A New Lady For Robert Pattinson?

Hide thine eyes, Bella Swan

Now that Twilight is a bona fide smash hit movie and has begun a movie franchise that will likely rule the box office for years to come, Robert Pattinson has instantly become something of a heartthrob. Millions of girls the world over dream of being with a guy like R. Pattz (er, well, actually with Pattinson‘s character Edward Cullen) so it makes sense that folks might interested in who he may be romantically involved with … like, say, this mysterious young lady who was seen sneaking out of the Chateau Marmont with Robert Pattinson last night after a night of revelry …


Is this just a friend thing? Is it more? And just who, pray tell, is this lovely young chicky hanging out with everyone’s favorite vamp du jour? HMMMMM?

BTW: I will be posting the winner of the Twilight Prize Pack contest on Thanksgiving Day :) Be on the lookout!

Amy Poehler Takes Archie Arnett For A Stroll

New Mom Alert

Here are a couple new pics of new mom Amy Poehler taking her newborn son Archibald William Emerson for a little stroll in NYC this week. I believe that this is the first time we’ve been able to see Amy out in public with the baby since she gave birth to her firstborn son with hubby Will Arnett last month … behold:


Boo … unfortch we don’t even get a glimpse of the little guy but, in Amy‘s defense, it looks cold and windy in NYC in these pics so it would make sense for her to keep little Archie all bundled up in his carriage. While I am sad that Amy has retired from Saturday Night Live, I am very excited at the prospect of her new job as full-time mommy. She rules! I am so glad to see her out and about again.

Pete Wentz Gets Back To Work, Films ‘FNMTV’

The new dad talks almost heart-attacks, exploding diapers and more

Pete Wentz, who became a proud new papa last Thursday night when his wife Ashlee Simpson gave birth to their son Bronx Mowgli, was back to work yesterday afternoon filming scenes for the upcoming new episode of his MTV music video show FNMTV. Additionally, Pete was an on-air guest with Ryan Seacrest this morning on KIIS FM here in SoCal and talked pretty extensively about the whole process of becoming a new parent — the pain that Ashlee went thru and the stress that he went thru. Here are a couple pics of Pete on the LA set of FNMTV yesterday and a report on his KIIS FM interview this morning:


Being in the delivery room shortly before Ashlee Simpson gave birth Nov. 20 was “pretty surreal,” Pete Wentz says in his first interview since welcoming son Bronx. “Obviously, some stuff my wife would freak if I said, but she’s pretty much a saint,” he said Tuesday on Ryan Seacrest’s KIIS-FM radio show. “Right before she went into labor, I was like, ‘Oh my God, I think I’m having a heart attack!’ Natural things start going on in your body,” Wentz went on. “My heart started beating really fast.” He explained, “You seen your wife in all this pain, and you really don’t know what’s happening.” But Ashlee “took care of me and made sure I was OK and then we went into labor,” Wentz told Seacrest. “That’s why she’s a saint. She’s a amazing girl. She was like, ‘I will make sure you’re OK,’” he added. “I didn’t even stop to think, ‘Well, you just had an epidural and you’re about to have a baby!’” When she had the baby, Wentz said that Ashlee remarked, “‘He’s beautiful. He’s perfect.’ We were instantly in love,” he said of the boy. “It’s impossible not to be!” He said his wife is doing “really good” right now. Wentz said he’s changed “quite a few” diapers already – even some “exploding” ones. As friends and family flock to get their first glimpse of Bronx, Wentz said, “Having a child is like opening a new spot in L.A. — everyone’s trying to get in every night!” Eventually, the Fall Out Boy bassist said Bronx “is definitely going to come out on tour. We need a whole team of stuff that is going to get him through that.” As for the unique moniker, Bronx Mowgli? He said he and Ashlee had been “throwing it back and forth a while ago. I feel weird because all these people have all these ideas on what it means … I don’t think anyone knows the real story of why or how.” [Jungle Book] author Rudyard Kipling is “really cool and The Jungle Book is something that me and Ashlee bonded over,” Wentz explained. Of fatherhood, he also noted, “It’s different when it happens. Your life is 100 percent different now – you want it to be different.”

Oh, Pete … despite the fact that you and Ash succumbed to the trend of wacky celebrity baby names, I have no doubt that you are going to be an amazing father. It is my sincere hope that you are able to shield and protect your son from the dangers and pitfalls that lie ahead (namely, Papa Joe Simpson) and teach your child to grow up strong, proud, true and sure of himself. I’m glad to see that Pete is back to work already, he’s got to keep on makin’ that cheddar so that he can lavish his child with everything his little newborn emo-punk heart desires. Best of luck to the Simpson-Wentz family for a long and happy life together. Click HERE to listen to Pete‘s entire interview with Ryan Seacrest online.

