Seperated At Birth?

Mischa Barton "annoyed" with the Ratzzies

I work at an organic grocery store in Los Angeles- it's trendy- expensive and a cest pool for celebrities. You guys have seen my posts before- Ive helped Kristen Dunst escape from "rattzies" and posted random stuff here and there but- well- you be the judge.

Mischa Barton has been in a couple times in the last 3 or 4 days. Last time she was in her and Mary-Kate Olson had a little "run-in" together- Both were checking out at the same time, MK came over said hello, they did the girly kisscheeks thing and made (very) small talk. Mischa told MK that she had just got back from SanFran (or was it SanDiego?) and apparently she got stuck in an elevator after some type of autograph signing, the both of them concluded those things suck, there are so much people who show up- it's hot, its crazy, both rolled eyes- anyways lets cut to today.

Mishca is checking out. She's got tons of stuff- more than usual. A shopping cart full- something about the size of a small family needs- Anyways, she's checking out, I'm bagging for her, "Plastic, yeah, uhh Plastic Sure." About 8 or 9 bagsfull later I ask if she's going to need help to her car (common procedure) and she told me- "Uhh, no, um, I can handle it, Im down the street" That immediately raised ?s in my mind because we have our own parking garage, secure, private, and it just makes sense- She doesnt want to use the cart and suddenly it all makes sense. She calls her "assistant- I mean friend, uhh yeah, he'll help me" she fixes her glasses, gets on her sidekick and pushes the cart out the door and stops just in time for the papparazzi outside to start snapping photos. She declined the help to the car, declined the use of the cart, declined her own privacy- and that is when I finally understood that her "acting" like she didnt want peoople taking pictures of her is exactly what she really did want. Now I am not a journalist, nor do I know her personally so maybe when she said "uhh, go away" (to the papparazzi) she meant it. However- it is my opinion that- that is the last thing she really would have wanted. I instructed the man with the camera to get off our private property- so he hopped onto the sidewalk, snapped tons of pics and walked backwards as Mischa and her "assistant, I mean friend" walked to her car. She was carrying about 4 or 5 bags (the light ones, the ones with the t.p. paper towels and chips) and I went inside- never saw where the hell her car was actually parked.

So, this might be a "boring" post but I thought some might care- Kirsten Dunst parks in the garage and leaves thru the back, Randy Jackson parks in the garage, leaves thru the front, Jake Gyllenhaal, MK Olson, Parker Posey and Crispin Glover- they all park in the garage... But Mischa, she likes to park down the street, outside no where near the store and carry her own bags. Well hats off to ya honey, you looked smokin' hot! ***"Just because she parks far away doesnt mean she wants to be photographed or that she is trying to....."*** Shut up, save your comments, yes it does. :) The whole situation was "different" and felt too fixed or setup. It felt like she was going thru so much un-needed trouble to make this look "natural"

Just in case none of the pics from today make it to the site she was wearing gold rimmed sunglasses, long dangly ear-rings and she looked really great.

When Do We Eat?

A tough-love dad has to deal with hosting his father who never unpacks, his wife, who is intent on creating the perfect Seder, and his children who go out of their way to make the night an adventure. When one of the kids slips Dad a tab of Ecstasy, his visions turn him into a modern day Moses intent on leading this hungry group to the promised land of family forgiveness. Of course they're all so stubborn, it would be easier to part.

And yes, that's Gordo (Adam Lamberg) from Lizzie McGuire in the middle of that shot.

My friends and I went to eat at Canters around midnight tonight and while we were ordering I noticed a girl walk by that looked familiar. It was Rachel Bilson. She looked really small and tired and had no make up on. A few minutes later at the register we noticed she was with Adam...who looked pretty much the same as he does on tv. I guess boys don't need as much make up as girls do to look good on tv. The best part is they were there with...Joel Madden??? What the heck? And where was Hilary? Oh yeah, she doesn't eat.

