I think I'd rather be a "nobody"

Image hosting by TinyPicFebruary 27, 2006 -- WINONA Ryder got possessive the other night at Von's on Bleecker Street when Liev Schreiber went outside for a smoke. Spies say the couple had been making out earlier. So when Schreiber started chatting up two young beauties on the sidewalk, Ryder quickly came out to reclaim her man. The actress was heard complaining about the downside of fame, as if to remind the young beauties they were nobodies.


wtf? "Ohmahgawd, like it so sucks being famous. All these losers hang all over us famous people. Anyone wanna go to Saks and steal some shit?"

George Michael arrested

POLICE in London reportedly arrested singer George Michael at the weekend after he was found slumped at the wheel of a car.

The 42-year-old singer was held by police on suspicion of drug possession, Britain's Press Association said.

He has been bailed and must return to a police station next month.

PA said police had found Michael in his car, at Hyde Park Corner, on Saturday after being alerted by a member of the public.

The paperwork was filled out under his real name: Georgios Kyriacos Panayiotou.

A Metropolitan Police spokesman said: "We were called by a member of the public to a man seen slumped over the steering wheel of a car on the street close to Hyde Park Corner".

"An ambulance attended, but the man was not suffering from any injuries so was not conveyed to hospital.

"Police attended and spoke to the man, aged 42. A search of the man revealed what was believed to be controlled substances.

"He was arrested on suspicion of possession of controlled substances of category C and on suspicion of being unfit to drive.

"Following an examination by the duty doctor in the custody suite he was de-arrested for the driving offence.

"He has been released on bail to return to a central London police station on a date in late March pending analysis of the substances recovered."

In 1998, Michael was arrested for lewd conduct in a public toilet in Los Angeles, which sparked days of frenzied speculation about his sexuality. Michael revealed as a result that he was gay.

Michael has been a chart-topper since the 1980s, when he shot to fame as the leading half of pop duo Wham!, whose hits include Freedom and I'm Your Man.

His subsequent solo career has been a massive success, with his first album Faith selling 10 million copies.

Paris Hilton Lands Mother Theresa Role!

I feel like this is just one big episode of Punk'd! But there were rumors a few weeks ago that Parasite Hilton was in the running to play Mother Theresa in a biopic by Indian director T. Rajeevnath and she has now won the role.

He said: "The preliminary script has been readied. And the proceeds of the film would go to the Missionaries of Charity. By June this year, the groundwork for the film would be complete and I propose to begin shooting in West Bengal and several foreign countries in early 2007."

Parasite said: "It's such an honour. I'm so excited. I really want to learn more about this amazing woman, so that's what I'm doing in a few months."

Is this a comedy? Honestly, what is going on in the world? You'd think it was bad when people had a problem with Vadge playing Evita, I can only imagine the kind of shit Parasite would receive. Bitch is gonna get shot!


All I got to say is LOL

Jennifer Aniston probably wishes she'd been nicer to fellow actress Nancy Balbirer, who shared a West Village apartment with her in the late 1980s.

Then maybe Balbirer wouldn't have ratted her out the other night at Joe's Pub, where an audience of actors and writers shrieked with laughter during an evening of readings to mark the paperback release of "The Underminer: Or, the Best Friend Who Casually Destroys Your Life."

The 40-year-old Balbirer was among the performers who told stories of their own personal "underminers." Balbirer's "underminer" was "a famous sitcom actress" called "Jane" — a thinly veiled Aniston — who she met when both were auditioning to be extras on "Saturday Night Live."

A Lowdown spy reports: "Jane, who had recently graduated from the High School of Performing Arts, was a few years younger than Nancy and was the daughter of a soap actor and a plastic-surgery victim who had divorced. Nancy let Jane live rent-free in her Village apartment for a few months.

