The Hottie and the Nottie
David Beckham and Marc Anthony left the wives at home last night and made their way out to the Staples Center together to cheer on the LA Lakers basketball team. While the photos aren’t particularly interesting in and of themselves, I am quite taken with the stark side-by-side comparison of the two men:
Seriously, if I were Marc Anthony I would never, ever want to be photographed next to David Beckham … ever. I’m just saying. BTW, the Lakers beat the Clippers 106-88.

Looks adorable while doing so
Here are a few adorable pics of Suri Holmes-Cruise keepin’ dry in rainy NYC this week by utilizing her cute ladybug umbrella:
I gotta say, even tho those terrible Rihanna Umbrella jokes are way over … like, way over … I think the sight of Suri with her little ladybug umbrella really makes me want to coo ella-ella-ella over all the cuteness. While I still have my doubts that this cute little child isn’t really a wind-up toy, I must admit that she is seriously the cutest.thing.ever. with umbrella in hand.

Becomes the 'Prints' of Planet Hollywood
Robert Pattinson, the star of the new movie Twilight, was on hand for a special ceremony in his honor at the Planet Hollywood eatery in Times Square NYC this week. Wearing a shirt ill-prepared to mask is perspirational tendencies, R. Pattz made funny faces as he left hand-print molds that will be on display at the movie memorabilia eatery. Here are a few pics from this week’s hand-print ceremony at Planet Hollywood:
Regarding the embarrassing pit stains, in Rob‘s defense … I suspect that the venue was not well ventilated and the lights from all the flashbulbs were prolly very hot. But … Ew! Meh, it happens to us all. The promo tour to get people amped up for the new Twilight movie carries on … and now rabid Twilighters have a new Mecca to travel to in order to worship their beloved Edward the Vampire incarnate. The film opens in theaters on November 21 and I gotta say, I’m curious to see if the film can live up to the hype.

Amy Winehouse, herself, is still on the loose
After spending almost a year behind bars after being convicted of attempting to pervert justice in the UK, Amy Winehouse‘s hubby Blake Fielder-Civil has been released from incarceration one month early on the condition that he spend a month in a rehab program. Amy, who has been going in and out of the hospital in the past few weeks, is currently out of the hospital and has been seen terrorizing the streets of London with a black make-up tear-stained face, lashing out at anyone who gets near her — oh, it must be Thursday:
Amy Winehouse’s husband was released from jail yesterday after almost a year behind bars for his part in a vicious assault on a pub landlord. Blake Fielder-Civil left Edmonds Hill prison in Suffolk at 8am looking pale and with his arms covered in red scars. The 26-year-old, who has fought a long battle with drug addiction, was not due to be released until next month but was freed after agreeing to attend rehab. Miss Winehouse herself was not there to meet him, leading to rumours of a rift between the pair. Winehouse, who left hospital on Monday after receiving ongoing treatment for a ‘chest infection’, looked far from jubilant as she emerged from the residence at 4pm this afternoon with make-up smeared across her face. She appeared to be in an agitated state, lunging at a photographer stationed outside her home shouting: “Who’s first? Who wants some?”. She refused to comment on her husband’s release. After attending a drugs and alcohol clinic Winehouse was pictured clutching a prescription and falling into a cab as she returned home, her face streaked with dirt and tears. A couple of hours later her father Mitch turned up at her flat and not long after a pizza delivery arrived. After they had eaten no-nonsense Mitch shepherded his subdued daughter to his cab. The singer appeared to have showered and to have changed her clothes after her father’s arrival. However, she was back to her erratic ways later in the evening, sucking on a male friend’s knuckle before later passing out in the back of a cab. Fielder-Civil was sentenced to 27 months in prison in July after assaulting barman James King, 36, outside a pub in East London and plotting to bribe him with £200,000 not to testify. He had already spent nine months in custody after his arrest in November last year. After leaving the prison, Fielder-Civil said: “Now all I want to do is see Amy. It’s tough inside – bloody horrible, but I’m out and that’s all that matters. It’s brilliant.” He added: “It’s welcome to the free world for me and Barack Obama.”
It remains to be seen if Blake has fully rehabilitated his criminal ways but a stint in rehab sounds like a cushy way to finish out one’s jail sentence. Amy, on the other hand, seriously needs to be locked away somewhere … seriously:
Whether or not there is a future for these two also remains to be seen. We’ll have to wait and see what happens after Blake gets released from rehab … you know, if Amy lives that long.

'Off the Wall', indeed
Michael Jackson, who has in recent weeks decided to come out of the hole he was hiding in for the past few years to enjoy the limelight of the paparazzi flashbulbs, was snapped doing a bit of shopping over the weekend at an establishment called Off the Wall which, as their sign says, specializes in selling “weird stuff” …
… clearly, Michael Jackson is this store’s target audience. It should also be noted that Michael Jackson‘s first album was also titled Off the Wall so … I mean, have you ever seen anything more perfect in all your life? Yeah … he’s weird.

