Hugh Jackman Celebrates His 40th Birthday

Birthday Lurve for Hugh

Aussie hottie Hugh Jackman stepped out with his wife Deborra-Lee Furness in Syndey, Australia last night for a celebratory dinner in honor of Hugh‘s 40th birthday (which is today). The happy couple were joined by business partner John Palermo (not pictured) for dinner at the Royal Motorboat Club in Sydney. Here are a couple pics of Hugh and Deborra-Lee as they made their way into the venue:


First off, much birthday lurve goes out to Mr. Jackman on the occasion of his 40th bday. I must admit, if this is what 40 looks like then sign me up ;) I sincerely hope he has a great day and an amazing year to come. Now … as much as I love me some Hugh Jackman, I think it’s safe to assume that he is just a wee bit more lovable the less clothing that he is actually wearing. Hugh took his kids Oscar and Ava for a pre-birthday pool party on Friday afternoon … which, I’m sure you know, means the dress code was much less stringent than it is at the Royal Motorboat Club. After the jump, check out pics of Hugh is all his shirtless glory … More »

Jamie Lynn, Maddie Briann Do Some Shopping Together

Mother/Daughter Time

New mom Jamie Lynn Spears took her baby girl Maddie Briann for a mother/daughter shopping trip this weekend in her new home of McComb, MS. It looks like JL and MB managed to get in quite a bit of bonding time over bargain shopping at their friendly neighborhood Walmart store:


You know, in these tough economic times it makes total sense to be as frugal as possible when it comes to our shopping practices. While my discount store of choice is Target, I really can’t hate on JL for smartly recognizing that it is very wise to pinch as many pennies as possible. It really looks like she is settling into motherhood with some semblance of normalcy. While she may still get papped in Mississippi, I imagine that she is able to go thru her normal day much easier than she would if she lived in SoCal. And what was papa Casey Aldridge doing while his ladies where shopping at Walmart? After the jump, find out … More »

Prince Celebrates The Release Of His New Book

2 Funky 4 U

Prince was on hand at the Gansvoort Hotel in the Meat Packing District of NYC last night to play a celebratory concert for the release of his new coffee table book of photography/poetry/music/lyrics titled 21 Nights. 21 Nights features photography work by Randee St. Nicholas of Prince from his twenty one night residency at the O2 Arena in London, England last year. The book was released in bookstores last Tuesday (I already have my copy) and comes with an audio CD titled Indigo Nights/Live Sessions. Here are a few pics from Prince‘s performance last night:


Prince is always lookin’ for a reason to get his jam on and last night was no exception. I’ve been very fortunate to see the man in action at one of these scaled down, more intimate gigs and let me tell you, he turns the mother out. Now, about this book … I must confess that I am a bit disappointed with the photographic theme of the book. Some of the photos are amazing … but there are far too few of them. Some of the pics are of hotel hallways and empty Metro stations. I get that St. Nicholas is trying to tell a story with these photos (isolation, loneliness, etc.) but I was really hopin’ there’d be nothing but Prince within in the pages of this book. The CD is hot. It’s almost worth the price of the book itself. Die hard Prince fans (and completists) will not want to miss picking up this book. I don’t think, tho, that casual fans will be happy with it. I suggest you head on down to your local Barnes and Noble to look at the book before you buy it. I’m happy with my copy and am anxious to see the man live, in concert again.

Xtina Aguilera Takes The Family To London

Cheerio, bitches!

A fairly bundled up Xtina Aguilera and her son Max Liron were spotted making their way thru Heathrow International Airport in London, England this weekend … here are a couple of really cute pics:


I suspect Xtina and her family (hubby Jordan Bratman is with her and Max in London) have made their way to the other side of the pond in order to do some promo work for her new single and her album Keeps Gettin’ Better: A Decade of Hits. Yeah, Max is a little cutie … ain’t he just a doll?

