Skype Dates.

Soooo funny. I love Jay-Z and Beyonce. They are probably definitely my favorite celebrity couple. He's SO funny. Is it weird I totally thought about me and Theo as Jay-Z and Beyonce? Because our Valentine's Day was totally spent on Skype, while...one of us is in an exotic location.

The Couple That Golfs Together...

Do I even need to say it? They have rolling, MATCHING, blue and pink golf bags. How barf-able.
And I am no golf expert, but after years and years of going to TPC and watching sports from my favorite place- the sidelines, I like to think that I know what a good swing looks like. And this is kind of it. But not really. I think he's too hunched over. Or his arm isn't straight enough.

But that's not the point- the point is his face. Confidence. He's got it in droves. That is what makes him a rock star I guess, in more than just the talent arena.

The Next Generation.

Davy Davy Davy. Love him. Hate him. Doesn't really matter- anyone who shares genes with James Franco has got to be worth a second, third and fourth look, right?

Details is coming out with their "The Next Generation of Hollywood Men", and he is one of the featured boys. Also on the list? Miley Cyrus' beau Liam Hemsworth, who I must say is looking mighty fug on this shoot, she can have him.
His "How you know him" section says this: As an MIT student in the Nicolas Cage thriller Knowing; in the pages of Us Weekly, for reportedly dating Miley Cyrus.

Ok, so he was basically an extra, then he met Miley Cyrus and became famous. Hmm. Similar pattern that we've seen before? Who the hell was Justin Gaston before they started dating? No one. And still, the only thing he is known for is dating Miley Cyrus. And being an extra on "Glee".
 Now here's something promising. Ben Hollingsworth, from Ontario. Love the last name Hollingsworth- sounds like a song. Anyways, he's 25, and the last thing he was in Ashton Kutcher's quickly canceled CW series The Beautiful Life.Ew. We'll try to look past that. Plus, this made me laugh: 
"I was once in a theater production of A Few Good Men. I shaved my head, gained 30 pounds of muscle, and was walking around town in dog tags—I got a little Method. People came up to me and were like, 'Thank you for all you do.' And I'm like, 'Oh, you saw the show?"
Anyways, back to Dave Franco: 24 (hmm only four years older than me...) native of Palo Alto, FL and of course, brother to James Franco. He is of course, most recently on "Scrubs" as Cole Aaronson. Next up is the big time: he's starring opposite Zac Efron in "The Death and Life of Charlie St. Cloud". Zac Efron= the big time.

Oh Davy Davy Davy.

Women of Comedy.

Betty White is going to be on SNL!!! Probably. She has nearly signed on the dotted line to be a part of a "Women of Comedy" episode of SNL where she would host with the likes of Tina Fey, Molly Shannon and Amy Poehler.

I honestly think I might cry this is so cool.

Seriously? Still?

Really, Lady Gaga? Are you still doing this thing? Everytime I look at a picture of her, I have about 5,416 questions. Most of them involve, a sigh and then a shrug. Lately, I've been shaking my head at the computer. I guess I really really over performance art. Ugh. She's exhausting.

Lady Gaga is ruining Lady Gaga for me.

Hells Yes.

I couldn't even think of a real title to get over my excited for this one. Paul Feig, the director of "Freaks and Geeks," is now set to bring a Kristen Wiig screenplay to theaters. Wiig will star in the wedding-themed comedy surround two friends planning a bridal party. The news was just announced so details are still on the slim side, but we'll be sure to keep you up to date! Ugh, I hate hearing about these things so early- now, I'm going to be super unhappy with other movies.

Tina Fey, En Vogue.

Tina Fey. Has anyone ever deserved to be on the cover of Vogue more? No. Am I confused by how Victoria Beckham has been wrinkling with the stress of never having been offered a cover, and yet Tina does it with ease, and at an older age? Yes. And delighted.

Victoria Beckham is cool, but Tina Fey is cooler, in a nerdy way.

Bonne Anniversaire Max!

I can't believe I forgot to wish one of our favorite Pens, the inspiration for our blog name, and my personal love, Max Talbot a happy birthday yesterday. The day after mine, another reason we are meant to be together.
I mean, I'm not sure what birthday proximity has to do with anything, but at the very least it means we should be besties, which is totally fine with me.

Bonne Anniversaire Maxime!

Ryan Kwanten, August Man.

Ryan Kwanten, how I have missed you. The months since "True Blood" have been passing slowly, and I cannot wait until I have it back in my life again.

He was photographed by Mitchell McCormack, and spoke on his life as an actor:
On making sure he keeps a life outside acting: “I don’t mean to sound preachy, but I think it is a mistake that a lot of actors make. They just surround themselves with the world of acting and therefore that is all they know.”
On watching his passion for the craft grow: “It wasn’t until the roles started getting bigger and the storylines more complex that I realized there was a true profession behind this. As the roles got deeper that passion for the craft was cemented in my veins.”
On leaving behind his life in Australia:“It was never a planned move to Hollywood, but once I arrived in L.A. it sunk its teeth into me and no matter how hard I tried it wouldn’t let go.”

