Demi Lovato Considers Her Scars To Be “Beautiful Battle Wounds”

(Another) Quote Of The Day: Natalie Portman Cut Herself

"Just as what you are feeling in your life affects your acting, what you act in definitely affects what you are feeling in your life. I made 'Heat' when I was 14 and played a girl who died. A year later, I got into a fight with my mother and cut myself. I had never…

OMG! Is Taylor Momsen A Cutter?!

So seriously, if she is, it's not funny. But Little J was out past her bedtime as usual last night and displayed some suspicious markings on her inner wrist. Now, as a clumsy gal myself, these could be the result of a fall or an angry cat. But girlfriend is going for a rock 'n'…
