“I consider ‘groupie’ a sexist term. I think it’s a misused term. I’ve seen Jerry Hall called a groupie in the English press, and this is a girl who gave Mick Jagger four babies, and how many years did she spend with him? When people just decide that every woman in rock and roll is a groupie because she dated a rock star or two, that’s when I draw the line. A groupie was the girl that came backstage offering the blow jobs to the crew or this or that. I was a rock girlfriend … I had lovely boyfriends. I think for your first three boyfriends to be Mick Jagger, Todd Rungren, and David Bowie, I think that’s okay.”
—Bebe Buell, aka the mother of Liv Tyler, talks to New York magazine about her reputation as one of the most famous groupies of all time. You gotta admit, homegirl did pretty well for herself back in the day. In addition to these guys, she was also linked to, duh, Steven Tyler and Elvis Costello. But Bebe didn’t just date rock stars. She also makes music. In fact, her first big album, Hard Love, drops soon.
Actress Anna Kendrick stars with my boyfriend Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen in the new cancer comedy “50/50.” During a recent interview, the three began discussing the different ways female and male celebs are typically interviewed. Anna noted that women get asked about their workout routine and beauty regimens a whole lot more than men do. And Seth concurred that the questions his female costars are often asked are downright embarrassing. Obviously, these three have not been interviewed by The Frisky. We are equal opportunity with embarrassing questions. [Moviefone]

The Kwanzaa fairy came early this year: there’s a 10-minute-long “Bridesmaids” outtake! It’s packed with the most obscure insults to ever pour forth from Kristen Wiig‘s brain during that scene where she fights with a snotty teenaged girl in the jewelry shop. You could either watch it here … or grab yourself the “Bridesmaids” Blu-ray DVD, on which the bonus scene originally appeared. BTW, “You look like you vacation in America” is totally my new go-to insult. [YouTube via The Hairpin]
On “The Playboy Club,” Sean Maher plays a man who is gay, but is in a sham marriage with a bunny. And it appears that art is sure imitating life here. This week, Sean sat down with Entertainment Weekly to reveal that, like his character, he is gay and has been hiding it for the 14 years he’s been working as an actor on TV shows like “Firefly.” Not only that, Sean is a family man. He has been with his partner Paul for nine years and they have two children, Sophia and Liam. (Take that, Patti Stanger.)
“This is my coming out ball,” Sean exclaims in the article. “I’ve been dying to do this … I’ve never been asked about it publicly, but I would be lying if I said I didn’t paint a different picture.”
