Lacey Schwimmer, one of the professional dancers on Dancing With The Stars, left rehearsal yesterday in a little half shirt that showed off her nice little cut up abs. Now if the show could get Kirstie Alley to leave rehearsal in a half shirt, they could take pictures of her in black and white, then stamp a big red X over the last few and then try to sell you a DWTS sit up machine.

Katherine Heigl is weird looking

These pictures of Katherine Heigl having lunch with a friend yesterday in LA aren’t especially noteworthy, unless you have a forehead fetish, in which case they should be considered hard core pornography.

Captain America finally has a trailer

By brendon March 24, 2011 @ 1:44 PM

If you love America and/or sell steroids, then Captain America is probably the movie you’re most excited about this summer, and finally today there’s a full length trailer. It takes place during World War II, back when superheroes could just walk around shooting people, presumably bad ones. A Fine Time It Was!

Chris Brown gave another half assed apology

Chris Brown went on 106 and Park yesterday and apologized for his actions on Tuesday when he smashed a window in his dressing room at Good Morning America, but it turns out he should be the one getting an apology, because this was all a big set up.

“First of all, I just wanna apologize to anybody who was startled in the office, anybody who was offended or really disappointed in my actions, because I was disappointed with the way I acted.”
“A lot of people don’t know what went down, and obviously when I do shows or when I do interviews, we always send out a talking point sheet. As the interview proceeded, it was kinda thrown off. I was thrown off by it.”

“I felt like they told us this just so they could get us on the show so they can exploit me. So I took it very, very hard and I really kinda kept my composure throughout the whole interview, although you can see me upset, I kept my composure, I did my performance.”

“And when I got back [stage] I just let off steam. I didn’t physically hurt anyone, I didn’t try to hurt anyone, I just wanted to release the anger that I had inside me because I felt that I worked so hard for this music and I felt like people kept just trying to take it away from me.”

The reality of course is that he was not tricked in any way, and in fact Robin Roberts spoke to Brown before the interview and asked if it was ok to talk about Rihanna. He said it was, then went all apeshit anyway. Christ, it’s just Robin Roberts. It’s not like he was being questioned by the Stasi. If Chris Brown wants me to call him a “faggot”, he’s doing a great job lately.

Gwen Stefani gave $1,000,000 to Japan

Hollywood hasn’t done nearly as much to help Japan as it did to help Haiti, even though the disaster that struck Japan was about a hundred times worse, if for no other reason than Haiti sucked to begin with. Japan is awesome. They have hot girls, karate and robots. The only thing we should be building in Haiti is a wall around it. Anyway, point being, Gwen Stefani is really nice.

On Wednesday Stefani donated $1 million to Save the Children’s Japan Earthquake-Tsunami Children in Emergency Fund to help with recovery efforts in the devastated nation.
“I’ve been inspired by Japan for many years and have a true love, appreciation and respect for the Japanese people and their culture,” Stefani told Us.com in a statement. “The disaster in Japan is beyond heartbreaking, and I want to do anything I can to help. I would never be able to make a gesture like this without the love and support of all the fans over all these years.”
In addition to her donation, (her fashion line) L.A.M.B. will unveil a limited edition Harajuku Lovers T-shirt through nodoubt.com; all proceeds from sales will go to help in relief efforts.

It’s so nice to see a woman being this generous. A few nights ago I was in bed and thought I heard someone in the house and my girlfriend wouldn’t even go downstairs and check it out while I hid in the bathroom. Talk about selfish.

did Natalie Portman do her own dancing in ‘Black Swan’?

Natalie Portman won an Academy Award for her work as a ballet dancer in Black Swan, but some are saying she was a little too good, that there’s no way she could perfect moves in months that real dancers can’t do in years.  Her fiance Benjamin Millepied, who was also the choreographer for the movie, says that’s 15 percent nonsense.  

“It was so believable, it was fantastic, that beautiful movement quality,” he told the LA Times. “There are articles now talking about her dance double that are making it sound like [Sarah Lane, her body double] did a lot of the work, but really, she just did the footwork, and the fouettés, and one diagonal [phrase] in the studio. Honestly, 85% of that movie is Natalie.”

And the Huffington Post speaks to another dancer who worked on the movie who says essentially the same thing.  That it was mostly Natalie and she was really good.  The real question is who cares.  I assumed it wasn’t Natalie. That shit looks hard but I don’t care either way. It’s a movie. If I wanted to see literal reality I would just sit here and stare out the window.

Lindsay Lohan is going to trial

A few weeks ago it was reported that if Lindsay Lohan rejected the plea deal in her felony theft case and went to trial, she would then be in front of the toughest judge she’s ever faced, one who has “no mercy” for repeat offenders and who “would very, very likely sentence Lindsay to jail, ON THE SPOT.” As in, immediately. Up to 6 months. And that’s just for violating her probation, it’s not even for stealing the necklace. As opposed to taking the deal and going to jail for 18 days.

Always one to see the big picture, she of course rejected the plea and will go to trial.

Sources connected to Lindsay tell TMZ … Lindsay met with her lawyer, Shawn Holley Tuesday afternoon.  Holley laid out the options but left the decision to Lindsay, who said she’s firm about her innocence and wants to push it to the wall at trial.
Lindsay’s case will be assigned to Judge Stephanie Sautner — who’s considered tough but fair — and the preliminary hearing is set for April 22.
We have been saying Lindsay was crazy not to accept the plea deal, not because she’d be found guilty of grand theft … but the way the system is set up, Lindsay could be thrown in jail for the probation violation before her grand theft trial.

Lindsay of course thinks she’s above the law, and with good reason because she always has been, so she’ll consider it a real slap in the face if the judge really does send her to jail even before her trial. With any luck, the next thing she’ll consider a slap in the face is the slap in the face that her cellmate gives her.

Elizabeth Taylor died today

Elizabeth Taylor died early this morning of congestive heart failure. She was 79. People says…

On Feb. 11, it was announced that she had been in taken to Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles earlier that week for symptoms caused by congestive heart failure, and around 1:30 a.m. she “peacefully died there,” according to her publicist. “Though she had recently suffered a number of complications, her condition had stabilized and it was hoped that she would be able to return home. Sadly, this was not to be.”

Let’s not kid each other, most old movies suck, and if you disagree with that you’re probably some mincing gaywad who I wouldn’t like. It’s not like Hollywood even had to try back then. They were competing with books and zoos, and a dark theatre with air conditioning was gonna get you a blowjob a lot faster than reading or a goat. The rare exception to this is Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, which is not only a great movie, but Taylor was absolutely beautiful and fantastically talented. So you should go watch that if it seems weird that people still carry on about an actress who has barely acted since the early 80′s. It will all make sense after that.