That brings me to another siting. A few weeks ago my friend called me from aaron brothers (she works there) and told me Joel was in there buying frames. 2 minutes later I was there to see for myself. Not that I care about Joel, you see. I wanted to look for Hilary. He was by himself and talking on the phone the whole time.

My friend took her break so we could go look for Hilary in a car outside and there was only one black emo mobile parked outside with back rims. We left a note saying "Where is Hilary" on it and parked right next to it so we could watch it cry while Joel was away. Then he came out, read the note while we giggled like school girls and drove away.

vegan food fight



most of the article is under the cut

Collapse )

Wikipedia, the online encyclopaedia, has a veritable roll-call of celebrity vegans. Woody Harrelson, the actor, is a vegan, as are his fellow Hollywood stars Joaquin Phoenix and Alicia Silverstone.

The singer Bryan Adams refuses to eat milk or cheese or any other animal product, as do k d lang and Moby.

Heather Small, the lead singer of M People, and Benjamin Zephaniah, the poet, follow the vegan philosophy.

The athlete, Carl Lewis, who won nine Olympic gold medals, is a vegan.

The insertion of Uri Geller's name in the vegan list is believed to be a joke by a mischievous contributor.

Heather Mills-McCartney, the wife of Paul McCartney, himself a vegan, is the latest celebrity convert to the cause. The former model announced her conversion last August, saying that vegetarianism not only benefited health but also made a huge difference to the planet.

She added: "I could never go back to eating meat or fish and I'm moving towards being vegan. When I crack an egg now, I think: 'Could that have been a baby?'"
(yeah, most eggs do form babies of some sort. this plus the "do seals bite" comment show what a informed animal rights activist she is)

Five famous vegans

Alicia Silverstone

The actress, 29, who had an organic wedding with Christopher Jarecki, was voted the world's sexiest female vegetarian in 2004. She says it is the best thing she has done in her life: "My body just got so healthy and skinny, and my skin became so radiant, that I started looking fabulous anyway." Last year, the actress, who starred in Clueless and Love's Labour's Lost, suggested that she would like to take her vegan lifestyle one step further: "I'd love to raise a family on a farm and grow my own food, and grow my hair down to my ankles and be a kind of punk-rock hippy."

Woody Harrelson

Harrelson, 44, the bartender on Cheers!,has not eaten meat for 15 years. Not only is he vegan, but he also eats a 90 per cent raw diet. At opening night parties, he grazes on vegan canapes and regularly fasts, taking up to a week off from solid food. During one fast he lost 15lb. He has declared dairy to be one of the great evils of the world. "Yeah, milk does a body good - if you are a calf," he says. "It is evil to your body to put something in there that's designed to make an animal go from very small to very big in a short time."
(hmm, doesn't fat-free milk solve woody's dairy issue?

Gwyneth Paltrow

The Oscar-winning actress, 33, lives on a macrobiotic diet of wholegrains, vegetables, beans, seaweed and soya. A lover of new-age treatments, she is married to the Coldplay singer, Chris Martin. Her daughter, Apple, had a vegan first birthday party last year with food and chocolate cheesecake from Moby's café, Teany. "I would rather die than let my kid eat instant soup," she says. She has admitted that people do not see her and her husband as the epitome of rock'n'roll. "There is this perception of us in this country like, 'Oh, they're quite boring, they do yoga and stay home,'" she said.
(i posted this article purely for the gwyneth factor... someone please kidnap her child and threaten to feed her ramen)

Benjamin Zephaniah

The poet, whose favourite restaurant is Chawalla's in East Ham, is a " militant vegan" who would not sit on a chair made of leather. When asked what he would eat if he was in a desert with no food in sight except a cow, he said: "I'd find out what the cow was eating and join it." He became vegetarian at the age of 11 and vegan at 13: "I was disgusted by the taste and texture, and the thought of having flesh and blood against my teeth," he said. "Think of the fierce energy concentrated in an acorn! You bury it in the ground, and it explodes into an oak! Bury a sheep, and nothing happens but decay."
(decay is actually really cool because it provides nutritents for that tree to grow and it allows grubs and worms to eat. HOW DARE YOU NOT CARE ABOUT THE WORMS!

