—Kelly Osbourne tweets on Monday while witnessing two separate crimes in progress on the streets of London, a few hours apart. Glad to hear that Kelly is there to singlehandedly keep everyone safe. Kelly for sheriff! Just not for grammar teacher. [ONTD]

It’s exciting to see that, in a post-”Bridesmaids” world, Kristen Wiig is starting to get major clout in Hollywood. For years, she has apparently wanted to do a movie called “Imogen,” and it has finally been picked up. Written by the husband and wife team behind “American Splendor,” Kristen describes “Imogen” as such: “It’s basically about a girl who kind of pretends to kill herself. She does it to get her recently ex-boyfriend’s attention. She ends up having to go live with her mom, whom she hasn’t seen in years. It’s kind of about going back home, so she finds her life again and gets reintroduced to her family, kind of a coming home story.” Kristen is hoping to be shooting by the summer.
So what else is on Kristen’s plate? Keep reading »
“I hate movies. I hate the whole f**king movie business. I hate everything involved with movies. Producers. Moviemakers. Those people are freaking nuts and criminals. I can’t take it. They’re not like the rest of humanity. I’d rather hang out with plumbers. They’re so self-important. And everything they do is bulls**t. Excuse me, but movies are bulls**t. They’re tidy little f**king bulls**t stories. They all have a rape thing in them. They’re all anti-woman. They’re all f**king bullshit. There isn’t one of ‘em that speaks to me or says anything decent. Somebody could go in with the best f**king script, like, ‘Grapes of Wrath,’ and they’d come out and it’d star Kevin James. Nothing can happen good in movies and it never does … I didn’t like being in movies. You have to sit there 19 hours in a trailer. Which is why I got into show business—to get out of a f**king trailer. I’m sitting in a trailer and 19 hours later, they come down and they turned on a light. So you go down and stand there and then you go back and wait 19 more hours. And then you go and say your line 75 times in a row. It’s boring to me. I liked that movie ‘V [for Vendetta].’
—Roseanne Barr tells The Daily Beast how she really feels about the movie industry. I guess you you shouldn’t invite her to movie night, unless you happen to be screening the one she thinks is acceptable. Sure, she may be a bit of a sourpuss but I love that Roseanne can go on this kind of rant simply by being asked, “Did you see ‘Knocked Up’?” [The Daily Beast] Keep reading »
I was already convinced that the coolest of girls had red hair, thanks to Pippi Longstocking. But then Tiffany exploded on the scene in 1987 with her monster hit, “I Think We’re Alone Now.” Tiffany was one of the first CDs I ever purchased and I listened to it on repeat for hours at a time. I even remember buying an acid washed denim jacket, just so I could look a little more like Tiffany, since my mom had strictly forbid me from dying my hair red.
Tiffany, of course, has a last name. It’s Darwish. And 24 years after her first mall tour, she is back on the road with her fellow ‘80s pop iconic, Deborah Gibson, whom she reconnected with while shooting the SyFy movie, Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid, available now on DVD. Only this time, Tiffany is not just a singer with a new album out—and yes, she does have a new one called Rose Tattoo—she’s also a wife and a mother of a 19-year-old. Yeah, that made me feel old, too.
After the jump, we sat down with Tiffany to talk about her tour, her new album, life, and her relationship to jean jackets these days. Keep reading »
