11. This woman Mary McCormack has been in 500 things, but I know her from West Wing, and from those posters for her new show, which are everywhere. She looks super-hot/dykey in those photos, but in real life she is het to the bone.

13. I love her dress, her breasts, all of it. Hey Paulina replaced Twiggy on America’s Next Top Model but then Tyra called her on her birthday and said Hey Paulina had too much ego, and between Tyra’s ego and Miss Jay’s hair and all the crying ladies, there was just no room for it and she got the boot. Luckily there is plenty of room in the universe for her to still be a supermodel of life and Sports Illustrated swimsuit editions.

18. I love Sia, I bought her album and I like to listen to Breathe Me and think about the last scene in Six Feet Under and cry. Her website will win a design award this year for sure (“That’s amazing, it looks like Stef drew it.” – Alex), tied with The Awl.

  1. Hey Guys!!! I want to see the video- I can’t wait. So yea, that dude with the girl crew in helmuts (very Lady Gaga-esk, don’t you think?) Well, his name is Storm Lee. http://www.myspace.com/stormlee

    Rant: I’d like to say that taking pictures on the red carpet is my least favorite thing. Why you ask? Because they give you a spot buried in this sea of sweaty photographers who spend the entire time YELLING at whoever happens to be standing in front of them. Everyone is also fighting over space. “ARE YOU NUMBER 11? THIS SAYS I’M NUMBER 11. YOU’RE IN MY SPOT! GET OUT OF MY SPOT!” I’m always afraid for my life when I shoot red carpets, which is like never, cause I hate it. ;)
