The cast of Gossip Girl – as well as a bunch of other hot, young stars whose 15 minutes are just beginning – is featured in the latest issue of Vanity Fair, and the pic of the pretty cast looks awfully familiar. We seem to remember another attractive bunch of sexed up pals who were also caught walking around barefoot in glamorous gowns while lugging around champagne. Anyone?
The Gossip gang was also interviewed about such pressing issues as “Jimmy Choo or Christian Louboutin?” Our fave answer comes from Leighton Meester, who was just SO adorable when asked, “Blackberry or iPhone?” Her answer:
“Why do you assume I don’t have a Nokia pay-and-go phone? No, I have a BlackBerry.”
Rapper DMX was arrested – again – this weekend trying to purchase some coke n’ weed from an undercover police officer. After asking the cop for “30 Powder & 15 Weed,” the Ruff Ryder handed over $45 and was immediately arrested. This is the fourth – yes, FOURTH – time DMX has been arrested since May 7th, when he was popped for reckless driving, among other charges. On May 9th he was nailed for animal cruelty and drug possession, and just last week on June 23 he was popped driving without a driver’s license.
Does this guy have any friends to look out for him (besides his abused dogs)? Can’t the Lohans and the Spears clans rally round this guy and haul him off to rehab, starlet style? [TMZ]
What a great weekend for Wino wackiness. Amy performed at both Nelson Mandela’s 90th birthday celebration and the UK’s Glastonbury festival, and thankfully she was up to her regular insanity! During her Glastonbury set Amy got physical with a fan in the audience, flailing wildly and whacking the guy before a few beefy security dudes stepped in. (Check out the clip above.) Unfazed, Amy then improvised some lines in her song “Some Unholy War” about Blake Incarcerated, adding in “I’m not opening for a c*nt like Kanye.”
Kanye then took to his broken MacBook Air – of course – to tell the world that he doesn’t give a sh*t what Amy Winehouse thinks of him. Do these two thrive off of the drama or what? If Blake gets locked up for good they should seriously think about getting together. It’d be the hottest mess ever!
Mimi better watch who she’s bossing around! Apparently pals (she has friends?!) close to the singing star are placing bets on how long her marriage to Nick Cannon will last, and they’re guessing “six months, tops.” The reason? Nick is stuck doting on his bride 24/7, and allegedly spends more time lugging her shopping bags around than he does cuddling with his older love. A source spills that,
“Mariah’s assistants and friends call him ‘Whipped Nick’ behind his back. They have little respect for him because he won’t stand up for himself.”
Well if he won’t, we will! Mariah, leave your man alone! Otherwise he’ll be leaving you – and fast. [MSNBC]
Come on, admit it – you’ll watch it too! Verne Troyer and his ex-girlfriend did it on film, and the tape has somehow leaked. It’s now possibly going to be bought by the same dude who handled the masterpiece One Night in Paris (Hilton). The cost? $100,000. Not bad – but it sucks our man Verne won’t be seeing any of that cash! Check out a very short clip of the film here – our favorite touch is the acting book on the floor behind the couple. Let’s hope they use it as a sex toy! [TMZ]
We love Mary-Kate Olsen, and by now we get her outfit choices. The weirdest, baggiest, most unflattering piece will always find its way onto her tiny frame, mixed with a braided hairdo and a freaked out facial expression. So it was no surprise to see her at The Wackness premiere in this giant white mess, some sort of couture cross between a sheet and a toga. Oddly enough, when belted, it ended up looking exactly like that crappy cloak Pricess Leia wears in the Star Wars flicks! All she needs is a light saber, giant buns and Harrison Ford on her arm, and she’d be the complete package.
M-K of course turned up at the film’s after party in an adorable little floral number. Why does she taunt us so?
Our favorite almost-divorced couple is finally working out the kinks of their divorce settlement, and Kimora Lee Simmons is walking away with a phat wad of ex-hubby Russell‘s cash. Well, not Kimora exactly – their kids. Yep, each girl – Ming Lee, 8, and Aoki, 5 – will get $20,000 a month from their dad until they turn 18. That adds up to $480,000 a year for each kid – who already spend their lives living large in a $24 million mansion in New Jersey.
In case you forgot, the still amicable pair divorced after nine years of marriage. Kimora is now dating super-hot actor Djimon Hounsou, while Russ keeps busy doing yoga with model Porschla Coleman. [NYDN]
BritBrit had a major meltdown in sister Jamie-Lynn‘s delivery room last week, while her sis was trying to push out her daughter. J-L was determined to have a natural birth, but when doctors discovered that the baby’s umbilical cord was too short, they began pushing for a C-section. But Jamie-Lynn, being the stubborn Spears that she is, insisted on pushing that sucker out vaginally. Guess who didn’t like that idea! Britney of course, who screamed, “Just have a damn Caesarian,” before storming out the delivery room in tears. Yes, even as her sister gives birth, it’s all about her. [Star]
Brit continued her quest for a hot bod and hit up the gym on Tuesday, perhaps to blow off some steam. If she wants to lose weight, she should just cut off that monster on top of her head. That ponytail probably clocks in at 20 pounds!
Last night’s BET Awards show was a kick-ass house party, a fashion show, and a hip-hop reunion all in one! Keyshia Cole and Rihanna looked fierce in yellow, and even Little Mama‘s bizarre kiddie dress was totally precious. Also, En Vogue! T-Boz and Chilli! Swoon. The night was one big exclamation point!!! Pics below.
