Susan Boyle didn’t look like much when she stepped to the microphone on “Britain’s Got Talent,” the UK version of “American Idol.” Her hair’s wack, her brows need plucking, and she did a tummy wiggle dance that was just not becoming. But once she opened her mouth, even Meanasaurus Rex Simon Cowell got teary over her flawless rendition of “I’ve Dreamed A Dream.” Show em’ how it’s done, old girl! Keep reading »

If the best kind of friends are the ones who know how to laugh at themselves, Lindsay Lohan is totes my new BFF. Sure, the girl might be nutso, especially after her split from Samantha Ronson, but I’ll take a dose of the crazy if it makes me snarf my Diet Coke with glee. Keep reading »
I’ve always thought the ads for cotton were nicely done, but this new one blows away all past commercials for the fabric of our lives. In it, Zooey Deschanel prances through her day, performing, writing a song, checking out a flea market, browsing through records, and trying on various adorable outfits made of cotton.
When other starlets appear in commercials or put their names on products, we think of them as sellouts, i.e., Lindsay and her line of hosiery. Zooey, on the other hand, has managed to use her image to make money without damaging her reputation. In fact, we love her even more for it! And cotton isn’t the only thing she’s selling. Zooey recently launched a mini-line of sunglasses with Oliver Peoples. Other celebrities should follow her classy example. [TheFabricOfOurLives.com, where you can download Zooey's cotton song] Keep reading »
Here’s Edie Beale in the original “Grey Gardens,” describing her “best costume for the day,” an insane combo of pantyhose and safety pins. Best costume, indeed.
The fashion expert claims, “I don’t like women in skirts…you understand.” We understand she means a plain old skirt. But a skirt fashioned out of a turtleneck or cardigan — now that’s another story, darling.
After the jump, the essentials of how to get Edie’s pantyhose-over-pants-under-skirt look. Note: You must pair with major attitude. Keep reading »
Keira Knightley seems to make period film after period film, and “The Edge of Love” doesn’t break the trend. In it, she and Sienna Miller play two women loved by the famous poet Dylan Thomas. The movie is out in very limited release in the U.S., but we think it looks worth Netflixing for a few reasons: 1) Lindsay Lohan was originally cast in the role Sienna plays, and we’d like to imagine how the train-wreck would have played it. 2) A first, we didn’t even recognize Sienna Miller. She had to put on a little weight for the role, and she looks lovelier than ever. 3) Matthew Rhys, aka Kevin Walker on “Brothers & Sisters,” plays Dylan Thomas. 4) Cillian Murphy and his baby blues.

“Hannah Montana: The Movie” raked in $34 million smackers this weekend, double what was expected. But Miley Cyrus promises that this movie, in which her character goes to Tennessee and decides to officially give up performing as her alter ego, is fo’ reals her last time playing Hannah. [LA Times] — If you listen closely, you can hear girls across the country crying themselves to sleep in their Hannah Montana pink pillowcases. Keep reading »
John McCain went on “The Tonight Show” last night and spoke about the future of the Republican party and who’s leading the GOP. He mentioned several governors, and, apparently, he doesn’t consider former running mate Sarah Palin to be one of the “young, dynamic governors” in their party, because he intentionally didn’t mention her. Diss! [The Daily Beast via AOL News] Keep reading »
Last night on “Dancing With The Stars,” the contestants had to dance the Rumba, a romantic dance that was difficult for shy, virginal 17-year-old Shawn Johnson to embrace, especially after her partner Marc Ballas got a boner (click after the jump to check it out!) during their live routine a couple weeks ago. Not to worry, though — Marc had a plan to help her relax and imagine herself in love with him! Since Shawn will likely miss her own prom this year if she continue with the competition, Marc surprised her with an impromptu prom one day last week. He filled their rehearsal room with balloons and a disco ball, wore a tux and wide grin, and handed Shawn a skin-tight, flesh-colored gown — you know, just what every teenage girl wants from a dude who got a boner for her on national TV! “I wanted to recreate the prom so it could help us get in the character of the dance,” Marc explains. He doesn’t mention how he recreated an after-prom, but after watching their Rumba last night, I think it’s safe to say the gown stayed on.
