Ryan, My Hero.

These are pictures of Ryan Kwanten (of "True Blood" fame) in 2magazine from earlier this year. This is no trick, but a total treat. I never get sick of his magazine spreads.

Ryan has signed on to star in the movie "Griff the Invisible", a movie about an Australian office worker who moonlights as a superhero.

"Every boy dreams of being a super hero, and I've accepted my mission of bringing this one to life," he said.

Enjoy these pictures, I did. Have a safe Halloween!

Remember when someone got dissed and everyone said, "Ohhhhhhhhhhhhh." Well, this is that moment.  I personally love it, because I can hurt people's feelings without even thinking about it. That sounds awful, but it's a gift. Why deny it? I've learned to take a few seconds and think about it, but catch me on the wrong day- I'll tell you what I'm thinking.

In this video, Melissa Joan Hart's attempt to be funny backfired. Lesson learned: don't mess with Jimmy Kimmel. This is a verbal bitch slap.

One Long Year

Taylor Momsen and Dakota Fanning are one looooooooong year apart. They are 16 and 15, respectively, but really they live about ten years apart. Here's Dakota at her high school's homecoming- where she was crowned Princess. Now, now before some of you freak out about me pointing this out, I'm not dissing Taylor (it's too easy). I'm just pointing out how refreashing it is to see a young celebrity enjoying her youth! I think there is something very sad about kids that finish high school earlier to act, not attend college. They do it for convience, so they don't have to work with tutors on set.

It's nice to see that Dakota has a life outside of hollywood. Okay, and it makes me really think that Taylor's whole "I'm an artist... Why do I need math?" act is total bull. Sorry, I had to say it. High school is more than just the classes- its the activies and the friends you make. And, honestly, Taylor Momsen could use a really good girl friend to tell her to STFU!

Taylor Swift Gets Boo'd.

Taylor Swift was on "Ellen" the other day and since it's Halloween, she has been scaring all of her guests, and one epic scare was Taylor.

My roomies and I have been playing this game for a while- our bathroom is down this weird hallway that has other hallways branching off from it, and when one of us goes to the bathroom, someone hides in one of the hallways and yells, "gotcha!"

Scares me every time. We even have a tally up on the wall- when you get someone you get a tally. Just fyi it's pretty even. I know a lot of you don't believe it, but I can get people. I can.

Whale Wars Gets Interesting.

I totally agree with this. I watched two episodes of "Whale Wars" over the summer and...those hippies are crazy, but not in a good way. If someone told me that they had an episode where they tried to catch a Japanese boat in a fishing net made of hemp, I would believe it.

I'm not even sure they even really know what's going on with those Japanese boats. I'm always thinking, "what if it really is for scientific purposes?" I always picture Hiro Nakamura from "Heroes" running around on the deck gasping for air after they throw a stink bomb or whatever onto the boat. Then I am sad and want to help the whalers. Maybe that makes me a bad person. Or maybe the crew is just unlikable.

A "Glee"-ful Dresser.

Jayma Mays of "Glee" fame was spotted out shopping in Beverly Hills. Love her. Love her outfits. She always has the most adorable things on non? She is possibly the one redhead in the world that I am not suspicious of on principle.

Look what she's wearing now for instance. Adorable, non?

The Devil and Her Angel Babies.

Ok, this is not...funny. The wrong people are dressed up as the devil. God I hate fame-whoring.

Someone please take those babies away? Please?

Alexa On V.

MTV host of "It's On With Alexa Chung", and current style icon of mine Alexa Chung recently did a spread for V magazine that is gorgeous. Absolutely amazing. Stunning.

I could go on for years with the adjectives. Love her so much. She was wearing Dolce & Gabbana and Chanel and posed for photographer Sharif Hamza.

This is what she had to tell them:
On It’s On jitters: “I’m worried my guests won’t like me.”
On making friends in a new environment: “I don’t really have any friends in America…I just don’t tolerate douche bags”
On her new place: “I think my apartment is too shiny. I just found out that (Vampire Diaries') Ian Somerhalder used to live in it. And the other day when I was in the laundry room, I heard that Michael Douglas' son is looking to move into the building.”

I want to be Alexa's American friend. I'm not a d-bag, I SWEAR. Also, why do I feel like she is specifically referencing John Mayer?

