Meet 'Stalker Sarah,' a normal teen who's become a red carpet fixture

Fame is a communicable disease — spend enough time rubbing elbows with the stars, and you’ll soon discover that your arms are simply covered in notoriety. Before long, you could be famous in your own right without so much as an Auto-Tuned single to your name.

Take, for example, the curious case of “Stalker Sarah,” a 16-year-old girl who’s snagged photos with everyone from Brad Pitt to Justin Bieber, Justin Bieber, and Justin Bieber. Sarah M. — she doesn’t reveal her last name for fear of online predators — has been in the celebrity photo game for more than four years. As of today, her Flickr portfolio boasts over 4,800 images, most of which show Sarah grinning as she stands just to the left of a boldface name. Many of her photos are taken at high-profile premieres and parties, while others are snapped on the street or in other public spots. (“It’s almost as if I can’t get away from celebrities at this point,” she says.) Thanks to her dogged pursuit of celeb portraits, Sarah’s already been featured in the Daily Mail and on Good Morning America, among other media outlets.

So how does a normal kid stumble on herds of celebrities in the wild — and how in the world does she get invited to events like American Idol‘s finale party or Nylon‘s Young Hollywood party? Sarah didn’t reveal all of her trade secrets when EW chatted with her over the phone yesterday — but she did shed light on her process. READ FULL STORY

New 'Gears of War' game announced

gears-of-war-3

The Gears of War trilogy told the epic tale of manic-depressive beefcake super-soldiers with a knack for hiding behind debris. Last year’s Gears of War 3 ended the genre-defining saga. Or did it? Game Informer has revealed a first look at the next entry in Epic Games’ shooter franchise. There’s not much to go on — we’ll learn more about the game next Monday, at Microsoft’s E3 conference — but for now, check out this cover and start theorizing:

Behind the scenes of 'One Man, Two Guvnors' TV spot -- EXCLUSIVE VIDEO

If you’re (a) in the New York area, (b) in possession of a moderate amount of disposable income and (c) familiar with the feeling of laughter, you should know about James Corden’s star-making performance in One Man, Two Guvnors, arguably the funniest show running on Broadway that doesn’t have to do with Mormons.

'Iron Man 3' set photos: Check out the new villain!

The Avengers is still reaping boy-band cash in theaters. But the all-seeing eye of the Internet has already shifted forward to 2013, when Marvel will release the Iron Man threequel and the Thor sequel. Earlier this month, Iron Man 3 officially signed James Badge Dale — better known as “the quietly heroic guy from The Pacific,” “the quietly paranoid guy from Rubicon,” and “the dude who got his hand chopped off on 24.” Official word was that Dale was playing Eric Savin, a soldier in the comic books who was fatally injured in combat, only to be resurrected by the magic of ’80s science into the cyborg anti-hero known as Coldblood. However, new photos taken from the set of Iron Man 3 indicate that this version of Savin will incorporate elements of another character. Check out the full-sized photo below: READ FULL STORY

Lady Gaga hits 25 million Twitter followers

There are few things more satisfying than being the very best in the world at something. And in the go-go modern age, it’s possible to become the world champion of something that didn’t even exist a few years ago. (I’m convinced that the vast majority of iPad games were built by people who just wanted to enter their initials in their games’ Global Ten List.) Today, Lady Gaga reaffirmed her status as the World’s Most Followed Tweeter by crossing the 25 million threshold. That’s about 2.5 million more than her closest competitor, Canadian superteen and greaser Boyfriend Justin Bieber.

“#25milliontweetymonsters‬ wow! I’m officially feeling like the luckiest girl in the world today. Last sold out show in Singapore in 2 hrs!” tweeted the world’s most popular drama geek. In no time at all, the pop star was refocused on her usual blend of observational comedy. “Can you believe that freakin bird is still outside my room whistling! I feel like he’s auditioning,” tweeted Gaga. Just to provide some context, 2 million people watched Mad Men on Sunday, 20 million people watched the American Idol finale, and 25 million people know that there is a bird chirping outside of Lady Gaga’s Singapore hotel room.

Kathie Lee's Martin Short gaffe: Worse than her James Taylor blunder, or when she made a kid cry?

By now, you probably know the story: Martin Short appeared on the fourth hour of Today yesterday to promote Madagascar 3. Partway through his conversation with co-anchors Hoda Kotb and Kathie Lee Gifford, Gifford jovially asked Short to talk about his marriage — apparently unaware that Short’s wife, actress Nancy Dolman, died of ovarian cancer in 2010. The former SNL star took Gifford’s clueless questions in stride, even though his heart must have been breaking… especially when Gifford went on to ask if he and Dolman were still in love, or how they make each other laugh. Eeeesh.

In hindsight, it was a supremely uncomfortable exchange — but it might not be Gifford’s worst-ever onscreen gaffe. In 1997, Gifford made a similar blunder while chatting with guest James Taylor on her old show with Regis Philbin. She asked the musician how his older brother Alex was doing; “I wish I could say he was doing well,” Taylor replied. “Alex died about four years ago.”  READ FULL STORY

This is the 'Dark Knight Rises'/'My Little Pony' trailer mashup we deserve, not the one we need -- VIDEO

Because nobody really needs fan videos that combine Friendship Is Magic with The Hunger Games, or The Happening, or Rock of Ages — but aren’t you glad that they exist?

In the following clip, a YouTube-savvy brony (or pegasister!) named cloverfieldmoster skillfully blends audio from the theatrical Dark Knight Rises trailer with images from The Hub’s hit series My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. It shouldn’t work — but thanks to Batman Batmare stand-in Rainbow Dash’s intense gaze and the cartoon’s surprisingly epic feel, these diametric opposites actually go pretty well together. Best part: when Bane replacement Discord laughs evilly as what look like hamburgers fall from the sky.
