Vader Public Service Announcment

Yeah, this video really doesn't have much to do with anything, other than the fact that it involves a movie icon (Vader), and that it's pretty funny. I was bored, so here you go...

We're a little sick of Lindsay, but...

The 20 year-old-actress (yeah I know, we forget she works, too) is taking classes for her next role as a stripper by taking pole-dancing classes. The film, called "I know who killed me," won't contain a nude Lohan. "She's wearing pasties," a rep said.
Of course she is! Who do you think this is?

K Fed is Still A Loser...

Who knew Britney's tragic ex could write??? I thought he only impregnated people and back-up-danced for a living??? On another note: I bet he regrets giving a shout-out to producer JR Rotem (Brit's new lovah-- let's hope they don't procreate!) on his single "Lose Control"..."Yeah! Got you on this dude, ha ha! Federation Records, JR, We did it again. Whoo!"... OOPS!

Actor Peter Boyle dies at the age of 71

In a bit of tragic news, actor Peter Boyle has passed away at the age of 71. The actor, who was well known for his comedic roles as the Monster in Mel Brook's "Young Frankenstein," and Frank Barone in "Everybody Loves Raymond," died yesterday in New York. In news reports released Wednesday morning, the actor's publicist stated that Boyle had passed away at New York Presbyterian Hospital after suffering from multiple myeloma and heart disease (the actor had previously suffered a stroke in 1990 and a heart attack in 1999). Boyle is survived by his wife, Loraine Alterman (whom he met on the set of Young Frankenstein), and their two daughters. He will surely be missed.

Nicole Gives Excuse for Vicodin Usage! (Like we should believe this one...)

As reported in U.S. Weekly, Nicole Richie excused her heavy-duty painkiller Vicodin usage on MENSTRUATION CRAMPS! She claims that she only pops the pill "occasionally" to relieve the pain. NOTE TO NICOLE: WHAT HAPPENED TO USING MIDOL OR ALEVE? WAS YOUR DRUG DEALER CLOSER THAN THE NEAREST PHARMACY? Furthermore, Nicole says that she is, in fact, 95 lbs, not the wee 85 lbs that the police reported after her DUI...yeah, whatever.

Ok, so if Lindsay gave up drinking, why is she sporting yucky jail garb? Has she been arrested for drug possession yet?? Or is this another fashion statement gone horribly wrong??

Posted by Laura

She Said WHAT?

"I haven't had a drink in seven days. Or anything. I'm not even legal to, so why would I? I don't drink when I go to clubs. I drink with my friends at home, but there's no need to. I feel better not drinking. It's more fun. I have Red Bull. I didn't feel bad before. I never felt bad. I just wanted to, like, find a balance. I was out too much. I was too caught up. I mean, I'm 20 years old. I was off from work, I was getting ready to start a film, and I was like going out just to get it out of my system. I was going out too much and I knew that, and I have more to live for than that. I don't want to be written about at these clubs with these people. I work, I act, I have a living. That's what I do every day. I work every single day." - Lindsay Lohan Monday night

The Hilton Sisters Being...Well...The Hilton Sisters

In a somewhat typical display of Paris and Nikki slutty-ness, the Hilton sisters show up to a party at the Playboy mansion in little more than a black slip and an animal-print leotard. Considering the location, I suppose this is to be expected...but the overly acted displays of sisterly love seem to be crossing over the line of near incest...YUCK.

This kid has Angie's lips and Brad's eyes. So basically, she hit the gene jackpot.

Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie weren't satisfied with having a famously diverse family. Oh, no. They had to go and procreate themselves, producing what is possibly the cutest baby ever born.
Wow, we didn't see THAT one coming. Let's be honest - the kid kind of had an advantage.
Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, just seven months old, along with her brother Maddox and sister Zahara, joined their celeb-humanitarian parents for a photo shoot in Cambodia recently, and Perez posted them this morning. The result? A crazy-adorable family portrait.
Can't help but love 'em.

A new trailer for the upcoming computer animated TMNT movie was just released. This CGI reboot of the franchise premieres in theaters March 23, 2007...so check out the fancy new trailer below!

Posted by Nathan

Not even WE could make this up...

In the continuing saga that is Britney Spears' post-marital life, a new chapter has begun.
This dude - music producer JR Rotem - is the new future ex-Mr. Britney.
That is, they're kinda hooking up these days.
Spears and Rotem were seen at an LA eatery this last weekend, some time after un-confirmed rumors sizzled that the two were an item. I guess now it's official!
And here's the best part - Rotem has worked with some biggest names in crappy music - including Paris Hilton and....drumroll.....Kevin Federline!

I feel really bad about liking this...but I do....almost as much as I like new new Hollywood DUI club!

Nicole busted for DUI!

Nice muggers....

When: 4:30am this morning
Why: Vicodin and pot

Nicole Richie was caught driving the wrong way on the 134 Freeway in Burbank this morning. Why are we not surprised? She plead guilty to heroine possession in 2003. As law enforcement reported, drugged out 5'1" Nicole weighed in at only 85 lbs. Yeah yeah yea she still has an eating disorder. Perhaps she should replace the drugs with food? She was released this morning at about 7:15 on $15,000 bail. Good start to a day, huh?

