Five reasons to be happy you're not Kate Moss

There are plenty of reasons to envy Kate Moss: she’s incredibly gorgeous, she dated Johnny Depp, and she singlehandedly changed the face of modeling. (Thanks for the size zero, Kate!). But if her new interview with Vanity Fair is anything to go by, then there are plenty of reasons to be happy you’re not a supermodel as well. So if you, like me, have been living on a diet of Halloween candy and Club crackers in the wake of Hurricane Sandy (that’s what happens when you have no power and trick-or-treating is postponed — it’s inevitable), then here are five reasons not to feel guilty about those 10 fun-size Snickers bars.

1. She’s insecure: “I don’t want to be myself, ever,” said Moss. She even admitted to asking John Galliano to give her a character on her wedding day. “[Galliano] said, ‘You have a secret — you are the last of the English roses. Hide under that veil. When he lifts it, he’s going to see your wanton past!’” READ FULL STORY

'Walking Dead' graph breaks down every episode

Have you ever wondered why you keep watching The Walking Dead, even when nothing ever seems to happen? Well, thanks to this colorful graph from the good people over at Blame It On The Voices, now we know and — spoiler alert! — it’s because all the episodes follow basically the same pattern. Check it out below (NSFW):


Donald Trump has YUUGE info about Obama that could change the election, claims Donald Trump

So that‘s why Donald Trump’s hair is so fluffy: It’s full of secrets. And tomorrow, he’ll reveal one of those secrets to the world at large.

It’s gonna be yuge.

Trump announced on Fox & Friends yesterday that he knows “something very, very big concerning the president of the United States.” The mogul told TMZ Live that he plans to release said information “around noonish” on Wednesday, though he demurred when asked to give any more information about it — including whether Obama will be happy once Trump’s October Surprise has gone public. So far, Trump’s extremely active Twitter page has remained mum on the issue, though he has opined about Lance Armstrong and his “enemies.”

So, what could Trump possibly have up his incredibly luxurious sleeves?  READ FULL STORY

Lil Wayne croons 'Take Me Out to the Ball Game' at Giants-Cardinals playoff -- VIDEO

Weezy may not be a human being, but he sure sings like one — and not one with a particularly strong voice. The rapper took to the field at San Francisco’s AT&T Park last night, cheering on the home team with an endearingly off-key rendition of “Take Me Out to the Ball Game.” Though Lil Wayne is originally from New Orleans, he does have a connection to the Boys from the Bay — he’s friends with Giants second baseman Ryan Theriot, another Louisiana native.

So what if he wasn’t exactly Whitney at Super Bowl XXV? What matters is that Wayne had a good time:

'Cry Me A River': Justin Timberlake isn't married to you

Well, the moment anyone who ever perfected a “Bye Bye Bye” dance dreaded has finally arrived: Justin Timberlake is officially hitched. Alas, he didn’t marry you; he married Jessica Biel. Best wishes to them, of course. But Twitter informs me that some women are just a wee bit upset at hearing the news that the guy they’ve been planning to marry since they were 13 has gone and rudely tied the knot without them. I just received an email from a friend “jokingly” asking if we could cancel our plans tonight, as she would be inconsolable for at least 24 hours.

In honor of the new chapter in his life – and then end of a chapter in yours — check out some of our favorite moments that have had us crushing on Timberlake over the years.

He Displays Some Model Behavior:
For many, this was where the crush began. If the movies have taught us anything, it’s that the only thing between you and your favorite celebrity falling in love with you is physically being in the same space. That’s certainly the story when Jason (Timberlake) falls in love with a real-life, ordinary high school girl. (Start the video at 6:00 for maximum Timberlake swooning). READ FULL STORY

Imagining a 'Family Circus' movie -- as directed by Fincher, Burton, Eastwood...


Golly gee willikers, funnies fans! The circus is coming to town — The Family Circus, that is! (Nailed it.)

