Christopher McDonald, perhaps best known for playing Shooter McGavin in Happy Gilmore, was arrested for alleged drunk driving. He was pulled over and arrested for DWI this morning (Wednesday, October 16). Here’s more from Us Weekly:
The arrest took place in Wilmington, North Carolina, where he is currently filming the movie The Squeeze.
TMZ first reported the arrest and reported that law enforcement claimed McDonald’s blood alcohol level was .15, which is almost double the legal limit.
This means that he now has something in common with Dina Lohan (also arrested for driving drunk) and to an extent, Reese Witherspoon (though she herself was not charged with DWI as she was not the one driving, she was arrested for disorderly conduct and was drunk. Her arrest took place while she was out of Los Angeles, filming.)
Celebs, get it together. Can’t you hire someone to drive you? And why are you getting so drunk when you’ve been hired to shoot a film? Even if you don’t have to be on set the next day, it’s unprofessional as hell to drive intoxicated during what is essentially a business trip.

Miley Cyrus wrecked her competition when her album, BANGERZ, debuted #1 on Billboard’s Top 200 album chart. Though E Online reported that she reached #1 on the iTunes charts as well, BANGERZ is currently at #5. Pearl Jam’s “Lighting Bolt” has the #1 spot — at least for now. These things can change pretty quickly and frequently, as we saw with Gaga’s “Applause” single. Wonder if her album will debut as as strongly as Miley’s.
I would guess Miley’s “Wrecking Ball” video gave the album an extra push to the #1 spot.
Will you be buying it, or at the very least, listening to it on Spotify?

This is such a non-story, but basically Taylor Swift is going to be the first solo female to play a stadium tour in Australia later this year since Madonna did it 20 years ago, which led reporters to ask her if she thinks of herself as being as big as Madonna. Because of course. As if she’s going to say yes! Anyway…
Here’s what Taylor told The AP:
“I would never see myself that way. I see myself as kind of this girl who writes songs in her bedroom.
“You can kind of dress it up all you want and you can put together an amazing theatrical production, you can become a better performer as time goes by, and you can try to excite people, but I’m always going to be a girl who writes songs in her bedroom in my own personal perception of myself.
“And I think it’s important that I don’t necessarily think too hard about what everybody else’s perception of me is or else I’d just get completely lost in it. It’s just easier to think of myself that way.”
Good answer! Let’s be honest – Taylor Swift knows her place – she’s a self-focused songwriter who does her little kiss and tell tracks and that’s fine. She’s talented and does her part, but I don’t think she’s big-headed in any way.

Robin Thicke and Paula Patton have one of the weirdest marriages pretty much ever. He goes around singing about forcing himself on women and sticking his finger up their asses and she sorta just sits there and smiles and says how in love they are. Some reports have even claimed that she suggests he cheats on her in front of her face and is totally kewl with him being a misogynistic asshole. That seems to be more and more the case, especially after her recent joke bragging in Glamour about how Robin has turned her into a “bad girl” and “ruined her”.
GLAMOUR: You guys still seem very passionate. He did say in an interview that he turned you into a bad girl.
PAULA PATTON: He ruined me! Gosh, I hope I’m still a good girl and a bad girl at the same time. And I think that every girl should know the bad girl inside her—and that doesn’t make her bad, you know?
GLAMOUR: So in the “Blurred Lines” video, there’s that balloon message—“Robin Thicke has a big d-ck”…
PAULA PATTON: It’s cool, it’s funny, it’s awesome!
GLAMOUR: Yes, it’s definitely all of those things. But we have to ask: Is it accurate?
PAULA PATTON: Robin’s like, “Listen, if I’m, you know, in the Miami Heat’s locker room, I don’t know where I stand, but.…” But I think that the statement is fairly accurate!
Seriously, someone get me a barf bag because I’m seriously about to lose everything I’ve ever eaten. “It’s cool, it’s funny, it’s awesome”? Uh… no. And I don’t think she really believes that either (and if she does, she needs some help). I’m not here to tell anyone how to live their lives or their relationships, but for real? First of all, it’s corny when women talk about how some dude helped them “find the bad girl” inside themselves. There are a whole slew of issues that go along with that, but we won’t go there. But seriously, these two… SMH. Robin Thicke might HAVE a big dick, but he is also IS a big dick, and I think that’s a much more important issue.

In case you missed it, Britney Spears‘ new album will be called Britney Jean and it’s gonna be… I dunno, probably slightly disappointing but still totally listenable, if ‘Work Bitch’ is anything to go by. She’s also just inked a deal for a Las Vegas residency but despite all this being on the horizon, she’s already looking forward to taking a long break.
Appearing on Nick Grimshaw’s Breakfast Show on Radio 1 this morning, Britney was asked if she’d ever have imagined she’d be putting out an eighth album, to which she put on an English accent and replied, “Never in my wildest dreams! I’ll take a break after this one for a while.”
Like, girl? You haven’t even started promo for this one. You need to chill (and maybe that’s exactly your point). To further prove the fact that Brit Brit has problems even with scripted answers not sounding robotic, here’s what she said when Nick asked her if she likes performing her old material:
“I don’t like performing my old stuff. I like performing my new stuff. I do it for the fans because they like the old hits, but I prefer the new stuff.”
So is it the new stuff you like, then? You like the new stuff as opposed to old stuff? Sorry, Britney, I think I missed it – which is it you like performing? Was it the new stuff? Bless her. She also did a sweet horse impression on air. Ha!
