Gallery: The changing face of Lindsay Lohan

I'm hardly the only one to remark that Lindsay Lohan is looking a bit older than her 23 years of late. Some speculate that Lilo is the victim of an overzealous collagen injector, while her own dad suspects a little too much partying. Whatever the case, it's not the first time Lohan's looks have raised red flags. Earlier this week, Lilo made the unfortunate mistake of sharing a red carpet with the ossified Donatella Versace and the similarities between the two were, well, striking. Today, we track Lindsay Lohan's changing look -- from her debut as a kid star to her bottle blond, fake bake current incarnation.

In pursuit of celebs with OMGICU

(Courtesy OMGICU.com) OMGICU is social networking for the star struck -- a Web site and companion mobile app -- that lets users report often breathless celebrity sightings (similar to the oft-criticized Gawker Stalker, but without the maps) and follow sightings for specific stars. The usual suspects -- "Gossip Girl" cast members, Adrian Grenier -- are represented, but I was amused to see the unlikely inclusion of Sam Waterston (spotted once, dining alone and looking younger in person), Olympia Dukakis ("Foxy, old, diabetic.") and Paul Giamatti ("Shuffling along 6th & 20th.") The site is also partly responsible for bringing "30 Rock's" Tracy Morgan to Twitter. OMGICU founder Hugh Dornbush created this video and the Web site twacy.org to petition Morgan to take up tweeting. It worked -- Morgan is now a-tweet and OMGICU's traffic is up. Last week, I corresponded with Dornbush about the site and celebrity stalking: Liz Kelly:...

Kanye West removes stomach-stabbing movie short from site; Mischa Barton ready for 'serious' roles

Katie Holmes arrives at the 16th Annual ELLE Women in Hollywood Tribute Tuesday in Beverly Hills. Holmes's outfit, she says, was picked out by three-year-old daughter Suri. (Getty Images) Where the Wild Things Aren't: Before we had a chance to see it, Kanye West removed a graphic (sex, self-mutilation) short film from his Web site. The Spike Jonze-directed 11-minute short reportedly followed West as he spent a drunken night bedding strangers, vomiting, then exorcising a demon by stabbing himself in the stomach. The Daily Mail -- of course -- has stills. More Headlines: Rihanna releases new single "Russian Roulette"... Chris Brown announces tour dates...

Who says John Mayer can't be a D-word?

Well, now we know why Jennifer Aniston couldn't make it work with John Mayer. According to his new song "Who Says," he wanted to "get stoned and plan trips to Japan alone." Further, he'd like to go out clubbing past his curfew and -- if he feels like it -- frolic in a private pool at 4 a.m. with bra-clad models. And he doesn't need some overbearing nanny of a girlfriend forcing him into monkey suits for red carpet events. Or maybe the real reason is that he's an utter dillweed. A dillweed who describes the video for "Who Says," as giving us a peek at his "real" life -- real life apparently meaning a never-ending party set amidst an urban Disneyland backdrop. The video, Mayer told Popeater, was meant to give fans a sense of accessibility to his life: "I want people to watch the video and feel like...

Octo-Mom has the hots for Jon Gosselin; Lilo's dad to seek conservatorship

Unholy Alliance? Is it possible that two fame-hungry super-spawners could join forces to create some kind of unstoppable child exploitation machine? Well, we're one step closer to finding out. Octo-mom Nadya Suleman thinks father of eight (what a coincidence!) Jon Gosselin is "hot." "I kind of have a crush on [him]," Suleman told Radar Online. (My question: Where's the balloon boy dad in all of this?). Donatella Versace and Lindsay Lohan (right) attend Monday evening's Whitney Museum of American Art gala in New York.

Will California's new anti-paparazzi law have any effect?

Photographers swarm Paris Hilton's home in 2007. (Reuters) [F]ill us in on the finer points of California's new anti-paparazzi law. I am confused: does it mean no more car chases? No more shots of little kids? No more traveling in packs? (I'm not actually opposed to any of this but I'm curious to know what this does to celebrity news coverage.) -- Submitted to last week's Celebritology Live discussion Lest you think paps were free to take upskirt shots and loiter outside Beverly Hills private schools waiting to snap celeb-spawn, know that California has attempted to rein them in before. Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger passed an anti-paparazzi law in 2005 meant to increase the stakes for "overly-aggressive" photographers. Several high profile celebrity/paparazzi car chases that year -- and some fender benders -- were the inspiration for toughening the state's law, originally passed in 1998 after Princess Diana died in a...
