Sienna Miller Moving In With Jude Law


Proving that she has learned nothing from the past, Sienna Miller is planning to sell her London home and move in with Jude Law. Miller and Law were engaged in 2006 but broke up when it turned out that Law enjoyed spending quality time inside his children’s nanny. But who’s remembering all that?

A friend told the Daily Mail that, “They are back on track and living together is the next step. They had an amazing holiday at Christmas and made a decision to commit to one another.” The couple reunited back in October when they were both performing on Broadway and we assume they’ll stay together until Jude meets his illegitimate baby’s nanny. Because, oh right, he knocked up another chick in between shtupping the nanny and getting back with Sienna this time around. Again, who’s remembering all that? Certainly not Sienna!

Taylor Momsen Is So Like, Whatever It’s Not Even Funny


In a new, thoroughly exhausting interview, Taylor Momsen‘s apathetic teen “whatever”-ness comes out in full force. Momsen’s really working her f*ck-all persona lately, what with her recent quote about being too busy to think about Haiti, and now in this interview in the Times Online she tells parents who don’t like her style to eff off.

“To be honest. I don’t f***ing care. I didn’t get into this to be a role model. So I’m sorry if I’m influencing your kids in a way that you don’t like, but I can’t be responsible for their actions. I don’t care,” Momsen said. We don’t know if you caught what she was saying, but the gist is that she doesn’t care.

Momsen also discussed a famous role she didn’t accept, that of Hannah Montana. But again, if you think she cares about not being the Disney Channel’s biggest star, think again. “Honestly, if I’d have ended up as Hannah Montana, I don’t know if the show would have gone as well. I probably would have told them all to go f*** themselves by the time I hit 11. And I don’t know how that would have gone down. It’s great for Miley, but I really like where I am right now and I feel really fortunate to be able to really be myself.”

Really? You really think that at 11 you’d be telling people to f*** off? What a charming child you must have been. We are so looking forward to the day when adult Taylor, dressed in her best slacks and sensible cardigan, looks back on these faux-badass quotes and laughs at how obnoxious she sounds. ‘Cause that’s what we’re doing right now.

Nancy Kerrigan’s Father Dies, Brother Charged With Assault


Olympic figure skater Nancy Kerrigan is in the news today, but not because of the upcoming Winter Olympics. Tragically, Kerrigan’s father Daniel died after an altercation with her brother Mark, who is being charged with assault and battery on a person over 60. The elder Kerrigan appears to have had a heart attack as a result of a struggle with his son in their Massachusetts home. Mark was recently released from a local house of corrections after being jailed for a separate case of assault and battery. He pleaded not guilty to the charges surrounding his father’s death and is being held on $10,000 bail.

Kerrigan herself is famous for being the victim of an attack during the 1994 Winter Olympics when rival Tonya Harding and her husband Jeff Gillooly conspired to attack Kerrigan in order to take her out of the competition. She recovered from the attack to win a silver medal that year. [Photo: Getty Images]


Idol Contestant’s Dad Ruins His Chances


We’re betting that American Idol contestant Michael Lynche isn’t too happy with his father right now. You may not recognize Lynche’s name yet because the Idol hopeful only just made it to Hollywood during this past week’s Orlando auditions (and was possibly overshadowed by Kara DioGuardi‘s obnoxiousness and the guy who was dragged off in handcuffs).  Unfortunately, Lynche’s golden ticket isn’t going to take him all the way to the finals this year. The singer was cut from the show after his father violated a confidentiality clause when he told a local newspaper that his son made it to the Top 24.

In his audition video, Lynche, a.k.a. Big Mike, shows off his personality and his big guns – seriously, his arms are the size of our torso – and says he got his start singing in church. We hope he also learned how to forgive in church, because we bet he’s pretty upset with his father at the moment. [Photo:]


Black Eyed Peas Accidentally Win At NRJ Awards


Awkward moment at France’s NRJ Music Awards this past weekend: while Ke$ha and French choreographer Kamel Ouali were giving out the award for Best International Group, they inadvertently named the Black Eyed Peas the winner when in fact, the award should have gone to Tokio Hotel. The presenters were given a list of all the nominees rather than just the name of the winner, and accidentally read off the Black Eyed Peas name since they were at the top of the list.

In the clip we found, which is mostly in French aside from Ke$ha’s stereotype-perpetuating ditz-English, the duo announce the nominees and Ouali, after taking a confusing look at the card, announced the winner as the  Black Eyed Peas,. The news bewilders everyone in the audience except for the Black Eyed Peas, who clearly knew ahead of time that they weren’t going to win or else they would have walked to the stage to accept the trophy. Later, Ouali and the host of the show apologize and correct the mistake.

