Evan Rachel Wood always seemed sort of intense to us, from the roles she chooses to play, to the fact that she dated Marilyn Manson for four years, to her occasional penchant for Lolita-esque attire. She’s not someone we would have pegged as a giant Justin Bieber fan. But oh, is she ever.
In an interview with New York Magazine, Wood professes her love for Bieber, and it’s totally unironic. “I’m really enjoying being single and concentrating on work right now. That and watching the Food Network and listening to Justin Bieber. People honestly think I’m kidding about Bieber,” she said, possibly unaware of the fact that the only other musician she’s ever been associated with is the anti-Bieber. And also the Anti-Christ. “My mom is so confused. She’s like, ‘Evan, really?’ I’m like, ‘Go see Never Say Never. You’ll understand.’” Hear that Justin? Rihanna might not want to date you, but maybe you should ask Wood out, sounds like she’s game!
If anyone needed any more convincing that bicycle safety is serious business, look to this photo of a bruised Samantha Ronson as proof. The DJ posted the pic to her Twitter yesterday (with the caption reading “Wear a helmet, kids!”) after being involved in an accident late Saturday night after a gig where she swerved her bike to avoid hitting a car and ended up hitting the pavement withing nothing but her face to break the fall.
Ronson, despite two black eyes and multiple stitches, sounds like she’s in good spirits, posting regular Twitter updates like “Eating with a straw, feeling like @kanyewest, minus the wire. I’d post a pic, but I don’t want to scare you” and “i look remarkably like the elephant man.” She also writes that she’s not deterred from cycling in L.A. despite being banged up, saying “gonna ride my bike til i crack my dome.” Hopefully Ronson is up and around soon!
It’s no secret that Keshia Knight Pulliam, who played Rudy Huxtable on The Cosby Show and who we thought would make a great best friend, has grown into a gorgeous woman. Pulliam showed her grown up side in Chingy’s video for “One Call Away” a couple years ago and it was a far cry away from the little Rudy we knew and loved, and she certainly looked gorgeous on the red carpet of the TV Land Awards last night as well. Check out some of our most favorite television stars from The Cosby Show, Family Ties, and The Facts of Life, who were all honored with awards last night at the ceremony in New York City. Everyone seems to have aged pretty well, but no one’s as hot as Keshia. (Sorry, Abe Vigoda.)
The awards will air on April 17th at 9pm ET on TV Land.
Gucci Mane has been arrested on charges that stemmed from an incident that occurred back in January. The rapper, whose real name is Radric Davis, had a warrant out for his arrest for an incident that occurred in January when he offered a woman $150 to go to a hotel with him and, after she refused, he pushed her out of his moving car.
While he was visiting his probation officer in Atlanta last week, he was arrested for misdemeanor battery and for violating his probation as a result of that. Gucci has been on probation since 2005 for an aggravated assault conviction, which he also served six months in prison for. He was also arrested in November after police officers saw driving the rapper erratically and arguing with a passenger in his car, and after being pulled over, Gooch hit the man and needed to be subdued with pepper spray.
Gucci seems especially angry and aggravated, but you might be too if you had a giant ice cream cone tattoo on your face.
Not sure what Jim Carrey has been painting or who’s been doing his hair, but he looks worlds apart from his normal, goofy self in this Twitpic he posted recently, with the caption “I am a paintbrush.” That’s gonna require some serious scrubbing to get off.
Back in January we reported that Beastie BoyAdam Yauch‘s battle with cancer was successful, and since his treatments have ended, the band has been busy. They’ve been working on their latest album, Hot Sauce Committee Part Two, which will release on May 3, and they made a short film called Fight For Your Right: Revisited, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. The trailer for the short was just released online and as you can imagine, the film revisits and reenacts the Boys’ famous “(You Gotta) Fight For Your Right (To Party)” video and consists of wall-to-wall celebrity cameos. Check out the who’s who of Hollywood comedians (and Susan Sarandon and Stanley Tucci which … sure, why not?) in the video above.
We’ve noticed that Ashlee Simpson‘s recent style choices are nearly identical to the style of model Agyness Deyn. Yes, both of them are hipsters who like hats, musicians, and vintage band t-shirts and that’s not all that uncommon. But after comparing and contrasting the two, it actually seems like they routinely follow in each others style footsteps. Ashlee dyes her hair black, Agyness dyes her hair black. Agyness throws a fedora on, Ashlee throws a fedora on. Great minds thinking alike, or two fashionable starlets copying each other’s looks? Check out a few more uncanny side-by-side photos and decide for yourself.
Hailee Steinfeld may not have won the role of Katniss in The Hunger Games, but she’s about to take on a much more famous part. Steinfeld was cast as Juliet in a reboot of Romeo and Juliet, which will film in Italy later this year. It will be her first film since shooting True Grit, for which she received an Oscar nom.
Steinfeld, 14, is the same age as Juliet in the Shakespeare play, and we think she looks just like Olivia Hussey, who also played Juliet in the 1968 version of the film. (Anyone else have to watch that for tenth grade English class? Just us? Okay.) No word on who will play opposite Steinfeld as her Romeo.
This season of American Idol is throwing us off our game. We’re so used to fast forwarding through intolerable Ford music videos and suffering through silly critiques from “musicians” like Will.i.am, but this season is changing all the rules and providing so much jaw-dropping entertainment. Literally, last night when Ryan Seacrest announced that front-runner Pia Toscano was this week’s eliminated contestant, our mouth hung open in awe. Toscano was gorgeous and wowed everyone from the get-go, but in all honesty, we didn’t think she’d take the whole thing because she lacks the stage presence and personality that some of the other contestants have. (Hell, Paul McDonald‘s painted blazer has more personality.) Still, we thought she’d make it to the top three and were shocked to see her go. Wonder if the judges are regretting using that save on Casey Abrams?
It seems like we just might have an unhealthy obsession with some of Hollywood’s teenage actresses. Not in a creepy way, more like “How did these girls avoid an awkward phase and end up so cool?”
We love Chloe Moretz‘ fashion sense, and we think Rango star Abigail Breslin has come into her own, but now they have a fierce fashion competitor in Saoirse Ronan. Ronan has seen quite a few red carpets in her sixteen years and her style has matured well beyond her age. She consistently chooses age-appropriate, but still killer outfits that we covet. Check out some of our faves, including her look at last night’s premiere of Hanna, which opens tomorrow.
