Partay time at Lincoln Center in New York yesterday! Stars poured in for the Time’s 100 Gala celebrating Time’s 100 Most Influential People for 2011. We’re proud to say that three of our Top 5 WTF people on the list turned up! Leading that parade was a gorgeous Blake Lively who debuted a new strawberry blonde ‘do. We love it, and we loved her in that sexy Zuhair Murad gown. We reckon she’s on the list for most influential boobs and legs, right? Rain, the South Korean pop star, just looked happy to be there. And Mark Wahlberg, as chiseled as ever, showed up with his sexyface on.
We also love Amy Poehler and Aziz Ansari far too much, so we’re just going to pass on talking about their outfits. But we will talk about freshly brewed brunette Anna Kendrick who wore a black cocktail frock with a dangerously low plunging neckline! She better have put in a whole roll of double-sided tape for that one! Our Ultimate FAB Icon, Chris Colfer, had to be there too! Oprah‘s best buddy, Gayle King, showed up as well looking pretty fine in a cerulean blue gown, and the musician crowd was well-repped by Bruno Mars and ?uestlove. There’s more, folks, so check out our gallery below.
We haven’t seen Robin Williams in awhile but, dayum. Is that him under that bushy white beard that seems to be eating his face? Apparently so, even though it looks like he’s abducting the hapless female behind him. He’s pictured here leaving a fundraiser in New York with his girlfriend. Yes, the woman with what looks very likely to be a killer pair of legs and an outfit we’d die for, is Robin’s girlfriend, graphic designer Susan Schneider. We’re just not getting on board with her famous boyfriend’s latest look, though. Whutup with the kiss curl, Robin? Hopefully he’ll lose the beard after wrapping up Bengal Tiger at the Baghdad Zoo on Broadway, he’s straying dangerously close to creepy old Hollywood dude territory (with a girlfriend half his age to boot). Say it isn’t so, Robin!
No one can say terrible tattoos are going out of style anytime soon; Avril Lavigne and Rihanna’s neck tattoos can attest to that. If nothing else, Ke$ha’s home tattooing kit will keep America flooding with regrettable ink for the foreseeable future. That being said, recent photos suggest Megan Fox’s tattoo removal has begun, starting with the portrait of Marilyn Monroe she has permanently etched into her forearm. Of the two photos above, the more recent photo is on the right, taken on April 16 while the traditionally tattoo-covered Fox cheered for husband Brian Austin Green at the Long Beach Grand Prix. Beginning earlier this spring, Fox’s ode to the classic blond seems to have faded away as gently and as quietly as her acting career. Maybe Megan finally realized that large forearm tattoos don’t play so well if you’re hoping to play a role that doesn’t involve leaning over a motorcycle, making out with Mickey Rourke, or some odious combination of the two.
The only thing we know about Logan Lerman is that at just 19 years old, it’s creepy that we think he’s cute. But we can’t help ourselves – we’ve gotten it in our head that he MUST play Simon in the upcomingMortal Instrumentsmovie and we just can’t let it go. Now we’re a bit intrigued with wee Logan, and so we’re naturally curious about these pictures of him and his Percy Jackson co-star Alexandra Daddario out in NYC last week. She’s six years older than him, so surely nothing’s happening between them…but wouldn’t it be awesome if something was? (Is there? Someone give us the scoop!) Next up for Logan is The Three Musketeers this summer. Kinda seems like he’s on the verge of blowing up, eh?
Look, Daniel Radcliffe is already an international film and musical theater star. He doesn’t need to be good at stand-up; leave that for the less good-looking and millionaire-ish among us. Unfortunately for everyone working on their ten minutes, Daniel Radcliffe’s stand-up debut on Fallon last night was actually…sort of charming and funny. Damn that tiny adorable man!
“This is going to be terrible,” Radcliffe admitted, after explaining “I’ve also been completely fearful of doing anything like that, ’cause I think you’d have to be insane.” We love Daniel’s uncomfortable yet resolved face, and the cry of alarm from behind the curtain before Fallon introduced him as “Danny Radcliffe.” We aren’t going to spoil his one and only joke, which he rightfully attributed to British comedian Peter Kay. Between this performance and Daniel texting J.K. Rowling not to write another Harry Potter book after Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part II comes out, looks like the rest of us will just head back to the open mics. At least until Daniel tries out his own material; then it’s anybody’s game.
So, here are a lot of carved Bananas. Splash News explains:
These a-peeling sculptures are sure to make you go bananas – with the faces of Elvis and Davey Jones from Pirates of The Caribbean. The detailed works of fruity art are carved with a toothpick and a spoon. Each piece is completed fast, before the bananas start to rot.
First off, two word plays in one sentence… nice. And, seemingly, you guys are among a very select group of people who get to see these pictures because they came with the very clear instructions, “Usage: NO AUSTRALIA, BELGIUM, CHINA, DENMARK, ESTONIA, FINLAND, FRANCE, GERMANY, HUNGARY, ITALY, POLAND, PORTUGAL, ROMANIA, RUSSIA, SPAIN, SWEDEN, UKRAINE, UNITED KINGDOM.” Hahaha, Europe is so screwed, you guys!
If you’re worried that there might not be a whole ton of these, you can seriously relax. We’ve got 13 to go after this one.
Even the peel looks like an actual thing Elvis would wear.
Do not doubt the power of Donnie Wahlberg‘s Twitter! The NKOTB member and Blue Bloods star not only “twugs” far beyond the call of duty, but a recent retweet may have managed to save a fan’s life. “Basically, a few of my Twitter followers retweeted a blog about a fan named Bobbette who was in desperate need of a kidney transplant,” Donnie told the Boston Herald. “So I saw the tweet, read the link and then retweeted and asked for help.” Donnie’s darlings did just that, providing Vanderbilt University with six potential matches. Now Bobbette is scheduled to get The Right Kidney in June! Woah-oh, oh-oh-oh!
Of course, Donnie refused to take too much credit for the medical donor mobilizing, calling it a “team effort.” “ItÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s a testament to the value of Twitter when used for more than telling people what one is eating for dinner or using it to sell products by tweeting as an #endorser,” he told the Herald. Hard to believe this guy used to be the “bad boy” in the New Kids! Hopefully she’ll be able to catch the New Kids and the Backstreet Boys during their upcoming summer tour.
There used to be this busking duo on the New York City subway that would play Wham‘s Careless Whisper on a guitar and violin. It was an amazing subway thing bested only by the lady who used to smile and tell everybody to “sing while you are young.” If it was Sunday, she would add, “…and try to go to church today.” But she never asked for money, so everyone’s subway charity proceeds went to the Careless Whisper guys who we can all assume made one million dollars and have since retired.
This man, Eric Calderone, however, might have just done a better version of Careless Whisper on metal guitar. It is really great.
Long Black Hair: Check
Black Guitar: Check
Black Tee shirt: Check
Wham Song: Yes, sure, nobody can think of a reason why not.