The biz of cooing and shopping together, that is
Miley Cyrus, who just returned to SoCal after another quick promo trip to Europe over the weekend, reunited with her 20-year old manfriend and underwear model Justin Gaston for a little shopping trip in Burbank, CA this week. The couple made their way into Best Buy where JG had to pick up a few DVDs …
… how much you wanna bet that that Cyrus butt-kisser purchased a new copy of the Hannah Montana Movie cuz he wore out his previous copy? Something tells me that Justin Gaston is going to keep his trailer hitched to Miley‘s rising star until he is able to break free on his own. Blah, it sounds like tough, sad work but I suspect he’s up to the challenge.

Keepin' it on the downlow
Lookie, lookie … it appears that the rekindled romance betwixt Jennifer Aniston and John Mayer is still goin’ strong these days. Mayerston have been romantically reunited for a few weeks now but have managed to stay under wraps pretty successfully in that time. The couple were spotted in close physical proximity out in public a couple of weeks ago in order to celebrate John‘s birthday … and here are a couple pics of the pair making their way out of Courteney Cox-Arquette‘s home last night after celebrating the election results there. It would seem that lurve is still very much in the air:
As I understand it, media-shy Jen reportedly decided to reignite her romantic involvement with John on the express condition that he shy away from talking to (or seeking the attention from) the media (and the paparazzi in general). On that account, I think he’s managed to stay out of trubs with her. I seem to recall that John was happy to chat with the photogs the first time he and Jen were together … this time, we’ve seen nary a sight of him either with or without Jen in close proximity. I suspect if the couple is able to maintain this level of detachment from the cameras (well, except for the stray pic here or there of the couple sneaking out of this or that venue) then Mayerston may have a long and happy future together. Might there be Mayerston babies in the future? I guess it’ll depend on how good a boy John can stay in Jen‘s eyes. Good luck!

Too cute to let pass by
In the hub-bub of yesterday’s election mania, BritneySpears.com was updated with adorable photos of Britney Spears taking her sons Sean Preston and Jayden James out for a little trick-or-treating fun. As you may recall, Britney posted a group photo of her family and friends in costume on Halloween night on her site earlier in the week and promised a few more exclusive pics from the night’s festivities … and here are some of them:
As much as I love my girl Brit, I gotta say that her costume and the costumes of her lady entourage were pretty boring. I don’t think there is a more clichéd Halloween costume for women than “The Witch” costume … unless you’re talking about “The Fairy” costume. To his credit, I think papa Jamie Spears looked awesome (and horrifying) as a scary killer clown. Thankfully he didn’t wear his mask when he accompanied his grandyoung’ns on their trick-or-treating rounds. Sean P. and JJ are just the cutest little guys ever. Sean as a lion and Jayden as a turtle are TO DIE FOR CUTE. We know that daddy Kevin Federline picked up the boys from school on Halloween day (you may recall the brothers were dressed as cute bees) but they got to spend the fun Halloween night with their mama … as it should be. I realize Halloween is way over already but these pics are just too cute to let pass by.
They're just like us!
Woot! A new day has dawned here in America … and the World … and while there is still much to celebrate, there is also much work to get done in the aftermath. It’s also time to get back to the goss ;) Yesterday I created a photo album of friends and Pink readers proudly showing off the I Voted stickers (or handmade signs) that they were given after they voted yesterday and today we get to see a whole bunch of photos of celebs showing off their I Voted stickers, too. Americans came out in record numbers to vote yesterday and those numbers included celebs … here are a few of them who exercised their right to vote yesterday:
Depending on where the celebs live, these photos were snapped in NYC and here in LA. Here is another batch of celebs who came out to vote yesterday:
I’m pretty sure that some of these celebs were voting for President for the first time in their lives and it seems pretty safe to assume that the lion’s share of them added to President-elect Barack Obama‘s historic win.
I’ve been getting emails and messages from around the World of folks cheering on Obama‘s victory as news of his election as the 44th President of the United States of America made headlines around the world. Here are a few of the UK papers splashing the news across their covers:
David tells me that newsstands all over NYC are selling out of copies of The New York Times, etc. so I would suggest that y’all snap up your local newspapers — wherever in the country you are — and put them away for posterity. I’m just sayin’ ;)
Madonna was in concert in San Diego, CA last night and was on stage when news of Obama‘s win was announced … she happily broke the news to her assembled audience and talked a little bit about the momentous nature of the win while on stage. After the jump, check out video of her impromptu speech … More »

Partisanship on the set of 'Gossip Girl'
Gossip Girl hottie Penn Badgley was lookin’ pretty damn sharp on the Brooklyn, NY set of GG earlier today when he showed up at Green-Wood Cemetery where new scenes of the series were being filmed. You will note that Penn was proudly displaying a Yes We Can campaign button in support of Senator Barack Obama‘s bid for the US presidency:
Folks, we are just one day way from deciding who our next President will be and by all accounts it will be a historical election for our country. Most people have decided who they will be voting for in tomorrow’s election, including myself and Penn Badgley here, but it is imperative that y’all get out and vote tomorrow. Our country works best when the people take an active role in determining who will lead our country … I cannot even stress how important every single vote is to the greater electoral process. I urge you to PAY NO ATTENTION TO POLLS, whether they seem favorable or not … GET OUT AND VOTE tomorrow as is your right as an American citizen. So many people feel that their vote doesn’t matter and I’m telling you that it does. Click HERE to find out where your polling place is if you haven’t already done so. This is one election you CANNOT afford to miss out on. Just vote, y’all!!!
