26Oh God. It’s Happening. The Scarlett Johansson Album of Tom Wait Covers is Actually Fucking Happening.

The first single off the album, called “Falling Down,” is streaming on AOL.

Listen to it here

Um, I don’t really know who Tom Waits is, but this sounds like something you’d find on the old masters of a Sarah McLachlan recording session back in 1992.

It’s not, like, super bad or anything. I mean, it’s still a hundred times better than anything Heidi Montag’s come up with. But, Jesus, it’s so, so strange.

Did I mention I can’t believe this is actually fucking happening?

So, so weird.

And, yeah, this is a photo of Scarlett from 1996. Because I accidentally had my WireImage account set up to display search results in ascending chronological order, and so when I was looking for a good photo of Scarlett to use for this post, this photo was the first to show up. And I was like, “So, Scarlett, you wanna be really fucking weird for no good reason? Well. Two can play at that game.”

30Trying to Work Up the Nerve to Kill Yourself?

I know the feeling.

It’s like, “Damn, life isn’t worth living. Shit never gets any better. I’m tired of fighting. I’m just done.” And you try to figure out how you’re going to off yourself, but everything you come up with sounds either too painful, too scary, too disgusting, or too likely to fail. You need that final push of courage to go through with it. That final straw. That kick in the balls, that thing that cements in your mind, once and for all, that this world will never be a safe place for you.

I’ve found it.

Ladies and gentlemen, the latest YouTube episode of the Miley and Mandy Show.

8Oh, So NOW People Magazine Decides to Make a Big Deal Over Lindsay Lohan’s Drinking

After I made a huge fuss last night about how People magazine reported Lindsay Lohan’s wagon-tumbling adventures without even batting an eyelash, the mainstream mag decided, today, that they probably oughtta make a fuss themselves.

In an article posted early this afternoon, People writers say:

Is Lindsay Lohan back to her hard-partying ways? The actress – who completed a stint in Cirque Lodge rehab last September – is raising eyebrows again after she was spotted on Saturday drinking Grey Goose and Red Bull cocktails at a party deejayed by pal Samantha Ronson. Lohan, 21, smoked cigarettes, chatted with friends and hit the dance floor at Hawaiian Tropic Zone in New York as Ronson spun tunes until 4 a.m.

Lohan’s rep was not immediately available for comment.

So, okay, that’s something, at least.

34Can We Please Talk About Lisa Loeb’s Glasses?


I’m really torn on this issue, and I want to hear opinions from you guys.

Lisa Loeb is wearing the same dorky glasses she wore at the beginning of her career.

At right: Lisa Loeb, at the 1993 Grammy awards.

On one hand, in a world where celebrities seem obsessed with constantly reinventing themselves, it’s kind of refreshing to see someone sticking to the same schtick for 15 years.

On the other hand, Jesus fucking Christ, is anyone else soooo sick of those glasses?

Kendra Wilkinson Playboy Olive Garden, Pictures, Photos


This is the coolest thing ever! And also kind of the weirdest thing ever.

Playboy has launched a nationwide search for the hottest women who work for my FAVORITE restaurant!!!! They’re going to do a “Girls of Olive Garden” pictorial!!!

Hugh Hefner and Kendra Wilkinson will handpick the winners.

Reps from Olive Garden say they have no involvement in this — they won’t encourage their servers to get naked, but they won’t fire them for it, either.

Man, at first I was like, “Olive Garden? Why Olive Garden?” And then I remembered that Kendra, just like me, truly appreciates the finer things in life, and Olive Garden is her favorite restaurant, too. Something tells me this was all Kendra’s idea. You’re such a rock star, Kendra!!!

When these pictures come out, I assure you they will be on this website, lawyers or not. I have never been so excited for a Playboy spread in my life!!!
