Are Kate Middleton's Wedding Day Vehicles Totally Cursed?

CelebritiesDirt Bag

Many brides opt for white stretch limousines, but on her Royal Wedding Day, Kate Middleton will ride to Westminster Abbey in a Rolls-Royce. Not just any Rolls! The 1977 Rolls-Royce Phantom VI that was damaged when Prince Charles and Camilla were attacked by student protesters in December. The car will be repaired, of course, but can you really hammer out the memories of an angry mob? Also, after the ceremony, if it’s sunny, Princess Catherine and Prince William will leave Westminster Abbey in an open-topped 1902 State Landau horse-drawn carriage, as a procession heads to Buckingham Palace. The State Landau, seen being polished here, was the same one used by Prince Charles and Princess Diana on their wedding day, and we all know how that turned out. Anyway, just joking, obviously the transportation isn’t cursed; Kate and Wills will have a wonderful wedding day and live happily ever after in a cottage with singing mice and bunnies who knit mittens. Duh. [E!, Today Show, Sydney Morning Herald]

Lady Gaga released a photograph that will be part of her album art for Born This Way, and in the image, Gaga is wearing prosthetic cheekbones and brows.

  • Robert De Niro is the fucking Don, so you’d better make his cocktail properly. It’s not a martini, it’s a halftini. Here’s the deal: Fill a shaker with ice to the top; squeeze in five lemon twists; use Absolut vodka and “a little extra” dry vermouth. Shake very well until ice cold. Very well. Strain the drink twice into a cold martini glass with three more twists. Serve. Big tip if you can manage not to mention the word Focker. [Page Six]
