Zoe Kravitz’s Awkward Movie Date With Gossip Dude Penn Badgley

It looks like the X-Men bond has been broken, as Zoe Kravitz has split with her First Class costar Michael Fassbender and moved on to Gossip Girl star, Penn Badgley. The two were seen leaving the (aptly named) Friends With Benefits party in the same cab, and more recently they were seen canoodling in a darkened movie theater watching Horrible Bosses. “He had his arm around her while they waited in line,” a source told Page Six.

But it looks like that was the wrong movie to see together, because things got a little awkward for the newly minted couple. Apparently there’s a part of the movie where Jennifer Aniston’s racy character asks, “Did you see Gossip Girl last night? I [bleeped] myself so hard [watching] that Penn Badgley guy, I broke a nail.” According to the witness, this made the real Penn more than a little uncomfortable. “The look on Penn’s face was priceless. They left the theater right after.” Looks like you might have some competition, Zoe!

Adele Says Alcohol Helps Her Write Music

For most of us, booze helps us make bad decisions. Or at best, some kind of horrible whatever-is-in-the-fridge culinary creation at 3 AM. But for Adele, booze helps her write her award winning, record breaking, multi-platinum selling music. Wow, we’ll have what she’s having! Like many great records, the 23-year old singer’s brilliant sophomore album 21 was inspired by a breakup with her boyfriend. But just recently Adele opened up about her writing technique. And it involves knockin’ some back.

“I used to have to lock myself away in my house, get pretty drunk and write a drunk diary,” she admitted to The Sun, “and that was the first time I could admit things to myself.” She says this approach made her songs more honest. “A drunk tongue is an honest one in my opinion.” But that was only the first phase of the process. “The next morning I would read it through with an awful hangover and, in the cold light of day, had to absorb my feelings about myself.” In addition to helping her make great art, she says it also helped her grow up. “I started realizing my own flaws and my disappointments and I started regretting a lot of stuff. It was quite an awakening.” Pretty intense stuff for a then-21-year-old. Who knows what she’ll have to tell us on her next album!

Your favorite singing high schoolers this side of High School Musical turned the glitz on full as they strutted the red carpet. Lea Michele went with a short ‘n’ tight (and mildly scando) black lace strapless number, while Dianna Agron ying’ed Lea’s yang with a white dress and blonde hair in a messy-chic bob. Glee gents Cory Monteith, Darren Criss and Kevin McHale suited up in dapper darks, while Chris Colfer went with an off-kilter high collared shirt and tie.

Return Of The Kanye Rant: “People Look At Me Like I’m Hitler”

After a spell of acting like a subdued elder statesman of the rap game, the Kanye West we know and love returned with another bizarre (and bigheaded) outburst that may cause you to face-palm yourself in confusion. Being anything but chill while performing at the Big Chill music festival in England, he ranted:

“I walk through the hotel and I walk down the street, and people look at me like I’m f–king insane, like I’m Hitler. One day the light will shine through and one day people will understand everything I ever did.”

The crowd booed (he also began his set a half hour late), but Air Yeezy went on to say he wished to be remembered as the Air Jordan of the music world, not Hitler.

Royce Reed Suffers A Seizure During A Softball Game

It was a scary weekend for Royce Reed, as the Basketball Wives star suffered a seizure at a charity softball game in Wilmington, Delaware. TMZ is reporting that she pulled a hamstring, and when she sat down to ice it, she passed out on the spot. Royce had no idea what had happened after regaining consciousness, and claimed it was the first time she’d ever had such an experience. EMTs were called, but she said she was feeling fine and didn’t need to go to a hospital. What a trooper! Let’s hope she got the MVP award.

She blamed the incident on the usual culprits for celebrity health woes: stress, exhaustion, heat and her diet. Luckily she seems to be pulling through like a champ. The very next day she tweeted a message to let her fans know that she was still truckin’ (and partyin’): I’m fine yall! I went out & evthing last night. I just gotta eat better & rest more. Thx 4 ur prayers/well wishes but yall kno I’m tough :-) Take it easy there, Royce!

