Adorable Emma Watson Likes American Boys, Hates Their Footwear


English guys… dress really well and they are very well mannered. But they are also very restrained. Usually in the whole courting situation, I‘m used to being, first of all, ignored for the first two months of the ritual. And then maybe they’ll acknowledge my presence. Then, they’ll probably be a little mean to me. And then, maybe we’ll, you know…whatever. Then I arrive in America, and I remember a few nights into Brown [University], this guy just being like, ‘I like you. You’re great. Let’s go on a date. Let’s do it.’ I’m like, ‘I’m sorry, what just happened?’ This is like a huge culture shock for me. They’re very like open and very straight-forward - but they wear flip-flops and I don’t know if I like that.

If You Wanna Take a Ride Wit Nelly, Leave Your Drugs at Home

Looks like everyone’s favorite rapper from the Lou isn’t just smoking L in the back of his Benz-y anymore. TMZ is reporting that Texas cops found heroin on his tour bus.

We’re told cops pulled the bus over — and after performing a search, they found 36 small baggies of heroin (totaling .64 ounces) and over TEN POUNDS of marijuana inside a large green duffel bag (an amount roughly the size of a large bed pillow).

In which a naive Blake Lively makes Ben Affleck feel old:

When I was doing The Town, I’d tour the actors around Boston. I was with Blake [Lively], and I saw Matt’s childhood home. And I said, “Oh yeah, that’s where Matt grew up.” And she said, “Who?” And I said, “Matt Damon.” And she said, “Oh my God! You know Jason Bourne?!” She really didn’t know. And I thought, “There it is. The first age of people who are adults who missed the whole Matt-and-Ben propaganda campaign!” Mostly, it just made me feel old.

Kelsey Grammer should have listened to his tattoo artist’s grandmother. The 57-year-old, thrice-divorced actor inked his new wife Kayte’s name on his waistline this weekend (this is the former flight attendant he famously cheated on Real Housewife Camille Grammer with), but cooler heads were present at the tattoo parlor in the form of the tattoo artist’s grandmother. The wise Christine Darbo said afterward:

I figured with his background he should just put a ‘K’ with a period to give him some flexibility.

Word, Kelsey. With age comes wisdom, or something, and his track record is not compatible with permanent ink. Maybe should have consulted grandma on this one.

Imma let you finish, but Kim Kardashian dating Kanye West is the greatest ego-trip of a celeb hookup OF ALL TIME. That shit cray. It’s obviously been in the works for awhile, but they went on an official, media-approved date, so now we can discuss. And, in a burst of publicity genius, Kanye just put out a song in which he mentions falling for Kim “around the same time she fell in love with him.” It’s like Yeezy just offered a lyrical explanation for the two of them going to see The Hunger Games. This development does pose some particularly important questions though:
1) Just how big of a publicity stunt is this?2) Is Kanye really able to love someone other than Kanye?3) Is Kim actually going to date a non-athlete?4) Why would Kim start publicly dating Kanye while estranged manchild Kris Humphries is telling anyone who will listen that he has proof that she cheated on him…probably with Kanye?! 5) If Kris does get cut from the Nets, can we just assume 'Ye got Jay to do it?6) How is this going to work when Kim starts filming Keeping Up with the Kardashians in Every Major City Across the Universe again?7) What does Khloe think?8) What does Bruce think?9) How long will it take Mama Kris to start hounding Kanye to cough up a ring?10) Will they get married at the mall? Does Kim eat fish fillet? Did she meet him in the bathroom stall? And show him why she deserves to have it allllll?11) Will Dash start selling Kanye’s label?12) Will PETA flour-bomb Kanye now? Apparently his mink is dragging on the floor.13) Would Kim date him if his name didn’t start with a ‘K’?14) If Kim gets to start hanging out with Beyonce, where should I go to shoot myself?15) I would pay to watch Kanye bond with Scott Disick. Not a question. Just a fact.

Jennifer Lopez has a male stunt double, and he is fierce. Look at him! This is the best preview for a J.Lo video I’ve ever seen (and that includes those “Jenny From the Block" stills of Ben Affleck caressing/smooching her rear). Bravo, J.Dude! You’ve made me actually look forward to her “Follow the Leader” video. Give the man a raise.

Dion Antwoord?

It seems scowling Afrikaan rap-ravers Die Antwoord have an unexpected not-so-guilty pleasure who they’re dying to work with: Canadian superstar and endearingly crazypants Celine Dion. Says Ninja, the group’s MC:

"I fucking love Celine Dion. Celine is the ultimate. We want to work with her more than anybody. I’m going to keep saying it in interviews because I want it to happen so badly."

Ninja goes on to say that “Think Twice" is his favorite song by the chanteuse, and that Celine would "bust the most beautifullest hook in the whole world" if she’d collaborate with them. This could be a brilliant. I fully support this venture. Just imagine Celine contributing to their latest single, "I Fink U Freeky." Remix, please?

The Notorious B.I.C.

It happened! The crown princess of all that is music arrived on January 7 (I was actually surprised Beyonce wasn’t induced on January 4th, for obvious reasons), and the internet exploded. Ex-plo-ded. Reports that Beyonce and Jay-Z named their daughter Blue Ivy Carter set off a rumormongering firestorm on Twitter, and speculation as to her name’s origin seemed like the only topic being discussed online. People, “Eulb Yvi" doesn’t mean shit in Latin. Seriously. (For the record: Ivy represents the Roman numeral IV, and Blue signifies Jay’s three highly successful Blueprint albums. She’s the fourth, his “greatest creation.”)

But what really surprised me was the tune, “Glory,” that Jay managed to release within 48 hours of Babyonce’s birth. A sweet, “Isn’t She Lovely"-type song with cutesy proud-pop wordplay. "The most beautifulest thing in this world;" "You’re a child of destiny…You’re my child from the child from Destiny’s Child;" "A pinch of Hov’/A whole glass of B." Adorable!

But, also, there was this:

"All the pain of the last time/I prayed so hard it was the last time."

And:

"Last time the miscarriage was so tragic we was afraid this time you’d disappear/But nah baby, you magic."

Shit guys! Beyonce had a miscarriage! This news is notable not because it happened (which is heartbreaking for the famous and not-famous alike), but because Jigga actually mentioned it! He volunteered that information! This is a couple who wouldn’t confirm they were dating for years, or even that they were married. These two protect their privacy at all costs, and Jay just went and spilled some seriously personal information! I wouldn’t have believed that this song was authentic if it hadn’t been released on Jay-Z’s own site.

But looking beyond the surprise revelation, congrats to Her Royal Highness, The Infant Fierce, who can now claim her title as the youngest person ever to grace a Billboard chart. Willow Smith better watch her back!

Robyn was completely awesome on SNL this past weekend, but cast member Taran Killam prepped for her appearance in the best possible way: By recreating her amazing “Call Your Girlfriend" video - furry jacket, flashing lights, floor humping and all. Love.
