Top 5 celebrity gossip blogs
We admit it, we can't get enough celebrity gossip — will Twilight stars Kristen Stewart and Robert Pattinson ever get back together? Who will be the next Mrs. Tom Cruise? Will Brad and Angelina add a seventh baby to their brood? These are the things we need (OK, want) to know and our favorite gossip blogs make sure we get the answers. Check out our current go-to blogs for up-to-the-minute celebrity news.
Get your celebrity fix from these five, fun gossip-filled reads.
The writers working on this comprehensive gossip site offer their take on all the latest news and reports coming out of Hollywood. Keep up-to-date on everything from scandals and embarrassing celebrity moments to fashion disasters, celebrity weddings and anything else positive or negative involving the stars. They report on what's happening and then offer a humorous, often tongue-in-cheek opinion on the lives of the rich and famous (or infamous). At the time of writing, top stories included Prince Harry's recent nude-in-Vegas scandal (Yikes!), Miley Cyrus' hair, Katie Holmes' divorce settlement and Halle Berry's custody battle.
By far one of the best and most well-written gossip sites out there, Elaine (Lainey) Lui serves up a perfect mix of sophistication and snark on her well-known gossip blog. The eTalk correspondent has a soft spot for several stars, including David Beckham, Colin Firth, Tina Fey and Colin Farrell (whom she worked out next to while in LA to cover the Oscars last year), but she isn't shy about hating on others — the entire Lohan family, Paris Hilton and Tori Spelling, to name a few. Her writing is well-informed, snappy and easy to read, and along with the gossip, she provides in-depth book and movie reviews. We especially like her smart, analytical take on the world of celebrities.
For a much faster-paced, as-it-happens look at celebrity gossip, Perez Hilton is your go-to destination for information about the stars. Hilton has toned down his signature biting commentary in recent years but still provides a healthy dose of sarcasm and colorful opinions about everyone from Justin Bieber to the cast of Glee. Expect short posts and a near-constant stream of image-heavy updates. Though he's just as likely to post a photo of Kate Hudson eating a sandwich as he is more newsworthy items, you can be sure he has his ear to the ground where celebrities are concerned. If anything happens in Hollywood — from Angelina Jolie getting a new tattoo to Madonna leaving the gym — Hilton knows about it and makes sure his blog readers do, too.
Go Fug Yourself
If you're in the mood to laugh at celebrities, then this site — which covers the best and worst of red carpet and celeb fashion — is a must-visit. The writing crackles with wit, and we love the no-holds-barred approach to the opinions offered on what everyone from Rihanna to Nicole Kidman should and definitely should not be wearing. But before you think they're just in the gossip business to skewer the likes of Reese Witherspoon and Miley Cyrus, their "Well Played" column gives kudos to well-dressed stars and showcases their more stylish choices. Recent highlights include Serena Williams in a body-hugging red dress, Olivia Munn in a lacy pink mini and Kate Middleton looking casually chic at the recent summer games.
Pink is the New Blog
From movie news and on-set photos from films currently in production, to new celebrity couples, breakups and scandals, you can be sure to stay in-tune with what's going on in Hollywood with this snappy blog. With the tagline, "Everybody's business is my business," you can expect lots of details about whatever celebrity news is being reported on, be it Jennifer Aniston's engagement to Jessica Alba debuting a new 'do on Twitter.
