For months, Lady Gaga and Ke$ha have been competing to see who can don the kookiest duds, while Tila Tequila and The Situation are still locked in a battle to see who can flash the most orangey-day-glo skin while crossing the red carpet. Meanwhile, Lindsay Lohan and Amy Winehouse are trying to see who can be the first to make their liver flee their body in fear and, weirdly enough, Tom Cruise is cool again. There’s no denying it, being crazy is “in” this season! We even hear that it’s impossible to even get a table at a good restaurant in L.A. these days without dressing in a leather gimp suit, speaking Swahili, and tipping the maître d’ with bits of string. Hollywood is locked in an arms race of “crazy.”
So “crazy” is the new “black.” But while each celeb has their own go-to gimmick, Courtney Love outshines them all. As evidenced in the latest installment of Behind The Music, she is a true renaissance woman of crazy, not limiting herself to any one cheap shuck. And she’s been doing it wayyyy before it was cool. Yes, Courtney does “crazy” more, and she does “crazy” better. That’s why we love Courtney Love. Check out the salute to our favorite moments!

Everyone who’s anyone in Hollywood has their own signature red carpet move. For example, our red carpet move consists of not going to the red carpet. This is mainly because we’ve never been asked. But for celebs, their signature move is like their calling card! It’s a catch phrase for the body. You can see a signature move and immediately know who’s responsible for it. Spot a peace sign, and you know it’s attached to Miley‘s hand. That head of hair being combed by some gangly fingers? RPattz, obviously. And every time bare abs turn up on the carpet well – you don’t even have to ask.
We’ve all strutted in front of the mirror and pretended we’re at our first premiere, perfecting our signature red carpet move. (No? Just us? Oh well.) Check out these famous folks as they actually do it!
Today Leonardo DiCaprio did the unthinkable and managed to get the word “tiger” into headlines without “golf” or “hookers” appearing anywhere near it. The Oscar-nominated actor has partnered up with the World Wildlife Foundation to create “Save Tigers Now,” an awareness campaign that aims to do just that. With less than 3,200 tigers left in the wild, the endangered species is teetering on the brink of extinction.
In recognition of 2010 being the Chinese Year of the Tiger, the organization seeks not only to raise $20 million for the protection of the feline, but also to double their population by the next Year of the Tiger in 2022.
“Tigers are endangered and critical to some of the world’s most important ecosystems,” said DiCaprio to the Daily Express, “Key conservation efforts can save the tiger species from extinction, protect some of the planet’s last wild habitats, and help sustain the local communities surrounding them. By protecting this iconic species, we can save so much more.”
Leo is currently in Asia doing first-hand research on the animal and their natural habitats. While there he also plans to participate in anti-poaching patrols and meet with guards assigned to protect tigers from international traffickers. This is the latest in a long line of environmental projects he has undertaken, including “The 11th Hour” documentary in 2007, and the Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation.
Cool stuff. But then again, he is the King of the World.
Janet Jackson has been keeping a low profile as of late, but she stepped out in London yesterday with a new man and a new super short crop. The junior Jackson apparently trimmed her tresses for her role in the upcoming Tyler Perry film, For Colored Girls Who Have Considered Suicide When The Rainbow Is Enuf (try saying that ten times fast). Long title, short hair. Are you digging the new ‘do, or is this a serious “scissor malfunction?” [Photos: Getty Images, Splash News]
