It looks like Nicole Richie had herself a late birthday party, and this one was bikini themed! The socialite spent this weekend south of the border in Los Cabos, Mexico, where some famous friends joined her poolside. Ashlee Simpson showed up in a tiny-weeny black polka-dot bikini (had to), while Sam Ronson went with a more pink and blue tie-dye style. Ashlee’s sister Jessica Simpson also attended, but she apparently didn’t get the memo and forgot her two-piece. *Sigh* We’ll let it slide this time, Jessica. But do it again and you’re off the guest list. Check out more in the gallery below!

Although only seventeen, Justin Bieber has just raised the bar for date nights, and revolutionized the concept of “dinner and a movie” forever. The teen singer rented out all of L.A.’s Staples Center on Friday night to watch Titanic with his lady love, Selena Gomez. Somewhere, James Cameron is shedding a single tear. Friends of the Biebs told TMZ that he got the idea after watching Mr. Deeds, in which Adam Sandler has a surprise date with Winona Ryder at an empty Madison Square Garden. But while Sandler only plays a romantic millionaire in the movie, Bieber is the real deal and brought the fantasy to life…with a few touches of his own thrown in.
The couple began their evening by attending a Demi Lovato concert at the nearby Nokia Theater. Once the show ended, Justin reportedly told Selena to follow him through the underground tunnel that connects the theater to the massive Staples Center. They arrived to find themselves alone in the 20,000 seat arena, with the lights dimmed and a candle-lit table for two set on the court. The love birds were served a dinner of steak and pasta catered by the venue’s exclusive Lexus Club, and when they finished eating Titanic started playing on the Jumbotron.
You hear that? That’s the sound of a million girls swooning, and a million guys screaming in frustration. The best part is that Justin didn’t even have to pay to use the arena. That’s what happens when your concerts fill the place three times in a row. We’ve gotta hand it to the kid, he’s got game. Leo may be king of the world, but Biebs is king of the date nights. Well played.

Some boots are made for walkin’, but these boots are made for pumpin’ gas! Vanessa Hudgens caused a scene at an LA service station yesterday when she showed up wearing sexy short-shorts and thigh-high badass buckled boots. Why the extra sassy attire? Maybe she’s about to head over to new beau Austin Butler‘s place. The two have been spotted canoodling over milkshakes, like the two Disney stars they are at heart. Careful V-Hudge,Ã‚Â milkshake-sharing may lead to harder stuff…like cotton candy-sharing, or even bowling dates. That’s how people get pregnant, Vanessa! Check out more in the gallery below short short, big boot hotness in the gallery below!
Here at The FAB Life, they don’t come much bigger than one of the original fabs, Paul McCartney! The legend added a new notch to his musical resume last night with the New York City premiere of his ballet composition, Ocean’s Kingdom. It was certainly a family affair, as Paul was joined in Lincoln Center by his fashionista daughter Stella, musician son James, and rumored fiancee Nancy Shevell. But even more stars turned out by the galaxy-load to watch the unveiling of the work for themselves. Sarah Jessica Parker turned up in what appeared to be a lace tablecloth, while the lovely Liv Tyler shown in a see-through black gown. A very trim Alec Baldwin kept things classy in a tux, while Jon Bon Jovi and Little Stevie Van Zandt kept the rock ‘n’ roll flag flying high. And Mickey Dolenz of the Monkees made an appearance to up the WTF factor. He’s had an opening in his calender since 1969.
On the way to the theater, the-still-pretty-cute Beatle admitted to feeling “quietly confident and nervous” about how his work would go down with the crowd of famous faces. “I’d seen the great traditional ballets like Swan Lake and The Nutcracker, but I had a very limited knowledge of ballet,” he told the Press Association. “Since this project I’ve obviously started to take notice.” But don’t except him to pirouette for us anytime soon. “I went to see Giselle recently in London and was bowled over by the sheer athleticism of the dancers,” he said. “The next day I tried to do one of the steps and failed dismally.” Although our idolization of him is so intense, we’d gladly pay big bucks for a show called Paul McCartney Fails At Dancing For Two Hours. Plus it would remind us of our prom. Check out more from last night in the gallery below!

Put down the lawsuit, Tom Cruise, we’re not insulting your lovely wife Katie Holmes. We’re just talking about her latest acting role! Katie is celebrating Halloween this year with a guest spot on How I Met Your Mother, where she will play the mysterious “Slutty Pumpkin.” The woman clad in a scandalous jack-o-lantern outfit stole Ted’s heart at a Halloween party years ago, and he’s been trying to track her down ever since. But lucky for him, it looks like this is the year that he gets reunited with his beloved Slutty Pumpkin. It’s a Halloween miracle! “Katie is a lovely and talented actress,” show creator Craig Thomas told NY Magazine, “which is why we’ve saved for her perhaps the most classily named character in our show’s history.” We can’t wait til the episode airs when Halloween gets nearer.
And speaking of scary things, Katie’s daughter Suri Cruise reported to her first day of
programming school last week. The five-year-old will be attending the New Village Leadership Academy, a Scientology-based school which uses L. Ron Hubbard’s “study technology” educational model. It’s apparently a free form kind of place, where students work at their own pace to complete tasks and teachers give individual attention to each child. Doesn’t sound bad, right? But god forbid if the kid yawns. Apparently ol’ L. Ron believed that yawning was a sign that a child misunderstood the concept. So load up on expresso, kids! And attending students are also encouraged to sculpt the concepts they’ve learned about in clay. According to L. Ron, children need access to “mass” or else they start to feel “sort of spinny” and “squashed.” If it were us, we’d sculpt ourselves a shiv and get the hell out of there. No, put that lawsuit back DOWN Tom Cruise! We’re just kidding!

