In a later statement by Ms. Miley Cyrus to E! Entertainment Television, she stated:
"I'm fully committed to 'Hannah Montana'. I *am* Hannah Montana. This is my cash cow as much as Disney's, and they'd have to pry me away from its golden teats."

Disney was unavailable for comment.

I don't feel like googling right now, but isn't the Joe Francis the Girls Gone Wild guy? What exactly does Michael Lohan considern a good influence on his daughter.

And evidently while a seemingly stable and possibly sobering relationship is deemed wrong because the people are of the same gender, explointing underage girls is perfectly ok.

I'm glad to know Michael Lohan hasn't gained an ounce of sense after getting out of prison. Sure, Joe Francis is a wonderful and respectful man, Mr. Lohan. It would have been too much to comprehend if both Michael and Lindsay got their acts together at the same time!

And I think the other deranged man on the list spells his name David Blaine not Blane.

Or, "Britney Speared"

Posted by: Anonymous | September 23, 2008 9:11 AM | Report abuse

Amy Winehouse and Britney both delayed their releases because they don't want them to drop the same day as "Chinese Democracy."


*John* damaged your hearing, Sean? Are you sure it wasn't all those times you listened to "Don't Worry Kyoko, Mummy's Only Looking For Her Hand In The Snow" through headphones with the volume turned up to 11?


Michael Lohan might think Sam is "disgusting," but he should put his revulsion aside for 24 hours. After all, today is Celebrate Bisexuality Day.


When is David Blane going to do something really interesting, like hang upside-down while encased in a block of ice that is anchored underwater in a glass box orbiting in space? That, I might watch. But only if we can shoot rockets at it.


Cops hunt for stolen Jamie Lynn Spears breastfeeding pix, "because," says US, "Jamie Lynn is a minor [and] selling the photos -- or buying them -- could constitute a violation of federal laws prohibiting pornography, according to TMZ."

Like TMZ, I'm not a lawyer, but if the sellers and the buyers are in legal jeopardy, wouldn't the photographer - i.e., Mr. Aldridge, also be in the same boat? After all, he would be the alleged 'pornographer' here, right?

Michael Lohan had it easy, all he had to do was stay quiet and out of the gossips magazines and compared to Dinah he came off as the relatively better parent.

But he just couldn't do it could he?

I like that both parents got worried when it appeared that they could no longer hold sway over their daughter, and they seem to think it's bad when Lindsay is sober and doing well for the first time in years. Michael Lohan is just the epitome of class.

Scud Stud settles lawsuit over film
Tuesday, September 23, 2008
The Associated Press

TORONTO -- Arthur Kent, the NBC reporter who became known as the Scud Stud during the first Gulf War, has settled a lawsuit against the makers of "Charlie Wilson's War" over footage used in the Tom Hanks-Julia Roberts movie.

Kent claimed in a lawsuit filed last April that Universal Studios and others violated his intellectual property rights by using without his consent segments of a 1986 news program he made about the Soviet Union's war in Afghanistan.

Terms of the settlement are confidential.

I would like to register a complaint against Celebritology and its commenters. In the comment by byoo ling on September 23, 2008 8:37 AM, she referred to 'Hannah Montana' as a "cash cow" with "golden teats."

I'd like to make Celebritology aware that "golden teats" is a registered trademark of Pamela Anderson Holdings, Inc. As I do not have Miley Cyrus suckling on my Income-Dispensing Funbags, I'd like to ask that Celebritology strike Ms. Cyrus's quote (and 'byoo ling's comment) from the record.

Miley seems to be suffering from the same delusion that has afflicted most of the other Disney teens stars like Hillary Duff. Once they become famous they start to believe their own p.r. hype and walk away from their fan base. Little do they realize that the nonstop promotion on Disney channel is the only reason they are famous. Hannah Montana is on at least 4 hours per day. Has anyone seen Hillary Duff lately. In her last movie she couldn't even get attention after putting a scorpion in her pants.

