LC & LO get free stuff and smile, trying to paint a pretty picture over our troubled world

Celebubores, L-Con and Lo-Down hit the red carpet at the “The Do Something Awards: The Pre-Party of The Teen Choice Awards” and then proceeded to fill their giant potatoe sacks they had their minions carry, with all the freebies that they're currently flogging on ebay somewhere under the aliases 'Pug Morris' and 'I am not Lauren Conrad - psych - lookameehh'.

Christie Brinkley's First Interview

It's Christie Brinkley's first interview since her divorce settlement with ex-husband Peter Cook. ET was with Christie Brinkley in the Hamptons Sunday in her first red-carpet appearance since the trial.

When asked about dating again, Christie laughed: "I'm not going to get into that, I learned my lesson."

Christie was honored at the 19th annual Wild West Carnival Presented by Marquis Jet, to benefit the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, which helps children with developmental disorders.

As a mom of three, Christie tells ET why this cause is so dear to her. And speaking of kids, she confesses, even she is excited to see the Jolie-Pitt baby pics. Watch the video for more!

Teens Give It Up for Gossip Girl, Jonas Boys

The question now is, can Justin keep up with the Jonases?

Hot on the trail of a certain hunky pop star, the Jonas Brothers took home six ceremonial surfboards Sunday at the 10th Annual Teen Choice Awards, aka TC08, giving the fraternal rockers just 15 more to go until they match Justin Timberlake's grand total of 21 collected over the last decade.

More than 30 million Internet-savvy youngsters, preferably between the ages of 13 and 19, deemed the dapper trio Choice Breakout Band, Male Hotties and Male Red Carpet Icons, as well as the purveyors of the Choice Single ("When You Look Me in the Eyes," beating out Timberlake), Summer Song ("Burnin' Up") and Love Song ("When You Look Me in the Eyes").

Joe, Nick and Kevin's tally was matched only by the CW's teen soap with claws Gossip Girl, which also notched six wins (on a bedpost, naturally): Choice TV Drama, Breakout Show, breakout acting nods for Chace Crawford and Blake Lively (who was also named best actress in a drama) and top villain for the diabolical Ed Westwick.

"I feel like I'm still a teenager, because I'm perpetually in high school," Crawford, 23, said backstage.

And because today's youth has a lot of opinions, the honors bestowed upon the genetically blessed youngsters mentioned above were only the tip of the iceberg at the incredibly thorough (reality dance show is a category unto itself) kudosfest, which honors "choice" talent from the worlds of film, TV, music, comedy, sports, fashion and, for the first time, summer entertainment fare.

Chris Brown also needed a large vehicle to haul away the five boards he stacked up. The 19-year-old cutie was named Choice Male Artist and R&B Artist; his "Forever" was named top R&B track; his collaboration with Lil Mama and T-Pain, "Shawty Get Loose," won for rap/hip-hop track, and he shared a win with Jordin Sparks for choice musical hookup for their ballad "No Air."

Teen Choice Awards host Miley Cyrus was no slouch, either, toting home three of the show's unwieldy marks of distinction after opening the ceremony at Universal Studios' Gibson Amphitheatre with a performance of her new hit single "7 Things."

The 15-year-old queen o' the teens also scored bragging rights tonight when she and pal Mandy Jiroux took on Adam Sevani and Jon Chu's ACDC troupe in a dance-off. Judge Fergie, going largely by the audience's reaction, named M&M Cru the winner.

But at least Chu and Sevani's Step Up 2: The Streets had a Choice Movie Drama board to show for their past efforts.

A quick testament to just how heavy those surfboards are: David Beckham, named Choice Male Athlete, brought sons Cruz, Romeo and Brooklyn onstage to help him carry his board away. (Admittedly, he could have brought them up because they made for an enchanting photo op in their matching yellow shirts.)

Will Smith, an elder statesman at these types of events, also popped up onstage three times, first to collect Hancock's Choice Summer Action-Adventure Movie surfboard, and twice in honor of I Am Legend. The apocalyptic thriller was named top horror flick and Smith won for best actor in that genre. (He left sons Trey and Jaden sitting in the audience, however.)

Meanwhile, Fox, which will air the Teen Choice Awards Monday at 8 p.m. ET/PT, continued to feed the beast: Lauren Conrad was named Choice Female Reality Star for the third year in a row.

And while there would have been a party if even just all the people who supposedly have never dated walked the red carpet—Cyrus and Nick Jonas, Selena Gomez and Nick Jonas, Demi Lovato and Joe Jonas (quite the tangled web we weave when we sign up for face time on the Disney Channel)—many, many more celebs were around to keep the vertices of any love triangles in their separate corners.

See who else showed up for the youth-sanctioned fun in our arrivals gallery.

Keep checking back for more coverage of the 2008 Teen Choice Awards. 




