Hey, do you remember when Paris Hilton had her own TV show and everybody talked about the things she was doing or funny things she said? "That's hot" and all that business? What a crazy time in our history, right? But it's probably safe to say that that time has passed, along with Paris' general popularity. Which isn't a bad thing, for sure -- a lot of people still care about Paris, and she's still doing her thing and making boatloads of money, and basically opening up all different worlds for herself by virtue of music, merchandise, and entrepreneurialism, and it's all good. Paris has maintained a foothold where other women of the early noughts haven't.
She looks pretty great, and she probably brought in a good amount for this Carl's Jr. commercial, too, despite the fact that her appearance was pretty abbreviated. Truth be told, though, we'd rather see Paris writhing all over that car any old day over the other girl. Something about Paris just screams "longevity," and that's not a joke.
Keep doing you, girl!

So Michelle Rodriguez, despite being kind of scary a lot of the time, is a gorgeous, gorgeous lady. Sure, she's made some bad choices (for the record, those bad choices do not include possibly hooking up with Zac Efron), but she's got a pretty face. And now, according to this lovely little selfie she posted to Instagram, she's a lovely face with bangs!
Oh, sorry, a lovely face with bangs that also has a brand new outlook on life:
Finally got my hair bid. New Look New Life New Vibe washed yesterday right out of my hair looking forward baby
Positive changes are always good, guys, and you know what? Bangs are usually good too. So you get it, Michelle. You get it hard. (In this situation, "it" includes Zac Efron.)
Verdict: love it! Good hair, good attitude, good choice in dudes. Goodness all around, y'all.

It's time to feel sad and sorry and maybe just a little bit embarrassed for Lily Allen, guys, because she went and said a thing. Because, in case you didn't know, her latest album, Sheezus, didn't do incredibly well. It didn't do horribly by any means -- in its opening week, it was number one in the UK and number 12 in the U.S. -- but apparently it didn't do as well as Lily had hoped. And that's why she came out and blamed everybody else for it:
''The music industry is run mainly by elder males. It sits better with them to be able to assert their power and control over something that they see as weak and i think they probably see women as weak ... The truth is nobody knows what the f--- they're doing. They can pretend they've got a formula that works and [that] they 'know' they're exactly in control of the game but they're just not. No one knows.''
And while Lily may have a tiny little bit of a point, this just isn't correct. If Lily's album didn't do so well because of some sort of sexism, then, uh, explain Beyonce. Explain Katy Perry and Lady Gaga and Rihanna and do we really need to go on with this? It's not like there aren't any successful female pop artists, you know? Especially conventionally attractive female pop artists, which is a category that Lily falls into. So maybe, just maybe, the sales don't have anything to do with her gender. Maybe the album just wasn't that awesome.

Warning: The tail-end of this video features the f-word. Just so you know.
Just when you thought Robin Thicke couldn't get any creepier ... oh, guys, just kidding, we all knew that he could get creepier. He has an infinite supply of creep deep down inside -- he possesses levels of creep that this world has never even seen. We sincerely just cannot imagine how creepy Robin Thicke can get, but this right here, this is a special kind of creepy, and it's because the creepiness comes through even when he's acting in his very first movie, "Making The Rules." Impressive, right?
"But wait," you might be thinking, "He's not extraordinarily weird in this trailer!" And you're right, he's not. You can see some of that terrible acting, sure, but that special Thicke anti-charm isn't really there. And that's why you have to see this extra special compilation of some of Robin's "best" scenes:
It's OK if you can't think of words to say, or if you can't stop laughing hysterically, or if you feel kind of sick or faint. It's OK if you never feel comfortable watching any movie again for as long as you live. Those are all completely natural reactions to watching such a mess. Maybe just lie down for a bit, it'll pass. I mean, the extreme feelings will pass, but the memory never will. Robin Thicke's gross make out face will haunt you for the rest of your days.

In a recent interview, Courtney Love decided it's high time to quit sitting on what's probably going to be a multi-million-dollar-making flick and allow -- "allow" -- the Kurt Cobain biopic to be made. Teenagers of the 90s, beware: your hearts are about to get broken all over again.
Here's what she said, and surprise! It's going to include the people who were actually in Nirvana with her deceased husband, and Courtney herself may not necessarily have full control over what -- or who -- happens in front of the cameras:
"The biopic should start within the next year or so [and] I won't name names, because I don't want to jinx it for anyone, but these are 25 year olds who are blond, gorgeous and the new Brad Pitts. There's a ton of those. Some are really good actors, not just pretty faces. I don't want to be the person who makes that decision. ... I do have a say in [the creative direction of the film]. So do Frances and Krist [Noveselic] and Dave [Grohl] for that matter, if it touches on Nirvana -- and it will. I am leading the charge because it's time to do this. ... Everyone wants to throw money at this."
Of course they do, Courtney. Of course. Because everything in life revolves around you and your troubled past and "enlightened" future path, and isn't it only beautiful karma that you just might get to have the primary rights to everything Kurt Cobain because of Kurt Cobain's death, too? Isn't a prolific career and a beautiful daughter and notoriety enough?
All that aside, this could be a pretty interesting project ... though I don't know about you -- growing up in the heyday of Brad Pitt and watching his career evolve, I don't know many 25-year-old actors who are the "next" Brad Pitt, do you? Come on.

