    Blog

    There’s only one place perfect enough for a baby created by Stevie Nicks and Don Henley, and sadly for us mortals, heaven (if you believe in it) is exactly where that unborn child has been all this time.

    Nicks recently opened up about her Fleetwood Mac song Sara, which Eagles frontman Henley claimed was about abortion. Turns out the two were expecting when they dated in the ’70s and they decided they weren’t ready to be parents....

    No, we didn’t just take a trip in the Wayback Machine. Amanda Bynes really did just get arrested for driving under the influence — again.

    The erstwhile Nickelodeon star turned super-hot mess turned squeaky-clean design student has apparently relapsed into hot messiness.

    The former child star, who says she’s retired from acting a la Shia LaBeouf, was pulled over at 4 a.m. Sunday after stopping in the middle of a Los Angeles intersection. The 28-year-old failed a series of field sobriety tests and was evaluated at a police station where she was determined to be under the influence of an unidentified drug....

    Blog

    Just when you thought the Twilight saga was over comes this horrible ugliness courtesy of trolls far and wide.

    Seems the Twihards of the world just can’t let go of their dream Robert Pattinson-Kristen Stewart stunt relationship, so they’re going after R-Pat’s new girl, British singer-songwriter FKA Twigs. And by “going after” her we mean “berating her with disgusting racist remarks that have no place in society whatsoever.”...

  7. Mike Sorrentino of 'Jersey Shore' is in a sticky Situation

    Blog

    We’re not sure which is more disappointing: that Jersey Shore alum Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino earns millions of dollars a year or that he and his brother are accused of filing bogus tax returns on nearly $9 million and claiming millions in business expenses that were really for personal use.

    According to the Associated Press, Mike and his brother Marc Sorrentino pleaded not guilty to the charges in U.S. District Court on Wednesday. As The Sitch left the courthouse, he answered the question of whether he is innocent with a smile and an “of course.”...

  8. Cuba Gooding Jr. shows us the tummy

    Blog

    How does Cuba Gooding Jr. celebrate at a hockey game? By stripping, duh.

    Maybe nobody told him it’s still preseason, but for whatever reason, Gooding went wild — like, Girls Gone-style — after scoring during the “Shoot the Puck” intermission contest at a Blackhawks-Red Wings exhibition game.

    The rules are simple: Contestants are given three chances to shoot the puck from center ice into one of three holes in the net. Gooding, a hockey enthusiast, riled up the crowd before failing on his first two attempts. When the third shot proved successful, the Jerry Maguire actor slowly peeled off his jacket, then unbuttoned his shirt and ripped it open in a Hulk-like fashion....

  10. John Malkovich re-creates iconic photographs

    Blog

    No need to hack this A-lister’s iCloud. This majestic and hypnotising vision of John Malkovich as Bert Stern’s “Marilyn in Pink Roses” is all thanks to a collaboration between the actor and advertising photographer Sandro Miller.

    The pair have been friends for 15 years, and often, according to the Washington Post, Malkovich would waltz into Miller’s studio game for anything. So, one day, Miller flew to his pal’s home in France to propose a huge project: re-creating some of the most iconic images in photography with Malkovich as the subject. Think Dorothea Lange’s “Migrant Mother,” Andy Warhol’s “Green Marilyn” and “Self Portrait (Fright Wig),” Albert Watson’s “Alfred Hitchcock With Goose.” You know the ones....

  11. 'D2: Mighty Ducks' cast reunites after 20 (!) years

    Blog

    It’s been 20 years since D2: The Mighty Ducks came out — pause for a moment of silence for our youth, which is now very much R-ing.I.P. — so the cast decided to get together and post pictures on the Internet because that’s what forgotten actors of the ’90s do these days. #nostalgia.

    After weeding through the photos that look like a bunch of random people hanging out in Anywheresville, U.S.A., we chose these two that might actually look familiar....
