Adele’s Ex-Boyfriend Wants Royalties For Inspiring Her Debut Album

“For about a week he was calling and was deadly serious about it. Finally, I said, ‘Well, you made my life hell, so I lived it and now I deserve it.’ He really thought he’d had some input into the creative process by being a prick. I’ll give him the credit — he made me an adult, and put me on the road that I’m traveling.”

Adele shares that her ex-boyfriend, who inspired the songs on her first album, 19, thought he was entitled to royalties for fueling all her songs of heartbreak and devastation. Wow, what nerve that guy had. Luckily none of our exes have asked for a cut of the profits from all the ink we’ve spilled about them on The Frisky. Maybe I shouldn’t give them any ideas.

Robert Pattinson’s Royal Fib

“When I first came to L.A., it was very easy to convince people I was a member of the royal family. I hadn’t worked for three years — I was unemployed in London — and when people asked what I’d been doing, I told people I went to RADA [Royal Academy of Dramatic Art] with Prince William. People would think, ‘You’re English, I completely believe you!’”

Robert Patttinson reveals to Graham Norton the name-dropping trick he used when he first moved to the United States to pursue acting. It’s not bad. But I think he could have taken it farther. I mean, why not make himself a royal cousin or a Duke of whatnot? [PopEater] Keep reading »

Johnny Depp Promises His “Lone Ranger” Won’t Be As … Racist

“I remember watching it as a kid, with Jay Silverheels and Clayton Moore, and going: ‘Why is the f**king Lone Ranger telling Tonto what to do?’ I liked Tonto, even at that tender age, and knew Tonto was getting the unpleasant end of the stick here. That’s stuck with me. And when the idea came up [for the movie], I started thinking about Tonto and what could be done in my own small way try to — ‘eliminate’ isn’t possible — but reinvent the relationship, to attempt to take some of the ugliness thrown on the Native Americans, not only in ‘The Lone Ranger,’ but the way Indians were treated throughout history of cinema, and turn it on its head.”

Johnny Depp talks about his reinterpretation of “The Lone Ranger,” which will be directed by Gore Verbinski, the man behind the camera for the “Pirates of the Caribbean” series. The twist on the classic “Ranger” story? That Johnny, who is actually part Native American, will play Tonto, the lead role. The secondary role, The Lone Ranger, has yet to be cast but both Ryan Gosling and Armie Hammer have both been rumored for it. We say: yes! [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Uncle Joey, I Mean Dave Coulier, Responds To Alanis Morissette’s Song “You Oughta Know”

“The Alanis [Morissette] I know is really fun to be around and really thoughtful and sweet. I think there’s a lot of things in Jagged Little Pill that are very deep and fueled by her interactions with a lot of people. At the time we were dating, she was writing a lot of music, and I was a newly divorced, single father with a two-year old son. She was living in Ottawa, Canada and I was living in Los Angeles. It was a tough time for me and a lot of distance for a budding relationship. I’ll always think of her as a really great person. As far as being the so-called subject of ‘You Oughta Know’…I’ll just let the urban legend folks keep spinning on that one.”

— Oh, Uncle Joey, why do you deny “You Oughta Know” is about you? Dave Coulier totally admitted in a 2008 interview with the Calgary Sun the song is about him. Dave told the paper then, “I said, ‘Wow, this girl is angry [when he first heard the song while driving].’ And then I said, ‘Oh man, I think it’s Alanis.’ I listened to the song over and over again, and I said, ‘I think I have really hurt this person.’” Hey, I guess she really was there to remind him of the mess he left when he went away.

Stevie Nicks Says “NO!” To Lindsay Lohan Starring In Her Biopic

“She’s never going to [play me]. That’s never going to happen unless she cleans up her life and becomes the great actress I feel she can be. Everybody thinks I hate her, and it’s not that at all.”

Stevie Nicks gives her two cents on Lindsay Lohan saying that she wants to play her in a Fleetwood Mac biopic. Wow, Stevie doesn’t mince words. And a few years ago, she told The New York Times, “Over my dead body. She needs to stop doing drugs and get a grip. Then maybe we’ll talk.” [Huffington Post] Keep reading »

Kate Hudson Prefers The Term “Baby Daddy”

“It’s weird to say fiance to me, I like baby daddy … So he’ll be baby daddy until he’s hubby.”

Kate Hudson on what she calls her soon-to-be husband, Matt Bellamy. Begrudgingly, I find this cute. It’s nice to see a woman who has a sense of humor about her shotgun wedding. [Huffington Post] Keep reading »
