Celebrity Gossip Heard All Over The Web

The Queen of Thievery Verbally Slaps The Princess of Thievery

The last time I checked, Madonna was not exactly the queen of originality, so when Lady Gaga infamously heavily quasi-sampled her “Express Yourself”, she should have been pleased that someone was sampling her and keeping her ass current and on the PDA devices of nearly every tween in America. But no, Madonna was not having it! Instead of praising Lady Gaga’s assterpiece of a song, she took the capitalistic approach, re-releasing the song for download.

The poptrick trashdown continued in Tel Aviv over the weekend, when Madonna, who is rehearsing for concerts, began singing the lyrics to her Express Yourself over Lady Gaga’s Born This Way. How much do you want to bet she includes this verbal slap on the concert tour?

If this is not the pot calling the kettle black then I don’t know what is. If Madonna had to pay off everyone she has ripped off of, she would not have enough money to pay for her boytoys. Pat Benatar, Grace Jones, Debbie Harry, Roisin Murphy, et cetera…they are still waiting for checks!

Walk Off The Earth’s Cover of “Somebody That I Used To Know” Surpasses 100 Million Views!

Walk Off The Earth’s massively popular YouTube cover of Gotye featuring Kimbra’s smash hit “Somebody That I Used To Know” has passed the 100 million view mark, making it the most popular cover song ever posted on YouTube. Pretty impressive!

The creative video features all five band members playing one guitar and has helped to rapidly launch the Canadian group into online stars. The band performed the song on The Ellen DeGeneres Show earlier this year, and the clip of that performance has been viewed nearly 2.5 million times.

Their “Somebody That I Used To Know” cover single has been certified Platinum in Canada, and sold over 165k copies in the US.

The band have released dozens of other covers, and fans have responded to Walk Off The Earth’s clever arrangements and beautiful harmonies. Their recent covers of the Weeds theme song “Little Boses” )originally performed by Malvina Reynolds) and The Beatles’ “From Me To You” have each gotten over 3 million views. And their latest is a cover of Nirvana’s “Polly” that is already at over 1 million views on YouTube, and is available starting today on iTunes.

Brooklyn Decker Eats Like She’s 12, Booty Dances To Taylor Swift Songs

Brooklyn Decker covers the May 2012 issue of Women’s Health magazine looking gorgeous per usual. Brooklyn once again proves the supermodel stereotype true. Just check out the highlights from the interview and you’ll know what I mean.

ON HER HUSBAND ANDY RODDICK:

“Being married to Andy has given me a new appreciation for my body. He’s taught me that it’s not how thin you are that matters. It’s how your body performs, how it endures wear and tear.”

ON WORKING OUT WITH HER HUBBY:

“One day when we were in London, Andy took me to a track behind a high school. We did a kind of hopscotch down the track, more drills over hurdles, and then shuttle runs.”

ON TRYING TO LEARN TENNIS FROM HER HUBBY:

“He tried to give me a lesson once, and I ended up hitting all the tennis balls over the fence and smashing my racket because I was so frustrated. I told him, ‘You don’t teach me how to play tennis, and I won’t teach you how to model in a bathing suit.’ And so far, it’s worked.”

ON THE IMPORTANCE OF EXERCISING WHEN SHE IS TIRED:

“If I stop wanting to work out, then I’m going to be some serious trouble.”

ON HER FOOD PHILOSOPHY:

“I try not to think about foods that are too fattening or too sugary. I always think about why it’s important to eat the best foods. By not obsessing over the bad, I tend to stick with the good.”

ON HER EATING HABITS:

“[I eat] like a 12-year-old.”

ON CHALLENGING HERSELF:

“My director on Battleship, Peter Berg, said that as much as I work out, he wanted me to be strong. He took me to a boxing gym in Santa Monica. After six or seven minutes of sparring, I was completely winded. But I was also exhilarated because it was a new workout that I had never before experienced. And it’s one of the best deals you’ll find. This place charges around $15 for an hour. You learn how to punch, and I promise, you and your muscles will never forget it. I love working my butt off to prove I can do something new. If I don’t keep looking for challenges, life gets sort of dull.”

ON DANCING AS EXERCISE:

“Yesterday I returned from a trip to Australia and Munich, so I resorted to my secret, sure-fire method to get my body moving again. I blasted three Taylor Swift songs as loud as I could and started running in place and doing some stupid booty dancing. Sometimes I’ll watch a music video of a great performer like Beyoncé and try to follow her choreography. Yeah, maybe I look ridiculous, but dancing gets your energy up a lot better than running on a treadmill or pedaling a stationary bike.”

