Uh-Oh, Halle Berry's Condition Unknown After On-Set Head Injury

Halle Berry was rushed to the hospital last night after she slipped and hit her head on concrete while shooting upcoming movie The Hive in Los Angeles, co-starring Abigail Breslin. She was taken to Cedars-Sinai around 10 PM and her condition "remains unclear."

It appears that Berry's a magnet for on-set accidents—last year she broke her foot filming Cloud Atlas, suffered an eye injury during Die Another Day in 2002, broke her arm filming Gothika in 2003 and was hospitalized for being hit in the head with a lighting prop during the making of Catwoman.

Ahhhhhh! Sasha Obama, Malia Obama, and Malia's "very, very funny" friend (who's gonna have a killer stand-up bit about this time in her life someday) went to The Strand, you guys! Flanked by Secret Service and their aunt Maya Soetoro-Ng (President Barack Obama's half-sister), the girls picked some YA novels Imaginary Girls and Before I Fall as well as Albert Camus' Exile And The Kingdom and a few souvenirs. A Strand employee says they were "very polite." Why he didn't steer them towards Sideways Stories From Wayside School, possibly the best-ever middle-grade read, remains a mystery. [People]

While I enjoy Kathie Lee and Hoda daily, her assessment is totally wrong! I've been to California from Detroit four times this year and Florida. I go wherever I choose to go comfortably on my custom bus. Further, my audience and fans span the age of 8 to 90! And are multi-ethnic, and I am very well known to young adults, tweens and teens. Their parents play my music and I take care of my business whenever I sign on the dotted line! I'm surprised Kathie Lee did not research my worldwide celebrity audience…I could enjoy being a judge for a season or two. Let's kick it up a few notches and have a slammin', jammin' season.

Once again, Angelina Jolie is furious at Brad Pitt's right-wing mom Jane, this time for buying Brangelina's six-year-old daughter Shiloh (who famously prefers boy's clothes) "fairy costumes and princess dresses." Jolie considers it disrespectful. Wait, let's just settle this now: Does a six-year-old really give one single fuck about what they're wearing as long as it's not uncomfortable? Or is Shiloh just a pawn in these foolish games? [Us]
