Lisa Marie Presley’s Sunflower Wishes Granted

That was quick! Lisa Marie Presley JUST wrote a letter on MySpace asking fans to send sunflowers to Michael Jackson’s grave site. We just wrote how fans disagree with LMP’s claims that MJ’s final resting place isn’t getting big love.

Well, TMZ is reporting that a flower company has responded to Presley’s wish and is going to deliver a truckload of sunflowers – MJ’s favorite flower – to surround him. Jason Levin from sunflowerguy.com says he’s shipping several thousands of the happy flower to the King of Pop’s mausoleum ASAP. And it’s all because of Lisa Marie’s letter. Wow….wishes really do come true.

Rapper Common Demands Un-Common Treatment

SPL177767_007

What Common asks for, he gets. Apparently the rapper asked for some serious 5-star treatment at Stanton Social’s five-year anniversary bash. A partying source revealed, “When Common arrived downstairs for dinner around 10 p.m., they closed off both exits upstairs and wouldn’t let anyone down until he was settled.” Alright then, excuse us while you take your time. We’ll be stuck right where you left us…  grumbling.

Seriously.. Estelle was there too, and she didn’t ask for anything! The source explains, “Estelle snuck in around 12 a.m. She skipped the shots being passed around on the first floor and went upstairs to hang with friends.”

Lindsay Lohan Crashes An Iggy Pop Concert

SPL177616_009

Not being able to get to Cannes isn’t going to stop Lindsay Lohan from doing what she does best (relatively speaking). Iggy Pop performed in Williamsburg Wednesday night, and Lindsay crashed it. According to the New York Daily News, event organizers at the Ray-ban bash opened their VIP doors, expecting Josh Hartnett but were instead faced with LiLo and her 30-strong entourage. A source revealed, “The staff had opened a private entrance for Josh because he was going to be late. If they expected Lindsay, they certainly didn’t expect her to come with that many people. Most celebrities brought one or two guests – her crew was inappropriately large.” And it gets worse:  “It caused a huge commotion, because the VIP area was definitely not equipped to handle that amount of guests. Event staff was running around like crazy trying to accommodate her.”

And was La Lohan gracious? Uh, no. “She looked completely out of it”, the source huffed. She really need to take a page out of Kelly Osbourne’s book, who was the sweetheart to Lohan’s diva. “It took her a while to get into the VIP area because everyone was crowding it,” says the source. “But she was patient. She and her boyfriend, Luke [Worrall], didn’t have the best view once they got inside, but they craned their necks like the rest of the crowd.” And her coolness isn’t a one-off situation. Justin Long, Kate Bosworth and Alexander Skarsgard did the same. And the latter were together it seems! “Justin came solo, but Kate and Alex were very much together. Everyone was pretty packed together in VIP, but those two made sure to be next to each other the whole time.” And probably looked ridiculously hot too. But did anyone pay attention to Miz Lohan? What do you think? “It’s fair to say that the other celebs ignored Lindsay. She’s not someone who people are trying to be associated with right now.” Looks like the source had the final say!

SPL175663_004

So now that Simon Cowell is done with “American Idol” (sob!), he’s already planning his next big move which, in a way, has him returning to his roots. In 2004, Cowell, along with Sharon Osbourne and Louis Walsh, was a judge on the first series of the British talent show “The X-Factor”. The show was created through his own company, Syco, and was a massive success. He’s now bringing the show to the U.S, and the first season is scheduled to air later on in 2011 on FOX. And he’s pulling out all the stops putting together a judges panel. He’s going to be on it as well… a li’l healthy competition with his old American Idol gig!

Nick Cannon and Mariah Carey are rumored to be in the running for the judges panel The X has marked a spot for Paula Abdul too! But in order to make it happen with Cowell a second time around, she’s demanding some serious cash, claims a source, “Paula really wants to reunite with Simon on his new show next year. But she thinks he needs to either put up – or shut up!” And he need to put up a $ 3 million advance, or no cigar. The source went on to say that “the two have discussed reteaming, but Paula feels Simon needs to commit financially.”

MJ’s Cemetery Claims: Fans VS Lisa Marie Presley

SPL146958_005

Lisa Marie Presley thinks Michael Jackson’s grave site should be getting a lot more love. So much so that she posted a letter on her Myspace page saying he should be surrounded by a “sun shower.” MJ was infatuated with sunflowers, and Presley, who was married to him in the 90′s, told fans,  “I know how much he loved and appreciated being showered with gifts and flowers by his fans.” She went on further to ask fans  to send one silk sunflower each to the site so that,  “the whole area around him and in front of him  … could be filled up in no time.” Sorry Jacko fans, those regular bouquets and candles ain’t gonna cut it.

