Guy Ritchie - Emotionally Retarded!

Now that the divorce is official, the Queen of Pop is not holding back any feelings. During her recent performance in Boston, just before performing a song "Miles Away", off her new album "Hard Candy", she said "This song is for the emotionally retarded. Maybe you know some people who fall into that category. I know I do." Wow. People really don't like anything more than a good, juicy celebrity divorce, and this one should really satisfy us all. I do feel bad about Madonna, but according to this report, the Queen will live.

Our very own Dorian Grey

The first (high-resolution!) stills from the upcoming and highly-anticipated film version of Wilde's "The Picture of Dorian Grey" have emerged! They feature Colin Firth, Emilia Fox and Ben "Prince Caspian" Barnes as the title character. The movie is expected to be a more darker, more faithful adaptation of the book than its predecessors. Click here for the pics.

Britney Spears


Here we go again.

I am very sorry about the little break the writer of this blog took, but I promise it's got more to do with his many obligations than his laziness. And I have just the right post to return with. Se, Britney Spears knows a thing or two about comebacks (since she's had, like, three). Anyways, the last in line is in a form of her new video for the upcoming single "Womanizer." The video itself is nothing special, really - it's basically "Toxic" no.2, with some "I'm a Slave 4 U" thrown in for good measure. In other words, the new and improved Britney is actually the old and tested Britney (only naked). And maybe that's a good thing. See the video here.

Emma Watson

Sunday, September 21, 2008


Look at our little Hermione!

Wow, Ron Weasley's chick is all grown up! After wrapping up the shoot for "Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince", Emma Watson found some time to pose for Harper's Bazaar. We all knew she liked fashion when she was seen at the London Fashion Week, but who knew this girl could show it off? Here are the fabulous (and quite exclusive!) new Hogwarts-inspired photographs where Emma is wearing everything from Alexander McQueen to Vivienne Westwood!

Katie Holmes

Friday, September 19, 2008


Causing a riot!

Wow, Katie Holmes sure had a fun Thursday night! The play "All My Sons" featured Holmes' Broadway debut, and she has so far got the best reviews imaginable. The preview performance sold out, and attracted both Tom Cruise and Dustin Hoffman, and they both caused quite a stir at the theatre - especially after the anti-Scientology protest began in front! Full story here.

Hilary Swank


Hospitalized!

The two-time Oscar winner and Calvin Klein model, Hilary Swank, went to see the doctor since she was feeling some discomfort, and he immediately rushed her to a surgery in order to remove a small benign growth. Fortunately, her condition is now stable. For details, click here.

Lindsay Lohan

Wednesday, September 17, 2008


Not Obama-friendly

Lindsay Lohan has recently been very outspoken about politics, most recently calling Sarah Palin "a narrow-minded, media-obsessed homophobe". And now she was also eager to help promote the Democratic nominee, Barack Obama, but that he firmly but politely, said no. Of course, everybody had something to say. The ever-annoying Michael Lohan actually said something humorous - "Everyone is entitled to an opinion and so is Obama and his staff. Then again, you know what they say about opinions." Full story here.

M.I.A.


M.I.A. goes Stefani!

It seems like nowadays, it's not enough if an artist can just sing or play an instrument. Now people expect that they can write children's books, be politically active or even run for president. M.I.A. obviously felt the same way, and launched her own line of clothing with every possible color imaginable + some leopard prints. Omg.

Paris Hilton


The lonely Hilton!

If you've been wondering what the world's most famous heiress and soon-to-be-president has been up to, here's some scoop: Paris was window-shopping for a new best friend. The latest MTV reality show, "Paris Hilton's My New Best Friend" is finished and ready to air, and Paris now has a new bff, who is "hot, loyal and paparazzi-ready". Go figure.

Fran Drescher

Tuesday, September 16, 2008


The closet-tidying nanny!