Britney Spears Takes Her ‘Circus’ To Europe

All eyes on me/In the center of the ring

Britney Spears caused a mild fracas yesterday afternoon when she arrived at LAX airport here in SoCal to catch a plane bound for Europe. Our dear Britney, whose new album Circus is streaming in full right HERE on Pink is the new Blog and who is featured on the cover of the new issue of Rolling Stone magazine, has made her way to Germany to do some promo work for her new album there before she makes her way to France to perform on Star Academy and then to London to perform on X-Factor. Homegirl has got a lot of work to take care of this week leading up to the release of her new album next Tuesday. Here are a few pics of Britney and her entourage upon arrival at LAX yesterday afternoon:


Although a long holiday weekend is right around the corner, Britney Spears is getting to work promoting her upcoming album, Circus, in Europe. The singer boarded a flight from Los Angeles to Frankfurt, Germany on Monday for several appearances in support of the album, which is scheduled to be released Dec. 2. Spears is traveling with several close associates and family members, including her father, Jamie, and manager Larry Rudolph. According to an eyewitness, the singer – dressed in a brown fedora, black sweatpants and a pink top – jumped out of her white Cadillac Escalade smiling and holding her dad’s hand at the airport. After a short time in Germany, Spears is expected to appear on the French program, Star Academy, and on Simon Cowell’s X Factor in England before returning to the U.S. next week. She is scheduled to go on a worldwide tour in the spring of next year.

Here we go. As I keep saying, I really hope that she is ready for the coming onslaught. There is a lot coming her way. I sincerely hope it all goes smoothly … successfully and, most of all … healthily for her.

The 2008 American Music Awards

Chris Brown, Alica Keys and 'Alvin & the Chipmunks' win awards

Last night the American Music Awards were handed out on live TV at the Nokia Theater here in Los Angeles, CA. Stars of varying importance made their way into downtown LA last night to walk the red carpet, participate in the show or mug for the cameras in the press room afterward. Chris Brown was one of the night’s big winnersKanye West was one of the night’s biggest wieners … and Beyoncé, bless her heart, gave the best live performance of the night. Here are a few pics from the red carpet arrivals last night:


Here are a few pics from the show itself:


Here are a few pics from the press room and some deets about what went down at this years AMAs:


Chris Brown was the big winner at the American Music Awards on Sunday night, surprising himself most of all. “I don’t know what to say. I would have given it to Coldplay,” said Brown, who won artist of the year, male pop/rock artist and male soul/R&B artist. Kanye West, still sore at losing male rap/hip-hop artist last year, won the trophy this time – then said Lil Wayne deserved it more. “I want to give this award to Wayne,” he said. “If it was last year it would have been my award.” It was West’s second trophy of the night, following his win for rap/hip-hop album, for Graduation. “It’s our responsibility as musicians to push music to the point it was in the ’60s and ’70s,” he said. “I want to be Elvis.” Host Jimmy Kimmel, who had made West’s ego a running joke, quipped: “Elvis died on the toilet with half a jelly doughnut in his mouth. You may want to rethink that.”

Um, why does Kanye have to be so douchey? I mean, seriously. It’s like he just cannot stop himself from acting like a total a-hole on the public stage. I just don’t get it.

The show climaxed with Keys performing “Superwoman” with Queen Latifah and opera star Kathleen Battle, and ending with a large photo projected on a screen of incoming first lady Michelle Obama. In a big night for American Idol alums, Daughtry – winner of three trophies last year – picked up another this year for pop/rock group, while former Idol champ Jordin Sparks won for adult contemporary music, and Carrie Underwood won for country album for Carnival Ride. Taylor Swift, uncomfortably sharing L.A.’s Nokia Theatre auditorium with ex-boyfriend Joe Jonas, won for female country artist, and Rihanna got two awards for pop/rock female artist and female soul R&B artist … Music’s A-listers were out in force as the show featured blockbuster performances by Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Beyoncé, Rihanna, West, birthday girl Miley Cyrus and Jonas Brothers, who also won the breakthrough artist award. And Justin Timberlake made a surprise appearance to introduce award of merit recipient Annie Lennox.

Much congrats to all the winners this year but, I gotta say, the “prestige” associated with winning an American Music Award seems to have diminished a bit — after all, the soundtrack to the movie Alvin and the Chipmunks took home an award last night.

For me, tho, the highlight was Beyoncé‘s live performance of her hit single Single Ladies (Put A Ring On It). Homegirl turned that mutha OUT! After the jump, watch video of her performance in full … More »

Alyson Hannigan & Alexis Denisof Take Their Baby Bump For A Walk

Bump Watch

Here are a couple new photos of the happily married Buffyverse parents-to-be Alyson Hannigan and Alexis Denisof taking their burgeoning little baby bump out for a stroll in Santa Monica, CA over the weekend. It’s only been about a month since Alyson and Alexis announced to the world that they are expecting their first child together and already Alyson is starting to show:


You may recall that Aly confessed that she is deffo planning on NOT naming her first born child Zuma and I suppose it can be assumed she’s prolly not going to name it Bronx Mowgli either. I suspect that Aly and Alexis are already kicking around possible names of the normal variety. Personally, they can name the baby whatever they like … I just can’t wait to see what their precious little bundle of joy is gonna look like. I’m telling you, this baby is going to be the cutest thing ever! I’m just so happy for them both … they look amazing :)

Lindsay Lohan Is The Bomb!

