What’s this whole “I’m-sorry-I’m really not sorry-Screw your sorry” biz going down?Ã‚Â Shape magazine ed-in-in-chief Valerie Latona,first apologizes for having LeAnn Rimes on the cover of her publication. The story dealt with her and Eddie Cibrian,bringing up all sorts of unpleasant cheating-marriage breaking up associations because a still married Rimes hooked up with a still married Cibrian. Those two aren’t exactly Mr. and Mrs America right now and the pieceÃ‚Â had peeps getting out their pitchforks and screaming, “Adulterer!”Latona’s apologetic statement read,”Please know that our putting her on the cover was not meant to put a husband-stealer on a pedestal-but to show (through her story) how we all are human. And this woman in particular found strength in exercise in what she said was her most difficult personal moment.”
Then Latona does this semi-retraction on her apology writing, “The fact is a mere 40 readers out of almost 6 million readers wrote in to complain calling LeAnn a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœhusband stealerÃ¢â‚¬â„¢ and a Ã¢â‚¬Ëœterrible mistake for Shape.Ã¢â‚¬â„¢ I wrote to those women apologizing that our cover choice did not make them happy Ã¢â‚¬â€œ as I have done for other cover stars in the past.”Ã‚Â Then she blogs a note called Setting the Record Straight on LeAnn Rimes where interestingly enough, the tags on the post are “backpedaling” and “cowardly”.Ã‚Â Ã‚Â Whatevs. Pick a side and stick with it, make your stand blah blah blah.Ã‚Â It’s Monday and we’re grumpy so all this waffling doesn’t cut it.
Because now LeAnn Rimes sees your non-apology and raises the stakes pretty much shoving you out of the game. How? By making the Shape crew look like hypocrites. In her defense, LeAnn tweeted, “wow, that’s really funny since they’re are throwing me a party in LA next week to celebrate this being the 3rd time I’ve been on their cover.” Ouch. Then to drill home the point, LeAnn tweeted the invite. Mission Accomplished. Unless they’ve canned the party… which we’re guessing they have not. Let’s all carry on with our day now.
A wee fan proposed to Demi Lovato after her concert in Colombia. The dude pulled out all the stops and popped out a ring while on bended knee. Of course, his private moment ain’t exactly private anymore. Demi tweeted a picture of the occasion typing, “You guys…. I’m engaged!!!!!!!!”
In case peeps didn’t get it, Demi set the record straight in her next message, tweeting, “And no I’m not really engaged to my fan! That was just a joke!!!” Such a good girl, Demi. Making sure too many hearts didn’t get broken across the globe.
We admit the idea of besties Selena Gomez and Taylor Swift planning a wedding would’ve been fun, although, admittedly a lot more wholesome than Katy Perry and Rihanna‘s pre-wedding bash. Disney stars gone wild! Erm, we don’t think so. Britney Spears, they are not.
An intruder was just caught in Paris Hilton‘s house. Before you tell us this is old news, let us just say… it’s not. Because this is the second time it’s happened this year. Intruder no 1. broke into Paris’ house with two knives in August. Luckily her BF Cy Waits was there to pull a heroic, Batman-like move and saved the heiress. The fact that Cy hasn’t been so lucky post the episode, is of course, a different story altogether.
The newest crazy dude isÃ‚Â James Rainford, who is currently being held on $20,000 bail after being booked for battery. He somehow got past the guard gate on his bike before getting busted by Paris’ private security detail. Here’s the thing though: he managed getting to her front door and knocked as if to say, Ã‚Â ”Hi, I’m the weirdo who just broke into your home. But I knocked before, because I’m polite.”
It’s a good thing she’s invested in bodyguards, but really, how the hell did this guy get past the first blockade in the first place?
Rainford went down swinging too. He got violent with security who had to hold him down till the cops arrived. Once again Paris tweeted about the incident, saying, “So scary today with that creepy guy just showing up at my house like that. Thank god for security.”
You can say that again. Because it seems to be Paris’ lot in life to attract the crazies (and yes, we are talking about her boyfriends too).
Most celebrities get buff while they’re on Dancing With The Stars, but Aaron Carter made his extreme transformation a year after he was on the show. In a Twitter picture Carter posted this weekend, the pop singer has proven himself to have abs, arms, delts, pecs and a neck of steel. He wrote in the Tweet “I’ve been at Johnny Wright’s compound working on my mind, music, and body for a new album release!” Good old Johnny Wright’s – your one-stop shop for turning into a pop music Incredible Hulk. If Carter’s mind and music are anything like his body, we fully expect Carter to sweep the Grammy’s and go to Harvard next year.
What do you think, is his look hot or a little scary?
A source said Lindsay is “only allowed to use her phone for two hours a day, and only to keep in touch with family and close friends.” Okay, we know that our cell phone is invaluable but yikes, to have your usage reduced to two hours? She should also be treated for BlackBerry Thumb. They also said that in the past, Lilo “would repeatedly and compulsively e-mail her friends if she was ever in a situation where she felt lonely, and she would vent on Twitter.” Reducing outside distractions like Twitter and the like is a common policy at Betty Ford so that patients can focus on themselves, according to the source who sure has a lot to say about what should be a private matter in a confidential setting. Lohan hasn’t actually posted any public Tweets since entering this latest bout of rehab, so maybe it’s working already.
