Jessica Simpson Had Her Baby
JESSICA SIMPSON gave birth to a baby boy on Sunday. This is the second child for Jessica and her fiancé ERIC JOHNSON. They named him ACE KNUTE JOHNSON.
And by the way . . . the "Knute" isn't in honor of NFL legend KNUTE ROCKNE. It was Eric's grandfather's name.
Jessica and Eric also have a daughter named Maxwell, who just turned a year old in May.
Jennifer Lopez Has Apologized After Performing for a Human Rights Violator
JENNIFER LOPEZ has apologized after performing for the president of Turkmenistan on Saturday. The problem is, he's a huge human rights violator, and apparently Jen's people didn't look into it enough.
Her rep released a statement yesterday that said, quote, "Had there been knowledge of human rights issues of any kind, Jennifer would not have attended."
They also pointed out that the concert was, quote, "not a government sponsored event or political in nature." And it was actually paid for by the China National Petroleum Corporation.
In addition to normal concert stuff, she also sang "Happy Birthday" . . . along with the line, "Happy birthday, Mr. President" . . . just not nearly as oversexed as Marilyn Monroe did it. According to her rep, it was a last-minute request.
The human rights thing is ironic because Jen has been involved with Amnesty International projects in Mexico that aim to PREVENT violence, specifically against women.
It's not clear how much Jen got for the gig, but it was reportedly more than a million bucks.
Yesterday, MIA FARROW suggested on Twitter that Jennifer donate the money she made.
So far, there's no word on that from Jen's camp.
Justin Bieber Wants to Get Married and Have a Family Young
JUSTIN BIEBER tells "Us Weekly" that he wants to get married and start a family YOUNG.
He adds, quote, "My grandparents Bruce and Diane Dale are my relationship role models. They love each other so much, after so many years! When I'm their age, I want to be as in love with my wife as my grandfather is with his."
Alec Baldwin Apologizes for His Homophobic Twitter Rant, But Also Makes Excuses
ALEC BALDWIN went on a homophobic Twitter rant against a gay reporter who said his wife was Tweeting during JAMES GANDOLFINI'S funeral. He called the guy a "queen" and a "little [B-word]", and threatened to beat him up.
He later apologized, and GLAAD quickly accepted.
Both Alec and Hilaria denied that she was tweeting.
The reporter in question, George Stark, is apparently gay. Alec's tweets included:
"[I'd] put my foot up your [effing] ass, George Stark, but I'm sure you'd dig it too much."
"I'm gonna find you George Stark, you toxic little queen, and I'm gonna [eff] you up."
"I want all of my followers and beyond to straighten out this [effing] little [B-word], George Stark."
In Baldwin's apology he said, quote, "My ill-advised attack on George Stark . . . had absolutely nothing to do with issues of anyone's sexual orientation.
"My anger was directed at Mr. Stark for blatantly lying and disseminating libelous information about my wife and her conduct at our friend's funeral service. As someone who fights against homophobia, I apologize."
But he also made a very lame attempt to explain that when he angrily calls a man a "queen", it has nothing to do with homophobia.
He said, quote, "A queen to me has a different meaning. It's somebody who's just above. It doesn't have any necessarily sexual connotations.
"To me a queen . . . I know women that act queeny, I know men that are straight that act queeny, and I know gay men that act queeny. It doesn't have to be a definite sexual connotation, or a homophobic connotation.
"To me those are people who think the rules don't apply to them."
