Jon Hamm just got out of rehab – surprise!

jon hamm

Jon Hamm generally keeps a low profile. He’s handsome, he’s funny, he was on Mad Men… besides that, he sorta keeps himself to himself, which is a rarity in Hollywood and part of the reason he’s so damn likable. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that we’re, well, surprised to hear that Jon just got out of rehab for treatment for alcoholism.

Jon Hamm completed a 30-day rehab program for alcohol abuse, just days before the premiere of the last season of “Mad Men.”

We’re told Hamm checked himself into Silver Hill Hospital in New Canaan, Connecticut at the end of February. It’s a high-end facility.

The final season is already in the can.

Hamm’s people tell TMZ, “With the support of his longtime partner Jennifer Westfeldt, Jon Hamm recently completed treatment for his struggle with alcohol addiction. They have asked for privacy and sensitivity going forward.”

I don’t particularly know that 3 weeks of rehab is enough to cure anyone of anything (though with addiction, there is no “cure”, just a constant effort to maintain sobriety) and rehab does tend to be pretty trendy in Hollywood, like booking yourself into an extended spa, but I’ll try to hold back with my cynicism for the moment. Good for Jon for seeking treatment for his problem – hopefully he’s feeling stronger and will be able to maintain it.

Kylie Jenner is releasing her own single

kylie jenner music

Kylie Jenner‘s life (thankfully) somewhat of a mystery. She doesn’t seem to do very much, save for post selfies on Instagram and crash her car into things. She doesn’t go to school, despite the fact that technically she should still be in high school. She doesn’t use the obscene amount of money she has for good, though I assume she feels spending that money on endless plastic surgery to look like big sis Kim counts as “for good”. But listen, maybe I’m giving Kylie a hard time. After all, she’s actually ready to launch her singing career!

Kylie! Singing! With her statutory rapist! And possibly the worst “rapper” alive! Oh, does it get any better? I think the answer you’re looking for here is “NOPE!”

Admittedly, this MAY be fake. The pics are real – Kylie did a shoot in the Hollywood Hills with LA-based photographer Naeve Bozorgi this past week and plastered her Instagram with some of the shots, as you do. The above image with the potential single information also made the rounds, but Kylie herself hasn’t posted it, so who can say if this will turn up? Part of me secretly hopes it does. HOW AMAZINGLY BAD WILL IT BE? I mean, it’s (potentially) called “Forever Real”, for God’s sake. My heart lives in hope.

For now, here are some more of these ~artsy~ shots:

Justin Bieber has a new girlfriend

Justin Bieber is a changed man, now, and with his new-found ~ToTaLlY GoOd GuY~ image, he’s managed to pick up a new girlfriend/sex partner/whatever in model Ashley Moore. The pair were spotted at the Staples Center on Friday, where they watched the Clippers vs. Wizards game and got all nice and cozy. Justin even crawled into her lap like the wittle tiny baby he is.

Well, ain’t that sweet? They’ve seen each other on and off for a while now, it seems – even last summer, Justin was posting photos of Ashley on his Instagram page. Of course, you can’t really get a good look at her in these photos, so here she is from one of her modeling shots (which happens to be one of the ones Justin posted last July):

There you have it. Wonder how long this one will last?

‘The X-Files’ is coming back to our TV screens

mulder scully

It’s been 13 years since The X-Files left our TV screens, and thank fuck for that. I’ll admit it – I was a MASSIVE X-Files fan (even went all the way to San Fran to see David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson – though let’s be honest, I was there for Gillian – back in 2008) and absolutely loved the series… up until Season 8 or so, when all hell broke loose and it was a total disaster. By the time the Season 9 finale came ’round, I think we were all happy to bid adieu to the travesty the show had become. The 2008 movie didn’t do much to restore any faith in the franchise (though I think most M/S shippers were pretty happy to finally get some concrete proof of the relationship they knew existed for years) so I think we all pretty much assumed that was the end of that.

Except it’s not. The X-Files is coming back for a whole new six episode series on Fox – it’s official and the network announced it today.  Here’s the press release:

Thirteen years after the original series run, FOX has ordered the next mind-bending chapter of THE X-FILES, a thrilling, six-episode event series which will be helmed by creator/executive producer Chris Carter with stars David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson re-inhabiting their roles as iconic FBI Agents Fox Mulder and Dana Scully. This marks the momentous return of the Emmy- and Golden Globe Award-winning pop culture phenomenon, which remains one of the longest-running sci-fi series in network television history.

The announcement was made today by Dana Walden and Gary Newman, Chairmen and CEOs of Fox Television Group and Chris Carter, creator and executive producer of THE X-FILES. Production on THE X-FILES event series is set to begin in summer 2015. Further details remain under wraps and will be announced at a later date.

“I think of it as a 13-year commercial break,” said Carter. “The good news is the world has only gotten that much stranger, a perfect time to tell these six stories.”

