Oh my. The, uh, choice and location of the colors on those pants... I don't know though, maybe that was Leighton Meister's worst outfit, but I'll never get over Pamela Anderson's sheet 'dress'. At least the whole of the outfit isn't completely absurd.

That was not the first bull to escape a Wee Tom movie set.

I also did not get into a fight with Fiddy or any of his bodyguards.

Other than that, looks like a slow celeb weekend. (MJ wins awards, Lady Gaga not wearing pants, zzzzz)

You would've thought that bulls running through the streets in Spain wouldn't be that big of a deal.

If Heidi Klum takes Seal's last name, will she now only be known as Heidi?


Leighton's outfit is so terrible that I have no words.

Marv Albert denies scuffle with 50 Cent... (Fiddy's "minders failed to recognise him as a fellow guest.")

Maybe it would've been easier if Marv had been wearing female lingerie.


Heidi Klum officially takes Seal's last name.

But the guy only goes by one name.


Jon Gosselin brings bouquet to mediation ("Jon & Kate" finale to air tonight).

Kinda like a funeral, huh?


Jackson glove sells for $350K.

Proof once again that some people just have too darn much money.


Amy Winehouse set to remarry ex Blake Fielder-Civil?

In a civil ceremony, no doubt.

Bulls escape from set of Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz movie.

I always root for the bulls at Pamplona.

"Michael Jackson wins four AMAs." Ironic, considering what the AMA's going to do to his doctor.


"Jon Gosselin brings bouquet to mediation." Jon, you misunderstood: I said to bring a BUCKET. I'm gonna puke.


Prediction: Mr. Blackwell will raise himself up from the dead just to comment on Leighton Meester's outfit.


What Nosy said about Pamplona.


In Celeb-Spotting-News: my wife, daughter and I were in the REI store in Pittsburgh on Friday when we noticed that one of the other shoppers was Jake Gyllenhaal (he's in town filming something). Daughter approached, told him she was a fan and enjoyed his performance in "October Sky." She reports that he was very gracious. (For her part, The Lovely Mrs. byoolin continues to repeat the phrase, "He's so pretty," as though it were some kind of mantra.)

What, byoolin, you weren't at the Sam's Club to see Sarah Palin autograph her ghost-written book?

So everyone has conceded that Michael Jackson is not really dead? Even the AMAs? Why is he getting awards? Did he have a new album or something before he supposedly died?

Posted by: Amelia5 | November 23, 2009 10:00 AM | Report abuse

I could comment on Leighton Meester's outfit, but I'm just gonna wait for the GFY girls to do it. I'm sure they spit coffee all over their monitors when they saw that...

Could we have just ONE day in this blog without someone gratioutsly (sp?) bringing Sarah Palin up? Please???????

Trust bulls to recognize bs and want to get away from it.

Jacko's four awards were sent to an undisclosed location. So he can enjoy them in private.

As an illustration of what a rotten person I am, I have watched that JLo video several times and my office-mates had to ask me what I was laughing about...

Anyone who appears on Oprah and is interviewed by Baba Wawa is fair game for Celebritology.

As a service to my fellow 'zards, I saw "2012" this weekend and can report that, despite the cheesy plot and so-so acting, it was highly entertaining, with very cool end-of-the-world special effects.

However, the highlight for both me and my 17-year-old son was, as always, the trailers. I'm happy to confirm my original prognostication that "Prince of Persia" looks like an absolute howler - the audience was laughing during the preview, and no, it's not supposed to be a comedy.

Also, there's a new SJP flick coming out called "Did You Hear About the Morgans", which unfortunately takes place on a horse ranch. Even my son (who NEVER notices this stuff) made the connection. Yikes.

"Invictus" with Morgan Freeman and Matt Damon looks goooooood, plus it has rugby! And "Shutter Island" with Leo - the trailer alone scared the heck out of me. Can't wait to see the movie.

Yours in film,
jaybbub

I agree with ep - b/c it seems to me that there are plenty of political blogs to diss various politicians. Go rant there.

