Did you know Megan Fox had a career before Transformers? Yeah, color me surprised, too. Fox, who worked with the Olsen sisters back in 2001 on one of their productions called Holiday in the Sun, recently interviewed and discussed the Olsen twins (for some reason) and claimed that working with the two was weird, and that the girls were “socially awkward.” Megan also intimates that both Mary-Kate and Ashley are “crazy,” and claims that they have phobias:
“They’re nice girls. The first time I had ever been around someone really famous was them. We were kids, I was about 15 and so were they … I saw how awkward socially they were with large groups of people because they had been famous their whole lives and looked at their whole lives and I didn’t understand why anyone would be like that. I had no understanding about why you would shut down and be afraid and have phobias, but as it happens to you you sort of develop them and become crazy.”
Um, OK. They might be a little eccentric (God, am I really defending the Olsen twins?), but if you don’t shut the fuck up, Megan, they’ll do something “crazy” and buy your soul. I mean, every billionaire makes bad investments sometimes, you know?

The music video for “Love the Way You Lie,” Eminem’s song with Rihanna that you’ve probably heard a couple dozen times if you listen to the radio, was released last night, and it’s already got a lot of people up in arms. The video, which features a relationship between Megan Fox and Dominic Monaghan, plus Rihanna singing in front of a burning house and Eminem rapping out in a field, tells the story of your average incredibly toxic abusive relationship: Megan and Dominic take turns being violent, then they make out, then the cycle repeats.
The worry seems to be that the video will make domestic violence seem sexy, what with Megan Fox being involved and all the intense kisses that happen. Personally, I don’t get that from the video. No matter how sexy a kiss is, if it comes after a dude punches a hole in the wall right next to your head, it’s probably not the best plan. Likewise, no matter how attracted you are to your significant other, if things are so abusive, it’s not going to work out well for anyone, and I think the video makes that extremely clear (spoiler alert: everyone but Rihanna ends up on fire).
“It’s something that, you know, [Eminem and I have] both experienced, you know, on different sides, different ends of the table. It just was authentic. It was real. It was believable for us to do a record like that, but it was also something that needed to be done, and the way he did it was so clever. He pretty much just broke down the cycle of domestic violence, and it’s something that a lot of people don’t have a lot of insight on, so this song is a really, really powerful song, and it touches a lot of people.”
So what do you guys think? Do you have a problem with the video and the message it sends or do you think it’s powerful (not caring is an option too)?

Our lady Megan Fox (who, incidentally, I dreamed about last night, and no, guys, I won’t share), is moving up and beyond box-office hits like Transformers and circus freak sex movies.
Fox is now the new face of Armani cosmetics (and wow, I thought the extent of Armani’s “branching out” beyond super-amazing haute couture was limited to overpriced boxer shorts sold at discount outlets) and sources say that the promo tour is going to start in October. Megan’s thoughts?:
“Mr. Armani is an iconic visionary for all things fashion. I’m honored to be associated with him and part of this campaign.”
Whatever pays the bills, girlfriend. And hey, good for you. That 90210 money isn’t gonna last you forever. It’s also a hell of a lot better than, say, Revlon or something.

Too bad it’s not a movie or anything.
According to E!, Megan Fox is “thisclose” to starring in Eminem’s new music video, “Love the Way You Lie,” which is a collaboration with Rihanna for those of you who don’t listen to Eminem. That’s pretty neat, I guess – I haven’t listened to Eminem since “Superman,” and I don’t care much for Rihanna – but guess who else is already going to be in the video?
Dominic Monaghan! Or Charlie from Lost or one of the adorable hobbits from Lord of the Rings. It doesn’t matter, because no matter what you remember him from, he’s going to be undeniably, preciously out of place in an Eminem video, and I cannot wait to see it.
And if Megan does appear in the video, she and Dominic will have some “really intense” sexy scenes. Amidst Eminem’s rapping. Why has this not happened years ago?

Late last month, Megan Fox wed her on-again-off-again boyfriend Brian Austin Green in a small ceremony. While the marriage itself seems like it’s going to be a horrible idea (don’t you think they kinda just got married to ‘get it over with’? Like, they somehow thought they’d stop breaking up if they finally got hitched?), the ring, which was just spotted yesterday, is pretty gorgeous.
Assuming that rock is real and Megan didn’t buy it for herself, it says a lot about BAG’s ability to scrimp and save. With that guy working as little as he does, you know he used some of his David Silver money to pay for that diamond.

I’ll let you draw conclusions as to who’s who in this scenario, since you all probably have some pretty hardcore opinions on the vanity of both Megan Fox and now-husband, Brian Austin Green. But yeah. Megan Fox and long-term boyfriend, Brian Austin Green — or “Bag,” as he’s known in my circle of friends — were married “late last week,” according to sources.
The couple tied the knot on Hawaii’s Big Island, where there was said to be only six other people in attendance, which is mildly unsurprising since Fox is a self-proclaimed anthropophobic, and Bag probably hasn’t had any real live friends since Beverly Hills 90210.
Meg and Brian moved pretty stealthily on this one, too: the two were only confirmed to be engaged like, what, a week ago or something?
It’s a shame we didn’t know about this sooner. I’d have liked to have seen photos of the, ah, virginal Fox wearing a white sheath, and Bag’s ankles handcuffed to Fox’s, since that’s probably the only way he could keep her in one place for a minute. The dude probably still can’t believe his “luck.”
I wonder if Foxy dropped (and lost!) her wedding band in the sand, too. Bad omens are upon us, guys. Bad, bad omens indeed.