Dodgy Olsen Demands Immunity In Ledger Doping

In the heated days of confusion and mourning immediately following the January death of Heath Ledger, many of the actor's admirers loudly proclaimed it absurd to raise questions about the role played by the actor's friend Mary-Kate Olsen in his death and aftermath. New York police concluded their investigation into Ledger's death without even interviewing the elfish young actress, even though, as the Post repeatedly pointed out, she was told of Ledger's death before emergency responders and even though her bodyguards may have arrived at his apartment just before paramedics, who Olsen did not bother to call. Having stayed on the story, the Post today reports that federal drug agents are pressing Olsen hard to cooperate in their investigation into how Ledger obtained the powerful painkiller OxyContin without a prescription — and into what happened to the bottle:

According to sources, all of the drugs in Ledger's body and discovered nearby in prescription bottles were legally obtained from two physicians - with the exception of OxyContin, a powerful painkiller.

Investigators "are trying to ID the source of the OxyContin," a source said. "Did it come from a dealer, from a friend? If he had a bottle from a friend, was it taken by someone else before police responded? That is what is trying to be determined."

But Olsen, the tabloid claims, is refusing to talk until she gets immunity from prosecution. Immunity, one naturally wonders, from what? Would supplying a prescription drug to Ledger carry so much jailtime, if Olsen even did that? Or is she worried about something more nefarious — like tampering with a crime scene?

Or perhaps Olsen's alleged request is more routine, a pro forma form of legal hardball designed to bring authorities into contact on the most favorable terms possible. But unlike most parties to an investigation, Olsen is a celebrity with an image to uphold, an image that can be damaged simply by trying to get immunity in the first place — as today's Post story shows.



Jessica Simpson: "John Mayer Cherished Our Love"

Jessica Simpson: "John Mayer Cherished Our Love"

Jessica Simpson recently spilled to Elle on a bunch of stuff, including her relationship with John Mayer, even though they've been broken up for over a year. She waxed uber-cheesy with comments like this:
"John believed in the Jessica Simpson that's within. He cherished our love. He helped make me the woman I am today. John is going to be an amazing man for someone, but I know that I was supposed to be with someone else."

She sounds like she's still a little too attached to him, if you ask me... not unlike the lasting attachment John's current squeeze Jennifer Aniston reportedly still has for Brad Pitt. Why does John Mayer attract these needy women, I wonder?



Anne Hathaway’s nude photos seized by the FBI


There are said to be nude photos of Anne Hathaway among the effects seized by the FBI in their raid of her boyfriend’s hidden storage space. Hathaway’s boyfriend of four years, Raffaello Follieri, was arrested late last month on federal charges of money laundering and fraud after an elaborate scheme in which he bilked investors out of millions. He claimed to be the CFO of the Vatican and told investors he could get Catholic land in the US at bargain basement prices. Follieri hired church officials to accompany him to meetings and bribed Vatican employees to help him pull off the scheme. Hathaway broke it off with Follieri after his arrest and he is said to be desperate to try and get back in touch with her.

Hathaway’s effects, including her personal diaries, were among the items confiscated by the FBI in their search for evidence in the case against Follieri. Now it seems that nude photos of the actress taken by her ex were also found. Her brother was seen trying to retrieve items from the storage which the FBI had raided the day before, and it’s possible he was looking specifically for those pictures.

The Enquirer has learned exclusively that her ex-lover Raffaello Follieri took naked photos of the actress. Follieri was arrested June 24 and charged with 11 counts of fraud and money laundering…

In additional to the naked photos he took of Anne, 25, he also prized a sizzling photo of her in black fishnet stockings, a garter belt and bustier that totally exposed her top. Follieri, 30, supposedly paid a very famous photographer to take that steamy shot.

The Enquirer learned that just recently, Anne’s brother Michael tried to gain access to a hidden storage room in the Bronx where Follieri had storied some of his and Anne’s belongings after he moved out of his apartment.

“Michael went to the storage facility, but was told he was a day late. The day before (July 15), FBI agents had removed numerous documents, photos and what were believed to be Anne’s diaries from the storage room….

Michael was told that he could not get into the room or take anything out.”

[From The National Enquirer, print edition, August 11, 2008]

Follieri is now in NY’s Metropolitan Correctional Center and the Enquirer notes that he has been unable to raise bail, which has been set at $21 million. He is an obvious flight risk considering the depths of his lies and his ties to Italy.

Hathaway appeared topless in Brokeback Mountain, so it’s not like her image will be ruined if these are average nude photos and they get out. Maybe the FBI will keep them safe though and she doesn’t have much to worry about.


SNL: Aidy Bryant – Adele covers L.A. Law

New York on Loveline: Fun for the whole family.

On my way home last night, my friend and I were listening to Loveline and ONTD's bb New York was the guest. I was elated because she's an amazing guest and my love for her has grown thanks to ONTD.

And in light of the ONTD member who called in to tell Josh Groban about the treehouse, I wanted to call in and talk to New York about our lovely community as well (and I wanted to talk to her anyway). You can hear the segment here.

And the BEST call was from a gay man who wanted oral sex advice from Her Majesty, which you can hear here. It's FANTASTIC.

Both clips get pretty explicit, but it's Loveline, so it's still sort of clean for the FCC.

The Presets - Talk Like That Video

New video for Talk Like That, directed by the mighty, exceptionally talented French duo Jonas and Francois [Justice, Kanye West, Madonna]. The video sees a tragically devoted, timelessly beautiful angel praying at the alter of The Presets, followed by a ritualistic destruction of instruments, some wonderfully ethereal slow mo dancing, and a surreal sequence of Kim and Jules in some kind of teenage bedroom talking about cream and sneakers......

