What's that smell you ask? Smells like a Pete Doherty junky-jizz receptacle. Ehgawd, I think I just upchucked...again (been sick this week).
The Daily Mail is running these two pics of the painted bronze sculptures (& 1 unpainted) of Kate Moss on display at the Mary Boone gallery in Manhattan.
The artist, Marc Quinn, says they represent "an image, and the way it is twisted and sculpted by our collective desire".
Makes sense. My collective desire tells me she's gross.
Woah Nelly - that's some blond hair! Is it blond or is it white? One of my girlfriends used to say, "baby chicken yellow"...LOL.
Scarlett Johansson hosted Louis Vuitton's "Love" Party to benefit Oxfam America. Click the link to find out more.
The Simpsons is getting ready to celebrate its 400th episode and the release of "The Simpsons Movie" so the creator, Matt Groening, has been doing a bit of talking about behind-the-scenes stuff. Apparently Fox Networks think we're all idiots and Elizabeth Taylor is still a spicy chica!:
..."Fox News gives me a headache," says Groening, especially "the spinning logos and American flags and music designed to scare you s-less." He fondly remembers the "Simpsons" episode where "we had a news crawl like [Fox News] across the bottom of the screen. It said things like … 'Brad Pitt plus Albert Einstein equals Dick Cheney,' 'Study: 92 percent of Democrats are gay' … We were forbidden ever to do it again. Fox said it would confuse viewers."
Elizabeth Taylor is still feisty as hell and it's hilarious!
"With the 400th "Simpsons" episode and "The Simpsons Movie" approaching, Groening recalls how Elizabeth Taylor once agreed to play little Maggie saying her first word, "Daddy."
"We did 24 takes, but they were always too sexual. Finally Liz said, 'F— you,' and walked out."
Brangelina and the chirrens are all in Prague while mommy films her latest movie.
Daddy Brad Pitt is left to tend the chirrens when the nannies take their allotted 30 second breaks. You can't really say Shiloh is walking here but she's definitely on her way. First step: WALK...Second step: SAVE US!
Lindsay Lohan reportedly attended the high school lipsynching performance of Britney Spears at the House of Blues on the Sunset Strip.
These pics are from the press conference for her new movie "Georgia Rule." What to learn from Lindsay's cream colored outfit and orange skin combo (although I'm for orange fake tan vs. real deadly tan)??? Don't put the orange stuff on if you will be sweating and wearing light colors. NOT GOOD! The dress is hot though. Love it.
** Click all pics for a closer look! **
Naomi Watts was completely glowing at the reopening of Escada's flagship store on Wilshire Boulevard in Beverly Hills. The luxury store (all 6,500 sqft of it) is housed in the Beverly Wilshire Hotel (Pretty Woman anyone?) and is one of the first to display Escada's new shop concept.
Singer/Musician Jewel looked awesome. I love her dress!
...and Hilary Swank attended looking all glittery...
Actress Maria Bello was there as well. I like her. She's a relatively simple but spunky gal.
Paris Hilton is due in court today on her February 27th arrest for speeding and driving without a valid license (it had been suspended after her Sept.7 '06 DUI arrest). Prosecutors filed documents in Los Angeles Superior Court on April 30.
Prosecutors have suggested a 45 day jail term (YES!), that Hilton be required to stay away from alcohol for 90 days and that she be required to wear a device that will chart whether she complies.
Ooooo, I hope the judge has a backbone in this case and goes with the Prosecutors recommendations.

Last post before I start puking again and climb into bed...I had to get these Tom Brady-Gisele Bundchen pics out because I know how all of us get pumped about this situation.
The couple was snapped Wednesday, May 2, in NYC. Talk amongst yourselves. :)
I have really been dragging these last few days and have had a tough time getting out of bed.
This morning I got up and headed outside to blog, got the Francis post in, then had to run to the bathroom to Upchuck. Sooo, I'm going to lay low for a bit and try to post later.
Thanks for always checking in. Love you kids.
"Girls Gone Wild" pimp and Florida jailbird Joe Francis was interviewed by Tyra Banks before he went to jail last month ('bout damn time) and she asked why there are never any black girls flashing their "girls" in his videos(um, why's she watching them to find out?) and Francis responded: "Here's the problem with black girls - they want to get paid. ... [Other girls,] I just ask and they do it."
Cheap and sleezy...yeah, they often go together. The interview will air on the Tyra Banks Show Monday.

I implore you to take a look at these disgusting and incredibly disturbing pictures. What are you looking at? You're looking at a 17-yr-old Kurdish girl named Du'a Khalil Aswad who was stoned for a 1/2 hour until she died. Why? To salvage her family's honor which had supposedly been shamed because Du'a was in love with a teenage boy who is Sunni Muslim and she stayed out all night one night.
My eyes are full of tears thinking of how this girl was hiding for her life - how 8 or 9 men reportedly stormed the home of a Yezidi tribal leader in Bashika - dragged her outside in front of a large crowd - and pummeled her with large stones she finally died. A large crowd watched - a local security force watched - AND NO ONE DID ANYTHING. SHAME ON ALL OF YOU. SHAME ON EVERY FUCKING LAST ONE OF YOU.
Please don't try to tell me that honor killings are rare these days. I call bullshit on that. What's rare, and I'd like to know if it has ever happened, is that bastards responsible for these killings, acid attacks on women & beatings, being brought to justice.
