Show their dislike of the "fur tramps" and the "fur hags from hell"
Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen were on hand for an in-store booksigning at Borders book store in Westwood, CA last night signing copies of their new book Influence for the waiting throngs of fans. Unfortch for the twins, their fans weren’t the only folks who showed up for last night’s in-store appearance. A group of protesters from People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals came out for the event to protest the girls’ love of fur. Here are a couple pics of the Olsens trying to make their getaway and some of the protesters displaying their signs:
Man, PETA is showing no signs that they have any plans to let the Olsen twins off the hook for their love of fur. It’s been a few months since PETA launched their Meet the Trollsen Twins website and it looks like the anti-Olsen campaign is still going strong. I understand that the twins were targeted at their NYC in-store appearance a couple of weeks ago as well. Now, I’m not the biggest fan of the Olsens (well, I’m not much of a fan at all) but even I feel bad that the little munchkins are bearing the brunt of this anti-fur campaign alone. Meh, I’m sure I’ll get over it, tho.

L. Ron in London
Lindsay Lohan, who confesses to Harper’s Bazaar magazine this month that she is INDEED in a relationship with Samantha Ronson, has made her way to London, England this week and happened to bring along with her, you guessed it, Samantha Ronson. The ladies who have been inseparable since, like, forever managed to cause a mild stir upon arrival in England … here are a few pics:
Almost as soon as L. Ron touched down in Londontown they hit the streets in search of supplies to get themselves situated … and they happened to do so lookin’ adorably cute together all the while. No word on what brings the happy couple to London but I predict that Linds may be doing some promo work for her new leggings line while they are in Europe. Hopefully the ladies will be able to sneak in some alone-time together as well. Treat ‘em well, London!

For old time's sake
It’s been about a year since last we saw Kimberly Stewart, the often tragic-looking daughter of aging rocker Rod Stewart, around here on the blog — which is a good thing, IMHO — but homegirl surfaced in London, England last night and decided to wave hello to the paparazzi who were interested in photographing her. Old skool Pink is the new Blog readers may remember that Kim and all her tragedy was a semi-regular fixture on the blog but has since fallen off my radar … so today I figured, What the Hell:
For those of you unfamiliar with my distaste for K. Stew allow me to enlighten. I’ve never particularly been a fan of the girl primarily because, to me, she reeked of a sad attempt to become Paris Hilton. Her ability to don the most fugly of fashions in public was another reason to poke fun at her. When she went on the record in an interview to call Jennifer Aniston “homely”, she pretty much became dead to me. That said … it pains me to admit that she appears to have cleaned up her appearance TENFOLD since she moved to London (and away from SoCal) and altho she seems to have moved on from trying to become Paris to trying to become Vicki B., I no longer find it even interesting to really poke fun at her any more. I guess barring any future arrests or (heaven forbid) embarrassing wardrobe malfunctions (**SHUDDER**) there really is no need to ever talk about the poor lamb again. I think it’s better that way. Here’s to a figurative Peace the Spork Out to Kim Stewart.

Bad Boy Gone Good
Game time! Can you guess who is hiding behind this ski mask and SWAT team-lookin’ outfit as he shoots scenes for upcoming eps of his not-as-popular-as-it-used-to-be TV series for NBC?
While you may be able to guess the TV series that I’m alluding to, it’s a bit harder to guess who is the man behind the mask. Be warned, the answer behind the cut may prove spoilery for some of y’all so if you think you know what TV show I’m talking about and are afraid you might be spoiled you might not want to take look.

He's so purdy
15-year old Miley Cyrus and her 20-year old manfriend and underwear model Justin Gaston attended the 56th Annual BMI Country Awards at the BMI Building in Nashville, TN last night … and while Miley was not on hand to collect any awards, she was on hand to show off her hawt date — behold:
I mean, who needs a stupid BMI Award when you get to go home (or wherever) with a hawt piece like Mr. Gaston? That being said, don’t y’all think he looks a lot older in this pic? I mean, Miley is really trying to look more mature with this dark eye make-up but Justin kinda looks like … her dad? By that I don’t mean that he looks like her actual dad, Billy Ray Cyrus (he wishes), but like a daddy-like figure. He does have a killer smile, tho … and is SO wrong for her, I think. I’m still not on board the Jiley train … are you?