ON KAYAKING:

“Whenever I’m near a body of water, I love to rent a kayak. It’s easy to use, and you not only get a cardio workout but also do a vigorous upper body workout, pushing and pulling your paddle through the water. And let’s face it: The view is always a lot better than the one you can get in a gym.”

ON WORKING OUT WITH FRIENDS:

“When I was a bridesmaid for my best friend’s wedding in North Carolina, the two of us and the other bridesmaids hired a Pilates instructor to do a private class for us the morning of the wedding. We were able to play our favorite music and laugh and talk while working out. It was the perfect way to start a day, and ever since I’ve tried to come up with workouts that I can do with my girlfriends.”

ON HER FAVORITE YOGA MOVE:

“One of my favorite moves is to lie on the ground on my back, a yoga block propped under my lower back, and then pull my legs up while spreading out my knees, making my legs look just like a butterfly. The move opens up my hips and stretches my back at the same time.”

ON MAKING NEW FRIENDS THROUGH EXERCISE, LIKE HER BATTLESHIP COSTAR TAYLOR KITSCH:

“You create a bonding experience that you never would have had. My hike with Taylor Kitsch [her love interest in Battleship] was very strenuous, and we needed ropes to get to the top of the summit. But when we were finished, we knew each other a lot better than if we had just had the usual dinner and drinks night. Plus, no matter how much time you spend in the weight room, you simply can’t get a better workout for your legs than when you go for a long hike.”

ON FITTING IN ON HER CORE WORKOUTS THROUGHOUT THE DAY:

“Seriously, I will drop to the floor and do a plank anywhere, anytime—in my kitchen, next to my bed, in a hotel room. Straight planks on my elbows or hands and then the all-important side planks and side plank crunches.”

ON GIRL CRUSHES:

“When I see a woman who’s overcome obstacles, who’s done something with her life, I want to say to her, ‘Wow, you’re cool. Your career is awesome, and I’d love to hang out with you.’ It’s a respect thing.”

ON KRISTEN WIIG:

“Her sense of humor is something we can all relate to. She’s like the inner soul of every girl alive. She doesn’t care about preserving her beauty on camera—and she is very beautiful. She’s very real.”

ON LANA DEL REY:

“She has such an individual singing style—a kind of smoky, old-school jazzy voice combined with a hip-hop vibe. It’s music I’ve never really heard before.”

ON ERIN ANDREWS:

“You have to love a beautiful woman who knocks down all the stereotypes and becomes one of the country’s best sportscasters. She had to fight for years to be taken seriously, and she did it without once losing her sense of humor or her great enthusiasm.”

ON MARISA MILLER:

“When I was a rookie in the Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue, Marisa had already been in it for years. But unlike a lot of models who get very territorial, Marisa rooted for the new girls. If there was a job she couldn’t do, she’d pass it on to me. That’s real grace.”

ON CHARLIZE THERON:

“Well, duh. It’s not just her breathtaking beauty that stuns me, it’s her ability to act completely against type, to defy everyone’s expectations, and to go for roles that she just finds interesting, not because an agent or manager tells her the parts will be good for her career.”

Penelope Cruz Says Sitting Topless On Top Of Meryl Streep Was “Interesting”

Penelope Cruz covers Harpers Bazaar’s May 2012 and she was photographed by the creeper McCreeperton Terry Richardson. Yes, magazines are still loving Ter Bear.

While the interview doesn’t reveal much, we can see that Pene is loving life.

Check out the highlights below via Harpers Bazaar:

ON HER RED CARPET STYLE:

“All I look for is to be able to breathe!”

ON HERSELF:

“One thing that I am proud of: I am really capable of laughing at myself,” she says. She’s bossy too. “I think you want a Coke, right,” she says, which means she wants a Coke. “And you definitely want more turkey bacon.”

ON WOODY ALLEN:

“I love being around Woody. Watching him direct, and sometimes,” she whispers, “he falls asleep while they are lighting the next shot. I take pictures of him because he picks the strangest positions. I always think he is going to fall off his chair.” But it’s when he’s awake that Penélope says she loves Allen the most: “That whole shoot I laughed so hard.”

ON WHY SHE’LL WORK LESS WHEN SHE BECOMES A MAMA:

“Maybe I’ll make one movie a year, maybe two, but it’s not going to be more than that because I have other priorities now.”

ON WHY SHE MIGHT MOVE OUT OF LA:

“When I come here now, I have so many memories,” Penélope says. “Some of them good, some of them not so good. I have lived beautiful moments here, but I don’t want to live here. It is not the place where I want to raise my kids.” Ask about Leonardo and she gives a diplomatic smile and declines to elaborate. “I talk about him all day long, even to strangers in the street; it is my favorite subject! But, you know; this is my job.”