Moby

The singer, 40, a "vegan fascist" for nearly two decades, owns Teany, a café in New York, which has spawned a vegan soft drinks company. Moby, born Richard Melville Hall, feasts on vegan focaccia with roasted onions. "When I think of the fact that literally tens of billions of animals are killed nearly every year for human purposes, part of me wants to go out and join the Animal Liberation Front," he has said. He admits that some people are filled with "ridicule" at the idea of veganism. But he says that it is "second nature" to him.

Kylie's Elephant Trip



Kylie Minogue has hopped on top of an elephant during a surprise trip to Sri Lanka.

She showed her caring side by stopping off in the country to do a spot of charity work.

Kylie was on her way back to Australia when she stopped off on the island in the Indian Ocean. She had been to Paris spending time with her actor boyfriend Olivier Martinez.

The singer is the patron and sponsor of Children Of The Sea - a theatre group mainly made up of children who were orphaned in the Tsunami and civil war.

Sarah Jessica Parker has ruled out a 'Sex And the City' film.

The sexy actress, who played Carrie Bradshaw in the hit US series, insists she has no intention of reuniting with her co-stars - Kim Cattrall, Kristin Davis and Cynthia Nixon - for a movie based on the show. Sarah claims a big-screen adaptation would be impossible to shoot because the production team destroyed the old sets.
She said: "I really don't think that will happen now. The sets were literally thrown away."
Meanwhile, Sarah has laughed off claims she didn't get on with 'Failure to Launch' co-star Matthew McConaughey. The beautiful star insists she found the hunky actor "a pleasure to work with" - despite movie insiders claiming he couldn't bear her.

So there have been a few Nicole Richie encounter posts.. and I never posted mine. I love ONTD, so I'm sharing it with you guys. This happened in late November.

So I live in Birmingham, AL.. and absolutely nobody comes here. Well they do sometimes, but they aren't very awesome people. Anyways, so I heard on the radio that Nicole Richie was coming to Birmingham and my first reaction was just "Why?" But whatever.. I was too excited to question it. It turns out it was for a book signing for her novel, "The Truth About Diamonds." It was held at Books A Million in Wildwood, which isn't even a popular bookstore. Anyways, so the day of the event.. you have to go get a line number. The line numbers were distributed starting at 9am. I get there at 9:05am, and I already have number 91. Who knew so many people here liked her? Then I remembered that Lionel is from Alabama.

It's time for the event, so I go into the bookstore and everywhere you look - there's stacks and stacks of her book. There are already about 200+ people in line. So I find my place in line and start talking to people around me. Then I heard people screaming and flashes going off.. but I couldn't see her because I'm so short and because the line went in and out of bookshelves. Finally, I was like 3rd to go up to her. There were a lot of people taking pictures of her on the other side of this rope thing, and I almost went blind. I don't know how she handles that 24/7. So this annoying redhead lady steals away my book and like folds a page over for her to sign it. So I go up to Nicole and she is SO CUTE, let me tell you. She had on like a jacket with a scarf.. so you couldn't tell how small she actually was, but she was so adorable and tiny. I go up to her and I'm like "Oh my God, I can't believe I'm meeting you.. you're so funny and I admire you for going through all you had to during your childhood." And she says, "Aww thanks sweetie" and gives me a hug over the table. It seriously looked like she was going to cry when I said that. So the security was telling me to hurry up so I said "Bye Nicole!" and she said "Bye girl!" I swear I smiled for the rest of the night. So I went back to where people were taking pictures, and decided "Hell, this is a once in a lifetime oppurtunity, so I'm going to be annoying and take pictures too." So I took probably 100+ pictures.. she's just so cute on camera. And she's the sweetest person ever.. she smiled and hugged many people, and she took pictures with people and personalized autographs even though she wasn't supposed to do that either. These teenagers I was next to wanted to say Goodbye to Nicole but were too nervous and kept messing up.. but finally they all said "Bye Nicole!!" And Nicole smiled very big and said, "Bye guys!"

