Kelly Pickler is apparently getting Kid Rock’s pickle (sorry, I just can’t help myself). She professed this on a radio station, much to the hatred of her stalking fans. Like me. Yeah, I’m talking about me. At least I admit it. This makes me feel as though my life sucks and Kid Rock’s life rules. Oh wait…apparently its been going on for over a year. She’s 15 years his younger, in case you wanted to hate yourself a bit more…
Madonna and new african-cradle-robbed baby, Mercy, took to the streets of London for some good ole fashioned PR shots. Nothing better than proving you were right by having the Paparazzis take pictures of you and your new unbiological baby having a great time in Western society. Madonna will reportedly perform at a Michael Jackson tribute concert that is being planned. Expect her to perform Billie Jean.
Here’s Marion Cotillard and Johnny Depp on the red carpet of their new movie, Public Enemy’s, premier. Boy, if you don’t feel ugly now, I sure don’t know how to make you feel ugly. God these two are attractive people. Ok, so I have a mild mancrush on Johnny Depp, but damn, can you blame me? All I have been seeing for the past many days is pictures of Michael Jackson. Know what I mean? More Marion Cotillard and Johnny Depp pictures.
Here’s a clip from 1985 of Madonna performing Billie Jean. Damn, remember when she used to be so young? This has been a really depressing week. Hot on Youtube, worth the watch, you know the drill.
Billy Mays, best known for pitching late night TV products (we’ve all fallen asleep to his shows at one point or another) passed away in his Tampa home yesterday. Its being said he wasn’t wearing his seatbelt on a flight landing, hurt his head, and died later. Strangeness. RIP bro. More from TMZ.
After the flight, Billy told FOX 13 in Tampa that something struck him in the head — here’s Billy’s actual quote:
“All of a sudden as we hit you know it was just the hardest hit, all the things from the ceiling started dropping. It hit me on the head, but I got a hard head.”
We called the FAA for comment, and a spokesperson told us, “The passenger needs to wear a seat belt during landing and he didn’t.”
Here is more Michael Jackson at the top of Youtube. I expect he’s going to be the hot Youtube item for weeks, if not months, to come. Here is Billie Jean. This is back when dude looked normal…
Perez Hilton has found a way to embarrass himself, yet again, in this Black Eye’d Peas incident. As you know, Will.i.am took one for the people and decked Perez Hilton. Perez, in turn, is trying to say that he will donate the money from his lawsuit to the Matthew Shepard Foundation. Problem is, he didn’t tell them about it and well, they don’t care for him enough to take the money. Perez, your own people are turning against you. Good work. Here is the official statement from Judy Shepard of the foundation.
The Matthew Shepard Foundation was surprised to learn this morning via media reports that blogger Perez Hilton (Mario Lavandeira) has announced he plans to donate, to our organization, the proceeds of a lawsuit he is contesting over an altercation which has been widely reported in recent days.
We had no advance notice or contact from Mr. Hilton or his representatives regarding this proposal, nor any communication since he posted this plan to his website.
We do not know the details of the lawsuit, whether it has been filed, the nature of his claims or the likely outcome. But because the lawsuit presumably involves the physical attack prompted by Mr. Hilton’s admitted use of an anti-gay slur, the Foundation will be unable to accept any funds obtained in such a manner.
We very much appreciate the generosity of the offer to support our continuing work to memorialize Matthew through activism in defense of sexual minorities and in favor of understanding, compassion, and acceptance. But because so much of our work involves education to reduce the use of hateful language against gay, lesbian, bisexual and transgendered persons, or those so perceived, it would be inappropriate for us to benefit financially from circumstances in which such a verbal attack was involved.
While we applaud Mr. Hilton’s apology to the LGBT community and their loved ones for his use of such a slur, we also feel compelled to point out that use of epithets can often lead to physical violence, as it appears it may have in this case, and that the Matthew Shepard Foundation has worked for more than 10 years to bring to people’s attention the consequences of hateful or intolerant language.

If there is anything less romantic than getting married at your fiance’s ex boyfriends mansion, I am confident that Philadelphia Eagles NFL star, Hank Baskett, is in search of it. Yesterday he and Kendra Wilkinson tied the knot at The Playboy Mansion in Beverly Hills. How romantical. Anyways, the two are married and are expected to stay married for the next 2 years or until Kendra’s reality show finally tanks (which ever comes first, and at this point, that’s a toss up). Enjoy lots of pictures.
Lindsay Lohan rung in her 23rd birthday in Vegas at Wet Republic. Although, as a matter of Science, I’d say she’s drank her way to 60 or so. I wonder what The MGM is paying her to show up and fake celebrate her birthday? I mean, give me a break. Yes, I’d still hit it. Twice on Sundays. Which is today, whadda ya know, folks! More pictures of Lindsay Lohan sporting a bikini below. For God’s sake, enjoy them. She may only have another year with a bikini body at this rate…
Debbie Rowe has the rights to the kids, contrary to popular belief. Basically, you can’t leave kids to someone via a will. Imagine that. Although she is very upset over Michael’s sudden, untimely death, she could proceed forward. Of course, no one really knows who one of the kids belongs to….more from People.
Prince Michael, Paris and Jackson’s third child, Blanket, 7, whose mother has not been identified, have been in the care of Jackson’s mother Katherine since the entertainer died Thursday after a cardiac arrest. “The kids are very upset, but they are fine,” Jackson’s manager, Frank DiLeo, tells PEOPLE.
During the custody fight between Rowe and Jackson in 2005, Rowe sought to give up her parental rights, and lauded Michael as a good father. Retired Judge Stephen Lachs, who presided over the hearing, at first agreed to terminate them, but then Lachs changed his mind and returned the rights to her.
“She lost them, and then she got them back,” Finsilver says. Finsilver said she spoke to Rowe on Thursday but she cannot say what Rowe plans to do. “She was inconsolable.”
