We’re not sure what it is, but there’s something in the water in Hollywood. Celebs of all kinds have made sex tapes. Whether its reality stars (ahem, Kim Kardashian and Farrah Abraham) or TV stars (we’re looking at you, Minka Kelly), they all pressed record on their camera. Here’s a listing of all the major celebrity sex tapes organized in alphabetical order by last name. The list includes masturbation, BJs, threesomes, political fallout and a limp bizkit. Read more…
Election fever is starting to go full tilt as we cruise into fall, and celebs of all stripes have put in appearances at the national political conventions to show their support for their favorite presidential candidate! Democrats seemed to have the hotties in their corner, with appearances from Scarlett Johansson, Natalie Portman, Kerry Washington and Eva Longoria. Yeah, we all know about how most of Hollywood are Democrats (insert evil liberal media bias conspiracy argument here). But what can we say, the pictures speak for themselves! We also have some rap and R&B artists like Common, will.i.am and Mary J. Blige bringing the noise and the funk for Barack Obama. Even U.S. Gynmastic sweetheart Gabby Douglas got in on the red, white and blue fun!
Say what you will about their politics, but the Republican National Convention definitely rocked the hardest of the two. Mitt Romney and the gang had a hand from freakin’ Journey! But that’s not all. Axe-men from3 Doors Down, Lynyrd Skynyrd shredded their strings for the GOP, and Kid Rock, Trace Adkins and Taylor Hicks also showed up to belt a few tunes. Plus, who could forget Clint Eastwood and his incredible empty chair? Head to the gallery below to check out all the famous folks who have made their voices heard at the national political conferences!
Last night’s CMT Awards were a pretty loose, easygoing affair, a good thing considering how often non-country stars like Justin Bieber, Ludcaris and Sheryl Crow (who accidentally flashed her panties while singing with host Kid Rock) appeared on stage. Despite the interlopers, pop-country titans were able to maintain their authority, either by winning big awards (like Taylor Swift and the recently married Miranda Lambert and Blake Shelton did) or by falling on their ass while walking to the camera, like Shania Twain did in the above clip.
Not only did Shania immediately laugh off the tumble, she posted a video about it only hours later! Check it out after the jump, and check out the pop-country fashion on hand in the gallery below.
No, you didn’t fall asleep in a time machine and wake up in 1998 when you’d expect to read about Kid Rock in the news. Apparently there’s a boycott against the NAACP awards over Kid Rock’s Confederate flag use in concerts. The singer is scheduled to receive the Great Expectations Award from the civil rights organization May 1, where he will also give the keynote address. “It’s a slap in the face for anyone who fought for civil rights in this country. It’s a symbol of hate and bigotry,” says Adolph Mongo, head of the group Detroiters for Progress. We’re offended by this too! We mean, Kid Rock has been out of the national eye for so long; the only award he should get is Furthest Distance From Which A Human Can Smell A Pig (Distance: 1 mile).
Says the director of Detroit’s NAACP branch Donnell R. White, “Kid Rock…has consistently lifted up the Great Expectations of many persons…concerning the future of the city.” Kid Rock is also appearing at a benefit to celebrate George H.W. Bush and volunteerism. A man of contradictions, the Kid. It seems to us that anyone who doesn’t actively wear the Confederate flag like it’s the new black would be a better candidate for a NAACP award, but what do we know? We take it Fred Durst wasn’t available?
If this were any other event, we would just assume that Johnny Knoxville, Kid Rock and Michael Kenneth Williams made poor fashion choices and then proceed to mock them mercilessly. But they were invited to the GQ Men of the Year Gala last night at the Chateau Marmont in Los Angeles. And we were not. So we have to assume that they are just operating on a level that we mere fashion mortals cannot comprehend.
You may think these suits are sort of hideous, but in five years you’ll have one in every color! Way to stay ahead of the curve, guys. Thankfully some other ladies and gents were a little less fashion forward. Twi-Bros Kellan Lutz and Taylor Lautner donned dapper suits, Glee peeps Chris Colfer, Kevin McHale and Cory Monteith ditched their school attire, and Mike “The Situation” Sorrentino even kept his shirt on. Check out the hits and misses in the gallery below!
Some of the biggest stars of music and movies showed up at the annual Country Music Awards last night in Nashville. Taylor Swift, Miranda Lambert, Rascal Flatts and some of the usual country crowd strutted their stuff across the red carpet, as well A-Listers Gwyneth Paltrow and Nicole Kidman. Something for everyone! There were actors and singers, T-shirts and gowns, good taste and bad taste. For every amazing ensemble, there was one outfit that clearly came from outer space. Check out the fashion do’s and don’ts below!
While most of us would agree that it’s a stretch to still describe baseball as being Our National Pastime™, there’s little sense denying that every playoff baseball game played during the month of October is laden with the kind of dramatic tension that makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand at attention. This post, however, is not really about celebrating the magic and mystery of America’s most revered professional sport. Rather, it’s about the celebrities who trot themselves out to the pitcher’s mound before games to throw out the ceremonial first pitch.
First, the facts: Every single Major League Baseball team plays 81 home games during the course of the season. This means that the poor public relations department of each team has to come up with 81 different ways to get the crowd excited before a game. In some of baseball’s larger markets, teams draw upon their access to a range of different celebrities, a list that runs the gamut from Hollywood’s A-List to downtrodden reality television flameouts, to get their fans excited over a long and often monotonous season. So we here at TheFABLife thought you would get a kick out of seeing celebs of all magnitudes — most of whom are not exactly known for their athletic abilities — attempting to throw a baseball sixty feet and six inches. So, if you pardon the expression, who throws like a girl and who throws like someone who could be called up to The Show? Now’s the time to find out. Play ball!
The official Hope for Haiti Now telethon lineup has just been announced, and this show is going to be even bigger than we had imagined. Rarely, if ever, have so many of the world’s biggest musicians mobilized so quickly with Hollywood elite (plus President Clinton and Oprah) to lend a helping hand in a time of tragedy. If only George Clooney, the mastermind behind the telethon, had been responsible for the relief efforts after Hurricane Katrina!

Lest you didn’t think it was possible, there is one celebrity who is not a fan of Twitter: Kid Rock. The former Mr. Pam Anderson said of the social network, “It’s gay. If one more person asks me if I have a Twitter, I’m going to tell them, ‘Twitter this sh*t, motherf*cker.'” And then, despite having – you know – said that, he continued, “I don’t have anything to say, and what I have to say is not that relevant. Anything that is relevant, I’m going to bottle it up and then squeeze it onto a record somewhere.”
We appreciate that he’s not going all Ashton and Demi on us, but since when is Kid Rock known for holding back? And considering he hates Twitter so much, we wonder if he knows that there’s someone on there posing as him. Sorry, twit-friends of “_Kid_Rock_” but that ain’t the real deal. [Photo: WireImage]
Like anyone, celebrities are not immune to anger or rage. Maybe it’s the relentless paparazzi or annoying fans. Or maybe it’s just life in general that’s gettin’ their goats. Regardless, sometimes the best way to vent is to proudly display the good ‘ol middle digit. Check out Ashton Kutcher, Fergie, Suri Cruise (!), Samantha Ronson, Courtney Love (repeat offender) and 50 other stars flipping the infamous bird.
