There was some stupid rumour circulating earlier this week that Simon Cowell was considering Taylor Momsen to host the US X Factor. When asked about it, Cowell was very clear about Taylor’s chances: "Who? I don't know who that is. Unless there's something someone's not telling me. Full Story

Of Vegas. It’s Celine. She’s back at Caesars for a multiyear run that will reportedly earn her $100 million. Last night was the kick-off. Obviously I wasn’t there, but judging from the photos, well, it certainly looks like Celine was Celine. And maybe even with a few new moves? Am currently obsessed with what appears to be a gesture from the half-hip – check out the photo of her in the black dress with the generous slit as she’s throwing one side of her body into some kind of gyration. Full Story

This photo cracks me up. Many of you email consistently asking for more Jon Stewart. He’s on your Five Lists. Totally down with that. Stewart’s not papped very often though. Much as you love him, Jon doesn’t sell. And unless he does something wicked and crazy – not likely – he’s not going to land on the cover of a tabloid magazine. Full Story

Have you read the recent New York Times piece on Salma Hayek? I ate up every word. They interview her in Paris at a photo shoot. Then they go to Café de Flore. And she goes on about how she’s a housewife now. A proper Parisian housewife, married to the man who owns Balenciaga and McQueen and Stella McCartney etc etc etc, who cooks dinner every night. Full Story

If you’ve been reading my blog long enough, you know I am obsessed with Sam Taylor-Wood and Aaron Johnson. So much. They met of course when Sam directed Aaron in Nowhere Boy. Then she had his baby last year. Now they’ve collaborated again on the video for REM’s Uberlin. Have you seen it? Check it out below. Full Story

Written by Sarah I’ve been very enthusiastic in my support of Charlie Sheen’s TORNADO OF AWESOME over the last couple of weeks. I refuse to call it a “meltdown” or a “trainwreck” or a “downward spiral”. Full Story

Today’s the day you can download Adele’s new album 21 in North America. Or buy it old school styles on CD. When was the last time you bought a CD? This is Adele yesterday, in New York, arriving at Letterman before her performance. I woke up early this morning, ready to face the day with my banana and my oatmeal, and started it off by watching the video. Full Story

How else would you describe it? This is Lady Gaga at Good Morning America today arriving in typical crazy ass fashion, wearing a rubber suit, like literally a suit, with nipple tape and, by her standards, a rather ordinary hat. Yesterday, while out and about, she was almost conservative, in a denim jacket, leggings, and biker boots. Full Story

Best Grammy Abs: Lady Gaga

She leans out when she’s touring/rehearsing. And it’s all that hot yoga. But goddamn I want those abs. Maybe after this f-cking cleanse I can start working on them. So you know she arrived as an embryo. It’s a little obvious, obviously, but then again Gaga has never been known for subtlety. Full Story

It is my pleasure to open this Friday with a post about Jon Hamm and anuses. I assure you this is the plural for “anus” because, as you will see, he discovers that himself. (Thanks to Lisa/Ann for sending along the link!) Hamm supported his friend Jon Glaser at Glaser’s book release party the other day. Full Story

I’m a huge f-cking movie star&I make giant movies

Matt Damon was not in Dallas for the Super Bowl. Instead, he spent the weekend in Malibu with his wife and all their girls. They have a lot of girls. And he does make giant movies and is a huge f-cking movie star but somehow Matt Damon finds time to shoot 30 Rock cameos and Jimmy Kimmel joke clips and Entourage appearances and produce independent films and work as the ambassador for a charity called One X One and shoot ESPN interviews about Mike McCarthy that crack us up. Full Story