Rio Curls.

The always lovely Beyonce Knowles was spotted in Rio De Janiero on Wednesday afternoon, February 10 (aka my birthday) visiting the famous 130 foot tall Christ the Redeemer statue with her mother. It is considered the largest art deco statue in the world.

Also a work of art: her hair. How does she get her curls to be so awesome? Would kill to know what she puts in it.

Avatar: The Last Airbender.

I know this is so nerdy of me, but I have been waiting for this movie for forever. It is the reason I resented the other Avatar that everyone was so excited about- it took cred away from this one. The REAL avatar.

Dev Patel, as prince Zuko? Le sigh. I wish his scar was bigger though. And where is his hot and sexy ponytail? So...awesome. Due in theaters July 2, and you know whose going to be there at midnight? Me. Anxiously waiting to see if M. Knight Shyamalan can make a good movie again.

Hockey's Finest: Olympiads.

Le sigh. If only this were on sale in the United States. Unfortunately, we don't care about hockey, or well...the winter Olympics at all really. So this is a strictly Canada only version of this SI.

For the record though- USA all the way. I'm rooting for my boy Brooks Orpik.
That jersey looks snazzy, non? Love the choice of blue as the dominant color. Red is so...garish. Sorry Russia.
Sergei Gonchar. It's going to be hard for me to root against him. Evgeni Malkin, eh. He doesn't need my cheers.

Doesn't Sid look good in his jersey though? Some weird and hideous thought is telling me that he got a fake tan for the occasion of this photo shoot, but I'm going to blame too much "Jersey Shore" and ignore it.
Question, and probably something only I would notice, but why do the US's and Russia's jersey's have scoop necks, and Canada's a V? Do Canadian's have thicker necks? Is it some sort of strategy?
We'll see I suppose. Fancy costumes won't win this battle. 

If you want to check out the preliminary line ups, check here.

John Mayer 2.0

I...literally almost threw up when I saw this picture. I mean, euchhh. Who does Penn Badgley think he is? Look at this quote, because we have another John Mayer on our hands-

On musicians he admires: D’Angelo is a god to me. I mean, people hear that from me, and they’re always like, ‘Oh, but he got so messed up.’ Who cares? Listen to Voodoo. That’s a record. You know, I listen to it sometimes, and I wonder, maybe you have to be messed up to make art like that. Maybe you’ve got to destroy yourself. Or have that thing that destroys you.”

Cosmo Doppelganger.

Why does Carrie Underwood look a little bit like Lindsay Lohan? Does this have something to do with doppelganger week on Facebook?
Well, smoker's skin aside, here's what the newly engaged Carrie had to say:

On fiance Mike Fisher and his influence on Play On: “He provided a lot of inspiration for songs, whether it was something he said or just by being supportive.”
On meeting Mike for the first time after being set up by friends: “I made sure he came in with some other people. I was, like, ‘what if he’s weird?’”
On balancing work and life: “I didn’t want to be one of those people who has an amazing career but ends up alone and unhappy. I want to be happy. I want it all.”

Svelt Snooks.

Our girl Snooks got a classy makeover by Inside Edition, and doesn't she look good? I've just stared watching "The Jersey Shore" after much, much deliberation on the status of my IQ.

My IQ is safe. Watching "The Real Word" (Hawaii, Seattle and Las Vegas) has given me immunity to it or something. Thank God.

It has led to very intellectual debates, like, "OK, if you died and went to hell, and your punishment was having to choose which of the Jersey Shore boys to marry, who would it be?"

Girls, you gotta find yourselves a nice, juiced guido.

Nick Jonas, V Man.

Ok by total accident these pictures of Nick Jonas got lost on the mess that is my desktop and I forgot to post them. Sorry Jo Bro die hards, they were precious to me too- perhaps so much that I subconsciously did not want to share?
We'll say that. Anyways, true Jonas rabids will have already of seen these anyways, probably before I did- even with my six hour jump.

PS- does he not look like he has a little bit of a uni-brow in the above picture? Unfortunate angle, I'm sure. Joe would never let him be photographed un-groomed. 
What is up with V Man magazine lately? It's like all of a sudden it's the new GQ or something. Well, power to them, because I've been loving their covers. Nice.

Kitty Purry meets Snooki.

Guess who Katy Perry met at the Grammy's? You guessed it- Snooks. Lovely picture, and you can see Russell Brand in the background, non?

Katy posted this to her twitter the other day, and...well, you know what they say- a picture says a thousand words.

Through the Looking Glass.

