In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Carrie Underwood supports gay marriage and Lindsay Lohan gets set to work with a porn star for an indie thriller.
HIT: One Direction write songs for their girlfriends
What use is your boyfriend if he has a sweet voice but won’t write any songs about you? Absolutely none. So it’s nice to see the boys of 1D put their talent to work. They’ve been busy penning song for their next album and it seems they’ve been inspired by homesickness and their girlfriends. The next time I go to the dentist, he’ll have a couple of cavities to fill because this is beyond sweet. Note: there are still a couple single 1D guys up for grabs.
MISS: Chris Brown wears gold fangs
After seeing pictures of this, British GQ was right to dub Brown the worst dressed celebrity. First of all, who even wears gold grills anymore? I thought all rappers got rid of those when Kanye started donning Louis Vuitton back in the early 2000s. Secondly, he’s a bit late on the Twilight vampire phase, isn’t he? (Yes, even I know Twilight vampires don’t have fangs. Gosh.)
HIT: Lucy Hale gets record deal
The Pretty Little Liars actress signed a recording contract with Hollywood Records. I know the actor-slash-musician title rarely goes over well, but I’m rooting for Hale. If you can remember, Hale competed in American Juniors, the American Idol teen spin-off. Her album is due to be released in 2013. Here’s to hoping she joins the likes of Zooey Deschanel (She and Him) and Jason Schwartzman (Coconut Records).
MISS: Lindsay Lohan to co-star with porn star in next project
Lohan had a busy week. Besides crashing her car and continuing to work on a filmatic dud, she somehow managed to pick up more work. Lohan will star in the indie thriller, The Canyons, alongside porn actor James Deen. It was probably best not to hire Lohan seeing as it’s an independent film. Delays are expensive and inevitable when it relies on her personal life. I’ll also give Deen credit for going the “classy” porn name route because his surname could’ve started with a “p.”
HIT: Carrie Underwood supports gay marriage
The country star gave her support for marriage equality in an interview with the Independent saying, “I definitely think we should all have the right to love, and love publicly, the people that we want to love.” Underwood was raised a Baptist, but now attends a more liberal church with her hockey player husband, Mike Fisher. See, religion doesn’t always have to be on the bad side when it comes to the controversial marriage debate. Equality for all!
MISS: Kanye West was burglarized
Police sources told TMZ that a break in was reported at West’s home in Los Angeles early Wednesday morning. While nothing significant has been reported stolen, police will have to wait until West returns from touring to confirm that none of his possessions have gone missing. If this was a desperate attempt to get a pair of Air Yeezys II, the fiend probably didn’t check Kim Kardashian’s Twitter. Kim tweeted a photo of the couple wearing the exclusive kicks with the caption “His & Hers.”
