Kim and Kris, Russell and Katy, Demi and Ashton…We all know it’s been pretty rough out there for celebrity couples. But through it all, there’s one duo who has never faltered. We’re of course talking about BBFs George Clooney and Brad Pitt. These first teamed up on the big screen in 2001′s Ocean’s 11, and they’ve been tight ever since. “Brad is one of the great guys,” George recently told the Hollywood Reporter. Sadly, it seems like their bromance is mostly a long distance affair. “We’re good friends, but it’s different from what people think—meaning we don’t spend a lot of time together. He has been to my home in Como; we motorcycle together. But until recently, I hadn’t seen Brad in a year.” Absence makes the heart grow fonder. Or something like that!
But seriously, these dudes really seem to care about each other, and the enjoyment they get from each other’s company is clear in every picture. They’ve shared screen time, and now for the first time their sharing Oscar nominations! Clooney got the nod for his role as the “back-up parent” in The Descendants, and Brad for his portrayal of Oakland A’s manager and stats wiz Billy Beane in Moneyball. So in honor of their duel moment of glory, let’s take a look back at their most adorably bromantic photos. Enjoy!

You know who doesn’t get enough love from the world of haute couture? Cerberus, the three-headed hound that guards the gates of Hades in Greek mythology. Lucky Lady Gaga’s V Magazine cover is finally giving credit where credit is due. Mother Monster not only fronts the magazine’s new Asian issue, she also writes her own article on fashion, in which she claims: “I myself can look at almost any hemline, silhouette, beadwork or heel architecture and tell you very precisely who designed it first, what French painter they stole it from, how many designers reinvented it after them and what cultural and musical movement parented the birth, death and resurrection of that particular trend.” If anyone throughout all of history has ever used a tri-headed dog as part of their Asian-inspired look, then we really need to stop shopping at Target and pay attention.
Of course, if an homage to the legendary hound isn’t enough to get your fashion motor running (running so hard and so fast away from the V photo shoot), you can also turn to Lady Gaga’s penis shoes for inspiration. Gaga’s American Idol appearance was intended to inspire the final contestants to greatness, but the Lucite phalluses she wore on her boots might also birth a whole generation of wiener shoes. We’re sure all of the hell beasts would be pleased.

Taylor Momsen! We’ve missed you! Where have you been? Distance must make the heart grow fonder because the longer she’s off our blog, the more we seek her out. And here she is in all her glory, getting off a bus in Vienna, Virginia to perform with her band The Pretty Reckless. Is it that we haven’t seen her in awhile, or did her eyes get even more raccoon-like? It seems that way but we’ve only got one eye to review, in this picture. And the HAIR. Limp but braided — way to change things up, Tay. There’s something so reassuring about the fact that her clothes are still shredded and the hooker-garters are still on. No matter what happens, we’ll always have that scowling, chalky, face to make us feel better about ourselves. Bless you, Taylor.

You know how some days, you’re out at the stables riding your horse (whose name is Taffy, of course), when you realize, “Oh no! I forgot to pick up sparkling water!” so you leave to go to the store to pick some up but you just can’t manage to carry the twelve-pack and your riding helmet and your fresh-cut flowers and your Prada bag? You’re not alone – Selma Blair had just that conundrum yesterday. Sometimes when we start to think that celebrities live in a world so foreign to ours, stuff like this that makes us realize they’re actually no different from you and me.

Simon Cowell must have been pretty inspired by The 40-Year-Old Virgin to get so zealous with his chest waxing. The American Idol judge, seen here just chillin’ out, shirtless on the deck of a boat in Nice, France kind of overdid it though. See, there’s grooming to keep things from being too unruly (like, for instance,Ã‚Â J. Lo’s eyebrows when she was a Fly Girl vs. her eyebrows now)Ã‚Â , and there’s overdoing it (Pauly D.’s eyebrows all the time). This grooming falls into the latter category, as Simon has created a landing strip like no other on his belly. It is a modern marvel of precision and questionable taste, with a dash of “Dear God, why??”
Makes us wonder if he, like Steve Carell, yelled out “Kelly Clarkson!” during his waxing session, or if there’s another Idol contestant’s name he prefers to scream out in moments of agony. If it were us, we’d go with “Bowersox!”