Ho! Ho! Ho! No! No! No!
Vicki B, newly returned to SoCal from a quick trip to London, England, and her youngest son Cruz Beckham were spied doing a bit of shopping at The Grove here in LA yesterday afternoon … clearly the littlest Beckham is already ready for Xmas to come … here are a few pics of VB and “Santa” Cruz at the outdoor mall yesterday:
Blah! While I can’t fault the little guy’s excitement for the Xmas holiday to get here, I’m a bit grossed out at all the early Xmas decorations and preparations that have already sprung up around SoCal — since before Halloween! I kid you not, Target was already selling Xmas decorations even before Halloween took place. Ugh! The Grove is no exception, they’ve already erected their Santa Claus house there. With economic times being as tough as they have been lately, I doubt anyone really wants to be reminded that they have to get started on their Xmas shopping this year. While the children of celebs have nothing to worry about this coming Xmas season, I fear the same cannot be said for most people this year :( At least the Beckham boys are sure to have a Merry Xmas this year and that’s all that matters, right?

Also, a new 'Circus' promo pic hits the Internets
Britney Spears and her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James have gotten back to enjoying their vacay holiday in Kentwood, LA this week after dealing with their scary medical emergency a few days ago. You may recall that Britney‘s youngest son Jayden was rushed to the hospital after suffering an allergic reaction to something that he ate but was released just a day later once doctors could determine that he was totally fine. So, what’s the first thing that a family does after one of their youngest gets released from an overnight stay at the hospital? Why, they go to an alligator farm en masse to do a little bonding, of course. Here are a couple pics of Britney, her sister Jamie Lynn Spears and her youngest son Jayden James taking in the sights at an alligator farm in Hammond, Louisiana yesterday afternoon:
AWW, it’s really great to see little JJ lookin’ his usual cute self. As some of you may be aware, this trip to Louisiana is the first for Jayden so he prolly either really enjoyed/was really terrified of the alligators at the farm they visited. Since he comes from the stock of bayou people, I suspect he enjoyed the experience. Glad to see him back up and around.
Additionally, a new promo pic of Britney Spears has made its way to the Internets. After the jump, check out the newest Circus promo pic to hit the Interweb … More »

For an upcoming promo tour (and possible world tour?)
BritneySpears.com has been updated with a bunch of new insider photos from a recent casting session for her new troupe of dancers. Since Britney Spears has been in Kentwood, LA for the past few days, it’s clear that these photos were snapped here in LA before she left the State. Here are a few of the pics that were posted to her site today and some info about what is going on in the pics:
Yesterday we got a photo from an audition Britney held for an unknown upcoming project. Today BritneySpears.com has details about both the try-outs and what they were for! We just found out that over 70 super talented dancers came to a grueling audition for Britney’s new promotional tour. It was a really long day and the pressure was really on! After a few rounds of cuts the dancers finally got the chance to dance for Britney, Andre and his agents and show them all what they’ve got! So what was Britney looking for? Three new guys for her dance crew — a “womanizer” (of course!) and two “jester” types. We hear that the talent there was AMAZING, which means that Britney’s upcoming performances are going to be out of this world!!!
Man … I will never get tired of seeing Britney back in the swing of things. These photos look like they could’ve been snapped 8 years ago when she was casting dancers for her Oops! I Did It Again Tour. It’s a mighty nice sight seeing her manager Larry Rudolph by her side again … just like the good ol’ days. I think we are all very relieved that her son Jayden James‘s hospital scare is over and that the little guy is doing fine … now she can get back to enjoying her holiday in Louisiana. It looks like she’s got a lot more work ahead of her … hopefully she can use this downtime to recharge for the coming promo whirlwind ahead.
Another look at his 'Equus' performance
Daniel Radcliffe is well into his current run on Broadway as his play Equus continues to thrill audiences on a nightly basis. Y’all may recall that I was very fortunate enough to see the show for myself back in September and before that we were treated to a few covert (but not very clear) photos of Dan‘s nekkid scene on stage. This week, new and much clearer photos of Dan and his manhood have made their way to the Internets:
If you think you can handle all the NSFWness, you can see these uncensored pics behind the cut … AND there’s video! After the jump, check it out … More »
