britpoppa's gone on sabbatical. get your gossip from us at the bosh.

Wednesday, May 18, 2005

we have to hand it to you guys. you managed to name nearly every skinny starlet under the sun in britpoppa's semi-weekly celebrity guessing game. one of you even guessed yourself (good one). but a number of you called mischa barton, way to go. sometimes her disproportionately large - though quite sexy - hips and bum, throw us off and we forget that the rest of her is stick thin.

a couple of savvy livejournal britpoppa fans did some deductive reasoning to land at the right gal. "Nicole Ritchie is my guess! There aren't any freckles, so it cannot be Lohan," one said. to which the other responded, "Not Ritchie since she's got tattoo's on her back too." "Oh, then I'd opt for Mischa Barton in that case," said the first. it looks like we have some junior detectives in our midst. watch out, carmen sandiego.

wrong guesses: keira knightley, lindsay lohan, katie holmes, selma blair, nicole richie, jessica simpson, leathernad
we spy a cheap trick fan. renee zellweger (in her first photo since getting hitched) proves that no matter how skinny you are, you can still have a double chin.

liv tyler and milo are so sweet. there's nothing better than a cute baby.

lindsay lohan has been heinously co-opting the boho style of sienna miller since she went blonde. and she's not the only one. check out jessica simpson's blatant theft here.

what's up with jennifer garner? is she like the most boring celebrity in the world or what? we know, we should find her strong-hearted resolve to stay normal in the midst of hollywood duplicity charming, but it just annoys us. throw on proenza schouler instead of the patagonia once in a while.

britpoppa needs a refresher. we're getting stale. and we're just one of many these days. we know it's asking a lot to get some reader feedback in the age of undying apathy, but we could use your comments. what could we do to make britpoppa more fun? what do you like about us? what does britpoppa do that makes you groan? why do you come to us when trent, perez and dana are on the scene? any suggestions you could provide would be greatly appreciated. we're feeling jaded and britpoppa may be on its last legs if we don't do something soon. we apologise for our earnestness. thanks.

in these days of the shrinking starlet, it's no surprise to see actresses copying mary-kate olsen's physique as well as her fashion sense. so which celeb's bony back is this? post your guesses in the comments section and come back wednesday for the answer.
jennifer garner's finally showing off the rock that ben affleck bought her for their shotgun wedding. is that thing cushion cut? eww, gag me with a fork.

jake gyllenhaal's been sowing his oats all over town. first he was filling up maria with his grace, then he went all "sex and the city" and became a modelizer with daria werbowy, and now he's sticking it to little miss stick thin herself, lindsay lohan. looks like someone's trying to dodge those recent gay rumors.

we have to admit, natalie portman looked pretty cute with her shaved head at cannes the other day. but we can't say we enjoy it as much as she seems to.

yea! arrested development is coming back. we don't know what we'd do without gob.

since full throttle didn't wow 'em at the box office, we now present charlie's latest angels. all brittany murphy needs is her own mtv reality show.

dave chappelle explains his mental breakdown.

the paparazzi are claiming that gwen stefani is pregnant. yup, that stomach is certainly bulging. if gwen's not pregnant, she must be on the kirstie alley diet.

everyone should lay off prince harry for that nazi incident. he was just imitating elvis.

we wonder if tom cruise knows about katie holmes's fugtacular feet. things are getting pretty "serious" between them. she's met his kids; he's meeting her parents. while we're certainly wary about this couple's credibility, if the cruise connection helped knock sienna miller off factory girl, we're all for it.

Thursday, May 12, 2005

we're so stoked: bitchy mcbitcherson was relieved from her role as edie sedgwick in factory girl. she never deserved that part anyway. again, we plea: kirsten, please!
world's easiest blind item (via popbitch):
Which colourful US female popstar has a secret lesbian love in London? Whenever she's in town, the star likes to get the party started with her record company lover. Both girls have a thing about bikers: the popstar dates them, while the SonyBMG girl has a copy of Hard Dykes On Bykes on her laptop.

britpoppa congratulates renee zellweger for finally finding the cowboy of her dreams. eat your hearts out, jim, jack and damien.

Thursday, May 05, 2005

most of you who braved britpoppa's semi-weekly celebrity guessing game managed to name the faux farrah correctly, parker posey. could it be that our hint as to her bad hair day history made the game too simple? we couldn't resist a jab at the mop top she sported for the broadway revival of hurlyburly, though. or maybe it was the top she wore in this picture. parker's quite fond of it - she also wore it on an outing with olympia dukakis in 2003. at least one of you didn't know who she was. that person guessed juliette lewis. maybe next time.

Wednesday, May 04, 2005

divine justice has intervened and punished katie holmes for the crime of relationship fraud. guess tom cruise has a pretty monster case of herpes.

and speaking of publicity stunts, oprah is a bitch for pulling this lame-ass one - and so's her daughter.

justin timberlake's having surgery on his vocal chords next week. good thing there's no honeymoon to ruin.

angelina jolie and brad pitt are having better sex than you are. well, we guess they are. i mean, you could be having great sex, i suppose. hopefully you are.

we all know colin farrell is a horndog, but sex with a 70-year-old woman? that's just obscene.

britney's gone from brunette to blonde and from frapuccinos to iced tea. that better be caffeine-free, missy.

robbie williams has been rumored to have have dated both kelly and aimee osbourne. but he's only had phone sex with sharon.

some matches made in skank heaven: tara reid and tommy lee, jessica simpson and fred durst

mary-kate olsen has inadvertently revealed her secret to staying so thin (you know, besides the not eating thing) - she's a smoker. her 8-year-old fans better not hear about this. their little innocent hearts will be broken.

jessica simpson and lindsay lohan are duking it out. not in the battle for sex with johnny knoxville (they both won that one), but in the battle for worst dressed of the week. will it go to the cut-offs or the leggings?

Tuesday, May 03, 2005

ashlee simpson has a new hairdo. or is that lisa kudrow? what do you think of her metamorphosis?
not much news today. the biggest story is that this picture of jennifer garner has everyone and their mom suspecting that a pregnancy is the reason that ben affleck recently asked her to be his bride.

we saw house of wax last night. despite our initial skepticism, we decided it was pretty rad. i mean, dean wouldn't make a bad movie, now would he? *spoiler* he definitely has the coolest death.

someone better put kelly osbourne on xanax before she loses her shit in the wrong place at the wrong time (4th item).

christina ricci loved working on the horror movie, cursed so much that she's decided to masquerade as a zombie in real life. i'm sorry, but no one should look that dead without makeup on at only 25. get some sleep, girl.

the british press really wants to insinuate that angelina jolie is an incestual pedophile. guess targeting michael jackson just got too boring.

tomkat: celibate, but kinky

gwyneth paltrow teaches little apple how to swim. we'd make some mean comment, but this picture is just too adorable.

add this to the list of biggest conspiracies after the false moon landing: oprah and steadman's secret love child.

mary-kate olsen has decided to take on a summer internship as a garbage man. either that or she's been raiding the jumpsuit section of chloe sevigny's closet. that girl has one big collection of jumpsuits.

Monday, May 02, 2005

this gal's current farrah 'do isn't the only bad hair day she's had lately. she recently sported one of the ugliest hairstyles we've ever seen for a role on the stage. do you know who she is? bonus points if you can a) name the reason for her past awful hairdo and, b) link to a photo of it.
kelly osbourne in wonderland? while the bow isn't too offensive, we think she's taken her love of cartoons a little too far.

cameron diaz and justin timberlake may marry at the posh hotel du cap in france this weekend. they've booked every room in the cannes attendee favorite. and they'll be joined soon onscreen as well. jt's taken a part in shrek 3.

sometimes blind items (from page six and ny daily news) are obvious:
  • WHICH newly married actor isn't so faithful? Before he walked down the aisle with his lovely actress wife, he walked into a bedroom and got nasty with a hard-partying Hollywood starlet whom many know intimately (chad michael murray and paris hilton)
  • Which soulful young pop star is dealing with a nasty blackmail situation on account of her secret same-sex proclivities? (alicia keys)

    sometimes they're not (can you guess who they are?):
  • Which squeaky-clean Hollywood actor trawls the East Village for punk girls to hook up with? "The skankier the better," says a witness.
  • WHICH diminutive rock star isn't so faithful to his lovely wife? While she keeps the home fires burning, he's out being bad with an exotic woman
  • WHICH skirt-chasing actor has been two-timing not only his wife, but the sexy blond superstar that he's been cheating with? The horndog was spotted making out with a lithe young lovely in front of the Mercer Hotel before checking into a suite for more naughtiness.

