Despite plans to the contrary, I was NOT able to make my way down to San Diego, CA last night to see the amazing Dresden Dolls live in concert. Without going into the details that will likely enrage me again, I ran into a bit of car trouble last night and ended up staying here in LA instead. While I was very bummed that I missed the show, David went out of his way to cheer me up and make me feel better. And, boy, am I ready to say Goodbye to 2010. More »

UPDATE: Britney's Manager Now Casting Doubt on the Single's Release
On Wednesday we learned the EXCITING news, from Entertainment Weekly magazine, that our dear Britney Spears will be releasing the first single from her new album (due out in March) next Friday January, 7. But because so much incorrect information has been going around regarding Britney‘s new album, many people are choosing not to believe that report. Last night, Jive Records (Britney‘s record label) seemingly confirmed the news on their official Twitter profile … which, in my mind, makes it very official. More »

The Elephant in the Room
Brandy Norwood showed off her new tattoo on her official Twitter profile this week and inadvertently also showed off her ignorance of Hindu deities. For some reason, Brandy decided to get a tattoo of the Hindu god Ganesh on her wrist … despite the fact that she thought he was an Egyptian god. Fortunately for her, the tattoo turned out nicely but the fact that she didn’t even know what she was getting tattooed on her wrist seems silly and just plain dumb. More »

Last week we learned that Jersey Shore star Paul Pauly D DelVecchio managed to get an MTV show of his very own as the first JS castmember to go solo. Back in July we got our first look at Jenni Jwoww Farley‘s very own clothing line called Filthy Couture and all year long we’ve been hearing about how Mike The Situation Sorrentino has been cashing in on his JS fame with his own clothing line, book and work-out video.

He also prepares for the "End of Days"
Ashton Kutcher is featured on the cover and in the pages of the new issue of Men’s Fitness magazine and in his extremely kooky interview, he explains to the Men’s Fitness readers that he is in the process of prepping for the coming apocalypse, the proverbial End of Days. It’s not entirely clear if Kutcher‘s comments are tongue-in-cheek in nature or if he truly believes that the end is nigh but … it sure makes for an interesting read. More »
An old notebook/diary of Amy Winehouse‘s was recently discovered in a trash bin in the UK (along with a collection of other discarded school books) and pages from the diary have been made available on the all-seeing Internets. The diary, which is full of Winehouse‘s hopes, dreams and occasional lyrics, was written when Amy was only 17 years old (just before she hit it big with her first record contract). Altho the text is not groundbreaking, it is a very interesting look at a younger, more innocent Amy Winehouse. More »

In the past few days we’ve been hearing a lot about the divorce of Kelsey Grammer and his wife of 13 years Camille (who stars on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills). First we heard that Kelsey is lookin’ for a quickie divorce so that he can immediately marry his new fiancée Kayte Walsh, then we learned that it will cost him at least $50 million to divorce Camille … because he married with no pre-nuptial agreement.

Le sigh. The man does make a fine specimen of werewolfiness, don’t he? Altho we have many months ahead of waiting to do before the new season of True Blood is upon us, at least we get little treats like this from Cosmo to help us pass the time. Enjoy!!

Ri Ri goes jet-skiing as a Single Woman
Earlier today we learned that Rihanna and her LA Dodgers boyfriend Matt Kemp have called it quits after almost a year together. Right now we get to see a few photos of the newly single Rihanna having herself a grand time as she water-skis off the coast of her homeland in Barbados. Rihanna may not need a man but she sure looks happily attached to this jet-ski:
HMMM … something tells me that Rihanna is not crying any tears over the end of her relationship with Matt Kemp. As I mentioned before, my guess is that the couple — while happy for a while — weren’t really all that serious and only kept things going for as long as it was fun. Not every relationship has to be a life-long commitment … and more times than not, these sorts of relationships just naturally run their course. For now, Rihanna is single … and is prolly loving it! Jet-ski your troubles away, Ri Ri.

Snowpocalypses Can Be FUN!
While many New Yorkers are suffering under the weight of all the snow that has been dumped on them in the past few days, others have found ways to turn the Snowpocalypse into something fun. Sarah Jessica Parker, her hubby Matthew Broderick and their eldest son James Wilkie got out of the house yesterday and dived headlong into the snow … and had themselves a grand ol’ time.
When life hands you lemons, you turn them into lemonade … or in this case, when life dumps mounds and mounds of snow on you, you turn it into a fun snow day! It appears that all this snow was a bit too much for the Parker-Broderick twins to be playing in but it sure looks like James Wilkie had himself a blast. Check out the set of fun photos below … don’t you wish YOU had a Snowpocalypse to play in?

The Reason for the Season
Celebrities like Jennifer Love Hewitt, Alyssa Milano, Kate Linder (from The Young and the Restless) and Brandy joined a group of volunteers along with Santa Claus and Mrs. Claus yesterday to serve hot meals and pass out gifts to the less fortunate people of Los Angeles at the LA Mission. As you may recall, some of these same celeb volunteered at Thanksgiving to deliver meals to the homeless last month … and that same giving spirit inspired them to give of their time again for Xmas this weekend.

David and I made the brave decision to make our way to The Grove last night so that we could walk around the outdoor shopping center to take in the Xmas decorations, pick up a few last minute things and pretty much just hang out. Fortunately for us, the massive crowds weren’t an issue nor was the, thankfully, dry weather. No, when I was bleeding all over the floor at World Market not 10 minutes into our arrival, I knew it was going to be a special night. More »

It’s been quite some time since we’ve seen photos of Madonna and her younger toyboy Brahim Zaibat (not to be confused with her previous even younger toyboy Jesus Luz) so I was starting to think that Maddy had grown tired of babysitting this one and decided to move on to other pastures.

Your Daily Spidey Update
Another day, another no-go for the very troubled Broadway show Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. As you may recall, during the Monday night performance this week, an actor was injured after he fell 30 feet due to a failed stunt in the show. As a result, performances of Turn Off the Dark were canceled until safety inspections/inquires could be completed. On Tuesday, it was determined that the injury was due to “human error” and the show was given the green light to begin performances on Wednesday night. Shortly before the 8pm performance was due to start, audience members were greeted with a sign that informed them that last night’s performance had also been canceled. More »

Did you get to see many movies this year? I’m sure many of y’all saw Iron Man 2, Toy Story 3, Black Swan, The Social Network and Kick-Ass.

Tom Hardy, star of Inception and star of the upcoming Batman: The Dark Knight Rises, is hard at work this week filming a new movie titled Tinker, Tailor, Soldier, Spy. New photos of a very shirtless and blonde-wigged Hardy have been made available by the Facebook page Tom Hardy Admirers Across Continents THAAC. If you are Tom Hardy fan, they are worth a look see.
Ugh … even with this horrid wig, Hardy looks fiiiiine, don’t he? As you may recall, late last month we saw photos of Tom getting that Union Jack flag tattooed on his chest … it looks like it fits in well with his other tats, wouldn’t you say? I gotta say, I really REALLY love how much Tom Hardy likes walking around sans shirt … it’s a good look for him … one that I hope he never tires of. Woot!!
According to a source, yes she did.
Not to beat a dead horse or anything but … a new report about the sad break-up of married couple Scarlett Johansson and Ryan Reynolds caught my eye because it claims that the reason the couple decided to split was because Scarlett was just over being married to Ryan. For the longest time, I’ve been trying to figure out why these beautiful people just couldn’t make their marriage work … and if this new report is to be believed, it’s because Ryan wasn’t interesting enough to keep ScarJo‘s attention.
