I noticed that on Fridayish a lot of celebrities tweeted about something called “Carmageddon,” and I thought it was so weird that a 1997 computer game was suddenly getting this much visibility. So I googled for answers. Turns out the LAPD actually asked celebrities to go on Twitter and announce that the 405 Freeway will be closed all weekend. Yawn.
Speaking of the freeway, this is not Kathy Griffin‘s best look:
However, this is a very good look for Ricky Gervais:
In spite of his technical difficulties, I still say Steve Martin is the only old man who should be allowed on Twitter:
As for Sarah Silverman, she is so right about this next thing. She should be a theater critic!
I think Yoko Ono is trying to get all existential and meta:
(I read that and snorted, and then I looked up and stared at my off-kilter lampshade, which is always and irretrievably off-kilter, and then I sloooowly realized that maybe Yoko Ono wants me to tilt my entire living room to match my one lampshade.)
Rob Schneider hasn’t made a good movie in ages—or ever?—but his career could be worse. He definitely has his priorities straight:
P.S. Jerry Seinfeld just joined Twitter. Should we tell him about Google+? Or should we let him wait five years?
I can’t really explain to you why I love Helen Mirren so much, but I really do. She’s equal parts funny and classy, which I think is pretty rare to find nowadays. And since I love her so much, it just stands to reason that some of you would love her too, and if some of you love her too, then some of you have to want to see her topless.

We all know that Lady Gaga and her beauty routine are predictably gross, so even though this little piece of news that her hair is falling out, causing her to turn to that time-honored product, Rogaine, comes from The National Enquirer, I’m inclined to believe it. I mean, we’ve all seen Gaga’s tired ass bleached hair, we knew it was coming sooner or later.
Here’s the piece from The Enquirer via Celebitchy:
Here’s the bald truth about Lady Gaga – totally freaked because her hair’s suddenly falling out like crazy, she’s desperately daubing her scalp with hair-restoring Rogaine during her Monster Ball Tour, reports a concert spy!
“She’s extremely upset, and goes ballistic backstage because whenever she drags a comb through her frazzled, over processed, bleached tresses, hair’s everywhere – in the comb, on the floor, in her hands! It’s literally falling out! She calls it her ‘head of glass’ because it breaks off… like glass.”
Gaga’s praying for a Rogaine miracle, but hairstylists gave her this hardheaded advice: Stop bleaching and start wearing wigs until your hair’s healthy!
So basically all I can see in my mind right now is that scene from The Craft, you know, the one where the bitchy girl sits in the locker room, all crying and whining because her hair started falling out in clumps in the shower because she was such a bitchy bitchy bitch? Yeah, that, except with Lady Gaga. So I guess with this post all I’m saying is “try not to bleach your hair too much” and “how awesome was The Craft?”