Trailer Mash-Up: Brokeback to the Future

Brokeback Mountain spoofs are a little dated now, but back when the movie came out, these type of trailers were all over the place. Basically, someone would take the basic love story idea from Brokeback Mountain and place it into the context of another movie by creating a new trailer. Case in point, we get the trailer for Brokeback to the Future. Enjoy!

Trailer Mash-Up: Hamlet is Back!

Yet another trailer that someone made using clips from a variety of different movies. This time around, we get to see Arnold Schwarzenegger taking on the role of William Shakespeare's "Hamlet." Now, I'm not a huge fan of Shakespeare, but I'd definitely go see this!

Get with the program, O...
You aint Suri's Godmama!

She's been snubbed again - or at least that's what's been floating around the rumor mill these days. Sources say future-president Oprah Winfrey was left off of the guest list at Tom Cruise and Katie Holmes' post-wedding bash at Cruise' co-producer Paula Wagner's Hillz mansion. This coming just weeks after Tomkat left O off the list of celebrities invited to their Italian wedding (the list DID include JLo, Marc Anthony, and Jim Carrey).

I know that unlike Tom, I'm not an expert in the celebrity social etiquette or anything, but this is starting to feel like a blow off.

What do you think, O?

New reports say that adoption-crazed Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie are planning on getting married this Christmas...in a South African village outside of Johannesburg!

The traditional marriage ceremony will be attended by only a few guests and, as a source explains: "They are treatingtheir marriage like a spiritual affirmation and don't need big Hollywood glitz like Tom Cruise had in Italy."

It's nice to see that some people in Hollywood are modest.

UPDATE! Brad and Angelina are denying rumors that they are getting married any time soon... Oh, well : (

Trailer Mash-Up: 10 Things I Hate About Commandments

Someone thought it would be pretty darn funny if they mixed "10 Things I Hate About You" and "The Ten Commandments" into one simple trailer...and you know what? They were right! In this spoof trailer, "The Ten Commandments" is turned into a teen movie in which Moses, the new kid at school, has to face off against the most popular kid around...Ramses! Check it out below!

From Club Hopping to Pill Popping?

As reported by Perez Hilton, apparently Brit has developed a bit of a pill-popping habit. According to an eyewitness who saw the mommy in the bathroom of Hollywood restaurant Dan Tana's: "It looked like a pharmacy in there (her bag) - I have never seen so many pills" from Paxil to Xanax. Maybe she's taken her newfound freedom a tad to far this time...

Apparently the newly-single father of four by two different baby-momas likes getting his a** handed to him. He just posted on his website that he'll be making a second appearance on WWE January 1, this time pitted up against John Cena.
Oh snap!
I guess now that his album and his marraige are such failures, he can always go back to back-up dancing.
(that is, assuming Cena lets him keep the functionability of his limbs).

Apparently Mel Gibson just had to have a piece of that Aztec action in his latest movie. Check out this single frame from the "Apocalypto" trailer:

Lindsay the Liar?

Were Lindsay and Al BFF's at the GQ event? Apparently, not so much. In response to comments by Lindsay Lohan claiming that Al Gore had offered to come to her aid, Gore's rep responded: "I can confirm for you that Mr. Gore has only met Ms. Lohan once, very briefly, at the GQ Men of the Year dinner last week. There were hundreds of other guests."

(P.S.: Slate claims to have a copy of Lohan's original e-mail re: Gorey Boy.)

Posted by Laura

(It's Lindsay against the world...)

Lindsay Lohan sent out another one of her random rambling e-mails today, and everytime she does she reminds us of her feeble grasp of the English language. In further response to the horrors wrought by the paparazzi, Lohan had this to say:

"Al Gore will help me. He came up to me last night and said he would be very happy to have a conversation with me. If he is willing to help me, let's find out. Hilary Clinton, Bill Clinton, and Evan Metroplis, and John Daur who works with them would be willing, if we just ask. If we just ASK."


Apparently she's looking to reform the way the tabloids work. Her goal is to "release a politically/morally correct, fully adequite letter to the press." Good luck, firecrotch!

Still, I guess I can sympathize with this:

It's my life. I want to live it. People cannot lie and think that it is okay to continue on having done so. I have had many ups and downs, as do we all. But to make false accusations to one girl is unjust in my opinion. I am willing to do anything I need to get my life the way it should be."

Ooo La La! Madonna to Create H&M Line!

This just in: Madonna and Swedish fashion giant H&M have just announced the material girl's "M by Madonna" fashion and accessories line to hit stores March 2007. In her own words: "I made no secret of my love for fashion over the years. Working with...H&M was an exciting and new creative challenge for me. I'm really happy with the results and look forward to wearing 'M by Madonna' along with the rest of the world."