Crazy Eights.

Normally I hate them and loathe posting about the lovely (gag) Pratt family, but in this case, I had to laugh. They totally have just DONE the damn thing. I heard about all the John and Kate's that are going to be out on Halloween, but these two are perfect. Especially since everyone who watches "The Hills" knows that Spencer is anti-baby and Heidi wants...about this many. Maybe more.

Love it. Have to laugh, I really do. Also, it looks like they just got dressed up and went to the bottom of their drive way to do a mini-photoshoot with the paparazzi. So them.

I Know How It Ends

This is why I won't see the Michael Jackson movie. Get it? I know how his movie ends... jeez, I'm such a jerk. And trust me, I get bitchier the later it gets. But, I looked through all the pictures and started a game. I'm calling it, "who is least connected to michael?" I narrowed it down to about three or four people. Yes, I know it's all about publicity, but still I could think of other events people could have attended... Laker seats must have been too expensive.

Larry Birkhead... father of Anna Nicole Smith's daughter. What in the world would he and Michael have discussed? Having kids everyone knows aren't yours. That's what I decided.

Next, "Glee" stars Cory Monteith and Kevin McHale. I looked up their names instead of saying wheelchair boy (aka pizza delivery boy from the office) and not- so baby daddy jock boy. They weren't even famous when Michael was alive- maybe because they're on a musical-y show "Glee" producers thought someone should go. Looks like they pulled the short straws.

What could the Hulk and Michael Jackson have in common besides maybe Madonna? Seriously. Anything else?

Sensory Overload

As in, what I'm suffering from right now. So, this will be a lowercase post - a sign of exhaustion. First, I have to apologized for not blogging this week. I've been so busy with school and volleyball. But, I'm going home this weekend, so I'll come back rejuvenated. Hopefully... did you know you can never catch up on sleep? I'm in that zone right now.

This post will have a lot of pictures, because me like Lebron, better know as lebronjonez.

But, the show goes on! On to cleveland, a so far defeated team (0-2). they've lost to Boston at home, and away across the border to Toronto. Critics are already complaining about the lack of defense. Blah. Two games into the real season and shits already starting.

I can already promise that you'll be seeing the Shaq/Lebron picture everywhere in a few weeks. And they have that three thing in common, so expect some clever play on that. "Three's company?" maybe... don't judge me. I'm tired. Boy George, even with that NBA logo on his face Lebron and his suit is sexy. Is it weird that I think he looks like Ray Charles... and I'm not complaining?

Ok I was about to totally judge you for the Ray Charles thing, but I see it. I do.

Living Vicariously.

Lets be honest. This is funny, but considerably less funny because it's something we all want to do so badly.

I've pictured it so many times- the windup, and then WHAM jet let him have it. Glad someone did at least. It was a promo provided by We Love You So (Spike's blog) to promote the Spike Jonze directed short film that is available on iTunes as of two days ago called "We Once Were Once A Fairytale".

Lucky bastard.

The Good News and The Bad News.

Sebastian Stan was out at GQ's Gentlemen's Ball in New York on Wednesday.

God he's sexy. Why isn't "Gossip Girl" using him more? He is a GIFT. A gift that they have at their disposal only because he's dating Leighton Meester. The writing on that show...terrible. What a waste. I hope "Kings" starts up again.

I put him in this post to give me the stomach for the next part. Sugar, aka Emmy Rossum was also there. Guess what bitch was bragging about?

She's in a movie with Zach Gilford, or Matt Saracen on "Friday Night Lights". She is SO not worthy of him. Get ready to wretch:
“It’s a love triangle between two boys and a girl. Zach Gilford and me and Ashley Springer, Alan Cummings is in it, Sandra’s kind of like a dark, sexy comedy.”

Not...Great Taylor Swift. Not Great.

This is Taylor Swift at Katy Perry's birthday party last week posing with

Ok, hopefully she just didn't notice that this guy had a huge swastika painted on his chest...? Not sure how you miss that, but...this is going to be bad for her. This kid is trying so hard to be cool it's really pathetic. He thinks he's edgy like Prince Harry. Le sigh.

If it was me, instead of taking a picture with him I would have reached over and broken those damn glasses.

Sister Act.

