Lindsay Lohan is finally growing up in London

Lindsay Lohan

You know, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but Lindsay Lohan might finally be getting her act together. She relocated to London earlier this year to take part in David Mamet’s Speed-the-Plow (which was less than stellar, but A+ for effort) and now she’s just, you know, living life… AWAY from all the party animals that got her in trouble back in New York and Los Angeles. She loves her new life so much, in fact, that she’s vowed to never go back!

From The Guardian:

“In LA I didn’t know what to do apart from go out every night,” she says. “That’s when my friends were free. And I would go out and there would be all these cameras there and that’s when it became difficult.”

Lohan has lived in the capital for nine months now, has a lease for another year on her flat in the West End, and is currently planning to make it her permanent home. She can’t emphasise enough the liberation the move has given her. “I can go for a run here on my own,” she says. “I do every morning, early, and I think how my friends in New York would still be up partying at that time. I needed to grow up and London is a better place for me to do that than anywhere else.”

The defining moment of this shift, she says, came on a holiday she took to Greece in the summer. “It was,” she says, still thrilled at the idea, “the first time I have ever just been on a vacation by myself. I just wandered about on my own! I turned off my phone. It was so extraordinarily freeing for me. Like another life.” The world, which had for so long reflected back to her an ugly image of herself, was suddenly just “out there”.

“I won’t live in LA again, hell no,” she says. “My friends tell me shit when they come over I don’t want to hear. I don’t even know who got married and who got pregnant. You turn on the news in LA and it is all gossip about people. All the stuff that is going on in the world right now and this gossip is the news?” She laughs. “I love the BBC. I haven’t heard myself mentioned on TV since I have been here. That has been really weird for me, and great.”

I mean, she sounds coherent, right? Sober? Her Instagram seems fairly self-absorbed, but that’s just celebrity. It’s notably lacking in the insanity department. I hate to get excited too early, but I actually have high hopes for her. Our last story on her was a month ago, the one before that was another month before. She’s staying out of the spotlight and I think it’s doing her a world of good. Get it, Lindsay!

Kourtney Kardashian gave birth to a son this weekend

We only found out a week ago that Kourtney Kardashian‘s third child with Scott Disick would be a boy, and now that little boy is here, because Kourtney gave birth this weekend!

The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star and Scott Disick welcomed their third child, a boy, on Sunday, Dec. 14, PEOPLE confirms — the same day their son Mason Dash turned 5.

The new baby also joins big sister Penelope Scotland, 2.

No news on what this baby will be called, but I think it’s a pretty safe bet that it won’t be a K-name… thank God. I’m really glad that the Kardashian kids have broken Kris’ streak of awful kids names that all start with the same letter.

Also, side note, but I bet Mason is gonna be piiiiiissed that he’s gotta share his birthday with his brother. That’s his special day!

Mazel to these two and we look forward (I mean, I guess…) to finding out the name!

Hayden Panettiere Is A Mom!

Hayden+Panettiere

Hayden Panettiere gave birth to a baby girl on Tuesday, December 9. This one kind of slipped by me. Totally forgot she was pregnant. Sort of forgot she existed, though I’ll never forget about her performance as Amanda Knox in that Lifetime film. That was great.

Anyway the baby is named Kaya Evdokia Klitschko, and her dad is the supertall Wladimir Klitschko. The kid weighs 7 lbs., 14 oz., according to PEOPLE. Their wedding is still on hold, but as for the kid, they are, “over the moon.” Of course they are. That’s what new parents always say. They are also “madly in love” — again, another classic.

But anyway, congrats to them and their healthy baby!

