Before this year’s Oscars take over every news feed, I’d hate for this year’s surprising winners to be thrust upon you before you even got a chance to be properly shocked about all of the ones from the past. More
If there’s one thing that Cher and Rihanna have in common, it’s their ability to shock people with their overtly sexual attire. More
A lot of people are angry at Kim Kardashian for making a mockery of the institution of marriage for a chance to play princess on television for a day. I would argue that these people are overlooking the true crime committed by Ms. Kardashian: doing it in an ultra-boring way. Over the years, we’ve come to expect crazy short marriages from our celebrities; I would argue that this particular bit of tabloid culture has become an American institution to rival traditional marriage. But we do not want them to be by the books or, even worse, transparently fake. We want them to at least appear to be spontaneous, bizarre, and genuinely pathological. (No, Kim’s pathological need for fame doesn’t count.) Here are ten celebrity couples who did the short marriage thing in a better, crazier, and more entertaining fashion than Kim Kar-snooze-ian and what’s-his-name ever could. More
Says the guy who got to write the comic, “She has been very much the real life equivalent of a superhero, and writing about Cher, to a large degree, has been just about letting my imagination go.” Aww… so we can make fun of it only a little. More
Fans of Dancing with the Stars have taken to the message boards to criticize ABC’s casting of transgender contestant Chaz Bono (a move that GLAAD commended). Fans have gone so far as to threaten to skip the show this season on account of Chaz, who will be dancing with Lacey Schwimmer. One comment in particular struck me as especially ridiculous:
Year 1′s the paper anniversary, year 10′s the diamond anniversary and year 15 is the Barbie anniversary. Or, at least it is if you’re Faith Hill and Tim McGraw, who have just been immortalized in plastic by Mattell. What other singers have Barbie versions sitting on the shelves? LeAnn Rimes and Cher, to name a few. More
What’s a “rebulican” and why is it such an asshole? Additionally, what’s spell check and why is it something that every single person should use, always? Furthermore, what’s Twitter and why is music artist Cher using it to spew undecipherable vitriol about politics? Someone, anyone, please answer our questions. More

I’ve always said if the perfume fits, WEAR IT, amirightladies? Okay, I’ve never said that. But what I have said numerous times to no one in particular (because no one is listening) is that the one thing I love more than pretending I’m a celebrity is smelling like one. Thank God some of the most fabulous famous womyn out there make it easy to bathe in their scent. Let’s honor the memory of the celebrity perfume original gangstress, Elizabeth Taylor, and chat about some of the best fragrances out there. Hiding the smell of sadness is wrong then please don’t tell me otherwise, amirightladies? More
The jig is up. Rihanna and Ryan Phillippe have apparently been doing it. And according to Us Weekly, this has been going on for months! How sneaky to not let the nosey gossip world in on such a secret until now. We think Reese Witherspoon is shaking her huge 4-carat diamond engagement ring at you Rihanna…and she is laughing.
I see her now all up on her BBM chatting at Kate Winslet: “Yuck! OMG what a loser, I thought she was smarter than that! Oh well, at least Rihanna is hot.” Then Kate is all: “Oh no! Rihanna has The Herp!” Then they proceed to send LoL and all those other patronizing BBM acronyms that exist.
But as weird as the temporary coupling of Rihanna and Ryan might be, it’s definitely not the weirdest thing that Hollywood has hurled at us. Let’s take a moment to look at the weirdest bedtime pairings that Hollywood has presented over the last few decades, shall we? More
Yes indeed, it’s a Burlesque blooper reel. Which is somehow different than just Burlesque? More
Ricky Gervais is already on tap to host The Golden Globes this January. But the awards committee also scored Katie Holmes and Josh Duhamel to make the nominee announcements this morning. Hott.
Black Swan, Glee, The Social Network and The Kids Are Alright all have multiple nominations. But what are we most excited about?
The fact that Burlesque was nominated for Best Picture. Why? Because that almost guarantees that Cher will show up wearing a see-through dress to the ceremonies. Yesssss. More