GLSEN Knows R-E-S-P-E-C-T

The 4th Annual Respect Awards

Hilary Duff, Lance Bass, Jennie Garth and others were all on hand at the Beverly Hills Hotel in Beverly Hills, CA last night for the 4th Annual GLSEN Respect Awards hosted by the Gay, Lesbian, Straight Education Network. Darren Star, Disney/ABC Television and Lance Bass were the special honorees at last night’s event for their “commitment to all America’s students, regardless of sexual orientation and gender identity/expression”. Here are a few pics from the red carpet last night:


It’s great to see Hilary Duff so proudly supporting this amazing organization. You may recall that earlier this week we got to see her new GLSEN produced PSA that encourages young people to Think Before You Speak in order to curb curb bullying or threatening language aimed at LGBT youth. I am such a huge supporter of the GLSEN organization. They work so tirelessly to bring together straight allies with the LGBT community in order to foster inclusiveness so that, together, they are able to work towards ending bullying and hatespeak aimed at targeted youth. The Respect Awards annually celebrate those folks who work towards that inclusiveness. I am constantly surprised and impressed with the strides that are made in acceptance and inclusiveness among different groups of people in this country. Even tho there are still those who fear and vehemently oppose the equality of all citizens, the country seems to be moving towards inclusion rather than exclusion. It’s a long process and it is slow-going at times but we are getting there. It’s just really exciting, y’all :)

Don’t Flip Your Lids, Save Them

The 10th Annual 'Save Lids To Save Lives' Event

Sheryl Crow was the musical performer at Yoplait‘s 10th Annual Save Lids To Save Lives event at the Wiltern Theater here in LA last night and was joined by various celebs, including David Arquette and the Sex and the City ladies Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon. Here are a few pics from the event’s red carpet last night:


For the past decade, Yoplait has urged its customers to save the pink lids found on their yogurt bottles and send them back into the company who, in turn, converts those lids into a financial donation to breast cancer research. For each lid that they receive between September 1 and December 1, Yoplait will donate 10 cents to Susan G. Komen for the Cure through their Save Lids to Save Lives program. This is an amazing campaign that really shows that the company puts forth a great effort to encourage people to donate to breast cancer research. Last night’s event was a celebration of this campaign and hopefully inspires more people to save those lids and to send them in. You can click HERE for more information on the program.

Britney Spears Does Mommy Duty

Readies herself for a big weekend

Britney Spears was on hand this afternoon to pick up her children, Sean Preston and Jayden James, from their Encino, CA preschool. Presumably, Britney will be spending some time with the boys this weekend and was anxious to get the jump on her quality time with them:


It’s a pretty important weekend for our dear Britney. Not only is her new official website BritneySpears.com launching later on today (at the time of this posting, it goes live in 3 hours — 7PM PT/ET) but her new music video for Womanizer is also world premiering on ABC‘s 20/20 tonight (10PM PT/ET). While the world waits with bated breath for both of these occurrences, I sincerely doubt Brit and the boys will be doing anything other than spending quality time with her children … as it should be. Woot!

First Look: Robert Downey, Jr. As Sherlock Holmes

Elementary, my dear readers

Earlier this week we saw the first pics of Jude Law rockin’ his new mustache for his role as Watson in the upcoming Sherlock Holmes movie … today it’s Robert Downey, Jr‘s turn to show off his new look. Here is our first look at RDJ on the set of the new Guy Ritchie-directed film based on the famed Arthur Conan Doyle character which is currently filming in Central London … behold:


Despite the fact that these photos do not feature Sherlock Holmes with his trademark pipe, I really love these pics. I just know that RDJ is gonna make a great Sherlock. I’m really looking forward to the interplay between RDJ and Jude Law. I never pegged Jude as sidekick material but I think it’s gonna work. What do y’all think?

‘Quarantine’ Premieres In Hollywood

'[REC]' gets an American redux

Dexter star Jennifer Carpenter was on hand for the Hollywood premiere of her new movie Quarantine which was held at Knott’s Berry Farm (temporarily renamed Knott’s Scary Farm) in Beuna Park, CA last night. Quarantine is the US remake of the Spanish horror film [REC] (which is absolutely horrifying). Here are a few pics of Jennifer and Heroes star Dania Ramirez (who also stars in the film):


From everything that I’ve seen from previews of Quarantine, it looks like Tarantino pretty much made an exact replica of the original Spanish film … which is good, in my opinion. I’ve seen [REC] and I loved every second of it … it’s reminiscent of Cloverfield, which I also loved immensely. If Quarantine can be as good as the Spanish original, then I think that US audiences are gonna eat it up. I love Jennifer Carpenter on Dexter so I’m excited to see her in this new film. Dania Ramirez bugs me TO DEATH on Heroes but it’s more the fault of her character rather than her own. As long as she’s not crying black tears and inadvertently killing everyone — and then whining about it afterward — in this new movie, I think I can be cool with her ;) Quarantine is in theaters now!
