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

Lola’s Summer Adventures

Hadn’t had a chance yet this week to write about Lola’s latest blog entry but don’t want to leave for Vegas before indulging in the amazingness that is Madonna’s oldest daughter. 14 year old creatures are entertaining enough as it is. You throw privilege and fame onto that and you get this. Full Story

Twitter was made for Kanye West. And Kanye West’s real Twitter could just be better than Karl Lagerfeld’s fake one. Kanye joined yesterday in advance of the upcoming release of his new still untitled album in September. As you know, and as I’ve said many times, I am a Kanye apologist. Full Story

New Ferns!

Dinner for Schmucks opens this weekend going up against Zac Efron’s Charlie St Cloud. Charlie so far is not receiving very good reviews. Dinner is faring better, but by no means great. Mixed reception at best from critics and many saying they’ve done a disservice to its French inspiration. Full Story

Don’t stand so close to Bruce Willis

Covering celebrities is a lot of hurry up and wait. Press events always require media to arrive early and then stand around for hours as the stars inevitably run behind. Boring as f-ck yes, but this is always when you exchange war stories, compare notes – who’s a great interview, who has an eating disorder, who can’t go five minutes with locking himself in the bathroom for a quick rail, who bites her fingernails and messes with your shot because she’s nic-fitting all over the junket room. Full Story

Pacey-Con the video

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 27, 2010 07:52:41 July 27, 2010 07:52:41

You saw the photos yesterday, now Funny or Die has uploaded the video. It’s not the best Funny or Die piece ever, it’s a little contrived and obvious, but his shirt makes up for it, and of course the song, and the shot of him looking out his hotel room window kills me. Makes me want to go back and watch Dawson’s Creek from the beginning. Full Story

Pacey-Con

There’s Robert Pattinson’s unintentional comedy, and then there’s Pacey-Con San Diego 2010. The.Best. He’s the best. Joshua Jackson was at Comic-Con for Fringe. On his down time he decided to go back to Capeside, wardrobe and all, for some fan fiction reading, and of course a little Paula Cole blaring from a boom box. Full Story

Robert Pattinson gold

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 26, 2010 09:35:04 July 26, 2010 09:35:04

These photos and this video are making my life. Robert Pattinson went to the movies on Saturday with his agent. Then he hit up a party in Malibu. The paps were all over him. First time? No but this time a tweaky Pattinson was extra agitated about the attention, whining that they were following him, trying to enlist the help of the cops who didn’t give a sh-t, wandering around seemingly aimlessly, rubbing his nose in his totally inconspicuous, non eye-catching, blend-in-anywhere car. Full Story

Dumpster diving

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 22, 2010 07:07:29 July 22, 2010 07:07:29

This is what Bill Murray did on Letterman last night. That’s another thing about Letterman over Leno. Cool people prefer Letterman. Bill Murray definitely prefers Letterman. Bill Murray would probably dive into a dumpster for reals before giving Leno any more love than necessary. And Bill went back to Letterman last night to promote Get Low and to also test out Dave’s new dumpster pool. Full Story

Summertime Pitt Porn

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 20, 2010 06:50:41 July 20, 2010 06:50:41

Oh thanks God. There was no Pitt Porn at Cannes this year and there’s been no Pitt Porn for months and it’s been a hot dry summer and now finally, finally they took the porn out for a ride and everything else stopped. All in service of course of Salt. Full Story

How to give great interview by Bill Murray

Lainey Posted by Lainey at July 19, 2010 12:58:00 July 19, 2010 12:58:00

He doesn’t do it often. He doesn’t work often. He doesn’t have an agent or a publicist. You can only reach him via 800 number. For reals. So when he does talk, he makes it worthwhile. Always. There was a great article about Bill Murray a couple of weeks ago in Entertainment Weekly about how reclusive and weird he is, about the infamous 800 number, about how you have to fax pages to a random Kinko’s if he’s interested enough to read the script – he’s everything you want your weird celebrity to be and he can back his sh-t up with legitimate skill, original, irreplaceable skill. Full Story

Working with the posse

This is Leonardo DiCaprio at the premiere of Inception in LA last night. His boy Lukas Haas was there too. Lukas has a smaller part in the film and will also be working on Red Riding Hood in Vancouver which Leo’s company is producing. You hook up your friends. And they’ve been friends for a long time. Full Story