If there’s one thing Paris Hilton is obsessed with — aside from her menagerie of furry pets and rock star boyfriend, of course — it’s fashion. Not content just wearing the latest look, the heiress has built up a mini-empire of numerous lines of clothing and accessories. PEOPLE caught up with the reality star at the Macy’s Vegas launch of her latest venture, Paris Hilton Footwear. “I love shoes and I think every girl loves shoes,” she explains of her choice to branch out into pumps and flats. “I already have clothing and purses and watches and other fashion accessories so I thought it would be perfect to dress head to toe in me!” Aside from being her very own muse, the jetsetter finds easy inspiration all around her. “Just from traveling all around the world and going to fashion shows and being in Saint Tropez and seeing different shoes everywhere, you feel inspired. So, when I go down and have my design meetings I know exactly what I want in a shoe.” Fortunately for her fans, Paris Hilton Footwear isn’t all style and no substance — the star also kept comfort in mind. “They have a little heart padding which no shoe has, so with the pads the bottom of your feet are really comfortable and you can dance all night long in them.” And you don’t need Paris’s trust funds to buy them — the shoes will retail for $59-$195.

Hulk Hogan: "I Wish I Was Still With My Wife"

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
Hulk Hogan and Linda Bollea are embroiled in a nasty divorce, but the WWE wrestler revealed Friday, he wishes they were still married.

“As crazy as that sounds to say, I wish I was still with my wife,” Hogan told Access Hollywood's Maria Menounos.

After 23 years of marriage, Bollea, 48, surprised Hogan, 54, last November by filing for divorce. (He learned of the split from a newspaper reporter.)

Hogan shot down rumors that he and Bollea parted ways to protect their assets after a law suit was filed by the family of the boy permanently injured in their son Nick Bollea's car wreck.

“If this is a ploy, her being intimate with a 19-year-old kid is pretty good acting," Hogan said. “For me to be able to handle… my 50-year-old wife sleeping in a bed with a 19-year-old boyfriend and using my gym, and driving my cars, and living in my house. I guess we’ve got a pretty good act going on ‘cause that’s a lot to take on."

According to Hogan, the divorce was Bollea's idea.

“It wasn’t an argument, it was, ‘Hey, I don’t love you, I don’t want to be with you, I don’t want to see you anymore.’ It was the real deal,” Hogan told Menounos.

Since then, the two have been engaged in a messy legal war.

“Without a doubt, this one is the most formidable opponent I’ve ever run into," Hogan recently told

"You talk about dirty tricks: Brass knuckles, steel knuckles, cheap shots, tripping people up. I’ve never seen anybody in the wrestling business that has more dirty tricks than she does!" he added. "I guess I taught her well.”

How long will they be battling in court?

“This is a simple divorce – there’s no custody, there’s just a big pile of junk that we’ve accumulated. We should split it," Hogan told Menounos."But my wife's lawyer has told different magazines there’s gonna be a war."

Hogan continued, “This is the money that I saved for my family, and money that Linda could walk away with, money that I saved for my children, that they’re just, they’re just wasting [it] and burning [it] up.”

Is Lindsay Jealous of Blake?

Image and video hosting by TinyPic
From Hilary Duff to Paris Hilton to... well, you can name just about any young female star — Lindsay Lohan has been rumored to have a feud with all of them at some point in her young life. And now, according to a new report in the NY Post, you can add Gossip Girl star Blake Lively to that list.

An item in the Post's Page Six Magazine claims that when Blake tried to pay a visit to the Queens, NY, set of Ugly Betty to catch up with her Sisterhood of the Traveling Pants co-star America Ferrerra, she ended up inadvertently getting on LiLo's bad side.

According to the story, Blake's arrival on the set, where Lindsay had been filming a guest-starring role for an upcoming show, caused the paparazzi that had been following Linds to suddenly shift focus and start snapping pics of the Gossip Girl actress.

No longer the center of the cameramen's attention, Lindsay reportedly slunk back to her trailer where gal-pal Samantha Ronson was waiting.


Days of 'Thunder'

"Tropic Thunder" is the funniest movie of the summer—so funny, in fact, that you start laughing before the film itself has begun. This needs explaining. Ben Stiller's movie is about a gaggle of pampered, self-important Hollywood folks who go into the jungle to shoot a big-budget Vietnam War movie (called "Tropic Thunder") and stumble into real danger when heavily armed drug smugglers take them for the real deal. But like any "real" movie, "Thunder" starts with a few trailers. The first is a frenetic ad for "Booty Sweat" energy drinks, which turns out to be the product of rapper turned actor Alpa Chino (Brandon T. Jackson), who we will soon discover is one of the stars of this Southeast Asian war epic. This is followed by more priceless fake trailers of upcoming movies from "Tropic Thunder" stars. Tug Speedman (Stiller) is a fading action star ("Scorcher VI") who's tried (and failed) to earn respectability by playing a retarded farm boy in "Simple Jack." The belligerent, drug-addled comedy star Jeff Portnoy (Jack Black) is seen in "The Fatties 2," a fart-filled sendup of every lowbrow Hollywood comedy in the past flatulent decade. And the multiple-Oscar-winning Australian actor Kirk Lazarus (Robert Downey Jr.) is glimpsed in his upcoming forbidden-love epic as a medieval monk making eyes at Tobey Maguire. Can the movie itself live up to this inspired warm-up? No problem. This raucous, low-down commentary on Hollywood filmmaking, war movies, narcissistic actors and the thin line between makebelieve and reality is the most giddily entertaining, wickedly smart and cinematically satisfying comedy in a season overloaded with yuk-'em-ups. If there's any justice, "Thunder" (which opens Aug. 13) should be the breakthrough moment for Stiller as a director.

