Here's Khloe Kardashian, still beating the hell out of that busted braided look, and if she hasn't listened to us once, then she's probably not going to listen to us ever when it comes to critiquing her hair-ppearance. Why bother. 

Verdict: Nah. We're just not digging this look on Khloe. There are far, far other more interesting components we'd rather focus on in this pic, like those lips, because jeez. 

Love It or Leave It -- Khloe's No-Ness:

  • Love it!
  • Leave it.

Pam Anderson has apparently been taking hair tips from Donald Trump lately, because this thing is one big pile of hot mess. 

This is how Pamela was actually photographed leaving a restaurant last night, and yes, it would appear that she's sober, and no, it doesn't look like she decided to get a makeover in the bathroom in the dark.

Girl, what are you even thinking? Were you trying for Jay Gatsby? Because it ended up being more like J. Wellington Wimpy instead.

Failure to launch, girl.

Oh Taylor Swift ... we know that you're so desperately trying to reinvent yourself, and we love it and you. We really do. But this new song off "1989" -- "Welcome to New York" -- it's just ... it's not great as it should be. It's heavily auto-tuned, and the synthesizers are just off the charts, girl -- and not in a good way. 

We're not saying to go back to the old country or anything, or that it's not OK to branch out and experiment with new sounds and stylings and what not, but this sappy, poppy romanticizing of a new beginning only cheapens what New York really symbolized for you: a real and true breakthrough in finding oneself and the breathtaking magic that accompanies that. 

"Welcome to New York" could have been so, so much better ... if maybe a bit more time and thought had been spent on it, huh?

"I'm taking some time off because I've been working for two years. I'm an actor and that's my art form, and because I started that so young, I've always felt intimidated and insufficient when I think about other forms of art I want to create. ... I'm going to buy a live-work space in downtown L.A. and I'm going to make some (stuff) with my hands. Literally, I made that decision a few weeks ago. I'm making a short film. I'm making a bunch of (stuff). I don't know how I'll put it out. But I'm not going to hold it so preciously close to me. I write all the time."

--Kristen Stewart during a recent interview about doing back-to-back movies for the last couple of years, and now finally settling down, away from the publicity and press and doing something she really enjoys: hands-on art. 

See, we like Kristen around here, so we're not going to assume that her going into "hiding" has anything at all to do with the fact that her most famous ex-boyfriend, Robert Pattinson, has gone pretty public -- which probably means "pretty serious" -- with his new girlfriend, the awesome FKA Twigs, because we like Twigs just the same.

Two things are certain: some pretty interesting women seem to gravitate toward Robert Pattinson, and whatever Kristen Stewart is going to be working on behind closed doors, we totally want to know about it when it comes time.

Sam Lutfi would have you believe that he's the live, human equivalent of something like "Celebrity Home Makeover" minus the home, sub in "Mental Illness," but the fact is, he's been a hanger-on of women in the process of deteriorating and comes across more like a vulture than anything else. 

In a recent open letter to XO Jane, Lutfi claims that he's basically the savior of all broken celebrity women, and his recent alleged ploy to land Amanda Bynes in rehab -- an association that Amanda's parents are currently vehemently denying -- has urged his long-time friend (and pinnacle of human behavior mastery herself) Courtney Love, to push Sam to come clean with his hot mess-helping ways. 

Lutfi claims that he's for the underdog, and loves nothing more than a good comeback story. Lutfi claims that he's objectified in the media as the bad influence, and all he totally wants is the best for troubled young girls. 

In conclusion, he says, "Call me whatever name you need to but please, leave these women alone." 

The fact is, if Lutfi were so concerned about his "friend" Amanda, he wouldn't be capitalizing off of her mental misfortunes ... nor would he be bringing up Britney Spears' much, much darker days. 

The fact is, preying on women who clearly need help that you're not qualified to give puts you in a box ... and that box is labeled "Emotional Predator." And that's as violating and disturbing as anything else.

So this is Jaden Smith's brand new music video for his song "Blue Ocean," with vocals by Willow Smith, directed by massive creeper Moises Arias, and featuring (and possibly inspired by) none other than Kylie Jenner. It's a lot to take in for sure, but you're going to want to push through. Because it's that bizarre.

But let's go ahead and get to the real meat of the issue, which is this: is Jaden Smith in unrequited love with Kylie Jenner? It sure does look like Kylie might have something going on with Tyga right now, but here she is in this here video, kissing on Jaden. And take a quick listen to some of the lyrics:

Don't tell me you cried 'cause I know that you didn't
Don't tell me you love me I know I'm just trippin'

And, of course, that repeated line, "I hope your man doesn't get jealous." Take all that, along with those quick clips of Kylie's midriff and that kiss, and, well, it looks like we've got some teenage drama on our hands, doesn't it?

Never forget:

FKA Twigs, guys ... we heard about her because Robert Pattinson started hanging out with her, but now, it's pretty safe to say that we love her for her. This is a video that she made using only some remixes of a couple of her songs, Google Glass, and her own awesomeness. Are you impressed? Intrigued? Excited for Robert Pattinson that he manages to date such very, very cool ladies?

The correct answer is "all of the above," obviously. Check this out, y'all, and you too can fall in love with the magic that is Twigs.

While many of us -- Fishwrapper included -- were quick to write Shia LaBeouf off as just another sad jackass, it turns out that Shia's had reasons for everything he's done. Some of those reasons really are sad -- tragic, actually -- and some of them might not make sense, but still, Shia sounds like a pretty decent dude. You know, considering.

On Ben Affleck:

Ben is a really charming dude. He was the first guy who really took me off to the side and made me feel like I could do it. [He said] "Keep your head on straight, kid, and don't let all this get to you." He knew that I had cameras in my face and that there were expectations to perform. I think that's always been my issue. I'm prone to theatrics in my life. When you're in front of a film crew, the worst thing that an actor can be is boring, and that flows over into my life. Ben saw that I turned reality up to 11. I was a wild man at that wrap party. I was still very edgy and remained so for a long time—and that was sort of my appeal to a lot of directors and casting agents. Ben saw that and was trying to curb it before it became an issue. He was unsuccessful.

On his relationship with his father:

The only thing my father gave me that was of any value to me is pain. The only time my dad will ever talk to me is when I need him at work. He knows to pick up the Skype phone call, and he knows what I'm looking for. It's not to say "Hey, Dad." We manipulate each other. We service each other. I use him when I go to work. It's not a real conversation; it's just an excuse to rev up. He's the marionette puppeteer. My dad is the key to most of my base emotions. My greatest and my worst memories are with my father, all my major trauma and major celebration came from him. It's a negative gift. And I'm not ready to let go of it, because anger has a lot of power.

On religion:

I found God doing Fury. I became a Christian man, and not in a f---ing bulls--- way—in a very real way. I could have just said the prayers that were on the page. But it was a real thing that really saved me. And you can't identify unless you're really going through it. It's a full-blown exchange of heart, a surrender of control.

On acting:

I've been a runner my whole life, running from myself. Whether to movies or drinking and drugging or f---ing calamity or whatever it is, I've always been running. I'm a dude who loves delusion. It's why I love being an actor—I never have to actually look at myself or be faced with my s--- or take responsibility. So it's been an eye-opening thing to have to look at myself, at my life, and have these reflective moments.

So does he get a pass, is he on the right track now? It really does look like it.
