The Many, Many Musicians Who’ve Tried Their Hand At Acting

We’ll start things off with Carrie’s fellow Country Stars:

The Good: Tim McGraw was pretty darn convincing as the husband/manager of alcoholic country singer Kelly Canter in “Country Strong.” Though I have to ask: why cast Tim in a movie about country music and not have him sing so much as a single bar? But perhaps the most classic performance by a country star in a movie of all time? Dolly Parton in “Nine to Five.” Pure genius.

The Bad: Reba McEntire in “The Gambler Returns: The Luck of the Draw,” though admittedly I did kind of enjoy her TV series. And Taylor Swift did not impress in the cheesy “Valentine’s Day.” Back to the studio, young one.

Lesson Carrie Should Take: Keep things wholesome, and your audience will love it. I’m thinking her choice of a church youth group leader role is right on target.

Man Has Mannequin Wife On “My Strange Addiction”


Just the other day, I learned more about the unusual sexual practice, agalmatophilia, otherwise known as mannequin love. Then lo and behold, I got to see it in action on this week’s episode of “My Strange Addiction.” Thirty-seven-year-old Davecat let the world see his relationship with his synthetic wife, Sidore. They enjoy having sex and doing erotic photo shoots together. And she never disagrees with him. The therapist gives his astute analysis — Davecat is lonely. Ya think? Oh, and there’s also a severe scab picker featured on the episode. This series just keeps getting more and more enthralling. [ONTD] Keep reading »

8 Ridiculous Celebrity Lawsuits

Katherine Heigl Sues Duane Reade & 8 Other Ridiculous Celeb-Related Lawsuits

Katherine Heigl once had an extremely promising career, starring on “Grey’s Anatomy” and in a number of (shitty) rom-coms, but she hasn’t been able to get a job recently thanks to the terrible reputation she and her manager mom have for their diva-like demands. I don’t think her latest headline-making stunt is going to win her any fans — she’s suing Duane Reade drugstores for six million dollars because they tweeted the above photo. I guess her argument is that they used her image to promote their stores without her permission and without paying her, which isn’t okay because she is “a highly successful television and motion picture actress, producer and celebrity” in “high demand.” RECORD SCRATCH. Have a stadium full of seats, Katie Heigl. Highly successful TV and movie actresses don’t need to sue drug store chains because they tweeted a photo. Also, I’m pretty sure Katherine Heigl isn’t worth six million. Ugh, this lawsuit gives me secondhand embarrassment like whoa. [TMZ]

We like in a litigious country so this is of course not the only totally stupid and ridiculous lawsuit related to a celeb’s name and image. Here are a few more…

Lauren Alaina May Be Your Next “American Idol”


Last night, “American Idol” unveiled its first real frontrunner, Lauren Alaina. The 15-year-old Georgia native was inspired to sing by her cousin Holly, who was diagnosed with a brain tumor three years ago. (Heartbreaking story alert!) Lauren, who was described a “beyondo cute” by Steven Tyler (who also may have been referring to her when he said the judges found “the one”), first sang Faith Hill’s “Like We Never Loved At All,” which made judge Jennifer Lopez cry. Then Lauren sang her favorite song, Aerosmith’s “Don’t Wanna Miss A Thing” (convenient!), pointing at Steven Tyler to join in. The judges were clearly enamored with her and while I think she has a very good voice, I don’t know, I didn’t find her to be particularly special or different. PopDust also points out that Lauren suffers from an affliction faced by many an “American Idol” hopeful — the insistence on smiling through the entirety of an audition, “to ingratiate [themselves] with the judges,” even if the lyrics to the song they are singing are downright depressing. It’s annoying, but maybe no one else cares. [PopDust] Keep reading »

Crush Of The Day: “Red Riding Hood”‘s Shiloh Fernandez

Meet Shiloh Fernandez and his tuft of visible pubic hair. Shiloh plays Peter in the upcoming film “Red Riding Hood” opposite Amanda Seyfried (check out the trailer after the jump). Peter may or may not be the infamous wolf in the movie, but Shiloh is definitely a fox. After examining Shiloh’s chest for about 20 minutes, I realized it kind of looks like he got into a tussle with some sort of beast — is that a scar running down the center of his abs or is he just that cut? Anyway, I’ll find out more when I make him my lover. Check out more pics from his VMan photo shoot here. Keep reading »
