How Many Muppets Gave Their Lives To Make Rihanna’s Top?

We were baffled to come in this morning to find pictures of Lady Gaga looking (gasp) shockingly normal (and hot) as she caught some waves in Mexico. But thank god Rihanna stepped up to the bizarro fashion plate and knocked a homer way out of WTF Park. Riri showed up to the London launch of her new scent ‘Reb’l Fleur’ today wearing what appears to be a top made of shaggy Muppet fur. What would (platonic) Muppet lover Jason Segel say!? Are you diggin the (errr…) risky look, or do you think she should throw it in Oscar’s trashcan? Get a closer look in the gallery below!

Josh Groban Gets A Guest Spot On The Office

The producers of The Office are really pulling out all the stops to try and fill the vacuum left by Steve Carell. Guest stars are like CPR for elderly sitcoms, and the end of last season was loaded to the brim with big names, including Will Ferrell, Kathy Bates, Ricky Gervais, Will Arnet, Ray Romano, and more. Plus James Spader has been tapped for a recurring role on the show, but as Dunder Mifflin’s new CEO and not Carrel’s replacement, as previously assumed. And it looks like the parade of guest stars is about to continue with Josh Groban.

The pop-opera crossover heartthrob (and mom favorite) will appear as the brother of Ed Helm‘s character, Andy Bernard. Andy is a passionate a capella singer, so we have our fingers crossed for a hilarious in-office duet! Groban has been flexing his comedy muscles lately, playing  a small but memorable role as Emma Stone’s douchey boyfriend in this summer’s Crazy Stupid Love. The flick starred none other than Steve Carell, so who knows..maybe that’s how Josh got the Office job in the first place. We’re excited by all of these famous faces showing up around Dunder Mifflin’s Scranton branch, but we just hope the show go the Love Boat route and drive the guest stars into the ground.

Kirsten Dunst Wants You To Know That She Has Big Boobs

After a period out of the limelight, Kirsten Dunst is back to the big leagues with her award winning performance in Melancholia. But enough about acting and films and all that stuff. Kirsten recently sat down with Elle magazine and reminded us all that she has big boobs. You know, in case we forgot while she was away. And she also wants you to know that she has no body issues whatsoever, you guys. Zero. Do it up, girl!

Kiki strips down for some nude scenes in Melancholia, but apparently she didn’t stress or obsess over it one bit. “I didn’t work out beforehand, it was all very natural.” In fact, she seems to love her body more than we’ll ever love our first-born. “I don’t have any real body issues. I never really overeat, I shed weight in the summer, put it on in the winter.” She’s even embraced her imperfections, including ones we’re pretty sure don’t exist. “I love my snaggle fangs,” she says. “They give me character and character is sexy.” Does she have snaggle fangs? Is that a thing?

And, of course, here’s your helpful boob reminder. “Yes, I do have big boobs. People don’t realize because I cover up a lot, but they are there. Big boobs.” If you’ve ever seen the Spiderman movies, we’re pretty sure you realized. There’s been much written about Kirsten’s battles with depression, so it’s good to see that she seems so much happier! Keep it up, lady.

Kim Kardashian Uninvites 50 Wedding Guests To Fit Camera Crew

Life ain’t always easy for a bride-to-be. Just ask Kim Kardashian, who now has the awkward task of uninviting 50 guests from her wedding to Kris Humphries. But it’s nothing personal, you guys! It just looks like there isn’t enough room for all of her friends and the film crew for her four-hour reality show special. So rather than cut down on camera angles, some of Kim’s peeps are getting the boot. Can we get a sad trombone?

The happy Kouple are reportedly getting married at the Sotto Il Monte mansion in Montecito, Califorina. But according to sources, the local fire marshal wasn’t happy when he learned that a massive production crew and camera equipment would also be roaming the 10.9 acre estate. After much back and forth, the marshal demanded that Kim trim her list. With just two days to go before the big day, that’s probably gonna piss some people off. But hey, at least they can watch the blessed union in TV, right?

Despite the guest list trauma, Kim and her Klan looked radiant last night at the launch of their Kardashian Kollection clothes line in Los Angeles. Check out more in the gallery below!

Muppets Table Read Moved Jason Segel To Tears

It’s not every day that a talking piece of felt can make a grown man weep. But that’s exactly what happened to at the first table reading for the upcoming Muppets revival. The film was a labor of love for its writer and star, Jason Segel, a massive lifelong Muppet fan. And hearing Kermit the Frog speak the words he’d written got Jason all soaky around the eyes. “We did a table reading, and they’d brought the puppets for the first time,” he explained to HitFix.com.  “We’re all just sitting at the table, and all of a sudden they brought out Kermit and he said the first line that I had written.” And then it got real for the How I Met Your Mother actor. “I just lost my sh-t a little bit. I started crying at the table read and I had to awkwardly ask them to stop filming. It was emotional. He’s been my favorite since I was a little kid.”

