A lovely Lily Allen married boyfriend Sam Cooper in a little church in Cranham, near Gloucester, England, just day before yesterday, on Saturday. The gown had a beautifully vintage feel to it with it’s Calais lace overlay, long sleeves, 1920′s veil and a three foot train. It was created by a French designer called Delphine Manivetwho said, “Lily is a girl who is quite rock and roll, but her wedding she wanted to be traditional.”
It gets even better for the 26-year-old singer, because it turns out that Lily is pregnant as well, news which they delivered to wedding guests! Lily suffered a devastating miscarriage last year, and one before that in 2008 while dating Ed Simons of The Chemical Brothers, so this must be especially healing for her. We wish the new couple and parents-to-be much joy! Congratulations! More pictures from the wedding below.
There we were… going about our typical Sunday morning coffee ‘n’ news routine, when BAM! These GQ motherf*cker photos rolled into our twitter feed. Has Robert Pattinson (photos) ever looked more dapper?! RP looks so out-of-this-world hot, we’re thinking Cronenberg may be poking him to see if it’s actually our beloved polished-up hobo or a Madame Tussaud impostor who’s been plopped on the set of Cosmopolis.
Good morning, indeed.

Can anyone get us into Jack White and Karen Elson divorce party? Oh wait, the invitation says “no plus ones or dead beats.” Since we’re both, looks like we’ll have to find out about the party like everyone else in America: from the personal invitation leaked to the press, which reads: “In honor of that time shared, we are throwing a divorce party. An evening together in Nashville to re-affirm our friendship and celebrate the past and future with close friends and family.” We’d like to think this could happen with more couples, but the only “throwing” most people associate with their divorce is someone “throwing” their entire DVD collection out of the window into the snow.
Said the former White Stripes singer and his soon-to-be ex-wife in their official statement, “We remain dear and trusted friends and co-parents to our wonderful children Scarlett and Henry Lee. We feel so fortunate for the time we have shared and the time we will continue to spend both separately and together watching our children grow.” So it looks like it’s onto the next step in any failed relationship: forming a wildly successful two-person alt-rock phenomenon!
I have very thick skin when it comes to humor; I can dish and I can take. What I can’t take is when Mr. Morgan took it upon himself to mention about how he feels all this gay sh*t was crazy and that women are a gift from God and that “Born this Way” is bullsh*t, gay is a choice, and the reason he knows this is exactly because “God don’t make no mistakes” (referring to God not making someone gay cause that would be a mistake). He said that there is no way a woman could love and have sexual desire for another woman, that’s just a woman pretending because she hates a f*cking man…He said if his son that was gay he better come home and talk to him like a man and not [he mimicked a gay, high pitched voice] or he would pull out a knife and stab that little N (one word I refuse to use) to death.
Ohboy. Rodgers already eloquently (but tragically) summed up his initial reactions to the event in this thread, and most of the details sound more than a little stomach-turning. Morgan has since apologized, and thankfully didn’t invoke the well-worn “I’m a comedian” non-defense, but of the many angering and confusing aspects of this incident, one stands out to me above all others:
The idea of “being gay is a choice” still thriving in U.S. culture in 2011 is just beyond mindboggling.
Obviously your mom is going to have high standards for anyone you date. So, if you have to date a charming, seemingly stable teenage millionaire to meet those specifications, just get over yourself and do it already. Luckily, Selena Gomez’s Leno interview last night (filmed right before Selena’s hospital visit last night) confirms that her parental unit is in full support of current boyfriend Justin Bieber. “He passed the test,” Gomez said demurely when asked what her mother thought of Justin.Considering all the smooching going on in recent Selena and Justin photos, that was probably a relief for her daughter to hear. You know who Mama Gomez probably wouldn’t pass? Selena’s fellow guest Jim Carrey, who’s question about her Teen Vogue cover shoot (“Do they make you vomit?”) was met with an emphatic No! You, sir, are no Biebs.
What do you do when you’re an adorably named animal hospital and you find yourself stuck with 10 orphaned baby owls? Well, there’s only one thing to do really…
PUT EM ON A BRANCH!
And that’s exactly what St. Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital in England did. This scrolling photo features 10 baby orphaned owls who are making a new family for themselves, even though they’re not owl blood related. (Step-Owls.) The owls are said to get along famously, and just sit around and stare at each other all day while eating mice.
As far as the photo goes, I believe it was @danhoppwho put it best: “It’s kind of like the ship at the beginning of Spaceballs.” You know I love a long scroll. We won’t judge you if you watch these 10 baby orphan owls scroll by 6 or 7 times at least.
Celebrities are dropping like really fabulous, divaish flies today! First Selena Gomez headed to the E.R., then this morning Jennifer Hudson’s hospital visit came directly on the heels of her Good Morning America performance. Her spokesperson reported that the singer had “severe abdominal pains,”and that “[s]he was treated for food poisoning and released.” Hudson unfortunately had to cancel her concert on CBS’ The Early Show, but will undoubtedly be able to reschedule for a day when every hospital bed isn’t packed with groaning pop stars. Also announced this week was Jennifer Hudson’s weightloss memoir, which we’re assuming will not go into a lot of detail about what it’s like to be hunched over in the backseat of a speeding cab while Robin Roberts strokes your hair and asks if you need a bucket.
Here is Rachel McAdams looking at herself on the Jumbotron during Game 4 of the Bruins vs. Canucks game:
Listen, Rachel. Look. We get it. You’re adorable. You’re perfect. You can do no wrong.
But honestly, this quest to be the most adorable celebrity on Earth has got to stop. We get it: You’re perfect!!!!!!!!!! Now give some other girls a chance to shine. Like Raven Symone. Do you know how long it’s been since someone called Raven Symone adorable?? Too long. Or what about Jennifer Love Hewitt? She was just voted the world’s worst actress, don’t you think it would make her week a little brighter if someone said “Oh, hey, that Jennifer Love Hewitt? She’s pretty adorable!”
But no. You just constantly have to be doing the most adorably thing humanly possible, don’t you? Well good for you. I’m going to go buy the world’s most adorable parasol and just twirl it in Times Square and hope that people momentarily forget about you for long enough to pay me a compliment. Have a great weekend, Rachel McAdams. (Meant sincerely, you’re the best!) (pps Please get back together with Ryan Gosling? Pleaaaaase??)
How is it possible that a 13-year-old girl is our new style icon? That’s what we’re wondering as we ogle at pics of Super 8 star Elle Fanning, whose quirky yet chic fashion picks have made her a red carpet star in no time. She’s edgy yet age appropriate, with a bit of hippie California girl mixed in. The look works, she stands out amongst her peers over and over again, and not just because of her height and striking features (though they certainly help). Check out the actress’ style evolution over the years below. We’re particularly fond of her ever-growing eye wear collection. You?
At first when we watched this video of Black Eyed Peas’ Will.I.Am forgetting his lyrics, then reading his entire rap break off his BlackBerry, we felt embarrassed for him. But when we watched it again, we realized that the fact he doesn’t even attempt to hide what he’s trying to do is…a little awesome. The man doesn’t even look phased as he scrolls through his rhymes while performing on-stage with Stromae on the French show Taratata. You can tell he’s thinking, “Yup, just dancing with this guy in bright red knee socks while I read directly off this tiny screen. And? I chose to assume you’re staring at me with your mouth open because you love my blazer that much.” The song, “Don’t Stop The Party” is at least a new one; if Will was breaking it down to “My Humps,” “Let’s Get It Started,” or any other classic Peas song, he could have just rhymed the last word of each line and no one would have ever been the wiser.
