Their hair extensions fall out!

It gives me a tiny bit of joy to know that, despite having 8 million people to tend to her hair at all times, Lindsay Lohan still occasionally loses an extension.

Here she is with SamRo leaving Bardot in WeHo last night.

Okay, seriously, on a scale of 1 to 10 — with 1 being a Duggar child and 10 being Lindsay Lohan — how obnoxious and self-absorbed is Jaden Smith going to be by the time he’s a teenager?

Because I’m thinking, like, 11.

Here’s Jaden pimping out his new flick, The Day the Earth Stood Still, in Japan.

41Jeremy Piven Overdosed on Sushi

Holy tuna! So you know the high mercury levels that Jeremy Piven cited in his decision to abruptly quit his Broadway play? It was apparently the result of … too much sushi?

“He was eating sushi twice a day and taking some Chinese herbs,” Dr. Carlon Colker, Piven’s physician and the executive officer and medical director of Peak Wellness, tells E! News. “I tested his heavy metals and his mercury was amazingly, shockingly high.”

Colker said that Piven’s mercury levels were roughly six times the amount an average body can handle. Colker said he made the diagnosis, as well as the play-exiting recommendation, after weeks of the Entourage star complaining of fatigue, with symptoms coming to a head this week.

The good doctor said the recently minted Golden Globe nominee experienced a dizzy spell and was unable to remember his lines, a one-two combo that apparently so worried the doc, he sent the actor to receive medical care.

“He was literally paralytic. He couldn’t move after the shows.”

Colker was quick to note that his recommendation to leave the play after two months, as well as Piven’s decision, did not come about lightly.

“He is someone who has been acting for three decades, 17 hours a day. He’s really been an iron horse, so this is unusual for him. He really wanted to tough this out. It’s always been his dream to be on Broadway. But sometimes, the risks outweigh the benefits.”

The risks associated with mercury poisoning run the gamut from cardiac arrest, kidney failure, psychological problems and sometimes even death.

So there you have it, kids. Next time, think twice before downing a shitload of spicy tuna rolls at happy hour. Just stick to the martinis.

Has anyone ever heard of this problem? I’ve never heard of anyone overdosing on sushi before.

I am off to hit the streets to forage for food. There’s nothing to eat in my house and I’m starving!

This shit should keep you guys amused for a little while.

Thanks Mike!