Oh and other things.. her mom was there along with many of her [non-famous] friends. We have a Saks here in a shopping center called The Summit, and she had been shopping at Saks and in The Summit all afternoon, according to people behind me who were talking about it. I'm sure it was good for her to be able to shop without paparazzi for once. It's probably 100% guaranteed there's not going to be any paparazzi in Birmingham. She had a huge Saks bag behind the bench her friends were sitting on. Oh and this was when she was still engaged, and she wore her diamond ring [not the pink one] and it was seriously bigger in person.

Now.. here's lots of pictures. Some are crappy quality, so excuse that. Overall, they're pretty good.

Jennie Garth Expecting Third Child


NEW YORK (March 15) - Jennie Garth is expecting her third child with actor-husband Peter Facinelli, Us magazine reports.

"Peter and I feel very blessed with our children," the 33-year-old actress is quoted as telling the magazine in its latest issue, on newsstands Wednesday.

The couple have two daughters, Lola Ray, 3, and Luca Bella, 8.

"We didn't plan any one of them, but higher forces and recognizing priorities helped us along the way. We can't wait to meet this newest addition to our family!" Garth says.

The Associated Press left a phone message for her press representative Wednesday.

Garth, star of the WB sitcom "What I Like About You," and Facinelli, 32, were married in 2001.

"Marriages aren't easy, and we're just like any other couple," says Garth, who starred as Kelly Taylor on the '90s TV series "Beverly Hills, 90210."

"We have our roadblocks, but we get around them, and our family prevails. We are so happy we have a normal, grounded life to keep us centered."

Demi Moore with child?!?!

demi_moore_ashton.jpg
Star magazine thinks she's preggers!

"Demi & Ashton's Miracle Baby," proclaims this week's latest issue.

According to the tab, on March 9, Demi made her third trip in one month to Petit Tresor, an upscale baby store in L.A.

The store locked its door so that Demi could shop in private.

She was particularly interested in changing tables and an armoire. "She was curious about delivery times for the furniture and about the colors and finishes," a source tells Bon Bon Fuller & Co.

Demi was overheard telling her shopping companion, a women in her 60's sporting a Kabbalah bracelet, "I like this for the baby," the source adds.

She also mentioned her hubby. She said, "I wonder if Ashton would like this." When Demi was told that it would take 8-12 weeks for the pieces to be delivered, "She said she wanted it sooner," says the source.

Hmmm. Maybe Moore borrowed some fresh eggs from a younger chick???

If it's true, Mazel Tov! If not, except a Fuller abortion real soon!

Garbage's Shirley Manson Flying Solo

With Garbage on a hiatus of undetermined length, frontwoman Shirley Manson has begun work on her first solo album. The artist tells Billboard.com she recently completed a track with U.K. film composer David Arnold, with whom she collaborated on the theme song for the 1999 James Bond film "The World Is Not Enough."

"I just went to London last week and we wrote a song together," she says. "It was really quick and fast and it was really good fun." Manson admits with a laugh that beginning to write with other people is "scary and really exciting and super-freaky. It feels really weird to talk about it!"

Manson says she has no timetable for completing the project and is more interested in enjoying herself. "I've got no timetable. I'm sort of sick of timetables, to be honest," she says. "I just want to live my life a little freely and not adhere to any schedule -- just make music and have fun."

The artist acknowledges Garbage fans were confused by the mixed messages surrounding the start of the band's hiatus last fall, but insists, "We're still together, absolutely. We all feel like we want to go off and do a variety of things. [Drummer] Butch [Vig] is going back into production and some other guys are working on film soundtracks."

"Being the chaotic bunch we are, we should have put a press release together but we didn't," she adds. "We were quite taken aback by how big a deal was made of it. But we love each other and we still want to work together. We're just taking a break. We've had a crazy decade."

