) “painted women as shrews.” Keep reading »
George Clooney usually has a thing for cocktail waitresses (like his ex, Sarah Larson), but his new girlfriend is someone he can actually discuss his “craft” with. Clooney met Italian actress Elisabetta Canalis when he was in Rome and he immediately began wooing her, taking her on romantic jaunts to his villa on Lake Como. So far, we think Canalis is rad. According to The Sun, Canalis once portrayed a nun who bared her breasts in the film “Virgin Territory.” Lest you think she is a one-trick pony, she also had a role in “Deuce Bigalow: European Gigolo,” and currently hosts the Italian version of MTV’s “Total Request Live.” Will this Italian beauty be the one to nab Clooney’s fickle heart?

And on the seventh day, they created Shiantology. That’s right, a group of fans has founded a religion based on Shia LaBeouf. Their mission statement says:
“Characterized by a belief in the power of Shia’s spirit to clear itself of past painful experiences (in particular, hand smashing, car crashes, and drunken outbursts in Walgreens) through self-knowledge, spiritual fulfillment and copious amounts of Arizona Ice Tea. Shiantology places an emphasis upon Shia’s immortal spirit, Shiacarnation, an extrascientific method of pshiachotherapy (Shianetics), and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, daily SHIA WALKING POSTS.”
And if that weren’t amazing enough, check out their Shiart collection of Shia’s mug in place of religious icons. [Shiantology]
Amazing. This has inspired us to come up with some new celebrity-based religions. Keep reading »
We’re sick and tired of the “Is Judd Apatow A Sexist Pig Because His Main Characters Are Loser Guys Who Date Women Who Are Too Good For Them?” debate.
No, he’s not. True, Katherine Heigl said “Knocked Up” was “a little sexist.” But that woman complains about everything.
Nevertheless, whether or not Apatow’s a sexist pig has taken on a life of its own and become something he has to answer for. Earlier this week at a screening of his latest film, “Funny People,” Apatow told an audience:
“I think, really, what a lot of these issues are is that women are romanticized in movies. [My] movies go pretty hard at having women have as many problems as men. They make mistakes that are as big as men’s. So when someone says ‘Knocked Up’ seems sexist, I’m like, ‘Really?’ I mean, Seth [Rogen] has an earthquake, and he grabs his bong before his pregnant girlfriend. That’s pretty bad. But I try to weigh it evenly so it’s not really about men or women; it’s just about miscommunications and us at our worst.”
