Lily Allen was one of the performers at last night’s celebration of the 275th anniversary of Coram, the oldest children’s charity in the world. Naturally, the only way to celebrate raising money to help kids is by wearing a flesh-toned top with no bra so it looks like your breasts are on full display. I’m not knocking it, of course, because there’s no better strategy in making old white men give out free money than by having naked women dance for it. They could just make a fun game out of it next time, and maybe have a more voluptuous singer like Katy Perry slowly remove her clothes as she performs, while the rich people throw money at her. Then, all of the really sick and dying kids could go out on stage and race each other in picking all the money up. However much they can hold is what goes toward saving their lives. Charity really doesn’t need to be so boring and proper all the time.
English actress Emma Rigby is in Miami today filming a movie called ‘Plastic’, and, FUN FACT, Emma is married to Alfie Allen from ‘Game of Thrones’ (this guy), who is Lily Allens little brother. So, if you know her song “Alfie“, where she’s worried that her little brother will never get laid because all he does is sit in his room all day smoking weed and playing XBox, yes, it’s about him. Theon Greyjoy.
SECOND FUN FACT: I used to know a girl in high school named Emma, and she had a blue bikini too. I wonder if she’s related to this Emma Rigby girl.
Some people will no doubt get all sanctimonious today and criticize Lily Allen for going to The Box in London last night and then stumbling out at 4am, presumably drunk, but here’s an interesting counterpoint; fuck those people. Lily Allen is awesome. I love Lily Allen. I love ‘the Fear‘, I love that she would do a cover of something as goofy as ‘Womanizer‘, I love that she runs around topless, I love that she does anal, I love that she’s been calling Madonna irrelevant for at least 6 years, and I love that she was one of the only ones to tell Perez Hilton to fuck off back when most famous people were scared of that Frankenstein-headed jackass.
And who knows, maybe she didn’t get drunk. Maybe she was drugged. Maybe someone shot her with one of those darts like in movies. Were you at the Box last at 4am? Well then you don’t really know what happened, now do you!
KIM KARDASHIAN – was accused of cheating on her fiance after an NFL player named Brett Lockett told InTouch they’d been having a “physical relationship” for 5 months, but now he admits he’s never actually met her face to face. His dick must be huge. (e!)
SUPER 8 – was number 1 at the box office with $37M, because movie theaters don’t give refunds. (ew)
BOOK OF MORMON – is the musical written by Matt Stone and Trey Parker of ‘South Park’ (amazon has the cast recording on sale for $1.99), and last night it won 9 of the 14 Tony awards it was nominated for, including Best Musical and Best Director for Parker. The other “director” nominees told the actors to face the back wall and just wing it. It was foolish direction in hindsight. (people)
LILY ALLEN – got married this weekend, then announced that she’s 4 months pregnant, then took wedding pictures in a graveyard, yet still got upstaged by her older sister Sarah Owen, who wore this slutty dress. At least according to me. I love sluts! (sun, splash, wenn)
CONAN O’BRIEN – will host the premiere of his new TBS show tonight, and he says one thing to look for on the new show is him forgiving Andy Richter: “Because you know it was him that f—ed up. I was doing fine before he came back.” I also heard that Richter was the Beltway Sniper. (tbs, ew)
LILY ALLEN – suffered a miscarriage last week, and over the weekend she was hospitalized with a blood disease called septicemia, which “accounts for tens of thousands of fatalities per year.” Her life is so tragic all of a sudden, she’s like one of those women in the bible. (la times)
MICHAEL JACKSON - has a new record coming out in December, and the first single was released today. It’s a terrible, terrible song, but it’s Michael Jackson so they’re gonna sell it anyway. In 10 years they’re gonna dig him up, take his femur and play his ribs like a xylophone and call it ALL NEW MICHAEL JACKSON MUSIC!!! (mj.com)
LILY ALLEN – has suffered a miscarriage for the second time in three years. This weekend she lost her baby 6 months into her pregnancy. In January 2008, she suffered a similar fate after just one month. (the sun)
COURTENEY COX – told Australia’s TV Week that she is not getting a divorce from David Arquette. “Still, Cox acknowledges that she and her husband of 11 years are no longer on the same page. ‘Sometimes you just realize, Wow, we actually have grown apart,’ she says.” And other times you realize, “Oh hell, I didn’t make him sign a pre-nup.” (people)
BROOKLYN DECKER – was also at Heidi Klums Halloween party. What was she dressed up as? Nobody cares! (splash)
