The Entertation Index: June 21
Duff, Hilary — After former Disney child star (and new mom) Hilary Duff sent gossip sites into a tailspin after she was spotted by paparazzi clutching a cigarette outside a Los Angeles nightclub, Duff took to twitter to explain that she was only holding it for a friend, tweeting “sorry guys, looks worse than it is,” to which the Huffington Post agreeably printed that they believe her. “Wait, wait wait,” a furious Lindsay Lohan exclaimed, elsewhere in L.A.. “You mean all this time, that’s all I had to do?”

Entourage — Yo what up, brah? Can I work in? Did you hear about the Entourage movie? Producer Mark Wahlberg told CNN that showrunner Doug Ellin is working on the script right now. Gonna be tight, yo. You want to to see it? You gonna wear your blue hat? Okay, I won’t wear my blue hat. We could totally get some Mike’s Hard Lemonade. You hear that? It’s the new LMFAO song. Check you later, bro. I’ll text you.

Foray, June — And now here’s something we hope you’ll really like: Sunday night, 94 year-old actress June Foray took home a Daytime Emmy award for her voice work on Cartoon Network’s The Garfield Show. It is her first Emmy, but it shouldn’t have been — Foray was also famously the voice for Bullwinkle & Rocky’s Rocky the Flying Squirrel and Natasha Fatale, Cindy Lou Who from How the Grinch Stole Christmas and Granny from countless Bugs Bunny cartoons. So yeah, it’s safe to say she’s earned it. Congrats to Ms. Foray.

Nash, Graham — The former Hollie and co-founder of sixties’ folk superstar act Crosby, Stills and Nash plans to chronicle his over fifty years of musicianship in an upcoming memoir for Random House’s Crown Archetype, which reportedly offered him hover seven figures. The book is slated for a fall 2013 release, and sources maintain Nash is currently hard at work trying to remember anything from 1961 to 1976.

Rises, The Dark Knight — This summer, there’s a new Batman film coming out. I know this because every day for the past month I’ve seen an advertisement for a new trailer, and exclusive clip, or exclusive footage one can only see by going to the website of one of this movies apparently one hundred thousand corporate sponsors. So here’s the latest for this week, brought to you by — why not? — Nokia. It will surely make you want to see the film. Or, if you’re so inclined, perhaps you can just download all the commercials and edit the entire thing together yourself. You clearly, by this point, have the necessities to do so.