"Nancy said Jane, who was then working at a burger joint, was obsessed with her looks, and would give herself bikini waxes while lying upside-down on the couch. The pair went on auditions, on diets, and to aerobics classes together. Jane advised Nancy to try and be 'more f—able' on auditions, and to buy chicken cutlets at the Food Emporium to stuff her bra. Jane iced her nipples before auditions, and lamented her big butt and her nose, which she said 'came from her Greek half.'

"Jane moved to Los Angeles, got liposuction, a nose job and a hairline adjustment, and lost a lot of weight after going on Nutri­Slim. Nancy recounted a trip to L.A. where she asked to stay with her old friend, but instead Jane named some hotels, telling Nancy not to be so desperate, because it's unattractive, especially in a town like L.A.

"After Jane landed a sitcom about friends who live together in the Village, Nancy independently met with the show's producers for a recurring role, which she landed on the spot. A few hours later, she was inexplicably fired, yet paid in full, plus an extra week's pay, despite never filming a scene. Later a producer friend told Nancy that Jane had her fired and the two old friends never spoke again."

When Lowdown repeated the dish to Aniston, via her flack Stephen Huvane, she was not amused. "Jennifer does know this woman Nancy, and she did live with her for a little bit, but did not live rent-free," Huvane insisted after consulting Aniston. "They were never close friends — it was not that kind of relationship."

Huvane vehemently denied Balbirer's claims of plastic surgery. As for the hiring-firing incident: "The girl did try out for a role on 'Friends,' but the girl just didn't get it. The cast doesn't get involved in casting — especially the first year. She just sounds like an opportunist who's using Jennifer to get attention. This is mean-spirited."

Balbirer told Lowdown the "Jane" story "is part of a new solo show and book I'm writing called 'Take Your Shirt Off And Cry,' about my life in show business and Hollywood." And Warner Bros. has acquired movie rights to "The Underminer" for Management 360 — Vince Vaughn's management company.

Jessica Simpson took a break from filming her latest movie to dine with Gov. Bill Richardson, his wife and others at the governor's mansion.

Simpson, who is in Santa Fe filming "Employee of the Month," ate with the governor Thursday night. The film is the fifth shot in New Mexico by Lions Gate Entertainment, an independent production and distribution studio.

"The governor feels very strongly about getting involved personally to promote New Mexico's film industry," Richardson spokesman Pahl Shipley said.

Richardson has rolled out the red carpet for other celebrities. Most recently, he dined at the mansion with Irish actor Liam Neeson.

Simpson was joined at the mansion by her parents, Lions Gate executives and members of the governor's staff. The dinner lasted about two hours and included a menu of chicken roulade, potatoes and green chili-stuffed tomato.

Matthew McConaughey: Failure to Nothing

What a wonderful set of pictures to find today. This Monday is turning out to be fabulous! Sexy Matthew McConaughey was doing a press conference for his new movie Failure to Launch co-starring SJP. The Scoop reports that MM was actually not a huge fan of Ms Parker. I could actually see these two clashing - they do seem pretty different.

Matthew McConaughey and Sarah Jessica Parker were onscreen sweeties in “Failure To Launch,” but a source says the warm feelings didn’t extend offscreen. “Matthew gets along with pretty much everyone, but he basically couldn’t bear Sarah,” the insider claims. In fact, McConaughey was rather hard pressed when asked to comment publicly on Parker. When asked recently by Oprah Winfrey to sum up various co-stars, the best thing he came up with for Parker was “Great comedic timing.” He then added: “Very peculiar, too. Man, she’s a very interesting woman. Yeah.”

Carey tunes up indie pic
Grammy-winning diva heads to 'Tennessee'

After a musical comeback, Mariah Carey has once again set her designs on the bigscreen.

Carey will star in "Tennessee," an indie drama to be directed by Aaron Woodley ("Rhinoceros Eyes") from a script by Russell Schaumberg. Pic will be produced by Lee Daniels ("Monster's Ball"). Pic shoots in New Mexico and Tennessee this spring.

