It isn't even all that good. Banksy he isn't.

It isn't even all that good. Banksy he isn't.

An Australian hotel is being told to clean up graffiti sprayed onto its walls by one public enemy Justin Bieber, despite the fact that they want to display it prominently as artwork. Defacing public property just isn't the crime it used to be.

QT Hotel in the Gold Coast is being told by mayor Tom Tate to remove the neon faces, even though the hotel said they were okay with it, the AP reports. The hotel's Facebook page even showed a photo of the paint on Thursday captioned, "He asked, and we said YES." The hotel is going so far as to invite other taggers to paint on its walls, to promote graffiti as an art form.Full Story

Sorry, Angelina Jolie didn't pay $20 million for a Brad Pitt birthday island

The helipad is on the roof, which is where any proper helipad is placed.

The helipad is on the roof, which is where any proper helipad is placed.

A report by the U.K.'s Mirror that Angelina Jolie paid $20 million for a heart-shaped island for Brad Pitt's birthday has the unfortunate problem of not being at all true. But then where did the gossip media get all these unattributed quotes from?

“As soon as Angelina heard the island was on the market she arranged a viewing. She was really impressed," a source said, gushing on and on about how Pitt loved Frank Lloyd Wright's architecture, so the Wright-designed house on the island was ideal. “The house is perfect for romantic getaways or as a family retreat. It’s very private. And Angelina knows the fact the island is in the shape of a heart will mean so much to him.”Full Story

Sounds like Mario is the only one who liked them.

Every celebrity chef has something they're known for: Rachael Ray and her E.V.O.O. Masaharu Morimoto and his Iron Chef resume. Giada De Laurentiis almost slicing the tip of her finger off on live TV. And Mario Batali and his orange Crocs. But not for much longer.

Details magazine asked the 53-year-old restaurateur how many pairs of the affronts to tasteful fashion he owned, and he answered, "Probably 30. I just ordered 200 more because they're about to take orange out of the field. They made a special run for me before they retired the color."Full Story

Never mind, Tom Cruise is not dating Laura Prepon after all

That's Prepon at right, hanging with Jenna Elfman, John Travolta and Kelly Preston at the Celebrity Center in L.A. back in August. So she does know the Travolta, you see.

All those stories about Tom Cruise dating Laura Prepon are just a rumor that spread at the speed of Internet, Us Weekly says. It looks like we were right to hedge our bets on that one being true in the first place.

When last we met, we shared a story from British magazine Grazie, claiming Cruise and the former Orange Is the New Black star were a thing. Not so, an anonymous source tells Us -- that dinner at the Manor Hotel in L.A. was just a couple fellow Scientologists having a meal.Full Story

Of course there are rumors they're getting married. At least the Scientology thing wouldn't be a problem.

Of course there are rumors they're getting married. At least the Scientology thing wouldn't be a problem.

We don't know how reliable the source material here is, but the Europress is saying Tom Cruise is finding a lot of free time to spend with former Orange is The New Black star Laura Prepon. That's much more constructive than, say, spending that time with his daughter Suri.

Brit magazine Grazie (via the Irish Independent) is saying the couple had dinner at the Manor Hotel in L.A., which sounds kinda ritzy. But wait til you hear the lengths he went to in order to impress her.Full Story

You can practically hear Chris ask attorney Mark Geragos if he'll be allowed to keep his Mary Jane.

Chris Brown is busy cooling his heels in court-ordered rehab for his anger management problem, but he's already had at least one confrontation with the staff. It seems the facility didn't want him to keep all his marijuana. The nerve of some people!

TMZ says Breezy reported for his 90-day stint and readily gave up his phone and Internet, but balked when it came to his weed. He told the staff it was prescription nickel for depression and that he needed it to stay calm. The staff wasn't buying it, and told him to hand it over.Full Story

It's been a long time coming, but Jennifer Love Hewitt got both a baby and a husband when we weren't looking. That should make up for The Client List being cancelled by Lifetime.