    johnny knoxville, jackass with an interest in modern literature? in his sweatband-adorned hand, he totes ian mcewan's bestseller, atonement. hmmm.

    we always thought scarlett johansson and vanity fair were as perfectly matched as catherine zeta-jones and michael douglas - she's the willing ingenue to their dirty old man. guess we were wrong.

    are hilary duff and joel madden openly dating now? can anyone clear this up for us? we've been seeing more and more pictures of them together and being more affectionate and now hil's mom is commenting on their relationship?!? she's still underage, right?

    have britney spears's breasts gotten enormous in the last few days or is it just us? we think she should take advantage of those boobs and this time before her bump - it's a boy - really starts showing and become the next dolly parton.

    proof sienna miller is with jude law for the right reasons. don't cry: it's just a ring, babe. or is it a symbol of more bad luck to come?

    rebecca loos is history. the newest lady on the other end of beckham's text messages is pouty vixen esther canadas.

    in case you weren't at the spider club this past weekend, you missed avril lavigne getting totally smashed. of course, this isn't exactly news anymore, is it? now ashley olsen getting crazy drunk - that's another story.

    as justin timberlake so eloquently illustrates with his trucker cap, "work sucks." you may have noticed that britpoppa's been rather sparse in the updates department. that's because our 9 to 5 is kicking our ass right now. expect things to be rather sporadic until may 16. then we'll be back and badder than ever.

    Thursday, April 21, 2005

    in honor of star magazine's 83rd beach bodies issue, here's a beach body we wouldn't mind having: natalie portman's.

    there's just too much news and too much work so here's the run down:
  • scarlett johansson is stealing josh hartnett away from katie holmes. please lord, let there be a catfight.
  • katherine moennig has just as much game in real life as she does on "the l word". no surprise though, she is gwyneth's cousin.
  • spring is in the air: paris hilton's feeling maternal. she should probably just buy another chihuahua.
  • justin timberlake is clearly batshit insane.
  • life imitates art: keanu reeves is doing diane keaton.
  • also pregnant: benjamin bratt's wife, talisa soto. not that anyone gives a rat's ass about benjamin bratt.

    gwen stefani models a hoodie with the lyrics form her new hit, "hollaback girl". what's really bananas is that rastafarian hat she has on.

    and back to the dish:
  • the hanson clan expands again. looks like 22-year-old taylor's as potent as k. feds's.
  • lindsay's boobs are the only thing enhanced on her body, she loves her new collagen lips.
  • liz hurley's son will definitely get beat up.
  • hmm, maybe britney and lynne aren't as close as they seem. why else would she be getting pregnancy advice from madonna instead of mom?
  • why not ruin tonight's episode of "the oc" a little?
  • why can't these two billionaires get back together? it's so sad.

    lindsay's a blonde. doesn't she look awful? this is no way to win back wilmer, girl.
  • sure, he pioneered the trucker hat look in hollywood, but the majority of you who pitted the hipster as ashton kutcher in britpoppa's semi-weekly celebrity guessing game forgot one thing: this guy was missing the red string bracelet. nope, our german shepherd-loving hunk was none other than newly-married chad michael murray. hate to tell you, but some of you did get punk'd.

    wrong guesses: kelso, hayden christensen, paulo costanzo and eric estrada.

    Tuesday, April 19, 2005

    salma's got jungle fever. jamie's got jungle fever. they've got jungle fever. they're in love. that is if she's gotten over penelope.

    breaking news: lindsay lohan's gone blonde!

    everyone's getting married!
  • chad and sophia
  • rob and amber
  • jennifer and ben
  • demi and ashton

    britney, now that the world knows you're pregnant, it's really time to lay off the herb. sure it helps with the morning sickness, but your kid's going to need all the help she can get in the brains department with cletus as a father.

    everyone's having babies!
  • nancy kerrigan
  • michelle williams
  • jamelia

    or just getting fat!
  • leonardo dicaprio

    looks like 17-year-old hilary duff is finally making her illegal relationship with 26-year-old joel madden public. hey hil, since you and haylie like to share everything, why don't you hook her up with benji? he's a total stud.

    everyone's getting arrested!
  • chris tucker
  • natasha lyonne (well not quite yet)
  • johnny cash

    keira knightley and her model boyfriend jamie dornan have developed a new sport, synchronized cell phone usage. try it with your mate today!
  • free cone day! it's been super busy at work lately so we may or may not get to do an actual post today. in the meantime, tide yourself over with some free ice cream at ben and jerry's. and read about our undying love for free cone day. (p.s. next monday score free ice cream cake at cold stone creamery.)

