When Lindsay Lohan backed out of her highly-anticipated Barbara Walters interview earlier this week, there was speculation that she simply did not want to have to answer questions about the many various dramas in her personal life. As we know, LiLo has kind of a hard time actually taking responsibility for anything, which is why it really pleased me to see that she was at least handling one of her legal issues. Back in 2009, Lindsay racked up about $90,000 in charges with a limo company (how does that happen?!?!). When she refused to pay up the company sued her, but it looks like they have come to a settlement agreement. Click inside for more!

In one week the final chapter (possibly) to the Twilight franchise will hit theatres and
fans stans of the saga are already getting prepared for The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2. For us regular folks, we’re happy seeing the trailers, checking out the stills, and maybe keeping an eye on Robsten. But if you’re a true Twi-hard, then that’s just kid stuff. Now I didn’t even know this was how it went down, but apparently there’s a space outside of the Staples Center in Los Angeles where people can actually register to camp out– like with tents and everything!!!– to see the premiere. From what I understand camping out pretty much guarantees you a sighting of Kristen Stewart, Robert Pattinson and the whole crew when they hit the red carpet. So I get it… sort of. But when you see the photos in this gallery, you’re gonna crack up. The drawings, the poster board where everyone signs their name, the ‘A Twi-Mom Sleeps Here‘ sign on one of the tents– all that ish cray! I love it! Peep the gallery for more standom of epic proportions.

President Obama is a lot of things. The President of the United States, for one. A husband, a father, and– strangely enough– a former subject of Terry Richardson‘s photographic lens. But I’m pretty sure he’s not a ‘nigger,’ which is what a woman in California called him on her Facebook page. Now granted, thousands of others did the same online (and, I’m sure, in the privacy of their own homes), but this particular young woman’s boss wasn’t having it. Neither is the Secret Service.

The incomparable Alicia Keys is gearing up for the release of her fifth studio album Girl On Fire. We’ve already seen the kinda weird, kinda pretty-looking video for the title track (which PITNBR Brent actually enjoyed, for good reasons) and now she’s dropping the second single, Brand New Me. The song was co-written by my girl Emile Sandé, who just picked up the Harper’s Bazaar Musician Of The Year award. I’m a little conflicted over this track; Brand New Me has a very smooth, ballad-like feel to it and, while I do like it, I guess I just don’t love it. Then again, I also know I’m not the biggest AK fan in the world. Check out the song above and tell me what you think. Alicia‘s voice sounds good, (and I do love the bridge which begins around the 2:40 mark), I’m just not head over heels for the entire production. However, I’m still crazy-psyched for that Frank Ocean collaboration! Hopefully we’ll get to hear that one soon.
Girl On Fire debuts on November 27.
This is just sad. Katt Williams really could have had class, he coulda been a contender! Instead of a bum, which is what it sounds like he’s becoming. Katt was my favorite stand-up comic for a while and then he started getting into hella legal trouble and, sadly, we started seeing less and less of him. I mean, I love me some Kevin Hart, and some Louis C.K. but there’s no one like Katt. At least on stage there isn’t. Off stage… there are, unfortunately, a lot of guys like Katt. The comedian was recently accused of punching his assistant– a young woman named Melissa– in the face, causing permanent injury. The woman is now suing for $5 million, which is about how much I would want if Katt Williams punched me in the face. Click inside for more.

Heidi Klum showed up at the press conference for the 2012 MTV Europe Music Awards and she looked so ridiculously good, and so nice, and so wholesome, I can almost put those pictures (that I secretly did like) of Obama by Terry Richardson out of my mind. Sigh. Thank you Heidi. Apparently, a host of other celebs are over in Frankfurt, Germany where this year’s awards are being held. Carly Rae Jepson (who’s in the middle of the most hilarious lawsuit ever) and Ludacris were also in the building. Luda, apparently, was letting everyone know that he has a ‘huge crush’ on Heidi. Uhhh yeah, Luda. Join the club. Peep the gallery for more! And, please, somebody get me those shooooes! Love!

Apparently a Lego movie has been in the works for some time now and a slew of our favorite actors are joining in. But first, can we just take a moment to visualize in our minds the Lego animated movie? ((moment)) Okay. That was weird. Moving on, lol! Will Ferrell and Liam Neeson are just now joining the cast of the movie (along with Morgan Freeman, Alison Brie and a host of others), which is titled Lego: The Piece of Resistance. Okay wait, no. I love that title. And now I’m totally into it! Click inside for more deets!
So, let’s all take a moment to recover from the Barack Obama/Terry Richardson photo shoot with a new jam. Never Shout Never is a band I’d never heard of until today. MTV highlighted their new video for Magic on Buzzworthy and I kind of fell in like with them immediately! An indie pop band from Missouri, Never Shout Never is sending me some very soothing, very positive vibes this morning. And what a morning it’s been. I’m loving this song and I love the very unique, very retro feel of the video. But mainly, I love the brilliant (and yet, almost cheesy) line I got 69 problems and a witch ain’t one. I mean, that’s just awesome, lol! I also can’t help but think of that amazing song from Petite Meller, NYC Time. Ahhh, I’m in a happy place now. Anybody else heard of these guys? Am I late?
Whaaaaaaat am I looking at right now, y’all? OMG! Okay. So I was just minding my own business working on my Beyoncé post, and I noticed that the Hallowe’en photo she shared kinda looked like a Terry Richardson pic, so I innocently jumped on his Tumblr to confirm or deny my suspicions. Everything was fine at first. You know, NBA baller Carmelo Anthony, Carmelo Anthony with some chick who wasn’t Lala, Carmelo lookin’ sexy in a black tank (thank you Terry), Carmelo lookin’ equally sexy in a white tank, some modelin’chick… the President of the United States of America. Wait. Whaaaaat?!?! I nearly lost my mind when I saw Angela friggen Lansbury had been all up in the Terry Richardson studio! Then it was Oprah! Now Barack Obama?! OMG. That’s it. I can’t. The Terry Richardson take over is official y’all, and I don’t know what this means for the universe. But I’m very interested in hearing what y’all think about Obama posing for him. I’m assuming those who lurve our POTUS will only lurve him more, and those who hate are gonna keep on hating. Personally, I’m just in a state of shock. Between this and the Jelena break-up (which I’m more torn up about than I’ll ever be able to fully let on), I’m having the weirdest Saturday ever, lol! But, I’m not gonna front… I kinda love these pics! Agh! Peep the gallery for more!
UPDATE: Thanks to a few savvy readers, we now know that these pics are from 2007, BEFORE Barack Obama was officially POTUS. And honestly, I’m a bit relieved. A bit. Thanks to PITNBRS johnny and Jake for the info– it takes a village to raise a blogger ;)
The whole world lost their mind the other day when Beyoncé joined Instagram. And by ‘whole world’ I mean ’331,000 people’ all of whom have started following her since Wednesday. I’m still waiting to see more snaps of that beautiful baby Blue, but in the meantime we’ve got a new pic from Bey‘s Tumblr. It looks like the singer dressed up as The White Rabbit from Alice In Wonderland (I’m assuming this was a Hallowe’en pic… unless she just does this sometimes, lol), and it’s pretty cute.
