Is there anything more entertaining than when celebrities read from trashy books? “No Reservations” star Anthony Bourdain is no Gilbert Gottfried reading 50 Shades Of Grey but he does bring a certain Jersey-fied panache to Snooki’s novel, A Shore Thing. Oh, God, I just realized she (“her ghostwriter”) is probably going to write a novel about having a baby. [BlackBook Mag]

So here’s a nice cliched situation for you on this Monday morning. Anna Shannon, the oldest sister of “Here Comes Honey Boo Boo” breakout star, Alana Thompson, has a one month old named Kaitlyn and apparently paternity is an issue.

The hipster formula is as follows: If exclusivity is cool and hideous fashion is undesirable, then adopting hideous fashions because they are undesirable makes one exclusive. And this exclusivity, in turn, makes one cool. Now apply this philosophy to everything you own and… voila! You are a hipster!

For those too square to know, hipsters are currently stuck on a nostalgic obsession with both the 1980s and 1880s, adopting the silliest and most anachronistic fashion choices of both simultaneously. The result is a horrifying mix of big glasses, curly mustaches, tight T-shirts and brimmed hats. We couldn’t help but notice that Shia LaBeouf’s Prohibition-era style in the new gangster film ”Lawless” looks oddly… contemporary. So we’ve compiled a look back at movie characters who didn’t realize they were being hip before anyone else was. Read more…
