Liza Minnelli to Appear in Sex and the City Movie


Amazing: Liza Minnelli is covering Beyoncé’s “Single Ladies” for a wedding scene in the Sex and the City sequel.

Lauren Conrad thinks her acting abilities are “offensive” and finds memorizing lines to be far too much of a challenge. Adrian Grenier tried renting a bicycle to take him to the Gareth Pugh fashion show in Paris, but then had someone drive him there instead. Kanye West and Lady Gaga’s “Fame Kills” tour has been canceled, with no explanation, but Gaga will still be launching her own, Kanye-less tour. Jay-Z and Alicia Keys shot a music video at the Empire State Building. Kristen Stewart finds all her Twilight fame to be “annoying.” So is making out repeatedly with Robert Pattinson, we’re sure. Michael Moore is promoting his anti–Wall Street movie, Capitalism: A Love Story, by giving free tickets to unions. Meanwhile he used all non-union stagehands during filming.

TLC has suspended filming the newly dubbed Kate Plus 8 because Jon Gosselin said the crew was no longer welcome in his home (despite the fact that he no longer lives there), and that the network never obtained proper work permits for his children. During a recent Joe’s Pub performance, comedian Billy Eichner dished, in graphic detail, about his one-night stand with Frank Bruni. Padma Lakshmi has a bun in her oven. Audiences have been leaving Peter Sellars’s production of Othello, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, at intermission, causing Sellars to come onstage and encourage the few remaining theatergoers to fill the empty seats in front. Media bigwig Terry Semel lost out on buying the Nets to six-foot-seven Russian billionaire Mikhail Prokhorov.

The ads for Lindsay Lohan’s line of ripped leggings feature photos of her clinging to a stripper pole. Chace Crawford swaggered to the Gossip Girl set in a suit yesterday. Quentin Tarantino plans to make Kill Bill 3. And Britney Spears likes to travel under the alias “Ms. Alotta Warmheart.”