Anne Rice: Johnny Depp Would Make A Good Jesus

In talks to develop a Biblical drama for HBO, the Roman Catholic Rice says she knows who she wants for Jesus.

Just call it a mission from God.

In a new book which interviews celebrities about their religious and spiritual beliefs, Anne Rice, the bestselling vampire writer and born-again Christian said she believes she's been called to make a television series about Jesus' life -- and in her head, she's already cast it.

"I haven't told Johnny Depp yet, but wouldn't he be perfect?" Rice said about the series, which she described as HBO's "Deadwood" (her favorite show) set in Nazareth. But how would the profane Western translate into a Biblical storyline?

"It would be everything that's going on in Jesus' village -- all the arguments, disputes, whatever --and we'd take maybe five years to get to Jerusalem," Rice said. She said she's been begging her agent to set her up with television writers and HBO, because "if I don't do it, somebody else will, because I can't want to do something this badly... without somebody else thinking of it."

Rice was born Roman Catholic, but her last book, "Christ the Lord: Out of Egypt," represented a major departure from her other works, many of which chronicle the lives and dastardly deeds of a pack of self-reincarnating vampires. Her book "Interview with a Vampire" became a blockbuster hit in 1994 starring Brad Pitt, Tom Cruise and Kirsten Dunst.

The book, "The God Factor" by Chicago Sun-Times reporter Cathleen Falsani, features interviews with some 32 celebrities including Billy Corgan, Bono, U.S. Senator Barack Obama and Hakeem Olajuwon.

"Mmmm. . . , Strong. Beautiful. Edgy. Soulful eyes," Falsani writes about Depp. "A graceful person but not effeminate. Roguish yet strangely wise. Yes, Depp as Jesus -- I can see it."

Courtney Love returns to the studio
The former-Hole star dismisses tabloid rumors as she goes back to work

Courtney Love has entered a Los Angeles studio to begin work on a new solo album.

Following her brief trip to London last week during which she checked out Dirty Pretty Things at Kings College (March 8), Love told NME.COM she's starting pre-production on her second solo album with producer Linda Perry this week.

The main recording of the as yet untitled effort will take place in April with Perry producing the bulk. Billy Corgan is also set to produce a handful of her new tracks.

Discussing the songs she is considering for her upcoming record Love said: "I don't generally talk about what the songs are about, but I will say that in the gutters of this earth you can always find love. In the darkest alley and [during] the lowest moment there is always that thing that glitters just a little bit, no matter how twisted or deadly or violent. It's there magical and transformative. I've written a lot about that."

However she laughed-off suggestions that this could include comedian Steve Coogan, who she was linked with again in weekend news reports.

"We're friends and he's funny as fuck and very cool. But he's not my boyfriend and if he was I sure as hell would never talk about it," she declared, adding the coverage had upset her. "My private life is my private life. I'll say one thing. I'm fucking sick of fucking tabloids, I don't talk to them and I don't like them."

She added that since working with Jim Carrey on the 1999 film 'Man On The Moon' about comedian Andy Kaufman, she had found herself more inspired by comics than rock stars.

"Ever since I worked with Jim Carrey I've related really well to comedians," she said. "I think our jobs are really similar and I'm drawn to people as friends who aren't afraid to go to the edge. A lot of times rockers are trying to be cool so much they forget that the fundamental job is to be as vulnerable as possible. Really good comedians are sometimes more rock 'n' roll than rock 'n' rollers."

Love declared that this now included 'Little Britain''s Matt Lucas and David Walliams, whom she met on her recent London trip, revealing: "I have a 'Fat Fighters' sticker on my guitar!"