Segel spent four years writing his script for the Muppets reboot, and recently spoke to Collider about the emotional collection he sees between kids and the creatures. “I wish you guys were over there so you could see how a kid reacts to those puppets,” he gushed. “It’s one of the most beautiful things you’ve ever seen. The puppeteer just instantly disappears. You can see the guy standing there with a puppet on his hand and he’s talking, and the kid is looking directly at the puppet.” Jason still gets floored by the Muppet Magic.  “Every time it happens it reminds me of why I wanted to do the movie. It’s a truly beautiful thing.”

Lindsay Lohan Kinda-Sorta-Almost Surfs


We can’t actually say that these are pics of Lindsay Lohan surfing, because she really only gets up on one knee. But still, that’s a hell of a lot closer than we’ll ever get to hangin’ ten, so we’ll give her some serious props. The stunt is actually for a photoshoot, but she fills out a wetsuit nicely as she tackles the waves on the beaches of Malibu. It’s definitely a change of direction from Lilo’s gruesome Tyler Sheild’s shoot that hit the streets yesterday. Check out more of Lindsay’s surfin’ safari in the gallery below!

11-Year-Old Mayor Re-Names Main Street After Justin Bieber

If you were eleven and got to be mayor of your town, what you would do? Or, in the words of Ferris Bueller, what wouldn’t you do? Young Caroline Gonzalez got to live out this fantasy, and her first act in office was to rename Main Street “Justin Bieber Way”. OK, she isn’t actually mayor for real. The 6th grader got to act as mayor-for-a-day in her hometown of Forney after winning a contest designed to get kids interested in local government. If unlimited power won’t get kids interested in public office, nothing will! And Caroline used her new found authority to pay tribute to her idol, The Biebs.

“I really like Justin Bieber,” she told E! News. “”I like his music and I like him. And I thought, why not have a street in my hometown named after my favorite singer?” You’re the boss, Caroline! For a day at least. Sadly, the street reverted back to it’s original name after her 24 hour term was up, and the new Bieber-fied street sign was taken down. Lame. But the ex-mayor-for-a-day has no hard feelings for the local officials. “I thought it was pretty cool, and if Justin Bieber was actually here I’d probably faint.” The real mayor, Darren Rozzell made sure to add that Justin is more than welcome in their town. ““If Justin Bieber sees this, and wants to come to Forney, he’s got an open invitation.” Do we smell a Justin Beiber concert in Forney in the near future?

Abercrombie Offers The Situation Money To Not Wear Their Clothes

Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino isn’t known so much for wearing clothes as he is for yanking them off in public settings to reveal his abs. Consider the fact that he occasionally has star shapes buzzed into his hair, and it’s no surprise that clothing companies aren’t lining up to make him the latest style icon. But Abercrombie and Fitch have gone one step further: they have offered to pay the Jersey Shore star to NOT wear their clothes! The preppie brand has offered The Sitch a “substantial financial payout,” to not be seen in public donning their duds. That’s harsh, guys!

Last year the clothing brand was all about reality star, even selling a with the phrase “The Fitchuation” emblazoned across it. But now it looks like relations between the pairing have soured. Abercrombie issued a statement yesterday saying, “We believe this association is contrary to the aspirational nature of our brand, and may be distressing to many of our fans.” This is kinda true, we do get somewhat distressed by the sight of The Situation. But still! They continued by saying that they were “deeply concerned that Mr. Sorrentino’s association with our brand could cause significant damage to our image.” And thus, the brand of clothes favored by the cool kids in high school are excluding peeps once again. Way to keep up the image, guys. Don’t take the deal, Mike!

Captain America Can’t Get A Cab

Ask any New Yorker: empty cabs are everywhere you turn…until the moment you need one. And from the looks of it, even Captain America seems to be having a little trouble getting a ride. Chris Evans has been crime-fightin’ up a storm on the set of The Avengers, the hotly anticipated sequel to this summer’s blockbuster, The First Avenger. Despite the New York cop cruisers and cabs, the producers actually recreated the NYC street scene in Cleveland, Ohio. They even built a full scale facade of Grand Central Station! Movie magic! But instead of keeping it around for us all to admire, the film makers blew it up for the movie. Damnit, you guys! That’s what CGI’s for! The Avengers better rule…and from the look of the pictures in the gallery below, we bet it will. Check it out! Will Captain America save New York? And more importantly, will he get a cab? We can’t wait to find out next summer!

The Stars Are Out At Adele’s LA Concert

Adele has sold approximately ninety zillion (give or take) copies of her instant classic 21 this year, so it’s no surprise that she’s playing to sold out venues all over the world. Some of her more famous fans were spotted attending her concert at the Greek Theater in Los Angeles last night! Dianna Agron looked stunning and see-throughy in a mildly scando sheer top, while Glee-mate Amber Riley took a more wrapped up approach in a colorful flowery blouse. Some stars made a romantic evening out of it, as Jessica Simpson showed up with fiance Eric Johnson on her arm, and America Ferrera brought along her hubby, Mr. America Ferrera (sorry, we mean Ryan Piers William). Fellow world-shaking Brit Robert Pattinson was rumored to have attended, but sadly gave the paps the slip. But many other celebs didn’t! Check out the gallery below to see what other stars came out to groove to Adele.
