But Says He Luuurves Chris Nolan's 'Memento'
Christopher Nolan is probably best known for his Dark Knight trilogy and maybe Inception as well, but did you know he made one of the coolest, most intense films in the history of film, ever– Memento?! My brain nearly exploded when I read that David Cronenberg (director of Robert Pattinson‘s next flick Cosmopolis) mentioned that Memento is Nolan‘s best film; for me, Nolan just got that much cooler. But Cronenberg also called The Dark Knight movies ‘boring,’ which kind of makes sense (coming from him)… and then kind of, totally doesn’t! Far be it for me to dispute the guy who made Eastern Promises and A History of Violence (and A Dangerous Method!), but whaaaattt?! Deets inside.
A Long Time Ago, While Filming A Cheesy-Ass Movie
Way back in 1994 actor Jean-Claude Van Damme was a fairly popular action star and Kylie Minogue was pretty much unknown here in the US. The pair starred in a live action film version of the video game Street Fighter. These days, Van Damme is all but forgotten as an actor and Minogue is one of the biggest pop stars in the world … so naturally, Van Damme is now dishing about how he bedded Minogue back in ’94 while the pair filmed Street Fighter together. It’s really weird the way he talks about this alleged affair. At first, he doesn’t seem willing to talk about it … then seconds later, he’s bragging like a 15 year old. Could it be true? Did Kylie really fall under the romantic sway of the Muscles from Brussels? More »
Whoa! WTF Is Going On Here, Ben?
Now that the world has pretty much settled down on the Kristen Stewart cheating on Robert Pattinson with a married man scandal, it’s time to turn our attentions to a new cheating scandal … this time involving Anderson Cooper. As you may recall, Anderson recently came out publicly as gay but he’s been in a fairly private, seemingly longterm romantic relationship with his live-in boyfriend Benjamin Maisani for about 3 years. New photos of Maisani passionately kissing a man have hit the Internets … and the man he is kissing is NOT Anderson Cooper. Yikes! More »
Nipplage! We have Nipplage, folks!
Have you ever wondered what Facebook founding billionaire Mark Zuckerberg looks like with his shirt off? Well, now you’re in luck. For some unknown reason, Zuck‘s fellow Facebook compatriot Andrew Bosworth uploaded a mysterious photo of Mark Zuckerberg and other men without their shirts. The photo, apparently, was only online for mere “seconds” before it was taken down … but it was up long enough for the photo to be saved and republished. And so, we have a shirtless photo of MZ. Wanna see the photo in full? Check it out below. More »

Last month we read the letter that Mitch Winehouse published on the one year anniversary of his daughter Amy‘s untimely death. Today we learn that Amy‘s ex-husband Blake Fielder-Civil might be following in her tragic footsteps. Once upon a time, Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder-Civil were madly in love and married. But their relationship was, by many accounts, a horribly violent one that was fueled by wild drug use. Amy managed to break away from Blake after he was sent to prison on drug charges but, alas, she met an early end anyways. Now we learn that Blake is in an induced coma as he struggles to stay alive on life support machines after a reported drug overdose. This news is just beyond tragic. More »

"There are things to prevent that nowadays, like Propecia"
Uh oh! Justin Bieber‘s big mouth has gotten him in trubs again. While giving an interview to British teen mag Rollercoaster, The Biebs openly lamented the fact that Prince William is losing hair when he doesn’t have to. On the subject of Willy‘s hair loss, JB wonders aloud to Rollercoaster magazine why he doesn’t just buy hair loss prevention products to save his hair. Naturally, some folks in Great Britain are unhappy with Bieber‘s comments. Honestly, for me, it’s just the kind of thing that dumb kids say when they are asked to speak. More »

Latest Car Wreck Upgrades Her Status to "Trainwreck"
Remember back in April when Amanda Bynes was arrested for DUI after she allegedly sideswiped a parked police car after a long night of partying at a near by hotel bar (which, subsequently, banned her from returning the following night)? Remember how a month later she was reportedly involved in another hit and run accident? Yeah, well, it would appear that Ms. Bynes is up to her bad habits again. According to a new report, Amanda was ALLEGEDLY involved in another car accident in SoCal this weekend where she rear-ended another car. The passenger of the other car says that Amanda left the scene of the accident without giving up her information or without waiting for the police to arrive. She hit the car then ran … again. More »

That-Ish-Cray Of The Day
Yesterday we got to see the over-the-top lavishness that is Beyoncé, Jay-Z, and Blue Ivy‘s new rental house in the Hamptons. We thought they had everything in that monstrosity but, my friends, they don’t have this. And this ish cray. Elite Home Theatre Seating is a company I truly hope to one day have a reason to contact. They work with designers who create ridiculously fancy seats for the home theatres that, you know, regular every-day people have. Except now they’ve taken their fancy-schmancyness to a whole ‘nother level, and pimped out one of their designs to look like the bat cave from The Dark Knight trilogy. It’s sick and amazing and 2 million dollars, and my only consolation for not being able to [currently] afford this is that Jay-Z and Beyoncé don’t have one either. So there. Check out the sexiest, family-oriented lair ever, inside.
He Calls Her a "C*nt" and a "F*cking Stripper"
Back in March I took issue with comments by Elton John where he opened up about “bullying” he experienced as a gay man even tho he and his husband David Furnish seem to have no problem bullying other people. Earlier this year, Elton and David got into a disgusting public display of bullying when they attacked Madonna for winning the Best Song award at the Golden Globes (Elton, who was also nominated, lost the award to Madonna). Now, just 5 months after Elton shared with the world his sad tale of being bullied, he is at it again with his vicious attacks against Madonna (his attack begins around the 7:30 mark). I warn you, the video about features strong language that is NSFW. If you do not want to watch the video, you can click below to read what sort of really nasty things Elton John has to say now about Madonna. More »
