PUT THE SODA DOWN! Katy Perry doesn’t have an official endorsement deal with Pepsi, but that hasn’t stopped the singer from being targeted by several consumer advocacy groups. In yesterday’s edition of Variety, the Center for Science in the Public Interest and six other organizations placed a one-page ad shaming Katy Perry for promoting the soft drink. "Tobacco companies used glamorous celebrities and models to position smoking as hip, sexy and rebellious," the letter reads. "Today soda companies are using you and other celebrities to convince young people that drinking soda is hip, sexy and rebellious. 'Drink Pepsi and you can be cool like Katy Perry,' is the takeaway message for your young fans. 'Live for now' and worry about the health consequences later. Kids love you, Katy Perry. You count many millions of teens and tweens among your ‘KatyKats.' Their devotion to you has brought incredible commercial success and wealth. But being popular among children brings with it an enormous responsibility, Don't exploit that popularity by marketing a product that causes disease in your fans." Katy Perry doesn’t even have a formal contract with the company! Can she really be blamed for promoting an unhealthy lifestyle? I SAY NO!
The things you’ll do for a job! Jake Gyllenhaal is the latest actor to drop major weight for a movie, but he says it's really not that different from prepping for any role. He’s lost a little over 20 pounds. But even though Jake Gyllenhaal LOOKS different, his approach hasn't changed as he prepares to be in the movie, Nightcrawler. Jake Gyllenhaal said, "It's not different than getting into character for anything. It's more about believing where you are and being present where you are. Who's to say what the process is? I have a strange one … but I love what I do." Matthew McConaughey had to go through a similar process and looked SICKLY remember?
Robert Downey Jr. is having another AMAZING year. He was just named the Most Valuable Star of 2013 by Vulture. Things such as box office totals, studio value, likeability, Oscars, critics' scores, Twitter mentions and tabloid value were looked at when deciding exactly which Hollywood stars would make the list. Leonardo DiCaprio was named "The Star Who Started Smiling Again" and landed the number 2 spot. Jennifer Lawrence was named "The Breakthrough BFF" and was in third place on the top 100 list. The top five also included Sandra Bullock and Brad Pitt. Matt Damon fell to the number 19 spot and was named "The Star Who Slipped" after struggling with box office sales last year. Either way, congratulations to Robert Downey Jr.!
Uh oh! Looks like a secret romance blossomed on the set of Smash… Pictures have just surfaced showing Katherine McPhee kissing the show's director Michael Morris in a Hollywood parking lot. There's just one slight issue with the new couple: they're both currently married to other people. Katherine McPhee has been married to her husband since 2008 but the rumor is that she’s been separated from him for six months. Michael Morris is actually married to actress Mary McCormack and the couple has three daughters together.
But it looks like the two of them don’t care about hiding their affections for one another! They went a lunch date over the weekend and were spotted holding hands as they walked back to Katherine McPhee's car where they had a long make out session in the parking lot. No shame!
I wish I was getting this kind of paycheck!

According to my sources, Tina Fey and Amy Poehler will get up to a whopping 4 million dollars… EACH! For each performance! They asked for the deal and received it!

Tina Fey and Amy Poehler are also getting a huge perks package that includes use of the NBC/Comcast private planes as they prep for the awards! CHA-CHING!
Kelly Clarkson got married to her fiancé Brandon Blackstock over the weekend in an intimate ceremony, but now we’re learning who got to be there, or who DIDN’T get to be there. Well, looks like the ceremony was so small that the only guests were Brandon Blackstock’s two children. Even Kelly Clarkson’s own mother wasn’t there to see her walk down the aisle. Kelly Clarkson’s mother is saying she wasn’t there because “She said they were just so overwhelmed with the tour and they just decided to elope… But she didn’t want to hurt our feelings. She has had a lot on her plate and I’ve seen her schedule for the next month and Christmas. But we’re happy for her and she’s so happy. She was so afraid we might be upset. But we were fine with it…I had known that she was under a lot of stress. And we just wanted her to be happy and not stressed out…I think the biggest thing for us to do was to allow her to do what she wanted to do.” Even though Kelly Clarkson’s mother wasn’t there, she was told that she’ll still be able to enjoy the ceremony. Kelly Clarkson made a wedding video and they’ll get to see all of it. Would that be good enough for you?
