Seventeen-year-old Amy Winehouse‘s journal entries and song lyrics have been discovered in a pile of dumped school books. Winehouse apparently scribbled verses inside a red notebook for English Literature (she wrote “Amy’s Songs” on the cover). Some of her early lyrics from 2001 found in the notebook include: “I’m digging myself into a hole/These days I’ll just work when once I had so much soul” and the somewhat prophetic “Drain my drink & order more” and “Find someone with whom I can come undone.” She also writes about “crazy sexual tension” with a boy she knows and plans to wear “that little skirt” and “little white heels” just to tease him.

Another day, another legal battle for the Lohans. The awesomely-named “Dogs in Pocketbooks,” a potential movie based on Lindsay Lohan‘s
trainwreck life, has gotten mama bear Dina Lohan dialing up the lawyers. Socialite and heiress Lydia Hearst is rumored to be playing the starlet based on LiLo, alongside Joan Collins as a high-powered agent, in this “spoof” on the “obsession with modern celebrity.”
“Lydia will play a bratty movie goddess in and out of rehab, in trouble with the law, and hounded by greedy agents, predatory paparazzi, off-the-wall stalkers and crazed media — a role obviously based on Lindsay Lohan,” screenwriter Charles Casillo told the New York Post. Keep reading »
Lieutenant Neil Bucken was stationed in Afghanistan and couldn’t make it home for Christmas or his sister’s birthday, so he did what any normal guy might do — he sent his family in Staten Island, NY, a life-sized ice sculpture of himself holding a bouquet of red roses. Sure. The seven-foot-tall statue includes a photo of himself with sister Sullivan encased in the ice. Bucken has been in the military for the past two years, and stationed in Afghanistan for the past nine months. His mother Donna said, “Half the family was bawling their eyes out. It was just amazing. It was very touching.” [Splash News] Keep reading »
