Pretty Extraordinary Hate Machine

I knew it ... I knew that Paris Hilton wouldn't be hiding from the cameras for long ... check out this picture of Miss Hilton from a concert party for The Killers earlier this weekend:

Looks like Paris had a bad run-in with a load of hot wax. Ah well, it's a small price to pay to keep from havin' a 'stache, right Paris? [Source, thanks Joan]

Here is a picture of a cool and collected-looking Ashlee Simpson (pre-SNL) as she arrives at her hotel in NYC this weekend:

So what do we think about her performance??? The first song was a'ight I suppose, Boyfriend was just OK ... I am not a fan of her hair tho ... terrrrrrible! And what was with that dress ... and the barefeet?! Boo. And she didn't even dance a ho-down ...? I stayed up for this? [Source]

Speaking of the Simpsons, here is a picture of Nick Lachey and Jessica Simpson after having fled the US for the shores of Great Britain:

They sure do look happy, don't they? Well, they're "still together" ... or so they say ... it's all a bit too much to hope for, I'm afraid ... I'd like to root for our favorite Newlyweds but it just doesn't feel right ... I fear the end is inevitable. But they've put on a brave face and are holding down the party line. I guess only time will tell. [Source]

Time heals all wounds ... even wounds caused by car accidents that stem from speeding down a trendy Beverly Hills street while trying to evade the paparazzi ... but I don't think it's been enough time for Lindsay Lohan to smile in front the cameras just yet ... here are a couple of pictures of Elisha Cuthbert and L. Lo at Koi in LA last Friday night:

Homegirl looks piiiiiiiiised. I wouldn't be surprised if she ended up recording a song called Confessions of a Super Pissed Off Pop Star Who Had to Junk her Beautiful Black Mercedes and now Has To Spend the Time Shopping for a New Set of Wheels. I'm sure it'll be a catchy little ditty. [Source]

Hilary Duff and Joel Madden have been spending the past week in Europe in order to make Hilary's birthday celebration last as long as possible:

Our fair Jilary spent some time in France and Hilary is off to Spain ... and even tho she had some bizznazz to take care of, I'm sure they made time for one another to ensure that they had a blast together. Wee! I can't wait until I can take my own European tour someday. [Source]

Whoopsie! When are celebs going to learn that drugs are bad ... have we learned nothing from Kate Moss? Well, it seems that Boy George hasn't learned anything because he was arrested this weekend in NYC on drug possession charges:

Apparently, Boy George called 911 to report a burglary in his apartment ... when the police showed up they found a small amount of cocaine near his computer ... and then a large amount of cocaine elsewhere in the apartment. Er, yeah ... if you are going to call the police and have them come to your place you might want to make sure your illegal drugs are out of sight ... just a thought. [Source, thanks Andy]

Orlando Bloom and Kate Bosworth are still very much together ... check out the randy and playful pair on the beach:

It's so refreshing to see that Orlando has a nice handful of booty to play with instead of just having to caress her protruding bones. [Source]

Finally ... a nice picture of Jennifer Aniston makes it on the cover of a magazine ... check out Jen on the cover of the US version of Elle magazine:

She looks alive, vibrant ... now I believe that she's happy! Great pix ... it's nice to see her looking nice and happier for a change. [Source]

And finally, here are some promo pictures of this season's cast of Charmed:

Don't get me wrong ... I'm very glad that the show has been given one more season but I really hope they've learned from the mess that last year's season was. The story arc was terrible ... it didn't feel cohesive at all. I am encouraged that they have added a new, tech-savvy witch to the cast this year. We'll see if Billie can hang with our fave Charmed Ones. I felt the season premiere and the second episode were just Eh so far ... they're gonna have to step it up if they are going to come out with a successful final season. And please get rid of the new personas ... they didn't even turn themselves into cute people. Have you seen what Leo looks like with his new persona? UGLY! Lose the masquerade and get things back to normal folks. [Source]

So last night I was able to go to the Nine Inch Nails show in Detroit ... I almost skipped the show because I had to get up so early to make my flight out to LA but I decided that I simply couldn't skip out on NIN. Man, am I glad that I did go to the show ... it was amazing:


Love Is Not Enough
Terrible Lie
The Line Begins To Blur
March Of The Pigs
The Frail
The Wretched
Gave Up
Right Where It Belongs
Beside You In Time
The Hand That Feeds
Head Like A Hole

No Encore

I've seen a lot of NIN shows ... going all the way back to New Year's Eve 1994-1995 ... and seeing them again really took me back. It's weird, I know ... most people are very surprised to learn that I am a huge NIN fan ... but we do go way back. It's great to see Trent Reznor looking so great these days. He gave an awesome interview to the Detroit Free Press talking about his sobriety and I have to admit ... sobriety works for him. He looks AMAZING. That mothereffer has got some great arms ... he is even hotter than he used to be! If you get the chance to check out NIN live you better get your ass out there to see them. Brilliant show ... I promise. Trent hardly ever talks to the audience but he was really chatty here in Detroit. The entire venue sang along with Hurt and he thanked the crowd for being amazing. It was very cool. I was supposed to see them again tomorrow night in Cleveland but ... my LA trip got sprung on me so I have to miss it. I can assure you, if NIN come back my way I will deffo see them again ... and again ... and again ...

Yikes! I have to get to the airport ... When next we meet I'll be in Sunny California! Holla atcha West Coast Bitches!!!
