Earlier this week, Lady Gaga became editor-in-chief of London’s Metro newspaper for a day, because wearing jeweled nipple tassels is as essential to an editor’s job as being able to wield a red pen and fix a serial comma. Today, I hear that Nicki Minaj became principal for a day at Collins Academy High School in Chicago when the school won the Get MotivatED contest for attendance. Nicki got the honor of giving three students scholarship checks—very cool—but I’m not so sure how she handled any students who might have gotten sent to her office for bad behavior. Maybe rather than detention, she made them wear an extra heavy Marge Simpson wig? [USA Today]
Now, I get these “______ for a day” gigs. Keep reading »
The blogosphere is still debating over whether or not Kanye West and Amber Rose are really broken up or if they’re secretly still shopping and sexing each other. I, on the other hand, am more interested in knowing if they were ever that close to begin with. Walking around like the remix to Prince and Apollonia is cute and all, but I think everyone is forgetting one important fun fact: Amber seems to really really like women…Read more

Megan Fox and Shia LaBeouf seem to like each other an awful lot. “He probably is my favorite person in the entire world,” Megan told People. And Shia replied, “We’re attracted to each other, and I think you can see that in our scenes together. It’s very real and tangible.” Holy smokes! Add in the fact that Megan’s car was apparently spotted at Shia’s house early in the morning last week, and lots of people are saying these two are a couple. [People] We wonder what Megan’s boyfriend, 90210er Brian Austin Green thinks about this “very real” chemistry?
Yeah, we aren’t buying it. “Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen” opens on June 24th and this has publicity stunt written all over it. With all the ridiculous things that come out of Shia and Megan’s mouths, we’re beginning to think that oversharing in general is the “Transformers” marketing strategy. After the jump, the most looney tunes quotes from both these stars.

Andrea Vasa, a 30-year-old hot football — in other words soccer — player for Milan’s Brera team, is living in Dirk Bikkembergs, a high-end Italian store, parading around half-naked, lifting weights, and lolling about for anyone who happens to look in the windows. “Among the shelves and clothes hangers exposing the items that are for sale, Andrea’s personal clothes can be found, as well as the pictures and books he chose to take with him to his new home.” He’s got his own housekeeper and can invite over whomever he likes, but what if he wants to leave? “Before going out, Andrea will take a shower in a relax room papered with pages from Gazzetta dello Sport, compose his outfit for the following occasion, preen himself in one of the silver trophies, step into his Porsche and drive it out through a massive window that doubles as a garage door.” Fascinating! Too bad, Towleroad notes, the shower is the only part of the live-in scene that’s shielded from public view. Keep reading »

We’ve already discussed the clever use of girl-on-girl as a go-to publicity stunt for celebrities. But it’s not the only shady tactic used by Hollywood to garner interest in stars whose popularity is waning or in film, tv, and music projects that might otherwise go unnoticed. After the jump, five recent “celebrity” stories that I think are totally fake and carefully concocted. Keep reading »
