Spectacularly pregnant Jennifer Garner was out in Santa Monica yesterday, and at first her little bunny iPhone cover may seem cute, and a typically Jennifer Garner thing to have, but it’s actually made from 4 real bunnies. JENNIFER GARNER IS CONTROVERSIAL!

it’s the 2012 Academy Award nominees

The 84th Academy Award nominees were announced early this morning in LA, with Martin Scorsese’s ‘Hugo’ headlining things with 11 nominations, followed by silent movie ‘The Artist’ getting 10. Other things that jump out are ‘Drive’ getting shut out, Michael Shannon not getting a nomination for ‘Take Shelter’, the Dean of Greendale Community College nominated as a writer for best adapted screenplay, and two nominations for ‘Bridesmaids’ (supporting actress and screenplay).

Overall this list is pretty shitty. It’s boring, AND the show has Billy Crystal for a host. Which means I will have shot a flaming arrow into my TV by about the 20 minute mark.

Seal is still wearing his wedding ring

This won’t make a ton of sense, but yesterday, just a few hours after Heidi Klum and Seal announced that they were getting a divorce and ending their 7 year marriage, Seal was wearing his wedding ring and saying how awesome Heidi Klum is on the Ellen Degeneres show:

“Yes, I am still wearing my ring. I think it’s just pretty much a token of how I feel about this woman. We have eight years.
“Just because we have decided to separate doesn’t necessarily mean you take off your ring and you’re no longer connected to that person.
“We will be connected in many ways ‘til the rest of our lives.”

It’s a good thing Seal has always seemed so dignified, because that could have easily sounded creepy instead of romantic. Especially with him looking so, I don’t know, so “tribal”. I’d be scared to date Heidi next. He looks like he’d eat your heart to gain your powers.

Cameron Diaz is scaring the French now

Cameron Diaz traveled all the way to Paris for the 2012 Versace Spring/Summer show earlier today, all part of Paris Fashion Week. Perhaps coincidentally, reports of the loup garou, a fabled French monster that eats the bones of children, has skyrocketed in the past 24 hours.

Britney is getting her own money as a wedding gift

Britneys Spears father, who is either very generous or too cheap to buy a real present, will give up his conservatorship as a wedding gift to Britney, allowing her full control over her finances (and an empire estimated at around $200 million) for the first time in 5 years.

Her father Jamie has been conservator of her affairs since her life spiralled out of control in 2007.
But as a special gift to mark her upcoming wedding to fiance Jason Trawick, Britney’s father is asking a judge to halt the conservatorship.

When Jason heard the news, he sat back in a big leather chair, tapped the tips of his fingers together and said, “Eexxcellent. Everything is going exactly as planned”, then laughed maniacally.

Vanessa Hudgens erotic awakening continues

Vanessa Hudgens and her boyfriend Austin Butler were still in Hawaii this weekend, romantically holding each other in the water and watching the sunset. It looked like an ad for Sandals. Or condoms.

Heidi Klum is single

Heidi Klum and Seal have had 4 kids during their seemingly happy 7 year marriage, but now those kids are orphans or whatever because Klum and Seal are getting a divorce. Last night, they released this controversial statement…

“We have had the deepest respect for one another throughout our relationship and continue to love each other, but our six-year-old son Henry still wets the bed. It’s so embarrassing! We can’t even have his friends over anymore because he’ll pee on them. I don’t know what his deal is. He must like it, the little pervert. Does sham-wow make sheets? Because we’d buy some. Anyway, this led to a lot of tension in the house and that led to fights. So thanks a lot you little dick! Way to ruin our family.”

Wow, nice job Henry. Hey look, your mom is crying again, is this what you wanted, are you happy now?

Steven Tyler is patriotic

By brendon January 23, 2012 @ 8:51 AM

They say that the national anthem is one of the hardest songs to sing, and yesterday at the AFC Championship game between New England and Baltimore Steven Tyler proved them right. He better watch out. Ray Lewis has stabbed people for less.
