- Shay of Charm School and Flavor of Love wants to make sure you know her correct MySpace page. She doesn’t want all that webcam spam going to the wrong person, you know? [Crunk + Disorderly]

- Pete Wentz says that girls don’t need makeup to be hot. Judging by his eyeliner, guys are a different story entirely. [Jezebel]

- Stephen Baldwin speaks out against gay marriage. But see, it isn’t a choice…nor is being a Baldwin, for that matter. [Dlisted]

- The new American Gladiators is a huge hit. You know what they say: you can never have too many spandexed penises on network television. Take that, Baldwin! [Best Week Ever]

Two Old Geezers Review Superbad


This clip of two established – but old – Hollywood insiders, Marcia and Lorenzo, reviewing Superbad is a few months old, but we’ve just discovered it. Needless to say, we’re kind of obsessed with them now. The pair, who go by the name Reel Geezers, review flicks on their YouTube site. Listening to them tear apart this summer’s coming-of-age hit as “foul beyond description” and “vile” is just amazing. They also get a good bash in at The Catcher in the Rye too. How anti-establishment! In honor of last night’s Critics Choice Awards – at which Superbad was nominated for Best Comedy Movie – we bring you the Reel Geezers review (warning: the language, though said by old peeps, is NSFW). Lorenzo and Marcia give it “one penis up and one penis down.” What do you think?

Rock In the Movies: 2007



You’ve got Dewey Cox tripping through all the rock ‘n’ roll eras, from the Elvis and Buddy Holly days to the Beatles and the Maharishi daze. You got Joy Division‘s Ian Curtis making some of the most gorgeous gloom ever concocted before offing himself. And you’ve got 18-20 versions of Bob Dylan bouncing around in Todd HaynesI’m Not There. All sorts of music took over the screens last year. Romp through our flipbook and see if there’s a story you missed.

Eminem’s Hospital Scare


eminem.jpgSlim Shady is now Sick Shady – the rapper landed himself in the hospital over Christmas with a serious case of pneumonia and a heart condition. Sources on the inside also report that Em’s weight has ballooned to over 200 pounds. His rep recently gave the official word: “Over the holidays, Marshall Mathers, aka Eminem, was under doctor’s care at a Detroit-area hospital for complications due to pneumonia. He has since been released and is doing well recovering at home.”

We’re glad to hear he’s healing and kinda hope maybe he’s got enough material to inspire an album. Eminem’s been in hiding for the past year or so, and told Hot 97 in September that his projects were “in limbo.” Let’s hope for a speedy recovery of both his health and his career. [MTV News.]

Divorce Countdown: Kate Heigl & That Dude



Katherine Heigl is so pretty and perfect and all that sweet stuff. She just got married to that kind of good-looking rocker dude and is now gushing about how pumped she is to have babies. But you know who doesn’t look so psyched? Her new husband. He looks like he’d rather be crammed into a hammock somewhere, strumming his guitar and guzzling a Corona as a couple of hot chicks swoon over his dark and stormy (and mascara-enhanced?) eyes. Katherine’s brought home an Emmy, snagged a raise on her hit show Grey’s Anatomy, and scored a hit movie (last summer’s Knocked Up) and now a serious chick flick in the past year. Her asking price per film has grown from $300,000 to a nice n’ easy $6 million! And you know she’s just waiting to get all ugly for some role and win an Oscar a la Charlize Theron – and score some sweet endorsement deals during her free time. All which leads us to believe that this cute couple isn’t gonna have time for baby-making, because they’ll be to busy breaking up after her star becomes too bright. Don’t believe me? Just ask Reese Witherspoon and Hilary Swank.

Critics’ Choice Awards Behind the Scenes



If you’re going to stand on a red carpet, you’d best bring a stool. At the Critics’ Choice Awards last night in Los Angeles, the entryway was packed with news agencies and paparazzi – everyone from the networks and domestic entertainment press to foreign reporters, like those from Canal Plus. (On the northern side of cultural reportage, Ben Mulroney, the host of Canadian Idol and the son of a former prime minister, cut the most impressive figure.) Everyone was jostling for position, and when the celebrities came down the carpet, it was difficult to see, much less talk, for fear of all the flying elbows and tossed camera equipment. When Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie arrived, the flashbulbs looked like a lightning storm, to borrow a phrase from intrepid VH1 host Aamer Haleem. One grizzled red carpet vet hunched over his microphone and said grimly, “This is paradise.” But for many, it was.

Jessica Alba Is A Total Hypocrite


Jessica Alba graced the cover of Elle Magazine this month, and she’s got quite a bit to say about her fame and how she’s perceived — in short, she doesn’t use her body to further her career. While we appreciate the former Maxim cover girl’s views, we only wish they were true. Check out what she had to say below, along with some of her…uh, work.

Britney Wears a Bra & Stays Home



We spend a good 95% of our day thinking, reading, and yapping about Britney Spears. And every day it’s the same old crap (like last night: her car broke down, she hitched a ride with paparazzi, Brit rocked an almost nip-slip, slept at the Peninsula Hotel and looked generally trashy and insane) . Life with Britney is like that movie Groundhog Day, except her sh*t stopped being funny a long time ago and we still laugh at Bill Murray. So here is what we wish we could write – a day in the life of Britney that we could only dream of. Maybe someday even just a minute of it will come true.

Britney rises early and heads out for a jog wearing a supportive sports-bra, a tank top that covers her stomach, actual shorts and sneakers. Her short, natural hair is pulled back in a headband.
9AM: On the way home for her run, Brit stops by a local coffee shop for a small cup of green tea.
10AM: Britney takes a long, hot shower, washes her hair, scraps off her fake tan and scrubs her finger nails.
11AM: The starlet chews some Nicorette while cleaning out her entire closet, and donates her collection of skanky shirts, butt-revealing dresses and beat-up boots to charity.
12PM: Britney’s kids come over for a visit and she makes then a healthy meal, plays with them in the yard, and puts them down for a nap.
4PM: Mama Brit drives (below the speed limit) her reasonably-priced hybrid vehicle to the farmer’s market and picks up some vegetables and fish for dinner.
6PM: The family gathers for a meal made of actual food, followed by a G-rated movie together.
8PM: Britney goes to bed. Alone.
