If you’re a dictator then dictate on the floor… Celebrity appearances are always super interesting to me, because it is such a clear indicator of where a celebrity brand stands. Birthday parties for Middle Eastern princes, front row at fashion shows, hip hop stars at Bat Mitzvahs…if you have the money, the celebrity experience – a performance, a personal shout-out, a photo – is up for grabs. Full Story

What’s worse than a woman belly cupping on a red carpet? The father belly cupping her on a red carpet. And what’s worse than the father belly cupping her on a red carpet?

Scarlett Johansson presented at the Tony Awards last night. She looked great. Love the cut of this tuxedo jacket. Love the lip colour so much. It’s a scary lip colour to try. I tried it a few months ago -- even darker than this -- and was put off initially because the lips were drawn exactly on the lip line. Full Story

To promote This is the End, Seth Rogen, Danny McBride, James Franco and Jonah Hill were interviewed for a cover feature on Rolling Stone. Among that group, who do you think would come across as the most pompous and least fun? If you guessed Jonah Hill, you guessed right. And in a group that includes Franco, who’s built a vacation house up his own ass, that’s kind of a problem. Full Story

As you know, Mrs Timberlake’s work schedule isn’t exactly heavy. Deadline posted yesterday that she’s fired her management. The wording of the article is hilarious as Deadline reports that CAA is supposedly “scrambling” to keep her as a client: “(Mrs Timberlake) discharged her managers late last week, and she will decide her future this week with CAA. Full Story

The Smiths are getting a lot of attention this week, particularly for the, um, curious Vulture interview -- click here if you missed Duana’s post on it. Patterns and Joe Kennedy? Child’s play compared to the cray cray that is Courtney Love. Full Story

Will Smith had it right in Summertime (I love that jam): Every moment frontin’ and maxin’ Chillin’ in the car they spent all day waxin’ Leanin’ to the side but you can't speed through Two miles an hour so everybody see you I mean, unless you’re on a race track, why city-drive a nice car like it’s a race? Come on, half the reason you’re buying it is because you want people to see you in it. Full Story

Jennifer Lopez was in New York yesterday at the NUVOtv Upfronts. Amazingly, the slum lover wasn’t with her.

JLO will return to the show to perform her latest single Live It Up. Full Story

Jennifer Lopez is in New York promoting her new album. Here she is on the publicity circuit yesterday looking great in leather pants and wedge sneakers, a trend that’s lasting a lot longer than I expected it to, and a sheer, peter pan collar black dress with off-white pumps. Great. It’s always great when Slum Bear isn’t around. Full Story
