Blind Item: Be Careful What Makes You Famous

Jeez, is anyone in Hollyweird not hiding in the closet? Here’s another Blind Item for the cynical few.

Gosh, last time we checked in on Seymour Plow-Me-More, he had not a care in the world—other than how to nab his latest gay conquest.

Gotta admit, I’ve always liked that about Seymour—he’s like a little kid. He just wants his boy-toys, lots of cookies, his home life with the fake wife and his career…in that order. He’s never really pretended otherwise, unlike so many other grasping, closeted gay stars in this town.

Until now. (more…)

Elton John & Lady Gaga to collaborate at Grammy’s

Are Elton John and Lady Gaga performing together at the 52nd annual Grammy Awards this Sunday?

According to reports, the Rocket Man is set to take to the stage with the Bad Romance star at the prestigious ceremony which takes place at Los Angeles’ Staples Center on Monday.

It is not yet known what track the pair might perform, but given their flamboyant stage shows it is expected to be spectacular, a source for Contactmusic said: “Elton and Lady Gaga on the same stage is sure to create fireworks, it could be one of the most memorable Grammy performances of all time.”

The 62-year-old, singer is no stranger to show-stopping Grammy performances. In 2001, he famously joined Eminem for a version of the rapper’s hit Stan, amid controversy as the hip-hop star was widely regarded as homophobic at the time due to the lyrics of many of his tracks.

Other artists performing at the ceremony include Pink, Beyoncé Knowles, Blacked Eyed Peas and Taylor Swift.

Beyoncé heads up the list of nominations after being put forward for 10 honours, while Taylor Swift has eight, followed by Black Eyed Peas on six.

We don’t doubt Gaga will pick up a few style tips from the original ostentatious dresser.

K-Fed: Depression made me fat

Melancholy made him eat all the pies.

Kevin Federline has blamed his 2006 divorce from Britney Spears as a trigger for his dramatic weight gain.

The 31-year-old, former dancer opened up to Access Hollywood about his battle with depression, over-eating and famous ex-wife: “Once you get depressed, you don’t really feel like doing anything. You’re kind of discouraged about yourself and then the weight gain too, or that makes me more depressed. … I mean, it’s a combination of all of those things.

“Everybody knows what happened with me and Brit. I’m not going to say that’s the total cause of it but, I mean, just not being happy with myself was probably the main part of my depression.”

But the wannabe rapper, who is set to appear on VH1’s Celebrity Fit Club: Boot Camp in February, has worked hard to shed the pounds, regaining his confidence in the process, he added: “I think as time goes on, it keeps getting better and better and better. I mean, I’m really happy the way that my life is going right now, I really am. I think, you know, I have come a long way.”

So does this mean we can’t call him K-Fat, K-Overfed, the artist formerly known as K-Fat or beached whale, anymore?

Blind Item: Cockpit Rockin’ With Boys and Paranoia

Another Blind Item folks, get your thinking caps on.

Courtesy of Ted Casablanca:

We haven’t heard much about Fey Oiled-Tush since he dripped (not enough) jewels all over Hollywood’s leading vamp movie star. So thought you all might like to know what the closeted big-time celeb’s been up to—besides getting it on with gorgeous young men up in his private plane, that is.

He’s getting very nervous.

And no, not just because Fey’s worried his myriad boy-lovers will squeal on him—they all have to sign confidentiality agreements, mind you—but because of Oiled-Tush’s pilot. Yep, the guy who’s seen it all, and how, is super pissed off…Can you guess why?

Gerard Butler tongues street performer…

… and I don’t mean Jennifer Aniston – she’s a different kind of performer.

Gerard Butler, 40, was snapped exchanging numbers and saliva with a violinist he met only minutes earlier, while out and about in Venice, California on Sunday.

His fauxmance with Jennifer Aniston seemed to have slipped the actors mind – the pair were thought to have ignited their ‘relationship’ after they were seen reportedly canoodling at the Golden Globes.

Just shocking. It’s almost as if the The Bounty Hunter co-stars were putting it all on for the cameras.

Kanye West not banned from Haiti telethon

Moral of this story, never upset a Disney tween.

Rumour has it, Kanye West has been barred from taking part in George Clooney’s televised telethon – Hope for Haiti: A Global Benefit for Earthquake Relief, this Friday.

According to PopEater, the rappers outspoken nature is the reason for the snub. During a televised goodwill event for Hurricane Katrina victims in 2005, West ranted that “George Bush doesn’t care about black people,” and at the 2009 MTV VMAs, the 32-year-old, surprisingly stormed the stage to interrupt Taylor Swift as she was accepting an award, reducing the starlet to tears.

A source for the gossip site said: “After what he said on the Katrina telethon and the way he behaved at the MTV Video Music Awards, everyone agrees it’s just best that he does not participate. Kayne has to make everything about himself. He will do anything to steal the spotlight and, well, this night it’s just not about him.”

But a rep for MTV quashed whispers that the Love Lockdown singer is banned from the show: “That’s absolutely not true. We did reach out to Kanye.”

A cavalcade of stars are confirmed to be participating on Friday night’s telethon for Haiti’s earthquake victims, including Madonna, Jay-Z, Brad Pitt, Chris Rock, Leonardo DiCaprio, Denzel Washington, Halle Berry, Will Smith, Muhammad Ali and Robert Pattinson.

Barred or not, if Kanye was to make an appearance, we imagine it would go a little something like this…”Haiti i’m really happy for you, and i’ma let you finish, but I was the biggest disaster of 2009 of all time.”

OK, I know what your thinking… that meme was a fail. My reply to that… *Kanye shrug*

Big Brother’s Chanelle Hayes is pregnant

Former Big Brother housemate Chanelle Hayes is expecting her first child with Middlesbrough footballer Matthew Bates.

The 22-year-old, who appeared on the show in 2007, told pals she was “delighted” after having her 12-week scan.

It comes just five months after the she was hospitalised for attempting suicide following a blazing row with Bates, 23.

Reality star, Chanelle was found unconscious on the floor of her Wakefield home, after overdosing on sleeping tablets, paracetamols and four bottles of wine. She later explained: “I thought: ‘I can’t make Matt happy, I can’t make anyone happy, I can’t do anything right, I can’t even make my stupid self happy, so it’d be much easier for everyone if I’m not here’.”

The pair have since patched up their differences, a friend of the couple said: “The dark days are behind now, and Chanelle is absolutely thrilled. Matthew’s over the moon too.”

Chanelle first found fame in Big Brother 8 following an on-screen romance with fellow housemate, former boy band singer Ziggy Lichman. The couple soon split after leaving the house and the self-styled Victoria Beckham look-alike quickly established herself as a glamour model.

In May 2008, she attempted a pop career with her début single I Want It, which reached a dismal no. 63 in the charts. That same year, she also released a perfume called Mwah.

Does anyone care about this nobody? No? Didn’t think so…

Zac Efron & Vanessa Hudgens play house

Zac Efron and Vanessa Hudgens are reportedly house-hunting.

The High School Musical stars, who have been dating since 2006, are set on living together when Hudgens returns from filming her latest film Sucker Punch in Canada.

According to In Style, a source close to the pair said: “When Vanessa was apart from Zac while filming her upcoming movies Beastly and Sucker Punch, she realised how much she missed him and loved being around him all the time.

“When she got back to LA, she told him she wanted them to move in together.”

Yeah. It’s a slow news day.
