Marilyn Manson Is “Swinging,” Talking to Ex

Poor Marilyn Manson. The man will say anything for a little ink in the tabloids. In his latest attempt to be noticed, he’s likened himself to cheese, admitted he and Evan Rachel Wood aren’t exclusive, and started using slang your parents wouldn’t even touch.

In a remark made to People magazine, the self-proclaimed God of F*ck confessed to keeping in touch with ex-wife Dita Von Teese, who reportedly left him when she discovered he was cheating on her.

“I talk to her now a little bit. I am not a Kraft piece of cheese. I don’t like to be classified. If I was on MySpace, I would say ‘swinging.'” Looks like Evan Rachel Wood went goth for naught.


Five Songs For Madonna, Five Songs For Guy

As we told you earlier this week, Madonna and her Material Guy are kaput after eight years of faux-English-accented, long-distance matrimony. And while we aren’t exactly surprised, we’re certainly bummed for everyone involved. After weeks of rumors, an “affair of the heart” and finally Madonna’s diss the other night at her Boston show, we decided that what everyone needs is a little healing, and nothing heals a heartbreak like music. Since we refuse to take sides in this (we’re totally fair like that), we’ve made two playlists of videos specifically tailored to the experience each is having. So while they’re sorting through their ginormous piles of money this weekend, they’ll have a little something to listen to.

Top 10 Shortest Celebrity Marriages

Looks like Madge and her Material husband are no more. After years of rumors as to the unhappiness of the pair, Madge’s “affair of the heart” this summer with Yankee Alex Rodriguez, and the fact that Madonna‘s been everywhere but her adopted home of London using that fake accent of hers, we’ve been pretty sure trouble’s been brewing for a while. But the pair stuck it out for eight years, which is a lot longer than most celebrity couples stay married.

In the gallery below, we’ve put together some of the all-time shortest celebrity marriages. From Britney‘s Vegas quickie to Barrymore’s bar nuptials, these folks have proven they *are* just like us, by making really dumb mistakes. From those that were hitched for hours to months, find out which of your favorite celebs said “I do,” only to have their lawyers tell them they didn’t.

Audrina And Her Hills

The Hills hottie Audrina Patridge graces the cover of lad mag Maxim this month, and she dishes the dirt on dating, LC and Heidi, and how she ended up in this crazy, MTV-created parallel universe in the first place.

Sorry fellas, if you don’t do reality television, Audrina doesn’t do you: “The producers try to get me to persuade guys I’m interested in to be on it. If the paparazzi shoot me out on a date and it’s not on the show, it makes the show look fake. If the guy won’t do it, I’ll just be like, ‘This isn’t a good time.’ And I’ll start dating someone else.”

While most girls work for years to break into the industry, Audrina just got lucky: “I was lying out by the pool in the apartment complex Lauren and Heidi were living in, and a producer started talking to me. He liked that I just moved to L.A. to break out into the industry, like the other girls on the show.”

She’s like Switzerland, in more ways than one: “[Heidi and Lauren] really don’t like each other, but I’m friends with both of them. When we hang out, I don’t talk about the other. I’m like Switzerland. ” [Photos: Stephan Wurth]

Zac Calls Vanessa A Dork

Poor Zanessa. Every pair of high school sweethearts are faced with the tough decision of whether to break up, or attempt to make it work through college (or their mediocre, post-Disney careers). And in the case of Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens, it’s decision time.

As we’ve pointed out, they haven’t looked happy together for ages. And now, after the premiere of their the third installment of their brain-dead musical comedy High School Musical 3, things are coming to a head. Unsure of her wardrobe choice for the film’s UK premiere, Vanessa opted for a jacket, so as to prevent her “butt…hanging out.” After a few photos were snapped sans jacket, Vanessa wanted the jacket back, at which time, Zac told her she’d “look like a dork.”

Another sign of trouble in tween paradise? Having tired of playing a 17-year-old, the 20-year-old might follow in the full-frontal-nudity footsteps of Harry Potter by starring in a Broadway production of Equus.


Holly Madison: Through The Ages

As we’ve been telling you for the past few months, there’s trouble in the house of Playboy. According to sources, Hugh Hefner and his lead lady Holly Madison have finally split after having been on the rocks for a little while now, and its all do to the arrival of a set of twins who’ve just moved into the house.

