!! OMG, How do I know if he’s really gay? !!

You know how you have those snooty know-it-all friends who live in New York and Los Angeles and they’re always going on and on about how every celebrity is gay and they know for sure because they have some friend who went home with him once? I know, I know! I am one of those people, and I’m still sick of it. (I know this guy who… oh, never mind.)
With all the gossip flying around, how’s a guy to know if George Clooney might accept your marriage proposal? Unless we accept the (maybe not-so-implausible?) premise that every male celebrity is at least a little freaky-deaky, it can be difficult to unravel the complicated web of gay rumors that follow basically every actor ever to grace even the teensiest screen. Luckily, Gawker has a handy guide to cutting right to the chase. While I might quibble with a few of their guidelines, it’s basically totally right on. No spoilers here, though– if you’re desperate for a semi-failproof litmus test for knowing whether “certain scientologists” are total homos, you’ll have to click over to Gawker.

!! OMG, She’s turning into a cartoon baby: Britney Spears !!

It’s obviously nothing new for pop stars to speak with fake-o British accents. Madonna’s been doing it for years, and it’s surely just a matter of time before Lady Gaga starts talking like Camilla Parker-Bowles. But how many singing sensations pattern their anglophilic affectation after British cartoon babies!? Correct me if I’m wrong, but I count just one: Miss Britney Spears herself!

The 28-year-old singer has become obsessed with animated US TV show ‘Family Guy’ and has reportedly been wandering around Los Angeles’ Mondrian Hotel mimicking the voice of troublesome baby Stewie, whose English accent is voiced by show creator Seth MacFarlane.

A source said: “Britney has developed a real fascination for ‘Family Guy’. She’s been staying in the hotel’s penthouse suite and has been watching box sets.”

Britney has been addressing hotel staff in the voice much to their amusement.

The source to The Sun newspaper: “She really likes Stewie and has been trying to copy his British accent. It’s a bit weird, especially when she’s in the gym speaking like a camp Brit.”

This is not the first time Britney has spoken in a British accent.

!! OMG, she’s on the pole: Martha Stewart !!

If you’re like me and don’t have a real job, I hope you’re as obsessed with the Martha Stewart show as I am. Ever since this lady got out of the big house she has been absolutely on fire! Whether she’s doing yoga with Mrs. Sting Trudie Styler, having an on air mother-daughter tiff with her bitchy spawn Alexis or interviewing weird bloggers, Martha always comes to the table with a f*ck-it joie de vivre that is truly inspiring in its craziness. Today, she pole dances with Sheila Kelley, the S Factor workout queen. Although Martha begs Ms. Kelley to let her do “the upside-down things,” the routine sadly doesn’t quite make it there. It’s still the best thing I’ve seen since Hoda and Kathie Lee this morning though!
Since I can’t find an embeddable version of the video, click over to Jezebel to watch Martha in action.

!! OMG, RIP Kate McGarrigle !!


Sad news from north of the border: The family of Kate McGarrigle confirmed today that the Canadian folk legend died on Monday after battling a rare form of cancer. She was 63.
McGarrigle is best known for her work with her sister Anna as the McGarrigle Sisters and is the mother of performers Rufus and Martha Wainwright. Together the McGarrigle Sisters released 10 albums, in both English and French, and recorded with a variety of musicians, including Lou Reed, Nick Cave, Leonard Cohen and Jarvis Cocker.