Stiller the director? Mention his name, and the first image that probably comes to most minds is a pathetic suitor standing in a doorway facing Cameron Diaz with a gob of semen dangling from his ear. The Farrelly brothers' gross-out classic "There's Something About Mary" (1998) catapulted Stiller into the pantheon of comic stars. He's become one of the 10 most highly paid actors in Hollywood, and arguably one of the most powerful. But the funny thing was, acting stardom was never his real dream. Stiller is now in Vancouver, starring in a sequel to his popular family film "Night at the Museum." Sitting in a hotel room drinking coffee after a long day's shoot, the 42-year-old star remembers the moment he discovered his calling—to make movies. He was 20, performing in a 1986 revival of John Guare's "The House of Blue Leaves" on Broadway, when he picked up a video camera and made a little movie called "Portrait of the Artist as an Old Man" with the show's star, John Mahoney. "He played the most arrogant, alcoholic a––hole, passed out in the gutter at the Plymouth Theater with a bottle in his hand. I remember showing it at a party and people laughing. It was one of those moments where I was going, 'Oh wow, this is good. I like this feeling. This is sort of what I want to do'."

Art-lover Orlando Bloom joins the celebrities celebrating Tracey Emin

As well as showing off his newly shorn haircut, British actor Orlando Bloom revealed his love for modern art on Saturday.

Heart-throb Orlando was part of the star-studded audience at the opening of acclaimed artist Tracey Emin's new exhibition - a major retrospective of her work - at Edinburgh's Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art.

Missing the event was Orlando's beautiful girlfriend Miranda Kerr, 25. The Aussie model is back in her homeland, where she will make her catwalk debut for department store David Jones on Tuesday.

Victoria's Secret star Miranda took the opportunity to put paid to rumours that her relationship with the 31-year-old was over, saying they were looking forward to seeing each other more when she returns to New York.

"He's working on a movie, but hopefully we will be able to co-ordinate our schedules so we can spend some time together," she said.

Meanwhile, in Edinburgh, Orlando looked very much at home as he chatted to the Turner Prize-nominated artist and the gallery staff, as well as mingling with guests, including Scottish author Ian Rankin and artist Sam Taylor Wood and her partner, Jay Jopling.

Won't someone think of the trees!

NEW YORK (AP) -- Harry Potter is still king, but the final book of Stephenie Meyer's "Twilight" series did manage a million-selling debut.

"Breaking Dawn," the fourth of Meyer's sensational teen vampire series, sold 1.3 million copies in the first 24 hours after its midnight, Aug. 2 release. Publisher Little, Brown Books for Young Readers announced Monday that it has gone back for 500,000 more copies, making the total print run 3.7 million.

The numbers for "Breaking Dawn" are comparable to the openings of a pair of famous memoirs: former President Clinton's "My Life" and Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton's "Living History." But they don't approach the unveiling of "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows." The seventh and final volume of J.K. Rowling's fantasy series sold 8.3 million copies in its first 24 hours in the United States alone.


They should just waited for all the books that got returned to the bookstores by irate readers.

madonna is that you?

A woman I have known for many years did something to her face not all that long ago, and for a few weeks afterward, I was not able to put my finger on it. Did she get her eyes done? Restylane injections? Botox? Then I thought, Oh dear God, she got a face-lift. No one whom I consider a friend and a contemporary had yet gone that far. But there was no denying she had done something major, and frankly I was worried. Had she ruined her pretty face? As the curtain of hair slowly parted a little each week, I could see that her lips were bigger. Nowhere near overcooked-hot-dog-turning-inside-out bigger like Meg Ryan’s, and not even duck-bill bigger like Courteney Cox’s—but big enough to make me feel uncomfortable looking at her mouth when she talked. Don’t look at her lips!

Check out Senor Bales gravel pit

THANK goodness, The Nerve weren’t the the only ones who noticed Christian Bale‘s rasping vocal display in The Dark Knight.

Jake Coyle, The Associated Press’s entertainment writer, reports:

“As Batman has gotten darker, his voice has gotten deeper. As some critics suggest, Bale and The Dark Knight may have reached a threshold, at least audibly.”

We were worried Bale was about to hand over the batsuit for the next installment to Kiefer Sutherland. That Kiefer bloke never spoke above a hush, no matter how stressed he was on 24. So what gives with Bale’s hoarse voice? We didn’t see him light up once in the film, although you’d fully understand it, considering the runaround Heath gives him. We suggest Alfred and Lucius Fox should give Batman a chest x-ray - it’s not like they’re short of fancy gadgets. Get this man some attention, for Gotham’s sake!

