Zergnet: Simply Irresistible
There are a few things that remind us of summer, and in the dead of a lingering winter, we like to be reminded of them — suntan lotion, popsicles, hot dogs slathered with mustard, coral-colored pedicures, and Ben Harper. Ahh, Ben, your hotness is entrancing. Your albums — from 1997′s The Will To Live to 2007′s Lifeline — are among some of our favorite bluesy jams, mostly because they make us think of California and the beach and sunsets, but don’t leave the bad taste of college drum circles. We just have one problem with you — why is your summer tour in Europe? [Ben Harper Official Website] Keep reading »
Gotta admit, I wasn’t necessarily the hugest fan of Charlie on Lost — for starters, Dominic Monaghan played a Hobbit in those snoozeville Lord of the Rings movies (I have a similar prejudice against Elijah Wood for this reason). Second, Charlie’s character was kind of predictable with the heroin addiction and the “Claire, what about the baaaaaby?”-lines. But then Charlie turned out to be the ultimate hero in the final episode of last season and I totally cried. And then he started to seem hotter, especially in his brief “ghost” appearances this season. So when I saw that the image above (“Self-Portrait. Charlie.”) was part of an exhibit of photographs Monaghan has taken called “Happy Accidents”, I was totally won over by the lil’ guy. He’s cute, and he plays a good hero, and he takes nice pictures! Like the one after the jump, of Lost super hotties, Sawyer and Jack. Keep reading »
Oh Eliot Spitzer, what were you thinking? The Governor from New York admitted yesterday that he had been linked to a prostitution ring and government officials are pushing for him to resign or risk impeachment. But what’s really got our goat is the fact that this is yet another case of a powerful guy with a solid family risking it all for a little fun playing doctor with a hooker. In an article in AM New York, a psychotherapist says that high-powered people with fast-paced jobs and responsibility like dangerous, illicit, illegal behavior because it gives them that rush that they can’t get from anywhere else, since they’ve developed such a high-threshold for mental and emotional stimulation. Okay, fine, get that, but why are they also so stupid? “All reasoning and respect for the law go out the window,” says Jonathan Alpert.
When Ryan Gosling was 12, all he wanted to talk about was sex. Unfortunately, the mothers of his fellow pre-teen cast-members on The All New Mickey Mouse Club weren’t so happy about the sex ed lessons he was giving their kids. “I was just telling them what I’d heard about sex, you know, positions and stuff,” Ryan said. “Disney had a meeting with me, and they were like, ‘You’re not Disney material. We’re gonna kick you off the show if you say anything sexual again.’ I’m ****ing 12! All I care about is sex! How can I not talk about it?” Just think of how many young celebs’ sex lives he may have influenced! Britney Spears, Christina Aguilera, Justin Timberlake, JC Chasez, and Keri Russell were on the show at the same time as Ryan. [ContactMusic.com] Keep reading »
I got an interesting email last night from Diana Falzone, who hosts DeVore & Diana on Sirius Maxim Radio. In her email, Diana writes:
Enough is enough.â€¦today I read about Elliot Spitzer cheating on his wife of twenty years with a hooker. What is wrong with men? I think Iâ€™ve finally figured it out. Itâ€™s women. Women find excuses to stay with their men while men try to find excuses to leave their wives and girlfriends.
The Sexiest Man Alive is about to spawn. Matt Damon has a wife (sniff), and the dark and lovely Luciana is knocked up again. The couple was seen at the Empire Awards in London yesterday with the hottest accessory in Hollywood: the baby bump. While Matt picked up an award for the Bourne Ultimatum, there might be a possible pick-up in our future. By the time we reach cougardom, this babe will be single, available, and H-O-T like daddy. Is it too early to leave the fetus our phone number? Call me in 18 years, 6 months kid… [DListed] Keep reading »
You know, Ashton Kutcher is definitely kind of a dweeb and while it goes without saying that he is smokin’ hot, we haven’t always been convinced that he’s the sharpest knife in the drawer, due in no small part to his convincing portrayal of mega-dummy Kelso on That ’70s Show. But the first few seasons of Punk’d on MTV were brilliantly funny (remember the one where they convinced Justin Timberlake that his possession were being seized and the dude almost cried?) and it seems the Kutch may have more tricks up his sleeve. Ashton has been hard at word on a new project, Pop Fiction, which targets the paparazzi and various tabloid media outlets with outrageous and totally fake news stories — like Paris Hilton’s dalliance with a “shaman” and perhaps even the outbreak of Hepatitis at Ashton’s birthday party, two stories covered seriously by the tabs. Ashton, we should have never underestimated that your talent for pranks wouldn’t match you good looks. Keep reading »
