Lindsay Lohan is up to her ol’ courtroom shenanigans. After missing her flight back to LA this morning, she ended up bumming a ride in a private jet and showing up to her trial 48 minutes late (and in a terrifically horrible outfit). Oh, and she got glitter-bombed on her way into the courtroom ’cause why not?

-In the end, Lohan ended up taking a plea deal which involves fines, 30 days of community labour in NYC, 18 months of therapy, and 90 days in a locked rehab with absolutely no leaving. Good luck with that!

George Clooney and Stacy Keibler shot down those breakup rumours by going to dinner together in Berlin Saturday night. Dammit! I mean, um, I’m so happy for them.

Questlove‘s week-long master class on the gospel of Prince is a great read.

Ryan Seacrest and Julianne Hough (aka: the couple you never really believed anyway) have broken up.

Lil Wayne says he’s doing “good” (though still in the ICU) after reportedly suffering a seizure from ingesting “high amounts of codeine.” Sizzurp!

Prince Harry and the awesomely named Cressida Bonas enjoyed a date night in London this weekend.

Jessie J shaved her head for charity — and totally makes it work!

-I adore this Twitter photo of the cast of The East, including Alexander Skarsgård and Ellen Page, living it up at SXSW.

-Also, a lot of people are assuming Alexander and Ellen are dating. I am not one of them.

Bradley Cooper was photographed on the set of his new movie with perm rollers in his head. Let’s hope the “Sexiest Man Alive” title can’t be revoked.

-A documentary chronicling Rihanna‘s miserable 777 tour is set to air on Fox.

New Beyonce! That is all.

-Meanwhile, Connie Britton says her son once confused her with Beyonce. The kid knows his awesome southern belles!

Lindsey Vonn and Tiger Woods confirmed they’re dating. Just how hard did she hit her head in that crash?

Miley Cyrus continues to live in denial. She got a (possibly Liam Hemsworth-related) tattoo of two anatomically correct hearts, and insists the only reason she’s not wearing her engagement ring is because it’s getting fixed.

-Even though Barbara Walters has denied it, there’s still talk that Elizabeth Hasselbeck is not long for The View.

Justin Timberlake and Jimmy Fallon pulled off another history of rap. Maybe that’s why he kept Jessica Biel waiting outside a Broadway show for 20 minutes?

Kristen Stewart makes a “vocal cameo” in her mom’s new movie, which is just a fancy way of saying it’s her voice on the other end of a phone call in one scene.

Gwyneth Paltrow must really want to sell her new cookbook; she just opened up about a miscarriage that almost killed her. I wonder if it was around the same time as when Chris Martin attacked a paparazzi who was taking video of them leaving a hospital in 2008?

Rob Thomas may be busy with the Veronica Mars movie, but he insists that doesn’t mean the Party Down movie is dead.

-Also, Rob says that Max Greenfield (aka New Girl‘s Schmidt) is so onboard with reprising his VM role, he offered to do it for free and fly himself to the shoot. God, I love that guy!

Anna Kendrick is building a nerd army, one tweet at a time.

Eva Mendes twists the knife even more by gushing that Ryan Gosling is “adorable” around kids.

-Meanwhile, here’s a new clip of Eva and Ryan in their upcoming movie The Place Beyond the Pines.

Justin Bieber continues to spiral. He was reportedly kicked out of a fancy hotel in Paris for “bad behaviour” (though his rep says he left because he wanted to).

-I’ve been saying for a while that YouTube’s original programming is starting to pull my focus from TV, and now Hollywood is catching on. Simon Cowell and Reddit are teaming up for a new web series.

-Speaking of TV, Parks and Recreation continues to knock it out of the park (get it?) with their fake websites. Here’s Rent-a-Swag’s site, which is almost as good — but not quite — as

-The What Maisie Knew trailer is out. Not only did it get great buzz at TIFF and stars Alexander Skarsgård as a swoon-worthy father-figure, it features a Stars song!