Taylor Swift’s “Most Cherished Possession” Came From Lena Dunham

Taylor Swift turned 25 on December 13 and celebrated with a star-studded pizza party at her apartment. I GUESS MY INVITE GOT LOST IN THE MAIL, TAYLOR. Anyway, she and Lena Dunham are apparently friends, although I don’t see her in this amazing pic from Taylor’s birthday party (though I do spot Jay Z and Beyoncé!):

But I digress. Anyway, in addition to the above photo, Taylor shared another birthday related pic on Instagram: this one of her “new most cherished possession” — a cat necklace Lena Dunham got her. But not just of any cat, of Taylor’s cat, Meredith Grey (named after the Grey’s Anatomy character.) Taylor has two cats, the other is named Olivia Benson, after the Law & Order: SVU character. And here is the cherished possession:

It’s pretty cute. Daily Mail reports that it was designed by Irene Neuwirth.

What would YOU have gotten Taylor Swift for her birthday?

Pippa Middleton And Kim Kardashian Talk About Butts

pippa-middleton-kim-kardashian

Kim Kardashian broke the Internet with her major butt, and Pippa Middleton is a bit confused as to why that happened. She doesn’t understand America’s obsession with butts, and she wrote about it in a column for The Spectator‘s Christmas Special, via E!:

No year is complete without a bottom story, and the ‘Rear of 2014′ award undoubtedly goes to Kim Kardashian, after her posterior exploded all over the internet last month. I must say that mine—though it has enjoyed fleeting fame—is not comparable.

But the Kim butt story did make me pause. What is it with this American booty culture? It seems to me to be a form of obsession. Kim’s aim, apparently, was to break the Internet, but I’m not sure she’s going the right way about it.

(Polite) shots fired! Frankly, Pippa, I don’t get it either. And I doubt Kim’s “business tactics” as well. I don’t think there’s an American out there who doesn’t. We accept her butt the way we accept a crazy old uncle at a family event; we’re not totally thrilled about it, but we know he’s not going away, so we may as well take photos of him and hashtag the hell out of it. I think that metaphor may have gotten away from me there; that’s okay.

Kim has something to say about Pippa’s butt. She told E!:

I love her. She has an amazing booty. She’s beautiful.

That’s kind of Kim. I think she may have overshot it a bit though.

What do you think? Let’s talk butts. Who really has the best butt in Hollywood?

Angelina Jolie Has Chicken Pox, Makes YouTube Video About It

Angelina+Jolie

Dearest Angelina Jolie has come down with a case of the chicken pox, and she wants everybody to know it. So she posted a video on YouTube about it, which seems kind of odd, but since she’s missing a few events, I guess she didn’t want anyone to get alarmed about why she might be absent, so she made it clear in the video.

You can sort of make out some spots on her neck and chest area, and aside from that and looking a little tired, she still looks utterly gorgeous. I mean, of course she does, she’s Angelina Jolie. She can’t not look gorgeous, even if she does act like a “spoiled brat.” If she ever looks un-gorgeous, that’s a sign that the world is ending. Mark my damn words.

Of having the pox, “I just can’t believe it,” she laughs. “But such is life, there it is. And send everyone my love.”

You can see the whole short vid here:

Comments are disabled for the video, so whatever snarky comment you wanted to make, leave it here instead. Cheers!

BREAKING NEWS: Amanda Seyfried will eat whatever she wants, thank you

amanda seyfried

Amanda Seyfried may be ~Hollywood slim~ but that doesn’t mean she’s on some crazy crash diet. In fact, it’s the exact opposite. She loves to eat and doesn’t restrict herself if there’s something she sees that belongs in her belly.

From People:

“If I want to eat it, I’m going to eat it. Life is short,” the actress said at the 19th Annual ACRIA Holiday Dinner in New York City on Wednesday night. “[But] I have a steady workout regime.”

So how does Seyfried stay in amazing shape and still eat what she wants? “I’m into ballet. Hot yoga, not Bikram. You sweat, you move and it’s really good for your limbs, joints and muscles.”

Whoa, kewl story. A balanced diet and exercise? Say what? This is groundbreaking stuff!

I actually think that dress is really cute, though. A lot more palatable than this shit.