This is what I've been waiting for ever since I caught onto "Bones". Zooey Deschanel is going to be making a guest appearence!

She'll be playing a long-lost relative of Dr. Brennan's, who comes to spend Christmas with her. The episode will air Thursday, Dec. 10.

The Determined.

I almost passed out when I saw this. Can I wait until the spring when NBC decides they can squeeze this in their lineup? I don't think so.

Why is this show constantly in jeopardy? It's not fair. Just watch, you'll see what I mean.

New Characters on True Blood.

In the next season of "True Blood", some new characters will be added into the mix, and I can't wait.

Apparently Sam Merlotte's long lost brother, Tommy Mickens, is described as "a grungy but handsome man in his early 20's". He also seems to share Sam's shape- shifting tendancies.

There are of course new vamps joining the cast, including a Czechoslovakian dancer named Yvetta who gets all clingy with Eric (back off bitch), Franklin Mott, who tangles with Tara, Talbot who helps Bill out of a jam and an orderly named Jusus Velasquez. All gorgeous, naturally.

Tara's mother also starts dating the reverend. Weird? Yes. But that's the "True Blood" we know and love.

Tori's Pretty Swacket.

Ok yes, I hate Tori Spelling. But I love this swacket (a sweater-jacket) thing. I'm going to to knit myself one. Once I can learn to make something more complicated than a scarf that is.

It's cute, non?

New Jersey Meets Anne Geddes.

Oh this is so Jersey fabulous. This summer Theo and I became obsessed with the "Real" housewives of NJ. Especially Teresa's husband, Joe. Best line ever is when Teresa is showing him a couch she bought for that gaudy ass house of theirs (which I now hear is in danger of being reposessed) and is like, "Don't ya just love it?" and he says, "It's a couch- why would I love a couch?"

So wise. Joe is so wise. Anyways, these are their two babies, Audriana and Nicholas. Poor Joe. I don't think he's ever going to get a boy. Her shopping for all those damn girls is what's putting him in the poor house.

I cannot wait for the next season. Oh can't come too soon.

And Another One Bites the Dust.

A little piece of me just died when I saw this. I know. I know Anderson Cooper is gay. But...I always held out a little hope. It's pathetic. Totally pathetic.

Anyways, this is my Anderson at the Rambagh Palace Hotel in Jaipur, India on Tuesday with "friend" Antoine "Ben" Maisani.

I have to give him this much, my Anderson has good taste. Kid is hot. Maisani runs the East Village bar 'Eastern Bloc' and the two have been spotted together before- biking back in June.

Le sigh. And another one gone, and another one gone...

Halloween Hint?

More adorable celebrity babies. Matilda Ledger, who is 4 as of yesterday, on her way to school in Brooklyn this morning. She was also holding a Cinderella figurine- maybe a hint as to what she's going to be for Halloween?

I always hated Cinderella. What a lame-o. I'm with the evils on her, she's such a drip.

Killing Two Birds With One Pumpkin.

Oh it is so ON. This is the ESSENCE of the Great Pumpkin Scam. Like hell she is going to carve that pumpkin. She's there for the press. Paris knows what's going on. I'm surprised it took her this long to figure it out and get her fame whoring ass on over to the pumkin patch.

Here's the best part- you know she is totally holding that pumpkin in front of her stomach so that people will speculate that she's pregnant. Yuck.

Jokes on her- no one cares.

The Coolest Kids on the Planet.

Cutest. Kids. Ever.

Look at Kingston. How does a kid just have THAT much cool right from the get-go? He has more cool as a toddler than I will ever have in my entire life. Is his hair naturally like that?

The great pumpkin scam doesn't even bother me with this one. If my kids were that cool, I would want to show them off too.

"Nowhere Boy" Update.

So, it turns out that "Nowhere Boy", the John Lennon biopic, does indeed include some John Lennon music. In fact, here is an entire list of the music featured in the movie, and I've gotta say, it's a pretty slammin' list. I'm excited.

The song "Hello Little Girl", the first song co-written by Lennon and McCartney makes an appearance in the film, sung by Sam Bell, who plays George Harrison. McCartney and Harrison's "In Spite of All Danger" also makes a play. Almost inevitably included, as we could see in the trailer, is Lennon's song "Mother" from the album 'John Lennon/Plastic Ono Band'.

