'Special' Celebrities and Hollywood stars who make you laugh and smile by being overly pampered, out-of-touch, eccentric, or hilariously delusional.

Beyonce was remarkably restrained yesterday at the inauguration, don’t you think? Just imagine what it could have been: Instead of opening her number with her back to the million, legs spread apart, and an ass jiggle followed by a hair whip before singing the first bars of The Star Spangled Banner, Beysus surveyed her people majestically, without a coat on, of course. Full Story

American Idol, Season 12, Episode 1 recap. (Lainey: Dean thinks the Mimi-Minaj drama is a fraud. I, as you know, think it’s legit. But I suck at recaps, and Dean’s more advanced at Mimi knowledge than I am. So here’s the first installment of what’s becoming the best show in the history of television. Full Story

Pipsqueak is a big f-cking deal. But he’s not a legend, yet. While Justin Timberlake’s approach was to hijack awards shows with his return to music after 6 years, while teasing people for days beforehand, and shooting some kind of arty video, David Bowie just dropped his new song on his 66th birthday, totally by surprise, without any fanfare or self-dicksucking. Full Story

When does the Cecil B DeMille Award recipient ever take over the Golden Globes? Never, right? It’s the only moment of the show without suspense. The whole room knows, weeks and weeks in advance, who’s getting it. And even if the recipient gives a great speech, it’s rarely great enough to dominate the post-show discussion. Full Story

If you’ve looked through these photos, you need no explanation. If not, by the end of this article, you will too love life. American Idol panelled on TCA yesterday featuring all judges, including, yes, Mimi and Nicki Minaj. And, well, journalists at the TCA, especially at panel sessions, don’t always have to kiss ass. Full Story

This is the idea. Here’s our Mimi on the beach in Australia after performing three shows there over the holidays. She’s home now but this photo was released yesterday, just making sure you know that she’s fit...if, ahem, you believe that this image is completely untouched. Guess what? Just one more week. Full Story

It’s so exciting to be at the very start of a new year, full of possibility, opportunity, fresh starts, etc. Still …isn’t it comforting to know that, while time may pass, Chloe Sevigny remains unchanged? That she’ll continue to prowl the streets of New York dressed like a human slipper/sock? That she’ll still appear completely miserable as she skulks out of luxury boutiques in Soho, even while draped in the pelts of the cast of Monsters, Inc. Full Story

I know it’s supposed to be Lauryn Hill and the St Francis Choir and it’s blasphemy for me to suggest imagining Mimi as the subject of the song but... Look at her. Our Mimi. Look at her and tell me, don’t these lyrics apply? Clearly as the sun above Melts the clouds of sin and sadness Drive the dark of doubt away Giver of immortal gladness Fill us with the light Fill us with the light Oh fill us with the light of day It is Christmas. Full Story

GOD, did I need her today. Nothing stresses me out more than when I can’t get online. I’ve been cranky this morning. And then... Sunshine. My darling sunshine... Mimi, obviously. As I wrote the other day, it’s not really Christmas until Mimi’s in Aspen squished into a snowsuit and tottering on the ice in stilettos. Full Story

One of the greatest joys of Christmas is the sight of my Mimi in Aspen. Every year she jams herself into a skin tight snowsuit and tricks out a pair of fur boots -- sometimes with a heel -- and pretends that she knows how to ski. It’s a glorious annual tradition and it never really feels like Christmas until she’s there, tottering around on the icy sidewalk, in full hair and makeup, somehow always beautifully lit, clutching one of her dogs. Full Story

Sorry to interrupt your afternoon with some sexual awkwardness, but Nick Cannon has done something that we simply must address. Last week I wrote about how Mariah Carey loves to act sexy and sing about sexy sex but that her sex life still seems somehow unimaginable. Click here Full Story