I just can't get enough of the Dane Cook/Dane Cook's dog's danecook eviction story. This is from Defamer:

After a judge ruled to evict Cook from his Hollywood apartment last month because nobody picked up after the comic's crap-happy dog, Dane has decided to fight the decision with one of the most bizarre legal arguments we've ever heard –- that [John] Belushi and [Steve] Martin's supernatural leftovers have a serious affect on his career.

Cook claims he only rented the apartment in the first place because his heroes, Belushi and Martin, used to live in the same complex back in the day, and according to the court docs filed in L.A. County Superior Court, he would suffer serious "mental and emotional" damage — and his career would crumble — if he was forced to leave. In the docs, Cook claims, "I know that the presence of those that have lived there before me affects me deeply and provides me with inspiration."

Cook went on to say, "In the same way that writers can get writer's block, comedians can really easily run out of ideas and 'stories'; I am extremely frightened that this will happen to me if I am forced to move out of my apartment. I've seen it happen to other comics, that something interferes with their connection to their creative muse, and it's destroyed careers."

While we can't say that we've seen any evidence of Steve Martin's dry comic influence in Cook's enthusiastic brand of stand-up, we hope the situation works itself out in his favor. If there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that Cook should spend a lot of time in his apartment — weeks, months, whatever works! Take as much time off as you need, Dane...after all, isn't that we've got DC-01 for?

Wow, hermespal, what a story. I mean, Dane Cook is already the enemy of many stand-up comedians for "borrowing" their ideas as it is.

Did he even live in the same APARTMENT as John Belushi or Steve Martin? If not, perhaps he can take strolls around the premises (leaving the dog at home) whenever he needs "inspiration" -- which, from the "comedy" I've seen, would be 24/7, so he'd also get in better shape. Bonus.

On the other hand, if Dane Cook had said he is inspired by the creative muse of JIM Belushi, I could completely see the connection....

1: "Cook claims he only rented the apartment in the first place because his heroes, Belushi and Martin, used to live in the same complex back in the day..."

So, Dane's not even in the actual apartment(s) either of them inhabited. Perhaps Mr. Cook's problem is that the most recent resident of *his* apartment used to "write" "comedy" for something like 'Everybody Loves Raymond,' leaving the comedic karma of Messrs. Belushi and Martin somewhat dissipated.

2: "Cranky old-timers" and "meaningless pissing contests," 'One night only'? Never meaningless. We'll be happy to demonstrate and undertake the next one in your favourite pair of shoes.

3: Possum, I prefer "hummina-hummina." And they'd be two QUANTA of Solace. But props to Ms. A, my pneumatic compatriot.

I don't do "Dancing With The Stars" (I just snark it), so I don't have a clue who that Brooke person is. What's her shoe size?

Genius Awards? Is this anything like the "Celebritology Honors F[an]-Art Competition"?

Nosy, first have a nice cold glass of white wine before you lie down and fan yourself. Better yet, have someone else work the fan for you. It's been one of those days.

Brooke has 4 kids, legs that hyperextend, and is evidently a model and TV show host.

MacArthur genii:

I wonder how they ever managed to overlook our Elias Howe!

No fan actually needed tonight/ I just opened up the sliding glass door and let the breeze in to work its magic through the screen. Ahhhh...

Her name is Brooke Burke (which still means nothing to me, but perhaps it does to other lizards).

Here's someone who watches Dancing with the Stars so Curmudgeon doesn't have to:

Also among this season's "celebs" is bootiously snarkable Kim Kardashian.

No DWTS for me. Ms. Snatchquatch and I got our "jollies" by making a huge grocery run last night. :-\> And here I am trapped in the office cave, editing a major software test plan.

bah!

When I get a chance, I'll do a bit of Googling of the MacArthur recipients. Now THAT would be interesting.

LIZ, PLEASE REMOVE SPAM AT 11:06 PM.

Has Celebritology "jumped the shark?" Can you identify the moment when it did?

I'm not sure if it's when Liz delved into politics, invoked the unholy name of Lindsey Lohan, or when the "On Parenting" folks discovered "Celebritology" in a bizarre hybrid experiment gone awry?