While not looking his best at the Emmys over the weekend, these pics taken on the set of Mad Men yesterday show Jon Hamm looking decidedly less fugs. Hamm was his usual chiseled and handsome self while hanging out between takes, although we have to admit he seems a little annoyed. Maybe he’s wondering why there’s no one else as hot as him around. Or maybe the millionth person just asked him what he thinks about Pan Am. Co-stars John Slattery and Vincent Kartheiser were also on hand to round out everyone’s favorite ad-firm. It’s so good to see everyone back after well over a year between seasons. We can’t wait til March 12th! Until then, check out the gallery below to get your 60s hunk fix.

The devastating suicide of a boy in upstate New York has prompted Lady Gaga to meet with President Obama for a discussion on anti-bullying legislation. 14-year-old Jamey Rodemeyer, a high school student from Buffalo, took his life on Sunday after being tormented by classmates for his homosexuality. The tragedy has the singer up in arms, calling on support from her fans and the president for young people in Jamey’s situation. “Bullying must become be illegal. It is a hate crime,” she tweeted yesterday. “I am meeting with our President. I will not stop fighting. This must end. Our generation has the power to end it. Trend it #MakeALawForJamey.”
Though no stranger to gay rights, this case has special significance to Mother Monster. Several months back, Jamey posted his own “It Gets Better” support video on Youtube, in which he cited Lady Gaga as a role model and pillar of strength. “She lets me know that I was born this way,” he said at the clip’s conclusion. “Just love yourself and you’re set. And I promise you, it’ll get better.” But the bullying didn’t cease for Jamey. “No one in my school cares about preventing suicide,” Jamey posted to his Tumblr just a few weeks before his death. “I always say how bullied I am, but no one listens. … What do I have to do so people will listen to me?”
The unbelievably tragic tale has Gaga, and millions of others, furious and heartbroken. “The past days I’ve spent reflecting, crying, and yelling,” she wrote. “I have so much anger. It is hard to feel love when cruelty takes someones life.” She hopes that the creation of a law making bullying a hate crime will save others from the agonizing abuse Jamey suffered. No official date for the presidential meeting has been set as of yet, but we’ll let you know as soon as we hear.

Despite his heartbreaker reputation, getting romantically involved with George Clooney is a risk most women would be more than willing to take. But Georges’s ex Elizabeth Daily is warning his new belle Stacy Kiebler against wanting anything longterm. “I wouldn’t have any expectation of anything serious,” she told Star Magazine. “Girls think they can tame him, but it will never happen. They’re wasting their time.” Case in point, Elisabetta Canalis, who he dumped in June allegedly when she wouldn’t drop the marriage topic. Daily dated Clooney back in 1993, after his divorce with first (and only) wife Talia Balsam. At the time Daily was just beginning her work as the voice of Tommy Pickles on the Nickelodeon classic, Rugrats.
But sadly the love between man and cartoon was not to be. “Even then he was adamant that he wouldn’t get married again,” she admits. So let us get this straight: George Clooney broke Tommy Pickles’ heart!? This definitely puts him at the top of our VH1 Top 40 S–t List. Don’t feel too bad for old Liz, though. She currently has two daughters with Rick Salomon of Paris Hilton sex-tape fame. Tommy Pickles and…Rick Salomon? Excuse us while our mind explodes into an old-school Nickelodeon logo splat.

It’s a widely reported fact that Rihanna has a serious phobia of pants. OK, not really. But you’d think so, if you took a look at nearly every outfit she’s ever worn. Whenever Ri-Ri has a chance to lose the pants, she takes it! Then again so would we, if we had legs like hers. But sadly we don’t, and people tend to look at us funny when we wear our unitard with the thigh-high cut-outs to the office. And our girlfriend is getting really sick of us asking to borrow her multi-colored mosaic bikini bottoms for formal occasions. The world can be so cruel. Luckily for Rihanna, she doesn’t have that problem. So to get you going on this Thursday morning, here’s twenty-five pictures of Rihanna sans pants. Enjoy!
When she wasn’t out at a strip club with Kieran Culkan or doggedly tracking down the dreaded Hollywood Phone Hackers, Scarlett Johansson found time to party through the night with none other than Justin Timberlake. The two have been friendly since 2007, when the actress appeared in the music video for JT’s “What Goes Around Come Around.” But Scarlett was dating future husband Ryan Reynolds at the time, and Justin was wrapped up tight with Jessica Biel. Now that their famous former flames are out of the picture, sparks between them were able to fly freely.
The duo apparently spent last Wednesday night “hardcore flirting” at New York’s trendy 10ak club. “Other guys were trying to talk with Scarlett,” a fellow clubber told US Magazine, “but she was only focused on Justin.” Although to be fair, most “other guys” aren’t Justin Freakin’ Timberlake. The two ended up closing the joint, not leaving until the break of dawn. After a pizza dinner/breakfast, ScarJo reportedly invited the singer back to her pimp midtown apartment. “He wasn’t even lowkey,” a witness noted of Timberlake’s arrival. He even greeted the doorman and introduced himself as “Justin.” What a gentleman. Although publicists for both sides deny the sunrise rendez-vous took place, insiders say that chemistry between the two is common knowledge. “They’ve hooked up several times over the years,” says a friend. Maybe Justin was the one those pics were meant for…
