Madonna’s Publicist Defends Her Loathing Of Hydrangeas; Says It’s Not As Bad As Hating Puppies

“She’s entitled to like any flower she wants and she didn’t want to hurt the feeling of the hydrangeas of the world. No disrespect to the hydrangeas lovers of the world but she prefers different types of flowers … It’s not like she said she hated warm chocolate chip cookies and milk and little puppies!”

Madonna‘s publicist, Liz Rosenberg, defends the Material Girl in the Hydrangea Incident of 2011. Earlier this week, after a fan gifted her with a bouquet of hydrangeas, Madonna cooed, “I loaaaaaaathe hydrangeas.” Rosenberg says this is her prerogative. Though wait, does Madonna really hate puppies? Kidding. [Celebitchy] Keep reading »

Kate Winslet Would Be Fine If Her Son Was Gay

“I like being in the city. I like the diversity that my children are exposed to every day. I love the way their brains work. [My son] Joe turns to me the other day and says ‘One day I will have a girlfriend or a boyfriend, darling. Which would you prefer?’ And I said ‘My love, that would be entirely up to you, and it doesn’t make any difference to me.’ But that he knows! It’s a real privilege. Talk about the best education.”

Kate Winslet tells V magazine she wouldn’t care at all if her son was gay. What an awesome mama. Also, I love how her son calls her “darling”! [PopSugar] Keep reading »

Celine Dion’s Burglar Draws Bath, Eats Food From Her Fridge

I’m pretty fascinated by the tale of the 36-year-old man who broke into Celine Dion‘s house in Montreal. The dude apparently got in the house by jumping a fence, opening an unlocked car door, and rummaging for a garage door opener. (Note to Celine: Always lock your car doors, lady. Seriously.) Interestingly, this guy didn’t break in to steal anything. No, it seems more like he felt like he belonged there. “He opened the water faucets, was pouring a nice warmish bath. He even managed to eat some pastry that was in the fridge,” a police spokesman said. He even seemed genuinely surprised when police officers arrived on the scene. “The suspect was coming down the big staircase and was asking: ‘Hey, guys what are you doing here?’”

This reminds me a lot of the infamous Brad Pitt stalker. Keep reading »

Ryan Gosling Is Embarrassed By His Act Of Heroism

Remember when Ryan Gosling heroically stopped a street fight over a painting and it was caught on video and I swooned for a solid 30 minutes? Well, it turns out America’s Sexiest Superhero is, in fact, embarrassed by this incident making headlines. He gave MTV the details on what happened, saying that apparently the guy stole the painting because he had long admired the artist’s work. “Which means the guy was a fan, and so he wanted the painting so bad he had to steal it because he couldn’t afford it. So he finally steals the painting and he’s getting his ass kicked by his hero, and then the guy from The Notebook shows up and makes it weirder. The whole thing, nobody wins. Nobody won.” Um, wrong, Ryan. America won. Also, my favorite part of this video is where he refers to the gym as a “gymnasium.” Oh god, it’s happening again. I am swooning. Keep reading »