ON BEING THE FACE OF LANCOMES TRESOR:

“It was actually my first perfume,” she says. Penélope’s mother, who ran a beauty salon in Madrid, gave her the scent in her teens, and she always returns to it. “It’s a real history,” she says, “real memories that are related to this scent. It’s funny, after over 20 years….” Of working with the brand, she adds, “You arrive in this Lancôme world, and everything is full of white flowers, and everything smells good. You feel like you are walking on clouds, and then,” she says laughing, “you go home.”

ON HOW HER FAMILY AND FRIENDS WOULD DESCRIBE HER:

“Stubborn. Even my mother would say that as the first word!” She would describe herself as “persistent. It is my best friend and my worst enemy. And I don’t just mean fighting for something related to work; it could be anything. I have a strong personality, and I say what I think. I think I’ve been better about being a little more flexible.” Tell her she’s a no-bulls–t girl and she grins broadly. “That is the best compliment you can give me!”

ON MERYL STREEP:

“When I first started watching movies and I saw Meryl’s work, that’s when I became obsessed with acting. Now I kiss her whenever I see her! She must think I’m crazy.” She recalls a magazine shoot they did together a few years ago for the AIDS charity (RED). “As soon as she got to the set, I had to sit topless on top of her. It was the most interesting love scene I’ve ever done.”

Gotta love Pene. I’m so happy she escaped the wrath of Scientol-Tom, but I would be interested to see how much he paid her off to NOT talk about his wiggity wackness. At any rate, Pene’s hair looks fab curly.

Kristen Bell Loves Butts

I just adore Kristen Bell. She is on the cover of Women’s Health magazine looking fierce per usual. But what is it that I love about her so much? She has a subtle quirkiness about her (think Anna Faris but not so damn annoying) and maybe it is just the facial expressions she makes that are so damn adorable. Or perhaps she just reminds me of myself. Yep. That’s it. Love you Kristen like I love myself!

At any rate, the star of the House of Lies and the upcoming Farrelly brothers comedy Movie 43, graces the April cover of Women’s Health and opens up about going vegan, her co-star’s butt, and what it’s like to work with her fiancé Dax Shepard on their upcoming movie, Outrun. Peep the highlights below.

ON BUTTS:

“My favorite things on the planet. I want two round cupcakes, always. I kicked my buns and abs sets into high gear when I knew I’d have to be in my bar and underwear on House of Lies. But I don’t show my crack! All the Mr. Skins of the world are like, “ooh, Kristen gets naked!’ I’m like, ‘Dream on!’”

ON HER HOUSE OF LIES CO-STAR DON CHEADLE’S BUTT:

“If you had those beautiful chocolate bun-cakes, you’d show’em too, let’s be honest.”

ON WORKING WITH FIANCE, DAX SHEPARD ON THEIR UPCOMING MOVIE OUTRUN:

“I would watch him walk back to the monitor and yell things such as ‘Action!’ or ‘Cut!’ and I’d just go, ‘And you expect me to work when you’re doing cute things around me all day? How am I supposed to focus?

ON FIANCE DAX SHEPARD’S COOKING:

“He makes this delicious spaghetti dish… about twice a year. I wish he cooked more.[Actually] I don’t wish he cooked more. He’s a very good cook, but I’m quite territorial in the kitchen. It’s like, if I went outside and fixed the car, he’d be like, ‘Whaaat?’”

ON VEGAN FOOD:

“[It’s] fart powder. [It] makes you gassy.”

ON HER AND FIANCE DAX SHEPARD’S BEST FRIENDS:

“We decided to create the first four-way marriage, where our couple has married their couple.”

ON HER RELATIONSHIP WITH FIANCE DAX:

“We nauseate ourselves with how mushy we are.”

The April 2012 issue hits newsstands on Tuesday, March 13th.

Adele Covers Vogue: Talks Drinking, Grammys and Sex

Adele is the “it” girl for Vogue’s March 2012 issue and rightfully so! Girlfriend cleaned house at the Grammys ceremony last night winning SIX gold trophies.

Check out the amazing photos (that are unfortunately photoshopped wayyy too much) and highlights from the Vogue interview below.

ON HER “LOUD” PERSONALITY:

“I am quite loud and bolshie. I’m a big personality. I walk into a room, big and tall and loud.” Indeed. There is no doubt when Adele is in the building. The rule of thumb for protecting one’s vocal cords, she tells me, is: If people are more than an arm’s length away, you shouldn’t talk to them. “But I am like, Wah! Wah! Wah! It’s really bad.”