Fran Drescher, who never should have become a celebrity in the first place, but then got lucky and made one funny TV show, is now a gay rights activist. And no, she's not getting married, but joining her ex-husband in an effort to preserve the gay rights in California. Full story here.

Ricky Martin


Daddy Martin

I'm a bit behind with my blog posts and celebrity news, but I do manage to cover most of the important stuff as soon as they happen. This wasn't the case with the obviously gay Ricky Martin becoming a dad. Whoa. He now has twin sons delivered a la carte by a surrogate mother, and they now live with their father. Go Ricky! Full story here.

Gwen Stefani

Makes hotels look fancy!

The trendy singer turned fashionista Gwen Stefani now designs stuff for hotel employees! The "mastermind" behind the "L.A.M.B." label (named after her debut solo album) has taken on the task of designing women's dresses for people working at the W hotels. Click here for the full story, or here if you want to see an exclusive sketch of the dresses.

Kanye West

Friday, September 12, 2008


Arrested!

Someone needs to take a chill pill! Apparently, Kanye West and his manager were arrested at an airport and are labeled with "felony vandalism"! A video leaked online, which shows West and his manager take a camera from a photographer and the photographer screaming "Police! Help me!" Then they destroyed the camera. Full story here.

Mischa Barton


Single again!

The annoying Mischa Barton has split up with her boyfriend Taylor Locke, after finding it impossible to balance work commitments and love life. And just so you know, she broke up with him. Poor Locke - imagine being dumped by someone who sports a personality of an oatmeal. Full story here.

Kylie Minogue

Thursday, September 11, 2008


Stuck in the closet

I guess it can be pretty difficult for superstar-gay-icons not to have a taste of what it's like out of the closet. Madonna pretty much came out some 10 years ago, and now here comes Kylie Minogue, who must have been pretty pissed when she wasn't in the recent top ten women lesbians would love to love poll. She has been quoted saying how she might turn gay, since there is a lack of man-lovin' in her life. Gimme a break.

James Franco


Franco is a wannabe, Murphy is a sell-out

Here comes another idiotic campaign for the new fragrance "Gucci by Gucci Pour Homme". It features the wannabe superstar James Franco, the actor they call whenever Orlando Bloom's cell is switched off. Anyway, the only good thing about this commercial is the soundtrack featuring the fashion-forward diva of the moment, Róisín Murphy. Check out the ad below.



Marc Jacobs

Wednesday, September 10, 2008


Mr. Exclusive

Although previous parties thrown by designer Marc Jacobs had been really relaxed, his most recent one had people either rolling their eyes or staring in disbelief. First, the bitchy Kirsten Dunst and her BFF Sophia Coppola started eating before the party even began. Then, celebrities such as Elijah Wood and Winona Ryder were pushed and shoved while trying to enter the VIP area. Read more about it here.

Rachel Weisz


Look at Rachel go!

Don't you just love stupid polls? "The Mummy" actress Rachel Weisz has been rated the number one woman lesbians would love to love! Way to go, Rachel! Crack open the champaign! Other celebrities who impress lesbians include Keira Knightley, Catherine Zeta Jones and the recent mom, Minnie Driver. For the details, click here.

Beyonce


The new album

The new album by the famous albino Beyonce is set to drop on November 18. The follow up to "B-Day" will feature a duet with Justin Timberlake. However, before the album drops, you will be able to hear the first two singles, "If I Were a Boy" and "Single Ladies".

Minnie Driver

Tuesday, September 9, 2008


Minnie Driver is a mom!

Minnie Driver delivers a baby boy! This is the first child for the 38-year-old actress, singer and songwriter. The baby's full name is Henry Story Driver. However, Minnie refuses to share the identity of the father, but she did say he was English and willing to participate in the upbringing of little Henry. More here.

Idina Menzel

Monday, September 8, 2008


On tour!

