Verizon just dropped their sponsorship of the Gwen Stefani/Akon tour after the video released on YouTube that showed his simulated humping of a 14-year-old (or 15-year-old depending on your news source) girl at his concert in Trinidad. Verizon didn’t give a reason for pulling their sponsorship, but it seems like a no-brainer. TMZ reports that he’s being threatened with prosection in Trinidad over the incident, which confuses me a bit since I’d read reports that it was supposed to be an 18-and-over show and if I had a 14-year-old who left the house dressed like that, I’d probably have locked her up. He’s crude, but it’s not like this is a huge surprise; he already had a dry-hump sandwich with a Tara Reid filling earlier in the year.
I may usually hate Gwen’s hair. It’s so stiff and crunchy looking in her flips, and her wigs don’t look much better. All in all, she looked great on the cover of Harper’s Bazaar with her ultra glamorous look this month. Isn’t it great to see her without that red lipstick? It’s so tired. The change is welcome, Gwen, so just keep it coming!
In case anyone wonders, my blogging her on Juicy Rumors is pretty much my own true self. I was born to blog about celebrity trainwrecks, because I just have no tact.
Based on tonight’s American Idol, it appears that Gwen Stefani may also be born to be a celebrity blogger. or at least go bowling with me to trash everyone else. The messed-up theme for tonight was “anything Gwen, anything No Doubt, or pretty much any other pop song if you can’t yodel.” Now I liked pretty much everything Gwen’s ever done up until this last album, which just lost me.

… before 2037. Via Mollygood, Worth1000 apparently held a contest designed to frighten the hell out of people. Depicting celebrities as they age, you can see frightening images of celebs if they didn’t get any work done as they age. While I know that the odds of that actually happening are between slim and none, I’ll still be having nightmares tonight. You know it’s a scary thing when Paris Hilton is the best looking of the lot of images.
A pretty rare photo of Gwen Stefani…a rare one of her without makeup, that is.
It’s weird to see her going casual for once, and I like it. I get so tired of the red lipstick in every photo of her (well, Christina too). It’s nice to see her acting like a normal mom. Her hair is messy & she’s not totally made up, but she doesn’t look like a slob…just relaxed. I love it!!
While the yodeling and overall non-musicality of last Saturday’s SNL performance by the usually uber-cool and uber-hot Ms. Stefani were certainly alarming enough, two things seem glaringly apparent.
The first mystery is whether or not that was actually Gwen Stefani up there. There is a distinct possibility that Melanie Griffith dragged out her costume from Cecil B. Demented and decided to yodel with a bunch of Harajuku Girls. Here’s hoping that was actually the case, and that Gwen hasn’t really gone off the deep end performance-wise.
