So, I met her. I finally met Ms. Lindsay Lohan if only for just an introduction. Sunset Tower Hotel. GQ Awards. I will not go into all the names she has been called and may or may not deserve. I will say this though. She came up to the people I was speaking with because one of the group was a friend of LL and so introductions were made all around. She seemed normal, and after a phone conversation I had with someone shortly before meeting LL, I would have thought otherwise. Honestly, and this kills me, she looked really good. Movie star good. I so much wanted her to look bad, but she really was dressed really well and her hair and makeup were flawless. I hate myself.
So, I was told there will be no more pantyless shots of Ms. Spears. I think you know who told me, but we should try to be vague as that is what makes it more fun. Besides, the reasons offered up for all the shots were also vague.
1. It had been a LONG time since she got to just wear a short skirt and go out and have fun, and the pap did not used to go for those shots. She has done it before with no problems.
2. It was going to be used as a joke when Britney and Paris hosted the Billboard Music Awards, which obviously is off for the moment.
3. There was a third reason, but I cannot go into that one and really, it was said as a joke. I think.
For my Australian LINK of the day I was going to talk about the Wiggles since they are Australian and because my nieces and nephews love them, but I really only found US coverage of them, and it did not seem appropriate to be a smart ass when talking about them anyway, so I let it go.
So on to the others instead. I LOVE this headline. You are going to have to click to see it. I will not give it away.
Nicole Kidman is the highest paid actress in Hollywood and it took me by surprise because I actually thought Reese made more $ last year. The two other interesting items in the article, are (1) I think an Australian newspaper could have found a better pic of Nicole, so I put one here which is much nicer, and (2) one of the 2nd place names does not belong on the list, but a mistake was made, and it remained on at press time.
On most days it is tough to find a New Zealand link of the day and I end up having to mish mash something. But today, NZ really came through. It basically says Rachel Hunter got nothing in her divorce with Rod Stewart but that Rachel refused to be like Heather Mills. uh huh, right..
With our newfound ban on all things ctv, it was much easier to find gossip from Canada.
I know everyone has seen the new-do that Gwen Stefani has been sporting lately, but this interview with Much Music in Toronto is actually really good. One minor note about which I am sure the writer has received about a thousand calls and e-mails is that he basically said women who are breastfeeding cannot be glamorous.
Now, I wanted to give equal time to Vancouver, but you have no entertainment or gossip news in your paper. How do you live?
So instead, we head back to Toronto and to Vegas and to Montreal all in one article. How is that much sucking up possible? Celine Dion of course and her horrible infection.
I will be back later with a blind item and of course tomorrow will be the Friday Four or Five where you get four or five brief blind items on Friday. Makes sense huh?
