Here on the East Coast, the Smash Mouth cut “Walking on the Sun” has been our personal anthem for the past week. Yes, it is HOT. Summer in the city (or anywhere) can be pretty grueling, especially when sweaty shirtless guys get shoved up against us on a crowded subway. If you can’t stand the heat, it seems like the best method is to just stay in a dark, air-conditioned room and watch movies!
So, how awesome was Aaron Paul hamming it up at the Emmys this year? The Breaking Bad star just got even got cooler in our eyes due to certain updates on his Twitter account. Consider the awesomeness of the picture above. Hell yeah, it’s Aaron and Pierce Brosnan at a Radiohead concert in London! The two actors are currently filming A Long Way Down — an adaptation of the darkly comedic Nick Hornsby novel — together in England and must have become pretty chummy on set, as the photograph indicates. Aaron’s caption for the image reads, “Watching Radiohead in london with James Bond himself!! Love you Pierce. Yeah bitch!! Yeah Science!!”
But that’s when things get a little conky. His later tweets are pretty strange, because it seems like he got into trouble for … dancing. Yes, dancing. At a concert. What just happened there. His first tweet reads, “I’m proud I almost got kicked out of this stadium for dancing to Radiohead! What the hell else are u going to do at a concert?” It wasn’t like this was some run-of-the-mill concert arena, as well. They were watching the band at the O2 arena, which is massive, so we can’t understand why authorities would give him grief over busting a move? Unless he’s a really, really bad dancer, but that’s still doesn’t give anyone permission to throw a Mr. or Ms. Two Left Feet out, does it. His next tweet makes his feelings about the evening pretty clear. Read below and commiserate.

We’ll give you the juice about who was at Coachella this weekend in a minute, but first we’d like to give props to the very lovely Emma Watson. It was her birthday yesterday and what better way to celebrate than at the festival? Actually, she did find a better way to celebrate — canoodling with a fine mystery man as you can see in the photograph on the left. Happy birthday, indeed. Next up, we got Katy Perry who has traded her bright blue Smurf hair for a darker black with deep purple highlights. She pulls off the hippie headband, doesn’t she? Someone else wearing said headband (with fewer clothes on) was Paris Hilton, who is now fully exploring her music festival avatar thanks to boyfriend, Afrojack.
Someone who really can’t carry off hippie, but is one regardless, is Vanessa Hudgens, who wore sheer thigh-highs for some odd reason. She attended the festival with boyfriend Austin Butler. Other couples included squee-worthy Ian Somerhalder and Nina Dobrev, Fergie and Josh Duhamel and Kate Bosworth with Michael Polish. Two faces we didn’t expect to see were Dylan McDermott and Pierce Brosnan. For the full list of expected and unexpected stars, get thee to the gallery below.

There’s a certain kind of celebrity that flies from its native habitat of New York, Los Angeles or London to breed, bath in warm ocean waters or forage for food and drink along remote tropical beaches. A newly reunited Jude Law and Sienna Miller fall into this category. The on-off-on couple spent the holidays in the Caribbean, as did Rihanna and Marc Jacobs (not together, of course). On the Pacific side, there have been two very rare spottings in Hawaii: Pierce Brosnan with his wife and a shirtless Jeremy Piven.
A different breed has been spotted playing in colder climates this holiday season, including Katy Perry and Russell Brand, now engaged after a pre-Christmas London rendezvous of shopping, sledding and most likely sessions of baby-making practice. But Aspen is the real hot gathering spot in the snow this year, with sightings of Mariah Carey, Antonio Banderas, Paris Hilton and Leann Rimes. [Photo: Splash News Online]
It begins! The 2009-2010 awards season kicked off with a bang at the 13th Annual Hollywood Awards last night in LA. Among the winners were Robert DeNiro, Hilary Swank, Julianne Moore, Carey Mulligan, Jeremy Renner, Bradley Cooper and Gabby Sidibe. Taking home Best Director was Kathryn Bigelow for The Hurt Locker—could she be the first female filmmaker to win an Oscar in the category?
See who else attended in the gallery below.

Sooner or later, all men start to look like Jack Nicholson (pictured above, right). Those comfy shirts, that useful flat cap shielding your eyes from the sun, that, “I can eat what the hell I want and women still love me” belly. It’s a good place to be. But imagine our surprise when we saw that Pierce Brosnan (left) had already succumbed to The Jack look. Hell, he’s not Bond anymore and life’s just more fun this way. We applaud you!

Today is Earth Day 2009! When it comes to protecting the environment, some celebrities talk the talk, but some really walk the walk. From sitting in a tree to preserve a garden to filling their rides with biodiesel fuel, these celebrities really go the extra mile to keep things green. [Photos: Splash News Online]
Despite denying the claims months ago, the buzz keeps getting louder that George Clooney will make a cameo in one of the final episodes of ER. Frankly, we’re surprised he’d bother—actors who graduate from the boob tube to silver screen stardom don’t usually care to return. Mork & Mindy‘s Robin Williams may be up for the occasional crime drama guest spot, but most celluloid heroes are happy to keep their TV appearances to talk shows, SNL—maybe The Simpsons if they’re slumming. Here are ten leading men we’d be shocked to see follow in George Clooney’s (rumored) footsteps.
It seems like Universal is aiming to turn Mamma Mia! into a cult hit among the sing-along crowd. In order to boost the film’s profile (and box office grosses) over Labor Day, the studio plans to present Mamma Mia! The Sing-Along Edition in select theaters nationwide so you can finally let your inner Pierce Brosnan out.
While it’s not as campy as Rocky Horror or as beloved as, say, the now-defunct Buffy musical, this could just be the hook the film needed to take it beyond its moderate summer hit status. No word on what the audience participation might include, but we suggest that S.O.S. pads get in on the product tie-ins during the aural massacre that is Pierce Brosnan’s rendition of that ABBA song.
