Jessica Simpson is supposedly getting her own sloppy seconds, as she’s rumored to be back with comedian Dane Cook (pictured together in 2006, right). They made some unfunny movie together last year and apparently got romantic on the set, and after a year apart and some John Mayer booty calls, Jess is back in the funny man’s beefy arms. The two recently took in a Prince concert at Teddy’s in LA, and like everyone else in Hollywood, they canoodled!!!
John Mayer turned sour backstage at the environmentally fixated Live Earth concert this weekend when People asked the croaker-songwriter about his environmentally sound habits. Said John:
"What is my eco-sin? I don’t know if that is that provocative a question for me. I don’t know. I’m still trying to figure out what my motivation is ? what is the positive side to the things that I could do? …If you want to peg me as not being entirely eco-friendly, you’ll win. [However,] we have a tour, which is inherently carpooling."
He’s too smart not to be kidding around with that last comment, right? Comparing something as ultimately unnecessary as touring to something as useful as carpooling is like saying that burning Styrofoam is recycling because the fumes get you high. Whatever, though, at least he’s otherwise honest about his shortcomings.
As a bonus, I’ve put a bunch of pictures of John performing at Live Earth under the jump. As in the picture at the top of this post, he’s rocking serious guitarface (which is really just six strings and a pick away from sexface). Anyway, they’re all too awesome — it was impossible to choose just one. Enjoy. [People / Image credit: Getty]
It’s time for folk fans to get excited: The trailer for I’m Not There, director Todd Haynes’ Bob Dylan biopic, has hit the web. The film stars seven actors as the music legend including Richard Gere, Christian Bale, Heath Ledger and Cate Blanchett (no, we’re not making that up — Haynes provides equal opportunities for fantastic actors of all genders). If this clip is any indication, this movie’s going to be beautiful, even if it’s rumored to have been pushed back until 2008. It’s enough to make us want to petition The Weinstein Company to get it released faster.
Avril Lavigne isn’t taking the recent accusations against her of song stealing sitting down. The young singer is crazy pissed – like any good punk would be – and has posted a scathing response to the drama on her personal website. The Canadian writes:
"You may have heard some news that two guys who wrote for some band
from the 1970s I have never in my life heard of called the "Rubinoos"
are trying to sue me. They have a song called "I Want To Be Your
Boyfriend" that has no musical similarities to the song "Girlfriend"
that Luke Gottwald and I wrote together. They claim that a small part
of the lyrics are the same and are saying that I took these from them.
I had never heard this song in my life and their claim is based on 5
And about songwriter Chantal Kreviazuk:
"Chantal has also made false accusations about my writing skills. I
am so over this topic…My decision to discontinue working with Chantal after co-writing
together on my second record was simply based on the fact that we had
no hits together. That is why her name is not on this record, despite
her numerous attempts to be included, which were always denied. From my
perspective this is a clear case of bitterness. Chantal is upset that
she didn’t get to be a part of my record."
Well, even if her songwriting skills are in question, there’s no doubt at all that the tiny starlet is damn good at sh*t talking.
It’s so awesome that Clay Aiken has been
out and about recently because each and every report of the his behavior allows me to play my favorite game: How Is That Not Gay? It’s a nonstop brainteaser as long as the self-described straight man is in public and, like, doing stuff.
Today’s game of How Is That Not Gay involves an alleged bust-up on an airplane Saturday morning between Clay and a fellow passenger (who, in fact, wasn’t a fellow at all). An FBI special agent reported that a spat broke out between a male former American Idol contestant (gee, wonder how many of them were on the same flight as Clay) and a woman, after said contestant put his foot on her arm rest. In response, she shoved him and then flight crew stepped in. Clay later that day told a concert audience that he was beat up by a girl, crying behind his laughter, no doubt.
A physical altercation with a girl? How is that not gay? How much do you want to bet that what went really down was something like the olden days of France, when men would slap each other with their gloves and say, y’know, "D’Artagnan! How dare you talk to me like that, you!," and smack ‘em? [AP/Yahoo! / Image credit: Getty]
Earlier this weekend it was reported that the rap diva had gone missing after boarding a flight to London on June 29th. Apparently her family and friends were freaking out that Foxy, real name Inga (WTF?), was long gone, lost amongst the Brits with only her entourage in tow. This occurred only days after she was apparently the target of a Brooklyn robbery and beatdown at the hands of some crazed lady friends that resulted in the destruction of her hair weave. You can mess with a girl’s Louis Vuitton purse, but please - not the hair!
But a PerezHilton reader spotted Foxy on Friday, July 7th, hosting the Urban Music Awards in NYC – and there are pics to prove it. Thank goodness she’s not lost somewhere in the Chunnel! But the question remains – did Foxy really head overseas or was it all just a stunt to attract attention to her floundering hip hop career? Maybe she was just going to get her weave fixed up in the UK – we hear Amy Winehouse is really good at styling hair.

The starlet and her sons spent Sunday morning praising the Lord at a Bel Air church. Maybe Britney’s serious when she says she’s praying for her mom? [X17]

Each new day brings a new batch of cringe-worthy stories from the tumultuous world of Britney Spears. Today’s tidbit is that the starlet has reportedly changed her will, ensuring that if Britney dies, her mom Lynne will not gain custody of her two sons. That honor, as well as her entire estate, is now left to her little sister Jamie-Lynn, 15.
Britney must be feeling good about her big decision because she hit the town in a new Amy Winehouse inspired hairdo. Pics show her out with a hunky dude, but sadly he’s just her bodyguard. Never fear – Britney does have a boyfriend, he’s just currently on bed rest recovering from bowel surgery. He sounds super hot already! Luckily he’s still able to talk to The National Inquirer. Real estate investor John Sundahl claims he’s Brit’s new flame, and tells the rag, ?When I was in the hospital, she sat with me and held my hand all night
long. She even sang and hummed to me while I was practically
The only thing more romantic than getting a bedside lullaby after bowel surgery is dishing about it after to a tabloid. Smooth move, man! That’ll win her over for sure.
Us Weekly has put Nicole Richie on their latest cover, announcing "Yes, She’s Pregnant!" Until we hear it from her hungry lips, we can’t totally believe this rumor is fact. But the mag isn’t alone in its assertions. A spy spotted the bony lady and boyfriend Joel Madden browsing wedding gowns at an LA boutique. E Online also reports that they hit up luxe baby shop Petit Tr?sor to buy a white blanket. Because if she’s 12 weeks pregnant, her baby will need a blankie in 5 months. Planning that far ahead makes complete sense!
The Simple Life star is also reportedly afraid of going through her pregnancy alone, which is set to happen when her rocker beau (or should we say "future husband?") heads out on the road next for publicity interviews and an August tour with Justin Timberlake. A source tells 24/Sizzler, "She?s really dreading the time away from him, but she?s hoping to get
some sympathy by being portrayed as the ?pregnant victim,? while her
man is away. The whole thing is classic Nicole." Or classically crazy! Anything to get the public to like you after driving the wrong way down the freeway high on prescription drugs.
