Romeo Beckham for Burberry

Lainey Posted by Lainey at December 17, 2012 19:28:26 December 17, 2012 19:28:26

Not even 10 years ago, the Beckhams were blamed, in part, for lowering the prestige of the Burberry brand -- they were associated with the “chav”-ness of the label and, rumour has it, for a while there, Mrs Beckham in particular, was banned from wearing it. Click here Full Story

This is the sh-t that really, REALLY makes me crazy. Like, when did they introduce new rules? People my age didn’t get the update. Is it true that when someone comes to your house now you don’t have to show them respect? You remember that incident with Justin Bieber wearing overalls when he was being honoured by the Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper? Click here Full Story

Gwen & Jessica: Phone Moms

Do you let your kid play with your phone? I do, and it’s become so bad that last night he hid my iPhone in his toy box. He’s sent texts, has called people and erased apps, and gotten it so wet it had to be replaced. All my fault, I know.  We are starting to institute a no electronics rule in the house after dinner, but seeing as we both, like, work in the real world, it’s a little difficult. Full Story

Liars and their denials

Lindsay Lohan called into TMZ yesterday. Click here if you have the time to listen to almost 15 minutes of a liar’s denial. I did. So I can save you the waste. In short: Her dad is the enemy and her ma, Dina, is the real hero, and Dina doesn’t use cocaine, and yes she gave her $40K to pay off her debts because Michael doesn’t pay child support. Full Story

TMZ has released audio of a hysterical Lindsay Lohan calling up her father Michael last night during that scrap with her mother. WHY IS HE TAPING THEIR CONVERSATIONS? Here’s what is said: Dina appeared to be on cocaine. Dina took 40 grand from Lindsay to keep her house. Full Story

Another proud night for the family of dickheads

Lindsay and Dina Lohan scrapped last night. They were at a club at 4am. On their way home to Long Island they started slapping each other. Lindsay has a cut on her leg and her ma broke her bracelet. The cops were called on a domestic. No one was arrested. I would like to believe that Dina was finally giving her daughter some structure -- at dawn, after a night of partying. Full Story

The New York Times Fangirls Maude Apatow

A few hours after my post on Maude Apatow went up on Friday (click here if you missed it), The New York Times posted a story on her: “She’s 14, Going on 140 Characters.” The article is supremely annoying (as these types of articles in the Times can be), but this one is especially patronizing and glib. Full Story

There’s a marked difference, to me, between a child star and a child actor. Miley Cyrus was a child star, Dakota Fanning was a child actor who became famous. I would count Maude and Iris Apatow in the child actor column because they only appear in their dad Judd’s movies (and their mom Leslie Mann is always their mom). Full Story

Chicken Fried Princess gets a message from bed

Lainey Posted by Lainey at May 28, 2012 15:19:01 May 28, 2012 15:19:01

“Daddy will love me if I agree to be on this show. Jason, my fiancé, will love me even more if I agree to be in this show. Jason will be there, holding my hand. Jason is smiling at me and nodding his head in encouragement. I’m doing a good job. I’m making him proud of me.” - This is what I wrote last week in an article about Britney Spears’s first day on X Factor auditions, having bailed halfway through the day, incapable of getting through the job without several long “breaks”, and no doubt a booster handful of pills and some sweet-talking, both administered, presumably, by Jason Trawick, her fiancé and conservator who must now resort to video messages taken in bed, and posted on the internet as a public proclamation of his pride and love so as to keep his ward motivated. Full Story

Bieber cracks?

Justin Bieber has pretty much owned the world the last 2 years. And through it all, including what amounted to a bogus paternity claim, Team Bieber has never wavered - not a stumble, not a break in stride, not a crack in the facade. But it happens to all of them. You know. When they start that young and when it happens so fast, it will always happen to all of them. Full Story

Chicken Fried needs her breaks

It was the first day of auditions for X Factor yesterday with judge Britney Spears. TMZ reported that she lost her sh-t over a contestant singing Hold It Against Me and took off, leaving the other 3 on the panel to continue during her “break”. Britney’s people insist that that’s all it was: a break. Full Story