Beckham Does Mens Health

David Beckham is featured in the September 2008 issue of Mens Health Magazine, which hits newsstands on August 12.

On being told he was too small to play soccer professionally: As upset as I was at the time, it made me think, 'I'm going to prove I can play football professionally.

On being famous: There is this madness around me, around my family. Without a doubt, out on the field is where I'm most comfortable, where I'm happiest, because I know what I'm doing and I know I can do it.

On playing golf: I used to play golf, quite a few years ago, but to be honest, I’d rather spend 4 hours with the kids than 4 hours on a golf course. As much as it can be relaxing, it’s a frustrating sport. My way of relaxing is listening to music and spending time with the kids.

STARTLING NEWS: I am not the only one who thinks JC is gay anything other than an EXTREMELY HETEROSEXUAL, PUSSY-LOVING MAN!

Wow, really JC? Really? You're actually going to leave the house in a full-on tuxedo jacket layered over a v-neck summer sweater? And then you'll button up the jacket? Where do you get these ideas, old Bugs Bunny cartoons?
Listen, I know that being in a monochromatically dressed boyband during your formative fashion years makes you an abused child of sorts, but the other four have all made peace with their past and are now looking, well, better than you.
Plus, everyone thinks you're gay - not that there's anything wrong with that - but you'd think a guy who doth protest so much wouldn't dress like the newest conductor of the San Francisco Gay Men's Orchestra. So, get your hand off the wand and hire a stylist, or at least a pyromaniac to torch your closet.

Pam bans close-ups of her used up face

The 41-year-old actress is currently starring in ‘Pam: Girl on the Loose’
and is reportedly worried about viewers being able to see her aging looks.

A source told Britain’s Daily Express newspaper: “Pamela still looks
fantastic but is clearly determined to look as great as possible on the

“Producers have been informed she has to appear in only flattering lighting
– and close ups on her face are apparently a no-no.

“Pamela has been around this game long enough to know the pitfalls of a bad
camera angle.”

The eight-part program debuted in the US last night and has
been panned by critics.

One described the former ‘Baywatch’ beauty as “an unapologetically
narcissistic, self-sexualized diva who revels in her earthiness”, adding:

“Age may have prompted her to prove there is a person underneath all that
hair, behind all that decolletage, but it's a crowded genre and ‘Girl on the
Loose’ seems just a little too little too late.”

The rumor about Joe and Taylor Swift is on the front page of AOL Music. They were spotted at a shopping village together last week.

The rumor mill is heating up about a supposed romance between Taylor Swift and Joe Jonas of the Jonas Brothers. According to Nashville’s Tennessean newspaper, the two 18-year-old stars were spotted together at an outdoor shopping village in Swift’s hometown of Hendersonville, Tenn. last week. A source told the paper that they were sitting “very close” to one another and looked to be on a date. But Swift insists you shouldn’t believe everything you read.

“We’re all friends,” the country star tells PEOPLE magazine of her relationship with the band of brothers, without going into anymore detail.

Swift recently joined the pop princes on their tour stops in both Dallas and Anaheim, Calif. She has also filmed a performance for the upcoming Jonas Brothers concert movie.

Dolly Parton: LEAVE BRITNEY (and Lindsay) ALONE!

Dolly Parton says it's time to leave a couple of the world's most famous starlets alone.

"Poor little Britney Spears and Lindsay Lohan," Parton said at her concert last night at L.A.'s Greek Theatre. "Ain't it awful? If those little girls slept with as many men as they say in the tabloids, why their little butts would have more fingerprints than the FBI!"

All kidding aside, Parton said, "I kinda feel sorry for them. We should give those two a break."

It's too bad Spears and Lohan weren't in the audience to hear Parton's got their back.

In the house were T.R. Knight, Vince Vaughn, Katherine Heigl with singer hubby Josh Kelley and Rose McGowan.

Parton also talked about playing second fiddle to Miley Cyrus after guest-starring on Hannah Montana as "Aunt Dolly." "A lot of little kids come up to me and say, 'Aunt Dolly!' " Parton said. And I say, 'Would you little girls like an autograph?' And they say, 'Oh, yes! When you see Miley, please get us one.' "

Parton sang almost all of her hits ("Coat of Many Colors," "Islands in the Stream," "9 to 5," etc.) in the more than two-hour show. She performed a honky-tonked cover of the Fine Young Cannibals' "She Drives Me Crazy" and belted out "Backwoods Barbie," the title song of her new album that will also be featured in the new 9 to 5 stage musical.

She even got a bit political—kinda.

Some fans wore T-shirts reading, "Dolly for President."

"I don’t think so!" Parton said of her presidential aspirations. "I think there have been enough boobs in the White House."

Commenting on how times have changed, she said of this year's presidential race, "We've had a woman, we have a black man and an old stiff."

But that's as serious as she got when it came to current events.

