Anyone surprised that Britney‘s latest accessory and closest confidante, Osama “Sam” Lufti, has a checkered past? UsWeekly revealed that Lufti, who most recently organized Brit’s 26th birthday shindig in Los Angeles, has two restraining orders against him, as well as a questionable resume when it comes to his “film producer” claims.
In 2005, a woman named Jumana Issa obtained a restraining order after Lufti harassed her with “obscene e-mails, offensive faxes, telephone voice mails, out-of-control behavior and outrageous telephone hang-ups.” The second restraining order was obtained by a former neighbor of Lufti’s, who stated that Lufti threated his mother’s life.
As for his film production career, Lufti’s accomplishments aren’t as
illustrious as he’s let on. Most recently, he was the assistant to the producer and director of 1998′s Bug Buster, which starred Randy Quaid and should give you some sense of this guy’s place on the Hollywood food chain.

“You can tell I have no shame. I could tell the whole world that I’m delivering pizza and I could care less if people make fun of me,” says the Entertainer in our interview with him. So open fire, y’all! See if he cares!
After the jump, the Entertainer talks about his burgeoning interest in women’s feet, starting the Pretty gay-panic and his awesome, awesome mother.
We were all excited to enjoy this video of 50 Cent allegedly caught snorting a big ol’ pile of coke on Croatian television. But after giving it a watch, all we learned was that Croatian newscasters look like old anthropology professors and can’t afford wireless mics. Is 50 Cent snorting coke in the video? Maybe. It’s kinda hard to even tell because he appears to be in a blue jacket at first, but then appears in a white t-shirt to talk to Professor Crazy Hair (some bloggers say he took off the coat prior to chatting). And really, couldn’t he also be praying, playing cards, looking at a magazine, dissecting a frog or checking out a treasure map? Hellz yes. His rep also released a statement which said:
“These are the facts:
50 Cent does NOT drink alcohol.
50 Cent does NOT smoke.
50 Cent does NOT do drugs.”
Take a look and make up an answer that you like, because he really could be doing anything. Personally, I think he’s looking at a picture of Britney Spears’ pores through a tiny microscope. Cuz not every celebrity has to have a penchant for drug-induced nosebleeds. [Bossip]

Superbad – Extended Cut
With Superbad, Seth Rogen came into his own to claim the crown as this year’s comedy kingpin. He and frequent partner Evan Goldberg wrote the script in hopes of capturing the quintessential high school movie, in which three loser teens try to score alcohol to impress some girls at a party. Of course, things go south quickly. One of their clique, Fogell, whose fake ID claims Hawaiian heritage and the single-name moniker “McLovin’,” is accosted in a stick-up at the local store. The responding cops (Rogen and Saturday Night Live‘s Bill Hader) take him under their drunk-driving-wing, while the others are forced to steal beer from the violent host of another party. All ends in disaster for the boys, but not for the audiences, who are treated to verbal pyrotechnics worthy of Richard Pryor. Michael Hill, Michael Cera, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Rogen and Hader share an easy camaraderie, and have unparalleled ad-libbing skills. A literate and incredibly funny, if also X-rated, display.
The O.C. – The Complete Series Collection
Chrismukkuh is here, so it’s a good time for people of all faiths to absorb the antics that impressed the TV nation back when Josh Schwartz‘s SoCal soap made its initial dent. Every generation needs its Dallas (seen Dirty, Sexy, Money?), and the gorgeous young people of Newport Beach wove in and out of each others lives (and beds) on a regular basis. The 92 episodes on these 28 discs contain all the haughtiness, conniving, and angst that an uppercrust bedroom community can muster. But there was always something mildly romantic about the turns taken by Seth Cohen and his pals. The polar opposite of Judd Apatow’s Freaks & Geeks crowd, they wrung their very privileged hands over innumerable decisions (stay or go, stay or go?), flaunted their LaCoste sophistication, and reflected all the teenage worries that their viewers though t they too, were experiencing themselves. Why do you think all that hyper poignant pop music made it to the soundtrack each week? Long live melodrama. Long live Marissa.
This mega box is the bomb, an O.C. universe loaded with outtakes, bloopers, widescreen shows, beach couture featurettes, and star commentary. Some zealots find an embarrassment of riches the only option. California here we come!