Since Holly moved into the mansion seven years ago, she’s undergone quite the transformation. Check out our photo gallery of Holly to see how she’s changed, both physically and otherwise, throughout her relationship with Hef. [Getty Images]

Katy Perry Hates The Hills, Loves Her Thugs

Girl-kissing, hot-pant wearing singer Katy Perry is Blender‘s covergirl for the month of November, and, unsurprisingly, Ms. Perry dished the dirt. The former born-again told the magazine all about her relationship with Gym Class Heroes‘ singer Travis McCoy, what she thinks of The Hills, and her connection to Jimi Hendrix. Check out a few of her choice quotes…

While she may like kissing girls, there’s definitely one particular bunch she’s not too interested in…the girls of The Hills. Of the differences between Ms. Perry, LC and Heidi, she has this to say: “Those ladies are a totally different breed. A cheeseburger’s fine if you’re just looking for something quick to fill you up, but there’s no substitute for the filet!”

Though Perry’s parents are staunch born-agains now, turns out Katy isn’t the only hellraiser in the family. Her mother fled a life of privilege to see the world, running into Jimi Hendrix and dating him for a while. “He just came up to her in a club and picked her out.”

Boyfriend Travis McCoy of the Gym Class Heroes — who gave Perry a promise ring this summer — wasn’t always so eager to commit. In fact, Perry had to give him an ultimatum. “He’s thug-nificent. I can’t believe I got a thug to commit! We weren’t really together, it was casual. But soulless hooking up didn’t seem so hot to me. I always wanted to have a romance. I said ‘Excuse me, I’ve been coming to a number of your shows in the greater Los Angeles area for quite some time now. I’ve been your Penny Lane long enough, and now I want to be your Grace Kelly.'”

Paris Threatens To Unleash Kids Onto World (Again)

Ever since bleached tramp Paris Hilton wandered into our lives, the harlot with the sex tape of gold has told everyone who would listen how badly she wants to have kids. No matter the man, Paris is always planning on making him into the daddy du jour. Most recently, Paris again stated her intent, to People magazine at her sister’s birthday party. “I definitely want three or four [children],” she said. “Soon.”

We’d probably be terrified at this prospect, if we actually thought Paris was serious about this threat. You see, we’ve been getting our hopes up for tanorexic toddlers for years now. Check out a brief history of Paris telling everyone how ready to be a mom she is.

“I’d love to [have babies] in the next couple years.”
Entertainment Tonight, February 3, 2008

“I was like, ‘Oh my god I need a baby now so that our kids will be able to play together like we did.'”
People magazine, November 28, 2007

“Yeah! But I don’t have anyone to have one with.”
In answer to the question of whether she wants to have kids on Ellen, November 2007

“I wanna have like a family and a guy. I just started working out and it feels great. It gives me so much energy. I want kids next year, so I’ve got to get my body ready.”
British Elle, September 13, 2007

“I know in my heart of hearts I would be a great mother. I have a lot of beautiful animals that I look after and I feel that I would have a lot to give to my children…And I don’t want to be an old mom — hopefully it’ll happen soon.”
The London Mirror, July 5, 2006

“I want a large family…I want to name them London and Paris and I was thinking China. But I already know a couple of Chinas so I don’t want that one now.”
July 2006

“I want to find the perfect person to marry when I’m 25 or 26. I want to be a young, cool mother, like my mom, who had me at 19…I want to have three kids — a boy first, to protect the girls.”

The 10 Biggest Feuds In Hip-Hop History

There’s no tradition in hip-hop more exciting than the feud. Since the earliest days of street-corner rhyme battles, MCs have been taking each other head-on, fighting to be the best on the block, the hottest in the neighborhood, or the king of the whole game. Rap beefs can originate anywhere, from a subtle slight to a full-on threat. Sometimes they’re funny, sometimes they’re tragic, and sometimes they’re just plain weird. Here, from old-school word wars to semi-automatic shootouts, we count down the ten biggest feuds in rap history. Click into the gallery below to begin. [Photos: Getty Images]
