25Green Carpet Fashion at the Teen Choice Awards

Amanda Bynes Hits the Bottle at the 2009 Teen Choice Awards

It’s red carpet time! Or, I guess in this case, it’s green carpet time. Young Hollywood turned out in droves for Sunday night’s Teen Choice Awards. I don’t know who won what award because I’m not a teen, and it’s not my choice. I chose to watch football. But I do enjoy seeing who wore what to the awards show.

The green carpet was shot outside, in natural light– something for which Beet always cuts celebs a little extra slack. But not me. Because its the same light that all of us have to live every day of our lives in. So when a celeb shows up on the red carpet in natural light that reveals their haggard eye bags and pancake makeup, I feel highly vindicated. Case in point: Amanda Bynes (above). I’m not sure what kinds of bottles she’s been hitting, or how often, but I’m convinced that bottles are definitely being hit.

I’m also convinced that inside Rumer Willis’ gullet is a pelican desperately struggling to swallow a fish.

Britney Spears, on the other hand, looked fabulous. I’ve never been a big fan of her fashion choices, but her dress tonight was sexy with a touch of  class.

Miley Cyrus showed up in an outfit that may have been made up of pieces from her Wal-mart line. I have nothing against Wal-mart, and definitely nothing against Miley, but I’m not so sure that was the best fashion choice for an awards show. Nothing says tacky like a darkly colored bra showing through a wife beater.

Other atendees included Robert Pattinson, looking drugged and disheveled as ever, Kristen Bell in my least favorite celeb fashion trend of the last few years (a jumpsuit), the Jonas Brothers, Fergie, Emma Roberts, Jordin Sparks, Kristen Stewart, Alexis Bledel, Ashley Tisdale, Selena Gomez, and Kat Von D.

So who had your favorite look of the evening? Worst?

13The Most Boring “Celebrities” On The Planet Hold A Press Conference

It’s Friday, I’m feeling liberated, I’m just going to speak my mind — because I’m usually so inhibited — and tell it like it is.  I do not understand the attraction, appeal or interest related to the cast of Twilight.  They don’t have enough spirit to hold up their heads or their moods.  That whole greasy, unwashed, flannel-donning era is so done,  Played out via grunge, Seattle, 1992.

Anyway, Kristen Stewart, Taylor Lautner and Robert Pattinson did a press conference at Comic-Con in San Diego.  Pattinson talks about the development of his character — he obviously takes this vampire shit really seriously — and Taylor Lautner spoke a little bit too.  

Personally, I like the part at the (approximately) 2:30 minute mark when Kristen Stewart tells the press core that no question is off-limits and then again at 3:00 when a reporter asks about the possibility of a real-life romance with Robert Pattinson and she refuses to answer that question.

Kristen, I know that your current fame is a completely annoying burden that you liken to a recurring yeast infection, but enjoy it now.  Once these Twilight movies are played out, you’ll be begging your agent to get you a Crest commercial.

“I definitely had a thing with Kristen.  Your first impulse is to ask her for her phone number.”

Robert Pattinson, confirming to Bop magazine that he had some sort of interaction with his Twilight co-start Kristen Stewart that extended beyond on-camera vampiring.

Now that this burning question has been answered, can I return to not caring?

25Robert Pattinson Hates New York Women

Robert Pattinson has taken a break from vampiring while he films Remember Me in New York City.  According to insiders, the pantywaist is troubled by all the attention his fame garners.  

“Robert is dying to get back home,” says an insider. “He’s so over everything. He’s overwhelmed by all the girls — they terrify him! He says girls grab his neck and clothing all of the time, and he’s not used to that. Fans don’t do that to him in London. Everyone there is a little cooler about the fame thing, which is what he’s used to.

He’s embarrassed by the way girls throw themselves at him. The girls here are stalking him. He stayed in two different hotels over the course of four days just to try to escape the fans who were following him. He’s afraid that if he gives a hand, they’ll take the whole arm. He’s being advised by security not to encourage the crowd, so he doesn’t even look up anymore.”

Who are these rabid women and where do they live?  I can’t even draft a profile in my mind as to what type of human being would be trying to jump on the dude from Twilight.  In my completely flummoxed state, I did find comfort in this comment made by the same insider:  ”Robert doesn’t understand why everyone is going so crazy over him.”  Neither.  Do.  I.

5Robert Pattinson Hit by Cab in New York

Robert Pattinson

This past Thursday the pale pretty-boy actor was in NYC filming for Remember Me when he was reportedly struck by a taxi cab while escaping the clutches of a gaggle of squealing female fans.

According to one onlooker, a large group of “hysterical” girls surrounded the actor when he exited a book store where he had been filming for the majority of the day. Five security guards attempted to escort Pattinson away from the “loud and upset” fans by hustling him across a rain soaked street, but neglected to look both ways before crossing.

At any rate, Pattinson appeared to be miraculously undamaged the following day as he rolled around in the sand at Rockaway Beach to shoot some scenes with Remember Me costar Emilie de Ravin (See the gallery). And justlikethat many of you now hate emile de Ravin.

The Taxi and Limousine Commission in New York City said there had been no official report of the incident, and eyewitnesses reported that it was more of a “graze” than an actual collision. Mysteriously, a large, hand-shaped dent was later found in the side of the offending taxi cab.