Ann Calvello "Queen of the Roller Derby" dies



Ann Theresa Calvello (born August 1, 1929; died March 14, 2006) was an athlete and notable personality in the sport of roller derby.
Calvello was the only professional athlete to have competed in seven decades: the 1940s through the 2000s. Calvello, who often sported dyed hair and wild makeup, was known for her temper along with her unconventional looks. She was nicknamed "Banana-Nose" by fans.
In 2001, Demon Of The Derby, a biographical documentary film about Calvello, was completed by Fireproof Productions. It has been released on DVD, and is occasionally screened at fundraisers organized by roller derby leagues.
In 2005, Calvello contributed many rare photos and clippings from her personal collection to the book Roller Derby Classics…and more! by Jim Fitzpatrick, published by Trafford Publishing. She also wrote the foreword to the book.
On February 27, 2006, Calvello was featured in an episode of the reality television show Rollergirls that was broadcast on the A&E Network. In the episode, filmed in 2005, members of the Texas Roller Derby league travel to California in search of their hero.
Calvello last resided in San Bruno, California with her cats. She never officially retired from roller derby, but had not competed since 2000. In early 2006, she was diagnosed with liver cancer, and passed away soon after.

Even the NY Times lols @ emo kids

Ah, the New York Times-- respected bastion of great American journalism, reporting important things, such as Elliott Spitzer suing H&R Block, Saddam Hussein and guys in "emo" bands. Bless them.

The Glamour (Sigh, Whine) of Heartbreak

Thanks to a nation of enthusiastic high-school kids, emo bands are everywhere; plaintive punk has become the soundtrack of white adolescence. Thanks to a nation of enthusiastic downloaders, sexually explicit images of celebrities are everywhere, too. And last week these two trends finally collided, as Web sites began posting a series of extraordinarily revealing photographs of Pete Wentz, the bassist and lyricist for the emo band Fall Out Boy.

Phil Collins and Wife Announce Separation



NEW YORK - Splitsville for Phil Collins and his wife, Orianne.

The British rock star and his Swiss-born wife, who were married in 1999, announced in a joint statement Wednesday that they’ve separated.

They have two sons, Nicholas, 4, and Matthew, 1. Collins has three children from two previous marriage.

“They have been living separately since the beginning of the year and both cite the fact that they have been growing apart for some time now and this has put too much pressure on their relationship,” the statement said.

“Consequently, they have decided in the interests of their two children that it is better to separate. They are both very sad that it should come to this but have as their priority the welfare and happiness of their children and are determined to remain friends and be loving parents to them.”

The Grammy-winning former Genesis drummer and singer, 55, and Orianne, in her early 30s, met in 1994 on a tour supporting his solo record, “Both Sides.” At the time, he was going through a divorce from his second wife, Jill.

The couple lived in Switzerland, and Collins will continue to live in that country “to be near to the children,” the statement said.

Collins won an Oscar in 2000 for the hit single, “You’ll be in My Heart,” from the 1999 animated film, “Tarzan.” His score will also be featured in Disney’s stage version of “Tarzan” that is opening May 10.

By Gina Serpe

He may have married a busty bride, but it turns out Shannon Elizabeth's estranged hubby is more of an asset man.

Actor, sometime musician and former luckiest man alive Joseph Reitman is suing the American Pie star for half of all earnings, property, assets and investments she took home in the half-decade they spent cohabitating before getting married.

According to the suit filed Tuesday in Los Angeles Superior Court, Reitman says he and Elizabeth began living together in the summer of 1997, and up until they swapped vows on June 15, 2002, the then-couple agreed "that they would be equal partners in the acquisition of assets and in financial affairs whether such transactions were separate or joint."

Which, in hindsight, was not such a good move for Elizabeth.

While she spent those five years becoming one of the breakout stars of the American Pie franchise and going on to be featured in the big-screen blowouts Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back, Scary Movie and Love, Actually, Reitman languished in bit TV parts, periodically popping up in the likes of Charmed and Beverly Hills, 90210.

Which didn't make for much of a nest egg.

But Reitman's suit contends that Elizabeth's acquisitions during their premarriage days exceeded more than just juicier roles.

