Jack Sparrow Attempts to Aid A Young Pirate in Mutiny

A photo of Johnny Depp Photo via People All right, see that picture?  That's Jack Sparrow (I know that I should say that it's Johnny Depp as Jack Sparrow, but no, I'm going to stick with character names, you'll see why momentarily) and a couple of his pirate buddies, and that little girl is nine-year-old Beatrice Delap, pirate-in-training.  Beatrice, in need of some assistance, wrote a letter to Captain Jack Sparrow, one of the best pirates ever, and said that ""We are a bunch of budding young pirates. Normally...

Caption This: Courtney Love Looks Too Good to Be Sad

A photo of Courtney Love So what's happening in this picture is Courtney Love is galavanting around shows for the Paris Fashion Week, looking classy as fuck. She's not making a scene, she's not wearing extremely unflattering clothes.  I've been studying this picture for a while now, and I can't find a single thing trashy about her here.  You guys, she's even wearing pearls.   Pearls. Maybe this really is a brand new Courtney (for public, anyway). But just look at how sad she looks.  The girl is in Paris, looking super cute, and there's even a reasonably attractive young man near...

James Franco in Drag – Do You Need More Words?

A photo of James Franco Ok, I'll give you a couple more words, but really, just look at the picture for a minute.  Doesn't James Franco make such a dramatic-looking woman?  Like if you gave him some finger waves, he could totally be banging Humphrey Bogart? This is definitely what looks like another awesome photo shoot by Terry Richardson, and it's for Candy, a newish magazine that refers to itself as "the first fashion magazine ever completely dedicated to celebrating transvestism, transexuality, cross dressing and androgyny, in all its manifestations."  In related news, I am incredibly excited for the future. ...

Justin Bieber to Host That Classic MTV Show …

A photo of Justin Bieber Punk'd. Justin Bieber is going to be the new host of Punk'd. This news hit me in waves.  I was like "oh, I always love Justin Bieber news.  Wait, they're bringing back Punk'd?  I wonder if Ashton ... oh no!"  And then my brain synced all the information together, and then it promptly exploded.  That's how great this news is. Things aren't set in stone yet - according to the original article, Bieber "has been all but officially tapped as the host" of the revival of Punk'd.  And just i...

Quotables: Katherine Heigl Doesn’t Think She’s That Bad

A photo of Katherine Heigl “I’ve been told I’m too forthright with opinions. Well do they want a fierce woman or milquetoast? Should I be me, or should I pretend to be something I think people want? Pretending seems pretty ridiculous to me. I didn’t think that what I was was so bad that I needed to hide it.” - Katherine Heigl getting real. If you read the interview, it's pretty clear that the writer is on Katherine's side.  He says that she's "warm and genuine in person," and he brushes off all those inst...

Tyra Banks Thinks It’s OK to Accessorize Like This

A photo of Tyra Banks This is a photo of Tyra Banks.  Do you see those people behind her?  That's the public.  She wore some damn fishnet over her head in public - to the 90th anniversary party for French Vogue, no less.  I bet she was super smug with herself while she was getting ready for this event, like she just grabbed up some of those super cheap stockings in those quarter machine capsules and when she got home she had a stroke of "genius" and made a mask, just like some small children playing Cops and Rob...

Justin Timberlake Joins With Jimmy Fallon in The Most Amazing Medley

If you've ever thought anything along the lines of "You know what would be a good thing?  If Justin Timberlake were to cover several of the most popular hip-hop songs ever," then you are in luck.  Toss Jimmy Fallon in there, and I think I just made your dreams come true. While JT was on Jimmy Fallon's show to promote The Social Network, the boys ended up talking about the Sugarhill Gang, and from there they launched into what I think is one of the most powerful musical performances of the year.  The duo performed snippets of songs like "Califor...
