I Can't Tell If This Is Wrong or Not
Teen heartthrob Justin Bieber has decided to appear in more mature photoshoots now that he’s just about to turn 17 years old … and that maturity, apparently, involves wearing less clothing than he usually wears in shoots. I’m not sure if y’all are ready for this but … Justin Bieber has gone shirtless, y’all. More »

A Couple of Hangers-On Tag Along
Late last month we got our first look at twin babies Harper Grace and Gideon Scott with their proud fathers Neil Patrick Harris and David Burtka in the pages of People magazine. Today we get to see the babies (kinda) enjoying a family stroll with their two dads and a couple of friends. The Burtka-Harris family braved the chilly SoCal rain yesterday to enjoy a family stroll … but the babies, bless their little hearts, were safely tucked out of sight inside their fathers’ shirts and jackets.

The Usual Suspects
Last night the Screen Actors Guild Awards were handed out at The Shrine Auditorium here in Los Angeles, CA in the midst of awards season and, as you might expect, the same sort of folks who have been winning awards at previous award shows continued their streak last night. But, while it seemed like The Social Network was the film to beat for Best Picture, it’s becoming a bit more evident that The King’s Speech has taken the front-running position. Even still, films like Black Swan and The Fighter were honored as well. More »

The Sincerest Form of Flattery
Remember that “fake leaked photo” that we saw last weekend that was supposedly from the set of Britney Spears‘s new music video for Hold It Against Me? Well, it turns out that the photo did come from the set of Hold It Against Me but NOT from Britney Spears‘s version of the video. Ryan James Yezak filmed his own version of HIAM the very same weekend that Britney filmed hers … but unlike Britney‘s, his video has been released. More »
For Serious or For Show?
Earlier today we learned that troubled actor David Arquette checked himself out of rehab after 3 weeks of treatment and right now we learn that the more troubled actor Charlie Sheen has committed himself to 3 months of rehab treatment. As you may recall, Sheen checked himself into rehab on Friday after he was famously hospitalized the morning after a 36-hour drug-fueled porno party at his home. I believe this 3 month stint in rehab will be his most significant voluntary commitment to his rehabilitation. More »

Well that was fast … back in November we learned that married couple Eva Longoria and Tony Parker decided to end their marriage and just a few days later, decided to officially file for divorce in Texas (the State where the couple signed their pre-nuptial agreement before they were wed 3 years ago).

Last night, David and I enjoyed an impromptu Date Night together so we decided to see a movie … a movie about a non-believing seminary student who gets a crash course in exorcism as a way to make him believe in God. Yes, just your usual romantic fare. We decided to see The Rite (which was David’s choice) and I have to say, the film turned out a lot better than I expected and we both had a pretty fun time watching the kinda cheesy flick. More »

Britney's Assistant/BFF Got Hitched!
Earlier today we saw photos of Britney Spears and her beau Jason Trawick partying at a nightclub in Miami, FL last night. At the time, I wasn’t entirely sure why Britwick made their way to Miami in the first place. Pink reader Jadedkitten gave me the head’s up that Britney, Jason and Larry Rudolph (Britney‘s longtime manager) made their way to Miami to attend the wedding of Britney‘s BFF assistant Brett Miller to fiancée Frank Lionetti!

But Nicki Minaj was the TRUE guest star on 'SNL' last night
Earlier this week we saw promo videos released by Saturday Night Live that promoted guest host Jesse Eisenberg on last night’s ep of SNL. At the time, it occurred to me that Jesse might have a guest star pop up on the show to lend him a hand. I was certain that Justin Timberlake would be the one to make a cameo but it occurred to me that Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg might be cool enough to show up. It turns that he was, Zuckerberg came out during the opening monologue much to everyone’s surprise. More »

David and I spent a quiet night at home last night. I toyed with the idea of going out but I recently picked up a LOAD of great LP records so I thought it would be fun to just stay home and listen to some of them. Homogenic by Björk is one of my all-time favorite albums so I was thrilled to find it on vinyl. I also indulged my hair metal sweet tooth with Def Leppard‘s Hysteria and my inner-goth child with the Bauhaus single Bela Lugosi’s Dead. More »

The Double Standard
On Thursday night, MTV aired an episode of Jersey Shore where Sammi Sweetheart Giancola punched her boyfriend Ronnie Ortiz-Magro in the face. For weeks leading up to last night’s episode, MTV heavily promoted the punching scene as a way to lure viewers to tune in. Last year, MTV did the same thing with a scene from Jersey Shore‘s premiere season where Nicole Snooki Polizzi was punched in the face … until outrage and complaints began to come in about MTV‘s seeming endorsement of physical violence against women. MTV pulled the scene and issued a PSA against physical violence toward women … this time around, MTV offered no such PSA about physical violence against men. More »

"I have never been outed by anyone but myself."
Last week former popstar turned actress Tiffany accidentally outed New Kids on the Block singer Jonathan Knight as gay on national television here in the US. Tiffany‘s outing came almost 2 years after an ex-boyfriend of Knight‘s outed him in the pages of The National Enquirer. In the wake of both incidents, Jonathan Knight neither confirmed nor denied that he was gay … until now. Jonathan posted a blog on his official website that, once and for all, publicly acknowledges the fact that he is a gay man. More »