I have never approved of this war but for reasons with my own government - but these last few years have really shown me just how deeply rooted middle eastern problems are - how these civil wars amongst religious groups will never end because nobody wants to put down their fucking guns and swords to live in peace. How can a place ever be peaceful when they think it's OK to beat, throw acid at, behead or kill in any way, women whom the men deem dishonorable.
Of course not everybody in the middle east condones or participates in this behavior but no one intervened either. Let those who disapprove of such behavior and civil war stand up and take control of their country.
I beg to know: WHY ARE WE FIGHTING FOR THESE PEOPLE?! We may want peace and harmony for Iraq and the rest of the middle east - but wanting it more than they do gets us nowhere but home with thousands of dead soldiers and dozens of thousands of amputees, soldiers with brain trauma, burn victims & more.
BRING EVERY SINGLE SOLDIER HOME NOW. Their barbaric acts and thousand(s) year old civil war is NOT OUR FIGHT.
Shame on everyone who watched 17-yr-old Du'a Khalil Aswad die in the streets while being stoned. Shame on a group of people who find honor in such killings. Shame on a society refusing to investigate and prosecute these barbarians. Shame on our President and this administration for sending our mothers, sisters, brothers, fathers, uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, friends, future doctors-teachers-laborers - you name them - over to fight such a ridiculous war. SHAME ON ALL OF YOU.
I pray that Du'a Khalil Aswad is at peace. I am so sorry she had to live and die the way she did. You are not forgotten.
I'm not really ragging Lily Allen for her weight - I don't like doing that - what I am saying is that the smoking is unhealthy (duh) and her legs would really shape up with some exercise. They're looking a whole lot like tree trunks. Maybe I'm still peeved at her for trash talking Americans then quitting her damn tour. Whatever.
And dayum if her brother doesn't look like an uglier version of Matt Damon. Dude could totally get "stand-in" work on a Damon film set.
Brad Pitt was snapped carrying little Pax Thien from a private jet after the Jolie-Pitt family landed in Prague where Angelina Jolie is set to film "Wanted" in which she plays an assassin who agrees to take on an apprentice.
Can't wait to see more of the fam. source
Still trying to save his reputation after saying racist things about "Grey's Anatomy" castmate T.R. Knight, Isaiah Washinton is reportedly set to do public service announcement for GLAAD (the Gay & Lesbian Alliance Against Defamation).
Washington had yelled, “I’m not your little f-ggot like T.R. Knight!” to co-star Patrick Dempsey during an on-set fight and later denied issuing the slur in the Golden Globes press room, "No, I did not call T.R. a f-ggot. Never happened, never happened."
How much of an idiot do you have to be to use the same slur you got slammed for using when trying to claim you didn't use it? Oh, and don't even get me started on entering rehab for it. Grrrrr, he irritates me deeply.
Regarding the GLAAD PSAs, Washington's rep, Howard Bragman, said, "We're gonna have — I want to say at least two versions of it at this point."..."We may broaden our message a little."
Let's hope he has turned the hate corner onto tolerance lane! Ehgads, was that too cheesy?
Jolie & Olivier in 2004 or so.
Angelina Jolie spent some time in New York for the official launch of Global Action for Children and to show her documentary A Place in Time at the Tribeca Film Festival - but she also took time out to catch-up with an old reported fling, Olivier Martinez.
Us Weekly is making a big hullabaloo about an eyewitness account of Jolie at an afterparty at Gin Lane:
“She turned to him on the banquette and was shaking it in front of him. She was giving him a lap dance, ” another reveler tells Us. “She was looking over her shoulder, tossing a glance his way.”
As another partygoer describes it, “It was very, very flirty.”
“When she is with someone she knows, she might appear to be flirtatious, but it’s just affection.”
I'm sure this was all harmless fun but we all know Brad won't be able to contain her for long. She has always been spicy and always will be spicy! Hopefully she had some cheese and crackers with her red wine 'cause she could stand to gain 5-10lbs. I'm just sayin'...
"Studio 60" star Matthew Perry was seen cuddling actress Piper Perabo at the Tribeca Film Festival after party for his movie "Numb". Said a source: "They were on a couch holding hands and he was rubbing her back."..."She snuck into the movie after everyone was seated, then arrived with him at the party but wouldn't take pictures."
Matthew has been unlucky in love so I hope he's happy right now! "STUDIO 60" RULES!
Oooooo, word on the street is that actress Neve Campbell (of "Party of Five" and "Scream" fame) and her longtime beau, British actor John Light, are set to marry this Saturday at a top secret Malibu location.
According to the NY POST, close family and friends were instructed to "stay mum" on the subject. The couple lives in London but Neve is in L.A. shotting episodes of "Medium" (love that show!) so they decided to do the deed in Malibu.
Light, an actor with the Royal Shakespeare Company, reportedly proposed last February ('06) on bended knee while reciting Shakespeare...'cause she doesn't here you reciting that stuff all around your flat? Cheesy McCheese dude!
The 2007 Tribeca Film Festival in Nueva York just won't end! Drew Barrymore and Eric Bana looked smashing at the premier of their new film "Lucky You" which is set to launch nationwide this Friday (May 4). If you're hawking a movie about luck you best wear green to it's premier!
Click the Tribeca link below to see all kinds of pics from the festival and click Drew's link below to see her roughing it at the Coachella Music Festival in Indo, California.
