Last night at Clive Davis’s pre-Grammy party, Black Eyed Pea Will.I.Am rapped, “There ain’t no Tower Records, ain’t no Sam Goody, but I don’t give a [bleep]. We gonna keep making music.” Barbra Streisand also showed up at the party, which took attention away from Rihanna (whose altercation with Chris Brown occurred after Davis’s party last year) and fueled rumors that she’s planning a pop-music comeback. Members of the cast of Jersey Shore also represented at last night’s awards: The Situation flashed his Situation to the cameras, while Snooki went without her trademark pouf. (We hope it was a one-time thing. That pouf is where she keeps her mystique!) Check out Vulture’s copious Grammys coverage here.
Apparently, Russell Brand asked Ryan Seacrest to officiate his marriage to Katy Perry, which is horrifying. Meanwhile, Rob Schneider seems to have gotten married last night, but his rep denies it. Chace Crawford has been hanging out with Emma Roberts in Park City. Bar Refaeli really likes cheap underwear. Tiger’s mistress Rachel Uchitel celebrated her 35th in Palm Beach by chain smoking, drinking Champagne, and grinding into the wee hours, at which point she went home, escorted by police. Woods’s yacht, named Privacy, also made a cameo in Palm Beach. Just in time to promote When in Rome, Kristen Bell announced her engagement to co-star Dax Shepard. Charlize Theron and Stuart Townsend have called it quits after nine years, and she’s been spotted at Spago without his “commitment ring.” And New York Rangers captain Chris Drury is franchising Stamford pizzeria Colony Grill with three friends from his 1989 Little League team.
According to Deborah Ball’s new book, House of Versace, Elton John used Donatella’s daughter’s 18th birthday as an opportunity to stage an intervention, sending the cocaine-addicted designer to rehab. Dear John filmmakers changed author Nicholas Sparks’s ending at the last minute, but apparently he didn’t mind. Joan Rivers kindly noted of Jay Leno, “We all love to go to sleep to him. He’s better than an Ambien.” Padma Lakshmi won’t reveal the gender of her baby, but she’s been stocking up on pink clothing and slipped to Jimmy Fallon, “She was kicking … uh … he was kicking … I’m not saying which one … I use she and he intermittently,” which either means she’s having a girl or a rather sexually confused boy. Sting stopped into Jean Georges’s Nougatine to chat with his manager at the bar. And Liv Tyler dreams of living on a farm with chickens and a tractor.