20 year old Aussie actress Mia Wasikowska sports a cropped hair cut on the cover of Teen Vogue this month, and speaks about her role in Tim Burton's upcoming "Alice in Wonderland" movie.
On her interpretation of Alice: “One of the things that was scary about taking on that role is the huge fan base; everybody has their own idea of who she is. So [Tim Burton and I] discussed, very early on, just being happy with her being our Alice…making her my own.”
On earning her roles: “I like getting jobs because I auditioned for them, because of my ability as opposed to my celebrity.”
On growing older: “As a teenager I was very anxious. I had a lot of energy and passion that I wanted to channel into creative things, and I always felt like I wasn’t achieving enough.”

Me & City, Agyness & Orlando.

Orlando Bloom and Agyness Deyn have become the face of a Chinese label Me & City. The ads were captured by famed photographer Terry Richardson. They are portraying a young Hollywood couple in the Spring 2010 campaign.

More after the jump.

When In Rome...Get Engaged.

One of our absolute faves, Kristen Bell is engaged! Her boyfriend Dax Shepard proposed over the holidays and they've kept it mum ever since. They have been dating since early 2008.

Kristen showed off her ring at the Grammy awards, and since then her rep confirmed the news to US Weekly.

Congrazioni Kristen e Dax!

Can You Hear Her Now?

So, here's another issue I had with the Grammy's. It seemed like 7,416 people and their cousins received Lifetime Achievement Awards. Yet, I'd only heard of Michael Jackson and he was the only person to have his award accepted by someone on stage. These someones were his kids. Michael and Paris. If you don't know, my suitemate is obsessed with MJ and therefore his kids. She, literally, screamed when the kids walked out on stage. SCREAMED. Her middle name on facebook is still "RipMichaeljackson". She also goes on to describe him as "her first true love" and she's also been known to do the dirty to "Man in the Mirror". But, this screaming took it too far for me. The kids were fumbled and sounded nervous- which I found endearing. And when my neighbor stopped screaming, I realized how much these kid's lives are going to suck. For them, it has to be worst than being rich. They're the King of Pop's kids, how do you live up to this? You'll always have crazy girls screaming your "father's" name. Yikes! I liked them better with thier faces covered- MJ knew what he was doing.

Giving Hope to Girls Everywhere

Yikes. Caressa Cameron was crowned Miss America (Not, USA! - there's a difference) last night on TLC. I think the picture of her on the left from high school tells girls everywhere: with just a little bit of make up and weave, you too can be Miss America. I had braces too...

Ryan Gosling and School Do Not Mix.

WHY. Why does Ryan Gosling do this to me? I'm supposed to be writing a paper on Giorgio Bassani and every time I get down to it, my mind wanders to Ryan Gosling. Intrusive little thoughts like, Ryan would make a great Alberto...I am 99% sure that my paper is going to be five pages on why Ryan Gosling would be great in a movie on a Bassani novel. Serious. It would take me about five minutes to get it down on paper, because it's already all written up in my mind. It's getting that bad.
Why...WHY does it have to be Jen from "Dawson's Creek"? I prefer when I see him with some random on the streets I can pretend is his sister, not possibly the beginnings of an amazing super couple. Arg.

Concentrate. I just need to concentrate.

Bye Bye Betty.

Le sigh. This is tragic, although not unexpected. ABC has canceled "Ugly Betty", and it is going the way of my other favorite ABC brightly colored series, "Pushing Daisies". When will people smarten up and stop watching "Dancing with the Stars" or other crap like that? That is why these shows fail. Because everyone expects ABC to show fluff that takes no brain power and costs less than nothing to make.

What am I going to do without my Mark and Amanda fix? Granted, last season was rough, but this season was really, really getting good! Well, one reason I like ABC despite their constantly difficult online stream is that they gave Betty a chance despite the absolutely horrible ratings. If it was at NBC it would never have lasted even this long. And they are giving the show sufficient time to make a satisfying conclusion. Although this season has been cut from 22 to 20 episodes, I can live with it.
Exec producer Silvio Horta and ABC president Steve McPherson confirmed as much in this joint statement:  “We’ve mutually come to the difficult decision to make this Ugly Betty’s final season, and are announcing now as we want to allow the show ample time to write a satisfying conclusion. We are extremely proud of this groundbreaking series, and felt it was important to give the fans a proper farewell.”

Cry cry cry. I shall move on though...hopefully there will be bigger and better things in the future. These past few years have made me tough.

Mommy Fan Club President.

VH1 series "Storytellers" aired last night, and guess who weaseled their way onto it? Mr. Won't shut up even if you walk away quickly through a crowded room- aka John Mayer.

This one makes me laugh: he claims if he meets one more girl with a daddy issue, he's going to lose it. Why'd you make that damn song then John Mayer? Because if I hear that thing one more time...I'm going to lose it. And by "it" I mean my lunch.

And PS- girls feel the same way about guys with mommy issues, and I just have this feeling that he's a card carrying member of the mommy fan club. I mean, Jennifer Aniston.
