Maroon 5 Deliver a Wake Up Call

by

What do a hostages, high-speed chases and jail have in common? True, they’re all components of a Monday evening with Lindsay Lohan, but they also all have something to do with the video for Maroon 5‘s video for their latest single “Wake Up Call,” directed by Jonas Akerlund (Smashing Pumpkins, U2). We’re not quite sure what’s going on in these clips the band sent over – it’s pretty much live action Grand Theft Auto. Our verdict? We’re not sure, but Adam Levine‘s much too pretty for jail.

Check out the clips and tell us what’s going on.

Come back on August 1st for the online premiere of the video.

I Know Who Killed Me: Insider Info

by

killme.jpg

Lindsay Lohan‘s I Know Who Killed Me wasn’t screened for critics, which, given the events of the past week, was probably someone’s attempt to stop the deluge of bad press with a earplug. It was, however, screened for the film’s cast and crew. An insider told Defamerhow the (supposedly sympathetic) audience reacted, and it wasn’t pretty. To wit:

“In the scene where Lindsay gets hit in the face with a shovel– a scene meant to be terrifying–the audience erupted into laughter. Another not-funny-but-funny moment: when Lilo’s stripper character who may or may not be suffering from a split personality is being questioned by cops, she refers to her mother as ‘a crackwhore, disgusting, pathetic’ . . . ouch Dina! The line was received by riotous laughter.”

Sad, sad, sad. This is not going to end well, folks.

Nicole Will Spend 4 Days in Jail

by

nicole.jpgPoor Nicole – always copying her pal Paris. First it was the bone-thin look, then the hair, now she’s pulling the “sneak off to jail when everyone leasts expect it.” The tiny starlet has headed off to court this morning (watch video of her arrival here) with a dapper looking Joel Madden attached at her side. Nicole is apparently going to plead either guilty or no contest to her DUI charge, and will then receive a minimum of five days in jail. Might as well get it out of the way before that baby really starts kickin’.

On a superficial note, Nicole looks totally bangin’ on her last day of freedom. Cute dress, nice big shades, and a hairdo worthy of a wedding. Kudos, my petite friend! A proper lady always go down in style. And her own pants. For more of Nicole in cute clothes, check out this behind the scenes video from Nylon of her photo-shoot for the mag’s cover.

UPDATE: Nicole was sentenced to four days in county jail, which she must begin serving by September 28th. She was also fined $2048, is on probation for 3 years, and must attend a 21 day alcohol education course. [TMZ. Booking Photo]

Lindsay’s Car Chase Companions Tell All

by

lindsayceleb072707.jpgTMZ has a four-piece video interview with the three men who were supposedly in the white Denali that Lindsay Lohan drove recklessly through Santa Monica prior to her DUI arrest. It’s a lot of information to weed through, but compelling as hell nonetheless. These guys allege, among many things, that Lindsay was drinking cocktails and doing shots, drove (stole?) a car belonging to one of the men, ran over one guy’s foot, zoomed down the highway doing 100 miles an hour, drove in circles around the second car on the highway, and at one point yelled, “I can’t get in trouble. I’m a celebrity. I can do whatever the f**k I want.”

Right, Linds. Right. There’s no way to tell if these guys are exaggerating at all – the guy’s bandage on his foot looks a tad homemade, for example – but still their tale is totally enthralling. Especially the part where Lindsay, when confronted by the police, supposedly tries to blame her reckless driving on “the black kid.” Her words. Ugh.

Oh No They Didn’t: Friday’s Reviews Rage

by

noreservations.jpgEvery week we round up selections from the funniest, most obscene and brutal film criticism out there so that you don’t waste your cash at the theaters and laugh a little at Hollywood’s expense. This week: I Know Who Killed Me isn’t going to murder Lindsay Lohan’s career (if she can’t, no one can) but it comes close. But since critics weren’t even allowed to see the movie, we’re going to discuss No Reservations, the bland Catherine Zeta-Jones romantic comedy about a New York City chef who discovers the ingredient her life is missing — love.

“Among the movie’s chief flaws is that Zeta-Jones is entirely unconvincing as a chef, an American and a human being. Whether she’s storming out of the kitchen to attack customers who send back her food, regaling her exposition-enabling but otherwise pointless therapist (Bob Balaban) with disquisitions on food preparation and elaborately prepared meals, or serving her young niece a nice dinner of roasted fish with the head still attached, she seems awkward, Welsh and robotic.” — The Los Angeles Times

“There’s already a crazy behind-the-scenes restaurant movie out this summer, and it’s got a better story, and it’s a cartoon, and it stars a rat.” — The Washington Post

I Hate My Fridays (I Hate My 30s Recap)

by

I Hate My 30’s
I Hate My 30s
is VH1′s new comedy show about office workers who are staring down the long barrel of 30 and looking at death — not to mention spinsterhood, debt and bitter, crushing loneliness. As mercurial host Dr. Rod says of the show, “It demonstrates that, while life does indeed suck balls, at least it only gets worse.”

Grim as 30 can be, it can also be funny. The first episode, which premiered last night, was all about Carol‘s birthday party. She’s a lovely, driven single girl who’s worried that her eggs are going to dry up and blow away. Her work life is being made complicated by Chad, a co-worker who has a crippling crush on her (and gives her an extremely inappropriate birthday present). We thought it would be good to check in with the two of them before the inevitable inter-office romance begins and destroys their lives. Interviews after the jump: Read more…
