We hate to be all “Simpsons did it!” about two pop stars who switch up their look every 72 hours. Seriously, Katy Perry and Lady Gaga must have a think tank of designers and mathematicians working around the clock just to avoid wearing the same thing twice, let alone to avoid looking like one another. That being said, Katy Perry’s mod new Vogue Italia spread, shot by photographer Francesco Carrozini, is ranking pretty high on our Mother Monster meter. Blond micro bobs? Stylized cat eye make-up? Crawling around in clothes that cost more than a normal person’s rent? It’s hard not to read Katy’s photos as more than a little Gaga-esque. Plus, wasn’t it Lady Gaga who predicted mint would be a big color this year?
Don’t get us wrong; Katy looks amazing in every shoot. We just like the idea of Lady Gaga busting out Katy’s recent popcorn skirt in retaliation. Or…did Gaga already wear a popcorn dress? Has anyone taken a photo of these two ladies standing next to one another? Either way, take a look at our gallery of these eerily familiar “Lady Perry” looks and tell us if we’re crazy to see the similarities. We’re not crazy, are we? Not about this, right?

Ke$ha, you’ve won again. You always do. Though never with a disturbing orifice tattoo before. “New tattoo!” the singer proclaimed on Instagram, displaying both her new “Suck It!” inner lip tattoo and what appears to be a gold toof. While we need some time to wrap our heads around why and to what purpose Ke$ha would get the inside of her mouth inked (Is it a command? To whom? Is it a reminder? It’s a reminder, isn’t it?), we only needed to see the photo for a millisecond to crown her queen of the bad celebrity tattoos, joining the likes of Gucci Mane‘s ice cream cone face ink and Hayden Panettiere‘s misspelled torso tattoo.
Don’t feel bad, every other famous with an awful tattoo! We probably just don’t know about your mouth art yet. Let us know, please; it’s what Instagram is for. In the meantime, everyone else can take a gander at our worst celebrity tattoo gallery. With Ke$ha at the lead, it looks like ya’ll need to start upping your bad tattoo game…

Twice as many babies! All the babies! Well, maybe not all of them, but today’s news definitely has more than we’d expected. Probably feeling the exact same way (or so we’d assume) is True Blood stars Anna Paquin and Stephen Moyer, who, two months after announcing their pregnancy, revealed that they’re expecting twins this fall. Also doubling up on baby news is Kings of Leon: drummer Nathan Followill, piggybacking on the arrival of brother and bandmate Caleb‘s brand-new daughter Dixie Pearl last week, announced his wife Jessie Baylin‘s pregnancy on Twitter. “I’m beyond excited/anxious. Life is beautiful,” Nathan tweeted ecstatically.
And since double babies seems to be a theme today (just as it should be a theme everyday), look at Matthew McConaughey‘s kids. Look at them. Scurrying around mom Camila Alves McConaughey‘s legs like little ducklings, Lexi and Vida McConaughey walked to their home in Tribeca today. It’s probably too much to hope that the McConaugheys could lead the Kings of Leon kids in some kind of adorable toddler bongo circle, but we refuse to give up hope. Anything’s possible…in our dreams! Everyone else dreams about celebrity baby bands, right? Alright, alright.

We have been dedicating so much of our erotic energy (approximately 87%) to the upcoming release of Magic Mike, we haven’t been paying adequate attention to all the non-Tatum-related hotness out there on the internet. Luckily after Justin Theroux’s insane 8-pack slammed us in the face over at Us Weekly this afternoon, the Hemsworth brothers gently reminded us to get our heads back in the game. To wit, have you seen Chris Hemsworth‘s smoking GQ photo shoot? Good. Lawd. “[My body image has] helped me get a job, sure. But you hope it’s not the only thing that helped,” the Snow White and The Huntsman actor laughed in his interview. Right, there’s also Chris’s hair. Haha, just kidding. There’s also his body.
Not to be out-hunked (an offense no hottie can publicly tolerate), Deadline posted the first photos of Liam Hemsworth and Dwayne Johnson in Empire State. The movie is allegedly about “the true story of two pals in the 1980s who stole all the money stored at an armored car company,” but as far as we can tell the photos are about Miley Cyrus laughing all the way to the bank. The gorgeous fiance bank. We’re going to get a loan from that bank if it kills us.
As amused as we are by the fact that some people were shocked when Australian gold medal winner Stephanie Rice posted an Instagram of herself looking super hot in a bikini (given to her by a designer for her birthday), we are even more tickled by the champion swimmer’s responses to people on Twitter.
“Would like to thank News Ltd for the publicity. For another chance to see me in ‘racy’ swimwear tune into the Olympics on Fox Sports,” the 24-year-old quipped on Monday. And when Australian radio and TV host Jason “Labby” Hawkins posted a photo of himself in a pair of trunks, Rice used the opportunity to poke fun at her own photography skills: “@labby_onair the flash needs to be more over ur face, obvi didn’t study the pic well enough.”
We’d like to take this opportunity to show the world what real racy photos of the Olympian look like. The girl won three golds in Beijing and currently holds the world record in 400m individual medley, so she kinda earned this body, wouldn’t you say?

