Gallery: Mischa Barton Sticks With The Wisdom Teeth Story & Other Ridiculous Celeb Excuses

mischa barton 082809 jpg
Mischa Barton is sticking with the wisdom teeth story in her first interview since she was involuntarily committed last month.

“I went through a terrible surgery—a wisdom tooth surgery, all four removed. It was a nightmare. I’ve never had surgery before—it all went wrong and I had to have a second surgery and it almost delayed shooting because it was a nightmare to me, because I couldn’t deal with the thought of not getting there on time. So with the travel, and surgery and prep for the show—it was hell.” [Gawker]

Oh, so the upcoming wisdom teeth surgery is why she looks so haggard and drunk all the time? Not that she has an addiction and went to rehab? That totally makes sense. Almost as much sense as these lamest of celebrity excuses.

Quote Of The Day: Natalie Portman Likes To Get Crunk

“I’ve mostly been listening to dirty rap lately. That’s sort of my scene. Really, really obscene hip-hop. I love it so much. It makes me laugh and then it makes me want to dance. Those are like my two favorite things, so combined … I’ve been listening a lot lately to ‘Wait (The Whisper Song)’ by the Ying Yang Twins, where the lyrics are like, ‘Wait ’til you see my dick’ — which is just amazing because it’s whispered. [whispers] ‘Wait ’til you see my dick…’ Crazy. So I just listen to it like I’m a five-year-old, like, ‘Oh my god! I can’t believe he just said that!’”

RIP: Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein

Adam Goldstein, aka DJ AM, one of Hollywood’s (and the country’s) most loved DJs, was found dead in his New York apartment yesterday. He was 36. Almost one year ago, Goldstein and musician Travis Barker survived a fatal plane crash in South Carolina, in which they both received severe burns. Goldstein was also a recovering drug addict, having developed an addiction to crack cocaine in his 20s. Though he had been sober for the past nine years — and had recently finished filming an MTV reality show about addiction — Goldstein’s body was allegedly found next to bottles of prescription drugs and other drug paraphernalia, including a pipe commonly used to smoke crack. Friends say he had been dealing with the lingering emotional trauma of his near-death experience last year. Goldstein’s last Twitter update, from Tuesday, quoted Grand Master Flash, saying, “New York, New York. Big city of dreams, but everything in New York ain’t always what it seems.” [NY Post] Keep reading »

Quickies!: Nick Jonas Wants To Be Your Commander In Chief & Naked Man Hijacks Bus

  • Nick Jonas says he’s always wanted to be president. [U.S. News] — I’m not even thinking about the year 2040 yet.
  • Kelly Osbourne has revealed her past Vicodin addiction in her book Fierce, due out in September. [Access Hollywood] — You’d think someone whose father had such terrible bouts with addiction would stay away from drugs. But then again, common sense and addiction don’t really go together.

The Friday Roundup: It Happened This Week On The Frisky

Man, this week was a downer! Senator Ted Kennedy, a champion of women’s rights, passed away. Chris Brown avoided jail time for beating the crap out of Rihanna. Someone thought it’d be a good idea for Kate Gosselin to host “The View.” And teenagers in Phoenix did some nasty things with tampons and alcohol.

At least Anna Wintour nailed her “Letterman” interview. (Yay, “The September Issue” is out tonight! Well, in New York, anyway.) After the jump, see what else happened this week on The Frisky! Keep reading »

Viral Videos On YouTube Can Now Earn You Megabucks

It used to be that only Google’s YouTube users who “regularly produce videos that reach a wide audience” were able to make money from ad revenue sales on their videos. But now, Google is explanding its partnership program so those with one-hit wonders can cash in, too. If a video gets enough views, users automatically get a message saying, “Enable Revenue Sharing.” If you see this link, click on it to get a share of the revenue YouTube makes from selling ads on your video page. We hope this will be very good news for the couple who made “JK Wedding Entrance Dance,” which got over 10 million views but never made them a dime. And for the owner of that darn bulldog on a skateboard. [News AU] Keep reading »

Who Are Men’s Fashion Magazines For Anyway?

While the U.S. version of Men’s Vogue folded a few months ago, it’s apparently still in international production. This photo of a male stripper/dominatrix/all-around stud serves as the cover boy for Japan’s version, but looks like it could just as easily be the cover of (also now defunct) Playgirl. It might make sense that Vogue Homme would be looking to sell to gay men, but something this steamy is certainly going to appeal to women too. (You have to admit, it is a bit hard not to stare.) If Vogue Homme is in fact attempting to market itself to women, we have to ask how they’d ever manage to tap the straight male audience—a men’s fashion magazine with a hot girl on the cover? Guess we buy those anyhow. [StyleFrizz.com] Keep reading »
