Lindsay Lohan Tells Dad To Back Off

Yesterday we reported that Michael Lohan was in a tizzy because Lindsay‘s girlfriend Samantha Ronson is allegedly shopping around a tell-all. We were thinking about something he said all night: “She’s using my daughter. People never even knew who Samantha Ronson was until she met Lindsay.”

Isn’t it more like people never knew who Michael Lohan was before his daughter became famous? And now what do people know him for? A DUI? Serving time? Trying to profit off of his estranged daughter’s name by hawking ideas for reality TV shows?

Well, Lindsay isn’t having it. She issued a rebuttal to Access Hollywood: “He’s out of control. I want him to stop hurting and talking to the media about the people I love.” Since she’s the only reason the media listens to him at all, he should think about abiding.


10 Rolling Stone Cover Models John Mayer Needs To Bang

Jennifer Love Hewitt, Cameron Diaz, Jessica Simpson, Jennifer Aniston. Looks like John Mayer has a type: Rolling Stone cover models. One can easily imagine a young Mayer reading the magazine in his bathroom, dreaming of rock stardom and whacking off to er’s angels. “Someday, when I’m famous, I’m totally gonna nail her! Oooooh! *skin flute solo*” Assuming he’s been crossing names off a “to-do” list, here’s ten wonderlands Mayer could use his hands on next.


George Clooney & Brad Pitt: The Ultimate Bromance

You’d think George Clooney & Brad Pitt would be like two magnetic objects pulling away from each other’s competing sexiness, but the Ocean’s Eleven stars can’t seem to get enough quality time together. They may not go bike-riding like Mateo & Jake, but watching them pose and quip (“I’ll be sharing mine with him,” said Pitt about Clooney’s lack of offspring) in Venice  to promote Burn After Reading is a bromoerotic pleasure without parallel. Stand between them and they will melt you like butter. Soak in this gallery and give your computer some sexy class.

Brad Pitt Brings The Kids To Venice

Brad Pitt won’t let last year’s psycho fan drama keep him from returning to the Venice Film Festival to promote his new Burn After Reading. This time he even brought along his sons! Maddox, 7, and Pax, 4, tagged along for Daddy’s boat ride from the airport. Scandalist sincerely hopes that Maddox’s blue mohawk becomes a hot trend in playgrounds everywhere.

Snoop’s Face (And Record) Is Scary Down Under

Snoop DoggIn 2007, Snoop Dogg was refused permission to apply for a visa to enter Australia because of his criminal record (which includes drug charges, firearms possession and a murder acquittal). Aussie immigration officials have recently had a change of heart though (no doubt ensuring they get honorary membership to the Dogg Pound), by reconsidering giving him a temporary visa for his tour with Ice Cube, scheduled for October. If he is allowed in, the country would require him to attend special counseling prior to his arrival and adhere to a strict set of behavior rules while there (no weed, only Fosters beer?).

A member of the Australian Family Association, Angela Conway, still isn’t having it though, saying that “Snoop Dogg trades in toxic messages of menace, violence, misogyny and lawlessness.” Which, okay, yes, is true. But for a country where Russell Crowe is allowed to roam freely and baby-eating dingoes are par for the course, they sure are selective. Snoop’s approval process is already under way, but the visa hasn’t been made official yet.

After the jump, a compilation of Snoop Dogg faces that wreak of sex, violence and weed — all categorized for your convenience. Warning to Australians: This will scare you!

Vanessa Minnillo Shows Off Her Legs (And A Mystery Man?) In NYC

Rumors are catching fire that Nick Lachey and longtime girlfriend Vanessa Minnillo are on a one way trip to splitsville. Lachey started dating Minnillo in 2006 after separating from then wife Jessica Simpson. There were rumblings after The National Enquirer reported that the couple allegedly were seen having a blowout before entering a LA restaurant last month. In April, Lachey’s representative told Us Magazine the account is “not true,” but tongues were wagging yesterday after Minnillo was spotted with a “mystery man” in NYC.

He looks as plastic as Nick and he’s confident enough to wear a pink shirt, so he might just have a chance with the brunette Barbie. Don’t go into mourning for the twosome quite yet, a source told, “They are 100 percent together and fine and in love.” The insider said the couple took a “romantic trip” to NYC last weekend. Nick was also pretty hardcore about denying break-up rumors about him and his ex-wife Simpson, so anything’s possible. [Photo: Splash News Online]


Meet Mary-Kate’s New Man

Mary-Kate Olsen and rumored new beau Nate Lowman were spotted smooching over lunch at NYC’s Barbuto on Friday. MK and Nate have been spending a lot of time together. They were also spotted strolling through NYC last week. The 28-year-old may be a great match for artsy Mary-Kate. A native of Brooklyn, Nate is an artist whose work has been displayed at several prominent galleries in New York and he even had his own show at the Galerie Michelle in 2006.

Warning: Heidi Montag’s New Video Will Make You Want To Overdose

Unless you’ve been living under a rock (or blessed with good sense), you probably already know that there’s a new single called “Overdosin’” by reality TV’s Heidi Montag. It was released last Monday, and of course a video was sure to follow. Not content to roll around on a beach, lip-synching to her monotone-techno song stylings while Spencer Pratt holds the camera (ever see Best Week Ever‘s version of “Higher”?), Heidi actually employs some production value in her latest effort.

She takes a cue from Olivia Newton John in the video and gets decked out in her best Capezio and Danskin, although you can be sure Olivia never displayed so many dead-eyed crotch shots. What working out has to do with overdosin’ on love is anybody’s guess. Our theory is that the spandex is just a colorful distraction to cover up all the voice distortion.

According to news outlets, the video was supposed to debut at at 1pm EST today — and it still isn’t up. As much as we wish we weren’t interested, we have to admit that we can’t wait to see this monstrosity in its entirety. [Photos: Pacific Coast News]


Taylor Momsen: 15 Doesn’t Look Like It Used To

In light of the recent Chinese gymnast age controversy, we at Scandalist would like to take a moment to acknowledge what 15 years old looks like in Hollywood. Gossip Girl star Taylor Momsen has come a long way since playing the adorable Cindy Lou Who in The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. It seems she skipped that whole awkward, gangly stage most tall girls go through and headed straight to model-esque bombshell. The amount of eyeliner, leather, and leg that Momsen routinely dons on the red carpet makes us a bit worried for her future … considering our adolescent idea of a “sassy look” was getting hot pink bands on our braces and wearing glitter on our eyelids.
