The country music world was rocked last week when news broke that Willie Nelson’s famous armadillo mascot had been stolen. The iconic stuffed animal (I had to read the story, like, six times to figure out it wasn’t a real, live armadillo and must admit I was a bit disappointed), which always accompanies Nelson on stage, was nabbed during a fan meet and greet after a Las Vegas concert. Nelson realized the armadillo was missing after his tour bus had already hit the road back to California. His crew called the venue in a panic, requesting the surveillance tapes to help track down the thief, but apparently the mounting guilt had already proved too much for the armadillo snatcher. The next morning, “an apologetic man” drove up to the resort and dropped off a shoe box with instructions to return it to Willie. Inside was the beloved armadillo. Willie’s kidnapped “pet” might have been stuffed, but other famous folks have had their living, breathing pets stolen out from under them.

Once upon a time, there lived three wild, crazy, barely-to-moderately talented entertainers who ran in the same circle but did not often hang out together, either because of jealousy, competition and, some say, bits of unrequited affection. Then one day, all three of these starlets were photographed in a car together and the universe practically exploded considering all the possible outcomes of this new and powerful trifecta. But alas, it was not meant to be, as nothing particularly special resulted from that packed front seat and the three went their separate ways, with none of them churning out anything of particular achievement since. Why am I telling you this story? Oh, because that photograph, the one of the three starlets (Lindsay Lohan, Britney Spears and Paris Hilton, obviously), is so bizarrely infamous that Lily Allen has used it in her video for the song “Our Time,” only she plays all three herself. Watch above! [Chart Rigger]
Just incase Paris Hilton’s dress wasn’t labial enough (did she borrow this gown from ex-friend and labial fashion enthusiast Kim Kardashian?), the socialite made sure to go commando to her birthday festivities in Hollywood last night. That’s hot? [Photos: Splash News]
In case you’d like to feel especially crappy about the unfairness that is life today, I’d like to let you know that Paris Hilton got even richer on vacation last weekend (wait, isn’t her whole life a vacation?). It figures that the one of the few people to score big at the casino is someone who doesn’t need it, but maybe that’s what comes with the luxury of being able to bet endless amounts of money. The heiress alerted her Instagram followers that she won $50,000 playing blackjack in Atlantic City (I’m sure they were on the edge of their seats
at the news). Oh, and was paid $100,000 for DJing gig there. At least she earned
that DJ money by working for it. Sort of. Keep doing you, Paris. [Huffington Post
I really don’t know when exposing the mons pubis became so “fashionable,” but I suspect this trend was covertly driven by the waxing industry, which must be in a panic over the fact that “bush is back.” I can just imagine the conversation… Keep reading »
Add Paris Hilton to the long list of celebrities who are heartbroken by the untimely death of actor Paul Walker. Hilton decided to share her grief with the world by hiring a plane to drag a message across the Hollywood sky which read, “RIP God Be With Fast & Furious Star Paul Walker … #269,” followed by “Our Hearts Go Out To His Friends & Family <3 #17 Paris Hilton.” Now, I haven’t seen the “Fast & Furious” movies, but are the numbers significant to that in some way?

Paris Hilton dressed as Miley Cyrus for Halloween and is she is rocking the look. I guess she looks, “hot.” Her Instagrammed photo says, “Twerk or treat,” which might be the quote of a generation. As we predicted (and just about everyone else on the planet did) Miley’s VMA performance would spark one of the hottest costumes this year. Perhaps more so than Lady Gaga’s “Poker Face” look or Beyonce’s “Single Ladies” unitard fierceness. Hugh Hefner and, wife, Crystal Harris suited up as Robin Thicke and Miley, which is a testament of the twerker’s cultural reach. Seriously, Hugh Hefner is like 90,000,000 years old, I can’t imagine that guy listening to Bangerz.
What’s best about celebrities dressed as other celebrities is that it makes them seem sort of normal. It shows how much the media’s image of one celeb appears the same to another celebrity. Jennifer Love Hewitt’s “Brangelina” (in the gallery at the link) is spot on but also shows how much Brangelina is defined by how many children they’ve adopted together and all the paparazzi photos we see of the family traveling as a pack.

Paris Hilton recently popped into a Beverly Hills Chanel store wearing these crazy X-ray leggings, because she’s Paris Hilton. I’m actually slightly obsessed with these leggings on their own merit (look how cool they are!), but do have some concerns about leggings (no matter how cool they are) being worn as pants, and also didn’t Paris Hilton kind of disappear for a few years? Is she back now? I’m seeing tons of pictures of her again and I’m not sure what’s going on. But anyway, what do you guys think of this look? Vote below!
Are you having a “Good Time”? Because Paris Hilton is having a good time in her new music video teaser, complete with water guns, alcohol (she’s a bit tipsy!!!!), a pool, flashing lights, Lil Wayne … etcetera, etcetera. Watch the dragged-out atrophy of Weezy’s once-fruitful career in slow motion as he spits (more of a groan, really) a verse so terrible, it almost deserves a pat on the back. [Gawker]
I am no fan of the Hilt (what, is that nickname not working for you?), but I got kind of giddy when I saw this photo of her sunbathing with her dogs on the beach in Malibu this weekend. This is totally how Lucca and I would roll if we could find an easily accessible dog-friendly beach in the NY area. (Shakes fist at the sky!) [Photo: Pacific Coast News]