"People are always asking me in interviews, 'What do you think of foreign affairs?' I just say, 'I've had a few.' "

And the boob jokes were aplenty. "They say, 'What do you think about global warming?' " Parton said. "I say, 'If my globes get too warm, I just take my sweater off.' "


Dolly Parton is the fiercest bitch alive and don't even disagree with me I WILL CUT YOU

Selena Gomez: Strictly for Kids

No need to worry about Selena Gomez. Yet.

The rising star has her head screwed on pretty straight, as she reveals on The Morning Show With Mike and Juliet. She dismisses talk of a feud with Miley Cyrus, discusses wearing a purity ring and wants to help get teens to vote.

Plus, she knows who her real fans are and, more important, knows who her really creepy fans are...

"I try to take pictures with all the kids. When it's crazy old men trying to take my picture, I'm sorry. I'm strictly with the kids."

See? Smart, huh.

The only thing that tripped our teen-idol early-warning system? She reveals her celebrity crush is Shia LaBeouf.

Considering the headlines he's made this week, well, we just hope she'll get over that one fast.

Anderson Cooper Rips Into 'Living Lohan'

His Dina impression is PRICELESS!

One of the best things about Anderson Cooper is that he anchors a two-hour news broadcast every night, and yet seems to watch as much reality TV as the rest of us. Anderson filled in for Regis today on Live With Regis and Kelly and unveiled his latest D-list celebrity impersonations, Dina Lohan and the "leathah" woman from Project Runway (as seen in the clip above). Anderson theorizes that the "atrocious" Living Lohan is only on the air because, "I guess people are hoping that maybe this other person, Lindsay, is going to show up, but until then we're stuck with these horrific people." Oh, Anderson. That's exactly how I feel about Regis and Kelly every morning that you're not there!


Brad and Angelina deny conceiving twins by IVF

Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Angelina Jolie has talked about how surprised she was to have twins, saying “We weren’t expecting twins! So it did shock us, and we jumped to six quickly.” Many people speculated that Knox and Vivienne were conceived by in vitro fertilization, because that seems to be all the rage lately and it’s the most obvious explanation when twins and multiples are born to wealthy families. Plus there were tabloid stories ahead of Angelina’s pregnancy that she was consulting a fertility doctor in an effort to gain weight and prepare for another biological child. US Weekly even ran a whole “It was In Vitro!” cover story about it last week. In the article in People accompanying the 19 page photo spread featuring her newborn twins, Angelina denies that she had IVF, and said that if she did she would certainly talk about it. That sounds true since she’s so open about things in general:

Jolie says she and Pitt were “in shock and could not stop laughing” when they learned they were having twins, and denied speculation that they had conceived the children through in-vitro fertilization.

“If they had been conceived through IVF, we would have been happy to discuss it,” she says. “But we have been fortunate never to have had fertility problems.”

As for the twins’ personalities, Pitt says, “Viv is proving to resemble Ange in spirit, attitude and physicality. And Knox, a bit of me.”

Regardless I think Angelina is telling the truth. The odds of her conceiving fraternal twins naturally are 1%, according to Us Weekly, but 25% via in vitro, which is why they gambled on that “It was In Vitro!” story. If the gossip magazines should know anything, it’s that Brad and Angelina aren’t subject to your petty statistics. They’ve already won the celebrity lottery.

What's with Batman's voice in 'Dark Knight'?

-- Though "The Dark Knight" has been a bona fide cultural event, boasting rave reviews and boffo box office, it hasn't been immune to criticism. Some have quibbled with its political undercurrents, and others have criticized a muddled theme.

 As Batman, Christian Bale's voice is deeper and raspier than his voice as Bruce Wayne.
But here's the critique most widely held: Why does Batman talk like the offspring of Clint Eastwood and a grizzly bear?

Two of the Top 4 SYTYCD Contestants Hospitalized

Two dancers in the Top 4 of Fox’s So You Think You Can Dance collapsed at rehearsals Saturday and had to be rushed by ambulance to nearby Cedars Sinai Hospital–just days before the reality series season finale.

“Two went in [Saturday] and so there was no more rehearsals, and today [Sunday] all the rehearsals were called off,” ballroom expert and SYTYCD judge Mary Murphy confirmed to PEOPLE at Fox’s 2008 Teen Choice Awards in L.A. on Sunday. “The kids are completely dehydrated – two of them. I’m sure they’re doing a lot of blood work to see if there’s anything else.”

A source close to the show said that the two dancers are out of the hospital, doing better and will return to rehearsals Monday. Reps for Fox had no comment and did not release the identities of the two dancers.

Stephen ‘Twitch’ Boss, Katee Shean, Courtney Galiano and Joshua Allen are the four remaining dancers in the competition.

Murphy went on to explain that in all fairness, “the other two [dancers] could not rehearse as well, and so hopefully everybody is going to be in the same boat…hopefully everybody will be refreshed by having a full day off.”

Leading up to the finale, the dancers have been putting in 10 to 12 hour rehearsals a day, because “they want it so bad,” says Murphy, adding “so, they keep pushing themselves and pushing themselves and not letting anybody know that, ‘Hey, I’m running on empty,’ and then it catches up on them and then they collapse.”

The live finale airs Thursday on FOX (8 p.m. ET).

