LADY GAGA – will play herself on ‘The Simpsons’, “to cheer up a dejected Lisa through the power of speech, song, and a flash mob.” The message being: if you’re feeling low, try annoying the hell out of people. (ew)
WILL SMITH AND JADA PINKETT – were reportedly broken up, but this morning Wills son Trey tweeted that it wasn’t true, and now they’ve issued a statement saying, “Although we are reluctant to respond to these types of press reports, the rumors circulating about our relationship are completely false. We are still together, and our marriage is intact.” Oohh. “Intact”. What a romantic word. I guess things really are going great. “My wife is very suitable”, Will went on to explain. (twitter, access hollywood)
MEGAN FOX – confirmed that she’s having the tattoo on her forearm of Marilyn Monroe removed, saying, “She was a negative person, she was disturbed, bipolar. I do not want to attract this kind of negative energy in my life.” Oh relax Megan. It’s not Ed Gein for Christs sake. (us)
BEN AFFLECK AND JENNIFER GARNER – are expecting their third child to go along with their daughters Violet, 5, and Seraphina, 2. No word yet on if its a boy or a girl, or what stripper/wish granting cartoon mouse they’ll name them after. (people)

Megan Fox looked absolutely terrific yesterday in a super short gray dress on the set of ‘This is 40’, although I’m sure tons of message board fatties and nerds will still act like she sucks. Speaking of which, here she answering a question about me, and how she keeps our secret weekend getaways exciting. It’s too bad that Brian had to find out this way.

Megan Fox went on her facebook this weekend and posted a picture of her, Jason Segal and whoever the hell Chris O’Dowd is in a pool on the set of ‘This Is 40′, a movie directed by Judd Apatow starring Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann who play the same characters they played in ‘Knocked Up’.
I’ll never understand why people make fun of Megan Fox yet Kristen Stewart somehow gets a pass. Despite what some internet dorks say, Megan is a better than average actress, whereas Kristens stupid face is so expressionless and blank you could play racquetball against it.
I wasn’t aware there was a rumor like this, but Megan Fox went on her facebook page last night and posted 4 pictures showing her furrowing her brow and pointing out lines in her face to dispute the rumor that she’s had botox. In fact she still denies she’s had any work done (despite the fact that she looks nothing like she did 10 years ago). So I guess the secret to proving that rumors are false are to make up ones that you can easily disprove. Like the one about Megan that claims I won’t love her all night long, baby.
‘Transformers: Dark of the Moon’, has been out for 8 full days now, and it’s still doing incredible business, unless of course you compare it to ‘Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen’. At this point, ‘Fallen’ had made $239 million at the box office, while ‘Dark of the Moon’ now sits at $198. That’s a drop of around $41 million.
It would be overly simplistic to say this is all because Megan Fox was replaced by Rosie Huntington Whitely, but complicated theories are for fags, so that’s what I’m going to say.
Not only is Fox (seen here in her brand new Armani campaign) a thousand times hotter than Whitely, but now we’re expected to believe Sam Witwicky has dated two international supermodels in a row, which is somehow the dumbest premise even in a movie about fights between shape-shifting robots from outer space.
No doubt fueled by it’s juvenile cheap shots at Megan Fox (like Shia telling his parents he “moved on to something better” or one of the robots saying his last girlfriend was “mean”), ‘Transformers 3’ had the biggest opening day of 2011 and is doing incredibly well by any definition.
Unless you compare it to the opening day for ‘Transformers 2’, the one with Megan Fox, in which case it’s an embarrassing failure.
E! cites this list of the all time opening days on Box Office Mojo and says…
In its first full day in theaters, Transformers: Dark of the Moon grossed an estimated $37.3 million, good for sixth place on the list of all-time Wednesday openers.
But as you’ll notice, Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is in second place, with a far bigger, far fatter $62 million debut.
And that’s despite the fact that 60 percent of ticket sales were for 3D, where average ticket prices are $10.85 and $14.85 for IMAX, as compared to the $7.50 they paid to see the second one.
It’s also despite the fact that ‘Dark of the Moon’ is actually pretty good. I’m as amazed as anyone but I liked it. The good news is they can still match the weekend total for ‘Revenge of the Fallen’, as long as they consider a weekend to be 17 days long.
