Evan Rachel Wood is having a baby…and it’s not Marilyn Manson’s! Sorry, when we first heard the news we regressed to a few years ago when Wood was engaged to the shock rocker, and the thought of his spawn caused us to have flashbacks to Rosemary’s Baby. But then we remembered that the 25-year-old actress married Jamie Bell in October, and we chilled out a bit. And now the couple are having their first child together! Yay! And it’s not Manson’s. Double yay!
“Evan Rachel Wood and husband Jamie Bell confirmed that they are expecting their first child later this year,” a rep for the pair told Us Weekly. “The couple is thrilled.” This is not the first baby news for the newlyweds, who met on the set of Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends” back in 2005. Rumors were floating around that they were expecting soon after their wedding, but Evan (or is it Evan Rachel?) shot down the reports soon after. “Sorry to disappoint. But no baby on the way here.” Now we’re so happy to report the opposite. Congrats to the happy couple! Check out the soon-to-be-parents being adorable in the gallery below.
It’s safe to say the best part of Halloween is checking out everyone’s costumes, especially celebrities — they’ve got mountains of money, they dress up for a living, they should really be the best at this, right? Unfortunately, some celebs are blessed with both an overabundance of creativity and a lack of good decision-making skills, and there’s a fine line between really great and successful costumes and weird, played out and awful ones. Between Aaron Carter‘s pimp suit (played out and weird for a 14-year-old) and Perez Hilton‘s interpretation of Lady Gaga (weird and awful) there’s no shortage of odd getups. Here are 20 that probably should have never, ever happened.
The MTV Video Music Awards are known for having one of the most varied guest lists in showbiz, creating mind-blowingly random Hollywood juxtapositions. Many unexpected duos are tapped to present awards together, and sometimes folks are feeling friendly and just want a picture with their secret celeb crush.These unexpected pairings sometimes could be the musical collaboration of our dreams, much likeLady Gaga and Cher appearing side by side (with a side of beef) back in 2010. Or they could be the nightmare we wish would end, like the legendary meeting of Kanye West and Taylor Swift in ’09. Who would have thought teen sweetheart Mandy Moore would want to be hugged up with the creepy Marilyn Manson? The VMAs have given us some insanely wonderful worlds colliding moments over the years, so we’ve made a gallery to celebrate our favorite. Head down bellow to check out our 20 Most Unexpected VMA Pairings of All Time. Let’s hope we can have another 50 Cent and Paris Hilton moment this Thursday!
Since Madonna first writhed on the floor back in 1984, the MTV Video Music Awards have been the home for expressive musicians to show off their wildest fashion statements for the world. But thanks to the likes of Lady Gaga and Nicki Minaj, we feel like we’re in a golden era of completely wackadoodle VMA costumes — and we’re loving every second of it. As we gear up to witness a whole new round of eye-popping styles at Thursday night’s show, we thought we’d take a look back at the past 28 years of craziness. There are the ones everyone remembers, like Marilyn Manson’s corset, Lil’ Kim’s purple pasty, Christina Aguilera’s showgirl frock and Gaga’s infamous meat dress. Our research also unveiled some forgotten gems, like David Lee Roth’s Hawaiian chic, Big Boi’s Muppet pants, and a particularly horrendous pastel tie-dye thing that we hope Justin Timberlake regrets as much as we do. Flip through the gallery below at your own risk…
Ladies, stop your hysterical sobbing! Stop ripping down your Marilyn Manson posters and setting fire to your Antichrist Superstar t-shirt! Despite what your Google Alert for “Marilyn Manson engaged” might have found this morning, the shock rocker is still blissfully unattached. Life & Style first reported that Manson and heavily eye-linered actress/filmmaker Seraphim Ward were to be joined in unholy matrimony after only five weeks of dating. However, according to Manson’s publicist, “Marilyn Manson is not engaged to Seraphim Ward. He has never met her.” See, so there is still a chance for you two to end up together! Now let’s just calm down, and redraw those pentagrams on your bedroom wall where they belong.
As it turns out, Ward is actually betrothed…to Marilyn’s ex-bandmate Pogo, or as he was known while serving as Manson’s keyboardist, Madonna Wayne Gacy. “I am NOT engaged to Marilyn Manson, I look up to him and his work! I am with an x-bandmate, but it is NOT Manson!,” Ward wrote on Twitter this afternoon after a tweeted photo of her engagement ring ended up plastered across several media sites. “I am beyond words still. I admire Marilyn Mansion so much, but never have even dated him. I thought I was with someone that was my life partner, Pogo…until today…not cool and someone needs to move out asap!” You tell ‘em, girl! Never settle for second best! And by second best, we mean anyone who isn’t Marilyn Manson, which you probably could have guessed from the context!