It should be noted that Jay-Z and Alicia Keys were also nominated in the category for “Empire State Of Mind” and didn’t win, which proves that France really does have terrible taste in music. The Black Eyed Peas didn’t go home empty-handed though, they later won Best International Song for “I Gotta Feeling.”  [Photo: Getty Images]


Gary Coleman Arrested In Utah


If there was a Celebrity Mug Shot Hall Of Fame, you can be sure that Nick Nolte‘s infamous crazy-haired mug shot would of course be #1, and Michael Jackson‘s “Who? Me?” look would get an honorable mention, too.  Thanks to Gary Coleman‘s arrest this weekend, we have a new favorite to add to the collection.

After being picked up by police in Santaquin, Utah on Sunday for an outstanding domestic violence warrant and for failing to appear in court, Coleman was jailed overnight and is still being held. Coleman isn’t looking crazy so much as he’s channeling his old character Arnold Drummond from Diff’rent Strokes here, it’s like he’s giving the photographer the old “Whatchu talkin’ ’bout, Willis?” with his eyes.  Coleman is being held on $1725 bail, which makes us wonder where Mr. Drummond is when you really need him.

TMI Alert: Michael Douglas Loves Viagra


Admittedly, we love Michael Douglas more than your average person might, due to the fact that Romancing the Stone and Fatal Attraction are two of our most favorite movies, but there are some things better left unknown when it comes to your favorite celebs. Douglas, for instance, would like the world to know that in order to keep Catherine Zeta-Jones happy, he takes boner pills. He explained their sexy times in AARP Magazine, saying “God bless her that she likes older guys. And some wonderful enhancements have happened in the last few years—Viagra, Cialis—that can make us all feel younger.” Wait, where are you going, fond memories of buff, hot Michael Douglas toting a rifle around the Columbian jungle with Kathleen Turner? Come back! And…they’re gone. See what you did, Michael? You’ve ruined your former self for us.

So you see, celebrities, perhaps it’s better not to give the tell-all interview you assume everyone wants to read, because sometimes your fans don’t want to think about you and your erection that might last up to four-hours. Swear to God, if any celebrity out there decides to come clean about their weak stream, we’re quitting this business. [Photo: Getty Images]


Hamm And Franco, Together At Last


True story: the last time we visited L.A., we were in a restaurant when our friend casually said “Hey, James Franco is in the parking lot,” and within four seconds we had bolted out the door to look for him. Not to talk to him, mind you, we just wanted to admire him from a short distance. That’s also why we watch Mad Men, to admire Jon Hamm through the magical picture box. You can imagine how we felt when our eyes feasted on this photo from last night’s Sundance Film Festival premiere of Howl. Franco portrays Beat poet Allen Ginsberg in the film, and Hamm plays his attorney. We don’t object.

For more pics from the film, which also stars David Strathairn, Treat Williams, and Mary-Louise Parker, check out our gallery. [Photos: Getty Images]

Gabby Sidibe “Blacked Out” When She Met Oprah


For the last year, Gabourey Sidibe‘s star has risen higher than she probably ever thought possible due to her star turn in Precious. The awesome thing is that. as famous as she’s become, she is completely unaffected, in addition to being an amazing soundbite machine. One recent interview in the Daily Mail was a gem though, and we pulled some of our favorite quotes to prove our point.

On what it was like being a newcomer working with seasoned performers: “There were definitely no egos during filming and it was so exciting working with people I consider to be heroes. I just spent most of my time pretending that I actually belonged there.”

On Mariah Carey‘s prep for her role: “It wasn’t a big deal for me to dress down for the part. Mariah had it all stripped away and she had to put on the uglies every day!”

On her new fame: “I’m aware that people want to be friends for shady reasons and a lot of boys have suddenly come out of the woodwork, wanting to be with me. I’m thinking: ‘Do you really believe I’m that dumb?'”

On where she gets her sense of humor: “My mom was so proud of me in the film, but she laughed at inappropriate times.”

On meeting Oprah Winfrey: “I was on her show, so I know there’s documentary evidence of me having been there, but I can’t even begin to remember what she said. She’s such an icon, I kind of blacked out.”

We totally would black out if we met Opes, too, Gabby! If you have any other fun stories you want to share or if you just wanna hang out, call us – seriously.

Spice Girls Musical In The Works


Are you a Spice Girls fan who longs to see their hit songs brought to life onstage, and you’re willing to pay around eighty bucks for the experience? Then we have some good news! Theater producer Judy Craymer, the mastermind behind the stage and film versions of Mamma Mia!, has struck a deal with Spice Girls creator Simon Fuller in order to create a musical based on the group’s pop songs.

The Spice Girls themselves will likely have nothing to do with the show and there won’t actually be characters based on them (although that would be kind of awesome: a dramatic reenactment of the day Posh met Becks? Yes, please.) Instead, like Mamma Mia!, the show will use the group’s songs to tell a fictional story. Boy meets girl, boy wants to be girl’s lover, boy has to get with girl’s friends, and eventually two become one. Tentatively titled “Viva Forever”, the show will take two to three years before debuting. Until then, we’ll be sending Judy Craymer notes with our ideas on how best to portray the elusive “Zig-ah-zig-ahh” onstage. [Photo: Getty Images]
