Tragedy Strikes! Peaches Geldof And Eli Roth Call Off Wedding

I’m sorry to have to break the news to everyone, but celebrity super-couple Peaches Geldof and Eli Roth have canceled their plans to get hitched. I know! I can hardly believe it either! They seemed so promising: she, a British tabloid fixture whose occupation (model? presenter? writer?) eludes me, and he, the man credited for giving birth to “torture porn.” Maybe it was the age gap; she’s 21, and he’s 38. Publicly, sources are saying they split because of work obligations. About this, I am dubious. In any case, I’m going to need at least 48 hours to recover from this astonishing turn of events.

MC Hammer Versus Jay-Z

It’s Hammer time. MC Hammer has changed his name to King Hammer and released a new video for a song called “Better Run Run.” So who should be running? Jay-Z. Apparently, Hova alluded to Hammer’s money trouble on the Kanye track, “So Appalled.” And this is Hammer’s response. Sample lyrics: “Devil said, ‘Imma give you the world’ / ‘I’ll take it, plus give me a girl’ / ‘Mr. Devil, can you give me a sign’ / He said, ‘Throw the Roc up, that’s one of mine.’” Yowch.

Michael Jackson’s Kids To Appear On “Oprah”

It looks like Michael Jackson‘s kids — Prince, 13, Paris, 12, and Blanket, 8 — will be appearing on an upcoming episode of “The Oprah Winfrey Show.” Apparently, Oprah went to visit Michael’s mother, Katherine, to do a story on the late singer’s childhood, legacy, and children, and she sat down with the kids for a backyard chat. Amelia and I share a longstanding fascination with Blanket, so I, for one, am intrigued to see this. I mean: BLANKET! That right there is enough to capture my attention. It makes me want to name my children after random household items. In any case, the Michael Jackson tribute show airs November 8. [People] Keep reading »

Cher Sometimes Calls Her Son Chaz Bono “Her”

“If I woke up tomorrow in a guy’s body, I would just kick and scream and cry and f**king rob a bank, because I cannot see myself as anything but who I am — a girl. I would not take it as well as Chaz has. I couldn’t imagine it. … She’s a very smart girl — boy! This is where I get into trouble. My pronouns are f**ked. I still don’t remember to call her ‘him.’”

Burlesque star Cher on her daughter-turned-son, Chaz Bono, who had gender reassignment surgery and was legally granted permission to change his name and gender this past May. I’m sure a lot of parents like Cher are supportive of their kid’s decision to have a sex change, but find it hard to say “Chaz” instead of “Chastity.”

After the jump, find out what Cher has to say about Meryl Streep and aging gracefully: Keep reading »

Ricky Martin Says Coming Out Wasn’t Easy

“I couldn’t take it anymore. It was too painful. But I guess the most important thing is my children. … When I was holding them in my arms I was like, ‘What, am I gonna teach them how to lie?’ … When I realized, ‘Okay, I just pressed send,’ whoo—I was alone. I was in my studio alone for a minute. My assistant walked in and I just started crying like a little baby. I started crying.”

Ricky Martin talks to Oprah about his decision to come out of the closet, and how he felt right after making the announcement. No wonder it took him so long. [PopEater] Keep reading »

Sarah Silverman Wants Lower Expectations For Her Nude Scene

“The movie, I think, is gonna be great because Sarah Polley is incredible. But my body? In all honesty, I would say it’s a lot closer to Kathy Bates in ‘About Schmidt’ than, like, Julianne Moore in ‘Short Cuts.’ I am begging you to lower your expectations! … I’ll tell you what you can expect: a Cream of Wheat–ish texture on the upper thighs, from knee to belly button, I would say in all honesty. And a misshapen upper thigh that actually is not misshapen because there’s probably more like it than not, but it doesn’t look good in jeans.”

Sarah Silverman reacts to all the buzz over her doing a nude scene in the movie “Take This Waltz,” directed by Sarah Polley. All we have to say is—girl, please. [NYMag.com] Keep reading »