Carey plays a waitress who sets off with two brothers to find their estranged father. Their goal: Get dad involved in saving their younger brother, who has leukemia.

While Carey's movie resume is overshadowed by the disappointing 2001 pic "Glitter," Daniels got the idea to cast her after watching her Grammy-winning album "The Emancipation of Mimi" become the biggest selling disc of 2005 and viewing her work in 2002's "WiseGirls."

"I never saw 'Glitter,' but I liked her work in the other film. Because this character is interracial and struggles with all sorts of issues because of that, I thought she was perfect," said Daniels, who also produced "The Woodsman" and made his directing debut on the Helen Mirren-Cuba Gooding Jr. starrer "Shadowboxer."

Coldplay's new album details.

The band say it's on the way...

Coldplay have an album's worth of new material and are planning to set up their own HQ in London to record it - despite tabloid reports they're hoing to split.

After sampling Kraftwerk on last single 'Talk' the band are set to take their approach to recording.

Inspired by the German group's Kling Klang studio where no outsiders are allowed, Coldplay are planning to build their own London studio to record the follow-up to 'X&Y'.

Their third album was recorded in various studios across the world, an experience the group aren't in a hurry to repeat. However, one thing is for sure, despite Chris Martin's claims at the BRIT Awards the group would move out of the limelight, any suggestion of a split is untrue.

Coldplay have been working on new songs during soundchecks on their 'Twisted Logic' world tour - meaning they have an album title and songs ready to record.

"We'll have a month here and a month there - we'll think about writing and where we want to go to next," Will Champion told NME.COM. "We're trying to find somewhere where we can set up and work. In all these years we haven't got a HQ, our own studio or anything like that. We want somewhere where we can sort of hole up and see what happens."

Bassist Guy Berryman said that the group feel inspired to experiment more with their new songs. "I don't want to generalise it and say 'We're going to become electronic' because I don't think we are going to become truly electronic," he said. "I think there's going to be elements of lots of things. It's hard to say, all the ideas are just spinning around inside my head and I've got a lot of new toys to play with. I always like our next record to be a bit harder sounding. Not rock harder just edgier. We'll always have melody."

On 'X&Y' many of the songs didn't feel right to the band until they locked themselves away, just four members, and hammered them out live. This is a lesson Coldplay have learned for album four.

"In the same way that we had loads of songs ready when we went in to do the last record and the record before, we're at that stage now where we've got songs," Champion explained. "I think they will need a lot of work, we need to learn how to play them. We've learnt from mistakes on the last record in terms of the idea that it's most important for us to play the songs together and to have them as live as possible."

Coldplay's next single is likely to be 'The Hardest Part', released in April.

New deal for Kate Mo$$

Scan from Fadedyouth

Six months after those pictures, US label Calvin Klein is the latest big name to court the supermodel, increasing her post-Pete Doherty earnings to £9.4m a year.

The supermodel Kate Moss is on the verge of signing one of the most lucrative contracts of her career just six months after a cocaine scandal had appeared to end her reign as Britain's most successful model.

Her publicist confirmed yesterday that Moss, 32, is in talks over a deal thought to be worth close to $2.6m (£1.5m) with the US fashion giant Calvin Klein - boosting her earnings to around £9m a year, almost double that before she was photographed snorting cocaine.

She is also likely to be reunited with the fashion house Burberry, which ended her contract following the drug revelations. Then it appeared that Moss, the girl from Croydon who was "discovered" at the age of 14 at JFK airport, was finished.

Pictures of her taking cocaine in a recording studio with her then musician boyfriend Pete Doherty had brought a storm of criticism, leading big-name employers Hennes, Burberry and Chanel to cancel their contracts.