Lawyer: Mary-Kate Olsen Had 'Nothing to Do' with Heath Ledger's Drugs

Mary-Kate Olsen
doesn't know where Heath Ledger got the drugs that killed him, and has already provided investigators with "relevant information," her lawyer says in a statement.

"Despite tabloid speculation, Mary-Kate Olsen had nothing whatsoever to do with the drugs found in Heath Ledger's home or his body, and she does not know where he obtained them," said the statement from attorney Michael C. Miller on Monday.

The statement was released following a report, confirmed by PEOPLE, that Olsen, 22, wants immunity from prosecution before she will cooperate with a federal investigation into close friend Ledger's death from an accidental overdose.

"Regarding the government's investigation, at Ms. Olsen's request, we have provided the government with relevant information including facts in the chronology of events surrounding Mr. Ledger's death and the fact that Ms. Olsen does not know the source of the drugs Mr. Ledger consumed," the statement from her attorney continues.

The statement concludes: "We don't know the source of the information being quoted in the media regarding the government's inquiry, but these descriptions are incomplete and inaccurate."

Olsen Twins Butt of Jokes at Bob Saget Roast

It's probably a good thing that Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen skipped last night's Comedy Central Roast of their Full House father, Bob Saget.

Hosted by another Full House alum, John Stamos, the comedic beatdown included loads of raunchy sexcentric jokes about the Olsen twins.

Roasters like Jon Lovitz, The Sarah Silverman Program's Brian Posehn and Gilbert Gottfried showed no restraint during the two-hour taping on a Warner Bros. soundstage in Burbank. They even made several cracks about having sex wtih the Olsens when they were underage.

Perhaps Saget knew what was in store for him.

Before the show even started, he said, “I don’t have my children here. I don’t have my mother here. I can’t keep it clean tonight."

Saget did, however, bring along his girlfriend, Michelle Ghatchi.

But the Olsens may not have to worry about the jokes getting much TV time when the roast airs Aug. 17. "All our roasts tend to be super filthy," a Comedy Central rep said today. "This ranked right up there."

The rep also explained that Saget will get a chance to view the first cut of the roast, and the network "will work with him on any edit requests."

In Defense of Christian Bale

I thought this was a very odd criticism from David Denby:

It’s a workable dramatic conflict, but only half the team can act it. Christian Bale has been effective in some films, but he’s a placid Bruce Wayne, a swank gent in Armani suits, with every hair in place. He’s more urgent as Batman, but he delivers all his lines in a hoarse voice, with an unvarying inflection.

Bale's performance in the film isn't as interesting as Heath Ledger's or Aaron Eckhardt's but he's "a placid Bruce Wayne" because Bruce Wayne is a placid guy, a character invented to disguise the identity of Batman. Similarly, Batman delivers all his lines in a hoarse voice, with an unvarying inflection, because he's trying to make his voice unrecognizable as Bruce Wayne's voice. Yes, it's weird to listen to. But why shouldn't it be weird to listen to a vigilante dressed in bat armor? The trouble with some of Batman's conversations is that, especially near the end of the film, he's speaking badly written dialogue -- nobody does ponderous exposition well.

The other thing I wanted to say was that while the praise Ledger has gotten is very much deserved, I'd appreciate some more acknowledgment that one reason he's able to do such an extraordinary job is that the Joker is one of the great pop characters. He, Batman, and Two Face, with the various different takes on them presented over the years, are great American myths, which is why their stories can be told and re-told over and over again in different ways to great effect. The Nolan/Ledger version of the Joker seems based on the Joker of The Killing Joke and A Death in the Family rather than springing ex nihilo from the filmmakers. Not that there's anything wrong with that, but it's worth acknowledging.

Just to counter all the negative Batman voice articles.

The Mummy 4.......REALLY?

Rick O’Connell and the rest of the crew from the “Mummy” series have fought through The Rock and battled Jet Li, but could it be that the most serious immortal threat to society isn’t a mummy at all, but…

You know what? We’re just gonna go ahead and put a massive spoiler warning here before finishing this sentence. If you haven’t seen “Mummy 3” yet, read at your own risk.

…Rick himself?

Brendan Frasier as an immortal hero up against an immortal villain is just one of many ideas “Mummy: Tomb of the Dragon Emperor” director Rob Cohen wants to explore in another installment of the blockbuster series, he told MTV News, insisting that a fourth installment is all but guaranteed if audiences respond well to “Mummy 3.”

“Rick, because he was treated by the pool of eternal life, Rick is now immortal. I’d love to explore how that plays out for him,” Cohen said. “Another spoiler, Jonathan [John Hannah] winds up with the artifact in this film and he doesn’t realize, nor do we, what its powers are. In my mind, that artifact still has a lot of prizes in it, the eye of Shangri La, this big diamond.”

When we spoke to Maria Bello in February, she was adamant that there would be more “Mummy” movies, even going so far as to predict the fourth would take place in the Amazon. When we caught up with Fraser a few months later, he suggested Peru.

Geographically, they were too close for coincidence. We wondered then, somewhat rhetorically, did they talk about it with each other beforehand?

You bet, Cohen said, declaring that Peru or Mexico would absolutely be the setting for “Mummy 4.”