ON GIVING UP DRINKING LAST MAY:

“Don’t like drinking anymore. I think I got it out of my system. D’yaknowhaImean?”

ON HER VOCAL TROUBLES:

“I’ve been singing properly every day since I was about fifteen or sixteen and I have never had any problems with my voice, ever. I’ve had a sore throat here and there, had a cold and sung through it, but that day it just went while I was onstage in Paris during a radio show. It was literally like someone had pulled a curtain over it.” She flew to London the next morning to see her doctor and was diagnosed with acute laryngitis. After a couple weeks’ rest, she continued her European tour, came to America, and then her voice went again in May. “That was a hemorrhage… a burst blood vessel on my vocal cord. That healed, I did a tour, and then it happened again at my best friend’s wedding on October 1.”

ON GETTING SUPPORT THROUGH HER SURGERY FROM OTHER ARTISTS:

“John Mayer had it done at the same time as I did and he really helped me be chilled out about it. Roger Daltrey’s had loads of stuff done; Steven Tyler reached out; Elton John. Lots of artists have had problems with their voices, but you don’t know about it. And they are still singing incredibly well in their 50s and 60s.”

ON HER CELEBRITY STATUS:

“I hate the red carpet. I don’t feel insecure, I just feel like, Oh, I don’t want to do this. I literally get a stomach cramp. At the VMA’s last year I felt really out of my comfort zone because there were so many superstars there. But that’s been the case from day one. I never feel like, Oh, yeah, I should be here. And I was missing my best friend’s hen night. So I was a bit bitter that I wasn’t there, to be perfectly honest.”

ON HER BEST AND WORST QUALITIES AS A GIRLFRIEND:

“Oh, my God! love a bit of drama. That’s a bad thing. I can flip really quickly. I am not bipolar, but I go from ‘Oh, my God, I love you’ to ‘Get the fuck out of my house!’ really quickly. And I never sit there and talk about it. I give them the silent treatment. They’re like, ‘Tell me what I’ve done so I can say sorry!’ What else? It used to be that I loved a drink a bit too much. But I don’t drink no more. The good things: I am attentive. I will do anything for my man. I am a good cook. I’m funny. Always want to have sex.” She cracks up. “Well, most girls don’t!”

ON HER SIX GRAMMY NOMINATION:

“I burst into tears when I found out. And I would love, absolutely love, to win. This record is coming to an end, and that would be the final brick on it.”

Nicki Minaj doesn’t know what a Santorum is

For the Spring Fashion issue, Paper magazine selected Nicki Minaj as their cover girl and they also sat down to talk reality TV, her new album and Minaj’s style idols with the eccentric pop star.

Check out some of the highlights from our friends at Paper magazine below:

ON HOW SHE HAS BEEN HANDLING THE WHIRLWIND OF FAME THAT FOUND HER THIS YEAR:

I have been working sooo much. Success came and now that somany eyes are on me, I feel I have to deliver. And it’s a business. No joke. I guess I am stressing more than I should be, and I think I am becoming more guarded.

ON SITTING NEXT TO ANNA WINTOUR DURING FASHION WEEK:

I was screaming out loud inside my head. Me sitting next to the Queen of Vogue! It was such a strange experience. I felt like I was dreaming. And I thought she would be snobby
or something. But she was so incredibly sweet to me.

ON HER STYLE ICONS:

Grace Jones definitely. So amazing. And Cyndi Lauper, I loved her right from when I was a little girl. And Janet Jackson of course. And Boy George. I always loved the way he dressed, and his music too.

ON HER NEW ALBUM:

The album is like a collage of all my emotions. I am not sticking to any particular style. I am doing what I feel without restrictions. So it’s very free and very me.

Kim Kardashian gushes over Kris Humphries in Marie Claire interview

Kim Kardashian’s Marie Claire interview comes at a very unfortunate time, but what do you do. Magazine interviews are done usually a month or so in advance of the release date and so, Kim had no choice but to accept the release of this interview and photo shoot despite gushing over her husband Kris Humphries and telling the world that her reality show is all real.

Yeah so anyways, check out the highlights from the interview below. Don’t be afraid to giggle because I am pretty sure Kim was snickering silently to herself knowing that this very interview was going to come out after the divorce announcement and it would be a perfect timed release for others to believe that she actually gave the interview after an extremely happy wedding. Plus she probably knew in the back of her mind that the $500 toaster I sent her wouldn’t have to be returned, among her other lavish wedding gifts.
