The Entertation Index: April 12

April 12, 2010

Downey Jr., Robert –– The Iron Man himself tells Britain’s Daily Express about Mickey Rourke’s odd motivations for crying onscreen, revealing that Rourke  “would have someone holding pictures of recently deceased pets off camera to make him feel sad or whatever for a scene.” Downey Jr.’s methods were much simpler; he’d have someone offscreen hold up DVD copies of Air America and The Singing Detective, which tended to do the trick.

Frusciante, John — BBC 6 in the UK, after a rigorous process and audience voting, announced Friday that John Frusciante is the “best guitarist of the last 30 years.” This, of course, makes perfect sense because — wait, who the hell is John Frusciante again? He’s the former lead guitar for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, and he’s currently in a band with Duran Duran’s John Taylor, who you also don’t remember. So look for one guy from Duran Duran and the greatest guitarist of the last 30 years on tour soon, I guess.

Gaga, Lady — The outrageous diva tells press that she’s single and celibate, explaining to reporters that “Even Lady Gaga can be celibate. You don’t need to have sex to be loved.” I’m sure that’s the reason, and that it has nothing to do with the fact that it’s very difficult and frightening to make love to someone wearing an iron facemask and covered in paper maché, wicker and barbed wire.

Lynch, David — The visionary filmmaker may possibly have a sequel to his avant-garde Mulholland Drive in the early stages of production right now, according to an actress who worked with Lynch on the original. Admittedly, the movie could be about anything and we won’t know if it’s a sequel or not, since the first one’s all over the place. But that presumedly won’t stop countless critics from pretending they understand it.

Montag, Heidi — The Hills star — who by now is officially part cyborg — showed off her new F-cup breasts this weekend during a pool party hosted at Las Vegas’ new Aria hotel. The last time I saw two things that big and made of mylar and silicone, several teams of handlers were ushering them down 42nd Street in New York City on Thanksgiving morning by a host of pullies and ropes.

Shore, Jersey — MTV has announced that — after toying with the idea of sending the cast to South Beach for a second season — Jersey Shore will indeed return to the Jersey Shore, and have slated the premiere for this summer on July 29. Those of you living in the coastal New Jersey area can, with valid drivers’ license or proof of residence, receive a discounted hepatitis-C vaccination at any area major retail pharmacy between now and July 20. First come first serve.