“What I’m really happy about is that, by taking ‘The Mummy’ out of Egypt and putting it in China, by exploring a different approach to the quest for immortality, we now have it clear that the ‘Mummy’ franchise can travel,” he said. “Now we know that if we want to go to Mexico or we want to go to Peru, we can because there’s a cultural truth there of the mummies and these beautiful cultures.

“They have a lot of mummies. The Aztec culture had a lot of mummies and some of their mummy designs for the Foundation Army were taken from Mexican mummies that they have found,” he added. “So I think that somehow that might make the basis of a good story.”

What do you think? Would you like to see “Mummy 4”? Mexico sound about right for you? What about Fraser as an immortal? Sound off on your thoughts below.

NEW Kaiser Chiefs album

Our new album is called 'Off With Their Heads', it is released worldwide on Monday 13th October 2008 (14th in USA).

It will feature all of these songs, in this order:

1. Spanish Metal
2. Never Miss A Beat
3. Like It Too Much
4. You Want History
5. Can't Say What I Mean
6. Good Days Bad Days
7. Tomato In The Rain
8. Half The Truth
9. Always Happens Like That

The album was produced by Mark Ronson & Eliot James at RAK & Eastcote Studios in London, and mixed by Andy Wallace (He did Nevermind and LCD Soundsystem), with a few tracks mixed by Cenzo Townshend. We started recording in February this year. We'd heard that Mark Ronson was keen to produce us and we had three new songs that we wanted to record. We also wanted to try working with someone who was relatively new in the producer world and Eliot James kept getting recommended to us. Due to the fact that time was not in abundance for anyone, we decided to all work together and see what happened. Those initial two weeks in February were so productive and enjoyable that we quickly had more songs and carried on, breaking off to write and rehearse back in Leeds and to see the world playing festivals. We never intended to make an album at first, in fact we were going to have a year off...

(Owen Wilson strolls along the beach with a female friend after a good swim)

Hollywood funnyman Owen Wilson looks as though he's back to his old self as he relaxes on a sunny beach with a mystery lady.
Wilson appeared to be in good spirits as he swam and then strolled along the beach with the pretty woman.
The Starsky and Hutch star looked in good shape and frequently smiled during his spot of outdoor exercise on the California coastline.

Playgirl Magazine, meant as a spinoff of Playboy, but for women, is officially shutting down and exclusively going all web.

According to new reports, the magazine filled with hot guys and celebrity men in sexy poses, is closing up shop and moving to the internet!

According to Dlisted, Playgirl is shutting down and going all-web. Media Bistro (via Gawker) reports the January/February 2009 issue will be their last. After that, you can get it all on their website.

Oh well. Check out some photos here!



Lemmy of Motorhead Gets His Own Documentary

Oh Lemmy, how we love your relentless dedication to all things rock and roll. If that weird growth on your face had a mouth it would groan obscenities incoherently, while spewing whiskey. How dreamy. I'm glad you have finally gotten your own doc. I mean it's certainly about time, considering the fact that everyone from Peter Hook to Ozzy thinks you are a god. I mean, maybe you are. Or maybe you are just the last of the great Metal giants. Either way we salute you.

Lemmy: The Movie is due to be released in 2009.


also, amber tamblyn and david cross go public!

Remember way back in the day when we broke the news that Amber Tamblyn was dating David Cross? Like a solid month before anyone else caught on?

Yeah. WE REMEMBER. (Grrrrrr)

Anyhoo, it appears the couple is still going strong. They were all smiles today when we spotted them out walking the dog through the streets of NYC.

Now, y'all seem to be quite vocal in regards to this couple. Any thoughts on the Tamblyn-Cross pairing?

It could have been a junket like any other. Overfed journalists hurling soft-ball questions at the creators and stars of the upcoming comedy TROPIC THUNDER. Enjoying an afternoon in the air-conditioned comfort of The Four Seasons Hotel in Beverly Hills.

But something went wrong…oh, so horribly wrong when someone mistakenly invited a large, heavily tattooed dj from a local morning show who obviously missed the memo on ‘junket etiquette’. Or any etiquette, for that matter. It was especially interesting to watch reactions as tattoo-boy asked former addict ROBERT DOWNEY JR. who he’d like to “drink a brew and smoke a blunt with”. Listen in to what happened before publicists swept in and escorted him to another area:

Lohan’s dad not ready for a gay wedding
Image and video hosting by TinyPic

Gay marriage may be legal in California now, but wedding bells don’t seem to be in Lindsay Lohan and Sam Ronson’s immediate future.

And if the couple were to wed, Lohan’s dad Michael probably wouldn’t play the proud father giving away the bride.

“I haven’t heard anything (about an upcoming wedding) from Lindsay, but if she was marrying Sam, I don’t think she’d ask me to walk her down the aisle,” says Michael. “She knows about my (Christian) faith … she just wouldn’t ask.”

That’s not to say that he doesn’t support Lindsay and a possible relationship with Ronson, he just supports her in more indirect ways.

“I want her to be happy and healthy and stay on the right path,” he says. “If I discuss (her relationship), I say that I want her to be happy.”


He is such an asshole.