I don't read them b/c I have no interest. So constant bashing of one politician or another on THIS blog kinda ruins it for those of us who either:
(a) don't agree with you - so it just makes others mad

OR

(b) don't even care (me) - so it just makes the blog less funny. I mean, how hard is it to bash politicians?

Sorry, but if it walks like a celebrity and talks like a celebrity, then it's a celebrity. This is the equivalent of the entertainer who energetically seeks the limelight, then protests too much about the burden of being in the public eye. Can't have it both ways.

Five words I never want to read again: "Tom Cruise, Cameron Diaz movie" -- Did "Vanilla Sky" teach us NOTHING?! Just promise me it's not a musical.

"Leighton Meester in the worst outfit ever" -- I thought Leighton Meester was a guy, in which case yes, worst ever. Seeing as he's a she, however, this just looks like something Lady Gaga turned down as being too tame.

Leighton Meester's outfit looks like a particularly vicious Queen Bee joke on a wannabe. With hair by "I Dream of Jeannie".

Jaybbub, that is too funny about your son and the SJP horse farm flick. Agree that "Invictus" looks pretty good, too.

Jakeypoo and his assistant filled three or four shopping bags. He mostly circled around in the backpacks and camping supplies section. As far as I could tell, he bought no bicycle parts, no kayak, no shoes. He did not climb the indoor rock wall.

I want to tell people that I saw him stab someone with a Leatherman, but that would be untrue.

Hmmm I may have a hard time with Invictus - setting aside the yuck fest of Morgan Freeman having 'inappropriate relations' with his step granddaughter...

ugh...

PS Little Lurker is still lurking - so if I go radio silent for a month or two, you'll know his lurking status has been changed to 'active poster'...

"Marv Albert denies scuffle with 50 Cent..."

"We both know we've only ever been divorced on paper."
- Unfortunately, that quote is from Blake Fielder-Civil, not Jon Gosslin

"Jon Brings Bouquet of Roses To Arbitration Hearing With Kate"

MJ wins four awards from the AMA. Wow, didn't know he went to med school. What were the awards? Perfecting technique to achieve low metabolic rate simulating death? Face transplantation? Gender reassignment? He certainly was a pioneer in the fields.

JLo's ample booty was certainly the asset to have for last night's performance.

Yeah, agree on the outfit but again I ask, what is a Leighton Meester?

I'm sure Rhianna's outfit made Lady Gaga green with envy. And did anyone notice Janet Jackson was not wearing black.

Nosy, Ahnuld was too easy. My point is that if celebrities can turn politician overnight it can work the other way too.

Tears are falling into my Coke Zero b/c I can't see Leighton Meester's fashion faux pas OR JLo fall until I get home.

Now that I've gotten that bit of silliness out of my system....

Thanks for the trailer update, jaybub.

I read the book "Shutter Island" written by Dennis Lehane (Gone Baby Gone, Mystic River) a while back. It was wayyyy scary. The movie should be awesome!
Very noir.

Thanks for all the well wishes, little lurker almost made an early entrance this weekend as I jumped up and down and whooped and hollered when big bro scored during the semi-finals of his all star soccer game (a beauty of a left footer, tipped over the keepers hands and in to the onion bag!)...

Reddraggon I will attempt to describe thsi leeton mystery...

Close your eyes and imagine her hair being this big mushroom top like growth over big heavy bangs.

Make up, heavy if unremarkable, an asymetric 'collar' of gold around her neck (must not have noticed all those 800 commercials where you can sell your gold and get cash) that matched a wrist cuff.

A 2 inch wide black 'boob tube' (a la the 70's) covered by an open small black vest. thnk lots of pale skin...

A BROWN croc skin belt with a big buckle.

Over top of a pair of white based multi-colored rorschach stretchy pants (the kind that Nacho Libre might wear jes for fun). The most unfortunate element being that the rorschach definitely led one to see (as Sas so rightly points out) the appearance of brown stains running down the inner thighs. (perhaps they thought this would be a slimming element - you know drawing the eye from the non-existant 'hips').

And the final touch was a pair of those black platform ankle boots with gold/silver chain mail over them.

She appears to be holding a microphone and one hopes she is not jumpstarting a secondary musical career a la Heincer...
