“I’m going vintage on the red carpet. I have lost 20 pounds, so now I can get into vintage, because the women back then were petite. They were very small.”

Fantasia Barrino, discussing what she’ll be wearing on the red carpet at the Grammys. Fantasia has recently announced that she is going back to finish high school, which is a good idea, because this is the stupidest thing I’ve ever heard. She makes it sound like humans as a species have evolved to be larger since the 1920s. You’re not wearing caveman clothes, Fantasia. Like she’s about to mention how gloves fit much better now that her thumbs are opposable.

Female celebrities back then were actually probably, on the whole, much larger than female celebrities today.

But congrats on the weight loss, Fantasia, and, yes, for the love of God, get back to school.

25Breaking: You Can Buy a 6-Bedroom Home for $1.3M in North Carolina!

Well … apparently Fantasia Barrino can’t.

…It looks like third season American Idol winner and 8-time Grammy nominated R&B singer Fantasia Barrino is about to get booted from one of her Charlotte, NC homes. According to recent reports and county records, big voiced Miss Barrino’s 6,232 square foot house has been foreclosed on and unless she can make good with a pile of cash will be auctioned to the highest bidder on January 12, 2009.

Property records show Miz Barrino purchased the 6 bedroom and 5.5 bathroom pond-front mansion on Bevington Place in March of 2007 for $1,300,000.

However, the children can rest easier knowing that it does not appear that Miz Barrino will go homeless as records show that she also owns a second house on nearby Seton House Lane that she purchased in July of 2004 for $740,000.

Seriously, though, can we please talk about this shit??? Look at that fucking house!!!! OMG!!! Do you know what you can buy with $1.3M in Seattle? A cottage! And in Los Angeles? A condo! Maybe! I’m gonna pack up my multitude of animals and move us to Charlotte, where we’ll live like KINGS on the amount of money I spend right now paying rent. Sheesh.

If you are currently running a major Britney-focused fansite, and you’d like to expand your Internet empire to cover the whole celeb gossip kingdom, now would really be the perfect time to shut down your Britney site, blame it on Britney’s loss of “identity and credibility,” and let gossip bloggers worldwide write about it, creating priceless hype for the project you hope to launch in the new year. Oh, someone already thought to do that? Damn. [The Blemish, World of Britney]

70% of Victoria Beckham’s weight is nipples. That’s nearly 35 pounds of nipples! [Agent Bedhead]