"Real property, extensive personality holdings, net equity in business entities, business assets, and business investments, furniture, furnishings, fine artwork [and] collectibles," are all listed in the suit as holdings the actress landed prior to their vow-swapping, but holdings Reitman contends he is nevertheless entitled to half of.

He also claims that his former better half has been less than upstanding in upholding their deal, secretly transferring assets and investments from him that stem from the five year period.

Though the suit isn't all about payoff--it's also about compensation.

Reitman alleged in the suit that he compromised his own acting career in order to promote and support Elizabeth in her quest for movie stardom.

"Enhanced by plaintiff's coaching, connections, training, assistance and efforts, defendant [Elizabeth] was able to become a successful actress," the lawsuit states.

Elizabeth, 32, and Reitman, 37, tied the knot in a small beach ceremony in Mexico in June 2002, after nearly a decade of dating and even more of being friends.

Last March, after just three years as mister and missus, the duo announced that they had "mutually decided to separate [but] will remain friends." At the time of the announcement, the couple was still living together in their Los Angeles home.

In June of last year the couple officially called it quits with Elizabeth filing for divorce, citing irreconcilable differences.

Jessica Simpson snubs Bush



LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - Concerned about politicizing her favorite charity, singer-actress Jessica Simpson on Wednesday turned down a invitation to meet with U.S. President George W. Bush, a snub that left Republicans dismayed.

The apparent final word that Simpson would be a no-show at a major Republican fund-raiser with Bush and congressional leaders on Thursday night came after a day of conflicting reports from her camp and organizers of the event.

The blond star of the film "The Dukes of Hazzard" still plans to visit Washington on Thursday to lobby members of Congress on behalf of Operation Smile, a non-profit venture offering free plastic surgery for disadvantaged children overseas with facial deformities.

Lohan Wants Quick Vegas Wedding Like Spears.



Actress Lindsay Lohan would love to shock everyone with a quick Vegas wedding like pop star Britney Spears did with her first marriage.

The 19-year-old star would have no problem following in the singer's footsteps, because she would like to see what marriage feels like for a minute.

She explains, "Marriage is a big deal, but who's to say I'm not going to pull a 'Vegas' and get married just to get married and see what it's like for a minute?"

Lohan would be open to a spur-of-the-moment ceremony, because it's part of her impulsive nature.

Lohan adds, "Never say never. The things that you don't plan are the best.

"I'm a very spontaneous person."

'Idol' Ex-Girlfriend Says Why They Broke Up

How she kicked his butt
By TMZ.COM STAFF
(Mar. 13, 3:45PM ET) -- Fifteen-year-old Victoria Fairclough has good reason to consider herself more talented than her now famous 16-year-old ex-boyfriend, Kevin Covais.

She kicked his butt in a local talent competition in their hometown of Levittown, Long Island, New York, and then later beat him again in a county competition.

Victoria Fairclough and Covais met in a high school production of 'Godspell,' and became friends and later high school sweethearts.

But they broke up when 'Idol' began because they agreed he'd gain more popularity if his fans knew he was single.

In their Island Trees High School, 'I.T. Idol' competition, Kevin sang 'Bridge Over Troubled Waters' and 'Daughters', while Victoria sang 'The Wizard & I' (from the musical 'Wicked') and 'I Will Always Love You' -- she came in first -- there were no "places" following the winner.

"He was upset that I won," she says. "But he was still happy for me. He was proud of me."

Victoria says that she and Kevin still talk several times each day, even though his schedule's becoming more hectic now that 'Idol' is kicking into high gear.

"He's my best friend still," she says. "We'll remain friends," she continues, although she isn't sure if they'll ever get back together.

When Victoria and Kevin were dating, they'd just sit around and watch baseball and 'The Family Guy.' Sometimes, they'd sing together. And their song? ... 'Come What May' by Paula West, which later appeared on the 'Moulin Rouge' soundtrack.

And look for Victoria on 'Idol, Season 7'! Although she won't be old enough to audition for the show until the Fall of 2007, she says that she definitely plans on trying out.