I LOVE H&M! I hope Madonna's line will be as awesome as Stella McCartney's!

Recut Trailer: Office Space (Thriller Version)

Alright, so posting the recut "Mary Poppins" trailer made me look for a few more of these fake trailers. I've already mentioned the family friendly "The Shining" trailer that's on You Tube, so I won't bother posting that. However, one of the best recut trailers I've managed to find online is a recut version of "Office Space," in which the character Milton begins stalking and attacking his co-workers. Though there are a lot of really rotten recut trailers out there, every once in awhile you'll find a hidden gem like this one. So keep on the lookout!

Recut Trailer: Mary Poppins (Horror Version)

This has seemingly become a recent trend in the online community. Taking clips from older movies and recutting them to make them appear as completely different movies. This time around, clips from Disney's classic "Mary Poppins" are recut to create the movie trailer for "Scary Mary," a horror version of the classic in which the nanny is actually a demented killer. If you enjoy these kinda of recut trailers, then I suggest looking up one of the classics on You Tube, which is a recut version of "The Shining" that makes it look like a family film. There's a lot of these things out there, so keep your eyes open. Anyway...here's the trailer for "Scary Mary!"

Short Film: Disease Island

If you've ever seen Myspace: The Movie, then you've already seen something by amateur film director David Lehre. I saw this video way back before Myspace: The Movie was even a hit, and I honestly think its much funnier. I randomly remembered the video for some reason, so I decided I would just post it here for you guys to check out. If you're a fan of the TV show "Survivor," then you're sure to get a kick out of it. If not, just try not to be offended by it. If you wanna check out any more of Lehre's work, go to his website at http://www.davidlehre.com.

Leonardo DiCaprio's new movie "Blood Diamond" may hurt Africa's legitimate diamond industry, State department officials worry.
The film opens Friday, and deals with the illegal diamond trade industry in the Sierra Leon region of Africa in the 1990's. Officials fear that the negative publicity will dissuade people from trusting that the diamonds they purchase are not "blood diamonds," or obtained illegally. Since the time the film depicts, measures have been taken to combat the illegal industry, and now it is much less of an issue, "significantly less than 1%" of all diamonds moving in and out of the region, says Deputy Assistant Secretary of State Paul Simons.
Still, that's a lot of freakin' diamonds, and a lot more money. Good luck, Sierra Leon.

Jennifer Aniston and Vince Vaughn - SPLIT!

Everyone loves Jennifer Anniston, I guess. So this brings a tear to our eye. The couple have been on and off for the last few months, spending very little time in each others' company. Jen even had her publicist lie to people magazine last week and say they were together. Anyway, they aren't.


Ok, over it.

Oh, Jess..."wardrobe malfunction" is taken, sweetie!

Jessica Simpson performed at the Kennedy Center Honors ceremony Sunday night, and in performing her tribute to country music legend Dolly Parton, singing the song "9 to 5." But to the suprise of many, she basically sucked a**. She kept flubbing the lyrics and clutching her chest, looking obviously upset. Once flustered through song, ending it with "Dolly, you make me so nervous!" and then crying on Reese Witherspoon's shoulder. Today her reps say that it was a bad dress that was distracting her. Yeah, yeah...ok. (everyone gets a little nervous sometimes, Jess...)
Viewers won't see the crapfest when the special airs December 26, per Simpson's request for a re-shoot after the show.
That's what we have YouTube for!

Here we have Wayans brother Damon with a ridiculous over-sized pink leather hat. What was he thinking? End of story.

And here we have Ashlee Simpson's UGG creation for the "Walk of Art" charity auction. Listen: Ashlee, those UGGs look like they were attacked by a mad pack of pre-schoolers! Maybe you need some charity: ART LESSONS! (Perhaps from Danni Minogue, whose UGGs are MUCH more pleasing to the eye...)

Because not everyone can be as hot as Paris when
they get their DWI....

In the spirit of recent celebrity crime sprees, actor Rip Torn (most recently known for his roles in Men in Black and Dodgeball) was arrested this week after crashing his car in North Salem, New York. This isn't Torn's first brush with the law (a similar charge was filed against him in 2004), but considering his age, a ripe 75 (yes, that's SEVENTY-FIVE), it is quite remarkable indeed.

Pure genius! (Kudos to VH1)

I've been blogging a lot about Paris Hilton lately and sometimes I just can't understand what she was thinking! And I'm sure you too have wanted to find out JUST what is going on in that (small?) mind of Paris Hilton. Well, for the first time ever, you really can-- candid and uncensored!

Get inside Paris (no, not like that).

Posted by Laura

I'm probably the first one to say I feel bad for Paris... but come on!
Can't a girl get locked out in peace?

Check it out: Paris gets locked out!

And P.S.: When did they break up?
That must be pretty awkward as they still play a couple on the show, no? (But I guess they won't have to put up with that much longer, as The O.C. is doomed to be canceled eventually without THE MAIN CHARACTER THAT EVERYONE LOVES TO LOVE AND LOVES TO HATE, Mischa.)
