It might be a wrap on the first weekend of Coachella, but we’re still getting over some of the random celebrities that decided to descend on Indio, California, for the Music and Arts Festival. To this group of celebs that seemed to stand out like a hand full of sore thumbs, we have three words for you: Just Say No-chella.
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…
An important decision to make as a Hollywood starlet is what stance you will take on carbs. Will you be photographed indulging in them publicly, publish a book decrying them or ban your children from eating them? If you plan to be famous, you’d better figure out how you feel about carbs because you will be asked about your position on this hard-hitting issue during every single interview. Click through to see where these female celebs stand on the on the oh-so-controversial topic of complex carbohydrates.
Stars! They’re just like us! They run funny. They take snack breaks. And when they’re posing for sexy photo shoots, they head straight for the loo and hop in the tub! Here’s “Mad Men”‘s January Jones, lounging in a tub full of flowers for VioletGrey.com. She didn’t even bother to take off her diamonds, because that’s how the glamorous do. January is not the only one getting squeaky clean. Here are 18 other stars posing in or on bathtubs — bubbles are a bonus.
Well, file this one under “Why didn’t I think to do this with pictures of Ryan Gosling?” If you can’t actually spend the day with your favorite celebrity, you might as well spend the day with a photo of your favorite celebrity, right? The baby genius behind the Instagram account “My Day With Leo” photographs cutout pictures of Leonardo DiCaprio and his various characters into snapshots around New York City. Here’s Arnie Grape, Leo’s character from “What’s Eating Gilbert Grape?” chillin’ by his mom’s grave at First Calvary Cemetery in Queens. Click onward to see where else Leonardo DiCaprio has been spending his time… [Instagram]
Attendees at last night’s Knicks game in NYC had a whole other show to watch if the action on the court wasn’t exciting enough. Actress Michelle Rodriguez, who was, uh, visibly wasted, and model Cara Delevingne whooped it up courtside, blowing e-cigarette smoke rings, necking, taking selfies and occasionally napping. Not gonna lie, they seem like a lot of fun, though I’m almost certain the evening ended with Michelle hugging the porcelain throne. (Click through for a whole mess of hilarious photos.)

She’s baaaaaaack. Last night at the Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in Las Vegas, Britney Spears kicked off her “Britney: Piece of Me” residency in front of a crowd that included her little sis Jamie-Lynn, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry and Mario Lopez (who Brit walked around on stage on a leash). Click through to see a dozen sort of awkward photos of the pop star performing. A Frisky staff roadtrip to Vegas is so necessary.
I don’t have much of a sweet tooth, but I enjoy a small slice of cake from time to time. But I am a traditionalist. I prefer my cake to be of the sheet variety, red velvet, chocolate or vanilla, with simple frosting. No doohickies, no weird filling, and most important of all, no huge celebrities heads and faces. I don’t want to eat Snooki’s pouf, or Rihanna’s pursed lips, or Willie Nelson’s braids. Alas, there is a market for highly realistic and unappetizing celeb-inspired cakes.

Contrary to what Julianne Hough might have thought – and since apologized for – it is possible to get all dolled up for Halloween without being offensive and wearing someone’s skin color as a “costume.” These 32 other celebrities managed to dress up, some to the point of being unrecognizable, without donning blackface. What a treat!
Looks like Jake Gyllenhaal is the latest in a long line of celebs to drop a pretty shocking amount of weight for a role. In recent days, Gyllenhaal has been spotted filming the movie “Nightcrawler” in Los Angeles, looking downright frail. I love the dude’s bone structure, trust, but those cheekbones are positively skeletal. Lest you think he’s playing a drug addict or, I dunno, cancer patient in the film, he’s actually portraying a journalist who stumbles upon some underground crime ring. You know us writers — so malnourished!
So, what other celebs have gone to dieting extremes for the sake of their craft? Who lost the most? How did they do it? Click through to find out!
