I’m so sorry, you guys. I know that when you started your day, when you got on your computer and came over here to Evil Beet to check out the goings on, it never even entered your mind that this was a possibility. I know it never entered mine. I actually wasn’t too sure we’d hear all that much about poor Lana Del Rey ever again, ever since her tour was postponed back in February. But here we are. And I’m not too sure how we got here.
By the way, that photo up there was taken backstage at an awards show in Germany last week. I have no idea what Barry Manilow has to do with anything, but that’s usually the case. However, you can see the new lovebirds, Lana and Marilyn Manson, up there, pressed close together. That’s something, isn’t it?
Here’s something else: the actual rumor itself. Be warned, it’s pretty racy!
Shock rocker Marilyn Manson has sparked rumors he’s dating rising star Lana Del Rey after they were spotted sneaking into a hotel together.
The pair hooked up at a restaurant in Berlin, Germany the night before the Echo Awards on Thursday and were seen leaving the eatery together in a mini-van after midnight.
Del Rey was booked into the city’s Concorde Hotel but was spotted arriving with Manson at his hotel, the Grand Hyatt, and they were then photographed sneaking into the elevator together, according to local publication B.Z.
OMG, scandal upon scandal!!!
But really, something about this just makes me feel all icky and gross, and I’m not quite sure what it is. While I do enjoy Lana Del Rey, I don’t love her to the point of having serious, serious issues with her taste in men like I would with other celebrities. And while Marilyn Manson generally gives me the willies, this still feels weird in a slightly different way …
Oh, God. I figured out what it is, why this is so gross to me: who’s going to tell poor little Taylor Momsen?

January Jones is one of those celebrities that I don’t know a whole lot about. Like, I know that she’s on Mad Men, and I know she was pretty mediocre in that X-Men movie. I also know that Zach Galifianakis is not a fan of hers, which speaks volumes to me. But probably the most I know about January Jones is that she’s the single mother of a baby boy and that no one has any idea who the father is. The most media attention January Jones has ever gotten was for the case of the mysterious paternity, and I was pretty certain that it would the be the most attention she’d ever get.
Oh, but wait, because it turns out that she’s eating her placenta:
Jones tells PEOPLE that the biggest challenge of being a mom on set was the exhaustion. “It was hard to work long days and then go home and not sleep,” says the actress. “It’s getting harder, not easier, so I’m a little concerned!”
Jones’s secret to staying high energy through the grueling shooting schedule? “I have a great doula who makes sure I’m eating well, with vitamins and teas, and with placenta capsulation.”
You read right: Jones is eating her own placenta. “Your placenta gets dehydrated and made into vitamins,” she explains. “It’s something I was very hesitant about, but we’re the only mammals who don’t ingest our own placentas.”
Jones has taken the capsules every day since right after she had her son, and also anytime she feels tired or down. Jones insists, “It’s not witch-crafty or anything! I suggest it to all moms!”
I didn’t mislead you, did I? You didn’t think that January Jones had a bucket of placenta in the fridge that she pulled out and gnawed on whenever she felt a little tired, did you? Oh, goodness.
But you know, I’m sure that this is a perfectly wonderful thing to do. I’m sure that for some people, it’s beautiful and natural and the right thing to do. And she’s right, many animals do ingest their placentas after birth. What could be better? But here’s the flip side: animals ingest their placenta after giving birth mostly to get some solid nutrition and to get rid of the decaying organ that might attract predators, and neither of those issues really apply to humans. Most of the time we can hop on over to a grocery store or restaurant if we need a good meal, and in several cases, a woman delivering a child doesn’t have to worry about nearby wolves getting the scent of the placenta. Not to mention, whoa. Whoa, January Jones. You seriously are doing this. Wow.
Then again, maybe I’m just being close-minded on this one. Maybe January Jones is ushering in the future. Maybe by the time I have a kid, it’ll be standard procedure to whisk away the placenta, hang it up to dry for a few hours, then break off a few pieces for the new mothers. Whoa.

Because that’s what normal people do, isn’t it? They watch some heartwarming video in the morning to make them cry, and then in the afternoon they pull out a solid excerpt from a good book for some midday tears, and they end the day by thinking about the top five saddest moments from their life and reliving them? And they see monster hands reaching for them out of the corners of their eyes? This is what everyone does, right? Right?
Anyway, it doesn’t matter if all of that is normal or not, because every one of you who watches this video will surely burst into tears, or at least get some moisture in them eyeballs. Ok, at the very least, you’ll smile a little. This video is that powerful.
It’s a video of a recent audition for Britain’s Got Talent, and it’s inspiring. The video features a seventeen-year-old boy named Jonathan Antoine, his BFF Charlotte, and his unbelievably beautiful singing voice. What makes it all the better, of course, is Simon Cowell‘s reaction to the whole thing. As Jonathan and Charlotte make their way onstage, Simon leans over to fellow judge Carmen Electra and says “just when you think things couldn’t get any worse.” His remark wasn’t really surprising – Charlotte looked pretty put together, but Jonathan looked like your average socially awkward teenage boy, and even though he’s very manly, Simon Cowell isn’t exactly known for being the sweetest dude ever – but boy, does he change his tune after Jonathan starts singing. Just go back up there and skip to about the 2:16 mark to see Simon’s face. Priceless.
People are calling this kid the next Susan Boyle, I guess because she was on the same show and was also shy and awkward, and also because apparently most people are super surprised when conventionally unattractive people have talents. Whatever the reason, I’d say that the future is looking pretty bright for young Jonathan Antoine here. Oh, and, uh, Charlotte too, I guess.
Did you cry? You cried, didn’t you?

Probably one of the most frustrating things about Lady Gaga is that she’s a really pretty woman with tons of talent who insists on covering it all up. All the platforms and the crazy hats and the shitty music just completely distract me from what she could be.
For example, take a gander at that picture up there. Gorgeous, right? Those eyebrows. I know that she’s probably wearing a touch of natural makeup, but this is probably as fresh faced as she’s ever going to get. Isn’t that so tragic? Of course I get that she loves what she’s doing and she’s into being flashy and ridiculous, but that doesn’t mean I can’t long for a simpler Gaga. That I can’t yearn for the universe where I can walk into a store and purchase the latest album from one of my favorite singer/songwriters, Stefani Germanotta. Because I do.
If this isn’t enough of a Lady Gaga update for you, since we’ve just entered a dark period where Lady Gaga is refusing to talk, let me share with you a few of her tweets from this past month, ok?
Listening to HAIR, singing into hairbrush. I think I forgot I’m a pop singer for 5 whole minutes + then remembered I GET TO TOUR THIS SHIZ!
Oh the irony of winning “Most Pretentious Album Ever” from none other than NME. *eyeroll* I might laugh forever + then return to narcissism
Last night I saw half of The Born This Way Ball stage completely built for rehearsal. I got the worst goosebumps, and i thought to myself I have prepared for this moment since I was six, leaving for the talent show while my mother asked me why I had to wear a crop top with my side pony tail, lippystick and little halter I replied “PUHHLEAZE mother I’ve been rehearsing FOR WEEKS.”
Love getting my ass kicked in rehearsal. Everything hurts and I love it. Broke every nail and tangled every hair this week. Bad to the Bone.
People ask me why I wear veils. I reply, I’m mourning. Mourning what? Well I figure something shitty must be going on somewhere.
See? She’ll never be too far away from us.
