I never get drunk to the point of throwing up. But I get very talkative." -- Gwyneth Paltrow, who may have finally explained GOOP.

So GOOP is one long drunken email/blog post? Awesome.

And I heard on the radio this morning that Coldplay's producer wants the band to record some songs sans Chris Martin, saying that Viva la Vida was good but they could do better. HA!

That dress on ScarJo is gorgeous. I like the brown hair, but not in that cut (it's the same as Priscilla Presley). If it had more volume, it'd look better.

That Angelina Jolie spoof was pretty funny, probably the only funny part of the show.

I just don't understand why all you people just can not accept my help, when all I want to do is try and improve your lives by showing you everything I do. All I want to do change the world in my own small, macrobiotic ways. I have all this free time because Chris is in his panic room, not recording any new music. Why can't you all just do what I suggest, can't you see how it will make your own, non-celebrity lives better? Why do you hate me? I have an Oscar from the one good film I did 10 years ago. Let me just distill for you all the life lessons I've gained from having the world handed to me on a silver platter. Please, please, just let me make your life better.

Chris, get out of your panic room and get me some more wine!

Scarlett is better off blonde. The dress looks like upholstery for a sofa or maybe a bedspread. Not good.

Oh ScarJo, honey, you are a radiant, luminous blonde. Blonde looks good on you, and you make blonde look good. People know you're a serious actress already - you're Woody Allen's most recent muse, for Pete's sake!

Go back to blonde.

I suspect Erykah is going to name that kid Twitter or Social Media.

Why are Ashton and Demi apologizing? You had a problem with it, you put it out there, now let it rest. Jeez.

I actually like ScarJo's dress but I'd like to know where her husband is I never see him anymore.

Gwyneth, you gave us GOOP are you really surprised that your not always in our hearts? By the way, your latest statement does nothing to help your cause.

Scarjo, like the original Scarlett, shows us you can go couture in a recession.

Ask for that epidural early girls and you too can continue to twitter and text during labor.

Kutcher says its ok Michael cause everyone does it, so I forgive you.

What part of the Lindsay Lohan is a smoking, drinking, hissy fit-having mess is a rumor?

Um, is Gwyneth being paid by Disney for that Elle cover? I thought she looked like a Hidden Mickey in that shirt...

Oh, and will someone please volunteer to style Jennifer Connelly? I mean, she's a gorgeous, gorgeous woman, and she always wears something that just...isn't....right. Whoever helped out Ginnifer Goodwin though gets a gold star - THAT's how dress for brunette.

Apparently Demi and Ashton are taking advice from Brangelina now -- make sure the media knows every little thing you do.

Daniellyn on Larry King Live? I can just imagine the diaper changing that night on the show.

On what planet is taking your toddlers on tour a good idea? It's not like she will be spending quality time with them. Plus, doesn't K-Fed have primary custody?

Gwynnie, we hate you because your intentions are not good. Your intentions are to make everything about you and how you look at the world. That's self-centered, not selfless.

OK, I hate myself (again) for going to a TMZ link, but copy like this nearly makes it worth it (this time):

"When Miley Cyrus transformed herself into Hanoi Montana for this photo -- she had to know it would turn into bad fortune."

Bravo. Let's start an article about a stereotype controversy with a pun ("Hanoi Montana") and a stereotype ("bad fortune"). Do I laugh or wince?

Does it involve putting one's left hand on red and right leg on yellow?

And ScarJo's dress would be beatiful if it were knee-length. As it is, it's a little too reminiscent of my great-aunt's sofa. I suddenly have a craving for an ancient peppermint dug out from the depths of a gigantic black purse...

---
I believe Brit was going to pay K-Fed to come along and watch the kids. They had come to some kind of agreement without their lawyers. This made the lawyers sad pandas and they tried to put the kibosh (sp?) on the plan. Brit threatened to cancel the tour. Lawyers acquiesced and the boys are going along.

That's what I heard yesterday. The internet police won't let me visit the us magazine article, so I don't know if that has the same information or not.

Gwynnie reminds me of those seemingly normal people (not the freaks) who try out for American Idol who have no idea that they can't sing. Don't these people have friends that say, "no honey, this is not a good idea".
Gwynnie, you are no Martha (who by the way everyone also loves to hate).

ScarJo rocks that dress, though it's not for everyone.


Erykah Badu twitters child birth in real time

Well, at least she demonstrated the good sense not to have octopuplets.


From the TomKat article: "After spending months all bundled up in frosty New York, the family seemed happy to fit a little family vacation into Tom's never ending schedule of events."

So TomKat's relationship is all about Tom? I'm no huge fan of either one, but did Katie's just-completed stint on Broadway count for nothing? And doesn't Suri look tired/bored/unhappy in all the pictures of her? She's a real child, not a prop (same can be said of Danielynn).

Aww, c'mon, Methinks. Ya gotta give ScarJo a little credit for matching the drapes with the carpet.

There are several good aspects to Erykah Badu's tweets. First, we can be thankful that she tweeted rather than taping the birth and posting it on YouTube. Second, we should appreciate how the spelling of her name fits so well with the Texting Twitter Culture. That's right, folks, Erykah Badu is a Teting Twitter Tw*t.
Finally, we can be thankful that when she wrote "I can see the head," she was writing about parturition instead of defecation.

What I "learned" from today's morning mix:

- Erykah Badu can type through "contractions".
- Gwynnie gets talkative (and blogative?) when she's "drunk".
- "They" schedule award shows too early for Rachel Zoe
- Heidi Klum loves her image more than she "loves" unemployed Germans
- Jennifer Aniston "does dishes" (I'll have to have her over sometime...)
- Diane von Furstenburg doesn't like the people who "work" for her to stage catfights for "reality" TV.

In what alternative universe does any celebrity think it's acceptable to rant and rave and act entitled over preferential treatment? I love that the passengers were amused. But seriously, do they really think they can get away with it unreported?

Okay ladies of Hollywood, this emaciation thing is totally out of hand. The latest: That picture of Connolly says she's "showing off her pins"--pins is right--these people have no thigh muscles. It's just so bizarre and unnatural looking to have a six inch gap between your thighs when standing normally--that's what a skeleton looks like. Not to mention there's no differentiation from above to below the knee. *shudder* It's bringing out the Italian in me, I want to feed all these people.

I don't like ScarJo as a brunette, and I would usually champion brunette over blonde. She's just too gorgeous as a blonde ("The Island" may have been a terrible movie, but the cinematographer lit her so lovingly throughout that film that I'm convinced he had a huge crush on her).

from the eye on Hollywood captions: Feb. 2: T.I. gets his picture taken while promoting his upcoming MTV series, "T.I.'s Road To Redemption." The show, which debuts later this month, documents the rapper's preparations to serve a one-year sentence in jail beginning this March; he received that sentence in connection with federal weapons charges.

ep, I thought that convicts were prohibited from capitalizing on their incarcerations. Is this legal?

I'm not epjd, but I play one on tv...

Hodie, it completely depends on the jurisdiction and the individual judge involved in a case. There's no blanket ban on making money off of being in the pokey (and probably no way to do one), but in high-profile cases with large money-making potential, judges have increasingly imposed that as a condition of sentencing. Freedom of speech being what it is, you'd have to be very, very careful about legislating such a ban.