While a film adaptation of everyone’s fourth-favorite one-panel comic has been in development since 2010, Fox and Walden Media have only just selected a writing team to pen a script. Nichole Millard and Kathryn Price seem like the right pair for the job; their first movie, 2007′s The Game Plan, was a feel-good family flick about the joys of parenthood. As long as they can come up with some killer “pasketti and meat bulbs” jokes, they’ll be good to go.

But Millard and Price’s script can only take The Family Circus: Bigger, Longer, and Uncut so far. Film is a director’s medium — and material this rich is sure to attract a stable of big names. How could each of the contenders put his own stamp on the project? Let’s play a game of Bil Keane-approved make believe.

David Fincher
A grown-up Billy (Jesse Eisenberg) has graduated from nicking cookies to robbing banks — and now he’s leading a team of cops on a wild goose chase over the fence, up the tree, down the tree, into the fountain, inside the doghouse, under the garage…


Kellan Lutz says he'll win an Oscar someday

From vampire red blood to Oscar’s red carpet?

Kellan Lutz (who plays Edward’s big bro Emmett in the Twilight franchise) recently told DuJour magazine, “I want to act for the rest of my life. I’ll win an Oscar one day, but I’m in no rush to get there. I don’t care if that takes me 50 years, and I’m old. I just love what I do.”

While I think we can all agree Lutz won’t be receiving an Oscar for his body of work in Twilight, who knows what the future will hold? His previous roles (90210, Stick It) haven’t required much of him beyond his good looks, but perhaps the future will showcase the talent buried underneath his pounds of muscle. READ FULL STORY

Aaron Carter says Justin Bieber's new video reminds him of 'Aaron's Party'. Which tween idol do you prefer?

Hey, Justin. Hey, it’s Aaron. I can’t come out tonight.” I need to talk about your video.

On Monday, Aaron Carter tweeted, “Justin Bieber’s new video reminds me of my video for Aaron’s Party.” Carter is referring to Bieber’s new self-directed video for his duet with Nicki Minaj, “Beauty and the Beat.” While the two videos are different — and Carter certainly didn’t say it was a rip-off — he’s got a point. For anyone who was the right tween age for “Aaron’s Party,” the “Beauty” video was bound to bring back a few PG-rated house party memories. (Although Carter’s party never had the star grinding against Nicki Minaj).

Because we at PopWatch will take just about any excuse to look back at that 2000 (!) hit, we broke down some intel regarding teen pop idols then and now.

Number of Albums Sold:
1.5 million (for Believe)(doesn’t include digital downloads)
1.5 million (for Aaron’s Party (Come Get It) ) READ FULL STORY

Singer Sarah Brightman is headed to outer space

She may be losing her heart to a starship trooper once again.

Sarah Brightman, the world-famous soprano best known for originating the role of Christine in Phantom of the Opera, is going intergalactic. The British singer announced today that she has booked a trip to the International Space Station.

Prior to departure, she’ll spend six months at Russia’s Star City cosmonaut training center. She said she’s heading to outer space in part to promote the U.N. agency’s message (Brightman is a UNESCO ambassador), in particular by encouraging women’s education in the sciences and environmental awareness.

If she succeeds, she’ll be the first recording artist in space. Former *NSYNCer Lance Bass famously tried in 2002, but his plans never got off the ground.

Kanye West deletes his Twitter; a nation mourns

Maybe Kanye West is trying to create buzz for a new project, like that rumored Cruel Winter album. Maybe he wanted to cede the virtual spotlight to Kim Kardashian, who could really use more attention. Maybe he just realized he could never top “I specifically ordered persian rugs with cherub imagery!!! What do I have to do to get a simple persian rug with cherub imagery uuuuugh.”

Whatever the reason, West has officially deleted every single one of his brilliant, ridiculous tweets — minus an ominous message that simply reads “BE BACK SOON.”

It’s not right, but it’s okay. At least we’ll always have this video of Josh Groban singing Yeezy’s greatest Twitter hits:
