7Quotables: Rob Kardashian Thinks He Is Better Than His Sisters

A photo of Rob Kardashian

“I’m so proud of my sisters, but I’ll be married before I have a baby.”

- Rob Kardashian discusses his own plans of parenthood, forgets about the time that he knocked up some girl who later had a miscarriage.

See, this is interesting for a couple reasons. For one, whatever, Rob Kardashian. That bit about the miscarriage is true, by the way: he hooked up with some girl, some random casual thing, and he didn’t use protection, and she got pregnant. It was on Khloe and Lamar even. So that seems kind of an insensitive comment, doesn’t it?

And we all know that Kourtney has two kids with her dude, and even though they’re not married, and even though her dude is kind of an asshole, they’re still in a committed relationship. It’s really not that big a deal.

But we all also know that Rob said this as a comment on Kim’s pregnancy, and because of that, his comment just doesn’t make any sense. As the lovely commenter Mercy (hey, lady!) explained, Kim is married. Like, duh! The baby isn’t going to be born out of wedlock (side note: will that make Kris Humphries the baby’s stepfather?)! Everything’s fine!

Man, 2013 looks so cool from here.

4You Will Never Guess What Rihanna And Chris Brown Did for New Years

A photo of Rihanna

That’s a photo that Rihanna posted on Instagram yesterday morning. She wrote “Good morning! Still haven’t slept lol #hello2013.” Take a good look at it. Look at all the details, all the surroundings. Got it?

Now here’s what Chris Brown posted yesterday morning:

That is the very same blanket that Rihanna is snuggled up in! SHE IS RIGHT NEXT TO HIM. I see what you did, you tricky tricksters, and I am not amused. Not one little bit.

Obviously, they knew people would put this together, which makes me feel lame for even talking about this. But it’s frustrating, and if I don’t get it out here, then I won’t get it out at all, and I just can’t live with that kind of negativity inside me. Why can’t they just take a picture of both of them in bed together, why does it have to be this puzzle piece shit? Why can’t they just make an announcement that they’re together and be done with it?

8Also, Snooki Got A New Tattoo

So yeah, that’s a leopard with wings wearing a crown. Does it have a beak? I don’t even know.

Here’s what Snooki had to say about it on her blog:

I haven’t mentioned or showed anyone besides Jionni this tattoo! I got this last week when we shot our final Jersey Shore reunion :( My fierce leopard tattoo. I wanted to get this because to me it represents being a strong independent woman, and obviously I love leopards/leopard print! The crown represents being a queen and being fabulous, and the wings represent everyone who has passed in my family. Anytime I can incorporate my loved ones who have passed, I do it! This tattoo also will always remind me of getting it while being in LA shooting our FINAL reunion of Jersey Shore. This tattoo was done by my one and only favorite artist in LA ,Bryce Oprandi, at the The Martlet Tattoo!

This is her sixth tattoo, and she said that every Monday, she’s going to be revealing another tattoo and the story behind it. And that’s how Monday just became my favorite day of the week.

6A Photographer Was Killed Trying to Follow Justin Bieber

A photo of Justin Bieber

From TMZ:

A paparazzo attempting to shoot photos of Justin Bieber’s Ferrari was hit by another car and killed this evening — although Bieber was NOT behind the wheel of the Ferrari … TMZ has learned.

Law enforcement sources tell TMZ Bieber’s white Ferrari was pulled over by California Highway Patrol for speeding on the 405 … near the Getty Center in LA.   The CHP directed the driver to pull off the freeway, onto Sepulveda Blvd.

According to our sources, Bieber was DEFINITELY not driving at the time.

We’re told a paparazzo — who was following the Ferrari at the time of the pull over — attempted to snap pics while officers conducted the traffic stop … until CHP advised the photog to move back because the situation was unsafe.

The photog then crossed Sepulveda to snap pics and was struck by an oncoming vehicle as he crossed back and killed.

Our sources say drugs and alcohol were not a factor for the driver of the vehicle that hit the photog.

Since this initial report, it’s been confirmed that Justin wasn’t driving, he’d let a friend borrow the car.

