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

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


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

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. 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

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


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.


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

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.

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

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 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

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.



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.



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.


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.