The gem of Broadway, Idina Menzel, is going on a tour! She will be performing in American cities such as Cleveland, Toronto and Madison, but will also visit her fans in London, in order to promote her latest album, entitled "I Stand", while also performing her "Wicked" show-stopper "Defying Gravity". Dates can be found here, and here are all the tour details.


Britney Spears


The female Jesus Christ

Britney Spears has been nicknamed the "female Jesus Christ" after she picked up three prestigious awards at the 2008 VMAs. It began with a pre-taped intro (check it out here) featuring Jonah Hill of "Superbad", after which Britney appeared on-stage, looking great in a Versaci dress. She thanked God, her family and fans and went on to receive three (!) "Moonman" statues. More about it here.

Kirsten Dunst

Sunday, September 7, 2008


How to alienate people

Actress Kirsten Dunst has been acting kind of bitchy lately. On the set of her upcoming film, "How To Lose Friends and Alienate People", she has reportedly acted as a drama princess, ultimately managing to ban the writer Toby Young from the set. Young, the author of the book the movie is based on, told the press he gave some advices to the producers on how Dunst's character should be interpreted, which the actress overheard and misunderstood as criticism. Jeez, someone needs to take a chill pill. Full story here.

Sting


Sting is your Guitar Hero

The new face of the megahot "Guitar Hero" video game franchise is Sting! Sting has agreed to appear in the new edition of "Hero", entitled "Guitar Hero: World Tour". The game allows you to play as Sting or alongside him, record your jam sessions and go on tours together. More about it here.

Keri Hilson

Saturday, September 6, 2008


The "shitty" debut album

The successfull songwriter and occasional back-up singer is wrapping up her debut album. Hilson, who has written songs for the likes of Jesse McCartney, Usher, Ludacris, Mary J. Blige and Britney Spears, describes her Timbaland-produced album as a bit more r'n'b than one might expect. She also adds that what's missing most from today's popular music is realistic, emotional spin, or as she eloquently put it - "You don't have to walk around like your shit doesn't stink". Full story here.

Jermaine Dupri


"Star-studded" party!

The potty-mouthed producer and sometimes-rapper Jermaine Dupri, has hosted one of the big pre-VMAs parties. He had described it as 'star-studded', only there weren't that many stars, and the few that were there, aren't that popular anyway - Taye Diggs, Fabulous, and that's about it. Irregardless, the party was reportedly a successful one. Full story here.

Britney Spears

Friday, September 5, 2008


Shocking revelations (sort of)!

It looks like "tell-all" books are all the rage nowadays! After a pretty controversial book written on the subject of Madonna, here comes one about her "Me Against the Music" colleague. Lynne Spears has written an "evangelical book about parenthood". And I'm guessing Mrs. Spears didn't think it would sell enough copies if it didn't include juicy details concerning Britney's childhood. Turns out Britney started drinking alcohol at 13 and experimenting with drugs by the time she was 16! Also, she tricked Justin Timberlake about being a virgin, after she lost her virginity while still in high school! Want more? Click here.

Rufus Wainwright


Premiering in the UK after all

Rufus Wainwright called off the premiere of his opera in New York. Why? The language of the libretto was in question! The pop singer's self-penned opera "Prima Donna" is already written in French, and it looks like he has changed his mind about translating it into any other language. More about "Prima Donna" here.

MTV Video Music Awards

Thursday, September 4, 2008


VMAs rumors!

In anticipation of one of MTV's biggest annual events, we provide you with gossip regarding the upcoming MTV Video Music Awards, popularly known as VMAs in a nutshell. First of all, disappointing news for fans of Britney Spears is that she will probably NOT perform as rumored (after causing quite a stir last year). She will appear though, but the star of the show will undoubtedly be Christina Aguilera, who will sing on television for the first time since she gave birth to her son in January. Other bands and artists involved are P!nk, Jonas Brothers, Kid Rock and T.I. The evening will be hosted by the British comedian Russel Brand. More details here.