But can we all agree that there’s a line with this whole thing that shouldn’t be crossed? This poor guy risked his life to get a picture of Justin Bieber, and he lost it. Isn’t that sad? There’s a difference between gossiping about a celebrity and following him around in your car, you know? One’s natural, and the other is creepy and weird and dangerous. It’s like the difference between you and your friends talking about that one bitch at work and what she might have been doing last night and driving to her house with a fancy camera to try to catch pictures of her doing it. Gossip might be catty, but that’s why we love it. No one loves stalking creepers.

Not to make light of someone’s death, but Justin Bieber just got a new tattoo:

That’s his calf, by the way. The praying hands are old, but the roses are new. Wouldn’t it be much more fun to talk trash about his tattoos instead of looking at pictures of him being pulled over for speeding?

UPDATE: It turns out that the guy, freelance photographer Chris Guerra, thought he had seen Justin driving around earlier in the day, and he thought that Justin had been smoking weed. He followed Justin back to a hotel, and when Justin’s car left a little while later, he followed him, trying to get the scoop. That’s why he was driving recklessly, because he wanted to get the photos of Justin Bieber getting caught smoking weed. This is awful.

14Adam Lambert Didn’t Love Les Miserables

A photo of Adam Lambert

First of all, I haven’t seen it yet. I know, but I just don’t enjoy going to see movies right when they’re released. There’s too many people, and it makes me uncomfortable and also I can’t focus on the movie because some dude keeps checking his stupid cell phone. It’s annoying, and I’d much rather wait a couple of weeks to ensure that the crowds have died down. But make no mistake, I am DYING to see Les Mis. Absolutely dying.

But Adam Lambert has already seen it. He’s, like, way unimpressed, and here are the tweets to prove it:

Les Mis: Visually impressive w great Emotional performances. But the score suffered massively with great actors PRETENDING to be singers.

…it’s an opera. Hollywoods movie musicals treat the singing as the last priority. (Dreamgirls was good)

Anne Hathaway as Fantine and Enjolras were the exceptions for me.

Helena B Carter and Sasha B Cohen were great too.

And I do think it was cool they were singing live- but with that cast, they should have studio recorded and sweetened the vocals

Eponine’s voice was cool too…

I felt like I should ignore the vocals and focus on the emotional subtext- but the singing was so distracting at times it pulled me out.

The industry will say “these actors were so brave to attempt singing this score live”but why not cast actors who could actually sound good?

Sorry for being so harsh but it’s so True!

I’m so glad we are all discussing this now! Look-I grew up w this musical and so my expectations are quite high. Didn’t mean to b negative.

One more clarification: DO go see it for Anne Hathaways performance. It’s was breathtaking.

So basically, Adam Lambert hates Hugh Jackman. That’s it, right? And probably Russell Crowe, maybe Amanda Seyfried. Which is kind of weird, because all of my nerdy theatre friends went crazy over this movie, and they didn’t have anything negative to say about Hugh’s performance. It seems like Anne Hathaway was completely amazing, according to every review I’ve ever read, and that Russell Crowe just did not sound good at all. But that’s weird that Adam didn’t like Hugh Jackman, one of the actors who is actually very experienced in musical theatre.

Did you guys see this yet? Should I be as psyched as I am? Does Adam Lambert need to shut his stupid face?

2Oh, Lindsay’s Just Going to Stay Home Tonight

A photo of Lindsay Lohan

Guys, it’s New Year’s Eve! Can you even believe it? 2012 has been a hell of a year, and tonight is the night that we get embarrassingly wasted, like super mega crazy drunk, to celebrate it*. Are you pumped? Have you started pre-gaming yet?

Well, Lindsay hasn’t. Nope, she hasn’t had a drop of booze to drink, probably in years. So she’s not pre-gaming, and she’s definitely not going to party tonight. Got it? She’s in London, and she’s planning to have a “small, quiet dinner” before going “straight back to the hotel” to “chill” with some people. And she’s doing all that because she wants to look good for her judge so she doesn’t go to jail. Oh, and probably also so that she can focus on stalking that one guy from that one boy band that she hung out with for a hot minute.

So now that we know that we don’t have to worry about Lindsay tonight, what are your plans for the evening?

*Or not. I’m going to be watching The Muppets and drinking hot chocolate, because that’s how I party these days.