All The Music Featured in "Nowhere Boy"
Wild One - Jerry Lee Lewis
Mr Sandman - Dickie Valentine
Rocket 88 - Jackie Brenston & His Delta Cats
Shake Rattle & Roll - Elvis Presley
Hard Headed Woman - Wanda Jackson
I Put A Spell On You - Screamin' Jay Hawkins
(Let Me Be Your) Teddy Bear - Elvis Presley (performed by Aaron Johnson)
Maggie May - traditional, (performed by Anne-Marie Duff, and by The Nowhere Boys)
That'll Be The Day - Buddy Holly (performed by Aaron Johnson)
Rockin' Daddy - Eddie Bond & The Stompers
Twenty Flight Rock - Eddie Cochran (performed by Sam Bell & Patrick Murdoch)
Blue Moon - Rodgers/Hart, popularized by Elvis Presley (performed by Aaron Johnson and Thomas Brodie Sangster)
That's All Right - Elvis Presley (performed by The Nowhere Boys)
Movin' N' Groovin' - Duane Eddy (performed by The Nowhere Boys)
Raunchy - Bill Justis (performed by The Nowhere Boys)
Hound Dog - Big Mama Thornton
Love Me Tender - Elvis Presley (performed by Sam Bell)
My Son John - David Whitfield
Be-Bop-A-Lula - Gene Vincent
Hello Little Girl - The Beatles (performed by Sam Bell)
In Spite Of All The Danger - The Quarrymen (performed by The Nowhere Boys)
Mother - John Lennon

We'll see. I have my guard up about this one. But it could be great if done right.

The Office Goes Musical.

Ok, get ready to be excited. Erin and Kelly have started a girl group "Subtle Sexuality" and they have put out an AMAZING song called "Male Primadonna"- I wonder who that's about. Seriously, don't listen to this unless you want to be humming it for the rest of your days. SO GOOD. It's part of a webisode that we debut on Oct. 29, and is also Mindy Kaling's first piece as a director.

I can't embed it, but click HERE, you won't be sorry. 

Tay Tay Moving Swiftly.

Ok, lame punny title, I know. But the two Taylors went out to dinner on Monday, after Swift had spent all day at the Forum in Inglewood filming her new music video.

The oh so cutesy thing about the dinner? Swift's mom was also there. Aww. Meeting the parents. Must be weird to know what your daughter's boyfriend looks like half naked, especially if he's Taylor Lautner.

Do I like this couple...hmm. Can't decide. Time will tell. Maybe I'll have to go see that "Valentine's Day" movie they're in to know for sure.

Stars Make It Down To Seasame Street.

Jake Gyllenhaal will be making his way to "Seasame Street" this season, helping them out with a 12-part series of episodes called "Shalome Seasame" to teach Jewish-American kids about Jewish culture.

Other stars you can expect to see: Michelle Obama, Maggie Gyllenhaal, Cameron Diaz, Hugh Jackman, Paul Rudd, Ricky Gervais, Eva Longoria, Matthew Fox, Christina Applegate and Adam Sandler.

Woah. That crazy little street is popular. I should hang out there.

Finally, The John Lennon Biopic.

So excited about this project. It's Sam Taylor-Wood's young John Lennon biopic "Nowhere Boy". It's the one we've all been waiting for, non?
Interestingly enough, the movie features no Beatles or John Lennon music, although it does have recordings of John Lennon reflecting on his early childhood. The first song we hear is Jay Hawkin's classic "I Put A Spell On You", which is a nice touch for lack of a Beatles song. I assume the title derives from their song "Nowhere Man". Great song. Good title for the movie.

The film is playing the London Film Festival currently, and stars Aaron Johnson (Lennon), Thomas Sangster (Paul), Kristen Scott Thomas (Lennon's Aunt) and it was written by Matt Greenhalgh, who also wrote the Ian Curtis/Joy Division biopic "Control".

There is a noticeable lack of release date at the end of the trailer, which is a pretty good indicator that we can't expect it this Oscar season. I think they're going to push for next year, so...we'll see how this one pans out.

The guy they picked to play Paul looks a bit like a younger Dominic Cooper, non? Also, I've been informed that he is the little kid, Sam, from "Love Actually". That's a woah moment.

