Adele Says Fanks But No Fanks to Seven-Figure Memoir Paycheck

Although Adele and her people have been meeting with Harper Collins to discuss a possible book deal (with a seven-figure offer), it won’t be a memoir because, at 24, she thinks she’s too young.

“Adele’s never been a really showy person. So it was always going to take a lot to get her to write her life story anyway. […] But even though she received a lucrative offer, her primary concern was that she doesn’t want to write a book about just 24 years. She feels she’d rather wait until she has more life experience to write about.” Fank you. [Belfast Telegraph]

Baby Goose is quickly becoming a parody of himself, but in the BEST WAY, and I love it. While filming his onscreen son’s baptism scene in The Place Beyond The Pines, he started to cry. “I didn’t know that was going to happen. I was just sitting in the church watching a baby to be baptised, and I don’t know why I was emotional, but I was.” (And furthermore: “The kid who plays my son – his name is Tony Pizza. It’s hard not to like a guy named Tony Pizza. We really hit it off.”) [Entertainmentwise]

Like the rest of us, Amanda Seyfried did not have ESPN about her former co-star Lindsay Lohan’s future downward spiral when the two shot Mean Girls.

She’s been feverishly following news of a possible musical adaptation on Broadway. “I desperately want to be Regina,” she says. When they were shooting, she had a great admiration for the film’s lead, Lindsay Lohan, though they weren’t really friends. “She’s talented.” A pause. “Was.” Another pause. “I mean, I don’t know…. She was so bright-eyed.”


Meanwhile, back at the ranch, Lindsay Lohan’s still looking for a rehab that’s not too hot, not too cold, but just right. [Page Six]

Jaden Smith is unclear about his possible romantic relationship with Kylie Jenner, although he does say she’s Pretty Baller and Pretty Awesome: “I went to New York and [Kylie] came too, and then she came here [to London] and surprised me, so that’s pretty baller. She’s one of my best friends. It’s pretty awesome.” [Hollywood Life]
