Maybe it’s just a ruse for attention but Taylor Momsen sure has our attention. The singer made waves earlier this month in an interview with Elle Magazine in which she announced her retirement from acting. “I quit acting, actually. I quit Gossip Girl and now tour and am in a band and that’s pretty much all I want to do. Hopefully I’ll be able to only do that for the rest of my life.”
The 18-year old from St. Louis previously portrayed Jenny Humphrey on the hit CW series Gossip Girl, and also appeared as Cindy Lou Wu in How the Grinch Stole Christmas. Her band The Pretty Reckless signed withMore >
Gene Simmons will no longer be performing at the Michael Jackson tribute concert set for October after the promoters pulled the plug on KISS hard.
The rocker, who accused Michael of being a pedophile, has been dropped from the roster just one day after it was announced Gene would perform.
Just last year, the rocker said he was child molester, in no uncertain terms: “There is no question in my mind he molested those kids. Not a doubt.”
The promoters now tell TMZ, “We have listened to the fans and are grateful to have been alerted to these unfortunate statements by Gene Simmons.”
Kate Gosselin is surely CRUSHED that Kate Plus 8 got canceled and her 15 minutes seem to be winding down, but there’s one thing she does NOT miss.
That thing is Jon Gosselin.
“I know that I’m glad to be divorced and on my own,” she says, addressing her ex in a clip from one of the show’s final episodes, airing Monday.
“I wouldn’t change my marriage. I have eight awesome kids that I would not change,” Kate adds. “But people certainly can change and if they’re not who you thought they were and if they’re not for you, you move on. And I have.”
She has no problem seeing Jon move on. Or not.More >

Either Soulja Boy is the biggest idiot of all time, or a lot smarter than people think because he even had this much to burn. Either way … wow.
The rapper is dropping $55 MILLION on a PIMP ASS private jet, a member of Soulja’s management confirms. It’s a 21st birthday gift to himself.
The plane alone cost $35 million, but Soulja Boy cranked out another $20 million to pimp dat ride with all sorts of cool stuff. Gotta fly in style.
Also a waste of money? NHL merchandise.
Happy birthday to the hip-hopper in any case. Hope he’s got a good finance guy.

Stunning news out of Italy: Snooki and Jionni LaValle have broken up.
Hard to believe, we know … the Jersey Shore star is the beacon of relationship stability. In all seriousness, this did come as something of a surprise, as Snooki’s boyfriend recently paid a visit to the set of the MTV show last week.
Snooki and Jionni were photographed on the streets of Italy hugging and kissing as recently as June 3 … but an insider now says that now it’s over.
“They broke up,” an insider says, adding that Jionni’s time visiting Snooki and the Jersey Shore cast quickly went sour. “[He] came homeMore >
Lady Gaga visited Paris in typical Lady Gaga fashion.
Hanging out of the backseat (and out of the roof) of the car she was being driven in, the pop superstar waved and blew kisses to her French fans.
The blue-haired reprised her recent wig (and kimono-esque get-up) as she rolled through town, looking like she belongs in the Louvre herself.
It’s been a whirlwind few weeks for Lady Gaga, with no end in sight, as she’s been busy promoting her smash hit new album, Born This Way.
With her hit songs and outrageous fashion sense, she arrived in Paris on Monday after spending the weekend atMore >
Jennifer Lawrence and Josh Hutcherson, meet your mentor.
Veteran actor and Oscar nominee Woody Harrelson has landed the vital role of Haymitch Abernathy in The Hunger Games. As fans of the book series know, this character is key to the trilogy, serving as the teacher for Katniss and Peeta inside the Capitol arena during its fatally entertaining event.
The champion of the 50th Hunger Games, Haymitch is a drunk who has a love/hate relationship with Lawrence’s Katniss. John C. Reilly was initially rumored for the role, but anyone who saw Kingpin has no doubt about Harrelson’s ability to actMore >
Former half-term governor and current famous person Sarah Palin slammed Michelle Obama on Twitter today for inviting Common to the White House.
Her beef? Palin and some others aren’t thrilled that the rapper and actor promotes healthy diets once rhymed about burning President George W. Bush.
“Oh lovely, White House,” tweeted the ex-veep hopeful, making sarcastic reference to a story on Common and Michelle Obama in the Daily Caller.
The conservative website resurrected a Common aimed at Dubya by transcribing lyrics from a 2007 YouTube video of a past performance of “Letter to theMore >
Lady Gaga is preparing to release a new single called “Hair.”
The May 16 release date is just one week before her new album comes out in full, and will be the fourth track from Born This Way released ahead of time.
Usually, when an artist is gearing up for the release of their album they’ll offer up two singles, one months before it drops, and one just before the album.
Obviously, Lady Gaga is unconventional. We’ve heard the title track, the promo single “Edge of Glory” days later, and most recently, “Judas.”
“Born This Way” spent more than a month at No. 1 on theMore >
It’s official: Charlie Sheen and Snoop Dogg are “Winning.”
With the assistance of producer Rob Patterson, the duo has released much-anticipated duet, with Carmen Electra, Patterson’s fiancee, opening the single by saying: “Oh, good evening Mr. Sheen, are you winning?”

An arrangement of the track is being cut specifically for sporting events, asMore >
The stars of MTV’s Teen Mom are basically a case study in why people should think before becoming parents. It’s not all it’s cracked up to be, is it?
At the very least, there are pitfalls as well as joys. Most of the ladies know this all too well, with family feuds and even arrest records to prove it.
But through it all, they do their best. Well, mostly. Jenelle is a mess.
So, THG ponders, which Teen Mom star is actually the BEST mom, fighting through adversity and shining bright? Let’s break down the candidates:
