In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Ryan Gosling is set to direct a film which he wrote and John Mayer ends it with Katy Perry via e-mail.
HIT: Ryan Gosling to direct his own film
He can sing, he can act and now he’ll direct his own film! Titled How to Catch a Monster, the flick will be lead by his Drive co-star Christina Hendricks. She’ll presumably play Billy, the single mother of two, who with her sons gets sucked into a fantasy underworld that they must escape from. Gosling also wrote the script and it’s scheduled to start filming next spring. Perfect Gosling is just perfect.
MISS: John Mayer dumped Katy Perry over e-mail
According to US Weekly, Perry found out her short summer fling with Mayer was over via e-mail. He probably thinks he’s hot shit because he cut his hair. I wouldn’t worry too much though, Perry fans. She’ll probably use this heartbreak to write another great hit.
HIT: Nick Jonas to co-judge with Demi Lovato on the X-Factor
I know the Jonas Brothers and Demi have always been on good terms ever since she and Joe split, but it’s always nice to see it reaffirmed. The youngest Jonas musician will be joining Demi on the X-Factor as a judge. While it’s not the American Idol gig he was reportedly looking for, X-Factor will at least deliver competition experience he was looking for.

In the world of celebrity news, there’s no shortage of hits and misses. This week, Rob Kardashian isn’t going to law school after all and Joss Whedon signs deal to stay in the Marvel Universe.
HIT: Joss Whedon to stay with the Marvel Universe
Whedon just signed a contract with Marvel and Disney to direct Avengers 2 and a develop a live-action Marvel-based television series for ABC. I’m a bit apprehensive of a live-action TV series, but if anyone can do it, it’s the cult-creating phenom Whedon. Also, I may just lose it if he helps broker a deal between Sony and Disney to include Spiderman (Andrew Garfield) in the next Avengers film. Please Whedon, make it happen!
MISS: Rob Kardashian NOT going to law school
It doesn’t seem Rob will be following in his father’s footsteps after all (his real dad was O.J. Simpson’s lawyer). It was news to the University of Southern California when the Kardashian tweeted that he would be attending law school there (“Going to Law School very soon and so excited and can’t wait! School just never ends for me! #UniversityofSouthernCal#Trojans #FightOn”). Representatives from USC’s Gould School of Law said the Kardashian didn’t even apply. At least he pretended he has more ambition than selling his soul for money. We can’t say the same for his sisters!
HIT: Zooey Deschanel spotted with her new guy
The queen of all things quirky and cute (even at 32) has been spotted stealing a kiss from current beau, screenwriter Jamie Linden. While she told Marie Claire magazine she didn’t have time to date, he seems like someone you make time for. He’s pretty cute and has got to be romantic considering he did help write the screenplay for Dear John.

The Wanted are like, so popular
Ah yes. Just like The Wanted I also love spending my afternoons indulging in the slew of fan mail addressed to me. The only problem is trying to drag the heavy bag of love sonnets through my front door (#celebrityproblems). Luckily it does wonders for my biceps. [Sidenote: I don't actually get letters of praise or in fact, any letters at all. I'm merely channeling the thoughts of bandmates Tom Parker and Jay McGuiness (above) because their lives
seem are undeniably awesome.]
Conor Maynard is naked
Conor Maynard landed in Atlanta to perform for his Mayniacs and tweeted about the sweltering heatwave that struck the city. By now the Mayniacs are like “Britt, stop talking about Atlanta and weather. Dude just tweeted about “naked time” and I’m visualizing. He can have the key to my city anytime.” Yes, they ACTUALLY just said that.
Kendall Jenner is a princess
When I was Kendall Jenner’s age I spent my summers drinking rainbow Slurpees at the local amusement park and watching repeat episodes of dated sitcoms when I wasn’t working at a nameless Canadian department store. Meanwhile, 16-year-old Kendall and her sister Kylie go to photo shoots and tweet photos of themselves in glitzy princess dresses. Man, she is so relatable.

Sometimes I wonder if celebrities know that they don’t HAVE to keep the dramatics up 24/7. They do know they can stop putting on a show once the camera stopped rolling, right?
Let’s just say these celebrities know how to entertain me both on and off camera!
1) Mel Gibson
Cheesy joke time: here’s one star that puts the “mel” in melt down… The once ever so loveable hero of Lethal Weapon isn’t so loveable anymore. On a trip to Costa Rica last December, Gibson was recorded yelling at screenwriter Joe Eszterhaus. The recording starts off with Gibson yelling “Why don’t I have a first draft of “The Maccabees?” What the f**k have you been doing?” and then ends with Gibson yelling “Who wants to eat? Who the f**k wants to eat? Go have something to eat. Hurraaayyyyy!” Can you say bipolar much? Really Gibson, I remember when I was three years old and still used tantrums to get my way.
2) Chris Brown
Alright, Chris Brown doesn’t entertain me so much as he makes me gag. Not only does this star abuse woman but he now also abuses dressing rooms? Last year after he was interviewed about his relationship with Rihanna on the Today show, Chris took off his shirt stormed into his dressing room and trashed it; leaving shattered glass all over 43rd st and Broadway. You know what they say Chris if you can’t take the heat stay out of the kitchen. Read more…
Apparently there’s a widespread revolt going on between celebrities and paparazzi and it’s only inevitable that these strikes will contribute to a full war. Cameras are the weapon of choice for paparazzi while celebrities opt for fists, or just plain chasing as Rob Kardashian did this weekend.
Now, husband and wife Brian Austin Green and Megan Fox are being sued for allegedly assaulting a photographer on a Hawaiian beach last December.
Green and Fox weren’t too happy when paparazzo Delbert Shaw started snapping photos of them on the beach. They argued with the paparazzo until Green began “pummeling” him, while an apparently turned on Fox cheered from the sidelines.
Shaw says he suffered severe injuries and that Rob threw his iPhone in the ocean. But I wouldn’t be surprised if they were egged on.That revenge had to feel good on Green’s part, but was it worth it despite the lawsuit? [Source]
Rob Kardashian says he was just joking around with the paparazzi after he was handcuffed for chasing down one down this past weekend. But Rob doesn’t look like he was joking in the TMZ video, nor should he have been. In the video, the paparazzi exclaimed to cops “He tried to kill me!”
Okay, hush, it wasn’t that bad…
The paparazzi was snooping on Rob while the former “Dancing With the Stars” contestant was in a heated argument with a lady. Understandably, the guy didn’t welcome the fixed camera with open arms and say “hey, wanna get a better camera angle on this fight?” Instead, Rob took the Alpha male approach and chased the paparazzi all the way into a nearby shop where the police cuffed Rob.
On one hand, Rob makes his living off people watching his life unfold. His private and public life are seemingly indecipherable so he has to have some level of acceptance. However, the paparazzi also shouldn’t be surprised if their sleazy antics backfire.
Chasing the paparazzi wasn’t the best solution but do you think it was understandable?
Talk to some of your least favourite reality stars for $20 a minute, Kris Jenner posts a semi-nude pregnancy photo on her blog for her son’s 25th birthday and a Harry Potter star gets two years in jail.
Moms and any form of social media can be a dangerous combination. Not that most moms would ever post a semi-nude photo of themselves pregnant with you as
punishment a “birthday present.” That kind of crosses some privacy line, doesn’t it?
Rob Kardashian turned 25 today and to celebrate his mom Kris Jenner dug out and scanned some photos to share with the world on her blog. Yes, embarrassing baby photos aren’t just restricted for when a boyfriend/girlfriend meets the parents, than can be posted anytime, anywhere.
She posted it along with the caption: “Happy 25th birthday to my wonderful, handsome son, Rob!! Rob, you are the best son a mother could ask for and you make me proud every day. I love you so much!!”
Luckily, she also posted another photo which is slightly less creepy.
While his sisters’ run their D-A-S-H stores and represent some of the most high profile brands in the world, Rob Kardashian has made himself busy with socks.
On last night’s episode of Khloe & Lamar Rob went through some soul searching before landing on his new venture, which he’s very passionate about pursuing. “I love dress socks, I’m super into them. I think it kinda differentiates a man from another man in a business suit.”
Everyone wears socks, everyone needs socks. While his sister doesn’t initially approve, he eventually wins her over with his professional photo shoot and they have a moment of cheesy sibling love. Man, this plot line is almost as weak as when Kourtney became addicted to couponing and her family held an intervention.
Here’s a video montage of Rob’s life quest:
