Top 5 Picks from Around the Web

Etta James and Beyonce1. Cat fight! Etta James is none too pleased about Beyonce’s Inaugural performance, going by a recent concert in Seattle when the 71-year-old diva decided to unload on her loyal audience:

“You know, your President, the one with the big ears – he ain’t my President – had that woman singing for him at his Inauguration,” James declared. “She’s going to get her ass whooped.”

“How dare Beyonce sing my song that I been singing forever,” she went on to say. “Now I’m going to sing it for y’all.”

Is that a glass or two of wine talking back, or just one massively inflated ego? Judge for yourself here. (

2. Really, we assumed it would be a walk in the park. Olympian golden boy – and dope smoker – Michael Phelps had a heck of a time trying to explain that scandalous bong-guzzling photo to his mother. The unpleasant conversation brought back memories of his DUI days, a time in Michael’s life that he longs to forget. Phelps has been spending the last several days with his family, and admitted that the unfortunate stoner moment was a “stupid” mistake that “won’t happen again.” Get back in the pool Michael. (Omg!)

Jessica Simpson without makeup3. Feeling less than fresh this afternoon? Wishing that you looked a little more Red Carpet worthy? Then check out Jessica Simpson sans makeup! The currently curvy songbird ditched the CoverGirl on the way to her Michigan gig Wednesday, and we’re willing to bet a pair of mom jeans that she totally regrets the shiny blunder. (TMZ)

4. If Rob Pattinson’s sexy vampire portrayal got you going, then you will go positively gaga over this behind-the-scenes book. On March 17 every fan in America can pick up a copy of Twilight: Director’s Notebook by Catherine Hardwicke, which includes on-set secrets, storyboard sketches and exclusive photos. You know you’ll at LEAST flip through it to see if she snuck in a shot of Pattinson’s boy toy wardrobe fitting. (PerezHilton)

5. New mama Jessica Alba is actually a granny in disguise. Just kidding, but seriously who wears a girdle? The actress has revealed an interesting trick for getting into shape after pregnancy:

“I wore a girdle,” she disclosed in the March issue of Elle. “Eight weeks after my girlfriend had her baby, you could see her six-pack. She told me to put an elastic band around my waist – any kind of band or girdle works.”

Maybe it does pay off to channel your 80-year-old grandmother after all! (People)
