Where In The World Is Cody Lohan?

SPL137322_006

The Lohan family is famous for dragging their kids into the spotlight (as evidenced on the show Living Lohan and also everything else they’ve ever done), so there’s something that’s been concerning us lately. Where the hell is their youngest child Cody? Dina and Ali Lohan have been in California visiting Lindsay in rehab, papa Michael is busy retooling (haha, tooling) his song for Lindsay, and eldest son Michael, Jr. is 22 and old enough to be living on his own, so we’re not worried about him. It’s one thing if they have, for once, been sheltering Cody from the media and actually using good judgment with regard to his upbringing, but that’s just so unlike them.

The picture above, of Cody attending school on Long Island in November 2009 is the most recent one we could find. And if we are to believe that this is Cody’s MySpace page, at least we have evidence that he’s alive and well (and communicating with Ali and Dina solely through the internet – the comments section on the site are priceless). So is Cody making a concerted effort to avoid the spotlight? Does he just not want to go on rehab runs to visit Lindsay? Or is he hitching a ride home on the Long Island Expressway as we speak because someone forgot him at the airport? We may never know.

Katy Perry Chats about Lucifer, Disses Lady Gaga in Rolling Stone

Katy Perry is a busty walking contradiction once again in her new interview with Rolling Stone this month, as she discusses her fame, her hubs-to-be Russell Brand and most notably, her surprisingly conservative critiques of Lady Gaga’s sex-and-religion-themed Alejandro video. Perry attempts to explain her tweeted criticism, saying “I think when you put sex and spirituality in the same bottle and shake it up, bad things happen.” Hmm, we wonder if people in glass bikinis should really be throwing sexy stones, as it were.

While we certainly respect a person’s right to be spiritual, when most people ask, “what would Jesus do?” the answer is typically not, “lay butt-naked on a cotton candy cloud” or “dance around with a sentient gummy bear with his jugs out.”  Continues Perry, “Yes, I said I kissed a girl. But I didn’t say I kissed a girl while f-ing a crucifix.”

Don’t give Gaga any more (fabulous) ideas! In addition to promoting her new album Teenage Dream, due out later this month, Perry delved further into her own strict religious upbringing, saying “I wasn’t ever able to say I was ‘lucky,’ because my mother would rather us say that we were ‘blessed,’ and she also didn’t like that ‘lucky’ sounded like ‘Lucifer’.”

Wow, if her mom can’t listen to the word “lucky,” how demonic must “we freak in my jeep” sound to her? It’s got to be embarrassing when your own mom starts burning your albums…

The Last Action Heroes

A bunch of actors got together last night to watch a movie they shot for the express purpose of reliving their former glory and to see if they could identify their plastic surgery scars on the big screen. Right??

Cheap aging jokes aside, we’re actually super excited for The Expendables because we l.o.v.e. 80′s action movies, and this movie features almost every action star from that time. Even Arnold Schwarzenegger took time out from governing California to appear in the film, though he didn’t walk the red carpet.

The film was written and directed by Sylvester Stallone (who also wrote Rocky, so the guy knows what he’s doing), and also stars Bruce Willis, Mickey Rourke, Dolph Lundgren and Stone Cold Steve Austin, just to name a few (Dear God, we don’t ask you for much, but please let Carl Weathers make an uncredited cameo). If nothing else, at least we know that this bunch of actors knows how to clean up for a movie premiere, the whole lot of them look dapper.

Hello Gorgeous! Jennifer Aniston Dresses As Streisand

hbz-jennifer-aniston-streisand-0910-01-de-14599383

Jennifer Aniston and Barbra Streisand are both polarizing stars in their own way. Either you love them for their work and their signature senses of style, or you hate them because you are on Team Angelina, a hardcore Republican, or just averse to showtunes and Friends. So these shots of Aniston dressed as Babs in this month’s Harper’s Bazaar will thrill you or make you want to claw your eyes out. (We are thrilled – they’re delightfully campy and fabulous, and deep down we are really just a gay man at heart so we love that. You can view all the photo’s on the Harper’s site.)

Aniston is a longtime admirer of Streisand’s and says of the photos “I have no idea what people are going to think about it. Everybody has an opinion; it’s just what people love to have. But that’s okay. Art is so subjective, and people can react however they want. Barbra inspires me because there isn’t anything she hasn’t done that she wanted to do, especially as a female in the time when her generation was prime. She’s a true renaissance woman.” Personally, we’re happy to see Jen do an interview where no reference is made to her relationship status and she’s not exposing side boob.

Moms On Pop Talk Twilight, Rob’s Hair And Kristen’s Attitude

Well, we did it: we talked to moms about Twilight. Real moms. Amazingly, they had ALL seen the movies. Some had even read the books! Did we mention Kathy, Candace and Kadie are our soul-mom-mates? For reals.

Because they’re moms, they had a few things to say about the usual Twi-spects: Robert Pattinson‘s hair, Kristen Stewart‘s smirk and the, uh, enthusiastic fans. Check out their opinions in our video and talk back to our pop culture savvy moms in the comments below. But remember – no cursing! These are moms, after all.

Jennifer Hudson With A Shaved Head: Hot Or Not?

It’s some kind of Universal Truth that people obsess about female celebrities who shave their heads. Remember how Cassie’s curiously half shaved head prompted a major debate on Twitter and a wisecrack from Fabolous about Edward Scissorhands? So it makes perfect sense that Jennifer Hudson‘s InStyle cover story, about her fabulous life and transformation from a “16 to a svelte size 6,” is being eclipsed by her comment that she’s thinking about shaving her head to show off her sexy cheekbone structure.

Yes, she’s only “thinking” about it. But now that she’s teased her fans about making a date with hair clippers, she almost has to go through with it. So allow us to jump the gun and get this debate started early. Jennifer Hudson with a shaved head: Hot or not?

Full disclosure: the above pic is actually a hybrid of Jennifer Hudson’s face with Solange‘s shaved head. If and when the real thing appears, you’ll see it here!

Attack Of The Colognes

There’s been a void in our lives up till now, but it’s finally going to be filled. That’s because we just learned that Khloé Kardashian and Lamar Odom are creating a unisex fragrance that will be released around Valentine’s day next year. Finally, the delicate scent of attention-seeking desperation mixed with the ever-so-subtle aroma of the Staples Center locker room will be ours.

The scent is reportedly going to be called Unbreakable, we assume as a nod to that great M. Night Shyamalan film that touched so many lives. The news broke last night when Khlomar attended the Casio Rock The World event and Odom let it slip. And then Khloé tweeted about his spilling the beans. And then we’re sure a camera crew caught her tweeting about his spilling the beans. And then a reporter was there to write it all down and publish it on the internet. Such is the Kardashian way.

Channing Tatum Is Growing Some Unfortunate Facial Hair

Pleaseohplease let this facial hair be for a role. This goatee on Channing Tatum is not good. Goatees just say “1990s” to us because they were all the rage when we were in high school and every guy was trying to forcibly grow one to look like Chris Cornell or Layne Staley or really anyone else featured on the Singles soundtrack. And now they’re coming back – Jon Stewart showed up with one on The Daily Show, Nicolas Cage has a creepy one, and now this. Guys, please. Grow a full-on beard or just shave it all off. Anything in between makes you look creepy.