    Monday, April 18, 2005

    britpoppa's not feeling particularly "bloggy" today (blame it on "the mondays"), so you'll just have to settle for a "spot the hipster" version of the semi-weekly celebrity guessing game. so just who is this fella who has a thing for canada and german shepherds?

    Friday, April 15, 2005

    kate moss, while normally the epitome of model-y style, is inexplicably rockin out in these skin tight white jeans and keds. we are dumbfounded.

    forget "revelations", the next "surreal life" will be the greatest story ever told.

    gwyneth paltrow may look perfect, but she has problems too. ever since she gave birth to her little apple, she's had trouble remembering her lines. good thing there's no dialogue involved in modeling jewelry.

    it's the final count down - until the wedding singer is comes to broadway. mark your calendars for april 2006. this is sure to be one to remember.

    jessica simpson, who five days earlier looked nicole richie skinny, was back to her hippy, hourglass look of the late '90s the other night. guess she never read any of those articles on how to dress 10 pounds lighter.

    garden gnomes are having the best week ever.

    cameron diaz? more like cameron diva. though her new mtv show, "trippin'" makes her look like the definition of a no-fuss free spirit, it takes a lot of work to look so care-free. she's charged the network for her hair extensions and acne treatments. like she can't afford it.

    nic cage's wife is sure going for that stereotypical submissive asian wife thing, isn't she? well, we can't really blame her since it got her out of that job as a sushi waitress. we'd do far more drastic things to get out of our 9 to 5.

    did jude law and sienna miller secretly get married? nope, probably not.

    if "power girls" had you at all swayed into believing that lizzie grubman is just a nice girl, this will change your mind. that is, if you forgot about that whole running people down in the hamptons incident.

    britney spears swoons over kevin federline's first fashion magazine cover, despite the fact that that l'uomo vogue photoshoot boasts one of the most heinous uses of cornrows ever. this couple is quite the contradiction, while they can afford a new home in las vegas (to be closer to vanessa?) and an infiniti, they just can't scrounge up enough change for some ice cream.

    Thursday, April 14, 2005

    scarlett johansson is still having some skin problems. nice to know that the gorgeous girl with the sexy voice has a bit of monet in her. and speaking of clueless... (via pink is the new blog).

    brittany murphy loves to give it away. first she's kissing homeless men and now she's posing for our "american bravehearts". let's make her the next pope. and to kill two birds with one stone, let's nominate j.lo for sainthood.

    lindsay lohan's been stalking her ex, wilmer valderrama, prompting him to get a bodyguard. this dude must be a pretty big pansy if he's scared of a 86-pound 18-year-old. guess he doesn't have to stretch much to play fez after all.

    we never really bought in to chris klein's appeal. and we certainly questioned how he managed to bag a babe like katie holmes. but now that we've seen his mugshot from the dui he was charged with 2 months ago, we understand. guess we just like bad boys (via defamer).

    this dude from interpol must live under a goddamn rock. either that or he's just a fucking asshole. oh yeah, probably the second one.

    someone call "nanny 911". there's a naughty little celebrity child running around england giving out the finger.

    go ahead, brit. scarf down that ice cream. and next time, get a double scoop. it's cool now, you're eating for two, babe. but stay away from the ciggies, okay? and while we're at it, is it a girl bun in your oven or not?

    fred durst is shopping around his own reality show. we wonder if he knows that the only people who would watch it are of those of the "stare at a car crash" mentality.

    jay mccarroll update: he's pissing off the press, badmouthing other designers and getting super drunk. jay's clearly destined for the upper echelons of the fashion world. yay!

    thanks to golden fiddle for breaking the news that jessica alba had gotten a hair cut. like chris klein, we never really went for jessica before. this kirsten dunst pixie thing made us so excited we peed a little, though.

    Wednesday, April 13, 2005

    you guys are too good. we thought maybe the fact that tori spelling hasn't done anything notable in the last five years (or let's face it, ever - unless you count co-ed call girl, which we do) would render her nearly unrecognizable. boy were we wrong. you'd recognize those Ts her daddy bought for her anywhere.

    wrong guesses: kelly preston, sarah michelle gellar, heidi klum.