We can't even bear to make any jokes about their age difference anymore. Let's just move on.

This is all just signing paperwork at this point, but if you must know, Ashton Kutcher and Demi Moore are officially divorced. It happened just in time for Thanksgiving, too, so you know Ashton had a lot to say during grace.

After marrying in 2005 and separating in 2011 -- following Kutcher's philandering on their anniversary -- Ashton's lawyer Laura Wasser filed final divorce papers on Tuesday, TMZ reports. The former couple took a year fighting over spousal support and dividing their stuff, but have worked all that out. He eventually ended up giving her some cash, despite the fact she's worth more than he is.Full Story

No alcohol or drugs, just having the cops called on him when he argues with Elycia.

Former Malcolm in the Middle star Frankie Muniz will spend Thanksgiving recovering from another mini-stroke. The 27-year-old revealed the news on Monday via Twitter.

While Americans got Christina Aguilera and Cee-Lo Green back on The Voice, the Australian version has announced they'll be getting Kylie Minogue and will.i.am in 2014. That explains all those will.i.am rumors here last season.

Those two are leaving the U.K. show to fly across the world to join Ricky Martin and Joel Madden, News.com.au reports. Former judge Delta Goodrem is going to be a judge on The Voice Kids, for children between the ages of 8 and 14.

Kids change a lot. Like your happy marriage, for instance. Maybe they can still work it out.

After being married for six years, Trophy Wife actress Malin Akerman and her husband Roberto Zincone have separated. She must have woken up one day and realized, "Wait, I'm Malin Akerman!"

"It's as amicable as can be, and they want to do what's best for their son," a source told Us Weekly. The couple's son, Sebastian, is 7 months old. A second source says the 35-year-old Akerman and the Pedalstones drummer aren't in a hurry to divorce. "No one has plans to file yet. Honestly, Malin is not even ready to discuss it. It's a very sad time for her."Full Story

About $100,000 worth of stuff taken from Miley Cyrus' house

These must have been the only clothes she had left.

These must have been the only clothes she had left.

The unnamed source that told TMZ over the weekend that lots of Miley Cyrus' things were stolen when her house was burglarized wasn't playing around -- initial reports say about $100,000 worth of property went missing. Maybe she wasn't fake crying at the American Music Awards after all.

The site says a lot of jewelry and purses were taken during the break in, which didn't involved any kind of forced entry. Cyrus wasn't home at the time, and neither were any security personnel, from the sounds of it. She does have a surveillance system, so the cops may have footage to ID a suspect.Full Story

'Family Guy' producer explains why they killed who they killed

Who was it? We left it out of the headline on purpose, you know. Remember when everyone had to watch a show when it was on, with no promise of the show ever being broadcast again? Boy, spoilers weren't much of a problem then. You either saw it or you didn't.

Who was it? We left it out of the headline on purpose, you know. Remember when everyone had to watch a show when it was on, with no promise of the show ever being broadcast again? Boy, spoilers weren't much of a problem then. You either saw it or you didn't.

In deference to all the whiners who complain when they read spoilers because they were too busy wrapping Thanksmas gifts for starving orphans and haven't yet emptied their DVRs, we'll give you one entire sentence to stop reading before we get into this. Are they gone? Good. Now we can talk about how Family Guy decided to kill Brian the dog by hitting him with a car.

Executive producer Steve Callaghan told E! that Sunday's episode, in which Brian took a dirtnap, came up as an idea in the writers room and became popular because of "the way this change will affect the family dynamics and the characters." They picked Brian not because Seth MacFarlane was tired of providing the voice, but because, well, who else would you kill?Full Story

Feldstein and Eastwood wed on Nov. 17 in Las Vegas, their marriage license reads, according to TMZ. They got hitched at a place called the Simple Wedding Chapel, which no doubt offers referrals to good divorce lawyers.Full Story