Her Message To Nick's Girl

Image hosting by Photobucket

Even though, Jessica's moved on, that doesn't mean she wants Nick to do the same -- as the lyrics from two songs she's written make clear. Before their split, Jessica secretly wrote the song "Wannabe," which questions Nick's fidelity and ridicules women who try to flirt with him. In another tune, registered with the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers called "Fired Up!," she warns other women to stay away. Now, friends say, Jessica has a target for those lyrics: Nick's new galpal, former Miss Kentucky USA Elizabeth Arnold, whose relationship with Nick first started in 2001, before he and Jessica wed. "They're definitely still dating," an insider says.

Lizzie's friends say the beauty queen isn't scared of Jessica's taunts. "Lizzie doesn't know Jessica," a friend says.

After recent reports that Nick has reunited with his old flame, friends say Jessica thinks of her song "Wannabe" when Lizzie's name has come up. "This song gets her through the rough times," a pal says.

But it'll stay private for now. In Touch has learned Jessica isn't planning to release either single for the airwaves.

Sure, he's got three movies on the way. But it feels like forever since we last saw Justin Timberlake serenading the señoritas as he Justified his existence in a post-'NYSNC world. And with his second solo album slated for a 2006 release, JT is on the verge of — dare we say it — a comeback. So how does he plan to return, and where exactly is he at with the album?

Backstreet Boy to take kids charity nationwide

Backstreet Boy Brian Littrell cooks breakfast with his wife, Leighanne, and son Baylee, 3, at their home in Alpharetta. At age 23, Littrell was told he needed a second heart surgery if he wanted to live to see the day he was a father.


As a Backstreet Boy, Brian Littrell implores an imaginary girl to "quit playing games with my heart" in one of the band's biggest hits.

As a grown-up man, Littrell — who resides in Alpharetta — helps real children with real broken hearts — and plans to make his charity program, Healthy Heart Club for Kids, a nationwide effort.

Littrell, and his wife, Leighanne, are expanding their program that Littrell founded in 1998 in his hometown of Lexington, Ky., only months after he underwent open-heart surgery for a congenital heart defect that was slowly killing him.

It was the second heart surgery he'd had; the first took place when he was 5. Doctors told his family then that he would not live.

Does Madonna Want Her Plastic Surgery Kept Secret?

Pop star Madonna's recent hospital visit has caused controversy after it was claimed she was given "special treatment" after falling from her horse last month. The 47-year-old star was celebrating her birthday when she had the accident, and suffered a broken collarbone, three cracked ribs and a fractured hand. Though, rumor has it she was really undergoing liposuction and plastic surgery to her buttocks. She was taken to Salisbury District Hospital A&E, where she was treated by National Health Service (NHS) staff and is rumored to have been given a private room because plastic surgery is such a touchy subject with some individuals. Madonna plastic surgeons will probably be the only ones to ever know.

Jenny McCarthy Wants To Taunt Paris Hilton in the Afterlife

Model/actress Jenny McCarthy would love to haunt socialite Paris Hilton if she becomes a spirit after death. The actress wants to offer the hotel heiress moral lessons and drive her mad with insults.

She says, "I'd try and give her (Hilton) some really good spiritual direction in her life. I'd also love to f**k with her, whispering in her ear things like, 'Your clothes are dirty! You're totally out of style! Eat something!'"

Meanwhile, McCarthy is amazed she's still alive and well because she's had numerous brushes with death. As a child the blonde beauty suffered a barrage of accidents including being hit by a car, and a near-fatal choking seizure.

She says, "I've had so many near-death experiences. When I was six I choked on a piece of candy and was in a room on my own but no one could hear me. In my head I was calling for my mom and then suddenly she appeared and did the Heimlich manoeuvre. Then, when I was seven, I was hit by a car, flew up in the air and landed on my feet. I have no idea why I am still here, actually. It really is unbelievable."

And she is convinced she is invincible: "I think when I do finally go, people will be saying, 'Thank god she's finally dead.'"


What about "Stop showing people your cooch Grandma." or "Semen causes cancer."?