“We had the privilege of working with Chris on all nine seasons of THE X-FILES – one of the most rewarding creative experiences of our careers – and we couldn’t be more excited to explore that incredible world with him again,” remarked Newman and Walden. “THE X-FILES was not only a seminal show for both the studio and the network, it was a worldwide phenomenon that shaped pop culture – yet remained a true gem for the legions of fans who embraced it from the beginning. Few shows on television have drawn such dedicated fans as THE X-FILES, and we’re ecstatic to give them the next thrilling chapter of Mulder and Scully they’ve been waiting for.”

I so wish I was excited for this. Will I watch it? Obviously – I’m not a heathen. Will I enjoy it? Eh, somehow I think I should refrain from getting my hopes too high.

James Franco: ‘I’m straight in my life and gay in my art’

james franco

The title of this article could have been “James Franco is fucking insane“, but I think that’s pretty widely known at this point. In a new interview with something called FourTwoNine Magazine, James is riffing on his sexuality – mainly about how he’s gay in public but straight in private, but it’s all just part of the performance, man.

“I like to think that I’m gay in my art and straight in my life. Although, I’m also gay in my life up to the point of intercourse, and then you could say I’m straight. So I guess it depends on how you define gay. If it means whom you have sex with, I guess I’m straight. In the twenties and thirties, they used to define homosexuality by how you acted and not by whom you slept with. Sailors would fuck guys all the time, but as long as they behaved in masculine ways, they weren’t considered gay.”

“I guess I mean that I like my queer public persona. I like that it’s so hard to define me and that people always have to guess about me. They don’t know what the hell is up with me, and that’s great. Not that I do what I do to confuse people, but as long as they are confused, I get time to play.”

“Maybe sex with a guy would change things, but I doubt it. Like I said, I’m gay in my art. Or, I should say, queer in my art. And I’m not this way for political reasons, although sometimes it becomes political, like when I voted for same-sex marriage, etc. But what it’s really about is making queer art that destabilizes engrained ways of being, art that challenges hegemonic thinking.”

“Because it means that I can be a figure for change. I am a figure who can show the straight community that many of their definitions are outdated and boring. And I can also show the gay community that many of the things about themselves that they are giving up to join the straight community are actually valuable and beautiful.”

I mean… what the hell did I just read? Does he even know what he’s saying? Because if so, he needs to enlighten the rest of us since it makes zero sense. He’s gay but he’s not gay but he’s queer as long as he’s not REALLY queer? WHY JAMES WHY?

Anyone want to venture a translation?

Taylor Swift will not be in porn, thank you

taylor swift

Taylor Swift is one smart lady. She knows there are some sickos out there in the world, and she’s beating them to the punch. Our Lady of the $40 Million Legs is ten steps ahead of anyone who might try to make a porn parody of her or Photoshop her body on a naked woman giving a rim job by purchasing up some porno domains before anyone could get to them.

report from CNN Money suggests that the musician has purchased some X-rated domains involving her name so that no one else on the internet can use them for more nefarious purposes.

Stuart Lawley, the CEO of ICM registry, reportedly told CNN Money that Swift’s management team has purchased and, as the company is in charge of .porn and .adult domains.

According to CNN, ICM is allowing a certain group of individuals and companies to jump on these domains before they’re open to the public for purchase on June 1. This move would allow those groups to protect their image before a random teenager on the internet locks them down and charges a premium for those groups to buy them back.

Smart move, I suppose – but it’s not like some asshole can’t buy, I dunno, or whatever, right? I mean, it’s good that she’s got a hold of these url extensions, but there are literally limitless combos people can make up if they really wanted to, so… I don’t know how successful this whole plan is.

I wonder what other celebs have gotten in on this to try and prevent issues later? I bet you Kim and Kanye have bought some to actually use for their nude “art”.

Scott Disick quits rehab, goes to the club

scott disick

Scott Disick‘s addiction to alcohol (and drugs, one would assume) recently hit fever pitch, leading him to seek “unconventional” rehab in the form of hallucinogenics down in Costa Rica. While you would think the completely lax approach would be more to Scott’s liking, apparently tripping balls in the jungle wasn’t quite chill enough for him, because he’s quit his rehab and decided to just go clubbing instead.

Scott Disick’s officially ditched rehab in Costa Rica … so he can spend quality time at the local nightclubs.

Disick was spotted hanging near the bar in a club called Rouge on Saturday night. Sporting a black tee and ball cap … Scott seemed like he was trying to keep a low profile — but hanging with a big bodyguard in purple ain’t exactly inconspicuous.

Witnesses tell us he also hit up a spot called Vertigo.

TMZ broke the story … Scott bailed on the Costa Rican rehab program after less than a week. He’s coming back to the states, and already has club gigs booked back here.

Wow, what a winner. Glad to see he’s dedicated to being a great partner to his longtime girlfriend and the three kids he begged to impregnate her with. Super classy.

Another piece of trash in the Kardashian garbage pile, I suppose :(
