Taylor Swift launching her own fragrance; Leonardo DiCaprio to play serial killer

By Liz Kelly and Jen Chaney

Celebrity Beat: Taylor Swift becomes just the latest celeb to launch her own fragrance... Ricky Martin tells Oprah (on Tuesday's show) that he "cried like a baby" after he came out... North Carolina Republican congressional candidate apologizes for (falsely) claiming Morgan Freeman did the voiceover on his campaign ad.. Mike "The Situation" Sorrentino's brother accused of punching, abducting woman... And we thought Randy Quaid was the crazy brother.

Celebs from Lindsay Lohan to Gilbert Gottfried turn out for Judd Apatow directed PSA:

Rumor Mill: Chelsea Handler and 50 Cent lunch together in Malibu, so they must be dating... Continuing her long slog in Paris Hilton's footsteps, Kim Kardashian is reportedly recording an album... Andy Dick suicidal, "friend" tells Radar Online... Ryan Phillippe and Amanda Seyfried spotted on Halloween date... Uma Thurman's stalker strikes again... Motley Crue's Vince Neil to compete on "Skating with the Stars?"

Pop Culture Mix: Leonardo DiCaprio to star in and produce adaptation of "The Devil in the White City"... GQ plans to post behind-the-scenes video from "Glee" photo shoot; publisher calls the pics, which have racked up 33 million page views for the magazine's Web site, "the gift that keeps on giving"... British actor James Nesbitt joins cast of "The Hobbit"... Baz Luhrmann still considering multiple actresses -- including Rebecca Hall, Amanda Seyfried and several others -- for role of Daisy in "The Great Gatsby"... Same goes for Cameron Crowe, still choosing the female lead for "We Bought a Zoo."

Whoa, I gotta put a stop to this right here. It's bad enough when we're reading about talentless quasi-celebs like "The Situation". It's really bad when we're reading about the obscure brothers of talentless quasi-celebs like "The Situation's Brother". Stop the insanity!

I sure am glad I got out of the US when I did. I hate Morgan Freeman voiceovers.


Let's just call the brother 'Marc "A Whole 'nother Situation" Sorrentino from here on in.


It's surprising how even after all these stories about ChelFiddy dating, they're still just not even remotely interesting.


Kim Kardashian is recording an album and Andy Dick is suicidal. I can't believe those items aren't related.

Another celeb fragrance. Why don't they just take a shower?

I liked the Devil in the White City. Not sure I want to see a movie made out of it.

JeLi, how come the comments count doesn't show up anymore? Trying to get us to click every story to see any bon mots from the Lizards?

I can see the commercials now.


Int. 5-star RESTAURANT.

JOE JONAS is at a table with a beautiful woman. The remnants of a sumptuous meal lay before them. A candle burns, casting a soft, flickering, glowing light on the woman. Soft music plays in the background.

JOE JONAS leans in to kiss the woman on the neck.

JOE JONAS (whispering): You smell like 'Taylor Swift'.

The woman recoils.

WOMAN: You son of a ------!

She throws her drink in his face and storms out in tears.

VOICEOVER: Taylor Swift. Next time, just tell her she smells nice.


****


Int. dimly lit bedroom. Smooth jazz music plays in the background.

Camera follows a trail of a woman's undergarments to the foot of a king-sized bed. JOHN MAYER lays in bed covered to the waist by rumpled sheets. His head rests on a woman's stomach. He gently starts to kiss her, moving down, before he stops.

JOHN MAYER: You smell like 'Taylor Swift'.

The woman recoils.

WOMAN: You son of a ------!

She breaks a lamp over his head, pushes him, unconscious, onto the floor and gets dressed. Before leaving, she kicks him in the belly.

JOHN MAYER moans.

VOICEOVER: Taylor Swift. Next time, just tell her she smells nice.

epjd, I'm trying to find out the same thing. I'll let you know when I get an answer.

"Taylor Swift becomes just the latest celeb to launch her own fragrance" -- Powerful stuff; repels any attempt to steal her award spotlights within 50 feet. As we speak, Kanye is seeking an antidote.

"Ricky Martin tells Oprah (on Tuesday's show) that he 'cried like a baby' after he came out" -- Why the tears, Rick? Did you come out on a Barbara Walters Special? (If so, I wouldn't mention that to Oprah. She's funny that way.)

td, Kanye probably thinks Beyoncé's perfume smells better than Taylor's. (Oh dear, that could be open to interpretation).

Best publicity you can buy.

=========================================

I'd be much happier if those items were reversed.

I sure hope Skating with the Has-Beens doesn't involve lifts or death spirals. Seeing as Vince Neil has already killed someone.

With a name like Andy Dick, it'd be hard NOT to be suicidal.

"Another celeb fragrance. Why don't they just take a shower?" .... if the deodorant-averse Matthew McC. ever comes out with a "fragrance", hold your nose!

C'mon Liz. Only Gwinnie is suitable to play Daisy.

I had to reread the Vince Neil item twice. The first time I could have sworn it said, "Stalking With the Stars."

GQ is now sponsoring a contest on "Which actress that played a teenager would you like to see posed for a crotch shot in a locker room." Since it's all virtual and photoshopping is involved, you can go all the way back to Sue Lyon if you want.

I think that is called 'patchouli'. I've never figured out the value of it since, the smell is a bigger giveaway than glassy eyes while holding a bag of Doritos.

Baz Luhrmann still considering multiple actresses -- including Rebecca Hall, Amanda Seyfried and several others -- for role of Daisy in "The Great Gatsby."

He could always do like in "I'm Not There" and have each (including maybe a guy at some point) play a different facet of Daisy's persona.

That Baz Luhrmann & Cameron Crowe are "still considering multiple actresses" for roles in their films could explain why area furniture stores have recently reported a spike in couch sales.

byoo, especially now that Crowe's getting divorced after all these years.

If you mixed some of Taylor Swift's perfume with McGRAW you'd probably end up with something that smells like the ladies' room at a rodeo.