Mark Wahlberg and Leo DiCaprio Reveal Their Man-Crushes On Taylor Lautner

It looks like Marky Mark and Leo are definitely Team Jacob!  Taylor Lautner has been making heats beat faster ever since getting his defining role as everyone’s favorite dreamy teen wolf (sorry, MTV) in the Twilight Saga. And even former teen (current adult) heart-throbs Mark Wahlberg and Leonardo DiCaprio aren’t immune to his charms! The two senior badasses made light of Taylor’s star power at the Hollywood Foreign Press Association’s annual luncheon yesterday in Los Angeles.

“I am sitting at a table with a gentleman who is better looking than you and is in better shape than me,” Marky admitted to Leo while on stage. “So, we’re both out of a job, dude. Taylor Lautner! We’re screwed. It’s over, dude. Titanic and Boogie Nights were a long time ago. I accept it. I had a good run and on to the next.” Leo nodded in agreement and the room roared with laughter. What did the object of the attention think of all this? “It’s so odd,” he told E! Online reporter Marc Malkin.  “It’s such an honor. I’m up on the stage and talking in front of people like that? The people that I looked up to my entire life? Hearing words like that from Mark and everybody it’s just really surreal.”

Do you think Taylor has what it takes to be the next Leo or Mark? Let us know in the poll below!

Nicki Minaj Slips Nip, Loses Mind During GMA Performance

Those tuning in to watch Nicki Minaj perform on Good Morning America this morning got a lil more Nicki than they bargained for. The rapper’s Malibu Barbie-Tastic outfit contained her famous donk, but she wasn’t quite so lucky on top. Yup, Nicki pulled a Janet Jackson in the middle of performing ‘Moment 4 Life”. Not that it seemed to bother her that much. She just adjusted her tank top and continued to rock her Cyndi-Lauper-on-PCP steez by gnawing on a chicken leg like a feral valley girl. Your guess is as good as ours.

Despite the five second delay, the boob-flashing incident moved too fast for ABC censors to pull the plug. Predictably, some parent’s groups are already making their displeasure known. “For the umpteenth time in recent memory a morning news show has included inappropriate content for children and families,” said Tim Winter of the Parents Television Council to TMZ. Will the “slip”-up affect her vocal role in the upcoming Ice Age 4 alongside fellow R&B star Drake? We doubt it. Check out more in the (censored) not-quite-safe-for-work gallery below. Happy Pink Friday everyone!

Ryan Reynolds Discusses His Recovery After Being Struck By A Drunk Driver

It should come as no surprise that drinking and driving no laughing matter. Just ask Ryan Reynolds. The Change-Up hunk recently opened up about his hellish ordeal after being struck by a drunk driver at the age of 19. “I was at a bar and I had a few drinks,” he told CTV in his native Canada (where the drinking age is 18). “And I thought, ‘You know what I’m going to do? I’m going to leave my car here, be responsible.’ I started to walk home and I was hit by a drunk driver.” It’s stories like this that make us question karma.

And this was no small bump, either. The impact left him in a coma and “broke every bone in my left side. I woke up three days later.” Oh my god, dude! We’re sorry for every bad things we said about The Green Lantern! But at least he had family around when he finally came to. “I remember my dad sitting there [with] a vomit tray. And I guess I had been heaving in my unconscious. And nothing says love like painting someone with three-day-old Gin Rummies. Just soaked the man head to toe in my vomit.” That’s love, Ryan.

He seems to  have recovered, but says that’s not totally the case. “Since then, I’ve been a rickety, broken mess.” He’s gotta be kidding,  because we know a decent number of people who think he’s pretty perfect. Like his old “friends” Sandra Bullock and Charlize Theron, for a start…
