Is Sandy Lakdar Having The Best Week Ever?

by

Sandy

Last week Sandy Lakdar was a no-name French actress with a virtually unwittnessed MySpace profile. But after she was photographed with her arm around K-Fed this week homegirl got to add a million friends. But what we love most about Sandy is that she’s getting famous off a guy who got famous off a girl  who’s actually famous. Which makes her famous twice removed. Which makes her still more famous than us.

CAPTION THIS: Nicky Hilton and Richie Rich

See how long you can look at this photo of socialite Nicky Hilton and androgynous clothing designer/party monster Richie Rich before your eyes simply refuse to stop working:

"What seeing a Captain & Tennille show on LSD would look like."

ALSO: What happened to the Richie Rich we all knew and loved?

While You Were Shopping for a New African Drum

You may have forgotten to treat the skins for your drums, but we didn’t forget to collect all the good stuff that’s going on around the world:

  • The Killers‘ former manager is suing the band for $16 million for breach of contract. In court papers, he was quoted as saying, "It started out with a kiss, how did it end up like this?"
  • Roger Moore is standing up for new 007 Daniel Craig. But who will stand up for Roger Moore?
  • Nicole Richie was seen holding hands with her ex-fiance, Adam Goldstein aka DJ AM. This better work, because I’m still reeling from the failed Charlie Sheen/Denise Richards reconciliation.
  • Some are asking, "Where were the naked men on that Vanity Fair cover?" Publisher is still laughing at the question.
  • There’s an article about a really cool network that everyone loves. It’s the best article ever.
  • So was Lindsay Lohan with Shaun "Flying Tomato" White or Jonathan "Tiny Elvis" Rhys Meyers?

While You Were Thinking About Life’s Important Questions

  • Did KFed actually hit on Jessica Simpson?  Has his marriage to Britney Spears completely destroyed his sense of "his league"?
  • Also, is KFed cheating on Britney with some French chick?  Also, HOW THE F@!K IS KFED GETTING SO MANY WOMEN!?!?
  • Does Mischa Barton have the hots for Jake Gyllenhaal?  Does she mind that he’s gay?
  • Is Will Smith thinking of moving on to Bollywood?  Should we expect him to begin unexpectedly breaking into song and wearing bright colored clothing?
  • Is Steven Spielberg making another Jurassic Park movie?  Why?  (Dinosaurs are scary – we get it already!)
  • Are J. Lo and Marc Anthony going to adopt a child?  Should the world allow children to be treated that way?

LISTEN UP: Your Daily Dose of the Best Music Ever

  • Yeahyeahyeahss
    I’m in a great mood today, because tonight I’m going to see the Yeah Yeah Yeahs in Hoboken. Badminton Stamps has their song "Pin" ready for download, as well as some other cool tunes by The Strokes, Editors, and stellastarr*.
  • Stereogum loves you. To prove it, he posted the track "I Love You" by Cat Power and Jack White’s supermodel wife Karen Elson.
  • Can’t get enough of Ryan Adams? (If you answered ‘No!’, I have to ask: what’s wrong with you? The guy put out 3 albums last year. Stop being so greedy). An Aquarium Drunkard has a bunch of unreleased material, and it’s good. Real good.
  • Listen, if an mp3 blog posts a Traveling Wilburys song– like Locust St. did today– I’m going to have to link it. That’s just the way it is.
  • Live, The Refreshments, and Alice in Chains? Yeah, why not. Thanks to Muppetpastor 3.0, I feel 16 again… and I’m not sure if that’s a good thing or not.

IN CASE YOU MISSED IT: The Brits Beat Us (at Camp)

by

Camp2

Just when we thought TV couldn’t get any better than MTV’S Fat Camp, the British step it up with Tourette’s Camp. The feature length documentary, airing in the UK, follows kids–with a disease that propells them to shout obscenities uncontrollably– during  their summer stint at a therapeutic camp.  Says one British reviewer of the show: "It’s very sad, you feel extremely sorry for these kids. And yet it is funny. They find it funny themselves." Funny, I felt the exact same way the first time I watched Danicia McKellar and Chad Allen in Camp Cucamonga.

The War on Bond

In this time of war, violence and poverty, it’s important to support those pivotal organizations that really make a difference.  A powerful group of devout, web-savvy James Bond fans are committed to giving  the power back to the people. Craignotbond.com, is a non-profit organization who’s sole purpose "is to promote and support a consumer boycott of the new film Casino Royale." Founded by a group of underground grassroots activists, they plan to stop the tyranists who cast Daniel Craig as the new 007 and restore peace to the web-based bond fan community by supporting the recasting of a more suitable actor like Hugh Jackman. Viva La Revolucion!

American Idols Forget Where They Came From

We know you think the final 24 American Idol contestants are superhuman. Sure they’re living in a fancy hotel with room service and bathrobes, hanging out with major celebrities like Ryan Seacrest and working the audience into a lather with "Heard it Through the Grapevine" or "Say You, Say Me",  but they weren’t always so wildly, incredibly, supremely famous. Unfortunately, some Idols can’t seem to remember that. Find out which Idols are letting their fame very brief window of moderate notoriety go to their head.
