Christmas has come early! Spencer Pratt and Heidi Montag are BACK, but a seemingly more humbled version of their once-egomaniacal selves. Last night, E! aired the special, “Heidi & Spencer: After Shock” (trailer above), which tells the Speidi story in the couple’s own words, including where they’ve been since they fell off the radar a couple years ago. In short, the producers of “The Hills,” which made the couple famous, convinced them to act like total dickweeds, then the fame went to their heads, they spent all of their money, tried everything to get it back, and have now realized none of it was worth it. Away from the limelight, they have realized what’s important — and that is setting the record straight by doing a special on E! and trying to improve their public image so Spencer will give Heidi a baby.

So John Mayer and Katy are all in lovvvvve, so in lovvvvve that they recorded a duet together called “Who You Love.” Love love love! LOVE. So much love. Anyway, the duo went for a kind of moody, sixties, Bob Dylan and Joan Baez vibe with the black and white cover photo, part of a larger shoot that you can see after the jump. My favorite photo is the one where John’s denim shirt (natch) has amputated Katy’s hand. Also, they look like siblings which makes me sort of uncomfy. [Vanity Fair] Keep reading »
This weekend’s untimely death of actor Paul Walker at the age of 40 is such a tragedy and I certainly wish his family (especially his 15-year-old daughter, Meadow), friends and colleagues my sincere condolences. But as I was reading various news articles about Walker and the car crash that killed him, something stuck out to me — Walker is also survived by his girlfriend (and rumored fiancee) of seven years, Jasmine Pilchard-Gosnell, age 23. Here, lemme do the math for you. Walker and Pilchard-Gosnell began dating when he was 33 and she was only 16. Say what? Keep reading »
Hey, how was your day yesterday? Chances are it was probably more chill than Kanye West’s, who made the interview rounds in NYC Tuesday, with his fiancee Kim Kardashian by his side. Some of the interviews were cordial and fun and Kanye was in a good mood — like when he and Kim sat down with Angie Martinez from Hot 97 — and others were … heated. Kanye got into it with both Charlemagne at Power 105 and with his own pal Sway. Charlemagne basically told Kanye to his face that he thought Yeezus was wack and asked him pointed questions about why he’s so obsessed with money now. Sway, bless him, saw Kanye wig out on him after he asked a really simple question about funding his fashion line. It got to the point where Kanye was legit yelling and Sway said they could take it outside. Both interviews eventually calmed down and ended on a positive note, but needless to say, it was a moody day for Yeezy.
After falling into a serious K(anye)-hole last night, I have emerged with this thought: I think that Kanye has a lot of interesting and smart observations that are muddled by his inability to filter out his less constructed points. For the most part, I choose to listen. Maybe crack some jokes, but still listen.
Anyway, one area in which Kanye isn’t confusing? When he’s talking about fiancee Kim Kardashian. He spent quite a bit of airtime giving his future wife a lot of love. Here is Kanye on Kim… Keep reading »