Flour power

A couple of weeks ago, we heard that Lindsay Lohan got pelted with a flour bomb by an animal rights activist (supposedly a member of People for the Ethical Rights of Animals) while she was trying to make her way into a French nightclub while she and girlfriend Samantha Ronson were in Paris, France. At the time, there were no photos or video of the incident … today, we have the LOL-worthy video. Here are a few screencaps of the incident:


U.S. actress Lindsay Lohan has been pelted with a flour bomb on arrival at a Paris nightclub wearing a fur stole. Animal rights activists showered the 22-year-old actress with flour when she went to the VIP Room Theatre in the early hours of Saturday with her friend, disc jockey Samantha Ronson. The owner of the nightclub helped Lohan dust off her blue sequined dress and black stole before she posed on the red carpet.

I understand that the rest of the night went off without a hitch, Sam was able to DJ successfully and Linds was able to par-tay:


In the video, Lindsay doesn’t actually say “Zut alors!” after she got bombed by the flour, she really said “Oh my god!” … and she didn’t actually get bombed so much as she had flour dumped on her … but the talk bubbles on the screencaps make for a more dramatic effect, no? After the jump, check out the video in full … More »

Nicole Richie & Joel Madden Flip The Xmas Switch In Bev Hills

It's the most wonderful time of the year

The happily coupled Nicole Richie and Joel Madden were on hand in Beverly Hills, CA last night to do the special honor of flipping the switch at the UNICEF and City of Beverly Hills 2008 Snowflake Lighting ceremony. Since being named as a Goodwill Ambassador by UNICEF back in July, duties like this fall to Joel and his equally charitable babymama Nicole … duties that the couple does take very seriously and suffer gladly. Here are a few pics from the event last night and some information about the event from a press release:


The U.S. Fund for UNICEF announced that Joel Madden, UNICEF Ambassador, and Nicole Richie will host UNICEF’s 2008 Beverly Hills Snowflake Lighting Ceremony on Saturday, November 22 at the intersection of Rodeo Drive and Wilshire Boulevard. The ceremony highlights the city of Beverly Hills’ “Light the Night” annual holiday event where the UNICEF Snowflake and the 20 Baccarat chandeliers that grace Rodeo Drive are illuminated to kick off the holiday season. Madden, lead vocalist for the critically acclaimed, platinum-album-selling band, Good Charlotte, was named UNICEF’s newest Goodwill Ambassador in July 2008 during CNN’s broadcast of “The Survival Project: One Child at a Time” and his first field visit as an official UNICEF Ambassador is scheduled for the fall. Richie is also no stranger to social and humanitarian causes as she and Madden recently formed the Richie-Madden Children’s Foundation, a charity which provides funding to groups focused on improving pediatric health, education and human rights, both domestically and abroad. “We are honored to have Joel and Nicole participate in the Beverly Hills lighting ceremony,” says Caryl Stern, President and Chief Executive Officer of the U.S. Fund for UNICEF. “With their tremendous commitment to UNICEF’s child survival mission, Joel and Nicole are the perfect people for UNICEF to share this meaningful tradition with” … Before Madden and Richie take the stage to flip the switch to illuminate the UNICEF Snowflake, guests will enjoy family activities and a visit from Santa Claus along Rodeo Drive. The evening will conclude with a spectacular fireworks display atop the Beverly Wilshire, a Four Seasons Hotel, which is home to the west coast UNICEF Snowflake. In conjunction with the lighting, the hotel has created the “Melted Snowflake,” a special drink in honor of the UNICEF Snowflake that will be served on the hot chocolate menu in The BLVD. Festivities begin at 3:00pm with the official lighting at 6:00pm.The UNICEF Snowflake Lighting is open to the public and the Snowflake will be illuminated for the entire holiday season serving as a beacon of hope, peace and compassion.

Aww … it sounds like a very nice ceremony. Altho Southern California isn’t the sort of place that many folks associate with a Winter Wonderland, it goes to show that the Xmas spirit can exist anywhere and the season can be celebrated anywhere. I just love how much time Nic/Joel devote to charitable events like this … Nicole, especially, has really turned her back on the wild and crazy days of youth and has matured into a responsible adult woman. Kudos to them both for all the work that they do and here’s to another year of charitable acts from Nic/Joel!

Beyoncé Becomes A ‘Diva’ For Her New Music Video

Diva Ladies (Put A Crown On It)

Beyoncé aka Sasha Fierce was spied shooting a new music video this weekend for her upcoming single Diva, presumably the next from her new album I Am … Sasha Fierce. Here are a few pics from the set of her new music video:


You will note from the photos on set that B was having a little fun with the accessories — from the Kanye West-like sunglasses to the crown she stole from the kid in Where the Wild Things Are to the robo-glove that she just can’t seem to get enough of — girl was workin’ it. I must say, tho, that I really love the song Diva. It is one of my fave tracks on Beyoncé‘s new album and I’m really looking forward to the finished product (wacky accoutrements notwithstanding). I could really do without the harsh eyebrows but … I guess we’ll see how things turn out, yes?
