Natalie Cole Bashes Winehouse’s Win

The aging diva thinks Amy shouldn’t have won a Grammy (or five) until she’s sober. If the Grammys followed this rule, no one in the biz would ever win anything (um, including Natalie?).

DVD Debut: Gumshoe Hunts For Girl


New DVDs are released every Tuesday, which leads us to the eternal question: What should you buy? Our critic Charles Bottomley weighs in on every week’s must-haves and please-forgets.


Gone Baby Gone
Casey Affleck is the Boston gumshoe hired to find a missing girl in this thoughtful thriller from novelist Dennis Lehane and director Ben Affleck. Lehane also wrote Mystic River, and the Afflecks strain for the same kind of dramatic intensity. The mark is missed, but blue-collar Boston is neatly realized, and the Oscar-nominated Casey has the smoldering intensity of a major star in the making.

Extras: Ben Affleck’s commentary provides insight into the challenges facing a first-time director, while the featurettes turn their attention to an often overlooked aspect of filmmaking — casting.

Rating: Buy!

Grammys: Fashion Flubs


Some of the styles on last night’s red carpet were almost as confusing as Cuba Gooding Jr. introducing Amy Winehouse. Our goal today was to create Best and Worst Dressed lists, but we found ourselves scraping for a single outfit we actually loved. We would have expected Bai Ling to throw us for a loop, but between the ice princess, sherbet delight, and skunk…we can’t figure out what the stars were thinking. Who do you think needs to show their stylist the door?

Pictured above: Beyonce, Aretha Franklin, Fantasia, Bai Ling, Chris Brown, Rihanna, Brooke Hogan, Cyndi Lauper, Jill Scott, Kelis, Miley Cyrus, and Yoko Ono.

Nice To Meet You, Hope To Beat You


It’s not always friction and jealousy at awards shows, sometimes it’s sweetness and light, too. Too bad Feist and Taylor Swift came away empty-handed at the Grammys. Check out their impromptu salutations on the red carpet.

Britney Runs LA’s Biggest Gang


britney-peace-sign.jpgApparently the crew of photographers that bulldoze Britney Spears with their SUVs and cameras is made up of a number of former gang members. Some peeps in the know are accusing some photogs of being Crips and Bloods, while others say that the lensmen just dress the part. “They may dress like gang members with large pants and tattoos,” says X17‘s founder, “but to say they’re gang members right now, well, real gang members are not into Britney Spears.”

But damn it, they should be! It’s time to turn in the red and blue garb and come together peacefully as one big gang – the Brits. The pop star would be the perfect head of a crew – she’s crazy, controlling, and her schedule is free! Britney already puts up a peace sign for every pic (which is also her hand sign for “get me two big-ass Frappucinos, now”), and the group’s mandatory accessory – pink wigs – reps their color. And seeing how Britney already makes the paparazzi millions of dollars, they really have no choice but to make her the Boss of their crew.

Katherine Heigl’s Horrible Hair



Pop Quiz. Katherine Heigl thought this look (seen here at the Madrid premiere of 27 Dresses) was a good idea because:

a) If Jessica Simpson can pull off a fake bob, why can’t she?

b) Bad hair totally goes with giant snake-skin belts.

c) Her style icon is a mom from the suburbs of Texas.

d) She’s f*cking Katherine Heigl and can do whatever the f*ck she wants, b*tches!

Ellen Page Is Going to Hell


ellenpage.jpgHow do you follow up your starring role in 2007′s surprise indie hit? Apparently if you’re Ellen Page, you announce plans to work with Spider-Man director Sam Raimi on a horror film called Drag Me to Hell. The film is about an unsuspecting person dealing with a supernatural curse, or so says IMDB. Raimi’s previous films include Evil Dead, Evil Dead 2 and Army of Darkness (aka Evil Dead 3), so the news, at least on his end, isn’t that extraordinary. No, what’s remarkable here is that Page, the sharp-witted Canadian press darling who brought Juno such widespread acclaim is going to . . . uh, scream for her supper. We hadn’t pegged her as the sort to trade in her credibility that quickly, so either there’s something seriously twisted going on with Raimi’s film, or Page is aiming to make herself into the next Jessica Alba. In the meantime, however, she’s nominated for Best Actress at this year’s Academy Awards. If she takes home the honor, she’ll pretty much be able to write her own ticket, at least temporarily. We wonder if she sees a lot of horror in her future. Weird.

Lindsay Returns to her Redheaded Roots


lindsaylohanbrunette.jpgLast month we begged Lindsay Lohan to dump her burnt blond extensions and return to her natural hair color. We were sick of her overdone, over-cooked do, and her once sexy look had slowly morphed into an homage to trashy housewives of the ’80s (leggings and frosty makeup will do that). So we were thrilled to see that she took our advice and sat down for a serious dye job just last week! Her luxuriously dark locks are back in a bold way, and while she still needs to go easy on the self-tanner and the bronzer brush, her new look is serious improvement.

Welcome back, beautiful auburn-haired LiLo. We missed you almost as much as you miss your Grey Goose.

Chris Cozies Up With His Manager


chrisbrowngrammys.jpgWe are desperate for the day that Chris Brown comes out to the public about his alleged relationship with his much-older manager. We’ve been following this rumored love affair for months, and it seems to be the worst kept secret in the music biz. Chris was spotted sitting right next to his glammed-up lady-friend at the Grammy Awards last night, smiling up a storm. But that school boy look (complete with a back pack?!) doesn’t fool us for a second, you dirty dog. Chris has been linked to Rihanna recently, but we think that’s just a front to hide the real romance that’s going down. After all, you didn’t see him getting close with the pop starlet during the awards ceremony, but maybe he was just embarrassed by her outfit choices. You tell us – which woman do you think Chris is REALLY dating?
