Year of the Rabbit celebs: Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp and Zac Efron

Rabbit ruled Kate Winslet. (Getty Images) People born in the Year of the Rabbit are reportedly articulate, talented and ambitious. Which may explain why so many Hollywood A-listers were born in the years associated with this Chinese zodiac animal: Angelina Jolie, Johnny Depp, Zac Efron, Kate Winslet, Drew Barrymore, David Beckham -- to name just a few. But what significance will the sign have for babies due to be born between now and Jan. 22, 2012? Considering the number of celebs expecting bundles of joy in 2011 -- including Pink, Natalie Portman, Kate Hudson, Jewel, Marion Cotillard, Victoria Beckham, Jane Krakowski and Jennifer Connelly -- we thought it would be a good idea to do a little research....

How Liz spent her summer vacation

Me and my guy. (Photo by Matt Nelson) For the past three months I have done my utmost to NOT pay attention to the world of celebrity. I have some general awareness of a few of the bigger stories (Mel Gibson reinforced the conventional wisdom that he is, indeed, a first-class jerk, turns out Lindsay Lohan isn't a fashion designer/actress/singer, but a chronic drug abuser, Paris Hilton's new leaf looks a lot like her old leaf) that filled the summer, but remain blissfully unaware of most celebritological goings on since late June. Why? As most of you know, I had a baby, Desmond, who literally burst into my life and pretty much turned everything upside down. Three months later, everything is rightside up again. In fact, things have never been righter, but it's been a bit of a journey. One I want to share with you. At least a...

Celebrity chef Rick Bayless: Cooking up controversy for White House dinner?

Rick Bayless poses at his Frontera Grill restaurant in Chicago. (AP) Is celebrity chef Rick Bayless cooking up controversy ahead of the second official Obama administration White House dinner? Wary of any undue attention after last November's infamous gate-crashing by Virginia fame-seekers Tareq and Michaele Salahi, the White House -- armed with a new social secretary -- has been working overtime to limit press surrounding tonight's event. But Chicago-based restaurateur Bayless has been tweeting since his arrival in D.C. earlier this week to serve as guest chef for the tonight's dinner in honor of Mexican president Felipe Calderón. While Bayless has commented on everything from the "nice" White House staff to the "rather small" kitchen, he insists (yes, via Twitter) that he has not -- as reported by the Chicaco Sun Times -- tweeted from the White House itself. But, whether tweeting from inside 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue or not,...

About This Blog -- An update!

Liz: Since 2006, Celebritology has delivered a carefully curated daily mix of the day's top celebrity news, gossip and must-see photos and videos. But, like any good news product, we've grown and changed over the years. Now that we've made it through puberty (because four years equals puberty in blog years) it's time to expand our focus and take a wider look at the world of entertainment. Celebritology will continue to bring you breaking celebrity news (Lindsay Lohan's accelerated aging), opinion (Did Tiger go too far?) and analysis (which celeb iPhone app should you download?). But starting today, the revamped Celebritology -- dubbed Celebritology 2.0 -- will add a healthy dose of posts about pop culture, covering everything from movie blockbusters to offbeat DVDs, extreme fandom to the latest geek-tastic viral video. How? I will still be here paying attention to the latest Spencer and Heidi news so you don't...

William Shatner + Video = Reliably Funny

Sometimes I recognize that I am merely a conduit, this blog a vessel through which the throbbing force of pop culture streams unchecked. Today is one of those days. No preamble could possibly do anything to make the video embedded below -- a mash-up of a William Shatner interview and techno music -- any more perfect. So, without further ado, I bring you "Shatner of the Mount." My work is done here: (P.S. No proper Shatner video post would be complete without a link to the classic Celebritology Video Hall of Fame inductee, Shatner's "Rocket Man.")...