The paper also reports that Dina Lohan and Kris Jenner have become besties while Lindsay’s in rehab, and that Kim Kardashian is getting friendlier with Lindsay too. That’s either really sweet and kind, or one more attempt at fame whoring from all involved. We’re sort of thinking the latter.
Bwah ha ha ha ha. There, that felt good. Yes, t’was our reaction to John Mayer‘s declaration that he closed his Twitter account to focus on creating “lasting art.” Blogs music’s most entitled bard, “no artwork created by someone with a healthy grasp of social media thus far has proven to be anything other than disposable.”
He adds, “Those who decide to remain offline will make better work than those online. Why? Because great ideas have to gather.” Fair enough. But isn’t it somewhat hilarious that Johnny made this declaration on his Tumblr blog, yet another social media site? He may have quit Twitter, but he’s still stuck in the social media trenches. Dare we suggest that blogging, such as John is wont to do, takes up even more of the precious time he could spend on the creation of masterpieces like “Your Body is a Wonderland?” Clearly one can only pen brilliant lyrics like, “Girls become lovers who turn into mothers” when closed off from all digital communication. So shouldn’t he shut down completely?
Who’s the dude with the weird floppy hat roughing up the dude with the camera? That just happens to be Adam Lambert kicking a paparazzo’s ass. Woah. We’re surprised, ’cause Lambert really doesn’t strike us as the kind of guy who would suddenly go all Terminator on anyone!
The slap-down happened in South Beach, where Glambert and his peeps were chilling and walking around in the sunshine. Paparazzi were swarming around them and got a little too close for comfort, and that’s when Adam snapped. He was walking back to his hotel when he jumped the closest photog, shoving him around until his friends had to separate them. And if they hadn’t already made their displeasure perfectly clear, the American Idol alum’s entourage mooned the cameramen right after.
Don’t expect any remorse from the singer, however. The incident is outlined on Lambert’s Twitter, reading, “Eeew paparazzi killed my peaceful afternoon on the beach! #howisthisok?” This was followed by a longer tweet, with him venting, “They’re real good at provoking, but there ain’t any pics or video of the b.s. they spew out… Haha well… I lost my temper for a sec but wow it felt great lol MIAMI!!!”
Looks like he was feeling quite chatty, because he ended up calling out his own dodgy sartorial choices as well, tweeting, “Hahha the photos are hilarious !! Lol please everyone forgive me for that hat. – I was attempting a disguise- clearly failed. Hahah.” We’re laughing too, but we bet that camera dude isn’t! Who thinks a lawsuit is coming Glambo’s way even though the paparazzo seems to be smiling in half of these pics? Unfortunately, we do.
It takes a lot to get this dude down so this can’t be good. Hulk Hogan‘s in hospital after he was admitted for “excruciating back pain.” He’s had plenty of surgery on his back over the years, probably due to his wrestling career and it looks like this bout’s following the same route. Apparently the Hulk had discomfort in his back over the last few days until yesterday, when he found he couldn’t get out of bed. Luckily his girlfriend was around and she called the ambulance. He’s still in hospital going through tests.
This is the Hulk though, so you can’t expect him to stay down. Hulk posted a bunch of videos from his room, where he wrote on TwitVid: “Emergency at morton plant hospital, hung on as long as I could. back is totally spazzing out. time to heal. HH.”
Pigs have officially grown wings. The sky has officially fallen. Taylor Momsen has officially wiped off her racoon-eyeliner and started dressing like a nun. The Situation has officially vowed never to take off his shirt again. Snooki officially, for real,has stopped drinking.
What could have brought on events of such earth shattering proportions? What could have bent all the known laws of the universe? Y’all have heard of parallel universes, right? An alternative reality is a self-contained separate reality coexisting with one’s own “real” reality. In this case, Twitter, or the Twitterverse fits the bill. Anything can happen here, even things that are totally inverse to a normal existence. Case in point: Kanye West apologizing to Taylor Swift. Or the “ego that beats all egos” apologizes to country cutie.
Now we’ll probably never know what led to this because to read ‘Nye’s mind is to akin to deciphering Paula Abdul‘s ramblings on American Idol (we miss you, Paula!) All we have are the facts. And these are on Kanye’s Twitter account amounting to an hour and a half long rant. Which contained gems like this tweet, “I’m ready to get out of my own way. The ego is overdone… it’s like hoodies.” Or this tweet, “These tweets have no manager, no publicist , no grammar checking… this is raw.”
Obvs, the fact that the VMA’s are coming up on Sunday the 12th means that he knows that we’re wondering if he’s going to go banana split up on stage again. We’re guessing he wants the world to know that he hasn’t got any crazy left. Look at this tweet, “Beyonce didn’t need that. MTV didn’t need that and Taylor and her family friends and fans definitely didn’t want or need that.”
And after many, many, many messages, the final message he tweeted was this, “I’m sorry Taylor.” Remorse drives us to do funny things. And then we have to apologize for them. Circle of life, dudes….circle of life.