Craig's In the Dark.

High winds in Southern California last night caused power outages all over Los Angeles, and one of those power outages was during "The Late Late Show" with Craig Ferguson. Oh yes. So awesome.

See, he handles it wonderfully. So funny, probably the only late night host who could have delt with this without making it awkward. Seriously, imagine this happening to David Letterman. He would have freaked. Boy does not deal with this kind of thing well.

Anyways, the outage happens around the 9:05 mark, and it's not a very exciting interview, so I recommend skipping straight there.

Then this is the end of the show where Craig does his traditional "What Did We Learn" segment...with a flashlight.

Woman of the Year.

Michelle Obama. What a cool lady. Glamour magazine just voted her 'woman of the year' and I couldn't agree more. Is it weird that I was really excited to hear her dating advice? I mean, obviously she knows how to pick 'em. But anyways, here, enjoy:

On dating advice for women: “Cute’s good. But cute only lasts for so long, and then it’s, who are you as a person? Don’t look at the bankbook or the title. Look at the heart. Look at the soul…. When you’re dating a man, you should always feel good…. You shouldn’t be in a relationship with somebody who doesn’t make you completely happy and make you feel whole.”

Shakira and Babies.

In Shakira's interview for her Rolling Stone cover, she made the comment that,
“My body feels like it is asking to reproduce, to have a huge belly and carry babies.”

Read Between the Lines.

So...who thinks this is just a funny little coincidence? Not I. Totally on purpose. I mean, what are the odds of this happening on accident?

Say What?!

25 hundred dollars for some pull out seats!? What? They aren't even dressed in LA's colors!

Rumors were swirling around the Odom/Kardashian pre-nuptial for weeks, seemed like they focused more on that then they did on dating. One of Khloe's demands was  court side seats to the LA Lakers games... if they get divorced. Is it just me or does this seem crazy? Like, is that a necessity? WeHateTheKardashians.

So weird, I was just about to blog on this. I hate when people go to sporting events dressed like they're going out to a fancy dinner. Women are mostly guilty of this. They're called jersey chasers. Khloe Kardashian is a high-profile jersey chaser.

Scary Taylor.

More stuff that makes me like Taylor Swift. On Halloween there are two types of girls out there: Those that slut it up and those that have fun with it.

I am of course, in the latter. EXCLUSIVE: I'm, along with 3 other Yeah Yeah Yeahs, (our names for our fans, it's officially decided after much debate) am going as a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle. Donatello to be precise.

Taylor actually goes way more extreme though than I ever would. Well, maybe if I was famous and didn't want anyone to see my face.

She says girls at her school, "would tan for weeks in advance, and then bare it all on Halloween," and she says, "that's not the point, you're supposed to be scary."

Agreed. Mutant turtles are actually totally frightening when you think about it. This is a pretty cool idea though:
"I think my most memorable Halloween costume was last year's costume. My best friend Abigail (Bradforn?) and I have always been anti-teeny-tiny, little costumes...and so last year Abigail and I dressed up as twin Chewbaccas."

You see, celebrities, they're just like US.

Little Miss Sunshine.

I saw this picture of Matilda Ledger and I was like, 'hey, I've got Hunter boots too. I'm cool like Matilda.'

Don't you just feel like she's one of those naturally cool people? I'm 19 and I'm excited because a four year old and I have the same taste in boots. Basically that's my life.

A Bouquet of Beauty.

There are no words anymore. How many ways can you say "amazing", and "so hot"? I love his funny or die spoofs, they crack me up. Have you seen his acting lessons with his brother Davy? Funniest thing ever. EVER.

I mean, this is not his hottest moment, and he's still hot. That's talent.

The Jonas Bro?

Nick Jonas' mom, Denise, has confirmed to Parade rumors that Nick is doing a solo project.
“Nick is working on a solo act--it's called Nick Jonas and The Administration. Shhh! He's at the photo shoot for the album cover right now."
Hmm. I am unsure.  This sounds kind of like it might be a joke. I'm informed by my top Jonas expert, Molly, that Nick's nickname (haha) is 'Mr. President'. So this could just be a little inside joke at the expense of the gossip hounds.

Well they won't get me by golly. No siree.