Sheen Publicly Declares, "I'm Fine!"
Dude … you’ve got to be in serious trouble if Lindsay Lohan is voicing concern over your health and safety … that is the position that troubled actor Charlie Sheen finds himself in these days. As you may recall, we awoke Thursday morning to the news that Charlie Sheen was rushed to the emergency room with “stomach pains” after it was later revealed that Sheen had been on a 36-hour drug-fueled party bender with a group of porn stars at his home. Yesterday afternoon, it was reported that Charlie Sheen checked himself in to rehab. In light of all of this crazy drama, L. Lo has reportedly expressed to friends that she is worried about Sheen.

The Supposedly Rehabbed Gummi Bear Gets Popped For Drug Possession
Jason Davis, older brother of Brandon Davis [the guy who popularized the term Firecrotch in honor of Lindsay Lohan] who is famous only because of his wealth and his tragic substance abuse issues, was arrested in Newport Beach, CA last night on charges of — you guessed it — drug possession. I understand that Davis is a “graduate” of Dr. Drew‘s Celebrity Rehab TV show … which doesn’t seem to be a very good endorsement for Dr. Drew‘s treatment techniques. More »

The 5th season of the UK series Skins premiered on E4 last night, introducing a new cast of characters on the show. As you may know, MTV premiered the US version of Skins a couple of weeks ago which, IMHO, is just an embarrassingly bad copy of the far superior original series. I was able to watch last night’s premiere of Skins online and was immediately impressed with the episode in the first 2 minutes. The show is that good. More »

Last night Bravo TV aired part 1 of the reunion special of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills … and while the ep was juicy fun to watch, it appears that the real dirt is being saved for part 2 of the reunion special scheduled to air next Tuesday. The show has been teasing the possibility that castmember Kim Richards has a substance abuse problem (and it appears that that subject will be discussed on Tuesday’s episode) but today we get to see video provided by TMZ of Kim very obviously so inebriated at an airport this past Summer that she was not allowed to fly.

Last month we got our first look at a new comic book devoted to the life of Britney Spears titled Fame: Britney Spears. Today we get to check out a few preview pages of the book which is due for release in March.
From Mousekateer to pop princess to tabloid fodder to redemption, the peaks and valleys of the life of Britney Spears are examined in Bluewater Productions’ latest biography comic book release, “Fame: Britney Spears.” Scheduled for a March 2011 release, the 32-page bio title covers most of the public spectacle a casual reader might expect. Her meteoric rise to superstardom and her harrowing difficulties stemming from her private life. However, the book looks to delve beyond the salacious headlines. “She is far more complicated than most people realize. No matter what preconceptions you have about her, there will always be more layers and surprises,” said issue author Patrick McCray. “Beyond the performer, there is a real human being there, struggling for a real life, struggling to connect with her art, and struggling to be understood.” According to publisher Darren G. Davis, Spears’ life reflects the core of what the “Fame” line of biography titles tries to achieve. “She was created in the Internet Age to be put on a pedestal, but no one can stand the glaring lights of celebrity that intensely. The title seeks to find the person within.” The title, written by McCray, was penciled by Ricardo Jaime who also provided the cover art. The issue will retail for $3.99 and be available through most online venues like Amazon.com as well as local comic book stores. “The only downside about writing the book was having to stop. This could have easily been a twelve-issue series and never gotten dull,” McCray added.
OMG, I love this so much. While I must agree with the publisher that the life of a LIVING LEGEND cannot be relegated to a single-issue comic book, I applaud Bluewater Productions for trying. If you would like to preorder your copy, you can do so HERE. Check out the fun preview photos from the soon-to-be released issue of Fame: Britney Spears below.
"It's out there in the ether."
Extra! TV caught up with True Blood star Joe Manganiello this week and asked him point blank about the rumors that he may be playing Clark Kent/Superman in the Zack Snyder-directed reboot of Superman. Truth be told, I hadn’t heard the rumor that Joe was up for the role but I am intrigued by the idea. I’m also intrigued by the way that Joe responded to the questions about the possibility of playing The Man of Steel. More »

I kept things pretty low key yesterday. After 5 straight nights out on the town last week and into the weekend, I decided I needed a day off. Waking up with a sore throat was not fun but I did manage to fend it off for the rest of the day (God Bless, Luden’s). Because I stayed home all day, I got caught up on some TV, watched a few movies and — of course — spun a few records. More »

It's About DAMN Time!
Once upon a time, the sight of Matthew McConaughey wearing very little clothing was a semi-daily occurrence. Then, he started having babies with Camila Alves … the clothes got put on … and stayed on. But every once in a while, Matthew strips down again to remind us all of the bounty we used to enjoy. This weekend, Matthew went for a shirtless jog along the beach here in SoCal … and he was lookin’ pretty damn good.
Blame it on the warm weather, blame on his nostalgic need to strip down again … who cares? All that matters is that we get to see new photos of Matty boy in all his shirtless glory. And all is right with the world again.
