Not content with being known to the world as a curvaceous, platinum actress, Scarlett Johansson is branching out into the world of singing. For her first album, she’s tackled the Tom Waits songbook, and for the first video, she’s created a bleached out, weary look at a day in the life of a starlet. Fittings, make-up, commercials for something, visiting with author Salman Rushdie and forlornly looking out the window are the action in “Falling Down”….tough life!
Anybody else think this has a Lost in Translation feel to it, except this time she’s the worn-down Bill Murray character?
What’s better than having Radiohead in your living room? Well, nothing. But second to that, we’re bringing an intimate clip to your computer screen from the band’s upcoming show Radiohead_In Rainbows_From the Basement, airing on VH1 on May 3rd at midnight. Above, the band play the gorgeously haunting “Reckoner,” shot in a studio as the band prepare to hit the road on a massive world tour.

BritBrit may not be ready for primetime, but she’s heading back to the set of How I Met Your Mother for another guest spot. [DListed]
Holy crap – Slash from Guns N’ Roses has two sweet children. [Seriously? OMG]
Jay-Z steps in to defend LeBron James after Wizards guard DeShawn Stevenson starts some beef with the b-ball star. [Crunk+Disorderly]
Baby Mama star/funniest lady ever Amy Poehler is a baby mama herself. Best movie promotion ever! Also, congrats. [Us]
John Mayer might be tappin’ Jen Aniston, which is awesome only because we want to use the name “Maniston.” [People]
Bikini-clad Brooke Hogan and her boy friend (boyfriend?) get frisky in a pool. [Egotastic]
Damn. Mischa Barton has no career AND no fashion taste. At least she’s got that DUI under her belt! [I'm Not Obsessed]
Heidi, Heidi, Heidi. Seriously, you change your boobs and face, but you can’t even change your clothes? After much gossipy fanfare, Heidi – and her boy-troll Spencer – showed up at the White House Correspondents dinner this weekend in Washington DC wearing the same exact outfit she had donned at an appearance earlier in the week. For shame! We’ve got the photographic evidence above as proof: on the left is our plastic heroine this weekend, and on the right she’s hawking her clothes at Kitson in LA, just a week earlier! You’d think she would have learned something while selling out in Hollywood.
We’ve got pics of all the other well-dressed stars who showed up at the White House this weekend below. For some shots of Heidi and Spencer desecrating the American flag at national monuments in our nation’s capital, click here! Don’t say we didn’t warn you.
(Spencer & Heidi, Lauren Conrad, Rosario Dawson, Joel McHale, Jenny McCarthy, Donatella Versace, Ashlee Simpson, Pete Wentz, Ed Westwick, the Jonas Brosthers, Will.i.am, Pamela Anderson and President George W. Bush)
Mimi’s been known to sport some bling in her day (butterfly rings, anyone?) but this rock – worn noticeably on her engagement finger this weekend – is makin’ a statement! I mean seriously, who could she possible be engaged too? The number one singer has been linked to Nick Cannon recently, but he’s a newly single guy who can’t possibly be looking to settle down right this second. Our guess: she’s engaged to herself. I mean seriously, once you’ve been with Mariah, how could you be with anyone else?
A couple of weeks ago, we asked you to write four lines of poetry for a chance to win tickets to Madonna’s April 30 concert in New York. We received a whopping 7,669 poems. Some are funny. Some are serious. We wish that we could give all of you a pair of tickets, but then Madge would have to move her show from the intimate Roseland Ballroom to Madison Square Garden. Here are the talented (and lucky) winners.
Jordan, from Illinois
I distinctly remember a road trip reflection
And the moving, grooving sounds of an Immaculate Collection
I’d cry “Track 15!” like a backseat DJ
Letting my Baptist minister father know his son was so gay
Bradford, from New Jersey
Through the years worship forced me to wear everything from jelly bracelets to Kabballah strings
I sported some really bad roots and even rocked some tooth bling
Blew my paychecks on Pilates to look lean and mean
But through it all, Madonna is and always will remain my mother_@#_ing Queen
Our girl Deelishis is back in the pages of Smooth with these brand-new photos that hit the web this morning (She showed of plenty of skin the last time she was in Smooth – click for the pics!) . We’re loving the Flashdance theme and we’re thrilled that the Flavor of Love 2 winner has taken her passion (for posin’ for sexy pics) and made it happen. Check out more of the kinda NSFW pics below (she’s clothed, but there’s a lot of skin!). [YBF]
There’s nothing like having the world find out that you cheated on your jailed husband with your manager’s assistant; but it’s far worse when the source of the news is your DAD. That’s the sitch Amy Winehouse has found herself in this morning, but she’s probably too drunk/stoned/crazy to notice. Papa Winehouse is super pissed about his daughter’s violent outbursts last week that landed her in jail (see pic above), so he’s speaking out to the only people who will listen to him – the tabloids.
After ranting on about Amy’s current health crisis, Mitch Winehouse dished the dirt on Amy’s alleged romance with her manager/babysitter, Alex Haynes. “I am shocked. His job was to look after Amy. I asked him to stay with Amy while she was recording at Henley. This was not part of the job! I don’t like infidelity. But Alex could be the victim in all this. I can’t ever imagine Alex seducing Amy. He looks like Clark Kent. It was clearly the other way round and Amy had her wicked way with him. But I would never dream of putting those two together.”
Will Amy divorce her jailbird for a super hero? Only time – and hopefully rehab – will tell! [NOTW]
OMG OMG OMG. Hannah Montana ain’t so G-Rated anymore! Miley Cyrus, the wholesome teen with a rebellious streak (and billions of dollars) has posed – draped only in a sheet – for legendary photog Annie Leibovitz. The pics, which were taken for an article in Vanity Fair, are pretty provocative for a 15-year old whose average fan has yet to hit puberty. Her bosses at the Disney Channel are clearly pissed off by the sexy shots, as their recently released statement reveals: “Unfortunately as the article suggests, a situation was created to deliberately manipulate a 15-year-old in order to sell magazines.”
Miley denounced the photos, alleging that she thought the pics would be “artistic” but having seen them is now “embarrassed.” But the singer apparently loved the photo when it was taken on-set, as did her parents and other handlers who were also present, claims Vanity Fair. ?Miley?s parents and/or minders were on the set all day,” the mag said. “Since the photo was taken digitally, they saw it on the shoot and everyone thought it was a beautiful and natural portrait of Miley.?
Vanity Fair, FTW! Poor little Miley. During these tough times of sexy scandal, we hope our star is looking deep within herself and asking that all-important question that can surely guide her along this bumpy road - “What would Britney do?” [DListed]
The last episode of Celebrity Fit Club was so good, it made Sommore do THIS:
