Winehouse Does Rehab and Grammys


amy_winehouseIs she or isn’t she? Today, Amy Winehouse‘s rep confirmed to UsWeekly that Winehouse, despite reports she’s entered rehab, will be performing at this Sunday’s Grammy awards. The singer, nominated in a whopping six categories — including record of the year, album of the year and song of the year — checked into a drug and alcohol rehabilitation facility on January 24th, following the release of shocking footage showing an obviously high Winehouse smoking crack.

To find out more about Winehouse’s sadly ironic song “Rehab,” check out our in-depth analysis on a hit that was created from an off-hand comment and a couple of hours. We’ve also got plenty of interesting info on Winehouse and her competition.

Brangelina Gets Fugly for Baby


brangcloseup.jpgAngelina Jolie‘s latest pregnancy isn’t that far along, but her style has already transitioned from sex pot to that of a seventh grade art teacher circa 1992. There’s nothing more painful than a giant silky black blouse – unless it’s paired with some skirt covered in an obnoxiously bright print. Even Zahara and Shiloh know that! Maternity wear got sexy for a reason, but Angie seems to be avoiding her normally spot-on fashion sense and going for a look my grandmother would love.

Her pending pregnancy, however, is NO excuse for Brad Pitt to dress like an extra on the set of a western movie being shot in 1974. At least Angie’s got something to cover up; though Brad’s new and oddly enormous head of hair could definitely be hiding something. Jennifer Aniston, perhaps?

Fashion Week Frenzy: Girls Go Wild For Erin Fetherston


erinfetherston.jpgIt’s New York Fashion Week, and that means that Manhattan’s hosting all kinds of celebrities, models and designers. To present you with the best of the best, we asked America’s Most Smartest Model host and Harper’s Bazaar contributing fashion editor Mary Alice Stephenson to give her take on all the stylish craziness. In today’s installment, we discuss designer Erin Fetherston, whose line is a favorite of such celebrities as Zooey Deschanel (Elf), Anne Hathaway (The Devil Wears Prada) and, for some reason, Damon Dash (former Jay-Z business associate). The designer’s show was studded with celebrities, high-profile editors and buyers, and the theme had something to do with black roses — beautiful and oddly upsetting at the same time.

Super Bowl 08: Cheaters Never Win!


Everyone loves an upset. Everyone ‘cept those who were trounced, of course. The great drama that was last night’s Super Bowl game ended with a big-ass defense stifling a big-ass offense. Some positioned it as Manning and team vs Brady and team, but maybe it was more Michal Strahan and his wall of terror vs Tom Brady and his invisible tight ends. The Giants front line was raging full-on. At least one wag at the party I attended suggested it was payback for the Belichick video-taping scandal that went down earlier in the season. We’ll let you ponder that, and weigh in below. Why did the Giants win? Why did the Pats lose?

Check out some pics from the big game.

Gramps Wants Brit Outta the “Nut House”



Since Britney’s all locked up, her parents are stuck fighting her in court and her pal Sam Lutfi is busy getting in trouble with the police, the press is desperate to interview someone with a handle on the Spears-sanity. And finally they’ve gone straight to the creator of all the crazy – her grandpa! Yes, the 77-year old June Austin Spears had a lot to say about his f*cked-up family, though it doesn’t seem like he realizes that their mental problems can maybe be traced right back to him. Our favorite June quips are below – do you think he said them in a British accent?

On his bread-winning granddaughter: “I’m worried about her. She shouldn’t go in the nut house. Sometimes you come out worse than you come in.”
- Yeah, kinda like entering the music business at the age of twelve?

Dishing about the way Brit’s mama is handling her littler sister’s pregnancy: “Lynne keeps Jamie Lynn hidden. [Lynne is] in denial about the pregnancy. She thinks it’s just going to go away, but it’s not. It’s going to get bigger and bigger.”
- Finally someone with a literal understanding of what getting knocked up is all about.

Gettin’ sassy about his infamous gun: “I don’t have a gun permit. I keep it under the front seat of my truck.”
- Wow, a Spears who thinks they’re above the law. Where have we seen that before?

When asked if he had previously shot at reporters June replied, “Maybe I have, maybe I haven’t.” Funny how he’d be violent toward reporters one instant and then spill the family beans the next. That behavior sounds so erratic, like he switches between two very different moods. Must be a Southern thing. [NYDN]
