Celeb Gossip: Top 5 Picks
1.That’s quite the switcheroo, little miss! Emma Watson is certainly making the rounds of late in terms of all things publicity. The 19-year-old university-bound star has now posed for the August issue of ELLE UK, looking very un-Hermione like. We’re totally digging the ‘tude and the tousled hair! (Daily Mail)
2. If you’re curious as to why Chris Brown didn’t put in an appearance at the BET Awards on Sunday, new enemy Jay-Z just may have the answers. Producers opted to cancel Chris‘ performance at the last second due to the negative publicity surrounding the R&B star, and apparently Jay-Z, a good friend of Rihanna‘s, didn’t mind one bit.
“Jay is a big name in the BET community, and he was very vocal about his displeasure with Chris attending the ceremony.”
Word to the wise — never cross a hip-hop mogul’s protégé! (New York Daily News)
3. Last week, word of Usher‘s impending divorce spread like wildfire, and if tongues were wagging before then this fresh tidbit will knock your bloomin’ socks off. The smooth-talking stud is demanding that a paternity test be performed on his youngest son, six-month-old Naviyd. Usher isn’t trusting soon-to-be-ex Tameka, and thinks that she cheated on him around the time of conception. “People” have been telling Usher that Tameka did in fact get together with another guy … but if the kid truly isn’t his, and he’s had his suspicions from the beginning (or so the story goes) WHY did he wait six months to seriously question it?

4. Next stop, Wonderland? Lady GaGa, better known as the freaky-deaky singer who sleeps with her beloved bow, is causing a lot of head scratching (on our part) these days. The buttonheaded goon was photographed at an AIDS charity gala in Manchester on Monday, where she no doubt scared the living daylights out of all who attended. Is this woman aware that she resembles a Dr. Seuss character on a daily basis? (Just Jared)
5. Former Sopranos actress Drea de Matteo is teaming up with the cast of Desperate Housewives, and will be portraying the head honcho of an Italian family that moves to the neighborhood. Joining de Matteo in her new home is a ‘neurotic’ son and a landscape architect hubby. The ladies of Wisteria Lane better watch their backs, if they don’t fancy sleeping with the fishes! (People)
