Lindsay Lohan’s Mugshots As School Photos

When we were kids, our parents proudly displayed our (always heinous) school photos to track our annual transition into adulthood. But in Lindsay Lohan’s case, mugshots were a little easier to come by and a little more frequent. The actress racked up her fifth fabulous custody photo in five years yesterday. They grow up so fast! So as we mourn her lost childhood, we present Lindsay’s mugshots as 90s school photos. You’re welcome, Dina and Mike. Join us in the gallery below for the memories, the pouts, and the ever-expanding Lilo lips.

Bette Midler Wants Lady Gaga To Buy Her Old Clothes

Looks like Mama Monster might get some hand-me-downs. Bette Midler accused Lady Gaga of stealing her mermaid in a wheelchair act back in July, in what was perhaps the most surreally fabulous twitter flame war of all time. But now the oh-so-divine Miss M wants Gaga to buy her original mermaid costume, as well as other items in her wardrobe. “I think she should go for a real wheelchair and a real fishtail because these are really beautiful,” she told the Associated Press. Midler is putting her famous outfits up for auction on November 12th to raise money for her charity, The New York Restoration Project, which funds the building of public parks and recreation areas.

The auction will feature costumes spanning her entire 45-year career. While we’re sure she won’t have any trouble finding bidders, Bette is hoping for one in particular. “I’m waiting for Gaga to get in there and grab hers,” she admits. “I would be thrilled. I hope she buys at least a little bit. It would be fun. There are so many wonderful ideas and so much of it. So much of it is so funny.” Apparently the whatever wounds existed between the two have been healed long ago. “If she is interested, she can have whatever she wants because she is a very talented girl and I love her a lot.” Do we smell a wheelchair mermaid duet in the near future?

Snoop Dogg Celebrates His 40th Birthday With A Forty Cake

Snoop Dogg turns the big 4-0 today, and to mark the occasion he got a cake shaped like…a forty. The rapper celebrated at Hollywood’s Rolling Stone Lounge last night with a cake featuring a bottle of Colt 45 malt liquor made out of fondant icing. Some sparklers also adorned the top, because something had to be blazin’ on his cake. We hope he washed it down with some gin and juice. Fellow guests include hip hop luminaries like Dr. Dre and Bootsy Collins. Check it out in the gallery below!

Jessica Alba And Her Daughters Search For The Great Pumpkin

New mom Jessica Alba took her daughters to Hollywood’s famous Mr. Bone’s Pumpkin Patch yesterday to stock up on some Halloween spirit. In fact, this is Jessica’s second trip to the patch this week, taking home a whole cart full of pumpkins each time. This lady is clearly into Halloween! Or maybe she’s searching for the epic Great Pumpkin of Charlie Brown lore. The actress got a hand from 3-year old Honor Marie Cash, who looked like she was having a blast out in the field. Newborn Haven Garner Warren was confined to her baby stroller, so she was slightly less help to the pumpkin selection process. But still, we’re sure she had fun too. Check out the not-so-spooky Halloween cuteness in the gallery below!

Soulja Boy Busted For Pot Posession

Soulja Boy was arrested early this morning for possession of massive amounts of marijuana in his car. For those of you who have seen this video,  this probably comes as the least surprising news of the decade. The 21-year-old rapper was driving with four friends in Temple, Georgia, when police pulled him over at 3:15 a.m. for a routine traffic violation. But when officers peered into the side window, they spotted “a substantial amount of marijuana and cash inside the car.” Arresting officers told TMZ that the money totaled more than $70,000! Damn. But we guess that’s chump change for a dude who just bought a $55 million jet as a birthday present for himself.

Authorities also found guns in the car, but it’s unclear whether or not they were licensed. Regardless, Soulja (real name DeAndre Cortez Way) and his friends were hauled into Carrol County Jail, where they’re currently being held. Today also marks the release of his DVD, Soulja Boy: The Movie. “Today is gonna be busy and huge very historical lots of interviews to be done,” he tweeted last night before the bust. Well, you’re right about the interviews part, Soulja. Although we think it’s called “questioning”…

The investigation is still pending, but we’ll report back.

Zachary Quinto Comes Out As Homosexual

Star Trek star Zachary Quinto has publicly acknowledged his homosexuality for the first time in a New York magazine interview. Though a voice in gay rights for many years, the 34-year-old actor had previously declined to speak about his sexuality up until now. He says that it was his role in the recent Broadway re-staging of Tony Kushner’s Angels in America that helped spur his decision to come out formally and become an more active participant in the fight for LGBT equality.

The Broadway drama centers around a gay man who leaves his AIDS-afflicted boyfriend, and Quinto called the part “the most challenging thing I’ve ever done as an actor and the most rewarding.” It exhausted him mentally and made him rethink the current gay community. “As a gay man, it made me feel like there’s still so much work to be done,” he continued, “and there’s still so many things that need to be looked at and addressed.”

While great strides have been made, including the legalization of gay marriage in the State of New York, Quinto is concerned about the abuse that still gets hurled at homosexuals. He was particularly horrified by the death of young Jamey Rodemeyer, who took his own life after being bullied at school for his homosexuality. “As a gay man I look at that and say there’s a hopelessness that surrounds it,” he admits. “But as a human being I look at it and say ‘Why? Where’s this disparity coming from, and why can’t we as a culture and society dig deeper to examine that?’”

The actor spoke more about Jamey’s suicide on his website, and also offered his own video for the “It Gets Better” project. Check it out under the jump.

Lourdes Leon’s Top 15 Most Fashionable Looks

Lourdes Leon was destined to be a fashion prodigy from the start. In fact, we definitely could have made this list when she was still in diapers. The gal’s got a look that’s equal parts class and sass, with her momma Madonna’s killer smile to boot. She cruised through those awkward middle school years without missing a beat, and even started her own fashion blog to try and help the rest of us look a tiny bit as good as her. She’s collaborated with her famous ma on developing the Material Girl fashion line, and went all teen mogul on us with her own brand of makeup. And this was all before she could drive!

Lindsay Lohan Blew Off Community Service, Psych Visits, And The Dentist

Lindsay Lohan’s stare-down with the law is almost getting impressive, were it not so amazingly stupid. Despite promising that she’d keep her nose clean (*zing*) after getting released from custody in May, Lindsay has been found in double violation of her probation and now could face time in jail. Maybe even in a real jail this time, and not staying  in her house and watching DVDs, which some of us would call “the weekend.”

According to TMZ,  the actress has failed to see her court-appointed psychologist once a week, as outlined in her probation terms. Lilo claims that she was unable to attend her shrink sessions because she was working out of the country, but the court says this is no excuse. In fact, Judge Stephanie Sautner specifically forbade her from work if it would interfere with the terms of her probation.

On top of that misstep, Lindsay has also been “kicked out” of her community service gig at the Downtown Woman’s Shelter for “violating the rules several times.” Apparently she “blew off” a total of nine visits, and when she did decide to show, she’d bounce after only an hour instead of the required four. Part of her probation agreement was for her to serve 360 hours of community service by May 2012 and so far she’s done twenty-on, which the judge hilariously calls this “unimpressive.” Lindsay’s now reportedly been moved to a new community service program at the Red Cross. But we should go easy on Lindsay lately, because she’s apparently very busy. From the looks of Lindsay’s brown teeth, she hasn’t even had time to get to the dentist in a while, either.
