You Can Get Yours, Too: Lessons From Katy Perry


During a homecoming performance at her old high school a couple of weeks ago, Katy Perry had - and took - the opportunity to do what many teens fantasize about being able to do some day: Mock an old crush who never gave her a chance back in school.

The Grammy-nominated...

Celebrity Tweets Help Raise Money For Charity


If you haven't done so already, you have from now until Saturday, September 25 to bid on a chance to have one of your favorite celebrities follow you, mention you, or give you a retweet on Twitter.

‘Dancing With The Stars’ Could Be Therapeutic For Jennifer Grey


She's declined an invitation to the show in the past, but everyone's favorite "Baby," actress Jennifer Grey, decided 2010 would be the year she participates on ABC's Dancing with the Stars.

The thus far seriously successful 11th season of DWTS kicked off Monday night and apparently the years since she starred opposite Patrick Swayze in 1987's Dirty Dancing have been kind to her:

Lindsay Lohan’s Failed Drug Test Raises Rehab Questions

According to , Lindsay Lohan - who was recently released (seriously early, mind you) from court-ordered rehab - admitted this past weekend to failing a drug test.

Sure, she still attended her AA meeting, but, she's already failing drugs tests. I am no stranger to the addiction game. Fortunately, I've never dealt firsthand with alcoholism or drug addiction, but have friends and loved ones who have, so I'm not shocked that Lindsay failed a drug test this soon after being released from rehab.

The reasons...

Kate Hudson appears on the cover of the October issue of British Elle (which hit stands September 1) and although the magazine's website tempts fans with a few tiny crumbs of the interview's main dish, The Huffington Post features several more morsels.

Most notably, Hudson's attitude toward one of the downsides of being a celebrity:
Do I mind having my appearance constantly scrutinized? I don't have enough time on this planet to worry about things like that. I'm more concerned...

Steven Slater To Undergo Mental Health Evaluation


Despite acting as the muse for such earwormy little ditties like Jimmy Fallon's "The Ballad of Steven Slater" and being invited to the Emmy Awards, this summer's biggest celebrity who's not a celebrity, Steven Slater, still had his day in court this past Tuesday.

Sort of.

The former Jet Blue (and by former, I mean, he was still employed with the company up until last week?!) employee appeared on charges of trespassing, reckless endangerment, and criminal mischief, but ultimately the case was adjourned until...