Well the Original Michael Jackson Fans of Southern California think she’s wrong, and that he’s already getting plenty of love. TMZ spoke with a rep from the group, who said, “You know what, we all know that we visit Michael once a month … so like everything else we just have to find comfort in the fact that we know the truth.” They’re saying they flood the site with gifts and flowers, and have documented their trips with pictures. So the “empty space” Presley’s talking about? No way.

SPL172366_001

Abbie Cornish and Ryan Phillippe spilt and everyone seems to be moving along quite happily. Abbie got together with Josh Hartnett, while her ex has been hitting on (and striking out with) hot young models and buying condoms galore. It’s been working for him, because Ryan was seen making out with a hot brunette throughout the Victoria’s Secret “What Is Sexy?” party in Los Angeles.

Jamie Foxx had his game on too. A witness reports, “He kissed Chanel Iman‘s hand, and showed Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Candice Swanepoel his dance moves.” Looks like everyone had some sexy time!

Kate Hudson Pissed With Cameron Diaz

SPL177459_005

The Cameron Diaz-Alex Rodriguez hook up and ensuing love-fest has someone’s panties in a twist… his ex Kate Hudson. Us Weekly’s new issue reports of a major feud between Cameron and Kate over the Yankee star. The dish is that, “An insider believes Diaz is bedding Rodriguez as a form of retaliation after Hudson hooked up with Justin Timberlake in January 2007 — just two days after the couple of four years split.”

The source also says, “Kate thinks it’s payback, pure and simple.” Apparently, they’re on to something because they’ve quoted a Cam.D pal saying,  “Cameron was actually in a serious long-term relationship with Justin. She thinks it’s a joke Kate would be mad. Kate is only upset because she hates being single.” The battle extends to them fighting for the same role with sources saying, ” Kate thinks Cameron is an aging old lady actress struggling to remain sexy and relevant.”  Meow!

And this is not the first time reports of a K.Hud feud have surfaced. Apparently Jennifer Aniston and Hudson weren’t too happy with each other, and it was all because of …Gerard Butler. Hudson allegedly hooked up with Butler, and Jen went postal. “Even though she and Gerard are no longer together, Jen feels Kate was encroaching on her territory,” a source told  the National Enquirer. You know K-Hud… this kinda sounds like karma! What goes around, comes around. Oh wait… that’s a Justin Timberlake song! Full circle, baby!

Naomi Campbell Has A New Outlook On Kabbalah

SPL178480_001She’s a supermodel. She can totally change her mind whenever she wants to, right? Naomi Campbell dissed Kabbalah and compares it to rehab, and threw in Madonna’s name in for good measure too. She scathed, ” I knew about Kabbalah before Madonna got involved. Kabbalah is not a religion, it’s a program. I don’t like to get hooked on things like that. It reminds me of A.A. but just with different words. They’ve got the same principles. We’re all looking for positivity in our lives and looking towards the light but I just believe in God.”

Now the slap-happy supermodel’s apparently changed her mind, and has been meeting up in secret with Madge’s Kabbalah mentor Eitan Yardeni. Spies report that the supermodel met Yardeni at Manhattan’s Kabbalah Center shortly before taking off to Europe with her Russian billionaire boyfriend, Vladimir Doronin. Maybe all that business with a blood diamond got her stressed out.

No Free Ride To Cannes For Lindsay Lohan

So, Lindsay Lohan’s playing a porn star in a movie. We’d reported that she’s going to portray the legendary adult-film actress Linda Lovelace in a film called Inferno. Unfortunately, the movie’s not getting her as much mileage as she was hoping for. If Lilo wants to make it to Cannes this year, she’s going to have to pay for it out of her own pocket. She’s apparently trying desperately to wrangle some moolah and swing a freebie to get there but no one seems to be coughing up the cash. “She’s been asking around, but hasn’t had any takers,” snarks a source.

Oh, and here’s the juice about the movie she’s about to star in, straight from the director Matthew Wilder himself, “It’s not something I can imagine that anybody would ever be turned on by, unless they’re really sick.” Sounds…interesting.

One of her reps told People magazine that they’ve “decided to end their professional relationship and focus on their personal relationship. Since wrapping her recent world tour, Spears has been busy in the studio working on her next album.”

The happy twosome have been dating since last summer and have been denying engagement rumors. It’s all good, the source added. “They are very happy. Things are really good with them.”  We’re rooting for you Brit!
