Celebrity Gossip Of The Day

From Popbitch (UK).

Jennifer Lopez is back in the charts and on TV and, frankly, everywhere again. She's very keen on the world knowing that she's just a regular girl and has no idea where she got her diva reputation. Well that may be true. Then again, when she was approached to do her first big American magazine cover, her people said she’d do it. If the magazine bought her a Bentley.

On a recent trip to LA, the Beckhams missed their UK dogs, so they sent a private jet to pick them up from London and fly them over. When the dogs got to America it became apparent that they weren't comfortable in the California heat, so they were put back on the private jet and flown home again. The cost of this kind gesture? Around one hundred grand.

Poor old Britney, she's 30 this year and still banging out anonymous Autotuned pop while gyrating on stage with all the enthusiasm of an underpaid stripper in a Shoreditch titty bar. Someone who met Britney on the shoot for her new video described her as "entirely dead behind the eyes".

Without wishing to perpetuate any unkind stereotypes about sci-fi lovers, it must be tricky for the stars of such shows to deal with the unwanted physical attention they get from admirers at fan conventions. Farscape's Claudia Black has a rather neat trick for dealing with whiffy fans though. They invariably want their picture taken with her and will go to put their arm around her. Claudia counters that by putting her arm around them first, so she doesn't get the smell of their BO on her clothes.

  1. Claudia Black could also avoid getting her fans' BO on her clothes if she would simply take them off.

  2. 100 grand to fly dogs back and forth across the world--that's so crazy. It's really hard for me to imagine having that kind of money and feeling free enough to throw it around so carelessly. Such a waste. Just think what else could have been done with that money instead. And, haven't they heard of air-conditioning? Couldn't they have kept them in an air-conditioned building some place?

  3. Daisy, air-conditioned buildings, especially in CA, go for a lot more than $100K!

  4. Ha! Yes, I'm sure you're right, Frank. :-) I was thinking more along the lines of keeping the dogs with them in whatever air-conditioned building they were staying in themselves, since they were missing them so much and all. They could probably find an air-conditioned hotel room that accepts pets where they could all stay.

    Or perhaps, keep them at an air-conditioned kennel, if need be, or at the home of a friend until it was time to return to London. Flying the dogs (along with themselves) back on a commercial flight instead of a private jet would have saved a dollar or two also.

  5. Or just get rid of them if you travel that much.