Tori Spelling's marriage reality show might be over, but that doesn't mean she can't keep giving interviews about the same thing all the time, because what else is there, really?
In the most recent interview, she talked about Dean McDermott and his cheating, and where they stand with their relationship in near-real time.
As for the rest of the things -- like how the children will inevitably be impacted by the cheating, their damaged relationship, and by virtue, the terrible reality show that exploited the relationship's privacy and children -- Tori says, "I hope to be able to have a very candid conversation with them one day because I hope we will have made it through this and made it out on the other side, and we survived something that was a tough thing."
Did we not just hear about all this "tell the children you cheated" from LeAnn Rimes' mouth just yesterday? Yes, we did -- but there's a difference: Tori and Dean will not only hopefully talk this through with their children as a couple -- whether they're still together at the time or not -- but they'll hopefully only have to explain that their father stepped out on their biological mother and leave it at that. Hopefully Dean won't have this conversation jointly with "Emily Goodhand" -- or someone in a similar role -- as the kids' stepmother or whoever, possibly leaving Tori right out of it.
Get a foothold while you can, Tori ... the truth-telling moments are nearing, and you wanna be around for this.
Man. Sticking up for Tori and Dean over LeAnn and Eddie ... it's like rolling around in explosive fertilizer, jumping into the figurative frying pan and searing yourself up good, then finally throwing yourself into the fire.

Kate Gosselin is looked upon as one of the most heinous reality television/celebrity mothers in TV history and is often compared to "Mommie Dearest" ... and for good reason: she's a pretty terrible -- and terribly selfish -- person, and now there are some even more serious allegations out there than the ones we've always speculated about behind closed doors.
Kate's former nanny recently gave an exclusive interview where she made claims about Kate's preferred housekeeping habits, her real relationship with ex-husband, Jon Gosselin, and why she finally ended up bailing on the job altogether.
This is her side of the story:
"We always had to refer to the [house rules] manual because it listed her pet peeves. You couldn't put anything on the ground. You had to put shoes in a certain spot. You couldn't close doors loudly. You could only vacuum during certain times of the day if she was home. ... At nine o'clock, everything was done. Even if I was halfway through dishes, at 9 p.m. you had to stop. She told me her day ended at 9 p.m, no matter what was going on."
Kate even allegedly went as far as to have the nanny listen in on phone calls between the children and her ex-husband:
"When Jon called the kids on the phone, Kate said to us nannies, ‘You are Kate, so always listen in on the phone calls. ... We always had to keep an ear and eye on what was going on. Kate would say she had no problem with the kids having a relationship with Jon, but it always felt like a façade to me."
The former nanny states she tolerated as much as humanly possible, and only ended up leaving the Gosselin house after allegedly witnessing Kate physically striking one of her younger sons with a plastic spoon.
Horrible, right? And it sure sounds like everything's just falling right in line with what some people have been saying for years, doesn't it? It's sad and frightening -- all of it -- and it's no wonder some of these poor children act out in the manner they do.
To the people who say that the elder Gosselin children are out of control and misbehaved, now maybe it's possible you have your reason as to why.

--Justin Bieber's vague and honest -- but quite Robinesque -- answer when it came to answering the question of whether his ex-girlfriend, Selena Gomez, is currently still his friend, to one of the X17 cameramen.
Bieber was caught on the streets of Los Angeles, seemingly unprepared to be asked about Selena, and though his answer about her was sweet and abbreviated, the message he had for his fans was a lot longer and definitely more rehearsed:
"Thank you so much for supporting me through everything. Don't believe in the nonsense. Don't always believe what you hear."
There you have it, folks -- do we maybe have the very next Robin Thicke on our hands? Is Justin going to write a whole entire album about the on-again, off-again relationship he shares with Selena Gomez? Is he going to start publicly professing his love for Selena in the strangest of places, like red carpet events and, you know, between sets on stage?
We sure hope not, because now that the Thicke nonsense is over -- and he's given up, don't you know -- we don't need another uncomfortable repeat of having to watch someone -- though it's someone who's definitely still better than Robin Thicke, if we had to choose -- beg in order to "get her back."
