Today's Evil Beet Gossip

Alexander Skarsgard and Kate Bosworth: Splitsville

A few days ago, a letter-writer emailed the Awful Truth, wondering why Kate Bosworth wasn’t around when Alex Skarsgård received his doctorate. A prescient question! Now we know the real reason we never see these kids together anymore: they totally aren’t dating.

After two years, the couple is dunzo, splitsville, finito, over. “It was very mutual,” Us reports, “and it happened a while ago.”

Mutual, huh? Lainey Gossip tells a different story:

I’ve also heard from multiple and varied contacts that [Kate Bosworth] keeps stalking his hangouts, just, like, dropping by the gym/cafe/whatever to see if he’s around, front like it would be an unplanned encounter, make him realize he misses her and wants her back. Apparently this has worked once.

Salacious! Sad, though, because we never had a chance to give this couple a nickname. Skarsworth? Bosgard? Well, whatever.

Rihanna Gets Hot for Glamour‘s September Issue

Girlfriend here is on the cover of Glamour and she’s got some business she wants to talk over with you.  For September 2011, Rihanna gets both sassy and serious.

On hating drama … and perfection: “I hate drama. But at the same time, nothing bothers me more than when life’s perfect. And that’s the sick part. I just love a challenge, whether it’s a relationship, my career, clothing…”

On her attention-getting sense of style: “Getting dressed, I want to pick the most bizarre pair of shorts so I can figure out how to make it look right, or work an outfit that will make people go, ‘What the hell is she wearing?’”

On dealing with how messy life can get: “I think honesty is the ultimate liberation in life. People want to shy away from the truth and keep sweeping it under the rug. But after a while, you pick up the rug and there’s just way too much dirt, so you might as well just be up front about it.”

On being a role model for young girls: “I want to set the right example and, at the same time, live my life….I feel like pop stars can’t be rock stars anymore because they have to be role models, and it takes the fun out of it for us, because we just want to have fun with art.”

On being a “man in the bedroom”: “I play a very dominant role in my life, in every aspect of it. And I like to feel like a lady still, at some point. I feel like that’s the time when a guy really gets to be a man, and I get to be a woman. And if I’m being a man in the bedroom too, there’s nothing really in it for me. ”

I suppose it’s alright. She’s, I think, coming more into her own, not placating the press, and not doing that whole ridiculous over-the-top thing that she was so famous for over the past year. It’s getting better, and that’s all I can ask. Also? At the end of the day, Rihanna is definitely one of those women who are way hotter when they’re not showing the world their private parts through a song.
