‘Tis the season for celebrity political endorsements, and just yesterday comes another one — this time from Kelly Clarkson. Kelly says that while she considers herself a Republican, she can’t abide by Mitt Romney’s anti-gay marriage stance, and has decided to support Obama. Additionally, she said, “I’ve been reading online about the debates and I’m probably going to vote for Obama again … I can’t support Romney’s policies as I have a lot of gay friends and I don’t think it’s fair they can’t get married.”
Additionally, she voiced concern over women’s rights issues. “I’m not a hardcore feminist but we can’t be going back to the ’50s,” she said.
Last year, Clarkson voiced her support for Ron Paul, but then retracted it after it was found that Paul was linked to several racist and homophobic pamphlets. “I am really sorry if I have offended anyone. Obviously that was not my intent. I do not support racism. I support gay rights, straight rights, women’s rights, men’s rights, white/black/purple/orange rights,” she said.

Lindsay Lohan has had a hell of a week. First, her dad Michael Lohan tried to stage an intervention, and asked that Lindsay’s estate be placed under conservatorship. And just days later, Lohan got her panties in a bunch over the presidential debate. Linz, who has previously said she would vote for Romney, watched the debate on pins and needles. Check out her anxiety-filled and delusional tweets above!
It’s been a busy weekend for La Famiglia Lohan. On Friday, Micheal Lohan appeared at Lindsay’s house in L.A., planning to stage an intervention, supposedly with her management team and lawyers in tow. But everyone was turned away at the door by a guy claiming to be Lindsay’s new boyfriend and then someone even called the cops to report a trespasser.
Never one to let something little like the police to get in his way, Father Of The Year is now vowing to seek conservatorship of Lindsay … you know, Britney Spears-style. Keep reading »
So … guess the mother/daughter duo made up after last night’s big fight? The latest is that Michael Lohan, LiLo’s dad and Dina’s ex-husband, called the cops after Lindsay called him to tell him about the fight, saying that her mom was “on cocaine” and trying to “kidnap” her. She also told him she sustained a cut leg and broken bracelet (!!!), and Dina can allegedly be heard in the background of the call (which, duh, Michael recorded and gave to TMZ) telling her daughter, “You’re dead to me.” Something tells me both Dina and Lindsay woke up this morning with a hangover and a case of “Wait, what happened?” [Photos: INFDaily]
One of the perks of being a celebrity is that no matter what you want to do and where you want to go, there is someone willing to drive you in the privacy of an air-conditioned car, without any pesky commoners invading your personal, famous bubble. That is why it is kind of awesome when a celebrity is spotted riding public transportation. How normal! For instance, Jay-Z hopped the R train from his digs in Manhattan’s posh Tribeca ‘hood to Brooklyn this weekend for his last concert at the new Barclays Center. (Certain beyotches named Amelia were in the audience. Madly jealous. Sore subject.) Of course Jay was accompanied by plainclothes cops and his own security team. It’s not like he rides the subway like us normal folks. [MissInfo.tv]
In addition to being better for the environment, public transportation is often more efficient and quicker than fighting traffic. Plus, it’s just kind cool to see celebs “out in the wild,” clutching filthy subway poles and giving the stink eye to rude multi-seat hoggers with the rest of us. Here are a bunch more celebs spotted on public transpo!
It’s hard to remember, but back in the day, Lindsay Lohan was an adorable child star. She made her transition to adult-ish movies with the Tina Fey hit “Mean Girls,” and she was totally awesome in it. Here, we see a small glimpse into a pre-monitoring bracelet/car crash/rehab Lindz, as she — along with Amy Poehler and Tina Fey — recites the Kevin G math rap from the 2004 movie. [YouTube]
Someone apparently loaned embattled starlet Lindsay Lohan their kid for the evening, possibly to use as a counterbalance to those nasty rumors that she was involved in another hit and run. Let’s hope she and the little one took a cab. [Photos: Splash News]
