The Entertation Index: November 15

November 15, 2012

Bieber, Justin – Contrary to reports of his split with Selena Gomez, the 18-year-old pop star isn’t sure that the relationship is done.  What’s really creepy is that thousands of 40-something moms out there just got angry reading that.

Fieri, Guy – The celebrity chef opened his 500-seat Guy’s American Kitchen & Bar in Times Square this fall to a scathing New York Times review.  That sound you hear is thousands of people not giving a shit what the NYT says about a place that serves an appetizer called Guy-talian Nachos.

Obama, Michelle – The First Lady is a passionate and vocal fan of British TV series Downton Abbey, and was eagerly awaiting Season 3.  A few polite calls to higher-ups at the station got her the DVDs about a month and half before their U.S. release date (it’s already been released in the U.K.), but didn’t inure her to accusations of “string-pulling” and “abuse of power” in comments sections.  Folks, if this is the worst abuse of power associated with a first lady, we’re doing OK.

I thought there were laws against this type of stuff.

Olsen, Mary Kate – The (comparative adjective) Olsen twin was spotted at a Knicks game snuggling with boyfriend Olivier Sarkozy, 42-year-old half-brother to French ex-president Nicolas Sarkozy.  Pictures show the two being very affectio OMIGOD, WHAT IS THAT OLD MAN DOING TO THAT CHILD?!

Twilight – The premiere of Breaking Dawn this Friday ends the Twilight saga, but it turns out there was more drama than appears in the movie.  According to director Bill Condon, the movie almost received an R rating not for showing vampires being beheaded, but the accompanying sound effects.  Condon replaced the crunching sounds with the far more disturbing squees of tweens swooning over Robert Pattinson.

Wars, Star – With the script for Episode VII already in development, speculation abounds as to who might direct the next Star Wars installment now that Disney owns the rights.  Everyone from Quentin Tarantino to J.J. Abrams to John Favreau has been mentioned, including Guillermo Del Toro.  Yes, please, to all of them, and oh god no! to Brett Ratner, McG, and George Lucas.  Who would you like to see?
