Ohhhh shit, Martha Stewart is throwing shade! Blake Lively may have just launched her own lifestyle website, but Martha is not worried about her coming for the homemaker crown and thinks Blake ought to stick to acting because she will never be on her plane of existence. LOVE IT.
From Page Six:
When asked about Lively’s new website, Preserve, Stewart, 72, seemed puzzled as to why the “Gossip Girl” actress would want to be anything like her.
“Let her try,” Stewart told the Huffington Post on Saturday. “I don’t mean that factiously! I mean, it’s stupid, she could be an actress! Why would you want to be me if you could be an actress? I just did a movie yesterday, though — I can’t even tell you about it — but I want to be Blake Lively.”
“Every day I get starstruck by somebody or something,” she continued. “It’s fun to admire and to learn from people who are better at everything than you are, so I have many heroes I worship, Derek Jeter — I can’t play baseball like Derek Jeter! And Beyoncé — I certainly can’t dance and sing like Beyoncé!”
Hilariously, Blake was rambling on to Vogue recently about how great Martha is and how she’s “generous and kind” and whatnot. And I’m sure she is – I don’t think Martha said any of this maliciously, but she does make a good point. What’s with certain actresses feeling the need to become a lifestyle brand unto themselves? What makes Blake Lively (or Gwyneth Paltrow, for instance) qualified to tell you what foods or $300 tea towels you need in your life? Martha may not have started in this industry either, but she at least did the work and knows what she’s talking about.

Scarlett Johansson is very pregnant and living her glamourous French life, so she’s been opting for a more natural beauty look lately. Her most recent move is an interesting one: a very short, very strange haircut that looks like she did herself in a Britney-esque breakdown. It actually kind of suits her, I just wonder if it’s for a role or to escape the bullshit summer weather (IT IS HOT!).
What do you think? Does she pull it off?

It’s no secret that Zac Efron has had his share of issues with drugs and alcohol. He even went to rehab and is apparently back on the wagon (apparently being the key word). Well, now he’s decided to open up about his struggles to none other than Bear Grylls, as they walked around mountains and drank their own piss, or whatever you do on that show.
Here’s the scoop from US Weekly:
The High School Musical alum, 26, was the first celebrity to appear on Running Wild with Bear Grylls, NBC’s new reality show where Grylls takes celebrities on two-day excursions to put their survival skills to the test.
In addition to jumping out of a helicopter, being dropped into the Catskill Mountains, and eating a worm, Efron, who has completed two stints in rehab, opened up to the survivalist about achieving fame early on and what ultimately led to his struggles with addiction.
“It was just so quick — it was shocking,” the blue-eyed hunk admitted about hitting fame at such a young age. “The challenging part was never the work, that was never it,” Efron began when asked by Grylls what led him to rehab. “It was sort of the in-between work — the social aspects outside of it; everywhere you go [there are press and people watching] … and it can be confusing … and pretty soon you need a social lubricant,” he said.
“Once it became that … it got to the point where I was caring less about the work and waiting more for the weekend where I couldn’t wait to go out and let loose and have fun,” the Neighbors actor went on. “But when Monday and Tuesday were difficult to get through, I thought, ‘This is bad.’
“I just really never again want to take anything from the outside in to feel … comfortable in my present skin, and that takes a lot of work,” he said. “It’s just meditation and stopping and slowing down your brain.”
Unfortunately I don’t really buy the whole “I meditate instead of taking drugs now” thing – that’s only ever been true for Russell Brand (and even him I’m not sure about). Zac gets in tooooo many weird situations for a non-druggie, but kudos for the acting effort.

This hot ass mess of a song came out yesterday, but I decided I should probably write it up today since it managed to reach #1 in 11 countries in 24 hours. Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj teamed up for a screamfest pop track with added rap element in ‘Bang Bang’, a song that’s so all over the place I don’t know what the hell I’m listening to half the time. Is it catchy? Eh, kinda. Is it full of bars being oversung in ways that would rival Christina Aguilera? You betcha. Here ya go anyway…

Well, sorta. Orlando Bloom and Justin Bieber have been rumoured to be at odds for a long while now – Justin has been seen with Miranda Kerr and Orlando has hung out with Selena Gomez a handful of times – and it seems there’s some truth to those reports. Apparently Orlando and JB got into an argument recently in Ibiza which culminated in Orlando throwing a punch straight towards Justin’s face, only Justin ducked before he could make contact. Sucker.
The eyewitnesses tell TMZ … Orlando was in Cipriani restaurant which was packed with celebs, including Paris Hilton, and Diddy.
You don’t see Orlando swing, but the eyewitnesses tell us that’s exactly what happened. We’re told Justin ducked the punch. That’s where the video starts and you hear Justin scream, “What’s up bitch?”
We’re told when Bieber left the crowd applauded.
I don’t think I’ve ever liked (or cared about) Orlando Bloom more. It’s just unfortunate Justin is such a punk and ran away – how shocking, considering how he’s such a big man who likes to spit in people’s faces and threaten to kill them. You’d think he’d be game for a fight. (Yes, I’m rolling my eyes.)

Leonardo DiCaprio seems to be living it up this summer, hanging out on yachts, doing karate on the beach, and now apparently having a water gun fight with his friends. Nevermind that Leo is 39 years old and filthy rich but still looks like a Yeti, he’s loving the sun! And why shouldn’t he? Life is good when you’re famous and loaded, isn’t it?
This is totally the new “Leonardo DiCaprio walking” meme, by the way. Can’t wait to see all the things he’s Photoshopped into.