Love is a beautiful thing … most of the time. But sometimes there are those couples that just sketch you out. Whether they wear vials of each other’s blood around their necks, sell their children to reality TV, or just overdo it with the PDA, some duos don’t fill you with that warm and fuzzy feeling! The rumors of Bobbi Kristina Brown’s hookup with her adopted brother Nick Gordon is just the latest in a long line of celebrity couples that give us the willies. Love is blind, but watching these sketchy couples sometimes made us wish we were, too. Check out the rest in the gallery below!
Say it all together now: At least it’s not Marilyn Manson. Did you say it? You know we can’t hear if you said it or not. You better have said it, because it looks like Evan Rachel Wood and on-again, off-again, possibly-on-again-forever boyfriend Jamie Bell might have just gotten engaged. The two were snapped exiting a bar in Hollywood yesterday accompanied by the giant rock glimmering at the end of Evan’s arm. Wood initially dated the Adventures of Tintin actor in 2005 when the two met on the set of Green Day’s “Wake Me Up When September Ends” video; the couple already has tattoos of the other’s first initials. Granted, Evan also has a Marilyn Manson tattoo on her thigh, but that’s over with! We never have to go to that dark place ever, ever again! Congratulations to the happy couple, if the rumors are true!
Marilyn Manson seems more likely to summon the hell hound Cerberus from the gates of Hades than sing “Cry Me a River” six times at a Las Vegas karaoke bar, but according to the New York Post, that is where the Antichrist Superstar found himself this past Halloween weekend. Accompanied by his model girlfriend, Lindsay Usich, Manson allegedly “playfuly waved” a knife at his fellow partygoers before yelling, “I am sorry I went nuts, but I’m a rock star!” Finding out how Manson has been keeping himself busy made us wonder how our other favorite goth celebrities are doing. Join us, won’t you, as we journey back to a simpler, more sinister time in a segment we’d like to call “Where Goth They Now?”
If you had asked us how one would follow-up a massive summer blockbuster hit, a Shia LaBeouf Marilyn Manson mash-up would not have been our first answer. Forget about the prosthetic breasts; when’s the last time Manson had a hit song? 1998? While on Live with Regis and Kelly, theTransformers 3: Dark of The Moon star describes visiting the kimono-wearing goth rocker to discuss “the visuals for his album.” As Shia explained to an incredibly excited Kelly Ripa, “In real life, too, he’s a real sweet guy. He’s an eccentric human being.” According his anecdote, Manson apparently lives in a lightless movie theater above a liquor store in West Hollywood. Yup, sounds about right.
LaBeouf also expanded his creative horizons by shooting Kid Cudi’s “Marijuana” video in Amsterdam during the Cannabis Cup, where a pink kimono wouldn’t seem nearly so ominous. While Shia didn’t get into the details about the music video he’s been working on for Manson, he will say the footage will likely “involve things I can’t even really say out loud, since this is morning television.” Are you sure you’re ready to say goodbye to that A-list money so soon, Shia? You’re going to need it to buy antique medical equipment. And light bulbs.
Tear up those sonnets you wrote and cancel Valentine’s Day, you guys. Its official: love is dead. After four tumultuous, guy-liner smeared years of romance, Marilyn Manson and Evan Rachel Wood are finally throwing in the filth towel.
Sources report that the couple separated last week, ending their eight-month engagement. Oh lord, we’re sorry if there are too many spelling errors in this post, but we can barely see through the tears! After Manson was spotted drowning his sorrows with several lovely ladies at L.A.’s Boudoir, a friend confirmed the split, saying, “They just broke off their engagement, and he needed a night out with friends.” We don’t blame him! We might need a night off with our many beautiful lady friends to recover from this shocking blow too.
The two lovebirds met at a party in 2006, when Wood was so young our hands are refuse to type her age, and have been on-again, off-again ever since. People familiar with Wood and Manson’s relationship know that the two have broken up and gotten back together so many times, it’s starting to remind us of our high school boyfriend. Which makes sense, considering Manson basically was Wood’s high school boyfriend. But this! We didn’t get an inkling that these two kooks wouldn’t make it/destroy each other in a big public blow-out. Now we’ll never have the fairy-tale wedding we were hoping for (The fairy-tale being Bluebeard)! We just hope Evan keeps in mind that not everyone gets the washed-up middle-aged vampire boyfriend of their dreams.
Now if you’ll excuse us, there is a Drop Dead Diva marathon we need to watch, and a black satin pillow that needs to be sobbed into. [Photo: Splash News Online]