Anthony Rapp


One-man show

Anthony Rapp's new show is opening in Pittsburgh. The one-man show called "Without You" is based on his best-selling memoir of the same name, and features a live band. In the show, Anthony speaks about his "Rent" days, and sings both the songs from the groundbreaking musical, and his own. Full story here.

Anne Hathaway


Oscar buzz!

Anne Hathaway generated a lot of nods at the Venice Festival with her latest film, "Rachel Getting Married" and is an early favorite for the Oscars. The movie was directed by Jonathan Demme, whose previous efforts include "Philadelphia" and "Silence of the Lambs." Hathaway admitted this character was much more mature and demanding to bring to life than her previous roles in movies such as "The Princess Diaries" and "The Devil Wears Prada." Read more about it here.

Christina Aguilera

Wednesday, September 3, 2008


Christina smells good

Here's the ad for the new fragrance by Christina Aguilera, named "Inspire". I didn't quite like her previous, self-titled fragrance effort, but I must confess the advertisement for "Inspire" is beautiful. Clearly, she actually put some effort into it, unlike David and Victoria Beckham, whose advertisement for their new fragrance "Signature" is just plain stupid. Check out the ads below.





Digg!

Madonna


Sticky and cheap

The Queen of pop is threatened to be left alone on her "Sticky and Sweet" tour! Her crew is very dissatisfied with the amount of money invested in their hotel rooms and airplane seats. Turns out Madonna is enjoying all the luxurious perks her stardom can get her, paying no attention to how her crew is being treated. Now several of them are thinking to walk away if nothing improves. Full story here.

Digg!

Usher

Tuesday, September 2, 2008


Ladies only tour!

Usher plans to organize his upcoming "One Night Stand" tour as a series of "intimate" concerts attended by ladies only. Why? Because he feels it takes guts and real stardom to pull that off, and he seems to think highly of himself. Full story here.

Digg!

Helen Mirren


The Cocaine Queen

I know, right? Helen Mirren!? Sure! The 63-year-old actress is quoted saying that she experimented with pot and coke back in her partying days. AND, she also used to shoplift!Now, that's what I call juicy! Full story here.

Guy Ritchie

Sunday, August 31, 2008


"Till Death Do Us Part"...

...is a title of an old Madonna song, and it looks like she knew what she was singing about. After rumors spread about the celebrity couple's fights and the potential break-up, Guy Ritchie cleared the air by publicly saying he and Madonna will not renew their vows, as there is no need for that. He also spoke about the birthday party Madonna was given, which reportedly cost $200,000. More about this can be found here. Also, Guy Ritchie has been seen at the pub he owns, with *gasp*, his sons Rocco (8) and David (2). And although their nanny was present, this whole hoopla reeks of Jude Law.

Karl Lagerfeld


Playing easy-to-get!

One of the most influential and important designers, Karl Lagerfeld, gets cuddly! A teddy-bear inspired by this fashionable big-shot will soon be released. Karl himself designed the toy, and the manufacturer Margarete Steiff is entrusted to produce the first couture teddy bear. To see the teddy-bear in question and read the whole story, click here.

David Duchovny

Friday, August 29, 2008


The Sex-Files

David Duchovni, the star of such shows as "The X-Files" and "Californication" (currently airing on Showtime) has voluntarily signed up for a therapy in order to cure his sex addiction. He has issued a statement begging the media for privacy, while he and his wife (actress Tea Leoni) deal with this "issue". Whatever. I honestly believe there is no such thing as addiction to sex. It is more likely Leoni decided to lock her husband away while she's dealing with menopause. Full story here.

Lindsay Lohan

Thursday, August 28, 2008


Ronson drama!

