Shia LaBeouf Is No Longer Famous!

Retirement has not agreed with Even Stevens star Shia LaBeouf, who announced his exit from the world of arts and culture only two weeks ago due to completely valid and well-grounded criticism of his plagiarism and general skulduggery what he perceived to be vicious attacks on his artistic integrity. LaBeouf will soon start work on the new indie comedy Rock The Casbah which also stars Bill Murray, Kate Hudson, and Zooey Deschanel. (Quick question: can we still consider it an indie comedy with so many A-listers up in there? Does the fact that Deschanel is in it automatically make it indie?) LaBeouf seems to be taking the whole "indie cred" thing fairly seriously, though, because he's taken to his twitter to announce that he is "NO LONGER FAMOUS" in all-caps thirteen times in the past three days. At least it's his own work.

While LaBeouf is busy conducting performance art, I put on my journalism hat and got a ground-breaking interview (twitter, I used twitter) with Christy Carlson Romano, the woman who played his older sister on television for 66 glorious episodes. Romano is not shocked that Labeouf has come out of retirement. She does think, however, that "he's over twitter." [HollyWood Reporter]


Shia LaBeouf Is No Longer Famous!

Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke are no longer friends, according to insiders. Allegedly Thicke is angry at Cyrus because her career took off after the VMAs and she's angry at him because he didn't defend her after their performance. The wafer-thin proof of this feud is that the duo who once shared a stage, a foam finger, and a Beetlejuice costume did not rush to speak to each other during the Grammys. PREPARE FOR A WAR, HOLLYWOOD! [Us]


  • Taylor Swift went bowling with friends and ended up chatting with Green Bay Packer Aaron Rodgers. Please expect Swift's new album to drop next week. Tentative title: Our Love Was A Super Bowl. (It works on several levels.) [She Knows]
  • Katy Perry is the first person to reach 50 million Twitter followers. What a time to be alive! [Mashable]
  • Guy Fieri is going to take your Keurig to FlavorTown. Population: Your blown mind minus $13. [Grub Street]
  • Demi Lovato and Wilmer Vaderrama may be engaged. [Hollywood Life]
  • John Stamos and Lori Loughlin don't have sex; Bob Saget claims he was there when Alanis Morissette called Dave Coulier in the middle of dinner. Someone make this Full House reunion happen quick because I have some questions! (Mostly for Jodie Sweetin.) [E!]
  • What's inside Emma Roberts' purse? A jump rope, something called Neutrogena Pink Grapefruit Wipes, and the still-beating heart of the fallen supreme. Just kidding, it's a paperback copy of The Shining. [Us]
  • Jill Zarin has, predictably, made Ramona Singer's divorce all about herself by posting a not-so-cryptic tweet accusing Singer's husband of spousal abuse. It's great that Jill knows that the best way to deal with alleged domestic violence is to tweet about it for one's own gain. I never thought I'd say it, but #teamramona. [zap2it]
  • Kim Zolciak reveals that she's lost her baby weight with cardio and diet pills. I was hoping she'd say she ate pizza under that laser machine from two seasons ago because I would have gone out and gotten one immediately. Instead, I just bought a pizza. [E!]
  • Harry Styles is not quitting One Direction because he's not ready for the swift and painful fall into obscurity just yet! [Hollywood Life]
  • Owen Wilson has welcomed a second child, his first with Caroline Lindqvist. [People]
  • Julie Chen is going back to using the name Julie Chen. This has been a TMZ exclusive. [TMZ]
  • Lindsay Lohan and Paris Hilton avoided each other at a party. This is drama because there was no drama. It's meta! [Perez Hilton]
  • Speaking of Lohan, the producers of her latest film may have been cocaine traffickers in the past. [The Superficial]
  • Lana Del Rey may be secretly engaged. Congratulations, Lana! I hope your love lasts even when the both of you are no longer young and beautiful. [Glamour]
  • One of the bros from Ghost Adventures bought a haunted house so that he can scream at spirits in the comfort and privacy of his own home. [Reality World]
  • Khloe Kardashian bought a ceramic cat for her home. Kourtney Kardashian was not impressed, which is fair because that cat isn't even a Color-Me-Mine. (Kourtney actually looks like I did when I went to a Color Me Mine and then found out you don't get to take your ceramic creation home the same day, which is SOME BULLSHIT because I had plans for that bus-shaped cookie jar.) [E!]
  • Goodbye, Myrtle and Queenie; Hello, weekend!