We’re getting really excited for the summer Olympics around here, guys. And today’s number one reason? Ryan Lochte. Today, Lochte qualified fastest in the 200-meter freestyle prelims at 1:48:14. He’s the world champion in the event, FYI, after beating Michael Phelps for the title last year in Shanghai. Lochte also beat Phelps in their first final at the Olympic trials on Monday when he won the 400 individual medley on Monday. You know how else the gold-medalist is beating Phelps? In the eye candy department.
Lochte, 27, is from Daytona Beach, Florida and majored in sculpting his abs and perfecting his tan — er, we mean sports management, at the University of Florida. He came home from Beijing in 2008 with three gold medals, two silver and one bronze. And in 2009, he managed to become the first swimmer to set a world record since the ban on performance enhancing suits. So he’s got more than just fantastic bone structure and a perfectly chiseled torso.
Since the championships, he’s been training for the Olympics with Coach DeLancey who praised Lochte in Men’s Health in its July/August issue: “I’ve worked with some tough athletes. There’s none tougher than Ryan. He’s not afraid to throw up.” Ew. But we totally admire his need to achieve!
“Pain, tolerance, endurance — when it comes down to that point, there’s always something left,” Lochte says. “You just have to find it.”
We’ll leave the pain and vomiting to Ryan. We’re all about pleasure here, which you will find as you check out these 20 drool-worthy photos:
All eyes were on John Travolta and Kelly Preston at Monday’s premiere of Savages in Los Angeles, but not just for the reasons you’d think. Sure it was their first public appearance as a couple since the latest round of massage lawsuits against the actor, but Travolta and his wife of 21 years, seemed to want to change the story entirely by giving us a big PDA show.
The latest allegations against him seem to have taken curiosity about Travolta’s sex life to new levels. Here’s a little recap of the scandals that have followed the actor since May: Two unnamed masseurs charged him with sexual harassment and battery. Though these two men have since asked to dismiss their cases after holes became apparent in their claims, both have hired attorney Gloria Allred. And now other accusers have come forth, including Fabian Zanzi, a Royal Caribbean cruise steward who also contends Travolta asked and received an inappropriate neck message from him. Robert Randolph, the author of You’ll Never Spa in This Town Again is also suing Travolta for supposedly trying to discredit him as an author. Randolph argues that Travolta and his lawyer, Marty Singer, slandered him in attempts to undercut his book’s claims that Travolta was a gay spa frequenter who hooked up with other male spa visitors.
So, yeah, maybe it’s a good idea for Travolta to stay closer to Preston and away from cozy spa robes.

Lindsay Lohan, we don’t know what to say at this point. Do you not have friends? Or an agent who helps you make decisions? Are you just around Terry Richardson so much that he can make it seem like a good idea to pose with a gun in your mouth? And you had to do it now, when you’re shooting Liz & Dick and haven’t yet been charged for slamming your Porsche into the back of that semi. You couldn’t just let things be sort of good for a while? No, you just had to make us picture Elizabeth Taylor with a gun to her head. Pull it together, Lohan!
Uncle Terry has already taken down the photos, which he had posted to Terry’s Diary, but since that’s not how Tumblr works, Lindsay’s gun photos are now a permanent part of the internet. Now, we know that Lilo has posed for scandalous photos before; remember those “blood soaked” Tyler Shields pics? Call us prudes, but having a gun pointed at her skull just makes this so much worse. Are you afraid of success, Lindsay? Is that it? We never thought we’d say it, but this whole thing makes us nostalgic for all your Terry Richardson nip slip photos, girl. A nip slip never hurt anyone!

Sometimes our jobs are very tough around here. We’re a little more than halfway through 2012, and as we very studiously looking back at all the year’s most newsworthy and RT-ready Twitpic’d, Instagram’d and Facebooked photos, we started to feel a little nostalgic. It seems that many famous people have stopped accidentally sharing naked photos of themselves this year. I mean, good for them for learning, but bad for us. Still, there was no shortage of controversial pics — many thanks to Rihanna, who doesn’t care what we think of that white powder or that possibly racist threat against Karrueche Tran. We had some headline-makers, like Miley Cyrus’ non-engagement ring and Leann Rimes’ “fun” shooting range photos. And there certainly were some steamy snaps — from Disney stars like Selena Gomez and Ashley Tisdale, usual suspects Coco and Kim Kardashian, and even newcomers to the scene like Paulina Gretzky. Not many guys got in on the action, but Usher is worth about a dozen regular men, right? Anyway, enough gabbing, let’s get on to the photos!

We saw a few photos of Jennie Garth this week looking really good for someone who’s currently going through a divorce — maybe a little too good around the eyes, if you know what we mean. Of course, that made us wonder how the rest of the original flavor Beverly Hills, 90210 gang is doing these days. They’ve certainly gone through a lot of changes since the first episode of aired in October 1990. Some, like Garth and Shannen Doherty, went on to have other successful series on TV (What I Like About You and Charmed, respectively). Others, like Luke Perry and Jason Priestley, didn’t exactly see their careers take off like we expected. Gabrielle Carteris and Tori Spelling have had a good run as moms, both on and off the air. And we’re still waiting to see when Brian Austin Green and wife Megan Fox will announce her bun in the oven. Regardless of where their careers are these days (where is it, Ian Ziering?), we are pleased to report that most of the former residents of that famed zip code are still looking their sunny, attractive selves. And since we began writing this post, that guitar riff has not left our heads, so we’ll always have that. Anyway, check out this gallery of the kids from Beverly Hills High School both back in the day and now.