Ooh, this is juicy! Seems like Michael Lohan, the estranged father of LiLo (yet very present in the media), who until yesterday applauded Lindsay's relationship with Samantha Ronson, has now very loudly criticized his daughter's taste in women. He has said naughty stuff about Ronson, like using Lindsay to become famous (probably true) and has even created a rumor that Ronson is writing a "tell-all" book about Lindsay and herself (definitely not true, who in the world would buy that?!). And now Ronson has published a very heated blog post on her MySpace page, where she claims she has no need to defend herself... Umm, why write a blog then? But I think the best reaction comes from Lindsay herself, who also blogged, but stayed true to the rules of showbiz - and managed to promote her song "Confessions of a Broken Heart" in her post. Kudos. To read a more detailed story, click here, and to read the blog posted by Ronson, click here.

t.A.T.u.


t.A.T.u. are the new faces of Marc Jacobs

The controversial designer hired a controversial band to promote his new Autumn/Fall 2008. collection. The girls are controversial because they pretended to be underage lesbians some 10 years ago. He is controversial because he stuffed Victoria Beckham in a shopping bag last year. I can't wait! Full story here.

Nicolette Sheridan

Wednesday, August 27, 2008


The wedding is off

The star of "Desperate Housewives", Nicolette Sheridan, broke up with her fiancé Michael Bolton on "amicable terms". Since they have been engaged since March 2006, I say we should have seen this coming. Nicolette seems to me very much like her "Desperate Housewives" character Edie Britt, so this comes as no surprise. Besides, if she indeed is anything like Edie, she'll be just fine. She is one tough cookie. Full story here.

Ellen Degeneres

Tuesday, August 26, 2008


Back to Kodak!

The recently wedded comedian Ellen Degeneres is the last in the long line of ultra-celebrities who have been scheduled to appear at an event organized to raise awareness about cancer. Celebrities who are also slated to attend are Scarlett Johansson, Jennifer Aniston, Kirsten Dunst, Meryl Streep, Christina Applegate, Charlize Theron, and many others. And if this reminded you of the Oscars, just wait until you find out the event is being held at the Kodak Theatre! Full story here.

Cher


Cher to play "Catwoman"?!

Heath Ledger hasn't yet got an Oscar nomination, and the studio executives are already thinking about the next installment of the re-invented "Batman" series. And guess who they want to play the sexy, mysterious, (semi)femme-fatale Catwoman? Cher! Sure, she's won an Oscar, but she's 62 for crying out loud! And no, I also wouldn't want to bring back Halle Berry, but why not Michelle Pfeiffer? And more importantly, why Cher?! Full story here.

Brangelina


Their children eligible for financial aid?

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie's six children are eligible to receive $2,600 a month! It turns out the French have a very good social care system when it comes to things such as "nanny payment" and "orphan allowance". And the best part is - you get it regardless of your financial status! And since Brad registered their kids in France, the brats are eligible! Full story here.

Janice Dickinson


Mrs. Competitive

I love this. Janice Dickinson appeared at some fashion event in order to promote the upcoming season of "Janice Dickinson Modeling Agency", and someone asked her about transsexuals (just in case you didn't know, transsexuals are all the rage in Hollywood these days). Janice replied that she already went tranny in her first season, and that it was quite expected Tyra Banks would knock her off at some point. I love Janice, she is such an inspiration. :)

Felicity Huffman

Monday, August 25, 2008


A piece of Madonna

Wow, looks like the women of Wisteria Lane are really desperate to be in the news today! After the rather serious story on Teri Hatcher, comes a lighter one about her "Desperate Housewives" co-star, Felicity Huffman. Huffman has recently stated in the interview that she tried on Madonna's (used, I presume) underwear, while filling in for the Material Girl on Broadway. For the whole story, click here.

Teri Hatcher



Hatcher's uncle dies in prison

Although this may sound like a plotline out of "Desperate Housewives", it's 100% true. Teri Hatcher, the star of one of the most popular shows on TV and many low-budget flops, was abused as a child by her uncle. This guy then went on to molest two other girls, until he was finally arrested and imprisoned for 14 years. Now that he is dead, Teri commented on the situation, adding she was abused when she was only five years old. Full story here.
